You can now add Google to the growing list of things right-wing nuts have declared to be unAmerican. Google joins the Girl Scouts, the Statue of Liberty and Campbell’s Soup as previously All-American icons that have somehow offended crazy Tea Party losers.
On Veterans Day, the Google homepage ran a special graphic featuring the American flag superimposed over the company’s last two letters. It was done as a TRIBUTE to American veterans. Unfortunately some Americans sensed conspiracy, pointing out that the “e” sticking out in “Google” looked suspiciously “Muslim.” The conspiracy-minded thought the partially covered “e” looked like a crescent. A RED crescent.
THE SAME PEOPLE WHO THOUGHT GOOGLE WAS “PRO-MUSLIM” ALSO ACCUSED THE GIRL SCOUTS OF BEING “PRO-LESBIAN”
