Black Lives Matter Voices Support For Castro, Harboring Cop-Killers
Black Lives Matter Movement Supports Murderers
After Cuban dictator Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz’s death Friday, the Black Lives Matter movement posted via the internet its support of and gratitude to him for his harboring Assata Shakur, who is on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list. The BLM posted an article on Sunday on the Medium platform (Internet) as an eulogy to Castro. A link to the article was posted on Twitter and Facebook.
In the article, BLM portrayed Fidel Castro as a “model freedom fighter” which their members should follow and strive to be like. BLM then thanked Castro for hiding domestic terrorists and criminals from the U.S. government, including Charles Hill, who hijacked an airplane from Albuquerque after the 1972 murder of New Mexico State Trooper Robert Rosenbloom. According to news sources, Hill said in the 1990’s that he had no regrets about killing Trooper Rosenbloom, who was the father of two daughters.
BLM also thanked Castro in the article for harboring Assata Shakur, whose real name is Joanne Chesimard. She is currently wanted by the FBI with a $2 million bounty after being convicted in the United States in 1973 of killing New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster, and also on charges of Assault and Battery of a Police Officer. She escaped from prison and was granted asylum in Cuba in 1984.
On November 28, 2016, New Jersey state Senator Joe Pennacchio is again requesting Chesimard’s extradition to the United States. He said that U.S.-Cuba relations cannot begin to improve until Chesimard is returned to the United States.
Cubans everywhere are celebrating the death of the dictator Castro. His destructive regime has tore families and nations apart. Yet, BLM supports and emulates Castro and his ideology.
We thank fallen peacekeepers New Mexico State Trooper Robert Rosenbloom and New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster. We strongly condemn the actions of BLM in their support of those who harbor fugitives and who urge their members to follow them. And we thank New Jersey state Senator Pennacchio in his demands for Chesimard’s extradition.
Should the extradition of these cop-killers be a prerequisite to U.S.-Cuban relations being restored? Let us know on Facebook or in the comments below.
