DNC Speaker Rev. William Barber Got Jesus WRONG

0

Perhaps when he was studying to be a minister, Rev. William Barber skipped the class on Jesus and history. Either that or he flunked it, because a statement he made on the fourth night of the DNC was factually impossible:

Jesus, a brown-skinned Palestinian Jew called us to preach good news to the poor, the broken, and the bruised, and all those who are made to feel unexpected.

Rev. William Barber II spoke to the audience at the Democratic Convention on Thursday night. His speech was filled with the usual progressive “social justice” pleas with comments such as, “We need to embrace our deepest moral values and push for a revival of the heart of our democracy” and, “We are being called, like our mothers and fathers, to be the moral defibrillators of our time.” He even called for bi-partisanship, “Some issues are not left versus right or liberal versus conservative, they are right versus wrong,” which is an interesting phrase for a man who once called Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) a ventriloquist dummy:

“A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” Barber said. He said “the extreme right wing down here (in South Carolina) finds a black guy to be senator and claims he’s the first black senator since Reconstruction and then he goes to Washington, D.C., and articulates the agenda of the Tea Party.”

But to be honest, one would expect those kind of social justice phases from Barber. What one doesn’t expect is for Barber to be wrong about Jesus. During his DNC Speech he received cheers when he said:

Jesus, a brown-skinned Palestinian Jew called us to preach good news to the poor, the broken, and the bruised, and all those who are made to feel unexpected.

Being Jewish and living around 2,000 years after Jesus’ death I can’t speak to what Jesus taught or the color of his skin. But considering when and where he lived Barber’s description of Jesus’ physical appearance is probably correct. In fact scientists who have looked into it believe that Jesus looked like a typical Middle Eastern Judean, as opposed to the way he is normally portrayed as a European.
