Keeping Hope A Lie One Year Later: The Trayvon Martin story ...

Keeping Hope A Lie – One Year Later: The Trayvon Martin story is on Legacy Media provided Life Support

The million hoodie march is now a couple hundred race-baiting fools… gathering to beat their drums and demand mo’ money under the guise of ‘In-just-us’. Laughable at best…

(AP STORY) Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, were joined by actor Jamie Foxx and a crowd of about 200 people on Tuesday evening in Manhattan’s Union Square Park. They lit candles and held a moment of silence at 7:17 p.m., the time Martin was fatally shot on Feb. 26, 2012.

Now the report from Treeper Admin Ytz4Me: (Updated @1:17 am ET)

NEW YORK CITY - The hints were there. Online articles about the Zimmerman case elicit comments that support Zimmerman’s contention that he acted in self-defense by over a margin of 6 to 1; the Martin family attorney who spearheaded the agitation for the Capias suddenly lawyers up himself and seeks to avoid being “put on the record”; and the ongoing failure of the various iterations of the “Trayvon Martin Foundation aka “Justice for TM” ” to raise any meaningful or significant funds.

The Trayvon Martin “cause” however, continues to live on, with life breathed into its metaphorical corpse by a corrupt legacy media desperate to maintain the fiction that institutional racism is alive and well in Obama’s America. On life support, the manufactured faux rage of the chattering class continues to be splashed across the pages of online editions of print newspapers and monthlies; and on “specials” by the cable news cabal regurgitating the same tired tropes first put forth by Ryan Julison.

Tonight marked the anniversary of the night of that fateful – and fatal – encounter. February 26th, 2012 was the night that changed the lives of the Zimmerman and Martin families forever – the night that Trayvon Martin decided that he would respond with fists and fury, and die from the close range shot of man terrified and bloodied by the brutal assault.

Most people in Sanford, FL seek to move on...... Local newspapers in Sanford reported that “dozens” were expected at a hastily arranged “Memorial Vigil”. It was clear that interest had waned........

Circling the event [in New York] thrice, I put the crowd at 200 – maybe if one is generous, 300 souls at most. I’ve been to Bat Mitzvahs with a larger attendance. The ”oppressive” police presence toted up another 30 – 40 warm bodies, with the assorted media bringing up the rear with between 25 – 30, depending on what you categorize as “media”.

The first thing that struck me was the dearth of angry black men in hoodies. In fact, there seemed to be an overly large representation of fresh faced blonde co-eds holding up professionally produced placards declaring “Revolution or Nothing Less” and “Dignity for All“. Speaking to one of them later, it became obvious that they had been recruited as temp help/sign twirlers, and most had forgotten the basic instructions to ditch their college sweatshirts and wear hoodies. Oh well......

There wasn’t enough money in the trashcans to pay for more show-me-the-money attendees at $9/hr.

Interest even in Sanford is waning as they are dealing with an increase of violent crime.

Of course....the Black Racist national media will not report that. At least there is local coverage

If only Zimmerman’s attorney would grow a spine and a pair

These ongoing Trayvon "commemoration" events are held for two reasons only.....to bring in more sucker money into the parent's wallets and their attorney's pockets by roundabout ways....and, secondly, these contrived "events" are organized, promoted and encouraged by shadowy, racist national leaders working behind the scenes to irrevocably taint any upcoming Zimmerman jury pool.

These manipulators....the parents, their attorney, their racist, ideological sponsors across the fruited plain, along with the corrupt national and local media are slavering for nothing else than to have Zimmerman convicted and spend the next few decades of his life in some steamy, seamy, roach-infested Florida jail.
