Coca Cola Offends People Who Purport to Hate “PC”

Last week, left-leaning horrible 24-hour news network MSNBC was forced to apologize for Tweeting,
“Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family. http://t.co/SpB4rQDoAR“.
A staffer even lost his job over it.
MSNBC was right to bow to pressure from Reince Priebus and the Republican National Committee. It got it all wrong.
To sum up, if you are outraged or angry over this ad for a sugar water that is sold around the world, and is practically an ambassador for America itself, then be advised that you are a horrible and awful person, and I implore you to get help.
Here’s one Fox News hack:
Coca Cola is the official soft drink of illegals crossing the border. #americaisbeautiful

Here’s former Congressman and alleged crime perpetrator Allen West,
I am quite sure there may some who appreciated the commercial, but Coca Cola missed the mark in my opinion. If we cannot be proud enough as a country to sing “American the Beautiful” in English in a commercial during the Super Bowl, by a company as American as they come — doggone we are on the road to perdition. This was a truly disturbing commercial for me, what say you?
Well, it’s not as patriotic as beating a detainee or threatening to kill an Iraqi policeman, so maybe we shouldn’t take West’s word for it. And don’t forget to follow #BoycottCoke and #SpeakAmerican (yes, that.)
I loved the hell out of that Coke ad, and I’m not offended or threatened by Americans who speak or sing in another language. In fact, I’m one of them.
