George Zimmerman Speaks: Killing Trayvon Was ‘God’s Plan,’ Wishing He Lived is ‘Blasphemous’
George Zimmerman used his divorce lawyer to give an interview and speak out about his murder trial and the public’s reaction.
“I feel that not is the perfect time to speak my mind without fear of retaliation by the president, the attorney general, the federal government, etc.” Zimmerman said. “Initially I was extremely alleviated. Quickly that turned into realization that the Department of Justice finding that there was no basis to pursue [federal] charges was just the beginning of a journey — my personal journey — to correct the wrongs that the federal government did. To ensure that it never happens to any innocent American ever again.”
Zimmerman said he has a “clear conscience” about what happened.
When asked if he wished his encounter with Trayvon Martin turned out differently, Zimmerman said, “I believe God has his plans, and for me to second-guess them would be hypocritical, almost blasphemous.”
He then turned back to “Barack Hussein Obama,” claiming he was the most unfair to him “by far.”
“President Obama held his Rose Garden speech stating if I had a son he would look like Trayvon,” Zimmerman said. “To me, that was clearly a dereliction of duty pitting Americans against each other solely based on race.”
“He took what should have been a clear-cut self-defense matter, and still to this day on the anniversary of the incident he held a ceremony at the White House inviting the Martin-Fulton family and stating that they should take the day to reflect upon the fact that all children’s lives matter,” Zimmerman continued. “Unfortunately for the president, I’m also my parent’s child and my life matters as well. And for him to make incendiary comments as he did and direct the Department of Justice to pursue a baseless prosecution he by far overstretched, overreached, even broke the law in certain aspects to where you have an innocent American being prosecuted by the federal government which should never happen.”
Zimmerman insisted that instead of “making racially charged comments and pitting American against American,” Obama should have told people not to “rush to judgement.”
“It’s up to God and I put it all in his hands and I do have faith that whatever he has planned out for me is what’s best for me,” Zimmerman concluded. “So whatever he’s determined whatever he has planned out for me I am along for the ride and I just hope to be strong enough to see his will be done.”
