Our favorite socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is at it again.
This time she decided it would be a good idea to politicize Christmas and the birth of Jesus.
Of course, as usual, she got it completely wrong.
Take a look at this:
“Joy to the World!
Merry Christmas everyone – here’s to a holiday filled with happiness, family, and love for all people. 🌎(Including refugee babies in mangers + their parents.)”

Are you kidding me?!
Does this woman ever stop and listen to herself?
She tries to politicize Christmas by making the point that Jesus and his parents were refugees, but as we all know, of course, they were not.
Joseph and Mary were on the move to participate in a state-ordered census, and her assertion is nonsense.
As you might expect she got roasted alive on Twitter for this:
…..Do you know anything….your ignorance of history is breathtaking

Returning to his BIRTH PLACE, to be counted for taxes…. Fleeing came later

It’s not Ms. Ocasio’s fault that she is technically and historically wrong on this point. It’s the voters in her District that got it wrong.

So, not only after you not an expert in geo-politics, you also don't know anything about the Bible.
I'm assuming that it's because you haven't read any of it. Read Luke 2 (or even watch the Peanuts Christmas). They had to go to Bethlehem because that's where Joseph was from.

Please crack open a Bible and look for yourself instead of hitting a google search bar. In this context, they were NOT refugees. They were registering for a census. They did flee to Egypt because the King ordered for all young boys to be killed. Is that happening now?
