Submitted by on May 14, 2011 – 7:19 pm EST8 Comments

Rap icon Tupac Shakur was a communist.

Tupac Shakur

Raised by Black Panther parents , and Tupac joined the Young Communist League, as a teen and never lost his revolutionary outlook.

According to Baltimore YCL leader Jordan Farrar, a self styled “red’ skinhead, Tupac,  joined the League in Baltimore as a teen in the late ’80s .  Apparently he was dating the daughter of the chairman of the Communist Party of Maryland at the time.

Though murdered in September 1996, the famous  East Coast West Coast  hip hop  wars of  Shakur’s revolutionary memory lives on in Baltimore. The Young Communist League branch in the city  is named the Tupac Shakur Club in his honor .

    Did you know that Tupac’s stepfather, Mutulu was a Weatherman and Black Panther?

    From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutulu_Shakur:

    “Shakur is the stepfather of late rapper Tupac Shakur, and father of rapper Mopreme Shakur.

    and

    “On October 20, 1981, after six previous unsuccessful attempts to rob a Brinks truck, Mutulu Shakur and five or six other men succeeded in robbing one, killing one of the Brinks guards. They drove to another location where they transferred the money to a U-Haul truck driven by Boudin and her husband David Gilbert. However, the transfer was seen and called in to the police, who set up a roadblock at the Tappan Zee Bridge. A shootout occurred in which two Nyack policemen were killed and Boudin was captured.

    In the 1980s, he was arrested on Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) charges of bank robbery and aiding his sister, Assata Shakur, in her escape from prison on November 2, 1979. While at large, on July 23, 1982 he became the 380th person added by the FBI to the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list. He was arrested February 11, 1986 in California and was subsequently found guilty of taking part in the armored-truck robbery and the prison escape. Shakur is to be released in 2016″

    The rapper Common who was the esteemed guest at the White House last week, rapped about Assata Shakur who escaped with the help of Tupac’s stepfather. She now lives in Cuba.
    Guess who else was involved in the Weathermen? Obama’s friends and mentor and ghost writer of his books, Billy Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn.

    They are all connected. They are all Commies. We may have an ex Weatherman in the White House.

    See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brink%27s_robbery_%281981%29

    How did Nathaniel Burns now aka Sekou Odinga, involved in the same Brink’s robbery, now serving a life sentence for murder, know about the name Odinga (the surname of Obama’s family and especially his cousin Raila Odinga from Kenya? HE HAD TO HAVE KNOWN OBAMA since this was pre-internet days and he would nOT have known about Odinga then. I’m pretty sure Obama was involved-he may even have been present at that robbery since several of the robbers/murderers were never caught. Is that why Obama hates cops so much?

    Makes me very sad to see communists using people for their own agenda right under our noses.

  • frank says:

    This guy deserves to live under communism. We should ship him off to Cuba or North Korea where he can enjoy his pipe dream of life in a “worker’s utopia”.

    Remember the American Finns who expatriated themselves to Korelia in the 30s and 40s for the same reason. When they got there, they found their dream was a nightmare and it was too late, they were stuck there having to live through Stalin’s paranoia purges.

    This should be no suprise to any American who learned American History.Our English has been DEgraded with words that Rhyme,and Provoke Hatred in Rap Town.Its been so easy to Attract the lesser intelligent beings into mayhem,especially those that think that America owes them.Communism,has seeped its way into every facet of American life.These are dangerous times.America must learn to vote for people who have American values,not for those with NONE.

      You’re a total jackass. Tupac was tested and declared more intelligent than most ivy league sophomores. He wasn’t a communist as much as he believed that there should be some wealth distribution. Because people have planes and billions of dollars and there are people that don’t even have clothes and food.
