Skip to comments.Interesting text I got today from a black teacher

I answered a beep indicating a text message had come in on my cell phone today. To my great surprise and disgust, a picture of the 12 y.o. Trayvon popped up, with the following text underneath (spelling is just the way it was on the cell phone text message):
"In the wake of the senseless killing of Trayvon Martin...'The company known as Koch', which manufactures paper products is sponsoring and paying for Zimmerman's legal fees because they feel he had legal right to bare arms and shoot Trayvon we are asking that people everywhere ban together and pass this information on and not purchase any of the following items because your money will be paying for Zimmerman's lawyers and legal fees. Please do not purchase any of the following items: Angel soft toilet paper, Brawny paper towels, Dixie plates, bowls, napkins and cups, Mardi gras napkins and paper towels, Quilted northern toilet paper, Soft and gentle toil paper, Sparkle napkins and paper towels, Vanity Fair napkins and paper towels. Please forward this Very Important information to All your Family and Friends. Please Let's Help Get "Justice for Trayvon Martin" Thank you!!!
I was beyond angry and utterly disgusted. The sender is a very nice black woman, fellow teacher, and I could not wrap my mind around her falling in with these Trayvon crappeople. I texted her back that Zimmerman didn't flee the country, he submitted himself to the justice system of this country and there was insufficient evidence for the jurors to him guilty of anything. And that we can't complain if a verdict is not what WE think it should be. She then called me to discuss my text reply to her message. She mentioned the 911 tape as proof. I told her straight up that the 911 call tape had been altered by the media to make Zimmerman look more guilty. No, she didn't know that. She didn't take into account the inflammatory picture of dear Trayvon as a 12 y.o. vs. the age he was at death. She didn't seem aware of the 3 suspensions at school, the burglary tools found in his locker at school, or any of the other evidence which may have been suppressed. Yet she feels confident enough to pass along this outrageous crap on my phone. However, the conversation remained amicable and she even rang off with an "I love you", as did I.
This is really scary, if nice people like this lady are so easily recruited to carry the water for the agitators.
Where in the world did she come up with the Koch angle. I never heard that one and almost sure it’s a lie.
You increased her level of information and that is a good thing. The real lesson here is how much influence the vile and despicable MSM has on ordinary people, who are not political junkies like us.
The world is full of stupid people and, sadly, many of them are teaching our children.
* for list of products to buy
I thought at least one of GZ’s lawyers worked pro bono.
Kochs are blamed for everything.
We have a local incorporated group fighting Wind Farms around here that gets 100% of its funding from local citizens. Many of these people are hardcore Democrats.
yet, it is constantly being assaulted by the Windies and the leaseholders and accused of being funded by the Koch Brothers
Koch Facts @kochfacts
There is no truth to the rumor that Koch is funding the defense of George Zimmerman. #tlot #tcot #trayvonmartin

It’s a fake. The boycott Koch letter has been circulating for a while. Somebody thought a Zimmermann tie-in would attract more attention, though there’s no truth in it. See Snopes.com for more (if you trust them).
She is ignorant in more ways than one.
It’s “bear” arms, not “bare” arms ...
I saw the Koch angle on Twitter. Probably progressives who actually believe the Koch brothers are underwriting the Tea Party and want to punish them. Even Snopes has debunked the Koch-Zimmerman “connection.”
Oh, I am right now embroiled in a FB debate with a fellow teacher who is usually a very fair-minded, mellow, balanced man, and he also knows little about the case, but is very willing to hold forth on “racial profiling” and how Trayvon’s rights were violated, and how he “senses” Zimmerman’s racism... it’s astounding. I mean, this is someone I had thought was more dispassionate and truth-seeking than this. I’m hoping I can get a few facts through his head too.
I did some research just now and found out that SNOPES called this rumor FALSE. I also saw that many many black organizations of every ilk around the web are promulgating this nonsense, which is interesting and rather scary. What, are they just checking their brains and baccalaureate/Masters degrees at the door as they suck this toilet water up without critical review of the facts?
we are asking that people everywhere ban together
I will be stocking up on those paper products this week-end.
now i know which paper products to buy for my preps.
i will add to my list
in out burgers
I guess her texting skills need some work...
I think it’s sad that otherwise decent folks are so easily manipulated. Must be the teachers union.
I was beyond angry and utterly disgusted. The sender is a very nice black woman, fellow teacher...
She is ignorant. I can almost excuse the sheeple for falling in line with what the MS tells them. And for blacks.... They will happily stay on the plantation if the racers at the NAACP tell them to.
But when ANYONE spews forth the lies like this woman did - they go beyond ignorant and into the Twilight Zone of racist hatred.
Tell her off. I’m sure she’d appreciate hearing from a creepy ass cracker.
Because Liberals are idiots.
