Remember this story from the joke news site The Onion last week?
"George Zimmerman Wins Florida State Lottery"
Well guess what? ABC branch of the government "news" propaganda outlet has topped The Onion with this story that immediately enters the bullshit charts top-10 with a bullet:
George Zimmerman Emerged From Hiding for Truck Crash Rescue
I put the SAME PICTURE from The Onion for the ABC "news" story, too. Why not? It's worse than The Onion story!
Let's see: no names of the victims (they don't want to reward Zimmerman?) (update: ABC has now said the family was the Gerstle family), no video or pictures even though the government is videoing & tapping every single thing we do. The crash occurred at the intersection of 2 highways, no less. So I'm really sure there's no cameras there (sarcastic).
So which of the above articles is the JOKE NEWS SITE and which one isn't?
ANSWER: THEY'RE BOTH JOKE NEWS SITES!!!
Here's the story cut/paste, before it's MIA:
George Zimmerman, who has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, emerged to help rescue a family who was trapped in an overturned vehicle, police said today. (bd: he "emerged" just in time to save a family from an overturned truck: SUPER-ZIM!!! If he's not shooting black guys with skittles, he's saving families from overturned trucks!)
Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of Dana and Mark Gerstle and their two children, who were trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had rolled over after traveling off the highway in Sanford, Fla. at approximately 5:45 p.m. Thursday, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said in a statement. (bd: what is the name of the other man, and what is the name of the family SUPER-ZIM saved? Originally, the name of the family wasn't in the article, now it's the Gerstle family. Maybe so many people were commenting that the family wasn't named, ABC decided to name them. Can we speak to the Gerstle family? How did they know it was George Zimmerman? Did he say: "HI, I'M GEORGE ZIMMERMAN FROM THAT BIG TRIAL IN THE "NEWS" I just emerged from hiding to save you"? Or did the cops make it a point to say SUPER-ZIM was there, but not name the other guy who was there. Maybe the cops said, as SUPER-ZIM was going off into the sunset into hiding again, "See that man who just saved you? That was George Zimmerman!" Why does SUPER-ZIM get all the credit, and not the other guy? If this whole thing really ever happened btw... Don't SUPER-ZIM and the other guy want some kind of award or something, for saving this family? Or was it reward enough that he got away with murder?)
The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route Route 46, police said. The crash site is less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot Martin. (bd: I'm sure there are no cameras there, on the intersection of 2 highways!)
By the time police arrived, two people - including Zimmerman - had already helped the family get out of the overturned car, the sheriff's office said. No one was reported to be injured. (bd: how convenient, of course: it all occurred before "the cops" got there. SUPER-ZIM beat the cops to the scene, like SPIDERMAN.)
Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after speaking with the deputy, police said. (bd: SUPER-ZIM "emerged" from hiding, didn't witness the crash, but yet got there before the cops got there.)
It's the first known sighting of Zimmerman since he left the courtroom following his controversial acquittal last week on murder charges for the death of Martin. Zimmerman, 29, shot and killed Martin, 17, in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26, 2012. (bd: the "first known sighting", like the Loch Ness Monster; as the story goes, the masked "SUPER-ZIM" emerged, first known sighting, to save the day...then went back into hiding. The first known ZIM-SIGHTING...and think of it: just in time to rescue a family of 4 from an overturned truck! How lucky!)
Bottom line: is anyone buyin' that George Zimmerman was in hiding since the trial verdict, then emerged from hiding exactly just in time to save a family from an overturned truck less than a mile from where he shot Trayvon Martin? That certainly is nearly the same odds of The Onion story of Zimmerman hitting the lottery! If you believe that, then you have blind (religious?) belief in proven liars - the mainstream media.
I might consider believing it only if:
- - They show pictures and video of the event, as there had to be cameras recording it.
- - Interviews with the Gerstle family.
- - Interview with the other guy on the scene with Zimmerman helping the Gerstles out of the truck
If those things occur, I might begin to believe this far-fetched Onion-like story (might). But with zero evidence, I will not blindly take their word. The mainstream media has earned all of our mistrust in them. Keep in mind, this is ABC "news" reporting this. And they and the other mainstream "news" networks love to keep divisive stories in the "news". And this looks like a perfect follow-up story to keep the original flop in the "news" which didn't cause the widespread race riots they were hoping for.
We now live in times in which we cannot believe one single thing in the mainstream "news" without solid evidence. We cannot blindly take the word of the mainstream media anymore. It has been proven over and over and over again that they lie all the time. And they lie for the 1% wealthy and powerful.
So do you believe Zimmerman emerged from hiding and his first sighting after this huge media trial was to save a family of 4 from an overturned truck? Really?
What's up next to keep the Zimmerman story in the "news"?
Let me try my hand at this. I'll pretend I'm a mainstream media "news" network and make up some evidence-free stories:
"ZIMMERMAN RECOVERS BIN LADEN'S BODY WHILE SCUBA-DIVING"
"ZIMMERMAN HITS LOTTERY WHILE SCUBA-DIVING TO RECOVER BIN LADEN'S BODY AND THEN SAVES FAMILY FROM OVERTURNED TRUCK ON THE WAY OUT OF THE WATER TO COLLECT HIS LOTTERY WINNINGS"
"ZIMMERMAN STORMS BIN LADEN COMPOUND AHEAD OF TEAM 6, SHOOTS BIN LADEN, AND THROWS HIS BODY INTO THE SEA...ACCORDING TO ISLAMIC LAW"
"ZIMMERMAN FINDS LANDING GEAR BETWEEN BUILDINGS OF GROUND ZERO FROM THE 911 BOEINGS THAT DISAPPEARED"
"ZIMMERMAN CONVERTS TO ISLAM"
"ZIMMERMAN THWARTS IRAQI WOMEN WITH DOWNS SYNDROME SUICIDE BOMBERS"
How did I do???
UPDATE: some other reviews of this BULLSHIT story are coming in -
Addicting Information: Now, color me cynical, but this is just a little too convenient for comfort to me. Here we have a man who is supposedly so afraid of death threats from a nation of outraged people that he cannot come out of hiding. He desperately needs to start rebuilding his reputation and, miraculously, he just happens to be in the right spot at the right time to save a family from a car accident? Details are scant at the moment and if they stay that way, that will be far more suspicious than a kid walking home with Skittles and iced tea.Addicting Information: PR Stunt Or Dumb Luck?
