SEPT 15, Kelana Jaya: The Beautiful Face of Malaysia

16 09 2008

This is the second Merdeka. I will always regret that I was overseas and could not be at Kelana Jaya stadium last night.

I am a cold, cynical character these days, but I nearly wept when I saw these photos of the rally last night. Kudos to TV Smith, who took this wonderful, wonderful series of photos. One day, these photos will become as iconic as the photo of Tunku Abdul Rahman in 1957.

We are so accustomed to seeing the ugly face of Malaysia that we have almost forgotten what the beautiful face looks like.

These are photos of hope, of faith, of love, of pride.

This… is what the beautiful face of Malaysia looks like.

Kelana Jaya Stadium . Monday 15th September 2008 . 8:00 pm.

From Haris Ibrahim of the People’s Parliament:

“…People, do not play into the hands of the authorities.

Let’s not knee-jerk.

If we are going to do any vigils or peaceful demonstrations, let these be planned.

Will keep you posted on these, if any.

What I can tell you is that Pakatan Rakyat is holding a Hari Malaysia celebration on 15th September, 2008 at the Kelana Jaya stadium to commemorate 45 years of the formation of Malaysia, since 1963. The even starts at 8pm.

We are going to utilise that event to show solidarity with RPK.

I will try to get more details of that event and update all of you when I can.

Meanwhile, please start an sms campaign. Please send out the sms below. Can someone do translations in BM, Tamil and Mandarin, please? Send it in and I will put it up.

‘RPK detained under ISA. Pls come to Kelana Jaya Stadium 8pm 15th September, 2008 to show solidarity for RPK’.

Raja Petra Kamarudin has just been arrested under the ISA. According to the Malaysiakini report, the police sent 10 men to his house at 1.10 pm to arrest him.

So, the racist thug Ahmad Ismail gets away with nothing but a light slap on the wrist, while Raja Petra who regularly exposes the UMNO-BN regime’s crimes is arrested under the ISA — because they do not want him in open court where his testimony could bring down so many of the ruling elite.

We all knew how weak and foolish Badawi was, but even I didn’t expect him to be so stupid as to arrest Raja Petra under the ISA.

Or is Badawi so weak now that he cannot even control his own Home Minister?

It does not matter.

If anyone still had any doubts about whether Pakatan Rakyat should take over the Federal Government, here is your answer now.


Post-Permatang Pauh: Thoughts for Merdeka 51

28 08 2008

Reeling from the humiliating defeat in Permatang Pauh, a desperate UMNO is pulling out all the stops to act against anyone it thinks is a threat to its survival – and it’s beginning to attack  Malaysian cyberspace.

They have now instructed the MCMC – Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission – another running dog statutory body – to block all Malaysian internet access to the Malaysia Today website. The original website is no longer accessible from Malaysian ISP’s. The new alternate website is here:

In doing so UMNO is tacitly acknowledging that Malaysia Today – run by Raja Petra Kamarudin – has done enormous damage to UMNO-BN, by publishing incriminating documents, news and insider revelations about the corrupt inner workings of UMNO. With an estimated readership of 1.5 million, Malaysia Today and Malaysiakini are the two foremost independent news portals in Malaysia and wield enormous influence, as witnessed in the build-up to the March 8 political tsunami.

The person most likely behind the current assault on Malaysia Today is Najib Tun Razak, who has gone from PM heir-apparent to a political pariah, hounded by the ghosts of Altantuya, defence kickbacks, his 1987 ‘we-will-bathe-the-country-in-Chinese-blood’ keris-waving stunt, the intimidation of PI Balasubramaniam (in relation to the Altantuya case) and attempted intimidation of Dr. Mohd. Osman (whose refusal to ‘amend’ his leaked medical report is a pain in the arse for the Sodomy 2 conspirators) and many, many other scandals.

“Who Wants to Be a BILLIONAIRE?!?!?” – Ghostline Edition

17 05 2008

Tuan-tuan dan puan-puan,

Welcome to this week’s edition of ‘Who Wants to be a BILLIONAIRE?!?!?!”, with our guest contestant Tan Sri Datuk UMNO bin Barisan.

Welcome back to the show, Tan Sri Datuk. Listen carefully. This week’s billion-ringgit question is:

“In Malaysia; when your house is on fire, what is the CORRECT thing to do? Do you…”

A. risk your life to rescue the banknotes you hid under your mattress;
B. set fire to your neighbour’s house;
C. shoot the person who tried to wake up the kampung by shouting “Api! Api!”; OR
D. all of the above.

This is a very special question, Tan Sri. ALL the answers are correct. But only ONE answer is correct correct correct!

For ONE… BILLION… RINGGIT… What is your answer?

Excerpt from the Malaysian Insider, full article is at:

Media on the mat for leaking out reportKUALA LUMPUR, May 16 — The fallout from the Royal Commission report on the V.K. Lingam video scandal has claimed its first victim – the press.

Police reports were today lodged against the Berita Harian, New Straits Times and The Star by the Prime Minister’s Department for breaching the Official Secrets Act and publishing excerpts of the report before the Cabinet ruled that it could be made public.

The Malaysian Insider has learnt that commission members, ministers and Umno politicians have been upset with several newspapers for breaking the embargo on the explosive report which confirmed what Malaysians long suspected – that the appointment of judges during the Mahathir era was manipulated by individuals close to the then prime minister.

Merry Kerismas! Samy Gets a Big Cheer

25 12 2007

Below: the Seminator ain’t gettin’ the love this Christmas but he did get his own reality TV show on live ASTRO broadcast at the Aatam 100 Vagai talent show in Penang on Sunday night (23 Dec). A salute to the audience who finally decided they’d had enough, and told Samy to vamoose in no uncertain (and I hear, some unprintable) terms.

So much for continuing to fool the people regarding the real status of MIC. I’m guessing it’s no presents for Minister for Misinformation Lord Zam Zam Alakazam bin Maidin either, because this is one he didn’t see coming and it was live.

1 down, 196 more BN MP’s to go.
