The Assata Cult
As explained by Michelle Malkin:
“What Assata taught me” is the new “Hands up, don’t shoot.”And just a little Googling shows plenty of examples of the cult:
For $35, you, too, can sport a politically correct black hoodie emblazoned with a fugitive convicted murderer’s name. Assata’s apparel is the new rage among perpetually enraged Baltimore and Ferguson social justice warriors. It won’t be long now before hipster actresses and cable news progressives are Instagramming themselves wearing this latest entry in radical chic to show their “solidarity.”
Here’s what Assata taught me: The left’s sick fetish for cop-killers is still going strong after four decades of violence, bloodshed, bigotry and excuses. The timing couldn’t be more blood-boiling. As the relatives, friends and colleagues of NYPD Officer Brian Moore, 25, prepare to bury their hero on Friday after he was brazenly shot in the face this weekend by a thug with a long rap sheet and a deep hatred of police, Assata’s army remains as militant as ever.

If we had more black youth wearing t shirts that said "MLK taught me" than "Assata taught me" #BaltimoreRiots wouldn't be happening.— ✌ Eliza Beth ✌ (@InfidelLizaBeth) April 27, 2015
