Attempts to Con Jewish Voters About Obama

Although Jewish voters represent only a very small percent of the population, there certainly seems to be considerable effort to scare Jewish voters away from voting for Obama. Yesterday I noted the attempts of the Clinton campaign to use race to create a wedge with Jewish voters. There was another report yesterday from Christopher Hayes at The Nation showing how Jewish voters are being conned by an anti-Semite.

Hayes reminds viewers of research he did in the past which connected the views expressed in the anti-Obama emails to Andy Martin:

On August 10, 2004, just two weeks after Obama had given his much-heralded keynote speech at the DNC in Boston, a perennial Republican Senate candidate and self-described “independent contrarian columnist” named Andy Martin issued a press release. In it, he announced a press conference in which he would expose Obama for having “lied to the American people” and “misrepresent[ed] his own heritage.”

Martin raised all kinds of strange allegations about Obama but focused on him attempting to hide his Muslim past. “It may well be that his concealment is meant to endanger Israel,” read Martin’s statement. “His Muslim religion would obviously raise serious questions in many Jewish circles where Obama now enjoys support.”

A quick word about Andy Martin. During a 1983 bankruptcy case he referred to a federal judge as a “crooked, slimy Jew, who has a history of lying and thieving common to members of his race.”
