From the manner by which the Barisan Nasional Coalition Government of Malaysia and their group of lackeys seem to be saying, the entire group of concerned Malaysians above must surely be the worst amongst us, the people of Malaysia who are unfairly asking for a fair and clean General Elections?
We who support the above must surely be ungrateful citizens who do not know how to appreciate the BN’s gift to the people recently and in all other past demonstrations and protests rallies, which are the costly tear gas and acid laced water cannon baths provided free of charge to those who dared oppose the squeaky clean administration of the blessed one with the halo above his freaking head and planet Earth’s latest super duper innovator of the already perfect and completely revealed in its entirety Islamic faith!
When I watched the Aljazeera’s video clips of the interview of Khairi Jamaludin, UMNO Youth’s Deputy Chief, Nazri Aziz, Minister of Parliament and Legal Affairs and Malik Imtiaz Sarwar, the ‘Human Rights’ advocate and one of Lina Joy’s advocate being questioned about the BERSIH rally’s implications and causes, I can’t help but notice the recalcitrant stand by Khairi and Nazri who keep echoing each other’s stand that the current BN system is perfect and not in need for any corrective measures!
I mean, should we even be bothered to listen to the two who are bloody infamous for their rude and uncouth manners of responding to Malaysians demands for a fair and clean government?
The barbaric responses by these two has been highlighted many a times before by the media especially the alternative ones, here online.
Remember Khairi’s antics in the Ijok and Machap by-elections?
Nazri’s rants and raves in Parliament where he rudely blasts away at the Malaysian Opposition?
I mean, it would be acceptable if he counters the Opposition leaders and MP’s in a manner befitting his position as the Minister in charge of Parliament and the Malaysian Law Minister but the way he spews forth derogatory terms at the elderly Opposition leaders and other MP’s makes one wonder how the hell did this bloke get elected in the first place?
Crass gutter behavior best suited for those who have no quality upbringing and usually associated with the characteristics of drunkards and drug addicts, I must say!
If these are the representatives of the BN and chosen to be the BN’s spokespersons, well start counting the days of the demise of the BN from the corridors of power in Putrajaya.
Who in his or her right mind would vote for these chaps?
Back to the subject matter.
Malaysians must learn not to swallow hook, line and sinker what the national media organizations are dishing out to us, day in , day out as we get nearer to the General Elections.
Do not underestimate the power of suggestive reporting and broadcasting which is being put to practice earnestly by the nation’s main media.
Unlike the years and times of before, we have with us today, the internet which is not under the will or control of the current regime until and unless they shutdown the Internet Service Providers operating from within the nation and block access to all the wireless internet relaying services and servers remains to be a wonderful source of information to all.
Malaysians must learn to look at both sides of the sources of information and the validity of any such news, reports and articles using their common sense and be able to differentiate between fact and fiction.
Remember, in today’s multimedia and superior information technological advancements , the truth can be distorted and republished as they please and lies be made out to look as the real thing!
Learn to look up and read from Malaysiakini and Malaysia Today, as well as the numerous blogs listed at Petaling Street.org, our nation’s foremost blogging portal where bloggers like me ping to notify readers like you of our latest postings.
Learn to pick and choose the ‘grain from the chaff’ and update yourself as to who’s telling the truth and who’s pulling a fast one on you.
Experience is the best teacher, they say and I am sure that by now, you surely know as to whether BERSIH are really the troublemakers that the BN are accusing them to be and whether the Agong did really issue that statement denying his consent to the people’s rallying to meet him or his representative last Saturday, the 10th of November, 2007?
As far as this blogger is concerned, I say that the truth will prevail no matter what. Let the liars lie for they will be judged before the Almighty Allah, come Judgment Day. Insya Allah.
As to BERSIH, I say this “ Sweep away the lies and the dirt choking the life out of our Malaysian government and judiciary.
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala support the righteous ones! Ameen.”
