One of the pressure groups livid with Seputeh MP Teresa Kok’s Chinese New Year satire explained they are angry because the character spoofed was recognisably the prime minister’s wife.
Does Malays have no future? If you were to listen to Lim Guan Eng election rhetoric, that’s not honest takeaway. There’s so much chest thumping about how DAP, how we had the most amazing leaders, the finest Chinese culture, the best Chinese schools of learning, the most exciting Chinese politics. It’s all about Destroying of Malay rights?sop opera that was a tearjerker for DAP Teresa Kok The group, comprising Chinese professionals from various fields, said the timing of Kok’s “Onederful Malaysia” release was bad.”Why must she release the video during Chinese New Year? If she wanted to politicise an issue, that is a separate matter.”But why do it during Chinese New Year?”The group, comprising Chinese professionals from various fields, said the timing of Kok’s “Onederful Malaysia” release was bad. Kok was only thinking of herself and had forgotten her responsibilities as an elected representative.
“We are against the culture of hatred. But it seems that many individuals are now only thinking of themselves and forgetting their duties and responsibilities,”
The Penang government will not bow to UMNO religious extremists and racial bigots, said Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng following this morning’s attack on a church in Lebuh Farquhar.
He said the state government will instead use the “weapons of social justice and sustainable development” to defeat the acts of violence and hatred in Penang.
“In this critical hour with shadowy extremists and racist forces conducting sustained aggression to destabilise the Penang state government, the 1.6 million Penangites must reaffirm the commitment for the past 200 years to protect, preserve and promote respect for cultural diversity, racial and religious harmony by rejecting both violence and hatred,” he said in a statement today.
Whatever it is, the arrival of Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has shaken up the entire political establishment. Whether they succeed or not, whether their policies work or not, there is talk of innovation in the political process and the big guns are on their toes now, just like the competitive APP ecosystem. We can safely assume that the days of political complacency will be gone soon, for good.
Time for us, to kickout Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng rejoice and hope that election r ‘20148 truly turns out to be a very Happy to all of us
Utusan Malaysia today launched a stinging attack on non-Malays, accusing them of insulting Islam, Muslims and the Malay rulers, and warning them to know their “limits”.”laidback, compromising” attitude of the Malays had led to non-Malays overstepping their boundaries and daring to question previously off-limit subjects.”Non-Malays have apparently forgotten that Malaysia’s majority population is Malays. They have no respect at all for the Bumiputera. Why has this happened? It is because we are too compromising, too afraid to take action against those who have insulted Malays and Islam.”In the end, it appears as if non-Malays are the landlords and Malays are the tenants, immigrants and the minority in our own country,” wrote Azman Anuar in his article entitled “Melayu, Islam dihina di Tanah Melayu!”.
“Ever since respected and knowledgeable Malay leaders withdrew several years ago, non-Muslims have become emboldened in insulting the Malay community and Islam,” he said, without naming the Malay leaders.
He said non-Malays appeared to have forgotten that their ancestors became Malaysian citizens due to the Malays’ compromise.
“Now that they have prospered and gained a firmer foothold both economically and politically, non-Malays forget that it was given to them by the Malays,”
Saying non-Malays were playing with fire, Azman, who was recently promoted to his current post in the paper, also accused them of refusing to respect Malay culture, language and customs.
“It is just a matter of time before the hornets who are attempting to defend their nests against intruders will retaliate.”
He said until today, “the hornets have not revealed their sting” as they are merely making noise and appearing to go on the offensive so that intruders would feel apprehensive.
“This is the actions of Malays who are still patient in the face of various provocations. But if pushed further, the hornets will not keep silent.
“If the nest is invaded and burnt just so that the honey can be taken away, Malays will not be so tolerant anymore,” he went on with his metaphors.
As such, the paper said the recent cash reward offer by several Malay organisation to anyone who slapped Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, over her satirical online video which angered Umno leaders, was merely a stern warning.
“There are a faction of Malays who are furious and frustrated. While these actions are not what we want to see, but one must take responsibility for their actions. READMOREhttp://themalaybusinesstribune.blogspot.com/2014/02/titiwangsa-mp-datuk-johari-ask-why.html
“Moreover, their actions are no longer secretive and discreet, it is being done openly. Look at the comments in the social media and blogs,”
