HYPOCRITES: Group Protesting NRA Over ‘Violent Rhetoric’ Embraces Convicted Cop Killer

Linda Sarsour led a protest against the NRA recently over her hatred for firearms because she thinks guns are responsible for violence.

Not only was she a hypocrite by hiring armed personnel to guard her during the protest, but the organization that she represents recently decided to show their support for a convicted cop killer.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

The group behind last week’s protest against the National Rifle Association over rhetoric it claimed was a “direct endorsement of violence” wished a convicted cop killer and fugitive a happy birthday on Monday.

“Happy birthday to the revolutionary #AssataShakur!” the verified Twitter account for the Women’s March tweeted. “Today’s #SignOfResistance, in Assata’s honor, is by @Meloniousfunk.”

The tweet included a painting of Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard, with the slogan “A woman’s place is in the struggle.”

The Women’s March praise for Chesimard came less than a week after the group organized a protest of the National Rifle Association (NRA) in large part due to a video the gun organization produced. The video, which criticized resistance to the Trump administration and protests that have repeatedly turned violent across the country, was specifically cited as a key motivator for the protest, and the Women’s March demanded the NRA take it down. “Recent actions by the NRA demonstrate not only a complete disregard for the lives of black and brown people in America—your fellow citizens—but appear to be a direct endorsement of violence against these citizens exercising their constitutional right to protest,” a letter from Tamika D. Mallory, co-president of the Women’s March, to the NRA read. “You are calling for our grassroots, nonviolent resistance movement to be met with violence.”
