Black Lives Matter activists are expanding their calls for destruction of public and private property to depictions of Jesus Christ.
Shaun King, a leading agitator within the Black Lives Matter movement, tweeted that “European” depictions of Jesus Christ should be taken down and said that this was a form of “white supremacy.”
It’s unclear if Mr. King is actually black, having himself been part of a major racial furore concerning his lineage and how he presents himself to Black Americans.
Nevertheless, King doubled down after taking heat by stating: “Yes. All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down. They are a gross form white supremacy. Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda. They should all come down.”
Yes, 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?
Tear them down.

Nikole Hannah-Jones, ironically a Pulitzer Prize winner for her factually challenged 1619 Project at the NYT, justified the Black Lives Matter riots earlier this month claiming that vandalism and looting were not “violence.”
Black Lives Matter activists and leaders have been not only promoting violence and destruction, but also calling for other extremist measures like abolishing and defunding the police.
Not a single Democrat official has yet condemn the Black Lives Matter riots.
King’s call for destruction of religious symbols comes after almost a month of rioting, looting, and destruction in almost all of America’s major cities.
Rioters have moved beyond toppling statues of confederate soldiers and have begun attacking statues of many of important figures in American history — including George Washington, Christopher Columbus, even abolitionist John Brown (who took over an American military base in Harpers Ferry, WV with the aim of ending slavery).
BLM activists are even calling for statues of Abraham Lincoln to be torn down — the President who ended slavery.
Taking on confederates is clearly not enough to satisfy BLM.
Perhaps because the organization has very little to do with black lives at all.
The entity never critiques the thousands of black babies’ lives lost to abortion every week in the United States, and has yet to comment on the spate of black-on-black shootings in Chicago.
Their leaders even openly admit to being radical Marxists.
Meanwhile, well documented racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger still stands proudly in the Smithsonian.
Maybe they will come for her after taking down every statue of Christ.
