Professional Neurotics Fulfill Daily Outrage Quota

Cesar Salud!

Cesar Chavez dropped into Our Exceptional Fallen World on this date in 1927, prompting Google to observe his memory with a Doodle, which is the highest honor that can be bestowed on a mortal.

But since today also marks the official observance of the World’s Most Famous Premature Autopsy, well…

  • Twitchy: “While two billion Christians around the world celebrate Easter Sunday on this 31st day of March, Google is using its famous ‘Doodle’ search logo art to mark the birth of left-wing labor leader Cesar Chavez.”
  • Instapundit: “The timing of latest in-your-face politically correct homepage is oddly appropriate. As Dennis Prager has written, ‘You cannot understand the Left if you do not understand that leftism is a religion.’”
  • Malkin: “Put on your shocked faces: Google celebrates Easter by honoring…Cesar Chavez.”
  • Vox Day: “While it is obviously intended as some sort of stupid snub to Christians, Google is only managing to look petty and underline the importance of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

Amateurs, all of them. It takes a professional to step up to the plate and reveal the Shocking! Conspiracy! that underlies the abomination:

President Barack Obama released a statement in 2011 proclaiming March 31 “Cesar Chavez Day,” declaring, “I call upon all Americans to observe this day with appropriate service, community, and educational programs to honor Cesar Chavez’s enduring legacy.”

Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt was an informal adviser to both of President Obama’s presidential campaigns, a member of the Obama White House transition team in 2009 and a onetime prospect for an Obama Cabinet post during the president’s second term.

Come down and claim your prize, Daily Caller! We’ve hidden it in the grass, next to a pile of dogshit.


Hey wingnuts, we already “celebrated” “Let’s fuck up Iraq, Kill Hundreds of thousands of people and Spend 2 Trillion On a War that Never Should Have Happened” Day. Not everyday has to be about what you believe in. Narcissistic shitheads.

Apparently the google doodle marks an indignant evangelical right wing shift from Google to Bing… because… umm… Bing has pictures of Easter eggs. Because – I’m guessing now – Easter eggs delivered by a giant imaginary rabbit have more to do with Jesus than a guy who was trying to help poor migrant farm workers.

This time of year I lean more to my Jewish half.

It’s just simpler and easier to understand.

Happy Passover.

@libertarian tool: Can’t wait until they learn who programs their Android phones.

Heh, the even better one is all the wingnuts on Twitter that can’t tell the difference between Cesar Chavez and *Hugo* Chavez. Truly the gang that couldn’t hate straight.

@al2o3cr: The Hugo/Cesar mistake originates from Malkin’s Twitchy website, which was the first to fan the flames. But I’ve given up on mocking stupid tweets — with hundreds of millions of users, some percentage is always bound to be idiots.

@libertarian tool: No escape for me — Catholics on one side of the family, Lutherans on the other. I’m a one-man schism.

Why should this night be different from all other nights?

I go now to worship with my people. We shall view Judy in Easter Parade and deplore again her shaky vocal state for her comeback at the Palace. We shall visit again those performances when she was on pitch and those she was not. And kvell over her weight problems deciding, as always, to blame them on Louis B. Mayer. We love you, Judy! Christ is risen. Shalom.

@al2o3cr: Gang that couldn’t hate straight. +1 for excellence in quibbles.

You know, you think that after getting their asses handed to them by Hispanic voters in 2012, couple with Senator Don Young’s “wetback” comment, the right-wing douche brigade would lay low for a while before essentially proclaiming a prominent Hispanic labor leader the bastard child of Satan.

Damn. I missed a great opportunity to watch heads explode at the family gathering by not knowing about the significance of this date ahead of time.

@Serolf Divad:
They can’t. Much like the Scorpion in the parable “The Frog and The Scorpion”, they can’t help it.

@DElurker: Stinque is your all season insult source.
