Zimmerman attorney requests chat with blogger from pro-Zimmerman site "The Conservative Treehouse"

It isn’t every day that a blogger gets an email from an attorney in a high profile murder case. But according to one supporter who frequents a conservative, pro-Zimmerman website called The Conservative Treehouse, Mark O’Mara offered more than a form email. He requested a chat.

O’Mara, who took over the case after the previous attorneys quit, has not always gotten applause from Zimmerman supporters for his handling of the case. The “Treepers,” as the users of the site call themselves, have faulted his genteel style and his arguments at the June 29 bond hearing. They seethed when O’Mara described the fatal confrontation between the 28-year-old neighborhood watch coordinator and the Miami teen, who had been visiting Sanford with his father — as a “horrible intersection of two young men’s lives” that “ended in tragedy.” And they demanded he go after Trayvon Martin’s reputation, his parents, and what they call the “scheme team” — the attorneys representing Martin’s family.

“Well, I think he needs to verbally attack Trayvon Martin more, for one, regardless of how the media disagrees. I think he did a good job of explaining why the 7/11 video is relevant,” was a common complaint, from someone calling himself Lou da Jew. “He needs to ask how it must feel to get bashed in the head with a slab of concrete.

But it was unhappiness with O’Mara’s tactics at the June 29 second bond hearing, after which the judge imposed a $1 million bond, that prompted one Zimmerman fan, calling themselves GZtheCourageous, to voice their complaints to O’Mara in a June 30th email, sent with the subject line: Disappointed! “To be honest,” GZTheCourageous wrote. “many of us are disappointed watching you in the second hearing with Judge Lester. I personally felt you were whispering the strong points, and rather loud and repetitious on the weak points.” It goes on to point out the diligent work Treepers have done researching the case, and combing through discovery and news articles to ferret out information that will help free Zimmerman. “The treehouse think tank has done much research on the case from the beginning. But they began a thread discussing your approach at the second hearing.”

2. Wow

I just checked out that Conservative Treehouse site. Is that the place people kicked off of FreeRepublic go?

I'm putting it on my list to check out during the trial--should be interesting to see their take on things.

3. theconservativetreehouse.com

Longtime lurker, first time commenter. Found this thread doing a goog search on who is the admin at theconservativetreehouse.com

the treepers are patting themselves on the back for sliming Martin. For the life of me, I can't figger out who's behind that site. Anonymous Domain Registration / Hosted @ wordpress.com

Looking at their front page posts today and the language on the "About" page, $10 sez theconservativetreehouse.com is a Klan front.

Am I wrong?
