A self-proclaimed Liberal poster here on this forum was apparently scammed by another Liberal. The poster here posted the following:
Snippet from the accompanying article:
"Supporters of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman came face-to-face Sunday during a march through a wealthy neighborhood in Houston.
AND...the poster adds:
Anyone who tries to deny that this case has elements of racism in it, or that there's no need for a national discussion on race relations, clearly hasn't been paying attention.
But now we learn, "the rest of the story"....
The Houston Chronicle identified the demonstrator as “Renee Vaughan.” The woman was reportedly yelling “ugly” phrases like, “We’re racist. We’re Proud. We’re better because we’re white,” at the pro-Trayvon Martin crowd at the rally over the weekend, according to the Chronicle.
Thankfully, conservative news media did the research the mainstream media neglected to do.
Gateway Pundit found a “Renee Vaughn” from Austin who worked for the far-left environmental group, the Texas Campaign for the Environment. The website also uploaded a number of photos to compare to the woman photographed at the rally in Houston.
One of the photos seems to show the far-left activist identified as Renee Vaughan wearing the same glasses as the woman seen holding the racist sign.
It was later revealed that Breitbart News’ Brandon Darby actually interviewed the woman at the rally in Houston. She told him that her sign was “sarcastic” More importantly, she revealed that she was certainly not a racist “Zimmerman supporter.”
“This sign means that there are people here who are racist and apparently think that’s OK. I’m not one of them. I’m being sarcastic,” she said.
(for the video of her actually making these comments, go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=uEjAza-Z8Y4 )
Darby puts the blame for the mix-up on the media, not Vaughan, who was “quite honest and open about her intentions and what her sign meant.”
“She also located herself quite clearly on the Trayvon Martin/New Black Panther Party-supporting side of the demonstration,” Darby writes.
Obviously, the self-proclaimed Liberal poster was "fooled" by another very Liberal woman....and the liberal reporting on the story by MANY media outlets. So maybe we should ask the forum poster here, who REALLY "hasn't been paying attention"?
