My feelings about it? Hmm...I'd say he's an adequate, though somewhat mediocre, narrator.

Lyndon LaRouche is a fucking lunatic and so are his followers.

And? Beltran still has the right to peddle his wares to whoever will pay him.

I don't think anyone was questioning his right to do so, I think the issue was our feelings about it.

I have no feelings about it, lots of people support all kinds of crazy shit. Just another day on Planet Earth.

Robert Beltran has every right to work for LaRouche, and I have every right to look down on him for it. He could have done something that left him some self-respect, like porn.

Re: How do you feel about Beltran doing narrations for LaRouche?

The couple moments I listened to were adequate but hardly exceptional. Never really taken by Beltran's performance in Trek, and not particularly taken by his voice. Sounds like Beltran reading. Good for him.

As for LaRouche, don't know enough about him to hold an opinion

^^^Only if it's good porn.

As to LaRouche, let me just tell people that for a time he was vociferously propagating the notion the Elizabeth II was a drug baron. Given her vast wealth, some connection, meaningful or coincidental, between drugs and one or more enterprises might be drawn. That makes this claim one of his saner ones.

On the other hand, his use of physical violence against C the Communist Party and other assorted leftists back in the Seventies would surely inspire deep reverence for him on the part of some members here.

Sure, LaRouche used violence against Communists, but what makes you think it was personal? His people like to use violence and the threat of violence against all sorts of folks all across the ideological spectrum.

Leftists, right-winters, liberals, conservatives, libertarians, socialists, Tea Partiers and Occupiers -- if there's one place we can all come together, it's in acknowledging that Lyn LaRouche is a scumbag and his sycophants are cult members.
