What if George Zimmerman had a more hispanic sounding name?

Posted on 03/25/2012 6:25:03 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing

How much you want to bet that if "George Zimmerman" were instead "Pedro Zimmerman", or even how about "Pedro Hernandez". If he were Juan Gonzales, or Joze Bustamonte, Carlos Rodriguez, or Eduardo Garcia.......

There's no way the media could do the race baiting that they're getting away with now.

Everybody knows only white people can be racist. *SARCASM*


TOPICS: Chit/Chat
KEYWORDS: georgezimmerman; mediabias; racebaiting; racecard; trayvon; trayvonmartin; zimmerman
How about Ricardo Perez? Fernando Ruiz.........

I hate this media.

No one has linked to any hispanic thoughts on this contrived pos story.

“There’s no way the media could do the race baiting that they’re getting away with now.”

Remember the black-on-white here in Baltimore last year?

That made a good deal of news (but no protests/riots).

Probably mainly because the “white” was a transexual/homo. If she was a regular boring white person, only us locals might’ve heard something on the nightly news that night only.

Oh, the webs liberals weave.

His first name might be Jorge. My brother in law has an employee who is Hispanic and his name is Jorge but he tells people to call him George(That it’s easier for people to pronounce)

Dhahrun Ravi probably should have had his name changed to Giuseppe Multisanti the second the crowd in North Jersey decided to peg him for the Tyler Clementi deal.

There is lots of Zimmermans in my Hispanic home country of Paraguay. At least since the end of WWII.

In Spanish, “George Zimmerman” is “Jorge Carpintero.”

Then La Raza wouldn’t have had this statement:
“The death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed African American teenager who was fatally shot by a neighborhood watch member in a gated community outside Orlando, FL, remains an unresolved and disturbing incident. The lack of action from the police—despite mounting evidence that the findings of their initial and unconscionably cursory investigation are incorrect—has led to national outrage, online petitions with thousands of signatures, national mobilizations, and a Department of Justice investigation...”

They’d have probably had to instead show some concern about an Hispanic being railroaded ...

They said his fathers name is Robert Zimmerman (no kidding)

"My son what have you done?"

Bob Dylan, ( /ˈdɪlən/) born Robert Allen Zimmerman on May 24, 1941, is an American singer-songwriter and musician. He has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for five decades.[1][2] Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s when he was an informal chronicler and a seemingly reluctant figurehead of social unrest. A number of Dylan's early songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'", became anthems for the US civil rights[3] and anti-war[4] movements. Leaving his initial base in the culture of folk music behind, Dylan's six-minute single "Like a Rolling Stone" has been described as radically altering the parameters of popular music in 1965.[5] However, his recordings employing electric instruments attracted denunciation and criticism from others in the folk movement

Bob Zimmerman is not Jewish, and Bob Dylan is not Irish. An upside down world.

The reports so far mean absolutely nothing because the media has long forgotten the need for facts and investigation. This incident will be sensationalized and not much will be based on reality until the trial.

Does anyone remember the murders of Channon Gail Christian and Hugh Christopher Newsom Jr. in Knoxville Tennessee?

...I didn't think so

I’m thinking the simple solution is the old tried-and-true trial by combat.
We locate George/Jorge/Whorehay and the Martin family designates a warrior,
put `em both in Thunderdome: `Two Men Enter, One Man Leaves.’

On the same slate, “Two-Fisted” George Will vs. Calypso Louie;
Al “The Maniac” Sharpton vs. “Rowdy” Rush Limbaugh; Barry “AKA” Obama vs “Insanity” Santorum; Ann “Slats” Coulter vs. “Mo-Mo” Dowd; “Bilious” Bill Maher vs. A Rabid Chimpanzee; ... we could do this all night. Pay per view, yeah. Heh.

CBS news tonight admitted that a witness said Zimmerman was getting a beat down from the kid. So what we have here is a teachable moment about finding out whether people are packing before attacking.

I was told the media "working orders" were to down play the racial element of the Knoxville murders because of the potential sensationalism. I did a search and found the wikipedia entry omits pictures of the people who raped, tortured and murdered the young white couple

So I feel compelled to include them here...

and add that this was not considered a hate crime.

The thing that keeps getting me is that a lot of news outlets refer to Zimmerman as a ‘white hispanic’. Huh? I’ve filled out a ton of forms in my time and last time I checked there wasn’t an option for ‘white hispanic’ under ethnicity. It’s either ‘white/Caucasian’ or ‘hispanic’. Problem is that calling Zimmerman ‘hispanic’ doesn’t fit the narrative the MSM is pushing..after all, this incident was really a ‘white kills black’ crime, right, right? wink, wink.

I've been married to my Wife for 27 years. Her Mother is from Mexico and her Father is from Oklahoma. In all those years, I have never heard the expression “White Hispanic”.

Apparently the Media is competing with the Obama Administration for the title of “Most Transparent”.

I would not shed a tear if these Liberal “Journalists” were hung in the Public Square for Treason, but then again, that is probably a bit harsh. They just want Zimmerman hanging from a tree to even the score for what the KKK Democrats did way back when.

An elderly white couple was robbed and tortured, and the wife raped and beaten to death by a feral black gang just last week in Oklahoma.
What if they had been black and the perps white?

While the Zimmerman/Martin ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by a gang of feral blacks in Oklahoma just last week?

The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.

The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.
(She was most likely gang raped numerous times...but we will never know for sure)

Both the husband and wife were weak, having just gotten over the flu.

.

There’s a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Where is the 24/7 MSM coverage?

Where is the outrage?

May I ask, were they Jewish? I'm beginning to think that if the guy's last name were Smith or Jones, there wouldn't be near the outrage. Something hasn't sat right with me on this, and I am of the opinion that there is a little antisemitism thrown in here for good measure.
As they say, the truth will out, and I think many people will be brought up short.
