The commercial sparked criticism from several conservatives, including former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin, who tweeted that the ad had a "politically charged message" that has "Americans speechless." Link

So, is this for real? Is it now considered bad form to remind Americans that unless they are from the First Nations, they come from immigrant stock?

Is the derp indeed that strong?

The nation was built on slavery too.
Maybe it's time to crank up the plantations again.

Women couldn't vote either...

Things change.

So this is Anheuser-Busch's plan to get market share in blue states?

LOL.

Life really is stranger than fiction.

I find this even funnier, now the Budweiser isn't even an American owned company anymore.
Stay out of politics Budweiser. Stick to the cute commercials.

But hey, they are going to get lots of publicity over this.

Why does anyone care? Anheuser Busch is not even American anymore.

Indeed.
The beer isn't that good anyway.
I couldn't tell you the last time I bought an Anheuser-Busch product... it has been many years.

Yep past immigrants came for many reasons, learned the language and strove to become Americans.. That is what built the country. There seems to be a propensity for some of the new arrivals to never want to assimilate and even change America's laws and customs to some hell hole they left.

If that was how the beer company got started then I see nothing wrong with the video. A dream came true and the company was so successful they could buy an outrageously expensive add during the Super Bowl.

Also when Augustus Busch came to America he was already from a wealthy family and came with investment money to start a brewery.

The idea that he faced hardships like the majority of American's forefathers when they immigrated here is laughable.

All the money they wasted on this ad that could have actually helped those poor immigrants/refugees. Such a shame.

InBev now right? It's still a worthwhile point about American culture.

Few people realize that following the influx of Germans in the mid-late 19th century, Germans became and reamin the largest ethnic group in the United Sates. That's how eventually seamless their integration was. But just like with Irish and Italians and pretty much everyone else, the nativists of the time shouted about how they'd never assimilate and how they were taking he jobs and destroying the country.

Just like they do now. And they're as wrong now as they've always been.

Also, in terms of beer, the influx of German immigrants was good news for pilsner fans.

That being said, as beer goes, Bud does suck.

Worse. Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV, they merged with Miller last year and now produce every single beer you should never consume.

Modelo Especial is where it's at, although I quit drinking altogether a couple years back. Unsure why big business is getting so involved with politics lately. Seems to be a dumb business move in my opinion.
