Wingnuts Actually Upset About Google Logo

Thank God there's CONTROVERSY about the Google logo for Veteran's Day. THERE IS A CRESCENT UP IN THAT PIECE. I mean it's not at all obviously the BOTTOM HALF OF THE LETTER "E" IN "GOOGLE." Also: why does Yahoo! hate veterans? Gosh we're such a busy country.

That "g" is masturbating.

Crescent? I thought it was the moon, which would have been worse since it would have signified the Dark Lord Satan.

Yes, Can we we finally return to the moon and blow it up. I'm so tired of the monthly taunts.

Whaddaya mean, "return?!" That was staged.

NominaStultorum (#1,638)

Whether or not it's the moon, it's certainly lunacy.

Also, I've been waiting years for some wingnut outcry about the crescents in the capital T's of the The New York Times banner. Did it happen and I missed it?

I used to know someone who refused to shop at Food Lion because of the lion in their logo- they believed it was the "mark of the beast" as told in biblical terms. Satan's own Stop-n-Shop!

@BadU: Wait a minute! There's a blurb at the end that states Liz Claiborne also worships Satan- where will God-fearing frumps get their suits and coordinates now?? IS CHICO'S NEXT IN THE RETAILERS FOR SATAN HOLOCAUST? Michael Phelps's mom is doomed.

They say the deals at Lane Bryant are legion.

How to sell this to wingnuts: As long as that flag keeps flying, the crescent is cockblocked.
How the wingnuts will respond: Republicans will denounce the silent e from the floor of Congress.

Imagine the outrage on Thanksgiving, when this filthy terrorist brings his evil terrorist symbolism to American dinner tables.

Wingnuts are obsessed with the Google doodle — always and for every occasion. I have no clue, except that Kathryn Jean Lopez seems to get her panties in quite the bunch over when one is and isn't deployed.

Also: the cloud looks like Judge Worm from The Wall.

I thought it was a cornicello.

Didn't they recently get upset about Ramadan or Diwali or some other pagan holiday being celebrated in the logo? Also: why hasn't someone invented a "Conservative Search Engine" yet (this would just be Google but it would automatically append "-gay -democrat -muslin" to every search, and the logo would be Ronald Reagan's ghost smiling down on Sarah Palin).

I am so stealing that idea. I am gonna be rich.

Why won't the wingnuts just make their own goddamn Google? I look forward to laughing hysterically.

petejayhawk (#1,249)

I hope it's soon, because the Conservapedia search engine just isn't cutting it for me.

Oh, at the paper I used to work for, the local seniors would fly off the handle if we missed commemorating any one of the multitude of days dedicated to veterans with a front-page story — not just Veteran's Day or Memorial Day or D-Day, but Victory Over Japan Day and all the rest.

And you just wanna go: YES, I AM NOT TRYING TO DIMINISH THE IMPORTANCE OF YOUR SACRIFICE, BUT ALL THE BITCHING SURE MAKES IT SEEM A LOT LESS SELFLESS.

My town built a new middle school a few years ago and named it after a local natural landmark. The local seniors howled because it wasn't called "Veterans Memorial Middle School." (It's not like they get no love – there is a large memorial in town center and parades/services on all the holidays, etc.)

Anyway, long story short, the town eventually went with "XX Middle School at Veterans Memorial Park." Those seniors got CLOUT, baby.

Straight to Canada with you two.

Bittersweet (#765)

Hey, if it were up to me every school and public building in my town would have "veterans" and "memorial" in its name. In fact, I'm now naming my house the Awesome Veterans Memorial Ranch House of Freedom and Liberty.

You jest, but historically speaking, this particularly tactic has yielded results.

Aloysius (#1,808)

It's a croissant. Google is a bunch of Frenchophiles.

"Was that what Google intended?" William Browning, Andrew Breitbart has a job for you.

KenWheaton (#401)

I'm not sure anyone's outraged yet. It seems an Associated Content writer is trying to stir up outrage. See how he's BLAMING Google for stirring up outrage? Remember when Google could stir up outrage by NOT doing anything for Veteran's Day or Memorial Day?

Aatom (#74)

Right, I feel like this is a Mikey likes it! moment that everyone is getting slightly backwards. This guy is saying that Google is offending Islam here, not the American flag. But it's such a terribly written piece that it's kind of hard to figure that out, honestly.

Also, I'm seeing a devil horn, so I'm pretty sure that Google has been secretly bought by the Chinese and they are launching their "America is Satan" campaign.

hman (#53)

More like HINDU KUSH MOUNTAIN VIEW, amirite?

OLD GLORY IS ON FIRE,, REVEALING THE COMING ISLAMIC STATE OF THE obama arab emirates !!1!1!!!

DMcK (#5,027)

All I see is the BLOODY VELOCIRAPTOR TALON OF FREEDOM!

It's like they made the flag into a burka.

DoctorDisaster (#1,970)

If you look at it you can kind of tell that the wind just blew the flag in the e's face and he's kind of struggling to get untangled.
