Gabby Douglas just captured America's hearts with a stirring victory as women's gymnastics all-around gold medalist at the Summer Olympics in London.
Despite this, George Stephanopoulos on ABC's This Week Sunday actually botched her name calling her Gabby Daniels (video follows with transcript and commentary):
George Stephanopoulos Botches Olympics Sweetheart Gabby Douglas's Last Name - Daniels?
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Overall medal count right now, neck and neck. Gold medals, US over China 27 to 25. That's on the gold medals. Tied in overall medals, 55 each with China. Van, let me go to you, your best moment of the week.
VAN JONES: Watching Gabby's mom.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Gabby Daniels.
JONES: Gabby Daniels' mom break down in tears. You know the story. Here is this kid, she grew up in poverty, she never (inaudible). Her mom has to send Gabby away to a family she doesn't know. That family takes her in. She's mothering her kid by Skype. And she shows up at the Olympics, that little girl gets the gold medal. That's America. We're one family. Color doesn't matter. It's having that common goal.
STEPHANOPOULOS: And that is America. She's now on the cover of the corn flakes box. Steven Rattner.
STEVEN RATTNER: I was actually going to say the same thing. You know, when you watch these young kids, it's so amazing to see how hard they try, the stress (ph), the way they perform, but when you see someone like Gabby come from where she came and what she gave up and what she had to do to succeed was really quite amazing.
Her father is also a Staff Sergeant in the Air Force. Veteran of deployments in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
Perhaps he was thinking of Jack Daniels.
NBC has been running ads for that show for quite some time. What does a monkey doing gymnastics have to do with Douglas?
simply look on Drudge
Besides, she didn't achieve anything.
whatever the guy with the biggest megaphone wants it to mean.
More like Black Daniels....
ABC... anything BUT class!!!
Never could figure how ole steffi made it to TV but... can surely see why he shouldn’t have.
Thanks to her dad too for his service. GO AIR FORCE!!!
BUT, he remembers to mention her race repeatedly. That was the point of the story, after all.
If one wants to see racism everywhere, one will see racism everywhere.
Blacks today look at everything through a prism of race. They don’t leave home without the race card.
It's the same thing as saying opposition to Bambi's Marxist, destructive policies is racist.
It's somewhat fun to watch a network who has excelled at this ridiculous "racist" meme get it thrown back at them in spades.........
oops, did it again
see msg 6 as well.
I see Gabby Douglas and I say, "That is a fine young woman who has put in the hard work to really excel at her sport."
I see a monkey doing gymnastics and I say, "Nice monkey."
A Liberal sees Gabby Douglas and says, "Black people look like monkeys."
A Liberal sees a monkey doing gymnastics and says, "Black people look like monkeys."
And we're considered the party with a "race problem"???
I watched the whole gymnastics event that was televised and I probably saw the monkey doing gymnastics and it never entered my head to equate the two. What is wrong with people?
As long as there is money to be made by creating racism where none exists, this crap will continue to happen. As Booker T Washington basically said, race hustlers “don’t want the patient to get well.”
Gabby did not grow up in poverty! Where did they get that?
Well said, friend.
If that isn’t racist, then I don’t know what is. Coming from them it’s not surprising though
Liberals believe that all black people are incapable of success. Therefore, all black people grow up in poverty -- but in some cases, a nice white Liberal comes along and lifts them up out of poverty. But, clearly, they all start out impoverished.
Besides, she didn't achieve anything.
nbc hates white hetero males, not blacks...
Liberals? There were freepers writing that she overcame the obstacles that her "brothers & sisters" are too lazy to.
Did he mention her muslim,,,,uh,,,er,,,uh,,,,Christian faith?
Money to be made, or VOTES to be garnered....
Booker T. got it right, absolutely. Not to mention that Frederick Douglass did too.
The main racists these days appear to be the "race hustlers," like the Reverends Jackson and Sharpton, who evidently do not believe that Black persons can function successfully in our society without a whole lot of help/tax subsidies from "Whitey."
Against all evidence. American Blacks who have divested themselves of "the Plantation Mentality" (so assiduously cultivated by the Left) do very well here, indeed.
I have much more faith in the ability of Black Americans to succeed in living a free and prosperous life than these two creeps do.
The fact that these two hold themselves out as Christians is especially galling to me.

Jamie and I were in a Starbucks in Olympic City this evening.Jamie started sharing with an African American man sitting beside us!It turned out to be Gabby’s uncle.We shared the Lord and ministered to him and Gabby’s father Timothy who returned in a few minutes.They both said they loved the Lord but the mom and dad(Timothy) are not together and are going through a possible divorce.We prayed with them and ask the Lord for healing for the relationship!Please keep the family in prayer!With all the Joy the family is being hit hard by the enemy.God always seems to direct footsteps!Thanks for your prayers!
“I give all the glory to God, she said. It’s kind of a win-win situation. The glory goes up to Him and the blessings fall down on me. - Gabby Douglas
As pointed out previously, Journalism students are FAR from being the best or the brightest, especially those that have a leftist ax to grind like Georgie.
It sounds good. You know liberals don’t care about facts. They make up their own.
Why is that black racist Communist Van Jones doing on a news show?
He was on MSNBC on Friday on Scarborough’s show.
p.s.: In order to avoid misunderstanding, by "these two" I did not mean to signify either Booker T. Washington or Frederick Douglass the latter of whom I regard particularly as a man of towering genius. I was pointing my finger at Jackson and Sharpton, and all their enablers and codependents.
Just wanted to be clear about that.
If they do find out a criminal is black, they always report the source has told them the person is black, so they can hang the source if they have to, they were just passing what they were told, along.
Don’t care too much if they report a potential criminal is white. Then they get to get all giggly and call up Sharpton and Jesse to discuss how all whites are like this.
That is why he’s called George Stepinawfulstuff!
Perhaps he doesn’t know Jack $h!t!
It was a wholesome story with no negative tie-in to the Tea Party, so there’s no need to be precise about the name...
Thank you for sharing your insights, dearest sister in Christ!
