Skip to comments.Zimmerman Brother: George Supported Obama, Wanted to End 'Club of White Men'
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, hed 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, Georges 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 presidents club had been a club of white men since our founding, and that there really wasnt 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?
Not anymore! I love it when libtards destroy their own.
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.
Hows that club working out for you now George?
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.
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.
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.
Bet he was surprised to be labeled as a “White Hispanic” by the lying media.
I still feel sorry for him. He got screwed by the left, from Obama on down.
What is that saying? A conservative is a liberal who has been mugged.....something like that.
Anyone who knows the quote, could you please state it? Thanks.
I put a little in the hat for George every month, just like I do for Free Republic. It isn’t much but it’s bound to help.
“ALL THAT IS NECESSARY FOR EVIL TO PREVAIL IS THAT GOOD MEN DO NOTHING”!
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.
“we need to support him, exactly as WE WOULD SUPPORT YOU IF YOU WERE ON TRIAL”
Do you think HE would support this old white guy?
