The 4th of July is our time to celebrate with friends and family about American independence. Lots of fireworks, hamburgers, and fun. America is a great country, and so many gave their lives for the freedoms we enjoy. We should embrace every moment of this important holiday.
But Barack Obama doesn’t agree. He is a staunchly anti-American ideologue. Instead of being focused on American interests, his views are from the Middle East. He sees America as a force of evil and imperialism. And he’s even more dangerous with less than two years left in his final term.
That’s why last year the Obama administration’s embassy in Jakarta celebrated the 4th of July one month early on June 4th. Why? Because they wanted to be “respectful” for the Ramadan month, which began on June 17 and lasted until July 17. This time of fasting for Muslims is sacred, but somehow an American embassy celebrating American traditions interferes with this? Outrageous!
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.
Not only did they reschedule Independence Day, but Obama-appointed ambassadors used the opportunity to promote wildly inefficient “green energy!”
