Surprise, Surprise, Surprise: George Zimmerman Stoled His Inspirational Flag 'Painting' From A Stock Image

News

Nope, it's not Jasper Johns Day on Wonkette -- that there, courtesy of an anonymous Wonkette reader, is a montage of 1) George Zimmerman's"hand painted artwork" that is currently hovering at a high bid of $99,966.00 on the Ebay, 2) a popular "waving flag" image from the interwebs, and 3) a fancy-schmancy overlay of item 1 on item 2, which is the kind of thing that can be done by a smart reader who actually knows Photoshop. (You can tell Yr Dok Zoom didn't do this, because it is not MS-Paint, it looks good, and there's no pony.) So while it looks like New York Magazine broke this story before Yr Wonkette did, we would just like to point out that their lame story only has a link to the stock image, not a nifty overlay by an actual person who knows their way around the graphics, so there.


Our tipster, who prefers to remain anonymous, wrote to say that since she works in a job what involves veterans outreach, she handles a lot of flag graphics, and she immediately recognized the flag in Zimmerman's painting. Based on the one published pic of his "artwork," she opines that "At best this was some sort of 'paint by number' scenario, which is fine, but it sure as hell is not the scenario Zimmerman describes on his ebay questions page:

Q: What is the medium; oil or acrylic? Thanks

A: Thanks for your question, The paint was donated to me by a great friend (J.S.), as far as I know it is regular household latex paint. I know its not the fanciest, but it is what we had and I needed to put these visions onto the blank canvas as soon as possible. Your friend, GZ @therealGeorgeZ

Yep, blank canvas. You know, like pretty much every other aspect of George Zimmerman's credibility.

Thanks for your tip, anonymous reader, and we'll let you guys know if Mr. Zimmerman gets back to our question about the amazing similarities between that and "hand painted artwork by me, George Zimmerman."

ProPublica released a recording yesterday of children in a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detention facility crying for their parents after being subjected to the tender mercies of the New Cruelty.

The children are distraught, sobbing, inconsolable (not that the Border Patrol agents seem especially interested in consoling them). As ProPublica notes, "They scream 'Mami' and 'Papá' over and over again, as if those are the only words they know." You do not want to listen. But maybe you must.


One Border Patrol agent makes a very amusing joke as he hears all the children crying: "Well, we have an orchestra here [...] What's missing is a conductor."

Can anyone doubt that SS guards made similar jokes as children were unloaded from boxcars?

Mark Sanford is all mopey because he just lost his cushy Congress job after Donald Trump said mean things about him on Twitter. This was not the expected ending of a distinguished career, which involved lying to his constituents as governor about his whereabouts because he was conducting a clandestine affair.
