Skip to comments.Anti-Semitism at Anti Zimmerman Protest: T-Shirt Says ‘You Ashkenazi Crafted Devil’
Posted on 07/17/2013 4:45:51 PM PDT by SJackson
A man leading a demonstration against the recent acquittal of George Zimmerman in a murder trial that mesmerized the United States, was caught on camera wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with anti-Semitic language, Breitbart.com reports.
Shots of the protester and his T-shirt, were broadcast on KTLA-5 Los Angeles, and featured by the Los Angeles Times neither of which spotted the offensive language. The shirt reads: YOU ASHKENAZI CRAFTED DEVIL, an apparent reference to Zimmerman, who is not Jewish as his name might suggest.
The term Ashkenazi refers to Jews of Eastern European origin, rather than Sephardic Jews who lived in Arab and Latin countries. While both groups trace their lineage back to Spain, Ashkenazi Jews primarily went north, into Europe after being expelled from the country in 1492, while Sephardic Jews headed south to the Magreb, North Africa and Asia or to European trading capitals, London and Amsterdam, where they maintained separate traditions.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Well, every demonstration needs a T Shirt. And no, Ashkenazi Jews aren't Spaniards who headed north, Ashkenaz being the name of todays Germany back to about the 4th century. But it's not the point of the article or tshirt. Poor George Zimmerman not only got un-Hispaniced, but he became a Jew. To the haters
The term is “grafted devil” - this is reference to the Nation of Islam’s belief that white people are the descendants of the reanimated bloodless corpses of black people that were grafted together by an evil sorcerer/scientist named Jakub.
What does that mean?
The actual word used was Crafted...but the meaning might have been the same.
See post 3.
That is just plain nutty.
Good grief! Is this true? I always knew they were nutty, but I honestly didn’t know they were that nutty. This makes Mormon beliefs look almost rational...
Thank you for reminding me of that. Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X and Farrakhan would have done great in Hollywood, but they’ve probably done OK doing what they do.. Didn’t know the considered Jacob evil, though that he created white people I knew, thought it was kind of a progression thing for blacks to take over later. Anyway, could make a great movie, not enough money in tshirts.
Tolerating the ignorance of the intolerant is getting way out of hand. Walmart should start offering free lobotomies. Wonder how many people looking for something for nothing would go for it.
Nation of Islam BS rearing it’s ugly head .
If you were to venture into Northern New Mexico, you would find grave stones in the old cemeteries with the Star of David and menorahs. The people there do not remember being Jewish, but these were Jewish Spaniards kicked out of Spain. Zimmerman probably is Jewish but doesn’t know it.
As far as anti-Semitism goes, I suppose it’s easier for some people to substitute Jews as THE problem than to have a coherent thought.
I am always surprised by anti-Semitic thought. I guess the hatred is so old it is just reflex. But I don’t know. Hate is hate. My people hated the Irish and wore kilts, chased the wee buggers with the claymore...
So, he’s not white, and he’s not Jewish, and he’s not a racist. Can’t these malcontents get anything right about Zimmerman?
You get the darndest things from Zazzle.
Did they really hate them or were they just annoyed at the singing?
Must be someone like me.
We have had people acting like Nazis in this country for awhile. Everyone ignores it, because it wouldn’t be politically correct to point it out.
They’re irrational. Facts don’t matter.
Where does George Zimmerman’s family have any connection to New Mexico?
“The term is ‘grafted devil’ - this is reference to the Nation of Islams belief that white people are the descendants of the reanimated bloodless corpses of black people that were grafted together by an evil sorcerer/scientist named Jakub.”
*Yeesh!* Sounds like an Alan Moore or Neil Gamain penned graphic novel.
In all seriousness, this is as whacky as mainstream Islamonazism.
There was a story in newspaper about 7-10 years ago about Catholic priest from NM that did genetic blood test and found out that his bloodline have Jewish origin from Spain. Many residents in NM have the same bloodline.
Jakub in some versions is purely evil, in others he is well-intentioned but becomes evil.
This tale seems to have come from the mysterious founder of the Nation, Wallace Fard and was transmitted to Elijah Muhammad.
This is one of the tamer things they believe.
The Nuwaubians, the Ausar Auset and the Temple of Moorish Science are interesting too.
I dunno, I’m thinking graphic novel, with perhaps Jim Starlin or Dave Gibbons doing the art.
What a dummy — everybody knows that you can tell by the name that George Zimmerman is obviously a descendant of German Nazis.
Sounds like a fusion of Islam and voodoo.
As to antisemitism, less interesting, and you're right, there's a large reflexive component.
Do a search for “The Times of Israel” on 17 July 2013 ran a very good article on this so-called Jewishness of GZ. Everyone should read it and save it.
I found out more about Trayvon’s mother than I ever knew - for instance, she kicked out her three-year-old son and sent hi to live with this father who had a second wife(?). His father was with her for about 11 years when he walked out on her because he had found another girlfriend. Trayvon had bonded with his “step-mother” and this was traumatic for him. There was more about the family situation and why Trayvon was apparently living with his father’s ‘fiance’ at the time of his death.
Then the ethnicity of Robert Zimmerman, Sr. was alluded to indirectly. Robert is a Catholic who married a Peruvian woman who had a black grandfather. Robert Z. was in the US Army in Vietnam. So there is apparently no tie to being Jewish at all. I assume that Robert is at least part “German” from his father’s side [because of his German surname].
Everyone should read this article!!!
Singing was the root of it all. It really got under our kilts!
Don’t know anything about that. Last name of Zimmerman in a Hispanic does not seem far fetched to me though.
Las Vegas New Mexico is what I know of. Probably more if you ask around.
All over the Spanish and Portuguese territories in the Americas and in Europe are Jews who were forced to recant. Many don’t know they are Jewish. Ferdinand and Isabella, The Catholic Kings made it very hard on Jews everywhere.
Yes, thank you. That’s the Montefiore Cemetary, established by the Jewish community of Las Vegas in the mid/late 19th century. One of the earliest west of the Mississippi. When you mentioned that I was thinking of random graves in remote cemetaries, which probably exist. . Amongst the other early ones, Hills of Eternity in CA where Wyatt Earp is buried. And a strange one to me, first old Jewish Cemetary I’d seen in the west, down a trail from the Boothill graveyard in Tombstone. Now restored. Thanks.
I know there are older ones in the mountains. I have talked to locals who were discovering there roots, but I can’t remember where he said they were.
Thus far no insistence to remove references to the Confederacy or flags, but I'm sure it's coming.
Back to New Mexico. I bet if you knock around Los Alamos or the Enchanted Circle area you could find interesting artifacts. There is a large Jewish Heritage center in Albuquerque, http://www.nmjewishhistory.org/ I bet if you contact them you could find out all kinds of information. I didn't drill down into the web site but lots of info here.
OK - since I am the person who first brought this article to our attention, I would like to add a few more thoughts.
The article explicitly states that the Zimmerman family is not Jewish. So, why are some Freepers still harking back to some sort of Jewish connection? It baffles me.
Another person mentioned that he never knew anyone named Zimmerman who was not Jewish. Huh??? I live in the Midwest where there are lots of people of German descent. I certainly know personally people with the name Zimmerman who are not Jewish, and never have been Jewish. Zimmerman is a very common German surname, and it will be found all over the German speaking world.
By-the-way, I personally have the surname MARX in my family tree; twice in my maternal line and once in my paternal line. That does not make me Jewish - as all of these lines were Catholic Rheinlanders.
Many Jews have Germanic surnames, It is a fact. Names such as Friedmann, Klein, Marx, Zimmermann, Hoffmann, etc are very common all over Germany, Austria, etc. Most of them are Christians, not Jews.
