You gotta love how much unabashed hatred the “Progressives” have against George Zimmerman. Case and Point, Joan Peterson:
Can we talk about George Zimmerman after he was acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin? There was a lot of celebration by those on the right who thought Zimmerman did the right thing and was just acting in “self defense”. He stood his ground against a young black teen walking in the neighborhood doing nothing wrong. So Zimmerman was just exercising his rights, right?
Let’s look at how this “law abiding” citizen has conducted himself since his acquittal.
Well minus the “Assaulting a total stranger” thing, and if we want to get all puritanical, using illegal drugs. Personally I don’t care that Martin was a habitual marijuana user. His “Thug Culture” ties, and love for violence is a bigger concern, but I’m playing by Joan’s rules. Let’s look at the “Crimes” of George Zimmerman:
He got his gun and his permit to carry a loaded gun around in public again even though we all know he shot a young man to death.
He was found by a judge and jury of his peers to have committed no crimes. Yeah, “not guilty” happens to directly translate to NOT GUILTY. I’m not sure which word Joan is having trouble with, the “not”, or the “guilty” one.
He was caught lying about rescuing some people in a likely false car accident in order to generate sympathy for him.
A hair-brained conspiracy theory about as well supported as Israel blowing up the world trade center with a controlled demolition, and the Pentagon being struck by cruise missiles. Joan has spoken multiple times about Zimmerman alleged faking a car accident and subsequent rescue…along with an alleged conspiracy from a cabal of Florida Peace Officers, I wonder if she’s concerned about the giant prison under the Denver Airport
He visited a gun manufacturer.
Oh the horror! I suspect his photo-op Joan links netted him some free guns. If I was Kel-Tec that’s EXACTLY what I would do. Feel however you do about the shooting of Trayvon Martin, this case is a prime example that Kel-Tec firearms, which have a reputation of dubious quality, actually work how they are supposed to. Its hard to argue with a real-world story.
He was caught speeding in Texas with a gun in his glove compartment.
OH THE HORROR!!!! He is licensed to carry, and carrying guns in this fashion is 100% legal. Further he’s had multiple documented death threats against him. So the only “Naughty” thing is exceeding the posted speed limit. Also I think we all are aware of how some small towns enforce their speed limits. Further the officer did not cite Zimmerman for any crimes or violations.
He was caught speeding again today.
Yep, this time he got a ticket. Good, maybe he’ll watch his speed from now on.
He wants the state of Florida to pay for his defense costs.
Given the number of professionals who openly stated that there were no grounds to charge him, as well as the VERY dubious, and ineffectual case the state made against him, yes. Not only is George Zimmerman not-guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin, Florida is GUILTY of filing frivolous charges against Mr. Zimmerman, and they should be punished for that.
So these are the folks exemplifying the Stand Your Ground laws and poster children for the corporate gun lobby. This stupid and dangerous behavior is what our American gun culture is all about. This is the America we have. Is this the America we want or deserve? Raise your hand if you think George Zimmerman has or had any common sense concerning guns or just about anything for that matter.
So two speeding citations and visiting a gun factory is “proof” of all of this?
He is perfectly clueless and narcissistic enough to carry on with his life as if nothing has happened. He took the life of another human being. Exhibiting an ounce of sensitivity, modesty, some understanding of his situation, and a modicum of restraint would serve him better. Instead his “in your face”and arrogant behavior is thumbing his nose at the world. And these are the folks we allow to carry loaded guns around in public. Enough is enough. It’s time for a change.
Oh yeah anybody sane can CLEARLY see that. WOW! Joan like her friends as CSGV simply want Zimmerman MURDERED! And not because he defended his life, but because he has a gun and a carry permit and in the Anti-Gun mind that is a capital offense.
