Prior to February 2012, George Zimmerman was a liberal Democrat and civil rights activist who not only voted for Obama but campaigned for him. Yet, it’s mostly conservatives who defend him and believe he acted in self defense.
Another piece of irony is that Benjamin Crump, Ryan Julison, and the media made celebrities of George Zimmerman and other members of his family. They didn’t ask to be celebrities. It was forced upon them. I’m sure they wish they could return to being known by only the people they’ve personally met. Yet, I often see tweets by the very people who helped make them celebrities telling Robert Junior that he’s not a celebrity, as though he wants that status.
