Our Indonesian-at-heart president had the U.S. embassy in Indonesia celebrate Independence Day a month early on June 4th out of respect for Ramadan. Our embassy is considered U.S. territory – it’s a sovereign entity – but Obama is a foreigner at heart.
He wasn’t brought up as a typical American. His years in Indonesia combined with his communist background led us to where we are today with a president who is literally destroying our Republic.
Mr. Obama doesn’t mind insulting all Americans as he bows to Islamists in Indonesia.
Independence Day is our most sacred holiday and to have our representatives in Indonesia act in a subservient manner is extremely insulting to the citizens of this country. Independence Day can’t be changed. It is July 4th.
Independence Day is a big deal in our embassies. Changing the day was a powerful statement.
I wonder if the Indonesian embassies in the United States will move Ramadan.

“US Embassy celebrates 4th of July earlier out of respect for Ramadhan,” by Dylan Amirio
The United States Embassy enjoyed its annual 4th of July celebration on Thursday, June 4, one month early, in order to respect the upcoming Ramadhan month, which will begin on June 17 and last for one month.
US Ambassador to Indonesia Robert O. Blake and US Ambassador to ASEAN Nina Hachigian presided over the festivities, which involved brass band renditions of the Star-Spangled Banner and the Indonesian national anthem, Indonesia Raya.
Blake explained that the theme of the event leaned toward “green” development, which supported the US’ focus on building and promoting a green economy and more environmentally sustainable development.
He also praised Indonesia’s performance as a fully functioning democracy, aiming for further collaboration between the two countries in the years to come.
“The US will continue to support Indonesia in the future through its democratic achievements. Democracy is an American value which we have championed since [the country’s birth in] 1776,” Blake told the crowd during the festivities at his residence near Taman Suropati, Central Jakarta, on Thursday.
He added that moving the 4th of July celebrations to June 4 was one done out of respect for the upcoming Ramadhan month, which will last from June 17 to July 17.
The event also showcased a number of American products and businesses, including the Zero FX Electric Motorcycles, which Blake explained were an environmentally friendly vehicle used by the California Highway Patrol.
The holiday was warped and made into a “green” event (paragraph three). Obama and his leftist minions might not mind diminishing the most important holiday in this country. I wonder why.
In the third from the last paragraph, Blake refers to the U.S. as a democracy. We are not a democracy though the leftists want us to think we are. We are a Republic.
Some are saying it is a gesture of Dhimmitude, which is, according to Wiki, the Islamic system of governing populations conquered by jihad wars, encompassing all of the demographic, ethnic, and religious aspects of the political system. The word “dhimmitude” as a historical concept, was coined by Bat Ye’or in 1983 to describe the legal and social conditions of Jews and Christians subjected to Islamic rule.
This president is making us subservient to Islam by moving our holiday.
Obama apologists at Snopes said it was merely a minor scheduling decision. Fine, then just don’t invite the Islamists to the party or have it at night to accommodate Ramadan.
Obama demonizes Christians when he can. He sided with the Muslim Brotherhood and is still siding with them against allies. He is an ally of terrorists in Iran and communists in Cuba.
Wake up America!!!
