Wasnt there a major outrage when Romney's iOS app misspelled a similar word?

Are you gonna give Obama the same bullshiat you gave Romney?

/Can we stop with this kind of bullshiat?

You see Romney is a member of the America-loving party Republican Party, where patriotism is paramount. Obama is just another soulless, commie, pinko who hates America and attempts every day to destroy it with gay marriage and abortion. Therefore when Romney misspells America thousands of Anglo-Saxon Americans cry out in shame. When Obama does it people think "There goes that Muslim again..."

It's in the synopsis at the top of the left screen cap. You may now be outraged.

I was hoping it had been spelled "Amercians," just for the trolling goodness.

Ho boy, Daily News. From the comments:

So it's all about the blacks now huh? What a bout the education for the rest of the children since it's always about "the children"? Obomba is continuing to build his army. Please oh please, lets get rid of this racist piece of turd. You can bet the the school books his little black minions will be learning from, won't teach the values of Dr. martin Luther King.

It's kind of refreshing how open and honest they have become now that they have the "Race Card" card to play.

Major outrage? No.
Much laughter because so much time was spent on a facebook app only to screw it up? Yes.

But, if you'd like to equate the amount of effort put in to an app vs a facebook post, go right ahead.

The left: Makes fun of the R-money team's typo and the humor is derived from the fact that the right's patriotism is so hollow and mindless. The typo has no effect on the candidate for whom a lefty will vote.

The right: Claims that the Obama team's typo is a symptom of the candidates hatred for the country. The typo reaffirms the feelings of righties/stupid people.
 
2012-07-27 12:30:56 PM
at least they didn't spell it Amerika.

Nope.

Notice how the president helpfully points out his staff's barely visible error?

Compare that to this disaster that DEFEATS THE ENTIRE PURPOSE OF THE APP.

Completely serious here. Being in the printing biz I can confidently say that the Romney logo was seen by dozens of people. Hopefully Romney himself since it's his image. No one caught that one. The White House FB post was probably typed out from a transcription and posted immediately by one person.

This is a totally stupid thing to get worked up about on either side but there is a slight difference here.

Hmm. Racist websites are not allowed on Fark, right? I know Stormfront links are verboten. We should report every link with racist comments in its comment section as being a racist website.

/But then where will the clicks outrage come from?

It's not just you. I read it, then re-read it, then peered at it intently in case my brain was just fixing things subconsciously. Maybe the guy reading the White House facebook page was drunk and/or cross-eyed.

And it's a goddamned shame. The Stormfront forums are hilarious. People that refuse to let their kids watch Sesame Street and shiat. Hilarious. I would try to troll them but I feel like they got awesome troll-dar over there and I wouldn't even make it to five posts.

Hopefully the Feds would buy the tired old, "someone of my best friends are black, including my girlfriend and half of my son," argument because that's all I got.

Trolling SF is very difficult but it can be done. First off you have to accept that they will only allow a fraction of your posts to show up. Often edited and always days after the conversation has moved on.

You also have to stay away from their typical topics. The talking points are too well memorized by every member.

But, once in a while you can lead the conversation in an unexpected direction. Take them slowly out of their protective bubble and before they know it they are unable to use premanufactured "facts". That's when the conversation ends abruptly.

I got a lot of mileage discussing one of their idiotic videos by the Turner Diary dude. Rather than waste my time with the content of the video itself I went after the soundtrack. (Some orchestral parts of Beauty and the Beast)

It was amusing watching them explain why they used the work of a gay composer.
