    Another Damn Dog-Collared Appeasement Monkey! 

    Only this week, I dug out my artificial Christmas Tree- living in Jakarta is not like my boyhood days in Perth County, Ontario, when we’d walk a little ways from the farm-house and cut one down!


    Being in Indonesia, I often have Muslim guests and they are not in the least ‘offended’ by my modest festive decorations.

    On the contrary, they like the way my home is cheerier at this time of year! And I’m cheerier too.

    Until I read the news from Italy…

    It’s really quite hard not to pour scorn on the pathetic and pusillanimous priest who is so eager not to ‘offend’ that he has cut back on the celebration of Christ’s Nativity at his church in Cremona, in Italy.

    Let’s just say I am sick and tired of pinko pukes of all denominations, all parties and all nationalities who bleat about how one must never ‘offend’ ethnic or religious or ‘gender’ minorities, yet who simultaneously, sedulously, go out of their way to offend US!

    And by ‘us,’ I include all the Christian Italians in Cremona for whom a priggish clown, ‘Father’ Sante Braggie, has shown utter contempt, OFFENDING even the priest who previously ministered to the same congregation….

    “We cannot renounce our culture and traditions. That would be an unpardonable weakness. I am,  for the time being at least, in Italy, not Saudi Arabia.” Braggie’s predecessorFather Oreste Mori

    ….by cancelling Christmas, or at least an integral part of the Christmas Season…

    …there would be no nativity scene at the local cemetery this year as it could offend people from other faiths whose relatives are buried there….a small corner of the cemetery is reserved for Muslim graves.

    “A crib positioned within sight of them could be seen as a lack of respect for followers of other faiths, hurt the sensibilities of Muslims, as well as Indians and even atheists.       


    Hey, Sante, your duties are located in a church, right?

    The church is obviously visible to people of all creeds and of none, right?

    Shouldn’t you demolish it, lest non-believers get all ‘offended’ if their business or social activities require them to be within sight of such an ‘offensively’ Christian structure?

    But that would be unfair on the genuine Christians who are not embarrassed by their faith, right?

    So a better idea, then.

    Just remove your priestly collar, which you disgrace every time you put it on, and…

      As ever, you express what so many of us feel when we hear that ‘offended’ word, and as you also note, it’s not even those said to be in danger of being ‘offended’ that make an issue of it,
      How many ‘Muslims, Indians or atheists’ complained, or would complain?
      I’d suggest as many of your heterogeneous house-guests as complain about your Xmas tree, in other words, none.
      This priest should be unfrocked, because he is more interested in political correctness than preaching the Gospel.

      Good one, Ross.

      Altogether too much carry-on and touchiness about religion here and in Cremona. If people dont like what they see or hear, they shouldnt look or listen.

    Big Mackistan? Ramadhan Lock-Out at McD Sarinah? 


    I used to spend a lot of time in the Sarinah area, back when Jalan Jaksa was fun and Baku Dapa was open, so when making one of my occasional returns to that part of Jakarta, I like to wander in and see what’s doing.

    Since the terrorist attack earlier this year, it’s all the more important not to avoid the area.


    This week I felt like doing some writing and thought it would be nice to sit out on that first floor terrace/balcony that arose as part of the McDonald renovation a few years ago.  

    With plans to meet up at Ya Udah for beer-chat in the evening, off to town I went mid-arvo, and dismounted from the TransJakarta Busway at 3pm.

    • busway


    I climbed the big frontal stairway and turned left along the narrow terrace, which I noticed was partially blocked by a couple of chairs at the approach to the McDonald section but that’s not unusual, so I easily manoeuvred my way past…

    ….and lo…!



    Every single chair and table ahead of me was up-ended, stacked as if for storage!

    Bemused, I moved to open the door into the interior, where customers could be seen – that door was locked!

    I moved around the corner of the building, tried the other door. Locked also!

    So, defeated, I retraced my steps, having realised what was amiss.

    Ramadhan. There’s no other logical ( ! ) explanation. 


    Ramadan fasting: It’s about discipline, reflection, humanity

    Or so says the Islamophiliac headline in the LA Times. http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/ramadan-fasting-itrsquos-about-discipline-reflection-humanity/ above an article which includes these admirable words.

    Ramadan is a perfect time for Muslims to advance their relationships with neighbors and community, helping to improve the understanding of the true Islamic character in a free and open society.

    Given that attitude, which is indeed shared by many Muslims in Jakarta, I find it incredible that a major multinational like McDonalds could slither so easily into crass intolerance, childishly rendering their outdoor area neither free nor open!

    To what purpose?

    The only people who might be ‘offended’ by folks having coffee or burgers on the terrace would be those who were having coffee or burgers within.

    Non-fasters – who ipso facto wouldn’t give a rat’s ass!

    Photo from Sarinah Busway bridge – can YOU see who’s eating or drinking?


    Of course if people on the Busway bridge had binoculars and were DESPERATE to be ‘offended,’ they could train their field-glasses on the terrace.

    Or maybe people in the car-park below, if truly craving spiritual affront, could peer up at sinful guzzlers? 

    But even if they scaled the car-park perimeter wall, and stretched themselves to their tallest possible height, they’d still be hard-pushed to catch a glimpse of any sinful cups and plates, except when the sinners raised them to their lips.  


    devil destroyed


    Seems a dull way to achieve ‘offended’ status even for the most dimwit sectarian fanatic.

    Downstairs, of course, they have draped their windows with those silly ‘fasting’ curtains, to prevent passing fasters resisting temptation, exercising the spiritual discipline, that’s supposed to be part of Ramadhan.

    I know a few Islamists do look in on this blog to read my protests at the Arabisation of Indonesia.

    Perhaps one of them might explain how this Big Mackistan policy of denying non-fasters a place in the sun is justified?


    PS I don’t know if that other catering outlet in Sarinah is still up to its old Islamist antics…

    Cold Comfort at Chili’s, in Ghost-Town Jakarta! 

    …I have eschewed the place since I published that report four years ago. Perhaps some reader can advise?

      All you say here is true. We do not need to make life dificult for people not fasting. It is our choice to fast and you must be free to have choice not to fast.
      This terrace-closing at McD is not our Indonesia way, maybe more like Arab Saudis or Pakistan. Very funny your Big Mackistan and I laught with you at the silly thing they do.

      Mister Bule you should not eat while we fast. It is not respecting us so it is offending us. If you want eat, go home. Indonesia is Muslim and you are not.
      Understand this and you can be happy.
      If not happy, leave.

      I was down there the other day, Ross and I walked into McDonalds and customers upstairs were locked in. Access only from the internal stairs. Youre correct, no good reason for management to do this.
      I didnt check out Chillis, never went back after that stupid beer ban you were on about. Restaurants that dont respect customers dont deserve custom.

      You do no harm to eat on that terrace. We have our fasting month but may not stop you to eat, same like you do not stop us to fast. McDonald is wrong to lock doors.
      It is a stupid thing for them to do and I can not understand it.

    ‘Offended’ By Crusaders? Shape Up or Ship Out! 

    One does become fatigued with constant foot-stamping by whiners about how British people live in Britain, whether about their children’s liking for pork in school dinners or for piglet pictures in kindergarten books. 


    • tantrum
    • ————
    • Are the whiners really so easily ‘offended’ by aspects of the country which they or their parents should surley have known of, when they chose to settle there?
    • But if Islamists  – or anyone else  –  feel ‘offended’ by reminders of the country’s heroic history, in this current case the English role in the Liberation Wars known as Crusades, then they don’t deserve the privilege of living in England.



    Or indeed in France, whose Christian soldiers also served in those ferocious campaigns about a thousand years ago to free the Holy Land from Saracen invaders.

    • ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
    • jerusalem Old Jerusalem
    • ————-
    • But there’s something much more offensive than those splendid Crusader outfits sported by English soccer fans, for the forthcoming European Championship games in France.

    It’s the BBC’s iWonder website, which  has questioned whether the outfits are appropriate given that “crusaders were the perpetrators of violent attacks on Muslims…”    http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/you-re-offending-muslims-english-crusaders-warned-0xs0msdtb

    All the Middle East back then had been subjugated by violent attacks, by Islamic armies. Crusaders went there to undo that subjugation.  

    How the French respond to this kind of typical BBC cr%p is up to them, but England is a Christian country, HM The Queen the head of its Established Church.

    So every Englishman and Englishwoman is fully entitled to take pride in their forebears’ exploits in those brave attempts to roll back Islamic aggression.  

    Just look at the map of caliphate expansion.




    Had the Crusaders succeeded in rolling back those invaders, back into the Arabian Peninsula whence they had originally emerged, there might well be no ISIS holed up in Syria and Iraq, nor Hamas in Gaza.

    And Libya might never have become a base for crimmigrant incursions!

    Who knows for sure, but…

    Those warriors of old did their best.



    Nice to see today’s footie fans retain a healthy spirit of Englishry.

      Should never be ashamed of the crusaders, they were freedom fighters and the Saracens were the agressors.

    God V New York Daily News – Civilised Protests Shame Savages! 

    How often have we had to read about savage ignoramuses ‘offended’ by this or that perfectly legitimate behaviour by other people, and the risk of a violent hoodlum response on the part of the poor ‘offended’ morons?


    • sorry2
    • ———————–
    • Now here below is an example of how CIVILISED people behave when offended –


    It’s a petition from AFA. They are Christian activists who do a lot of good work on a lot of issues. That doesn’t mean I endorse all they say or do.

    On this occasion, they are up in arms about a headline in the New York Daily News, which asserts that ‘God isn’t fixing this.

    The NYDN was taking a media pot-shot at conservative Americans joining in prayers after the Islamist atrocity in California.

    Typically, the hack behind the front page was exploiting innocent deaths to score points on gun legislation. One is used to that sort of gutter journalism.

    But it’s the perceived challenge to God that has upset the AFA.

    Personally, I’d have thought that even media pinkos would notice that, if any issue is highlighted by the mass-murder,  it is that of immigration, ineffectual vetting of primitives oozing into America.


    • ————————————
    • As for God, I have long had some questions about what He decides to fix or not fix.  Whacking all those Egyptian first-born, for example, never did make sense to me.
    • In any case, He is powerful enough to handle by Himself anything so puny as a pinko hack’s jibes.

    My point is – the AFA show us, remind us, that when you’re offended, on behalf of God or for any other reason, you can react as civilised human beings – peaceful protest.
