Google has a long-standing tradition of coming up with cool homepage art or animation for almost every day of every year. Except Easter.
That’s right. The same Googlistas that have managed to commemorate such diverse events as the birthday of a far left activist, obscure events in social justice warrior (SJW) history, and non-western holidays, didn’t do anything special with their homepage for Easter 2017.
Conceivably it wouldn’t have been hard to have thought up something. The word “google” has o’s that could have been reimagined as eggs. Throw up some bunny ears behind the middle g and l and boom, Easter would have been commemorated.
Instead, Google decided that of the 365 days that together make up 2017, Sunday April 16 would be one of those days in which the Google homepage was left as is.
No doubt Earth and May Day will both be rendered with the maximum degree of SJW approved animation and strategic messaging. So will the birthday of some whacko activist nobody outside the borders of UC Berkeley has ever heard of.
Why not Easter?
The answer I think is one we are all way too familiar with. We all know that if Easter had something to do with Muhammad, or some non-western and non-white cultural experience, Google would have honored it. Of course it probably never dawned on the know-it-alls responsible for Google homepage content that the events we commemorate starting with Good Friday and finishing on Easter Sunday occurred in a non-western and non-white chunk of the world.
That’s right. Back then, the part of the world we today call the middle east was populated by non-white, non-western people. Which makes the story of Christ one the left ought to be enamored with. Think about it. Roman imperialists, the representation of all things white and western in the ancient world, pursued and executed a revolutionary Semitic man who represented an insurgent threat to the existing socio-political order in the Roman empire. Isn’t the left supposed to be all about sticking it to the man, ancient Roman man or otherwise?
Then again, maybe it’s a good thing Google didn’t bother to do anything special for Easter. For that I’ll give Google credit. They stuck to their guns and towed the party line while most liberals didn’t this Easter weekend.
Cultural appropriation, don’t you know. Had Google done something special for Easter that would have been cultural appropriation – kind of like how it’s cultural appropriation when liberals take time off for Christmas or turn Easter into an extended holiday weekend. Liberals have nothing but derision for the Christian faith. Rare though is the liberal that won’t hitch their wagon to the Christian Church and enjoy the benefits associated with celebration of Christian holidays.
Rather than steal from a culture Google’s know-it-alls hate, they instead decided to wear their heart on their homepage and treat Easter as if it were just another Sunday. Maybe that’s better than seeing some acknowledgement of Easter by Google and knowing it was a lie designed to pander towards a religion they are too bigoted, intolerant, and exclusive to accept.
