Racist Trump supporters boycott Bud over heartwarming Super Bowl ad

Budweiser beer has incurred the wrath of racist Trump supporters for producing a Super Bowl ad that simply tells the story of the beer’s founder, Adolphus Busch.

Busch came to America as a German immigrant.

Bud has been reportedly working on the commercial for a good year now.

There was no way they could have known that immigration would become such a huge issue a year later. But it did. And now Trump supporters are livid.

You need to read the Trump supporters on Twitter. They’re vile. And they’re clearly don’t understand the story of the founding of this country.

    Well, they have to learn French too, my French so far suffices to help them, but it’s pretty limited and won’t stretch much further :-)

  • Zorba

    :-D Do your kids need a tutor? Or a babysitter? I’m a retired teacher.
    Actually, my SIL has two kids (one almost grown and out of the house) and she has already invited us to Germany. They have plenty of room.
    Not something I would have considered before, because I’m getting too old to learn another language, but it’s looking better and better. And Mr. Zorba speaks some German.
    (For me, it’s mainly Greek, plus a couple of Romance languages, but none are like German.)

  • quax

    Interesting coincidence I am happen to be German, too, my wife’s American and now a newly minted Canadian. I guess in a pinch we could house some US refugees, but it’s closed quarters since we have three kids :-)

  • Zorba

    Hey, quax, do you have a guest room?
    My sister-in-law, who is German, dumped her green card and moved back to Germany last year. I can always move in with her, too.

  • quax

    Well, I used to have a Green Card but moved on to Canada and handed it back in. Glad to hear the US is still working for you.

  • More directed at the history-inept who started the thread, but yours just seemed the one to respond to. :)

  • Acronym Jim

    Did I forget to add the sarcasm tag again?

    Apologies.

  • The vetting was even less than that for anyone who had a first or second class ticket. Basically anyone capable of working and not spreading disease was admitted. The whole process took less than 4 hours, and most of that was standing around waiting for your turn.

    It wasn’t until the racists and corporatists took over Congress in the 1920s that quotas and bans started being implemented. It was these that led us to deny many refugees fleeing Europe in the early years of WW2.

  • Ellis Island most certainly was not the only entry point, even during its years of operation. Immigrants came to every single port in the country.

    What’s more. sparky, it would seem to me that not only are the actions of the executive in all things and certainly in terms of the constitutionality of an executive order, subject to challenge in a court of law, but it also seems that any order claiming national security concerns as its justification must tie the action to achieving that goal. And in this case, that is questionable
    The countries mentioned in the ban are countries where civil unrest and violent upheavals are driving the desperation of refugees. Most Muslim immigration, right now, is flowing from the countries on the ban. Not the country’s whose immigrants have engaged in terrorism against the United States. It is therefore, even more likely that this is a ban to affect most or most all of the immigration from Muslim countries. Therefore the inference that this is a ban based on religion is pretty hard to ignore. And you cannot ban people just because it is Tuesday and they are Muslim. The “finding” of national security risk has to be a real one. And the facts presented have to back that up. That said, it is not certain how the court will rule. But it certainly was justified in granting a TRO for the purpose of making the state present its case.

  • Badgerite

    Well, of course, there was that terrible “massacre” at Bowling Green. Oh wait. That was the Little Big Horn. Custer and all.
    And no, up until the 1890’s, states were in charge of their own immigration. And the only people who were subjected to “months of vetting” were those who were entering the country and appeared to be ill. They were sent to an medical infirmary there on Ellis Island for purposes of medical isolation of whatever medical condition they displayed. Yes, they could be there for months.
    But they were the exception, not the rule and it was based on their physical appearance.
    Did they look or act sick. Immigrants then were vetted primarily based on health issues.

  • Badgerite

    They were “vetted” for health issues. Nothing more. That was the primary concern. Were the people coming in carrying any infectious diseases? And Ellis Island was hardly the only port of entry. My own German ancestors came in via the St. Lawrence Seaway and made their way down to St. Paul. And then to Wisconsin because the railroads were selling off farm land dirt cheap.
    Here is the link for the factoids ( non-alternative) that I am now going to quote to you. http://www.ushistory.org/us/25f.asp
    “In the middle half of the nineteenth century, more than one-half of the population of Ireland emigrated to the United States. So did an equal number of Germans. Most of them came because of civil unrest, severe unemployment or almost inconceivable hardships at home. This wave of immigration affected almost every city and almost every person in America. From 1820 to 1870, over seven and a half million immigrants came to the United States — more than the entire population of the country in 1810. Nearly all of them came from northern and western Europe — about a third from Ireland and almost a third from Germany……”
    As to “vetting”, the first transatlantic cable was put in in 1858. And it was hardly high tech and worked sporadically. America did not have an intelligence capability. Interpol, the International Criminal Police Organization, was not founded until 1924. Information about individuals coming or going was not so easily obtained and so able to “vet” people on any other basis than health. More quotes for you from http://www.libertyellisfoundation.org/ellis-island-history#Policy
    “Prior to 1890, the individual states (rather than the Federal government) regulated immigration into the United States.” I think you could probably add TERRITORIES to the category of those parts of the Untied States that handled their own immigration. And:
    “First and second class passengers who arrived in New York Harbor were not required to undergo the inspection process at Ellis Island. Instead, these passsengers underwent a cursory inspection aboard ship, the theory being that if a person could afford to purchase a first or second class ticket, they were less likely to become a public charge in America due to medical or legal reasons.”
    The kind of “vetting” done now was simply not possible back in the day of Ellis Island. And the people most likely to be “vetted” were the third class passengers, the poor and the desperate, and they were “vetted” primarily for health risks. If a child coughed in line, they were removed to a clinic for further observation. Things like that.
    And, indeed, since many of these people coming in from Europe, especially at the close of the 19th century and the start of the 20th century, were coming because of civic unrest having to do with their political views, many of the new arrivals to this country, brought with them the kinds of social and political ideas that were swirling around in Europe at that time. The ones that birth Marx and Engles. In Milwaukee, a socialist city government of German immigrants won elections and cleaned up the blatant frontier corruption that ran rampant at the time. They are still credited with one of the cleanest and most efficient reigns in city government in Milwaukee and are responsible for a well organized street grid and public infrastructure.

    So true Civile It is the back door where all the crime and drugs come from. The cartels are very worried about the wall Trump wants because they won’t be able to sneak drugs into the country.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    You don’t understand sarcasm, do you? When I said the Pilgrims came through Ellis Island, that was sarcasm.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    Do you think the land didn’t appear until California became a state? Sorry, I have to disappoint you. The area above Baja California was called California by map makers long before 1800. If my Abuelita were alive, I could give you very specific dates. Apparently, my early ancestors were workers or servants in a mission around San Diego where many of my relatives still live. I had a tia abuela who swore some relatives were in California in the mid-1700s.

    “There was no California in 1800.” You’re not a deep thinker, are you?

    Now about all that vetting being done on Ellis Island. The questions were real intense: What’s your name and occupation? With whom are you traveling? Do you know anybody in the USA? Do you have a prearranged job? How much money do you have?

    BTW – I’m not a Democrat. I’m an Independent. I often vote for Independent Parties, such as the Green Party.

  • CivilE

    They can’t distinguish between imigration (the backbone of this country) and illegally sneaking in our backdoor.

    I came in the front door and it took 4 years to recieve citizenship; it was worth it. People that sneak into your backdoor while you aren’t looking are criminals…it’s time to lock the backdoor.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    OH KNOW!! You checked my comments on Google! What to do, what to do? I took a much easier route, I checked yours on Disqus. Why do you say Democrats are racist? I do know that you’re not a complete idiot, you say you voted for Obama twice.

  • Richard Sabaski

    I checked your comments on google Try it you got a computer oh I forgot your a Democrat

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    In other words, you know that your comments were absolute fantasy.

  • Richard Sabaski

    GOOGLE

  • Acronym Jim

    Apparently, nobody was really an immigrant unless they came through Ellis Island, therefore there were no immigrants before 1892.

    Q.E.D.!!!!!!

    SMH

  • emjayay

    Maybe you should read a book.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    Proof please. Just supply a link.

    I also suspect you slept through reading class. My reference to just walking into the country was a reference to before Ellis Island (opened in 1892).

  • Richard Sabaski

    Mike_in_Tundra No Mr Democrat. I have watched many history movies on Ellis Island. No one just walked into the country. They were vetted. Perhaps you were asleep in history class.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    Alternate facts, huh? The only vetting was a check on one’s health at Ellis Island. Before Ellis Island (1892), one just got off the boat and went where they wanted to go. Did you ever think about the people arriving on the West Coast? My family arrived in California quite close to 1800. No one checked on them.

    Now I remember, the Pilgrims came through Ellis Island. I feel so foolish, almost as foolish as you are. Did you sleep during history class?

  • Richard Sabaski

    I don’t think the editor of this story knows much about the history of our country. When people first came to this country they were vetted. And sometimes the vetting took months and months and the entry point was Ellis Island. All immigrants had to come in this way. Now The Democrats and their Terroist supporters want to do away with this. It seems they want to bring more terroists into the country so we can have more and more people killed by terroist attacks. If fact the Democrat party today might just as well be a branch of ISIS as they wear the same uniform when protesting. And if you just happen to be in wrong place your assaulted. They think nothing about burning looting other peoples property. This is your country as well as mine. I voted President TRUMP and I support him 100% . But the Democrats and Senater Kaine prefer to Riot, Block Highways, Burn Property, Assault people. This is what you Democrats want for a country.
