LIE 1.  FAKE TRAYVON MARTIN PIC –  Twitchy, a new website run by prominent conservative blogger Michelle Malkin, promoted a photo — purportedly from Martin’s Facebook page — that shows Martin in saggy pants and flipping the bird. The photo, which spread quickly on conservative websites and Twitter, is intended to paint Martin as a thug. As Twitchy later acknowledged, it is not a photo of Trayvon Martin. (Examiner)

    Picture this– Trayvon Martin up in heaven praising the Lord. I wonder if he’s going by his twitter name up there, No_Limit_Nigra?

    Before the shooting was even a twinkle in the eye of MSNBC, an eyewitness gave a detailed account to the local media, indicating that it was Martin who was on top of Zimmerman, pummeling him, as Zimmerman screamed “Help!”

    Over St. Patrick’s Day weekend, the month after Martin was killed, gangs in Chicago shot 10 people dead, including a 6-year-old girl, Aliyah Shell, who was sitting with her mother on their front porch. 
    One imagines MSNBC hosts heaving a sign of relief that little Aliyah was not shot by a white man, and was thus spared the horror of being a victim of racism.

      so the killers came up with a lame self-defense excuse and are still walking free? The cops are documented as displaying misconduct in this case? Black people all around the world are defending the accused killers and smearing the victim?

        Blacks ALWAYS defend accused killers — if the killers are black.  Snitches get stitches.

    Lie 1: Was a mistake. The publisher admitted it. The mistake happend because this picture fitted so well to the other pictures of Trayvon flipping the bird without shirt, posing with money, showing his gold teeth…
    Lie 2: Where is the LIE? Trayvon was suspended for this baggy. That’s called TRUTH! The LIE was, that he was suspended for tardiness. You forgot to mention the jewelry.
    Lie 3: That’s an opinion. That’s freedom of speech. Trayvon behaved like a wannabe gangsta. See “Lie 1″. Propably he was a low level criminal see “Lie 2″.
    Lie 4: Well, see “Lie 2″. See the requests for “plant” by his friend. See the pictures of blunts posted as memorial by his friends. Btw. I like to smoke “plant”, too. But, sayin there is no evidense is false.
    Lie 5: There are Twitter messages which imply the assault. Don’t know if it is true. His school records are sealed.
    Lie 6: See “Lie 3″, an opinion, freedom of speech. If the man said that, well, then he said that.

    The biggest lie in this case was portraying Trayvon as 12 year old child, when he was a young man.

    thats because trayvon martin was a juvenile and not an adult he was too young to go to jail to actually have a record of violence.

  • No
