Dennis: 'Happy 4th Of July' Offensive?

"While exiting Boise (July 4) and heading back to Catalina, I thanked the TSA rep at the airport for her service on Independence Day," posts Dennis Mansfield. "'Happy 4th of July', I said. Her quiet answer took me by surprise. She looked both ways, then said in a hushed voice: 'Happy 4th to you sir; we can't initiate such a greeting to travellers because TSA is worried it will offend people. We can only respond. Thank you for saying that to me.' TSA's concerned that they will offend people for this holiday and others as well? Like who?"/Dennis Mansfield. More here.

Question: Do you see anything wrong with the greeting: "Happy 4th of July"?
