What if everything you had been told about the nativity story was false? What if the white supremacist, patriarchal power structure had managed to keep the real story of Christ’s birth hidden under a veil of racism, sexism, and other forms of bigotry?
Unfortunately, this is exactly what has happened to the true story of Christmas. You see, racist conservatives have engaged in a centuries-long campaign to “whitewash” the nativity story, and only now has the legitimate retelling been discovered.
A cadre of intrepid young progressive scholars has been hard at work deciphering the scriptures to reveal the true meaning of the holiday season. Now, they have revealed their findings and given Liberty Nation the opportunity to impart the genuine tale of Christmas to the world.
Jesus Was Born In Palestine, Not Israel
It is a commonly held belief that Jesus was a Jewish carpenter born in Bethlehem, Israel. This is not accurate. At the time the Roman Empire controlled the region of Judea and Samaria, but they had given it the name “Palestine.” This means that Jesus was not a Jew, but a Palestinian! Just look at any map today and you will clearly see that Bethlehem is located in the West Bank, a Palestinian territory, and not Israel.
This information has tremendous ramifications and indicates that if Jesus walked the Earth today, he would probably be a proud member of Hamas. Could this mean that he would support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) movement, which accuses Israel of being an apartheid-state? Of course he would, because he knew what it was like to be oppressed by the white supremacists who ran the Roman Empire – which leads us to the next discovery.
Open Borders Saved Jesus
The Gospels tell the story of the events surrounding the birth of Jesus. In particular, they highlight the cruelty exhibited by King Herod, who ruled the client kingdom of Palestine with an iron fist.
When word came that the savior of the world would be born in Palestine, the king ordered the deaths of all male infants who had recently been born. Apparently, he feared the Messiah would threaten his grasp over the kingdom.
Herod’s massacre of children, while widespread, did not succeed in killing Jesus, whose parents fled to Egypt to escape the king’s wrath because of the enlightened open borders policy of Egypt.
Thus, the family traveled to Egypt as undocumented immigrants without being turned away. There were no walls. The country did not have an Egyptian version of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Because of their humane policy, Jesus survived.
Unfortunately, if another savior were born in this day and age, and they wanted to come to the United States illegally, the white supremacist power structure would prevent their entry. Conservatives are literally making sure that another Jesus could never exist, with their xenophobic immigration policies!
After the death of King Herod, Joseph and Mary journeyed back to Palestine with Jesus, where they could now raise their family without being threatened. The fact that a brown family could thrive under the yoke of the white supremacist Roman Empire and the bigoted Jews-who-kill–Palestinians-for-sport is nothing short of a miracle.
The True Meaning of Christmas
When one digs deeper into the scriptures, it is not difficult to see that the birth of Christ wasn’t about salvation from humanity’s sins. It was about being saved from racism and the Zionist conspiracy. Unfortunately, conservatives have buried this information for centuries.
But now, thanks to the unmatched courage of the progressive movement, the world can finally know the truth. So instead of celebrating the birth of Jesus, we should dedicate our holiday reflection to the many sins of white supremacy and consider how it has oppressed the poor and disaffected among us – including Jesus.Feel free to comment below.
