Zimmerman Brother: George Supported Obama, Wanted to End 'Club of White Men'
Breitbart ^ | 2/6/12 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 02/06/2013 7:33:24 PM PST by Impala64ssa

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 a 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 a way from the Rose Garden.”

Or, George’s brother is even dumber than he is.

Apparently, George and his family found out that elections have consequences. When you vote for LIARS, you may be judged by LIARS.

How/where do you register as a Hispanic?

On the census?

Trayvon? Who knows. Probably picked at random from "The Book of Weird Made-up Names for Black Kids."

Right up there with Anfernee and Le-a (pronounced Ladasha) ... go figure?

Why I’d imagined this mulatto hispanic bigot Zimmerman would be supporting that great hispanic patriot Marco Rubio.

Hispanics don’t really speak up unless their Latino *community activists* get them all riled up, and of course we know that those community activists only work for the interests of the Democrats. Most Hispanic protesters are just rent-a-mob.
