I was checking back my thoughts on the Namewee’s [tag]Negarakuku [/tag]post and found that I had such a good time tiu-ing one random blogger who kapster without using his fat brains. BTW, I had shut off the comment board for that post because I get some random fools who like to come and give their 2 sens without thinking or reading or even understand what I was saying.
That post was written by me on July 22 and it is almost a month now. The issue is blown much bigger now. Kids as young as 7 years old are watching the video and laughing at it like some MTV thrash. Teens are using it as their ringtones. We think, yeah, it is fine and funny. But as I said, the section of people who are mentioned in the video may not think it is. So, parents, I urge all of you to explain to your children, regardless of their age about this Negarakuku’s case. Do not make it into a racial issue. Because like I told my sons, we will only end up lose-lose if both parties keep going on about it.
Politicians are now taking advantage of it to gain political mileage. Bloggers, the new voice in Malaysia, are using it to hit back at the Government over their dissatisfactions with everything. Everyone wants to have their say in it. But we forget that the people we meet on the streets, may not voice their anger on blogs. They may keep it seething inside. You probably have no idea what kind of comments we (some of us bloggers who posted about this issue) received. (all deleted of course)
Chinese, in the meantime, are talking loud and clear. Just two nights ago, the people are talking about it in the coffeeshop.
If this goes on, all it needs is just a little provocation and I tell you, it can turn ugly. It is no help that our ‘I am fair, have been fair, will be fair’ leader has no teeth in this issue. For our country’s sake, make a decision and ask all your followers to just shut up. Move on. If you think a punishment is needed, get it done with. If you think it is not necessary, then, tell the rest to shut up. Humans are very easily influenced. You cannot control the 21 millions’ minds. If you cannot control your own SIL and cronies, how are you going to control the 21 millions when they decide that a fist fights are in order?
By now, it is not about [tag]Namewee[/tag], the invidivual. It is much bigger. Parents have the heaviest responsibilities to make sure that their children know they can and cannot say in public because if they touch the wrong button, kaboom. Trust me, I have kids and we talk about current issues all the time. Their ideas are very refreshing but interesting or not, we adults know that we have our unwritten rules when we live in a multi-racial and different religions country like ours. It is not about being fearful, it is about living cohesively.
Thank you, very much. Now, who wants to misquote what I just wrote and get tiu-ed? Try me, I damn sienz.
