My default search engine is Google and I use it quite often. I am aware of the Google higher ups and their political leanings and I disagree with them but I’m not usually a boycott person. Honestly, if I boycott everything I disagree with then I will live in a closet with nothing to eat or look at for the rest of my life.
Recently, however, the Google Doodle kept flashing at me every time I opened the browser. Eventually I clicked on the dumb thing, though I rarely do.
The Google Doodle for May 19th, 2016.
Clicking on the image I see this at the very top of the page:
“Yuri Kochiyama (河内山 百合 Kōchiyama Yuri, May 19, 1921 – June 1, 2014) was a Japanese American human rights activist. She is notable as one of the few prominent non-black black separatists. Influenced by Marxism, Maoism, and the thoughts of Malcolm X, she was an advocate for many revolutionary movements.”
“Influenced by Marxism, Maoism and the thoughts of Malcom X…” Interesting that Google would choose to put a Doodle up celebrating someone who admired murderers and thugs.
I don’t care if she was advocating for “equality,” the fact is, if you are influenced by communist dictators your idea of “equality” is obviously not the kind of equality Webster’s Dictionary defines.
I wonder when they’ll use Hitler as a Google Doodle. I would like to see that. I mean, if you’re using Yuri, then use Mao, right? Marx, anyone?
I see it like this: she uses Mao and Marx to justify her social activism. That’s the same as if I give you a donut and then tell you that Satan directed me to do it (assuming he actually DID tell me to do it and I’m not crazy). Are you going to take it? Or are you going to question the motive because Satan was the catalyst?
Think, people. Especially young people. Think.
