The BLM gang thanked Castro for allowing Assata Shakur, (aka JoAnne Chesimard) who was convicted of murder, escaped from prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba where El Comandante gave her political asylum.
It was Castro's way of flipping off our country, which BLM sees as a good thing.
Chesimard was the first woman to be put on the FBI's Most Wanted List. In 1972, now going by the name Shakur, she became the subject of a nationwide manhunt after the FBI alleged that she was the "revolutionary mother hen" of a Black Liberation Army cell that had carried out a "series of cold-blooded murders of New York City police officers," that included the "execution style murders" of NYPD Officers Joseph Piagentini and Waverly Jones on May 21, 1971, and Gregory Foster and Rocco Laurie on January 28, 1972.
Chesimard was alleged to be directly involved with the Foster and Laurie murders and indirectly involved with the Jones and Piagentini murders, to the delight of the BLM anarchists.
BLM penned an article Sunday titled "Lessons from Fidel: Black Lives Matter and the Transition of El Comandante." There, on the Medium platform, an anonymous (aka cowardly) byline eulogized the passing of the Cuban scumcrumpet. It was also posted on their semi-literate Facebook page.
The article lied that Castro's death has caused "an overwhelming sense of loss, complicated by fear and anxiety." So far, it appears that more Cubans, especially those who have fled Castro's regime and came to America, are celebrating his death, perhaps not so much because he died, but because Cuba is at a new stage of its development.
The anonymous BLM article added "Although no leader is without their flaws, we must push back against the rhetoric of the right and come to the defense of El Comandante."
The leftist BLM author portrayed Castro as a model freedom fighter, who Black Lives Matter should strive to follow and emulate. "As Fidel ascends to the realm of the ancestors, we summon his guidance, strength, and power as we recommit ourselves to the struggle for universal freedom. Fidel Vive!"
The anarchist author thanked Castro for hiding criminals and domestic terrorists such as Michael Finney, Ralph Goodwin and Charles Hill--who hijacked a plane from Albuquerque when being sought for the 1972 murder of NM State Trooper Robert Rosenbloom. In the 1990s Hill told the Washington Post that he had no regrets about killing Rosenbloom.
The BLM movement is also "particularly grateful" to Castro for harboring "Mama Assata Shakur, who continues to inspire us." Butt-rocket Castro granted her asylum in 1984.
It's obvious that BLM is a hate group admired by Barack Obama and the leftists we regrettably elected. Hopefully, with the new administration, their violence will be stopped, their leaders will receive justice, and race relationships will improve.
But I wouldn't bet on it.
