Political bullshits & shit-stirrers

Khairy Jamaluddin believes that the public has been unfair in targeting only Utusan Malaysia and accused DAP of being responsible for racial tensions.

“We should not only fault one party. I think all parties must respect one another, what we hear from every side are emotions from every race. I hope that there would not be any party whether it be Utusan or other papers that will stir up emotions,” he said.

To Khairy, whatever Utusan published can never be seditious. Whatever other races said have a tendency to be seditious. Jeff Ooi is seditious. Anthony Loke of DAP Youth statement condemning Dr Mohd Ridhuan Tee for calling Teoh Beng Hock's child as illegitimate is seditious and an act to attack Islam as proferred by PKR's Kulim MP Zulkifli Noordin.

Khairy added that Malaysians should not be quick to label people as racists. And Utusan wasn't racist? We all are racist but inciting racial hatred is not just being racist; it's hatred of one another.

PKR's Kulim MP Zulkifli Noordin lambasted Loke for 'attacking' Muslim scholar Dr Mohd Ridhuan Tee.

Anthony Loke had chided the Dr Ridhuan over his article in Utusan Malaysia concerning the 'illegitimate child' of deceased DAP political aide Teoh Beng Hock.

Loke's statement had appeared in a blog called 'SJSandteam', which has since been removed.

Zulkifli said the issue of getting his fiancee pregnant is different from the circumstances surrounding his death.

"Mohd Ridhuan is of Chinese descent, and is well aware of the community's traditions and culture," Zulkifli said.

Zulkifli called on Loke as well as the webmaster of the blog to apologise to Mohd Ridhuan and all Muslims.

Zulkifli urged the police to investigate the webmaster under the Sedition Act.



The Malaysian Insider



Well, Zulkifli & Khairy did not think Utusan's various articles instilling fear and apprehension of a particular race would incite racial hatred. They do not deemed it as seditious. It seems what Utusan can publish, had published, and would continue to publish, will never come under the purview of the sedition law while, any other publications or statements by individuals could be concocted, implied or transliterated as incite and thus seditious.

This nation is truly observing a nearness of a possible clash of the civilized society and we could be heading towards a class disorder.

I hope our Prime Minister Najib will do something affirmative to evade such a possibility. What we read at Utusan, Khairy's and Khir Toyo's blinkered-statements do not bode well for a peaceful-plural society. Clearly, there are strong underhands stirring a class struggle in an attempt to destabilise the Pakatan controlled States. To our disappointment the Pakatan Rakyat government of PKR,-DAP-PAS seems incapable of protecting the rakyat and fails to provide a sense of confidence to the rakyat who had voted them in.


According to Lim Kit Siang, who is the DAP advisor, Umno is behind what he said was a “bloody-minded” campaign to topple the Selangor PR state government.

“The Selangor Pakatan Rakyat government is facing a life-and-death threat with a high-powered Umno-BN conspiracy to topple it at all costs and restore Umno-BN rule in Selangor as in Perak six months ago.

“This is not an ordinary challenge but a no-holds-barred onslaught and take-no-prisoners assault mobilising all available means and resources, including the most unethical and illegal, whether at state or national level, whether government or outside like the mass media, to destroy the Selangor Pakatan Rakyat government and cause the break-up of Pakatan Rakyat,” he said in a statement today.



I am not sure what Lim Kit Siang said is true or false but the elements are observable and frightening. I hope Lim is wrong.


“I cannot imagine how our country will be if we (Barisan Nasional and Umno) are no longer in power after the next general election," Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said when opening Perdasama's 11th annual general meeting. Perdasama is an association for Malay businessmen.

Muhyiddin added that what was also more worrying now was that there were some non-Malay quarters who were openly questioning Malay rights and privileges.

And what was even more disappointing, he said, was that there was a small number of Malays who were acting as “thorn in the flesh”.

It is outright seditious and racist reporting by Utusan but hey, I forgot, Utusan belongs to BN-UMNO. It is their "voice" and because of this, nothing they say will be consider seditious nor racists. Instead, they will spin the blame on others being the instigator. This is a trend I notice since GE12. The fault is always on others, it is always "others" who started it. I have no clue as to where we will be heading but I know we are heading downwards instead of upwards!

Dr Mohd Ridhuan Tee has condemned the 'illegitimate child' of deceased DAP political aide Teoh Beng Hock.

Well, at least that 'illegitimate child' had not been dumped into the toilet bowl as what happened to many 'illegitimate children' born to unwed mothers of Ridhuan's faith

That fella talks shit. Has no compassion in his heart.

Gukita said...

When talks are political in nature, both sides have similiar culture of sedition, misrepresentation, malinformation and down right antagonism. Those who are so taken-in by rhetorics of both as to hurl abuses, march the streets in zombie-like manners ranting like idiots (not in this country anyway) and those who counter march with similar antics are intellectually unfit.

Illegitimacy is exactly that no matter how much care is endowed. If you dont mind illegitimacy, so be it and dont have to equate to child's disposal from any faith for that matter which is a crime. And this is not a monopoly of any faith, race or culture. Pointed sugggestion is tasteless.

MOST Malaysian moo_t? That's not what the poll found. Who has the right to represent "most"??.. nothing other than the results of past election.

Sorry Mave, coming once a while and spoiling the `cosy' atmosphere here..

The big picture is that there are mysterious hands stirring the s*&t via tools such as Utusan and stoking up sentiment.

Since the incumbent govt has another 3 1/2 yrs term to run, there are forces who want to heighten the tension in order that Emergency Rule is established.

Refer back to 1987 when Ops Lallang came about. Same things are brewing.

Maverick SM said...


I agree with you that both sides must look into the mirror and see the self-reflection.

Thank you for dropping by.

Purple Haze,

I think it is all part of political survival but the sad truth is that the citizens have to live with uncertainties and apprehension.


I think Gukita made a point - most Malaysians? That's an opinion.


I too am disturbed by Muhyiddin's expression.


You had a good point.


I somewhat am disturbed by the ideological approach of Utusan and various of the writers and am flabbergasted by Ridhuan's claim that he is Chinese; he is, that is the sad truth.

the chinese 'tee' must have wished to have zambry's color so that he can call himself a mamak to qualify as a bumibutar!
