George Zimmerman rips prosecutor Angela Corey in new painting
CNN ^ | 1/22/14 | Stephanie Gallman

Posted on 01/23/2014 5:31:16 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

George Zimmerman, who sold his first painting on eBay for a whopping $100,000, is at it again.

And this time his subject is the woman who charged him with second-degree murder: Special Prosecutor Angela Corey.

The painting, a swirl of bright red and yellow, shows Corey with her fingers pinched.

The caption, in all caps, says, "I have this much respect for the American judicial system - Angie C."

Pick up all of the fruit you can Georgie. That tree will stop shaking. Sooner than you think.

This is ridiculous. Ten years from now they will have to write who GZ is on the back of the painting. 20 years from now they will have write WHY he was “important.”

George, I don’t know if the spot light is good for you. You should just write a book like every other celebrity.

No kidding. Paying six-figures for a Zimmerman painting is foolish. I sure hope the buyers aren’t doing it as investment, thinking it’ll appreciate in value.

George appears to be trying to find something productive to do. Who would hire him? He has been made into a pariah by the MSM and the Race industry. Hell of a fate for a man that appeared to me to be making a good attempt at being a real mensch.

I hope that putrid thug, Corrie, sees the painting and has a stroke. Not a lethal one, just enough that she drools, needs a catheter and rides a wheelchair instead of her current broom.

Zimmerman is sitting on a gold mine.

There is a prominent “artist” in NYC who doesn’t actually create art. He hires art school graduates to create art, for minimum wage, then perhaps makes a change or two, or not, then signs the work and sells it.

And he has sold many millions of dollars of such works.

Of course, Zimmerman probably has more character than that, at could at least offer art school graduates a decent wage to help get them started as professional artists. But still, right now the well is deep to buy an “original Zimmerman” work of art.

I might add that if Zimmerman has a sense of humor, he can specifically commission some of these artists to create works that attack the scoundrels involved in his persecution, depicting them as ugly monsters, with deep sarcasm.

For example, imagine the price a Zimmerman painting would get if it made great sport of Eric Holder, or even Obama? There are lots of people who would pay a premium for such works.

There is a particularly prickly FReeper that despises that joke and has rebuked me soundly for it a few times.

Too bad George Zimmer isn’t in the news more often, we could make comments about “Well, he shouldn’t have shot that kid, then they wouldn’t have fired him from Men’s Warehouse”.

You forgot to mention that Kinkaide made prints of all his paintings and made his fortune selling the prints.

It improves the chances that you will have to see one of his prints almost every place you go. ugh!

One thing you have to say is, “George is pretty good with a brush”. That painting, if he actually painted it himself, is not all that bad.

Actually, the American justice system trial by jury) showed how much respect it had for both Corey and the biased judge. GZ was not only freed but got his gun(s) back.

(At an astronomical expense for a top-grade lawyer, that is.)

I don’t get it...............

....what we have here is a Paradigm Shift.....

A paradigm shift (or revolutionary science) is, according to Thomas Kuhn, in his influential book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (1962), a change in the basic assumptions, or paradigms, within the ruling theory of science.

It is in contrast to his idea of normal science. According to Kuhn, "A paradigm is what members of a scientific community, and they alone, share" (The Essential Tension, 1977).

Unlike a normal scientist, Kuhn held, "a student in the humanities has constantly before him a number of competing and incommensurable solutions to these problems, solutions that he must ultimately examine for himself" (The Structure of Scientific Revolutions).

Once a paradigm shift is complete, a scientist cannot, for example, reject the germ theory of disease to posit the possibility that miasma causes disease or reject modern physics and optics to posit that aether carries light.

In contrast, a critic in the humanities can choose to adopt an array of stances (e.g., Marxist criticism, Freudian criticism, Deconstruction, 19th-century-style literary criticism), which may be more or less fashionable during any given period but all regarded as legitimate.

Since the 1960s, the term has also been used in numerous non-scientific contexts to describe a profound change in a fundamental model or perception of events, even though Kuhn himself restricted the use of the term to the hard sciences. Compare as a structured form of Zeitgeist.

I think George needs to avoid straying too far into the Ward Churchill school of art. One of George's prior paintings was compared to some already existing artwork and the details seemed the same.

Perhaps somebody can post the wonderful artwork Churchill created alongside the orginal from which it was obviously copied. It depicted a line of mounted indian warriors along a ridge line, as I recall.
