Black Lives Matter’s Shaun King Demands Destruction of Churches, Statues of Jesus

Shaun King, the far-left activist and one of the leaders of Black Lives Matter, has publicly called for the destruction of religious symbols, including stained glass windows and statues of Jesus, as reported by Breitbart.

King made the outrageous statements on Twitter Monday, falsely calling statues of Jesus “a form of white supremacy,” and that “all murals and stained glass windows of Jesus…should also come down.” He further claimed, without evidence, that such symbols were created “as tools of oppression” and “racist propaganda.”

King rose to prominence with the Black Lives Matter movement, but came to notoriety for the revelation that he is actually white, despite claiming for years that he is black, having gone out of his way to shave his head into a more traditionally “black” hairstyle. King has seen a resurgence of his own profile in recent weeks simultaneous with the return of Black Lives Matter, when he shared the viral video of the death of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia, falsely claiming that Arbery was hunted down and killed just for being black.

King’s sentiments reflect the ongoing war on America’s monuments by the far-left, which have attacked and destroyed statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Saint Junipero Serra, and others across the country and around the world.
