It's a manufactured Google Outrage!

Heh.  So right-wingers, from time to time, decide to turn their be-cheetoed maws and paws toward Google, because they are allergic to knowledge, and also because Google is run by people who think they are retards.  Wait, is that it?  Well, the first part is, yes.  (And somehow I doubt that Sergey Brin and Larry Page are too sympathetic to right-wing concerns.)  No, anyway, they get all pissed off when Google changes its logo to commemorate or acknolwedge something that they don't like, since all right-wing thought is based on the idea that everything in the entire world is about them and them only, even things that have nothing to do with them whatsoever.  Like the creation of Tetris, which happened 25 years and a few days ago, apparently.  I noticed the logo change on the day in question, but I didn't care to research it.  Anyway, apparently there was a GOOGLE OUTRAGE!!!111! from the wingnut set, because something else happened that day:

Anyway, what happened this time was that Google commemorated Tetris’s 25th anniversary on June 6th...and didn’t commemorate the 65th anniversary of D-Day (my guess is because 65 is not as much of a landmark anniversary as 25, and Google is a technology company, and seriously?).  Predictably, Google hates America and is advancing an anti-American agenda

These are also the people who go to baseball games and are convinced that their birthday isn’t on the scoreboard because the Atlanta Braves hate Christians.

Oh, good god.  Morons.

As Jesse points out in the above link (do read it all), nobody celebrates 65th anniversaries.  But of course, these people aren't actually mad, they're just doing their little teenaged brat thing, bitching and moaning about something that supposedly victimizes them, because they have nothing better to do with their lives.

Boring, when you think about it.

By the by, if you're not reading Pandagon, you should be.  All the writers are brilliant and wonderful.
