Public Shamming TWEETS OF PRIVILEGE: American Exceptionalism!

Last night was the 2013 MLB All-Star game. Ah, America’s pastime! Who doesn’t love a good baseball game? And what better way to open up America’s game then with a heartfelt rendition of ‘God Bless America’?

And…wait, a minute. Who is this guy coming out to sing God Bless AMERICA?

wow! Who is this unAmerican Spanish Mexican spic illegal foreigner terrorist singing ‘God Bless AMERICA’ at a game of baseball, our AMERICAN pastime?

Why, it’s New York born, United States citizen of Puerto Rican descent, Marc Anthony!
image
Look at this 100% American grammy award winning recording artist sing ‘God Bless AMERICA’ at the All-Star game. Absolutely disgusting. And the All-Star game was at Citi Field in NYC borough of Queens too! We can’t let this happen in Queens, the most ethnically diverse urban area in the world!

Spanish people!? Heartbreaking! We cannot let America become some sort of melting pot!
image
image
Yeah! Shouldn’t you be FROM America!? Like, sorry, New York City just doesn’t cut it.
image
image
image
Yeah, America! CLEAN. IT. UP. And “it" being anyone who LOOKS foreign!
image
image
But, Marc Anthony IS an American artist…
image
haha. Silly me. That doesn’t matter. HE MAKES A LIVING SINGING SONGS IN SPANISH. The devil’s language! And making a living from such a thing? A crime in the good ole’ U.S. of A!
image
And why get someone who makes money off of singing in some foreign language when you can get a true patriotic American…like Ke$ha!
image
image
image
Yeah! Mexicans, Castro, Cubans, Puerto Ricans, Marc Anthony…they’re all the same anyway!
image
image
image
"Marc Anthony? Unamerican! Marc Anthony is Spanish!"
And there lies the real issue. The fact that Marc Anthony is an American citizen born in the United States does not matter. The point here is someone who is “NOT LIKE US" (white males) can not be a REAL American!
image
You see. Marc Anthony is from New York…but he doesn’t LOOK like it. I assume the last time Josh here has been to New York was about 100 years ago. But, what is the world coming to now-a-days!
image
And you can see here again. Being of Puerto Rican descent means you’re not a TRUE American. I mean, what do you think? It isn’t like Puerto Rico’s a part of the United States or something!

But hey, at least there’s one racist out there who sees the irony in this all…
image
God Bless Spain Mexico Puerto Rico AMERICA! Let’s play ball!

Anthony responds.

Huff Post Latino Voices
Excerpt 
The New York-born singer of Puerto Rican descent touted his roots on "Live with Kelly and Michael" on Thursday after some people criticized his selection to sing "God Bless America" at this week's Major League Baseball All-Star Game, held in New York City.
In an interview, the Grammy-winning salsa star said that he heard people were questioning why a foreign-born person was singing the patriotic song. Anthony said he was born in New York and added: "You can't get more New York than me."
