90% White Hudson Valley Elects “Progressive” That Organized Mass Copyright Infringement Against MLK Estate

Whether you are shouting “tax the rich” into a megaphone or urging mass copyright infringement against he MLK estate it’s still important to wear your pearls!  

“Progressive” Zephyr Teachout the democratic primary victor in NY-19 Congressional district is director of an organization that urged and continues to urge mass copyright infringement directed at the MLK estate.  Only in a 90% white district in upstate NY could someone like this be considered a “progressive.”

We have been covering this story here at the Trichordist for over a month.   We have tweeted her links.  We have emailed the Zephyr Teachout campaign.   Other organizations including the local American Federation of Musicians have tried to get her to respond on this and other copyright issues.  No response.

As of 11:04 pm  June 28th the webpage urging mass copyright infringement is still live.  We can only conclude that Teachout has “dug in” and she sees nothing wrong with this.  Really?  That’s where she’s gonna take a stand?   Is that what it means to be a progressive now days?  No thanks.

Zephyr TeachOut is not who she claims to be.  Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Read our comprehensive coverage of her long and sordid history with astroturf groups,SuperPACs  and self-serving copyright infringement here:
