Narrative Interrupted: George Zimmerman a Registered Democrat

Posted by on Mar 27, 2012 at 12:43 pm

I knew there was something suspicious about this Zimmerman character. Heck, if I didn’t know any better I’d say he could pass for Obama’s brother. One thing’s for sure, this rarely-seen  photo just goes to show how old the usual photo we see of Zimmerman is.

The individual at the center of the controversial Trayvon Martin shooting is a registered Democrat.

George Michael Zimmerman, born Oct. 5, 1983, registered as a Democrat in Seminole County, Fla., in August 2002, according to state voter registration documents.

It is unclear whether he voted for President Barack Obama in 2008.

Some in the media have sought to blame Republican politicians and conservative activists for Martin’s death.

“[Republican politicians] reinforce and validate old stereotypes that associate the poor and welfare as criminal behavior with African-Americans and people of color, calling us lazy, undeserving recipients of public assistance. In the case of Trayvon, those festering stereotypes had lethal consequences,” said MSNBC political analyst and Democratic fundraiser Karen Finney.

According to the document, Zimmerman’s race is officially listed as Hispanic. The son of a white father and Peruvian mother, he has been described as a “white Hispanic” in most media reports.

So we assume the media will from here on accurately call Zimmerman a Hispanic Democrat, right?

    While I did get a good laugh out of this one, it’s another example of something that is irrelevant in this case. It doesn’t change my opinion but those who have been pushing the false narratives will ignore this because they figure that worst case scenario, they lose one vote

    White hispanic? At least now the press who are sticklers for consistency will reference Obama as a white African-American. No, that’s a little misleading. Better “white black.”

  3. Richard Bloom on 27/27/12 at 1:05 pm

    If Zimmerman has one white parent and one Hispanic parent and is known as a white Hispanic, does make make Obama a white negro?

  4. Blue Hen on 27/27/12 at 1:12 pm

    Barack second smartest man In. The. World. (next to Biden) Obama: If i had an Hispanic supporter, he would look just like Zimmerman.

  5. beige but tan in summer on 27/27/12 at 1:13 pm

    Maybe Zimmerman is a hair dye using albino hispanic, a freak mutation of a Democrat who worries about crime and packs a gun (you know, other than the bodyguards for liberal anti-gun celebrities .)

    Isn’t it interesting that the “inclusive” party does their best to pigeon-hole people to let everyone know how separate they are from everyone else?

  7. chica on 27/27/12 at 1:20 pm

    Way to go Obama and the Democrats, alienating the white, brown and yellow hispanic voter base!

  8. Diggs on 27/27/12 at 1:21 pm

    You have to understand…it was the white part of Zimmerman that shot Trayvon.
    The hispanic side was just chillin’.

  9. goy but oy vey! on 27/27/12 at 1:32 pm

    Well, the Newspeak color game is being played openly, but this bizarre obsession with labeling the shooter probably has more to do with the name game being played under the table and Progressives’ knee-jerk anti-semitism.

    “Zimmerman” doesn’t just sound German, it sounds Jewish. And the New Black Panthers, Farakhan’s Nation of Islam, and Palestinian supporting Democrats, to include much of the press simply do not like Jews.

    This terrible incident probably would have been reported and reacted to differently had the shooter been named Castro or Guevera.

  10. buzz on 27/27/12 at 1:49 pm

    Cause everyone knows that if it was a white kid wandering thru the neighborhood would have been ignored. Really? THATS the working theory?

  11. P.I. Magus on 27/27/12 at 1:51 pm

    Ridiculous, white hispanic, Democrat hispanic. Zimmerman is simply a man who wasn’t terribly prudent or lucky in worrying about some unidentified person in his community.

    Does it make any sense that a fat guy armed neighborhood watch volunteer who called 911 and told them he was following a suspicious person, what his location was and then gave instructions where the police might find the guy to question him, could not only catch up to the hooded and big physical specimen guy but then choose to jump him, only to not land any blow on him (forensic evidence would tell us) and have his own nose broken and back of his head bashed before he shoots at point-blank range?

  12. Bob Delsol on 27/27/12 at 1:55 pm

    It’s sort of like how they always refer to President Obama as a white black man.

  13. gs on 27/27/12 at 2:07 pm

    1. So what if he’s a Democrat? There’s plenty of room for all under the bus.

    2. I’m surprised not to be hearing Hispanic politicians speak out for Zimmerman, at least to support due process.

  14. Mike on 27/27/12 at 2:10 pm

    Sounds to me as if Zimmerman had a duty to die rather than defend himself against a 6’2″, thieving, school suspended, drug using, self described “no limit nigga”, that tweets about some womans”loose ass p#ssy”. Everybody would have been so much happier then. Except Zimmerman and Jackson, Sharpton, Farakhan and Obama. Just think of the wonderful opportunities Zimmerman has presented the race hustlers. Treyvon sounds just so wonderful. Hopefully my son can become a drug using scumbag too, just like Treyvon. And George?, he would have been better off beaten to death by the angel little boy, Treyvon. The media would sure like George a whole lot better.

    “Half-hispanic-who’s-white-at-heart” sounds more euphonious. Or, “half heil German-American” more sinister.

    Instead, Progressive journalists and Democratic political operatives (redundant? ) along with other professional race baiters compose such hackneyed narrative. They’ve become ruinously boring.

  16. part Irish (emerald Caucasian) on 27/27/12 at 2:21 pm

    Oh oh. White hispanics have just been kicked off of Jesse’s rainbow.

  17. the wolf on 27/27/12 at 2:22 pm

    If he had a Peruvian father and Caucasian mother and his name were Alejandro Reyes, we would never had heard of this case.

  18. tribal rites and wrongs on 27/27/12 at 2:38 pm

    “If he had a Peruvian father and Caucasian mother and his name were Alejandro Reyes, we would never had heard of this case.”

    True, but it wouldn’t hurt had he also taken colonial guilt and liberation theology courses in college.

    It’s less about guns killing people and circumstances than it is about the bullets of community and ideology. Identity trumps mortality.

  19. guillermo on 27/27/12 at 2:51 pm

    Of course it’s unclear whether he voted for Obama in 2008. Last I heard, we had a secret ballot in this country.

  20. just the narrative, ma'am Joe Friday on 27/27/12 at 2:53 pm

    Why aren’t any white hispanic hate groups posting a reward of 100k and putting up Wanted Posters for the capture of anyone who captures Zimmerman?

    Wait, you mean to say there aren’t any white hispanic hate groups trying to incite racial violence and subvert the rule of law? Guess too many community organizers have moved to the White House.

  21. McGehee on 27/27/12 at 3:02 pm

    Well, you know what’ll happen. Somebody will discover Trayvon attended a Tea Party event and the media will do a 180 so quick it’ll reverse the rotation of the earth.

  22. tragedy writ partisan on 27/27/12 at 3:09 pm

    Does this news story mean the NYT and other media outlets will, in the future, identify the race complete with colors, hyphens and percentages, of every person mentioned in the news or just in incidents involving violence or maybe just in incidents involving violence when a suspended student gets shot?

    Or maybe when a favored-minority member gets shot in an election year in which the incumbent is heavily relying on racialism, victimization and distraction to keep him in office?

  23. taking a mouthful out of crime on 27/27/12 at 3:30 pm

    No doubt the Southern Poverty Law Center is adding Neighborhood Watch communities to its Hatewatch list, as we speak.

  24. rabbit on 27/27/12 at 3:40 pm

    Tomorrow’s New York Times headlines:

    “Hispanic Democrats slaughtering blacks!”

    You read it here first.

  25. Nanny Pelosi on 27/27/12 at 3:46 pm

    If only the ACA were in full effect by now, nobody would be dying in the streets.

  26. Jeff on 27/27/12 at 3:55 pm

    “Hispanic” is a culture designation. It does not refer to race. Hispanics can be of any race. For instance, did people forget that white Spaniards conquered Latin America? Countries like Argentina have a majority white population. Sammy Sosa is a black Hispanic from the Dominican Republic. Cameron Diaz is a blonde, blue-eyed white Hispanic woman. Georege Lopez is mestizo, someone of Native America and white (European) ancestry. The majority of African slaves brought the Americas ended up in Latin America (Mexico, Brazil, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Cuba, etc.).

  27. king family on 27/27/12 at 4:06 pm

    Too bad the Zimmerman’s didn’t call their son “Jorge,” but they could still trademark his name for a line of G. Z. “Call 911 and run like hell” tees.

    Unless, of course, it would be in bad taste to merchandise a family member’s tragedy.

  28. John on 27/27/12 at 5:33 pm

    We need to put an end to the left-wing hate crimes? How many more blacks will die at the hands of a gun-slinging registered Democrat before we act?

  29. Hienz 57 Caucasain on 27/27/12 at 6:15 pm

    Does that make President Obama a black Caucasian? Since he had a Black father and a Caucasian mother. Also, Does that mean President Obama fooled everybody into voting another white man into the White House?

  30. facing the complex in complexion on 27/27/12 at 9:56 pm

    Apparently, one can be half-white hispanic (even with non-wan skin, brown eyes and registered as a Democrat) by virtue of one’s parentage, but one is never ever to be considered half-black in America, per Progressive racemongers’ one-drop and Democrat celebrity rule.

  31. BillyHW on 28/28/12 at 12:36 am

    Even Hispanic Democrats have a constitutional right to defend themselves against violent black criminals.
