WUSSIFICATION: US Embassy Removes July 4 Celebration Out of ‘Respect for Islam’

Since when do Americans cave to Muslim holidays while putting our own independence day second? Oh yeah, since the fundamental transformation began about 7 years ago.

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.
