    Re: George Zimmerman sues Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren over tweets honouring Trayvon Martin

    "In 2013, Zimmerman's estranged wife called 911 to report that Zimmerman had assaulted her father and was threatening her with a gun. Zimmerman wasn't charged over the incident. In November of that same year, Zimmerman was charged with felony aggravated assault after he allegedly pointed a shotgun at his girlfriend during a domestic violence incident. The case was later dropped. In January 2015, Zimmerman was again charged with domestic assault after allegedly throwing a wine bottle at a different girlfriend. Again the charges were later dropped."

The Zimmerman trial was just one example.
    Yes, because a black man should keep quiet about race relations - he should know his proper place.

    I don't think you meant it that way, but that's an unfair characterization of his 8 years. What I saw was a person VERY reluctant to wade into divisive race issues, and when he did offer what were very careful comments. What then followed was the predictable right wing outrage machine kicked into gear and of course found some way to make him out to be a Malcolm X equivalent, same way they made a big deal about his golf, his vacations, his tan suit, his birth certificate, etc.

    Just for example, you cannot say how he "interfered" with this matter in any way. Quote him if you want and show how his comments interfered with anything. Here's his comments after the trial. Seem pretty measured to me.

    In a law suit? IMO...I seriously doubt anyone is going to win a law suit based in speculation of who is being references when no specific name. It's the person filing the lawsuit that needs to show burden of proof.

    The tweet was generalization:

    “We need to end gun violence and racism. And we need to build a world where all of our children—especially young Black boys—can grow up safe and free.”

    Was it tweeted for political agenda? - possibly so! Especially if neither candidate made tweets on Trayvon's birthday in the past.

    Zimmerman wasn't even named, so I strongly suspect his reaction is simply an attack of guilt-along with a garnish of attention-seeking.

    People like Zimmerman do not hide behind guns... they use them for self defense.



    ROTFLOL... if you support the 1st Ammendment, you’re RW Taliban??? ROTFLOL...




    So much stupidity packed into such a small space... But I will agree with you on this point. If someone was joyful that he was killed because of the color of his skin... then he is a POS racist. You’re accusing people of celebrating his death? I don’t know of anyone who has.


    You talking about Obama now? You consider him a scumbag for politicizing Trayvon?

    Zimmerman had his day in court and was found to have committed no crime.

    Seems you are unfamiliar with the case. Did the Goebbels Media Brain **** your brain too a goo again, because you spouted a whole lotta ridiculousness.

    What next? Hands-up, don’t shoot was real?
    Whatever Taliban, you are the forum joke. Your post is 100% projection.

    More like a good Republican/Conservative. Say anything negative about Trump and he's on twitter lashing out like a 4-year old. That's YOUR ilk there bub.

    And, how, pray tell, is it that it is Democrats reliving anything, when Zimmerman is the guy filing?????? You reactionaries and your silly and pointless inversions!

    George Zimmerman is a loser. Always was, always will be. A loser who had a gun, and who became a hero to bigots. How many times has he been locked up now? Two, at least.

    They may put him on Fox once or twice. Then they’ll remember why they didn’t to begin with. I hope his agent gets his money up front.
    that's why the right wing Taliban loves him, he's a loser, just like them
