Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez created a stir on earlier this week when she posted a tweet criticizing Christian advertisement campaigns that aired during the Super Bowl. The “He Gets Us” campaign, which spent $20 million to air two commercials, inspired her reaction.
The first ad showed people from different backgrounds engaging in fights and arguments over political, religious, and justice issues. It ended with the tagline “Jesus loved the people we hate”. The second ad displayed various images of children demonstrating compassion and kindness. Its message was that “Jesus didn’t want us to act like adults” and his teaching of valuing childlike qualities counteracted popular culture at the time.
Ocasio-Cortez expressed her disapproval of the ads by claiming that Jesus would not have devoted such great amounts of money for making fascism look benign or palatable. Her tweet sparked intense conversations regarding its content as it had attained nearly 10 million views by Monday morning.
Some people agreed with her opinion while others took note of her own lack of self-awareness given the situation. Despite any controversy surrounding the campaign, its mission is clear…to make everyone understand authentic views of Jesus as depicted in the Bible, one based on radical forgiveness, compassion, and love.
As a Christian of almost 20 years now, I think that it is a small but important step to have a commercial like this show up for millions of people to see. The left has been doing everything they can to “kill God” so to speak, but God is what we all need and what we need to fix this broken country of ours. So let AOC cry like the little whiny brat that she is. One day, she too will bend a knee before the Creator of all things as will everyone other godless liberal who is trying to destroy this country.
