Wikipedia

Wikipedia does not hold back when compiling a biography, which might indicate he broached taboo subjects, with articles like "George Bush: Crack Kingpin of the 1980s"[1].

Wikipedia states he "was an American political activist, convicted fraudster, cult leader and founder of the LaRouche movement," which "engaged in conspiratorial beliefs and violent and/or illegal activities" and "created disinformation" Later in the 1980s, criminal investigations led to convictions of several LaRouche movement members, including LaRouche himself."

Another taboo subject was the "October Surprise" allegation, namely that in October 1980 Ronald Reagan's campaign staff conspired with the Iranian government during the Iran hostage crisis to delay the release of 52 American hostages held in Iran, with the aim of helping Reagan win the 1980 United States presidential election against Jimmy Carter. The Iranians had agreed to this, according to the theory, in exchange for future weapons sales from the Reagan administration.

The analysis was later confirmed by former Iranian President Abolhassan Banisadr[2] and other sources.
