Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) reportedly mocked a Super Bowl message of hope and love from a Christian organization, comparing the advertisements glorifying Jesus Christ to “fascism”
As part of the “He Gets Us” campaign, the charity Servant Foundation funded two Super Bowl advertisements.
The first included images of children in positivel settings, such as black and white children cuddling, as well as a moving shot from 2019 of Aubrey Burge, 5, consoling her 4-year-old brother while he received chemotherapy.
Millions of viewers of various religions were moved by the messages, but not AOC.
“Something tells me Jesus would *not* spend millions of dollars on Super Bowl ads to make fascism look benign,” Cortez tweeted out after the ad was aired.
Hobby Lobby founder David Green, a fervent Christian and one of the campaign’s key donors, stated that the group hoped to reach the largest audience of the year with its plea for love and compassion.
Some of the 30-second Super Bowl commercial spaces reportedly went for more than $7 million.
