Happy Easter: Google Celebrates Cesar Chavez's Birth
Breitbart ^ | 3/31/2013 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 03/30/2013 11:25:27 PM PDT by UnwashedPeasant

March 31 marks the birthday of National Farm Workers Association (later United Farm Workers) co-founder Cesar Chavez. Chavez, who was trained by Saul Alinsky in the tactics of community organizing, has become a cult figure in California due to his organization of agricultural workers. March 31 also happens to be another important date this year: Easter. So, naturally, Google’s current logo features a graphic of Chavez’s face, rather than anything having to do with Easter.

Clearly. Google is a Marxist anti-Christian company.

The only statement they need to make is for their investors.

And their market cap is right around a quarter trillion dollars.

The stock is trading at $800 a share.

On Monday, will see what impact their decision to ignore Easter has on their stock price.

I do not use Google search engine. I use ixquick.

I do not have an Android (Google) appliance.

I recommend that any conservative should find alternatives to anything Google.

How do I remove a background, so it’s just blank? While I love the festive easter wallpaper, I don’t know if I can deal with the images on a daily basis.

I'm surprised that Chavez' birthday hasn't been declared a national holiday by now to pander to the hispanic vote.

Create a short cut on your desk top using this:

Open the net with that short cut and it will take you to news/activism, avoiding the “Everything” at F.R., if you’re so inclined.

It looks to me like Google is trying to annoy Christians on purpose just to see how many buttons they can push. Their dumbest publicity stunt ever. Some moonbat’s head is probably going to roll over this one.

Google has done seasonally appropriate themes in the past such as this one:

They want to make a statement? How about we respond by dropping them. Unfortunately, too many have been sucked into their gmail and other features universe. Better to have no theme than to place the image of a socialist on their search engine .... on his 86th? birthday!

I hope Cinco de Mayo is. lol. At least that would be a decent celebration. We will have a hispanic national holiday someday and I hope it is that day. Certainly not Chavez’ birthday. Although since we don’t get a day off for Easter, and we don’t have a day off from President’s Day to Memorial Day. Some day in between would be nice. lol. But not Cesar Chavez for goodness sakes.

I concur. Ixquick is a good alternative for searching. But, do you know of a good alternative for Maps and Videos (Youtube)?

Just another thing in history that has been reported wrong. I was there and had to live through it.

The workers never wanted to join Chavez. They liked sending their money home to family. They sure as hell didn't want to give any of it to that thug!

Ah, but the thug's minion's would follow the workers from the fields to where they were living. Tractor tires were slashed nightly as well as other damage to property of the local farmers. The workers were threatened with their wives and daughters being beaten, raped, and killed. THAT is the only way Chavez got any workers to join him. It was scary in our little town until Chavez's crew finally slashed the tractor tires of the wrong farmer.... a Japanese farmer. That brave man called the Fresno Bee and the local tv station. He yelled discrimination at the top of his lungs. All the local farmers backed him up and help protect his property at night. It was a pre planned defense hatched by all the town's farmers.

The thugs then ran out of town and left us alone when they couldn't handle the bad press!.

On Monday, will see what impact their decision to ignore Easter has on their stock price.

I hate to tell you, but it will be none. They have these controversies all the time and it has never done a thing for stock price. The capitalization of their stock means average buyers, even massing together, couldn't impact it. Too many institutions own millions of shares and they look at one thing only, bottom line performance. Google, no matter how much we hate them, is going up in the near term. (not saying there won't be ups and downs, happens with all stocks, but nothing that will send a message).

Cesar Chavez was a devout Catholic. He would be offended by Google’s using his name to ignore the day of the resurrection.

Google has no respect for the man or for Christians.

The best way to make sport of the liberal’s embrace of Chavez is to point out how much he bitterly hated illegal aliens, and how his followers would brawl with Mexican citizens, to drive them off farmer’s fields, since they would work cheaper than UFW unionists.

>>the day of the resurrection.

Every day is (or should be) the day of the resurrection despite whatever plumage the syncretist parrots on the temple steps have glued to their state-established vestigial calendar.

One should always indulgently try to put the best possible construction on things, even when it means polishing a road apple.
