    Oxymoronic Jakarta Post Reporting – Conservatism = Radicalism? 


    While it was heartening to read that lots of good Jakarta citizens have appealed to the security forces to crack down on the Islamist menace…

    ====

    http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/05/04/jakartans-call-for-help-against-radicalism.html

    … it is baffling to read through the Jakarta Post’s report on the situation, replete with contradictory descriptions of the problem of Islamist intolerance as at once ‘conservatism’  – a growing wave of religious conservatism…

    =

    …and ‘radicalism’ – the headquarters of the National Police, the Jakarta Police and the Indonesian Military (TNI), were adorned with dozens of flower boards bearing messages calling on the government to curb radicalism. 

    Can’t have it both ways!

    And if the JP journos can’t make up their minds, why not just tell it like it is – Arabisation of Indonesia, or Islamist fanaticism ( I admit that’s slightly unfair on Middle Eastern people, especially Middle Eastern women, who also suffer Islamist injustice The Glory That Was Egypt – When Women Were Unashamed To Be Women!  )

    In making up their minds, Indonesian media people must be aware that Indonesia was founded on the pluralist principles embedded in the state ideology of Pancasila. It had to be, because the archipelago is home to various religions and multiple cultures.

    So a genuinely conservative Indonesian will be proud of his country’s heritage of traditional tolerance and seek to preserve it.

    Any movement or ideology which seeks to undermine that heritage is by definition radical.

    Whether that subversion be an alien import called marxism, bent on fuelling class hatred, or the equally alien import – from the Arab World – called Islamism, it needs to be recognised and struck down.

    Indonesians did a good job in 1965, excising the communist cancer called PKI (the Indonesian Communist Party) from the body politic.

    Nowadays, the threat is also an ideology which proclaims its internationalism, aspiring to force people to acknowledge a global sectarian allegiance.

    If the decent citizens who toted all those flowers into town seriously seek to preserve a civilised way of life from evil, they should appeal to President Jokowi to match his words –  – with deeds…

     

    …and stick to his plan to impose a ban, similar to that on the PKI, on Hizbut Tahrir and all other like-minded fanatic gangs who would place Indonesia under an international caliphate based on iniquitous shariah.

    At the moment, Jokowi is facing an uncannily similar situation to that which besets President Trump, whose good intentions are being thwarted by politically motivated people using specious court manoeuvres.

    Jokowi too is being urged to spend time pushing the ban through courts, and after the Ahok verdict, God only knows what Indonesian judges might do if faced with predictably raucous fanatic demos.

    All civilised countries should welcome any action against radical Islamists.

    Especially Australia, where timorous Turnsteer, like his predecessor, cowers from that sensible step – Grubbing for Sectarian Votes – Labor Vies With Mufti’s Mate Malcolm!  – which would be welcomed by millions of patriots!

      You know Ross that the Jakarta Post wont ever be straight about the Islamists. They are under the thumb as long as theyre owned by the book burners Gramedia.
      I dont know if this radical/conservative is just bad journalism or if they want to confuse people but I will never trust anything they say.

    Oldies But Goodies – AMAC for REAL American Seniors! 


    This is MY illustration, not AMAC’s!

    One hopes they appreciate my idiosyncratic humour!

    ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

     

    AMAC – The Association of Mature American Citizens is now over 1,300,000 Members Strong!

    AMAC vs AARP

    “It was quite strange, almost surreal. I had just heard the news story about Harry Belafonte, who had met with, kissed and hugged Dictator Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, calling President George W. Bush “the greatest tyrant in the world, the greatest terrorist in the world,” when I picked up an issue of the AARP magazine that I hadn’t gotten around to reading. I was shocked to see AARP had awarded Belafonte its Impact Award for doing things “to make the world a better place.” Even the staunch Democrat congressman Charles Rangel was so upset he chastised Belafonte for talking about our president in such a manner.”
    -AMAC Founder, Dan Weber, 2006==========

    I had been looking for bits and pieces to do another post on Cameron The Liar, the UKPM who is busily reneging on promises to get EUSSR treaties changed.

    His Mendaciousness is getting so much stick about that lie, people may be forgetting his others.

    So it seemed we should also focus again on the Big Lie about overseas voters. Brits absent from Britain for over 15 years will be denied a chance to take part in the referendum.

    But my search had me stumbling over this, about how senior cits in the USA are disentangling themselves from a rancid pinko front that serves as a geriatric running dog for Obama.

     

    Rabid-Dog-for-OS

    Yes, I have posted on this before but that was three years ago….

    U.S. Seniors Fighting the Enemy Within! AMAC OK! 

    ..and none of our many American readers, any more than I, are impervious to the aging process. 

    So here you are! 

    That was the moment when Dan Weber – a family man, small business owner, and Air Force veteran – decided that he had seen enough from AARP. It was the final straw. He could no longer in good conscience remain a member of AARP. He looked for an alternative, only to discover that there weren’t any.

    Recognizing the need for an organization that not only provided great benefits, but also didn’t use his membership dollars – not to mention taxpayer dollars in the form of government grants – to advance a hidden liberal agenda, Dan tore up his AARP card and built an alternative: The Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC).

    AMAC, the conservative alternative to AARP, has become a modern day David vs. Goliath story. While both AMAC and AARP provide great benefits, that’s where the similarities end.

    If you haven’t chosen AMAC over AARP yet, you may want to reconsider.
