Anti-tower protest: 100-storey Warisan Merdeka project on Facebook

Came across an interesting response from somebody named Boa who left a comment reacting to the article “Najib ignores anti-tower protest at his ‘peril’, warn analysts” from The Malaysian Insider.

I can only give a little advice to all political players and their think tanks – ignore ripples at your own risk lest it morph into the tsunami to engulf you and your party.

Read what the commentator Boa said and you’ll feel how alike it is to what your paternal politicians have always fed to your grateful ears. It doesn’t work now to talk that way to the individualistic Facebooker, Iphoner, etc.

“PLease lah! Most who click the button on Facebook to reject the Warisan Merdeka Tower dont even know what the project is about. It’s like a fire that catch on in FB. It’s the ‘since everyone is rejecting it, i also want to reject’ type of sentiment. They dont even bother to find out what’s the benefit of the Warisan Tower. When i look at most of my FB friends who rejects this project: They dont even know who is PNB, what is GLC, what is govt funded project versus private funded project. If they really want to know the truth…even 9 yrs old also reject the Warisan Tower in FB. C’mon lah..how can we take the protest in FB so seriously?”
