Remember the original medialeft narrative about George Zimmerman — large adult white man who calls 9-11 nearly daily, hunts down innocent little black boy and kills him, vigilante style, in cold blood?
Reality has intruded. Zimmerman is Hispanic, or HISpanic if you’re Geraldo Rivera, or a “white Hispanic” if you’re the New York Times; a registered Democrat; smaller than Trayvon Martin; who was not following Martin when the night turned deadly; who did not call 9-11 46 times in a year. Add to all that, this:
“You will recall the incident of the beating of the black homeless man Sherman Ware on December 4, 2010 by the son of a Sanford police officer. The beating sparked outrage in the community but there were very few that stepped up to do anything about it. I would presume the inaction was because of the fact that he was homeless not because he was black. Do you know the individual who stepped up when no one else in the black community would? Do you know who spent tireless hours putting flyers on the cars of persons parked in the churches of the black community? Do you know who waited for the church-goers to get out of church so that he could hand them flyers in an attempt to organize the black community against this horrible miscarriage of justice? Do you know who helped organize the City Hall meeting on January 8, 2011 at Sanford City Hall?? That person was GEORGE ZIMMERMAN.”
That’s from a “concerned Zimmerman family member.”
The medialeft have done their best/worst to turn Trayvon Martin’s sad end into a political tool with which to prize Americans’ rights to be armed and to defend ourselves, from our hands. But the facts just keep getting in the way.
