-PC Run Amok: US Embassy Celebrates ‘Independence Day’ on June 4th So Muslims Aren’t Offended?

by Dr. D ~ June 11th, 2015


July 4th  June 4th

The US embassy in Indonesia celebrated Independence Day one month early so that Muslims would not be offended? From the Blaze:

…the U.S. Embassy in Indonesia celebrated American Independence Day on June 4 rather than July 4 in an intentional effort not to offend Muslims in the region. ..

Ramadan, which goes from June 17 through July 17 of this year, involves both fasting and prayer. …

“We are celebrating a month early to respect the holy month of Ramadan, but today we remember the revolutionary Congress meeting on July 4, 1776 in Philadelphia that issued America’s ‘Declaration of Independence’ that changed the course of modern history,” Blake said in the speech.

“The theme of tonight’s celebration is Go Green to highlight the importance of clean energy and sustainable development,” he said. ” 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.”

Response: This is PC ‘political correctness’ run amok. Not only did they change the Independence Day date to accommodate the Muslim’s Ramadan but the celebration itself emphasized environmentalism rather than freedom and democracy. After all, freedom of speech and freedom of religion might also be offensive to Muslims?

Must everything we do now accommodate Islam and Muslim sensibilities? Maybe we should call off Christmas and Easter celebrations this year and hold them only in private like Christians do in the Middle East since some might be offended by the Christian holidays?

Couldn’t the celebration have been held on the traditional day at night when all could have participated even during Ramadan? One wonders who comes up with this stuff?             *Top
