I can’t even.
Over the weekend, a picture began circulating that claimed to show Martin in a less-than-flattering light: shirtless, sagging pants, and giving the finger to the camera.
The image quickly circulated across blogs and websites, with many claiming it as evidence that Martin was not as innocent as family and supporters claimed, as well as alleging media bias.
There is one problem to that claim: the picture is not Trayvon Martin.
As I pointed out on Saturday, these images are coming straight from the Breitbrats via Stormfront.
Over the weekend on Twitter, I asked a couple of Breitbrats about these photos. They kept accusing me of not wanting the “real pictures” of Trayvon to be released because it doesn’t “fit my narrative.” They spewed paranoid talking points about how the librul media is using lightened photos of Trayvon in order to make him seem more sympathetic. More innocent. Yeah. Marinate on that for a minute.
And, when I asked them where they got these photos, they would reply “a website” — real vague-like. Breitbrat Dan Riehl claims to have gotten the photo (which he now admits is not a photo of Trayvon Martin) from “a reader” — real vague-like.
Look: if someone is circulating thug photos of Trayvon Martin, ask them where they got the photos. If they say “a website” or “a reader” (as Dan Riehl and other brain-deficients have done) then I think it’s safe to assume they got the photos from Stormfront.
Post-racial America! Ain’t it grand?
It’s all I can do not to dump a bottle of single-malt over my head while screaming at the sky. I keep trying to make sense of these fail-clowns when there’s no sense to be made. A racist mind is an addled mind. I just need to stop thinking about it because my brain cannot process it when they desperately try to make the case that they’re not racist while being really fucking racist.
