Google is headquarted basically in San Francisco (just outside) - most employees live in S.F.

Chavez is huge in SF with one of the major city streets named after him and they have a Holiday Parade and festival for him.

It's hilarious that Hugo Chavez is being discussed in this thread.

As a Christian, I really like the part that anyone thinks stuff like this gets my panties in a wad as if I would be offended.

My main man JC tells you all you need to know about what to expect if you follow him. It's pretty comical to watch, actually.

we're talking about holiday themes, not necessarily Christian symbolism.

see, e.g.s,
St. Patrick's Day

Valentine's Day

Christmas

Why the hell does anyone give a rats arse about Chavez? Looks like the folks at Google are desperate for attention or trolling.

You could be celebrating Robert E Lees' birthday in you chose to do so.


I remember 6 or 7 years ago when the Klan had a march downtown in the town my Grandparents live in in Arkansas, in celebration for Lee's birthday

This would have probably angered Chavez as well, being that he was a devout Catholic.

There are a lot of people in California (Google headquarters) who very much give a rats arse about Chavez. This isn't a big deal nationally, I guess, but it's the dead guy's birthday today.

Rather poor decision by Google. Jesus has had more of an impact on all people around the world than any other person in history.
To Jeauxbleaux - so sad that you went the ridicule approach. Jesus was Jewish and the early church was comprised of mostly Jewish people. I would think it is something to take pride in as a Jew.
Finally, Ceasar Chavez is not the person that today's left portrays him as being. He was very much against illegal immigrants coming into the country.

quote:

Well, I suppose that's a better way to memorialize Chavez than letting the kids hang out at the mall. But we can be confident that the propaganda fed the students will portray him the way the Chicano verbalist elite prefers: as the patron saint of the reconquista of Alta California by La Raza

" The truth about Chavez is much more interesting. A third-generation American citizen from Yuma, Arizona, he was first and foremost a labor leader, as crafty and sometimes ruthless as any effective union boss must be. Today, Mexican-American educators and politicians have one simple priority: more immigration. Every warm body with a brown skin increases their clout. But, then and now, union leaders have the opposite need. "



quote:

By Chavez's heyday in the early Seventies, there were only 200,000 migrant farm workers left. Which made his triumphs feasible.In his prime, Chavez fought constantly against illegal immigration. He frequently complained that the Immigration & Naturalization Service wasn't tough enough. When Chavez would lead a strike, the grower would send trucks across the Mexican border, load them up with scabs, and race back to the Central Valley in the dead of night. Chavez even offered his UFW staffers to the INS to serve as volunteer border guards to keep Mexicans from sneaking into California.
