George Zimmerman Paints Confederate Flag to Sell at 'Muslim-Free' Gun Shop
A gun store in Florida is selling prints of the Confederate flag made by George Zimmerman.
Florida Gun Supply is selling off the 24”x18” prints on their website for $50. Each person who buys a print will then be entered into a raffle to win the original painting.
The website says it "could be worth up to $100,000."
Half of the proceeds will go to Zimmerman.
The other half will go to shop owner Andy Hallinan, who is currently facing a federal discrimination lawsuit filed by the Florida chapter Council on American-Islamic Relations.
The suit was filed after he declared his shop to be a “Muslim-Free Zone” in July.
The suit asks the court to grant an injunction against the shop, prohibiting it from discriminating against Muslims or instituting any policies or practices that discriminate or segregate people on the basis of religion.
Zimmerman spoke to the store about his idea for the painting, saying: "The first flag I painted on this canvas was an American Flag, but decided to repaint over it with the Confederate Flag when I heard Andy was getting sued by CAIR. The 2nd flag I painted was the Battle Flag - which we need in America in order to protect the first."
Zimmerman and Hallinan spoke in a mini-documentary for the store called “Cultural Cleansing & Bias Media = TIME FOR CHANGE.”
In the video, the duo walks around a pier smoking cigars and discussing the problems with American media and leadership.
The money from the painting "will go to support their legal funds, living expenses, and advancing their mission to change the country," according to the store's website.
