One of Barack Obama’s very last acts as president (wonder why?) was to commute the sentence of FALN mastermind Oscar López Rivera, who was convicted in federal court of seditious conspiracy, violation of the Hobbs Act, illegal weapons possession, and interstate transportation of stolen motor vehicles.
“Hamilton” creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda was so thrilled by the news about “Don Oscar” he tweeted that he was “sobbing with gratitude.” Bill Ayers told Obama to “keep rolling!” And the mayor of the city where FALN bombings had killed four citizens and seriously wounded three police officers? He kept things low key, with a simple thank you to the president and congratulations to all who help free Rivera.
So, no, it’s not surprising that Bill de Blasio will be marching in New York’s Puerto Rico Day Parade along with Rivera.
