EXCLUSIVE: Robert Zimmerman to DOJ: Stop the 'Witch Hunt'
Breitbart ^ | 7-16-2013 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 07/17/2013 5:40:30 AM PDT by Raebie

On Tuesday evening, Robert Zimmerman, brother of George Zimmerman, responded to reports that Eric Holder’s Department of Justice had solicited the public for information about George that could help a federal civil rights prosecution. The DOJ has even set up an email address for tips on Zimmerman. In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Robert labeled the effort a “witch hunt,” asking, “How many other individuals has the DOJ witch-hunted in this way? I think that the state of FL when they embarked on their malicious prosecution of George would have liked nothing more than for he FBI to uncover any sign of racism that could be attributed to George. The FBI interviewed three dozen people who were close to George for any indication that George was a racist or had racist tendencies. What their investigation revealed thus far is that quite the opposite is true. “Political persecution has reached a dimension unforeseen by many,” Robert Zimmerman continued. “It is inconceivable that high-ranking officials would endorse this kind of behavior. It is profoundly disserving that they facilitate it. I would remind the Department of Justice that a verdict has been reached in this case, and that the reputation of Sanford, Florida and the trust of the people of Sanford, Florida in regards to their law enforcement agencies is more important than continuing politically motivated and race-tinged assaults on an innocent man’s character.”

This DOJ would not hesitate to bring charges based on an anonymous email tip.

Just go on TV and announce it is a WAR ON HISPANICS and they will scatter like rodents

They are trying to buy the hispanic vote with Shamnesty, and this would put a kink in their plans

The DOJ can’t touch him and they know it.

What has happened since this incident 16 months ago culminating in this acquittal has made him immune from anything that the DOJ or anyone else wants to throw at him.

Meanwhile Racial Jeantel continues to speak and give away the game: “cracka” means “poleeese”. Think that one through.

He be runnin from the poleese that dark and rainy night until he decided that he be tired of runnin from the poleeese and went back for a beatdown.

Yep, with an IQ between 60 and 70, it’s hard to realize the implications of what you’re lying about.

If “cracka” means “cop or security guard”,
Trayvon made a conscious (though drug addled) decision to go beat down said “cop or security guard”.

Students of 20th Century political history can not help but notice similarities between the political show trials under Stalin and what we are witnessing here. What the likes of Obama, Holder and others on the federal level and the likes of Angela Corey and others on the state level are failing to realize is that they don't have the population completely subjugated and disarmed. Enough resistance remains whereby the tables will be turned and the Hunters (Communist Mob) will become the Hunted.

It is not a question of IF but a question of WHEN!!!

Grounds for impeachment.

POTUS throwing the weight of the federal government at one mundane upstanding citizen, for an alleged and lawful (albeit distasteful), affront he was duly adjudicated innocent of, is outright unconstitutional oppression.

an anonymous tip that would likely lead to not only charges but interviews nationwide by the 'tipper' that would write:

"I sell soft serve ice cream and one day George Zimmerman came in. He stood for around 30 seconds looking at the chocolate and then the vanilla. He wrinkled his nose when I asked if he wanted chocolate!!!!!!! Then ordered vanilla!!!!!!"

Next day the charges are filed and the email leaked to the press. The ice cream server does the media circuit and is interviewed not only by the lame stream media but is front and center on The View describing over and over again the shear that George had when the server asked about the chocolate and the elation displayed upon ordering the vanilla.

I have a tip in the Trayvon Martin case:

Stop the Inquisition. Double jeopardy because you disagee with jurors smacks of totalitarianism. Will you look into the 500 blacks murdered in Chicago in the past year, or would prosecuting black on black violence ruin your world-view? Opening the case in civil court gives Zimmerman wide latitude to go after Trayvon’s and your character and motives.

Do you really want to foment racial violence? THAT’s what you’re doing.

Racist totalitarian jerks.

Listen to O Maras interviews and his work for young black men
Then read Z’s parents home page regarding his work
They both were not turning away from the problem. They were trying
to make a difference.
What did they get for their efforts? The sister of the homeless black man Z stood up for against the son of Stanford police officer was an officer in local NAACP and organized the protest against him

Elections have consequences. Sometimes the most important consequences are not immediately obvious.

America is getting excellent experience and insight into how detrimental an “Africanized Government” can be.

Because of this hard-learned experience, I think it is highly unlikely there will be another black person POTUS for many many generation, liberal or conservative.

It’s just one example given by his father on their homepage. Iirc Don-o posted it in a thread. Haven’t been able to find it since

Did you know he bought phone cards and put money in canteen accounts of fellow inmates when he was in jail? George takes “love your neighbor” to heart! His faith is biblical Gods plan at work. Can’t wait to see how God uses Z!

They are milking it for all it is worth — it’s called job justification.

This will be the investigation with no end because they can now keep 50 black racist lawyers employed looking under every rock for something — anything — keeping hope alive and keeping themselves employed at taxpayer expense.

I like those dark, brooding eyes.

I noticed it the other day at the gym on the TVs over the stair climber when he was being interviewed.

I said to myself, "What, how have I missed this? I usually have a nose for these things. Like a bloodhound"
