Super Not Racist Zimmerman Family: AG Eric Holder Protecting New Black Panthers Because He Is Black

American GraffitiTucker Carlson’s Daily Caller has a SCOOP you guys! Someone in the Zimmerman family wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, explaining they are not racist and saying the only reason Eric Holder hasn’t arrested the New Black Panther Party is because Eric Holder is black, and all blacks are always sticking together and doing other black things (probably mostly murdering white people, conspiring against white people, hate-criming white people and stealing stuff). Plus, did you know Marion Barry said some shitty stuff about Asian people? It’s true, he totally did that! Marion Barry sucks, so probably all other black people do too, it’s just science.

You could see why the Zimmerman family would be cheesed off about the New Black Panthers putting a bounty on George Zimmerman’s head. It is actually scary, instead of fake-scary like everyone shrieked and fainted about when all of two (2) New Black Panther dudes showed up at some polls one time and stood around bein’ all black. But they have a super weird way of showing how not racist they are?

Even though many feel that great strides have been made in race relations (we do have a black president), situations such as this make me wonder if this is indeed the case. There is the appearance of racism in every way this has been handled, and it is not coming from the supporters of George Zimmerman.

It is absolutely coming from the supporters of George Zimmerman. Also, that picture, on your Jukt Micronics website? That is a black community center that has been vandalized by your supporters. Oops?

Many people that I know (and many that I don’t) believe that racism is the only reason this group has not been rounded up yet.

[...]

“I would surmise that, based on your own definition of a hate crime, you have chosen not to arrest these individuals based solely on your race.”

Then the unnamed family member says the administration wants to foment a race war.

“[I]t sounds like an administration that condones this type of behavior and only wants to further the race problem [for] whatever reason.”

We get it, we get it, stop you are murdering us. You are not racist, you just think the blacks in charge of the country are out to get whites and start a race war. Not racist. Got it. Ace job Zimmerman family member. Very well done! [DailyCaller]

    Do all three New Black Panthers agree? Seriously, you could arrest all of the New Black Panthers and transport them in a Prius in one trip.

      1. Barb

        The only way a Prius is an answer to a problem is if the problem is you are tired of getting laid too much.

  2. BigSkullF*ckingDog

    Black, white, who cares? As long as we can all agree that we hate the Belgians. Fucking Belgians! Argh!

    1. ChernobylSoup

      True story: When I registered to become a foster parent they asked if there was any race or nationality of kid I wouldn't take (which is pretty sad). I said "no Belgians" and the woman actually wrote it down in my file.

    2. WiscDad

      …and the Irish….we'll give some land to the niggers and the chinks. But we don't want the Irish!

  3. Joshua Norton

    Fuck, if you let those racial agitators get their way, gunning down people on a whim might even become illegal or something and then what man will feel safe hunting and shooting a kid in cold blood? Is that the type of America we want to live in, people? IS IT?!?

  4. actor212

    There is the appearance of racism in every way this has been handled, and it is not coming from the supporters of George Zimmerman.

    ….who have been quick to point out that Zimmerman is not really white.

    1. SorosBot

      No, there has been no racism from the people arguing that "but he was black and therefore scary" is a valid claim of self-defense for stalking down and shooting an unnamed kid.

      1. Fare la Volpe

        But Soros, every one knows he had gold teeth (no he didn't), tattoos (illegal to get them before 18th birthday), and wore a doo rag (just like the criminal mastermind Aunt Jemima).

        1. SorosBot

          And he was wearing a hoodie. A hoodie! You know how scary that makes people. Oh and he may have been suspended for smoking pot, which somehow makes shooting him perfectly OK; I think the rule is that it is wrong to shoot unarmed kids for being black if they're straight-A students who have never gotten in trouble at school, but even one hit on the disciplinary record means it's OK for some random dude to gun him down for his skin color.

          1. McDonnellville

            Don't forget the pic of Trayvon flippin' the bird. HE WAS CLEARLY FLIPPING OFF WHITE AMERICA!!11!!

  5. Schmannnity

    First the Zimmermann Telegram drags the US into WWI and now the Zimmerman letter launches a race war.

  6. Gratuitous World

    Sooo Eric Holder stalked and killed Trayvon Martin so the Black Panthers could infiltrate Sanford's community watch so that Van Jones can take you guns.
    also, black president.

    1. Preferred Customer

      Did we check and make sure it wasn't James O'Keefe just pretending to be Eric Holder?

      1. Generation[redacted]

        We need some good investigative journalism. Can we convince O'Keefe to walk through these neighborhoods at night in blackface and a hoodie?

  7. RedneckMuslin

    Okay, let's all agree that when the New Black Panthers shoot an unarmed white kid with a hoodie, they need to be arrested.

    1. mayor_quimby

      Nice try, I'm not falling for your logic tricks. Black Panthers should ALWAYS be arrested, just for looking all menacing in berets and jack-boots.

  8. Barb

    We should wait for Rush to chime in on this, except in the Philadelphia station, CBS affiliate WPHT, that just dropped his fat ass.

  9. mavenmaven

    It is a hate crime if you say you will kill someone, but apparently not if you actually kill someone unarmed in cold blood with a gun.

    1. Generation[redacted]

      Guns don't kill people, except when they perform according to the design specifications for which they have been optimized, in the hands of a person using them as intended.

  10. Texan_Bulldog

    Oh ho…that's right. Black Panthers did the vile act of placing a bounty on someone and no arrests. White Mexican Zimmerman killed an unarmed teenager and no arrest. (Of course these things are absolutely equal in some [disturbed] minds.) America, it's racial transcendence for all!

  11. DaRooster

    OK, OK,it is time to admit it-
    I am prejudiced… against Stupid people!

    There, I feel better now.

  12. ChernobylSoup

    Be a shame if the Zimmerman clan all gathered in a compound. I hear there's real estate available on the outskirts of Waco.

  13. Baconzgood

    Zimmermans…..you're not helping the case here. Oh that's right there is no case because there was no arrest.

  14. ManchuCandidate

    Hmmm… I have a feeling good judgement isn't a Zimmerman Family trait

    Considered Good Ideas
    Shooting a kid armed with Skittles.
    Not listening to 911 operator
    Being neighborhood watch that nobody really wanted
    Writing letter saying you black people band together…. waaaaaaah

  15. BaldarTFlagass

    "(probably mostly murdering white people, conspiring against white people, hate-criming white people and stealing stuff). "

    Hell, it goes back hundreds of years farther than that. How about when they high-jacked all those European sailing ships and forced the crews to give them free rides to the New World? Fucking intimidators!!

  16. Hera Sent Me

    You kill one unarmed, black teen within sight of his home, shortly after muttering about how "coons" like him always get away, and you're marked for life as a racist.

    This is what happens when you let a Kenyan Muslim socialist become president.

  17. FakaktaSouth

    What Super Group can I add NEW to to automatically get famous? This was INGENIOUS strategery on teh part of these New Black Panthers. Do they have backing from the old ones? Would I have to get permission to be the NEW Merry Pranksters? Will they automatically KNOW I have tripped out all your waters? The NEW Osmonds? Will they KNOW I am now Mormon, sing terribly (full disclosure, I saw and loved them in concert in 1977) and have really white teeth?

    1. actor212

      NEW ABBA, I hear, is available.

      Singing ability would not matter. Just flash your blonde hair and your boobs in skin-tight bell-bottoms

  18. freakishlywrong

    Ugh. This fucking country. Everything, EVERYTHING has to be a "controversy". There are always two sides. No. There are not. Stalking and killing a kid for walking back to his Dad's house is wrong. Period. These assholes "supporting Zimmerman" are racist gun-nuts. Period. Obfuscating about Black Panthers doesn't cut it. Period.

    1. SorosBot

      In thinking about Dylan, the sad thing is it would only take a small rewrite of The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll to be about the Martin shooting. Oh how far we've come in fifty years.

  19. WiscDad

    How come Zimmerman doesn't have a 'Contact me' link on his begging ass web site? I want to donate my .02 cents.

    1. actor212

      Actually, someone cleverly figured out that, if you donate a penny, it costs him more in fees than he gets AND you can leave him a message.

        1. Jus_Wonderin

          Fucketh ye with skin of white.
          Oh, bring me a hoodie that I can tight-
          ly strangle ye with as ye eyes bug out
          and your last breath is a weeze I can laugh about.

          I don't mean bodily harm.
          But fuck them as I knaw off their arm.

  20. CrazyLikeFox

    I take it the Daily Caller presented this moronic statement with the outrage and incredulity it deserved.

    It didn't?

  21. Allmighty_Manos

    Remember 2008, when we were on the verge of racial transcendence? Yeah, me neither. Back to the usual folks.

  22. dijetlo

    Dear Zimmermans,

    According to science, you are the culmination of 4 billion years of evolution.
    Please try to act like it.

    Sincerely,
    The Rest of the Human Race

  23. Fare la Volpe

    It's time for another edition of Not Racist, Really Racist

    Not Racist: Stalking and shooting an unarmed black teenager in cold blood without provocation, after police explicitly told you not to follow him, then getting away with murder because you're white and your white daddy and white mommy are both members of the court system.

    Really Racist: Trying to arrest the guy above.

  24. elviouslyqueer

    *ahem*

    "When the DOJ concludes its investigation regarding civil rights violations in this case there is no doubt that you will determine that the only person that has had their civil rights violated is George Zimmerman."

    And yet Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old black child, is still dead. Funny that.

  25. GuyClinch

    The other pic on his site showing support for Zimmerman comes from a rally porn-stasche-haver and Koran-burner Pastor Terry Jones held. So, we have racist vandalizers, storm-front neo-nazis, Terry Jones and pretty much all Fox News imbeciles supporting Zimmerman. Yeah, really great associations there, Georgie!

    1. actor212

      Strangely, I don't really have a problem with this. The man is entitled to a defense.

      Plus, it's that much less money the yahoos have to donate to Mitt.

          1. Barb

            Yes, put it on our tax dollar. It beats the shit out of people committing hate crimes and thinking that they can set up donation sites and get paid for hateful murders.

          2. actor212

            So let's say he walks. A public defender costs him nothing and he literally gets away with murder.

            Here, he's already putting up his own money, finds he doesn't have enough and goes begging.

            I'm thinking even if he walks, he's bankrupt.

          3. Barb

            He's already morally bankrupt. How do we know that he isn't going to take whatever money donated tonight and go buy some more guns and bullets and kill some more children.

          4. Chill-A-Sketch

            If he ever goes to prison, he'll be on the Taxpayer's dime anyway. I can see the site turning into a book, then turning into a movie and possibly turning into a Faux News gig. I do have a problem with this asshole making a profit out of this situation.

          5. BerkeleyBear

            Does anyone know if Florida has a Son of Sam law (making proceeds of any publicity/movie tied to criminal behavior forfeit)? Sounds like the sort of thing they'd normally have, since it was a reactionary over the top get tough on crime law.

            Of course, Zimmerman has to get convicted of something for that to matter – which feels unlikely at this point, sadly.

  26. SorosBot

    "There is the appearance of racism in every way this has been handled, and it is not coming from the supporters of George Zimmerman."

    True, there has not been the appearance of racism coming from the supporters of George Zimmerman; there has been lots of actual giant flaming racism from his supporters. The only way someone could support that racist murderer is if they are themselves a giant flaming racist. No one can support what that evil murderer did without being a full-on, KKK-worthy vile racist shitbag.

  27. Goonemeritus

    Why do we arm our idiots in this country? If it is purely a Darwinian exercise couldn’t we give them large carnivorous animals to raise?

    1. glamourdammerung

      Why do we arm our idiots in this country? If it is purely a Darwinian exercise couldn’t we give them large carnivorous animals to raise?

      It does not work. They just release the pythons into the Everglades.

  28. Barb

    Did anyone see that Zimmerman's lawyer is citing "shaken baby syndrome" as a defense? (seriously)

    1. Baconzgood

      When I had to go through all the parenting classes and dr. visits when ex Mrs. Baconz had Baconz Jr. in her belly, I thought Shaken baby Syndrome was the coolest sounding syndrome. It sounds like a Jon Spencer Blues Explosion song.

      1. Generation[redacted]

        Shaking beef defense. All you need is a jury who's eaten at the Slanted Door, he will walk.

    2. BerkeleyBear

      Awesome. I hate the line "three generations of imbeciles are enough" because it was applied to a woman who was at most mildly developmentally delayed, and eugenics is sick, but I seriously want to apply it to assholes like Zimmerman, his family and his lawyer.

  29. MissTaken

    “[I]t sounds like an administration that condones this type of behavior and only wants to further the race problem [for] whatever reason.”

    First, what you call whatever reason is actually the very real reason that your family member shot and killed an unarmed kid.

    Second, the only person who 'further[ed] the race problem' was your family member when he shot and killed an unarmed kid for no apparent reason other than being black.

    Third, I certainly hope that bullshit, racist quotes like these will be admitted as evidence during Zimmerman's federal civil rights violations trial.

    1. SorosBot

      Are you calling Zimmerman's family a racist just because they're acting like giant flaming racists? That makes you the real racist!

    2. BerkeleyBear

      Only if Zimmerman is found to have endorsed or made statements like this before he shot Trayvon. Although it is entirely likely he did – you don't normally wake up one morning and suddenly decide to drop racist rants for no reason.

    1. Jus_Wonderin

      This reminds me of the CraigsList ad for Hedge Tremors. Which, was not quite as funny as the one selling a Candle Opera.

  30. Guppy

    Many people that I know (and many that I don’t) believe that racism is the only reason this group has not been rounded up yet.

    If it were a crime in this country to be angry, armed, and organized, all of Montana would be in jail by now.

    RUBY RIDGE LIBEL!!!11

  31. Ruhe

    I find it interesting how these examples of "low-effort" thinking can, nonetheless, seem to be so tortuously convoluted. What's the point of being stupid if you have to work so hard at it.

  32. Mumbly_Joe

    One could argue that the reason the New Black Panthers haven't been arrested is for the same reason other, larger, more relevant hate groups haven't been arrested, which is that, in America, we take a very broad interpretation of protected speech, and that as such, this falls somewhat short of shooting an unarmed teenager to death, after stalking and accosting him, in terms of hate-crime-tude.

    I mean, does it suck for him, that his "life has been disrupted", and he's "had to go into seclusion"? I mean, maybe, I guess, but on the other hand, he's also not in prison, despite shooting an unarmed teenager to death, after stalking and accosting him. And I hear prison is pretty life-disrupting, too. So, I'm kinda having trouble mustering the sympathy here.

    1. LetUsBray

      And walking home from a convenience store and ending up shot dead is pretty life-disrupting, too.

  33. CivicHoliday

    I am sure they'll remember this next time a pro-life group calls for the murder of an abortion doctor. Arrest them! Arrest them all!

  34. donner_froh

    No difference between a disgraced D.C. politician saying something stupid about Asians and gunning down an unarmed black kid.

    Brilliant–why didn't I think of that?

  35. owhatever

    Another excellent reason to run down and hand money to your local dealer before that Black Panther in the White House (Michelle is way too cool to be just a cougar) takes away our guns. And if they take away our guns, how are we supposed to shoot unarmed black kids? Huh?

  36. Redhead

    This is like the "shit gay people say to Derbyshire" post about how if you want really freaky porn, go visit the most Christian/rightwing/homophobic guy you know.

    I'm the most not-racist out of all of you! Really, I super swear!

  37. Dr. Nick Riviera

    You know, I mocked the Zimmerman family when I read the new defense was that Zimmerman shot Martin because he was afraid of dying from "shaken baby syndrome". But if this is anything to go by, perhaps their skulls and brains are as mushy as a newborn's.

  38. Warwhatgoodfor

    Huey Newton and Bobby Seale would have carved the Zimmerman's up into so many pieces that Isis herself couldn't have found all off them.

  39. Negropolis

    Project much you racist SOBs?

    I knew the minute I heard George's father going off about the "hate" displayed by the president and the NAACP and (insert random black person/organization here) who were are dealing with.

    This was already a fucked up situation because a 17-year-old was mowed down by some cop-wannabe. Zimmermans, you are not helping; you are not helping, at all. Really, this just makes one want to cry. It's not even anger at the stupidity, anymore, it's sadness. You know, the Zimmermans could have had the good decency to just stay silent, or let a family attorney speak for them. I've now seen his brother and his father being dicks on television, and I have absolutely zero sympathy for them.

    Stay kkklassy, Zimmermans.

  40. ttommyunger

    I can see it now, if the Feds don't step up in a big way (Civil Rights Prosecution) on this deal, Zimmerman will skate AND become another fucking Joe the Plumber (with sidearms).
