Dr. King was assassinated by a conspiracy of federal agents and the Memphis Police Department, not James Earl Ray.

There was something undeniably strange about Bob Dylan asking us if there’s anything more American than America, against a backdrop of his music and images of James Dean, kids playing baseball, cheerleaders, and a dissatisfied man getting coffee at a diner. It wasn’t weird because it was Bob Dylan in a commercial; the unsettling thing was that it found him abandoning a principle that he not only once espoused, but managed to instill in his fans. 
However you look at it, Bob Dylan is now on the payroll of the very people he so famously decried, leaving us to wonder — once again — whether the values that made him a legend still mean anything to him at all.

The Problem With Bob Dylan Shilling for Chrysler

Oh my god the dude did a victoria’s secret commercial a couple years ago, he stole house of the rising sun, jesus christ let’s stop talking about dylan it’s 2014, we live in the future, and we’re still talking about your dad’s favorite folk singer. 

what’s more american than abandoning your principles the instant someone waves a check in your face

it’s funny cuz most y’all assume Bob Dylan ever had values worth a damn in the first place
(n.b.: the only reason I even saw this god-awful chain is cuz I’m on a computer without my Tumblr-savior that blocks all posts w/ “Bob Dylan” in them)

To date, there have been a total of 179 major human rights violations of Coca-Cola’s workers, including 9 murders. Family members of union activists have been abducted and torturedUnion members have been fired for attending union meetings. The company has pressured workers to resign their union membership and contractual rights, and fired workers who refused to do so.Most troubling to the delegation were the persistent allegations that paramilitary violence against workers was done with the knowledge of and likely under the direction of company managers. The physical access that paramilitaries have had to Coca-Cola bottling plants is impossible without company knowledge and/or tacit approval  #AmericaIsBeautiful

Coke is as America as they come.
