Fox News Source: “Exterminate Jew Power

Yesterday Fox News, living up to their reputation as the media arm of the Republican Party, did their part to abet John McCain’s new campaign strategy, airing a Sean Hannity-hosted hit job against Barack Obama that featured as its star witness, Andy Martin. And who is he?

From TPM:

“Martin previously crawled out from under a rock according to Matthew Mosk in the WP, to “take credit for posting the first article to assert that the Illinois senator was a Muslim.” […]

According to no less a source than the Unification Church‘s impeccably right-wing Washington Times of December 22, 1999:

“In 1986, when Mr. Martin ran as a Democrat for Connecticut’s 3rd Congressional District seat under the name “Anthony R. Martin-Trigona”, his campaign committee filed papers saying its purpose was to “exterminate Jew power in America and impeach U.S. District Court of Appeals judges in New York City.””

The Washington Times‘ reporter, Ralph Z. Hallow, went on to say: “a Connecticut federal judge finally barred him from filing any more federal lawsuits without permission. The judge said Mr. Martin has pursued legal actions with ‘persistence, viciousness, and general disregard for decency and logic.'”

“In a New York bankruptcy case, he referred to a judge as a “crooked, slimy Jew.” During the bankruptcy dispute, he filed a civil-rights lawsuit claiming Jewish bankruptcy judges and lawyers were conspiring to steal his property. He asked a court to bar “any Jew from having anything to do with plaintiff’s property.”

In another motion in the case, he wrote: “I am able to understand how the Holocaust took place, and with every passing day feel less and less sorry that it did, when Jew survivors are operating as a wolf pack to steal my property.”””

It seems that there is no depth to which Fox News won’t sink to aid their Republican allies.

Between this and Sarah Palin‘s praise for a minister after she listened to him pray for Christian men and women to wrest control of business and banks from “the Israelites,” it seems that McCain and Palin will have the anti-Semitic, hate-monger vote locked down.

    Malicious, Fear-Mongering RJC € ¢â’ ’¼Push Poll€ ¢â’ ’½ Targets Jewish Voters

    Jews from all denominations and political parties are outraged at the techniques being used by the Republican party and the McCain campaign to scare Jewish voters and distract them from the real issues that matter in this election. We at Jews for Obama are determined to alert you to this negative campaigning and reveal who is behind it.

    The most recent smear you need to watch out for originates from the Republican Jewish Coalition. Throughout the campaign, the RJC has passed on many opportunities to discuss the substantive issues which differentiate the candidates. Instead, the RJC apparently believes that its role is to try to convince voters that everyone associated with Senator Obama is anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, or both, irrationally and absurdly applying these labels even to ardently pro-Israel Orthodox Jews and Senators who have consistently voted with AIPAC for decades.

    This time, the RJC has engaged in the universally despised tactic of € ¢â’ ’¼push polling.€ ¢â’ ’½ According to politico.com , the RJC€ ¢â’ ’¹s supposed € ¢â’ ’¼poll asked voters their response to negative statements about Obama, including reported praise for him from a leader of the Palestinian terror group Hamas and a friendship early in his career with a pro-Palestinian university professor. Some Jewish Democrats who received the poll € ¢â’ ’³ including a /New Republic/ writer who lives in Michigan € ¢â’ ’³ were outraged by the poll, describing it in interviews as € ¢â’ ’¸ugly€ ¢â’ ’¹ and disturbing.€ ¢â’ ’½

    Senior ABC News correspondent Jack Tapper quotes one target of the poll , Ben Cohen: € ¢â’ ’¼It was evocative of a time and a kind of politics that I would never want to see rise in America. You shouldn€ ¢â’ ’¹t scare people to get elected € ¢â’ ’³ Jewish people have experienced that before really horrifically.€ ¢â’ ’½

    Needless to say, the smears in this € ¢â’ ’¼poll€ ¢â’ ’½ have been thoroughly debunked by many non-partisan Web sites, including Snopes
    , PolitiFact.com
    , and FactCheck.org , as well as by Obama€ ¢â’ ’¹s FightTheSmears.com and our Jews for Obama€ ¢â’ ’¹s very own React! site .
