Zimmerman Brother: George Supported Obama, Wanted to End 'Club of White Men'
Breitbart ^ | 2/6/12 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 02/06/2013 7:33:24 PM PST by Impala64ssa

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 a 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 a way from the Rose Garden.”

So it seems Mr. Zimmerman is a well-meaning idealist who got a rude awakening. I hope for his sake this ordeal becomes a, I HATE this smarmy phrase, teachable moment for him and his family.

Take it for what it’s worth, but Latinos will likely watch this whole court episode unfold. I think they would silently support George getting off on this case.

Eventually everyone who supports the left party due to identity politics gets screwed. It’s why actual private working class folks aren’t keen on Dems like they used to be. Eventually a new demo comes in and you get screwed in favor of the faster growing demo.

A black women who originally backed Zimmerman was bullied into backing off too... Poverty pimps smelled white blood in the water and they went on attack. Their big older brothers - the MSM was ready ... nostrils flared, hatred on ready...

Zimmerman's been trying to prove to the lynch mob that he's NOT white ever since. What madness...

Mr. Zimmerman didn’t realize that he was one of the hated white guys, LOL.

Zimmerman would not be in this mess if he had just followed the Mexican tradition of taking his Mother’s maiden name for his last name. Instead he was given his father’s name which is not only white, but Jewish.

George, how’s that obama vote workin’ out for you?

Did you notice which race of people is supporting you and which isn’t?

I bet you wish those damn White Club members who support you would mind their own business, eh?

And those Sons Of Barack are really jumping to support you, huh? Feels great to be loved by them, huh?

I believe George is innocent due to self defense, but George aint the brightest bulb on the tree.

but Jewish

German. Some German Jews are Zimmermans.

Martin is a German name, too.

Trayvon? Who knows. Probably picked at random from "The Book of Weird Made-up Names for Black Kids."

Because his last name is Zimmerman.

Gosh, it really does suck to be stiffed by your hero, doesn't it George Zimmerman? I think your trust in Barry was greatly misplaced and may still be fatal to your freedom. While this might be a teachable moment, I don't hold out a lot of hope for George and family at this point.

” - - - had been a club of white men - - - “

This is blatant racism at its worst!

Zimmerman put his racial prejudice above Country and voted accordingly.

When will ‘White Men’ be accepted as equals in our Society?

Will there ever be a time when ‘White Men’ can run for political office without fear of being labeled with the “W” word?

All of the Federal Money spent on Education has gone for naught, as racism against “Whites” is as strong as ever, and could be getting even stronger!

How can the Liberal Agenda Media (LAM) possibly still maintain that Zimmerman is NOT a racist?

And yet there was a time when there was a dream - - - - .

Could be Zimmerman is trying to get the left to support him. Or it could be that he thinks he’s probably going to prison and he wants the home boys to like him.

Apparently, George and his family found out that elections have consequences. When you vote for LIARS, you may be judged by LIARS.

Why I’d imagined this mulatto hispanic bigot Zimmerman would be supporting that great hispanic patriot Marco Rubio.

Hispanics don’t really speak up unless their Latino *community activists* get them all riled up, and of course we know that those community activists only work for the interests of the Democrats. Most Hispanic protesters are just rent-a-mob.
