The women’s march true colors are showing more and more, and it’s not pink like they’d have you believe. No, it’s more of an abyss black.
After they spent last weekend protesting the NRA (National Rifle Association) and marching for 18 miles, they are now showing their ignorance once again. On Monday, they came under fire for honoring a cop killer.
Convicted cop killer and member of the FBI’s most-wanted, the women’s march celebrated the birthday of Assata Shakur, the godmother of Tupac Shakur. Assata, also known as Joanne Chesimard, is a suspect in a series of crimes from the 1970’s. One of those incidents includes a bank robbery in which there was a grenade attack and they ambushed the police.
“Happy birthday to the revolutionary #AssataShakur! Today’s #SignOfResistance, in Assata’s honor, is by @Meloniousfunk,” they tweeted.

Fox News reports:
She was convicted of shooting a New Jersey trooper to death in 1973, but she escaped prison and, in the early 1980s, fled to Cuba, where she was granted political asylum.
The post created a firestorm on Twitter, with many pointing to the group celebrating the birthday of a fugitive.

This is an unbelievable tweet. This woman is a convicted cop-killer. Is that what the women’s march honors? https://t.co/ahAliwWKsC

Even Dana Loesch, NRA spokeswoman tweeted, “Hi @womensmarch — you celebrate cop killers. I celebrate truth. My ad was beautiful and it stays. You don’t get to censor my speech. #2A.”
