Yesterday in my post Police targetting Lim Guan Eng I stated that The pathetic RMP are at it again, playing politics, this time by harassing Lim GE.
Today the police decided to harass both PKR and DAP MPs – see Malaysiakini’s Sivarasa, Salahuddin, 7 others in police sights.
Salahuddin stated the investigations on Pakatan MPs for sedition was playing out like a ‘script’ …
… written by …?
He said: "It looks like whoever who talks about the sodomy trial during a ceramah will definitely be charged under the Sedition Act."
If the police had demonstrated equal vigilance against Utusan Melayu and other mainstream mouthpieces of UMNO for their worse acts of sedition (via their racially inflammatory articles) and the likes of opportunisic-bigot Ibrahim Ali, we might have given them the benefit of the doubt, but alas, they’re so pathetically and pariah-ishly predictable.
As my good matey, Dean Johns said about the UMNO Youth rally at the Aussie Hi-Comm in his latest column piece Umno boys protest too much:
… the rally outside the Australian High Commission in Kuala Lumpur, was just one more demonstration of the deceit and double-dealing behind ridiculous slogans like '1Malaysia' and 'Umno Juara Rakyat'.
While this regime denies most Malaysian citizens their constitutional right to peaceful public assembly, Umno/BN positively supports and sponsors protests against its opponents.
No threats of arrest under the ISA as for the rest of the rakyat, not a water cannon in sight, and the police and FRU on hand not to disrupt the performance but to see that it all goes smoothly.
And this bias is absolutely blatant, as when, following last year's outrageous 'cow's head' protest against a Hindu temple, Minister Hishammuddin Hussein defended the culprits with “in this day and age, protests should be accepted in this world as people want their voices to be heard. If we don't give them room to voice their opinions, they have no choice but to protest”.
But then within hours he gave the lie to this self-serving liberal sentiment by condoning the arrest of a handful of people holding a peaceful candle-light vigil in protest against the government. And in a similarly disgraceful display of the same double standard, he initially downplayed a rash of attacks on churches by firebrands opposed to the use of the word 'Allah' by Christians, by suggesting that the culprits were just a bunch of naughty boys.
Naughty boys, juvenile delinquents, mat rempit, whatever, it's patently and painfully evident that protest is only permissible as long as they're Umno/BN boys, as in the recent rally against us nosey Australians.
F* the Minister but we can see just how pathetically political and partisan the Police had been, are and will be … and they have the f* brazen nerve to claim a motto of Tegas, Adil Dan Berhemah (Firm, Fair And Prudent).
