Elderly Couple Flees Home After Obama Fundraiser Spike Lee Tweets Address: “This is really scary, and I’m concerned for my family”

Whatever legal recourse this elderly couple has they should go all out to teach that racist punk Spike Lee a very expensive lesson.

A school-cafeteria lunch lady and her husband have received hate mail, unwanted visits from reporters and fearful inquiries from neighbors — all because their Sanford-area address is being disseminated on Twitter as belonging to Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman, her son said late Tuesday.

The woman, 70, who has a heart condition, and her husband, 72, have temporarily moved to a hotel to avoid the spotlight and possible danger, said son Chip Humble of Longwood.

The woman has another son named William George Zimmerman who lived with her in 1995 and still lives in Central Florida. He is no relation to George Zimmerman, 28, who killed 17-year-old Trayvon Feb. 26, sparking national outrage and international interest.

William Zimmerman isn’t sure how his mother and stepfather’s address became public. He said he used it to register a car, get a drivers license and vote when he lived there briefly after college.

“This is really scary, and I’m concerned for my family,” Zimmerman told the Orlando Sentinel Tuesday night. “It’s scary because there are people who aren’t mentally right and will take this information and run with it.”

Zimmerman traced the tweets — which he said have been retweeted by actor-director Spike Lee — to a man in California. Zimmerman has implored the man to stop and said he received this response, “Black power all day. No justice, no peace” and an obscenity.

Imagine if we actually had a functioning Justice Department. Thugs like Lee might be held to account.

Oh, and don’t forget how tight he is with Obama, who curiously is silent after such goon-like behavior by one of his tops fundraisers.

    Sound like a great civil suit waiting to happen. Mr. Lee might like to learn that actions have consequences.

    You called spike a punk?? Racist.

    Doesn’t this fall under the “fire in a crowded theater” rule? Inciting violence, inciting a mob, conspiracy to commit assault, intimidation, harassment… I’m no lawyer, but someone should be getting paid.

    I peripherally knew Spike Lee from NYU film school back in the late 70’s early 80’s. He has not mellowed. If anything has devolved into even more of blinkered, philistine, pig-ignorant bigot and Jew-hater.

    He should be taken to court and prosecuted for every dime of his ill-gotten money; money from films that are in the finest tradition of Leni Riefenstahl and Fritz Hippler.

    I hope this couple sic the most merciless, savage pit-lawyers on them available. There is no forgiving Spike Lee, and I hope they sue him until he longs for the sweet embrace of black death.

    I love this from the Fox news site:
    “When William Zimmerman pleaded with the man who tweeted the address, the man responded, “Black power all day. No justice, no peace” along with an obscenity.”
    No mention of Spike Lee at all!
    So that’s two people the the Zimmermans (both the right ones and the wrong ones!) should sue along with anybody who re-tweeted it!
    That’s the only thing that hurts liberals. When they have to pay up. Going to jail is a badge of honor!
    Sue them in civil court!

    dear leader: “the grandparents acted stupidly. They thought that I represented all Americans.”
