Democrat Presidential Contenders Cool With Forum That Embraces Cop Killer Assata Shakur

Now, just imagine that a bunch of Republican politicians of any stripe were at a forum that embraced some right leaning murderer. How would that go?

N.J. cop-killing fugitive Assata Shakur’s words take center stage at Dem presidential forum. State Police, others express anger.

New Jersey’s top law enforcement officials denounced a speaker who led a crowd in a call-and-response using the words of fugitive cop killer Assata Shakur during a conference featuring 2020 Democratic presidential contenders.

Speaking at the We the People summit, NAACP Vice President of Civic Engagement Jamal Watkins called Shakur a “leader.”

Assata Shakur, who was born with the name Joanne Chesimard, was convicted in the 1973 slaying of NJSP Trooper Werner Foerster. The FBI Most Wanted killer escaped from a women’s prison and has been harbored from justice in Cuba.

None of the candidates were on stage during the Watkins speech that evoked Shakur.

Watkins led the crowd in a chant quoting the trooper’s killer, Fox News reported.

“I’m gonna actually have you participate with me in repeating some words from a leader by the name of Assata Shakur. So if you could stand up…but I want you to repeat after me,” Watkins said.

“It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains,” he continued, citing words Shakur wrote while in prison.

NJ’s AG Gurbir Grewal wisely slammed this.

The conference features 2020 hopefuls U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, U.S. Sen, Elizabeth Warren, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Julián Castro and Beto O’Rourke, Fox News reported.

What’s worse for Booker is that he is a Senator for New Jersey. He took a nice selfie while there and spoke on stage. None of these people have complained, nor did they walk out in protest.

Nice to know they support the cop murderer.

    Just locking up the cop killer vote.
    Dems are inclusive.

    I’m surprised they didn’t also invoke the words of other heroes of the progressives such as “political activist” (err, cop killer) Mumia Jamal and children’s book author (err, murdering gangster) Stanley Tookie Williams.

    We’ll be seeing a lot more of these type of rallies/forums as we get closer to 2020. The Democrat-Communists have to corral all their constituents from the sexual perverts to the anti American subversives to the everyday criminals that constitute their base. The left knows they own the crazy’s like the climate change loons, the “pussy hat” ladies, men who say they’re women, the 30 million illegals who we’ll find somehow mysteriously voted, every Mohammadan west of Mecca and of course every communist north of Cuba. If they can rap up the criminal/felon vote they can put a lock on taxpayers to fund their political perversion of America for the next twenty years. If we last that long.

    If, say, David duke had been there, every R with a brain would have been hectored with lines like, Do you support…?.
