On Easter Sunday, Google Celebrates . . . Cesar Chavez?!

By Debbie Schlussel

Even though I’m not a Christian, I recognize that today is Easter Sunday and have wished my Christian friends and readers a Happy Easter. But Google, on the other hand, is dissing and ignoring one of the world’s largest religions, and instead of recognizing Easter, has chosen to recognize the birthday of a long-dead, far-left, liberal labor organizer, Cesar Chavez. When I first went on Google today, I thought maybe I had discovered some new Christian leader I’d never heard of before. But when I clicked on the picture of the drawing of a particular man in today’s Google icon, it turned out it was Chavez (the drawing looks nothing like the guy).

But Chavez, co-founder of the United Farm Workers, wasn’t all that the far left wants him to be. On the one hand, while Chavez was a union leader and led hunger strikes, he was also a guy who was against illegal aliens (believing, correctly, that they drove down the wages of American workers), and he opposed radical Hispanic racist groups, like La Raza. He was also a devoutly religious Catholic, who would probably be ashamed that Google honored him instead of using some sort of Easter icon in its famous logo, today. It’s interesting, though, that Google–which is about the freedom of the internet (in some countries) and searching for information–honors Chavez, a man who stomped on those freedoms, purging anyone from the United Farm Workers who dissented or disagreed with him. A believer in democracy he was not, except when it benefited him.


The biggest thing of note, today, in the U.S. (the only place where Cesar Chavez is widely known) and around most of the world, is Easter. For Google to ignore that and choose to honor and highlight the birthday of a dead man, who is of far less significance, is a deliberate insult to Christians around the world–Christians who probably comprise Google’s largest user base.

And it’s yet another example of how the new media institutions in Western civilization seek to tear down the moral institutions, especially organized religion (other than Islam), that prop Western civilization up.

I feel less ignorant now, as I too didn’t know who the heck this guy was, or how he was relevant to Easter.

Thank you Debbie for posting this today! Sadly, the New Testament says it will get worse.

Hollywood on March 31, 2013 at 2:08 pm

Debbie, its another example of assault of the Christian holiday. The way he his drawn, he is drawn and painted in the style found on glass candles common with Catholics especially Hispanics. Google is trying to canonize this guy as a saint by putting his drawing on this Easter Sunday. Subtle but devious by Gaggle but not surprised.

I still never be ceased to be amazed when the local Hispanics think the local leftists care about them but in reality they are another minority group being used just like the lacks are.

Unfortunately, the local Hispanics fall for the dogma: leftist/progressive/Democrat=GOOD and rightist/conservative/Republican=BAD. I point out to the hispanics that many of their friends bash the Catholic Church and they 1) either deny it in the ostrich head in ground style or 2) that Republicans are worst because they are racists.

Yes, when I went to Google late last night, I the very same logo that you’re referring to Debbie, I didn’t think too much about UT, but since today is Easter, Google should’ve atleast had an Easter bunny for their logo for the entire day.

Mario, sorry to burst you’re bubble bro, but Easter was NOT a christian holiday from the get-go, it was originally a pagan holiday, but on Easter, many christians celebrate the hiliday for jesus’ alleged resurrection. Just like Halloween and Christmas were pagan holidays (also Mithra is a pagan holiday)!

    Sorry about my error in my last comment DS & everyone, I should’ve said at the beginning of my last message, ”I saw the very same logo that you’re referring to Debbie, I didn’t think too much about it”, forgive for my little error, typing on an I-Phone, and unfortunately, there’s not a edit button for this website on my I-Phone for me to correct on what I originally wrote.

    Sean R. on March 31, 2013 at 2:54 pm

      @ Sean R- If you are saying the physical day on the Gregorian calendar being the exact day as to when Jesus arose from the dead, I agree with you just as Christmas is not the day he was born. I understand that this day was used by the Church to coopt a pagan holiday in converting the non Christians into Christianity.

      I am talking about the day (no one is sure of the exact Day) that the rising of Jesus is the MOST important message of Christianity. My point of the Google using Cesar Chavez, is that I believe they are trying to undermind it by putting a human in place of a spiritual being. This is Googles way to downplay religion and emphasize the humanism of this holiday. Just like the extreme humanists aka communists say that there is nothing but this material world and one needs to live in the now. I maybe wrong but having read and seen things on media, I have noticed how religion is being attacked. Some subtlely and some in your face especially toward Christianity.

      Msrio on March 31, 2013 at 6:05 pm

        Actually Mario…you’re wrong about the dating of Jesus’ birth.

        If you are a Protestant or Evangelical…you don’t have the Early Church Fathers…but we Catholics do.

        Here’s some Early Church Fathers for ya’.

        Irenaeus (c. 130–202) viewed Christ’s conception as March 25 in association with the Passion, with the nativity nine months after on December 25. Hippolytus of Rome (170–235) may also have identified December 25 for the birth of Jesus and March 25 for the conception. Sextus Julius Africanus (c.160 – c.240) identified December 25, later to become the most widely accepted date of celebration, as the date Jesus’ birth in 221.
        (from Wikipedia)

        But let’s look to the New Testament, shall we? Is the date of Jesus’ birth hidden in the Scriptures?

        What do you know…it is!

        Scripture indeed supports the tradition that Jesus was born on, or around, December 25:

        1. John the Baptist’s father, the priest Zechariah, was serving in the sanctuary… (Luke 1:8-9) 

        2. The Sanctuary was a holy place (Lev. 16:3) in which incense was offered (Lev.16:12-13)…. Zechariah was offering incense (Luke 1:9)

        3. The priest had to be alone in the sanctuary during this time (Lev.16:17)… Zechariah was alone (Luke 1:10 says the “whole assembly was praying outside…”)

        4. This was to be observed on the 10th day of the 7th month (Day of Atonement, Lev.23:27). Also, the Feast of Booths began on the 15 day of the 7th month and ran for 7 days (Lev. 23:33-36). 

        5. If Zechariah was performing priestly duties related to either of these events, then he would have been alone in the sanctuary during the 7th month (Tishri = Sept/Oct)

        6. If we say this was late September, then John would have been conceived at that time, and born in late June. 

        7. John was 6 months older than Jesus (Luke 1:26, Luke 1:36). Jesus would then be born 6 months later than late June, meaning late December.

          FF, you reminded me that INDEED there are many secret messages in the Bible (I use secret for lack of a better word…).

          It’s important to study the bible from someone who is privy to those “codes”.

          Skunky on April 1, 2013 at 1:08 pm

          you need to know that Jews follow a different calendar than most of us do. Unless your links show the conversion of the jewish days into Gregorian days then anyone can say this day or that day by what is written on the Bible. Plus wikipedia may not be a source to refer since ANYONE can go there and add their two cents. If you can provide what ancient Hebrew and ancient Greek sources and translated by authoritative biblical scholars then you might have a point.

          Mario on April 2, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    Oh Christ, Sean, MUST we get the “hey listen to what I found out on the History Channel” lesson, as if every single Christian alive didn’t already know this from just about Day One of their faith? As shocking as you may find this, we all know that Jesus was not born on December 25. He wasn’t crucified on Good Friday. He didn’t rise on a Sunday morning. And yes, much of the early traditions of the Christian church grabbed onto pagan or Jewish customs and beliefs. Thank you so very much for enlightening us. By the way, did you know that David Bowie’s album “Aladdin Sane” can be read to mean “A Lad Insane?” Fascinating. Please tell us more.

    gmartinz on March 31, 2013 at 3:56 pm

      lol!

      DS_ROCKS! on March 31, 2013 at 5:39 pm

      The Christian church didn’t “latch onto” Jewish customs. Jewus was Jew and practiced all the customs and laws. His first followers were ALL Jews, including the Apostles. Any Jewish customs that remain in the Church of Constantine are due to this fact.

      Also, g, it may interest you to know that Martinez is almost always a Converso (N I won’t use that “m” word for converted Spanish Jews) name. That means your ancestors got to the Americas because Ferdinand and Isabella kicked them out for being Jews. Your a Jew too, bro.

      Italkit on April 1, 2013 at 12:07 pm

        Sorry that IS a typo albeit a curious one. I did mean to type “Jesus.”

        Italkit on April 1, 2013 at 12:09 pm

I wasn’t shocked, but was certainly angry.
Commie atheist bas***ds.

Michelle on March 31, 2013 at 3:29 pm

    “commie atheist bastards”? Seriously? They do nothing but reflect the prevalent stupidity of our country.

    They’re probably just a bunch of disaffected, spoiled, self-centered, punk-ass kids raised by similar parents who probably DO go to the Church of the Self-Righteous Narcissist every Sunday.

    Pray Hard on April 1, 2013 at 10:50 am

There are many (most?) television shows that mock Christianity and Judaism. None mock Islam.

Similarly, while shows will mock Asian culture, and make fun of Chinese and Japanese and Filipinos (all cultures which emphasize education and hard work), no one dare point out the fallacies of Arab culture.

Once the Leftists and Islamists wipe out the Jews, the Christians will be targeted (which is already happening in Islamic and Northern African countries).

Jonathan E. Grant on March 31, 2013 at 4:34 pm

Let’s hope no one gets on here and starts trying to argue with you Debbie because you said it with the accuracy of a lazer-guided missle.

Of course, we have to remember that the kids at Google didn’t grow up like you and I did. They grew up in the era of massive brain-washing from kindergarten through high school. Most of these youngsters are now full fledged Equality Cultists. Chavez and what he represents to them is far more important than the very foundation of Western civilization as we know it, er… as we used to know it.

On a side note, I witnessed the circus of lawyers and gays celebrating already how they think the SCOTUS is going to vote re homosexual marriage today. If this perversion of marriage passes, there will be nothing standing in the way for a brother and sister getting married or a father and his son getting married.

If prop 8 goes the way of the Homers then this country will be on its last leg before a righteous G-d passes judgement on it. So let it be done!!

Wild Jew man on March 31, 2013 at 4:56 pm

Jonathan,
Next to the Islamic civil wars that go on in countries like Syria, the next most interesting Alien vs Predator event is the wars b/w Communists and Muzzies.

There had been some pretty interesting contests. The biggest was the Soviets vs Afghans, and then, there were others, like the war b/w the Yemens in the 60s, the Chinese vs the Uyghars. But things like Muslim attacks on Gays in Europe, Gaza, Egypt and other such places just make it interesting to ponder what will happen to the Left as each of their constituencies, one by one, gets sacrificed by them at the alter of Islam. It’ll be like Martin Niemoller all over.

Unfortunately, Google is not the only one celebrating “Cesar Chavez day”.

Google is probably doing everything they can to promote open borders and illegal aliens, too. Google sucks.

RT on March 31, 2013 at 7:40 pm

Time to switch to Bing. Screw you Google!

Tig on March 31, 2013 at 9:08 pm

Yeah, like, you know, why miss a chance to promote contrived importance?

I think big corps do this just to see how far they can define reality for us before we explode in their faces.

Muslims are what, 2% or less of the population. One would think they were 98% of the population by the contrived attention they get.

I didn’t know WTF it was. I thought it was that Vietnamese guy who won the academy award for The Killing Fields a couple of decades ago.

Yeah, Cesar Chavez, that who I think of first on Easter.

Pray Hard on April 1, 2013 at 10:35 am

    “that’s”

    Pray Hard on April 1, 2013 at 10:36 am

    GREAT POST, Debbie! I’ve switched my search engine to YAHOO.

    (http://ca.yahoo.com/)

    “Yeah, Cesar Chavez, that who I think of first on Easter.”

    That LINE says it all for me. A perfect distillation.

    Fight back, Christians…remember what Mother Teresa said, when asked what the number one thing the Church needed in the world today was, she responded, “The Church needs fighters.”

    FORMER Fetus on April 1, 2013 at 12:06 pm

Google is an Obama supporter. According to Wiki, Obama had previously declared March 31st Chavez day. Google is just doing what the Pres asked the nation to do on March 31.

Visteo on April 1, 2013 at 10:45 am

When it was totally illegal for any American to do so, Cesar Chavez travelled via Mexico to Cuba and thence to Red China for his labor-must-occupy training. His “troops” being aliens without conscience who want to have a country but can’t seem to build one.

Springer on April 1, 2013 at 10:52 am

I will bet you the mortgage to the ranch that the techies responsible for what Google does with its Logo did not know the date was Easter.

Did not know.

/which says so much

Jack on April 1, 2013 at 11:16 am

Gooble is an absurd company. Also, Cesar Chavez was very, very anti-illegal alien during his life, as noted by Debbie. Only be removing the deceased man’s actual history could he be considered a suitable Lefist icon. Harvey Milk is another example of this sort of thing in California.

Worry01 on April 1, 2013 at 4:47 pm

Google really sickens me. I have not used their search engine in a long time. I wonder how many Mexicans they have on their payroll in Mountain View, California. If I was a bettin’ man, which I am not, I think it would be safe to say that the only Mexicans you would find at Google in Mountain View, are the ones that are sub-contracted to clean their toilets and make minimum wage or close to it. They are a bunch on phnoey-high- tech-liberal-dorks that cry diversity so long as it is not in their back yard.

Did I mention that I get robo calls from them all of the time in which they try to get me to buy advertising.

I urge everyone to use ixquick.com for a search engine.

A.S. on April 1, 2013 at 5:13 pm

I find it curious of course and I do know who Chavez was. We were taught the history of the united Fruit company and things of that era where America practiced the same ideology as Stalin but covered it in the usurious cloak of capitalism and progress…as long as it was in someone else’s country.
Today , in my country (Australia) I see the two largest grocery companies, Woolworth’s and Coles selling the Christian Hot Cross buns on Boxing day. I find that to be offensive in the extreme although I find the whole mystical concept of the resurrection to be so much nonsense. Now we are being bombarded by these same two companies with Happy Hanukah messages every year while being told we should be buying their goods to help celebrate.. Hummmph!!.

Aron B on April 1, 2013 at 6:06 pm

    Aron Boring, putting your very solipsistic prose aside, you should be whinging about Gillard’s boatloads and all the Mooooooslim rump-swabbing Australia is doing these days in lieu of being in high dudgeon about Hot Cross Buns and Chanukah goods.

    Just in case those in the know didn’t know that lately you’ve been hiding your REAL views (albeit, very boringly so perhaps they passed your boring posts by…) this post of yours shines the light on a tip-toe of the REAL Aron Boring.

    I don’t go up against people for nothing here. If I am having a go at somebody it is because of a GOOD reason. With apologies to Rush, “Don’t doubt me”.

    Skunky on April 1, 2013 at 7:38 pm

      Boxing Day?? It is a wonderful sight to see a grown man groveling in front of his betters on the day after Christmas for a handout. Carrying on the master-servant relationship is so edifying.

      Skunky, we should celebrate Empire Day on May 24th. That is a good date as any to kick this toothless and flea ridden miscreant to the curb.

      This should make things clearer Skunky: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQWPR9TM0Gk&list=RD0208BqaSuEE_w

        Skunky on April 2, 2013 at 12:08 pm

In the 1970’s, Chavez spoke out against the persecution of Soviet Jews who were being imprisoned on trumped up charges. That’s something that not many people know, but I do. I also knew his personal physician, who took care of him during hunger strikes. His physician was pretty liberal, but also a very dedicated supporter of Israel. I know that because I worked with him (the physician) on a few pro-Israel activities back in the early ’70’s, when I lived in California.

The Jewish community had asked Chavez for help on the Soviet Jewry crisis, and he responded. I know, because I was involved.
