Matteson & Trish: Won't take stand against cop-killer
Along with Sussex County Democrat Party boss Leslie Huhn, Democrat Assembly candidates Kate Matteson and Gina Trish are big supporters of the Women's March organization. As reported in the media, the Women's March last month "honored" cop-killer Joanne Chesimard (aka Assata Shakur).
Referring to the notorious cop-killer, who murdered a New Jersey State Trooper in cold blood, as a "revolutionary" whose words "inspire us to keep resisting", the far-left Women' March organization issued a statement "celebrating" Ms. Chesimard's birthday.
The Star-Ledger reported on this:
So did the Save Jersey blog reported on this:
Joanne Chesimard, the Black Liberation Army member hiding in Cuba after murdering New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973, has long eluded American justice and vexed New Jersey public officials as well as the public at large.
Donald Trump made headlines in June by spiking the Obama-era Cuba deal and citing the case of Chesimard (a/k/a Assata Shakur) as one of the reasons.
Eyebrows were therefore raised on Sunday when the far-left Women’s March’s social media accounts CELEBRATED the notorious cop-killing fugitive’s birthday:
“I think you guys accidentally left out the part where she shot a police officer in the face, escaped from prison, then fled to Cuba in this post,” responded one Facebook user.
Now we all know where Republican Assemblyman Parker Space stands on cop-killer Joanne Chesimard (aka Assata Shakur). He wants her extradited back to the United States to face trial for the murder of a police officer. Assemblyman Space backed that up by co-sponsoring a legislative resolution (AR-111) to urge Congress and the Administration to make that happen.
Despite requests for a statement on this matter, after two weeks we still haven't heard from Democrats Matteson and Trish.
Earlier in the year, the Democrats did make their voices heard when Assemblyman Space suggested that drug traffickers who sell to minors suffer the maximum penalty under federal law. The Democrats cried and asked that we think of the drug traffickers, not of the children being poisoned. Then they suggested that to do otherwise was somehow "racist." Ridiculous!
But what can one expect from Democrat one-percenters? They inhabit their cozy bubbles and have no experience of how most of America lives. They look upon average Americans using the crudest of stereotypes.
So we are very interested in hearing what party boss Huhn and candidates Matteson & Trish have to say about the Women's March honoring a cop-killer.
