Marketing Trayvon Martin

Posted March 29th, 2012 by Iron Mike

Because one bloody teenage corpse is not enough!

As of today the only sure facts are that neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman met Trayvon Martin – a stranger in his neighborhood, on the night of Feb 26th in Sanford, Florida.

Moments later Zimmerman shot Trayvon, killing him. Today Zimmerman is in hiding with the ‘Press’ and the New Black Panthers hot on his trail.

Trayvon’s mother Sybrina Fulton has trademarked her dead son’s name and image. Can you say ‘book deal’ and ‘movie deal’?

Racist killing? Overzealous vigilante? Self-defense? Series of judgment errors by both?

No matter what ‘truths’ are discovered by state prosecutor Angela Corey or the FBI, – they will be buried by the Media and drowned out by the noise of the mobs, – then reshaped by the movie.

The Press was the first culprit – when they showed the public the sympathetic photo of 11 year old Trayvon with his angelic smile in the now famous red t-shirt.

With circulation sagging, the ‘Press’ needs to pump this story, inflame readers and viewers, and literally generate additional rallies and incidents.

The anti-gun lobby is delighted to have this to push their agenda!

The eventual casting of the movie will be interesting to observe as a study in revisionist history.

The Trayvon who went to meet his Maker that night was seventeen, 6’3” x 150 lbs, and advertised himself as a ‘Made Nigga’.  He was on his second suspension from high school.

To the 5’ 9” x 200 lb George Zimmerman, young Trayvon would have presented a menacing demeanor. If in fact Trayvon had swung a punch at him, breaking his nose and decking him,  it would have been frightening, even terrifying.

I still need answers: What parents would let a child so young get such tattoos, and what dentist would crown such a young mouth with such gold caps? Who paid for these things, and how?

Obama quickly injected himself into the story saying ‘that if he had a son he would look like Trayvon’.

This was entirely self-serving on Obama’s part – and did little to quiet passions.

Obama is grasping at straws as his poll numbers slide, perhaps he thought this would re-energize the Black Vote? If so, this was hardly the act of a nation’s chief law enforcement officer.

The Black Congressional Caucus invited Trayvon’s mother to testify, and there was Sharpton and Jackson with them.

Then black movie director Spike Lee decided to toss a few hand grenades – he tweeted the Zimmerman address – perhaps thinking an angry mob would gather outside?

But he tweeted the wrong address, and an elderly couple was forced to flee their home in panic.

The New Black Panthers offered a reward for Zimmerman’s capture ‘Dead or Alive’. Law enforcement seems to have ignored that one.

Quickly came a line of offensive t-shirts.

There were voices of reason, such as former NAACP President C. L. Bryant, and MLKs niece Alvedia King who have spoken out against the race-baiters, but they’ll get scant notice.

All that’s left for this story is for some self-appointed vigilante to shoot George Zimmerman, and call it ‘social justice’, and for Trayvon’s unseen girlfriend to step forward claiming that she’s carrying his child.

To this old soldier this all seems like a step-by-step replay of the 1960s.

I suspect things won’t quiet down until after the November election, and not until a good dozen innocent people have become victims of racial vigilantes.

But the ‘Press’ will have their easy bloody stories to peddle, and the Poverty Pimps are guaranteed more air time.

Obama will have his martyr to crusade for,  having once again let an opportunity to show leadership elude him.

Best of all, with all this noise going on, the ‘Press’ doesn’t have to report about unemployment, welfare fraud, Fast & Furious, Obama’s fake birth certificate, or the illegal actions of Obama’s Czars.

I’m betting Spike Lee will still get to make the Trayvon Martin movie – retelling the story his way! Probably with a government stimulus subsidy!

    I think the ‘Skittles’ people should be included in any marketing deal. It’s outragious to exclude them from any movie or book deal.

    Latest breaking news – that well know big mouthed Hollywood liberal, Roseann Barr has tweeted the address of Zimmerman’s parents. How thoughtfully? Why don’t we tweet her address? Who would care?

    Yup, the Inquirer has the story as I go through the cashier at Market Basket about this American Tragedy with the baby face of Treyvon, the thief suspended from school, the tattooed no limit nigga.
