Too much!

I don't support the opposition's cause but I will never do anything to blacken my professionalism in attacking their policy by writing disdainful article about them.

In recognising them as a strong opposition, I had all this while only criticised their politics, their approach and their incendiary methods but had never try to launch nauseating personal attacks on them.

And similarly, I don't condone and cannot accept any politicians - both from Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat - subscribing to such a dirty game to gun down their opponent. Yes, nothing is clean about politics but creating 'a death scene' on the social media about someone we despise, is totally filthy and inhuman!
Another prominent Malaysian has been "killed" on Facebook.
This time, it is Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (pic) – PKR president and wife of opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
Dr Wan Azizah supposedly "died" yesterday, according to an offensive and vulgar posting on popular social network site Facebook by a user known as "Blue Wave Army".
The user wrote in Bahasa Malaysia: "isteri ketua pembangkang dato seri wan azizah menghembuskan nafasnya yang terakhir tepat jam 7 petang tadi. Al-fatihah. Dengan ini, Hilanglah lagi mujahidah bangsat dalam pr. Alhamdulillah. -Syasya-"
(The wife of opposition leader Dato Seri Wan Azizah took her last breath at exactly 7pm just now. Al-fatihah. With this, lost is another scoundrel martyr in PR (Pakatan Rakyat). Praise be to God.)
In the same posting, there was also a picture of Dr Wan Azizah covered in white and another photograph of several men digging a grave.
Penang PKR Youth chief Dr Afif Bahardin said they will be lodging a police report against the Facebook user for spreading the false news of their party president's death.
"We ask the police to look seriously into this and take the appropriate action against those who uploaded the pictures and spread this false news," he said in a statement today.
Dr Afif said they expect the police to act swiftly to nab the culprit just as they had done with the Facebook user who had uploaded a doctored picture showing Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor dead from a supposed plane crash in Sumatera.
The disturbing picture showed a smashed body with Rosmah's head intact. The Facebook user, known as Syed Saifullah, was promptly picked up by the police from his home in Seri Iskandar, Perak, early this month.
"Action was taken immediately on the Facebook user in Rosmah's case. We expect the police to act fast in this case as well.
"Prove that the police does not practise selective crime prevention. The police had claimed that their credibility was challenged in Rosmah's case, so now they are being tested again. To what extent will the police force allow itself to be challenged?" Dr Afif said.
There are five Facebook accounts bearing the name "Blue Wave Army" when checked this morning. It is unclear which one made the posting and whether it has been removed.
Call it a social media 'madness' but it really uncalled for and deplorable.

I believe it didn't come from pro-Umno or pro-BN cybertroopers because from day one Umno information chief Ahmad Maslan suggested the idea about forming the 'Blue Wave Army' to level the 'Red Bean Army', some irresponsible quarters were already taking advantage by using its tagline.

I agree that the police and Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) should investigate the matter and take appropriate action.

Anwar's corrupt mind

Anwar feels he lives in a 'undemocratic' Malaysia. Labeling the country as most corrupt, its election system full of fraudulent, the judiciary and media under the armpit of the ruling party, and accusing Putrajaya of wanting to wipe off his politics by sending him to jail, has again used the foreign media as a platform to moulder the country's image.

In his letter published by Washington Post, the Opposition Leader said:
In our Malaysia, all media would be independent and free to shine sunlight on excesses of power, be they in government or the private sector. Most certainly we would repeal draconian laws, such as the Sedition Act, so they cannot be used to muzzle political opponents. In our pursuit of a robust and dynamic economy, social justice principles would prevail over unfettered accumulation of wealth by the rich and powerful. Rent-seeking projects would no longer be allowed to be masqueraded as infrastructure spending, nor would the misappropriation of state funds be permitted under the guise of subsidy cuts while higher and higher taxes are foisted on the middle and lower classes to pay the bills.
It was the draconian law he supported during his tenure as deputy prime minister and finance minister that brought him wealth and fame (not mentioning his first jail sentence for sodomy).

It was the same set of economic engineering that saw his cronies reaped tonnes of money  from projects awarded directly and via special arrangements.

It was the same newspapers and TV stations that gave him the most publicity, protecting his politics and lifted him to from 'nobody to a sombody'. And it was his former boss Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who picked and groomed him as a potential successor.

Of course, it was the same government funds once managed by his ministry that was channeled to almost the same pool of entrepreneurs and recipients.
In tending to the needs of all races, the Pakatan Rakyat envisions a pluralistic society in which moderate Islam coexists harmoniously with other faiths whose espousal is a fundamental liberty under the federal constitution. It would be a far cry from the diabolical politics of the ruling party, which purveys to the Western world its facade of moderation in religious and race relations while pursuing a policy of race baiting and incitement to religious hatred — abuses widely documented by groups including Suaram and Human Rights Watch. With the print and electronic media under the regime's full control, rumors are spread about an imminent government takeover by Christians, threats of violence are hurled against non-Muslims, Bibles are seized and bishops get hauled in by the police for interrogation. My address to a congregation in a Catholic church one Sunday was condemned as an act of apostasy.
Yes, he is still a Muslim (perhaps a good one, far better than any ulama in PAS) but he was also one of the big critics of the non-Muslims and non-Malays, accusing them of trying to demonise the Malays by rejecting the New Economic Policy.

It was also the same NGOs, namely Suaran, the Human Rights Watch, Aliran and others he battered for their bias and wrong reporting about Malaysia, about the government and about Umno, which prompted him to go around the globe giving a clearer picture of the country, including its democracy.

However, he now hopes for US President Barack Obama to help 'reinstate democracy in Malaysia' when, in fact, some pro-US regimes supported by Washington are turning into a communist-like governments.

Take a look at Egpyt now, a few years after pro-US 'democracy movement' revolted and unseat Hosni Mubarak. And don't take off our eyes on Iraq and Afghanistan, Libya and Syria; and of course Ukraine and Poland. Is there US-like democracy in subscribe?
President Obama's visit to Malaysia this weekend comes at a pivotal time. It would be an opportune moment to live up to the ideals Obama espoused in his campaign and the early days of his administration. Then, there was hope that U.S. engagement with Muslim countries would be based on mutual respect and mutual interest. Yet as the Arab Spring came and went, hope was eclipsed by disappointment. It is baffling that the United States can talk about a democratic transition in Egypt today as hundreds of innocent people are sentenced to death while thousands languish in prison.
In Malaysia, there is an opportunity to take a different path.
Our agenda for Malaysia is straightforward. We envision a nation that enforces the rule of law; a country where judges are independent of executive influence, the media are free and the election commission conducts its affairs unfettered by the dictates of the ruling party. We would fight corruption by guaranteeing the independence of the Anti-corruption Commission and removing the laws that make government procurements opaque.
How did Pakatan Rakyat manage to wrest Penang, Selangor, Kedah, Perak (for few months) and keep Kelantan in 2004 and 2008 (minus Kedah). Had the government fully controlled the Election Commission, none of the states would be 'allowed' to fall to the opposition.

What about his 'Malaysia Spring' which saw masses took to the streets in protest, brawled with the police and ransacked public properties. A democracy too?

And talking about corruption - he should have noticed how the PR-rule states got more corrupt in giving out projects to their cronies.

Simply a corrupt mind!
