Zimmerman Brother: George Supported Obama, Wanted to End 'Club of White Men'
http://www.breitbart.com/ ^ | 02/06/2013 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 02/06/2013 12:21:35 PM PST by BO Stinkss

Media coverage of the George Zimmerman shooting of Trayvon Martin has been skewed for months by wild charges of racism against George. NBC News infamously edited tape of Zimmerman to make it appear that he thought Martin was suspicious thanks to his race; CNN reported that Zimmerman had used a racial slur during his 911 call. That thematic stretched all the way to the White House, with President Obama suggesting that Zimmerman was acting out of racism, since as Obama put it, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” The truth is far different. Not only was Zimmerman not a racist – he had a black business partner, has Afro-Peruvian roots, and helped out underprivileged black kids in his neighborhood – he also was a supporter of the very president who would later slander him by innuendo. As Robert, George’s brother, told me, George is “a registered Democrat. He registered as a Hispanic. He kind of did some internal family campaigning for Obama.” George supported Obama, Robert explained, because “He was like many young people who thought that the president’s club had been a club of white men since our founding, and that there really wasn’t a good reason for that, except that the right man for the job who happened to be black had not come along, and that electing a man who happened to be biracial or multiracial like we were, would reflect not just a situation that we found ourselves in ethnically in our family, but the reality of where America had come, which is that we are melting pot of cultures and we are a diverse society. “Ironically,” Robert added, “the man who he campaigned for within his family was the same man seemingly indicting him in way from the Rose Garden years later.”

“He registered as a Hispanic.”

What the heck does that mean?

This guy is totally brilliant, but the best tactics against Piers Morgan would feature bluster and insults —not even one scintilla of good manners.

He made amazing points, but I think they were lost on low-information voters, sadly a demographic that appears on an endless upswing.

He’s going to need to somewhat overcome his good upbringing —I can’t believe I’m saying this.

He’s still being railroaded, so, yes.

Jackson and Sharpton and their acolytes were shaking people down for decades before Obama was elected.

Condemned without trial by those he thought his allies and supported by those he apparently despised? I feel even more sorry for him now.

“He registered as a Hispanic.”

I take it to mean that he checked that box on the census form. FWIW, the reality is that "Hispanic" is less of a race than "Italian" or "German." There are more Argentines of Italian origin than of Spanish origin although they can claim "Hispanic" racial preference.

I feel sorry for anyone unjustly accused. I don't see where his politics has anything to do with that, unless you think the right to legitimate self-defense should be limited based on political affiliation.

Who knows? Should he be acquitted, perhaps he'll become a force for good instead of for Baraq.

The attack on George Zimmerman is an attack on the right of effective self defense, Zimmerman just got stuck in the middle.

We need George Zimmerman to prevail in court and for that reason we need to support him, exactly as WE WOULD SUPPORT YOU IF YOU WERE ON TRIAL.

Hell yes because it doesn't matter if he is black, white, brown, yellow, green, liberal, conservative, or communist, he is an American and has a constitutional right to protect himself from violent attack.

“White Hispanic”

Yes, and if he really supported the Telepromter-in-Chief then he is catching his own medicine. I hope he gets off but then we should tar and feather him for supporting an anti-American in the White House.

George Zimmerman, having been lied to and deluded, for most likely many years, by liberal politicians and the liberal media, isn't the problem. Turning on him, or, rather, against him, because of not liking his position on politics, is, in my opinion, despicable. Zimmerman's views regarding Obozo, or any other politician should NOT be used to vilify him regarding his actions that took the life of someone who he believed was trying to kill him.

I'd say you've got it. I don't think that can be attributed to a particular person.

It's no consolation whatsoever, but this episode has given George Zimmerman a first-hand look at the unbelievably vast and uncompromising network of fascists preaching diversity uber alles.

Seriously, take a step outside of yourself and read your own words. You ask if people still feel sorry for Zimmerman. Then you ask the question of whether he would support you as a white man. And, to top it off, after complaining about being accused of vilifying him, you make the statement that you are enjoying his pain. I find this to be a pathetic and underhanded attempt to vilify a man who was defending his own life.

I guess I'm "White Erse". Very, very, very white.

So, I guess I'm "White/White".

I'd feel sorry for anyone who is being put through this wringer after exercising his fully legal right to defend himself. Hopefully it's not lost on George that the NBPP crowd offered money for his scalp, while a white guy is working to save his butt.

None of this comes as a surprise, IMO.

Now I’m not interested in his pleas.

Funny, i was listening to his attorney begging for money and how Geoerge is near desperate and destitute with only $200 left in his legal defense fund.

Well, I’ll admit he’s pretty resourceful and creative.

In fact,on second thought, given his background in community service and with kids, I suspect he would..........

I certainly feel compassion for someone who was so blind to race in his own heart that he got taken in by someone pretending to be the same. Hopefully he will have time to reflect on the fact that 0bama cares nothing about people in general much less any racial group. If 0bama cared about anyone at all he wouldn't be the biggest divider of the American people on almost every possible point of difference.

I know you guys are angry with me be let me try to explain my position.
First, let me say again - I hope he gets off (he is innocent)

Ever heard the phrase
“hoist by one’s own petard”? It means:

To be hurt, or destroyed by one’s own plot or device, of one’s own doing which one intended for another; to be “blown up by one’s own bomb”.

Zimmerman has been using race as a weapon and now the left is using it against him.
Can’t you see the irony?

I enhanced your statement, to help drive home his stupidity.

With that being said, I wish no one irreparable harm and going to prison for protecting your own life is as about irreparable as possible! Although I wish all liberals a serious comeuppance, I don't want their life lessons to be deadly (and Zimmerman going to prison would be a DEATH sentence)!
