Aaron Klein has publicized further evidence that Dream Defenders — the so-called “student group” that supposedly emerged as a spontaneous grassroots reaction to the death of Trayvon Martin — is a bogus “astroturf” front group created and funded by the law firm representing the Martin family, and/or ultra-left-wing ideological allies.
In an article posted early this morning on WND.com, Klein focused on an interview of one of the Dream Defender ringleaders — Vanessa Baden — published on YouTube in December, 2012. In it, Baden talks about her work as “Head Activist” at Parks & Crump, the law firm representing Trayvon Martin’s family. Specifically, she talks about her work organizing “astroturf” campaigns in racially charged cases, most recently in the Trayvon Martin case.
And here is a video with the key excerpts from Baden’s interview, followed by audio from a recent interview of her mentor at the firm, in which he attempts to distance him and his firm from her account of how she headed up the creation of “astroturf” campaigns to aid the firm’s cases.
