    Don’t Confuse Good Chinese-Canadians With Red Scum! 

    How very sad to see this headline, and the intro to a story…

    Chinese in Canada a target of increased hate during pandemic

    Spitting and violent attacks, to verbal assaults and vandalism of Chinese cultural sites

    ….which, if accurate, shows how stupid some people can be.

    One of my favourite outings as a kid in Stratford Ontario was to the Golden Bamboo, though I can’t recall what I ate there.

    It was the friendly Chinese staff and the ambience that hooked me.

    Most Chinese-ethnics in Canada, like those restaurant workers in Ontario, and presumably in British Columbia, where the report comes from, are there because –

    A – they were born there, or

    B – they didn’t like living in the giant prison called Red China.

    We covered the story some months ago

    “This is Canada! Go back to China!” 

    ….when good Chinese-origin Canadians clashed  with Communist filth on Canadian streets.

    VANCOUVER, BC., August 18, 2019 - Scenes from a rally outside the Chinese consulate to protest against "police brutality" against pro-Hong Kong supporters by police in Hong Kong as well as pro China demonstrators, in Vancouver, BC., August 18, 2019.

    Pro-Communist ratbags soil a Canadian street


    The Federal Government should at once have swooped on those who had made very clear their overt allegiance to Beijing…

    …and deported every last one of them.

    It’s the least decent people had a right to expect!

    All decent people hate Communism, of course, but in this context, I mean Canadians of every ethnicity who understand that the disciples of Mao are agents of evil.


    Mao the Monster


    By flaunting their disloyalty in Vancouver, those agents of evil provoked local dimwits incapable of recognising the difference between good Chinese, with whom we should all show solidarity, and the sort of red vermin who brandished the banner of the enslavers.



    But let’s agree that while dimwits harassing innocent people deserve to be caught and punished, only a dimwit government would have failed to take action – expulsion action – which would have deprived the pig-ignorant perps of their deluded excuses for aggro.

    Jokowi Faces New Fanatic Threat : ‘Civil Disobedience!’ 

    Recently I have focused much of my bloggery on the outrageous behaviour of Red China.

    The Beijing Bully Xi deserves every condemnation we here and many other voices all over the world have issued.

    In no way are such fulminations anti-Chinese, in the sense of hostility towards Chinese people, either those held in subjection by the Communists dictatorship on the mainland…

    ….or anywhere else.

    That’s self-evident!

    Our repeated expressions of solidarity with the brave young resistance in Hong Kong…

    ….and with Free China aka Taiwan…

    …and with the decent Chinese-ethnic Canadians and Australians…

    If Chinese Folks Come To Free Countries To Seek Freedom, WELCOME! Otherwise…?

    Communist vermin in Australia, confronting decent Chinese, just as happened in Canada!

    “This is Canada! Go back to China!”

    …make it plain we are NOT blaming Chinese people for the evil done by Chinese Communist despots.

    If, on the other hand, we, or anyone else, began ranting how nobody should be..


    “…opening the door to foreign workers, especially  Chinese…”


    …then we would be seen, rightly, as pandering to prejudice against Chinese people per se.

    That quote above comes from a collection of Indonesian Islamist fanatics, who have issued a declaration, in response to the detention of a notorious extremist, which would be laughable were it not, during the virus crisis…


    China is Lying, Coronavirus started in Wuhan

    …so menacing.

     “We urge that the parties and officials who are carrying out an anti-Islam agenda immediately return the status of Habib Bahar bin Smith to the original condition of assimilation status…” 

    Asimilasi here refers to the prisoner virus amnesty.

    Skip the absurd accusation that the Muslim President Jokowi…



    …his overwhelmingly Muslim cabinet, and the more or less entirely Muslim high command of the security forces are even remotely contemplating an ‘Anti-Islam agenda!

    Skip too the notion that there are loads of ‘Foreign Workers’ (Chinese or otherwise) pouring into Jakarta.

    Smith, with fans

    We have noted that fanatic H bin Smith already…  

    Virus Amnesty – Indonesian Fanatic Released! 

    …and been appalled by the threat of a disorderly demo…

    Indonesia’s Islamists Threaten Mob Mayhem! 

    …but now the extremists are upping the ante, not just a one-off outburst of mayhem, but wholesale obstruction of the already shaky anti-virus effort.

    If these demands are not met, they invite all Muslims to undertake civil disobedience to the entire government


    The declaration of disruptive intent is reportedly published by a variety of individuals and outfits, the link above mentioning both the FPI and the MUI.

    The latter is the state-sponsored official council of ‘scholars…’

    and there are no doubt wayward members thereof…

    Islamist ‘Scholar’ in Racist Rant -“Ahok Anggap Jakarta Ini Sebuah Kota di Cina…” 

    We’re Not Racist, Just Bigots – So…About That ‘Chinese City?’ 

    …as we have recorded when we wrote often on that organisation.

    But it would be surprising, alarming, if the MUI as a body sided with the jailed fanatic against the government.

    However, the FPI is a different matter.



    The self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front’ is not shy about espousing violence against other ethnic or religious groups, as can be seen from that photo.

    And when we read that the ‘declaration’ has the name of FPI’s Sobri Lubis appended thereto…



    …we need to recall his infamous rant. Just watch the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7RLCXNdKF4  –which shows him issuing his monstrous call for his rabble audience to ‘Bunuh, Bunuh, Bunuh (KILL KILL KILL!) innocent Ahmadis.

    ….incitement for which he was never prosecuted, BTW!

    And when we note also that the PA 212 is involved, whose extremely short ‘Long March’ we wrote about a few days ago…

    The protesters, most of whom were men dressed in white Muslim attire, were heard yelling, “We want a Muslim governor,” “Burn Ahok!” and “Kafir!”   http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/10/14/thousands-hard-liners-march-against-ahok.htm

    Beware! Very Short Fanatic ‘Long March,’ Jakarta, This Friday! 

    Time for the good people of Jakarta to reach for their safety belts!

      Many big malls will open next week.
      If the lockdown stops like we hear it will, what can they march against?

    Kasihan, Jakarta, Sayangku – What A Pity, Beloved City! 

    Given how the words ‘hate-speech’ have been devalued in the Western world, by imbeciles like Britain’s Surrey Police, whose ‘Hate Crime Procedure…’

    ...says ‘apparent lack of motivation as the cause of an incident is not relevant as it is the perception of the victim or any other person that counts’. No clear hateful motivation? Doesn’t matter. Record it as a hate crime anyway.

    Britain’s real hate crime scandal

    …it’s interesting to note the widespread outrage over the newly installed Governor of Jakarta’s astounding outburst this week.

    Being a lazy fellow, I have decided to build my comments around what ‘The Australian’ newspaper reported, that Anies Baswedan used his first speech in office to urge “native” Jakartans to take back the Indonesian capital.

    Not at all surprisingly, this sparked concern among the city’s ethnic Chinese community…

    The word Baswedan chose, pribumi, is common here and has a very specific meaning – indigenous.

    It is always used to differentiate between Chinese ethnic people and the majority, who are mostly of Melayu   (Malay) ethnicity.

    One of many Jakarta shops marked by their owners as ‘pribumi property’ in an effort to preserve them from looting during the 1998 anti-Chinese race riots


    There has always been some anti-Chinese racism around Jakarta, which we have noted from time to time.

    Jakarta Jew-Haters Boo Chinese Christian Candidate 

    We whites, who are mostly not citizens anyway, are bule, literally albino! Nobody I know gives a damn about being called a bule, We often use it to refer to ourselves!

    Admittedly I was a bit miffed when house-hunting a few years ago, to be told that one owner would under no circumstances have a bule tenant…



    …but, unlike the ‘discrimination’ whiners in The Old Country, my attitude was that he owned the property and if he wished to behave stupidly, he had every right to be stupid.

    If I had to hire a secretary, I’d certainly discriminate, offering the job to somebody, anybody…



    …who looks like the Indonesian songstress Dewi Perssik, before anyone else, no matter how secretarially qualified!

    But that’s just me.

    Anies Baswedan now runs all Jakarta!

    “In Jakarta, colonialism is right in front of our eyes, felt in everyday lives.”


    “In the old days, all of us pri­bumi (natives) were oppressed and defeated. Now after independence, it is time for us to be the masters of our land,” he said, as people in the crowd punched the air and shouted –

    “Allah is Great.” .http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/new-jakarta-chief-stirs-ethnic-tensions-on-first-day-in-office/news-story/

    Of course they didn’t shout ‘Allah is Great.’ They wouldn’t be shouting in English. The sort who love to shout prefer Arabic! What the reporters, and everyone else, heard was ‘ALLAHU AKBAR,’ words which cause an emotional response in Western lands and now, it seems, here too.

    Anies Baswedan wins a smile from FPI ‘grand imam,’ Habib Rizieq


    If Anies had been ranting thus at a meeting of his fanatic fans in the FPI, a violent Islamist gang which he courted eagerly during his election campaign, one might expect much such hollering.

    But at his first speech as Governor?

    At least people now know what to expect, if they hadn”t already! Even that Australian reporter knows Anies’ record well enough to describe him as –

    the former moderate Muslim!’ 

    The report mentions that Baswedan was once Rector of Paramadina University, which I passed on my bus last month. It’s long had a good reputation as a place where REAL moderate Muslims are abundant,

    There’s a quote from a lecturer there, saying the use of the word was “inappropriate.”

    That’s not a word I like to hear in such discussions. Right or Wrong, okay, or neither, but ‘inappropriate?’   Something of a cop-out term.

    But the lecturer is correct when he added  that –

    “The atmosphere in Jakarta is very different now compared to before the election and the term ‘pribumi’ could spark tension. We cannot blame those who took offence at this speech..”

    And a former minister and human rights advocate described the speech as a “disaster” guaranteed to “open old wounds.”

    I prefer the more robust observations from the Centre for Strategic and International Studies researcher, Tobias Basuki…

    …who defined the new governor’s words as “alienating, especially coming from him and his track record in the election. It’s quite obvious that he’s excluding Chinese Indonesians because that’s the narrative that propelled him into office.”

    Inevitably, Baswedan – who’s no fool – is now claiming he was looking back at those wicked imperialists, the Dutch!



    Who faced the Dutch up close? Jakartans,” he said.

    “If we look at people in the countryside, they know about the Dutch. But do they face them up close? No. The bottom line is I was talking about the Dutch colonial rule.”

    Best not to think what non-Jakarta pribumi, from Aceh to Bali, who put up spirited resistance to Holland, might want to say to that!

    But Dutch colonial rule ended nearly seventy years ago! What tense, past or present, was Baswedan using to make Islamist bigots holler ‘Allahu Akbar?

    What was that word he used?


    Some Chinese Indonesians may say that we bule are fortunate, because, when the current Creeping Shariah escalates into a nightmare stampede, we can leave, easily, whereas this is their country, in which they’ve lived for centuries.

    But despite the horrified responses from decent Indonesians, including many pribumi, there’s no way I can feel fortunate.

    It won’t be that long till I have been here twenty years, and I love Jakarta, never imagined how far and fast the fanatics would become major players in the political game.

    When Islamist zealotry intertwines with paeans of ethnic triumphalism, it’s hard to find reasons not to be gloomy.

    Final quote, from one of the banners on show along the governor’s convoy route to City Hall on Monday night, hailing Mr Anies’s election as a “symbol of the awakening of the indigenous Muslims…”

    Time to read something else…

    …a bit of Western literature, perhaps, before my pleasant (and pribumi!) guest arrives!

      I was wondering when you would get round to Anies Baswedan, Ross.
      Impossible to disagree with you.
      From the top down there is nobody up for the fight that’s needed to stop the FPI and the other hate groups.
      I won’t stick around to watch the end.
