G30S/PKI – At Lubang Buaya, A Prayer Of Thanks


As everyone here in Jakarta knows, September 30th is the anniversary of the PKI (Communist Party of Indonesia) attempt to seize power and plunge Indonesia into a marxist nightmare.

So what’s wrong with Indonesia’s armed forces, the TNI, making sure their men and women view a classic film about that episode in Indonesian history.

Pengkhianatan G30SPKI, which is directed by acclaimed director Arifin C. Noer, tells the story of Gen. Soeharto in quashing a coup blamed on the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI). In the big-budget film, communists are depicted as godless savages who mutilated military officers in a frenzy.   http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/09/17/army-to-hold-screenings-of-pki-movie.html

Communism has more deaths to its discredit than any other ideology.

Communists are indeed godless savages!

And always have been, along with contemptible fellow-travellers, like the late ‘intellectual’ Pramoedya, a key player in the LEKRA red front, on whom we’ve commented before.

From  Tempo, issue May 16-22, 2006 – an extract which explains why some 25 “prominent literary figures and cultural observers” put their distinguished names to a formal submission to the Magsaysay Award Committee in 1995, protesting at that body’s decision to give Pramoedya an award.

Their reasons were simply stated, viz his unethical role during one of the darkest periods for creativity during the Guided Democracy era, when he led the persecution of artists and literary figures who disagreed with him.


(this protest is air-brushed out of most Western references nowadays, though a brief mention is to be found in an otherwise slavishly pro-Pram article in the Economist  http://www.economist.com/node/168819 )

If Indonesia in 1965 had fallen prey to the totalitarian hypocrites of the PKI, God only knows how horrific might have been the fate of this lovely archipelago.

The PKI fuhrer at the time, D.N. Aidit, opined (before he got what was coming to him!) that North Korea was his favourite marxist model!

communism tyranny

Not surprisingly, the Communist Party has been banned for fifty years in consequence of the treason that was then crushed.

Yet ten days ago, in an artificially stoked furore over the TNI’s move to have military personnel view the film, we had Aidit’s son opining that

 “As long as poverty exists, Marxism will attract people. A challenge for this country is to make everyone prosperous so there’s no need for communism,” Ilham Aidit, son of the late Indonesian Communist Party leader Dipa Nusantara Aidit, said in Jakarta on Wednesday (20/09).   http://jakartaglobe.id/news/rise-new-wave-communism-red-herring-ministers/

This is an odd assertion. The worst, most rabid Reds have tended to be people not afflicted by poverty but those spawned by the privileged, like many of those in modern Indonesia who agitate to exculpate the PKI.

A lot of present-day ‘intellectual’ posers and their media comrades, notably in the notorious Jakarta Post…

Jakarta Post – Never Miss a Chance to Re-Hab Reds! 

…and its competitor, the Jakarta Globe…

…are STILL trying to make out that the Reds were unfairly dealt with in the aftermath.

Even the far-away far-left, the BBC for one example, manage from time to time to jump on this bandwagon!

BBC Bias On PKI – So Kids Shouldn’t Learn Nazis Were Evil? 

As I noted briefly yesterday…

Inconsistent Agitation? Woe To Jakarta Commuters! 

…their tactics are to argue that many non-communists suffered retaliation unfairly (true) and that the families of PKI members and fellow-travellers were punished, despite not being themselves guilty of communist treason (also true)

But the pinkos fail clearly to distinguish between those wronged…

…and the genuinely guilty, the card-carrying PKI scum  – who often did a runner to red tyrannies overseas (having abandoned a lot of simple folk they’d gulled into fellow-travelling to face the music in Indonesia!)

Incredibly, many ‘former’ PKI, even to this day, have refused to repent, failed to acknowledge the evil of Communism.

‘We Don’t Want Communism?’ But if You Did, It’s Time To Apologise!! 

Why on earth seek to rehabilitate such swine, without a word of repentance on their part?

So on this anniversary, let’s join, at least in spirit, those assembled at the Lubang Buaya, where those officers were murdered in 1965…

…and be thankful that Indonesians did not allow their country to be dragged into the darkness of communism.
