This qualifies as a ‘really?’ moment. Following the brutal shooting in Virginia, George Zimmerman took to Twitter to call President Obama a ‘racist’ for… Reasons we aren’t exactly sure of.
So despicable. Two young journalists died on Aug. 26, when they were slain live on the air during a news report in Virginia. For reasons unbeknownst to, like, everyone, awful human George Zimmerman has “weighed in” with his two cents, writing about why President Barack Obama is a racist in light of the attacks. Sensitive as usual, George. Check out his egregious tweet for a good LOL.
“Pansy Vester lee Flanagan” George wrote on Twitter on Aug. 26. “Too much of a daisy to deal w/racism. Murders 2 whites. Hate crime, 100%. Racist Obama says nothing condemning.”
We know, we know. So much stupidity to unload in a single tweet. Alas, we must soldier through it.
First of all, let’s start with the obvious that George’s Twitter icon is a picture of the confederate flag, the universal symbol of a person who’s got their finger on the pulse of the direction of this country (severe sarcasm, obviously).
For those who may not recall, George was caught up in his own racially implicit incident back in 2012, when the former neighborhood watch coordinator shot and killed an unarmed black teenager, Trayvon Martin. George was charged with murder, however, he was ultimately acquitted. Regardless, many, many (many) Americans believe Mr. Zimmerman is guilty of cold-blooded murder so maybe he should choose his words more carefully when deciding who to call out as a “racist” on Twitter.
Anyways, George also spewed a ton more ignorant garbage on his Twitter which you can peruse at your own risk, but for now we’ll leave you with just the original tweet which you can check out below.
Do you think Zimmerman is a hypocrite for calling President Obama a racist?
