In what seems to quickly be becoming more of the rule than the exception when it comes to “patriotic” individuals in America, an uproar is occurring over an ad placed by a company. This time, it seems that it’s the latest Coca-Cola Super Bowl ad that has some conservatives across the country screaming “We speak English in America!” and “I’ll never drink Coke again!”  The saddest part of it all? The entire uproar is related to different cultures and people of ethnic backgrounds showing respect towards what is supposed to be an accepting country.

Coca-Cola Super Bowl ad causes conservative uproar.

In what began as a night focused solely on the irony that Washington and Colorado both made it to the Super Bowl after legalizing the use of marijuana, things quickly turned sour when Coca-Cola dared to put out an ad which portrayed individuals singing “America the Beautiful.” No way anyone could get mad at that, right? Come on. We live in a country where something known as the Tea Party actually holds government office; of course someone could get mad at it.

Maybe you’re wondering “why?”  It’s quite simple:  people of different ethnic origins and language backgrounds were assisting in the singing of the patriotic song. That’s right:  people are mad that other individuals, who may not speak English, have the audacity to sing a song about how great our country is. Responses were equally quick on both sides, though; an “I Stand With Coca-Cola” Facebook page was up within minutes of the uproar and had over 700 “Likes” in less than an hour.

Here’s the Coca-Cola Super Bowl Ad.

This isn’t the first time.

This, of course, isn’t the first time that conservatives have went nuts over Super Bowl ads — like the Coca-Cola Super Bowl ad — with the theme of people being accepting of others. A nice ad from Cheerios in 2013, which portrayed a racially diverse family, caused countless racists from around the country to boycott the cereal and leave an onslaught of bigoted comments on the company’s Facebook page.

Here’s the first Cheerios ad with the biracial family.

Heck, Cheerios even doubled down and showed an ad during the same Super Bowl that Coke made a move on. It involved the same racially diverse family from their first ad, and of course, the racists could still be counted on. I’m not even sure why we’re surprised over this type of ignorance anymore.

Here’s the second ad with the same biracial family.

One comment to rule them all.

It’s simply enough to go to Coca-Cola’s Facebook page and read some of the comments on the Coca-Cola Super Bowl ad if you want to get ill. Luckily, not all comments were bigoted. Numerous people showed up to take the soft drink company’s back. Josh, however, in what probably summarized the bulk of the comments, decided to leave a comment that really got to the heart of the matter.

Josh, we salute you.
