Whoops! Trump’s “My African American”…Isn’t

Looks like the Underground Railroad has claimed another one from the Trump Plantation.

Cheadle, a Republican candidate in a California congressional race, said he was using a “Veterans For Trump” sign to shield his head from the sun…

Trump’s ‘my African-American’ admits ‘I am not a Trump supporter’

Gregory Cheadle aka Trump's "My African-American"  (Photo: Facebook)A California congressional candidate Gregory Cheadle might be an anti-government Tea Party member, but don’t call him a Trump supporter.

In a weekend interview with NPR, Cheadle admitted that he was holding the “Veterans for Trump” sign, not as support, but rather, to block the bright sun at the outdoor rally.

Trump singled Cheadle out at the California rally Friday, touching off a storm of criticism for placing ownership on the man when Trump called him “my African-American.” In the interviews that followed, Cheadle graciously accepted the fame and honor of the attention, but it was the most recent one where he admitted he’s not actually a supporter.

“Trump talked about the racism, the stereotypical racism targeted against black men by bringing that incident out,” Cheadle said. “He said the people near where the incident took place were about to jump on the black man because they thought he was a protester when in reality he was a supporter.”

He explained he wasn’t offended by Trump’s statement because the presumptive GOP nominee was speaking positively about black people prior to singling him out. “People around me were laughing [at the fact] that he noticed me and everybody was happy. It was a jovial thing.”

“Had he said, ‘here’s my African American friend’ or ‘my African American supporter’ or something like that, then there would be less ambiguity,” Cheadle said.

“I am not a Trump supporter,” he continued. “I went to go hear Donald Trump because I have an open mind.”

He further said that he’s not tied to any particular party, despite being registered as a Republican candidate for the first congressional district.

Another Republican Gaffe on Race

When it comes to discussing race – Republicans are the Keystone Cops of invariably putting their feet firmly in their mouths…

Tea Party Republicans

GOP Claims Racism Is Over In Misguided Rosa Parks Tribute 

On Sunday, the Republican National Committee tweeted out an ill-advised tribute to civil rights icon Rosa Parks, praising the late activist for “her role in ending racism.”

RNC @GOP

Today we remember Rosa Parks’ bold stand and her role in ending racism. pic.twitter.com/uxIj1QmtkU

The message was widely mocked by Twitter users who pointed out that the end of racism was news to them…

The RNC did correct their Tweet later with:

Previous tweet should have read “Today we remember Rosa Parks’ bold stand and her role in fighting to end racism.”

Some of these guys spend way to much time listening to the clowns in their Tea Party wing, and sometimes that message leaks through.

Might just be a good idea for the RNC to not say anything to anybody about race as they invariably seem to either muff it, or say something truly offensive…

Even when they don’t mean to.

Amercicans for Mitt!

ConOne of many images circulating Twitter abusing the Amercia gaffe.servatism will make you stupid!

Need simple incontrovertible proof?

Willard’s attempt at a viral WEB campaign.

Oosp: Romney’s New App Misspells ‘America’

There are typos, and then there are typos, and then there’s the gift Mitt Romney just handed his online detractors. Romney’s campaign just launched an app that was supposed to let people show their support by taking pictures, overlaying stirring messages on them, like “American Greatness” or “I’m a Mom for Mitt,” and then sharing them on social media with the message, “I’m With Mitt,” Mashable explains. The problem? One of the banners reads, “A BETTER AMERCIA.”

Yeah, there was no chance this wouldn’t instantly become a meme. People who we suspect are not Romney supporters have been feverishly snapping shots of dictionaries, spelling bee participants, toilets, and more, with the “AMERCIA” banner over them, and a Tumblr has cropped up to show off the best of them. Twitter is abuzz with mockery like, “Will Mitt Romney apologize for Amercia?” and “AMERCIA TEH BUETIFLU.” The campaign tells the Washington Post that it’s submitted a fix for the app to Apple.

There is even a Tubmlr that has been started on the gaffe.

BTx3’s favs?

China Tiangong-1 Launch Animation Set to “America the Beautiful”

Somebody over there in China goofed on this one, setting the background music of the video animation of the Launch to America the Beautiful.
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Rocket’s red glaring error: China sets space launch to America the Beautiful

The lift-off was flawless. The orbit immaculate. But while China‘s leaders were celebrating the triumphant launch of Tiangong-1 space lab on Thursday, viewers of state television footage were treated to a bizarre choice of soundtrack: America the Beautiful.

To mark the launch, the Chinese space agency and China Central Television (CCTV) released aproud animation, set to rousing orchestral strains, of the “Heavenly Palace” thrusting skyward, lofting above the Earth and docking with a Shenzou crew capsule.

The only problem being that the backing music in question is America the Beautiful – more or less an unofficial national anthem of the United States. The Guardian spotted the blunder after picking up the video from the Reuters news agency while covering the launch.

America the Beautiful, which was composed by a New York church organist in 1882, has long been a favourite of US patriots. It has been proposed as the national hymn and a replacement for The Star-Spangled Banner as anthem.

It could hardly be more different from the music associated with the launch of China’s first rocket in 1970. That satellite transmitted the Cultural Revolution anthem, The East is Red, extolling the virtues of the Communist party and Chairman Mao.

The choice of soundtrack for the Tiangong launch raised several questions. Is this the work of an idealist seeking to usher in a new era of transPacific cooperation, a nationalist who wants to colonise American culture as well as outer space, or simply a propaganda gaffe?
