Taaffe Tries to Pretend He’s Not Racist

You may recall that Frank Taaffe was one of the George Zimmerman’s most vocal supporters. Now he’s trying to backtrack and say that he has changed his view of Zimmerman and concluded that he really did racially profile Trayvon Martin when he stalked and killed him.

Frank Taaffe says he now believes Zimmerman should have been found guilty in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

He was once one of George Zimmerman’s most outspoken advocates, but now former neighborhood watch volunteer, Frank Taaffe says his opinion about Zimmerman’s not guilty verdict has changed.

“What I know of George and his tendencies and also my opinion is that he racially profiled Trayvon Martin that night because if that had been a white kid on a cell phone, walking through our neighborhood, he wouldn’t have stayed on him the way he did and that’s a fact and I believe that in my heart,” said Taaffe…

But today, Taaffe claims he just wants to clear his conscience, “I can only ask for the country to forgive me and today I believe that he racially profiled him based on the color of his skin. Reporter: Some people may wonder what does Frank Taaffe have to gain by doing this? Are you working on a book? No book. A TV show? No. I’m just working on me right now and getting right with God.”

What is incredible to me is that nowhere in that local news article is there any mention of the fact that Taaffe didn’t just support George Zimmerman, but that he is a racist with a radio show on a white supremacist radio network on which they have exchanges like this:

Transcript: Caller: I think I did use the name Oprah Winfrey, so would Oprah Winfrey qualify as a nigger to you?

Joseph Adams: To me she wouldn’t.

Frank Taaffe: I think she is.

Joseph Adams: Frank you go first, then.

Frank Taaffe: “Yeah, she’s a nigger because she keeps spewing out all that bullshit. She goes over to Switzerland and she says that the lady didn’t want to share a handbag because she thought that she couldn’t afford it, and she keeps just doing what she’s doing. She keeps stirring the pot. She keeps trying to promote her boy Obama. You know, Obama could do no wrong. You know, it’s birds of a feather, they flock together and stick together, and to me, she’s a nigger. Oprah Winfrey’s a nigger. She’s a nigger.”

If he isn’t repenting of his own racism and white supremacist views, no one should even think about taking this bullshit seriously.

    Many racists have assured me that the n-word isn’t racist at all. It just means a ‘stupid and lazy person’ regardless of skin color. The fact that every black person on earth meets this definition, in the eyes of a racist, is just a happy coincidence.

    Translation: nobody has offered me money for my story yet, so here I am, trying to drum up my own business.

    Probably just found out that Zimmerman was half-Hispanic. So that was just S**c on N****r crime, unlike real cases of justified stand-your-ground like that of Michael Dunn, convicted of murder of a black kid in his car because they were playing ‘rap crap’ music.

    . . . I believe that in my heart,” said [Frank] Taaffe.

    I think this is one of the most effective signals someone can deliver validating they’re an ignorant delusional moron.

    Just a gentle reminder, yes, it’s definitely wise to be skeptical of this dude’s motives, but people really do sometimes change. Only what he does in the future will tell if he’s for real or not.
