Dan Riehl and Stormfront in Perfect Sync
DERPbreitbart.com blogger Dan Riehl seems to be having uncontrollable hate spasms today, tossing off racist posts one after another. Now he’s trumpeting a photo he found at Facebook (hat tip: “a reader”) under the name “Trayvon Martin,” seemingly unable or unwilling to realize that it’s not the same person as the 17-year old murdered in Florida: Riehl World View: Update: Is This the Same Trayvon Martin?
I came across this Facebook account in the name of Trayvon Martin. I do not know if it is the same Martin who was recently killed in Florida. The banner photo matches, which proves nothing fwiw.
Update: It doesn’t appear to be the same Trayvon Martin. But I’m still not sure. It’s still linked. h/t a reader.
Also, people are whacked. We asked questions all the time when I covered crime out here. People need to get over it. I’ve seen several pics alleged to be Trayvon Martin circulating that didn’t look worth asking about. Community sourcing works. It’s what blogs did well back when they started. If I had something earth shattering, I’d look to publish it via a Breitbart site, if it were solid.
Here’s the photo to which he’s linking, and this kid is very obviously not the same Trayvon. But I guess if you’re a racist wingnut, they all look alike.
Interestingly enough, Riehl wasn’t the first to discover this Facebook page. That honor goes to the neo-Nazis and white supremacists at Stormfront. (The link is to a Google search page. h/t: Gus.)
Dan Riehl and Stormfront, in perfect sync.
Riehl responds to this post, and I hope someone can translate it because he’s now totally incoherent:
