(Or: Pushing The Narrative - Veteran's Day Edition)
Google's home page is the most popular page on the Internet.
I don't know what the committee looks like that decides what "Doodles" they should use on particular days or how they should look, but man oh man are they in the tank for the anti-white, anti-male, anti-American narrative.
- International Women's Day (invented by communists, look it up) gets a shout out every year. International Men's Day is coming up soon, and it will not get a Doodle. It never does, even on years when they don't do one for November 19th.
- November 9th is Carl Sagan's birthday, Spiro Agnew's birthday, and World Freedom Day. Who did they commemorate on Monday? Actress and feminist hero Hedy Lamarr. Sorry, Carl, maybe if you were a woman.
- May 5th marks the first time an American went into space. They chose to commemorate Strong Independent Woman Nelly Bly.
- Don't look for guys like Thomas Jefferson and James Madison to ever be commemorated. They haven't been and they won't be. They've actually never done a Doodle on Jefferson's birthday. This year, for the first time, they did one in the US on James Madison's. It commemorated a (female) English botanist and photographer.
- The September 11 attacks get the snub every year
- December 26th marks the fall of the Soviet Union. 300 million people who'd been living under totalitarianism for generations were free. The most murderous government in history was dissolved. A nuclear standoff that threatened the very existence of mankind, and the conflict that defined the history of second half of 20th century, was suddenly and unexpectedly over. Most significant day of the past 100 years? Maybe. Last 50? certainly. Something Google has ever felt worth commemorating? Nope.
These are just a few I noticed this year.
Today, for Veteran's Day, look at the Doodle. 80% of American veterans are white. 92% are male. In the Doodle, 7 vets are depicted. All four in the front row are either female or non-white. Two white males are depicted in the back row.
This is the most popular page on the Internet. Who is making these decisions? What do their instructions for pushing The Narrative look like? Are they that afraid of being called sexist or racist? Do they genuinely think white males (guys like Larry Page and Sergey Brin) can go straight to hell, or are they just instructed to pretend they do?
