Jet Blue Airlines Outrages with Praise for Cop Killer Assata Shakur

The company was 100 percent aware of her crimes.

Assata Shakur

JetBlue Airlines wallowed in a major failure for its celebration of Black History Month by celebrating and praising the life of convicted cop killer Assata Shakur as one of its honorees for recognition of black achievement.

As part of its Black History Month celebration, the airline put out posters praising the murderer in at least one airport, according to Daily Caller.

The posters appeared at John F. Kennedy International Airport:

Shakur, whose real name is Joanne Chesimard, has been on the FBI’s Most Wanted list for decades after escaping from prison in 1979, where she was serving out a life sentence for murdering a police officer. Shakur eventually fled to Cuba.

After people began complaining that JetBlue was celebrating an outright murderer, the company tried to back track and apologize for celebrating her.

JetBlue put out a statement reading:

“Our crewmembers came together to celebrate Black History Month with a display in Terminal 5 featuring prominent individuals in history. When we learned of concerns regarding one individual, we immediately removed the poster.”

But you can’t say it was just an ill-informed accident and that the company was unaware of the woman’s crimes. In fact, the wonderful things Jet Blue was praising her for included “Became the first woman to be placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list after escaping to Cuba from prison, where she was serving a life sentence for the 1973 murder of a police officer.”

It was right there on the poster!

The poster that featured a photo of this monster also praised her for:

  • Civil Rights activist and a member of the Black Panther Party.
  • Regarded as a hero for her protests against racism and her role win the 1970s Black Liberation Army.
  • Community advocate who helped the poor by organizing a free breakfast program and a health clinic.
  • Became the first woman to be placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list after escaping to Cuba from prison, where she was serving a life sentence for the 1973 murder of a police officer.
  • Many people believe Shakur to be a political champion who is innocent of the criminal accusations against her.

The company was 100 percent aware of her crimes. And they praised her for them anyway.

Joe Biden Claims ‘Trillionaires’ Aren’t Paying Enough Taxes, But there Are No U.S. Trillionaires

Joe Biden attacked American “trillionaires” on Friday even though there aren’t any U.S. trillionaires in the first place.

Joe Biden attacked American “trillionaires” on Friday who he says aren’t paying enough taxes, but — fact check, Joe — there aren’t any U.S. trillionaires in the first place.

“I’m running to change the dynamic of how the economy grows,” Biden said during a presser. “I’m tired of trickle-down. Trillionaires and billionaires are doing very, very well. You all report it.”

It is also unclear what Joe thinks he’s “running” for, unless he has forgotten that he has been crowed president of the United States.

Aside from that, though, even America’s richest person, Amazon chief Jeff Bezos, is a mere multi-billionaire with a net worth of $177 billion, according to Forbes magazine.

Per Breitbart News:

The president spoke about raising taxes on the wealthy after an event promoting coronavirus vaccine booster shots at the White House.

He claimed his policies for a permanent childcare tax credit were not costing the government any money.

“It’s not,” Biden said. “It’s reducing taxes, reducing taxes, not increasing taxes.”

He again pressed the issue of taxes as a moral issue, noting corporations were not paying enough.

“I just think it’s about just paying your fair share,’ he said, adding that it was “just wrong.”

Apparently, Biden doesn’t know who earns what in the U.S. Indeed, his plan would be just another broken campaign promise because it raises taxes on people making under $400,000 a year, something he said he would not do.

Black Lives Matter Leader Calls Biden Vaccine Mandates ‘Racist’

A Black Lives Matter leader in New York is threatening an “uprising” over vaccine mandates pushed by Joe Biden and Democrat leaders.

A Black Lives Matter leader in New York is threatening an “uprising” over vaccine mandates pushed by Joe Biden and the Empire State’s Democrat leaders.

New York City enacted a vaccine mandate effective on September 13 that requires vaccine ID cards to enter restaurants, concerts, and other public spaces, but Hawk Newsome, the co-founder and chairman of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, says these mandates discriminate against blacks.

According to state statistics, a whopping 85.6 percent of New York blacks remain unvaccinated.

This means the vast majority of blacks in New York are barred from participating in open society.

“I think, in a perfect world, [vaccine requirements] should be business by business. But it could be a slippery slope, so the mandate should be removed completely,” Newsome recently told the Washington Examiner.

“It’s not gonna be white men in suits on Wall Street who are gonna get stopped. There’s such hypocrisy in this thing,” he added.

The number of unvaccinated is nearly as bad for the Big Apple with 70 percent of the city’s blacks remaining unvaccinated.

“It’s black people who have a natural distrust of the vaccine,” Newsome added citing the widespread fear raised in blacks thanks to the decades-old story of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study.

Newsome also said it was “disrespectful” for the city to have severely limited religious exemptions. “Now the government has decided your God doesn’t matter?” he asked aloud.

Meanwhile, black support for Biden is plummeting:
