Microsoft Super Bowl Ad: The Anti-Northam

by Darrick Johnson Read Profile arrow_right_alt

A Super Bowl ad for Microsoft’s Xbox offered a welcome rebuke to the left’s open hostility toward the lives of children with disabilities.

The ad features stories from several children with significant physical disabilities. Thanks to new adaptive controllers from Microsoft, now
they are each able to fully participate in games with their friends.

An extended version of the commercial is here:

In recent days, we have seen a chilling assault on human life. The state of New York just embraced a radical new abortion law, and Virginia considered a similar law. Virginia Governor (for now) Ralph Northam’s chilling words about infanticide came in defense of the failed measure in his state.

Proponents of these radical bills almost always cite severe disabilities as justification for killing babies late in pregnancy, or in Northam’s case, after delivery.

Just yesterday, Ben Sasse brought a bill to the US Senate, to make clear that all lives would be protected after birth. The Democrats objected. They objected to protecting infants, because they love abortion more than anything.

In that context, the ad was such a delight. We got to see how frequently vilified parts of our society, video games, capitalism, and a large corporations, come together to make life better for all of us.

After some grim news cycles, Microsoft offered a refreshing change.

“When everyone plays, we all win.”
