Andy Martin says Greek-Americans should send Mark Kirk a message: The Republican Party will be boycotted as long as it is led by racist drunks and punks such as Pat Brady and Mark Kirk

Martin says Kirk’s attempts to demonize Alexi Giannoulias by connecting Giannoulias to economic problems in Greece is nothing but ethnic McCarthyism.

Martin says he is taking the lead in “taking down” Kirk because Illinois’ Greek-American leaders are afraid to stand up and condemn the bigotry of the Republican Party

(CHICAGO)(September 5, 2010) Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin will hold a Palm Beach news conference Sunday, September 5th to accuse Mark Kirk of being “racist, repulsive and repugnant” for attacking Alexi Giannoulias based on the financial crisis in Greece.

“Mr. Kirk and his slimy patron, the drunken brawler Pat Brady, have been attacking Alexi Giannoulias as a Mafioso. They have now begun to demonize Giannoulias for problems in Greece having nothing to do with Giannoulias:

“I do not support Alexi Giannoulias, have never spoken to him, and have no connection with his cmampaign. But my mother’s parents immigrated form Greece, and they came to the Chicago area about a hundred years ago to work on building the railroads. My fmaily was invoved in foundng some of the earliest community association of the Greek-American commnity. F mylate Uncle Bill Vasiliou was still alive he would be outraged by Kirk’s demagogery.

“Where are Illinois’ ‘usual’ Greek-Ameircan leaders? Are they afraid to stand up for Greece? Are they political hypocrites? If so they are cowards, and they are no better than Mark Kirk.

“I am not an ‘ethnic’ poltiican and I usually run away from appeals based on parentage. But I was baptised in the Greek Orthodiox church and I will not allow Kirk to conduct his slimy polticis and to denigrate Greek-Americans with his malignat campaign tactics.

“If anyone should be consdiered an agent of a foreign governent, it is Mark Kirk. Kirk takes campaign cash to be a mouthpiece for the Israeli military junta in Tel Aviv. It is Kirk who sabotaged Ameirca’s foreign policy interests for campaign cash, not Alexi Giannoulas. Kirk is the one who lied about ‘weapons of mass desrtruciton’ in Iraq the same way he lied about his own military career. Kirk drew us into a war that virtually bankrupted ordinary Americans, damaged our economy and cost thosuands of damaged and dead troops.

“Kirk has a lot of nerve bragging about his Navy service, where he has spent two decades doing little more than enjoying buggery. Kirk’s attempt to link Giannoulias to the financial problems of the European Union are laughable. Kirk’s compaprisonof his disgracvefuil embarrassment to the nacvy, with Giannoulias’ basketball playins is a complete non sequitur. Kirk is a disgrae to Ameircan to the navy uniform, and to the republican Party.

“Kirk’s anti-Greek smears are desperate acts by a desperate man who was exposed as America’s greatest liar, and the biggest embarassment to the U. S. Navy in years.

“Spain has similar financial problems to those in Greece. I don’t see Kirk insulting Hispanics. Ireland is a financial mess. Should we blam Pat Brady for being a drunken fisticuffer and hold him accountable for Irelands economy? Not at all. Even I won’t blame Brady for Ireland’s prblems. Brady has enough problems of his own. He’s in bed with Mark Kirk.

“The bottom line: bgoh Kirk and Giannoulias have been rejected by Illinois voters. Both men are flawed in different ways. But they should make their cases to the voters without engaging in ehtnic smears. Kirk’s anti-Greek behvauior is an embarrassment to the Republcian Party, locally and nationally.

“If Mr. Kirk expects to continue to represent the reopublcian party, ansd e may decide to step down ater we dump more dirtonhim in a few days, he should not inslting Greek-Ameircans and stop tryignto link Giannoulias to the naitonof Greece. If he keeps it up, Kirk is going to be very unhappy whenI expose his unsvaiorty links to Israel.

“Greece has been aloyal friend to Ameircan, through Wirld war II, Krea and in the Cold war. Tyo see Kirk smearing Greece to gain a few votes from neanderthanl voters tells you what kindof a senator Kirk would be:” divisive, coirrupt and totally withotu nay moral scruples.

“Kirkis a despciablehiman beign whio devastated and destroye dhis wife,andleft her an emotional basket case. Our investigaiton of the Kimberly Vertoli ragedy is continuing, as oa are out other forthcomign exposes onKirk;s unfitness to hold any publicoffice.

“I was theperson who expose Kirk’s milutary lies and I exposed him as a nacvy imposter long before thenaitonal media did so. Weer have more dirt, and we aimto see that the Illinosipubklic knows who Kirk really is. He is a sick, sick man,” Matin will charge.

Martin is on vacation visiting relatives in Florida and also meeting with supporters to plan the 2012 defeat of Barack Obama.
