Posted on 09/11/2010 8:10:48 PM PDT by Liz
This is a commercial Budweiser did for 9/11. They only aired it once so as not to benefit financially from it.
Budweiser just wanted to acknowledge that horrible day and pay tribute to America and it's heroes.
Wow!! Thanks for posting I haven’t seen it before.
Every time I see this ad, it nearly makes me cry.
I remember this. It was the first indication the Leftists were going to stab us in the back concerning Muslim terrorism. Aired a few months after 9/11, and they were screaming about Budweiser “profiting” from 9/11. Even before Haliburton.
First time I uttered “Bastards” and I was not referring to the Muzzies.
I wonder how long it’ll be for Obama to condemn it.
The Clydesdale is a draft horse breed from Lanarkshire, Scotland, and its name was inspired by the River Clyde. The Clydesdales history goes back to the mid-1700s, when native stocks were mated with larger Flemish horses and then -selected for use in agriculture and for all types of heavy hauling, including transport through the streets of Glasgow. Clydesdale horses were first exhibited under the breed name in 1826, and the breed was further standardized through the -system of hiring out purebred stallions. The Clydesdale Horse Society was formed in 1877, and its breed registry records go back to the 1830s.
The Clydesdale was first imported to North America in the 1840s. The breeds attractiveness and size led to its use in promotional hitches, such as one sponsored by the Chicago Stockyard Company. In the 1930s, the Anheuser Busch Company of St. Louis, Missouri, began to use a hitch of Clydesdales to celebrate the end of Prohibition and to represent the companys products.
The "Budweiser Clydesdales" were an immediate sensation when they delivered the first post-Prohibition beer to the White House, and the hitch has proven to be one of the most popular and successful advertising symbols of all time. Less well known is the fact that Anheuser Busch has maintained a Clydesdale breeding program since 1953, and that the companys commitment to the breed during the 1950s and 1960s was critical to its survival in North America.
The Clydesdale combines strength and style. The breed's action is distinctive, with each foot lifted cleanly off the ground so that the bottom of the foot is visible from behind. The forelegs are well planted under the shoulders, the legs are straight, and the feet are durable. Clydesdales should have breadth between the eyes, with a flat facial profile and a wide muzzle. The withers are high, the back short, and the quarters long and well-muscled. The most common color is bay, though black, brown, chestnut, and roan are also seen. The Clydesdale resembles the Shire, and the breeds are related.
As with many breeds of livestock, the Clydesdale has evolved during the 1900s to meet the changing demands of the times. In the early 1900s, the market favored a compact animal. More recently, breeders have selected for a taller horse to be used in fancy hitches and in the show ring. Todays Clydesdales stand 16.218 hands (6672") at the withers and weigh 16001800 pounds. The largest individuals are taller, weighing as much as 2200 pounds.
The North American population of Clydesdale horses has increased steadily during the past thirty years, and the population is now at an all-time high, with more purebred foals registered annually than ever before. Globally, the breed is well known but not common, with an estimated global population of about 5,000 horses.

Way Cool thank you for that.
Very intersting, thanks. Where would this country be without the Scots. Alba gu Brath!
i remember the first time this ad was shown- the 2002 Super Bowl...
i lost a dear friend on 9-11:
my wife had a miscarriage less than a month earlier seven weeks into her first pregnancy and the sh!t never seemed to stop...
we decided to go to a favorite bar and watch the Super Bowl, Pats/Rams....i saw the ad and was ready to burst into tears so i did not look at anyone and regained my composure...
now you’ll love this- the next day when the “experts” rate all the Super Bowl ads, they panned this one...
Thanks Liz, I hadn’t seen it.
. NEVER forget who did this
It has been nine years since the cowardly, murdering Muslims attacked America, taking over 3,000 innocent lives.
Michelle Obama has an open letter on the White House site reminding us all that September 11th is 'Nationl Day Of Service' day. Obama means to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry, and an "interfaith day of service".
The Pretender In Chief cannot have Americans remembering what really happened on 9-11-01. As an islamist he must defuse any potential threat to his true religion and denigrate the sacrifices of those who were murdered by his brother Muslims on that tragic day.
Don't let it happen.
Awesome video tribute every American should watch: Most viewed of any 9/11 video, now in the Smithsonian. Made by a New Yorker who lived through it.
Be sure to read authors,That Day, and Anatomy of the Attack. http://www.frugalsites.net/911/attack/
Videos are offered on site for a nominal fee.
Every moderate Muslim is a potential terrorist. The belief in Islam is like a tank of gasoline. It looks innocuous, until it meets the fire. For a moderate Muslim to become a murderous jihadist, all it takes is a spark of faith.

Muslims dancing in the streets celebrating the murder of 3,000 Americans:
Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. Barack Hussein Obama
it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit Barack Hussein Obama
We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better, including my own country. Barack Hussein Obama
The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country Barack Hussein Obama
I have lived in a Muslim-majority country... I know, because I am one of them. Barack Hussein Obama
As a student of history, I also know civilizations debt to Islam. Barack Hussein Obama
Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality. Barack Hussein Obama
And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States. Barack Hussein Obama
And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear. Barack Hussein Obama
Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the freedom to practice ones religion. That is why there is a mosque in every state of our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders. That is why the U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it. Barack Hussein Obama
"And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, wed be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world...And so theres got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples. Barack Hussein Obama
We are not nor have we even been at war with Islam Barack Hussein Obama
That was beautiful.
Thanks Liz for that post. All these year’s I have never checked the history.
Appreciate FreeRepublc just for this kind of information.
Thank you for posting this - it brings back some of the anger and resolve I felt walking with co-workers up West Side Highway as the towers burned - businesses along the road were setting up water stations for the crowds. For those who were in NY - remember the talk that morning about more incoming planes - then the quiet cheers when the fighter jets came down the Hudson?
Does anyone remember a Boeing ad that came out shortly after the attacks that talked about some believing America’s best days were behind her and ending with...but we’ll keep introducing evidence to the contrary?
First time I have viewed it. My God, what a great touching video.
I guess this asshat was absent on 9/11/01. I watched their deeds, and learned everything I need to know about islam. I also know everything I need to know about this impostor.
How dare they... how dare they... break out of their scapegoat mold? When everybody and their uncle knows that beer makes husbands shoot their wives on super bowl sunday?
A pox on the liberals, a big mug raised to common sense. I do not drink, but if I did, I would have a Bud right now.
Awesome; tugs at your heart.
Thanks Liz - I actually think there are more Clydesdales here in the US than Scotland - just like the Scots themselves these days.
The majestic Clydesdale Team
Ping for later viewing.
Earlier, I watched the events of 9/11 again on history channel and just now found this post. My heart aches for the lost and their families. We all were affected. It still hurts and now they want to come here and rub our nose in it, right at ground zero!!!. Damn all you Islamic bastards to hell. Your religion is based on evil and satan. It’s time for America to cleanse itself of this cancer.
I cry every time I see that......:(
I think they may be playing us on the building of the mega mosque. Say they want to build a huge islamic center in America, sort of like a second mecca. Of course the American people are going to balk. So they act they are going to build it at Ground Zero, knowing the people will say hell no! So they say well, maybe we can compromise. By then the American people are so relieved they won’t be building at Ground Zero, they won’t fight it being built somewhere else. Viola! They get their mecca II and no one says a word.
You may be right, but there was a time when America would not have stood for this. Maybe I have lived too long, but I remember a time when the country was unified and stood tall against all enemies foreign or domestic. Now we have enemies within that are willfully opening the doors to the islamic scourge. If we don’t stop it here and now, I doubt we ever will. I learned all I need to know about islam on 9/11. A storm is coming and I may be old but I can still load and keep the powder dry....to the last man.
Thanks for posting.
beautiful post.....the whole thing....the video and the responses
Great post - thanks
Today, the Clydesdale's most significant presence is in exhibition and parades.
The Clydesdale is a breed of draft horse derived from the farm horses of Clydesdale, Scotland, and named after that region. Thought to be over 300 years old, the breed was extensively used for pulling heavy loads in rural, industrial and urban settings, their common use extending into the 1960s when they were still a familiar sight pulling the carts of milk and vegetable vendors.
They have been exported in the Commonwealth and United States where they are famous for their use as the mascot of various beer brands, including Anheuser-Busch's Budweiser brand, Carlton & United Beverages and several others.

Anheuser-Busch, Inc., St. Louis, Missouri
Product Description: Prepare for ultimate refreshment. Grab a Bud Light Lime and experience the superior drinkability of Bud Light with a splash of 100% natural lime flavor. One taste and youll find the summer state of mind.
Budweiser is undrinkable but that’s a beautiful commercial and I thank them for making it. Beautiful sentiment.
“Flavored Lime water with a hint of Beer”
It’s a “light” beer-—for those who do not want that beer-ish taste.
Good one but not new.
You’ll have to admit the Bud Lime advert is nice, too.
You need to stand next to one to appreciate their majesty. I did ;-)
Wish I could.
Very well done.
