Hugo Chavez: Marxist Money Power Stooge

Today, Google chose to honor legendary labor leader Cesar Chavez with one of their Google Doodles – the temporary homepage logos used to commemorate certain days -- because it’s his birthday.

On most days, the move wouldn’t stir up much controversy. But this time, some conservative sites are questioning the tech giant’s decision to recognize the labor leader and not the Easter holiday, which falls on the same day.

"Yep. While two billion Christians around the world celebrate Easter Sunday on this 31st day of March, Google is using its famous "Doodle" search logo art to mark the birth of left-wing labor leader Cesar Chavez," reads a post on the site.

But First Things, a conservative-leaning Catholic journal, argued that it is fitting to remember Chavez on Easter Sunday. So many of his actions, the site said, were driven by his religious convictions.
