We all know that the present situation where the Barisan Rakyat comprising of the DAP-PKR-PAS coalition has managed to topple the 50 years entrenched Barisan Nasional 14 parties coalition because of one major reason.
The BN fell from grace and out of the people’s hearts and minds because the Malaysian public finally have a choice.
The choice to choose between the BN Controlled mainstream media or from the news and information published by Malaysian Bloggers like myself and so many others here in the Blogosphere.
The BN fell because of the incessant manner by which their Propaganda Minister @ the former Minister of (Mis) Information amateurishly orchestrated a string of attacks against the DAP-PKR-PAS political parties through all the mainstream media channels and print publications day in day out relentlessly over the years.
I say that due to their unfair onslaught against the Opposition parties over all the available media platforms slowly and surely pissed off the general Malaysian public that seeds of discontent germinating over the years sprouted and burst into the way votes were cast on March the 8th, 2008.
The BN was finally brought down to it’s knees and had it’s major political leaders sent to the political doldrums from where the chances of sailing back into power is very remote if not impossible.
For 50 years, we were subjected to political anarchy by the BN. For 50 years we were told to abide by the BN laws whilst they got fat feeding on the wealth and the spoils from the billions and trillions squirreled away from this project and that project whilst the grassroots suffered living in squalor and primitive like conditions in the estates and rural areas, due to lack of government assistance or simply neglected by the BN except when the General Elections are in session?
The poor remained in desperate conditions and situations forced many to seek a better living in towns and cities only to be subjected to the law of the concrete jungles where other predators thrived by feeding on their ignorance.
In the villages, the JKKK @ Jawatankuasa Kemajuan dan Keselamatan Kampong acted like ‘little napoleons’ and they terrorized the poor people by their pick and choose manner of distributing whatever little scraps of government allocations of funds came their way.
Only those who are BN members or supporters got to feed on the paltry sums of allocations based upon the JKKK’s discretion or their own little crony system set up or hierarchy.
That is talking about the kampong areas. The situation is just the same or even worse in the city areas. The very same scenario is played out at the residential apartments through the Residents Associations and Rukun Tetangga committees.
We often see and hear of fights and skirmishes between opposing groups of residents who are not happy with the way, the little napoleons in such RA’s and RT’s discriminate and hold back the meager allocations that come their way and many residents chose to stay out of such committees just to avoid getting into such scrapes with the BN worshiping little bastards.
Forgive my French but that’s exactly how I feel and see them, so live with it!
It is due to all these unhappiness and dissatisfactions that have been brewing in the hearts and minds of the general Malaysian public that has been ignored by the BN buggers at the very top of the Mountain of Bullshit that they thrived on that led to the emergence of a new source of feedback and information that the BN couldn’t stop or muzzle?
Behold the emergence of us, the Malaysian Bloggers. Folks like me who don’t depend on the BN government to earn my living.
Bloggers of Malaysia who blog and publish the truth without fear or favor?
The way the 12th Malaysian GE came to be is without a doubt that we the Bloggers played a very big part in disseminating information to our readers.
Information that before this was reduced to only what the Chief Editors of newspapers and Broadcast Directors of the Malaysian TV Channels used to feed to the gullible public.
There used to be a time when the average citizen used to think that if it is printed in the newspapers then it must be true?
Well, such a situation is no more, thanks to the advent of the internet.
Even an old dictator like our former Malaysian Premier Mahathir acknowledges us as the ones who would eventually set Malaysia free and free Malaysians we did! Well, almost half of them. 🙂
Bloggers have freed the Malaysian public from having to depend only on what the ball carrying, apple polishing nincompoops of the mainstream media had been dishing out to the people?
The internet has freed Malaysian Bloggers like us to speak up and take to task those who are corrupt in the BN Government and at times we even have lambasted leaders of the Opposition for whatever screwup’s they did like in the recent past?
Even then, our utter disgust for the BN culminated in the way we blog and I dare say that we made an impact upon the way the recently concluded 12th Malaysian GE went?
Do you remember how we were insulted by just about every BN cabinet minister as this and that?
Well, where are they now? Most of them are now history and we have Zainuddin Maidin, the infamous Minister of Propaganda from the previous BN cabinet now asking the BN to forget their dreams of capturing Kelantan anymore for the way things have turned out in the elections?
Do we Bloggers rock or what?
One by one, they fell like tenpins smashed by the Bloggers revelations online as to their treacherous deeds and I am sure you remember MCA’s Chua Soi Lek’s extramarital ‘romp a pomp pomp’ caught on video and published online which saw him say goodbye to his Health Ministership and all BN government positions practically overnight.
The internet can and will continue to change the future of this country and we Bloggers will carry on with our mission to restore true democracy to our beloved land.
A major source of information that Mahaguru58 depended on is none other than Malaysiakini. Thank you guys especially for the free service during the elections. Syabas!
To the Barisan Rakyat State Governments of Penang, Kedah, Kelantan, Perak and Selangor, Mahaguru58 asks that you prove to the Malaysians that you can do better than the BN and will go on to topple the Abdullah Badawi regime in the next Malaysian General Elections?
So, all the best to the new DAP-PKR-PAS State Governments and wishing Malaysians to slowly but surely get free from the racial mindset as proven possible by the way the three Malaysian parties have successfully done so?
There are still some fanatics in PAS and the DAP who try to wreak havoc using the race and religious card but eventually we will be able to sort these vermin out and enlighten them, Insya Allah.
In the meantime, let’s watch the circus show taking place in Perlis and Terengganu. Cheers!
