    Mangy Ole Dope Mealy-Mouths ‘Rohingya,’ At Last! 

    Gabbling incoherently, Dope Francis showed himself up as a gutless old git yesterday.

    ‘The presence of God today is also called Rohingya.’

    Pope calls refugees ‘Rohingya‘ in meet

    Like, duh,what the heck does that mean?

    If it means he cares about the Rohingya, we can draw our own conclusions from his failure ever to say anything like –

    ‘The presence of God today is also called Women of Cologne…’ 

    . when the Cologne Hauptbahnhof mass-molestation took place.

    They were all asylum seekers!” Told You So! 

    ‘Aaah, ze German Veecteems? Who geeves a sheet? Gotta respect ze aliens!’

    Dope! “Prioritise Migrants’ Dignity Over National Security!”


    What the timing of his utterance DOES mean is that he’s a creature consumed with moral funk.

    It’s been entertaining, almost, to watch the Ould Argie Dope getting stick from leftist ‘rights’ ratbags for not using the word ‘Rohingya’ when he was in Myanmar.

    His defenders tried to say it might have antagonised the Burmese military, and thus provoke their anger against Burmese Christians.

    So he imagines the military in Yangon don’t have TVs or newspapers? They didn’t hear his latest gabbling?

    Or must we draw a somewhat more rational conclusion, that he didn’t want to risk his own skinny neck?

    Damned yellow-belly moron!

      I saw on the news today he’s behaving exactly as you say, thinks we are all as stupid as he thinks the Burmese generals are.
      I don’t give a rats ass about Burma any more than Dope Francis gives a rats ass about all the Italian and German and Swede women who have been raped by his migrants.
      I do object when he insults the public’s intelligence by talking like he did in Bangladesh. He needs to be called out, like you say.
      Catholics should be leading the protests and by the way, I’m one.

    OMG – In Myanmar, Naughty Boris DARES Quote Kipling! 

    I am no big fan of Boris Johnson MP.

    He has turned his coat so often he could get a job as a fashion model.



    But what on earth are the Guardian shrills and the FCO mandarins getting their pink knickers in a twist about this week?

    Boris Johnson caught on camera reciting Kipling in Myanmar temple

    Foreign secretary’s impromptu recital of colonial-era poem was so embarrassing the UK ambassador was forced to stop him… 



    Maybe not every reader shares my delight in Kipling’s patriotic poetry, but I reckon he’s tops.

    I have quoted his works more than once on this blog…

    Silence of the Swine! ‘No Need For Further Lies, We Are The Sacrifice!’ 


    …and no doubt will do so again.

    But let’s examine what Boris did and did not say when he was reciting from The Road to Mandalay.

    He had got through the line: “The temple bells they say/ Come you back you English soldier.”

    Was that a call for a return to colonial rule?

    Far from it!

    As the Guardian helpfully tells us –

     Kipling’s poem captures the nostalgia of a retired serviceman looking back on his colonial service and a Burmese girl he kissed.

    Aaah, ‘it’s in his kiss,’ as a 1960s song had it!

    Gambar terkait


    Maugh Bo Bo, a Burmese doctoral student…said offence could be taken because the poem talks about kissing a girl, something that would be frowned on in the context of a temple.

    But the kiss in the poem did NOT occur in a temple, did it?

    Are the Burmese as uptight about a decent heterosexual snog as some other people…?

    Hey, Snoggers! Need Coaching? Contact Jakarta Police! 

    Or does the unspoken objection perhaps relate to a kiss between a white man and a brown girl?

    I’d have thought Kipling would merit applause from those who commend inter-racial harmony!

    And I’d have thought, too, there are better issues for the media relentlessly to batter Boris about…

    Sexist Saudis! BTW, Did Boris Vote To Affront Women’s Rights? 

    …and for the Foreign Office to be made to answer!

    • Pamela 21:54 on September 30, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      We never did get an answer to that, did we? Did our Foreign Office that’s always busy-bodying about and telling people how much the British Government cares about ‘human rights’ actually support the Saudis in that UN vote?
      If they won;t answer that simple question, then Our Man in Rangoon, or whatever they call it now, should keep quiet and let Boris quote Kipling as much as he likes.


    • Jacko 22:39 on September 30, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      I think Kipling’s great. He was the only poet I liked when I was at school.
      I don’t think Boris is great though. He’s a total twit.

    France 24’s New Game Show – ‘Kick The Lady!’ 

    Busy day today!

    I had to go into town.



    Being me, I arrived an hour before the appointed time, and decided to loiter in Kota Tua, Jakarta’s Old Town, a pleasant area to wander about.

    Whilst idling around Fatahillah Square, I got talking to a friendly old fellow selling coffee. After the usual questions about my origins and how long I’d been in Indonesia, he assured me that, although it had not featured on the tv news…



    …a mighty storm of gigantic hailstones had descended on Myanmar yesterday, destroying 200,000 Buddhist homes, God being on the warpath because Muslims were getting a hard time of it.



    I promised to check out Google News for more details. Perhaps detecting a certain scepticism, he insisted that it was definitely so, “just like the giant fireball storm” that God had visited upon Israel during the recent Temple Wall dispute.

    He was a genial chap, and utterly sincere.

    I wonder where he gets his info!

    Maybe, or maybe not, from France24, which I had tuned into in the morning for their every-half-hour news…


    …only, sadly, to catch the tail-end of their ‘film-review’ show, with Nasty Nesselson abusing her position as film critic (again!) to snipe at Donald Trump.

    Then we lucky viewers were treated to the France24 ‘Debate…’


    Hasil gambar untuk france 24 debate


    Why they call this blast of bias a ‘debate’ is a challenging question.

    A debate requires at least TWO sides, but, as often happens, they had three people on, all on ONE side, which appeared almost to be a contest, to see who could criticise Myanmar’s leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, most creatively.


    Gambar terkait


    The guests were a former French ambassador to Rangoon (Yangon) – that’s the capital of Burma (Myanmar) – plus an American named Phil Robertson, from that ‘Human Rights Watch’ NGO…


    Hasil gambar untuk san lwin blogger

    …and a Burmese blogger ( pictured above)

    Almost needless to say, each of these gentlemen had harsh words to say about the Nobel Prize-winning Aung San Suu Kyi  – she who was until recently so popular that a movie, ‘The Lady,’ was made all about her!


    And of course they have every right to make whatever criticisms they want to make about her, or anyone else.

    To be fair, and I have little time for much of HRW’s agitprop activity in other parts of the world, Mr. Robertson also accurately pointed out that a lot of the ant-Myanmar protesters were Islamist fanatics, making the most of the crisis.


    He even specifically mentioned Indonesia’s FPI, whose hateful and bloodthirsty banner I have often shown you…



    …and cheerfully show you again!

    That’s all very well.


    There are two sides to every story, and the very word ‘debate,’ as said already, REQUIRES at least two sides.

    There was NOBODY there in F24’s studio to speak for Myanmar’s lady leader as she was variously painted as a villain or a helpless plaything of dark forces, or as somebody playing a devious game.



    Maybe she is one ( or even all!)  of those things, but after watching such a slanted show, I tend to think that each or all of those pejorative nouns could just as easily be applied to France 24

      What is France24 trying to hide by refusing to give anyone from the Burmese Government an invitation to join the debate about their country?


    • Jeff Starner 20:21 on September 14, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      I’m glad somebody is asking the questions I am about how this whole story is getting presented in our free and fair mainstream liberal media.
      If they won’t give the Myanmar government a seat round the debating table, they must want to blind us to some part of what is happening. .


    • Stefan 20:55 on September 14, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      Now we are hearing from Guterrez at the United Nations that this is ‘ethnic cleansing.’ and I think he wants a war against Myanmar.like Clinton made war for the UN against Serbia.
      I hope the West will not be so stupid as to oblige with the lives of young NATO soldiers.
      If the Rohingya ARSA bring in Al Qaeda or ISIS then we should help Myanmar put them down.

      You should take the coffee man’s word for it, Ross, just like we all should.
      That way if God has the situation in hand, no need for all the palaver at the UN or sanctions or anything. Gigantic hailstones will do the trick!


    • JazPen 23:15 on September 14, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      This is more like your old style Ross. That part about the hailstones and fireballs was funny and it sounds just like the rubbish that we do hear from some people here in Jakarta..
      Its more enjoyable to read when you talk a bit more about where we are and then lead into the international issues you want to have a nag about.
      I dont always agree with some of your opinions but in this case I do. If the media hold debates they shouldnt shut out one whole side of the argument..

    ASEAN And ‘Rights’ – Empty Vessels Best Not Make Noise! 

    “In the end we remember, not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”


    The article is all about Myanmar, or at least the role of ASEAN, whose Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) was established in 2009, as part of ASEAN’s effort to respect human rights…


    • Indah P. Amaritasari

    Indah Amaritasari, the attractive academic who writes in the Jakarta Post, is concerned about the seeming inability of this outfit to do much, or anything, about the current situation with the Rohingya, but really, what else can one expect?

    If ASEAN were serious about ‘human rights,’ it would never have accepted Vietnam or Laos as members.


    The peoples of those two countries have not had the basic human right to choose the governments which rule over them for over forty years.

    Talking of human, or any rights, in Communist dictatorships, is akin, in its oxymoronic connotations, to talking about dry water.

    It doesn’t make sense.

    So why expect ASEAN now to have any significant impact in Myanmar?

    Not to mention the shortcomings on rights in other ASEAN members…

      Good Lord, Ross.
      You have turned subtle, that last part, where you don’t mention the murdered Ahmadis and the problems faced by Shia and Buddhists and those Christians in Bogor and Bekasi you write about so much.
      I think you can rely on your many readers to figure out what is meant.

    Borobudur Threat – Buddhists Fear Bigot Backlash! 

    Fake news articles and photos about the Rohingya’s suffering in Rakhine State have also been circulating on local social media, causing even more anger and frustration over the continued violence against the minority group in Myanmar.


    One does wonder about some of the stuff allegedly portraying the on-going Burmese mayhem!

    Not that maltreatment of religious minorities is a phenomenon that defies belief.

    Anyone aware of the crude Islamist brutality which the completely inoffensive Ahmadi minority…

    Indeed, some nasty bigots here apparently are already doing their worst to foment trouble.

    But they have also led to provocations against Indonesia’s Buddhist communities, with rumors of a demonstration to be held at Borobudur, the world’s biggest Buddhist temple, going around on social media.



    Borobudur is not only the world’s biggest Buddhist temple but one of Indonesia’s major tourist attractions. I’ve been there more than once.

    In recent years we mentioned it on our blog, because, given how ignoramus elements were intent on destroying Indonesia’s cultural heritage…

    …it was not unreasonable to assume they might set their sectarian sights on the mighty temple, which stands near Jogjakarta.

    Blasting Borobudur? ISIS, Enemies of Civilisation!  

    But long before this latest excuse for incitement, Buddhists have had every reason to be apprehensive.

      If the bigots want to help Rohingya then why do they not invite the Rohingya refugees to come live in their houses In Indonesia.
      That is a much better thing to do than to start threats to Borobudur or to Indonesian Buddhists.

    Fanatic Indonesian Islamists Plan Myanmar Jihad! 

    A little alarming to read that a petrol bomb was thrown at Myanmar’s embassy in on Jl. Agus Salim in Central Jakarta early Sunday.



    Gambar terkait


    I was only last week walking along that street, dropping by a nearby office to meet a friend.

    But I saw no signs then, among the everyday Indonesians walking to and fro, to confirm the rest of the sentence in that report, that anger grew across the mainly Muslim archipelago about violence against Rohingyas in Myanmar. 

    However, that’s just my walk-about impression.

    There undoubtedly are some people in this lovely archipelago who are greatly exercised about what’s going on.

    In East Java, the self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front’ aka FPI is reported to be sending volunteers to Myanmar for jihad…FPI Pasuruan region has reportedly opened registration of jihad volunteers to help Rohingya…

    FPI Akan Kirim Relawan Berjihad ke Myanmar

    Anyone interested in signing up who is between 17-20 years old, please note you need to bring a note from mummy or daddy to do so!

    Exactly how these ‘jihadists’ plan to ‘help’ is not quite clear. We sometimes hear Islamic spokesmen telling us that ‘jihad’ is not necessarily violent but rather can be interpreted as a spiritual struggle.

    However right or wrong that explanation may be, I think, given that the FPI has been photographed with a blood-thirsty banner parading their sectarian hatred around the streets of Jakarta…



    ….it is not unreasonable to assume that they may not be entirely committed to a peaceful approach!

    The white-shirted vigilantes are in any case notorious throughout Indonesia for their readiness to resort to violent tactics.

    Hence I suggest any readers who might be downtown on Wednesday should avoid the area of the embassy, since the white-shirt gang’s spokesman, Slamet Maarif, has advised the media that they’re planning another protest then.

      You missed a chance to talk about the Jakarta Post’s poor English grammar. I followed the link and see that they need to be taught that ‘prohibit from doing’ is how we speak, not ‘prohibit to do.’
      I know my own grammar is not that good, but you expect journalists to have studied English.

    But sad to see Jessica go home, She looked rather yummy tonight.

    As indeed did Indonesia’s ladies.


    But it was the panel which held me in horrid thrall, the spokeswoman, a not unattractive female but possessed of what is known, I believe, as a ‘New York Death Stare’ and a penchant for melodrama, plus an unkempt, rather rude, fellow who was apparently a photographer, and a bulky Asian geezer with a peculiar hair-cut and an attempt at an Old Etonian accent.

    Jakarta Globe, ‘Ethnic Rohingya’ and Westchester County New York! 

    …and now the ethnic Rohingya are the forgotten people ..

    • crimmigration
    • Hardly! We can’t switch on our tv sets or open any part of the media without having them in our faces!

    Needless to say, almost, the latest bleat comes from the Jakarta Globe.

    Both the major English-language papers in Indonesia tend to sound more like they are published in Westchester, New York.


    HUD targets liberal New York enclave for social engineering …

    That county is home to countless American left-libs, who voted overwhelmingly for The Manchurian and still love him. They also love to prattle on behalf of illegal immigrants, heedless of the fact that the burden of the crimmigrant invasion of the USA falls on working-class folk.


    BTW, I’ve been there, some years back, and had the ‘pleasure’ of being a guest in a typical Westchester home. As a guest, I politely bit my tongue while the elitist pro-parasite drivel was spouted, until at last, still polite, it was impossible not to refute some of their nonsense views.

    The remainder of the visit was stilted, one might say!

    Westchester is plutocrat territory, so it’s maybe no surprise that the JG, owned by a plutocrat family, echoes those supercilious prejudices.

    This week it’s poor Aung San Suu Kyi,  of Myanmar, who’s getting bashed, because she represents the views of her people. A year or two ago, left-libs were adoring her, because she was alleged to represent the views of her people.

    She was, they proclaimed, the democratic choice to lead Myanmar, if only those awful generals would heed the people’s voice. 


    • Aung_San_Suu_Kyi
    • ———————-

    Ms. Kyi is not being shrill, but she obviously sees nothing amiss with this majority opinion, so she’s not bowing to overseas pressure to flout the democratic will. She clearly doesn’t want Rohingya any more than most of her countrymen and women do. 

    This may be due to their Muslim creed, but maybe not!

    Is it not strange that they are just as unpopular in overwhelmingly Muslim Bangladesh? And not especially welcome in Muslim-majority Malaysia. Nor in Indonesia, which has nevertheless reluctantly succumbed to UN nagging (and Qatari largesse Emir orders $50m for Jakarta to host Rohingyas)  and allowed a lot of Rohingya in, despite past experience of their presence…  

    …and despite the fact that, as senior figures in Jakarta are undoubtedly aware, like most so-called ‘asylm’-seekers, most of them are phoneys – Ms Bishop said Indonesia’s director-general of multilateral affairs, Hasan Kleib, told her one boat carrying 600 people had 400 Bangladeshis aboard.  http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-05-23/bishop-says-most-of-7000-stranded-people-are-labourers/6491836

    What does the Jakarta man-in-the-street think?

    I haven’t seen any poll results, though the JG is running a survey,” keep ’em out or let ’em in, ” but given its moneyed readership, that is hardly going to represent public opinion.

    (You can help skew it if you wish, just go to the JG link above and you’ll see it next to the article –

    referndmlet peole vote – enjoy a vote!)


    Meanwhile we remain in the dark about people’s real feelings, though they probably are not what the JG’s academics think.

    But many will have been confused by the strident sectarian rhetoric.

    The IslamoNazis here, and many less rabid outfits too, have been beating the ‘Islamic solidarity’ drum! One might wish they’d demand that all those wasters boarding boats on the Mediterranean coast come this way too, instead of attempting illegally to invade Europe.

    After all, the financial burden undertaken would quickly be alleviated by Qatar. Nearly fifty million dollars already pledged for ‘Rohingya’ crimmigrants in Indonesia, and there’s lots more oil in them thar wells! 

    But Indonesian readers should consider carefully what they’re letting themselves in for.

    Arrogant Ingrate ‘Asylum’ Bludgers – Sweden Again! 

    I suspect people here have more concern for their country than most Swedes, who refuse to read the writing on the wall. ‘The Notion That All Immigrants Feel Gratitude? Something of a Myth!’
