DOJ helped bogus “student group” target George Zimmerman and the Sanford police chief
The Badger ^ | July 16, 2013 | Badger Pundit

Posted on 07/22/2013 3:01:13 PM PDT by Uncle Chip

Here’s a video documenting how the U.S. Dept. of Justice helped the Dream Defenders — a bogus “student group” run by paid activists with links to ACORN and Occupy — target George Zimmerman and the Sanford police chief in April, 2012. It includes excerpts from an 82-minute audio recording of an April 19, 2012, meeting headed up by the DOJ official.................

Highlights:

1. The DOJ official called Dream Defenders a “student group” and referenced the “students” talking at the meeting. (5:45 to 6:10) Yet none of the three members of Dream Defenders who were at the event is a student. Gabriel M. Pendas graduated from FSU in 2005. Vanessa Jennifer Baden graduated from FSU in 2007. Nelini Stamp never attended college. (10:20 to 11:00)

2. Far from being a “student group,” the organization headed up by Pendas and two other non-students (including Stamp) is “Dream Defenders, Inc.,” a Florida corporation. (6:50 to 7:00; incorporation details here).

3. Given the background of the three people who appeared on its behalf, there is reason to believe that Dream Defenders is an “astroturf” front group funded by the lawyers for Trayvon Martin’s family and/or ultra-left-wing big money sources. All three have long worked as paid political agitators.

Stamp currently works for an ACORN front group (the Working Families Party) and was a leader of the nationwide Occupy movement. During the April, 2012, Dream Defenders march she said that the protest was “bigger than Trayvon” because “we can’t take this anymore” — “the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting poorer.” (9:55 to 11:30)

Pendas has spent the last decade, starting in college, working as a paid community organizer. (6:40 to 6:50; 9:40 to 9:55).

Baden began working as an organizer (with Pendas) in college (8:50 to 9:00) and has held at least three organizing jobs. As first reported yesterday on Breitbart.com by Lee Stranahan, for at least two years (2005-06) Baden worked as “Head of Activism“ at Parks & Crump, the law firm currently representing Trayvon Martin’s family (as Stranahan details, she focused her paid activism work on a racially charged case involving the death of another African-American teenager, which provided the “playbook” for the Trayvon Martin case, and at one point she apparently helped lead a mob that blocked rush-hour traffic in Florida’s capitol).

4. Even the name of this so-called “student group” is bogus — a ripoff of an animated children’s TV series which premiered in 2011. The original is much more entertaining than the ripoff launched a year later. (18:00 to 19:00)

BONUS (added 7/17): It turns out that in a 2012 interview available on YouTube, Baden admitted that the Trayvon Martin protest was an “astroturf” operation growing out of her work with the Parks & Crump law firm. More on that here.

Holder should be held responsible and forced to resign. But Republicans are looking the other way — yet again. Holder has made fools of them, but that’s not really hard to do to that spineless lot.

We need an Egyptian style protests with a couple million people on the DC mall. Its all about numbers. We have them, but the question is how to motivate them. Most people just aren’t that concerned about loss of freedom. By the time they are, it will be too late.

Sowell found this quote - you’ll like:

“Many respectable writers agree that if a man reasonably believes that he is in immediate danger of death or grievous bodily harm from his assailant he may stand his ground and that if he kills him he has not exceeded the bounds of lawful self-defense. That has been the decision of this court.” (Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Brown v. United States, 1921)

I believe that is called misappropriation of funds, and is against the law. I am sure criminal proceedings are sure to follow.

I’m sorry but while I’m disappointed in the republicans on not pushing very hard but this is a complete breakdown of the entire structure of the DOJ and while the Democrats control the Senate nothing will get through Congress. This along with the information released today about unauthorized access to IRS information by democrat operatives with the DOJ doing nothing, proves the entire DNC is a criminal organization.

We are sliding down a slippery slope called Nazism.

They may change the name , but the goal is the same.

Zimmerman has changed his name to Ben Gazi so Whitehouse will leave him alone.

Of course, Obama has “used” this “crisis” to stoke up racial tensions to the exploding point. I suppose it’s as simple as DISTRACTION from all the outrageous crap he keeps pulling. - So, focus. Our problem is Barack Hussein and his cohorts in this regime. Peace, and focus; don’t let him manipulate you.

We spoke with Adner Marcelin, founder of the Justice for Trayvon Martin Facebook Group, and one of the students involved in the rally. The protest was arranged by The Justice For Trayvon Martin Coalition, which is affiliated with the Student Coalition for Justice. These groups started with students from Florida State University, Tallahassee Community College, and Florida A&M University, then expanded to other people in the country and around the world.

Mr. Marcelin heads the Student Coalition for Justice that is headquartered in Tallahassee. It includes a network of at least 7,000 students within the U.S. and parts of Canada.
