"Classy" is the way Ben Shapiro describes this: 'Bipartisan' Women's March Wishes Happy Birthday To Terrorist Who Murdered A Police Officer.
Non-feminists saw through them years ago. The women's movement may have been about equality in the minds of some in the early days. But it wasn't long before it became obvious: It wasn't about equality, it was all about power.
Anyway, this must have seemed like a huge faux pas to anyone who hoped to maintain the facade. The lefty group, Women’s March, tweeted out a greeting to terrorist-on-the-lam, Joanne Deborah Chesimard, aka, Assata Shakur. Here's what Shapiro had to say in the above linked article:
The tweet came complete with a picture of Shakur, with the slogan “IS IN THE STRUGGLE” pasted at the top. In May 1973, Shakur was wounded in a shootout with state troopers on the New Jersey Turnpike; one trooper was killed, execution-style. She was convicted of the murder, and sentenced to life in prison. In 1979, she escaped from prison and then finally fled to Cuba, where she has been living; she is still on the FBI Most Wanted Terrorist List, and there is a $2 million [sic] reward on her head. As David French points out at National Review:
All told, “from 1970 to 1984, the BLA was responsible for four bombings, four hijackings and 32 violent armed confrontations in the United States. Sixteen of those involved confrontations with law enforcement officers who were killed.” In other words, by every reasonable contemporary definition of terrorism, Shakur was a violent terrorist who belonged to a violent terrorist organization.
Shakur has become a hero to leftists because she rejects the morality of Western civilization — she was a member of the Black Liberation Army, a more violent splinter from the Black Panther Party.
The FBI's wanted poster for her lists several other names by which Assata Shakur is known. Meanwhile, some bounty hunter types should try to cash in on that $1,000,000 reward. But, of course, a federal judge would probably let her walk free if they grabbed her against her will, even in Cuba.
