Obama Statue Under Fire in Jakarta

,


Statue of ten year old Barack Obama in Menteng Park, Jakarta

Indonesia authorities announced yesterday that they are considering acquiescing to demands that a statue of Barack Obama as a little boy, erected by relatives and friends in a Jakarta park “to motivate children to study hard and dream big,” be removed. 56,000 Indonesians have signed a petition calling for the ouster of Obama’s statue. The location ought to be used for the statue of an Indonesian, critics contend. Obama lived in Indonesia for only four years as a child.

Little Barry in Indonesia: that was after his mom married her second Muslim foreigner.
Maybe it was just coincidence.

What a preposterous object, and what a growing embarrassment for the citizens. True for both the people of Indonesia with their statue & those of United States with real person.
