Pelosi: Americans Should Welcome Illegals Because Jesus, or Something

The Democrat House Minority Leader finds Jesus, and promptly politicizes Him.

Nancy Pelosi has build a reputation for saying the darndest things. She added to that brand late last week, as Breitbart reports:

[The House Minority Leader] doubled down on her comments that Americans should view the flood of children crossing the border while claiming refugee status just like baby Jesus.

“You could even speak about, if it’s your tradition, Moses,” she said. “What would we do if Moses had not been accepted by the pharaoh’s family? We wouldn’t have the Ten Commandments for starters.”

Pelosi expounded, claiming that “we have [biblical] examples of humanitarian assistance that should guide us in all this.” It leaves you to wonder whether Pelosi has actually read a bible, or if she’s just patching together random word pictures snatched from vaguely recalled references.

If you’re having trouble recalling how the stories of the infants Jesus and Moses apply to immigration policy, it’s because they don’t. If anything, both tales highlight the malevolence of a lawless state.

If Pelosi really thinks the bible calls us to take in tens of thousands of children in need, she won’t mind them settling down in her neighborhood. Surely, the radical voters who continue electing her would be more than willing to put their money where their elected mouthpiece is.

The Left has already worked Nativity scenes on behalf of "homelessness" and the "Palestinians."

Just wait until the "Nativistivity scenes" they put together to attack the "nativist" opponents of the Moppet Horde™.

Jesus had much to say on the subject of charity but he never said or implied that charity involves submission to scams concocted by cynical politicians whose faith lies exclusively in their own egos and will to power.

Pelosi had to avoid the Catholic Church during the lenten WASHING OF FEET PHOTO OP to go to a Protestant one because of her apostasy i.e. Abortion /contraception pushing.... and unlike Pelosi Jesus said in JOHN that if you do not ENTER THROUGH THE GATE (legally) you are a THIEF AND A LIAR.
So much for your illegal invaders Nancy

Funny, isn't it, how those buses pull up to Murietta and not to Nob Hill?

Besides her palatial Pacific Heights mansion, she has the ginormous estate in the Napa Valley, which could easily accommodate these thousands.

Pelosi's understanding of her faith is childish. Notice I don't say childlike; in some contexts that would be a good thing. No, it's childish - as in never grew up, is still completely immature. Therefore, since she can't get it right, she should keep silent about it in public and do some studying and praying.

Unlike Nancy, Jesus supported the family. Though He was God, He grew up in a family. Jesus would tell us to reunite these children with their families.

1. Moses was not a refugee.
His grandfather Kohath, his great-grandfather Levi, and his great-great-grandfather Jacob were refugees.
That would, if you get stupid, make his father Amran an anchor baby.
Of course since Jacob and his household had been welcomed into Egypt and granted lands, Amran was born a full and legal resident.
When we finally get to Moses, he was a 2nd generation birth. However;

2. Moses only had to be accepted by Pharoah's family because Pharaoh had ordered the extermination of all males born to Jews. He had of course done this after he had ordered the enslavement of the Jews.
This is akin to suggesting that say . . . after the U.S. signed treaties with Indians, it is only because Indian children were forcibly taken from their parents and placed in boarding schools that we have . . . something.
But then such cultural atrocities are pretty much the default for proglodytes, so no wonder San Fran Nan would speak of it so glowingly.

3. Jesus was also a refugee solely because of an extermination order.
The thing is, the Egypt he went to was also a Roman province, just like the Galilee that he had left.
That is somewhat like suggesting we are lucky people in Texas allow "refuges" fleeing from the economic devastation in the People's Republic of Alta California.
. . .
Okay, that IS rather generous.
It is still, you know, required by the Constitution and stuff, without any principle of "charity" or what not having to get involved.

4. Oh, and by the way . . . aside from the slavery and genocide involved with Moses, it was only when he rejected being assimilated as an Egyptian that the chain of events began that led to him getting the 10 Commandments.
And, along with the 10 Commandments, Moses got the treasures of Egypt.
So . . . she wants to take advantage of someone else engaging in genocide to perpetrate the cultural ravishment of refugee children in expectation of one of those children returning to their culture, pillaging the wealth of the country, and establishing a renewed homeland in their ancestral lands, which we are regularly informed is the American southwest.


I suppose I can understand her not knowing about what Jews believes, but also confusing details of her own alleged faith?
And being so stupid as to pick an example that meshes with the La Raza playbook?
That's a certain special level of proglodyte stupidity.

It is evidence that we have no real government to rely on, until we participate fully -citizens

Actually, she's correct: it is entirely Christian to welcome orphans (temporarily or actually) with open arms and homes, and tend to their hurts.

I don't think the government minders, however, are permitting that to take place. They invited the burden of the "children" (many of whom aren't), and the last thing they want to is to surrender control so something other than the soulless state can love them.

Pelosi is perhaps one of the most-Pharisaical means to deliver the admonition, but it is correct, if inaccurately presented.
