Islamic Republic incompetence watch

Potkin Azarmehr notes:

The state sponsored slogan is Ayatollah Khomeini’s famous saying “America can not do a damn thing” but on the 33rd anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution, the slogan is translated as ‘America Can Do No Wrong’

The local Baseej must have used Google translator. It is exactly how Google translator, mistranslates the phrase…

Actually I believe the sign says “American Can Do No Wrong,” but that’s the least of it

Personally, I would not want to be the Baseeji who made this particular mistake. But I suppose he could argue in his defense that, after all, the founders of Google, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, are halachically, um, Zionists.
