Joanne Chesimar, also known as Assata Shakur, is a cop killer who escaped from prison in the 1970’s and fled to Cuba where she has been living ever since. She is one of the FBI’s most wanted.
Yet the left wing Women’s March is embracing her. Just a few days ago, they tweeted this:

The media is blatantly ignoring this because it makes the Women’s March look bad.

Media Straight-Up Ignore A Scandal
It’s been 72 hours since one of the left’s most prominent political organizations declared its support for a convicted murderer and domestic terrorist on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, and not one establishment media outlet has covered it.
As reported by TheDC on Monday, Women’s March declared its support for convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur on Sunday afternoon, calling her a “sign of resistance” and wishing the “revolutionary” a happy birthday.
CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal — as well as every major television network besides Fox News — all left their readers and viewers in the dark for three days (and counting) about the leftist organization’s support for a terrorist.
Do you think the media would look the other way if Trump supporters embraced a violent criminal who was wanted by the FBI? Of course they wouldn’t. It’d be front page news for days and every elected Republican would be forced to denounce it.
