“He Gets Us,” a Christian organization, invested approximately $20 million on two Super Bowl commercials portraying Jesus as compassionate towards people regardless of their political stance.
Nevertheless, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did not approve of the Jesus ad aired during Super Bowl 57, saying “Something tells me Jesus would *not* spend millions of dollars on Super Bowl ads to make fascism look benign.”
AOC endorsed a tweet alleging that the ad’s sponsor supports the right’s agenda to outlaw abortion and permit businesses to discriminate against LGBTQ+ individuals.
According to AOC, the advertisement was fascist since it presented numerous black and white photographs of people engaged in disagreements over topics such as lockdowns and politics.
The advertisement concluded with the phrase “Jesus loved the people we hate.”
According to their website, He Gets Us is a “movement to reintroduce people to the Jesus of the bible and his confounding love and forgiveness. We believe his words, example, and life have relevancy in our lives today and offer hope for a better future.”

Many Twitter users believed this ad helped exposed the left and their toxic agenda against Jesus.
Liberals are outraged and fuming over this Super Bowl commercial that talks about JESUS loving the people you hate. Liberals are full of hate and they just got exposed once again to be angry over this ad. pic.twitter.com/xSgVWPuf6A

Charlie Kirk is upset about the group ‘He Gets Us’ running two Super Bowl ads about Jesus, because he thinks they will falsely portray him espousing “left-wing, social justice messaging.” pic.twitter.com/76PNbPn2bo
