I say Malaysians are too emotional

So, the man has apologised. Everything is fine now.

But I am surprised to see so many blog posts over the issue. If it comes from Shadowfox, it is funny and entertaining. If it comes from veteran so-po bloggers, that made me think twice about this thing call faith. But before that, let me show you what I said in one of the comment. I posted around 3 am.

Heh, as I see it, if one day, just play-play pretend only lah, ok, all kena potong kkc, LKS will just say, “I did my best..but my best wasn’t good enough..” I am joking of course, so all you over emo peeples dun flame me hor? I don’t think it is as simple as it appears. Surely there must be some reasons behind it. I don’t know…Maybe he thought tomorrow is April 1st? Blek. I have faith still.

Faith is when we have to believe beyond everything else that the person we trusted will not do something that we feel is wrong. Faith is to keep holding on until the final moments.

Again, I don’t care about the Silverland. Heck, I don’t even care about politics and politicians. But I do enjoy peeking into the inner thoughts of so many veteran bloggers and they do surprised me with their lack of faith. I am not referring to us regular bloggers who can diss anyone, anything, anytime, anyhow because we are personal bloggers who cannot/musn’t be taken seriously. But if they want to be taken seriously, I think they have to be a little bit more firm in their trust and belief in someone as veteran as the man himself.

  1. The fella actually read all our opinions and posts.

    He came by my blog a few times from his wp-admin links.

    Glad that he woke up this time.

  2. It is precisely because Malaysians are emotional that he got the whip from many a Malaysian – irregardless whether they are Malays, Chinese or Indians. I think many Malaysians who voted for BR this time wants to think of themselves as Malaysians first and do not want anything to jeopardise this movement. LKS’s statement was jeopardising that very dream.

    The positive outcome from the barrage of criticisms (me included) towards LKS is that we are seeing a unity amongst the people towards race-brand Malaysian and not Malay, Chinese or Indian. If it were a couple of years back, we would have Chinese bashing taking place 😛

    Nevertheless, a wound has been made and we must not kid ourselves that it would heal overnight. DAP has much to do to regain the confidence and trust of others, especially the PAS supporters. Time will tell and with his immediate apology, therein lies my faith that the battle for race-brand Malaysian will continue to regain its momentum.

  3. Well your right we should have more faith. But I guess it was important that a big huh ha was made about it so he realized the impact of his actions. I too felt that he must have had some sort of reason and we shouldn’t fly off the handle but its important to voice out…

    But as someone commented he is after all a politician and the fact that there were an opposition has to be taken into account. Most importantly he is human. People make mistakes.. We can’t expect miracles or mountains in a few days..baby steps..baby steps..slowly but surely

  4. I agree with u. I think a lot of ppl are too quick to criticize the old man. They forgot he is a human being with some baggage from the past that is hard to forgive and forget. Why can’t he speak his mind (although I agree he could have say it differently to avoid the backlash)? Like antraxxx said, he is a politician, not Mother Teresa lah!!

  5. This is the game of Politics and all Actors in play.
    I want to get back my daily life, its only 5 days, can’t imagine what would happen the next 365days x 5 years ??

  6. actually its not so much of loosing the faith, its more of a dissapointment of a rush decission, its more of an emotional driven response than something that is well thought of… faithi is still there… support is still there…

  7. Active participation is Good for everyone and letting YB LKS knew what we thought made him a real people’s representative, which can’t be said for any of Badut Nasional’s puppets.

    Barisan Rakyat will be great since feedbacks of the rakyat reaches them at the speed of…err.. TM Sux the ‘best of efforts’ company.

  8. LKS played a shrewd ploy….

    Now, he proved for all to see that DAP is infact supported by Malaysian from berbagai lapisan rakyat….

    No longer can that brother racist fella from MCA can say anything…..

    DAP does not belong to the Chinese only, it now belongs to MALAYSIANS….

    Long live the Barisan Rakyat !!!!

  9. LOLZ, just as one issue is solved, another appears. Now PKR merajuk pulak.

    Everyone, I feel really it is just a ploy like some of you said. Ka Chuak (cockcroach in Hokkien) already made the racist remarks and I am sure a few millions Chinese will say the same thing if the ‘three a crowd’marriage have problems in future. So, LKS is smart to make it known from the start that he did ‘not agree, yet nothing can be done’ about it. Then, the blame won’t fall on DAP in future IF things didn’t work out.

  10. bongkersz… this looks for sure gonna be a long drawn out
    affair… longer than you or me or any of us… the end result? maybe our kids or grandkids time?

  11. If you want to have a better future for our children in Malaysia, do your part by signing the on-line petition at http://www.petitiononline.com/RCER2008/petition.html

    This is one of the way (non-violence) to bring our message to the Government.

    Don’t just sit there, stand up and be counted! We want a fair and transparent election.


    1) Gerrymandering. The discrepancy between number of voters in voting areas is too great. The smallest parliamentary seat (Federal Territory, Putrajaya) has only 6,608 voters while the parliamentary seat for Kapar in Selangor has 112,224 voters. What this means is that one vote in the Putrajaya parliamentary constituency is equivalent to 17 votes in the Kapar constituency.

    2) Phantom voters. A common tactic is to ‘buy’ the identity card of the voters. Party members from the ruling parties will then vote on the voters’ behalf. Random checking of a person’s identity must be conducted using those finger print checking device (like the bank use). Any voting done on another person’s identity must be made a serious offence under the election law.

    3) Postal votes. The rules on postal voting must be reviewed, tightened and amended. The current rule favours the ruling party as the armed forces personnel and policemen who vote by ‘postal voting’ would obviously not jeopardize their career or promotion prospect by voting for the opposition. Voting under postal voting is not secret as it is under the watchful eyes of the senior officers. Christina Liew of DAP (Api-Api) lost due to postal votes. The ruling party has control of 250,000 postal votes!

    4) Spoiled votes. How do we define spoiled votes. It is very easy to turn good votes into spoiled votes (by adding one more x to the ballot paper). Are spoiled votes being verified and watched over by the party representatives? In marginal areas in which the winning margin is razor thin, the so-called spoiled votes need to be scrutinized.

  12. alah.. all these bolehland drama is a waste of time to layan and waste the newspaper spaces, waste energy and electricity of the tv

    all the politician seems to be very kanak-kanak ribena like.

  13. Ahli politikus seriously pay attention to bloggers or else ended up like ex Info Ministikus.

    Tomorrow LKS should announce his retirement.
    I don’t want a people rep who have too much anger, spicy temper and fox brain to lead our country.
