    US Fed Meddlers Back Racist Slogan? 

    Good for Home Depot, the company in the USA, if it’s true that they ordered one of their workers not to flaunt a racist war-cry on their premises.

    There are other issues relating to the uppity’s case, but it is shocking that a federal agency, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB…



    …should be sticking its beak in, meddling because Home Depot…’

    ….stopped the employee from displaying a Black Lives Matter slogan on his apron.. ‘

    Can you imagine if an employee of the NLRB showed up at work with a ‘White Lives Matter’ message emblazoned on his or her shirt?

    If the feds can answer honestly that such a mode of clothing would not result in harsh retribution, I’ll drop the issue.

    Vienna’s Green Fascist Meddles, Says Far-Left BBC! 

    At the request of Austria’s president, the posts of justice minister and interior minister would not be held by the same party.


    That’s a quote from a BBC report on Austria’s new coalition government. It’s attributed to Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, and it bears out the warning we issued a week ago.

    Will Green Fascist Try To Thwart Patriot Power In Vienna? 

    President Van Bellen won his high office by a narrow margin last year, but before, that, when the polls showed the green fascist might not win, and that Herr Hofer of the FPO could edge the old buzzard out…

    • ….we were oftimes assured that the Presidency was merely ceremonial, like the position of a king or queen in a constitutional monarchy, no intrusions into the party political sphere.

    • Not so, if that Europhiliac septuagenarian can now boss Kurz about to make sure the influence of FPO patriots is thus restricted.

    • True, Bellen u-turned on his previous arrogant assertion that he would defy the democratic outcome were the FPO to win the parliamentary elections.

    • But the ministerial meddling is something which should have been needs to be slapped down – Kurz’s failure to do so is an ominous sign.

    Prohibition Indonesia – Bali Exempt…Sort Of! 

    Had to get out and about last night to survey the expat reaction to the embryonic ‘creeping shariah’ diktat we’ve already covered here.



    Also to preempt the decree, by sinking as much vin rouge as possible – hence my delayed home-coming (fell asleep on the busway and ended up in Pluit) and my very late emergence today. 

    Not hard to gauge opinion – it was the first thing just about EVERYBODY at the party spoke about. My fellow-attendees included Brits, Canadians, Germans, French and Australians – there was a mood of restrained alarm, many a finger crossed that sanity might yet prevail.

    Some drew consolation from the fact that even government ministers must soon grasp that any such nationwide ban on booze would devastate Bali’s tourist trade.

    • And sure enough, a small grain of sense has percolated through. However, the ‘exemption’ of the Isle of the Gods is not as sensible as the Jakarta Post headline might lead us to hope.

    Instead of leaving well enough alone, the ‘exemption’ ensures that minimarkets, food stalls, street vendors and beachside vendors will no longer be allowed to sell beer or other beverages with an alcohol content of between 1 and 5 percent. Thirsty tourists will thus no longer be able to walk out of their hotels or flop-houses and buy a beer two yards  from the door. That’s how densely populated Kuta and Legian, at least, are, in terms of mini-marts.

    Instead, a cumbersome network of local government meddling is to be imposed. In Kuta, for example, six customary villages would establish village-owned enterprises to manage the hundreds of beachside beer vendors…

    Wayan Swarsa, chairman of the customary village council (MADP) is planning to establish an enterprise for Kuta, Legian, Tuban, Kerobokan and Kedonganan.

    No disrespect to Pak Wayan, but what benefits accrue from local councils running a business already running perfectly well in the hands of free enterprise?  The more state bureaucracies get involved – and I’m not singling out Bali here; it’s a nationwide problem – then the greater the risk of corruption.

    Of course by making these arrangements for Bali, the Government is displaying a clear disregard for all those other areas in the archipelago which aspire to attract tourists.

    Jogjakarta, with its magnificent architectural heritage, Lombok, Flores, not to mention Jakarta itself, are eager to bring tourists and their money to boost local economies.

    President Jokowi was Jakarta’s Governor, for pity’s sake, and knows this to be true.

    Meanwhile, back at the party, one Canadian demurred from the chorus of condemnation, reminding us that Ontario too has archaic, backward regulation of alcohol.


    Very true!

    But it is nothing like the nightmare vision the Indonesian Government offers us, not just the kind of priggish restrictions residents of Stratford, Kitchener and Mississauga must deal with, but a ban on the very act of pouring a beer down your throat on a tropical Sunday arvo.
