The Jakarta Post’s Horrible Hate Headline!

By the way … Ahok deserves both hate and adoration

I have to say, the Jakarta Post must be one of the most irksome newspapers in Indonesia
My conclusion arises from the latest opinion piece, last Saturday, by its veteran big-shot Kornelius Purba…
kornelius-purba Kornelius Purba
….a disturbing outburst, based on his  recent chat with an intolerant Islamist crony, whose bitter hostility to Jakarta’s popular Governor Ahok is variously attributed to his race, his religion and his ‘big mouth.’ These short-comings, it seems, mean that Ahok ‘deserves hate.’
Taking the last excuse first, it’s fair to say that Ahok, unlike so many mealy-mouthed notables here, doesn’t mince his words.
Fanatic Islamist Wails At Christian Governor – “He Calls People Names!” 
How often do we read police chiefs saying they want to prevent ‘unwanted things,’ when they mean mayhem by sectarian thug gangs?
How often do we read journalists talk about ‘certain groups’ or even ‘a certain religion,’ rather than name the likely source of likely whining or worse?
Too often, my own conversations with local people on this topic get responses like ‘it’s the Javanese non-confrontational habit.’
But it seems Pak Kornelius’ fanatic friend ( a fan of the extremist PKS pro-shariah party, whose erstwhile leader penned an infamous paean of adoration to jihadist mass-murderer Osama Bin Laden)…
…doesn’t mince words about the man he loathes for being a Chinese ethnic ‘infidel’  (that means Christian, BTW – Kornelius is one of those but maybe he’s an exception to his friend’s hate-rule)
Okay, it’s more than fair to hate some people.
Gerry Adams, the Sinn Fein/IRA terrorist leader, should be hated by all decent people. Terror Gang Leader Adams, Complicit in Child Molesting – ‘A Man Sent by God?’   
But for our JP king-pin’s pal, mereIy the colour of Ahok’s skin and the way he worships God are sufficient grounds.
Of course Ahok makes mistakes, and I haven’t hesitated to say so…

”Outrageous” Activity in Jakarta Pools? OMG – BIKINIS!

…so I can hardly say I ‘love’ him. But only neanderthal nitwits could possibly ‘hate’ him. 

Jakarta Jew-Haters Boo Chinese Christian Candidate 

How can the JP’s KP seriously assert that his racist and bigoted  companion’s ‘stance is valid..?’
Here’s a quote from the Dark Ager whom Kornelius likes to hang out with. 
“To be honest with you, my faith forbids me from tolerating such a person…” 

That’s the kind of crap that encourages people to support Trump’s ban-all-Muslims call – which I personally don’t, you may recall.

It’s loyalty and principles that matter, not ethnicity or creed. For example, I detest the white and allegedly Christian Justin Turdo….



Canada’s Enemy Within – Will Turdeau “Have To Look at The Root Causes?” 

….and if the ( improbable) chance ever arose, I’d see him replaced overnight with the patriot Canadian Muslim Tarek Fateh, who admirably declared, on the question of talking to Killer Khadr.

– First of all, he must renounce jihad and the application of jihad and sharia law.”  .

A Muslim Voice of Reason – Khadr May Return, IF………!!!!  


The thing is, even KP’s buddy admits Ahok offers clean government (and clean rivers!) yet he would likely continue to dislike Ahok… – just because he looks different, worships differently and says what he really thinks when he witnesses sloth, corruption or religious persecution.

Kornelius Purba ought to be ashamed of himself. He should be condemning his pal’s vicious and venomous views.

But then I have yet to see him publish a word of condemnation of his Jakarta Post’s parent company, Gramedia, notorious collaborators with the worst Islamist intolerants in Indonesia.


The last time Pak Kornelius merited mention here on RRA, it was, by curious coincidence, when he threw the H word around a couple of years ago…

Jakarta Post ‘s “Thousand Reasons to Hate Australia!” 

…and he was gracious enough to comment and say that he actually didn’t ‘hate’ Australia, quite the contrary. He also invited me to drop in to his HQ for a chat, which didn’t happen due to no fault on his part or mine.

However, this time he’s described in detail a real hater, so I’ll be interested to see if he comments again.
