George Zimmerman sues Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg for $265M

He accuses them of attempting to garner black votes by defaming him.

FOX: George Zimmerman, the onetime neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted in the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida, is suing Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg for $265 million, claiming both 2020 Democratic presidential candidates defamed him in an attempt to “garner votes in the black community.”

The lawsuit filed in Polk County, Fla., Tuesday argues Warren and Buttigieg’s two separate tweets on Feb. 5, which would have been Martin’s 25th birthday, used the killing “as a pretext to demagogue and falsely brand Zimmerman as a white supremacist and racist to their millions of Twitter followers.”

Martin’s death sparked nationwide protests and largely helped launch the Black Lives Matter movement. Zimmerman, however, was acquitted in 2013 on all charges against him. His defense claimed he acted in self-defense by shooting Martin, an unarmed black teen, after the 17-year-old attacked him on his neighborhood watch shift, beating his head into the ground.

“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,” Buttigieg tweeted to his 1.6 million followers. The message garnered 42,000 likes, 13,300 replies and 6,600 retweets in just three days, the lawsuit states.

“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,” Warren tweeted to her 3.6 million followers on the same day, sharing four photos of Trayvon Martin as a small child, between the ages of 4 and 10. The message received 7,300 likes and 1,000 retweets in three days, in addition to national media coverage, the lawsuit states.

The lawsuit argued Warren and Buttigieg falsely tied Martin’s death to “gun violence,” a term that more appropriately describes the “reckless and indiscriminate use of illegally owned firearms.” It also claims the tweets defamed Zimmerman by implying he acted out of racism or white supremacy when he shot Martin. read more

  1. Good luck. I hope it works out successfully for him. Elizabeth Warren (1/1024th native 0bama), Pete Buttigieg (white 0bama) are both lying scum bags trying to stir up race division just like Obama did.

  2. Yes! Justice for White Hispanics everywhere!

    Seriously, good for him. He should sue the network that aired the edited version of his 911 call too.

  3. Hold up.
    Why in God’s name does anyone believe that Trayvon was this ‘good boi with a pocket full of skittles’ story?
    It has been discussed and disproved repeatedly.

    It’s just disgusting that the little thug/would-be-murderer (as he did smash Zimmerman’s skull into the pavement and would have continued to it he hadn’t been shot), is the face of innocent black kids? There are plenty of kids from Chicago and other inner cities th at are killed every day.
    You don’t need to use Trayvon as a faux victim. You’ve GOT your victims… but I guess if the perpetrator is black or Mexican gang member then they don’t wanna talk about it.

    It doesn’t make sense to me still- and it’s been EIGHT years. 😑

  4. “He should still be with us today” HAHAHA

    Yeah. Sucking down purple lean, casing neighborhoods, flashing his gold inlays & pistols and looking for trouble.

    Good luck George.

  5. chuffed-beyond-words – It sure does demonstrate the absolute corruption of the Media, the power of propaganda and Political Correctness doesn’t it? When something doesn’t make sense, look for an agenda!

  6. TRF-
    I know what you mean…
    Trayvon was the beginning of the worsening race relations, the anti white movement, under the Obama administration.

    I still don’t get why so many people believe their version of events though. That is what gets me all confused.

    I guess I’m giving too many the benefit of the doubt. I forget that so many just eat up what CNN or Fox or their favorite politicians tell them.

  7. I hope he is successful. At the very least his filing stopped Bloomberg, Sanders and the rest of the clown car from doing something similar.

  8. I have a KelTec PF9 handgun. A 9mm that is smaller than most .380’s (or 9mm short). Don’t carry it often, only when I have to have something extremely concealable.

    This is the same handgun George Zimmerman had.

    Hence why I refer to this one when someone asks “what’s that?”, I reply “The Trevon Martin Memorial Special”.

  9. Are they ever going to shut the hell up about a damn thug? All the good his parents could have done over his death, IF they had went and talked to black young men and tell them robbing and stealing will make them end up in a box. No though, they needed their trash cans full of cash. I doubt they gave a shit about their own kid until he was dead, so no reason for them to care about any other kids.

  10. Know what you mean,
    I have a Ktel Pocket Fisherman, untraceable.
    Bait with skittles, he would have been an easy hook.

  11. This whole affair has now been debunked. Remember Trayvon’s “girlfriend’, the one he was calling when he was dying that couldn’t read cursive, even thou she was going to jr college? Has been proven to be a fake, trayvon’s momma and whoever was his daddy have made millions perpetuating this whole falsehood, their legal team, all of them knew she was a fake ringer, as his real girlfriend refused to get involved, so they brought in the stacy wannabe and let her pretend to be trayvon’s lovelife, because they all look alike and stuff, no one would know the difference. But the state of Florida found out, and is pursuing all sorts of charges against these scam ghetto porch monkeys, and if that sounds racist too f’ing bad, as Zimmerman did not go looking for any of this, was defending himself, and they knew under barky and his AG cockholder they could be in the money. Payback and karma is a mean bitch, and they will soon know how much of one she can be.
