Zimmerman Brother: George Supported Obama, Wanted to End 'Club of White Men'
http://www.breitbart.com/ ^ | 02/06/2013 | Ben Shapiro

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, he’d 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, George’s 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 president’s club had been a club of white men since our founding, and that there really wasn’t 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 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.

I can appreciate those sentiments. I seriously doubt that many (I won't say NONE), but not very many of our Freeper family truly wish Zimmerman death or major harm; but in the same sense I don't think anyone "owes" Zimmerman anything either.

Stating this in a frame of reference to the irony of Zimmerman's predicement, with respect to his being branded a racist by liberals, when he himself had played the racecard (if, indeed, that is true) would have made your position on this matter clear from the start. Since the claim that Zimmerman supported Obozo came from a second party, we don't really know what Zimmerman's position truly is with respect to Obozo.

Zimmerman has been using race as a weapon and now the left is using it against him.

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.”

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.

Pound sand you loser.

You wouldn’t say anything you posted to my face.

You hapless loser.

When did I get on your radar anyway¿

I can’t recall ever having cross words with you so I’m going to assume your meds aren’t working anymore and you are in so much pain you are lashing out anyone for attention or someone is posting using your account.

Sumpins not right here.

I thought I tempered HT and he was rational and a fun poster.

So zipped through his history to be sure I recalled correctly and sure enough he’s never posted dreck like this that I recalled nor could see in his history.

His account May have been hacked.

Bet he was surprised to be labeled as a “White Hispanic” by the lying media.

If you recall, at first he was just 'White.' It was only later when his background came out that the New York Times invented a brand new category... White-Hispanic.

I’m hoping that the situation has enlightened Zimmerman somewhat.
