I like it. I like it a lot.
Many of these settlers raised cattle. "Cracker" is said to have originally applied to Florida cowboys who drove cattle by cracking bullwhips.
A good book on this subject is black crackers and white liberals.
Or at least their latest Horst Wessel. They've created a number of martyrs over the years, including Joe Hill (executed for murder in 1915), Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti (executed for murder in 1927), Julius and Ethel Rosenberg (executed for espionage in 1953), etc.
Of course, as you probably know, lots of Jews have names that are the same for Gentiles. Was his father or mother Jewish?
A Zimmermann makes rooms. If he's a master at this trade, he's a Zimmermeister (master carpenter).
Ethel Merman's name was originally Zimmermann--it appears that she was not Jewish. (She played the mother-in-law in It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.)

Quick - Someone trademark “P.... A.. C......” We don’t want to be exploited now.
It’s his father’s name-Hid mother is hispanic.
The online German translator agrees with you. My German teacher must have been an idiot. Or I was paying too much attention to the frauleins ...
Sorry for the obvious plug.... The US Government trained me to kill Radical Mooslims and Communists... now THAT is irOnic.
My question was who was Jewish. There could be Peruvian Jews and German Jews, German-named American Jews, or neither of them might be a Jew. Also, it really has no bearing on this shooting in my view.
> And I always thought that ‘zimmer’ meant tailor?! [photo of Men’s Warehouse Zimmer]
I see that you’re joking. “Schneider” means tailor for those who are curious. “Zimmer” means room, and according to the German Wikipedia, “Der Familienname Zimmermann ist abgeleitet von dem Beruf des Zimmermanns” [The surname Zimmermann is derived from the occupation of carpenter]. It’s possible, of course, for someone to have that name and be Jewish, but it’s a common German name (the 20th most common according to Wikipedia), so there’s no reason to assume it. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zimmermann_%28Familienname%29
Whatever his ancestry it’s outrageous the way racist panderers are condemning him without hearing his side of the story.
Someone suggested to me that there may be an undercurrent of anti-semitism in this case. It’s quite possible, I think.
The leftist liberals and the tolerant blacks would go berserk.
I apologize to any conservative that was offended with with above but it is a question I feel needs to asked. As for any bleeding heart liberal my suggestion would involve doing something with SAND.
” Zimmer means room, and according to the German Wikipedia”
Wrong dictionary. According to the MSM dictionary, a Zimmerman is a latino who is whitewashed with cracker Photoshop, and he may or may not eat bagels.
Hispanics with non-Hispanic names have risen to prominence from time to time. In the 1890's, the Spanish general Don Valeriano Weyler y Nicolau gained notoriety when his unsuccessful effort to put down the rebellion in Cuba led to many deaths. In the 1980's, Mexico had an oil minister named Juan Eibenscutz. In Chile, General Augusto Pinochet Ugarte overthrew the Red regime headed by Salvador Allende in 1973, while a couple years later, Leopoldo Galtieri led a coup d'etat in neighboring Argentina. At about the same time, Guatemala had a president named Kjell Laugerud Garcia.
The Coast Guard Training ship, a tall ship, named “Eagle” was originally named the “Horst Wessel” after a “martyr” in the Nazi cause.
“unfortunate” is the liberals word they use when they don’t have the guts to criticize another liberal group/demographic group doing something awful that they’d never let conservatives get away with.
Good job on that one!!
Don’t forget Alberto Fujimori.
This guy couldn’t get a fair trial in Tibet.
Ummm, 'teachers' are union members - and the kid in the picture is a product of our school system ... what can you expect?
Nothing unfortunate about it. It readily identifies the wearer as stupid and of little societal worth.
Don’t know who said it but they hit the nail on the head ,of course you have to know who Horst Wessel was.
Wannabet that he has family & friends standing watch quietly & that they are armed to the teeth . All it will take is for somebody to get stupid & before you can say OH SHIT!! You have a major fire fight in the streets in front of his house with dead & dying on both sides.
Exactly right. George Zimmerman was a Catholic altar boy back in Virginia. His father was a judge, and his Peruvian mother worked as a courthouse translator and performed civil marriages in Español.
And then there was the krautisch Alfredo Strößner, who ruled Paraguay from 1954 to 1989.
His is one of those memorable names that never seems to fade away, long after far more notorious or capable villains have been long forgotten.
Shouldn’t it be a picture of Obama when he was 12?
