NHGOP Chairman Jack Kimball made the following statement today regarding Andy Martin’s anti-Semitic statements:
“At the time that the Contoocoock Valley Republicans invited Mr. Martin to address their organization, they were unaware of his past statements regarding Judaism. Mr. Martin’s virulent, anti-Semitic views do not reflect the values of the Republican Party and they are abhorrent to all decent people.
"As Republicans we are the party of Lincoln, the party of Reagan. We have always stood and fought for freedom and liberty for all people and we embrace the free exchange of ideas and differing political philosophy. However, as decent human beings, and as Republicans, we all draw the line when it comes to hate. As such, the CVR Chairman, JP Marzullo, and I have agreed that it would be inappropriate for Mr. Martin to address their organization and he has been notified accordingly.
"As defenders of freedom and individual liberty, the Republican Party will always stand with the Jewish people when it comes to combating anti-Semitism and hateful rhetoric. I want to be very clear - both as Chairman of the NHGOP and as an American, I fully reject Mr. Martin's statements in this regard.”
