Pat Robertson Defends Zimmerman Because Trayvon Wore Hoodie (Video)
On "The 700 Club" yesterday, Pat Robertson defended George Zimmerman and implied that Trayvon Martin looked like a criminal because he wore a hoodie.
Robertson started off by attacking the media for sometimes showing pictures of Martin when he was 12.
“He was fully formed young African-American male," said Robertson, noted RightWingWatch.org (video below). "They showed him as a little boy, like 12-year-old pictures.”
The media also showed numerous pictures and videos of Martin at age 17, which is still considered a minor.
Robertson also recalled how Zimmerman confirmed to the 911 operator that Martin was a "black male," but was upset that NBC News accurately reported: "Zimmerman says he's following somebody, says it's a black male."
700 Club co-host Terry Meeuwsen recalled how the 911 operator told Zimmerman not to follow Martin.
"The 911 operator kept saying to him, 'Don't go, don't go. Someone is coming.' You just can't have people doing that."
However, Robertson disagreed.
"There’s been some crime in this area and the criminals were wearing these hoods so it’s one of those things,” Robertson said.
If Robertson is correct in his logic, then students at his own CBN University would be fair game to be shot for wearing hoodies as well.
