The Last Refuge bloggers continue to break interesting news about the motley crew of paid agitators who fancy themselves the intellectual heirs of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (their leader explicitly claims that mantle here), and are protesting the Trayvon Martin verdict, calling themselves the “Dream Defenders” — recruiting gullible college students to serve as their shock troops.
A post this morning relates the latest on the occupation of the Florida Governor’s office by the “Dream Defenders,” from an inside source, an employee assigned to the Governor’s office (see “Update” in red at the bottom of this post).
It seems the membership rule for “Dream Defenders” is: “No dreamboats need apply.” A taste:
The protesters at no point have done what they claim to be. They have not be respectful nor polite with the public. They have not in anyway done what the generation before them did during the Civil Rights era. They claim to be doing a “Sit In” protest yet they take shifts, sit on their butts near power sockets surfing the internet on the public wifi, they don’t express their views in any logical means and they only show “force” when the media is at hand.

The protesters themselves are a shabby bunch. They are lazy and ill mannered. Their numbers are around 15 to 20 and they “work” in shifts. The media for the most part will not air the truth. They will only do tight shots of them to make it appear that their numbers are larger then they are.
As an illustration of the non-dreamboat brigade currently lazing about the Governor’s office, one need look no further than the President (and one of three directors, all non-students) of Dream Defenders, Inc., Gabriel M. Pendas, who is quite aptly described by The Last Refuge as “a Fidel Castro looking wannabe Marxist“:
Contrast this lazy, ill-mannered, shabby bunch of paid activists who claim to be marching in support of Dr. King’s dream with the real Dream defenders of the 1960s, who actually did march with Dr. King. No one could accuse the real Dream defenders of being shabby, or disrespectful, or impolite:
Hey, “Dream Defenders”: The 1960s are calling and they want their rhetoric back!
