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.” (http://alicewalkersgarden.com/2013/05/sister-assata-this-is-what-american-history-looks-like/)

 

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!
