Yesterday was Memorial Day—a day set aside to honor our fallen soldiers who died in the defense of what was once the land of the free and the home of the brave. Microsoft’s “Bing” page looked like this:
Google’s page looked like this:
Today, however, Google’s page looks like this:
What is that a picture of? Why, it’s Rachel Carson—author of the famed “Silent Spring” book which is credited with kicking off the environmental movement.
Now, of course, environmentalism is nothing more than one more front for the Communist/global government agenda (“watermelons”, as the envirocons are sometimes called—green on the outside, red on the inside). But certainly Ms. Carson can’t be blamed for this subversion of her cause, correct?
Yet a little digging reveals that Ms. Carson seemed far less interested in the scientific integrity of her claims than in the effectiveness of her propaganda. (She was a feminist, after all. Her feelings about “chemicals” trumped any and all contradictory evidence.) Overstating the case against such wonders as DDT made her a hero to the left—but a fraud to anyone with a shred of intellectual integrity.
Ms. Carson’s disingenuous book has literally caused the deaths of millions of people around the world, as it directly resulted in the banning of DDT, which directly resulted in the uncontrolled spread of malaria and other such deadly diseases.
And thus she gets her own “Google Doodle” homage. Our soldiers who paid the ultimate price in the defense of individual liberty? They get squat. (Can’t wait until Steven J. Gould‘s birthday.)
Anyone still patronizing Google should be ashamed of themselves.
