Illinois GOP Senate Candidate Calls Out Rep. Kirk For Alleged Homosexuality

The Senate race is already heating up in Illinois after GOP primary candidate Andy Martin (left) ran a negative ad accusing Rep. Mark Kirk (R-IL) of being gay.

Martin has achieved a degree of infamy for anti-Semitic remarks and his fostering of the rumor that Barack Obama is a Muslim.

In the ad, Martin states “I am fighting for the facts about Mark Kirk . . . Illinois Republican leader Jack Roeser says there is a ‘solid rumor that Kirk is a homosexual.’ Roeser suggests that Kirk is part of a Republican Party homosexual club. Lake County Illinois Republican leader Ray True says Kirk has surrounded himself with homosexuals. Mark Kirk should tell Republican voters the truth.”

In 1996, Martin (a former journalist) ran for a Florida State Senate seat with a campaign committee named “The Anthony R. Martin-Trigona Congressional Campaign to Exterminate Jew Power in America.” In a 1983 bankruptcy case, Martin reportedly called the judge “a crooked, slimy Jew who has a history of lying and thieving common to members of his race.”

It will be interesting to see what steps the RNC and Republican leaders take in the face of such homophobia and intolerance.

  1. kstreetsexual is a good one Byron! Keeps those bathroom stalls really busy in the Senate, The WH and the House. A lot of wide stances going on at those places!!!

  2. In order to get to the ‘bottom’ of this issue, let he or she who has not engaged in anal titillation please stand up.

    We humans are curious and sexually innovative creatures and most of us would not like all our little ‘secrets’ put under public scrutiny. Would we?

  3. as long as he is not a “Kstreetsexual”.

    Kstreetsexual – one who blows K Street lobbyists for financial gratification.

  4. This is a great idea from Glenn Greenwald:

    “I’ve long thought that the solution to the cheap, cost-free moralizing that leads very upstanding people like Karl Rove to want to ban same-sex marriages (which they don’t want to enter into themselves, and thus cost them nothing) is to have those same “principles” apply consistently to all marriage laws. If Karl Rove, Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh and their friends and followers actually were required by law to stay married to their wives — the way that “traditional marriage” was generally supposed to work — the movement to have our secular laws conform to “traditional marriage” principles would almost certainly die a quick, quiet and well-deserved death.

    UPDATE: Actually, this is Rove’s second divorce. His first wife was “Valerie Wainright, a wealthy Houston woman from the Bush social circle, but the marriage could not withstand his consuming preoccupation with politics.” They divorced after three years of marriage. So the one that was just terminated was Rove’s second “traditional marriage” to end without death doing them part. His next traditional marriage will be to his third wife.

    Did I mention that Rove believes it’s vital that our secular laws enforce precepts of “traditional marriages” and bar everything else?” (his column today, one of them!)

  5. I think Kirk would take the conservative christian vote if he could get it. He sought Palin’s endorsement but she refused. Conservative christians are not a huge factor in Illinois elections but they do play a role in the republican primaries.

  6. SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Top Illinois Republicans condemned a perennial candidate’s decision Monday to air a political ad questioning the sexual orientation of the party’s front-runner in the U.S. Senate race.

    The Republican Party said it would no longer consider Andy Martin a legitimate candidate.

    Mr. Martin, a professional carpetbagger, was trawling for the “conservative Christian” vote.

  7. Damn Etch-a-Skekchers.

    With their X-Y axial controls and fiddling about in search of the perfect diagonal! So seductively destructive with their shaking about that leaves them a helpless lay about with all the composure of a tabula rasa! Fiends I tell you! Fiends!!! They just want our women! Why I outghta . . .

    Oh, I’m sorry! Was I thinking out loud again?

  8. JT:

    “Homophobia remains one of the last socially acceptable forms of discrimination and hatred.”


    I would add to that list the obese, atheists, and fans of Etch-a-Sketch.

  9. rcampbell:

    I applaud this all-to-rare outpouring of ethics and civility from the Repubs. Now if they could do something about Ann Coulter.

  10. There is nothing more helpless and irresponsible than a man in the depths of an ether binge.

  11. You know many have pointed to the Bush/Saudi connection. With the recent passing of Percy Sutton maybe it’s time we revisit Obama’s Saudi connection.

    Percy Sutton in his own words.

  12. Can any of the lawyers here give an opinion to this.

    Like why the need to change it and why now. Some are saying it opens the door to arrest war criminals ie. Bush/Cheney

    Last Thursday, December 17, 2009, The White House released an Executive Order “Amending Executive Order 12425.” It grants INTERPOL (International Criminal Police Organization) a new level of full diplomatic immunity afforded to foreign embassies and select other “International Organizations” as set forth in the United States International Organizations Immunities Act of 1945.

    By removing language from President Reagan’s 1983 Executive Order 12425, this international law enforcement body now operates – now operates – on American soil beyond the reach of our own top law enforcement arm, the FBI, and is immune from Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

  13. Hmm, this is certainly a legitimate campaign topic for Republicans… Rep. Mark Kirk might be gay. And, as most gays are liberal, he might be a liberal as well. And as statistics show that liberals are predominantly jewish, Rep. Kirk is certainly a Jew. And as Karl Marx and Leon Trotsky were jewish, Rep. Kirk is therefore a communist… And as Rep. Kirk is a communist, and Obama is rumored to be a communist, chances are that Kirk is in cahoots with Obama. As Obama was born a Muslim communist, Rep. Kirk is hence a Muslim communist Jew out there to subvert America from the inside. And how do we prevent such nefarious development to occur? We need to “exterminate” all Jewish Muslim communists and all the activist judges bent on implementing their agenda–starting with Rep.Kirk. Wait a minute! As “this country was built on judeo-christian values,” the “judeo” foundational part has to be deracinated…
