'Kill Zimmerman' Twitter account launched

Dan Riehl writes at Big Government about a Twitter account that was created named "Kill Zimmerman," the Florida man who is alleged to have shot Trayvon Martin.

Barack Obama has remained silent as the usual suspects have been busy stirring up hate aimed at George Zimmerman, the Florida Hispanic involved in the shooting death of 17 year-old Trayvon Martin. Now the anger has taken a new twist, breaking out on Twitter with an account named "Kill Zimmerman." It features an image of Zimmerman in crosshairs.

After the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords, a political ad associated with Palin and featuring a cross-hairs focused on Gifford's District, the issue of the ad rose to the level of national debate. See ABC for more on that previous news. Perhaps they'll blame Palin for this latest use of a cross-hairs, as well.

As for the Twitter account, the individual behind the account is denouncing protests as coming from racists.

The account probably won't survive the day, but it is illustrative of the extreme level of hatred on the left generated by this tragedy. And, of course, the double standard of "civility" that the left constantly uses when whining about the political discourse in America.
