Andy Martin for president

Self-proclaimed Internet powerhouse and “King of the Birthers” Andy Martin is the first to announce his candidacy for president on the Republican side. Martin said on WTPL radio:

“I’m going to have a tremendous impact on the presidential election, not because I’m the frontrunner. I mean, clearly at this point I’m not,” he said. “But I’ll be driving the agenda in the Republican Party.”

    Well, I think this professional quote on Martin sums it up best:

    Martin had been described by state psychiatrists as having a “moderately severe character defect manifested by well-documented ideation with a paranoid flavor and a grandiose character”

    Sounds like Andy Martin wants to aspire to being the next Lyndon LaRouche….

    Well, I guess they do have a few things in common – anti-semitism, delusional conspiracy theories, mental instability, extremely overblown sense of themselves, hatred of Obama, and a desire to endlessly run as political candidates, with no credible chance of even being able to do well enough in a primary to ever be more than just a historical footnote.

    His 1996 run for the Florida State Senate came unraveled when it was revealed that he’d named his campaign committee for his 1986 congressional run “The Anthony R. Martin-Trigona Congressional Campaign to Exterminate Jew Power in America.” Just before the election, he assaulted two cameramen from WPTV, the NBC affiliate in West Palm Beach. He was convicted of criminal mischief and sentenced to a year in jail. He was freed pending appeal, but made personal attacks on the judge while on the way out of the courtroom. The judge held Martin in criminal contempt of court and sentenced him to seven months in jail. However, he was mistakenly let out of jail after only a month. Martin never returned, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. If he is ever arrested, he will have to serve 16 months in jail. The warrant was still outstanding at least as of the time of Martin’s 2008 Senate run, but he said the issue is being “resolved.”

    In his motion for the 1983 bankruptcy case, he called the judge “a crooked, slimy Jew who has a history of lying and thieving common to members of his race.” In another motion that year, Martin stated, “I am able to understand how the Holocaust took place, and with every passing day feel less and less sorry that it did.” He went on to say that “Jew survivors are operating as a wolf pack to steal my property.” When later pressed in an interview about his remarks, Martin claimed that the anti-Semitic comments were inserted into his court papers by malicious judges.
