The world’s most famous "white Hispanic" is part black
Human Events ^ | April 26, 2012 | John Hayward

Posted on 04/26/2012 10:41:46 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

How badly has the media mis-reported the Trayvon Martin shooting? Just look at how rapidly the story is mutating, now that George Zimmerman is up on charges – thanks to a ridiculously over-reaching affadavit, for which some observers, including legendary liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz, think the prosecutor should be up on charges.

Do you remember the story you heard on Day One, when this first became big national news? A racist white man gunned down an innocent little black boy for no reason, just because he was Walking While Black through a swanky gated condo community. The cracker cops of his small Florida town waved this trigger-happy paranoid self-appointed security guard on his merry way.

A million furrowed brows bent over the tape of Zimmerman’s 911 call, seeking to divine racial epithets from his barely-audible muttering. NBC News deliberately edited out the 911 dispatcher asking Zimmerman to describe the ethnicity of the person he was observing, to make him appear race-obsessed. When the media suddenly discovered what Zimmerman actually looks like, his designation was changed, with nearly one hundred percent consistency, to “white Hispanic,” by media outlets which had previously employed that designation three or four times in a century, at most.

We saw a thousand reprints of the most infamously disingenuous photographic comparison in recent memory: a shot of 12-year-old Trayvon beaming happily, next to an equally outdated mug shot of a morose George Zimmerman. It took a long time for the media to cough up more recent photos of either one.

And now we’re finally getting some “deep background” on Earth’s most famous “white Hispanic.” Reuters published a long profile of Zimmerman on Wednesday, and it’s nothing short of astonishing compared to the image pushed by the media over the past month.

Just for starters, it turns out this allegedly gun-happy nutball got his concealed weapons permit on the advice of an animal control officer, because a pit bull was menacing him and his wife. He was asked to begin neighborhood watch patrols by his community, which a black resident – who asked not to be indentified, because she fears retaliation – testified was being robbed by young black men.

And Zimmerman was raised in a “racially-integrated household,” with a family tree that included an “Afro-Peruvian great-grandfather.” His grandmother baby-sat for “two African-American girls who ate their meals at the Zimmerman house and went back and forth to school each day with the Zimmerman children.”

George Zimmerman was a Catholic altar boy, volunteered to work in a rectory, helped out at school by translating English to Spanish for immigrant parents, worked three jobs to buy his first car, and opened his own Allstate insurance office… with a black partner.

Here’s how Reuters describes that posh “gated community” where Zimmerman supposedly hassled Trayvon Martin for no good reason:

By the summer of 2011, Twin Lakes was experiencing a rash of burglaries and break-ins. Previously a family-friendly, first-time homeowner community, it was devastated by the recession that hit the Florida housing market, and transient renters began to occupy some of the 263 town houses in the complex. Vandalism and occasional drug activity were reported, and home values plunged. One resident who bought his home in 2006 for $250,000 said it was worth $80,000 today.

At least eight burglaries were reported within Twin Lakes in the 14 months prior to the Trayvon Martin shooting, according to the Sanford Police Department. Yet in a series of interviews, Twin Lakes residents said dozens of reports of attempted break-ins and would-be burglars casing homes had created an atmosphere of growing fear in the neighborhood.

In several of the incidents, witnesses identified the suspects to police as young black men. Twin Lakes is about 50 percent white, with an African-American and Hispanic population of about 20 percent each, roughly similar to the surrounding city of Sanford, according to U.S. Census data.

One of the incidents in question involved a black teenager stealing Zimmerman’s bicycle off his front porch. In another, two black men broke into an occupied house, trapping a woman and her infant son upstairs, whispering frantically to 911 dispatchers. Zimmerman contacted her after the incident, put a stronger lock on her sliding glass door, and told her to contact him or his wife, if she ever felt unsafe again.

Are you getting the picture? Do you see just how badly this story has been mis-reported? Much of this information was readily available to any media organization that cared to request it. I can recall allusions to some of it from early reports in the Florida press, before the story went national, but those details just plain dropped out of the story. Instead, we were told Zimmerman was a hysteric who melted 911 lines with bogus calls.

Even the clear description of his injuries from the police record was called into question. How far do you recall plunging into Trayvon hysteria before you were even aware that Zimmerman was physically assaulted during the encounter? How much further did we get before the media grudgingly admitted this was an undisputed fact?

None of this background information absolves Zimmerman of responsibility for his actions, but it makes second-degree murder tough to prove… and the prosecution must surely have known most of it when their affidavit was written. Remember, the affidavit expressly states that Zimmerman “profiled” Martin, implies that Zimmerman merely “felt” people had “committed and gotten away with break-ins in his neighborhood,” and asserted – despite considerable evidence to the contrary – that Zimmerman wantonly disregarded the 911 dispatcher’s instructions to stop following Martin.

Why did the media push a story so completely at variance with the picture Reuters paints of Zimmerman in this extensive profile? My guess is a combination of the hunger for sensationalism, a political agenda, and pure laziness. There was a time when such a major story would have called for more shoe leather, and less reliance upon press releases from interested parties.

Zimm was not arrested, because he had no reason to be arrested......not until this monterous MSM “feeding frenzy” took over. If you look at Zimmerman’s background in totality, and recent events in Trayvon’s life, you get polar opposites. One gone good...(Zimmerman)one gone bad(Trayvon)

So Zimmerman is of ‘mixed-race’.

Then if Obama had a son, he’d look more like Zimmerman than Travon ?

I'm tired of mainstream news media bias being attributed to "laziness" or the want to sell papers. If either of these were true they wouldn't self censor as they do when the roles are reversed.

Their stories are always polarized one way - any fool can see that.

They are purely politically motivated.

Can a American VOLUNTEER to be on the jury that sits on the trial called ZIMMERMAN vs The American Media?
I’d pay my own way to the courthouse, and donate the daily jury “stipend” to the charity of Mr. Zimmerman’s choice.

In the earliest of the reports that I read about the Martin/Zimmerman case there was mention of black in Zimmerman’s bloodline, but then THAT information disappeared, and was replaced with the “White Hispanic” identification.

I thought that rather strange, but life went on.

Under the one-drop rule, George is fully black, and every bit as black as Martin. I wonder if this means that the whole incident wasn’t the trayvesty of justice that some black political figures are claiming it to be.

Yep


0bama, Holder and their 'people' can't help themselves. They are in fact victims. You say "WHAT?" and I say 'yes indeed, they are victims', they are victims of the institutional teachings of the past 50+ years that proclaimed that ALL blacks and other minorities are VICTIMS, victims of who?

Victims of YOU and ME, and every Whitey out there. No matter what steps a predominantly white establishment took to secure and guarantee equal civil rights for ALL members of society, it was never enough. Never enough for the Malcom X's, never enough for the NAACP, never enough for the Urban League, and certainly not enough for the liberal media who led with their bleeding hearts, we as a society were taught that inside every white person, there was a Klansman hiding and eager to jump out, that a railroad tie was never 'just' a railroad tie, it was part of a creosote soaked cross waiting to be hoisted on the lawn of a black church, or the yard of a black family, didn't you get the memo? WE WHITE FOLK ARE ALL RACISTS!

And the greatest lie foisted over these past 50+ years is the mythology that the Democrat Party is somehow the savior of blacks and all minorities when THEY were the ones who started the Klan in the first place, THEY were the ones who were turning fire hoses and police dogs on civil rights marchers in Alabama and elsewhere across the South, THEY were the ones standing in the school house doors refusing to admit black students that sought an equal education with white students, THEY were the ones who filibustered the Civil Rights Act, THEY were the ones who embraced a former Klansman (Robert Byrd of WV) and turned him into a political icon, and of course the Democrats had the audacity and sheer gall to accuse Republicans of being biased towards blacks, women and other minorities.

So when 0bama, Holder et al, push their persistent lies, it is because they themselves have been brainwashed into believing the WORST about America, they look not for our achievements in securing equal rights and civil liberties for all of our citizens, they always look for exceptions they can exploit, and divide us further. Indeed, 0bama and Holder and their crew continue to seek to curtail and limit our freedoms, to muzzle our free speech, to disarm us if at all possible, to impose a permanent and never ending tyranny upon a once free people.

Our ancestors rose up against British tyranny for far fewer reasons that what face us today. But there will be a breaking point, I firmly believe this.

I doubt it. LA's Mayor Tom Bradley retired rather than run for (and lose) re-election after the LA riots. NYC's Mayor David Dinkins lost his re-election bid after the Crown Heights riots. Black political figures are expected to keep the racial peace. Race riots do not count in their favor.

I think you speak to a core issue about Obama and his administration. Conservatives fall into two general groups regarding this:

1. Obama is a complete incompetent and this whole administration is gonna end very, very badly, possibly taking the US down with it.
2. Obama is a master chess player, thinking a hundred moves ahead and all this stuff fits into his master plan.

I’m in group number one. I will add that if it turns out to be number two it means he is the Beast spoken of in Revelation, and God will get directly involved.

But I am in the first group until evidence convinces me otherwise.

Exactly.

Conservatives mistakenly perceive the MSM as the “Propaganda Wing” of the Democratic Party.

No!

America’s MSM employs the most creative, most passionate, and most highly paid Hard Left political activists in the world.

This is an excellent article -- except for this:

" and asserted – despite considerable evidence to the contrary – that Zimmerman wantonly disregarded the 911 dispatcher’s instructions to stop following Martin."

The dispatcher gave no "instructions". He simply informed Zimmerman that "we don't need you to do that". Instructions are in the form of an imperative sentence; the dispatcher used a declarative sentence, which simply informed Zimmerman of what the dispatcher didn't need. Apparently, police and 911 dispatchers need refresher courses in clear communication. A 911 call is no place for polite ambiguities.

One has to understand the post-modern worldview that is promulgated by universities and colleges to their sociology, journalism, and liberal arts students. Essentially, post-modernism argues that there is no enduring truth, that objective reality is merely the product of a social construct, and that the narrative is far more relevant the facts.

Some of the facts surrounding the Zimmerman shooting facilitate the narrative that an evil racist shot a innocent black youth. Many other facts strongly argue that this narrative is incorrect. But post-modern journalists and social critics will continue to advance their narrative because, as the post-modern philosopher Michel Foucault put it, “It is meaningless to speak in the name of — or against — Reason, Truth, or Knowledge.” They will only abandon their narrative when they determine that it no longer suits their ends.

And, what are their ends? Their ends vary somewhat, but these post-modern elites all agree that they should be the leaders and opinion-shapers of a collectivist society (a sort of vanguard of the proletariat so to speak) and that individualism is abhorrent.

Re: “We are all African.”

I've thought about using that idea as a political shock tactic, aimed specifically at Obama.....

“Mr. President, the current scientific consensus claims that you are a descendant of African apes. Do you agree with that consensus?”

What a pretzel dance he would have to do on that question!

First, he'd have to dance around the Evolution vs. Creation debate, and what his religious beliefs are.

Next, he'd have to take on the “scientific consensus” issue, which is the heart and soul of so much of the Democrat agenda like Global Warming, etc.

Then, Obama, or his surrogates, would hysterically point out that the only reason this question was asked is because “Obama is Black.”

That's the perfect opening for the Political Knock Out punch.....

“You're Black, Mr. President? I don't understand. I thought your mother was white.”

Marx...the history of all hitherto societies, is the existence of class struggles”

Probably the dumbest, most thoughtless quote in world history.

In America, all lower middle class folk, wanted to become middle class folk, so they worked their butts off to make it to the middle class. Those who made it to the middle class, aspired to become even better off, to make life better for their families, and send their kids to college, so they would do even better than those before them.

Then, many middle class folk, decided to open their own businesses, and undertook all the perils & uncertainties associated with same. Some failed, (God bless em for trying) some became wealthy, and provided good paying jobs to the middle class.

Now we have the “Ruling Class” witnessed by RINOS with huge paychecks, and franking rights. They don’t care a nicklesworth about us, and I suspect they look upon us with distain.....the Trent Lotts...the McConnells, and the crybaby running the House...

My family started out poor....yes, under the poverty rate in 1958. I remember when a box of Sugar Pops, was a cause celebre...My dad was a decorated WW2 Navy Corpsman...my parents got advanced degrees, and worked their way up to upper middle class, by the time I was in high school. That to me, is the American Dream.

Now, we are supposed to hang our heads, and decry all that we have, and all that we believe in. NOT this guy. I don’t know how we can stop this onslaught of Marxism, but I know we can, and I know we must.

Make no mistake folks...we have leftist, abortionist SCUM running this country. We need a REVOLUTION to stop it. The landed gentry in D.C. will do nothing to help us. We are on our own. Where do we go from here? We don’t have much time to fix things.

Not once but twice earlier in the conversation the dispatcher told Z to keep an eye of TM. How could he keep an eye on him if he didn't follow him?

If she didn't want Zimmerman to follow she should not have told him to keep an eye on Martin.

It's the dispatcher's fault!!!!.../sarc

What race is the dispatcher? Now that we know the Z is black, if she's white it's most certainly is her fault. ///sarc

According to published reports, President Barak Obama is just 6.25% African Negro.

With a 1/2-African Negro great-grandfather, if there were no other black bloodlines in Zimmerman’s parentage, then Zimmerman is 6.25% African Negro, as well.

That means George Zimmerman is EVERY BIT AS BLACK AS OBAMA!

Maybe Zimmerman should be saying “If I had a son, he might look like Treyvon Martin.”

If the Marxists Holder and Obama have their way, and riots ensue this summer, we have to be fully prepared, and I think y'all know precisely what I mean. It could turn into a form of our Revolution or Rebellion.

I don't mean to sound trite, but I've put my trust in Him, in our patriot FReepers here, knowing that we will stand together and come up with our own plan, despite the miles that separate us.

Couldn’t eat Sugarpops after taking a tour of the factory. They gave boxes away free....So we ate, and ate some more...Have a tendancy to get car sick and the sugarpops all landed between the seats of the ol Hudson.

We might have a soda once or twice a year. Mom made iced coffee from morning left over and our cows mild. Pretty well grew what we ate.

Almost became a vegetarian when my calves “Hamburger” and “T-Bone” were taken to market.

Still have a large garden, orchard, berry patches. Still can some but mostly freeze....easier and tastes better. But the kids, want store bought. UGH! My son got on a organic kick a year or so ago. He gave me all the reasons why I should BUY organic.... AAAAAAAAARRRRGH.....Asked him what in the H377 did he think I’d been growing for the past thirty years.....It’s called living off the land, Originated by Conservatives who farm. Liberals think they invented it when they’ve just now figured it out.

Instructions are in the form of an imperative sentence; the dispatcher used a declarative sentence, which simply informed Zimmerman of what the dispatcher didn't need. Apparently, police and 911 dispatchers need refresher courses in clear communication. A 911 call is no place for polite ambiguities.

It doesn't even matter. A police dispatcher cannot order a free American around anyway. Zimmerman could choose to take the advice of the dispatcher or not, with no legal ramifications either way.
