Following the death of a homeless man on a New York City subway train Monday when he was subdued by a former Marine, the left led by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) railed that he was “murdered,” “executed,” and “lynched” and now there’s a new take… martyrdom.
Self-proclaimed “virtual pastor” Justin Berkobien, who has a trans flag and pronouns in his Twitter bio, compared Jordan Neely to Jesus, tweeting, “Jesus is a 30 year old black man riding the subway hungry, thirsty, fed up.”
Evidently, he realized the hornets’ nest he just kicked over and said in a follow-up tweet, “I’ve never limited replies on a post until this one. Just had a feeling. A man made in God’s image died. He wasn’t perfect, but neither am I. It’s true I don’t know all the details. I’m not rushing to judgment. My imperfect poem says nothing of the killer.”
Perhaps he should have considered his tweet before he hit the send button. Sort of like not sinning before having to repent.

I’ve never limited replies on a post until this one. Just had a feeling.
A man made in God’s image died. He wasn’t perfect, but neither am I.
It’s true I don’t know all the details. I’m not rushing to judgment. My imperfect poem says nothing of the killer.

Berkobien went on to presume he knows what Jesus thinks, which some would contend is a sin in itself.
“I’m just sad. I think Jesus is sad too. I think we need spaces to be sad and not have all the answers and not have to defend our sadness,” he wrote. “I think if Jesus was willing to die in solidarity with the likes of Jordan Neely, the least we can do is carve out a little space where his name can be uttered, where his existence can be dignified, without a bunch of plank-eyes buzzing around pretending it’s okay to murder someone with priors. Do yourselves a favor and don’t look at the QTs. .”
The man’s death was a tragedy but someone might want to tell the good pastor that he had autism and schizophrenia and reportedly refused to take his meds. He also was arrested at least 44 times on charges such as assault and disorderly conduct, not to mention that he was allegedly prone to violence.
Many have little sympathy for Neely and his resultant death. The “virtual pastor” alluding to him as being a martyr and the black version of Jesus is also offensive to many out there and he’s not helping the situation.
The seeming deification of George Floyd appears to be the new “Summer of Love” rallying cry for the left.
According to the Daily Mail, Juan Alberto Vasquez, who was on the train and photographed the incident, said Neely yelled, “I don’t have food, I don’t have a drink, I’m fed up. I don’t mind going to jail and getting life in prison. I’m ready to die.”
That was just enough to transform the homeless man into a martyr for the left with strident calls for his subduer’s head on a platter.
Users on Twitter dragged Berkobien for his specious assertion that a violent homeless man with a long criminal record and a history of mental illness was akin to the Savior:

Fake pastors with trans flags and pronouns in bio are fucking amazing.
"God loves every part of ALL of us"
Lol. No he doesn't. He doesn't love our sin. He hates it, in fact. Deeply. To the point where he'd throw you in a pit of fire for all eternity if you don't repent. https://t.co/7J863iWDRO

Jesus didn't have money for a subway token.
And he was Jewish. https://t.co/cOauXoqib7

Was he assaulting senior citizens? Throwing people on the train tracks? Punching a dozen different women in the face? Just curious. https://t.co/VnHJwRLmQw
