D-Day Doodle

Google has done some nice things technology-wise. However, IMO they are less than stellar when it comes to social issues.

Here's why Bing has become my default search engine, rather than Google.

Google Doodle Honors Leftist Who Praised Bin Laden, But Not D-Day Veterans

So what Google is passively aggressively saying is they will not honor the people who saved the world from Hitler, but they will honor a woman who converted to Islam and praised Bin Laden as a freedom fighter, and who supported Mao and other revolutionary murderers.
These are screen shots of the Google search page taken, respectively, on 6 June 2016 and 19 May 2016. Note the lack of anything related to D-Day on June 6th, in contrast to the doodle honoring Yuri Kochiyama on May 19th.

So who is Yuri Kochiyama, you ask?
In a 2003 interview, she expressed admiration and support for Osama bin Laden, saying "...I consider Osama bin Laden as one of the people that I admire. To me, he is in the category of Malcolm X, Che Guevara, Patrice Lumumba, Fidel Castro.... I thank Islam for bin Laden..."
Today, Bing has put up a beautiful picture of Pointe du Hoc, site of the Normandy landings.

This is a poor reproduction of the high quality image Bing posted. I don't know how long it will stay up, but if you go to Bing you might be able to see it. Plus Bing has a cool Info link that takes you to sources which provide more insight.

Honoring the brave men who fought against a murderous despot in 1944, or honoring someone who praises the architect of an unconscionable act of terrorism? That's a pretty easy choice for me.

If you're so inclined, you can go here to leave a comment on Google's Facebook page regarding their misplaced priorities.

What makes you so sure that they "saved us" from him. Its not that way. He was kind of the last hope for the world but not strong enough against the allied puppets driven by money and greed.
