Is this really what our country has come to? Are we really cow-towing to muslims now and moving the holiday in which we celebrate the birth of our nation, July 4th, to June 4th to avoid offending muslims during the month of ramadan. Let me ask you, when is the last time others went out of their way to cater to the American way of doing things? No one EVER takes into consideration American values, American customs, or simply the American way of doing things. We have done away with anything that has to do with the spirit in which this country was founded. There have even been incidents in which American citizens have been told to take down their own American flags to avoid “offending” others.

According to BizPacReview,
In a move than perfectly embodies , the United States Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia .
To avoid offending Muslims.
The embassy . out of respect for the upcoming Ramadan month, which lasts from June 17 through July 17,
Observance of Ramadan, one of the Five Pillars of Islam, requires fasting by Muslims from dawn to sunset.
The U.S. Ambassador, Robert Blake, held festivities at his residence in Central Jakarta on Thursday, the Post reported.
“Democracy is an American value which we have championed since 1776,” Blake told those in attendance.
Enough with everyone taking “offense” to things they may not like or agree with. What ever happened to individuals who possessed the courage to stick up for what they believe in? We have become a country of wussies and like always the fish stinks from the head. Our own government is setting the example of how to be a wussy. Obama likes to stand there and try and make us believe that he has single handedly made America the most respected country in the world again. We can’t even celebrate our own country’s birth on the day it was conceived because it may offend the muslims, and he wants us to believe that America is once again a respected country on the world stage? The worst part is there are so many morons in this country who fall right in line with the crap that falls out of his mouth and hang on his every word.
WAKE UP PEOPLE!! This president is selling our country out to the illegal immigrants, Russia, and the radical muslim nations of the middle east. It’s safe to say that this country is literally unrecognizable from what it once was when we lead the fight and subsequent defeat of the Nazis in WWII. Since then we have seen a steady decline in American influence around the world culminating in what we are witnessing today as Obama sees to it that we continue down the path of destruction.
