Zimmerman’s Brother Goes After Trayvon On CNN: ‘What Makes People Angry Enough To Attack The Way He Did?’

July 14, 2013
(Evan McMurry) Don Lemon interviewed George Zimmerman’s brother Robert Zimmerman on Sunday afternoon, to follow up on Robert’s stated desire to start a dialogue about race. Robert Zimmerman responded by wondering if Trayvon Martin had been buying guns or growing pot, and accusing his brother’s critics of being unable to answer tough questions about race themselves.
“Robert, you said you want to start some sort of dialogue,” Lemon said. “Much has been made about race in this particular case. You, your brother, your family, you have a unique opportunity in this country to address that. What would you like to see happen when it comes to race, to healing the divide, and do you plan to do anything about, and will you ask your brother to do anything about that?”

“I will ask George first to heal, and I will see to it that my life’s work is bringing people together, but not driving people apart,” Zimmerman responded, noting that his family had been “on the receiving end” of a good deal of hatred in the past sixteen months.

So Trayvon thought Zimmerman was gay? JEANTEL: Yes. Definitely. After I say, “Might be a rapist.” For every boys or every man, every who’s not that kinda way, see a grown man following them, would they be creep out? So you gotta take as a parent. You tell a child, “You see a grown person follow it you, run away,” and all that.


DOJ Helped Organize/Pay For 2012 Anti-George Zimmerman Protests

July 10, 2013
Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request asking for documents from a little know Department of Justice unit, the Community Relations Service (CRS), and discovered the CRS was deployed to Sanford Florida to organize and manage rallies and protests against George Zimmerman.
According to the documents:

  • March 25 – 27, 2012, CRS spent $674.14 upon being “deployed to Sanford, FL, to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.”
  • March 25 – 28, 2012, CRS spent $1,142.84 “in Sanford, FL to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.
  • March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent $892.55 in Sanford, FL “to provide support for protest deployment in Florida.”

  • On April 15, 2012, during the height of the protests, theOrlando Sentinel reported, “They [the CRS] helped set up a meeting between the local NAACP and elected officials that led to the temporary resignation of police Chief Bill Lee according to Turner Clayton, Seminole County chapter president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.” The paper quoted the Rev. Valarie Houston, pastor of Allen Chapel AME Church, a focal point for protestors, as saying “They were there for us,” after a March 20 meeting with CRS agents.

George Zimmerman to sue NBC over editing of his 911 tape – NYPOST.com

(NYPost) Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman is suing NBC over the network’s botched editing of his 911 tape, Page Six can exclusively reveal.
We hear Zimmerman’s attorneys are about to file a complaint against NBC and its top executives, naming news president Steve Capus and correspondent Ron Allen, who was the reporter on the scene for the broadcast on “Today” on March 27. He also remained the reporter for the story on “NBC Nightly News.”
A source tells us, “The suit will be filed imminently against NBC and its news executives. The network’s legal department has put everybody in the news department involved with this incident on notice, telling them not to comment.”

NBC launched an internal probe after producers misleadingly edited the 911 call placed by Zimmerman just before he shot the unarmed Florida teenager. The edit made it appear that Zimmerman had immediately told police that Martin was black, when the full tape reveals the neighborhood watch captain only did so when responding to a question posed by a dispatcher. Combined sections from two different parts of the tape gave the false impression that Zimmerman had said: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good or on drugs or something. He’s got his hand in his waistband. And he’s a black male.”
NBC News brass reportedly interviewed more than half a dozen staffers during its internal investigation, and at least three employees were let go. They determined that a “seasoned” producer was to blame for the clip and news executives did not know the 911 call had been misleadingly edited until reports about it surfaced days later.
An unidentified NBC executive previously told Reuters the “Today” show’s editorial control policies missed the selective editing of the call. It is not known if any other “Today” execs or anchors will be named in the suit.
NBC declined to comment last night. Zimmerman’s lawyer Mark O’Mara said he was unable to get us a comment before deadline.


NBC Fires a Producer Who Was Responsible for Gross Mis-Editing of the George Zimmerman 911 Tape

April 7, 2012

(Volokh)
According to The New York Times (thanks to InstaPundit for the pointer),

NBC News has fired a producer who was involved in the production of a misleading segment about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida.

The Today show segment had Zimmerman saying,

This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

Here’s what appears to be the actual 911 transcript:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.
Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.

Now that is a HUGE difference. Do you think you will have an apology from Obama or does Obama think his “SON” would be on drugs all the time?


Charging someone else with privilege is itself a privileged status

Note that Zimmerman’s gun “was placed into evidence,” not returned to him as so many rumors had it. Note that Trayvon Martin’s weight is listed as 160 pounds, not the 140 pounds that you read all over, as in this lead paragraph from a Daily Beast story today. His height is listed as 6 feet; George Zimmerman is listed at 5 feet 9 inches, but no weight is given. Note the notation that the scene was secured with crime scene tape, and compare that to Jesse Jackson’s complaint, “They didn’t even bother to put yellow tape around the murder scene when he died, That’s how much the police did to find out what happened to this young boy.”

(Sultan Knish)…(Obama is) playing class warfare games with business titans when they aren’t hitting them up for cash… (The only way to beat him is to) come equipped with the same weapon with which Perseus slew the Gordon Medusa. A mirror. If you listen to NPR, you might think that race relations in America are the shame of the world. The truth is that on a global scale, we have done far better than most of the world has. If you doubt that, look at Sri Lanka or Rwanda… two-toned racialism made it easy to erase complexity. It avoided asking why Northern Catholic and Jewish immigrants who had arrived right before and during the Civil War and made a disproportionate contribution to the Union armies should be held accountable for a legacy that they had no hand in making. Instead the burden of coping with civil rights troubles fell disproportionately on their heads. The Irish, Italians and Jews, not to mention many others, were to be held accountable on account of the color of their skin. (MORE)

(Jonah Goldberg: Trayvon Martin and the race card – LA Times) Martin’s tragic death is a statistical outlier. More whites are killed by blacks than blacks killed by whites (or “white Hispanics”). And far, far more blacks are killed by other blacks. Indeed, if we’re going to use the prism of race to analyze murder rates, then the real epidemic is that of black murderers. Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute notes that recent data show black males age 14 to 24 commit homicides at a rate nearly 10 times higher than that of young white and Latino males combined.
And yet, New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow says “the burden of black boys in America” is fear of racist assaults. MSNBC has handed over vast swaths of airtime to its in-house huckster, Sharpton.

Does Obama Imagine Bob and Nancy Strait as His Parents?

March 26, 2012
Bob and Nancy Strait

I had no Idea what Strait you were talking about!

Tyrone Dale David Woodfork

Here’s a story you won’t hear about in the mainstream media. (Seraphic H/T Daniel Greenfield)Bob Strait, 90 a veteran of the 101st Airborne, was married to his wife Nancy, 85, for 65 years. A few days ago, their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma was invaded by Tyrone Dale David Woodfork, 20, a black thug armed with a BB gun. Tyrone beat the aged couple and raped Nancy to death.Our post-racial President has made no statement about this outrage.And except for the local media in Oklahoma, no one has noticed.
Instead, all the self-righteous attention is on black victim Trayvon Martin, and the demonized George Zimmerman, described by the NY Times as a “white Hispanic” a racial classification of which I have never heard, but leave it to liberals to out-Nazi the Nuremberg Laws.
George Zimmerman will be charged with a hate crime. Again, leave it to liberals to invent a victim hierarchy based on race. (MORE)


Witness Speaks: #Racist #TrayvonMartin Attacked #Zimmerman?

March 25, 2012

(Breitbart) So we now know Zimmerman had black friends. Speculation Zimmerman was racist against blacks; Why isn’t there speculation that Trayvon Martin was racist against Hispanics?Works both ways
