George Zimmerman: Virginia shootings are a ‘hate crime’ by black ‘pansy’ — and Obama’s an ‘ignorant baboon’

George Zimmerman, the gun-obsessed killer of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, offered some racist comments on the fatal shootings of two TV journalists by a disgruntled former colleague.

WDBJ-TV reporter Alison Parker, 24, and photographer Adam Ward, 27, were killed Monday morning when Vester Flanagan II opened fire on them during a live broadcast, also wounding Vicki Gardner, who was giving an interview.

Zimmerman, who says he can’t find work after his 2013 acquittal but recently teamed up with the owner of a “Muslim-free” gun shop owner to sell Confederate flag prints, reacted to the shooting by attacking President Barack Obama.

Pansy Fester lee Flanagan, too much of a daisy to deal w/racism. Murders 2 whites. Hate crime, 100%. Racist Obama says nothing condeming.

Flanagan, who was gay and black, sent a 23-page manifesto to ABC News explaining that his simmering rage had boiled over after the fatal shootings of nine black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, by a white supremacist.

The 41-year-old Flanagan, who broadcast using the name Bryce Williams, fatally shot himself after posting online video of the killings that he had recorded himself.

Obama said Wednesday afternoon that “it breaks (his) heart every time you read or hear about these kinds of incidents,” but he said “the number of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism.”

Zimmerman reacted to the president’s comments by calling him “an ignorant baboon.”

The Confederate flag-hawking acquitted killer’s comments appear to be part of an emerging narrative about the Virginia shootings, which conservatives are using to push back against advancing civil rights for black and LGBT Americans.

DEPT OF SINGLE STANDARDS: Hey after the #VirginiaShooting is it time to take down those rainbow flags we see all over the place?

When a black gay guy goes nuts and kills white people, is it safe to call it a DOUBLE hate crime? #VirginiaShooting http://t.co/AYwOx334fd

Update: Zimmerman started tweeting again early Thursday morning, arguing with critics, retweeting supporters and launching new attacks against the president.

How so?

Has the Obama Administration returned his gun yet so he can sell it to a collector?

@oralloy,
Do you really think becoming a figurehead in the white supremacist movement is a good life choice for Zimmerman?

I don't perceive him as becoming such a figurehead.

Although I guess I have no idea which figures they support (other than Trump).

@oralloy,
If I were someone who admitted to killing an unarmed black 17-year old kid (however justified I felt I was) I would think twice before taking a job selling confederate flags. If this were me, I would try to put the fact that I had taken a human life behind me. After making whatever amends I could to the family, I would then either work to make a positive difference... or I would do my best to fade from the limelight.

That isn't what Mr. Zimmerman is doing. He keeps showing up in national news for doing and saying racially charged things... basically pushing himself back into the limelight.

Whether you think he should be in jail or not doesn't matter. Either way I don't think he is acting in a very intelligent manner.
