The Black Lives Matter movement is defending Fidel Castro and thanking him for protecting Assata Shakur, the cop-killing, domestic terrorist.
From Lukas Mikelionis, Heat Street:
The Black Lives Matter movement has come out in support of Fidel Castro, following his death on Friday, saying they must “come to the defense of El Comandante” and thanking him for safeguarding Assata Shakur, who’s on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list.It's a disgrace that the Black Lives Matter movement is propped up and legitimized by the Leftist media rather than exposed for what it really is.
The movement penned an article on Sunday titled “Lessons from Fidel: Black Lives Matter and the Transition of El Comandante” on the Medium platform where they eulogized the passing of the Cuban dictator. The article, which was not bylined, was Tweeted out by the closest thing there is to an official Black Lives Matter account and also posted on the movement’s semi-official Facebook page.
The article claims Castro’s death has caused “and overwhelming sense of loss, complicated by fear and anxiety.”
...The BLM movement is also also “particularly grateful” to Castro for harboring “Mama Assata Shakur, who continues to inspire us.” Shakur, whose real name is Joanne Chesimard, is currently on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list with a $1 million bounty on her head.
She was convicted in the U.S. of killing a New Jersey state trooper, assault and battery of a police officer. After she escaped from prison, Castro granted her asylum in Cuba in 1984.
It's a radical group. It's anti-police. It promotes lawlessness. It supports brutal dictators and finds a cop-killing, domestic terrorist inspiring.
That's a problem.
