    Ayo, Indonesia – Boikot Swinburne, Kecuali Si Bego Dipecat! 

    I see a media storm is breaking over that overbearing ass in Melbourne. 


    •   University of Swinburne’s Dr. Julian Oldmeadow


    No wonder – it’s been much of the day since I heard of his infantile tantrum and I’m still simmering. His bullying of young students will fuel the xenophobes in Indonesia, who never need much fuelling, but still welcome new opportunities to exacerbate tensions.

    It’s easy to bark back at the clown Oldmeadow. All bloggers bark, but how about some PRACTICAL steps in response?

    So I’ve been thinking.

    Having read what he surely doesn’t believe anyone will see as a meaningful apology – it’s riddled with an evidently engrained determination to push his own prejudice down everyone else’s throat – it seems to me that his employers should be faced with a clear choice.

    Stop trying to get their paws on the big bucks they earn by recruitment of Indonesian students …


    Show Swinburne is serious about welcoming young people from this rather nice country by dismissing the bully and hiring somebody more tolerant of other points of view.

    So how about sending them a message? Email contacts galore here- http://www.swinburne.edu.au/contacts-campuses/contact/

    Just say what you think of Oldmeadow, tell them they should fire the fool, and advise them that Indonesians do not enrol in foreign colleges to be treated like lepers by jumped-up babblers.


    Not that Swinburne is the only culprit.

    One of my commenters has brought my attention to the Australian Catholic University’s sudden establishment of ‘scholarships,’ to honour the dead drug-smugglers. Surely a novel concept of ‘martyrdom’  – even PM Abbott has expressed puzzlement over the Papal lapdogs’ Pablovian performance.

    And in fact the Catholic clowns in charge there are quite blatant in their intention to use the ‘scholarships’ as a means of indoctrination of young Indonesians into the left-lib absurdity that the death penalty itself is unacceptable.

    • Vice-Chancellor Professor Greg Craven Craven

    …the university’s vice-chancellor, Prof Greg Craven, said in a statement “in a small but symbolic way, the writing by Indonesian students on the sanctity of life would be an ongoing contribution toward the eventual abolition of the death penalty in Indonesia…”

    Muddying the waters again.

    The dead drug-smugglers – one issue. Capital punishment in general – another, separate issue.

    How many Catholic Australians, like decent Australians of all faiths and none, rejoiced, like me and most expats in Jakarta, when those Bali Bomb swine were put to death?

    Of course the death penalty is perfectly in order for heinous crimes like terrorist murder, among other things.

    These self-righteous college crack-pots need to be put in their place. Which is NOT in the political arena.

      I used to teach Indonesians too in the 1990s and a lot of them were so keen to go to Australia for their further education. Today’s crop of school-leavers must be having a few second thoughts about which country they want to spend three or four years in.
      Australia doesn’t benefit from making enemies of the best and brightest who will sooner or later be influential members of Indonesian society. As for that Catholic University, they ought to examine their consciences if they think gimmicks like these drug-smuggler scholarships are what a religious institution shoold be doing.

      My friend wants to study in Melbourne. I tell her never to Swinburne until Oldmeadow is gone from that place.
      Is good to see you get suport for this, I read in Bali blog too they want the bad teacher fired.

      I am an Indonesian currently studying at TAFE in a rural area in Victoria because my relative lives there and I experience discrimination when I was studying for my Diploma due to the executions conducted by the Indonesian government to the Australian citizens.
      The lecturer just didn’t mark my work, until the very last week when I told her, it is the last week of our meeting and I thank her in such a way that she marked my work at the end of the day.
      The mark was relatively low because my answers are filled with complex words and phrases while my Vietnamese classmate got a distinction for answers that are of low quality.
      Nevertheless, I don’t complain and now I move on to a better and tolerant rural place for my Adv Dip. But, I sometimes experience discrimination by some elderly people.
      I now regret choosing Australia as a destination to have my higher education.

        Sorry to hear about that, sir.
        Those leftwing academics are the most vindictive of people, in Australia and everywhere.
        We covered that case you commented on and I have personally assured many Indonesian friends that most Australians are not as stupid or nasty as the leftist lecturers.

    Arogansi Dosen Melbourne – Dasar Bego Diskriminator! 

    What a bloody disgrace!

     TRIBUN-TIMUR.COM is probably not the only Indonesia media source reporting that some A-hole academic in Melbourne punished innocent Indonesian students to assuage his inordinate anger after the drug-smugglers were executed last week.


    •  Oldmeadow
    • =========

    When I was teaching English in Jakarta, I taught many young people who hoped to continue their education in Australia. Since I was their teacher, it was not my place to impose my political or religious views on them.


    But sometimes we’d stage a debate for older teens, and it was very clear they were for the most part pleasant and fair-minded youngsters, excellent ambassadors for their country, uncontaminated with the fanatic drivel that afflicts the undesirable minority here.

    It’s exactly that sort of student who got kicked in the teeth by obnoxious Oldmeadow’s spiteful outburst.

    “…I would like to express grief, sadness, anger as an Australian and human being. I choose to do so by (a) stating my objections in the class, and (b) to say that I would ask for Indonesian students to not attend my class.”




    Shame on this arrogant bego!

    Frankly, I’d not have believed this story to be genuine, but I checked out overseas media and sure enough, it’s true. The clown has since been shamed into an equivocating apology, but if Swinburne University wishes to preserve its reputation, he needs to be dismissed.  

    A spokeswoman for Swinburne told Daily Mail Australia the university ‘treats all student complaints seriously and is formally investigating this matter.’


    We must wait and see.



    Meantime, Indonesian readers please note, DECENT Australians are as disgusted as I am by Oldmeadow.http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/opinion/deaths-reaction-way-over-the-top/

      Thank you for this.
      We are all very sad when we see this crazy man so mean to Indonesia students.
      I am also wishing for the university to fire him from his job.
      Teachers must never make the politics in the class room.
      But same like you say. I know many Australia people are very kind to the students studying there from here.

      This stupid man is not normal Australian. I work before with some Australian people, they are always polite people who want to help Indonesia.
      Yes, true to say Oldmeadow is bego banget. Big fool who cannot respect the young students who do no wrong with him. .

      Good afternoon to you, Ross. I saw this on another newspaper and knew you would be livid and would be saying so in your usual way.Well done! Bego is a great word to describe Oldmeandow.
      I cant see that anyone in his right mind will disagree with you except the Catholic begos in another Australian university who are setting up scholarships to memorialise the two drug smugglers.
      Some Australians need to get a grip.
      I am taking a week off just to defy the begos who want us all to boycott Bali, .

      Good Ross.
      Doctor Oldmeadow is so cruel to the students who pay so much money to study in his class in Australia.
      The drug men have been guilty, May be they get too much punishment. Big question.

      The students in Oldmeadow university are innocent. It is true they get too much punishment.No question.

      In Australia some university idea about justice is very mixed up I think.

      I think like Andriyono.
      The Oldmeadow is very bad teacher.
      My teacher was Australian and he never like that, always kind to me and to all student no matter where they come from.
      Indonesia student there in Swinburne must better move home or find good university in Australia with nice teachers..


      • Pandu 20:12 on May 2, 2015 Permalink | Reply

        Oldmeadow makes me very very angry.He should not work as teacher anywhere if he can do horrible thing like that to his students.
        I will directly to Swinburne Principal because many comment to them will make them serious for punishment against Oldmeadow.

      He was quite entitled to exclude whoever he wished from his class and he was quite right to be horrified by what Indonesia had done to those young men.
      If he made even one Indonesian think again about the mindless support they have been giving to their hero Jokowi, then Dr. Oldmeadow did something useful.

      Your own mindless defence of this country is boring. I interpret your postings to conclude you are past retirement age.
      So why don’t you act your age!
      All you seem to do is have your ‘visitors’ round, from Blok M I suppose, then go out to drinking parties. Stopping in between these edifying activities for a quick rant on this childishly conservative blog.

      Still, there isn’t much interesting to do here, I grant you.
      I can hardly wait till it’s time to leave and shake the dust of Jakarta off my shoes forever.


      • ross1948 16:22 on May 3, 2015 Permalink | Reply

        As Dr. Johnson said about another city, ‘tired of Jakarta, tired of life.’
        I honestly feel sorry for anyone who finds our fine city boring.

        You don’t have visitors? (mine come here from all over town, BTW)
        You don’t like a drink?
        Again, another quote comes to mind, about your obvious potential for immortality – ‘ how can a man die, if he’s never lived.’

      I don’t like your politics, not one little bit, but you are right about Jakarta and Expati is wasting his life if he can’t enjoy it here.
      I haven’t been here as long as you but I love the city and the way things never go as anyone back home would expect. Bored is as bored does, and in Jakarta nobody has any excuse to be bored.

      Expatiation, you suffer so long here in Indonesia why? We do not force you to come here.
      Most bule, same like Ross, when I meet, say they like Jakarta very much, except traffic.
      You talk like Oldmeadow, hate to Indonesia, mean to us..
