Well isn’t that some sh-t. Sundar Pichai, the current CEO of Google, is honoring the supporter of a man who killed almost 3000 Americans on 9-11.
Pichai is a pretty smart guy. He earned an MBA from Wharton in 2002, and was an integral part of the team that developed Google Chrome, Chrome OS, and Google Drive.
His intelligence seems to end at tech, though. No American in their right mind would honor a bin Laden supporter on the front page of a website that billions of people use everyday. Really an idiotic move. It’s possible that Pichai had no idea his site featured a terrorist lover, or maybe he did, and he supports bin Laden, too.
Whatever the case, for a company whose slogan is “Don’t be evil,” to honor the supporter of the world’s most evil terror mastermind is really a moron move.
Google, better check your sh-t before honoring America-haters & terrorist lovers. People might start thinking you support terrorists, too, and then you’d be in a world of sh-t. ~FD
Yuri Kochiyama was a Japanese-American who was placed in an internment camp as a young adult during World War II and went on to a lengthy career as an activist. Kochiyama died in 2014, but Thursday’s Google Doodle honors her on what would have been her 95th birthday.
“It’s with great pleasure that Google celebrates Yuri Kochiyama, an Asian American activist who dedicated her life to the fight for human rights and against racism and injustice,” Google’s webpage for Thursday’s Doodle says.
This short summary substantially whitewashes Kochiyama’s career, though. Besides campaigning for reparations to interned Japanese-Americans (which were granted in 1988), Kochiyama’s career included frequent support for Communist revolution, black separatism, and anti-American terrorism.
A convert to Islam, after 9/11 Kochiyama was deeply critical of the U.S. war on terrorism and offered strong praise for Osama bin Laden. In a 2003 interview, she described bin Laden as a leader she admired, alongside Fidel Castro, Malcolm X, and Che Guevara.Via Daily Caller
