This is the way to protest against Fitna…

All right, guys and gals!

Before you go rushing off with printout copies of Geert Wilder’s photo to distribute to your friends to trample your feet on, fly darts onto his nose, flick a match to burn his photo to death. Before you go gather your friends to represent Malaysia to burn Netherland’s flag to ashes in front of the high commission…

Look at the pic below and see how a paraplegic painter can do a classy, civilised and admired protest. Ask your heart. Can you do something this meaningful to convey your true feelings without hurting or agitating anyone else’s peace further? Perhaps you prefer to enjoy a few seconds of infamy in a newspaper somewhere? Or heavens forbid, have your face consumed with unholy wrath to appear on somebody’s blog post?

Classy kind of protest

Perhaps you talk to Geert and find out why the likes of him have so much against your kind. Or what have your kind against his kind. Let the conversation begin. Talk it over, kids.

GE12…What are Malay blogs saying?

Curious about what Malay blogs are saying about UMNO’s drama minggu ini series, I searched Malaysiakini‘s Malay section.

But I found this new blog through WordPress instead.

Mmmmmm…

Goodbye, Malaysia mainstream media and newspapers

Dear Bernama and Mainstream Media (especially The Star),

I already ‘tahan’ your imbecile reporting on Perak, Kedah and Selangor. I cannot tahan anymore!!!

Your reporting on the Trengganu issue of Menteri Besar appointment is a demonstration of gross imbecility in action.

You have abandoned whatever little principles of journalism 101 taught you. You have not done homework to refer to the sources of law eg. the state laws. You have not spent energy to verify facts with more than 1 tired constitution expert. You blindly entitle your articles as “Constitutional Crisis”, when it is only a political impasse. You misled your readers.

Continue with your paparazzi style reporting and the rakyat will gladly cheer you on your spiraling descent into oblivion.

Kak Pidah in the backbencher seat with diamonds…

Somebody beat me to this.

I wonder if Malaysiakini and Malaysia-today.net will do a re-run of Rafidah’s AP Chronicles. Ah, the good ole times, how they have passed us by…

No more Rafidah queening it at the Dewan Rakyat. I think Shahrir Samad would be one of those happy ones to see the queen dethroned.

Coming soon grand opening of Dewan Rakyat session in May… featuring Rafidah as a backbencher. I hope she’ll wear her big, big, big sparkling diamonds set, otherwise hard to figure out where she’ll be seated.

Anwar to form new government? Please get Malaysians’ blessing…

Dear sir,

I read this in Malaysiakini.

Are you in a rush for the Prime Minister seat now or going to openly campaign for PM in the next General Election?

If now, appreciate please could you ask the PEOPLE of Malaysia for their blessing? It is important, because blessing (permission) can do wonders for a nation to heal any divisions, to move forward confidently and for families to live harmoniously.

An answer from Barisan Rakyat- DAP/ PKR/ PAS would be appreciated too, if Anwar is very busy. My two questions are:

Was GE12 about putting Anwar in the PM seat?

Were the people informed about this objective?

Thank you.

PM unveiled new cabinet lineup: My wish only partly came true

PM unveiled new cabinet lineup just now. I’m happy for most part and unhappy and suspicious for some.

Happy 🙂

Rafidah Aziz, Jamaluddin Jarjis are out

Zaid Ibrahim in (hurray!)

Shahrir Samad in (double hurray!)

Maximus Ongkili (good la, let’s see if he can do magic for this very important new economy driver)

Rais Yatim and Tunku Azlan (gentlemen, please redeem Malaysia’s image)

UnHappy 😦

Nazri Aziz still lurking around (Zaid, please jaga this fella prone to gangster characteristics & outbursts)

Nor Mohd Yakcop (I very suspicious he able to handle bad times economy, but I take consolation in Amirsham Abdul Aziz’s expertise will outshine this Md Yakcop’s)

Noh Omar (Please take care of your utterances from now on, else the entrepreneurs will all run far away)

Azalina Othman (No more Brickendonbury, ok?)

New UnHappy (grrrr…)

Muhammad Muhd Taib (aiyo, yo, RPK – please train your binoculars on this guy 24/7!!!)

Suspicious quality:

Mohd Zin Mohd (can he do better than what he did with Islamic matters?)

Ooooh… PM, we await with bated breath, who’s the new people to take over 4th floor….

Dear God, it’s about Pak Lah and the Cabinet

Dear God,

As Malaysians await for Pak Lah’s positive action to deliver a better Cabinet for 2008, I would like to take this opportunity to propose some ideas to be weighted in for PM’s decision making. Please could you send someone to tell Pak Lah?

This little voice may not be the richest or loudest, but I am sincerely wishing for Pak Lah to be granted the outmost courage and strength to make the best decision for Malaysia as we await anxiously a clear direction out of the current limbo and uncertainty. Malaysia needs the best people in the Cabinet.

My humble idea to be considered in drawing up names for Malaysia’s new Cabinet (In fact, everyone of my family and friends also fervently wish for PM to surprise us with this gift):

1. DROP currently perceived as ‘dubious’ Ministers / politicians – Dato’ Rafidah Aziz, Dato’ Jamaluddin Jarjis, Dato’ Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz, Dato’ Nor Md. Yaakcop, Dato’ Seri Azalina Othman Said, Dato’ Noh Omar, Dato’ Paduka Badruldin Amiruldin

2. Appoint ‘clean’ and sincere politicians to ministerial posts. People like Datuk Sharir Abdul Samad (Minister for Environment?), Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir (Youth & Sports)

3. Appoint politicians with proven track record contributing to nation’s economy – Dato’ Chong Kah Kiat (Minister for Tourism)

4. Appoint a woman as Finance Minister or important portfolio (perhaps Dato’ Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil? She’s a woman and a bright mind trained in law, who can be counted upon to conscientiously watch our nation’s purse string and well regarded by all races)

5. DROP ‘dubious’ underperformers – Dato’ Reezal Merican, Datuk Vincent Lim and others who took part in putting up roadblocks in PM’s conversation and direct communication with Malaysians (fyi, they reside below PM Office at 4th floor).

6. Khairy must never be considered for any posts (whether its true or not, he is good or bad, please let him sit outside the cabinet as his name does not generate love).

 

I know this is no small request but, Malaysia needs PM to be granted great courage to do his best for the nation. I am sure, with Jeanne (a good woman) at Pak Lah’s side, the PM will find the strength to do this.

Amin.

NB: Please also stop the Noise:

These days, mainstream media organizations like Utusan Malaysia and Bernama, whether intentionally or naively, are playing a not too admirable role contributing to political hatred, pitting Malays against non-Malays. In this regard, may I request you to move PM to please telephone BN component party chiefs to instruct all their members to BEHAVE GENTLEMANLY, QUIT INSULTING THE PEOPLE’S DECISION, RESPECT THE RESULTS OF THE GE AND KEEP UP THE GOOD NAME OF BN (or whatever is left of it).

Support from friends and Malaysiakini readers appreciated.

A cyber prescription for Barisan Nasional. Pak Lah are you listening?

Perhaps some Malaysiakini readers may have already written about this. But this take is better. hehehe…

Any BN leaders out there can carry this important message back to your leadership?

NB: Wouldn’t hurt newly crowned state governments to read it too.

I voted for Shahrizat, so there! Response from Nurul Izzah awaited.

Boys and girls and readers of Malaysiakini,

Some of you are really hypocrites and don’t practice what you preach. You blah blah blah about equality, respect for people BUT you ridiculed and trampled over my choice to exercise my rights to choose the candidate I am best comfortable with.

Whatever happened to ‘I may not agree with what you say but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it?’

Tsk.. tsk..tsk.

Myself will respect the results of the vote for Lembah Pantai and their collective wisdom.

Will be looking forward to get a response from Nurul Izzah on the questions in earlier post.

Any Malaysiakini readers voting in Lembah Pantai?

I wonder if any of these concerns from some voters of Lembah Pantai connect with any of you Malaysiakini readers out there?
