Newsflash for Wingnuts

Some of the right wing is going nuts over a multi-lingual version of America the Beautiful in Coke’s Super Bowl ad.  I guess they don’t get the whole melting pot thing.

In addition to the non-English lyrics, the folks are Breitbart are outraged that the ad showed a gay family.  Newflash for Breitbart and all wingnuts:  Katharine Lee Bates, who wrote America the Beautiful, was a lesbian.

The biggest Super Bowl ad outrage was that poor MSNBC staffer who got fired for tweeting about the Cheerios ad that “maybe” the right wing would hate the ad because it featured a bi-racial family.  Losing your job for telling the truth?
