The answer is in, and it’s, “No.” Not if the the victim is George Zimmerman, who was defending himself from a brutal attack by young career criminal Trayvon Martin when one shot from a Kel-Tec .saved George’s life — and may have saved scores or hundreds of others from being robbed, injured or even killed by taking Trayvon off the thug track.
George would like to sell this gun, as it was tied up so long by the Justice Department — even after his acquittal on trumped up charges — that he replaced it. But George has a problem: like it or not he’s a public figure, and the publicity in his case is based entirely on media lies, lies so virulent that another thug, energized by this media malpractice, has taken shots at him since. So when he put the gun up for auction last week, the anti-gun left and the media (but we repeat ourselves) came unhinged.
The Zimmerman trial was a high point to date of dishonest reporting by the national media. Media tactics included a news blackout on Trayvon’s record of drug use and property and violent crime; use of photos 5, 7 and 10 years old in lieu of more recent ones, all of which showed the little darling with gang tats, smoking dope, handling guns or all of the above; and, durin led to a hyperpublic trial — and then, to the shock of the media and their followers, go George Zimmerman’s acquittal. Because the judge and jury had to consider the actual evidence in the case, not the “facts” that the media made up, this caught people reading the New York Times or watching CNN completely by surprise.
The Times hated George so much they made up a new race for him, “White hispanic,” after initially selling the half-Peruvian-mestizo guy as “white.”
As a result, George Zimmerman may be the most hated man in America today. The media and their verbally violent fellow travelers attacked two successive gun auction sites, driving the gun off both sites (and making at least one delete George’s account).
GunBroker was the first to cave. Predictably, folding to the SJWs did not get the company peace, instead seeing the back-down as proof of GunBroker’s evil. Actually, it was more proof that GunBroker’s managers are spineless. They said:
Late last night, George Zimmerman created a listing on our web site for the gun from the Trayvon Martin case four years ago. Mr. Zimmerman alerted news organizations that began reporting on the listing first thing this morning.
Listings on the GunBroker.com web site are user-generated, exactly like social media posts. Mr. Zimmerman never contacted anyone at GunBroker.com prior to or after the listing was created and no one at GunBroker.com has any relationship with Zimmerman. Our site rules state that we reserve the right to reject listings at our sole discretion, and have done so with the Zimmerman listing.
We want no part in the listing on our web site or in any of the publicity it is receiving.
GunBroker.com prides itself in being a safe and legal way to buy and sell firearms online in full compliance with all Federal, State, and local laws. GunBroker.com proudly supports the Second Amendment rights of the American public.
GunBroker.com will not be fielding press inquiries regarding this matter.
As power users of GunBroker, we’re disappointed in this quivering collapse into cuckoldry, and therefore, we’ll be buying our next ten firearms outside of GunBroker, in light of their weakness on the 1st and 2nd Amendments. Let them sell guns to their pals in the Black Lives Matter criminal lobby. We’re pretty sure we spend a lot more on hardware for our collection than a entire prison wing full of Black Lives Matter cases spend on their Jennings and Raven cop-poppers, but maybe that’s the market Gun Broker wants to be in.
They may not get this, yet, but throwing the point-and-shriek swarms of the media a scalp does not appease them. It energizes them. Nothing GunBroker does is acceptable to the media, and they’ll be back for another scalp. Soon enough, the strategy of just outrunning the slowest guy leaves you with no slower guy behind you, just the ravenous wolf. Then what?
This time, the flying monkeys lifted and shifted their fires to the next auction host, United Gun Group. We’d never heard of United Gun Group before, and based on their owner Todd Underwood’s commitment to the rule of law and principle displayed here, we don’t think they’re likely to be around long enough to be worth getting to know.
As an organization, we stand by the rule of law and, while no laws have been broken, we do not feel like it is in the best interest of the organization to continue to host this sale on our platform.
Our mission is to esteem the 2nd amendment and provide a safe and secure platform for firearms enthusiasts and law-abiding citizens; our association with Mr. Zimmerman does not help us achieve that objective.
Good, sign up Travyon Martin and his ilk, then, because you don’t deserve us as buyers on your United Anti Gun Group site. We’d say we’d dance (or something) on your grave, but to be brutally honest we didn’t notice when you arrived, and we probably won’t notice when you go.
You might question our rhetoric, and you might question George in his implacable refusal to allow the media, the BLM criminal lobby, and the left (threedundant, we know) to define him. But he knows instinctively what Day has worked out theoretically and empirically in SJWs Always Lie and in the free excerpt that is Day’s guide to surviving an SJW swarm: never apologize, never back down. Had the managers of GunBroker, or the dunderheaded Underwood read the document, they might have found some traces of calcium along their spinal cords.
An example of the media reporting on this issue illustrates their complete disinterest in reporting facts. Gideon Resnick, a liberal Democrat and a supporter of the Black Lives Matter criminal movement, has a few opinions in his alleged news story at The Daily Beast (formerly Newsweek, before an unwise investor bought the failing propaganda mag for $1). Some of Gideon’s points:
- Zimerman is “the disgusting man who killed Travyon Martin.”
- Zimmerman’s firearm is “a gun he used to kill a teenage boy,” which is about like saying the SS used Zyklon B for fumigation.
- The “asking price is more than $65 million,” which shows that Gid doesn’t understand what an auction is. If Daddy’s trust fund buys you everything, which is typical for Beastweek reporters, you tend to be financially ignorant.
- “The killer of Martin flaunts the gun as a valuable item tied to history.”
- “…an opportunistic chance to hold on to history, as Zimmerman would garishly like to present it.”
- “…the gun…” [is potentially] “a source of racial intimidation or harm.”
Resnick managed to find — don’t they always? — some knob who “supports the 2nd amendment, but…” wants to buy the Zimmerman gun and, presumably, execute the deodand for the crime of the martyrdom of Saint Trayvon. The attention-seeker is a “lifelong gun collector”, he tells Resnick, who somehow can’t raise more than $5k by liquidating his savings. What’s he been collecting, Bubba customs?
“Most violent racists don’t have two dollars to rub together,” the media-whoring broke guy says. Well, he would know. You don’t get to “innocent Trayvon Martin” unless you depart from the full-on race-trumps-everything position.
No doubt if we searched on that guy we’d find him all over Americans for Responsible Solutions, the American Hunters and Shooters Association (remember them) and other Bloomberg-funded “we respect the 2nd Amendment, but” phony pro-gun gun-ban groups. He isn’t worth it; he’s just some fluid stain who wants to be on the news.
In the end, Martin and Brown are the same sickness that infests our Nation. It’s not a racial thing, it’s a mindset thing. Thugs are thugs, and we’ve allowed the kids to adopt that mindset without understanding the realistic repercussions of employing that mindset with those of us who won’t tolerate it. Whether because of a feeling of responsibility for community, or a duty given because of employment, Zimmerman and Wilson stood up to Thugs, and the thugs died. Good riddance to societal parasites.
