Why Are Some Conservatives So Insecure About The Google Logo?
Today is the 66th anniversary of D-Day so, of course there’s a conservative complaining that Google isn’t commemorating it appropriately:
Last year on June 6th Google celebrated the 25th birthday of Tetris:
On June 6th the year before that, Google recognized the birthday of Spanish painter Diego Velasquez:
But today, June 6, 2010… nothing:
Google is purposefully ignoring a big event, aren’t they?
That’s from Doug Powers, a guest blogger on Michelle Malkin’s site.
We see this at almost every major holiday now, people on the right complaining because they don’t think Google is appropriately memorializing the holiday. Just last week in fact, James noted the ridiculousness of some bloggers who were apparently offended at the way Google choose to mark Memorial Day.
And now we get a snarky little comment because Google isn’t marking the 66th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy. It’s really quite stupid when you think about it. Are the people who complain about this kind of stuff so insecure in their own patriotism that they need to have it validated by a web site ? Moreover, if D-Day is now a mandatory Google-Must-Acknowledge day what about all the other historic battles that America has fought or, since Google is an international company, the history battles that other nations have fought ?
There are times to be outraged and there are times when your outrage is just profoundly silly. Guess which category this “controversy” falls in.
