Good work.

So you know that “gangsta” photo that right wing shitheads have been using to justify Trayvon’s murder? Yeah, it’s not even him.

The neo-Nazis over at Stormfront were the first to start passing off this photo of one, “Trayvon Martin,” (Here’s the link to Facebook) in an attempt to show that the now deceased Trayvon Martin was some sort of gangster. Judging from many of the comments, I guess some folks are literally attempting to justify a possible murder – on their way to church!

One small detail I must point out; this photo that is being passed around on Facebook and right-wing blogs, is NOT the same Trayvon Martin who was gunned down by George Zimmerman.

I’m just waiting for someone to tell me that, while the photo may be fake, the story is still true. Ugh… Conservatives have a way of never letting things like facts get in their way.

UPDATE 10:24 am: Breitbart.com blogger Dan Riehl has now admitted that “it doesn’t appear to be the same Trayvon Martin.”

Much more at the link above.

A man holds up a can of AriZona fruit punch beverage, a bag of Skittles balanced on top. Several hundred people gathered to chant and march in the rain for two hours, demanding justice for Trayvon Martin and jail for his killer, George Zimmerman.

Weapons of mass destruction right there.

Personally, I think it’s Samuel L Mothafuckin-Jackson.

If you think Politico commenters could find nothing to get angry about in regards to the Trayvon Martin story, you’d be wrong. HyperVocal has some pretty shocking lowlights.

Oy. On the other hand, Gobama.

I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was.

Guns don’t kill people. Hoodies kill people.

Apparently a defendant who claims self-defense doesn’t have to prove it — only say so. Holy shit, indeed.

Dude.

Holy shit.
