10. I busted one of these idiots and he never recognized it.

I plink around on SodaHead, a polling site that cannot be taken seriously b/c of an unusual number of RWNJ's there. Funny thing was one of them lambasting all "immigrants" for ruining our country, turned right around and gave me a straight answer to "so where did your lineage immigrate from?" He answered with approximately all 3rd generation european. No native blood mentioned at all.
I left that as it was, did not reply again.

140. It's really an extension of manifest destiny. We know God favors Western Europeans.

For one thing he made us white, the preferred color for human beings (everyone knows that).

God guided us to America and gave it to us because we were favored. He smote the enemies that stood in our way (native Americans, Spaniards, the French, English and the Mexicans). See? No racism. God given favoritism.

152. In 1974...

...I listened to a lively 15 minute narrative from an elderly gentleman in the Edinburgh train station, and understood only 4 words - "me and my wife." I must have smiled and nodded at the right times, because he just kept on talking.

Had a similar experience in the state of Georgia, on the way to Florida, when we stopped to ask directions. No GPS back then. Didn't understand a word. Said, "Thanks very much," and drove off.

If you haven't been reading on the Coca Cola FB page, you should be. Talk about shining a bigot spotlight on themselves! I have seriously been laughing at their distress for the past 24 hours - laughing so hard that I've cried! They are apoplectic over this! Initially, many of them even missed the gay couple at the end - I got popcorn while I waited for them to notice (and maybe clued them in some too).

I am REALLY going to enjoy my vanilla coke tonight.

He was schooling people, incorrectly, on the origins of the song. And being re-educated.

If you follow him to his FB page, a few hours later, he recites the information he was dragged kicking and screaming to onto his own FB page, as if he intentionally went out and found it.

I'm not kidding, I'm STILL reading the comments there and laughing at them! I know it's "elitist" and "mean" to laugh at ignorance, but hey, if you have internet (and if you are posting on the Coke FB page, you have internet!) and continue to be that ignorant - you are making a CHOICE to not understand the world, or know about things beyond your front door. That, I feel absolutely okay with laughing at. I also really love the "You are racist for calling us racists!"... oh, and, "Why are we all talking in English on here then if it's not our language?". I'm telling you, I cannot wait until this part of our society no longer exists - it HAS to go away at some point, right? I mean, what percentage of the population do they represent now? Less than a quarter, right? Or, is that just those too stupid to be quiet?

Call me a bigot if you so choose but I see it as the National Anthem was written in English. Not Russian, not German, not French, not Spanish and not Indian. ENGLISH!!! I feel that English is the only language that the National Anthem should ever be sung in. I see this commercial as a disgrace to our nations anthem.


**knock-knock** Last time I checked I only wished America the Beautiful was our national anthem, rather than the Star Spangled Banner. Did it change sometime when I wasn't looking?

There's no such thing as "Native American". The Cherokee and Navajo came from Asia, they immigrated over the Bering Strait. Even the term "Native American" is a modern invention and had historically it would have had no meaning to the Cherokee or Navajo.

Also, there was no Bering Strait back then.
Also, they did not immigrate, they migrated over time.

40. Why 15,000

 

Why 15,000? Why not 15 years, or 150? It seems like a bit of an arbitrary place to draw the line.

In fact, there were several different waves of migration over thousands of years, when the Bering Strait wasn't under water. The earliest wave were white and Black. The Olmecs were Black, and Kennewick Man and the Solutreans were white. Some of the Asian tribes came later and ethnically cleansed the white and Black population, so really the Cherokee and Navajo have no more claim to America than anyone else.

They worshipped white gods. The Incas worshipped Viracocha who was a white man, and the Aztecs worshipped Quetzalcoatl, who was also a white man. When the Spanish first arrived, they thought it was the gods returning.

53. The only reason that they were worshiping "white" gods

 

Is because these "gods" were actually space travelers, trying to communicate with them. If you look, they all have space ships, and they all look like grey aliens, in one way, shape or form.

That's right, anthropology is highly politicized these days, so you're not allowed to use the word "race". However, we all know the reality of race; we just have to use the latest politically correct euphemism to describe it instead. It all amounts to the same basic thing though.

91. It's politics, not science

 

There's nothing scientific about it. Scientists are happy enough to differentiate and classify the rest of the living world into genus, species, sub-species, etc; the only reason some scientists are reluctant to apply normal biological classification schemes to humans is for political reasons. Science was kicked out of anthropology a long time ago. It really took hold in the 60s and 70s, but it has earlier roots with the charlatan Franz Boas.

In the medical field, physicians and scientists can't afford to be politically correct because people's lives are at stake. Ask them about racial characteristics. You'll get a more honest answer from them than you will from highly-politicized social anthropologists.

If anthropology in the past basically consisted of trying to prove the white race's superiority, then I'm not going to cry "political correctness" just because that's changed for the better.

FYI, all humans are one species. We know this because we anthropologists DO apply normal biological classification schemes to humans. Science has never been kicked out of anthropology. Physicians will be the first to tell you all humans are one species.

93. Then by that definition, there are no "natives" anywhere, except maybe parts of Africa.

American Indians have been here thousands of years, whereas Europeans (like me) have been here only a few hundred. So based on that, who appears to have a greater claim on American being their "homeland"?

If you think I'm kidding, read the history of the Pope giving the two halves of the world to two Catholic princes. That resulted in the worst genocide in history, still ongoing from the Native American perspective, especially in Brazil). And English in America followed together with two centuries of genocide just to create a manifestly-destined USA.

The petty meanness has no end with some people, and they wish to rule over everyone. Stupidity endures.

Also the hypocrisy, such a song, or exercise (even if flawed) attempts brotherhood and unity. When someone is not of their liking and association they complain about that person's divisiveness.

Coca-Cola has clever advertising. Coca-Cola has some vicious business practices. Their commercials often are artful. The comments are made just on the art and spirit of the commercial, which were lovely.

68. No, Earl, these aren't conservatives.

I would like against to make my pitch for decoupling the terms conservative and right wing. When they are conflated, we get those ridiculous moments like last week when RNC chairman Reince Priebus demands MSNBC President Phil Griffin to be made to all "right of center" Americans for a tweet saying that "right wingers" will hate the new Cheerios TV spot featuring a bi-racial American family. The really ridiculous part is that Phil Griffin actually apologized.

A conservative is a person with whom I disagree more often than not, but who is capable of making a rational case for keeping taxes low. At least he's expecting some bang for his buck when the government takes it. I wouldn't include the modern Reagan worshipers as conservatives, since one cannot possibly make a rational argument to cut taxes on the "job creators" since, first of all, all empirical evidence shows that cutting taxes to this level on the wealthy starves state and local governments for revenue that might be used for such unnecessary things as repairing roads, preparing for hurricanes or educating children and second, "job creators" have an abysmal record of creating jobs in the decade since the Frat Boy and the Republicans drastically cut their taxes.

A right winger is more interested in social values than economic issues, and his interest is what groups to exclude from social or political participation. Generally speaking, these people are bigots or one kind or another and usually several at once. These are the people who call the late Trayvon Martin a "thug" with no evidence that his behavior fit that epithet and conflate speaking Spanish with being a illegal alien, as in the above remarks on the Coca Cola spot. These are the people who support using voter ID to bar people they don't want voting from polling places and forcing women contemplating terminating a health threatening or otherwise unwanted pregnancy to get a vaginal ultrasound. They assume all Muslims are terrorists, all blacks are stupid, lazy and violent, all Hispanics are illegal aliens no matter where they born and any woman who insists on making her own health decisions is a slut. In short, they are racists, sectarian bigots and misogynists. It is no wonder why the sentiments expressed by these people about the Coca Cola ad are more fitting coming from a member of the Ku Klux Klan than a Republican member of Congress, or at least it used to be before Jesse Helms became the model for Republican members of Congress.

Which brings us back to Reince Priebus and his insistence last week that Phil Griffin apologize to all Americans "right of center." Neither Mr. Griffin nor anyone else owe an apology to the reprobates in the Ku Klux Klan or the neo-Nazi movement, to misogynists like Mike Huckabee or Phyllis Schlafly (yes, she's a misogynist), to sectarian bigots like Pam Geller or Frank Gaffney or to social elitists like Dave and Charlie Koch, who think they have some divine right to rule over the rest of us because they have money. Mr. Priebus knows what his party represents these days when he demanded an apology from a television executive for a tweet directed at "right wingers" who would find something intrinsically offensive about a biracial family and didn't use the word the word "Republican" at all. By demanding such an apology, Republican National Committee Chairman Priebus has admitted that the his party is no longer conservative, but aligned with the worst and lowest elements on the right wing.

...the commercial came on and the "Oh Beautiful" switched from English to Spanish (I think that's the first transition) that conservative heads would be exploding all around the country. Laughed my own head off thinking of teabaggers with their "all american" beers, all nestled in their armchairs with American and Confederate and "don't tread on me!" flags on the walls behind them, enjoying the start of it, thinking it was going to be something right up their alley with a cowboy on a horse and all then....

Bam! Blindsided. First shot to the heart with that first language switch (how dare it be sung in any language other than English), and final shot to the head with the woman in the headscarf toward the end (Islamics can't be American!)....

I knew exactly what I'd be hearing from them today concerning that ad. And I'm not disgusted; I'm pretty satisfied. Thanks Coca-Cola for upsetting these assholes so outrageously (and beautifully as it is a beautiful commercial).

123. It is. But (1) The Superbowl is not a global affair and (2) The Song is not a global affair....

Which is to say that, unlike soccer, American football is not watched globally. It features a game played almost exclusively in America with only American teams. Hence, commercials played during the Superbowl are rarely intended for a global audience. Add to this the song "America," a patriotic hymn sung exclusively by Americans, and we can conclude that though Coca-cola is global, the ad was not. The ad was "American" for Americans.

Which is why conservative viewers who think: American = white men who speak English are pissed. Because this is commercial had that patriotic hymn performed in languages other than English (some would consider that sacrilege) and featured people who who were not white men (or at least not all in uniform, which is the only way conservatives accept multiculturalism).

Does that clear up the confusion—or didn't I understand your question?

107. My message to conservatives

LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT

That's what they used to say to us when we complained about the war, or social issues.

109. I honestly don't understand their objections

I saw the commercial and thought it was kind of sweet. Today I'm shocked to read about the firestorm it caused. I just don't understand conservatives.

112. Where is the BIG tent? Somebody...anyone?? Now that

I'm on a roll...Party of Lincoln...Log-cabin Republicans...don't hear that now ...do they think we forgot?

They are showing their TRUE colors and they ain't red, white and blue!

PBO has a very white mother (who was an anthropologist) and a very black father.

So, they will get old and go to a hospital. I hope that those old, sick people get a very black doctor who is female, atheistic and gay! What will they do...can we all say Schenfraude (sp)!

Then I told her today how the Republicans felt about it and she was shocked.

129. Next year Coke should do a totally bagger friendly spot and let them choke on it!

Maybe it will go completely over their heads but let see fat white guys pitching horse shoes, pie wagons cramming pie into their faces at church picnics, rednecks screaming threats at little league umpires, real "Mericans!" Just like they would love! Bring it on!

131. It isn't just the RWers.

Apparently if you are a liberal and like this commercial you are a mindless sheep, who approves of union busting, poison water, and incapable of seeing that this commercial is the equivalent of the promotion of the Third Reich! The only thing both extremists have in common is they think the commercial is "baaaaad."

132. Why are Liberals?

Up in arms in praise of the Coca-Cola ad? You realize this is nothing more than bourgeois multi-culturalism? Not only that but don't you Liberals realize that Coca-Cola is an imperialist corporation that hires thugs and right wing paramilitary organizations to murder and brutalize trade-union activists in Colombia?

136. I find Allen West Insanely Funny

 


In my family alone, we speak Spanish and German and Danish and Korean and Mandarin.

The big joke is that you have to speak English to become a citizen, but a citizen can speak any damned language he pleases.

The icing on the cake is that the German speakers are natives of Kansas while the Spanish speakers are natives of Vermont.

Stick that in your pipes and smoke it, you nativist bastards.

I found it to be thoroughly what America is all about! Inclusive and beautifully done are words I thought of while it was playing. I loved it!

150. Yup!Unregulated W. VA. tap water is official Tea Party drink!

With Pepsi on record for supporting gay rights, conservatives have nowhere to turn, except for a nice tall glass of unfiltered, unregulated West Virginia tap water.
