  •  The "outrage" wasn't focused so much (0+ / 0-)

    on Google's honoring of Caesar Chavez, as much as it was focused on Google not noting that today is Easter.

    The Glenn Beck crowd sees Google proclaiming:

    Caesar Chavez's birthday is more important than Easter

    Which is also pretty trivial, but let' not make our opponents out to be more childish than they really are (which is plenty). This is the reality-based community, right?

    •  I figure most of them didn't know who Cesar (0+ / 0-)

      Chavez was - and still don't unless they read Google's blurb on him.

      Cesar Chavez' birthday is more important. Easter has no importance in my life.

      Honest to God I get so effin' sick of the enforced Christianity in what should be secular waters (I can tell you horror stories about working at an Air Force Base during the Gulf War).

      Funny  how the tighty-Righties didn't react this nastily all the other years Google never had an Easter doodle - of course this has NOTHING to do with the fact that this one honors a brown-skinned man with an Hispanic surname. Cue the "I'm not racist, but" racists.

      If any Christofascists are outraged at not having one of their religious festivals commemorated in a public place, they can start their own damn search-engine company. 'Course, that's gonna require them to learn SCIENCE and accept FACTs because computers are based on logic.
