Naruto Supports Islamist Party

naruto-pkr.jpg

Clone abusing ninja Naruto has been spotted lending his support to Indonesia’s Prosperous Justice Party, or Partai Keadilan Sejahtera, an Islamist party supporting such backwards medievalist policies as bans on pornography, in what we can only consider as an episode which could damage his chances of becoming Hokage.

The party in question supports legislation such as the laughably titled “Bill Against Pornography and Pornoaction“, a bill which sought to ban such insidious evils as public kissing, bikinis and navel exposure (“pornoaction”), and of course pornography. The party itself claims it is against the imposition of Sharia codes, although it is doubtful anyone believes them.

In fact, a vague but complete ban on pornography was passed in 2008, with downloading lewd materials in Indonesia now carrying a possible 4 year sentence; a “sexually suggestive performance” can attract a 12-year sentence. Naturally, freedom loving Islamists were behind this.

It is not clear whether the image in question is an authorised use of Naruto’s likeness; it seems overwhelmingly unlikely to be the case. It also seems unlikely that Naruto presents a good match with the party’s unstated objectives of rendering the masses obedient slaves of God.

Thanks to Linkinstreet on the forums for exposing this.

To my knowledge no Japanese politician has ever actually secured a high profile endorsement from an actual manga or anime; even Rozen Aso is circumspect in this area…

    @Mr. Kelly from VGI : it's the same thing as when the japanese laughed at their own government when Strike Witches nominated as recommended anime for family. So, no serious offense, nobody should be harmed. Let us all just smile at this world's craziness :)

    oh yeah, IMHO Clinton was here because Obama spends his (awful) childhood here in Indonesia and because Indonesia is no.1 Islamic country in term of population.

    Just think of me as babbling idiot that passing by

    oh, them religious folk in Indo who indulge in these kinds of idiocy are either radical to the point of extreme, or technically Indonesian hill-billies.
    and most of em who do politics are prolly in it for fame, power, and money anyway. And they can't use computers, like others mentioned above, they believe computer animations are for kids, and act as such, while never bothering to learn whether it might be otherwise.

    I heard Bali's made a "special zone" of sorts, by the way.

    Buat temen2 Indo, jangan jelek2in bangsa sendiri dong. Yang patut disalahkan ya calegnya, kok malah bangsa kita dijelekkan juga sih, kan oknum, kyk bangsa lain ga pernah bikin salah aja. Jangan pake omong jorok juga ah, ga pantes bukan budaya kita itu.

    As an Indonesian, sorry for all the Naruto fans that had been offended. But this is purely an individual fault, dont take all Indonesian are silly. We are the 4th biggest nation in the world, and now has the 3rd biggest economic growth in Asia., thats why Clinton's here in Jakarta yesterday.

    Yah, kalo dibaca UU anti pornographi, yg baca juga pasti pusing. Ini yg bikin UU nya kepikiran gak dampaknya buat kehidupan orang sehari2? Gak usah dilindungi deh, Indo memang kayak gini.

    And wtf do the stats have anything to do with us not being silly? We LOOK silly when the MPs passed the ridicilous backward minded Anti pornographic law! Enough with turning this country into a religious state!

    Whoa, it's like every Indonesian and his/her grandmother are active here right now o_O

    So I did a little research on that pornography law, it seems all those "pornoaction" parts were scheduled to be removed from the bill according to all the news articles I was able to find - way back in 2006. It seems non-Indonesian press coverage stopped soon thereafter. Apparently the law passed unchanged though. So what happens when tourists visit Indonesia to spend their vacation there? No western woman would abandon sunbathing in a bikini at the beach, would totally kill the purpose of the vacation obviously. I recall the provincial governor of Bali has even made a threat to declare independence from Indonesia should the bill pass? Also, what became of all the various folklore traditions, like the bamboo dance? There MUST have been some kind of uproar by the still quite numerous non-muslims right? Please enlighten me.

    Well as an Indonesian. I can only lol`ed it. Hehehehe. Pornoaction, like u said our country is very great at creating something pretty useless. The law that restrict us to see porn can be overcome just like this.
    What? I`m not into porn. This is hentai, it is an art. How can you say a mere piece of paper and a 2d char as a porn? Hehehehehe

    Just a warning: In Indonesia copyright is nothing, here we welcomes it as one of Indonesian`s tradition. Well, u know if u have come to our place.

    Wow,... just wow,... atleast it's not that damn ol' "New Order Regime" (F U Soeharto, even when you're dead) ex-army generals parties like Gerindra or Hanura.

    Ahhh, isn't great to live in a relatively manageable chaos? (Yg bener aje :D)

    Anyways,... it's always nice to see that the parties are doing their research on their current reasonably oblivious and moderately gullible next generation of voters.

    well, i guess this is time for some crowd control.

    look guys, the situation is like this. the virus of democracy has been spreading like cancer in Indonesia, resulting in EXTREMELY HIGH spending for political ads. just like Hillary Clinton said, Indonesians are very cool eh, emulating the Americans to the core and isn't afraid of destroying their own native values (including Islam).

    so, it's about time for elections now. everyone want a seat for their own arse in the parliament (or whatever it's called). they dump their money on the advertising guys, and they want to see their face everywhere public. sometimes they dont even bother checking the quality of the ads personally, which results in (amongst other) someone from largely-Islamic party "use" something like Naruto (which goes against the Islamic law A LOT, i can go on and on about this) for his campaign (see the above pic).

    PKS probably can't be blamed. these days, the politicians are out of control in the name of democracy, and even a party can't strictly guide each one of their candidates about what are acceptable, and what are not. this has resulted in a lot of scandals, but for my end this has caused A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF VISUAL EXCRETES IN PUBLIC SPACE. the one you saw above is just one of them-- and believe it or not, it's a lot less bizarre compared to others. all in the name of democracy. some of them are OUTRIGHT LIES. at least this man doesn't say "Naruto support Islam".

    @Artefact: i gotta tell you this, buddy: learn from the last Korean Hetalia drama, if you know what's good for you.

    P.S. in b4 "this poster is fundamentalist"-- it's true, i have a lot of fundamentalism. the guys who blabber about democracy everywhere are harder to punish for their governmental mishaps, and my money is on PKS.

    P.S.2 can't believe i'm preaching to people about democracy and Islam in this depravity-rich place.

    I just can't stop asking, why PKS agree with government policy to raise the oil price? they said PKS for people, huh???

    And maybe a good note for Sankaku (Artefact) to selective write the headline, and about APP case which is irrelevant with this case.

    the legitimacy of using such image for endorsement can be taken action depending on the country's law of the "made in china effect". i dont get why they want to ban porn when all male muslims are perverted themselves its an actual fact and such bigotry which makes it even more pointless.

    As a normal people, I'll think fresh about this.

    This is ANYWAY just a political action. The fact, Naruto almost banned in Indonesia after one children dead because of imitating Naruto (check ANN/KAORI).

    Anyway, because this is a REALLY big news, I think I'll forward it to my news site...

    (And as other party, PKS is suck... whether...)

    ah, it already happened with WWF Smackdown.
    as I recall it, a kid imitating smackdown has unintentionally killed his playmate and the WWF Smackdown shows were soon banned.

    It was, at that time, the country's most watched foreign show.

    And I was a fan myself.

    mass media and public control for QUALITY of it is a major issue in Indonesia, with the emergence of media-aware intellectual class (Indonesians here are amongst this class).

    the latest issue is the movement to do something about the "sinetron" (soap opera-- inspired by Latin America "telenovela"), due to its extremely low QUALITY. think about the worst thing you can find in any female-aimed drama, and multiply it 9000times: you've got a sinetron. this movement is supported by Islamic and non-Islamic groups alike, i.e. the Kompas[*1] newspapers.

    me? i don't care. all that i watch are anime that i donlod myself in secrecy. didn't i say "public control"? (privacy is also a major debacle, here.)

    hahaha... many party is in a bad condition in Indonesia, lack of people trust, they don't know how to make some attarction for people to vote for them, that's why they choose Naruto as one of high rated anime aired in Indonesia. Maybe if Haruhi aired here, they will use Haruhi also.

    but then again, they know nothing about Naruto or Anime, all they know is many kids loves Naruto. But as we know, no kids are allowed to participate for vote.

    they do stupid things to attract stupid people.

    May I remind you that in Indonesia Naruto is currently watched by Narutards of age 7 - 32 ? And of those, 17 - 32 are eligible to vote?

    The idea isn't all that bad, but I must say, appearing in Sankaku and being red all over the world isn't something I was expecting.

    I saw this at the forums, and I never expected it to hit front page!

    I just wished that Malaysia's politicians had as much of an open mind as PKS. We got Parti Keadilan Rakyat (People's Fair/Justice Party) here, lead by Anwar Ibrahim. The least he could do is pull off this stunt as well, just to gain supporters. And judging by the sheer number of rebellious teens and onslaught of the internet and anime-loving nation that would be eligible for voting in 2012, they might just win it.

    Oh, and if you find any news on sodomy, those are just political lies to keep attention away from other pressing matters.
