Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Uses Nativity Story To Slam Trump On Immigration

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can’t stop digging. In her efforts to make the Trump Administration look bad, she ends up looking the fool. In this case, her Christmas tweet aimed at Trump’s immigration policy got everything about the Nativity Story wrong.

First of all, I can’t believe she isn’t being dragged for saying Merry Christmas. We’ve been told for years that Merry Christmas is triggering and MUST NOT BE SAID. Oh wait, I forgot. It’s ok if SHE does it, but we aren’t allowed.

Meanwhile, regarding her dig at refugee babies in mangers. It is clear that she can’t read and/or never listened in church to the Nativity Story. 

I’m not sure where this bogus narrative alleging the Holy Family were refugees at the time of the nativity originated, but it’s certainly not from scripture. Mary and Joseph were under the jurisdiction of King Herod, who answered to the Roman Empire. The Holy Family made the trek from Galilee to Judea so that they could pay the empire’s taxes and participate in its census, identifying their official place of residence and listing their property. More specifically, they traveled to Bethlehem, the town of David, because Joseph and Mary were both of the line of David, meaning Bethlehem would be counted more or less as their “home town.” They did all of this precisely because they were citizens.

Exactly. They were citizens and had to be counted so the government would know who to tax.

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

But sure kiddo, you run with the refugee bit, even though it’s totally wrong.

A refugee is someone who has to flee their own country in order to survive. Did Mary and Joseph have to flee to Bethlehem in order to survive? NOPE. Once they were counted as citizens, they were able to FREELY travel back to their own home. Is that the definition of a refugee? Not one bit.

Her follow-up tweet talking about fleeing to Egypt gets the rest of the story wrong. The flight to Egypt happened well after Jesus birth and the stay there only lasted until King Herod died.

So again, not a refugee trying to get into a country illegally.

What’s interesting is that she tweeted this while supposedly on her ‘self-care’ break.

Scaramucci is correct, she is a force to be reckoned with in that she’s catering to people who don’t know their history. They don’t look past the headlines, and certainly don’t question her stance. They just adopt it as gospel (see what I did there?) and run with it.

In an effort to point the finger at the Trump Administration on immigration, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thought using the Nativity Story as a bludgeon was the way to go.

Ouch. That’ll leave a mark.

It’s a sad thing when an incoming Congresscritter demonstrates how little she knows about history. Remember her comments about World War II and global warming? And let’s not forget that she compared illegal immigrants at the San Diego border to Jews fleeing the Holocaust. 

This is where we are. A person who will be attempting to govern, and tax the hell out of us, who is literally showing us every single day that she knows exactly NOTHING.

2019 is going to be lit guys. LIT.

    Caesar was a progressive, obviously. “Taxed” and “all the world”.

    Jesus wasn’t forced to flee due to violence.
    Uh, yeah, he was. Having all the boys under 2yo killed is sorta the epitome of violence. The fact they were warned about it and fled doesn’t negate that it was because of the violence.

    So again, not a refugee trying to get into a country illegally.
    Well, the rules were different in Egypt in those days. They generally didn’t preclude random folks crossing borders.
    However, crossing a border also didn’t make one a citizen in those days.

    As a note to O-C, God really doesn’t like being used for other people’s agendas. Stop it.

      Look buddy she said refugees in a manger. You’re wrong. That came later.

      • GWB says:

        I didn’t state anything about that. I was responding to one of her critics who said a stupid thing (“Jesus wasn’t forced to flee due to violence.”).

        Just because you’re criticizing an idiot doesn’t mean you, yourself, can play loose with the facts.

        (And, yes, I’m well aware of the Wise Men not showing up at the manger, and that Jesus was almost two when Herod tried to kill him.)

  • Freddie Sykes says:

    The Holy Family fleeing to Egypt would be analogous to someone fleeing Texas and going to New Mexico. Israel and Egypt were both provinces of the Roman Empire as Texas and New Mexico are each states in the United States; no foreign borders were crossed. Although the Gospels do not feel it worth mentioning, Joseph most probably supported his family in Egypt with his God given talents as a carpenter.

    I personally have no problem with immigration as long as there are health and background checks, the people are self sufficient or sponsored by groups or individuals who will guarantee they will receive no means tested government benefits and they agree in advance to expedited deportation if they commit any serious crimes – as judged by us – or vote illegally in our elections. These would be the types of people we want rather than those seeking a life of welfare and / or crime.

    Obviously either never read the Bible or doesn’t understood what she reads.
    I’m betting on both.

    I wonder how they got past the Berlin wall that the Picts built on the southern border to foster good will and fellowship?
