RUSH: An entirely new perspective on this whole sordid incident was provided by Rachel Jeantel last night on CNN. Everybody’s been under the impression that Zimmerman was a racist, and that’s why he went after Trayvon. I went to great lengths yesterday, folks, to break this down and tell you what I think this was really all about. I’m not gonna repeat that but it is at RushLimbaugh.com. Essentially, it was about economics.
You’ve got a bunch of people in this community that are barely hanging on. They’ve worked very hard to get where they are and there are all kinds of robberies and things, and they’re just tired of being stolen from, and they’ve got a Neighborhood Watch and so forth. It’s about the Obama economy. But the media and everybody has been saying since this happened, “Zimmerman’s a white racist!”
