Google Doodle Botches Things….Again

Remembrance Day doodle is an insult to veterans.

To paraphrase something recently said by Canadian MP Michelle Remple-Garner in the House of Commons, enough of the woke shit already.

I have to wonder who in the brain trust at Google thought this was a good idea? Or is it that someone is just plain ignorant?

What Google is in effect saying here is “Today we commemorate those lives lost in war along with everyone who has died ever.”

In many countries, the red poppy is a symbol of remembrance for those who fell, not a black ribbon. It’s not as if there weren’t enough pictures online for someone to get the idea. Perhaps Google would do wise to maybe so a little bit of research. How bloody ironic is that?

The Poppy is a common symbol of remembrance for those who died in the pursuit of freedom. People wear this poppy as a pin on their left breasts in the weeks leading up to Remembrance Day.

Remembrance Day Top Events and Things to Do

  • Place a wreath at the grave of a deceased member of the military.
  • Wear a red poppy as a symbol of remembrance.

In short Google, you really need to step up your game and DO BETTER!!!!

The millions of people you have alienated over this would I’m sure agree.
