    Bravo, Jogja Muslim Students – Freedom Fighters Enrage Jihadist Jerks! 

    Jogyakarta’s Sunan Kalijaga State Islamic University (UIN) last Wednesday earned a gold star for academic freedom, despite the shameful efforts of its Rector to appease Islamist louts.

    A ranting mob of jihadist jerks – the Jogjakarta Islamic People’s Forum (FUI) had arrived to demand the students scrap plans to watch a controversial film about the aftermath of the PKI Communist Party’s thwarted coup in 1965. Luckily, and unusually here, the uni security had taken steps to stop the hoodlum rabble gaining access to the campus.

    The Jakarta Globe  tells us that the defences were reinforced by students who were prepared to fight the mob!   http://thejakartaglobe.beritasatu.com/news/islamic-hard-liners-fail-halt-senyap-screening-yogya/


    Hallelujah! Or, since the heroes of our story are Muslims, Alhamdullilah!

    No matter what your religion, the news that young people would square up to fanatics is not just a breath of fresh air but a gladsome gale to every honourable heart in this archipelago,

    But a black mark indeed to the Rector, Ahmad Minhaji, who preferred to try wheeling and dealing with the forces of darkness.


    Minhaji Mealy-mouth Minhaji


    He apparently attempted shuttle diplomacy between the mobs of protesters and students, and endeavored to persuade the organizers to resume the discussion without screening the film.

    Pak Rector, your job is to champion academic freedom, NOT to act as middle-man between its defenders and its foes. Good on your students, for having none of your appeasement cr#p.

    They insisted on screening the movie!

    Instead of applauding his young students’ stand for freedom against Islamist thuggery, unspeakable Ahmad then appeared in apologetic mode before the mob, telling them that those inside were young students who only wanted to learn about and discuss history.

    What a mealy-mouth! The proper thing to say to the likes of the FUI is SOD OFF!



    This picture was taken in another university, in Surakarta, where the university authorities buckled cravenly to a similar rabble. We covered that here-  Academic Freedom in Java – College Cowers From IslamoNazi Gang!

    I haven’t seen the film. It’s called Senyap. Maybe I will sometime, but it hasn’t made it into the cinemas so far. I wonder why?

    I do wish the democratic anti-communists would make a movie. They should, showing what rotten totalitarian hypocrites the PKI were (and are – some of the surviving old ratbags have yet to repudiate their evil marxist creed)

    Time for Indonesia’s Red Reprobates to Face Their Guilt! 

    pkiposter PKI -put down by patriots – anti_communism_by_leandrotr

    The vicious 1960s intimidation, the book-burning (in which the intolerant old nasty, Pramoedya was prominent – 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 )

    … and the importation of those 10,000 rifles from their Beijing pay-masters would make a great action movie that would teach young Indonesians that the current attempts at revisionism should be handled with care!



    Alas, what passes for the ‘intelligentsia’ here is hopelessly comsymp, desperately trying to rehab the red vermin. The Jakarta Globe is no better than it should be, and the report I’ve based this post on is marred by the inability of its author to keep his own pinko opinions out of what should be an objective news story. Get this for partisan presentation – 

    The mob outside insisted the rector disband the event, saying they believe the film aims to revive communism in Indonesia — which it does not — and revise history as they understand it — which in fact the film does, and admirably so, critics say.

    Nobody could be more hostile to the mob outside than me. Not having seen the film, I don’t know if they’re correct in their view that the film aims to revive communism in Indonesia.

    But JG readers don’t need some left-lib smart-ass to tell them whether it does or not. Equally, his opinionated  quote of some nameless critics who think the film revises history admirably  is a gratuitous prejudicial intrusion – whatever happened to objective reporting? 

    But that’s the Jakarta Globe, of course.

    IslamoNazi Thugs Threaten Hotel Over Valentine Ad! 

    Well, it’s that time of year. 

    • Sejumlah massa dari Front Pembela Islam (FPI) melakukan aksi di depan Gedung Mahkaman Konstitusi (MK), Jakarta, Rabu (27/1). IslamoNazi FPI in action
    • ——————————————-

    This gangster group is evidently echoing more sedate condemnation in the news a few days ago, viz. –

    The Deputy Secretary-General of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI), Tengku Zulkarnain reckons that that there is a systematic attempt to destroy the morals of Indonesia.


    tengku zulkarnain-mui- Tengku


    Much like Hillary’s ‘vast rightwing conspiracy’ in the USA, this threat appears to be hydra-headed, but the only concrete example Tengku appears to be offering is that of ads plastered about in public and read by the whole community…“all working together to destroy the morals of the nation’s children,” said Tengku.

    I only caught up recently with the protests by these self-styled ‘scholar’s about obscene billboards advertising cigarettes..

    “Mula2 Malu2, Lama2 Mau!” More Uptight Antedeluvian Censorship! 

    But there’s another billboard causing uproar among the uptights



    It seems there’s a problem about this Valentine promotion – the Batu Wonderland Hotel provides a 50% discount for guests staying with a girlfriend on weekends during the month of February – but please note, that’s just one translation.

    The hotel’s located in Malang, East Java. It sounds like a good deal – an overnight train-ride from Jakarta, if anyone fancies the trip! I’ve only gotten to know one person from there, a real charmer – cheers, R, if you’re reading! 

    But this takes us back to Tengku – he’s quoted complaining that community members are not aware that the ad looks like it was intended to legitimise adultery or free sex.   http://www.hariandepok.com/23503/mui-ada-upaya-perusakan-moral-bangsa

    Was he rabbiting about the cigarette ads, now of course withdrawn – or about the hotel ads?  

    I had a look, as can you, at the ad pictured above, and it refers not to pacar, girl-friend, but to kekasih, which usually means ‘darling,’ or ‘beloved.’

    Of course many of us can – and probably do – say ‘darling’ to anyone!

    But equally – probably – a lot of guys say it to their wives. The interpretation depends on the mentality of those who read the ad.

    A matter of finding what you choose to look for? 

    Which is more than we can say about the clear, unambiguous assertions on other matters by some of Tengku’s MUI colleagues.

    Not least, the unspeakable Ma’aruf Amin, who, as….


    • ma'arruf amin  Ma’aruf

    …MUI Deputy Chair, made that infamous comment that FGM is a ‘human right!’    https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2013/03/06/clitoral-clip-no-scraping-suffices-tell-us-islamist-scholars-why-do-it/

    And then there’s the infamously blood-thirsty Al K.




    Sometime Hizbut Tahrir hate-group luminary, leader of the FUI (their posters include ‘Wipe Israel Off The World Map’) and the source of that horrid demand that Alex A’an, an obscure harmless atheist in Sumatra, be PUT TO DEATH for his observations on religion. Muhammed Al Khatthath has been allowed to hold high-level positions of responsibility in the MUI, despite his sectarian notoriety. .

    Tengku really needs to get his act together, and apologise for his disgraceful comrades  – that would be doing something positive to preserve the morals of the nation’s children, by disowning rabid fanaticism.




    But he won’t.  

    At the start of February, EVERY year, MUI ‘scholars’ are too busy gearing up to tell kids how morally corrosive sending Valentine cards can be.

    Pathetic, really.

    Jakarta’s Anti-Governor? 

    This is the Man Who Would Be King…or at least Governor of Jakarta!


    FahrurroziIshaq_Kompas ================================================================================

    Unfortunately for him, the real Governor, Ahok, is being sworn in today at City Hall, with 12000 police detailed to secure the event against any attempt by sectarian thug gangs to interfere with the constitutional process.


     ahok   Ahok


    Ahok’s ‘challenger’ is Fahrurrozi Ishaq, and he belongs to one of the most rabid hate-groups in Indonesia, the FUI. Not as infamous as the IslamoNazi FPI, the Indonesian Umat Forum is led by Muhammed Al Khaththath, who is well-known to our regular readers.



    – ———-                   Check him out on our previous posts. 

    Indecent Assault? ‘If You Don’t Like To Be Touched, Stay Home!’ – Islamist Fanatic

    Al K, as I like to call him, is a big buddy of Habib Rizieq of the FPI, and it was Rizieq who proclaimed last Monday that Fahrurrozi Ishaq should be the top man in Indonesia’s capital. Ishaq is apparently boss-man of another group, known as the GMJ,  Jakarta Peoples’ Movement.

    “Should Ahok become Governor, we will then also propose a Counter-Governor, the head of GMJ, Ustaz Fahrurrozi Ishaq,” said Rizieq Shihab  http://www.globalindonesianvoices.com/17320/fpi-proposes-fahrurrozi-ishaq-as-counter-governor-to-compete-ahok/

    Counter-Governor? Strange translation.

    Surely Anti-Governor has a finer ring to it? As in Anti-Pope?

    But never mind, he’s an ustadz just like Rizieq – it means cleric, and there is a superabundance of such people here in Indonesia, some of them the sort one might recognise as clergy, but many of a different stripe.

    Many Islamic Scholars Are ‘Former Prisoners and Thugs!’ Gosh! If WE said that… 

    What sort is Rizieq?

    habib_rizieq_temui_hasyim_muzadi Rizieq

    Well, he served time for his role in the Monas Riot of 2008, and he is known for his coarse and vulgar abuse of those who incur his displeasure – he called ex-President SBY a banci ( cross-dressing hooker) for not being sufficiently intolerant of the peaceful Ahmadi religious minority

    As for Ishaq, I’ve honestly never heard of him.

    But then one is known by the company one keeps. Al K and Rizieq are hardly ideal referees for any job.

    However, he modestly said he was ready to be named as a governor candidate to replace Ahok. He also believes that the people would prefer to choose him instead of Ahok…if Ahok is proposed again as candidate, he will not get reelected – at most only 1 percent of votes,” he said.

    Really? His jihadist comrade Al K also attempted a little electoral analysis, which made us all chortle vigorously. 

    Who Was Our Third Voter? Al K’s Fanatic Party Goes Nowhere, Fast! 

     Al K said Jokowi would get zero votes. Jokowi is now President of Indonesia. And Al K himself did pitifully in the legislative elections.

    Good luck to Ahok – hope the sun shines on his inauguration.

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

    A rare source today, CNN Indonesia, which reported that the IslamoNazi FPI (self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front ‘) is now claiming their hatred for Jakarta’s Acting Governor Ahok is not motivated by racism but by pure unsullied sectarian bigotry.


    • anfpi2
    • ================
    • This sounds a trifle unlikely.
    • It’s true that Islamist hate-freaks, similarly to normal Muslims  (please believe me, they are NOT synonymous – I welcome Muslim guests into my home at least once a week and when I go out to parties, I socialisee freely and happily with Muslims)  come in all the colours of the rainbow. And the same goes for Christians.
    • There are plenty of Chinese Muslims here in Jakarta too – Ahok, of course, is a Christian.
    • —————————————————————————————————————————-

    Nevertheless, let’s look at the background to this uproar, which has seen weekly demos, some of them violent (the IslamoNazis ran amok and injured over 20 cops last month outside City Hall) The demos are usually described as FPI but they work in tandem with another hate-group, the FUI, the Indonesian Muslim Front. 


    • ————-
    • FPI Deputy Secretary General, Awit Maschuri, insists that his white-shirt thug gang is not a racist organization…“If we were racist, we would be concerned about his Chinese ethnicity.” 

    FPI: Kami Tak Rasis, yang Penting Islam!

    “Just like the Balinese, who are not willing to be led by someone other than Hindus. It’s also important for us citizens of Jakarta to be led by a Muslim. Because in Jakarta most people are Muslims,” Awit said.

    What an unpleasant fanatic he is! If we had a contest between an honest Musllim and a crooked Christian (there are plenty of both in Jakarta!) sane people of all creeds would vote for the former. But Alwi? He would prefer some deadbeat, dictatorial or corrupt person to honest Ahok, just because one goes to a mosque and the other to a church?

    It’s inane.


    But let’s keep moving on.

    You’ll recall that when Ahok was the Deputy Governor candidate, Jokowi’s running-mate, ignoramuses tried to shout him down?Ahok, however, received boos and taunts — including “Jew” and “Chinese” from his rival’s supporters. Ahok was forced to pause frequently and speak louder.

    Jakarta Jew-Haters Boo Chinese Christian Candidate 

    Now we cannot prove that those morons who were haranguing Ahok were FPI members, but it does show that racism is a factor in the oppositon to him.

    But we don’t need to prove that the FUI is working hand in glove with the FPI in this controversy. It’s acknowledged by both groups.

    And we know what their leader had to say – we published a post at the time.


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


    Extract –


    ahok Ahok


    • I was prowling through the search engines, to see what the Nasties were up to, and I must admit, even I was shocked to find such a blatant racist outburst, even though from the blood-thirsty bigot Al Khathath, Secretary General of the FUI, Forum Umat Islam.
    • He’s one of the most fanatical Islamists in the archipelago, a man with a Hizbut Tahrir background who, despite that record, currently  holds a senior position in the state-subsidised MUI, the Indonesian Council of Scholars. https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2012/11/10/incandescent-islamist-holds-forth-in-scholars-hq/

    end of extract


     A city in China?
    Al K could not have made it plainer. He could have picked any place in the world to illustrate Ahok’s ‘arrogance.’ Paris? Tunbridge Wells?
    Westchester County in New York can be quite bad!
    Birmingham’s a tad sniffy (joke!)
    But the FUI Fuhrer chose ‘a city in China,‘ surely as racist a jibe as he could conjure up.
    There is LOTS of racist prejudice among pribumi here against the Chinese – and vice-versa, to be fair.
    Don’t think for a minute the Forces of Darkness would hesitate to exploit it.
    Having said that, they are no doubt only saying what they really think.

    Bravo, Tulungagung – Righteous Regent Challenges Jihadist Jerks! 

    A belated three cheers for the Regent of Tulungagung.


    Because I only got the news from a reader now, though the Regent’s admirable words were uttered a week or so back.

    And your next question is probably – where’s Tulungagung?



    Well, it’s way down in East Java, and it’s Regent is Syahri Mulyo. That’s him in the picture below.


    Syahri Mulyo, SE


    And now you want to know what he said that has earned my applause?

    Okay. He spoke up against plans by the FPI white-shirt gang to launch a branch of their vigilante sectarian outfit in his regency.

    He said that their habit in various areas was to promote anarchistic behaviour and to usurp the authority of police and other security forces.

    Hard for anyone to dispute that. Their brutal intolerance, violence and vandalism is notorious across Indonesia. We saw it in Jakarta only this month.

    Twenty Officers Injured – So Jakarta Cops ‘Negotiate’ With islamist Thug Gang? 

    “I do not speak of other regions, but only about Tulungagung region. For the sake of the common good, I once again urge it not to be done!” said Syahri.  http://regional.kompas.com/read/2014/10/06/19352821/Bupati.Tulungagung.Saya.Imbau.Jangan.Ada.Deklarasi.FPI.di.Sini

    But who was quick to be quoted on the side of the IslamoNazis?



    Why, none other than the local Chairman of the MUI, the Indonesian ‘Scholars’ Council. The MUI is subsidised by the Government and issues all kinds of bizarre fatwas, some just laughable, like that against yoga, others disgraceful, rants against peaceful dissenters, like  Ahmadiyah ‘ heresy,’ as if we’re stuck in the Dark Ages

    MUI’s Mohammad  Mahfouz Gus claimed there’s no legal basis, to reject the establishement of an FPI chapter. He invoked Home Affairs Minister Gamawan Fauzi’s disgraceful comment that ‘Indonesia still needs FPI.’

    Gamawan’s record on these IslamoNazis is as bad as his record as a local politician prior to being given the ministerial post by President SBY. In his own area, he imposed vicious shariah bye-laws that blatantly discriminated against women.



    On the FPI, you can see more of his collaborationist outbursts here.

    Shariah Minister – “Let’s ‘Coach’ IslamoNazis!” Why Not Hell’s Angels Too? 

    To be fair to MUI’s Gus, he seems to be arguing that since the IslamoNazis have not been banned nationally, any local attempt to thwart their plan could backfire legally.

    I post on this fairly (very!) unknown region of Indonesia for two reasons. .


    First, because it’s important people overseas DO understand that there are many good people here who have no time for these vicious jihadist hoodlums. Indonesians are 90% Muslim, but they are also, mostly, decent folk, not at all fanatical.

    And also, to remind you of the MUI’s record.

    Routine denunciations of violence are all very well, but all too often, their extreme fanatical diatribes can be used by jihadist jerks to justify thuggery.

    And of course the FUI (Forum Ummat Indonesia) leader working hand-in-glove with the FPI in the anti-kafir demos in Jakarta, Al Khaththath, is a rather senior MUI office-bearer himself!.

    Al– Khaththath a bloodthirsty bigot with a Hizbut Tahrir background  https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2012/06/15/another-nail-in-freedoms-coffin-indonesian-atheist-jailed-for-blasphemy/

    And never forget the shameful menace uttered by MUI supremo Amidhan. 

    Islamist ‘Scholars’ – “Don’t Complain if You’re Attacked!” 

    Let’s wait and see if the gangsters get started in Tulungagung.

    Warning – Fanatic Females Mobilise Against Ahok! 

    This is basically a traffic jam warning for any readers going into town today.


    • anfpi2
    • ==========================================
    • She’s urging all ‘beloved Musim women’ to show up at Jakarta City Hall today, where the most notorious sectarian gangs in the archipelago, the FUI and FPI, will pursue their hate campaign against the Christian Governor Ahok. This news comes via another old friend, Habib Idurs, the FPI Gauleiter in Depok, West Java – read about him on our older posts here.

    Habib FPI Depok Habib Idrus

    ————–and here –

    West Java – IslamoNazis Rant at Valentine ‘Virus!’ 

    • Idrus takes the trouble to point out that this is not about the arrest of 21 jihadist scumbags last week after the islamoNazis rioted and injured dozens of cops, but a Peaceful Action, to ‘thwart‘ Ahok’s elevation from Acting Governor to Governor, which is his constitutional right, since Jokowi has to vacate the capital’s top job when he is inaugurated as President.
    • —————————
    • ===============
    • I’m curious about these fanatic females. 

    Of course we know that psychotic bints from the UK, and elsewhere, occasionally zoom off to help the rape-gang called ISIS in the Middlle East. I’m no sexist, so of course I maintain there should be no discrimination in our treatment of those. Every ISIS pig corralled should be slaughtered.


    But Syarifah’s not at all like those demented sorts, remember – she wants a Peaceful Action! 


    If that happens, it will be different from the usual FPI style -they have a very long record of vicious violence, masked hoodlums amok.


    • demo-fpi-hi-foto-reuter-566-ok-500x272 Masked IslamoNazis in Jakarta
    • ————————-
    • But it’s important to be fair.

    Here in Indonesia, most women are delightful. They are smart, funny, and usually lovely to behold.


    I give you a few examples.

    There are many more, not least the outstanding Roro Fitria whom you can see in all, or at least most, of her glory, here –

    .So it’s only fair I offer you a look at the leading lady of the FPI, so you may compare and contrast, not just the words that flow from her shrouded head but also the beauty of the source from which those words flow.  



    Interestingly, the Kompas.com report makes no mention if Syarifah condemned the sexual assault on the female journalist by an IslamoNazi scumbag during the demo that turned into mayhem, or the beating meted out to the girl on the bike who just wanted to get through the rabble.

    But then if she follows the ideology of her husband, she equally sees nothing wrong with being denied equal inheritance rights because she’s a woman, nor the fact that Rizieq, her husband, may, if he wants, enjoy up to four wives while she may only have one spouse, nor of course that Rizieq, High Priest of the FPI, is not required to hide his good looks under a head-shroud, while she, sadly must.

    Indecent Assault? ‘If You Don’t Like To Be Touched, Stay Home!’ – Islamist Fanatic 

    A shocking report from Kompas.com tells of an indecent assault by one of the louts who attended the sectarian rally last week at Jakarta City hall.  Hundreds of haters, horrified that the Christian, Ahok, is due to take over as Governor of Indonesia’s capital city, descended on the city centre, as of course did many journalists.

    Jakarta Ethnic Cleansing? Murder Threat No Big Deal? 

    One of the reporters, a young lady identified as P, age 22, was sexually assaulted while covering the protests of the Islamic Defenders Front. The alleged perpetrator was a man about 40 years old, of short stature.



     P told Kompas that while she was looking for a safe place on the sidewalk (away from the crowds of protesters )  suddenly, somebody grabbed her from behind with both hands.

    She said she later saw the man alleged to have committed the sexual harassment,shaking hands with the Chairman of the Islamic People’s Forum (FUI) Muhammad al-Khaththath.


    al Khaththath Al- Khaththath


    RRA readers will know this fanatic, a leading light in the state-funded MUI (Indonesian Scholars’ Council) a bloodthirsty bigot with a Hizbut Tahrir backgroundhttps://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2012/06/15/another-nail-in-freedoms-coffin-indonesian-atheist-jailed-for-blasphemy/

    P bravely confronted her molestor, who of course denied all.  “He did not want to admit it. Instead he accused me of being a provocateur. I said to him, ‘Sir, I am a journalist.” Then he actually said:’ Yes, a journalist would deliberately try to heat up the atmosphere! ‘

    Shortly thereafter, police  finally came to intervene. According to P, the police officer asked her to back off, because the incident could potentially provoke the mob.




    That’s odd! 

    I passed a police station last week and I’m sure I saw a sign outside, something about ‘Protect and Serve.’ Maybe this cop hadn’t read it? Mind you, some cops here regard these rabid brutes as dashed fine chaps -remember how some defenceless children were consigned by police to Hizbut Tahrir and the FPI for spiritual guidance?


    But listen to P again!

    “What made me even more sick at heart, the FUI chairman even said, ‘It’s the way it is. If you don’t want to get touched, you should stay home indoors.”  .http://megapolitan.kompas.com/read/2014/09/24/19104201/Wartawati.Mengaku.Jadi.Korban.Pelecehan.Seksual.dalam.Unjuk.Rasa.FPI

    Disgusting, yes.

    But entirely in accordance with the pathetic primitive mind-set.

    We see it in the way they like their women drably shrouded in shapeless sacks and head-shrouds, not permitted to go outdoors unescorted, and in their mediaeval codes that deny women a fair share in inheritance laws.

    Women, to such as this, are sub-human. Any legal codes that legitimise such moronism should be outlawed.

    Hurt Feelings, ‘Racisits’ and Mob Rule – in Indonesia AND UK! 

    Last week I was about to post on a disgraceful example of rabble rule, a bunch of louts  arrogating to itself the right to determine what sort of meetings a university may hold.

    A radical group has threatened to use force to close down a seminar on LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) issues organized by Sanata Dharma University’s School of Psychology.

    Most readers will know I have no time for the gaystapo, who target decent values in the West.

    But a meeting in a college, to discuss such issues?

    Free speech under threat from savages?

    • voltaire


    Gotta speak up.

    “We have requested the seminar be cancelled. If not, we will cancel it by force,” Muhammad Fuad, leader of the Ka’abah Defender Movement, one of the elements grouped under the Islamic Society Forum (FUI), said on Wednesday.



    I wanted to urge the univeristy to stand firm. But I was overtaken by events.

    Tempo’s recent report says that Sanata Dharma University in Jogja cravenly cancelled plans for a seminar on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex on 27 September.

    I suppose no surprise is called for. The JP report had already indicated a degree of pusillanimity, the University Rector quoted thus – “We always have the option to cancel the seminar if we find out that it could hurt the feelings of some groups.”   http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2014/09/18/group-threatens-close-down-lgbt-seminar.html


    F### their hurt feelings!

    Universities in particular, and democracies in general, are not meant to be in the business of pampering tantrum brats.

    Hurt feelings?

    If that gal doesn’t show up, that you arranged to take to the movies, that’s hurt feelings

    If you thought you’d got the job, after that interview, but you didn’t – that’s hurt feelings


    • tantrum
    • =======
    • If you reckon your sectarian fanaticism should over-ride basic principles of free expression?

    THAT IS NOT HURT FEELINGS. That’s crass intolerance


    The Islamic People’s Forum (FUI)  had said the plan was insulting to Islam .

    Not so!

    Policies discussed would likely be in contradiction to that religion’s tenets, as to Christianity’s tenets and to most people here’s ideas of what’s decent and what is not.

    But to dispute is not to insult.

    The queers were not going to DO anything at the meeting, so I understand, no snogging or worse. They were simply going to discuss their ideas. I’d not much like listening to that, but tough – nobody would have forced me to do so.

    But in a betrayal of academic freedom, the Rector, Johannes Eka Priyatma, buckled and cancelled. Disturbingly, he did so after a meeting with the Jogja Police. Evidently they had little interest in defending people’s rights to free expression of ideas.

    And I find that pathetic. :http://www.tempo.co/read/news/2014/09/17/058607716/Universitas-Sanata-Darma-Batalkan-Seminar-LGBTI

    Yet no way can I single out Indonesia on this issue.

    I just watched the news from UK, where a ranting ill-educated rabble, including one whose grasp of English is so bad that he or she managed to mis-spell ‘racist’ – so no, it wasn’t my typo in the headline – who shut down an exhibition (with an H!) in London.

    Intelligent people would have urged a boycott, if they found it unacceptable, but these Hitlerian bootboys (and girls) decided to suppress free expression – just like IslamoNazis here.


    Exibition? Ignoramuses!


    Because it depicted the evil of slavery by showing some black actors in chains.

    Do these yelping cretins imagine slaves, black or white, were NOT shackled? Did they get to dress in finery, walk about freely. Do the chains suggest slavery was OK? 

    Is historical truth unacceptable? 

    Evidently, because the organisers caved in to the morons!

      A seemingly sophisticated guy talking about “gaystapo” ?

        I suppose, Leo, that I’m not without pretensions, but pretension to ‘sophistication’ is not one of them, especially if it’s used in its proper meaning, which is not complimentary.
        I think gaystapo is a very suitable term for the sort of people who glory in intimidation of their opponents.

          According to The Concise Oxford Dictionary “sophisticated” simply means “educated and refined”, which sounds rather complimentary to me. About your justification for exercising the expression “gaystapo”, do you mean to articulate that gays are the sort of people who glory in intimidation of their opponents?

          Hello, Leo. I have been out all day since morning, so my apologies for not replying sooner. I see another commenter has grabbed the semantics issue, so I’ll skip that one.
          To your main question, ‘gays’ as individuals no doubt vary in their view on the intimidation meted out to those who oppose the ‘gay’ agenda, but it is very clear that their organised groups DO want to silence critics and/or punish them, and are currently using sympathetic judges in America to undermine democracy on such matters as marriage.

          Having a cynical nature myself, I agree with how you deal on a lot of topics; I also appreciate the way you use the English language. As a regular reader of your articles I’m aware you’re no novice concernining controversies and hyperbolic extravagances. Still to talk about gay extremists is in my opinion way too far-fetched (although I’m not denying gay activists are – rightfully – active around the world) and talking about gaystapo, suggests (which I cannot imagine) that you’re unaware of what the Gestapo stood for and what they were capable of! Linking gays with Gestapo simply makes no sense!

      I think Ross means the derivation from ‘sophistry,’ and he’s right.
      Sophistry is the art of using clever but actually flawed arguments to advance your case, So sophisticated carries a meanng of seeming to be better than the average but only in a superficial way.
