Shaun King, who fancies himself a “Civil Rights activist” is best-known as a major proponent of Black Lives Matter. King is demanding the “woke mob” now turn their destruction onto “white” statues of Jesus Christ, which he claims is a symbol of “white supremacy.” Well, poor Shaun didn’t know what hit him as patriots utterly destroyed him. You’ll love this.
Leftwing extremist Shaun King tweeted Monday all statues of Jesus that portray him as a “white European” should be torn down because they are “a form of white supremacy.”
“Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down,” wrote King, a self-described black man whose family says he is white. “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? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them 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.

Tear them down.

“Yes. All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down,” he continued, reported Fox News. “They are a gross form of white supremacy. Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda. They should all come down.”
Since 2015, King has claimed the Christian celebrations of Christmas and Easter are “tools of white supremacy.” King also received a scholarship from Oprah Winfrey to attend Morehouse College, a historically black school, and then denied lying about his race when he applied for the grant.
He is one piece of work along the lines of charlatans like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
King also was a pastor at Total Grace Christian Center in DeKalb County, Georgia before he left and joined the BLM movement. He has been caught several times attempting to raise monies for causes that never pan out.
All of these radical leftist “revolutions” always end with the attempt to destroy religion in general, but they really hate Christianity. This tactic is a basic tenet of Marxist philosophy. In fact, the same people who were behind the “Arab Spring” of 2010 are the same people now behind this BLM movement in America.
Yep, it’s Barack Obama and his cronies. “The ideological interests behind the 2010 ‘Arab Spring’ uprising are the exact same ideological interests behind the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests/uprising. Not merely similar people, but the exact same people,” Conservative Treehouse reports.
“In 2010 the Muslim Brotherhood had al-Qaeda and militant factions within ISIS. In 2020 BLM has New Black Panthers and militant factions within Antifa,” they add. “In 2010 the Brotherhood destroyed the notions of secularism and viciously attacked any form of Christianity. In 2020 BLM advocates against secularism and viciously attacks Christianity, while conspicuously never criticizing any element of Islam.”
King fails to address the history behind these depictions. He has also not addressed whether the thousands of African, Asian, Indigenous, and Indian depictions of Jesus support racial superiority as well.
This is the “transformation” Obama promised. Well, patriotic Americans are destroying the movement by calling out King’s fanaticism.
“So now the woke mob wants to shatter stained glass windows and tear down religious artwork. Surprised we didn’t get here sooner. What next, tearing down churches?” tweeted Senator Josh Hawley.

“Christianity is under attack. Beyond Shaun King’s calls to tear down ‘racist statues’ of Jesus and smash the stained glass, here’s The Guardian calling for a removal of an ‘offensive’ image of St. Michael standing atop the Devil himself,” tweeted Ian Miles Cheong.

“Just this morning someone in my Twitter feed predicted this would happen — you can’t make it up – Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King says statues of Jesus Christ should be torn down — but just the white ones,” tweeted David Limbaugh.

“Jesus was an Israelite. If you want to make him blonde, black, or Korean because it helps people identify with him and spread the word, I’m for it. You don’t however, get to call him a ‘white supremacist’ and demand his removal without hell to pay,” tweeted Mindy Robinson.

Shaun King proved why this crazed BLM movement will be soundly rejected by the vast majority of Americans.
Attacking Jesus Christ as a symbol of “white supremacy” is beyond the pale. Anyone with half a brain understands the historical context of statutes of Jesus. He has been depicted by historical artists that closely resemble their own ethnic background.
We all know Christ was born in the Middle East to a Jewish mother. There is no mention of His physical appearance in the Bible.
So, leave it to the Marxists like Shaun King to attempt to draw Our Lord into this political battle. If there is one thing we do know about Jesus Christ, He would not be on the side of Shaun King and Black Lives Matter. Any movement based on violence, total destruction, and racial division is surely not from God.
