    A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots!

    If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but 
not for
    entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might 
live in a
    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or 
to
    take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might 
live
    in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    Ifyou MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a 
check,
    buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not 
to
    vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that 
was
    founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from 
owning gun magazines
    that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty 
F-16 fighter jets to
    the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a 
nation that was
    founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but 
not one 24-ounce
    soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make 
you fat — you
    might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is 
run by
    idiots.

    If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who
    is confined to a 
wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the
    airport, but a woman 
in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having
    her neck and head 
searched — you might live in a nation that was
    founded by geniuses but 
is run by idiots.

    If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions 
of dollars
    of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a 
nation that
    was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his 
teacher
    is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class 
in grade
    school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation 
that was
    founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more 
government regulation and
    intrusion, while not working is rewarded with 
Food Stamps, WIC checks,
    Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free 
cell phones — you might
    live in a nation that was founded by geniuses 
but is run by idiots.

    If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to 
provide
    incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment
    
checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was
    
diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation
    
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest 
big-screen TV,
    while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a 
wall-sized do-it-all
    plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government 
forgives his debt
    when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a
nation that was
    founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself 
makes you more “safe”
    according to the government — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with
    dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by
    geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your government ‘cracks down’ on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly
    supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a
    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for ‘the safety
    of its citizens’ and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country —
    you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by
    idiots.

    What a country!

    Once we concede our common language, we have no cohesion as a country or a society. ENGLISH is our common language!! (or at least it used to be)

      And a defensible border. That defines our physical boundaries of OUR republic as well.

      It’s all being destroyed.

      • GFWSR

      Does America have an official language? My country has two so I’m having trouble understand this issue.

      • cyclemama33

        We are not just discussing 2 … we have many languages in our country, but they should all learn English.

      • BananaBot

        Who is to say those singing in the commercial haven’t learned English? Plenty of my fellow Canadians are bilingual or more. I’ve never had an issue with someone due to a language barrier. All this hate looks like fear to me and I can’t comprehend the ignorance being spewed.

    • rick

      INTOLERANT LIBERALS????
      “People who find this offensive have been called all kinds of names from intolerant liberals!”
      After decades of demanding, and receiving under the Constitution, “tolerance and co-existence” the liberals now strive to utterly destroy Traditional American Values every way possible! Traditional Conservative Americans are the only ones protecting their rights under our Constitution!

      • daves

        Huh? How have us liberals received tolerance and co-existence under the constitution?

  • logicthinker

    The writer implies speaking a foreign language indicates one is an illegal alien. I speak two languages other than English. I guess I must not speak a foreign language in public anymore. This is becoming psychotic.

    • Karl Bullock

      Not the point!! It does NOT indicate someone is an illegal alien (a misnomer if I ever heard one – people here illegally are NOT immigrants!!), but it does indicate someone who has come here and decided to be a permanent visitor by not learning the native language. If you want to be an American, then WELCOME! Learn the language!!

      • Jason H Kendall

        native language would be dutch really — or german — or many of the other languages that were spoken by the original settlers –

      • Karl Bullock

        I agree – it could have been. But that choice was made in the 1700’s. English!

  • charlie

    screwcoke they are a lousy company anyway. who needs them

    • Bandit

      The only thing I use cocoa cola for is cleaning parts it is a great parts cleaner.

  • PLasley43

    I, for one, was offended by the ad. Failure to melt into the pot by learning and embracing the english language promotes the balkanization of this country.

    • Karl Bullock

      EXACTLY!!!!!!!

  • wclardy

    I must be dense, because I kind of liked it. “America the Beautiful” sounds uplifting in any language, and I don’t see anything wrong in sharing those thoughts with folks around the world.

    • Bandit

      Should this be a country where you have to learn how many languages just to talk to another person? We need one common language.

      • wclardy

        You would be hard-pressed to find a stronger advocate for both a unified language and a unified culture than me, but my inner propagandist still likes the idea of advertising far and wide, in all languages, just what it is that makes America beautiful.
        For what it’s worth, I’m more irritated by the fact that the folks producing the commercial never took it past the first verse. I find the second verse to be at least as meaningful…

  • randykirk

    I couldn’t be any more conservative if I tried. There was -0- wrong with the idea of celebrating our unique character as the home of immigrants by singing the SSB in many languages. To those who don’t get it, get a life.

    • Mark Kuykendall

      Have to agree with you.

    • DOOM161

      so you’ve tried and failed to be more conservative than Obama? sounds like a personal issue.

    • doriweb

      America the Beautiful is NOT the Star-Spangled Banner. Had the SSB been sung in many languages, it would have been REALLY offensive, since it is the National Anthem. America the Beautiful maybe should have been the national anthem, but it is not. Still, I think everything on the Super Bowl show should have been in English. I guess I’m more conservative than you, without trying!

  • Jason H Kendall

    this is the dumbest thing I have ever read in my life — period –

    • Bravo Two Six

      Just a shade worse than your reply to Bamissfa.

  • sad conservative

    I used to buy coke and coke products, not anymore. Fukc coke. Dear coke send your $hit to some other country if you don’t mind! You can go to!

  • bamissfa

    something else that offends me….while watching the Hallmark family channel, commercials for their cards of course, then they had a commercial in spanish. That irritates me enough to make me stop watching hallmark and stop buying their cards.

    We will never be a cohesive society without a common language. We must push our reps to promote a law that English is required for immigrants they should be able to speak, read and write it before coming here. We are spending a fortune in our public schools to have bilingual classes. That’s on top of the already high tax burden on US citizens’ backs as we are paying for childrne of illegal aliens to attend US schools…this should not be…if we are then that amount per illegal child should be deducted from any funds we give to those countries, prime one Mexico.

    • Bandit

      I have to agree on that, how can people get along if you can’t understand what the other person is saying. We need a common language and that should be English, after all many ham operators use English the world over.

    • Deborah G

      You think like I do. My plan was for every illegal we have to keep they should get 1.4 Million dollars[ The actual cost to the taxpey for their care, noin payment of taxes and 18 years of child services] deducted from their foreign aid. My guess the borders would be shut down fast from the Mexican side/

  • Terri Sedlak Hanslik

    The American soldier did not die in foreign land so that the National Anthem could be sung in multiple languages! I will no longer support Coca Cola.

    • Jason H Kendall

      No the American soldier died in a foreign land so the American War Machine could sell coca-cola to the U.S. military in Iraq for $45 — it was for either a case or a six-pack, depending on who’s talking. Or how about the deep well water coca cola is pumping out on a daily basis and not paying for their bottled war — But yes be offended by a song sung in a different language — noodle head

      • jondarmes

        Well, which was it troll, $45 a case or $45 a 6 pack?

      • rm

        you are full of crap. I NEVER paid that much for a soda. you’re not only an idiot, you are a fool.

      • LROWER

        they were not singing the National anthem.

  • bamissfa

    look around the world multiculturalism does not work. it is divisive. it has ruined europe and it is ruining the USA

  • PBHayes

    Pretending as liberals do that Muslims and Jews get along if they come to America is what I find offensive. Ask any Muslim in America what they think of Jews and America’s support for Israel and you’ll have to walk away as the disgusting diatribe that comes is too much for my most peoples ears.

  • nancy miller

    I think I’ll buy stock in Pepsi

    • Amy

      No – they aren’t any better. They wouldn’t allow “God Bless America” with a picture of the flag on their “patriotic” cans a couple of years back. They are just as liberal as Coke, but in a different way.

    • Bandit

      I think I am going to be selling my stock in cocoa cola.

      • Deborah G

        I just did and will be buying Pepsi in a few minutes

    • Deborah G

      I just sold every share of Coke in my online account this minute and will replace the shares with Pepsi. Its a better stock anyway.

    • Washington22

      No, Pepsi supports changing the 2nd amendent……….

  • James Maxwell

    Coke Cola is multi national company that sells it product all over the world, but this is the United
    States of America and to sing “America the Beautiful” in multiple languages is wrong on many
    different levels. First if you are in American and trying to become a citizens legally one of the
    requirement is that you learn to read, write and SPEAK English. Second to use this song in
    multiple languages appears to encourage the Criminal Illegal Aliens to continue to invade
    The United States. If you want to spend your money promoting your product you should be
    careful about how you do, so that you will not offend your prime market especially during the
    Super Bowl in the United States of America. I will pay attention to how where they spend
    their money in political donation and what their political desires are. It could effect sales
    here at home and overseas as well.

    • Amy

      Well said James, I agree completely.

    • osteomed

      I, for one James, will NEVER BUY ANOTHER COCA-COLA PRODUCT, FOR AS LONG AS I LIVE!!

      • Bravo Two Six

        Me, too, and, me either!

      • James Maxwell

        It will be very interesting to see how that commercial will effect their sale in
        the United States. Many could be swayed to drink Pepsi, (Not me I tried that
        before) but remember what it did to Michel Jackson, made his dance funny,
        catch on fire and like little boys. But when you try to mix it with whiskey or
        in any other mixed drink it leaves a funny after taste that ruins the taste of
        your mixed drink. Not to mention their ultra left wing politics and who they
        support also.

  • randykirk

    I walked the precincts for Goldwater, and appeared on Geraldo’s daytime show on a panel promoting bisexuality as the only one on the panel who was against it. I’ll put my conservative bone fides up against you or anyone.

        I was being cheeky-from the old Saturday Night Live days with Belushi. I actually don’t drink any soft drinks.

  • USARetired

    English should be enforced as the official language of America! I am multi lingual and agree with this!

    • Jason H Kendall

      and how would you enforce this? would you cut out the tongues of those who did not speak it?

      • RangerRick

        First, we would start by removing people like you who are only tolerant of those that agree with you. Secondly, everything is in English, ATMs menus, signs, telephone options when I have to figure out why one of your beloved non-Americans steals my identity. If you don’t like it, go move to the Hague where this kind of ‘lets not offend anyone and allow anything and everything’ mentality is embraced, it’s not needed or wanted in ‘Murica the Beautiful.

      • Bravo Two Six

        What jerk! You really don’t get it”, do you?

      • RangerRick

        No, Bravo, you’re the one who doesn’t get it. If I wanted diversity and multiculturalism shoved down my throat I’d move to the UK and some other socialized country in the EU where I’d be told what to feel, what to think, and when I can exercise my limited rights. We left England and the monarchs behind to start a new country where that BS didn’t fly. Unfortunately if appears to have only a ~450-500 year shelf life as we’re losing our backbone and becoming subservient to the powers that be and what they tell us. If you don’t like it go back to MSNBC and be spoon feed like the rest of the sheep. Darwin supports PC compliance so good riddance.

      • osteomed

        PC is well on its way of destroying the great country, USA!!

      • Jason H Kendall

        are not ATMs in english? signs? telephone options — whatever that means? is Murica a word? is that new English?

      • bdaniel230

        No just treat everyone like crap that doesn’t speak the language, like in France.

      • jondarmes

        Hi Troll.

  • hankrbradley

    As a Tea Party conservative I don’t find this ad to be offensive. The words have the same meaning no matter what language they are sung in! Making note of the diversity in this country is not all bad, diversity is actually a good thing, what if all women looked like Pelosi?

    • Jason H Kendall

      hey look at that a tea party guy that can think for once and is not offended by a COMMERCIAL — good stuff

      • KC135TopBoom

        I doubt very much kankrbradley is a member of the Tea party.
        Congress, make English the official language of the United States. I am tired of pressing “1” for English!!!!!

      • rm

        I very much believe you are correct.

      • Jason H Kendall

        if English was made the official language — why do you think that pressing 1 for english would go away?

    • d4texas

      It’s about “assimulating” into the culture of the country you live in to show respect. “America the Beautiful” and the “Pledge of Allegiance” should only be spoken in English to show respect!

    • Washington22

      I don’t agree with you assessment, hank. I, too, am Tea Party. It’s not just the words, it’s the overall theme, the agenda, the shoving it in our face, the disrespect of the American people. It’s part of the attempt to CHANGE who we are……….

  • SammysDad

    As I watched this ad, many people spontaneously in the room as well as I asked, “Why are they singing it in foreign languages?” It was as if these people were offended, and they truly were. Coke has made a blunder. I’m sure they meant it to be a warm and fuzzy ad, but are they going to be surprised by the backlash. On another note, I always used to drink Diet Coke because it tasted better than Diet Pepsi. Am I wrong or has Coke done something to Diet Coke and it has no tastes anymore? I started drinking Pepsi occasionally now and the taste is better. I did this before the ad. Now Coke is out, for sure!

  • Robert

    As a veteran I too was offended by the commercial. Bad move by coke.

    • Deborah G

      You HAVE to CALL COKE and voice your issue. Tell them Pepsi will profit from thier “Blunder” rather their unpatriotism.

      • rm

        Pepsi’s no better. No coincidence that in 2008 they changed their logo to suspiciously resemble Obama’s campaign logo.

      • Washington22

        Deb, Pepsi is no better………don’t buy either and YES, call them and voice your opinion.

        I just found a phone # for Coke…………..800-438-2653 I just talked to a very nice man who took my complaint and was cordial. Yes, they have been receiving phone calls complaining about the Super Bowl ad. He even had a canned comment telling me that it was meant to do this and that, you know, the diversity argument……..I told him that’s NOT what we heard, that’s NOT what we walked away with. I told him to think Duck Dynasty………….

  • rog363

    As an ex-military man I was asked to always try and learn to converse in the language, and abide by the customs of the country I was serving in at the time, therefore appeasing the populace, I was told I was a guest of the country I was in. Why is it now, in America, that people coming here to either live legally or illegally or to just visit, are trying to change the language we have been born to, into the language that they speak? Are our politicians that desperate for votes that they are bending over backwards to appease those that are other then American? Coke is right in there with them it seems, anything to make a buck, including honoring those that are trying their hardest to turn us into something we aren’t and were never meant to be.

    • l penn

      It was prob a Muslim country you were in and ole barry the LIAR in chief muslim wouldn’t want you to offend them in any way!! Subway also supports barry n michelle’s sham orgainization to give barry’s administration promotion! No more Coke or Subway for me or any Real Americans!

      • rog363

        Back when I was in the military son, we were in Nam and besides being told to try and communicate in the language of the country we were deployed in, we knew that common sense and common courtesy was always the way to go when dealing with anyone, be they friend or foe. This was something we, as soldiers, didn’t really have to be told, we knew all about common courtesy and common sense, something this present administration and those that voted for them are surely lacking. I believe one of the worst things this country ever did was abolish the draft, even though I enlisted. Those who were subject to the draft were taught much more then just how to fight and kill, they were taught how to survive and to respect authority and to follow orders. This is something this present administration seems to not have and something those that voted for them seem to also lack, by not having common sense people tend to go with those that promise them the most, giving no thought as to how these politicians are going to keep the promises that they made when they campaigned to get those votes.

    The Official English movement has been out of action since the 1990’s – unfortunately. Over 70 nations have declared English their official language, but not us. The problem derives from the NEA and its affiliates who want to maintain a segregated society. Rather than a “melting pot” where as everyone is assimilated in to American culture and society, they advocate a “salad bowl” American where everyone maintains their individual cultures and identity. Why? Two reasons, if America returns to a unified society, they can’t play one group against another. Second, the English as a Second Language program is a $20 billion a year industry for educators. The really sad part is that Congress is so gutless that they will not even try to unify the country by declaring English as our official language.

    This is exactly how the Italian Communist, Antonin Grahmshi, helped sink many of what the vast majority of Americans knew was MORALLY WRONG. By sinking all those thought and embedding them into the American cultural fabric!

    Some learned congressperson should issue a bill mandating all lawmakers MUST be able to speak at least 3 different languages before serving in congress. This would be retroactive for current members, giving them 6 months to comply. The arguments from congress in opposition to this would be sufficient enough to keep English as the mandated language of the US forever.

    • Rhonda Renee Sessions

      If you’re “tired of lying liberals” as your handle states, perhaps you ought to check out Coca-Cola’s standing in the PC world… I think your eyes will be opened. This commercial is part of the media propaganda that big corporations (corporatists) are crafting with the statists.

      • Tired of lying liberals

        All transnationals (Tranzis) are the same. Their god is the dollar.

        That said, I enjoyed the song. I recognized almost all of the languages and understood a couple.

        A joke:
        What do you call a person who speaks three languages?
        Trilingual
        What do you call a person who speaks two languages?
        Bilingual
        What is a person who speaks only one language?
        An American.

        That is a sad truth.
        Here’s a FWIW, the two largest English speaking nations are China and India.

        You all go on being proud of your ignorance and intolerance. I have nothing to prove to you and I am tired of reading your drivel. Protest stuff worth protesting. How about open borders? How about ObamaCare? How about endless wars for corporatism? How about fracking which is poisoning our drinking water? How about slavery that still goes on here in the US? (Pimps are slavers and prostitutes are slaves.Many are children under 17!) But screaming about a multilingual song in a Coke ad? FFS grow up!

  • Crowes1

    This is absolutely getting ridiculous and those swearing off Coke are nuts.

    Why are you so fast to blame Coke for the mess we have in our Country?

    Is it Coke’s fault that our Country doesn’t have everyone speaking one Language?
    Is it Coke’s fault that the State of Massachusetts prints all it forms in 21 different languages/

    If your going to spend FOUR MILLION DOLLARS on One ADVERTISEMENT wouldn’t you want to make it the most inclusive message for your Dollar?

    I guess most of you haven’t noticed the glass bottles of Coke in the stores that are bottled in Mexico either.

    Coke is not the party forcing anything on us here. It’s our Government. Coke is only trying to get their message out to as many people as possible.

    My only Pet Peeve with Coca Cola was New Coke and that has been resolved!!

    • kktex12

      If the coke bottled in Mexico is made with real cane sugar it tastes like the coke we used to get back in the 50s and 60s before they adulterated it with high fructose corn syrup. I would have bought this coke before the coke bottled in the US made with corn syrup. Quality before quantity and cheapness.

      • Tired of lying liberals

        Mexican Coke is made with real sugar. That’s why they sell it in the Kosher section for Jewish holidays like Passover. We get it here in Texas all the time. It is just like what we got back in the 50’s and 60’s.

      • Washington22

        that’s it ? That’s why you won’t buy coke now ?

      • Rhonda Renee Sessions

        And that is EXACTLY why it is brought in from Mexico, and carried in the international food aisle, for the Latinos (whether or not they are legal, or not). It is the original formula, not the high fructose corn syrup version that is responsible for our “sudden” obesity problems.

      I have to disagree with you.! Sorry, but the government did NOT force Coke to put out an ad in all these FOREIGN languages. They are just contributing & adding fuel to the fire! Anyone who can’t understand an ad in English should NOT be living in the United States of AMERICA! Screw all this Multicultural bull$**t!!!! It’s NOT the United States of China, Korea, Mexico, India or ANY other foreign country. This is AMERICA & we need to all work to KEEP it that way & be PROUD of it! PERIOD!!!!!

  • agbjr

    The concept was good however the end-product was lousy! What could have been an excellent presentation of the make-up of America came off as a half-baked left-leaning political statement. The commercial should have segued from the many individual foreign languages of the individual immigrants into all of them standing together and singing together … in English … each holding a small US Flag … superimposed over this scene the Latin words of our National Motto: E PLURIBUS UNUM. (From many, one).

    Coca Cola should fire their advertising agency.

  • Adhemarde

    If this were utopia and the immigrants, legal and illegal, coming here all wanted to be good Americans and were singing “America The Beautiful” for that reason, this commercial might be relevant. However, this is not what is happening. Though there are still those kind of immigrants, they have extreme difficulty getting visas because of chain immigration and other aspects of the law that promote mostly third world immigrants, not to mention the millions that enter and stay illegally, including those in Obama’s family. They do not want to be Americans, and they most certainly are not singing “America The Beautiful”. I don’t think that is on La Raza’s Top Ten list, nor is it heard in many mosques. “Strength through diversity” is idiotic – show me historically how diversity has strengthened nations, and I will show you wars, ethnic cleansing, pogroms, genocide, and endless conflict. That is another fantasy created by the Left.

      You should familiarize yourself a little more with the linguistic history of your country.
      Or maybe you’ve forgotten that the United States used to have some of the most widely read German- and Polish-language newspapers, with subscribers who were working hard to make sure their children spoke fluent English — and were almost always incredibly proud to master the language themselves?

    The liberals in my family were offended as well as myself and my brother.

    I thought is was just another way they are trying to persuade America to allow amnesty for illegals, and prepare us for our downfall and the introduction of the One World Government of which we, Canada and Mexico will become zone 1 as defined by the Council of Rome, and the Bilderberg’s.

    This Amnesty for Illegals is just the beginning of joining us and them and doing away with our constitution and our Republic.

    Once again, posting here is great for your stress level. However, the people that really need to hear our displeasure are the big wigs at coke. Do not buy the product…. But, tell them why! Also, get to your reps in Congress and demand that the first change in handling any immigrants is they must learn our language, because it will be the only recognized language in this nation.

  • patriotds1

    At one time everyone came to America to become Americans, learn and speak English

    No one here who supports this ad hasn’t said that immigrants shouldn’t learn our language, that is a no brainer, so is securing our borders, but without diversity we would all be Obama’s, we would all think like Obama, we would all believe what he believes, we would all look like Obama. Diversity is not all bad.

    • axmickl

      Nobody here has said it is all bad. We all know the inscription on the statue of Liberty and I doubt many here would be here if their ancestors hadn’t read that inscription. We just want those who choose to come here to act as though they are happy to be here by learning the language of the land.

  • montelw

    That’s one of the biggest problems I have with immigration, they want us to pay them respect with learning their language. That to me is a signal that they should of stayed where they were. We speak English as our nations language even though it has not been recognized by making it officially our national language. We shouldn’t be asked to let someone from a different country push us to learn their’s Don’t speak English, then learn to, if not go back to your home country.

    The marketing companies are staffed by hard-core leftists. You’ll see their influence on every commercial forced upon you. Watch for the sex, color, dress, and placement of the actors in the spots. NOTHING is by accident.

    I’ve been shooting for broadcast television for over 30 years-a lot of time on commercial sets. I know how liberals work. They use every media outlet to further their agenda. Have you noticed the disappearing white male in marketing over the years since obama’s been in office?

    When commercial’s feature a white male, more after than not he’s stupid, under direction of a woman or black male, and is sub servant to all of the other actors in the spot. My kids point out the “stupid white guy” in commercials now. Pay attention, You’ll witness this. Nothing is an accident.

    My Father legally immigrated from Greece. My Mother’s parents legally immigrated from Denmark and Sweden. I was INSULTED by Coca-Cola singing our National Anthem in ANY FOREIGN language! When my parents legally immigrated to the USA, they LEARNED ENGLISH! My Father served in 9
    years in WWII and Korea and when he spoke of the United States of America and his ancestory he said, “I have chosen to come to America and I am an American Greek… NOT a Greek American!” He was FROM Greece and chose to become an American!

      Why the double identity of “American – Greek ” ? Either you`re an “American” or you aren’t …

      • ColoradoKid1

        If I follow that logic, the ONLY TRUE AMERICANS are the Indians who were here LOOOOONG before any of OUR ancestors who, by the way came to save them and get away from their governments. Further, we should have let the Indians NAME this land and THAT is who we should call ourselves. But, in the late 1800’s, when my Father came here that was the custom, right or wrong. Also, he was a very proud American, fighting FOR this Country on three seperate Continents.

In reality, we killed the Natives and said “They were Savages” and we need to TEACH them the RIGHT ways of civilized people. It’s a lose, lose discussion… WE Killed Them and Stole their Land and Life… PERIOD!

      • reasoning with facts

        The actual text from Theodore Roosevelt’s letter is below:

        “We should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birth-place or origin.

        “But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American and nothing but an American. If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn’t doing his part as an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. . . We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding-house; and we have room for but one soul loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people.”

        Could President TR have made himself any more clear that America is for Americans, not foreigners. Some other famous Teddy Roosevelt quotes on immigration include the following:

        “Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or to leave the country… English should be the only language taught or used in the public schools.” Roosevelt gave this statement to the Kansas City Star in 1918.

        “We can have no “50-50″ allegiance in this country. Either a man is an American and nothing else, or he is not an American at all.”

        “We cannot afford to continue to use hundreds of thousands of immigrants merely as industrial assets while they remain social outcasts and menaces any more than fifty years ago we could afford to keep the black man merely as an industrial asset and not as a human being. We cannot afford to build a big industrial plant and herd men and women about it without care for their welfare. We cannot afford to permit squalid overcrowding or the kind of living system which makes impossible the decencies and necessities of life.

        We cannot afford the low wage rates and the merely seasonal industries which mean the sacrifice of both individual and family life and morals to the industrial machinery. We cannot afford to leave American mines, munitions plants, and general resources in the hands of alien workmen, alien to America and even likely to be made hostile to America by machinations such as have recently been provided in the case of the two foreign embassies in Washington. We cannot afford to run the risk of having in time of war men working on our railways or working in our munition plants who would in the name of duty to their own foreign countries bring destruction to us. Recent events have shown us that incitements to sabotage and strikes are in the view of at least two of the great foreign powers of Europe within their definition of neutral practices. What would be done to us in the name of war if these things are done to us in the name of neutrality?”

        In his book, On America, TR captures the sentiments of all patriotic Americans.

        “The foreign-born population of this country must be an Americanized population – no other kind can fight the battles of America either in war or peace.

        “It must talk the language of its native-born fellow-citizens, it must possess American citizenship and American ideals. It must stand firm by its oath of allegiance in word and deed and must show that in very fact it has renounced allegiance to every prince, potentate, or foreign government.

        “It must be maintained on an American standard of living so as to prevent labor disturbances in important plants and at critical times. None of these objects can be secured as long as we have immigrant colonies, ghettos, and immigrant sections, and above all they cannot be assured so long as we consider the immigrant only as an industrial asset.

        “The immigrant must not be allowed to drift or to be put at the mercy of the exploiter. Our object is not to imitate one of the older racial types, but to maintain a new American type and then to secure loyalty to this type. We cannot secure such loyalty unless we make this a country where men shall feel that they have justice and also where they shall feel that they are required to perform the duties imposed upon them.

        “The policy of “Let alone” which we have hitherto pursued is thoroughly vicious from two stand-points. By this policy we have permitted the immigrants, and too often the native-born laborers as well, to suffer injustice. Moreover, by this policy we have failed to impress upon the immigrant and upon the native-born as well that they are expected to do justice as well as to receive justice… that they are expected to be heartily and actively and single-mindedly loyal to the flag no less than to benefit by living under it. “

        As a final quote for this book, to set the stage for an America first and Americans first immigration plan, let’s examine this final quote in this book from Theodore Roosevelt:

        *****“The men who do not become Americans and nothing else are hyphenated Americans; and there ought to be no room for them in this country. The man who calls himself an American citizen and who yet shows by his actions that he is primarily the citizen of a foreign land, plays a thoroughly mischievous part in the life of our body politic. He has no place here; and the sooner he returns to the land to which he feels his real heart-allegiance, the better it will be for every good American. There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else….” We would do well to include as many of Roosevelt’s principles in any plan adopted as any plan should be as Roosevelt would have it: “For Americans First.”******

        This Chapter sets the stage for the rest of this book and how it is more than feasible to have an immigration plan that benefits Americans more than foreign nationals.

        Just as Theodore Roosevelt was a regular and good American, his thoughts and words, not the thoughts and words of faux Americans such as Chuck Schumer and the gang of eight tyrants, should be the guiding principles for how we fashion our future comprehensible and sane immigration policies.

        Roosevelt did not complain about the laws, he enforced the laws. If our current administration and the administrations before and after Reagan enforced the laws already on the books, perhaps a 1200 page odyssey bill would not be what the progressive socialists in Congress think we now need.

        America in the early twentieth century was not plagued as badly as today by crooked politicians whose selfishness was unabated by a countervailing force. President Theodore Roosevelt was a true American and he was the countervailing force against the socialist progressive activists in Europe and in the US.

        Moreover, the American people were better schooled on history in Roosevelt’s time and they understood its consequences on their lives. They also understood the meaning of tyranny. Therefore, the notion of giving people who had broken US laws a free pass and free lodging and free food was an idea Roosevelt would never believe could happen in his America.

      • ColoradoKid1

        Very well stated and accepted. But, even TR knew we stole this Country from the Natives who had lived here for centuries… We called them ‘Savages’ and we saved them!

        I was not intending to give that impression. I did not mention any other country because I really don’t care what or how any other country does anything. I focus on the USA. Regarding WHATthe remaining Native Americans GET… it is a pittance compared to what was stolen from them. Also, there are Tribes that were COMPLETELY annihilated from the Earth, what do they get? And NO, I am not in favor of ANY FORM of Reparation(s). But it does remind me of the aged discussion between a Farmer and a Wealthy Business man: (Readers Digest Version) – The Wealthy Business (WBM) man goes to a Farm and asks the Farmer, “How much for your Farm, I want it?” The Farmer replies, “It’s not for sale.” Discussion continues… argument ensues. The WBM asks the Farmer, “Where did you get this land?” Farmes says, “From my Father who got it from his Father, who got it from his Father, who got it from his Father, who got it from his Father… who fought for it.” The WBM says, “I’ll fight you for it!”

      • reasoning with facts

        And where would you be today if the US hadn`t “”Stolen”” the Indians land ? Certainly not in Colorado , as per your thought process it wouldn`t exist .. Why did your ancestors come to America in the first place ; being that the USA was such a destructive and ill gotten entity?

      • ColoradoKid1

        Well the facts, pure and simple… Mom wouldn’t have met Dad and I would not be here/alive. Again the facts… No immigrant cared about the slaughter of the American Indian. According to my Father, he didn’t even know the history of America, simply knew it was a FREE country with opportunity(ies). And finally, my Father DID fight to keep this Country FREE!

        Why do people continue to muddle this point. The past is past. This is America.
        Despite our history, we are the United States of America. Nothing is changing that except the decay from within. I think it absurd when people use terms like African American, Italian American, Greek American etc….. We are Americans. I am of Scottish descent but I don’t walk around saying I am a Scottish American. I do say in conversation that I am of Scottish descent. There is nothing wrong about being proud of ones ancestry but that is what it is…ancestry. Until we see ourselves as Americans…period…. there will continue to be the dilution of this great country’s values.

    • Barbaracvm

      All four of my grandparents came to the US in 190 and 1910. My grandfathers knew English and my grandmothers and to learn English. By 1940 they were naturalized citizens and proud of it. All of the sons fought in WWII or Korea.

    Not withstanding the fact that coke and pepsi aren’t good for people with all the sugar or artificial sweeteners and caramel coloring ; this company really exhibited bad judgment with this one.

  • craigmayberry

    What is offensive is pandering to Islam, Sharia and singing the song in Arabic. Islam is anti American, anti freedom, anti democratic and anti women, Liberals love Islam because they are as well.

  • ConnieJ

    Too bad that Coke decided to show immigrants (legal or illegal) who choose to cling to the language of the countries that they have deserted, instead of singing a truly American song in English. That would have much more inspiring.

        No, you’re wrong. Presented that way the song teaches, out of many, remain many. Dress, speak, and act any way you want, don’t worry about assimilating to the culture. This is how America stays divided, and easier to destroy.

      • Liberty1st

        Well said Omer! Why don’t people see that the harm to America via the dilution of our language will only help destroy our country????

    Private business has been recruited by Obama to sell his Marxist propaganda. This is only the beginning and, if you’ve watched the news, you’ll see he’s not been shy about promoting this idea to Hollywood. PROPAGANDA is a method whereby governments convince people to believe things that life experiences would not otherwise indicate they should believe. PROPAGANDA is the attempted control of individuals by the government under which they live.So people, ‘Lean Forward’ will eventually just be, bend over.

    I’m not in advertising, but I would guess that its first rule parallels the one in medicine (from Hippocrates): first, do not harm; or, in the case of advertising, first, do not alienate or drive away any existing customers.

    The Coca-Cola Company may very well have succeeded in doing just that with what was for many a truly offensive Super-Bowl advertisement. Of course, I cannot predict whether there will be an offsetting gain by way of increasing sales among foreigners, legal and illegal, now in the United States, but I tend to doubt it.

  • Carmelo Junior

    What’s next? Will Oblama, Holduh, and Coke set up Coke-stands on the border to welcome illegals? Coke will quench their thirst, and Obama, Holduh, and the Black Panthers will be there to register them to vote (democrat, of course). We’re doomed. Clueless liberals have taken over.

    By the way, I heard an hour-long discussion about this on the radio this morning – appears to me that the entire younger generation has been brainwashed by liberals who are clueless about everything, and refuse to acknowledge right/wrong, and brainless enough to not understand consequences of anything they do.
    By the way, the older generation has done some pretty stupid things too – have you ever seen images of the countries that have lost to us in the World Wars? The USA naively gave them all kinds of money to rebuild after we kicked their a**es, and now look at their vibrant cities, look at their market share of their products (from cars to electonics to everything!) here. Meanwhile, our cities look like their cities looked after we bombed them!
    Pathetic, disappointing, and especially sad that the liberals are going to continue making things worse and worse, because they have no brains.

  • Carmelo Junior

    If the Founding fathers wanted English to be the “official” language of the new republic they would have stated that in writing.

      Do you know that the English language, in a vote by early congress, won by only one vote over the German language?

      • The Bobster

        Haha! You revisionists are a joke.

    • Laddyboy

      They did state English is the language of America. English is the language which was used for the Constitution of these United States is written in. If you want to keep and use your “home” language in your home, I have no problem. However, This IS America. We speak English while in any public setting. Enough Said. Period!

      • Carmelo Junior

        The Founding Fathers were also misongynists not allowing women to have a say in their meetings.

      • Liberty1st

        Stay on point and stop digging up old history. ALL counties have progressed and America has grown leaps and bounds. That does not preclude the need for one language and your ridiculous continuation to divert the conversation. Anyone not wanting to learn our language has the choice to leave this great country. Why do immigrants want to come here??? If it is only to make a buck and then tear our coulter apart, I suggest they leave NOW.

      • Liberty1st

        That was culture not coulter. sorry.

    • Barbaracvm

      Since they all spoke English maybe they thought it was natural for all coming to the new founded country United States. People who came from non English speaking countries were learning English.
      They probably did not imagine that one day the politically correct would try to destroy the country from with in.

    • Liberty1st

      So what language was the Constitution written in??? You sir are the problem. Chaos is not the way for any country to communicate. People CHOOSE to come to this country and should learn it’s language. This is exactly why it costs the tax payers millions of dollars in printing forms in various languages…..because the simple aspect of learning this country’s language is not enforced. If you moved to France, I am quite sure you would learn French and so on. If the US tries to be politically correct eventually ruining the American Culture….. it is because of people like you! Many families have their culture and language within their own home and communities but on the broad spectrum…there should be one language… English.

      • Carmelo Junior

        English will always be our common language. A stupid commercial will not make any difference. If you get offended by this commercial you are just a retrograde nazi.

You are just surprised that so many Americans on this post don’t agree with your ridiculous analogy.

    It seems to me that Coca-Cola lost a great opportunity here. They could have advanced the same multi-cultural message and yet made a positive statement as to the proper articulation of true Americanism. That is if they had only had foreigners sing the anthem IN THE LANGUAGE OF OUR LAND. Even, or perhaps especially, if their elocution had been riddled with the thick accents of their native countries -like the folk of old who used to swarm the planks at Ellis Isle and proudly spoke what little English they knew: as it was then, so it would have been now, a fitting tribute to their appreciation for their new-found nation.
    Sadly, instead of highlighting the fact that the United States was a “melting pot,” where the arriving nationals were obliged to meld with the dominant culture, they celebrated a message of separation of un-blendable parts, who, unless they find a common interest in our historic character and traditions, will be forever doomed to become co-heirs of a “house” endlessly “divided”!

    You are correct: I too was offended by that propaganda based commercial. How on earth would the NFL allow such trash to air is beyond me? $$$$ Here is a copy of the e-mail I sent coke earlier today: As a devoted drinker of Coca Cola I was totally appalled by your multi-language, multi-cultural Super Bowl commercial. You are not aware of the fact that I had been a very dedicated drinker of your products for over 50 years. That commercial did it for me!!! I am DONE buying any future Coke products. I guess that commercial achieved its goal for the most part. The two main goals about any advertising campaign are: 1. To have people saying good things about your company/product or 2. Have them saying bad things about your company/product. Talking about you is what you want right?
    Well in my case it is the later and you have now lost of me as a consumer and customer. My loss to you, I guess does not matter it is just collateral damage (about three cases a week). I sincerely hope the assault you perpetrated upon my native language (ENGLISH) and the language of my nation which is ENGLISH and the American culture that all immigrants are supposed to assimilate into is well received by your pandering commercial. I am done with ever buying or drinking your products again!!! Not that it matters to you!!!! Perhaps the next muslim jihad attack will be on your facilities in Atlanta and not in Boston or New York. You owe all Americans an apology for your crass pandering, politically correct, nonsense of a commercial.

    • Jason H Kendall

      you mean the NFL that pays zero federal taxes yet is worth about $9 billion — that is who you are looking at — if anyone had any real chops in this group- you would be much more upset at the NFL for not paying taxes — but then what would you do? you couldn’t watch a punch of grown men in tights play catch

      • Bo_Kassa

        I didn’t know that the NFL pays zero in taxes. I do know that the players, coaches,trainers,film crews,drivers of the buses and equipment all do pay taxes. For me: the NFL has ruined the game of football with their political correctness and emasculation of the rules, I could care less if the NFL, folded tomorrow along with Coca Cola.

      • Jason H Kendall

        agreed — In his office at 345 Park Avenue in Manhattan, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell must smile when Texas exempts the Cowboys’ stadium from taxes, or the governor of Minnesota bows low to kiss the feet of the NFL. The National Football League is about two things: producing high-quality sports entertainment, which it does very well, and exploiting taxpayers, which it also does very well. Goodell should know—his pay, about $30 million in 2011, flows from an organization that does not pay corporate taxes.

        That’s right—extremely profitable and one of the most subsidized organizations in American history, the NFL also enjoys tax-exempt status. On paper, it is the Nonprofit Football League.

It really is none of my business what you and yours decide. This is a major reason why conservatives are failing everywhere. We espouse our desire for personal freedom and then try to dictate everyone’s personal life. There is a whole lot of hypocrisy and illogical thinking here. Personally I am a fiscal conservative. As Republicans, if we ever expect to gain any ground in reawakening America to it’s proud past, we need to lower our sights on the social side.

      Cheerios’ Super Bowl Comment Censorship—The PC Empire Strikes Back
      By Nicholas Stix on February 2, 2014 at 11:59pm

      There’s a significant and sinister back story to the Cheerios Superbowl First Quarter ad [YouTube] featuring/ flaunting a biracial family that got an MSNBC staffer fired—allegedly—for gloating via Twitter that “the right wing will hate it.” [Cheerios Brings Back Interracial Family For Its First Ever Super Bowl Ad, by Aaron Taube, Business Insider, January 28, 2014.]

      Ad agency Saatchi& Saatchi (email CEO Kevin Roberts) knew its masterpiece would get mindless praise in the Main Stream Media and from Politically Correct lumpen Leftists. (Thus Business Insider reader Vall announced: “Anti-white is a code word for pro-American.”)

      But S&S took no chances, disengaging the YouTube “Down” vote option and engaging in massive censorship so that over 98 percent of the comments are supportive and criticisms swathed in ambiguous language. [An Interracial Cheerios Super Bowl Ad, Minus YouTube's Hateful Comments, By Joshua Brustein, January 31, 2014].

      I tried to post three comments: they were all blocked. Two appear on my PC and at Google+, but with no votes or comments. When I checked using my son’s PC, nothing showed up. (The software that lets someone see something he has posted, but which has actually been blocked—called “ghosted comments” —has been around for 10 or more years.)

      The surviving commenters’ stupidity was as appalling as their self-congratulatory, anti-white politics. The majority of the 2,872 comments that I found early Sunday morning did not even understand that the family in the commercial was fictional.

      VDARE. com has repeatedly noted that, as John Derbyshire put it, If There Is Hope, It Lies In The Comment Threads. See here, here, here, and here.

      The argument: What if there were newspapers, but nobody read them? Especially with the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge legislation, and the recent GOP House Leadership’s attempt to sneak it past its base, the comment threads are more important, factually and analytically, as the MSM propaganda to which they are appended.

      But the Empire knows this, hates it—and is striking back.

      Here’s what the New York Times’ chief thread censor, Nigerian-American Community Manager Bassey Etim, [pictured right] [Email | Twitter] who supervises 13 (!) enforcers to fabricate the fake consensus you see on NYT comments threads, thinks of normal, patriotic, white Americans—the kind who fight and die in our wars, pay the taxes, do the productive, legal work (and research for me!):

      Most of the newspaper comment sections I see are filled with racism, homophobia and barely literate anti-feminist rants…. The Internet is a big place, and there are a lot of spaces where you can say whatever you please, but nytimes. com is not the rest of the Internet. It’s a news Web site where the news is discussed in ways that don’t make you feel like you need to shower afterward.

    Was not really offended by the song, I do get offended when I call some place on the phone and they ask me if I want the message in spanish. However, I do agree that it was another political correct message put out there. Don’t care where you are from, the unofficial language is and has always been English.

  • Mary Emerson

    I will NEVER drink another coke as long as I live or consume ANYTHING made by coco cola ! Melting pot indeed, LEARN OUR LANGUAGE, and become an Am,erican, not a HYPHONATED one !

    • The Bobster

      Those things will never be Americans. They doesn’t look anything at all like our Founding Fathers.

      We are NOT a proposition nation.

  • Clay Weeks

    Surprised they left GOD in it! Cant have islam and GOD together!

  • Robert J. Roland

    My family as well have purchased their last Coca Cola Product. It’s a shame when an American Company has to pander by singing a traditional American song about America in a way that is disrespectful to Americans, in the name of diversity.

  • The Bobster

    What the hell? I didn’t see any real Americans in the commercial, just the turd world trash that the Chosen have been importing since 1965.

  • Carmelo Junior

    English will always be the “COMMON” language of this diverse nation. A Coke commercial will not make any difference. Stop the paranoia. Hitler was also paranoic and crazy.

    Commercial shows us we are no longer one people working toward a better future.

      if you have to have a commercial tell you that — wow — maybe you twits should turn the tv for a few weeks and pick up a book — you might be able to begin to think for yourselves -

  • jimof ct

    I was not understanding what was being done when that commercial was aired. When it dawned on me that they were celebrating the refusal of immigrants to assimilate as the new norm for the American society I was indeed saddened.
    Stupidity is becoming more and more prevalent in our country as the “progressive ideas replace the traditional values that have made this country the envy of the world.
    Somehow it is becoming considered reasonable to allow and encourage those who came here to escape the failure of their countries inadequate lifestyle and its ability to support them to retain the languages, ideas, and customs and behaviors that they fled from to come to America.
    It has been our history that the people who came here came to become Americans. Why should it be different now? Coke made a mistake! This is the wrong idea. They should have stressed the benefit to all those personalities being assimilated into the American society that is celebrated by the “America the Beautiful” song and- in the language it was written and should be performed.
    Even at international athletic events a national anthem song is performed in the language of the country – as it should be.

  • George Sarant

    No more Coke!

    • Jason H Kendall

      good that stuff kills more people than cigs

    • Barb Johnson

      Exactly how we feel. We’re going to get a SodaStream.

  • d4texas

    Dang – Too bad they bought out Dr Pepper. I stopped drinking Coca-Cola products years ago because of this very Liberal Socialist issue.

    “Real” immigrants come to America because they want freedom from oppresion and government controls. They are enthusiastic about becoming citizens as evidenced by the Naturalization Ceremonies when they speak of how proud they are to finally become American Citizens. They FULLY try to assimulate into the American culture – as did “my” ancestors, as a sixth generation German-American with “actual” work ethics and morals. It touches my heart with their testimonies.

    Now comes the never-ending “illegal” immigrants who refuse to assimulate into the American culture. They break into our country and not only demand they be allowed to retain their own cultures and be protected from even American laws and customs, but also be given special privileges, welfare, food and housing privileges, public education, college tuition, medical care, etc, ALL paid for by the American taxpayers . . . who they openly despise. ENOUGH Already!

    We don’t need anyone here that don’t want to become “real” Americans. They are causing multi-cultural competition and feeding obozo’s culture wars, race wars, gender wars, etc., and everything else in oblamer’s war to divide our country. They need to be jailed or kicked out IMMEDIATELY – that includes our fraud-in-chief.

    The 911 castastrophy showed that we can and do join together to recover as one people. Maybe it was because New York was run by Mayor Gulliano (a REPUBLICAN!!). (Haven’t seen a Democrat Mayor or Governor “unite” anyone lately. All they do is “divide” the people against one another.) We don’t need our own President dividing us and pitting us agaisnt our selves just so he can declare martial law and take over militarily.

    • Taquoshi

      Walmart has a soda called Dr. Thunder, which we find to be quite enjoyable.

    • Liberty1st

      Would you please run for office… I would vote for you!

  • Liberty1st

    I was in dis-belief as the ad played out. I could not believe how stupid Coca Cola was to think that the red blooded audience watching would approve! I immediately turned to my husband and said…. I guess we will be drinking only Pepsi from now on….!
    I believe in the melting pot of America BUT immigrants come here for the American Dream. As President Roosevelt said…. immigrants are welcome but must pledge their allegiance to THIS country and must learn our language, English! That being said…this ad only fortified that America is in downfall and that for the sake of a buck (advertising) our major corporations are selling out too! It would have been a great commercial if they had all sang with accents thus encouraging others to learn English. Sad…..

  • jumara

    it’s time that real americans take the offense.not liking someone or something is ok,not respecting someone or their opinion is not ok.the reason America became the country of choice is because immigrants wanted to become americans.now many immigrants want to remain as they arrived and not become American.americans speak English,wear similar dress strive for a better life than the one they left and not become a burden to others but make a place for themselves in the American society.liberals who tear down American traditions and distort our history are anti americans and should be recognized for this.if your not for the constitution and the laws of our land then you are anti American and a dissident of what America stands for.coming here illegally and becoming a burden to others is not a good thing.liberals want no id voting so they can steal elections and control not only the government but also the people in the country.if your here illegally why would you want to tear down a country that will become worse than the one you left?thats what liberals offer you.government contrl and little or no opportunity.

    • Lois Jane Zellers

      very well said

    • Liberty1st

      Exactly!!!

  • LibertysSon

    If Coke is Enamored With Multiple language use, why don’t they print their cans in multiple languages and distribute that in America?

    • Tired of lying liberals

      They did that back in the 70’s.

    • 83footsailor

      YOU ARE SO CORECT ON THAT STATMENT. . !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • Rhonda Renee Sessions

    Exactly my and my husband’s thoughts when we saw/heard this commercial!

  • Jason H Kendall

    It’s funny to me — no one is upset that Coke or other sodas make people fat, dumb and slowly kills them — yet they are offended by a song sung in another language –

    • RangerRick

      That’s a personal choice brought to you by the freedoms we take for granted-if a person wants to get fat and unhealthy that’s their prerogative. It’s all about choices here in the land of the free. The moment liberals and their ilk start demanding I accept another’s language as a norm and I’m told to assimilate to their ways is where I draw the line. Coke will reap what they sow and miss out on my dollars.

      • Jason H Kendall

        is it a personal choice that i have to pay the doctor bills of the sick and ill who drinks gallons of corn syrup on a daily basis?

      • RangerRick

        It’s no more fair than me having to pay for abortions, medical marijuana, or welfare and food stamps. If you don’t like it, talk to your representatives and make changes to the laws. Better yet, run for office and have a bigger impact. That’s how democracy works.

      • Jason H Kendall

        you left out corporate welfare — why does always everyone leave that out? it costs the most by far — look at the farm bills — half of the subsidizes went to Corporate farms — why do you pay for med marijuana?

      • Liberty1st

        Keep it up RangerRick and I will have to ask you to run for office!

      • Liberty1st

        I meant that positively!

  • disqus_r5xJSwmcIW

    My daughter, age 11, adopted from China made a comment right away about “why are foreign people singing about America? She picked it up as “odd” right away. She considers herself American, not “Chinese.” I thought, hey, this is kinda neat….these are foreigners who have come to America and are signing about how beautiful it is because they LOVE America. I knew, though, that this commercial would cause controversy. Something Coke, I am sure, loves. On the other hand….I still remember the commercial Coke had that started with “I’d like to teach the world to sing.. in perfect harmony….” Remember that? I think perhaps Coke may be perpetuating that message and theme in a different way with this commercial. America is beautiful. Acceptance is beautiful. What matters more than what language you speak is how to handle diversity in America. I thought the ad was well done and represented a diverse population who love and think America is beautiful.

    • Liberty1st

      Sorry…. all this commercial did was perpetuate that immigrants don’t have to or are not learning our language! You taught your daughter English I presume? English is this countries language. Diversity is great…but in order to have common ground … English must be encouraged. If they had sang with accents…it would have been great and would have encouraged other immigrants to learn English. Why do people want to take diversity to far? Do you want America full of pockets with other languages used? Culture is fine…at home or in communities but one language is what a strong country needs. Not pockets with their own language creating chaos.
      We welcome all but like President Roosevelt said years ago…..they must pledge allegiance to this country and learn our language! PERIOD.

  • pappap42

    Just one more reason not to drink coke.

    Sorry COKE – but that PIECE is to be sung in ** ENGLISH ONLY ** . !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This PIECE is part of AMERICAN HISTORY . !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ForrestHorn

    I don’t drink the damned stuff anyway, so meh!

  • leighstitcher

    What bothers me most about this commercial is that the ad agency and the Coca Cola company chose to highlight Muslims and others who are actively working to kill everyone who does not believe the way they do.

  • RedMeatState

    the fact that we desire to speak in ONE LANGUAGE signifies our desire for UNITY!~ separating us into different language groups, separate cultures, etc., is a recipe for division and Balkanization. You can’t have different cultures with different laws operating in harmony together. There has to be unity and consistency. That’s exactly why Sharia can’t co-exist with our laws.

    • skillet56

      You have it exactly right. We are a melting pot. And out of the melting pot arises a unity of one. There are other languages for Coke; it’s called Pepsi. And since Coke seems to enjoy diversity, perhaps it’s time to try diversity in out taste buds.

      • FIRE1949

        Nah, I’ll drink water.
        Besides, I can buy more whiskey to put in my water since tap water is a whole lot cheaper than Coke or Pepsi..

      • RedMeatState

        stopped drinking all of them a couple years ago. we now drink regular seltzer water when we want something bubbly. maybe we should get a SodaStream?

  • Tim Bell

    I feel flattered that people would take my song of my country and sing in in their language. That makes them envious and me proud. I kind of hope that is what Coke was trying to say….

  • The Big Kahuna

    “endless unemployment benefits”, are there until after the election, when the “under employed” discover that the job market not going to return, their high paying jobs longer exists, because their jobs went to China and India, and lastly they have to take a job flipping burgers at McDonald’s poison food company “”Super Size Me!”

    • Dodie1990

      After unemployment they go on permanent disability. Exactly double the number on disability today as were on when Obama took office. And states are glad to get these people off trheir unemployment fund and on the federal disability. They will not be rushing to Wal-Mart or McDonalds. And sing America the beautiful in English. Please stop pandering to illegalsd and those who refuse to speak/leaern our language. They can take our free ride but not learn the language. Think you could apply for a welfare check or driver’s inMexico in English?

      • Mac Boy

        Habla English – or GTFO !!

      • Dodie1990

        100% right

    • 5live5

      Especially when there is 11 to 20 Million MORE legalized illegals on the job market!!!

  • Leijona

    I think it was a wonderful add. Put your big boy pants on America and grow up. I bet most of those complaining are Creationists, since that sort of ignorance is not restrained to racism. Maybe if you admitted that we all come from the same ancestors, you could move forward.

    • Taquoshi

      Get a life, Leijona. If someone was actually a creationist, as you claim, they would know that there is only one race – the human race.

    • ihavetopickastupidname

      So you say Creationism is ignorance, but then you turn around and say we come from the same ancestors, ever heard of Noah?

    • Mac Boy

      Semper Fi !

      • Leijona

        That is exactly what the add meant, is it not? They were simply having people from all different ethnic backgrounds singing America The Beautiful in their native language.

    • baryoboy

      when you lose your big boy pants and have to speak another language then say what you said .there is no respect for the dead ones who fought for AMERICA. COKE SUCKS

    • Bos95

      Every other country has a national language. Ours is English. Almost every prior ancester who came here learned to speak English. I have friends and family who came here from Cuba. They all learned to speak English and believe everyone should. The coke ad was an insult to every American.

    • 5live5

      Leijona, if you liked your former country so well, why did you LEAVE???

      • Leijona

        This is my country, I’m a Vietnam Veteran, and you are a Bigot. Hopefully, a dying breed in this country.

      • 5live5

        Well, then we have something in common. I spent 18 months there as a crew chief/ door gunner. Oh, btw, I have a lot of minority friends that would tell you that you are full of $hit.

      • Leijona

        Well I’m glad you made it home. That’s why we fought, for the right to disagree. Sorry for calling you a bigot. It was my impression that the intent of the add was to show the diversity in the USA and the fact that people of all ethnic backgrounds call it the home that they love, hence the song in different languages. I did not see it as a press 1 for English thing. I guess I was seeing it in a different light. Again, Welcome home

      • 5live5

        Same to you, Brother!!

    • RDavis49

      How do you answer such an ignoramus comment as this except to say…. you’re screwed up in the head Leijona…

  • floridarooster

    What were the Coke management knuckleheads thinking? They offend the huge majority of American citizens to please a small minority who don’t speak our national language and probably are not citizens. They could have communicated the same “melting pot” message in English as the graphics were enough. Liberals never cease to amaze me.

  • jaxtom

    “We must find and kill all the foreign devils” – paraphrase: any Indian post 1492….(I will assume their intention was to highlight the multiple immigrants who come here to enjoy freedom and are singing the best they can soon after they arrive & realize what they now have.)

    • RDavis49

      Why don’t you just come right out and say what the hell you mean instead of pussyfooting around about it with a bunch of double talk.

      • jaxtom

        sure…what’s your native language?

  • randykirk

    LOL. Guess it was still too early for my pea brain here in Cali. Let me see, the most iconic symbol of America is the statue of liberty. All of my ancestry was Scotch, Irish, English. But my kids have plenty of other cultures through their Mom. So, when her ancestors became citizens, their first language wasn’t English. But the next generation is, of course. This kind of much ado takes our focus off the real prize. We need to provide better solutions and sell the folks that we have a way to rebuild the middle class through getting Obama and his buddies out of the way of businesses, large and small.

    • Lynnie59

      My Great Grandparents came to our country from Poland and they both were proud to become citizens, and put much effort into speaking our country’s official language–ENGLISH. They did not act arrogant or entitled, and knew, by asking to become part of our country, they needed to assimilate, and in order to be part of our society and function in it, English was a MUST. They spoke Polish to other family members, but, had to communicate with their younger generations and did it very well. This ideal has been lost by many, too many come here with an attitude of entitlement and still march and carry their country of origin flags (Mexicans) and are fine staying separate while living and enjoying our country’s resources! This is NOT the America our forefathers designed or could ever imagine! It is offensive for Coke to create this propaganda with other languages singing a song that is beloved by our citizens!! More liberalism shoved down our throats….

  • RDavis49

    A house divided against itself cannot stand….. IMO singing a song in various languages which offend patriotic Americans will not unite the people. A heart of American Patriotism, a personal pride in being an American and a love for our beautiful country, it’s constitution, it’s freedoms and laws will unite us as one people, One Nation…

  • Patriot304

    Diversity and multiculturalism is fine but that doesn’t mean that it is OK to discard OUR language. We speak ENGLISH in this country. People who choose to come to this country to live, both those who come legally AND those who come illegally, must understand and accept this. English should have been made the OFFICIAL language of this country years ago but our ‘do nothing to offend’ politicians avoid doing anything that will offend anyone. Anyone other than ‘We the People’ that is!!!
    Being able to communicate in a common language is vital. If people want to come here to live they MUST be required to LEARN THE LINGO. The ENGLISH lingo!

  • Rod Huse

    Coca-Cola, bho, his cabinet of clowns, and many in Congress as well as the Supreme Court jesters do not understand that America has a Constitution and in it, it specifically outlines qualifications for an AMERICAN president and the requirements to become a US citizen.
    Plain and simple, come to America, apply for legal immigration, and learn the English language as specified in our immigration laws. English is the language spoken in these once United States of America.
    If you do not want to do that, return to your own country !!!!

    • AbleAmerican1

      Check out the ‘requirements’ to move into & become a Russian ‘citizen’..It’s very similar to what our Constitution lays out.BUT..THEY MEAN WHAT THEY SAY..OR YA’ AIN’T GONNA GET TO STAY..PERIOD!!!!!

      • Rod Huse

        I think Russia is mild compared to the southern country—–Mexico. They have very stringent immigration laws, but yet their citizens think the USA is too harsh.
        It is the current dumbocrap mentality that is causing this country to go down the sewer.

  • patriotfirst

    Being multi-lingual has great advantages, but a nation that does not enforce the supremacy of a national language in all areas, government, commerce, etc. the message tends to become convoluted and not united in its principles. Just go look at India… Also the American land mass is much larger than most all of the European countries combined. Why would I need to learn another language, which I already do, except for economic reasons or familial ties?

  • RDavis49

    Why does everything you say seem to have an air of communism behind it? There’s no one saying that it’s taboo to learn another language, but when you try to change and or incorporate multiple languages into a society rather than have one main language for communication…. you end up with a nation full of babblers. I have no problem with visitors who don’t speak our language and will do my very best to be courteous and helpful to them…. I do, however, have a problem with those who come here to live and expect the nation to change to suit their chosen language. If I move to Mexico… I WILL learn the language and not expect everyone there to speak English to accommodate me. How friggin’ selfish can one get?

    Coke & Pepsi are full of High Fructose corn syrup so skipping them is good for you! If you must drink cola, try RC. Learn English. Pressing one for English infuriates me. But then almost everything today infuriates me. Help stamp out PC and take back America. Sorry but we’re NOT all equal and handicapping the best & brightest & most ambitious just makes us all the Dumbest! You want it, work for it. I did. Inequality is great. I’m all for it. Kick them when they are down Brethren, and give them the incentive to rise above it. That’s how America got great. Bring back Opportunity. Get rid of all the government regulations, subsidies, EPA, handouts, and bring on small government.

      Time to make English as the official language. Outlawing the use of other languages in most commercial enterprises except when health and safety are at issue.

    If you think America is a minority in the world , do you count the Americans in their graves in Europe ? You know , the ones`that died for your freedom that you wouldn`t otherwise have if not for American blood on all the soil of Europe ! Without the American minority as you say , you would be speaking German and only German !

      Charles, I was a pop-aholic (Diet Coke) until this bout with rectal cancer. Now I don’t drink any carbonated beverages, but when my taste buds return to normal, no more Diet Coke for me. I’m done with them. I think it’s going to be RC for me. Thanks, Charles.

  • agbjr

    Our nationally-spoken language – English – is taught in the schools of just about every nation on earth and in some places – Europe, China, Japan, Russia – a working knowledge of English is mandatory. It long ago supplanted French as the preferred language of diplomacy and German as the language of technology. To paraphrase your comment, eventually you have to realize that English-speaking Americans have been a positive influence in the world.

  • RDavis49

    Here’s a very good reason NOT to drink Coca Cola or any other drink that contains High Fructose Corn Syrup or it’s by products.

    From an article in the Huffington Post…… “The average 20-ounce soda contains 15 teaspoons of sugar, all of it high fructose corn syrup. And when you eat sugar in those doses, it becomes a toxin. “

  • katpac

    I grew up in an immigrant neighborhood; many coming in the early 1900s to work the mills. While they maintained their ethnic pride in food and traditions, they assimilated into American culture and learned the language. My father-in-law’s parents were immigrants from Poland, the parents did not allow their children to speak Polish, they had to speak English. The problem with America today is that progressives don’t like America, they don’t honor American culture and they seek to weaken it by dividing us. Though my great-grandparents hailed from Italy, please don’t call me Italian-American. Though I delight in my heritage, I am first and foremost American, pure and simple.

    • rosech

      Exactly and I agree with you. I grew up with blacks, Mexicans, indians, pole, jews, irish, german peoples. I remember vividly the Jews who did not die in the holocaust with the numbers tattooed on their forearms and grateful and giving they were to be in America, and German soldiers held here but wanted to become American citizens and have freedom and a real future. Thanks to decades of Demo socialists and communists, RINOS and moderates, we are on the very verge of losing our country. Are we the national militia or just a bunch of cowards who would never leave England’s shores, throw away tea, and go on to revolt and give us such a great heritage. Our choice, isn’t it?

    • KAOIrish

      Well stated, thank you!!!

    • randykirk

      I really don’t think Coke is hoping that the US will become Balkanized. Nothing could be worse for the country. Why does it seem so hard to imagine that they were celebrating our one from many, not trying to create any kind of culture war statement.

      • katpac

        I think my post states the celebration of diversity; however, that is secondary to a national identity. The progressive narrative is the demeaning of a collective American culture; they don’t celebrate the one, rather they seek to divide along racial, cultural, gender, etc., etc., lines. They are pushing immigration reform and trying to manipulate the conversation that if you don’t embrace it, you are a bigoted and close-minded person. Coca-cola plays right into that with this commerical. Conquer and divide it is the progressive way.

      • Mac Boy

      • GeneP54

        Because of the song they chose to sing? “America the Beautiful” is a song about ….America… where we speak English (of sorts), celebrate our diversity, even heritage, but still recognize that HERE we are ONE Nation under God. Acknowledging our history isn’t the problem. It’s the fact that we are dissolving into a nation that, as America, is becoming unrecognizable.
        I guess if you need this explained, then an explanation would be lost on you.

  • benfaust

    A multilingual nation equals a nation of unity? Let’s look at the first multilingual society and see how that idea played out.

    “And the Lord said, ‘Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.’ So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city. Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.” (Genesis 11:6-9 NKJV)

  • bungicord

  • rosech

    Coca Cola company must be using the cocaine it used to contain (as a medicine, mind you) because I agree, English is OUR language and get used to it. Illegals insult us, hate our flag, don’t want to pay taxes, want to rob our tax money for attending our schools and ruining real education for English-speaking students, leave trash wherever (making America a cocinada! like their home country), having children so they can get more of tax dole money, and just as rapidly as the muslims who love being on our dole as well. America is no longer friendly but put upon and why should we have to bow down and accept this garbage. Liberals want it? Great, then let them move out of the USA and live their supposedly great lives. We need our country back and we need to get ready to fight for it. Remember, yesterday and the lousy song lyrics and the word “Prepare”. Take that as a warning and be prepared to meet these preparers!

    • Jason H Kendall

      Halliburton saved money by having large concentrations of troops together at mealtime, thus exposing them to attacks — food should have been available around the clock. Coca-Cola was actually made in the desert at a cost of $45 per six-pack. The company charged $99 per bag of laundry and sent it out of Iraq for cleaning. Mail delivery was charged by the truckload, even when there was only one sack in the truck. No spare tires or parts were sent to Iraq, so when vehicles broke down, they were simply destroyed. — so moron — Halliburton was charging the US govt — taxpayer — $45 for a 6 pack that was made in Iraq — go jump off a bridge – -one less idiot

      They aren’t doing them now what makes you think they will.When the Blacks went to war and was in France they made a racists song about them.So what makes you believe they will settle for them so called jobs Americans WON”T do,when they aren’t settling for them now!That’s why Democrats want to give amnesty to low level educated migrant workers,who can be hired at a low wage and doesn’t know anything else.

      Penned in the wake ofAmerica’s entry into World War One, How ‘Ya Gonna Keep ‘Em Down on the Farm? (After They’ve Seen Paree) was written by Joe Young and Sam M. Lewis with music by Walter Donaldson, and was published in 1918. A huge popular success at the time the song was performed by a great many artists in the immediate post-war years.
      Reproduced below are the lyrics to the song. Use the player above to listen to a version performed by Harry Fay in 1918.

      How ‘Ya Gonna Keep ‘Em Down on the Farm
      (After They’ve Seen Paree)

      Reuben, Reuben, I’ve been thinking
      Said his wifey dear
      Now that all is peaceful and calm
      The boys will soon be back on the farm
      Mister Reuben started winking and slowly rubbed his chin
      He pulled his chair up close to mother
      And he asked her with a grin

      Chorus (sung twice after each verse):
      How ya gonna keep ‘em down on the farm
      After they’ve seen Paree’
      How ya gonna keep ‘em away from Broadway
      Jazzin around and paintin’ the town
      How ya gonna keep ‘em away from harm, that’s a mystery
      They’ll never want to see a rake or plow
      And who the deuce can parleyvous a cow?
      How ya gonna keep ‘em down on the farm
      After they’ve seen Paree’

      Rueben, Rueben, you’re mistaken
      Said his wifey dear
      Once a farmer, always a jay
      And farmers always stick to the hay
      Mother Reuben, I’m not fakin
      Tho you may think it strange
      But wine and women play the mischief
      With a boy who’s loose with change

      Chorus (sung twice after each verse):
      How ya gonna keep ‘em down on the farm
      After they’ve seen Paree’
      How ya gonna keep ‘em away from Broadway
      Jazzin around and paintin’ the town
      How ya gonna keep ‘em away from harm, that’s a mystery
      Imagine Reuben when he meets his Pa
      He’ll kiss his cheek and holler “OO-LA-LA!
      How ya gonna keep ‘em down on the farm
      After they’ve seen Paree’?

      There’s not a job out there that Americans won’t do with 12 million out of work and some working two jobs at McDonalds just to make what they used to at jobs they had but are now being filled with Illegals who will do it cheaper !College students can’t even find a job in their fields they went to college to get a degree to earn and can’t even pay off their student loans interest payments ?

    • ChristainWest

      Some illegal aliens, once legalized, will continue with the menial jobs. But there will also be some who will go after the jobs that the ‘professionally’ unemployed refuse to take. True there are some legitimately unemployed but those people actually do look for jobs while the ‘professionally’ unemployed are content to be paid to not work.. I do believe its true that the immigrants do do the jobs that all too many Americans won’t. If i understand your question properly, you are assuming that the illegals, once legalized, are ambitious, hard working and can thereby , just take jobs from Americans. I also interpret your question to say that it’s better to keep illegals illegal in order to be able to continue to hire them to do those menial tasks that nobody else will do. Your question also seems to underline the need for people to do those menial taks that “nobody else will do”. So, i suppose you favor Republican Party desire to issue more visas for highly educated / trained people in certain foreign lands. And i also suppose that you may favor Republican party to use the legal immigration system as a trading chip by their multi-national campaign contributors who wish to use to bargain for opening factories in foreign lands (such as in Communist China and India, etc.) where they can employ millioins upon millions more Chinese and Indians, etc. in those foreign lands. Am i correct, do you favor legal immigration regardles of how many millions upon millions of jobs and manufacturing industries it facilitates moving overseas ?

      • Tbird 2

        Don’t you think it rather stupid to show the Mexicans and the Muslims invading our land and you want them to sing our Song.. No more Coke for ME.

      • 5live5

        First, is the answer to those hard working US citizens that ARE actively looking for jobs that are scarce, to add 11 to 22 million MORE applicants to the market??? As for what I favor, like any other THINKING US citizen, I favor LEGAL IMMIGRATION through PROPER CHANNELS! If they came here illegally, they broke a law. If YOU break a law, what happens? YOU GET PROPER PUNISHMENT. you don’t get rewarded. Get in line and come here through the front door like the Former Mexicans I have for friends and I will welcome them with open arms. Come here through the back door and I expect them to be sent packing. Make E-verify mandatory and permanent so that employers can’t employ them and landlords can’t rent to them, and they will self deport! It’s the jobs that bring them here, dry up the jobs for them! If it starts costing the employers more than they save them, they’ll stop hiring them. I say US citizens and LEGAL immigrants come FIRST, LAST, and FOREMOST! Hell our troops are coming home after fighting for this country and can’t get jobs yet you want the illegals to get work?? Real good!!! NOT!

    Personally, My family and I do not drink soft drinks.. we do not have television in our home, (Not connected to any broadcast, only DVDs that have been screened) so the promotion of the current social trends in Amerika.. and I spelled it correctly… by Coca-Cola is not effecting our family. 90 percent of Amerikans have been brain washed by the media, public schools, universitys any ways.. so why cry about this? Seems a huge waste of time for everyone to keep focusing on this or that.. the heart of the matter is that Amerika has become a melting pot of peoples, morals and ways of life.. so much so that what use to be, is no more. Amerika for the most part is a Godless nation of people who just simply want to live their lives any way they choose, with no moral conscience form outside their own thinking… No moral controls.. no guidelines.. all is up to the society of the day to decide what is right and what is wrong… that is Amerika now.

    My parents are native Americans and when they attended school they were punished for speaking their native language.and made fun of for doing so.It’s one thing to be multilingual but When other cultures come here and refuse assumulate to learn our language and our laws they are breaking the promise that they made to become citizens of this country,it’s not that they can not retain their culture but when they create such rules and rituals that are not acceptable or opposed to ours under the requirements of their becoming a citizen it is creating a schism between those cultures that we are proud of being one nation under GOD!that doesn mean they must believe in the same religion or the same GOD,but their beliefs must respect those who do,just as we respect those who don’t,but that doesn’t give them the right or power to form their mini social order that they were under in their country they left or escaped from.Or try and change our laws to accept the laws they were held to obey by force or threat of persecution.That isn’t liberty or freedom
    Freedom of religion doesn’t mean that one religion is better than the others but it does mean that they are not allowed to try and force their religious dogma on others are prevent those who don’t choose or make choices by those that are not tolerant of others and their religious convictions.Any religion that preaches total submission and preach violence on others is not acceptable.That’s why this nation was founded on, that we did not accept the kings creating one church of England and one belief system that denied those God given rights that we as a free society and our creator gave us and we the people created the Constitution to be governed by.

  • Emanon65

    We haven’t had these issues of multiculturalism until the Islamists started to pour into America. Other cultures might not assimilate, but they were not in your face as the Islamists are. They are becoming more and more brazen because they know Americans are afraid of them.
    The others followed suit, now. Are we going to stand for this, or are we rising up against this injustice?

    • Flashbk

      Emanon……….I for one can tell you when they come into where I work I have to stare them down, your right they think we are afraid…….. that goes for all the indians that come here from that nasty part of the world (not American Indians) we also need to boycott AMEX for sending all the jobs and bringing in all the indians. ENOUGH of selling our country out to make a profit…………has anyone seen the market today, it’s killing me!!!!!!

      Cheerios didn’t bother me. Black people speak English and were born here. The Coke commercial disgusted me.

    • Flashbk

      I agree with never buying another coke product, don’t agree with your point on marriage between blacks and whites. I grew up on the south side of Chicago in a very white very Italian neighborhood and served my once great country. Blacks are just as much Americans as you and I, let us not forget they may not even be here if not for our history with slavery. I say enough of the black white thing, that goes for blacks also enough of the (I’m a victim stuff)
      God Bless this once great nation and show us the way back to what made us great.

  • LetsJustVoidTheBillOfRights

    FOR VLAD and the rest of you meatheads below: Maybe so, Vlad, old sod, but HERE in America, we’re not a minority, and we do things OUR way. I don’t feel inferior at all. If you do, that’s a problem YOU need to deal with and NOT try to impose on us. I could care less how many languages you speak. I do care that, if you want to live here, you be a productive member of AMERICAN society, and you have the BEST chance to do that if you speak English WELL! If you’re here to BE an American, you should try it the way we’ve done it – and done it very successfully for a couple hundred years – until very recently, as the atheists and the communists have gained a lot of ground. If you are, as you appear, a “proud” inferior Russian, you have but to look at last 100 years of your own history. I know your history and it took you 70 BLOODY, BLOODY YEARS – WITH RONALD REAGAN’S HELP – to beat the commies (and a thousand years of the Tzars before that). And a generation later you STILL haven’t made ANY significant progress against organized crime or your newest dictator. We’re not blind, sir, and most of us know EXACTLY why immigrants from every corner of the globe come here. Freedom and OPPORTUNITY, neither of which can be found where they CAME FROM. If you’re HALF as smart as you THINK you are, you ought to have a pretty clear picture of how things will be here in the next decade or so if we listen to “inferiors” like you. Where many of you come from, your half-wits run the risk of jail, or worse, for speaking their minds – REGARDLESS how many languages you speak…. And the wars are never-ending, to INCLUDE ethnic cleansings and terrorist incursions. I guess what I’m saying is, you can come here and criticize, but don’t EXPECT things to change just because you did things differently where you came from. If YOUR WAY is a better way, sir, please feel free to hurry back to it. If you’re a holier-than-thou American elitist/liberal/commie hiding behind a cartoon, kiss a duck! Go give Russia or Cuba or China or Mexico or Iraq/Iran/Afghanistan a try for longer than a vacation. See how you like it.

  • Crystalsinger

    All the different races and faces are fine. Singing our historical patriotic songs, or the National Anthem, etc. which were written in English, in tons of OTHER languages, is not fine! If these people are indeed Americans, they should learn English, assimilate, and love their new country enough to learn its patriotic songs as they were written. This is the melting pot, not the Balkans. If people want to learn and/or speak an additional language in their private spheres, or study it in school, fine. I am moderately trilingual myself. But our songs and Founding Documents are in English. Learn the language if you are indeed an American. Shame on you, Coke. Who advised you on this one? Yes, you are a world product. You could have easily portrayed that WITHOUT using this song in other languages to do so. Another example of multinational corporation elites promoting globalism and diminishing national sovereignty. We are seeing more and more of this every year. Oh, and one more comment. Since most public schools are no longer teaching cursive, soon our own children will not be able to read the USA’s Founding Documents in their original form.

    • Harry Stearns

  • FlamingFury

    When I have visited a foreign country, I did my best to speak their language. Spanish in Mexico, Danish or Norwegian in those countries. I went to Germany specifically to learn German, and I lived in Japan for 3 years and learned enough of that language to get around. I was laughed at before heading to Japan because “it’s such a difficult language and everybody over there speaks English.” I was still in my 20s when that happened, and even then I thought, “no wonder we’re called the Ugly American.” I made a lot of mistakes, but the people appreciated my efforts, and they treated me most graciously because, when living in their country, I made the effort to assimilate and honor their customs.
    When I took a course in semantics, the textbook was “Language in Thought and Action” by the late S.I. Hayakawa. He states in the book that a person’s language is not necessarily molded by his thought patterns but rather, the other way around, that our thoughts are molded by the language we speak. So if one speaks more than one language, one gets a very rounded view of the world.
    Those who come here to live need to assimilate and use the language of this country, English. If Hayakawa’s theory is correct, this will help them to understand The American Way. And we don’t want that American Way changed to the Mexican way, the Arabic way, the Vietnamese way or any other way. The American Way is what made this nation what it is so as to be attractive to all those who come here seeking The American Dream. If you want “your way,” go back home and speak only your native tongue.

    I grew up in St Louis in the 50’s. We had the German Section, the Jewish neighborhoods, and the Hill (where the Italian’s lived). Then there was the black sections downtown. The city was completely balkanized. Now I live in Los Angeles, where my neighbors and the folks in my conservative (Calvary) church are every color, background, etc. It seems like we are heading away from balkanization, not towards.

    I do worry about the campuses, however. I see far more “group” stuff going on there. Don’t boycott Coke. Find a way to get the campuses back.

  • roadking2000

    It IS offensive! I might sound like a redneck by saying this, but if you are going to live here, LEARN THE DAMNED LANGUAGE! I would expect to be told the same if I wanted to live in any country that’s language was different than mine. The Executives at Coke should have known better. MANY Americans are pissed about these people (mostly illegal criminals) that want to come here and expect us to cater to their language, traditions, etc. TO HELL WITH THAT!

    Well, Coke, you just elevated my opinion of you. I have traveled in about 28 countries and Coke has always been there. In Siberia I looked for a day but finally in a flea market there was a beautiful Light (diet) Coke. Most folks did not know what they were, but I did, so I bought them all. Everywhere I found that they connected Coke with America the Wonderful land of freedom. God bless America.

  • digdeeper

    The concept is assimilation into America, which those who come here are
    no longer willing to do or are too ignorant to know that’s what’s
    expected. I’m not sure why they’re here if they don’t want to become
    Americans, proud and patriotic. Pockets of divergent nationalities does
    not bode well for our “United” states, but is trending more like Europe
    and a variety of nations. It also set up a multitude of potentials for
    antagonism and strife. We just need out illustrious representatives to
    get some guts and stand up for out country, our rights, and our
    sovereignty. We don’t need out traditional songs translated into a multitude of languages, thank you! and why just a few? I’m Hungarian and I didn’t hear a word of Hungarian. Thus not representative of ALL …. at all! Coke, get a grip! You won’t see me buying any!

  • FlamingFury

    There was a time when immigrants to this country made a rule upon arriving here that only English would be spoken. Many young people (like my mother) might have grown up in a bi-lingual household but for that rule, but those patriotic souls felt that they came for the American Dream and by darn, they were going to be as totally American as they could.

    Now that idea is totally turned on its head. I’m supposed to speak Spanish to people who work for me or at places I do business with because the workers there aren’t required to learn English.
    Bad idea.

I agree with another poster that they should have all been holding American flags and I think singing with accents so that others watching would aspire to learn English. If you CHOOSE to live here…. do as we do…not as the libtards would have you believe. Having said tha,t I am quite sure many liberals also had distain for this commercial.

    Coca-Cola is a multi-natiuonal global corporation. As such, it is far far more likely to be affiliated with the elite, globalists, multi-nationalists Republican Party and not liberal Democrats. Coca-Cola is theeeeeee most highly rocognized logo throughout the entire planet. Perhaps Coca-Cola was trying to appeal to people from around the world. The ad was a mistake and an easy target for xenophobic ‘patriots’. . If Coca-Cola had used “We are the world” instead of “America the Beautiful” , they probably would not have caused so much angst among the people. It was definately premature, to say the least, to have any apparenty Islamic woman in the ad at the same time Islam is attacking the entire world, no matter how beautiful she was. Islam is still attacking us, they openly talk about attacking us. Even using a disarmingly beautiful woman could be seen as disarming in the face of an actual enemy.

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and “assimilating” with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    The United States was designed to be a country where its citizenry is protected by a rule of law, rather than a central authority that rules by whims. This United States was designed to be a culture of freedom, liberty, personal responsibility, and the love of a nation where the individual is sacrosanct.

    Now, if you prefer a country where you have hundreds of thousands of enclaves of different cultures, some of which want to reproduce the very miserable conditions that they’ve “escaped from,” then you’re an idiot. Europe is finally waking up about the insanity of “multiculturalism,” because it has made a great place to live like Sweden into the rape capital of the world, and the streets of Oslo, Paris, and Berlin unsafe to walk, even in broad daylight.

    IF someone feels the need to “escape” from a country because it is a virtual hell-hole, and they want to come here to live in our wonderful country, and embrace our ways and means, because they believe that the ways and means of free men and women is what made this country great, then I welcome them with open arms. If they’ve come here just because they know that the welfare state grant their every whim, and satisfy all who have their hands out, and in the process, create an enclave of their own little corner of Sudan, Pakistan, Mexico, or some other place where poverty and degradation reign, in an American community, then they should be sent BACK to where their hearts and minds still reside.

    Bigotry has nothing to do with it. It is all about the survival of our country. Balkanizing us with multiculturalism will destroy us.

    I have to ask myself if this is any more offensive than people who insist on putting their own interpretation on the Star Spangled Banner when they sing it at public events, often to the point that the piece is nearly unrecognizable. In this case, I’m saying it’s a draw! Like so many others I’ve talked with, I welcome any immigrant who migrates here through the legal process, with the honest intention to fully assimilate into the American culture. On the other hand I refuse to make welcome those who enter illegally, transplant their native culture in its entirety, and then expect us to make accommodations to it. This Nation used to be referred to as a “melting pot” where all the human ingredients mixed in so as to indistinguishable from one another, with each improving the final result.

    Now it’s more like a salad, where each ingredient stands apart on its own, and as with salads, too much of any one ingredient spoils the whole thing.

      You do know that America goes from the Arctic circle to Terra del Fuego? We’re the US of A. All of America is beautiful. And we speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and a bunch of other languages.

  • threebarrs

    If Coca Cola had really wanted to tie it all together after showing the diversity of our peoples, they should have had someone from each nationality in a group (choir) that sang all together in English for the final part of the commercial. That would show our national unity as well! I’m disappointed that all they showed was diversity because that is not the end of the equation…..

    • PatMan

      Excellent point!

  • simoner1

    The liberals who accept multiculturalism are nothing but Socialists who have no allegiance to their country at all. These people are what used to be called useful idiots that prostrated themselves for the Communists that infiltrated America to destroy us from within. It was Stalin that said to undermine America, you must destroy her patriotism, spirituality and morality. These useful idiots are still at it and you can see why America today is rotting at the core. As for our politicians who want a pathway to citizenship, I say no way. You don’t reward people for breaking our laws, living off the tax payer and having them vote Democrat to get more of the same. My prescription for immigration reform is to deport all illegal aliens in the accordance with the law, halt immigration entirely for the next 50 years and then reinstitute the immigration policy that was in force prior to 1965. Now that would be real reform that would benefit America.

    • sleepergirl

      I believe it was the late Ted Kennedy whose hand was in the significant change in immigration policy that essentially kept our Europeans and only allowed the uneducated Third World immigrants access to our country. I agree we should halt immigration completely until we get control of our borders and who is already here illegally. (I’m not suggesting any sort of legalization or “forgiveness.” What is happening under our noses is the institution of an Open Society like Soros supports. They want no more national identities or cultures or customs. All should be the same regardless of where you travel or live. Who wants that?

    • Ray_Downen

      Our nation has long been a place of refuge for the poor and mistreated of other nations. It should be the same kind of nation always. But with Obama in charge, the only immigrants welcomed are Muslims coming here to take over. See what’s happened in Dearborn, Michigan as a result of Obama’s immigration policies. Meanwhile refugees from Muslim oppression who seek to come here legally are prevented from doing so by the present administration.

    The STUPID people at Coke need to read the CONSTITUTION and see about what language that America speaks, and What Flag we fly! We have room for but one language, ENGLISH, and we have room but for one Flag, OLD GLORY, and if you don’t believe that you are in the wrong country! The reason America is great is because of UNITY not diversity, you morons! We should be on the SAME SIDE and pulling for the SAME GOALS. Did not the Tower Of Babel; teach you ANYTHING? Or the falling of Rome and many other Great Countries? To break into so many directions is the end of America and our Way of Life and I don’t want to give that up to a bunch of people that don’t care about OUR COUNTRY! Common sense has just about left our country, some need to stay the same for the right reasons, and our Way of Life and Country just happens to be tow of them!Semper Fi.

    • winki

      I agree with what you’re saying but unfortunately I don’t believe that the United States has ever adopted a language. It’s taken for granted that our language is English, but it’s not in the Constitution and to my knowledge has never been voted on. It’s been brought up several times, but nothing official has ever come of it.
      If they’re going to come here they need to learn the accepted language and adapt to our laws. If they want to keep their culture in their home that ‘s fine. But if they want to migrate here because things are so bad at home, then they don’t need to perpetuate that lifestyle.

      • willhen50

        The language was not adopted by federal standards, but it is the official language of a majority of states.

      • winki

        OK that’s good. I did not think it had been voted on as a national language. I know the subject has come up several times but for some reason never voted on as an offilcial national language. I think it needs to be. And I think immigrants here should learn it.

      • Tired of lying liberals

        If there was a referendum on a national language, I’d vote for English. But we shouldn’t stop companies from using other languages to reach their customers.

        As was noted earlier, the original referendum around the time of the Constitution was between English and German. English passed by one vote! It wasn’t selected as the legally official language but it was selected as the language they’d use to write all of the government’s papers. It just became common practice until lately. We should have a legally mandated national language and it should be English. All immigrants should show some proficiency in it to become a citizen. They have to show knoledge of the Constitution and our common history before they are sworn in.

      • willhen50

        Businesses are only after the profits, whether the customers come from across the street, across the border, or across the ocean the business will target those individuals.

        I hate that! It should be “If you want any language but English, hang up and get an interpreter!” Or at least default to English if something else isn’t chosen. I tried not pressing one and it defaulted to Spanish. I think it was Best Buy but I could be misremembering.

  • chuckie2u

    The Advertisement was pathetic. The multi-Billions Coke has made world wide certainly gives them the opportunity to have a diversity of customers with different traditions and mores from ours. Cokes pandering to the Liberals idea of the destruction of our unity in America with a common language under Liberals vision of European multi-culturism is a little more than I can stomach. Won’t buy Coke anymore.

    So many more choices of soft drinks these days, Coca Cola may need to rethink their outreach ads. I also don’t agree with accommodating illegals by using their language. It seems like aiding and abetting a criminal somehow. Don’t want to equate illegals with criminality, but it seems wrong to abandon American tradition for anyone who lives here. They knew what we were about before they came here. They have some nerve expecting other than “American” treatment.

  • Mary Hajducek

    I am American, born here and raised here, but my great grandparents were not born or basically raised but came to this country of freedom and learned English to be able to assimilate into this country to take advantage of freedom. Now that said, I do not believe that I have to learn another language to work in my own country nor do I believe that all illegal people here are able to collect benefits without producing anything for this country. Look up the requirements for living in Mexico and if you live there you will be required to assimilate into their country. So stop trying to divide our country with your bu*lsh*t and go to where everyone is multicultural and love it there. What people do in their homes regarding language, customs, culture is their business but don’t bring into my world where I don’t want to walk down the street with languages I don’t understand & don’t want to understand are being spoken. this is the United States of America that is a melting pot, but foreigners have to assimilate to this country not vice-versa.

  • Erin Dianne Peña

    Actually, it is extremely socialist (statist and childish) to get angry at someone for speaking a different language. It should make no difference to you, as it truly does not affect you in any way. As a volunteer ESL teacher, I can tell you that most people from non-English speaking backgrounds desperately want to learn English, but if they choose to speak to each other in their mother-tongue it should make no difference to you. If you decided to immigrate to France, for example, you would desperately try and eventually learn French, but to your American friends, or on the phone, you may choose to still communicate in English. And, by the way, as long as you try to speak in French, ppl in France would immediately recognize that you are not a native speaker, and speak back to you in English. Non English speakers may even try harder if they weren’t bullied for having a bad accent, instead of just giving up. If they are happy speaking Spanish, or Vietnamese, that is their choice as a free person to do, and again, it in no way affects you. Grow up. Most of the cultures represented in this ad do in fact learn English before they even come to America, as EVERYONE on an international level recognizes English as the current lingua franca. It is not liberal or socialist to let ppl freely live their lives, it is actually something a libertarian would promote. It is fascist, socialist, immature, and pathetic, to fear and become angered by a language difference.

    • Mark Perez

      Very much respectfully disagree. Nothing wrong with speaking a different language in your family or culture, but to truly understand our government and what the candidates express (which is more than just words) requires everyone to know English. Much is spoken through intonations, facial expressions along with their words that are not translated by a translator. This country is beautiful in that many languages can be spoken, but our government must be one language so EVERYONE gathers the same information – which go far beyond words.

      • Jane18

        You nailed it Mark!

      • Mac Boy

        Yessir !!

    • winki

      I don’t remember anyone telling them they have to give up their native tongue. I wouldn’t expect immigrants to our country to do that any more than I would give up English if I moved to their country. But it is the accepted language of America and needs to be treated as such.

      • Erin Dianne Peña

        No, no response?

      • winki

        I wasn’t here to see your reply to me, so no I didn’t respond to it. I never said these people in the commercial couldn’t speak or understand English. Why accuse me of that? I was talking about speaking English in America in general. It is the accepted language and people who migrate here should learn the language as I would if I migrated to another country with a different language than the one I speak. I wasn’t especially offended by the commercial, but I agree songs about America need to be sung in English. It would have been beautiful if the singers had done that while showing the ad showed the different nationalities who have come to live here.

    • Jane18

      You are not understanding the frustration that we, as English speakers, feel with immigrants, legal and illegal(and not all from Mexico), that do not seem to care to learn to speak or learn the meanings of our language. If I wanted to go to Mexico(which I don’t) I would learn Spainish, or at least enough to get by and to respect the people and their laws…

    • Gary Williams

      You throw out a lot of names and labels there in the end Erin. Typical of what’s hapening today when people choose to defend America from these type of assaults.

    • Erin Dianne Peña

      Of course it would be a bad decision to not learn English (, although, it would still, not affect you in any way). I could care less if ppl choose to not learn English. If they want to make a dumb decision that negatively affects them, that is there problem, not mine. If they want to open a shop and speak Spanish in it, and they want to hire ppl who only speak Spanish, I will shop somewhere else if I need to. Where in this commercial did that ever come up? Where did it imply that they do not actually know English? They were simply speaking something else, that doesn’t mean they do not know English.

      • Flashbk

        You have missed the point Erin. Not saying that lots here have not also missed it but you are part of the problem if you think just by going to another store or crossing the street will fix what is wrong with what is happening to this once great nation. FYI I used the crossing the street to make an example not that your mentioned crossing the street.

      • Mac Boy

        Dream on, LIBBY -

    • John Beam

      That wasn’t the meaning of this commercial. It communicated multiculturalism, which is divisive and is destroying many a country all over the globe. HAD the commercial had people singing TOGETHER from other creeds and cultures as one voice at the end of the song, it would have shown unity, rather than people singing words we cannot understand APART from one-another. Had there been any sense of unity in it, then perhaps I could have understood it as something that had a spirit of American unity. Disembodied voices singing things that I cannot understand, showing images of cultures alien to me does not give that image at all.

      This country has provided sanctuary to many people, and believe that it should continue to do so. IF someone feels the need to “escape” from a country because it is a virtual hell-hole, and they want to come here to live in our wonderful country, and embrace our ways and means, because they believe that the ways and means of free men and women is what made this country great, then I welcome them with open arms. However, if they’ve come here just because they know that the welfare state grant their every whim, and satisfy all who have their hands out, and in the process, create an enclave of their own little corner of Somalia, Pakistan, Columbia, Mexico, or some other place where poverty and degradation reign, in an American community, then they should be sent BACK to where their hearts and minds still reside.

      Bigotry has nothing to do with it. It is all about the survival of our country. Balkanizing us with multiculturalism will destroy us.

    Totally agree!!! Not sure how many times I flipped my fingers at that commercial as it was showing… totally insulting and I’m Hispanic! My grandparents legally moved here from Mexico and learned English. Their children, including my father, learned both languages, but primarily English but spoke Spanish at home with their parents. My father, and all of my uncles and aunts, made it a point not to teach any of their children Spanish and none of us first cousins know Spanish (we weren’t prohibited from learning Spanish either, but no need to learn it… but imperative to know English to succeed).

    The likely harmless touchy-feely intent of the Coke advertisers failed. During this particular time when one party encourages illegals over those following the law (those waiting in line are willing to learn our language and pledge to our country/ illegals have been known to fly the Mexican flag at our schools and are responsible for our having to push 1 for English). Most citizens, including immigrants who learned English, are not comfortable with America the beautiful being sung in anything but English at this time.

    amen, amen, amen. my initial reaction to the commercial was disgust (although the voices were beautiful). there is something to say for tradition, patriotism, and love of country. my LEGAL immigrant friends from Peru and India are proud to be here and speak English as were immigrants from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Those early immigrants didn’t even teach their children to speak the parents’ own native or first language ildren so those children would assimilate into this wonderful, free, and hard-earned country. Too many don’t see the DE-Americanization process. I’m proud of those who saw this commercial as another dose of DE-Americanization–much like maobama’s bowing to the saudi king and apologizing all over the world for America.

      Just Sharing Some Historical Facts.

      To: Obama:

      It
      was you who exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us
      have to pay.

      It
      was you who purposefully omitted – “endowed by our Creator” – from
      your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.

      It
      was you who mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon On The Mount while
      repeatedly referring to the ‘HOLY’ Quran.

      It
      was you who traveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States Of America.

      It
      was you who instantly threw the support of your administration behind the
      building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of
      the World Trade Center.
      It
      was you who refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to
      host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the WH.

      It
      was you who ordered both Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges
      of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast,
      you have NEVER requested that the mosques you have visited adjust their decor.

      It
      was you who appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.

      It
      was you who appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.

      It
      was you who said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to
      Muslim communities.

      It
      was you who as an Illinois Senator were the ONLY individual who would speak in
      favor of infanticide.

      It
      was you who were the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the
      WH, and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the WH tree.

      It
      was you who curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.

      It
      was you who refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic
      terrorist.

      It
      is you who has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women
      throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of
      hypothetical human-rights abuses.

      It
      was you who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of
      radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that
      is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.

      It
      was you who funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.

      It
      was you who ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new
      commemorative stamp.

      It
      was you who directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim community.

      It
      was you who embraced the fanatical Muslim Brotherhood in your quest to
      overthrow the Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak.

      It
      was you who funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar
      schools across our country.

      It
      is you who follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during
      Ramadam.

      It
      is you who departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.

      It
      was you who was un-characteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim
      Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally
      in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led
      slaughter of Egyptian Christians.

      Do we really need to go on?

      Barack, you may be a lot of things; but, for certainty, you are no Christian.

      Obama, who refers to himself as: “A man of Africa”, is precisely the type of ‘divided loyalties” individual that our Founders attempted to prohibit from ascendancy to the presidency when they constructed our Constitution.

It was then when I understood what Coke was trying to say. If they had tried it with the national Anthem it would have been another thing but it was America the Beautiful, and that is translatable in any language!

    • loran

      This is America and I am an American. I am not a Mexican, not a Japanese or a Chinese person. I speak American English and nothing else. Go to another country and they will expect you to speak their language. Been to France or Greece lately? They demand you speak their language. If people want to immigrate to this country, they should do all they can to do it LEGALLY and learn our American English as fast as they can. Look at how much money(millions and millions) is spent on printing all these different language forms for everything from the DMV’s to Voters ballots. This is not bigotry I’m spewing. It’s common sense. Of course liberals will call me every name in the book because I’m not of their mindset. Too fricking bad. Your time is up. We will take back our country.

        actually I have been around the world twice. Every country I visited when I attempted to talk to those people they attempted to understand my broken English and whatever language I attempted to speak of theirs. Whether it was Farsi, French, Arabic, Filipino, Chinese IT MADE NO DIFERENCE, We both tried to understand each other. At no time did Coke make any reference that any of the people were illegal immigrants trying to stay in America, maybe they were Vacationers wanting to see the beauty that is America. You are assuming a lot from, a 30 second commercial.

        Frederick Mullis, You go right on believing what you want , but I have studied the lefts tactics for quite a while now and I know just what they are up to. Even the NFL has gone to the socialists. I’m not tired of it, I’m sick of it. Yes I’m a conservative and proud of it.

        I will continue believing what I KNOW because I have learned it. You have studied the lefts tactics? Where did you study this? What school did you attend?

Even Sean Hannity has said there was nothing wrong with the Commercial. HE is a CONSERVATIVE AS AM I.

      • loran

        Oh come on. Sean Hannity is not the most valid person to represent conservatives. This commercial is done in the name of multiculturalism. That is a mainstay of the left. If you are a conservative, you are just plain wrong about this.

      Frankly we have enough tired and poor. We need PRODUCTIVE! And, you’re missing the point of the article. The commercial is just part of the whole de-Americanizing of everything now. We are sick to death of going places in our own country and not being able to understand people to make purchases, fix things, order things, see things, tour things, etc, etc, etc. The whole point of this country was for people to live free and not be told what to do or believe, but we need to be able to communicate clearly to be able to function successfully. In FL recently to order coffee and a bagel and guy behind counter couldn’t understand what I ordered because he didn’t speak English!… in my OWN COUNTRY! One language…ENGLISH! No exceptions! !

      A melting pot merges all in to ONE, not multicultural and separate parts.

      This is about “assimulating” (i.e., your melting pot) into the culture of the country you live in to show “respect” and appreciation. “America the Beautiful”, the “National Anthem”, the “Pledge of Allegiance”, etc., should only be spoken in English to show respect!
      Try going to Russia, Mexico, China, Iran, etc., and singing THEIR national anthem in “English”! You wouldn’t last long there because you disrespected their country. When in America, don’t insult us or disrespect America – plain and simple.

      • Frederick Mullis

        Its NOT plain OR simple. At no point does the commercial say that anyone is or is not a Citizen. She may have been trying to express to those people in all the other countries just how beautiful AMERICA is? Where is it written that the song has to be sung in English? Its not the National Anthem. It seems to me that if all these people who were pissing and moaning on here about a 30 second commercial, would write their Senators and Congress people and express their feelings about the Budget and other problems we are seeing in Washington, maybe things might not be as bad. When was the last time you wrote your representatives about Benghazi?

    Problem … If you plan on becoming a citizen .. CITIZEN …
    you need to learn the language to be able to fully participate in all this Nation has to offer. Unfortunately, there are too many who are Not Citizens participating in so much, paid entirely by people who are citizens and who have pride in America and being American. They contribute happily to help other citizens who have fallen on hard times. They are very unhappy to see those who come to this country, never having worked a day here or contributing one thin dime and not entitled to any of our largess, being able through Chain immigration to LEGALLY bring in up to 18 of their family members at one time. None of whom ever intend to become citizens. The feeble, infirm, insane,aged all receive SSI, and every other freebie in the world, thanks to the stupid rewriting of an Amendment to our Constitution. If those crossing our border illegally, had a brain they would do it the way of the legals . Couldn’t put that much more of a drain on American Taxpayers than they already are ……,

    English has been the official language of the United States since its inception. I am an irish american but i also realize that declaring that english remain the official language of the United States “en infinitum” is a bit ethnocentrist. After all freedom of speech IS freedom of speech and not a restriction to only speak english here in this land forever. English is the official language spoken to conduct business in our government, schools and private sector, however, to presume that it always HAS TO BE that way is a bit close minded. Close minded seeing that: “Who knows how many centuries lie before us where that reality can and may change?”. Besides, why must we lag behind other developed countries and demand that our north american kids only know one language? This gives them a gross disadvantage compared to the kids of other nations which are normalizing the ideal that their citizens should be fluent in 2, 3 or even 4 languages? Are we underachievers? I still don’t see how speaking in another language offends America. If they said offensive things i would concur but to suggest that speaking any language other than english is “offensive” is a suggestion that english is somehow superior which is ethnocentrism and a stark affront to the first amendment and its amendment of free speech.

      Basically because USA is the leader in most things. Well, we were until this latest apologist pres is taking us down… and fast! We need a new leader to bring us back to the once great nation we used to be and English got us there before and will again. If you do any traveling you will see that English is the spoken language around the world, not just here. In business everywhere English is decided because USA usually runs everything. If not, UK is the other prime people involved. The rest if the countries are usually small potatoes. China is moving up fast though so you better start brushing up on your Mandarin!

Then if it was sung by children wearing clothing of their heritage showing the diversification of America that would have been wonderful.

    Yes, immigrants built this country. They were legal immigrants that respected our immigration laws to become legal citizens first. Many of them learned English before they came to America, and the rest as soon as they could after they arrived. To learn a countries language and customs shows respect for that country. One does not show respect to the country they intend on immigrating to by bringing their culture and language and expecting the host country to accommodate them. Mexicans have not assimilated in the United States. They have brought their language and culture to American and expected Americans to learn both. Pick up any product, in stores across America and you will find it labeled in English and Spanish. Does this sound like assimilation to you? No other ethnic group in America enjoys this privilege. All border states with Mexico spend billions of dollars to teach their children English. If their parents love America so much why didn’t they make sure their children knew English before they came here? Illegal aliens get welfare, food stamps, supplemental security income, aid to families with dependent children, free emergency room hospital care, free public schooling for their children, in state college tuition fund, and pay little or no taxes. The majority of money illegal aliens make is sent back to Mexico, instead of invested in America. The old saying ” that illegal aliens just do jobs Americans will not do” is a lie. They do jobs Americans can not afford to do because we don’t get all the free services that illegals get. American citizens have to pay for everything we get, unlike illegals that get so much for free. This is the real reason illegals will do the same job for less money, leading to more unemployment for American citizens.

    It doesn’t matter where you came from, what are you now? An American. it doesn’t mean to lose your tradition it means you are part of a different culture called American you may enjoy your traditions but as a whole you should sing and speak English period by not doing this you are disrespecting American tradition something you came here for if not they your not a true American, I to I’m Irish but my Family came here many generation ago, My father passed away about a month ago he fought in WW2 and he was very patriotic he loved God and this country he instilled the same in me simple things like putting your hand over your heart, believing in the Constitution. That’s one of the main reason we have Immigration laws and a system to become an American citizen you should know our history and know out process and how it works but none of that is being taught in school much less illegals and the amnesty law will make the problem worse sorry I know off subject, If we just open the borders up and hand out free stuff, and if there isn’t a process this will not be American anymore we will have lost our identity.

  • John Beam

    I’M ignorant? Have you ever read the Federalist Papers, or even the Constitution? The entire foundation of our country is about the individual and their freedom, and I haven’t said ANYTHING that suggests “native born” persons. YOUR comment was about how “multiculturalism” was what our foundation is about, and it ISN’T. You are the idiot here.

    Your stupid “reply” didn’t even try to address what I wrote, and your dismissing me as though I were ignorant expresses more arrogance than anything else. Allow me to re-post what I SAID and then, rather than put words into my mouth, attempt to refute anything about it:

    “IF someone feels the need to “escape” from a country because it is a virtual hell-hole, and they want to come here to live in our wonderful country, and embrace our ways and means, because they believe that the ways and means of free men and women is what made this country great, then I welcome them with open arms. If they’ve come here just because they know that the welfare state grant their every whim, and satisfy all who have their hands out, and in the process, create an enclave of their own little corner of Sudan, Pakistan, Mexico, or some other place where poverty and degradation reign, in an American community, then they should be sent BACK to where their hearts and minds still reside.”

    You are obviously ignorant about history of “multiculturalism,” because its effects are only negative. I’ve mentioned “Balkanization” in my prior post. Do you even have the slightest notion of what that means? Moreover, do you have any idea the deleterious effects of Islam and Shariah upon wide areas of Europe and communities in this country? This ideology is as much an anathema to any notion of American ideals as Mein Kampf. Embracing and integrating such barbaric culture is impossible. One MUST prevail over the other, and at the course we’re going, the misogynistic, bloodthirsty ideology of Islam is on course to become the dominant culture in the entire world.

    The entire focus with our national founding is freedom and a rule of law, as opposed to serfdom and a rule of whim. Anything opposing that culture is sedition. There is NOWHERE in our founding that gives even the slightest notion that anyone can come to our country and do whatever they want in accordance to “their culture.” That is insane. There is nothing “bigoted” about rejecting cultures that are obviously inferior to ours. After all, why else do people come HERE to “escape?” “Economic opportunity?” That isn’t even a reason, because that’s simple justification for theft. The only reason why I’d accept ANYONE to this country is if they are going to contribute positively towards it. If they can join hands with me towards that end, then God bless ‘em. If they just want to come here to steal from us and our posterity, and they have no intention of being a part of this country, then they can go to back to the hell that they came from.

    By the way, a poem written in 1883 by Emma Lazarus didn’t have anything to do with the founding of the United States. Even mentioning it in relation to this silly discussion only expresses your horrendous ignorance. Its engraving and inclusion with the Statue of Liberty (not the statue of immigration) didn’t even occur until 20 years later. Also, Emma Lazarus was a huge proponent for Zionism and the creation of a Jewish State in Palestine. I’d be interested to hear what you think about that bit of information.

    • DrBillLemoine

      You greatly misunderstand. The Constitution replaced ineffective central government under Articles of Confederation. Get it–saw the need for stronger central government. Also, recall the Bill of Rights was not written with the Constitution, but added after citizens, states wanted individual and states rights clarified. Arrogantly you want to personally question peoples’ motives for coming here. It’s none of your business, barring terrorism which the Patriot Act and FISA address. It’s a free country permitting anyone to follow any life style they want, any God, and home life that’s legal; again, none of your business when lawful. If you believe our “focus with our national founding is freedom and a rule of law”, why do radicals oppress voting and civil rights in law, limit women’s healthcare self-determination, and permit unlimited gun usage? Your positions are schizo at best, paranoiac and demented (some charitably say hypocritical) otherwise. Get over yourself–it’s only one vote among a hundred million and you are vastly outnumbered in the tea party, plus republicans are disappearing demographically by the minute.

      • John Beam

        Reasons why people come here certainly IS my business, and if you don’t think so, then you’re insane. Anyone with even the tiniest stake in this country should care what people are coming here for, because our future depends upon it. When someone’s “faith” and culture allows them to mutilate little girls’ vaginas, does that mean that we should allow it here? Community standards matter, and in your nutty world they are sacrificed in favor of third-world immigrant standards.

        Why do radical collectivists like you always set up your silly strawman arguments regarding our “oppress(sing) voting and civil rights in law, limit women’s healthcare self-determination, and permit unlimited gun usage?” How does requiring a picture ID to vote “oppress” anyone? That is like saying that requiring a picture ID for anything is “oppressive.” It is a moronic argument. All you do when you use it is express your wish to justify voter fraud.

        “Limit woman’s healthcare self-determination” is your PC explanation for aborting children under any circumstance, even if they are in the eighth or ninth month of gestation. Is there any notion of “radicalism” within the pro-abortion death crowd? Also, what does it say for your crowd that they wish to force Catholic-operated healthcare centers to perform abortions and hand out “free” contraception, when those things run counter to THEIR first amendment rights? Talk about hypocrisy.

        And permitting “unlimited gun usage?” Really? Who wants that? You listen to the president’s rhetoric and media partisan propagandists too much. You are delusional if you actually believe what you are writing.

        Regarding the constitution, it is clearly set as a rule of law that protects individual rights. Whether the bill of rights came a couple of years later is irrelevant. The way you talk about it, you aren’t much FOR the right of free speech, press, religion, and the rest.

        Regarding demographics, yes, free men and women are being overwhelmed politically by dependent, slave-minded leftist constituents and those who wish to rule over them. What does that matter, except that the United States, as a beacon to the rest of the world as a standard for individual freedom and liberty, is being destroyed in the process? It is terribly obvious to me that while you pretend to be FOR the “rights” and “freedoms” of people, in reality, all you’re for is the destruction of all standards in order that “your side” will win politically. And, as I have said hundreds of times, partisanship (as opposed to citizenship) will be the death of us all.

        BTW, I REALLY want to know what you personally think about Emma Lazarus being a Zionist. That fact must have really stuck in your craw.

      • DrBillLemoine

        Are you an immigration official or diplomat? That would show you REALLY care about immigration–not. You just observe at a distance and draw conclusions from observations and sterotypes. Disqualified to know what other cultures do, think or feel. All must obey our laws, toe our lines.
        Yes, ‘distant observer’, IDs are a burden for millions of Americans akin to Jim Crow laws not long ago. So you are a bigot of sorts; there’s no voter fraud.
        Again, abortion is not your business; it’s a woman’s body and choice with her doctor, not yours to legislate under either the Constitution or Bible. Christians are to mind their own business, not judge others.
        Are you saying school, theater and church massacres are OK when gun regulation stops much carnage? Nonsense, you and NRA;s LaPierre, contrary to most Americans’ will.
        Try again, mal-education one. It’s the Bill of Rights only that protects individual rights and freedoms; and, all are subject to modification as needed.
        Your ‘American destruction by the left’ argument is wacky. Wasn’t it the radical right that shut down government and jeopardized our good credit rating?
        You have pretty well mastered the empty rhetoric of the right–that means no one believes or heeds you, in these pages or on the stump, outvoted at the polls and consistently a minority when polled. Your voice is fading. . .

      • John Beam

        Your an idiot. Nothing matters to you but your party’s power. Partisanship is the only thing that matters to you, and the future is irrelevant. And if my voice fades, it will be because your preferred tyranny will silence me. The very idea that you believe that the bill of rights need to be modified because people have too much control over their own lives tells that you are a hopeless shill for totalitarianism. The elevator does not go to the top with you anymore. You are a mindless minion. I’m not going on with this stupidity with you because all you will do is deny the truth, and fall back on your partisan lies. When someone goes so far to say that we must shackle everyone with government rules and regulations, then there’s no point to go on with “discussion.”

        Yes, your propaganda has trumped real life, and if everyone ignores the lessons of history and real life, because they’d rather listen to the lies of demagogues and political criminals, then you and your ilk will vote for slavery for the rest of us. When political power trumps everything else in life, then be sure that misery will follow. From the look of your picture, you will not live long enough to suffer the consequences of your political irresponsibility. You could care less about the future for the rest of us, because you probably won’t even live past this year. You probably won’t see the collapse of this whole rotting system that you’ve built, because you are at death’s door. But I pray that you DO live long enough to see the collapse of the rotting facade of progressive collectivism. I pray that you live long enough to suffer the consequences of your preferred path of life.

Your rant doesn’t speak to the issue, is abusive to the max like teabaggers generally, and illustrates my points that you extremists can’t carry an argument, deal not with facts and losing the argument resort to volume and pomposity. You are no Christian and carry not the spirit of the great nation you live in. Your rant smacks of the very totalitarianism, lack of compassion and oppression you SAY you oppose, but don’t really. We’ve come a long way babe and won’t let you regressive types kill this nation and its freedoms including immigration.

      • ezekiel22

        I really can’t stand your straw man arguments concerning voter ID. You are smarter than that.
        When you cite individual massacres church, school, theater etc. as reasons for gun control laws that is disingenuous. Make no mistake I could probably plan and carry out deeds just as bloody if no more so even with the laws in total effect. Just enforce the laws as they are.
        The Bill of Rights. Now there is a worldview issue if I ever saw one. Here I thought that it restricted the power of the government. Your view is a lot looser and dangerous.
        As far as the shutdown goes it was the democrats that caused it in the first place.

      • DrBillLemoine

        Citing the Bill of Rights isn’t the same thing as understanding its meaning and wisely applying it to issues.

  • ActualConundrum

    It is offensive. America is supposed to be the melting pot. Real immigrants who came here learned english and assimilated. Diversity is separatism. The liberals want to separate America. Thats why they encourage racism to divide. And multiculturism to divide. They want to destroy America and diversity is the fastest way. If you split America up into different languages and cultures it rips it apart. And makes conquering it easy.

    English is the language of America. Everyone is supposed to be American. Those who come here and are citizens should speak American and be American. Illegal aliens are neither. Children should have to learn english before attending our schools. Not have school resources allowances and exceptions for them, nor supply teachers to speak their language. It is their onus to learn english. And illegal aliens should be sent home or in prison. Not having America make it easy to be here. Sick to death of paying extra for merchandise because of bilingual manuels and packaging. If it is sold in America it should say nothing but english. Illegal foreign people should not be living here why should we make attractive and easy. That is stupid. And non-American muslims should not be allowed in this country. We endanger ourselves enough with those who are citizens.

      Right on! I am also sick and tired of having to press 1 for english. If you can’t speak or understand the national language,then get the hell out. We also need to behead obummer and george soros, freeze their heads, and display them in a museum.

      Good we agree. Now about the president~~~precisely what law was broken? As an administrator, I appreciate timely implementation, due diligence and prioritizing law implementation.

As for representing the mainstream, you are now in a definite minority since well over 50% of this country is against illegal immigration in any poll you care to cite.

      Race and non assimilation are very news worthy. They are what is destroying this country. Formerly, while you were aware of your heritage, you became an American. Now, you bring your country with you and refuse to adopt the culture and laws of the land you step into. We have areas in this country where elected officials are SERIOUSLY talking about parallel systems of justice: English law and Sharia law. If you have two languages and two systems of justice do you have one country?

        America’s culture is shaped by many cultures, which is why it is so innovative and unique

      • Higherstandard13

        Wrong… it is why we have so much crime, people taking advantage of each other, divisiveness, fraud, etc,… Remember the tower of babble and how it was a punishment. People that do no0t have a common language are that much closer to divide.

      • CJeanne

        That’s how America was founded and started…. However that’s now what cultures which come to our country today think. They want to grab money they can get from taxes we pay, they want to enjoy all the businesses and work we put into buildng this country – but they don’t want to “be part of” our great country. Many just want to use it for what they can without contributing to it’s great value – as demonstrate by their uwillingness to assimulate into English as our language, increased crime in our communities, deterioration in many communities in which they settle, and the expection of “special privileges” for them.
        All of that puts an added burden on citizens – when it shouldn’t have to be that way. They need to learn about America and choose to be part of it rather than just sneak in to get what they can, and settle into and create a whole subculture and division.
        Yes, Americans need to be open – but at some point Americans get tired of picking up the pieces and paying for other cultures – even when those cultures are in direct opposition to what our values are….. And then the government goes out of it’s way to support them while penalizing citizens!
        That’s what’s really behind this….

    Extremists and Hate groups speak about dual citizenship, divided loyalties, celebrate diversity and differences over unity for our Nation.

    The ad would have been a winner if all of the diferent peoples sang in English. But since they all sang in their own language, that made it a left-wing propaganda piece.

  • WhiteFalcon

    I object to the add because a muslim was included. The reason I object to that is because it is muslims that are trying to kill us, and it was muslims that killed some 3000 of us in NYC, and the muslim community has been deafeningly silent in condeming the muslims that are trying to kill us, therefore it is reasonable to assume that they support the radical muslims that are doing this. Because of this, I am close to adopting the philosophy that we should simply chase all of them out of the country.

    I am not a liberal democrat but I will say that his wasn’t done to promote left wing anything.( America In any language Is Still America.) This country is made of different cultures. When Coke did the ” Teach The World To Sing”, commercial they nailed it. This was just an attempt to do It again. It isn’t bad. It just hit nerve in people who are anti- Immigration and pro- Speak English. This is not political. It is salesmanship 101.

        Yes Barry They did sing in English in that song. In this song the words’ America the Beautiful’ are clearly understood . I know it is a personal issue with those who dislike what I said above and say now. The fact is that narrow minded attitude is not common sense. Some one in advertising at that Coke company thought it would sell merchandise. That is all here is to this. Enough said. The word has many more real issues and problems to think about.

      • runnindeer

        Barry, with all due respect- and I do respect everyone here who has an opinion on the subject of this commercial, this is not about other countries, That Is what makes America an exceptional home for all of us. Our differences . We are America the beautiful. Land of the free and the home of the Brave.
        I do not pretend to have supernatural access to the minds of those people who sold this commercial to the Coca Cola company executives. I personally am not offend by the commercial because I don’t look at it with offence in my mind or anger and fear in my heart . No pre- conceived attitude . The artist could have had that idea of amnesty in mind? Or Not? Or could have simply hoped to sell their idea and a product.

    • Oldmonkey

      Hitting a nerve is an understatement. America welcomes one million LEGAL immigrants yearly, and doesn’t do squat to assimilate them? I can understand those who come older with resources to pay their way who don’t speak English with kids to help them, but it’s a mean life when they get really old.

      Illegals are a different issue; they squat, and for the most part, abused by their own to gain advantage against competition. Our politicians need to be run out of town on a rail

    • Sunshine Kid

      Try immigrating to a country like Russia and not learn their language. Just because the USA doesn’t have an OFFICIAL language, it DOES have a DEFACTO language that all laws are written in, almost all road directions are written in, almost all education is done in, and almost all public debate is done in. And that DEFACTO language is English. The liberals are simply trying to divide the nation by culture, skin color and anything else they can use so that they can take over. If you don’t know the rules of war, DIVIDE AND CONQUER is a very basic concept. Learn it or be defeated by it.

    Ridiculous. The song has nothing to do with employment, wages, or politics. It is just a song about the beauty of America and it is being sung in many beautiful languages. Who is to say that those people don’t ALSO SPEAK ENGLISH??? Most of the rest of the world does, you know – speak their native tongue AND ENGLISH. We silly Americans are the only ones who would make that wrong assumption because we usually don’t learn another language very well. I am disgusted by the hateful attitudes of people.

      • BananaBot

        The intelligence of Americans astounds me

    • Oldmonkey

      Though I wasn’t offended, I can certainly see how others were. Especially Americans with substantial ancestry in the U.S. now treated like second class citizens by politicians. It isn’t their responsibility to learn or adapt to another language and culture unless they marry into an immigrant family, it is on the immigrant to assimilate. In addition, it’s the immigrant’s responsibility to share the best of where they came from if asked.

      Any idiot who whines about cultural hegemony can shovel it to where the son don’t shine. When anyone chooses to live in another country, including Americans they should demonstrate good manners and adapt.

      I became bilingual as a family responsibility at 36 when I married. I know what it is like to help those I love translating for them at the doctors office, arranging home repairs, and helping with their finances. With time as they continued to age it got worse, with neighbors they smile at their age they can’t communicate with. Almost 90 the one parent my wife and I share needs constant attention. This places additional difficulty finding caregivers who speak Chinese.

      If given one wish, it would be a family member in perpituity for every do gooder who can’t mind their own businesses, but seems to manage the businesses of, and requirements for others.

      I repeatedly embarrass Latinas trying to lecture me about helping my inlaws with their business. Catching their accent, saying in pejorative “my inlaws don’t speak English; a situation I can tell you know about” always shuts their mouth. Illegals expect me to speak Spanish then glare at me speaking Chinese in front of them?

      By the way, they really ARE talking about you

      • Sunshine Kid

      • Oldmonkey

        I have one proved ancestor who mustered out of the Continental Army, and likely could find more. Other than my wife’s family, most recent immigrant were my great grandparents who left Paris in 1880s. It is possible possible Friedrick Bastiat is a distant relative.

        Are
        you a child, socialist or leftist anti-American parasite? This multiculturalism is crap that has been spread over the last few decades by anti-American haters whom benefit by splitting the people. It is called assimilation and that is what people were supposed to do. Bringing the ways of the country they fled that undermines what has made this country successful is insane. Why should I care about a neighbor that has nothing in common with me and demands I change because they came here?

        If you had half a brain you would know there are key things that help a country
        succeed and bind its people and this multiculturalism is not one of them. Have you ever heard of the tower of babble? People that come here should have loyalty to one country, the US and none other. It is this same crap of dual citizenship.

        And to show you are not a bigot then, you should insist that all companies having
        languages other than English posted should have to post all languages. If they
        don’t they must be a hater.

      • RETROBOB

        You should read the quote by Theodore Roosevelt. Just as true now as then;

        “In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant
        who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates
        himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with
        everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any
        such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is
        predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an
        American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided
        allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but
        something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for
        but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one
        language here, and that is the English language… and we have
        room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the
        American people.”

  • Jim Schafer

    where did Coca-Cola begin, anyhow?

    • lilolady

      A hundred or so years ago. Actually contained cocaine. Even in the 1950s you could buy Coke Syrup from the pharmacy and take by the teaspoon for an upset tummy. You can do a search and get all the information you could ever want. Way back in those days mothers gave their babies Laudinum (sp) for colicky babies and worked pretty good on PMS, I am told. And that stuff that Arthur Conan Doyle over-dosed on was widely used as well. I want to say Abysinthe (sp). I know he smoked opium. Oops, or was that Poe? Advice: Don’t ever get old!

Pepsi has done about the same thing now, they have a new can with the pledge of allegiance on it but they refuse to include the words, “Under God” in it, they say they didn’t want to offend anyone, so lets no offend Pepsi either, we just won’t buy it any longer. They don’t give a crap about offending US who are their best customers in this country. These companies have all forgot where most of their dollars come from, the Americans who built the company to what it is today, they don’t mind offending the American people here. Well I guess, the hell with them if they want to play that game now, because we can play to, only we can hurt them more than they hurt or offend us.

      I drink RC. It is cheaper around here and it is just as good, if not better, than Coke or Pepsi, which USED to be my favorite drink.

    • sky2cruiser

      Paul, are you serious? They left out the words, “under God” because they didn’t want to offend anyone? Really?!? Who is it they didn’t want to offend? Who is it they couldn’t care less about? They’re not only offensive, they aren’t very bright.

      • Paul Brown

        Get a brain will you…..you demoncrap!!!!!!!!!

    Stop threatening to boycott Coca-Cola. Please. I’m begging every Conservative here. It makes you look stupid.

    Because we all know you’re not serious about it.

    Boycotting is stupid. Do any of you talking about boycotting Coke have any idea to what you’re committing yourself? It’s not just Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola has its fingers in everything. Food, entertainment, hospitality – they’re partnered all over the place.

    McDonalds. Wendy’s. Burger King. Subway. Hope you don’t like any of them, because spending money there sends money to Coke – regardless of whether you buy one.

    Darden Restaurant Group. That’s your Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, Red Lobster. Been partnered with Coke for years. Willing to give up your outings to any of them? Also, Chili’s, Chipotle, Fridays, and Red Robin.

    Pizza too. Papa Johns and Dominoes. They all team with Coca-Cola.

    This might be frustrating for Conservatives in particular: Chick-Fil-A. Support them for their standing up for religious freedom and fighting off President Downgrade’s insanity, or boycott them because every dollar you spend there sends a few cents to Coca-Cola? Decisions decisions.

    And it’s not just food. Hotels (particularly chains) often partner with Coca-Cola and contract to exclusively serve Coke products in their restaurants and mini-bar.

    Same goes for amusement parks, movie theaters, sports stadiums, and other entertainment venues.

    Most bars usually pair with one or the other – Coke, more often. Because Rum and Coke; Jack and Coke; Crown and Coke are staples of the liquor industry (and we all know it just ain’t the same with Pepsi).

    Who here is REALLY going to give all of that up, over a stupid commercial?

    Promising to boycott Coke is an empty gesture. Huff and puff and we’re so mad and offended that we’re going to say stuff we don’t REALLY mean! It’s silly. What’s the point of lashing out at Coke with some empty gesture. They’re mad and offended. I get it. Sure. But this is stupid. I mean, really – when’s the last time a major corporation went belly up because of a protest over their poor advertising decisions?

    It’s silly. If you have a real problem with this because of its immigration-related implications – then GO FIGHT THE REAL FIGHT. It’s in Congress, and it’s called the GOP Immigration Plan. Or, to paraphrase Ted Cruz, the Harry Reid Senate Majority Leader Re-Election Plan. Or, to paraphrase Ann Coulter, the GOP Suicide Pact.

    (What in the hell are the Republicans thinking?)

    Jesus. This is why I hate Conservatives. Liberals are, almost unilaterally, stupid and/or evil. But Conservatives just can’t ever keep their friggin’ eye on the ball. I swear, they’re two sides to the same coin when it comes it irrational, emotional, knee-jerk, reflexive reaction.

    It’s like the saying, “A person is smart. People are dumb, dangerous animals.” So is true for Conservatism. The worst part about it are the average Conservatives.

    Don’t be stupid. Don’t whine about Coca-Cola because you’re reflexively angry and feel the need to lash out blindly. That’s what liberals do. You love Coca-Cola. I love Coca-Cola. It’s delicious.

    Fight the real fight.

      The companies that partner with Coca-Cola may opt to switch to another soft drink. As for being stupid, your support for a company that has again shot itself needs a good re-evaluation of your moral support for the USA. You want diversity? Different languages is diversity, and try to speak English in Arabia. If you are not a tourist, you can forget it. Same in MOST countries. The USA is falling apart because of idiots like yourself, who say “don’t rock the boat”, and your first line asking us not to boycott your brand, and your second line denouncing us as insincere, is as divisive as any liberal fool going.

      Drink your Koolade, spiked with your Coke, but don’t call us stupid.

      • AT

        I didn’t say “don’t rock the boat.” In fact, I said the complete opposite. Rock the boat! Rock it hard. Just rock the RIGHT boat. Rock the boat that MATTERS.

        I also didn’t call you (or anyone else) stupid. I said that this reflexive backlash makes Conservatives LOOK stupid. Because it’s a stupid reaction.

        Similarly, I don’t give a flip about diversity or who speaks what in what country. I simply don’t care. All I’m saying is, if THIS non-issue is your current ragefest – you need to re-evaluate your priorities. Because this kind of idiocy harms Conservatism.

        All I said was: spare us the insincere gesture of “boycotting Coke” when the reality is that it can’t be done without boycotting a whole slew of things that I guaran-dang-tee the average person isn’t going to actually boycott. We enjoy the thousands of Coke-partners too much. And when we support them, we support Coca-Cola as vendor to them. It’s that simple. Even if you don’t order a Coca-Cola product. At the end of the day, it’s all profit and overhead. Part of what you contributed to their profit goes to pay the overhead of serving Coca-Cola.

        You are correct – the companies that partner may elect to switch. Forgive me if I don’t hold my breath. And, fantasize as one may about the effect of boycotting – ain’t nobody short of a personally pissed-off CEO going to cancel contracts with Coca-Cola because whiny Conservatives whining about a whiny subject.

        Redirect your efforts. Redirect them where they count: Congress.

      • Dennis

        I hate to be petty but you DID say Conservatives were stupid. Not “look” stupid but just plain straight out stupid.

        I, for one, was deeply hurt by your comments and plan to bury my face in my pillow crying myself to sleep tonight. I would go for a stiff drink right now but I’m unsure which brand is not on the boycott lists. Can somebody put together a comprehensive list of the products and commodities we’re not supposed to buy or services to use???

        I lost track a while ago.

      • AT

        No, you don’t hate to be petty. That’s precisely why you pointed it out. So, go ahead and quote it. Tell me where I’m calling Conservatives stupid, outside of doing something particularly stupid.

        I’m sorry that you’re hurt and crying yourself to sleep. In no way do I want to make Conservatives feel hurt by standing for their principles. Perhaps (one can hope) this will serve as a learning experience in how to respond rationally to something that upsets you, rather than responding emotionally and reflexively in a way that makes no sense.

        (As for the brand on your boycott lists – well, they’re YOUR boycotts. Apparently. I would hope you know who and what you’re ACTUALLY boycotting and why. Otherwise, like I said, it comes off as stupid and insincere. “I refuse to buy a Coke” doesn’t really jive when you go to a venue that pays Coke as a vendor. Just sayin’.)

      • Sunshine Kid

        Congress has developed a track record lately of ignoring the voice of the people. But that doesn’t mean that anyone should shut up; it means that people need a good two by four to get their attention before you start instructing them on REPRESENTING you.

    What a crock. What is America? A free nation of people who migrated here, in most instances to escape oppression. Many people, from many countries. What could be MORE American, than standing WITH each other, singing a song of praise of our Great country, in their native language. Aren’t we the people who believe one Americans language, is as good our own??? I prefer PEPSI COLA, to Coke, but Coke did a good thing here. Critics sound as prejudiced as Stephanie Cutter, Obama’s “HIT WOMAN”.

    If the continent of Africa is so great WHY are the people constantly warring, murdering, raping, starving?

  • Billy Bob Johnson

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with the Coke ad. This is America, the land of free speech. The ad only illustrates how diverse we are and all can hear the “America” song in their own language to demonstrate that. I think it was a great ad. When I saw the ad, I knew right away that the right wing extremists would object. It seems they have a problem with lot of America and now the first amendment.

  • መሪሃዊ

    It is not saying that they do not know or embrace English, it is using their second languages to highlight the beautiful multicultural mix that is America. English is the world language, needed to function in the constantly interconnected international community, as well as be successful in America, but that does not mean that you cannot embrace your ancestral languages in a beautiful stand for what makes America such a powerful and successful country; its embracing of all peoples who want a better life.

    • gw111

      The article makes the point that America has been a country of one language for most of its existence. Now we seem to want immigrants to come here and not immerge their self in the English language. Not doing so hurts the immigrant, Would it not been just as beautiful to have little children singing America the beautiful with perhaps an accent in their native language. Don’t mistake my comment for saying English is the best language, it just happens to be our language. I am not sure the commercial was trying to say come here and speak your own language, but from the comments that support coke it seems people are cool with making this country a multi language country. Europe which could easily be a melting pot like us has nothing but trouble forming a union and much has to do with the language barriers,

Has China made you sing about China here on US soil? NO, and they N E V E R will.
    Praise to the Coca Cola Company, proud to be American!

    • sunnyblues

      You are missing the point. This was the Super Bowl, an American Football Game! When I heard the ad, I immediately muted it for the same reason mentioned in this article. We are tired of the bull crap progressives pass along as politically correct when it is really devaluing and diluting what America has ALWAYS stood for. We are people from many backgrounds and nations who upon stepping on American soil, made the choice to become Americans. Until, of course, our government turned a blind eye to millions upon millions who illegally sneak across our borders to seek a better way of life and reap as many “freebies” as they can get on the tax payers tab. Who refuse to learn our language or celebrate our holidays or acclimate to becoming an American. We resent those who take and take while expecting this country to ignore their lawlessness and hand them citizenship on a silver platter all the while clinging to their native culture and thumbing their noses at us. Would China or any other country be stupid enough to allow their borders to remain open in times such as these so anybody and everybody can sneak on over? Would they allow those illegals to speak their own language and ignore the laws of their land? NO, NEVER. And I don’t care where Coke is sold. This is America. Speak English.

      • Carol

        I completely and totally agree with you. But again the point is they were singing about America on their countries soil and not ours.

      • hrwolfe

        How do you know it was on their own soil? Somebody referenced a blog that said some of them had to learn their native language to sing it. Again what does the rest of the world have to do with the Super Bowel somebody needs to start offering Americans something other than grief.

      • Dennis

        Actually my experience around the world has been that ordinary people in other countries love, cherish and admire America. Most of the rhetoric about our supposedly tarnished reputation is false propaganda (except in many Islamic nations) that is meant to outrage us. It is apparently working.

      I am sure there were lots of people from China watching the super bowl.
      The French live right in the middle of countries speaking several languages. The government there insist in keeping their language pure. My grand children go to school there and take bilingual education, but they are not taking it to maintain their first language but rather as a language course. America should be pushing English. Like the author of the article said, the looser in not learning English is the immigrant. Now I wasn’t offended by coke, but I think, there has been a belief that everyone needs to be educated in their own language. The best education anyone can get is first to be able to communicate in the local language. It sounds good to say we need to help every child by speaking their language, but the result is a country where the immigrant can’t become a part of the American culture, (or French, Italian or Russian won’t adjust top that culture as quickly). My girlfriends father who is 87 now said when he came to this country his parents would not even let them speak anything but English. (except to grandma because that was all she knew) he said his parents only spoke Italian, but they used their kids to teach them. Funny thing is they still have much of their Italian culture. All meals are eaten together, and pasta is often the main course. And they all dress better than most Americans, especially the shoes. They love calling them selves Italian, but they are Americans first. Now to my point. If offence was taken it was at making children think that speaking their native language will help them become a part of the American culture. It sounds good but the result isn’t. Canada has two cultures living under one government. Which is better? Neither! it is, a hindrance to running the nation. The Canadians are a strong people and they have dealt with this. I think at this point you can’t change it. However, if it is possible to make the playing field level we should first consider the greatest skill any one of us has and that is communicating.

      Carol, Its a loosing battle, you cannot have a battle of the wits with someone who has no ammunition. They cannot accept that America is beautiful in any language.

I would be willing to bet that the majority of them have no idea the significance of the phrase “give me your tired, your hungry, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free” or even where it is. Such is the case of our liberal education system.

      • Archangel

        Fred, you are missing the bigger point…

        First let me preface….I was NOT terribly “offended” by the Coca Cola commercial because generally speaking:

        1. I am thick skinned and

        2. Only liberals get their panties in a ruffle LOL.

        That said…..While I agree with your last sentence, I have been to Ellis Island and very aware of my own Euro ancestry.

        As I stated, You are missing the bigger point…..

        This commercial (to many conservative folks) screams out a message that WE AMERICANS need to EMBRACE “multiculturalism”, which is the antithesis of Assimilation.

        Assimilation UNIFIES people to accept the AMERICAN CULTURE….not keep us DIVIDED by differentiating us

        Those that came thru Ellis Island EMBRACED the AMERICAN CULTURE…EMBRACED THE LANGUAGE…EMBRACED THE FLAG and Proudly displayed it. They still kept their native traditions, but the AMERICAN CULTURE was ACCEPTED and EMBRACED

        Today, immigrants fly flags of their native third world country over their home and business, burn our American flag in the streets, defiantly refuse to learn English and will only speak their own language and NEVER Assimilate into our culture (and in many cases ignore our laws too)

        To those……I SAY DEPORT THEIR ASSES

        Think about this critically….

        If I am 1/2 Korean, and my ancestors came over in 1900, why am I STILL CALLED AN “ASIAN AMERICAN” even if I never (in my lifetime), stepped foot anywhere in Asia ????

        If I have Black skin, and my ancestors came over from Africa in 1810, Why am I STILL CALLED AN “AFRICAN AMERICAN” even if I have never stepped foot on the continent of Africa??

        IF I am of Mexican Descent and the last FIVE generations of my family lived in Arizona or Texas, WHY am I still called a Mexican-American?

        CONVERSELY, (but on the same line of thought,) If I am White Skinned and my Ancestors came over from Europe in the early 1900s, WHY am I NOT called a “European” American?

        Wouldn’t it be best if we all just accepted one another as “AMERICANS”, and UNIFIED??? Multiculturism is a constant reminder which EMPHASIZES our differences…It only serves to divide and typically promotes racism.

        The Coca Cola commercial was a piece of marketing that DIVIDES MANY AMERICANS based on political beliefs.

        However,The Budweiser commercial was an example of GOOD marketing that UNIFIES ALL AMERICANS….how could you not feel good about Budweiser?

        Got it??

      • Frederick Mullis

        No I am not missing anything everyone else is. The Point is that its a 30 second commercial. nothing more nothing less. paid for by a company. If the “conservatives who have been weeping and wailing and gnashing their teeth here about a silly commercial, would point that energy toward going too tea party meetings or better yet writing their Congress representatives and expressing their feelings and voting in all elections. maybe things would not be as bad in Washington as they are.. .

      • Archangel

        Sorry, but I disagree Fred. I feel you ARE missing the point.

        Answer this question:

        Are we AMERICANS (of a diverse foreign descent), or are we just a collection of foreigners living in America?

        Many people feel this commercial is a slap to the faces of their ancestors who came here, and endured many challenges; living somewhere in a whole new country,unfamiliar with it’s geography, in many cases leaving behind extended family and not knowing a soul, learning a whole new culture and on top of that, were forced to quickly learn English and assimilate. This is ALSO the reason why people would slightly alter the spelling of their names…so that it wasn’t a dead giveaway of their nationality.

        I agree with these people.

        That said, don’t misunderstand my view.

        I firmly believe that having a diverse culture is a strength in America, I hold
        the conservative value that we need to form an AMERICAN
        CULTURE.

        This can only be accomplished by ASSIMILATION into this AMERICAN CULTURE, where we codify a national language, codify a unified rule of law (no Shariah Law), and codify a culture which is unique to the United States. There is NO DEVIATION from this once codified.
        Most importantly, Accepting our national language is a critical part of the assimilation..

        So…..If Coke finds it acceptable to sing our treasured America the Beautiful in 7 different languages, WHY DOESN’T COKE PRINT THEIR PRODUCT LABELS in 7 different languages or 200 different languages to cater to every nationality???

        (Of course I am speaking for COKE PRODUCTS SOLD IN THE USA)

        Answer: because in the USA, the official language is ENGLISH.
        (Maybe the Graphic Design label folks, didn’t get the memo from the TV Marketing group down there in Atlanta?)

        Bottomline, Marketing messages are ALWAYS intentional. The intent of the Coca Cola advertisement was to make a POLITICAL statement about “cultural inclusiveness” and acceptance of Multiculturalism

        This commercial is in your face.If you don’t like it OR if you’re offended by it, then likely, you will be labeled as a racist.

        However If you DO like it, then you’re FOR multiculturalism. You’re FOR “progress”
        (I also find the timing of the ad to be a bit “suspect” too, especially since the Amnesty/Immigration issue is currently on the table)

        Conservatives see this as PURE POLITICAL BULLCRAP. Its obvious intent is to DIVIDE US
        (I don’t know about you, but I have never seen our nation more divided in my lifetime and I am in my mid forties)

        And if you haven’t been watching……Every leader of the European Union that have embraced multiculturalism over the years, is now warning America (and the rest of the world), that multiculturalism doesn’t work. It only serves to divide.

      • Frederick Mullis

        Let me point out that for once in a long time. many conservative and liberal minded people have come together to raise hell at a common foe.. COKE because opf something they both see as un-American Imagine that. Not all conservatives and liberals mind you because I am a conservative a very strong conservative member of the tea party. But I am a realist and I don’t goo off the deep end because of a silly assed commercial. when he have a socialist sitting in the white house .doing away with the Congress more and more every day and abusing his power. You are assuming a lot and you are dead wrong I am NOT for Multiculturalism, and the only Progress I wanna see is getting Obama and his cabinet and most of the Congress thrown out of Washington. I know what is happening in other countries, I have stood on their streets and seen it for myself. Not only does multiculturalism not work but Socialism does not work either and THAT is our biggest problem at the moment!

      • Archangel

        LOL..Well, WE are pretty much on the same page in our set of beliefs and I agree with everything you have said here with a small caveat.

        YES…We do have some alert Democrats (and Liberals….I define them differently) who are finally waking up….

        We also have more conservatives and Republicans who are no longer living in denial.

        Our “solutions” are still very much different, but at least we agree on the fact that a lot of these “Changes” aren’t so great. I think Obamacare has been a big wake up call.

        But in my opinion, we have a very long way to go, and as long as the dependent class is fed, sheltered and essentially “paid” to remain complacent, we still have a big problem. These people will continue to continue to sit in front of the tube, eat their Cheetos, and believe that Obama has their back.

        That said…..YES: we have MUCH bigger problems than this Coke commercial….and everything you mentioned is spot on.

        As I mentioned in the very first exchange….”I wasn’t terribly offended by the commercial”….but I was somewhat offended., and here is WHY:

        I believe that we MUST remain ever-vigilant with EVERY SINGLE ATTEMPT to move us closer to our own destruction.

        If you think critically at what is going on…whether it is the destruction of the family unit…Gun Control, drugs, welfare, allowing the President to violate the Constitution on a few “small issues” like the dates of when Obamacare Mandates begin….ALL of these things ADD UP over time.

        It is CLEAR, that “the enemy” the “Progressive Agenda” uses a”boil-the-frog” strategy…turning up the temperature one degree at a time so that the frog doesn’t notice. Eventually the frog dies.

        Our liberties are being snatched up a little at a time….So small, most of the time it goes unnoticed.
        Since 9-11 we have been exchanging “Safety and Security” in exchange for Freedom (TSA, Dept of Homeland Security, NSA spying, Patriot Act, ….need I say more?)

        How many people do you think are aware of NDAA? And the Indefinite Detention of American Citizens? I’d be surprised if more than 5% of Americans are even aware of this law.

        As Thomas Jefferson said “The Price of Freedom is ETERNAL Vigilance”

        I see this commercial as yet one more attack, and it must be addressed.SWIFTLY.

        If you are not already aware, there is a petition to Coke.
        Those who are outraged and signed the petition are demanding a public apology and a retraction of the commercial..

        We are starting to fight back on many fronts. But it is a slow process because of complacency. However, I can’t fault people for doing what they think is right.

        Another reason why I am a bit offended has to do with my family and a long history of military service. For 4 generations in my family, every man has enlisted for military service. I am also one to fly the US Flag on my house, 365 days a year.

        So while I agree with you, I look at this issue is that we must be eternally vigilant, and fight back at EVERY single liberal attempt to move us towards destruction, or in THEIR MINDS, “Progress”.

    • Diane

      Carol I love that people come here form all over the world to find freedom or wealth or what ever but singing a song about America in their language and telling me its okay is like WHY did you come here if you want the same here as you had in your country? We are Americans we speak English sing the damm song about America in English.

  • Barbara Johnson

    I’ve been buying Dr. Pepper (a coke product) but will no longer buy it.

    • Frederick Mullis

      Dr. Pepper is a Pepsi product

      • Barbara Johnson

        No, it’s not. On the can it says: Canned by a member of the Coca-cola bottler’s Association.

      • Frederick Mullis

        Many Pepsi products are canned at Coke canning plants because Coke has more plants than Pepsi does in many parts of the Country but Dr. Pepper is still a Pepsi product.

      • Barbara Johnson

        Ok, I did a google search to find out and what I found was that

        Dr Pepper is a brand within the Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPSG).

      • Dennis

        Barb, mine says “Bottled Under the Authority Of Dr. Pepper Company”. Copyright 2014 Dr. Pepper/Seven Up, Inc.
        But I find it in all the Pepsi-contracted soda fountains such as those found at the Golden Trough…uh, I meant The Golden Corral.

        But wait a minute…isn’t Dr. Pepper also sold at McDonalds alongside of their Coke?

      • Barbara Johnson

        So, it appears that Dr. Pepper can’t make up it’s mind who makes it? lol I like Golden Corral, too.

      • Dennis

        To Barb Johnson:

        Negative, not anymore. Dr Pepper is sold by Pepsi. I appreciate that because I will drink (tolerate) Dr. Pepper at places where Pepsi products are offered. I prefer Coke over Pepsi purely as a matter of discriminating taste.

  • hrwolfe

    Coke would have been correct to show the same commercial but with the various individuals singing in english to show E Pluribus Unum, the various languages at the Super Bowl was not in good taste. It’s like what Dr, Zuhdi Jasser said about the Ground Zero Mosque, This is hallowed ground to the American people, not the place to show your a good Muslim. Coke’s PR department is probably filled with mulitcultural tochy-feely folks as well as they are a world wide market, it behooves them to tow this line but it is at the expense of those of us who see our National Culture and heritage heading out the door. To call everybody racist or anti immagrint because they felt slight by this add is just flat wrong and shows no understanding of your Countrymen. To those that are reduced to saying Forigners go home your not using your best argument either. Coke used bad judgement, Americans are getting tired of being slammed down about everything in this world while are sons and daughters are defending it.

  • pearl87

    One more thing for me to boycott! I am getting very good at this and saving TONS of money on overpriced products. Now don’t tell me Coca Cola didn’t know they were being offensive. If they can tell Americans “We don’t care if you’re offended – get over it and give us your money”, then the least Americans should say in return is “Shove your overpriced sugar water, we’ll take our cola straight up with a twist of independent thinking.” Let’s all try to find ways to support America with our purchasing habits.

    • Dennis

      Maybe we can boycott the whole world and catch the next shuttle outta here?

    I am so sick and tired of xenophobia being confused with American conservative values.

    “America the Beautiful” is true no matter what language you say it in.

    Les belles de l’Amérique
    Η Αμερική ο όμορφος
    אמריקה היפה
    अमेरिका सुंदर
    Amerikában a Beautiful
    La bella America
    アメリカの美

    미국의 아름 다운
    Amerika det vakre
    Америка, красивые
    Amerika den vackra
    อเมริกาที่สวยงาม

    And if you can’t get with that, take a hike down the road where hate is OK, because it isn’t allowed here.

    • Carol

      Very well said!

    • Dennis

      Uh, what are all those words after the second line of your comment? You must not have your spell check enabled, huh?

    • Archangel

      You are missing the whole point. It isn’t xenophobia. It is about Assimilation versus Multiculturalism

      WHY Doesn’t Coca Cola Print their product Labels in 10 different Languages (for products intended to be sold in the USA??)

      Guess what? They are ONLY printed in English

      The most recent advertisement screams, “WE MUST BE TOLERANT TO MULTICULTURALISM, (The Antithesis of ASSIMILATION).

      EVER SEEN THE LATIN PHRASE ON OUR MONEY, “E.PLURIBUS UNUM?”
      Means “From Many, One”.

      ASSIMILATION RESULTS IN UNIFICATION OF ONE CULTURE….

      MULTICULTURALISM MEANS WE NEVER UNIFY…BECAUSE WE CONTINUE TO DIFFERENTIATE PEOPLE, BASED ON THEIR RACE OR ETHNICITY.

      Those European Descendants who immigrated thru Ellis Island during the turn of the century were PROUD to EMBRACE our Language our AMERICAN CULTURE, PROUD to Display and RESPECT our FLAG, and even though they had their traditions and roots, the WANTED To be AMERICANS.

      So if I am 1/2 Korean, and my ancestors came over in 1900, why am I STILL CALLED AN “ASIAN AMERICAN” even if I never stepped foot in Korea????

      If I have Black skin, and my ancestors came over from Africa in 1810, Why am I STILL CALLED AN “AFRICAN AMERICAN”??

      By the same line of thought, If I am White Skinned and my Ancestors came over from Europe in the early 1900s, WHY am I NOT CALLED a “European” American?

  • gw111

    Many are quick to label the USA as racist and bigoted, but fail to realize we are by far the most integrated country in the world. We will send the most diversified Olympic team to Socci. Our armed forces are white Chinese Hispanic and Black. Many of our large cities have minority Mayors and both parties go out of their way to court the minority vote. Some of the loudest voices for the Tea Party have been minorities, Rubio, Cruz, Herman Cain, Colonel West. (am not a member of the Tea Party, using them as an example because they have been call racist by so many) None of them would have accomplished as much if they hadn’t mastered the English language. (in face it is amazing to hear these men speak because they seem to speak it better then most. And I know Rubio is bilingual.) There are more black millionaires in USA then all of Africa. And not one of them is a war lord!

    • Dennis

      Roy,
      Most of the world’s Western countries are being overrun by immigrants just like here. They also are facing resistance from those immigrants to tolerate, adopt and learn to appreciate their language and culture as we are. We aren’t the first nor the worst with this problem (although it might seem otherwise) and those countries’ citizens are burdened with a rapidly expanding welfare base taxing their economies.

  • homer1057

    DON’T people know that the language of the world is “ENGLISH” ? the world speaks English as a first or second alnguage! So…speak English or go to a place where they speak your language or shut up!

    • Dennis

      Homer, where have you been in the world where English was first language other than Australia or Britain and former British colonies part of that empire? Most nations I have visited had their own language as a primary language. Many countries have citizens that believe in being versed in additional languages to make traveling and interacting with one-language Americans easier. Unfortunately many Americans do not see the profit in this practice. We mostly speak English (poorly) and don’t see an advantage to a broader life experience. English is not the world’s language nor the world’s most effective language. It is more widespread maybe than any other but there are more people on this planet that can’t speak English than those who do. Just think of all the natural born Americans that you might know who purposely mispronounce and misuse English. Not a big argument to convince others to bother learning American English, is it? My wife is a Euro-American who knows 5 languages (including English which was #3) while I am only fluent in English currently but working on two others.

  • agbjr

    Repeating a post made a day ago …

    The concept was good however the end-product was lousy! What could have been an excellent presentation of the make-up of America came off as a half-baked left-leaning political statement. The commercial should have segued from the many individual foreign languages of the individual
    immigrants into all of them standing together and singing together … in English … each holding a small US Flag … superimposed over this scene the Latin words of our National Motto: E PLURIBUS UNUM. (From many, one).

    Coca Cola should fire their advertising agency.

  • MortarMan107

    I wonder how soon it will be before Coke joins GE and GM in China? Maybe they could call themselves GC.

    I wonder too just how many people understood what Nixon did in “opening” China and the monumental damage Billy Blue Dress and others did with NAFTA, GATT and all of the trade agreements that gave away the country?

    That Giant Sucking Sound that Liberals scoffed at is now a ROARING SUCKING SOUND and they’re still DEAF to it.

    Will the last American job leaving the country please shut off the last 60 watt incandescent light bulb?

    I once just loved a cold Coke over a bit of ice on a hot muggy day. Nothing better. But I’ve found out that Shasta ain’t that bad. Adios Coke.

    • Frederick Mullis

      I have enjoyed Cokes in countries all over the world. Coca Cola, which has its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, claims to have its product in more than 200 countries. It is believed that there are only three countries that do not currently sell Coca Cola for one reason or another. Those countries that do not sell the Coca Cola brand are North Korea, Cuba, and Myanmar, So you see They are already in Chine and have been there for a long while. I drank a Coke in Hong Kong back in 1976.

      • MortarMan107

        That’s not what I meant. GE has been and GM will be moving assets to China to begin manufacturing IN China. Just wondered when Coke will be rolling off Chinese shipping docks.

        I find it difficult to find ANYTHING that has a “Made in the USA” label on it any more and I LOOK.

        Oh, just FYI, Jeffery Immelt the CEO of GE who is moving GE manufacturing facilities and jobs to China is also Barack Obama’s “JOBS CZAR”. Helluva conflict of interest isn’t it?

        Frederick….you are correct, but that un-American and insulting commercial begs for an apology to us from Coca Cola. That commercial was really bad and not the same thing as Coca Cola selling their product in foreign countries which I personally don’t have a problem with, BUT I highly RESENT America The Beautiful being sung on a commercial at an All American Sports Game on TV by FOREIGNERS. Don’t know about anyone else, but I was insulted and offended. I LOVE a good cold coke but not any more. Sweet tea will be my drink of choice instead of coke henceforth.

      • Frederick Mullis

        Why is it un-American? because you think it is? There are just as many who think it that it is American. The Song America the beautiful should be sung in every language on earth so everyone can hear just how wonderful our country is. No other country on earth has the varied types of country that we do. I know I have been there. You know what I was offended by, Fords commercials that insulted my intelligence, the Kia commercials that were just pure stupidity, and so many other ones that just made no sense. Drink whatever you wish I am drinking a Diet Coke now. But remember this. It was a frigging 30 second commercial! nothing more nothing less!

    Coke don’t care, Coke could give a crap about this article or any other anti-Coke article as long as people keep buying Coke and making it #1 they will piss on America all they want and laugh about it all the way to the bank.

    So you want to get their attention? I’ll tell you how and if we all follow it we may.

    #1) STOP drinking Coke and all Coke products – period. Not serious enough to do that, then don’t even read on. There are plenty of drink alternatives to Coke that are healthier and you’ll enjoy more if you try.

    #2) Write a letter to every fast food chain or restaurant that only makes Coke products available and tell them they need to diversify and offer other alternatives at the same price or you may have to change your eating establishment preferences.

    #3) Tell people if 7.Up is the un-cola, then Coke is the un-American cola. Ha Ha

    #4) Last item is optional.

    • Dennis

        I hope to God that you didn’t take my comment literally without any of its intended sarcasm. I laugh at all the self-appointed authorities telling me what I must do.

In fact, I am mildly surprised that I haven’t been more actively pursued as a universally accepted authority on nearly everything.
        I abstain on questions such as: “What should I wear?” or “Do I look fat?” since my bones went brittle on me 10 yrs ago.

      • dnav

        Then pray tell, is Coke the fountain of youth? Are we all missing something here? Shall we repent of our sins in wanting America to speak a common language and not melt into the global pot of one world government? Or do we need a world dictator? Is that how we end wars? Should we develop a system to destroy an asteroid before it hits earth? Do we need to release all the freon we have into the air to cool the planet? Maybe the CEO of Coke should become president, he couldn’t do any worse than the tyrant in there now. What do you advise?

      • Dennis

        No. Yes. Maybe it’s up to you. No. No. Yes, I think so but it probably won’t work if the public sector (otherwise known as our government) executes the plan. Freon doesn’t cool air that way and it’s illegal to release it into the environment. I wouldn’t advise that course of action but who knows. Lastly, you should take a deep breath and RELAX!
        Little of what is recorded on these strings is factual or mandatory reading. It is not necessary to believe or understand any of it. Most of it is personal opinions which is like a collection of rectums. Everybody has one. Some good, some bad, but all stink!

    Stupid comment by author about Dems wanting to pay unemployed not to work. I still had 20 plus weeks of unemployment that I earned but since unemployment was cut I no longer get that badly need money. As a person who has been unemployed for almost a year it certainly not because I don’t want to work but I can’t work for $9 an hour either. The author needs to know his facts before making such stupid and unsensitive comments.

    • Florida Rebel

      Hmmm… unemployed for over a year and your benefits were cut. So, no income? Too proud to work for $9/hr. How are you eating? Taking care of your bills? Are you now on the gov’t dole? Are others in the working class paying your way – some working 2 and 3 jobs to make ends meet? You’re too good for that? My father did it when he had to and didn’t complain – ever and I myself have done it when I either had to or wanted to. Grow up man and become a responsible American otherwise your comments mean nothing.

  • billmichael

    Did I miss something…??? That was Great…!!! That was a great commercial. What was supposed to be wrong…???

    • ConnieJ

      The point is that the people, while wearing the garb of their originating country (thus displaying their heritage) they sang in their original languages instead of making the effort to honor our country by singing in English. That would have been so much more impressive.

    • John Beam

      What would have been great would have been a commercial with representatives of other cultures and creeds singing TOGETHER, rather than people singing separately and divided by their languages. Multiculturalism never unifies, and leftists either do not understand it, or they understand it all to well.

      • billmichael

        You know, I have to agree with you. Regardless of what they are wearing they should be singing and speaking in English, which is this nation’s language. Why come and make your life here if you are not willing to at least learn and speak English…??? Yes, I see your point and it is a good one.

    As one who’s part Cajun and part Italian you folks amaze me. Do you think you’re totally 100% red blooded American when your ancestors came from other parts of the globe? We all talk of violence in various forms but the way you talk about the Coke ad’s just as bad. It makes me sick to think that those who preach Law Abiding come out with the garbage you seem to spew. I’m proud of my roots and by the grace of God I wish at times the type of Justice my grandparents had in Italia was enforced here in the US. Granted it was harsh but for what the crime was the punishment was fitting. How can some of you look at yourselves in the mirror like you do? Hail Mary Mother of Jesus, I’m not perfect but for me to sit back and judge innocent children for wanting something better for themselves, older people the same, and wantin change in my Govt. it’s mind bogglin to hear of adults talk of such as you do.

    • Luke

      I’m proud of my heritage as well but I don’t require that all my legal transactions be carried out in Gaelic. I don’t insist in having my differences of opinion settled by representative combat to the death. I don’t demand that my political leaders belong to the Presbyterian or Catholic Church. I am not required to participate in clan warfare to solve such problems as water and grazing rights. The point is, when we came to this country, we agreed to live by a pre-existing set of laws. We agreed to speak a common language. We embraced a culture that was not ours and we became Americans.

      Today, most immigrants do not want to become something called an “American”. They not only want to keep their own language and culture, they often want to keep their own legal system. This refusal to become part of the nation is fatal to a nation of immigrants. In that sense, an advertising campaign that celebrates such refusal to embrace the common culture is little more than a cry for the balkanization of what was once a unified country.

    The song is America The Beautiful and our language is English. So show all the people who make up America but for Gods sake do it in English.

    Don’t care what ethnic group people come from. Generally speaking, in America just speak English and fit in. No one should try to change our beloved country into what they come from. Today, I don’t think anyone would voluntarily come to this country if they had been happy with their past experiences. There are probably a few extenuating circumstances. Illegals don’t risk their lives coming across the border and/or coming here under the guise of leaving if they are happy with their originating country. We used to call ourselves a “melting pot” meaning we melded into a united effort and fit together in the working force and a democraic republic. Coke made a mistake in thinking “American the Beautiful” should be sung in any language for an American event, other than what the title insinuates …..in my opinion that’s American English with its many dialects.

    The commercial would have been more acceptable if it had shown various ethnicities all singing in English. The way to get ahead in America is to learn to speak English.
