Look who is talking

August 12, 2007

Just picked this up …

As i remembered it, it was the man himself who is in the habit of threatening “national stability and harmony … of the country” when it suits him.

His last keris-waving antic and shouts of bathing the sharp instrument in some Malaysians’ blood were even televised on national tv during his party’s last general assembly.

Is this another one of those classic cases of Playing to the Gallery for political mileage? Or simply: Do as I say; don’t do as I do.

When will he and people of his ilk ever grow up and realize that this is the 21st century and education has helped the general populace overcome stupidity. Also, politics today is not about dramatics and threats but delivering on promises to the people responsibly – and it has absolutely nothing to do with drawing metal and blood, okay.

Umno Youth Wants Regulatory Control Of Bloggers

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 11 (Bernama) — Umno Youth Chief Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said today the time has come for regulatory control of bloggers who resort to unethical means to belittle the country’s leaders and mock national symbols and instruments.

He said the movement would not tolerate anyone, particularly bloggers, who threaten national stability, harmony and traditional values of the country.

“Umno Youth warns that freedom has its limits and we will not tolerate those who touch on the issues of national stability, harmony, cultural values and the personality of national leaders,” he said when opening the Subang Umno divisional delegates conference here.

Hishammuddin related how irresponsible bloggers had victimised him and his family by spreading slander and even published the picture of an indecently attired young woman whom they claimed to be his daughter.

On Malaysian mass communications student Wee Meng Chee, 24, in Taiwan who rapped to the Negaraku in a video clip, Hishammuddin, who is Education Minister, said the student had discarded the cultures and values of Malaysian society.
