A Christian organization is pushing back against radical leftist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her attacks on their Super Bowl ads featuring positive messages of Jesus Christ.
AOC got roundly blasted on social media for her immediate hate of the ads.“Something tells me Jesus would *not* spend millions of dollars on Super Bowl ads to make fascism look benign,” AOC said, a classic what-if of Jesus from a non-follower. These people know nothing of the Bible but are suddenly experts when it comes to how Jesus would surely support their communist ideals.

Unsurprisingly, AOC missed the entire point of the ads – and even liberal talking points that appeared in them – based on her emotional reaction to anything having to do with Christianity.
Indeed, many Twitter comments wondered how AOC would have reacted had a Muslim organization spent $20 million on two ad spots to feature messages from the Quran or of the beliefs of their prophet Mohammed.
“Both portrayed Jesus as compassionate towards people regardless of their political stance. Some of the ad campaign’s other commercials even lean towards being liberal in outlook, painting Jesus as a refugee or migrant,” The American Tribune wrote.
In response to the ignorant remarks from the New York congresswoman, a spokesperson for He Gets Us, the Christian organization responsible for producing the two Super Bowl ads, stated that the goal of their efforts was to introduce people to Jesus from those who know him best. It directly supports the idea that most people in AOC’s world only know of the misrepresented messages of love and kindness through avowed non-believers.
“Our research shows that many people’s only exposure to Jesus is through Christians who reflect him imperfectly, and too often in ways that create a distorted or incomplete picture of his radical compassion and love for others,” He Gets Us spokesperson Jason Vanderground said in response to the hate from AOC and others in an interview with Fox News Digital. “We believe it’s more important now than ever for the real, authentic Jesus to be represented in the public marketplace as he is in the Bible.”
“On multiple occasions, Jesus used the term ‘childlike’ to refer to a humble and trusting attitude. Christians often refer to their faith as childlike, being humble enough to place one’s trust in a power greater than self,” he added.
According to their website, He Gets Us is a “movement to reintroduce people to the Jesus of the bible and his confounding love and forgiveness. We believe his words, example, and life have relevancy in our lives today and offer hope for a better future.”
Fox described the two ads, both harmless, innocuous, and full of positive messaging. The first one Fox said was that adults should model kindness to children.
The first one is 30 seconds and urges viewers to “be childlike” while showing children being helpful and kind to each other and animals. “Jesus didn’t want us to act like adults,” appears on the screen. “He gets us. All of us. Jesus.”
Fox described the second one as promoting inclusion.
The second ad is 60 seconds and is meant to promote inclusion amid perceived division. It shows people arguing and confronting each other angrily until “Jesus loved the people we hate” appears onscreen.
One wonders what AOC was so ruffled about. Of course, the left insists on their version of tolerance, which is really just a euphemism for get on board or shut up. Their tolerance extends only to those who drink their same Kool-Aid. The Biblical version of tolerance actually encompasses all peoples from all walks of life.
Obviously this doesn’t work for the left, which thrives only on silencing and punishing dissenting viewpoints.
