Who did Jesus pick in the Super Bowl?

And why would progressives call him fascist?

Not that the world is awaiting our verdict, but the Faceless Bureaucrats at Blaska Policy Werkes have declared a winner. Or two winners; it’s a tie. Our favorite Super Bowl #57 commercials are (Griswold family drum roll here): the two “Jesus Gets Us” spots: “Be Childlike” and “Love Your Enemies.”

Not that we’re all that religious here at the Stately Manor. (Forgive us, Father. But our last confession was before Vatican 2.) But the two spots — “Childlike” at 30 seconds and “Enemies” at 60 — were well produced: clean, effective, a montage of all kinds of people in black and white living the Savior’s message. A welcome message in a world of broken glass and shouted insults. Maybe not seen on primetime American television since A Charlie Brown Christmas in 1965?

Is it possible to sell love and tolerance amid the most violent sport except for boxing? In a commercial field dominated by beer, nachos, and horsepower? Where the halftime “entertainment” shows dancers fake humping the singer Rihanna?

This being the USA 2023 (or MMXXIII), Love Thy Neighbor is a controversial subject. Where does He stand on January 6? On the 1619 Project? On Alex Baldwin? What are His (?) pronouns? The Anglican Church would like to know.

The help thy neighbor image of a little boy standing on another little kid so he can reach the urinal — controversial?

We’re seeing caviling that the big bucks spent on airing 90 seconds during the Super Bowl could have fed Somalia for a week. (Admittedly churlish, our attitude toward earthquake victims in Syria is: Let Russia help them.) Being largely financed by the Hobby Lobby people, some on the divisive Left denounce Jesus Gets Us as right-wing propaganda! Leave it to A.O.C. to widen the culture gap by declaring: “Something tells me Jesus would *not* spend millions of dollars on Super Bowl ads to make fascism look benign.”

The Werkes would like to know exactly WHAT that “something that told her” was!

For the record, our other favorites: 

• “Let’s Say ‘Thank You’ to Canada” The spot were music rocker David Groh promotes all things Canada, from Martin Short, to poutine (cheese and gravy on french fries!), to Crown Royal whisky

• Premature Electrification is worth talking about —  the take-off of … well, you know … for Ram trucks..

• The lonely dog trashing the house after his people leave every morning — saved by the Amazon delivery of … another dog for companionship.

• Young couple (Miles Teller and wife) enjoying a frisky dance while awaiting an interminable Please Hold, Your Call Is Important to Us. For Bud Lite.

• Eve, cheek bulging, telling Adam “I might have taken a small bite” in the garden for Mexican avocados.

Oh, and what a great game! Final Score: Kansas City Chiefs XXXVIII, Philadelphia Eagles XXXV.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Anyone remember when Barack Obama claimed Democrats worshiped “a powerful God”? 

Who do YOU pick?

    Even the lovely and long suffering Mrs. Gotch (a career Lefty, she!) thought that was tastelessly weird.

    But tastelessly weird is despicable Lefty’s target audience; the 57-Genders/Big Hairy Guys in Li’l Girls’ Rooms/Groomin’-n-Recruitin’/Let Teachers Decide Your Child’s Gender/Lack LIES Matter demographic.

    I wonder what the posts would say if the ad was “Muhammad gets us.”


    • Cornelius_Gotchberg says:

      Even half-witted ‘tards get that Muhammad was a mass murdering pedophile.

      Try harder, idiot!

        You mean the same thing the Spanish did when they came to the Americas. Or was it the crusaders for god in the middle east. Or: on and on.

    This post would uphold freedom of expression, Richard, which the left is progressively less likely to do these days. (See Twitter’s shameful shutting down of a newspaper’s Twitter account before the 2020 presidential election, with the federal government intelligence community’s equally shameful assist.)

    Besides, it’s worth asking the women of Afghanistan in 2023 about how much Islam “gets” women.

    But one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, who would betray Him, said, “Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it.

    John 12:4-6

    “The help thy neighbor image of a little boy standing on another little kid so he can reach the urinal —”

    Why are you “gendering” this person without first asking them their pronouns?

    When I look at the picture, I just see two young lesbians with stylish haircuts, (probably bright blue), trying to negotiate a modern “woke” Ladies Room, where two of the stalls have been replaced with urinals. It is just a fact that some girls sport “tube-age”, and all others must stand very, very, close. Womxn everywhere enthusiastically welcome these inclusive changes, — and so should we.

    I wonder how controversial that photo of the two little boys at the urinal would be if the one on the bottom was black. Actually, no, I don’t.

    Great post!
    The “Love Your Enemies” spot was very powerful and very NOT fascist. Glad you brought it up.

    I would question the home life and parental training of the two boys. And the common sense of the ad maker.
    1: Parents, at least mine, and as we have taught our kids and grandkids, would have taught those two young fellas not to touch the floor in front of a public urinal and, 2: why not take a few steps to the right and use the toilet stall as that would be less of a vertical challenge?

    Certainly the folks at Hobby Lobby and their ad agency could have come up with a more realistic and sanitary image for the money they spent.


    • richard lesiak says:

      saw that ad and wondered; what would Jesus do?


      • Kevin S Wymore says:

        Jesus Christ would preach the Good News, which is the point of Blaska the Evangelist’s blog. Jesus came among us to save sinners, and that’s why we are talking “Jesus Gets Us” here.
