Democrats sunk to a new low in their push to allow the migrant caravan to invade America.
One of the party’s top stars just told an awful lie about Jesus to justify waving thousands of migrants into the United States.
And their jaw-dropping comment will make your blood boil.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the Democrats fastest rising stars.
The 29-year-old, self-described Democrat socialist won an upset primary challenge against the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives.
Because of her ability to check the right identity politics boxes and her commitment to imposing socialism in the United States, many observers – including Tucker Carlson – believe she is the future of the Democrat Party.
However, Ocasio-Cortez is building a reputation as not the brightest bulb in the bunch.
She famously flubbed naming the three branches of government.
And Ocasio-Cortez is back at it again.
This time she offended millions of Christians by lying about the story of Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem where Mary gave birth to Christ.
“Joy to the World!” Ocasio Cortez wrote on Twitter. “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 is not the first leftist to bungle this story.
Invariably, many Democrats try to claim every Christmas that Mary and Joseph were “undocumented immigrants” and compare Jesus’s birth to that of an anchor baby.
But this is false.
Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem because Roman Emperor Caesar Augustus ordered everyone to register with the government as part of a census.
“In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child.” (Luke 2:1-5)
Mary and Joseph were not illegal aliens.
Joseph journeyed to Bethlehem with Mary because that was the home of his ancestors.
Ocasio-Cortez could not have been more wrong.
And she put her ignorance on full display.
Liberals also point to the story of Mary and Joseph taking baby Jesus and fleeing Judea for Egypt after King Herod orders the massacre of the innocents.
The left equates this journey similar to illegal aliens fleeing Central America’s gang violence to seek refuge in America.
This also falls apart.
Egypt and Judea were provinces of the Roman Empire.
They were not two independent nations with their own sovereign borders.
Liberals like Ocasio-Cortez love to try and use Biblical stories to claim conservatives are hypocrites for opposing the left-wing agenda.
But when they lie or purposefully misrepresent the sacred text, they expose their ignorance and true contempt for Christians.
