George Zimmermanís father speaks out in defense of son
NY Daily News ^ | March 23, 2012 | Nina Mandell

As cries for his arrest continue to grow louder, George Zimmerman's father defended him in a one-page letter, saying he isn't a racist but rather of victim of sensationalized media coverage.

The neighborhood watch volunteer, 28, has been in hiding since he shot and killed unarmed Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old on his way back home to his father's house.

His father, Robert Zimmerman, 64, said in a letter to the Orlando Sentinel that his son was Hispanic and grew up in a multiracial family.

“He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever,” the letter says, according to the newspaper. “The media portrayal of George as a racist could not be further from the truth.”

He defended his son's actions on the day that he got out of his car and shot the teen, despite being strongly discouraged by a 911 dispatcher.

It’s become wordy here, hasn’t it? As far as witnesses, are there any eyewitnesses? I thought not. It’s nothing but the 911 call recordings, Zimmerman’s self-interested testimony, and the police report after the fact, as far as I can tell. So OK, it’s more like a Columbo mystery with Peter Falk returning repeatedly (to Zimmerman) and saying, “Excuse me, there is this one more thing.”

Gun nuts?

Why would we waste our time trying to explain anything about guns to an idiot like you?

The day is coming that you will be begging for protection, and the cops aren’t interested in YOUR safety...You’re on your own Pussy!!!

Rest assured that no one will ever ask for help from overzealous firearm fanatics and wannabe defenders of the Constitution like yourself.

I don’t know whether Zimmerman is guilty or not, but, I know he will do time to appease the blood lust of the mob to lynch the white hispanic Jew.

If Zimmerman does time, his chances of leaving prison alive are slim and none.

I hope you are speaking for yourself, because I’m sure you would be one of those that would hide in the rush to be protected by those like me.

Then again, if you are on the other side...

Either way you will find a way cuddle up to power instead of fighting for it.

I've had you figured out for a long time, based on and thanks to your own comments.

I don't know why I waste my time exchanging comments with you. I'll try harder to ignore you in the future.

I’m sure you’ve got everyone here “figured out”. Good for you, and thank you for ignoring us, instead of replying with content free posts, but insult full from a petulant and insecure child, like the post I am replying to.

I always speak for myself. But I sense that you, like many gun collectors and accumulators, anxiously await a race war or a second revolution, where you will be able to make use of your arsenal. Wishful thinking (mine too!), but if you look carefully at the structure of this society and the governments on all levels it is unlikely to occur. Thank your Constitution and the ways it has been implemented. We will sooner see a civil war, coup d’etats and violent changes of the government in other countries that deserve those as much as the U.S. such as Argentina and Bulgaria. We’ve got ourselves the kind of permanent stability leading to a slow but inevitable fall that the Communists only dreamed of.

Somebody like you, of course.

I have read there is at least one person who saw the innocent child Trayvon pummeling the evil lily-white Hispanic white man, Mr. Zimmerman while he lay prone on the ground.

Whenever the media, Democrats, GOP candidates and mobs of blacks all agree that whitey is wrong, I don't trust what is going on. This thing has been astroturfed for political purposes, and it seems the whole country is joing in. It is disgusting.

I came across this report posted just after the incidence occurred ( Feb. 27) and way before the national interest.

I found it interesting, and so may you.

From the Local Fox station in Orlando:

Man shot and killed in neighborhood altercation

” Whenever the media, Democrats, GOP candidates and mobs of blacks all agree that whitey is wrong, I don’t trust what is going on. This thing has been astroturfed for political purposes, and it seems the whole country is joing in. It is disgusting. “

I’ve found that politicians will always do or say what they can subsequently use to get reelected, and not what is right, fair, or beneficial to the country or to individuals. That’s why I do not trust most politicians.

The media will enthusiastically bend any story if it can use the race card for the benefit of the so-called ethnic minorities. Whites, especially the anglo euro saxon gentile versions are targeted and intended to be the self hating and sacrificial lambs. No I’m not racist or white supremacist but I don’t care to be pushed into “fool-dom or sap-dom” by those who believe that only my tribe is inherently racist or wrong and all the others inherently the victim.
