George Zimmerman recently took an incredibly brave stance. The man who had his whole life turned upside by deeply-divided racial tensions in America recently thumbed his nose at the bullies who forced him into exile and who expected him to cower and hide for the rest of his life.
The former neighborhood watch participant was tried in 2013 for his role in the death of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old black male who Zimmerman alleged attacked him when the volunteer followed Martin through a neighborhood.
Though physical evidence substantiated Zimmerman’s assertion that Martin had been banging his head into the pavement when Zimmerman fired the fatal shots from his 9mm pistol he had had on him, the intensely political nature of a man who the media labeled as “white” killing a black youth prompted state and federal inquiries that served as desperate attempts to quell the outrage emanating from the black community and guilty white liberals.
After his acquittal, Zimmerman went into hiding to avoid the threats lobbed by the leftists who threatened violence in the name of “tolerance.”
However, earlier this month, Zimmerman emerged to sell his gun. Predictably, the left flipped.
Soon, Gunbroker.com cowardly caved and removed the auction. Thankfully, another group, United Gun Group, pledged to host the auction and asserted that they refused to dictate morality and would treat Zimmerman like any other customers.
Liberal trolls attempted to thwart the auction by placing fake bids to ruin the auction. However, United Gun Group reportedly had a plan in place to thwart these intolerant zealots by pre-approving potential bidders.
According to reports, Zimmerman netted a closing bid of over $120,000 for his Kel-Tec pistol- a pistol that usually goes for between $200 and $250.
Many are likely dismayed that Zimmerman received such a hefty payday despite the ridiculous outrage surrounding the effort. Many spewed venomous hatred on social media and mainstream media outlets calling the effort disgusting and tasteless.
However, Zimmerman reminded, “I’m a free American; I can do what I’d like with my possessions.”
He’s correct; people may feel however they wish about Mr. Zimmerman, but the fact is that he did nothing wrong. He was arrested, tried, and acquitted. According to our system of justice, Zimmerman should be free to do whatever he wants with his possessions.
Despite intolerant liberals’ best efforts, it seems Zimmerman received a sizeable payday. Hopefully, he can put this money to good use and help rebuild the life destroyed by race hustlers and the mainstream media.
