Update – 12 April 2011.
It’s time for a laugh again, unless you happen to be one of the people caught up directly in this mob’s hypocrisy (aka Ariel aka Peter-Pan). The ever comedic PKS party threw up (pun intended) yet another contender for Bumbler of the month. A PKS lawmaker (oh please..) was photographed using his “tablet” (tax payer provided?) to view porn during a recent session of parliament. Caught in the classic naughty school boy mode of trying to hide the tablet under desk as he looked at the naughty bits, our horny old toad declared he had downloaded an email by accident. This statement of course had the rest of Indonesia in stitches of laughter.
Not to be outdone and never missing a moment to provide a laugh, the current Champion of Comedic Hypocrisy, our very own twittering, twisted Tifatul (and devotee of the US First Lady) was not going to be dethroned that easily. The triple T came with a statement reminiscent of the “Who’s on First” routine in it’s sheer silliness;
Tifatul, however, defended Arifinto, saying he could not be charged under the Internet law as the legislator had “unintentionally” downloaded the porn video.
“Those transmitting and distributing porn contents are subject to the law, those downloading are not,” Tifatul said in a statement.”
Of course, looking at the pictures of Arfinto’s tablet it would appear he has downloaded unintentionally into dozens of files.
Meanwhile Ariel serves five years gaol thanks to hypocrites, what a disgrace!
Oh and to those commentators whining Fitnah etc etc…Where are your foaming hordes demanding justice and gaol time? Where are the so called leaders crying out to protect the youth of the nation? Feel free to explain to us all the double standards as it is beyond The Drum’s ability to explain without laughing and crying at the same time.
The main problem about shrilling your pious, sanctimonious credentials to all that will listen (and those they don’t wish to hear) is you tend to build a rod for your own back…
The Drum really doesn’t have a lot of time to write this month but could hardly resist an update for old friends. It seems Anis Hatta and the PKS are once again the source of much smoke as reported in the Jakarta Post today.
A couple of really interesting quotes grabbed The Drums interest:
Yusuf, a PKS legislator in the House from 2004-2009, accused Anis of embezzling Rp 10 billion (US$1.15 million) in campaign funds, which he believed came from unnamed Middle East sources.
Anis said he would not sue Yusuf for defamation as it could prolong the “unhealthy debates.
“It’s an old song,” Anis said.
Now that seems mighty noble of someone whose reputation has taken a few hits of late not to sue but forgive us if we have trouble swallowing the reason why. We would really love to know whose these unnamed Middle East sources are. Not that it would be a surprise to find this dodgy mob has an unhealthy love affair with unnamed Middle Eastern sources, not like they have ever been picky about the company they keep.
Meanwhile, in yet more evidence of the unhealthy obsession with sex that exists within the PKS.
Last week, Yusuf filed a report with the House’s ethics council, alleging slander by PKS chairman Luthfi Hasan Ishaaq.
“Lutfi accused me of molesting somebody else’s wife,” Yusuf said.
What a bunch of amusing but scary, weird, little guys!
Oh speaking of old songs but apropose of nothing, the Drum’s personal favourite old song is old Eagles track “You can’t hide your ***** eyes”
