The Google "Doodle" has become a staple of the search engine's official website. Almost daily, the top of the page will feature an animation or a static image that changes the typical Google logo into something reflective of a day or person being celebrated. To find out more about whomever the search giant is celebrating, one can simply click the Doodle.
Because Google is run by progressives, Doodles never feature conservative icons. Instead, they frequently highlight individuals who have advanced the progressive agenda in one way or another.
Exhibit (A): On May 19, 2016, Google honored Yuri Kochiyama. Kochiyama and her family were sent to an internment camp in California in the 1940's simply because they were Japanese. This experience fueled her lifelong angst against the United States.
As reported in The Washington Post:
In the final years of her life, Kochiyama...expressed admiration for Osama bin Laden. Kochiyama told a reporter with the Los Angeles Indymedia that she considered bin Laden a freedom fighter, akin to Che Guevara, Patrice Lumumba and Fidel Castro.
She also supported cop killers Mumia Abu-Jamal and Assata Shakur.
This is an extreme example. However, it shows that Google has no qualms about celebrating anyone, so long as they advanced a progressive narrative.
The Google Doodle for Friday, June 2, 2017, is the gay pride flag — more specifically, the man who created it, Gilbert Baker, who passed away earlier this year. Baker, the rainbow Betsy Ross, designed flags for the 1984 Democratic National Convention. He also worked on many other projects.
The Advocate writes:
Despite his success and recognition as a preeminent designer of flags, Baker never stopped working on his [rainbow] flag. His commitment to its evolution took him to New York City in 1994, where he designed a record-breaking mile-long rainbow for the 25th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. In 2003, for the 25th anniversary of the flag’s design, he broke another world’s record when he created a flag that spanned from sea to sea — from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean in Key West, according to his site.
Another day, another progressive dollar. Google is alienating a portion of its user base by only celebrating liberal activists. Would Google ever dare to honor the late conservative economist Milton Friedman on his birthday? Doubtful. Despite his profound impact on the conservative movement, come July 31st (Friedman's birthday), don't expect to see a Doodle celebrating his achievements.
