George Zimmerman Now Can't Even Draw Flies



In the immortal words of B.B. King, "The thrill is gone. The thrill is gone away." And that's good news when it comes to George Zimmerman.

George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watchman and killer of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, failed to draw many fans at an Orlando gun show on Saturday, according to the NY Daily News. What can you say? Maybe the fascination with this killer has worn off. I wonder how OJ would have done at this event?

NY Daily News:

Over the course of six hours, fewer than 20 people at the gun show asked for a free autographed photo of Zimmerman, who was situated in a rear office of The Arms Room gun store in Orlando. The gun show, originally booked at Orlando’s Majestic Events Center, had been cancelled after word that Zimmerman would appear, however the promoters were able to secure another venue.


So, here's hoping sanity has returned to the public. Fascination with fads, like Fizzies and Lickamade are passing fancies. Now we can try adding George Z to that list.

George Zimmerman: "I certainly was a victim," Obama administration's "scapegoat"

Via TPM, video of CNN's Chris Cuomo interviewing Trayvon Martin's killer, George Zimmerman:

Cuomo: If you could go back and do it again, you had said you would have stayed home that night.

Zimmerman: I would stay home.

Cuomo: So that both of you would still be alive today.

Zimmerman: That’s a presumption I can’t make, I don’t know what would have happened. I could have gotten in a car accident when I left, you know?

Cuomo: But you wouldn't have wound up killing Trayvon Martin if you had your way?

Zimmerman: He probably wouldn’t have ended up attacking me either if I would have stayed home.

In other words, had he stayed home-- or even stayed in his car-- Martin wouldn't have had to defend himself against a stalker carrying a loaded gun.

George Zimmerman also seemed to have trouble articulating exactly what he might say to Trayvon Martin's family, given the opportunity. When  asked, he was literally tongue-tied.

He did say this, however:

"No, I certainly was a victim when I was having my head bashed into the concrete and my nose broken and beaten, I wouldn’t say I was not a victim."

Zimmerman went on to talk about "the miscarriage of justice that happened to me." Yes, him, because, you see, Georgie's the real victim here. Not the unarmed teenager who was gunned down, nor the dead teen's grieving family. You, you, you, it's all about you:

it's not all about youCuomo: What was the miscarriage of justice?

Zimmerman: The fact that two law enforcement entities stated that I had acted within the laws of our nation, in self defense.

Cuomo: You don't think it was about the law?

Zimmerman: I know it wasn’t, yes.

Cuomo: And what does that make you?

Zimmerman: Like a scapegoat.

Cuomo: A scapegoat for?

Zimmerman: The government, the President, the attorney general.

Cuomo: They would be scapegoating you, why? Just to show that they're taking a position on something that matters to a lot of people?

Zimmerman: I don’t know what they’re thinking or why they’re thinking it, all I know is that is that they’re doing it. I don’t know what agenda they have.

They're after me because, Benghazi!!!!!

Here's one comment I noticed under the TPM post:

And In This Corner Attempting Once Again To Stand His Ground, George 'Skittles' Zimmerman



In what can only be described is a cracker fight promoter's wet dream, the boxing match to rival Ali-Frazier or Ali-Forman, has been set. Get ready to hear "Ladies and gentlemen. Let's get ready to rrrrrummmble!"

In a match that is worthy of the 'Duck Dynasty' crowd, the two combatants have been set. In one corner is teen boy killer George Zimmerman:and in the other, rapper DMX.

The tale of the tape from TPM:

That George Zimmerman charity boxing match is really happening, and now he has an opponent.

Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman said in a news release that he picked rapper DMX out of a pool of 15,000 e-mailed requests to participate. "The match will be one of the Biggest Celebrity Boxing matches of all time," the release read, as quoted by CNN.

In the interest of fairness, this bout is for charity. And the idea for this fight I'm callin 'Simmerin' on the Zimmerman' came from none other than the boy killer himself.

Zimmerman previously said the match was his idea, and that he had been training since "prior to the incident." [incident?]

In case you were living under a rock and didn't know about this "incident," George Zimmerman was acquitted in 2012 in the killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.

So, it looks like there's going to be a lot of trash talk about this bout. In DMX's case, it's already started:

DMX was pretty fired up for the bout. He told TMZ he was prepared to break every rule in boxing "to make sure I f**k him right up."

In case you were wondering where the proceeds were going to be shared from this bout, here's the report in a different post from TPM:

Zimmerman didn't confirm or deny to Radar whether he would be taking a cut of the proceeds from the match. He also declined to say exactly where the proceeds would be donated, beyond that is was an animal rescue.

Animal rescue. It does lead you to ask why? Is that the way he looked at Trayvon -- as an animal? Couldn't he have taken a step and chosen some humanitarian cause to share the proceeds with? With this fight going pay-per-view, we can only imagine the money and the interest this bout is going to generate. Those are sure to be some lucky animals when the gate receipts and PPV revenues are divvied up.
