Rush pointed out on his show today that in last night’s interview with Piers Morgan and Rachel Jeantel, she admitted that she told Trayvon Martin to run because she thought George Zimmerman was a gay rapist and it freaked Trayvon out. But Trayvon didn’t run and instead attacked Zimmerman which means he was a homophobe or gay basher. Rush says he thought this would have the left in knots by today:
UPDATE: Here is the actual transcript from CNN in case it’s hard to understand what Rachel said:
MORGAN: But you — but you felt that there was no doubt in your mind from what Trayvon was telling you on the phone about the creepy ass cracka and so on, that he absolutely believed that George Zimmerman, this man, you didn’t know who he was at the time, but this man, was pursuing him?
MORGAN: And he was freaked out by it?
JEANTEL: Yes. Definitely after I say may be a rapist, for every boy, for every man, every — who’s not that kind of way, seeing a grown man following them, would they be creep out? So you have to take it — as a parent, when you tell your child, when you see a grown person following you, run away, and all that.
Would you go stand there? You going to tell your child stand there? If you tell your child stand there, we’re going to see your child on the news for missing person.
UPDATE: It’s also worth noting that Trayvon was probably paranoid already from being on weed, so the thought of a ‘gay rapist’ chasing him may have sent him over the top. Good going Rachel Jeantel.
