    Spare A Thought For The Plight of Derek Chauvin! 

    The BBC began its report yesterday morning on the start of the trial of Derek Chauvin with ridiculous scenes of buffoons capering about in a ‘street-dance’ and then interviewing one of the less inarticulate dancers – no obvious reason why.


    It might seem boringly old-fashioned but is anyone interested in seeing how the trial proceeds, and ends?

    Or are we all just expected to assume that the jurors in Minnesota will be intimidated by the hue and cry among BLM blood-thirsties, that they’ll knuckle under and convict the cop?



    Suppose, once all the arguments and evidence are presented, that the accused is found…

    Not Guilty?

    What then?

    …attorneys for all four former officers cited numerous threats they and their clients had received in recent months. Afterward, protesters confronted three of the former officers…and their attorneys outside the courthouse, some chanting “Murderer!” at the officers while pursuing them for several blocks as they walked to their cars….


    Does anyone seriously imagine that the savage ruffians who ran amok last year will accept any outcome that doesn’t meet their approval?

    I fear Mr. Chauvin will, for the rest of his life, have to look over his shoulder everywhere he goes.

    That is as absolutely predictable as that night will fall here in Jakarta by 6pm today.

    Black KNIVES Matter?

    …and there will be countless hate-fueled BLM bigots determined to earn kudos from their fellow-savages by hunting down any cop allegedly involved…


    Deceased criminal Floyd


    …in the death of the notorious career-criminal named George Floyd.

    Just something to think about.

    Spare A Thought For A Man On Trial For His Patriotism! 

     “I don’t know if this is the first time in Europe that a former minister is facing prosecution not for economic crimes, but for government action”.

    That’s what Matteo Salvini said last week as he was put on trial for doing his job as Interior Minister, for defending his country against illegal alien incursions.


    Salvini / Meloni / Tajani
    Solidarity! Giorgia Meloni and Antonio Taiani stand beside Matteo

    I won’t go into the details, which I’ve mentioned previously…

    There Are At Least 149 Slimy Pro-Crimmigrant Slugs In Rome! 

    …but I do want to keep an eye on this case, which got off to a promising start when the court ruled that a batch of Conte’s Curs, including the Italian PM and several of his deplorable ministers, would be required to attend and testify.

    They were in government with Matteo Salvini when he did his best to safeguard Italy, so questions may be asked about collective responsibility.

    It’s great to see his allies like Giorgia showing up to show solidarity.

    There’s not a lot we can do from far away, but if you are on Facebook, you could LIKE his page, which is well worth perusing…



    Assaulting a 72-year-old man from behind, kicking him with unheard of violence, crushing his face with a foot.
    For a mobile phone and a few euros….
    A disgusting crime, committed by a convicted “serial robber,” but above all wicked, inhuman, monstrous.
    Thanks to law enforcement this criminal is in jail, I hope he pays and gets expelled from our country: GO!

    A Man Called Ahok – Film Bagus, Tetapi… – 

    I got off my idle butt this week and went to the movies. With so many films available on cable tv, and dvds, I don’t go to cinemas nearly as often as once I did.

    But this was different.


    Image result for a man called ahok

    If you want a traditional film review, use the above JP link.

    I went to watch today because I admire the subject of the film tremendously, a very good, very decent, very human and VERY unjustly treated man.

    Most people here know that Ahok was the best City Governor that Jakarta has had in many, many years.

    Some people hated him, ignorant Islamist street scum…

    Jakarta Jew-Haters Boo Chinese Christian Candidate 

    …and high-powered extremist ‘scholars’ wanted desperately to see him brought down…

    Jokowi picks Ma’ruf Amin, key expert witness on Ahok’s blasphemy trial


    …one of whom is very likely going to be Indonesia’s next Vice-President, chosen for that position by President Jokowi, who paradoxically had once been very happy to have Ahok as his running mate when Jokowi was running as a gubernatorial candidate in Jakarta.

    Ahok ended up in prison under the benighted ‘blasphemy’ law, an outcome which did dreadful damage to Indonesia’s reputation as a pluralist democracy…

    Slouching Towards Shariah, Indonesia Jails Ahok

    Despite the sickening sight of Islamist fanatics howling for his blood, to the bitter end, it has to be said that Ahok held the loyalty of MANY decent Muslims.

    Their courage can be measured by the intimidation they withstood, some of which was mentioned in a Jakarta Post report….

    During the gubernatorial campaign, some mosques called on Muslims not to hold funeral prayers for deceased Muslims found to have supported Anies’ contender, Basuki Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama, who is Christian of Chinese ethnicity.   http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/11/22/city-to-hand-out-rp-1-6t-to-mass-organizations-religious-institutions.html


    So while it was a fascinating, well-made film, it was a shame it did not cover the Jakarta chapter of his life, except brief allusions thereto at the very start and very end.

    I suppose an honest account of the events and their denouement might risk the movie-makers facing similar benighted ‘blasphemy’ charges, if they reported on the harmless quip which ignited bigot fury.

    My other criticism involves the English translation of the dialogues, which appeared throughout the movie.

    Surely it would not have cost much to get it done properly.

    Heck, I would have done the job for free, which might have improved the fluency and grammatical quality.

      Great, Ross.
      Twice in a week,you are back to telling us what we want to hear from you, about Indonesia today.
      Even if I am no longer in Jakarta, I still take a keen interest and agree with all you say about the dark path i
      Indonesia is going down

      I watched it too!
      Thank you so much for going to watch this film and now writing about it.
      Ahok is a hero.

      I will go watch it now. We wish Ahok was still our governor.
      He is the best


      • Santi 16:19 on November 14, 2018 Permalink | Reply

        I watched it, a very interesting film but same like you it is I think a very great pity we do not see the bad people with the signs saying Burn Ahok and we do not see President Jokowi on the platform with Ahok-haters like Rizeq.
        That was a very bad day I will never forget, again same like you.


    • JazPen 16:09 on November 13, 2018 Permalink | Reply

      Me and a lot of people I work with here are now setting off to see this film.
      All Ahok fans together!
      If you say it is worth watching, they are all happy to accept your recommend.


    • Euis 17:07 on November 13, 2018 Permalink | Reply

      We all admire Ahok.
      He was the best governor but he was honest so they hated him.
      It was all about hate.


    • Wayan 17:43 on November 13, 2018 Permalink | Reply

      I do not live in Jakarta but I will try to see this film because even in Bali it is true that most people think Ahok is a good guy.
      Freedoms of religion matter to Balinese because most of us are minority religions.
      The people who hate him also hate freedom of religion and say they want to kill anyone who wants to leave their religion.
      They are enemies of Pancasila not welcome on our island.
      Ahok will be welcome any time when ever he is free to come here.


      • Connie Milson 19:29 on November 13, 2018 Permalink | Reply

        Ahok should of course be freed at once and should never be in prison anyway.
        Nothing he ever said or did should have been cause for arrest or trial or prison, but he is not the only one imprisoned in Indonesia for what should never be a crime in any country that says it is a democracy.
        There is a petition circulating demanding the release of another ‘blasphemy’ victim held in an Indonesian prison.
        I will send it to you tomorrow.

      I was able to understand the English they added onto the screen but even I myself can see it was not correct English all the time.
      You did a good job teaching me ten years ago, Pak Guru!
      PS yes, very good film.

      Ahok should be free.


    • Puji 07:40 on November 14, 2018 Permalink | Reply

      The way even funerals used against the people to make them turn against Ahok was wrong and very cruel.
      His enemies belong to other cultures and not Indonesia.
      More like Somalia gang warriors I think.

      We saw Ahok film and it make our heart sick at how he is a prisoner for no reason.

    Slovene Pro-Crimmigrant PM Faces Patriot Backlash! 

    • —–
    • Very unfortunate, that Slovenia has a liberal in power, but liberal or not, in this matter he doesn’t have a leg to stand on, since the Syrian’s asylum claim was rejected this summer by the Slovenian courts,

    • Why?

    • Because, like so many others, he failed to follow the rules, that they have to claim ‘asylum’ in the first EU country they reach, in his case Croatia.

      Not only is the damned liberal PM flaunting his indifference to the law…

    • ======

    • =====
    • ….but two arrogant leftist MPs, Jan Škoberne and Mihe Kordiš, behaved even more badly, deliberately obstructing law enforcement by taking the crimmigrant out of the legislature building to prevent the police from taking him away.

    • ============
    • ========
    • =========
    • That subversive duo should be arrested, charged, tried and if convicted, put in jail.

    • =======
    • More interesting, however, is the move by the opposition to have Cerar impeached.

    • Even more interesting is the way the Guardian tries to slur the opposition leader, the Slovenian Democratic Party’s Janez Janša, who, we are gratuitously warned, was sentenced to two years in prison on corruption charges in 2013…

    Hire More Typists, Pak? Jakarta ‘Justice’ Delayed! 

    Prosecutors postponed the reading of the sentence demand against Jakarta Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama until April 20, a day after the runoff, saying they have not yet finished typing the demand.


    No point railing about this again.

    We did so last week.

    Jakarta’s Bizarre ‘Blasphemy’ Trial – Frozen Till AFTER Votes Counted? 

    “We’ve tried our best but one week is not enough for us to make the demand. We apologize that we can’t read out the sentence demand today,” prosecutor Ali Mukartono said during a hearing Tuesday. 

    So is it a shortage of typists, really and truly, that prevents them getting on with this outlandish trial?

    The presiding judge Dwiarso Budi Santiarto then offered the prosecutors to read their demand on April 17.

    Ignore the Jakarta Post’s lousy grammar. It’s the judge’s perfectly reasonable request that matters.

    Ali responded to the judges’ suggestion by asking them to consider the Jakarta Police chief’s letter to the North Jakarta district court dated April 4 that suggested that the court postpone the hearing until the Jakarta gubernatorial election on April 19 due to security reasons. 


    If it’s all just playing politics, why drag in their inability to collect enough competent typists?

    The so-called ‘security’ reasons are in fact a concern that more Islamist mob disorder might erupt. And that is entirely possible.

    But the response should surely not be to juggle the trial time-table.

    Better by far to equip the police with plentiful and effective weaponry…

    Jakarta’s Bizarre ‘Blasphemy’ Trial – Frozen Till AFTER Votes Counted? 

    So there’s been a call from the police for the North Jakarta
    District Court suggesting them to postpone the religious blasphemy trial involving Ahok?

    Sounds like Tempo’s standard of English grammar is declining towards Jakarta Post level.

    Even my former teenage students would have known to write ‘suggesting that they postpone…’


    But skip it.

    Why are the police taking this extraordinary step?

    Well, Metro Jaya Police Sr. Comr. Raden Prabowo Argo Yuwono has told Tempo why.

    Argo explained that the letter was issued in an effort to maintain security and order in Jakarta, and to allow preparation for the upcoming gubernatorial election to run smoothly.

    “Considering that the trial will be held close to the voting day, there are possibilities of mass mobilization. Therefore, [the letter] was issued to minimize such possibilities…”

    Police Urge Court to Postpone Ahok Trial



    What’s surely most important is that Ahok gets a fair trial – to the extent that anyone going on trial for an offence as absurd as ‘blasphemy’ can get a fair trial…



     – and that he knows what fate awaits him ASAP…as soon as possible!

    If the court rules that he’s innocent, then that will obviously impact on his electoral prospects.

    Sectarian savages will never vote for him, but thanks be, they are a minority…

    Jakarta Mosque – Yellow-Bellies Bash, Spit On, Journos! 

    ….but a lot of everyday people, confused by ignoramus propaganda, will be much more likely to come out and cast their ballots for him if he’s acquitted.  .

    If, and any system that can put a man on trial for ‘blasphemy’ can just as easily find him guilty, IF Ahok is found guilty, it will harm his chances.

    No matter the logic or morality of the case, a guilty verdict would hurt him. Rational people may ignore such mediaeval stuff, but a lot of Jakartans have little education and might think that a conviction for ‘blasphemy’ in the 21st century actually means something to our good Governor’s discredit.

    But EITHER way, surely the citizens of Jakarta – and Ahok himself – deserve to know the judicial score, BEFORE they vote?

    If there are indeed what Pak Argo calls possibilities of mass mobilization – and I dare say he’s right – then the police officers on duty are surely entitled to use every means at their disposal…

      I agree with you, Ross, and the court does too, or so says the Jakarta Post today

      Prosecutors are expected to make their sentence demand next Tuesday and Ahok is scheduled to read out his defense statement on April 17, just two days before voting in the runoff to Jakarta’s gubernatorial election.

      Even so, Ahok will still be kept waiting till after the election which I hope he wins.
      If he doesn’t, I foresee Jakarta turning into a drab sharia city and I will be moving after even more years here than you.

    Good Muslims Speak Up For Threatened Christian Governor 

    Wearing the iconic blue and red plaid shirts, the protesters carried signs that read, “We are Muslims who forgive Ahok” and “Release Ahok”.

    This is good news.

    I do try to get across the truth about Indonesia, which is seen by many people overseas as a hot-bed of extremists.

    Not so.

    Most Muslims here, and I know and count as friends a fair number of them, have no interest in backward bigotry. The opinion polls here show that, while Ahok has lost ground in next year’s gubernatorial election campaign…




    …he has millions of Muslim voters still ready to support him.

    Indeed, a survey published last week –


     – has him ahead again.


    “We were trying to display support for Ahok and send a message to the judges and other people that there are Muslims who support tolerance and a fair trial,” Yayong Waryono of the Bara-Badja (Volunteer Front for Basuki and Djarot) 

    (Basuki is Ahok’s formal name, Djarot is his running-mate)

    Yayong said they decided to stage a rally because they were concerned with the hundreds of anti-Ahok protestors “trying to put pressure on the panel of judges”.

    We really need to ponder that ‘pressure’ too, after President Jokowi himself chose to appear on the same platform as Indonesia’s chief IslamoNazi, Habib Rizieq…

    • jokowi


    So Has Indonesia Come To This? Paradise Lost? 

    …before a mob bent on exacting punishment for a ‘crime’ that in most of your countries would not be considered a crime at all.

    Prosecutors claimed that despite the blasphemy allegation that stirred public controversy, it was the crime that brought Ahok to court, not the public pressure.  http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/12/21/ahok-supporters-finding-new-strength.html

    ‘Public pressure?’ Is that even the right phrase to apply to the fulminations of hate-groups whose leaders have said Ahok should be killed.  



    “We encourage the government to process the death penalty for Ahok as soon as possible,” said Rizieq.  http://www.suara.com/news/2016/10/14/134313/

    No wonder the police have repeatedly voiced concerns over possible security issues during the trial hearings and asked the Supreme Court to consider relocating the trial… 

    If you have been reading this blog for a while, you will be aware of what can happen if savages don’t like the outcome of a trial of this sort.
