NAACP admits: Trayvon's past 'shaky'
WND ^ | 07/15/13 | Colin Flaherty

Posted on 07/16/2013 7:41:49 AM PDT by Anila

The first mistake the president of the NAACP in Norfolk, Va., made was saying that Trayvon Martin had a “shaky” past.

Then Tristan Breaux admonished his membership to react “logically, not racially” to the verdict.

This happened just as the lawyers prepared their closing arguments in the trial of George Zimmerman for the killing of Trayvon. Zimmerman was acquitted over the weekend.

But the fury in response to the statements from Breaux started coming from Norfolk and around the country right away, and really hasn’t stopped.

WAVY-TV news tracked down a local city councilman:

“To the majority of the African-American community, I would find it offensive,” said Norfolk City Councilman Paul Riddick.

The station reported: “Tristan Breaux, 25, was sworn in as president of the Norfolk NAACP in January. He is the youngest president in the branch’s history, but members of the organization are calling for him to step down.

Barely 17, drug user and almost certainly with some serious burglary experience in his resume leads me to believe that “shaky background” fits him perfectly.

I’m betting credits to navy beans that if prints were taken in any of those then-recent burglary locations Zimmerman was pointing to, Trayvon’s fingerprints will show up.

“To the majority of the African-American community, I would find it offensive,” said Norfolk City Councilman Paul Riddick.

He finds it offensive to be asked to think "logically, not racially" because thinking logically goes against everything he's been taught since birth. NAACP-types know no other way of thinking except "racially."

The first mistake the president of the NAACP in Norfolk, Va., made was saying that Trayvon Martin had a “shaky” past.

He did.

Then Tristan Breaux admonished his membership to react “logically, not racially” to the verdict.

No, Mr. Breaux, they should react Racially to the verdict - like those nice protesters in Oakland, CA are doing!

the fury in response to the statements from Breaux started coming from Norfolk and around the country right away, and really hasn’t stopped.

and lets hear from a city counsil member on what Mr. Breaux said...

“To the majority of the African-American community, I would find it offensive,” said Norfolk City Councilman Paul Riddick.

Oh, yes Trevon Martin was minding his own business when George Zimmerman, A RACIST, wanted 5to murder him because he was black.

“Tristan Breaux, 25, was sworn in as president of the Norfolk NAACP in January. He is the youngest president in the branch’s history, but members of the organization are calling for him to step down.

They want him to step down because he is not LIBERAL ENOUGH!!

“members of the organization are calling for him to step down.”

He didn’t follow the narrative and is, therefore, a danger to the cause. They have no further use for him.

From the article:

Despite the efforts of prosecutors and activists to keep a lid on the troubled criminal past of Trayvon, his involvement with drugs and such is becoming increasingly well known. Twitter, Facebook, and toxicology tests have established Trayvon’s long and enthusiastic acquaintance with marijuana and codeine. Says Jack Cashill over at American Thinker: Trayvon, in fact, had become a devotee of the druggy concoction known as “Lean,” also known in southern hip-hop culture as “Sizzurp” and “Purple Drank.” Lean consists of three basic ingredients – codeine, a soft drink, and candy. If his Facebook postings are to be believed, Trayvon had been using Lean since at least June 2011. On June 27, 2011, Trayvon asks a friend online, “unow a connect for codien?” He tells the friend that “robitussin nd soda” could make “some fire a** lean.” He says, “I had it before” and that he wants “to make some more.” On the night of February 26, if there was some Robitussin at home, Trayvon had just bought some mixings for one “fire a** lean” cocktail. Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2013/07/naacp-spokesman-trayvons-past-shaky/#iy8i1EcD9tMxFiVg.99

This strikes me as glaring evidence of serious abuse of office by the prosecutors. It strikes me as absolute evidence that Corey, Rionda, Guy, and the after-trial news conferences ...in which Corey has called Zimmerman a murderer and Rionda has reiterated his theory of wanna-be-cop attacking innocent teen...absolute evidence that they know now and knew all along, due to the discovery they withheld, that their entire prosecution was false, and that they unjustly persecuted George Zimmerman who told the truth about Trayvon Martin.

These lawyers should be disbarred and tried. The media is worse than yellow journalism, it blatantly lies.

In what a terrible state is our nation!

Shaky and shady. Something important, but not being mentioned: Trayvon liked to ‘go to the shoulders.’ He was a violent thug, a product of gang thug culture.
That’s the real reason he’s dead. Tristan—stop making sense!

Somehow and sadly, it makes perfect sense in the new Obama/Holder world that as the President of the NAACP works to achieve the ‘advancement’ of colored people, his membership would admonish him for doing so.

Probably not. Saint Trayvon had been living Miami until shortly before his demise. As far as I can tell, the Sanford burglaries had occurred before his arrival.

Think of all the evidence of his dark side that never made it before this jury — and yet without it they still found Zimmerman Not Guilty.

And the lawyers and the family and the media act as if because none of this stuff about Martin was presented in court in front of the jury, that it never happened and his memory is preserved??? Who are they kidding???

It’s the 600 pound gorilla in the room — we know and they know but we’re supposed to act stupid.

The martin family carried by the media, is a carefully "crafted package" established by "Team Crump".
It includes several specialist attorneys, Crump , a publicist ,and Jasmine Rand ,a "social engineering attorney " and others.
These folks manufactured the domestic picture that you see portrayed on television, and in the courtroom ,
as well as portrayed by the politicians and the professional incensed " RACE BAITERS".
What you have seen has been craftly coordinated and choreographed
The entire Martin family has been sanitized ,homogenized , pasteurized , and then bottled to the media
There are several sources that can verify that ; one particular source is :

Interesting theory. Jeantel's rambling interview last night included:

"What he want to burglary for? He was supposably had left that night...that day anyway. He don't know nobody there anyway. He don't even know his brother...his step-brother. His father...his father's girlfriend."

The NAACP wants to put Trayvon on the same pedestal with Martin Luther King as some kind of symbol of the Civil Rights movement.

Trayvon Martin was at best a lost soul. He was not the victim of George Zimmerman. He was the victim of a culture that tolerates and encourages education failure and criminal activity and discourages a work ethic and moral leadership.

His journey from the innocent 12 year old in the football uniform that was used to portray Martin as an innocent “Child” and the pictures on his phone with the gold teeth giving the world the finger all the way to the night he walked down to the store to by two of the principle ingredients in a drug concoction known in his world as “Purple Drank” is a tragedy that should be laid at the feet of those so called “Black Leaders” who encourage these youths to strike out at the world and blame all their troubles on the idea that they only fail because white people don’t like the color of their skin.

When you add together the mixture of race baiting rabble rousers and cowardly white Republicans who shudder at the thought of blatant racists like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson suggesting that they are racists because they won’t prosecute an hispanic man with a Jewish name for Murder when the likes of a wanna-be gang member like Trayvon breaks his nose and tries to beat his brains out on a concrete sidewalk, you have a society that is wholly and totally dysfunctional.

If anyone deserves blame for Trayvon Martin’s fate (other than himself) it is the NAACP, which has long ago lost it’s own soul. It was started on the idea that all people should be judged on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin, but now stands for the proposition that a black person should be excused for their character defects because of the color of their skin and that white people are to blame for all their problems.

The liberal media plays the race card for the NAACP and Republican politicians cower in fear that the race card will somehow be dropped on their desk.

Rick Scott is a coward. He pulled out all the stops to try to get an INNOCENT man convicted of MURDER. He must have known there was no case against Zimmerman as Angela Corey and Bernie De La Rondia also knew. They needed a conviction to placate the black race baiters and to boost their own racial credentials.

This whole thing would have blown over more than a year ago if the wheels of justice had just been allowed to run their normal course. A Grand Jury would have refused to indict Zimmerman and the race baiters would have gone on a hunt for another white racist to pin all their failures on.

I believe that Rick Scott, Pam Bondi, Angela Corey and Bernie De La Ronda should all receive the punishment that they attempted to get the jury to give to George Zimmerman. They literally wanted to take George Zimmerman’s life away because they were too cowardly to stand up to a bunch of racial agitators who had nothing but emotion and no facts to back up their allegations that George Zimmerman stalked the “Innocent Child” Trayvon Martin and killed him BECAUSE he was black.

Send these clowns to prison for the next 30 years. They deserve it. They have effectively killed George Zimmerman for their own political gain. I can’t think of a worse crime. George Zimmerman’s life is over. He will have to change his name and appearance and probably find another country to live in because Republicans like Scott, Corey, Bondi and De La Riondi are all a bunch of gutless cowards with political aspirations that are more important to them than the lives of innocent men like George Zimmerman.

Not just his ‘past’.

That guy gladly embraced a culture that is violent, anti establishment, anti authority, etc.

He made all the worst possible choices in his short life.

And I think he was one of those guys who was constantly spoiling for a confrontation with the establishment and with authority in what ever form or place he found it.

There is a whole culture like that, out there. No rational adult would associate with that element or want THEIR kid associating with THAT element... yet here they all are, bemoaning the inevitable end to just where all those kinds of stupid, immature and irresponsible life choices will take you!
