"Conservatives," rightwingers -- SNOWFLAKES every one of you

Coca-Cola ran a commercial shortly before kickoff of the Super Bowl between the Falcons and Patriots on Sunday night. The commercials soundtrack was America the Beautiful, the song written by Katharine Lee Bates well over 100 years ago. It wasn't a new commercial, but a rerun of one that came out in 2014.

The songs lyrics are sung, alternately, in English, Spanish, Keres, Tagalog, Hindi, Senegalese, French, and Hebrew. AS the song is sung, there are videos of people who were not all white. Maybe the ad, now, is a quiet political stance in the age of Donald Trump, though the advertisement came out before his election. Maybe it was just advertising, geared with the most straightforward goal possible: selling Cokes.

Anyway, lots of dumbass rightwingers -- including those from Virginia's "The Bull Elephant" -- on Twitter were upset, as happens on Twitter. The hashtag #BoycottCoke took off immediately, with hundreds of messages rolling in before the commercial had even ended. They couldn't stand for  a language other than English or a skin color other than white being so prominently featured in the commercial.

I'm not in the mood to feature this racist drivel in the body of this post. You can execute a Twitter search by clicking here, and you'll find lots of stupid shit written by people who, for some reason, can't stand to see the truth.
