Skip to comments.Trayvon and Zimmerman: The Structure and Elements of a Disinformation Campaign
Posted on 05/03/2012 2:01:19 AM PDT by Flotsam_Jetsome
"Trayvon," of course, is Trayvon Martin, the black 17-year-old who was killed two months ago in Florida. "Zimmerman" is George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who shot him. Referring to Martin by his first name and Zimmerman by his last is just one small tactic in the national media campaign to make Martin's death an enduring symbol of white racism.
The Trayvon campaign is accurately described as "disinformation" because deception is a fundamental part of its planning, strategy, and implementation. Leftist disinformation campaigns are common but not widely understood. This article is intended to make them easier to recognize, and to provide a framework for additional research and investigation. Whether or not George Zimmerman was justified in pulling the trigger is outside the scope of this analysis.

What I’d like to know is whether or not Martin had an arrest record. I Googled the phrase “Trayvon Martin’s arrest record” and got three hits. Really? In the whole history of the universe, it has only occurred to three people to ask about his arrest record?
“Timing, as they say, is everything. “
Absolutely. So is location. Not that everyone can move due to a variety of reasons but we moved just for these reasons. We still maintained the resources, such as jobs, as we wanted but we planned very carefully our move.
I've said for a long time that if racism didn't exist it would have to be created. Well, sports fans, the push is on.
Even less, especially when the MSM is only too willing to supply the drama.
It’s comments like that, that makes me wish FR had a “like” button.
Yes, timing is all. And of course, we couldn’t hold normal elections in the middle of a race war.
Very good point about the two 13%s.
I just hope that we’re all out of the line of fire. Time to restudy the CW2 Cube, and especially ponder location.

America faces three sworn enemies:
1. Islamic terrorists.
2. The American left.
3. The Mainstream Media.
And, of these, the latter is by far the most dangerous. Were it not for the Mainstream Media, the other two enemies would've been defeated years ago.
This is excellent disinformation analysis, the best I have seen. Thanks for writing it.
Thanks for the ping!

It truly is an outstanding piece of analysis. It was written by a fellow FReeper.
This should be required reading the first day of high school.
“Let’s get you on air.”
The negro nazi party would have me “Bonhoeffered”.
“I just hope that were all out of the line of fire.”
That’s right, but the best place to be if the feces collides with the rotary air current generator is outside the “L” shaped kill zone manning a belt fed weapon.
“The liberals would truly love to bring back the white racism of the early Twentieth Century.”
Libtrash calling the TEA party racist is merely projection of their bigotry upon their betters.
Lucifer created Islam for diehard theists.
He created the left’s statism (Marxism/communism/socialism/progressivism) for diehard atheists.
That’s why they team up, because they are the bastard brothers of Satan.
God’s word calls the devil the “prince of the power of the air”, so the media is his enabler of evil.
