Samuel Adams Commercial ‘Misquotes’
Declaration of Independence, Irks Internet

Boston Magazine, by Eric Randall

Original Article

Posted By:TWConservative, 7/5/2013 8:02:26 PM

A little Fourth of July hangover story for you: a patriotic commercial for Samuel Adams beer has inspired the ire of internet commenters (really, what hasn’t?) for only partially quoting the Declaration of Independence. In the spot, an actor pours a Sam Adams as he says: "… Samuel Adams signed the Declaration of Independence. He believed that there was a better way to live. All men are created equal. They are endowed with certain unalienable rights. Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness …"

Comments:
Time to boycott Samuel Adams beer and hurt them where it counts ... in the pocketbook. More information regarding this fiasco can be found on The Blaze and Worldnet Daily, but Lucianne won´t allow links to those sites ?!?

I dunno...I had to read the article to see what the hubbub was all about. I´m not seeing what the big deal is. Is it particularly strange that a beer company would leave God out of their commercial?

C´mon folks. We have real issues in front of us. Let´s stay focused on the important stuff.

Misquoting our founding document no big deal? Especially since it was almost certainly intentional, and involved omitting mention of God, this is most certainly a big deal!

If our inalienable rights don´t come from God who do they come from? Well the State of course. Typical leftist mind set. If Samuel Adams beer has no time for God then I have no time for their beer. Best tasting beer in America but I won´t it buy any more too many other choices who haven´t dissed God.

And if he´d have mentioned the Creator to sell beer the same folks complaining would be complaining about that.

I can´t stomach misquotes of the Declaration of Independence any more than anyone else...but...in this case they were not quoting the Declaration.

They were stating what Samuel Adams, as a signer, believed presumably.

Sam believed all men were created equal and had certain unalienable rights.

I would assume that since it´s a beer commercial, one of the ways to "pursue happiness" is to have a Sam Adams.Perhaps they didn´t want to imply that God endorses beer drinking for everyone.

Again...directly misquoting with the specific purpose of leaving out references to "Our Creator" is wrong and people should rightly object.

This just doesn´t seem to rise to that level. Then again maybe I am being naïve.

For those low information people who have no clue of the significance of this I say you should Thank God for what the Founders, including Samuel Adams, gave you so you could have your beer. This was no oversight but is a politically correct cave in so "buh bye" Sam Adams beer!

It´s a teachable moment. Use it to make the point that unalienable rights do not come from government.

I´m not offended by this. I am offended people think govt is the source of all.

Politically correct would be to not quote the Founding Fathers or Founding Documents. This is being "progressive correct" by thumb in the eye.

My information is as high as anyone´s. The commercial was worded as the supposed thoughts of Sam Adams relative to the rights of Americans. It was not a quote of the Declaration of Independence. I don´t see any disrespect for the Declaration of Independence or for the founding fathers including Sam Adams. Nor do I see the omission of God, as the commercial was written, as ignoring His inclusion in the actual document.

I must thank the Samuel Adams beer company for calling attention to our Creator...by intentionally excising Him from a generally lame (but quite politically correct) beer commercial.

And thank you #1 for reminding us: "Let´s stay focused on the important stuff."

There is no more ´important stuff´ than God.

Yeah, God wants you to get all worked up over a commercial for a beer, named after a founder, paraphrasing the DoI....

Geez, the liberals have some of you just where they want you: "Look! A squirrel!" (while they welcome the UN and Russian military to police us...).

Yes, it is a beer commercial, but it was for SAM ADAMS - which is linking its product to a special event in MA and US history - not just any beer company.

They, of all people, should have been accurate.

Or they could have gone for self-parody such as Ben Franklin is supposed to have said - "It is a PUB if you can keep it"

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
