While we’re about to celebrate New Year’s, Playboy Indonesia’s editor in chief is on trial for indecency, at the behest of the Islamist mob that rules that country. Yet, unlike here in America, the magazine contains NO nudity.
Indonesia has the largest Muslim population of any country in the world. And–Surprise! Surprise!–they are extremists.
If found guilty of indecency, Erwin Arnada could face 32 months in prison. The trial began three weeks ago, and the trial is closed to the public. The magazine is much toned down compared with Playboy in America. Yet, the screaming, protesting crowds outside the courtroom–yelling “Allah Hu Akbar” (our god is the greater/greatest, ie., greater than yours)–hold sway in Indonesia.
Still, porn videos and magazines containing nudity and material far more explicit than Playboy Indonesia, are sold throughout Indonesia–everywhere, all the time. If they really cared about decency, they’d go after those. Yet, testimony is ongoing about Arnada’s involvement in photo shoots and picture selection of non-nude women is ongoing. And it’s absurd.
True, you can’t judge a book by its cover, but look at Playboy Indonesia’s covers (below). Do they look like indecent magazines to you?
What this trial really is about is putting America (Playboy started and is headquartered here)–and its freedoms–on trial.
I’m no fan of Playboy or the decrepit lifestyle and mores it promotes. Ditto for the aging, eternally-bathrobed low-life sleazebag who occupies its CEO chair. And its shameless, whorish bimbettes who bare all for the camera and the world.
But in this case–Allah v. Playboy–I’m on Playboy’s side. It’s just like when our soldiers served in the First Gulf War and the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. They are not allowed to have Playboy Magazine, not even magazines like Maxim and Stuff (where the women are–barely–clothed).
Because we must, for some reason, show the “Religion of Peace” members–who are blowing our soldiers up–how much we respect them to our detriment. Just like we show them that here at gyms, like Fitness USA, which built a divider so Muslim women can dress like the women in Playboy Indonesia without men at the gym seeing them.
Meanwhile, their fellow co-religionists had no problem, just prior to 9/11, visiting “The Pink Pony” and patronizing prostitutes, seeing women in various states of extreme undress.
We’re supposed respect their religion far more than they respect it themselves, modesty far more than they respect it–all in the name of America kowtowing to the Religion of Hijackers. And all while they don’t have an iota of respect for our religions. (And our pandering to them makes them have even less.) It’s beyond ridiculous.
Yup, in the case of Allah vs. Playboy, I’m rooting for the Defendant.
Read my column, “Sex & The Islamic Terrorist,” to get more of the gist of Islamofascist hypocrisy on sex and modesty.
