The Women’s March, part of the “Resistance” that has emerged in the era of President Trump, has a knack for championing convicted cop killers. The group, which recently went on a 17-mile march in Washington, D.C. against the NRA, declared its love for Assata Shakur on Twitter.
Shakur, also known as Joanne Deborah Chesimard, is currently on the FBI’s Most Wanted list for murdering a New Jersey police officer in 1977. She escaped prison two years later and is now hiding in Cuba. What a perfect person to celebrate!
Condemning cop killers is something upon which I hope both Republicans and Democrats can find consensus. Why, then, CNN’s Jake Tapper wondered, aren’t any progressives speaking out against the march?
