…but everyone else will love it.
In case you missed it, here’s Coca Cola’s multilingual rendition of America the Beautiful.
Just as everyone guessed, the Right Wing wasn’t pleased by this. And the Right Wing, as you know, isn’t racist at all.
Coca Cola is the official soft drink of illegals crossing the border. #americaisbeautiful

Former tea party congressman Allen West even took time to write a blog post during the game to voice his displeasure. For West, the ad started out strong enough.
“Then the words went from English to languages I didn’t recognize,” a troubled West wrote, calling it “a truly disturbing commercial.”
Michael Patrick Leahy over at Breitbart was offended, too.
Not only did Coke use “a deeply Christian patriotic anthem whose theme is unity – in several foreign languages,” but Leahy noted that the “ad also prominently features a gay couple.”
A gay couple. The audacity!
The ad even inspired a #BoycottCoke hashtag on Twitter and Mediaite has a round-up of the outraged reactions from some rank-and-file conservatives.
Another hashtag popped up on Twitter that was even more embarrassing than #BoycottCoke.
#SpeakAmerican is more embarrassing because, well, American is not a language. Derp. It’s also ironic because the people featured in the ad sang about America. They literally spoke American.
Unfortunately there’s no one Reince Priebus can demand an apology from this time and I doubt anyone from Breitbart or Fox News will be fired for making them look like the racists that they are.
