Skip to comments.Zimmerman Brother: George Supported Obama, Wanted to End 'Club of White Men'
Posted on 02/06/2013 12:21:35 PM PST by BO Stinkss
Media coverage of the George Zimmerman shooting of Trayvon Martin has been skewed for months by wild charges of racism against George. NBC News infamously edited tape of Zimmerman to make it appear that he thought Martin was suspicious thanks to his race; CNN reported that Zimmerman had used a racial slur during his 911 call. That thematic stretched all the way to the White House, with President Obama suggesting that Zimmerman was acting out of racism, since as Obama put it, If I had a son, hed look like Trayvon. The truth is far different. Not only was Zimmerman not a racist he had a black business partner, has Afro-Peruvian roots, and helped out underprivileged black kids in his neighborhood he also was a supporter of the very president who would later slander him by innuendo. As Robert, Georges brother, told me, George is a registered Democrat. He registered as a Hispanic. He kind of did some internal family campaigning for Obama. George supported Obama, Robert explained, because He was like many young people who thought that the presidents club had been a club of white men since our founding, and that there really wasnt a good reason for that, except that the right man for the job who happened to be black had not come along, and that electing a man who happened to be biracial or multiracial like we were, would reflect not just a situation that we found ourselves in ethnically in our family, but the reality of where America had come, which is that we are melting pot of cultures and we are a diverse society. Ironically, Robert added, the man who he campaigned for within his family was the same man seemingly indicting him in way from the Rose Garden years later.

I have no idea what Mr. Zimmerman would do but I would hope he gives you the support you feel he is not deserving of simply because of his political choices.
In fact,on second thought, given his background in community service and with kids, I suspect he would..........
In fact, I know three Argentines who have only their birth and language in common with their nationality.
All three are of Italian ancestory, Polish and Eastern bloc countries.
Yes. No matter how much I might despise him, I’d never want to see an innocent man go to jail.
That said, I don’t despise him. He’s just a bit silly, that’s all.
He didn't see the mountain but left a very good moral.
Wouldn't it be awesome to remember these words every morning and take that sentiment into their daily lives.
"Judge me by the people who surround me." - Obama 2008
0bama the Uniter!
Obama, during his private pep talk to Democrats, ... asked, Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit Democratic voters and it will encourage the extremists. - Nov. 7, 2009
Obama uses knife/gun fight quote to fight the GOP - "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun, because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl." (video)
Obama Tells GOP "Get In Back" (video)
A President who uses his bully pulpit to mock and taunt Americans, who incites his followers to be confrontational, creates an atmosphere of incivility and violence.
Politics before innocence, yea, that's the key to a successful civilization.......
Strangely enough, you remind me of the "Governor" in the "Walking Dead" series........
FWIW, I'm still convinced you're from Stormfront.......
I know you guys are angry with me be let me try to explain my position.
First, let me say again - I hope he gets off (he is innocent)
Ever heard the phrase
“hoist by one’s own petard”? It means:
To be hurt, or destroyed by one’s own plot or device, of one’s own doing which one intended for another; to be “blown up by one’s own bomb”.
Zimmerman has been using race as a weapon and now the left is using it against him.
Can’t you see the irony?
Goes around, comes around.
He played his racist game and made an uninformed choice that was dumber than betting on who would win the Super Bowl based on the color of the uniforms.
I get what you are saying and I thought about my response before posting.
I have been called every name under the sun loudly and with wind gusts up to 180 miles an hour over the last several years.
I don’t owe Zimmerman anything more than “Good Luck”.
We do have a public defender social net.
I am done with idiots who think they were/are my moral superiors for their support of Barack, with my lack of support being rooted in racism.
Sohhhh, now that I know George was trying to prove himself worthy to his spiritual sorcerers I wish him best of luck.
No he hasn't, show me where? You haven't heard a thing out of Zimmerman, only the propagandist crap that's being spewed by the MSM....and you're falling head over heels for it......
Shame on you!
This is what is called, “being hoisted on one’s own petard.”
In fact, it was your MSM that tried to portray him as a “white/hispanic” When was the last time you ever heard that term before????
You're full of crap as usual Vendome. Show us where he played the game, give us some Zimmerman quotes rather than MSM comments and innuendos.........
Nice try, you convicted Zimmerman since the story first broke and are as worthless as the MSM that's calling for his head.
Nope. I never felt sorry for him since I learned he was a Democrat.That being said, he is in trouble not for what he did but who he did it to.Also heis being railroaded. The lynch mob did not know, nor care that he was a Democrat. I will close by saying that at least one and possibly more individuals owe George zimmerman a Thank you because he saved at least one and possibly more innocent lives.
Hey FO you POS.
You are advancing a lie about me with zero proof.
I have to take this crap from Freepers too?
Whoever told you it was okay to be yourself gave you the worst advice.
Yuh Jack Wagon!
