Then They Came for Jesus

2020 June 23
by bc3b

The left started with destruction of Confederate monuments. President Trump correctly predicted they would soon be destroying monuments to Washington and Jefferson. In addition, rioters have destroyed monuments to Lincoln, US Grant, World War I and World War II casualties and  an all-black unit from Massachusetts that fought for the Union. Even the statue of St. Junipero Serra, who established missions throughout California, wasn’t safe from the hoard.

Now they are coming for Jesus.

Far-left activist Shaun King on Monday said all images depicting Jesus as a “white European” should be torn down because they are a form of “white supremacy.”

King made his remarks over a series of Twitter posts as historic monuments and statues have become the targets of anger and vandalism during Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death while in police custody late last month.

King followed the post up with another, saying that “white Jesus is a lie” and a “tool of white supremacy” created to help white people use Christianity as a “tool of oppression. He added that white people would never have accepted a religion “from a Brown man.”

King then tweeted support from taking down all imagery, including “murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends.”

Reactions on Twitter were mixed. Some agreed with King’s position, while others pointed out that cultures other than white Europeans have depicted Jesus in ways that resembled the local community.

(snip)

King was once a leading voice in the Black Lives Matter movement but fell from grace when his race was questioned and he was accused of being a Caucasian falsely portraying himself as black.

“I have been told for most of my life that the white man on my birth certificate is not my biological father and that my actual biological father is a light-skinned black man. My mother and I have discussed her affair. She was a young woman in a bad relationship and I have no judgment,” he wrote in 2015 amid reports that he misrepresented his race.

For those not familiar with Shaun King, he has a radio show and makes his living pushing black causes and spewing racial hatred. He claims to be half black although his birth certificate says he’s 100% honky.

Who ever would have thought this symbolizes white supremacy?

    In that PL story about MLB, a pair of comments as good as you’ll see today …

    “The Twins are likely in trouble. Nobody in their right mind will venture downtown Minneapolis these days, especially at night.”

    “Target Field has taken on a whole new meaning these days…”

    Police Brutality? It’s come down to this:

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2020/06/23/brutally-beaten-french-police-refuse-fight-back-due-concerns-police-brutality/

    No surprise the woman attacking the French officer was black. When have you read a story about a woman physically abusing a fast food employee because the order was wrong, the food was cold, etc, when the woman wasn’t black?

    Jean Paul Sartre once defined “Anguish” as: “The feeling of moral responsibility that accompanies the necessity to choose and the recognition that one will never receive a final judgment about the correctness of one’s choice.”

    Sartre’s conjecture/definition falls apart when the “choice” presented is a false one…as is the case in the current climate of ‘Virtue Signaling’ and ‘Virtue Shaming’. The mob informs us daily of what the CORRECT “choice” is (the “choice”changes as the mob sees fit), and many weak-willed opportunists immediately attempt to twist themselves into the correct attitude of submission & contrition.

    It turns out the only truly correct “choice”is NOT to choose…and then turn a deaf ear to the keening of the mob as they denounce you for not playing their diseased game. Oh, and maintain situational awareness, of course…for the mob WILL come for you.

    Isiah 9,

    17 Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

    18 For wickedness burneth as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke.

    19 Through the wrath of the Lord of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother.

    depicts too well what we are facing today.

    It appears the left has a new strategy for reducing attendance at Trump rallies – reserve tickets and not show.

    There’s a simple solution: require attendees arrive 30 minutes (1 hour ?) before the start of the rally. If you don’t show, you lose your seats to people waiting. Or, just have a first come-first seated rule.

    I’m pretty sure the Trump rallies have always been first come/first served. There are always no-shows, stuff happens. They often provide overflow areas with big screens if they think there will be too many showing up to accommodate in the main area.

    They could charge a nominal fee, like $1, and refund it at the door but I don’t think the pranksters are considered a problem. But I did read that technically what they did is illegal.

    More of a downside is polluted data. Parscale always harvests a lot of info and now some of it will be nonsense. In the past he’s been able to say stuff like “1 out 3 attendees is registered D” and “20% of the attendees say they’ve never voted” and stuff like that.

    “AOC’s district is the most diverse and one of the poorest congressional districts in the US.”

    And one of the lowest IQ LOL
    Last time through she beat a Dem who was in the leadership. I don’t recall the numbers but it was something like only 20% of the eligible voted and so her vote was, like, 12% of the district.
    So this showing is stronger for her.

    Sad for our country.

    Still, it’s notable that both parties have poorly served their respective bases. If anything, the Dems have screwed their people by being corrupt and not solving problems. Maybe this is part of the process to bring the Dems back to sanity.

    Sports award show viewer count plummets.

    https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2020/06/highlights-of-news_24.html
    ITEM 5: … Ratings for last weekend’s woke ESPY Awards crashed to the lowest numbers the show has ever recorded. The ESPYs only earned 482,000 viewers over both ESPN and ESPN2 combined, … The previous low occurred in 2011 when 1.98 million viewers tuned in, according to Sports Media Watch.”

    That was an 81% drop.

    In 2015, the ESPYs drew 7.7 million when it awarded Caitlyn Jenner its Arthur Ashe Courage Award. The annual shows ratings have fallen ever since. Get woke, become a joke.

    23,

    Again the best deterrent is ask for $5 to get a ticket. Either way you win. They pay and don’t show? You got a contribution. If they don’t want to pay, well then that solves the fake ticket attendee. Or you could treat the funds as a charity offering. Toys for Tots one rally, Salvation Army next rally, etc. all conservative causes.

    The deep Left will refuse just on ideological grounds.

    That’s hardly a joke. Take a look at IQ by country. By admitting a growing number of people from third world countries, we are lowering the country’s average IQ. In districts like AOC’s it is likely under 80:
