Women's March Praises Terrorist Who Killed Cop as "Sign of Resistance"


Women's March Group tweeted out praise and happy birthday wishes for Assata Shakur, a wanted terrorist

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Women's March group in Washington, D.C. has tweeted out praise and happy birthday wishes for Assata Shakur, a convicted murderer and member of the Black Liberation Party - the more violent splinter of the Black Panther Party - who killed a police officer. In 1979, Shakur escaped from prison and fled to Cuba and is currently wanted by the FBI for terrorism, capital murder, and other charges.
Many Twitter users didn't take kindly to the apparent nod to a FBI classified wanted terrorist who killed a police officer in an armed bank robbery in 1973.

The cop that was murdered by Shakur was Trooper Werner Foerster (pictured above). Trooper James Harper was grievously assaulted and seriously injured. Shakur would end up being charged and convicted of these charges, and the FBI has classified her as a domestic terrorist. She is currently on the run and the FBI offers a $1 million for assistance to her capture.

Despite these heinous crimes that left an officer dead, and another seriously injured, the supposed "bipartisan" Women's March Group of Washington, D.C. proceeded to praise Shakur for her acts of "resistance". After receiving backlash from other users, the Group continued to defend it's support for Shakur, saying that "the far right is threatened by our movement" and " took a militant approach. We do not. That does not mean we don't respect and appreciate her anti-racism work."

Shakur made ripples earlier and has become a staple of Anti-West rhetoric after writing a banal autobiography in which she made claims like this:

They call us bandits, yet every time most Black people pick up our paychecks we are being robbed. Every time we walk into a store in our neighborhood we are being held up. And every time we pay our rent the landlord sticks a gun into our ribs. ... The rulers of this country and their flunkies have committed some of the most brutal, vicious crimes in history. They are the bandits. They are the murderers. And they should be treated as such.

Women's March Group later released a full, 20-tweet statement regarding their praise and birthday wishes for Assata Shakur, seemingly backing their support whole-heartedly - the only difference: they choose to do it non-violentely. For them, Shakur is still an influential idol for their movement.

The group likened Shakur's murder and terrorism to a "militant approach" to resistance:

Then, they claimed that Shakur was targeted by a "COINTELPRO" effort - the same one that they say "targeted MLK until his assassination." They even go as far to say after he was "no longer a threat to FBI, they went after the Black Panthers."

They continue, saying Assata [Shakur] was tortured - and raped - (a claim that is not supported) for her murder of the State Trooper.

After escaping, Shakur now lives in Cuba with political aslyum. The women group also tweeted that she became "the first woman added to the FBI Most Wanted Terrorists list" - as if that's somehow a milestone for the Pro-Women Group.

Despite all this apparent support for Shakur, they say they do not "endorse all of her actions."

 And finally, conclude their statement with a nice touch of hate and blame-shifting to the Right.

Most Twitter users weren't buying the disturbing support for a wanted terrorist, slamming the Women's March Group endlessly for their support and nods toward Shakur, a wanted terrorist.

What you didn't see from the Women's March Group: The New Jersey Trooper Werner Foerster, who was murdered by Assata Shakur, left behind his 3-year old son.
