George Zimmerman in court, June 24, 2013
If this is your hero, try harder.
Yeah, um, no.
In an attempt to outdo Sean Hannity’s efforts to turn George Zimmerman into a hero, WorldNetDaily’s Jack Cashill is now writing a book that paints the killer as a conservative idol.
Let's not, shall we? If you've devoted any significant time whatsoever into writing an actual book attempting to turn ol' Quickdraw Zimmerman into a hero for your movement, you have my pity. Doubling down on the effort even after the man proves to be very not right in the head, though—even among crackpots, there ought to be a lower bound. Cut your losses and just put out a calendar of kittens holding guns; that'll sell a hell of a lot more copies than your George Zimmerman fan fiction.
Cashill even blames two recent allegations of domestic abuse, including claims of violence from Zimmerman’s estranged wife and girlfriend, on the media.
He was a good man, until the media started hounding him for killing a teenager. Then he started waving guns around irresponsibly.
“If I Had A Son” tells how for the first time in the history of American jurisprudence, a state government, the U.S. Department of Justice, the White House, the major media, the entertainment industry and the vestiges of the civil rights movement conspired to put an innocent man in prison for the rest of his life.
That's the title? That's the premise? Oh, shut the hell up already, you freak. I am personally going to hide an RFID chip in every last copy of your stupid-ass conspiracy book so that the government can track everyone who buys it. You have my word on that. It's FEMA camps for everyone, you little shits.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
