Ocasio-Cortez: Jesus Was a “Refugee”

Socialist Rep-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter on Tuesday to politicize Christmas and Christ himself…complete with a bit of hyperbole. “Joy to the World!” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Merry Christmas everyone – here’s to a holiday filled with happiness, family, and love for all people. (Including refugee babies in mangers + their parents.)” She was quickly fact-checked that Jesus was not a refugee baby nor were his parents, Mary and Joseph, seeking asylum, as they were in Bethlehem to participate in Roman emperor Augustus’ census but found themselves without a place to stay. The Left loves to torture history so that it fits nicely into their political agenda. We should also point out that Emperor Augustus maintained unbelievably low taxes to encourage economic development. Memo to AOC: you’re doing it wrong!

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Democratic socialist Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced intense backlash on Tuesday after she decided to politicize Christmas by making false claims about Jesus.

“Joy to the World!” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “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’s claim that Jesus was a refugee baby in a manger is categorically false, as Fox News’ Samuel Chamberlain explains.
