In honor of Women’s History Month, the White House administration praised a female activist who publicly celebrated Osama bin Laden and insinuated that the terrorist leader was righteous in his cause.
“I consider Usama bin Laden as one of the people that I admire. To me, he is in the category of Malcolm X, Che Guevara, Patrice Lumumba, Fidel Castro…” Kochiyama said in a 2003 interview. “I thank Islam for bin Laden. America’s greed, aggressiveness and self-righteous arrogance must be stopped. War and weaponry must be abolished”
To be clear, she celebrated the same Al Qaeda terrorist leader that was behind the Sept. 11, 2011 terrorist attacks that killed 2,997 people and injured over 6,000 others.
Kochiyama also elevated bin Laden’s name when she said in the same interview that he “has been primarily fighting U.S. dominance even when he received money from the U.S., when he was fighting in Afghanistan. He was fighting for Islam and all people who believe in Islam, against westerners — especially the U.S. — even when he was fighting against the Russians.”
But the White House Initiative on Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders (WHIAANHPI) tweet giving a summary on the Japanese American political and civil rights activist conveniently left this detail of her past out.

Instead, the social media post cited that the communist activist was forced into an internment camp for Japanese Americans and “for fifty years spoke out about oppressive institutions and injustice in the United States. Her activism supported the liberation and empowerment of African Americans, Asian Americans, and Puerto Ricans.”
Dr. Carol Swain blasted the WHIAANHPI post in an appearance on “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Saturday morning noting that President Joe Biden’s administration isn’t even trying to hide their sympathies for communists.
“I believe that this is the most anti-American, pro-communist administration in America’s history, and that we all should be concerned that this is being done out in the open. And if you look at President Biden’s foreign policy, it seems to be geared to empowering China, communist China. And we see human rights abuses in the U.S. with the Jan. 6 protestors,” Swain said. “We have Americans being denied their human rights right here in America when it comes to due process. And so, we need to stand up and take note that this is becoming a country that’s anti-American from the very top.”
“We have people in office that should be tried for treason,” the co-author of “Black Eye for America” added.
Bin Laden was just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to terrorists that Kochiyama supported.
The female Maoist that eventually converted to Islam was also known for supporting a Maoist terrorist movement called the Shining Path movement that sought to overthrow the government in Peru and install a communist regime. In total, the group was responsible for the deaths of over 24,000 people during a 12 year period of time.
“What has been taking place in both Peru and the U.S. is a serious campaign to discredit Guzmán and the Shining Path movement, tainting them as terrorists, undermining their struggle with lies, isolating them and intimidating anyone who might support them,” Kochiyama said at one time.
Social media lit up with outrage over the White House highlighting a woman like Kochiyama with such a checkered past.
Maoist. Shining Path supporter. You can’t make this stuff up.

Some were more level-headed, noting that it comes as no surprise that the current administration supports terrorism.
Y’all gotta stop being surprised by this shit.
