Skip to comments.Coca-Cola's America: Is It Yours?
Posted on 02/03/2014 2:08:31 PM PST by Catholic Examiner
This is inspired by a flurry of Facebook posts and comments:
Lot's of potshots are being fired over the Super Bowl ad presented by Coca Cola on Sunday night. Those who were offended at hearing a patriotic song about America sung in foreign languages, are being labeled racist. And those who embrace multi-culturalism are being call unpatriotic. While it is probably somewhere in the middle of both, I am one who felt slighted by the ad.
Facebook is ablaze with the debate and I will add that while I agree with this comment somewhat:
"I loved the ad.... Can anyone imagine how we look to some in other Countries? We ARE the shinning "city on the hill" and if somone who wants to be a part of that city and wants to sing America the Beautiful in their native language then so be it. Grow up !"
...I still feel that multi-culturalism does damage to the nation because now anyone be whatever they want to be in America, except just American which is now something less than ______ American. Once upon a time people, my ancestors, came to America because of the new life it afforded them. Being Italians, they came to this country legally, through Ellis Island, and assimilated into American life. read more...

I always drink and will continue to drink RC Cola. I thought the ad was horrible.
Make sure your ad blockers and virus defenses are updated first.

he’s a troll
I was barely watching, and glanced at the screen since the words were unclear to me. The first thing I saw was a Muslim ragheaded woman. Yes it was offensive, especially knowing that Muslim women want Sharia, not freedom.
Love RC! ad Moonpies too.
Irritating to many, but not a troll.
Lol! nice pic!
My amazing troll powers allow me to continue posting when banned.
He’s kind of stalking me...I will just ignore him from here out...
This Coke ad was even more shocking than the beat down suffered by the Tim Tebow-less Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.
In the end, it is rather bitter-sweet, America being outraged and offended by the Coke ad and Tim Tebow proving that he should have remained as the Broncos QB.
As for Coca-Cola, this may be the end as millions upon millions of Americans will boycott the company.
just reporting what I see...perhaps you are magic...who knows, after all this is the interweb.
Multiculturalism is a stupid idea in the first place.
I mean really...what sort of IDIOT would ever think that “we are all united by our differences” could even remotely work to bring cohesion to a society?
Diversity worship is un-American.
When America was a “Melting Pot”, immigrants who came here were eager to change, to adjust to the American culture, learn the language and become full-fledged Americans.
Now liberals have convinced immigrants to join together into victim groups and demand that America (and American citizans) adjust to accomodate them.
Liberals are in favor of anything that keeps groups and individuals from finding common ground.
The idiocy of multi-cultural laws like those that require election ballots be printed in many languages is mind numbing.
All these kinds of actions do is help the liberals keep us all separated.
But then, the last thing liberals want is for Americans to unite.
It was jarring to hear the song sung in languages that aren't even spoken by immigrants in the US.
If they want to do the whirled peas thing, bring back "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke." It's saccharine, kum by ya and unrealistic, but it's a nice song.
Awesome, I am not the only one out there then. It feels that way sometimes.
I had to mute the TV when that commiemercial came on last night. All I want is to watch football :-)
Oh.. by the way...
Your Examiner blog doesn’t belong in “News”..
Because it’s a blog. Not news.
You could also catch less grief by not excepting blogs on Free Republic.
