Human skunk geyser George Zimmerman reacted to the shooting of two newscasters on live TV in Virginia Wednesday by tweeting a rant for his thousands of bigoted followers. If there was ever any doubt that Zimmerman is a disgusting racist and bigot, this should put those doubts firmly to rest.

Pansy Fester lee Flanagan, too much of a daisy to deal w/racism. Murders 2 whites. Hate crime, 100%. Racist Obama says nothing condeming.

Zimmerman came out swinging, calling the shooter, “Pansy” an apparent reference to the shooter reportedly identifying as gay. The killer allegedly wrote a suicide note saying that he’d been the victim of discrimination for being black and gay at the news station where he had worked. But coworkers reported that the shooter had been difficult to work with due to anger problems. While it is possible that he experienced discrimination, if he had chronic rage issues, that seems more immediately relevant to him plotting to kill two coworkers on live television and then shoot himself.

Zimmerman wanted President Barack Obama to condemn the shooting. The implication is that Obama, being black, is somehow responsible for a black killer.

Zimmerman was keeping an eye on the clock. Zimmerman, whose Twitter avatar is a Confederate flag that he finger painted, called the murderer a “Black [Piece Of Shit].” The President still wasn’t operating on Zimmerman’s schedule.

Obama finally issued a statement, and Zimmerman hated it.

The President pointed out the pretty basic fact that more Americans die of gun-related incidents than die of terrorism. Even in the year 2001, when thousands died from terrorism, many times more died from gun violence. The US is now averaging more than one mass shooting per day in 2015. The FBI defines a mass shooting as 3 or more people killed in a single shooting incident. As of Wednesday, August 26th, there had been 247 mass shootings, and 238 days in 2015.

Zimmerman responded to President Obama’s statement by calling him an “Ignorant Baboon” for pointing out that fact. White supremacists have been using primate-related language and imagery to describe Obama, and his family, since before he was president. It’s a trope with a long history in American racism. It raises the possibility that Zimmerman may be frequenting white power media sites.

Zimmerman doubled down, referring to the President as a “worthless son of a bitch.” Somehow Zimmerman got Obama confused with George W. Bush, because he referred to him as the worst president in American history.

Zimmerman kept grinding his axe against President Obama. During the Zimmerman trial, Obama said, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” White supremacists have used that quote as a rallying cry, along the lines of, “Remember the Alamo!” ever since. Zimmerman apparently took it personally. Three years later, he’s still whining about it, even though he’s gotten away with quite a lot since then.

Zimmerman received a lot of flack. One concerned tweeter told Zimmerman that taunting Black Lives Matter activists wouldn’t end well, and Zimmerman vaguely threatened them.

Some people asked him what it feels like to be in hiding and looking over his shoulder all the time. He signed off from the exchange by taunting them, posting a selfie of him lounging at the pool with a cigar.
