George Zimmerman Loses Lawsuit; It’s Not NBC’s Fault He Appears to be a Racist

As you might be aware by now, George Zimmerman, the man who chased down an unarmed child carrying a bag of Skittles and shot him, feels that he’s the victim in pretty much any situation. So it’s not a surprise that he sued NBC for making him out to be a racist by using his own words.

A Florida court found Monday that NBC did not try to make Zimmerman out to be a racist with malicious intent. (Hint: It wasn’t his words but rather his actions that made him appear to be a racist.)

Zimmerman accused NBC of maliciously editing his 911 call to make him appear racist. According to The Wrap, “A Florida judge granted NBC’s motion for summary judgment against Zimmerman, saying he had not met the legal standard to prove malicious intent.”

Zimmerman called 911 the night of Feb. 26, 2012 to report a man — who turned out to be the 17-year-old Martin — whom he believed was behaving suspiciously.

“This guy looks like he’s up to no good,” Zimmerman told the 911 operator. The operator asked about the man’s race, and Zimmerman responded, “he looks black.”

NBC edited out a question to which Zimmerman responded and his words — coupled with his suspicion and subsequent killing of the person he identified as black — made him sound racist, especially given that he had no reason to be suspicious of Trayvon Martin’s existence in the neighborhood.

But he can’t prove that NBC was trying to make him sound like a racist and it’s hardly NBC’s fault that George Zimmerman finds 17-year-old black boys walking home while wearing a hoodie — like the rest of America’s youth — to be “suspicious”. It is also not NBC’s fault that Zimmerman got out of his car and chased down this innocent 17-year-old for no reason, instigating a confrontation out of nowhere for as of yet unknown reasons other than Zimmerman found him to be “suspicious”.

It’s telling that right-wing hero George Zimmerman felt entitled to sue NBC over how they put his own words, but he also felt entitled to shoot and kill a young boy for wearing a hoodie. Talk about malicious intentions and taking things out of context…

George Zimmerman is the ultimate right-wing perpetual victim. He is, after all, the person who demanded that the African American community apologize to him after he chased down, shot and killed an innocent boy. The Right has had him on a cross for killing Trayvon Martin and then again for threatening his girlfriend and wife. He’s quite the hero. No personal responsibility for his own actions or words, but a lot of festering feelings of persecution and entitlement.

  1. He never had a case in the first place.thanks to an incompetent prosecution and some nasty hateful people on the jury who chose to ignore evidence he got away with it.Despite the fact the kid was heard screaming for help and begging for his life before he was shot. He better hope he doesn’t run into Tracy Martin one of these days.

  2. All any lawyer needed was the 2003 Fox News case. That is something he nor his lawyer knew about evidently. I mean, they won the right for “news” outlets to be able to lie and edit tapes and e-mails. Look at 60 minutes Lara Longan or Logan and at Fox news, the “you didn’t build that” or Pelosi saying “you have to read it to see what is in it”. They take clips and cut them out of context nearly every program daily. It would have been mission impossible to begin with.

  3. Good his lawsuit was dismissed. The real issue is how he got away with killing trayvon. Meanwhile, Trevor Dooley did the exact same thing zman did and got 8 yrs prison 10 yrs probation.

  4. NBC *DID* edit his words to make the conversation sound overtly racist.

    He is also a racist.

    It’s not an either/or thing. NBC and Zimmerman can both be wrong.

    Zimmerman just can prove it was NBC’s intent to make him racist, just like the Martin family couldn’t prove their son died due to racism.

    Intent is so hard to prove.

  5. He killed a child, and now he wants money for his own lack of foresight and integrity? Wow. What a low-down, morally decrepit scumbag.

  6. Irony thy name is “Not Enough Evidence” Isnt it funny that he’s a. Victim of the same thing that set his porky pig lookin ass free….. Insufficient evidence. Glad somebody finally put his piggy ass in the frying pan!

  7. He certainly is a racist Mary as he is heard plain and clear, on the NEN tape, saying the words, “F’ing COONS!” He also edited those words out of the tape, that he gave to the court.

    NBC didn’t put those words in ThugBoat’s stinking mouth and, if he had left that child alone, he would have never found himself facing a M2 charge, which should have actually been a M1 charge.

    I have “NEVER” seen a murder trial, where the prosecution and, LE take the side, of the defendant. But this is exactly what happened, in this farce of a trial. The cards were stacked against Trayvon on 02/26/12 and, the prosecution never had any intentions, of convicting the murderer. That is why, the prosecution acted as if they had never seen the inside of a courtroom. How pathetic and, corrupt they are.

  8. I couldn’t agree with you more John and, what’s eve more pathetic is the fact, that he had other racist whites in this country, supporting him for killing a child. Not only did they support him by sending him donations, they also trashed his child victim and, his parents.

    This country is full of some “EVIL” white people. Not all whites are evil racist but, there are a fair amount of them living among us. Had he murdered a white kid, there is no way, that they would have supported him in any way. And, they would have never trashed him either.

    Then some people wonder why 9/11 happened!

  9. His past actions even before murdering Trayvon Martin prove he’s a racist. When he was the self-appointed neighborhood watch captain, he made 40+ calls to 9-1-1 and the vast majority of them were about black males. Most of the calls were also frivolous, and one involved a boy not even 10 years old. Residents used to complain about his tactics, and it’s obvious that something should have been done about him before he ended up killing someone unnecessarily. It’s no one’s fault but his that he’s perceived as a racist because his own words and actions bear it out.

  10. People are still repeating lies. Are they too stupid or gullible to find out the truth for themselves? So much for “no parent wants to outlive their children.” People claim to fight for justice and then turn around and cause injustices. The same people claim to fight for equality and then persecute people. Thank God I can think for myself.
