A Letter to Coca Cola


Lots to read but do take the time. 


I think this woman has made some very thought provoking comments.   


 I was jarred by that Superbowl commercial when I saw the woman in Islamic
 headdress and then heard the song in other languages, but this person really
 spells out the disconnect between what we want to believe about diversity
 and reality.


 A Letter to Coca Cola
 This woman is REALLY fed up!


 I watched some of the commercials that were played during the Super Bowl.  I
 always enjoy the ones from Anheuser Busch.  They showed the "Welcome Home"
 celebration in Winter Park , Florida , for returning soldiers.  And who
 doesn't love those Clydesdales?  I didn't like the one from Coca Cola.  All
 those young women singing " America The Beautiful" dressed in ethnic garb
 and singing in a foreign language really pissed me off.  Americans sing in
 English to honor America ; not Farsi or Urdu.  


 I left a comment for Coke on YouTube under the video of that commercial.  I
 got a reply from them today, which you can read below, and then you can read
 my answer to them.  Maybe this time they'll understand.  


  I received this from Coke:
 Thank you for your email and your loyalty to Coca-Cola over the years, .  We
 greatly value your business and appreciate hearing from you.


 "It's Beautiful" was created to celebrate Coke moments among all Americans
 who together enjoy ice cold, refreshing Coke.  For centuries America has
 opened its arms to people of many countries who have helped to build this
 great nation.  "It's Beautiful" provides a snapshot of the real lives of
 Americans representing diverse ethnicities, religions, races and families,
 all found in the United States .  All those featured in the ad are Americans
 and " America The Beautiful" was sung by bilingual American young women.


 We believe "It's Beautiful" is a great example of the magic that makes our
 country so special, and a powerful message that spreads optimism, promotes
 inclusion and celebrates humanity - values that are core to Coca-Cola.
 You can find out more about our ad by going to Journey.  I really appreciate
 your feedback and hope this will keep you as a valued customer of ours.  We
 appreciate your interest in our Company.

 My Reply: 


 Where do you live, Timothy?  Since you're with Coca Cola, it is likely
 Buckhead or one of Atlanta 's other exclusive, executive, country club
 neighborhoods.  I lived in one for over two decades, in Hudson , Ohio .  I
 know what they're like.  My youngest son lives in one near Atlanta , too,
 as he is a successful broker with E-Trade, in Alpharetta.  Those
 neighborhoods are not what most of this country is like, however.  Maybe you
 haven't traveled much, or lived in many different states as I have.  


 America's not so beautiful anymore, and it is full of immigrants that have
 no intention of assimilating into our society or becoming truly American.
 They brought their own culture, keep their own culture, and never learn
 anything about ours, except to use it to their advantage.  They don't even
 like Americans.  They make no effort to learn our language.  Ever been to
 Detroit ?  I'll bet you never tried to enter the closed Muslim festival that
 takes place near Ann Arbor , because you'd probably be assaulted before you
 got a block away.  We Americans are not so proud of that kind of behavior,
 and they aren't there to celebrate being American.  


 How about Collinsville , Ohio ?  That's a part of Cleveland , and the
 Collinsville police once yelled at me to "get the hell out of this black
 neighborhood, lady, or we will be calling the meat wagon!" because I had
 gotten lost there.  Police there were barricaded behind locked doors, and
 one could not see a police officer, but were required, in the lobby of the
 station, to pick up a phone to talk to one.  A white woman in that black
 neighborhood was in great danger, they explained.  The slums of Cleveland ,
 Detroit , Los Angeles , and especially Chicago , or any other major city are
 littered with filth and disease and the hatred of blacks toward whites.
 It's the same in the L.A. barrio, my friend, and they aren't singing
 Kumbaya, either.  A recent mayor of L. A. declared he intended to take
 California back as Mexican territory.  Do you consider that a Kumbaya
 moment?  An " America , The Beautiful" kind of moment?  They call themselves
 "Reconquista", and they are there to do just that.  They murder and steal
 from Americans who live near the Mexican border in Arizona , but our
 government says Arizonans can't protect themselves from the marauders.  


 Is the America where you find massive amounts of illegal drugs and thick
 lines of cocaine on glass -top coffee tables to be considered beautiful?
 That's what illegal aliens brought to our once beautiful America .  Is that
 meth lab in the house down the street beautiful?  Is the heroin epidemic now
 seizing the weak in America your idea of " America , The Beautiful"?
 Singing it to us in foreign languages is repugnant to us, and it makes us
 resentful.  Being sung by a young woman who is forced by her family to wear
 the clothing demanded by the oppression of her religion is also repulsive.  


 Do you have children?  Are they allowed to wear a symbol of our country on
 their clothing?  America 's schools don't allow American flags anywhere
 anymore.  Where are your children going to learn of a "beautiful" America ?
 It won't be at their school.  They are being taught how wonderful Islam is,
 and to celebrate Cinco de Mayo when their brother may be shot at by an
 Afghan terrorist or an alien illegally crossing our border to bring harm to
 our country in the form of theft, drugs, prostitution, or terrorism.  Watch
 the news; you'll see how often there's a squabble over such things, and how
 angry it is making real Americans.  You know, those folks that say the
 Pledge of Allegiance and mean it.  Probably like your mom and dad.  Those
 that came here to flee oppression and build an America they were also
 willing to die to defend.  Not the ones who want to "fundamentally change
 America ".  


 How about Watts, or South Central Los Angeles ?  Boston , or New York , or
 Patterson , New Jersey ?  Do you ever have a desire to participate in or
 watch the Boston marathon again?  You think the Tsarnaov brothers are a part
 of beautiful America ?  


 Beautiful?  No, it isn't.  Not anymore.  Huge numbers of Muslims that
 threaten the white residents of Wylie , Texas by moving into a new
 neighborhood and holding closed, secret meetings in the park, intimidating
 white children, and frightening the elderly don't make this a beautiful
 America .   


 Illegal people from all over the world enter America through wide open
 borders and suffer no consequences.  Lovely people like MS 13 and other
 gangs, and terrorists from the Middle East .  Mexican, Central and South
 Americans serve as donkeys, as beasts of burden, bringing thousands of tons
 of illegal drugs into America , and you want to celebrate their heritage?
 Why?  And you want me to celebrate their heritage with you?  Have you all
 lost your collective minds?
 At least ten thousand people were brought into the New York City area as
 prostitutes to serve the football fans that came to see the Super Bowl.
 Many of them were children.  The FBI has been busy rounding them up.  Some
 are only 13 years old.  Is that your America , of which you sing in a
 foreign voice?  Human trafficking in this country is rampant; do you suppose
 a kid was given an ice-cold Coke to enjoy after some sweaty, grunting Denver
 or Seattle fan finished his sex act with her?  I hope it makes you shudder
 and puke.  Those kids were mostly brought into our country from a foreign
 land.  Is that what you want them to know of America , and sing it in their
 language?  What about the adult women who were victimized in that group of
 ten thousand?  Know this - they do not come willingly.  They do not perform
 those acts willingly.  And they sure as hell don't do it to be in the land
 of Coca Cola ..  They hate us because we allow it to happen.  I hate to
 tell you what they would do to you with a bottle of Coke, and that I know of
 because I am an R. N. who witnessed such things in an emergency room.
 That's not " America , The Beautiful".
 Well, Timothy, change for the better under liberals is just not going to
 happen, and the backlash I'm giving you is only a polite synopsis of the
 feelings millions of us have about those immigrants who speak different
 languages and come from cultures that we do not embrace, nor do we want our
 children or grandchildren exposed to them or their culture except from afar.
 We do not want our grandchildren celebrating Cinco de Mayo and being told
 that they cannot display the American flag on their own home or a T-shirt.
 It makes us angry, and where we once practiced tolerance and helped those
 who wish to assimilate, we now shun and cower in fright, or watch violent
 clashes between cultures on the nightly news.  And we arm ourselves against
 the invasion.  


 If Coca Cola is going to be politically correct and sing Kumbaya while
 hoping that we who are outside that closed executive neighborhood of yours
 enjoy a cold refreshing Coke and smile at your distinctly anti-American
 silly song, you're badly mistaken.  You're going to watch your sales
 plummet.  You're going to watch others show real patriotism, like Anheuser
 Busch, and applaud the way they show appreciation to our soldiers who are
 killing the relatives of those Muslims in Detroit and Patterson who would
 spit on you, or worse, if you went to their neighborhoods.  And I'll be at
 those Independence Day parades, applauding our troops and those who know the
 real America the way it is supposed to be and was before liberals took over
 and convoluted and ignored our laws, spat on our Constitution, and ruined
 our America .  


 I'm through supporting companies that support our enemies.  Bye-bye, Coke.
 It used to be America 's drink.  Now your company is America 's poison.

 Grandmother of  3, or maybe 4 future military veterans, because they will be
 taught to serve a real America , for Americans.  All our grandchildren will
 be taught who the real friends of America really are, as we enjoy an ice
 cold cola from Grandma's pretty red Soda Stream machine from Israel .  (At
 least they'll know who their real friends are.)
