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.
Today is also Mumia Abu-Jamal's Birthday. Out of sight is NOT out of mind. #FreeMumia

This #freemumia event in Philly brings to light the power of struggle, and the power of social justice!

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

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

The only thing Mumia is a prisoner of is the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections. #CopKiller

If people are discussing Mumia again, time to remind them of the facts of his case http://t.co/VNIi8LzJo7

Now we understand why pseudo-intellectual @marclamonthill is so morally depraved. He considers cop-killer Mumia a "leading intellectual"

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