George Zimmerman Sues Two Top Tier Democratic Candidates for Defamation!

George Zimmerman is suing top-tier democratic candidates Elizabeth Warren and Mayor Pete Buttigieg for defamation.

Zimmerman is the former Floridian neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted of murder in the 2012 fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman has remained a controversial figure and a bit of lightning rod since his acquittal, with those who support him, and those who abhor him, pretty much split along left-right political lines.

According to Fox News, he is seeking $265 million in damages from the democratic candidates. This all stems from tweets each of the presidential candidates sent on Feb. 5, the day Martin would have turned 25 years old. The lawsuit was filed in Polk County, Florida, and it claims that Warren and Buttigieg tried using the killing “as a pretext to demagogue and falsely brand Zimmerman as a white supremacist and racist to their millions of Twitter followers.”

In one of the tweets on which the lawsuit is focused, Buttigieg said, “Trayvon Martin would have been 25 today. How many 25th birthdays have been stolen from us by white supremacy, gun violence, prejudice, and fear? #BlackLivesMatter.”

Warren said in her tweet, “My heart goes out to @SybrinaFulton and Trayvon’s family and friends. He should still be with us today. We need to end gun violence and racism. And we need to build a world where all of our children—especially young Black boys—can grow up safe and free.”

Zimmerman’s lawsuit claims the presidential candidates defamed him by implying that he had racist or white supremacist motivations or ideologies behind the killing.

“It is high time that the cheap and harmful use of the race card by politicians of all stripes be made to cease and desist,” Larry Klayman, Zimmerman’s attorney and founder of Judicial Watch, said in a statement. “Their despicable ‘race tactics’ are not only causing great harm to persons such as my client George Zimmerman, but also are damaging relations between black and white Americans who are all brothers.”

Zimmerman said that he acted in self-defense after Martin attacked him, and a jury found him not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter in 2013. In December, Zimmerman sued Martin’s family and others involved in the case, seeking $100 million in civil damages.

    Hopefully, Zimmerman will win. We believed he was innocent from the beginning and was only doing his duty when he was attacked by Martin. He was licensed to patrol the neighborhood, not on a racist effort to kill anyone. The true thugs in the story were Warren and Buttigieg, who took up the worn out charge and the “Black Lives Matter” mantra. It’s hard to discharge lies and worn out slogans.

    So glad you are going after these idiotic Democrats. Many idolize Martin when he was trespassing and was planning possible nefarious things. I will take a quote about terrorist—‘ not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists seem to be Muslims’. And I will say —not all young black men do criminal activities but a great percentage of the criminals are, in fact, black. Also, I detest ‘black lives matter’ because it was the start of blue lives don’t matter and the attack against police and all in authority.

    I think that all the families have suffered enough, although the Democrats can’t leave well enough alone, so if Zimmerman is trying to get $ from them defaming him, best of luck.

    On that day Travon was expelled from school because he had marijuana on his person according to the media! Zimmerman was defending himself, photos provided by Media showed the damage Travon had caused by bashing Zimmermans head onto the parking lot! And Mr. Zimmerman is Hispanic how is that white supremacy? Elizabeth Warren and Mayor Pete need to pay!
