Even in the cesspool that serves as our entertainment industry, could anyone descend to a lower level that Spike Lee, who subjected an elderly couple to terror by retweeting their address in an incompetent attempt to sic violent mobs on George Zimmerman? Roseanne Barr could:
The comedian Roseanne Barr [Wednesday] night tweeted the home address of George Zimmerman’s parents to her 110,000-plus Twitter followers, only to delete the posting after “not fully understanding that it was private not public.” …
Barr, who deleted her tweet in the face of criticism from some Twitter followers, noted that she first thought it “was good to let ppl know that no one can hide anymore.” That stance quickly changed, with Barr reporting, “But vigilante-ism is what killed Trayvon. I don’t support that.”
But while Barr deleted her original posting, the Zimmermans’s address remains in messages in her Twitter stream. Barr’s original tweet was a retweet of a post by a new Twitter user who appears devoted to disseminating the Zimmermans’s address and phone number, as well as contact information for Joseph Oliver, who has made numerous TV appearances in support of Zimmerman, a friend and former coworker.
Still, the entertainer left open the possibility that she would again circulate the Seminole County address of Zimmerman’s parents. “If Zimmerman isn’t arrested I’ll rt his address again.” She added, “maybe go 2 his house myself.”
There is no indication that Zimmerman, who is reportedly in hiding, is holed up in his parents’s residence.
The point is to inflict terror by directing mobs of Trayvon Martin types toward Zimmerman’s parents. It’s not enough for liberals that Zimmerman has to hide as if he were the criminal.
Speaking of terror, the “mainstream” media released the identity of a 13-year-old witness who saw Zimmerman lying on the grass calling for help. It worked; his mother has been terrorized into discrediting her son’s eyewitness report. She is probably trying to prevent Al Sharpton’s army of race-obsessed Neanderthals from turning their house into Freddy’s Fashion Mart, where eight people were killed.
That’s is the kind of country we live in now, compliments of enlightened liberals.
