Coca Cola and Budweiser: A Contrast In Super Bowl Ads

As is usual during the Super Bowl broadcast, the commercials were one of the more anticipated parts, but this year the ads were particularly disappointing.  One ad in particular was troubling – Coca Cola.  If you haven’t seen the ad yet, take a look:

  

 

It started out well but when it switched to foreign languages singing “America the Beautiful” the Coca Cola corporation really missed the mark.  Their multicultural agenda was evident and I can’t help but wonder if they are one of the companies in the Chamber of Commerce pushing Congress for immigration ‘amnesty.’   And for good measure it appears they threw in a same-sex couple with their daughter toward the end.  Really pushing the leftist ideals. 

Allen West talked about this on his website this evening and he had a quote from President Theodore Roosevelt that is applicable here. 

Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or leave the country. 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 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. 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, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile. 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, and American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding house; and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.

It used to be that when people came to America they assimilated into American culture.  They learned English, called themselves Americans and gave up any cultural links to their former countries.  Now people come here, call themselves hyphenated-Americans and expect all kinds of services to be provided to them in their native language.   Coca Cola seems to be endorsing this. 

bud-hero-hed-2014By contrast, the best commercial of the evening was easily Budweiser’s ad showing the homecoming of Lt. Chuck Hadd to Winter Park, FL.  While I am not a consumer of alcoholic beverages I was very pleased to see the Budweiser corporation supporting and documenting this homecoming.  Coca Cola should take notes.  It’s a shame that every American serviceman and woman do not get the same reception when coming home from deployment.  The ad broadcast during the Super Bowl was only one minute; to see the full five minute video head over to LD Jackson’s website, Political Realities.  You’ll be glad you did.

    First of all, thanks for the link.

    Secondly, I find it hard to understand why so many people in this country insist on multiculturalism. They have completely forgotten what it really means to come to America and become an American. I am of the opinion that we have suffered as a result.

    • The worst part of it is when people come here and insist on retaining their previous culture, their previous language and their previous ideals, America’s identity as a nation takes a beating. And politically, they insist on the government being more like the one they left behind. There’s a reason why most immigrants vote Democrat; most governments are more liberal than ours. What people seem to fail to understand, however, is that the reason all these people came here in the first place is being destroyed by the multiculturalism a lot of them seem to insist on having.
