At Francis THE BAD LIAR Rubin's latest article on Trayvon, George Thomas proves they're no idiot like a whoring idiot.
No, you stupid idiot, the 911 tapes do not show that at all. In fact, Bob Somerby was just covering this lie today at The Daily Howler:
How bad was O’Donnell’s program last night? Following Blow, there was the statement from Natalie Jackson, one of the Martin family’s lawyers. After Blow finished blowing his nose, Jackson interrupted with a blatant, but scripted, misstatement of fact:
JACKSON: The point is—and that’s the point that is getting lost. The point that’s getting lost is that George Zimmerman was told to stay in his car. When he got out of his car, he had a 9 millimeter, as he chased down, according to his own words, Trayvon Martin.As Jackson surely knows, Zimmerman was not “told to stay in his car” that night. He was out of his car, already following Martin on foot, when the police dispatcher told him, “We don’t need you to do that.”
Trayvon Martin was where he was supposed to be. He was not committing any crime. And he ended up, after an encounter with George Zimmerman, with a bullet wound in his chest. That is for a jury.
And that is, that is why— and this case must go to a jury. You have an unarmed teenager where he was supposed to be.
Did Zimmerman head back to his car at that point, as he has apparently said? Like you, we don’t know. But the story works better if Jackson lies, saying he was ordered to stay in his car.
And so, she lied to you last night—unless she’s a total incompetent.
George Thomas is a total incompetent.
