Organizing Easter

On the occasion of Easter, Google has chosen to mark the date with a Google Doodle commemorating Cesar Chavez's birthday.

And it is a blatant political statement, based on Google's CEO being neck deep in Obama's ass.
President Barack Obama released a statement in 2011 proclaiming March 31 “Cesar Chavez Day,” declaring, “I call upon all Americans to observe this day with appropriate service, community, and educational programs to honor Cesar Chavez’s enduring legacy.”
Google CEO Eric Schmidt was an informal adviser to both of President Obama’s presidential campaigns, a member of the Obama White House transition team in 2009 and a onetime prospect for an Obama Cabinet post during the president’s second term.
As The Daily Caller has reported, Schmidt is also a steadfast climate-change activist, and has advocated for the complete termination of the oil, natural gas, and coal industries, and predicted that Washington, D.C. will soon be completely underwater due to climate change.

I would venture to guess that the same demographic that idolizes Chavez, also celebrates Easter (the Resurrection version, not just the chocolate bunny version), and hope that they are sufficiently annoyed - both at Google for ignoring the Easter Bunny, and because they voted for a president that declares Easter as a day of celebration for the man who organized migrant laborers into the highly-paid and well-respected workforce they are today.
