Mika To Google On Chavez-Over-Easter Choice: Admit You 'Screwed Up'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 04/01/2013 5:08:04 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

That Mika Brzezinski is a dyed-in-the-wool liberal is well-known. Less publicized: the Morning Joe host is also a person of faith with traditional views on a number of subjects.

So it actually shouldn't come as a great surprise that Brzezinski sided with those criticizing Google for its choice of devoting its homepage doodle yesterday to celebrating the birthday of Cesar Chavez, rather than honoring Easter. Said Mika on today's Morning Joe: "how about a statement one day that just says: 'we screwed up'?"

Who pays attention to Google doodles anyway? Google produces nothing of value. If it disappeared tomorrow, it would make no difference to the world.

I looked on the Google site and it showed they in fact have had an Easter doodle. So, what’s all the hubbub? Are they supposed to ignore all non-Christians all the time?

I’m so glad ignored a Christian holiday - again!

I’ve been meaning to change over to bing or duckduckgo.

Google is an evil site. They monitor your searches and sell the information. Just go to google and search for a hotel in Orlando. Bang - you’ll start getting pop-ups from travel companies. Or type in bankruptcy and foreclosures. Whatever you search for, by the time the sun sets, every marketing company will know your personal information.

What I find most interesting about all these liberal company leaders and RAT supporting companies, is that if their idols were to be in charge, the very companies that they invented would not be allowed to exist because of the lack of control that the dictator would want to have over it, but the founder would not want to give up that very control because of “freedom of speech”. Am I missing something on this?

I would speculate that as atheists, Google sees nothing wrong.

There is now a spirit at work in this country that is openly and actively agitating an anti-Christ message. Google’s action demonstrates this.

Really? So the entire world saw the screenshot in post #1 but you saw an Easter doodle. Interesting.

The Easter doodle wasn’t this year, obviously, but Google has doodled Easter in the past. You can look it up. I just don’t understand why so many are allowing their feelings to be hurt over nothing.

I suppose we could hope that Google went with their April Fools plans one day early?

Being in California they get a day off for Cesar Chavev. They don't get one off for Easter. So maybe they're just showing their appreciation?

If Google wanted to stay out of any religious controversy they should hove stuck with their original Logo

But to put Cesar Chavez (who???) over Easter was a STUPID STUPID STUPID move.

They screwed up by dropping the veil.

Commies (like Mika) know that they can only advance their cause under cover.

If you go to Google’s website, you can see all of the doodles they have ever posted. There was one for Easter a few years ago. Just search for Easter when you get there. It shows two colored eggs for the Os. Now, I’ll bet those with extremely thin dermis will say, “See, they only showed secular things, not religious ones”. So, I’ll have to conclude that what a wise person told me long ago is true. He said, “When one goes looking for trouble, he always finds it”.

If you go to Bing’s website, you’ll see better doodles, and a “top of the news” bit.

Bing is far more informative.

I may never use Google again. I’m series.

I believe Google doesn’t do religious holidays ... when was the last Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu doodle shown in the United States?
