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.

“He registered as a Hispanic.”
What the heck does that mean?
Not anymore! I love it when libtards destroy their own.
This guy is totally brilliant, but the best tactics against Piers Morgan would feature bluster and insults —not even one scintilla of good manners.
He made amazing points, but I think they were lost on low-information voters, sadly a demographic that appears on an endless upswing.
He’s going to need to somewhat overcome his good upbringing —I can’t believe I’m saying this.
Hows that club working out for you now George?
He’s still being railroaded, so, yes.
Jackson and Sharpton and their acolytes were shaking people down for decades before Obama was elected.
Condemned without trial by those he thought his allies and supported by those he apparently despised? I feel even more sorry for him now.
I take it to mean that he checked that box on the census form. FWIW, the reality is that "Hispanic" is less of a race than "Italian" or "German." There are more Argentines of Italian origin than of Spanish origin although they can claim "Hispanic" racial preference.
I feel sorry for anyone unjustly accused. I don't see where his politics has anything to do with that, unless you think the right to legitimate self-defense should be limited based on political affiliation.
Who knows? Should he be acquitted, perhaps he'll become a force for good instead of for Baraq.
We need George Zimmerman to prevail in court and for that reason we need to support him, exactly as WE WOULD SUPPORT YOU IF YOU WERE ON TRIAL.
Hell yes because it doesn't matter if he is black, white, brown, yellow, green, liberal, conservative, or communist, he is an American and has a constitutional right to protect himself from violent attack.
Bet he was surprised to be labeled as a “White Hispanic” by the lying media.
I still feel sorry for him. He got screwed by the left, from Obama on down.
What is that saying? A conservative is a liberal who has been mugged.....something like that.
Anyone who knows the quote, could you please state it? Thanks.
I put a little in the hat for George every month, just like I do for Free Republic. It isn’t much but it’s bound to help.
“ALL THAT IS NECESSARY FOR EVIL TO PREVAIL IS THAT GOOD MEN DO NOTHING”!
Yes, and if he really supported the Telepromter-in-Chief then he is catching his own medicine. I hope he gets off but then we should tar and feather him for supporting an anti-American in the White House.
“we need to support him, exactly as WE WOULD SUPPORT YOU IF YOU WERE ON TRIAL”
Do you think HE would support this old white guy?
After reading this thread, THIS old white guy would be reluctant to support you.
I haven’t villified anyone. I hope justice prevails (I hope he gets off). But I do enjoy watching him squirm.
“THIS old white guy would be reluctant to support you.”
Why? Because I asked if you feel sorry for him?
Though I sympathize with Zimmerman’s current situation, I can only do a little Snoopy dance every time a Lib gets bit in the a$$ by their own bigotry and hate.
We obviously can't count on you.
Thank you! That’s my point!
It's no consolation whatsoever, but this episode has given George Zimmerman a first-hand look at the unbelievably vast and uncompromising network of fascists preaching diversity uber alles.
Seriously, take a step outside of yourself and read your own words. You ask if people still feel sorry for Zimmerman. Then you ask the question of whether he would support you as a white man. And, to top it off, after complaining about being accused of vilifying him, you make the statement that you are enjoying his pain. I find this to be a pathetic and underhanded attempt to vilify a man who was defending his own life.
“We obviously can’t count on you.”
You obviously misunderstand me.
The Revolution always eats its own.
I’m just enjoying watching him reap what he sows.
:: 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 ::
I have A DREAM!, that one day..a man will be judged by the content of his character and NOT by the color of his skin.
I have A DREAM!
If this is true, then George is a committed and vile racist.
If Zimmerman supported Obama again in 2012, that boy is way too stupid to be running loose.
Zimmerman may be an idiot, but one very important fact remains, he is an innocent man being subjected to a public and political lynching.
Yes I do! I don't care what race, sex, sexual orientation or political affiliation you subscribe to, if you're being unjustly persecuted for a crime you didn't commit, I support you 100%!
And further more, I find your question offensive and contradictory to everything this site is supposed to represent........
I guess I'm "White Erse". Very, very, very white.
So, I guess I'm "White/White".
I'm told that I glow in darkness like a lightning bug! One generation away from red hair and freckles.
Its all good. That "White Hispanic" was so ridiculous.
I'd feel sorry for anyone who is being put through this wringer after exercising his fully legal right to defend himself. Hopefully it's not lost on George that the NBPP crowd offered money for his scalp, while a white guy is working to save his butt.
None of this comes as a surprise, IMO.
Now I’m not interested in his pleas.
Funny, i was listening to his attorney begging for money and how Geoerge is near desperate and destitute with only $200 left in his legal defense fund.
Well, I’ll admit he’s pretty resourceful and creative.
“Ave Good Day...”
I would support you "old white guy"....!
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.
