These chaps have the right idea!
Some "Cut & Run" types think it's ok to celebrate such other July 4th holidays such as:
Filipino - American Friendship Day
Day of Agwe - Haiti
Birthday of Queen Sonja - Norway
Commemoration of Jewish Genocide - Latvia
Family Day - Lesotho
Fisherman's Day - Marshall Islands
Independence Day - Rwanda
King's Day - Tonga
Macaronis (pictured above) were the Hipster douches of their day. On July 4th they mocked Yankee Doodle (a Dandy who, naturally, was the arch foe of the clueless, appalling, hideous sartorial abominations, the Macaronis). They erroneously assumed (unfamiliar as they were with understatement) that Yankee Doodle sticking a feather in his hat amounted to him wanting to join their odious ranks. In response he had to regulate. This is his day.
The War of Independence wasn't just fought against the teabags. On the western front, the colonies fought a genocidal campaign against the cussed natives. The Shawnee were upset at the Iroquois for having sold land to the English. They organized a resistance but were defeated by the Virginia militia. The Declaration of Independence spelled out the newly independent country's intentions. "…[He] has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions." God hates redskins.
