Google’s Veteran’s Day Logo Is Creating a Twitter War

Did you google anything today? Did you pay attention to the logo Google used for Veterans Day? Certainly people on Twitter and Facebook did. As you can see, Google’s American flag graphic covers the top part of the “e” in “Google,” leaving a little crescent shape exposed underneath. That mysterious crescent drove some people to twit the picture complaining against the search engine because they associate the crescent shapes with Muslims. Reactions on Twitter have ranged from shock to disappointment at Google’s choice of doodle designs for Veterans Day.

Actually it wasn’t only twitter fans the one that covered the controversy. William Browning of Associated Content wrote about Google’s logo: In a civilized society we need to show respect. We show respect by opening the door for the elderly. We show respect by thanking a solider for fighting for us. We show respect by saluting the flag when in uniform. We show respect by not desecrating someone’s sacred symbol.”

Am I the only on that thinks this controversy is really stupid?

    The Way Christmas Ought To Be (A Soldier’s Christmas) is one of kind. It is the first Christmas song that lyrically speaks for the men and women of our Armed Services who not only sacrifice their lives for the freedom of the United States and the world, but in doing so are separated from their family friends and loved ones. This selfless dedication becomes painfully acute for these brave military men and women during the holiday season
