Pro-Zimmerman, Pro-Trayvon Martin groups meet in tense standoff in Houston
NY Daily News ^ | 07/23/2013 | PHILIP CAULFIELD

Supporters of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman came face-to-face Sunday during a march through a wealthy neighborhood in Houston.

Some 80 pro-Zimmerman supporters waved signs and shouted slogans at Martin supporters as they passed through the neighborhood of River Oaks, an upscale enclave deemed "Houston's Sanford, Florida" by the organizer of the Trayvon rally, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Separated by cops on horseback and specialized crowd control units, the two sides traded insults and shouted slogans at each another but never clashed physically.

pro-Zimmerman group — “some 80 people”
pro-Trayvon group — “a group of people”

Uh-huh.

Trayvon ain’t got much support, huh?

Quanell X is the local leader of New Black Panther Party — unless he has already been thrown out for (oddly) being too radical.

We know which of the two groups is apt to turn to violence. Justice for Martin? He already got his justice, self inflicted.

Texas Campaign for the Environment has hastily scrubbed her bio from their website, but I found a cached copy:

"Renee Vaughan, Associate Staff Director Austin spent many weeks of her childhood in the Gila National Forest with her family and so has a deep appreciation for the world's places of natural beauty. Her hobby is urban and landscape photography. A graduate of the University of North Texas, she began organizing with TCE in August of 2004. Renee is passionate about empowering people to lead their leaders toward more just social and environmental policies and views the grassroots canvass as a crucial political tool in making real change."

Neither group looks very large.

The protestors were outnumbered by the many locals who came to watch the very entertaining street theater. In many ways, the atmosphere was more like a silly parade than an angry protest. There were lots of intentionally goofy signs and other unrelated wacky posters. A mandolin strummer and ram's horn blower that added to absurdity of the event. It was fitting that the climatic intersection where the opposing protesters merged contains no fewer than three Starbucks! The onlookers comfortably mingled with the protestors and many brought their dogs and even very young kids in strollers. Many of the bemused black onlookers appeared to be there just to watch the fun and not to take sides.

The Houston Police Department handled the event very professionally and should be commended. Houston is known for being a large city that still has good racial relations in spite of malefactors like Mr. X. This lame protest seemed like an event that might have worked elsewhere, but here, it was largely a joke.

So... what are they supporting about Trayvon?

A thug’s right to impose a beatdown without fearing for his life?

I suspect many liberal organizations (rent a thugs) pretend to be conservatives. We need to contract the newspapers that ran the fake pictures and demand a retraction. They’ll do it because if they don’t we can sue them - and they know that...

We need to sue the bitch and the organization she’s a part of... then sue any newspaper that won’t print a retraction.

“Who is Quanell Ten”

He is the muslim radical equivalent of Jesse Jackson. In other words, a professional race pimp, bent on stirring up trouble anywhere he can.

In that video the woman, after dropping “Poochie” with a rifle she pulls from her trunk, then FINISHES PUMPING THE GAS (probably prepaid inside) and then GOES AND TAKES A PICTURE of Poochie tits up on the cement.

Yup, wonder how much she got paid to try to incite a race-riot? Zero’s handlers really want a race war to redirect the nations attention...

Note that the Zimmerman group has hand written signs while the Martin group has printed signs.

Two possible conclusions...

1. Grassroot vs Astroturf

or

2. One group can write and spell, the other?

They need to print a correction. Removing the picture is not enough.
