He stood up for Trayvon Martin's killer at trial and on all the talk shows. He fine-tuned the narrative of Martin as a thug. He concealed his own criminal history and conducted white supremacist podcasts. But Frank Taaffe has had a change of heart, and now says Zimmerman is a racist murderer.
He. Can't. Shut. Up. In a new interview today, we learn George Zimmerman "absolutely" thinks he's a victim, just like "our fallen soldiers"; that he doesn't defend himself against enemies he calls "dragons"; and that he's never been racist, is always armed, and is living "the most Christlike that I can."
Frank Taaffe is George Zimmerman's best friend, who feverishly worked the networks during Zimmerman's murder trial to paint his victim, Trayvon Martin, as a black thug. Frank Taaffe is a white supremacist. And CNN's sister network still loves loves loves bringing Frank Taaffe on to talk about dead black boys.
Yesterday, we told you about gun-control poster-boy George Zimmerman's latest foray into visual art: a Shepard Fairey-esque rendering of the woman who prosecuted Zimmerman for killing Trayvon Martin. He may have something else in common with Fairey: ripping off the Associated Press to make his masterpieces.
"I feel like he always gets off," pregnant Samantha Scheibe told a police investigator after her boyfriend—George Zimmerman, killer of Trayvon Martin, alleged abuser of his wife, violator of innumerable traffic laws, collector of many firearms—pointed a shotgun at her and smashed her belongings. Scheibe was right, again.
George Zimmerman is an unemployable broke asshole, so maybe it's no real surprise that he's also an amateur artist. That original painting he was hawking on eBay this week — the one he described with a joke about Trayvon Martin ("my art work allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors :-)") — has potentially sold for six figures.
Less than a week after the latest weapon-involved domestic violence charges against George Zimmerman were dropped at the behest of his victim-slash-girlfriend, the perennial troublemaker-slash-black-teen-killer is back in the headlines today, but this time he's showcasing his softer, more artistic side.
George Zimmerman will not face charges for his arrest for domestic violence last month. Earlier this week, his girlfriend said she "felt very intimidated" during her interview with police and asked that all charges be dropped, despite her initial claims that Zimmerman trashed her home and pointed a gun in her face.
