A newly published Daily Caller report uncovers another Twitter account for the Florida youth shot by a Hispanic man two months ago whose death is now being used as racist propaganda by the likes of Al Sharpton and others. Democrats – including Barack Obama, and their mainstream media counterparts did an all-in rush to judgement, using old photographs of Trayvon Martin in an attempt to depict him as an innocent youth. What then of this photo showing a glowering and tatooed Martin flipping off the camera and declaring someone should be shot?
The Daily Caller story included the following:
The Daily Caller has identified a second Twitter handle that was used by the late Trayvon Martin during the last weeks of 2011. Tweeting in December under the name “T33ZY_TAUGHT_M3,” Martin sent a message that read, “Plzz shoot da #mf dat lied 2 u!”
…A basic Google search for “@T33ZY_TAUGHT_M3″ on Wednesday indicated that corresponds to a defunct Twitter account once used by someone named “Tray.” The same name, entered into the Google Images search engine, generated the photo of Martin flipping off the camera.
Upper-arm tattoos visible in that photo match those depicted in the Trayvon Martin’s MySpace page, which TheDC has also identified. That account includes numerous features, including photos of family members, indicating that it belonged to the slain teen.
Regardless of whether or not Trayvon Martin believed himself to be some version of a “thug” or not, the death of a 17 year old remains a tragedy. Perhaps though even more tragic is the way his death has been purposefully manipulated by the liberal media, Democrats, and Barack Obama as a means to try and sway voters during an election year and convince them this tragedy was an example of racism. Martin’s shooter, George Zimmerman, is a man of Hispanic background. That background was repeatedly ignored by the media – a tactic that continues to this day. The truth of Travyon Martin’s image at the time of his death was also ignored in favor of photos from years prior in a clear attempt to sway public opinion that this 17 year old young man was an innocent – even as these now more recent photos suggest at least the possibility that was not the case. Trayvon Martin had been expelled from school multiple times for drug and theft related offenses. His Twitter accounts indicate a youth quite comfortable in the language of violence, and this most recent photo released by the Daily Caller further suggests a young man at the very least experimenting with a far more thuggish lifestyle than the initial media portrayals would have you believe.
Such deception does a disservice both to Trayvon Martin, most certainly to George Zimmerman, and the entire nation. Voters would do well come November to remember exactly who attempted that deception on them.
