Registered Dem Killed Trayvon


Meet registered Democrat and self-identified Hispanic American, George Zimmerman

BY: - March 27, 2012 12:28 pm

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.


Following the Feb. 26 fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in a Sanford, Fla. gated community, Zimmerman has been the target of widespread outrage.


Zimmerman shot and killed Martin following a physical confrontation, but has yet to be charged with a crime. He says he acted in self-defense, a claim supported by the Sanford, Fla., Police Department investigating the case.


Protesters and activists led by professional racial justice advocates Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have suggested Martin’s killing was racially motivated, and have called for Zimmerman’s arrest.


“We want George Zimmerman in court with handcuffs behind his back,” Sharpton said last week.


Martin’s mother, Sabrina Fulton, has alleged that Zimmerman killed her son “because of the color of his skin.”


Craig Sonner, the attorney representing Zimmerman, has denied such allegations, noting that his client has acted as a mentor to a black single mother and her two children, and had helped them raise money for their all-black church.


For Zimmerman’s safety, the Free Beacon has redacted his address from the registration document. The New Black Panther Party has offered a $10,000 bounty for Zimmerman’s capture.

    His political affiliations are irrelevent! Either he will be indicted and forced to stand trial or he will be exonerated of any wrongdoing. Sit back and take a deep breath. Let the investigations proceed. There will be investigations by Grand Jury, the State of Flolrida and the U.S. Department of Justice. Justice will prevail!

    My sarcasm is that it seems that the Dems are the ones constantly wanting to take the 2nd amendment away. It always strikes me as ironic when a Dem admits they have a gun.

    I'm glad to see that you support the 2nd amendment.

    Where do you get the idea that "Dems are the ones constantly wanting to take the 2nd amendment away"?

    For my own information, let me ask you a sample question: do you think the 2nd amendment gives you the right to own a ground-to-air missle launcher?
    Because, if you DON'T, then you believe the 2nd amendment needs restrictions and definitions as MUCH as most "dems' I know do.

    If you DO, then I understand.

    Hmmm interesting point. Since there were no surface to air weapons when the Constitution was written, i doubt the 2nd covers that.

    A lions share of the laws produced to control guns comes from Dems.
    When a shooting takes place, the Dems are the ones screaming for gun control.
  • Bastion Farnsworth 2012/03/28 17:19:12

    I haven't heard any "screaming".

    When the Constitution was written, there weren't any revolvers, either.
    So does the 2nd Amendment NOT refer to handguns?

    Not revolvers. Or automatics. Or AK-47s. Or even pump shotguns.

    The point is, the 2nd amendment was written without ANY modern weapons in mind. That doesn't mean it doesn't apply, but it certainly opens up the right to bear arms to at least some questions.

    My original question was whether the 2nd amendment guarantees the right for private citizens to own ground-to-air missles.
    What say you?
  • BY Bastion 2012/05/20 04:50:07

    In the US ownership of these are restricted as destructive devices. To be be legal for private ownership they have to be registered with the US government.

    To buy one you have to get the local police to sign off on it. Then you have to pass a backgound check. Some state laws may not allow ownership.

    Then you have to find an owner of a registered one who is willing to sell it. The manufacturers are in business to sell to the government. The government won't buy unless the manufacturer restricts sales.

    Also, ammo for destructive devices must be registered. You have to get approved for each round you buy.

    So yes, a person can legally own one provided they can get through all those hoops, and have the money to afford it (i.e. $38,000 for a stinger missile).

    That's great. But it's not a "right" - it's a restricted priviledge.

    Also, in the days of the Founders, private citizens did own cannons and ships equipped with cannons.

    Who was trying to put a "RWNJ handle" on him? I didn't see ANY of that - I did see a rush to judgement about whether he was acting out of racism, or some such behavior - but I heard not one reference to "RWNJ".

    There are questions about the "Stand Your Ground" laws, and questions about overzealous gun carrying - but there was really a dearth of comments about his political affiliation.

    I have voted democrat - and I'm for 2nd amendment rights. I own a gun. You seem awfully desperate in this whole thing to make some kind of a point that just makes no sense here.

    I think you jumped the gun on this (harhar) - and your "if you can still answer" comment is particularly self-regarding and smarmy.

    A Liberal Gun Owner? Figures since ol George misinterpeted the deadly force rule. Once the 911 operator told Georgie not to follow, what does George do? Follows the poor boy. This only reenforces my take on liberals....They don't listen to reason. Have fun in the pen Georgie, I am sure you will get a lot of mileage on that fat ass of yours.

    I'm not really surprised. I never really pictured him as a Republican. But it really doesn't mean anything other than now maybe Obama will want his arrest put off until after this election. If Zimmerman goes to prison, that will probably cost him a vote.
