Watch Dems Kick Off Forum with Chant from Cop-Killer

The current iteration of the Democratic Party has moved increasingly toward the left in recent years. It has shifted far from the classic liberal positions it once held to an embrace of openly Marxist and socialist policies.
This was evident during the opening of a recent major forum for Democrats that was sponsored by numerous high-profile Democrat-affiliated groups and featured numerous high-profile Democratic speakers, including several top 2020 presidential candidates, according to a report from Mediaite.
That forum was the 2019 We The People Summit in Washington D.C. The event began with opening remarks from NAACP leader Jamal Watkins, in which he lead the crowd in a chanted quote from a convicted cop-killer who is also an avowed Marxist communist.
The chant led by Watkins stated, “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”
That was a direct quote from convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard. Her quote was itself a mangled adaptation of a quote from Karl Marx, whose writings inspired the communist/socialist movement that has proven so deadly and destructive over the past century-plus. 
That quote from Marx read, “Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.”
In other words, a major Democratic Party political forum just kicked off with what was essentially a call to arms for a socialist revolution … not exactly something the Democratic Party of years past would have done.
As for Shakur, she was a member of the Black Panthers and Black Liberation Army in the 1970s when she shot and killed a New Jersey state trooper. She was eventually convicted of murder, but ultimately escaped and was granted asylum by Cuba’s communist regime. 
It is worth noting that she was the first female to ever be placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, and despite demands for her to be turned over to U.S. authorities, the Cuban government has refused to cooperate.
Yet, despite being an avowed communist who reveres Marx and hates America — or perhaps because of all of that — Shakur has been embraced by leftist movements like Black Lives Matter, the anti-Trump Women’s March group and even the anti-gun, student-led March for Our Lives movement.
To be sure, leaders of those groups have played semantic games to try and distance themselves from the worst of Shakur — typically by suggesting they don’t support her violent tactics, but are inspired by her militantism for change — and it is quite likely that many members of those groups have no real idea who Shakur is or what she truly stands for.
Nevertheless, it can’t be denied that today’s Democratic Party and affiliated party apparatus has openly embraced the infamous words of a Marxist communist that wants to destroy America as we know it.
That would include the organizers and sponsors of the summit, such as abortion providers Planned Parenthood, the radical environmentalists of the Sierra Club, the SEIU labor union and CPD Action, a subsidiary of the leftist community organizing group Center for Popular Democracy, among others. 
It also includes the prominent Democrats who spoke at the event, but said nothing to distance themselves from the Shakur chant, such as New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, former Texas Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, among others.
The Democratic Party used to stand shoulder to shoulder with their Republican colleagues in staunch opposition to the societal scourge that is Marxist communism. Sadly, it seems that the Democratic party now openly embraces and promotes policies that will inevitably lead to Marxist communism right here in the United States — and that is simply shameful and anti-American.
