It’s only June but the Fourth of July is over

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.

     According to this state department site, the current U.S. Embassy 
    compound in Jakarta opened in 1958 and has been in use ever since How many times has this foolishness occurred in those nearly 60 years? Only under Barack Hussein Obama’s administration are such outrages treated as “respectful.”

    Respect? This 4th of July celebration was being held on the grounds of the embassy of the UNITED STATES. Would the Muslims have shown the same “respect’ and moved their Ramadan observances to accommodate us? Fat chance!

    Jakarta, Indonesia….that’s where Barack Obama fondly recalled living and attending school as a child. His stepfather Lolo Soetoro registered him as a Muslim student. Daniel Pipes of FrontPage magazine wrote this article in 2008.

    This video says it all. The Speaker is none other than the President of the United States, who called the shots on this foolish accommodation to Islam on America’s Independence Day at a US Embassy. What an affront!
