Democrats and their liberal cohorts in the media have taken on a new tactic when it comes to selling the dangerous White House policy of accepting Syrian refugees – comparing them to Mary and Joseph trying to find shelter for the birth of baby Jesus.
Here are a couple of examples:
This refusing to offer refuge to fleeing Syrians reminds me of a story, something about a pregnant couple and innkeepers w/ no room? Anyone?

Texas Rep. Brian Babin appeared on Stephen K. Bannon’s Sirius XM radio program, and the host warned that this would become an even more extensive argument from the left as the holiday season comes into play.
Babin however, had the perfect response for anyone that wanted to go down that road.
“Mary and Jesus didn’t have suicide bomb vests strapped on them, and these folks do,” Babin said.
Take a listen …
“What they’re going to bring up over the holiday season is, ‘Mary and Joseph were refugees,’” said Bannon.
In response, Babin — who since October has opposed President Barack Obama’s “insane” efforts to admit up to 10,000 Syrian refugees to resettle across the United States — made his own religious comparison as a counterpoint.
“I would just say this,” he said. “Mary and Jesus didn’t have suicide bomb vests strapped on them, and these folks do. You can see it in technicolor in Paris.”
Comment: Do you think liberals will understand the difference between Syrian refugees and the biblical story of Mary and Joseph?
