America’s Founders take back seat to Mohammad and climate change at U.S. Embassy
At the United States Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, the uniquely American Fourth of July holiday has already come and gone —- celebrated a month early on June 4.
According to remarks given by U.S. Ambassador Robert Blake, the early celebration was out of respect for the holy month of Ramadan which runs from June 17 through July 17 in the mostly Muslim nation. The period is regarded as the holiest month of the year since Muslims believe the Quran was revealed to Mohammad during that time. The faithful fast from dawn to dusk throughout the holiday.
Political correctness ruled the day at the embassy, as a brass band played renditions of both the Star Spangled Banner and the Indonesian national anthem, Indonesia Raya. Climate change was also given a boost.
In his embarrassing speech, Ambassador Blake noted, “The theme of tonight’s celebration is ‘Go Green’ to highlight the importance of clean energy and sustainable development. I encourage you to hop on the electric motorcycle, look at the model of the new green embassy we are building, and see the other displays of our green cooperation here, including biodegradable balloons and local, low-carbon, sustainable food.”
Green is in. Red, White and Blue are out.
