Something About George Zimmerman You Won’t Be Hearing About on the Network Newscasts

We’re hearing lots of information about Trayvon Martin and even his family, much of which the MSM will not report, but there’s also something about the man who shot him that you’ll not be learning about on the network news this evening: George Zimmerman is a registered Democrat:

George Michael Zimmerman, born Oct. 5, 1983, registered as a Democrat in Seminole County, Fla., in August 2002, according to state voter registration documents.

It is unclear whether he voted for President Barack Obama in 2008.

Some in the media have sought to blame Republican politicians and conservative activists for Martin’s death.

“[Republican politicians] reinforce and validate old stereotypes that associate the poor and welfare as criminal behavior with African-Americans and people of color, calling us lazy, undeserving recipients of public assistance. In the case of Trayvon, those festering stereotypes had lethal consequences,” said MSNBC political analyst and Democratic fundraiser Karen Finney.

According to the document, Zimmerman’s race is officially listed as Hispanic. The son of a white father and Peruvian mother, he has been described as a “white Hispanic” in most media reports.

This will do nothing to stop the left-wing narrative. The truth and facts no longer matter in this story — or to much of the MSM for that matter.

Update: Normally I’m not the litigious type, but I hope the woman who lives at this address sues Spike Lee’s ass off and wins.

Update II: What better way to prove that Zimmerman should be arrested than by ransacking a Walgreens?
