Coke gets undeserved backlash from paranoid, xenophobic conservatives
Was anybody really that upset about the Coke commercial featuring "America the Beautiful" last night?
How dare Coke acknowledge that the US, above all others, is a melting-pot nation that welcomes cultures different from our own? I thought it was a pretty cool way of stating that we're a welcoming nation, not a propaganda piece for immigration reform as some people were whining about.
Shockingly, they included the words, "...God shed his grace on thee." in English. If anything upsets sensitive, atheist Americans, it's the inclusion of God anywhere in the public forum. I didn't hear them complaining about that, why are conservatives complaining about THAT song, which celebrates the greatness of America, being sung in the many different languages of our immigrants?
If you have a problem with this, then you ARE the problem.
