It was just a couple of weeks ago that Twitchy reported on a disturbing new fashion trend among #BlackLivesMatter demonstrators: the emergence of the “ASSATA TAUGHT ME” protest hoodie, celebrating ’70s cop-killer Assata Shakur.
In a 2013 column, Michelle Malkin gave a primer on cop-killing radicals fetishized by the Left, including Shakur, née Joanne Chesimard, who in 1973 shot and killed New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster execution-style during a traffic stop. She was sentenced to life in 1977, but escaped from prison two years later with help from violent left-wing accomplices and now lives in Cuba as a political asylee.
As Twitchy wrote at the time, “What exactly has Assata taught protesters? That cop-killing pays.”
It turns out that Shakur keeps on teaching, having found a prominent position at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wis. That position is on a wall in the university’s Gender and Sexuality Resource Center, in the form of a mural featuring her likeness and two quotes.
Charles Sykes, editor-in-chief of Right Wisconsin, points his readers to a post in the Marquette Warrior by John McAdams, a professor of political science at Marquette who has been ordered to stay off campus over a blog post criticizing a student teacher who wouldn’t allow one of her students to voice his opposition to same-sex marriage in class.
