    It’s the story of almost every American. We’re all immigrant stock. Wonder what the stoopid haters will have to say. Sigh.

    So you’ve got Anheuser Busch and Dale Earnhardt not in favor of discriminating against immigrants. I think Dick Cheney is on the same page too. Wow. That’s heavy artillery.

  4. Nice sentiment, but those are the ‘right’ kind of immigrants, from a country that produced the ‘right’ kind of leader. Not impressed at all.

  6. I don’t know one end of a football from another, but I enjoy many of the ads.

    This is just beautiful.

  7. These commercials are done well ahead of time. Who on their staff was so fabulously prescient? Inquiring minds want to know!

  8. Fun facts, the St.Louis area was settled by many German immigrants, so much so that the area became the site of the nation’s largest Germanic Theater. This ad is a nice tribute to immigration, to theater, and brew. It’s also proof that timing is everything. Side note: Breitbart and Trump Trolls are starting a boycott which means that in this case, this Bud’s for the resistance.

  9. @Cat & @Deb – In this day and age, perhaps the “right kind” – of immigrants, but very possibly not then. Irish, Italian, Eastern European and Mexican immigrants are among many people of different national origins who have faced resistance when coming to our shores. German Americans were considered highly suspicious during WWI. I for one am glad that here is yet another company standing up today for the best in American values. (BTW, Budweiser is now part of Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV, headquartered in Belgium, which now holds more than a quarter of the global market share for beer.) They can still do very well if the Trumpistas mount a boycott of Budweiser products, thank you.

  10. Resistance Is NOT futile!
    Remember my Nana telling me what the Irish in NYC went through in the late 1800- 1900.

    Asians have fared no better. Chinese immigrants have been treated very badly in the US. Do not forget “Yellow Peril.” Do not forget the Chinese Exclusion Acts, which were not repealed until 1943. Do not forget the Japanese internment camps. We must do better. Resistance to evil is never futile.

    Wonderful ad! And a great shot of the Clydesdales. The mangled apricot hellbeast will probably tweet his tiny fingers to the bone ranting. And his approval drops lower and lower. Don’t remember any president with lower approval rating so early in his term. Wonder if he can get to negative numbers.

    Whoever their ad agency is, we need to hire them for 2018 campaigns.
    Almost makes me want to drink beer, just to show my support.

    Proof that the reactionary Busch family sold-off the brand.

    @UmptyDump#9- UD thanks for pointing out that AB is now owned by a European concern. I had hoped that when Inbev took over the quality of their product would improve. It did not and the main reason the tRUMPfistas will not boycott is that it is America’s number one beer, despite the fact they IMO, make and market swill. A long-time friend of mine( beer snob,as am I, and home-brewer) once told me to never go for a beer through which you could easily read a newspaper. It’s been good advice. AB markets, through their Michelob brand a beer called Amber Bock a darkish beer, not a true bock, but palatable, just the same. Sounds like St.Louis was settled by much the same kind of folk who settled Milwaukee. which BTW, is the home of Harley. Another long-time friend-with whom I drank much beer and who habitually wore the number one plate in Colorado amateur motorcycle road-racing, was of the opinion that Harley’s were just over-priced,over-loud, over-chromed,over-stuffed chairs with handlebars and once rendered the opinion that the main reasons people rode them, was to display their affluence, and because they were afraid of real motorcycles.
    I’m somewhat comforted by the fact that another of the German-American brewers Coors is now principally-owned by a Canadian firm, Molson, hasn’t resulted in any improvement of their product, either.But the tRUMPfistas will not boycott them either, and for the same reasons.

  16. I guess old man Frederick Trump was just hatched in America somewhere ‘long side the road which is what we said in high school about those now designated as “incompletely socialized”

  17. Ben Franklin said that those damn Germans were coming over here, sending their stupidest people, and they wanted everything in German so that soon you won’t even be able to find signs or do business in English, and they won’t even fight for the country once they get here.
