Two men from the LaRouche Party manned a table in front of the Black Avenue post office Tuesday, campaigning to elect Summer Shields to represent the 8th District in the U.S. Congress, the seat now held by U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi.
At 4:45 p.m. they were handing out fliers and talking to people walking and driving by about the positive message of "FDR's policies and intentions." To one side were posters showing FDR as a young man, reading, "He saved the American people," next to another of President Obama with a Hitler mustache that said, "He saved Wall Street speculators."
"We first put the mustache on Obama in May '09 (due to his health care policies) based on the same type of fascist cost-cutting measures used in '39 by Hitler," said Jobe, 21, who declined to give his last name.
Some people called out negative expletives; others stopped to talk.
"I just talked to an 83-year-old man," said Delante, who also declined to give his last name. "We discussed FDR and the need for a real president."
He said they had been at the spot since about 10:30 a.m. and were from the San Francisco LaRouche Party office.
