Left Demands Destruction of “White European” Jesus Statues
By Def-Con News – 6/28/2020
First, they came for the Confederates, then, the Founding Fathers, and now, the left has turned its rage against Jesus. A white guy who makes a living pretending he’s black is demanding that all statues and images of “white European Jesus” be destroyed because they are tools of white supremacy and black oppression. For those who have been asking “where does it end?” – it doesn’t end. Leftists won’t be happy until they’ve destroyed everything in Western civilization and this culture..
Shaun King is a major Black Lives Matter activist despite his not-so-secret identity as a white person. It’s unclear if he was asked a question or just offered an unprovoked answer, but this is what he thinks needs to be done to truly stop racism:
On a Twitter feed, Shaun King said, “I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been. In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down.
By the way, Denmark didn’t become a country until 1397, plus Jesus, Mary, Joseph fled to Egypt because it was outside King Herod’s reach, not because they could blend in racially.
I’m sure, those Europeans made stained glass depictions of Jesus and the Virgin Mary in white European churches, attended by white Europeans as means to oppress black people who lived thousands of miles away.
As it turns out, King doesn’t even believe in Jesus, but he’s still pretty sure Jesus wasn’t white.
Why is “white” Jesus a lie? Jesus and his family lived along the major trading route in the Mediterranean region that saw people from all over including white Europeans. The Caucasian race, aka white people, had ancient populations in parts of Europe, Western Asia, Central Asia, South Asia, and North Africa. King is operating under the false assumption that since Egypt is in Africa, everyone in the area were sub-Saharan Africans, aka black people.
Jesus’ family were also Jewish and there are/were white Israelite tribes. There is no historic or scientific reason why Jesus couldn’t have been white. Also, since Jesus is the Son of God, he can be whatever God wants him to be.
What is a lie, however, is black Shaun King. Back in 2015, a family member outed King on CNN saying that both of his parents were white, something confirmed by his birth certificate. For some reason he still insists he’s black, and nobody from the black community is concerned. Actually that reason is because he makes a decent living being black and he wouldn’t make one single dime if he admitted he is white.
This might however be the moment King’s charade blows up in his white face. Most black people are devout Christians and probably won’t appreciate a leftist cultural appropriator telling them to tear down Jesus statues.
