And plotted and planned to take it.
“Use all necessary force to bring them to submission!”
And the dispossessed cried for mercy.
Yet, no one heard.
“ reformasi” They yelled.
And the tyrants cried “ISA THEM KUGAN THEM!”
“Starve and beseige them!”
“Use all necessary force to bring them to submission!”
And to the world the tyrants raged: “Security!”
And the sycophants cried in defense of the tyrants.
Then Conscience spoke and asked.
“Who will secure the starved, beseiged and dispossessed?”
Their newspaper played with fire based on unsubstantiated blog posts, and now the owners are blaming others for their own indiscretion.’
‘Christian-state row a trap for Umno’Penang Umno Youth chief Shaik Hussein Mydin says, “It is easy to link the matter with Umno but we can also accuse the DAP. Jelutong MP Jeff Ooi was there at the closed-door meeting, not us. How did the information get out?” the culprit becomes the victim. Umno walked into a trap sprung by the DAP and ended up as dead meat. That makes the home minister… well, he’s even more stupid than I thought. Hey, who is the victim here – PM Najib Razak, Islam, Malays, the Christian church, Lim Guan Eng, DAP or Umno?I have a simpler explanation to help Shaik Hussein out of his predicament to save his brains from overheating. Gremlins in Umno have been throwing sand into the wind at their opponents and the sand is blown right back into their faces.
The more Umno is trying to rationalise their blunder, the more Malaysians will be pissed. Their newspaper played with fire based on unsubstantiated blog posts, and now the owners are finding all means to blame others for their own indiscretion. An apology would be better received.: “The trap, he (Sheikh Hussein) claimed, was hatched by certain quarters who stand to benefit from the controversy, to run down his party (Umno)’s image.”
Really? Blame it on Utusan Malaysia and pro-Umno bloggers. Umno minister Hishammuddin Hussein should also be blamed because he supported the Utusan report without first finding out if it was true. Are you guys shooting at each other feet or what?
This is the most ridiculous conspiracy theory put forward ever. So now Utusan is helping DAP trap Umno – wow, that is truly a new one. Also it is good to see that Umno for once is behaving more like a good opposition. However, their current elected reps are acting more like clowns. Shaik Hussein, if your conspiracy theory is true, that only leaves us with two possible conclusions.
1) Umno is run by a bunch of idiots as the left hand obviously doesn’t know what the right hand is doing, and both are in it for showmanship. That spells danger for those who still think Umno can produce quality leaders to run the country. If they can’t get the party in order, how are they going to run the country?
2) Umno is outdated and can’t keep up with the time. This is clear case of failure to multitask hence everyone running round doing their own things while the cumbersome and slow leadership can only afford to address one issue at a time. Not only is it not proactive, it is reactive and faced with problems, it just froze and act defensive, like a roadkill before being run over by a truck.
This is the classic case of a thief who tries to scale and enter a victim’s house with ropes. When he entangles himself with his own ropes in trying to enter the house, he accuses the house owner of trying to hang him.
How ingenuous can these fools be in trying to extricate themselves. The rakyat will give you more ropes to hang yourselves.
Now we get another spin or is it damage control? Even the home minister has mellowed in his statement; and now wants to find out why Utusan wrote the article. Had it been Sin Chew Daily, the top management would be called up and the editor sacked and the newspaper threatened with suspension of its publishing licence.
Remember the Sin Chew reporter who was locked up under ISA under the absurd excuse “to protect her”? Now, the home minister should also try to protect the two bloggers and Utusan editor.As long as Gerakan, MCA and MIC are beholden to Umno, there is no way BN is going to retake Penang. With all the such low mentality of the leaders who can’t see beyond race and religion, it will take a miracle for Penangites to switch from DAP to BN. Right now, the BN leaders can carry on with their wishful thinking. Trap? This is the most ridiculous excuse of being completely dumb. It was Utusan that wrote the news. Not other newspapers. Utusan has been here long enough to understand the ethics of journalism if they are serious about being a respectable newspaper company.Now Utusan has reduced itself to a mere Umno daily newsletter. Umno dares not to do anything to Utusan, or else falling newspaper sales means falling income for the party.
So who ‘forced’ Utusan to publish it without due journalistic verification? Did DAP or the churches force Utusan? Did they force Pembela and Perkasa to make the stupid protests? Did they force Hishammuddin to make his stupid statements?Give me a break – just call a spade a spade. Umno needed to distract the populace from the price increase of sugar, petrol and is playing with fire trying to create bogeymen. Two weeks ago it was the Chinese (also an Utusan editorial) and now Christians.Remember Najib’s response over the editorial, “It’s the editor’s personal opinion.” Garbage. Umno is full of it and it is turning Malaysia into a landfill. Utusan created a big fuss out of unsubstantiated accusations to create religious fires. Keep trying – from cow-head stomping, pig’s heads thrown into mosque, church and surau burning to the latest, the Christian-state conspiracy.We won’t bother as the failure of the Umno-led government has caused prices of essentials such as food and petrol skyrocketing. Malaysians are too busy to make ends meet to react to such nonsensical antics of Umno. Was Shaik Hussein trying to say that Umno is so dumb that it fell into its ‘own’ trap? Or rather a trap set up by bloggers Big Dog and Marahku?
