MSNBC readout Host Joy Reid is on a hot streak fanning the flames of divisiveness, with her top targets this week being the Jesus ad during Super Bowl LVII and, of course, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, one of her running favorites.
While some of us are looking forward to watching the highly anticipated Super Bowl commercial more than the game, Reid decided to rain on everyone’s parade in typical fashion. What could be so offensive that it is necessary?
Two advertisements from the Gospels promoting the love and humility of Jesus Christ
‘He Gets Us’ Jesus-themed Super Bowl ad
The offending ads are part of The Servant Foundation’s “He Gets Us” campaign According to the website, “He Gets Us” is “a movement to re-introduce people to the Jesus of the Bible.” The two Super Bowl spots cost the Servant Foundation more than ten million dollars.
The first ad, titled “Love Your Enemies,” speaks directly to the state of our nation. Which means it speaks against those who would seek to divide.
The second ad, “Be Like a Child”, focuses on children living with humility, compassion and gentleness like Jesus. Ask, “What can we learn from his example today?”
Joy Reid takes aim at Super Bowl ad about Jesus
The group’s website describes them as “a diverse group of people passionate about the authentic Jesus of the Bible”. Reid, however, described them as an “LGBTQ hate group” and condemned the Christian group for leading the “fight against abortion.”

Reid took aim at the campaign’s “supporters”, making a point of naming Hobby Lobby founder David Greene as a donor. Noting its status as a funder of “right-wing religious causes”. With his disdain for Christian causes on full display, he snipes, “Because his brand has never really been made before.”
Reid’s final blow came in the form of, “And I think it’s fair to say that Jesus Christ wouldn’t spend millions of dollars on television advertising to promote his image.”
However, “He Gets Us” spokesperson Jason Vanderground explained why they saw Super Bowl LVII as a perfect platform for their message. “It fits really well with our target audience,” Vanderground told The Associated Press about the ads “We’re trying to get the message across to people who are spiritually open, but skeptical.”
Not surprisingly, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s hatred has found an ally. Fellow liberal AOC sniped, “Something tells me Jesus wouldn’t spend millions of dollars on Super Bowl ads to make fascism look benign”.
Joy Reid sets her sights on ‘racist’ Ron DeSantis
Reid’s mockery of the Jesus-themed Super Bowl commercials was merely a bouch of fun before sinking his teeth into this week’s main entry. Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is his whale of the week.
DeSantis has made himself a prime target of the left-wing media with his sweeping reforms that run counter to the current liberal agenda. So of course, this isn’t Reid’s first time attacking a popular Republican governor.

Reid invited MSNBC analyst David Jolly, a former Republican congressman, to join his DeSantis bashing. Reid began by accusing DeSantis of directly and specifically attacking “black people, brown immigrants, gays and trans people.” Jolly called it “dangerous” and suggested Republicans want to take America back 50 years.
“Ron DeSantis is waging a full-scale war against the black past and only the black past, and I think that’s an important issue…DeSantis is hurting students who aren’t black…It’s illegal to make white people feel uncomfortable in Florida.”

Ron DeSantis announced higher education reforms targeting diversity and equity programs
Earlier this week, Florida’s governor launched a series of reforms targeting the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion in higher education. The move threatens to directly claw back the paths progressives have forged with critical race theory and other programs launched under the guise of “equity.”

“We are going to eliminate all DEIs and [critical race theory] Florida state bureaucracy — no funding, and it’s going to wither on the vine,” DeSantis said. “It’s very important because it really acts as an ideological filter, a political filter that people want to see real educators and they get rid of some of the political window dressing. want.”
Once enacted, state funding would cease from the Department of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at state universities. State-funded universities will not be allowed to make diversity statements during the recruitment process.
Taking higher education reform a step further, DeSantis also proposed requiring new core classes that are “grounded in real history.” [and] The philosophy that shaped Western civilization.”
DeSantis’ Tuesday reforms follow a pledge earlier this month by 28 University of Florida presidents to end all DEI and CRT-related programs that discriminate or “force belief in related concepts such as critical race theory or intersectionality.”
