Zimmerman Crash Rescue Induces Derangement For Radio Lefties
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 07/24/2013 8:03:11 AM PDT by chessplayer

A bad stretch for liberals just got worse, all because George Zimmerman decided again he needed to get out of a vehicle.

This time Zimmerman helped rescue a family of four from a wrecked SUV in Florida. Turns out it was more than left-wing radio hosts Bill Press and Stephanie Miller could bear, as both expressed doubts about the incident while heaping aspersions on Zimmerman, who recently showed how a man of color facing a murder charge in a high-profile case could get a fair trial in America. (Audio clips after the jump)

This morning, Press and guest Igor Volsky of ThinkProgress suggested Zimmerman's actions in helping the family were staged as part of a ruse to salvage his public image (h/t for audio clips, Brian Maloney, mrctv.org) --

PRESS: Well, I would hope that if you come across a car accident that anybody, even a murderer, would get out and help them out, right? Not get out and kick them in the teeth or something. But so, two questions I have about this to both of you. Number one, what does it matter that he helped somebody out of a car? Doesn't erase the fact that he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, right?

VOLSKY: No.

PRESS PRODUCER PETER OGBURN: No.

PRESS: Unjustifiably in my opinion and I think the facts show that. But secondly, all right, I know I'm going to get in trouble for this, do you really think this happened?

OGBURN: No!

PRESS: All right, you're the one in trouble!

OGBURN: Yeah, I don't think so. It smells, it stinks to high heaven!

VOLSKY: Where are the pictures or video?

OGBURN: Yeah.

VOLSKY: One of the things I think that's has been most frustrating after the verdict is this effort to rehabilitate his image.

Not sure which is more ludicrous -- Press suggesting that "even a murderer" would help accident victims stricken on the side of the road, or his airy dismissal, "what does it matter that he helped somebody out of a car"? Imagine the reaction from Press, Volsky and liberals across the board if news broke that Zimmerman passed an accident scene where people were hurt and did not stop to help. Doesn't take much in imagination to hear their collective AH HAH!

More along the same lines from libtalker Stephanie Miller and three of her favorite coatcatchers (audio) --

MILLER: Oh, this just in, apparently George Zimmerman saved Baby Jessica from the well.

CHRIS LAVOIE: Oh good. Good for him.

MILLER: I did not realize that either. I forgot that story.

JIM WARD: Good for him. Well, well, well, he then spun back in time and unexploded the Hindenburg.

MILLER: Wow, he is awesome.

WARD: What a guy! That's just the kind of guy he is, he's just, he's just splendid.

MILLER: All right, join us if you're calling bull (bleep) on this George Zimmerman rescued story. ... Oh, this just in regarding the Southwest Airlines flight, breaking, Zimmerman steps in and acts as nose gear for plane and pulled out 300 passengers from the wreckage.

WARD: Right, that's just the kind of guy he is.

MILLER: He's just awesome!

WARD: He went to the front of the plane and jumped down into the wheel well and stopped the plane with his feet. His feet are completely burned off now.

MILLER: Like Fred Flintstone except with a plane. ... John Fugelsang, are you also calling bull (bleep) on this George Zimmerman rescued story like we are or, uh ...?

FUGELSANG: I haven't heard that much about it yet, you know, I don't know enough about it. I understand he did wear a cape and now for all the, this actually wipes away the fact that he assaulted a female cop and had a restraining order against him from his old fiancee for battery, so I guess he's always been a great guy.

WARD: Standing his ground.

The most ludicrous thing is that they expect/need video. IF there were video at a random accident scene, then I would be more suspicious, like I am of those faked viral videos where the “unseen” camera always has the action at perfect center.

"This time Zimmerman helped rescue a family of four"

How many people did he rescue the night Trayvon was scouting houses to break into? We will never know.

These people are deranged. Something is wrong up in the head in these people.

We can’t put other issues aside, and praise a man for what he did helping out in a car accident situation? Even though this man was found not guilty against the wishes of the liberals in the trial, we can’t put that aside and still praise his actions in the accident?

Or, is political calculation and political statements the only thing liberals think about? In the liberal mind, is one “evil” if on the wrong side of some liberal issue, and in such case, nothing that person does can be good??? What am I missing????

I’ve given up on liberals in my personal life. They’re simply irrational, so reasoning with them is pointless. The best you can hope to do is to plant a virus. “Is it really true that all truth is relative?”

Other than that, I simply avoid them or go around them.

Some kind can only be driven out through prayer and fasting.

Stephanie Miller’s old man was Barry Goldwater’s running mate in 1964. Hard to believe, I know.

George Zimmerman, an ordinary "white Hispanic" man of Peruvian and Jewish descent, is a decent human being. He mentors black children, stands up for homeless people who are beaten by cops, rescues families in car crashes, and defends himself when attacked.

You da man, George.

They are upset for the same reason they are upset that Zimmerman defended a black homeless man who had been beaten by the white son of a police officer, and for the same reason they are upset that Zimmerman tutored black kids for free. All of these things are real world proof that Zimmerman is not the bad guy they so very much want him to be. And these are the same people who deny that Martin gave Zimmerman a broken nose, two black eyes, and repeatedly slammed his head into the concrete - despite the medical evidence, and despite the testimony of witness who were called by the prosecution. The Zimmerman haters have trouble dealing with reality, and hate any real world facts that contradict their fantasy beliefs.

Rational people adjust their beliefs when necessary in order to match any real world evidence that contradicts their beliefs. Irrational people try to change the real world in order to match their irrational beliefs.

Bah. They’re obsessed with this because every second spent on bashing Zimmerman is another second they don’t have to defend what Obama has done, and is doing to America.

Although I have issues with Zimmerman’s judgement that night I give him credit for getting involved with his community, not passing the buck and letting “other people” handle it.

Unlike liberals like these who sit on the sidelines and mock and deride his actions.

At least one family is grateful for his “community activism” and not just “rubberneck” his way by.

That is why the left must be actively suppressed. Freedom of Speech and Assembly were never intended to support treason, sedition, murder of innocent children, theft of public property,graft, corruption and oppression.

Press should be fired for this, or sued, or both. He called Zimmerman a murderer, and according to the verdict, he is NOT a murderer. Press is considered a “mainstream” journalist, and this is unacceptable behavior for someone claiming to be mainstream.

Are either of these claims true? I have never heard either one before.

George Zimmerman mentored black children for free.

George Zimmerman protested the SPD's lack of interest in prosecuting a guy that beat a homeless black man.

George Zimmerman looked in on neighbors who had been terrorized by home invaders.

George Zimmerman volunteered to spend time watching out for his neighbors.

Now George Zimmerman helped rescue someone who was trapped in an overturned truck.

Burn the Good Samaritan!!!

That’s kinda like the left’s view of the death penalty.
It would be shameful to execute an innocent man,
but releasing a dangerous man into society risks the lives
of many more innocent people.

So, should they err on one side or the other?

They choose the latter error, because it can’t be attributable to them.
