Well Tubularsock has been thinking about this entire Assata Shakur regurgitation from the FBI. And all I can come up with is that the FBI has been having a very good showing in the Just-How-Inept-Are-We category.

No, seriously.

The FBI has a great track record in organizing the not-so-bright and then convincing them to do something stupid in order to be caught as terrorists. But sadly, for the FBI, everyone has learned how to connect the dots and discover that it is the FBI itself that set up the entire plot as an entrapment scheme to make themselves look good. You know, like they are doing a good job or something.

However, when it comes to a real terrorist plot or a real terrorist attack the FBI seems to be so busy running their own fake-terrorist-schemes that they miss the real deal.

Enter Assata Shakur! Over thirty years ago Assata Shakur escaped from prison and made her way to Cuba. She is 65 years old now and the FBI has just proclaimed her the first woman on its list of most wanted terrorists. Do you think this is some type of feminist advancement program for the FBI? The reward for her capture and return has been doubled to $2 million.

Give Tubularsock a break. I’m not scared. When you read about the kangaroo trial she was put through and the racist jury that convicted her maybe the terrorist title should be placed on New Jersey’s Judge John E. Bachman and the 12 racist folks from Morris County.


This is the best distraction the FBI can come up with? How pathetic. 


While Assata was on the run after her escape she lived as a fugitive for several years. The FBI circulated wanted posters throughout the New Jersey and New York areas but her supporters put up “Assata Shakur is Welcome Here” posters in response.

Tubularsock suggests bringing forth a new poster campaign for 2013 ……..


Shakur Welcome


You’d think the FBI would actually put their efforts concentrating on present day dangers rather than going back 30 years and puffing up their feathers. Yes, it is really embarrassing. 

As Alice Walker so compassionately put it, “. . . the US government can now offer two million dollars for the capture of a very small, not young, black woman who was brutally abused, even shot, over three decades ago, as if we don’t need that money to buy people food, clothes, medicine, and decent places to live.” (


It truly is astounding, yet in this America that is led by a step-and-fetch-it-Negro who is a slave boy to the white corporate power structure, Tubularsock, for one, is not surprised!

    Perhaps, this is about sending a message to the black communities…we may have been distracted by killing brown people and Muslims for the past decade but we haven’t forgotten you all. You’re still on our to-do list just as soon as we can take out this son-of-a-bitch won’t die Assad.


  2. tubularsock says:

    Jeff, thank you for taking the time to comment. I agree but I feel it is even broader than just the Black community. The police militarism against the Occupy Movement, the entire Prison Industrial Complex set up, the immigration issue direction. All are directed toward a crack down on the rights of the people.

    The interesting thing is that the minority communities are used to the oppression and know how to flow through it much better than the middle-class white community ……… boy is that going to be a surprise when the white middle class discover that it’s a class struggle not a race struggle and that they aren’t part of the 1% and never will be!

    And as they said 30 years ago ……. POWER TO THE PEOPLE!


    • Jeff Nguyen says:

      I agree with your points wholly but if Leonard Peltier was on a billboard with an announcement of a $2 million bounty it would be clear who the intended audience is…AIM, its supporters and the community it represents. Shakur represents a movement that struck fear in the hearts of the ruling class. The feds biggest fear may not be another MLK, although its probably high on their list, but another Malcolm X.

      Fortunately, Peltier is still in a cage so that’s one less billboard to make. You’re right that in the end its all part of the same steaming pile of doo doo and that we are all in the crosshairs. The bankers and billionaires declared war on the people a long time ago. It’s hard to get people to understand you can wage a war without firing a single shot.

      Just my 2 cents which probably has already depreciated by the time you read this.


      • tubularsock says:

        Jeff we are on the same page and your 2 cents has increased in value because of its actual metal value rather than monetary value (yes, I melted them down and yes it is against federal law but don’t show me no stinking badges!) …….. ahhh, a future discussion.

        My only addition to your comments is that I want to see that billboard in Lakota!

        All fun aside ………. you are correct!

    Very good point! I agree!


    • tubularsock says:

      Welcome Kushite Prince. Thank you for taking the time to comment. I spent some time today looking over your work and found it to be very powerful and insightful. So, being in agreement with Tubularsock makes me feel good. Thanks.


      • Kushite Prince says:

        Thanks a lot. I was checking out your page as well. You seem to do a lot of research. You cover a lot of ground. Kind of hard to process it But you seem to be on the right path.


      • tubularsock says:

        Kushite Prince …….. Tubularsock has many interests and research is just one. A short attention span is another. Thanks for the comment.
