“In 1973, while wanted for multiple crimes from bank robbery to murder, Chesimard and two accomplices were pulled over for a tail-light violation on the New Jersey Turnpike. As the troopers were routinely questioning them, Chesimard in the passenger seat, and her pals opened up on the lawmen with some stemi-auto pistols (no word on whether these were properly registered.)”
(Humberto Fontova – Townhall) “I’m gonna actually have you participate with me in repeating some words from a leader by the name of Assata Shakur!” (NAACP V.P. Jamal Watkins opening the We The People conference this week.)
“(The conference speakers) included 2020 Democratic White House contenders Cory Booker, Julián Castro, Beto O’Rourke, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Jay Inslee and Kirsten Gillibrand.”
Now regarding that “leader” whose words seemed worthy of opening a conference showcasing the entire roster of the Democrat Party’s Most-Likely-to-Succeed”:
In May 2013 the FBI announced a $1 million reward for “information leading to the apprehension” of Joanne Chesimard (also known as Assata Shakur) who they named a “Most Wanted Terrorist.” Chesimard is the first woman to make the FBI’s list. The New Jersey State Police Dept., who also wants her, added another $1 million to the pot.
You see, amigos: Convicted cop-killer (of a New Jersey State-Trooper) and bona-fide “domestic terrorist” Chesimard (Assata Shakur) has been living in Cuba since 1984 as a Castro-coddled celebrity. But it’s not like bounty hunters can operate freely in a Stalinist country. So the $2 million was probably for show. Obama’s Justice Department was probably putting on a game face and saying: “Look Castro, we’re serious here! You better turn Shakur over, or…or–or ELSE!”
