I watched some of the commercials that
were played during the Super Bowl. I always enjoy the ones from Anheuser
Busch. They showed the “Welcome Home” celebration in Winter Park ,
Florida , for returning soldiers. And who doesn’t love those
Clydesdales? I didn’t like the one from Coca Cola. All those young women
singing “America The Beautiful” dressed in ethnic garb and singing in a
foreign language really pissed me off. Americans sing in English to
honor America ; not Farsi or Urdu.
I left a comment for Coke on YouTube
under the video of that commercial. I got a reply from them today, which
you can read below, and then you can read my answer to them. Maybe this
time they’ll understand.
I received this from Coke:
Thank you for your email and your loyalty to Coca-Cola over the years, .
We greatly value your business and appreciate hearing from you.
“It’s Beautiful” was created to
celebrate Coke moments among all Americans who together enjoy ice cold,
refreshing Coke. For centuries America has opened its arms to people of
many countries who have helped to build this great nation. “It’s
Beautiful” provides a snapshot of the real lives of Americans
representing diverse ethnicities, religions, races and families, all
found in the United States . All those featured in the ad are Americans
and “ America The Beautiful” was sung by bilingual American young women.
We believe “It’s Beautiful” is a great
example of the magic that makes our country so special, and a powerful
message that spreads optimism, promotes inclusion and celebrates
humanity – values that are core to Coca-Cola.

Where do you live, Timothy? Since
you’re with Coca Cola, it is likely Buckhead or one of Atlanta ’s other
exclusive, executive, country club neighborhoods. I lived in one for
over two decades, in Hudson , Ohio ... I know what they’re like. My
youngest son lives in one near Atlanta , too, as he is a successful
broker with E-Trade, in Alpharetta. Those neighborhoods are not what
most of this country is like, however. Maybe you haven’t traveled much,
or lived in many different states as I have.
America’s not so beautiful anymore,
and it is full of immigrants that have no intention of assimilating into
our society or becoming truly American. They brought their own culture,
keep their own culture, and never learn anything about ours, except to
use it to their advantage. They don’t even like Americans. They make no
effort to learn our language. Ever been to Detroit ? I’ll bet you never
tried to enter the closed Muslim festival that takes place near Ann
Arbor , because you’d probably be assaulted before you got a block away.
We Americans are not so proud of that kind of behavior, and they aren’t
there to celebrate being American.
How about Collinsville , Ohio ? That’s
a part of Cleveland , and the Collinsville police once yelled at me to
“get the hell out of this black neighborhood, lady, or we will be
calling the meat wagon!” because I had gotten lost there. Police there
were barricaded behind locked doors, and one could not see a police
officer, but were required, in the lobby of the station, to pick up a
phone to talk to one. A white woman in that black neighborhood was in
great danger, they explained. The slums of Cleveland , Detroit , Los
Angeles , and especially Chicago , or any other major city are littered
with filth and disease and the hatred of blacks toward whites. It’s the
same in the L.A. barrio, my friend, and they aren’t singing Kumbaya,
either. A recent mayor of L. A. declared he intended to take California
back as Mexican territory. Do you consider that a Kumbaya moment? An “
America , The Beautiful” kind of moment? They call themselves “Reconquista”,
and they are there to do just that. They murder and steal from Americans
who live near the Mexican border in Arizona , but our government says
Arizonans can’t protect themselves from the marauders.
Is the America where you find massive
amounts of illegal drugs and thick lines of cocaine on glass -top coffee
tables to be considered beautiful? That’s what illegal aliens brought to
our once beautiful America . Is that meth lab in the house down the
street beautiful? Is the heroin epidemic now seizing the weak in America
your idea of “ America , The Beautiful”? Singing it to us in foreign
languages is repugnant to us, and it makes us resentful. Being sung by a
young woman who is forced by her family to wear the clothing demanded by
the oppression of her religion is also repulsive.
Do you have children? Are they allowed
to wear a symbol of our country on their clothing? America ’s schools
don’t allow American flags anywhere anymore. Where are your children
going to learn of a “beautiful” America ? It won’t be at their school.
They are being taught how wonderful Islam is, and to celebrate Cinco de
Mayo when their brother may be shot at by an Afghan terrorist or an
alien illegally crossing our border to bring harm to our country in the
form of theft, drugs, prostitution, or terrorism. Watch the news; you’ll
see how often there’s a squabble over such things, and how angry it is
making real Americans. You know, those folks that say the Pledge of
Allegiance and mean it. Probably like your mom and dad. Those that came
here to flee oppression and build an America they were also willing to
die to defend. Not the ones who want to “fundamentally change America ”.
How about Watts, or South Central Los
Angeles ? Boston , or New York , or Patterson , New Jersey ? Do you ever
have a desire to participate in or watch the Boston marathon again? You
think the Tsarnaov brothers are a part of beautiful America ?
Beautiful? No, it isn’t. Not anymore.
Huge numbers of Muslims that threaten the white residents of Wylie ,
Texas by moving into a new neighborhood and holding closed, secret
meetings in the park, intimidating white children, and frightening the
elderly don’t make this a beautiful America .
Illegal people from all over the world
enter America through wide open borders and suffer no consequences.
Lovely people like MS 13 and other gangs, and terrorists from the Middle
East .. Mexican, Central and South Americans serve as donkeys, as beasts
of burden, bringing thousands of tons of illegal drugs into America ,
and you want to celebrate their heritage? Why? And you want me to
celebrate their heritage with you? Have you all lost your collective
At least ten thousand people were
brought into the New York City area as prostitutes to serve the football
fans that came to see the Super Bowl. Many of them were children. The
FBI has been busy rounding them up. Some are only 13 years old. Is that
your America , of which you sing in a foreign voice? Human trafficking
in this country is rampant; do you suppose a kid was given an ice-cold
Coke to enjoy after some sweaty, grunting Denver or Seattle fan finished
his sex act with her? I hope it makes you shudder and puke. Those kids
were mostly brought into our country from a foreign land. Is that what
you want them to know of America , and sing it in their language? What
about the adult women who were victimized in that group of ten thousand?
Know this - they do not come willingly. They do not perform those acts
willingly. And they sure as hell don’t do it to be in the land of Coca
Cola .... They hate us because we allow it to happen. I hate to tell you
what they would do to you with a bottle of Coke, and that I know of
because I am an R. N. who witnessed such things in an emergency room.
That’s not “ America , The Beautiful”.
Well, Timothy, change for the better
under liberals is just not going to happen, and the backlash I’m giving
you is only a polite synopsis of the feelings millions of us have about
those immigrants who speak different languages and come from cultures
that we do not embrace, nor do we want our children or grandchildren
exposed to them or their culture except from afar. We do not want our
grandchildren celebrating Cinco de Mayo and being told that they cannot
display the American flag on their own home or a T-shirt. It makes us
angry, and where we once practiced tolerance and helped those who wish
to assimilate, we now shun and cower in fright, or watch violent clashes
between cultures on the nightly news. And we arm ourselves against the
If Coca Cola is going to be
politically correct and sing Kumbaya while hoping that we who are
outside that closed executive neighborhood of yours enjoy a cold
refreshing Coke and smile at your distinctly anti-American silly song,
you’re badly mistaken. You’re going to watch your sales plummet. You’re
going to watch others show real patriotism, like Anheuser Busch, and
applaud the way they show appreciation to our soldiers who are killing
the relatives of those Muslims in Detroit and Patterson who would spit
on you, or worse, if you went to their neighborhoods. And I’ll be at
those Independence Day parades, applauding our troops and those who know
the real America the way it is supposed to be and was before liberals
took over and convoluted and ignored our laws, spat on our Constitution,
and ruined our America .
I’m through supporting companies that
support our enemies. Bye-bye, Coke. It used to be America ’s drink. Now
your company is America ’s poison.

Mother of 2 American military veterans
Grandmother of 3, or maybe 4 future military veterans, because they will
be taught to serve a real America , for Americans. All our grandchildren
will be taught who the real friends of America really are, as we enjoy
an ice cold cola from Grandma’s pretty red SodaStream machine from
Israel .. (At least they’ll know who their real friends are.)
