Ocasio-Cortez Gets Blasted For Claiming Jesus Was A ‘Refugee’

H/T Godfather Politics.

 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is so ignorant she makes Slow Joe Biden look like a Rhodes Scholar.     

 

Ocasio-Cortez wished her Twitter followers a Merry Christmas by referring to the newborn Jesus as a “refugee.”

“Joy to the World!” Ocasio-Corteztweeted. “Merry Christmas everyone – here’s to a holiday filled with happiness, family, and love for all people. (Including refugee babies in mangers + their parents.)”

Why can’t she even take a day off?

For all the anti-immigrant pundits uncomfortable with and denying that Christ’s family were refugees, too: https://www.americamagazine.org/faith/2017/12/27/were-jesus-mary-and-joseph-refugees-yes 

Were Jesus, Mary and Joseph refugees? Yes.

A family is forced to flee their homeland for fear of persecution. This is the classic modern-day definition of a refugee.

Daily Wire:

Democratic socialist Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced intense backlash on Tuesday after she decided to politicize Christmas by making false claims about Jesus.

“Joy to the World!” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Merry Christmas everyone – here’s to a holiday filled with happiness, family, and love for all people. (Including refugee babies in mangers + their parents.)”

Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that Jesus was a refugee baby in a manger is categorically false, as Fox News‘ Samuel Chamberlain explains:

Mary and Joseph are not depicted as refugees in the Nativity story. According to the Gospel of Luke, Joseph brings the pregnant Mary to Bethlehem so that he may enroll in a census ordered by the Roman emperor Agustus. The couple are forced to take shelter in the stable where Jesus is born due to a lack of room at the inn. More

Someone better tell Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that it’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt.

Why do people compare Jesus with illegal aliens? Mary and Joseph were traveling for a census. Not to immigrate to Bethlehem. There is absolutely no comparison at all.

Refugee?? According to the Gospel of Luke, Joseph brings the pregnant Mary to Bethlehem so that he may enroll in a census ordered by the Roman emperor Augustus. The couple are forced to take shelter in the stable where Jesus is born due to a lack of room at the inn.

Christ’s family weren’t refugees. They had to report back to Joseph’s home of his birth for the census. They arrived late and therefore found there was no room at the any inns.

I still feel like using the birth of christ to push a political agenda isn’t a great look.

Have you even read the Bible? They were not refugees. They were obeying the law to go and be counted for the census. End of.
