Loony Left: Cognitive dissonance overload for guardianistas

Wealthy western force meddling in the sovereign affairs of a country with the world’s biggest Muslim population: how will that sit with the do-gooders in Notting Hill?

We're all guilty of confirmation bias at times; every one of us finds comfort in our own pre-conceived ideals. While alien to us in many other ways, guardianistas are no different in that respect.

So their heads must be feeling particularly sore today what with having to swallow a dose of cognitive dissonance down with their run-of-the-mill hangovers (it's the bubbles; they make for killer headaches). 

Decisions, decisions: Back anti-Western ‘imperialism’ or anti-capitalism? These are the kinds of tough decisions that guardianistas rarely have to contemplate, let alone make. Indeed, to you and I, these heresies may well appear to be vital and complimentary ingredients in the Great Lefty Broth.

But we’d be wrong. Satisfyingly, smugly wrong.

Allow me to elaborate: It has been reported that hundreds of people from Jakarta Islamic College Students Union (HMI) and ‘anti-colonial force’ Hizbullah Brigade (not to be confused with ferocious Israel-bashers from Lebanon) demonstrated today in front of Greenpeace Indonesia’s offices, wielding banners spelling out their rejection of the international NGO.

“Greenpeace is a foreign NGO that has become a nuisance; they repeatedly smear Indonesia’s name in the international world. Greenpeace is always exposing forests damage in Indonesia. Therefore, we demanded the government and Parliament (DPR) to hasten the ratification of Society Organization Statute Draft, so Greenpeace would get out of Indonesia,” said action coordinator, La Ode Ahmadi.

Ouch, take that Greenpeace! Dramatically outed as the imperialistic force so many see it to be.
