AOC Freaks Out Over Christian Super Bowl Ads, Claims ‘Fascism’

This is absurd.

While fans of the Philadelphia Eagles will certainly be stewing over a controversial holding call in the dwindling moments of the Super Bowl this week, one of America’s most precocious politicians is feigning fury of her own…but this time over a series of faith-based advertisements shown during the big game.

And, worse still, she is desperately trying to equate Christianity to fascism.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Sunday she did not believe Jesus would support pro-Christian Super Bowl commercials because they make fascism “look benign.”

The Christian group “He Gets Us” spent some $20 million on two advertisements that aired during Sunday’s Super Bowl portraying Jesus Christ as loving “the people we hate.”

AOC was unwilling to see the message as a positive one.

“Something tells me Jesus would *not* spend millions of dollars on Super Bowl ads to make fascism look benign,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.

The Democrat seemed to be using the advertisements as a way to attack one of the nation’s most influential and religious families.

It is unclear where Ms. Ocasio-Cortez sees the hidden “fascism” lurking behind these ads, designed to help overcome divisions and hatred in the name of Jesus.

Perhaps she takes issue with the fact that the advertising campaign was funded in part by the family behind Hobby Lobby, as well as Christian groups and other anonymous donors. According to CNN, the ad campaign “has connections to anti-LGBT and anti-abortion laws” because The Servant Foundation that oversees the campaign “has donated tens of millions to the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian legal group.”

The two Super Bowl ads were meant to focus on “the behavior Jesus modeled in relationship and conflict,” He Gets Us spokesman Jason Vanderground told Catholic News Agency (CNA).

The Congresswoman’s complaints are so outlandish that it’s hard to suggest that this isn’t just another cry for attention.
