If the media’s obsession with humanizing the Boston Marathon bombers hasn’t completely disgusted you, here’s a story that should push you over the finish line.

Today is the birthday of Mumia Abu-Jamal, who’s currently serving a life sentence for the murder of Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. Mumia has long been a favorite cause of the Left. In case you missed it earlier this month, the NAACP even declared Mumia an unsung hero.

Marc Lamont Hill could barely contain himself today but he’s not alone. There was a rally in support of Mumia in Philadelphia and leftists on Twitter are displaying their typical embrace of violent criminals with the hashtag #FreeMumia.

Students for Mumia? Somewhere in Chicago, Bill Ayers is smiling.

Of course, not everyone is buying what’s being sold.

Well said, Jammie.

Maybe it’s time for someone to ask Bill O’Reilly why Marc Lamont Hill is on his show so often.
