Wee is not longer a 'wee' name, so to speak.All this fame (of an unwanted kind) has come about, thanks in no ‘wee’ part to our dear UMNO as I had discussed in a ‘wee’ post Negarakuku - no longer a Wee issue, that I posted yesterday in the ‘wee’ hours of the evening.
Mind you, the malaysiakini article which informed us of Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar saying the government had accepted the apology from the student contradicted in no 'wee' manner another minister's assertion which led to malaysiakini headlining its article as Cabinet rejects apology from rapper.
Perhaps it’s not a ‘wee’ matter of ministers contradicting each other (as was Zainuddin Maidin rudely contradicted by his UMNO colleague), but more of someone making a greater than ‘wee’ fib.
When a minister made a fib, 'wee' or otherwise, it’s no ‘wee’ issue - 'So Minister, please resign' - (sigh), of course I have to sigh a 'wee' sigh - I was just
Indeed an unexpected PAS and an expected DAP lambasted UMNO in no ‘wee’ manner about its disproportionate attacks on a ‘wee’ issue involving a wee student, Wee, even to threatening him with the Sedition Act, which is certainly no ‘wee’ matter.
The opposition accused UMNO of what we, the long suffering public already know – that the ethnic based party has been seeking to incite its members and Malays into a patriotic frenzy over the ‘wee’ issue.
And they aren’t playing with just a ‘wee’ fire when they stroked the flames of bigotry - oh, those unscrupulous pollies with their 'wee weenie' minds.
Mind you, I wasn’t too pleased with the DAP as well for not letting the ‘wee’ matter rest after the MCA, notwithstanding its ‘wee’ influence, attempted to mollify the instigated unrest and had (normally 'wee') Zainuddin Maidin playing the ‘nice uncle’ in graciously accepting Wee’s apology.
Yes, the DAP just had to stand on its ‘wee’ pedantic pedestal and upped the ante with Lim Guan Eng stating sarcastically: "DAP congratulates MCA's success in getting Wee (Meng Chee) to back down and submit to Umno's demands by apologising for his rap video."
The DAP leaders naturally slammed MCA and UMNO in no ‘wee’ way for "demonstrating the extreme lengths and absurd levels that they would go to curb online dissent, stifle diverse views and silence youthful voice." – see malaysiakini's Negarakuku apology: A hollow victory.
Puhleeeze lah, Lim sinseh! It’s all well and OK for the DAP to milk the ‘wee’ issue (as wee-weenie minded UMNO has been obviously doing) when the poor parents of Wee would be the ones facing the potential (and no ‘wee’) threat of some idiots who may choose to be ‘wee’ imitations of Hang Tuah.
Look, Wee had to apologise for no other reason than to take the no ‘wee’ heat off his family. In apologising, he did the right thing by his family, considering those goons could and had even attack an international meet like the Apcet II conference 10 years ago, what more with a ‘wee’ Malaysian Wee family - ;-) just me and my ‘wee’ memory.
The fact of UMNO making a mountain out of a 'wee' molehill is the general election is just a ‘wee’ way away, and those with wee weenie minds want to enlarge their ‘wee’ credentials and even 'wee'-er credibility to win in no ‘wee’ fashion.
Wee has to be the 'wee' sacrifice, at least for a 'wee' more while.
