Images of sitting President Barack Obama with a painted on mustache reminiscent of Adolph Hitler.
But the message of the two activists, speaking on behalf of Diane Sare for Governor and representing the LaRouche Political Action Committee, was gentle and respectful a stark contrast to their attention-getting imagery.
And that was precisely the point.
“We are here today to sign members up to a national political action committee,” said Teaneck resident Daniel Burke.
According to Burke, he was there to raise awareness of what his group refers to as the preparation of population for a “mass murder austerity.”
“Unless Congress immediately reinstates the FDR-era Glass-Steagall action we are on the road to a massive bail in,” Burke said. “The money will be taken in contributions like we saw in Cypress.”
Burke said his group feels Obama should be removed from office in the same action as the Glass-Steagal reinstatement. But the movement to impeach the president was only one of the reasons Burke was in downtown Morristown today.
“We are also running a campaign for Governor,” Burke said. “Our candidate, Diane Sare, was excluded from the debates tonight at William Patterson. So we will be there tonight protesting.”
Burke said the reaction he received in Morristown had varied.
“Some people are very excited,” Burke said. “But many people are scared. What we need now is calm and resolute leadership around a program that will function.”
Burke said that LaRouchePAC founder Lyndon LaRouche is a part of that leadership plan.
“I call on the American people to demand Congress stop acting like a bunch of corrupt fools, going along with the Wall Street Obama swindle,” LaRouche said in a statement. “Pass Glass-Teagal, wipe out the power of Wall Street and their European allies and get on with the business of reviving the nation.”
