Andy Martin – Who Is He?

Category: In The MediaChrisM @ 4:37 am

I assume you will have come across the rumour that Barack Obama is a Muslim? You can obviously argue over whether this should be considered relevant when it comes to his bid for becoming the president, but the fact remains that he would not stand a chance of being elected if this were proved to be so. How did this rumour start? Apparently, a gentleman named Andy Martin originally put forward the theory in 2004. The Republicans were only too happy to extend the lifespan of this theory, as it obviously would benefit their chance of coming to power. However, Andy Martin has an incredibly chequered past, with severe paranoia issues, anti-semitism (back in 1983, 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.” !) So even though Steven Schmidt is the public face for this campaign strategy, it looks as though Mr McCain actually took his cue from a complete nut case with some revolting opnions.
