Poking Fun

The Smoking Gun gets the vapors.

This is a curious thing. Two anonymous fellows engage in offensive behavior–dressing as Trayvon Martin (complete with blackface and gunshot wound) and George Zimmerman. They are neither celebrities nor public officials. Yet here they are, outed and putatively shamed by the diligent right-thinkers at The Smoking Gun. One could say they’re getting the celebrity treatment, of a sort. The Gun even gives us the dirt on one of the guy’s own petty criminal record. At some point, without us noticing, New Media began applying the same intrusive treatment formerly reserved for celebrities to the common man–if the common man transgresses against political correctness.
