AOC Mocked After Criticizing Ads About Jesus During the Super Bowl


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) angered Twitter after she criticized ads about Jesus featured during the Super Bowl.

She tweeted on Sunday, “Something tells me Jesus would not spend millions of dollars on Super Bowl ads to make fascism look benign.”

The Twitter account for podcast Chicks on The Right replied, “Something tells me socialists wouldn’t charge people for tickets to rail against capitalism like your buddy Bernie, but here we are.”

Columnist for Town Hall Derek Hunter wrote, “She’s thinks Jesus would spend those millions to elect Democrats to make sure their fascism has an impact!”

Political commentator Dan Bongino tweeted, “Lol,” followed by clown emojis.

Is this surprising to you?

One tweet argued it is “entirely unsurprising that [AOC] would equate a message of promoting unity with ‘fascism’. Because clearly that Super Bowl ad promoted fascism.”

Writer Chad Felix Greene responded, “Honey, what now.”

Researcher Tarah Price said, “Something tells me [AOC] doesn’t know Jesus or the definition of fascism.”

In case you missed it:

The ads aired during the game as a part of the “He Gets Us” campaign, as IJR reported.

Jason Vanderground, spokesperson for the “He Gets Us” campaign, said, “It fits with our target audience really well.”

He added, “We’re trying to get the message across to people who are spiritually open, but skeptical.”

Vanderground shared that they “think Jesus is a big deal and we want to make a big deal out of it.”

He continued, “What better way to do that than to put him in the biggest cultural moment that we have the entire year?”

The campaign launched in March of last year and is funded by Hobby Lobby CEO David Green and other donors who are anonymous.

Vanderground explained, “Funding for the campaign comes from a diverse group of individuals and entities with a common goal of sharing Jesus’ story authentically.”
