Liberalism has a growing domestic terrorism problem.
A little over a month after a liberal activist opened fire on Republican lawmakers in a mass assassination attempt, Senate Democrats issued a public pledge of support to a radical liberal group under fire for honoring a cop-killer and domestic terrorist.
The Women’s March, already under fire for numerous ties to convicted murderers and terrorists, found itself at the center of controversy again when it sent out a Twitter message celebrating the July 16th birthday of domestic terrorist Assata Shakur.
That drew scathing criticism nationwide, including direct condemnation from CNN anchor Jake Tapper.
Then, in the midst of the national denunciation of the Women’s March, Senate Democrats came to their aid the next day, issuing a public statement of support for the group via Twitter.
So just who is Assata Shakur? And why is it simply evil for Senate Democrats to publicly stand with a cop-killer and domestic terrorist?
A member of the ultra-violent Black Liberation Army, Shakur was first arrested in April of 1971 for carrying out an armed robbery.
While out on bail for that robbery, she took part in the BLA’s May 1971 gunshot execution of New York Police Officers Joseph Piagentini and Waverly Jones, as well as an August 1971 bank robbery.
Now on the run as a violent terrorist and fugitive, she personally attempted to kill several New York City police officers in Decimeter of 1971 by throwing hand grenades into their patrol car. Two were injured in the terrorist attack. Several weeks later, on January 26, 1972 she shot, and wounded another police officer who tried to write her a traffic ticket.
Two days later, on Jan. 28, 1972, she took part in the brutal execution of NYPD officers Gregory Foster and Rocco Laurie.
In January of 1973, Shakur ambushed and attempted to kill four more New York City area police officers.
She was finally apprehended in May 1973, after ambushing and murdering a New Jersey state trooper. She was wounded in the firefight and captured after a 36-hour search.
After 10 indictments and seven trials, Shakur was convicted in 1977 on two counts of murder and sentenced to life in prison. She escaped and fled to Communist Cuba, where she support the terrorist regime.
She was placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Terrorists list in 2013. There is currently a $2 million reward for her capture.
But she’s not the only domestic terrorist the Women’s March praises and emulates.
The Women’s March was founded by, among others, two domestic terrorists who wrote a manifesto calling for a “Day without a Woman” on March 8th in order to inspire a “new wave of militant feminist struggle.”
Did you catch that? Militant — not peaceful. But it makes sense considering that one of the manifesto co-authors is a convicted terrorist:
The document was co-authored by, among others, Rasmea Yousef Odeh, a convicted terrorist. Odeh, a Palestinian, was convicted in Israel in 1970 for her part in two terrorist bombings, one of which killed two students while they were shopping for groceries. She spent 10 years in prison for her crimes. She then managed to become a US citizen in 2004 by lying about her past (great detective work, INS: Next time, use Google) but was subsequently convicted, in 2014, of immigration fraud for the falsehoods. However, she won the right to a new trial (set for this spring) by claiming she had been suffering from PTSD at the time she lied on her application. Oh, and in her time as a citizen, she worked for a while as an ObamaCare navigator.
A second co-author of the manifesto is Angela Davis, a Stalinist professor and outspoken supporter of the Black Panthers. You may remember her for being acquitted in a 1972 trial after three guns she purchased were used in a courtroom shootout that resulted in the death of a judge.
Someone ought to sit down and calculate the number of people killed by Women’s March terrorists. Between Skaur, Odeh and Davis it’s at least eight.
