Super Bowl LV was painful. Oh, not the game—that was fine. It was everything else. The halftime and the commercials. So, what was the goal: to get us to choke on “woke?”
The halftime artist known as ‘The Weekend’ was touted as a shining example for black people. The song he didn’t do is one he recorded that talked about how proud he was of his girlfriend’s willingness to degrade herself with him in front of his friends and let them film it.
Dr. King said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” The Super Bowl halftime show was not that ‘day.’ Instead, it featured a man whose lack of character was not just ignored, but celebrated.
There were also many commercials that were tedious and preachy. But the worst one, in my opinion, was the commercial that featured Bruce Springsteen. Here is the transcript of what he wrote and voiced:
“There’s a chapel in Kansas, standing on the exact center of the lower forty-eight. It never closes. All are more than welcome to come meet here, in the middle. It’s not secret. The middle has been a hard place to get to lately. Between red and blue. Between servant and citizen. Between our freedom and our fear. Now, fear has never been the best of who we are. And, as for freedom, it’s not the property of just the fortunate few; it belongs to us all. Whoever you are, wherever you’re from. It’s what connects us, and we need that connection. We need the middle. We just have to remember the very soil we stand on is common ground, so we can get there. We can make it to the mountaintop through the desert, and we will cross this divide. Our light has always found its way through the darkness. And there’s hope on the road up ahead…” Then, over the map of America, appeared these words: “To the ReUnited States of America.”
Here are the facts about Bruce Springsteen: he hates—not dislikes—hates Donald Trump, and has no use for Trump supporters. He has labored vehemently and tirelessly for the Democrat Party. You know, the people who are currently not just dividing, but tearing the nation apart with a bogus impeachment trial.
So, in this commercial, we see Springsteen in this little church. He says it’s always open and everyone is welcome. How detached from reality is that? Bruce’s party, the Democrats, have shut down the churches. They have made exceedingly clear that no one is welcome in the churches—not even in that little chapel.
His party not only shut down churches—they shut them down, until many had to close for good. Imagine how it sounded to the pastor who lost his church to hear Springsteen say, “it is always open and everyone is welcome.”
Springsteen also supports cancel culture. You know, targeting and destroying someone’s reputation and livelihood because they have a different viewpoint. Then he asks us to find that middle ground—that middle ground that Bruce’s party and friends have utterly destroyed. That middle ground where people exchange views in civil discourse. He doesn’t believe in that. He believes in ridicule. He believes in censorship.
He reminds me of the physically abusive husband who goes to marriage counselling, lobbying to look innocent, and lobbying the counsellor, making it look like something is wrong with her for not wanting to come home and try again.
There is a word from God for you in here: He is warning His people not to compromise. He is warning us to look at the lies and the overtures to unify and heal coming from Springsteen, Biden, Harris, Obama, and others. They are not seeking middle ground. What they want is total surrender.
They want you and me to lay down our values and our convictions. They want us to abandon God, and they want us all to turn against Trump. Meanwhile, they are not willing to yield an inch.
We cannot yield! We cannot back down. We must remain the firewall against the moral disintegration of America.
The bottom line is this: This commercial and the Democrats want us to look evil for serving God.
Joshua had the perfect answer: “And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Amen.
