    France24 Fails The Burkini Balance Test, Again! 

    Again this morning I subjected myself to France24, and again, expecting a total lack of impartiality, I was not disappointed.

    Appalled, yes, that they chose to stock their media show with ‘Paris-based journalists,’ all shrill left-libs, at least two of them non-French, all of them ranting their glee at the Council of State’s ruling against the burka ban.

    Christopher DICKEY – Foreign editor at the Daily Beast

    I checked him out via wikipedia….

    In 1983-1984, Dickey was an Edward R. Murrow Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations…He frequently comments about breaking events on MSNBC, CNN, France 24, BBC TV, BBC World Service and Al Jazeera, as well as other local, national and international broadcasts.


    Anne BAGAMERY – Senior Editor, Intl. New York Times

    Working for the most notoriously left-liberal American newspaper, she recently took French nationality, the easier, I suppose, to carp and whine about the views held by most of her fellow-citizens.

    The other two were –

    Patrick SMITH  – Editor in Chief, The Africa Report


    Leela JACINTO – International News Reporter, France 24

    The latter pair may or may not be French. Maybe readers know.

    But whatever, it was tiresome to listen to them, all harping on the folly of France, not one of them on the side of the majority of the French people (64% as we mentioned a day ago ) and they all chortled in comradely fashion at cartoons mocking the ban.

    It is their right, of course, to harbour such contempt for the people of the country they live in.

    But does France24 not have any duty to bring on at least ONE patriotic French journo who sides with his or her own people?

    If the panel were in any way a reflection of the mood of the nation, there’d be two or three out of four, with pinko shrills in a minority, but for pity’s sake….could that channel, if only for the sake of a semblance of balance, find even ONE dissenter from the left-liberal in-crowd’s pro-burkini consensus!   

    Or as I wondered yesterday…


      … is the French press so permeated with bias that France24 can’t find ANYONE to give balance to these disconnected creeps?

    I had a quick flick to satisfy my curiosity, and duly unearthed this fascinating study about the behavior of the French media during the campaign for the 29 May 2005 referendum on the Treaty Establishing a Constitution for Europe.  http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0176268005000777

    EU - referendum vote

    The media were biased in favour of the Treaty….leading people who felt that the media were disconnected from the people’s concerns to vote against the Treaty.

    Interesting. Times haven’t changed much!

    While no dissenting presence was permitted on this morning’s panel, a few views contrary to the media in-crowd’s were allowed a brief hearing.

    The best was that of an Iranian exile, a real refugee, not one of Mama Stasi Merkel’s shariah imports but a brave Muslim lady, who actually knows something about the realities of Islamist iniquity.

    Her name’s DaryaSafai…

     Darya Safai

    …and she put the issue in perspective.

    .“They grow up in a society where women learn to be subjugated, like we put a dog on a collar and they learn to obey us.”

    France24’s dogs bark, and the appeasement caravan rolls on.

    PKI Belum Mati? Public Funds and Pinko Propaganda! 

     As predicted, another fine sunny morning here!


     Been meaning to follow up on an interesting report in the Jakarta Globe, about how parliamentary questions are being asked about some $11 million of public funds splurged on participation in the Frankfurt Book Fair.

    teguh-juwarno Teguh
     “There were complaints about the presence of certain groups,”  says Teguh Juwarno, a legislator for the Islamist PAN party.
     I’m not exactly a fan of Teguh, but I’d say he’s quite right to go through expenditure of millions with a fine-tooth comb.
    Except that he falls straight into that most annoying habit we find here, intentional opacity.
    Certain groups?
    What the heck does that refer to?
    No further concrete info from Teguh, nor the Jakarta Globe, which adds that these unspecified groups of people had managed to steer discussions at the book fair into a direction that the Indonesian Foreign Affairs Ministry considered undesirable…

    But Teguh’s further words give us a clue. 
    He said his commission had received complaints from embassy staff and diplomats abroad about Indonesia’s representation at the fair.
    And back to the Jakarta Globe, which plays detective in the absence of any positive ID from Teguh.
    Presumably, Teguh was insinuating that there had been unease among Indonesian officials about the prominent role at the event of books dealing with the 1965 anti-communist purges..while it was supposed to have been all about promoting Indonesia as “17,000 islands of imagination.
    pkiposter PKI – a violent thug party
    As we all know, the PKI, Communist party of Indonesia, is outlawed here, a direct consequence of their attempted ‘kudeta’ in 1965.
    The public in general are fiercely anti-communist still, as we saw during the Presidential election last year, when attempts were made to smear President Jokowi as pro-communist.
    This was obviously done to harm his campaign, and his campaign’s energetic – and successful – effort at refutation indicate the electorate’s anti-communist outlook.
    Since the Reds were importing weaponry in vast quantities in 1965, supplied by Mao’s marxist tyranny, there’s little doubt that the PKI threat was very real.
    Yet there is constant agitation, spurred along by both the Jakarta Globe and its ‘rival,’ the Jakarta Post, to rehabilitate the totalitarian hypocrites in that party.
    This is dressed up as concern for those individuals either wrongly accused of communism or victimised purely because they had kin in the PKI or its various affiliated front organisations, like LEKRA, the ‘intellectual’ gang whose leading light was Pramoedya…

    I’ve referred readers to Tempo, issue May 16-22, 2006 before, but must once more do so, for it covers the evil old Red’s career rather well and explains why some 25 “prominent literary figures and cultural observers” put their distinguished names to a formal submission to the Magsaysay Award Committee in 1995, protesting at that body’s decision to give Pramoedya an award.


    Pramoedya the Red


    Their reasons were simply stated, viz 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 )

    ...but neither of those ‘revisionist’ papers seems able or willing to make a sufficently clear distinction between the above categories – who do indeed deserve sympathy – and vicious old PKI hacks who have never repented their evil ideology.
    We’ve noted this problem often enough.

    It’s a free country and if the JG and the JP want to lament the woes that befell communist traitors, they are entitled to do so.

    As they are entitled to afford present-day foreign marxist malignants a platform to advance their causes. 

    Jakarta Post Lets Oz Red Urge Show Trial for Morrison! 

    However, in this case, if the allegations reflected in the JG report are correct, it’s not just pinko journos but government funds that have been enlisted in the revisionist cause.
    If the theme of the state-sponsored stand in Frankfurt was designated as boosting tourism, then stocking it with books by left-leaning authors was totally out of order.
    Not so long ago, we posted on the claims by various Islamist fanatic sources that the communist menace is alive and well.  
    Geriatrics V IslamoNazis – Jakarta 1965 – Whose Victims Were They? 
    I treated those ranters with some degree of scepticism, partly because of who they are, and partly because, knowing plenty of ordinary Indonesian folk, it seemed highly unlikely the PKI or any new version thereof, could ever gain a foothold here.
    But the news from that book-fair in Germany does make me wonder – and it has plainly made a lot of Indonesians wonder as well.
