Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King ignited a firestorm of backlash when he declared that some statues of Jesus Christ are a form of “white supremacy” and should be torn down.

Amid a frenzy to tear down historic statues and monuments that the left now finds offensive, King outrageously told his 1.1 million Twitter followers Monday that statues of the “white European they claim is Jesus” can be included, setting off a wave of anger.

The far-left activist posted a series of tweets advocating the tearing down of Christian symbols of Jesus – but only the ones depicting him as white.

“In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Demark. Tear them down,” he wrote, claiming those statues “always have been” supporting white supremacy.

He doubled down in another tweet, calling for the removal of even murals and stained glass windows that depict a “white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends,” claiming they were “created as tools of oppression” and “racist propaganda.”

When King came under fire for attempting to erase Christianity, he shot back at critics, denying the accusations while standing by his remarks.

“If your religion requires Jesus to be a blonde haired blue eyed Jesus, then your religion is not Christianity, but white supremacy,” King tweeted on Monday. “Christian whiteness, not white Christianity, has been the primary religion of this country for hundreds of years.”

He even went on in his comments to mock and criticize those who defended their faith and the obvious attacks on it like King’s.

He posted acceptable images and declared “the European man you claim is Jesus is a tool of white supremacy.”

King, who was once accused of falsely portraying himself as black, included his past writings and reiterated that “White Jesus is a figment of the white supremacist imagination.”

Arguments with King pointing out that Jesus has long been depicted with characteristics of different cultures fell on deaf ears, apparently.

The backlash continued on Twitter where many warned of the striking similarities to other moments in hsitory.
