Despite Islamist Intimidation , Ahok Campaigns On!
Well done, Governor Ahok!
Despite fanatic ‘scholars’ and menacing mobs, he’s going ahead as per usual, mingling with the decent people of Jakarta – and that’s the majority, believe me!
I was out among them today, normal, friendly folks, who are nothing like the undesirable brutes who have been giving Ahok a hard time.
Jakarta Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama says he will continue to carry out blusukan (impromptu visits) during his campaign although several groups have prevented him from campaigning in certain areas due to his alleged blasphemy. http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/11/14/ahok-to-continue-blusukan-despite-protests.html
This blasphemy stuff is getting to be a bore. There’s no serious substance to the charge, and why should it matter?
God doesn’t need lawless layabouts like those in the news ( see below) to defend Him.
A week ago there was a pig-ignorant rabble amok-run during one of his walk-abouts in Rawa Belong, in West Jakarta.
Ahok was rushed to safety by security personnel after several people protested his visit and accused him of committing blasphemy. The incident left one of his aides hospitalized.
Last weekend, in Kedoya, West Jakarta, there was another protest by a pack of primitives.
These hate-freaks are nothing new.
Obviously, the police should get stuck into the swine if they turn violent. I can’t see any reason for reluctance on their part, since the same kind of thugs injured several of their fellow-officers in the Islamist riot last month in downtown Jakarta.
As is so often the case with outbreaks of sectarian hoodlumism here in Indonesia, there are grounds for believing the swine causing trouble are imported louts.
Ahok himself told the local media that “we’re aware that people who have expelled us and put up banners rejecting [our presence] are actually not residents of areas where they have staged protests.”
We saw similar intrusions in Sukorejo, in Central Java, a year or two ago, when a gang of IslamoNazi thugs descended on the town and caused mayhem. After an innocent woman was killed by one of the brutes’ vehicles, the townsfolk took after them.
The gutless sectarians ran for it, and cowered in a mosque till after dark, when they scuttled out of town under a police escort.
One hopes Jakartans will soon start to show the same civic pride.
