Umno-owned Utusan Malaysia has called on Malaysians not just to boycott next month’s Bersih rally, but also to gather against the movement that calls for free and fair elections.

The paper’s Mingguan Malaysia weekend edition also told Malaysians “who love peace and reject hypocrisy” to gather on the streets of Kuala Lumpur on July 9 “with banners of the opposition leader’s scandals” in reference to sodomy and sex video allegations against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Display also newspaper cuttings of the sodomy victims. They are the ones that should be defended if we support a clean culture. Awang believes the gathering will be a senjata makan tuan (backfiring weapon) for the opposition.

“This gathering is dirty,” it said in its Awang Selamat — the nom de plume of the newspaper’s editors — column today.

What has "Free and Fair Election" got to do with Sex Video and Sodomy trial?

Those who love peace must reject hypocrisy - YES!!! I am sure we know what is loving peace and who is hypocritical.

Senjata makan tuan, Awang, pasti makan tuan! This is getting dirty, oh ya! It is and will be with your type of hypocrisy.

We sure know the factual hypocrite.

Definition of HYPOCRITE
1: a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion
2: a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings
3: a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.
4: a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.

Nothing is more unjust, however common, than to charge with hypocrisy him that expresses zeal for those virtues which he neglects to practice; since he may be sincerely convinced of the advantages of conquering his passions, without having yet obtained the victory, as a man may be confident of the advantages of a voyage, or a journey, without having courage or industry to undertake it, and may honestly recommend to others, those attempts which he neglects himself.

-- Samuel Johnson

Hypocrisy has been called "the tribute that vice pays to virtue" and it will corrode the well-being of those people who continually make use of it.

As Boris Pasternak has Yurii say in Doctor Zhivago, "Your health is bound to be affected if, day after day, you say the opposite of what you feel, if you grovel before what you dislike... Our nervous system isn't just fiction, it's part of our physical body, and it can't be forever violated with impunity."

The over-attribution of hypocrisy, however, could lead to excessive tolerance of deceit and destructive behavior.

"Every individual needs revolution, inner division, overthrow of the existing order, and renewal, but not by forcing them upon his neighbors under the hypocritical cloak of love or the sense of social responsibility or any of the other beautiful euphemisms for unconscious urges to personal power" (Jung, 1966:5).

"It is under all circumstances an advantage to be in full possession of one's personality, otherwise the repressed elements will only crop up as a hindrance elsewhere, not just at some unimportant point, but at the very spot where we are most sensitive. If people can be educated to see the shadow-side of their nature clearly, it may be hoped that they will also learn to understand and love their fellow men better. A little less hypocrisy and a little more self-knowledge can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures" (Jung, 1966:par. 28).

This is what Todd Strandberg has to say: "A hypocrite is someone who "pretends to be better than he really is or to be pious, virtuous without really being so. A hypocrite is someone who says one thing and does the opposite. The people committing hypocritical acts normally try to use some form of rationalization to justify their actions. The grievous nature of some people's moral blunders proves that no one is immune from stumbling from a lofty perch." (SOURCE: )

Awang spend far too much time assessing the sins of other people. The fact that people are unable to live perfect lives is not really breaking news.
