The white supremacist that hunted and murdered Trayvon Martin because he was black and walking has filed a lawsuit against Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg for tweets they made on the anniversary of the young high school student death’s by the hands of George Zimmerman.
The right wing website WND reports:
“Both defendants, Buttigieg and Warren, are alleged in the complaint to have acted with actual malice, as it is widely known that Zimmerman was acquitted of murder based on self-defense,” the announcement said. “It is high time that the cheap and harmful use of the race card by politicians of all stripes be made to cease and desist,” commented Klayman.
“Their despicable 'race tactics' are not only causing great harm to persons such as my client George Zimmerman, but also are damaging relations between black and white Americans who are all brothers. The nation should applaud Mr. Zimmerman for taking a strong stand and pushing back against hack politicians like Buttigieg and Warren, who know no bounds of decency and frankly could obviously care less about whom they hurt in their quest to dishonesty use and manipulate black voters to win the 2020 Democrat presidential his announcement said.
The complaint itself explains the case is being brought against Buttigieg and Warren “for defamation with actual malice or at a minimum a reckless disregard for the truth.”
It explains Buttigieg posted a statement “to his 1,600,000 Twitter followers … 'Trayvon Martin would have been 25 today. How many 25th birthdays have been stolen from us by white supremacy, gun violence, prejudice, and fear?
Warren's was, “My heart goes out to @SybrinaFulton and Trayvon's family and friends. He should still be with us today. We need to end gun violence and racism. And we need to build a world where all of our children – especially young Black boys – can grow up safe and free.”
“The obvious intent of Buttigieg and Warren's Tweets is alleged race baiting, in an attempt to draw African American votes during this Democrat presidential primary season,” Klayman's announcement said.
The claim alleges the two “maliciously defamed” Zimmerman, using Martin's death “as a pretext to demagogue and falsely brand Zimmerman as a white supremacist and racist to their millions of Twitter followers.”
