George Zimmerman speaks
, the hate object
of liberal America which seeks his destruction, has set up a website
, The Real George Zimmerman
, which his attorneys verify is really his and not an imposter’s. Here is what it says on the main page:
I am the real George Zimmerman.
On Sunday February 26th, I was involved in a life altering event which led me to become the subject of intense media coverage. As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family, and ultimately, my entire life. This website’s sole purpose is to ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries….
I have created a Paypal account solely linked on this website as I would like to provide an avenue to thank my supporters personally and ensure that any funds provided are used only for living expenses and legal defense, in lieu of my forced inability to maintain employment. I will also personally, maintain accountability of all funds received. I reassure you, every donation is appreciated.
Update as of 1:30pm EST on Tuesday, April 10th
I am attempting to respond to each and everyone of my supporters personally. The support has been overwhelming in volume and strength. I thank you all and ask that you permit me the time to respond to each one of you personally. Once again thank you.

The main page has links to pages such as “The Facts,” “My Race,” etc. but they provide no further information. On the “Race” page, instead of clarifying the vexed question of his own racial make-up, Zimmerman seems to eschew the idea that he has a race, quoting Thomas Paine: “The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.” Hmm, isn’t that where the liberal death cult that now demands Zimmerman’s head got started?

I feel so sorry for this man—did you see his “Race” link? It takes you to a picture of the American flag and a quote by Thomas Paine. My God, this man was trying to do the right thing and the liberals are literally crucifying him. How apropos to the current season in which this has transpired.

What else would one expect? His father is most likely Jewish and he married a Peruvian Indian—George’s mother. Of course George was brought up in a liberal environment and of course he is a Democrat. Now one has to wonder what they, the Zimmermans, think of liberalism. Have they been “mugged”? Have they been mugged enough?

Well the website was clearly not set up by a professional. Anyway, look, sure this guy’s a liberal. He’s a good American. All good Americans are liberals. That’s just how they were raised. Most people don’t go to great lengths trying to diagnose the ills of society. In a sane world, they wouldn’t have to.(In an insane world, it is a positive requirement that sites like VFR exist.)

I have immense sympathy for this guy. He was just trying to be a good neighbor and walked into this s***storm. We need more folks like him … and unfortunately his treatment is just going to make it that much less likely that we’ll get more like him. With good people further cowtowed into doing nothing, the anarchy is just that much less restrained. I for one plan to throw fifty bucks his way.
