(Jason Howerton) Mainstream media outlets recently ran with a photo of a “George Zimmerman supporter” in Houston holding a “We’re Racist & Proud!” sign. As it turns out, she is not a Zimmerman supporter at all — and is likely a far-left activist.
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 new 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.
