Walk Away

‪A very special person asked me, why do i still wanna be friends with people who publicly mocked me for political reasons. ‬‪She asked me why i didn’t fire back.‬

‪The answer is because they don’t know any better.

They forgot that way before they even mention the word “politics” in their conversations, I lived it. I know more. Seen more. Met more. Understood more.

They speak as if they’re morally better than me, and so their truth is the truth.

But my eyes saw more than they ever can see.

Most importantly, I forgive them & my decision for not confronting them is a decision based on the unity I plan to keep after the election.‬

‪I care about how they feel. I can take the heat. And so I walk away. ‬

  1. Sama Mas Pandji, saya pun hidup di lingkungan yang berbeda politik dengan saya. Keyakinan atau ideologi adalah perjuangan. Orang yang tidak tahu akan menganggap ini masalah perut, masalah uang atau dicap munafik. Tapi sesungguhnya adalah untuk NKRI tercinta.

  2. Pandji, pilkada tinggal besok. Lusa adalah waktunya anda membuktikan apa yg anda tulis di atas.

    Pada saat Jokowi tarung di Pilpres vs Prabowo, banyak org berkata persis seperti yg anda katakan. Tapi begitu hasilnya menunjukanpd kemenangan Jokowi, maka yg keluar dr mulut mereka adalah “Kecurangan Pilpres”, “Sedot data”, ” DPT palsu” dll, dll.

    Tidak berhenti sampai di situ, masa kelam (buat mereka) dimulai, di mana semua kebijakan Jokowi adalah bencana, kesalahan, tidak berpihak pd rakyat, dll, dll.

    Pandji, tulisan anda di atas adalah sebuah pledge, a commitment. Jika lusa hasil menunjukan kemenangan pd Ahok dan anda mengeluarkan satu saja, cukup satu, dr pernyataan-pernyataan khas losers di atas, maka anda sudah menelan ludah sendiri.

    Dan pernyataan anda di blog ini hanyala pure rubbish.

    Thanks

      1. Andi Rifat…jagoan saya Jokowi, dan dia Presiden sekarang. Menang atau kalah itu biasa yg penting ga perlu buat pernyataan negatif seprti yg terjadi ketika Jokowi menang.

        Kita bisa move on brauw…

        Banyak hal yg bisa langsung kita mintakan pembuktiannya dr Gubernur baru, krn tdk ada yg multi interpretasi di sini:

        1. Reklamasi berhenti (ya/tidak)

        2. Rumah DP 0% (ya/tidak)

        3. Tidak ada penggusuran (ya/tidak)

        4. FPI bisa diredam kekerasannya (ya/tidak)

        5. Tarif OK Trip terwujud (ya/tidak)

        6. dll, dll…silakan tambah sendiri

        Kita tunggu brauw…

  3. Bang Pandji, ada kontak relawan lagi g?, seperti waktu kampanye kemarin.
    karena saya ingin #jakartamajubersama and #walkaway

  4. Hi Om,

    I’m one of your fan. I still kept holding my full thoughts to be expressed because I owed a lot to you. I don’t think I’m morally better than you and I still kinda wished that you were paid by Anies instead of your own decision to fight for someone you believed in. Because when you fight for someone, you will be willing to overlook things; politics aside. Also since you know and lived ‘politics’, I think you fully understand that there will be collateral damage and I still can’t take it to myself that you’re willing to accept that collateral damage. I don’t know, maybe it’s time for me to walk away from you too. Please send my regards to your Mom. Cheers 🙂

  5. dear mas Pandji… after all things that you have fighting for… all that effort…. Do you think Indonesia political and social situation are getting better now?

    And you always defend yourself when we say “We’re losing you… You’ve changed…” .

    You said, We don’t understand you… We’re not on the same page.. I’ve know better… And now you say you’re eyes saw more than them…

    I think, The time when you thinking so high for yourself and doesn’t aknowledged others people view…. Thats the point were we losing you…

    And i hope all fight and effort that you do, really gonna make Indonesia going to a better place
    Regards
