Shooting the Messenger


The crackdown on cyberspace, the showcause letter to three national language papers akin to Operasi Lalang (Sin Chew Daily, the Sun and Suara Keadilan) looks set to be a case of shooting the messenger whereas the person that cry wolf goes away scott free without facing the ISA. If the papers cannot report the truth that was said by a guilty party who will? A moment of silence please. To Raja Petra we land a silent prayer for your safety and release. Maybe the police should look into and Ahmad's rhetorics and slap the seditious and racial inciting writings as well to ensure that it does not look like its so targeted a crackdown.

Honestly, I’m disappointed. I think if they want to have a serious discussion, they have to first prove that they know what they are talking about. And Sir, respectfully, at this task, they have failed. I’ve been very fortunate to be able to watch them shit in their panties about this whole thing, only to have the whole thing disputed. You know, it’s really nice that they are having a nice open public shit eating contest like this.

Typically, these “peoples” occupy positions of large influence (or they believe they have influence, at least) and they pontificate their opinions that show they don’t have any idea how anything works. So what’s the answer? I say fuck ‘em all.
