The Zimmerman "Hispanic so he can't be a racist" noise frame is falling apart.

George Zimmerman Myspace page: Trayvon Martin shooter called Mexicans ‘wanna be thugs’

George Zimmerman, center, stands with a Seminole County deputy and his attorney, Mark O'Mara, during a court hearing …

George Zimmerman's 2005 Myspace page, unearthed by the Miami Herald on Wednesday, suggests Trayvon Martin's shooter had a history of racial profiling.

On Wednesday, Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, confirmed that the page—registered under the username "onlytobekingagain"—was real.

In the "About me" section, Zimmerman—identified as "Joe G."—expressed resentment toward Mexicans living in his former Manassas, Va., community:

I dont miss driving around scared to hit mexicans walkin on the side of the street, soft ass wanna be thugs messin with peoples cars when they aint around (what are you provin, that you can dent a car when no ones watchin) dont make you a man in my book. Workin 96 hours to get a decent pay check, gettin knifes pulled on you by every mexican you run into!

Zimmerman lists his ethnicity on MySpace as "Latino / Hispanic," religion as "Catholic," his height as 5'10" and sexual orientation as "straight." According to his 2005 profile, he's a non-smoker, a drinker, a Libra and would like children "someday." He graduated from Osbourn High School in Manassas in 2001, and had 39 friends on MySpace.

In a post dated Aug. 24, 2005, Zimmerman downplayed an alleged domestic dispute involving his ex-girlfriend: "Im still free! The ex hoe tried her hardest, but the judge saw through it! Big Mike, reppin the Dverse security makin me look a million bucks, broke her down! Thanks to everyone for checkin up on me!"

In another, on Aug. 30, 2005, he boasted about how a pair of felony charges related to an alleged assault on a police officer were dropped. "2 felonies dropped to 1 misdemeanor!!!!!!!!!!!" Zimmerman wrote.

O'Mara initially tried to get Zimmerman—who ignored advice from his former lawyers and launched a website that solicited PayPal donations for his defense—to remove his Web presence out of fear of tainting a potential jury pool. But after learning that the site had raised more than $200,000, O'Mara launched GZLegalCase.com, a site that includes a space for supporters to donate to Zimmerman's defense fund.

"Some have called it unethical, and some have called it brilliant; however, we believe much of the controversy is about the medium, not the message," O'Mara wrote in a blog post on the site. "Using social media in a high-profile lawsuit is new, and relatively unprecedented, but that is only because social media itself is relatively new. We repeat our contention that social media in this day and age cannot be ignored, and it would be, in fact, irresponsible to ignore the robust online conversation."

The Moose-lim loving Hussein Obama does it again.

Obama lifts freeze on $192 million aid package to Palestinian Authority

.timesofisrael.com ^ April 28, 2012, | Times of Israel staff and AP


Funding serves ‘security interests of the US,’ says president.

Congress blocked it after Abbas’s bid for UN recognition of ‘Palestine’

The US Congress froze a $192 million aid package to the Palestinian Authority after its president, Mahmoud Abbas, defied US pressure and sought to attain UN endorsement of Palestinian statehood last September. The presidential waiver means that aid can now be delivered.

The unilateral statehood gambit was strongly opposed by Israel, which said Abbas was seeking to avoid negotiating the necessary compromises and modalities of statehood with Israel. The US indicated it would veto a resolution in the Security Council seeking unilateral recognition of “Palestine,” but the issue has not come to a vote, because the Palestinians were unable to obtain sufficient support in the Security Council. They may yet seek a non-binding endorsement of statehood in the UN General Assembly.

Section 3 of Congress’s Palestinian Accountability Act, which applies to 2012, stipulates that “no funds available to any United States Government department or agency … may be obligated or expended with respect to providing funds to the Palestinian Authority.” Obama has now signed a waiver, however, the White House said Friday, and asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to inform Congress accordingly.

On the same day that waffle-weasels and toadies at 0bama’s State Department kick out a Chinese dissident trying to save the lives of unborn children and hand him over to his tormentors, His Hussainess decides to give child-murdering PLO Muslims some $200 million that congress forbade him to do.

Yes, it's the perfect snapshot of what it means to defend American interests and American values during the 0bama years.

WV Democratic Governor Not Backing Obama

By Fred Lucas May 2, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – West Virginia’s Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said he is not endorsing President Barack Obama for re-election, saying the president “has apparently made it his mission to drive the backbone of West Virginia’s economy, coal and the energy industry, out of business.”

Bill Ayers Tells Oregon Students American Empire is Over


By Brian Koenig – May 2, 2012
brianekoenig.com

Left-wing cook Bill Ayers visited the University of Oregon (of course) last week to brainwash students about the ever-obscure notion that is “social justice,” which is the code phrase for, social-ism. Ayers propagated about the end of America and the launching of a new world. He wasn’t too specific about the latter.

Almost as interesting as Ayers’ speech itself, perhaps, was how the leftist radical was introduced by the university students. One girl, who described herself as a doctoral student at the university, spoke of the privilege they would have with their honored guest, in an “evening [of] radical imagination.”

Two other individuals, a professor and a graduate student, asserted: “Most of us have in one way or another acknowledged the sovereign authority of the U.S. government – or the state of Oregon– in order to be here tonight, either admission to the university, applying for a job, or just paying the parking meter. We have not, however, asked permission of the [Native Americans] whose ancestral home this is, and to fail to acknowledge that this remains disputed territory would in effect be taking sides, [and] reinforce the erasure of indigenous history and indigenous peoples.”

If this was a sane group of individuals, there would be rolls of laughter. But these people most likely subscribe to such propagandic thoughtlessness.

Ayers’ “end of the American Empire” schtick went as follows:

The great challenge for our generation [is] to find a way not just to live differently as individuals, but to find a way to think differently about what work means, to think differently about citizenship means, to think differently about what it means to be a ‘citizen of the world.’ One of the great dangers that we live in right now, is I don‘t think there’s any question, and I don’t think any of you would question, that the American Empire is in decline– that economically, and politically, and in some ways culturally, that we are in decline. And yet, the United States remains the most powerful, weaponized military system the Earth has ever known.

Not everything fits partisan lenses.

The Republican Governor of Nebraska was against the Keystone pipeline.

Blind political partisanship is for people who have surrendered their skepticism and are afraid of speaking truth to power and faux alphas.

<<social justice which is the code phrase for, social-ism>>>

That crap reminds me of the studies where citizens thought the words in the Declaration of Independence were communist.

Social justice is what our founders were looking for.

Even the Pledge of Allegiance says liberty and justicefor all.

Anticipating your next screech, "Under God" was added for McCarthyist political reasons in 1954, BTW. Not much libertyfor people who don't believe in God. I guess that would have included Ayn Rand.

Latinos are some of the most racist people I have ever met - especially to each other.

So if I don't like someone of a different nationality causing problems in my neighborhood/country, I'm a racist?

Am I racist if I don't like extreme liberals?

Am I racist if I don't like idiots?

I think Zimmerman is well within his rights to like, or dislike people of a different nationality, if he believes they are here illegally (can't speak English being the biggest clue) since they are violating the law.

But culturally Zimmerman is Latin. He's of Peruvian ancestry, Spanish-speaking, country.

So calling him a racist for disliking other Latins is like my claiming I don't like Caucasians because their (my) skin is white.

It's just ridiculous!!
