Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is under fire for her insane comments.
Her reaction to a message of love is utterly deranged.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was blasted for comparing Christianity to “fascism.”
The nonprofit Servant Foundation sponsored two Super Bowl commercials as part of the “He Gets Us” campaign which deeply offended Ocasio-Cortez.
The commercial from the “He Gets Us” campaign featured photos of children in heartwarming situations helping each other.
“Jesus didn’t want us to act like adults,” the narrator says as country singer Patsy Cline’s “If I Could See the World (Through The Eyes of a Child)” plays. “He gets us. All of us. Be childlike.”
The second commercial then showed adults fighting with each other before concluding, “Jesus loved the people we hate,” repeating, “He gets us. All of us.”
“Something tells me Jesus would not spend millions of dollars on Super Bowl ads to make fascism look benign,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.
“Something tells me Jesus would take issue with at least some of the things you have said, done, and vote for/against,” responded Republican campaign consultant Nathan Wurtzel.
“When you get really mad at the ‘don’t hate people’ ad,” quipped National Review senior writer Dan McLaughlin.
The “He Gets Us” website said that the campaign is “not ‘left’ or ‘right’ or a political organization of any kind” and that they’re also “not affiliated with any particular church or denomination.”
“We simply want everyone to understand the authentic Jesus as he’s depicted in the Bible — the Jesus of radical forgiveness, compassion, and love.”
Catholic League President Bill Donohue called the congresswoman’s criticism a sign of the times, saying, “Had these ads run on TV decades ago, few would blink. But not today.”
“Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez channeled Jesus, saying he would not ‘spend millions of dollars on Super Bowl ads to make fascism look benign,’” Donohue said in a statement. “AOC did not explain what was fascistic about either of the Christian commercials.”
Democratic strategist Sawyer Hackett also objected to the commercials, claiming that the money could have been better spent.
“With the money the ‘He Gets Us’ people spent on their right-wing Jesus ads, they could permanently house 1,563 people experiencing homelessness,” tweeted Mr. Hackett.
Donohue added that the reason that the left hated the commercials so much was because Hobby Lobby founder David Green, a devout evangelical Christian, was a major funder of the “He Gets Us” campaign.
“Both AOC and Fish made it clear, without being explicit, that they are perturbed because one of the organizations supporting the Jesus ads is Hobby Lobby, the evangelical-run store chain that won an important religious liberty victory in the U.S. Supreme Court,” Donohue said.
Hobby Lobby won a 2014 Supreme Court case challenging the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate.
