Learn to tell half truths like Bung Moktar did

Today’s The Star has a photo of Bung Moktar claiming he merely slapped his palm on the top of the other hand.

But footage on RTM showed Bung Moktar did the vulgar sign. We Hokkien call it ‘kok lay’ but I am not sure what it means in translation. Normally, this sign is only reserved for the very, very stressed out situation because you cannot take both hands away from the car steering when you are trying not to let the mini bus cut into your lane. So, usually, it is ‘wind down the window and give them an up-yours’.

In this Youtube age and blogs, you cannot run away. We bloggers love sensational news like these.

In the end, Bung Mokthar admitted, Oopps…I did it on Malaysiakini.

Datuk Bung Mokhtar (BN-Kinabatangan) hari ini mengaku membuat isyarat tangan yang dianggap lucah di Dewan Rakyat sewaktu bertikam lidah dengan ahli parlimen Pakatan Rakyat semalam.

“Ya, memang saya buat tetapi bukan itu maksudnya. Setiap orang ada persepsi sendiri dan ia bukan biadap dan bukan apa yang orang fikirkan,” kata ahli Parlimen Kinabatangan ketika ditemui di lobi Parlimen.

Now, this post is not to condemn anyone. I am a mother to teens and I am using this to tell them and all their teens and youths friends what are wrong here. It is strictly a mommy and children’s talk.

1) Making lewd signs like these, acceptable if provoked because we are all human. But if you are elected into Parliament, it is not ok, ok? There are rules and regulations and we must always respect that. Let’s say you are in a zoo, standing by the gorilla’s cage and suddenly the gorilla’s pissed on your head, you can give the beast a Johnson clap. If you did it elsewhere and someone whacked you into meaty pulp, I will say padan muka you. But mommy won’t smack you.

2) Not admitting when you are wrong, is definitely a big wrong. One smack. What did I teach you about being truthful?

2) Being a man, and yet evading things, trying to worm out of the problem with excuses, another big smack. What about integrity, principle, being man?

3) Telling lies and then, giving even more lame excuses, mommy will say you are a useless, pondan, tarak bola, ular, pengecut, penipu…..and many more descriptions.

4) And worst still, if you keep repeating this in Parliament if you ever become one next time, (note this is not the first time Bung did it) and you keep getting voted in and assigned some position there, mommy can only fault whoever voted you and whoever appointed you.

Another day, another sensational news. Interesting times we live in.

So, chewren semua, bila besar nanti, jangan jadi macam Abang Bung. Kalau salah, kata salah. Jangan nak kelentong. Bila pecah rahsia, malu tu.

  1. So it is true then what he did, thanks for the “feed”, was wondering what signs everyone was talking about.

    This Bung fella, judging by the way he talks and acted on previous occasions, it makes us really wonder what Lah Lah see in the people he picked? They proved to be vulgar, rude and crude fellas. This fella somemore is wakil rakyat! Die lah our Sabahan and Sarawakian friends…
    Who was he making that “friendly” gesture to by the way? So did the other fella gave back a “high” five to Bung?

    Can’t wait till the day PR really boot these farkers to oblivion!

    Oh ya, I read somewhere Lah Lah blame current situation on you bloggers woh? How ah like that? He is running out of people to blame oledi, sometimes I try to figure out these politicians(Lah Lah and gang), to see what is their point, I get totally and utterly confused and lost!

    Luckily this Bung fella YB, otherwise he is going to get wallup the minute he walk out on the street! I would be the first in the queue!

  2. Thanks for the video clip. I tot he is showing his middle finger but it is another sign. hahaha…. That Bung is the samseng besar, like a gangster. Always making kacau only. He is there to mess around and not helping the rakyat to fight for their right. I think his kawasan parlimen should be very ashamed of him.

  3. This man is a disgrace to his party and the people who put him in power. Courageous is he who can admit his mistakes, apologize and promise to not do it again. Not covering up excuses with more excuses.

  4. admit…apologise…life goes on as usual.

    wonder if he holds any bogus PhD, MSc etc etc fr the infamous web only Uni.
    u can buy mercedes C class, E class or even S class but u can not buy class !
    can i suggest, next time wanna show hand signs.. go home n change into sarong koyak and singlet lah, don wear suits n show signs…. it’s like makan shark fin with tomato sauce.

  5. JT – These bunch hor, they only know how to lie, don’t know anything else wan. Follow the leaders mah….Then, our nation also follow leaders and the children also follow. One day, sure the whole nation kaput because of this tendency lor. Him showing the sign is ok to me because we are used to moronic acts like these mah. But lying about it is not ok mah, bad examples.

    The Yarning – It puzzles me why he never get kicks out.

    klaw – Without him, parliament is boring mah…All circuses and zoos must have clowns.

    choonie – Don’t know lor….I don’t know why they vote him also. And that ex-Pahang MB, sama pangsa. At least he kena voted out.

    9pek9bo – These people hor, they show the bad examples. Then, their youths do little bit out of tandem, they act like the world is ending. Never look in mirror at their own acts.

    toolan – Apparently, he bad luck lor. He showed to Chow Kon Yeow but they didn’t see it but RTM1 showed it live. This one is call laknat tuhan. LOL. Caught on camera, live on air. You imagine this is one of the PR’s people? Sure they tarik the whole PR MPs into the shit holes.
