Undi Barisan Nasional BN dan UMNO di pilihanraya Malaysia 2008?

Youtube video of Raja Petra in Port Klang.

The United Malays National Organisation, or UMNO, (Malay: Pertubuhan Kebangsaan Melayu Bersatu), is the right-Wing and the largest political party in Malaysia and a founding member of the Barisan Nasional coalition, which has ruled the country uninterruptedly since its independence. It is known for being a major proponent of Malay Supremacy or ketuanan Melayu and mild Islamic fundamentalism, which holds that the Malays and other Muslims are the “definitive” people of Malaysia and, thus, deserve special privileges as their birthright. (information on UMNO sourced from wiki)

The above on UMNO is just to ‘educate’ readers before the 12th Malaysia election on March 8, 2008.

Now, a piece of news for entertainment sake. Our very ‘respected’ and ‘informed’ Minister of Information said we Malaysians only use the internet for booking airline tickets and surfing for naked photos of Edison Chen and sex tape of Chua Soi Lek. How clever………………….Our Information minister just informed the whole world that we are but a bunch of very rich folks who fly all the time and we are also perverts looking for naked photos of Cecelia Cheung and all the Hongkong actresses.

Is the the kind of people you are going to vote into office? Hell, NO!

MALAYSIA’s Information Minister Zainuddin Mydin has said that the government will not be affected by blogs and other Internet forums that may be created during campaigning for the upcoming elections.

Mr Zainuddin insisted that while the younger generation are tech-savvy, they tend to believe newspaper reports over comments made on the Internet, China Press reported.

He added that the Internet is used mainly to book budget airline tickets or to get entertainment news.

He claimed that he is not worried that blogs and forums critical of the incumbent Barisan Nasional coalition would affect its chances of winning the election.

Since independence in 1957, the multi-ethnic coalition has won every election.

He stressed that young Malaysians would not turn to the Internet for political news.

He said: ‘My children are young professionals and enjoy surfing the Internet. But they don’t read blogs.’

Mr Zainuddin pointed out that Malaysians are a mature lot and would rather give more credibility to newspaper reports than the ‘gossipy news’ on the Internet.

He said that while Malaysia respects press freedom and the right of expression, these liberties are not absolute and must be exercised responsibly.

Mr Zainuddin alluded to how sensitive press reports fanned the Sino-Malay racial riots in May 1969.

REMEMBER – When you cast your vote, vote for anything but UMNO, MCA, GERAKAN, MIC or any parties related to Barisan Nasional. It doesn’t matter which opposition parties you vote for. Don’t worry that if you vote DAP, we are going to see Lim Kit Siang as PM. Don’t be fooled that if you vote PAS, we are all going to see PAS leader as PM. Don’t be misled that if you vote for PKR, Anwar will become PM. This will not happen! What we will get is a more balanced Parliament. Something that has a balance of UMNO, MCA, Gerakan, MIC, PKR, DAP, PAS and etc etc. It will means there are less people like Zam making fools of us Malaysians. When we have more oppositions, they will have more voices to questions all those cases that have been conveniently swept under the carpet. Remember the investigation by the ACA regarding the Tourism Minister and the promotion of tourism in Korea? Remember all the bocor buildings built by Samy Vellu? Remember how many broken highways that were built with our tax payers money?


And what is this piece of news I read on our mainstream media? They detained an 11 years old girl?

From the total, 151 were later released, including rally coordinator S. Manickavasagam and Hindraf adviser R. Raguram. Also released was an 11-year-old girl.

children holding roses had planned to gather outside the Parliament building and the leaders wanted to hand over a memorandum on improving the lot of the Indian community.

At 9.20am, police used tear gas and water cannons to disperse the crowd at Jalan Raja Laut after repeated warnings went unheeded.

Folks – Remember, please do not bother to leave any comments that are sensitive. I will not publish them. Keep your comments humorous, sarcastic and wise.

ADDED : From a blogger to another, may I ask you to take a look at JeffOoi’s call for help with campaign funds?

  1. a sad thing it is to see children involved in political campaigns. despite knowing the fact that there are children in the crowd, the police still used tear gas and water cannon at them.

    malaysia~ truly asia?

  2. The info minister is stupid izzit? If he promote that Malaysians all only use Internet for air tickets and porn, then definitely Google don’t want to come anymore. And that stoopid Multimedia Super Corridor better close shop. Cyberjaya, better turn into race venue for Mat Rempits. (actually, that is very good idea, no? It’s a ghost town anyway, and spares the rest of us). Multimedia University, better turn into phantom postal voter center. All this coming from the info minister.. is he not suppose to promote better access to info. why he so stoopid neber promote internet, but instead make us laughing stock. stoopid barger. niamah.

  3. agnes – Yeah, me too. I don’t fully support Hindraf’s move of using children. But then, I ask myself. If I have to save my husband from something, will I bring the kids along to fight for the cause? I know I will. So, I suppose Hindraf too have their own reaons. I believe they have placed a lot of trusts in Pak Lah that Pak Lah will not resort to this tear gas and water canons if there are kids. And Pak Lah abused their trusts and this is like the last straw that broke the camel (faith in Barisan) back. Bad moves. If I am Pak Lah, I will go out and risk my life (with high security) and build the bridge and show grace.

    I tell you, nothing like a photo of Pak Lah with a little Indian girl photo to garner thousands of votes. They just buried the best chance.

    Oh ya, I didn’t want to say this in my main post for fear of fanning the wrong sentiments.

    This one between you and I only hor?

  4. we are talking about zainuddin or zam, the donkey that blundered on international news on the bersih rally…aiyah, he’s a real moron 🙁

  5. ***He said: ‘My children are young professionals and enjoy surfing the Internet. But they don’t read blogs.’

    Mr Zainuddin pointed out that Malaysians are a mature lot and would rather give more credibility to newspaper reports than the ‘gossipy news’ on the Internet.***

    Young professionals my ass. I bet they don’t even know what a blog is.

    They’re so naive to believe that all those news in the newspapers are real – not to mention that some major newspapers are controlled by certain political parties.

  6. The police were afraid that little children will run amok and cause concern to national security and hence that’s why they refused to grant the permit for the delivery of roses. If they had granted permit, and the crowd go unruly and cause hurt, then the blame lies on the crowd or troublemakers. Instead, they refused a permit, branded the march illegal and then caused hurt by spraying water cannon and tear gas at adults and children. This is how intelligent our police officers are in making decisions.

  7. Lilian.. you sounded like Pinky and the Brain.. World domination! Wahahahahha..

    Well, internet is only for entertainment news and airline ticket.. I guess he is just an outdated old fart who reads govt covered dailies which thinks the world is perfect and beautiful. And his kids too.. SHALLOW!

  8. velkom to..msia!!!!!

    if he tak takut blogs right..he wouldn’t even have to care..y make that statement? make..means he care..he’s sked..and he’s a hypocrite!! muahahhah

    go go blogs!!!

  9. orangcina – NOt like we have any other choices wor. I sapot JeffOoi as a blogger to another lah. I sapot PAS oso…cos no other party to vote in my area. Hehehe.

    The expedited writer – That Mis-information Minister is permanently misinformed. LOL

    huei – Yalor, if Tun M time, he sure tell them to just shut up and don’t create more problems. If I remember correctly, Tun M had problems with that small small eye, fat fat ex Min of Information, Rahmat, I think.

    Patrick – I looked back at my old archives and sometime back KJ said they are going to counter these lies we bloggers (which Mohammadx2 said are pondans) lied on our blogs with their own sites. That’s why I am trying to pwn this UMNO keywords. Just for the heck of it. Because I can. 😛

    pablo – Pak Lah needs a better PR man, like the show Wag the dog movie. A better spin doctor that doesn’t ruffle feathers that much.

    alexallied – Ya mah, we bloggers are damn cheap people to them. Gobloks, beruk, pondans, liars….So who wants to be associated with people like us lah. But at the end of the day, bloggers rule the internet! Yay! I pwn #1 in long tail SEO. Harriruyia!

    M. Kate – Yes, the moment he opens his mouth, he accidentally cause more blunders. Sigh…

    Hasbullah – Aiyor, these days I dare not even watch or listen to the berita perdana. They don’t seem to have a direction when it comes to IT. On one hand, they keep teaching our kids Sayang IT, but on the other hand, they keep pumping into us that IT is bad.

  10. If I was Zam’s children, it would be better to be caught surfing porn then reading anti-government blogs. Surfing porn would be an adolescence behavior, reading anti-government blogs would be defying daddy.

  11. I’m actually quite upset HINDRAF went ahead with the rose march with their kids! The parents’ first and foremost dutues are to keep them safe. Now, I wonder what’s going to happen to the families involved?

    Btw, I agree that BN is kind of naive to think that people’s opinions are not influenced by blogs.

  12. kittycat – I believe the parents placed too much faith and trust in Pak Lah that he will finally relented. They didn’t expect to be treated with tear gas. I was having a retreat with a group of people whom had been to the estates where the majority of Indian labourers have a hard life and after listening to their plights, I actually cannot blame these parents for taking the risk. They are left with very little choices. Those of us with comfortable lives cannot just condemn these parents.

    In the first place, these parents have to work hard labour with very little time to take care of their kids in the first place. And what they are doing now is probably to sacrifice some risks (which as I said, they never thought our dear beloved PM will subject their kids to) for the betterment of the Indians future.

    Have compassion that these parents who are probably too poor to even feed their kids unless they do something drastic. Do get involve more with our Catholic churches and their efforts in helping the poor and probably, we will be more sensitive to others. We have never walk a mile in their shoes…

  13. Huh?…Huh?? Blur blur lah me! Must be the result of reading 5xmom’s blog all the time!!! Smart ministers’ children don’t read blogs! QUOTE: He said: ‘My children are young professionals and enjoy surfing the Internet. But they don’t read blogs.” UNQUOTE …They surf porn! Ha ha ha ha ha!!!!

  14. Strange no one noticed this?

    [He added that the Internet is used mainly to book budget airline tickets or to get entertainment news.]

    [He said: ‘My children are young professionals and enjoy surfing the Internet…]

    Pekenakan his own children only pa. Wahahah!

    Oh btw, first time voter-to-be here, and excited about it! 🙂

  15. CY – Do you remember the big hoo-haa about the male rock singer who bare his chest during a performance on TV? Now that I think about it, maybe he and his kids quietly surfed p0rn kau-kau liao, then, mah hypocrite about it hor?

    kadusmama – Wei, don’t waste your vote ler. LOL, I voted PAS before eventhough there is Gerakan. He is the ex-CM’s son somemore and a friend of my ex-boss. The opposition won’t win but at least they get enough votes not to lose hope in never contesting against coalition parties in future elections.

    MALAYSIA 5th PM !! lol !!

    ops.. sry wor.. underage cannot vote lar ..
    anyway, i dun realli involve in this ..
    bt, from few… in fact, it’s a lot of my indian frenzs…
    i can c BN’s failure in the coming Pilihan Raya xD

    BN sux… Rasuah sux..
    let’s all vote for LILIAN CHAN !!

  17. Yes I do remember that rock-star incident. Wanna know why? Cause the news mentioned “stripper on live TV” and I was sooo… disappointed that it’s a guy xD

    Um, but how does this relate to ala ka zam?

  18. Hear that in army camps, they “undi pos”- all the ten thousands, thousands. The best part is that their ballot paper is checked by their head to make sure it’s the ruling government that has been ticked- if not, not passed! Can you imagine how much secured without sweat?How far is this true? If yes, can anybody do something about it? Isn’t there the other party reps who stand by as election witness? If so, armed personnel should not be involved in voting – they should just serve as they are deemed to serve the COUNTRY without prejudice to which party is ruling. PERSONAL OPINION.

  19. From my side in sarawak, i hope that the opposition will win more to have more voices in Parlimen. Coz in Sarawak seem like the BN is monopolise it. But for this general election i have the feeling that it will be the other way round. Vote for the opposition to hv more balance & voice our rakyat issues. do u guys agree with me! Cheers!
