Skip to comments.“Kill George Zimmerman!”

Trayvon Martins shooter George Zimmerman has not yet been charged with a crime, but with the aid of a sensationalist media and racial agitators like Al Sharpton, he has already been tried and found guilty in the court of public opinion. Now, the hate-filled public lynch mob wants him dead, too.
The Internet now teems with death threats against Zimmerman, many of them explicit. A Twitter account called KillZimmerman has been active for nearly a week. The page shows a mug shot of Zimmerman, a bulls-eye around his head, and reads: This Page Is 4 Da Ppl Who Believe Zimmerman Should Be Shot Dead In The Street.
The site features messages like the following:
Every1 is going to die one day sum ppl deserve to die today.
Calls for Zimmermans murder also appeared on other twitter sites. One, since taken down, read:
Ima get a group of niggas to KILL George Zimmerman ( the fat ass racist ass white man who killed Trayvon Martin ) ! He deserves to DIE !!!! Couldnt Care Less (@Simply_Reiona) March 24, 2012″
Black militant groups have also tried to incite Zimmermans murder. The New Black Panther Party made news for offering a $10,000 bounty for Zimmermans death and has circulated a Wanted: Dead Or Alive poster to inspire someone to commit the act. The message is apparently intended in earnest. Mikhail Muhummud, the groups self-identified leader, has warned, God dammit, he should be fearful for his life. Yet another group, calling itself the New Black Liberation Militia, has announced that it will send its members to Orlando next week to attempt a citizens arrest of Zimmerman. A t-shirt has been marketed emblazoned with Zimmermans mugshot and the word Pussy Ass Cracker. Not surprisingly, in light of such threats, Zimmerman and his family have gone into hiding.
Even those with no connection to Zimmerman have become targets of the revenge mob. After director Spike Lee retweeted the home address of an elderly couple in Zimmermans home town of Sanford, Florida, apparently confusing their son William George Zimmerman with George Zimmerman, the couple was barraged with hate mail and harassed by the media, eventually having to flee their home to a hotel for safety. Although Lee has since apologized, the violent immediacy with which the couple became the victim of the Tayvon revenge seekers is revealing of the ferocity of the persecution.
Drowned out by the bloodlust is the due process to which Zimmerman is still entitled. While his self-appointed executioners dont seem to care, he hasnt been charged with anything yet. That may or may not change, depending on the facts of the case, but until these become known there is no justice in passing judgement on Zimmermans guilt, let alone in demanding his death. The fact that 70 percent of Americans now believe that Zimmerman should be arrested is a troubling commentary on the extent to which passions have been able to trump evidence.
Not the least of the tragedies of the Trayvon Martin shooting is that it has engendered exactly the kind of vigilante violence against which it was supposed to provide a cautionary tale, only this time Martins shooter may become the victim. I just hope at one point everyone will go beyond the hate that they have, Zimmermans father recently said of those screaming for his sons murder. At that point maybe justice the legal, not the mob variety can take over.
I thought Mr. Zimmerman was Hispanic.
Because they where.
Some predicted the racial divide would grow deeper with Obama in the white house.
How right they where.
Maybe this is God's way of pre-sorting...
Didn’t we have Rodney King in the 90’s?
Problem is that there are too many people whose significance and livelihood depend on there being racism. They got to find it wherever they look or they are without purpose.
Between the hippies/moonbats/libs this protesting and promoting their class warefare this summer, This White/Latino vs Black simmering race war and the Blacks rioting and burning down their own neighborhoods come this Nov it’s sure is shaping up to be a real interesting Summer/Fall!
Zero must be proud of himself.
I need to buy a gun.......
if there is anything funny about this whole situation.. which I am not sure there is.. but if there is... its the attempt to make a Hispanic dude into a white guy because its more convenient... lol
let the idiot animals keep burning down their own neighborhoods. I never quite understood the logic behind doing that anyway. As for Zimmerman I would think they would throw him into Wit Pro till the attention on him blows over. In all seriousness this guy is going to end up dead if he doesnt get some protection.
They’ve gone way around the bend!
Travon’s Death was Premeditated Murder
Ugh, DU. Won’t go there. They’ve been ‘round the bend for ages and ages.
I wish I could post this to every Freeper. And I may be wrong. But I think this scenario shows we are the gutless ones.
We know we don’t control the minorities, the media, even our own party.
Yet we say, “Tbe next election we’ll fix this.”
Seriously, is this how we go down?
I read a news media report that identified him as a "white hispanic." It was a main stream media outlet. What is a white hispanic?
I am of the opinion that, if the media circus over Trayvon isn't ended quickly with a MAJOR download of truth and facts, we may well see race riots the likes of which we haven't seen since the '60s.
If that occurs, I lay the blame for every person who may be killed or injured and ALL of the destruction of public AND private property at the feet of the media who created this situation by FAILING to tell the truth!!!
Welcome to the club, Two. I've been saying the same things since BEFORE the '08 election.
How are these people some of our elected officials?
Violent thug gets shot and killed for trying to jump someone that defends himself. Senators wear hoodies to capitol hill and look like elected thugs. Just look at this picture, this is who we have representing us. What a joke.
How would you have it, “go down”. Also, couldn’t the person that made this account be prosecuted for vigilantism/hate crime? “Kill Zimmerman” “Fat White Racist”, HATE CRIME. Clear as day.
That's easy. An hispanic the liberals want to lynch.
"We gots us a white hispanic heayah. Git a rope!"
Most of those in the "blame Zimmerman" camp (and it is, I think, the vast majority of the public, thanks to a dishonest media) are fully invested in the narrative. No matter what facts emerge, no matter how it really happened, they are beyond reasoning with on the subject.
Open minded and tolerant? That's the last thing you'll see from this crowd.
Fully agree that Congress is a joke. Bobby Rush, the hoodie actor, he's in the House, not the Senate.
