George Zimmerman’s Brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., Compares Trayvon Martin to Alleged Baby-Killer DeMarquise Elkins

Robert Zimmerman Jr. ‘proud to be an American’ after brother, George Zimmerman, found not guilty of murdering unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin.

Robert Zimmerman Jr., the brother of Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman is on a racist PR campaign by smearing the name of the victim any way he can. He took to Twitter to compare Trayvon Martin to alleged baby-killer DeMarquise Elkins. Um, one problem — George Zimmerman was the murderer, not Trayvon Martin. Utterly shameful. So, because Trayvon Martin flipped the bird in a ridiculous picture on some social media site, somehow it legitimizes George Zimmerman killing him? Absolutely unbelievable. The reality is that DeMarquise Elkins has more in common with George Zimmerman than Trayvon Martin does. At the end of the day, they both killed two people who were unarmed.

Zimmerman has, thus far, tweeted the comparison to the Anthony half of Opie and AnthonyMichael Moore, the NAACP, and a Breitbart News editor, as well as the NRA. If Zimmerman’s point is that anyone who uses that gesture is a murderer, then they’re going to have to arrest the entire Garden State Parkway. If you suspect that wasn’t his point, you might be right.

Earlier in the day, in case anyone did miss the point, Zimmerman tweeted several other revealing comparisons between his brother’s case and the slaying of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago, including one that might be particularly unhelpful. In one, Zimmerman promotes his brother’s versionof events:

Teen to West: “Do you want me to shoot your baby?” #TrayvonMartin to#GeorgeZimmerman : You’re gonna die tonight Motherf**ker”

And in another, he cuts to the proverbial chase:

Lib media shld ask if what these2 black teens did 2 a woman&baby is the reason ppl think blacks mightB risky. Source

If his family had any decency, they would tell Robert Zimmerman Jr. to stop the ugly racist rhetoric. It will only backfire. T. J. Lane, who is white, didn’t evoke such feelings of hate from Robert Zimmerman Jr., when he appeared in court for his sentencing last week wearing a t-shirt with the word KILLER written across it to taunt the victims and smirked while the proceedings were underway. I guess that’s okay because black kids are the only troublemakers running around.
