BRATTLEBORO -- Visitors to Brattleboro's post office Monday were greeted by a provocative image - President Barack Obama wearing what appeared to be an Adolph Hitler-style mustache.
The picture adorned a table set up by LaRouche Political Action Committee, a controversial group tied to politician Lyndon LaRouche, a former presidential candidate advocating for Obama's removal from office.
The display, which included a resolution to impeach Obama, was staffed by two LaRouche representatives who said they were not authorized to give their names.
They said they had traveled from Boston and acknowledged a "mixed reception" in Brattleboro, where they planned to stay only one day before moving on.
Asked about the altered Obama photo, one staffer said: "The image does grab more attention."
LaRouche's website claims that he and his political committee "are what stand between you and an otherwise inevitable collapse of civilization."
His literature includes references to Obama as a "dictator" and predictions of a global financial collapse. He advocates for restoration of the Glass-Steagall Act, banking regulations that were repealed in 1999.
The Brattleboro display included a promotion for Rachel Brown, a "LaRouche Democrat" campaigning for Massachusetts' 4th Congressional District. That seat currently is held by retiring Democratic Rep. Barney Frank.
