I wasn't surprised when many people who fall on the right side of the political spectrum were upset by Coke's Super Bowl ad last night. And you can always count on Glenn Beck to misread a situation, event or anything that has to do with politics, so his analysis on Coca-Cola's multilingual Super Bowl ad was pretty pathetic.
Glenn Beck was pleasantly surprised by last night's Super Bowl because he didn't witness anything that upset or offended him except, of course, for the Coca-Cola commercial featuring a rendition of "America The Beautiful" sung in various languages.That ad, Beck declared on his radio program today, was "an in your face" effort "to divide people."
Beck: That's all this ad is, this is to divide people, it's an in-your-face and if you don't like it, if you're offended by it, then you're a racist and if you do like it then you're for immigration. That's what it is. You're for progress. That's all this is, is to divide people.
Could it be that maybe Coca-Cola just wanted to do a feel-good ad about America and use a few foreigners to sing its praise? Remember, America was made up of immigrants.
