Pakatan's Super-Hypocrisy

Malaysiakini - Money is wasted on youth (ministry) by Commander (rtd) S Thayaparan (extracts):

how did a young punk get to be a minister? 

Does anyone else find it hilarious that Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman vows to defend the freedom of speech of that doctor who wrote an anti-LGBTQ polemic but remains strangely quiet when it comes to the freedom of speech of Fadiah Nadwa Fikri and Asheeq Ali Sethi Alivi?

KT comment: typical Pakatan double standard - see my post Some canon-ised, some demon-ised.

This should tell you something about the politics at play or maybe even the kind of prejudices which are acceptable to the ruling elite in the country.

Funny isn’t it, that the youngest minister in the government who is supposed to be supportive of youths, has no opinion on the state’s reaction to these two young activists. That Syed Saddiq has the gall to claim that whatever form the new Biro Tatanegara (BTN) and National Service programmes will take, it will mould the new leaders of tomorrow, is the height of hypocrisy.

KT comment: Mahathirism wants to keep its heritage apparatus for its continued sinister programmes, and if necessary, under new labels 

As far as I can tell these two young people are demonstrating leadership qualities that other young people should pay attention to, rather than the leadership qualities (or lack thereof) of the new Pakatan Harapan regime.

Honestly reading and understanding the issues these young people bring up, how they handle criticism and the reaction of the state towards them is far more instructive, in my opinion, on what it means to be Malaysians than whatever voodoo programmes the Youth Ministry belch up to justify its existence.

Which brings me to the little spat between opposition political operative Khairy Jamaluddin and Syed Saddiq about the alleged misuse of funds of the 1Malaysia For Youth programme. Well, duh? Of course, some of the funds would have been misused, but is this really a revelation or is Syed Saddiq just taking a page from the older political operatives instead of truly reforming his ministry?

KT comment: 'Demon-sation' has the beneficial political effect of distracting gullible guppies from the Pakatan government's inability to fulfil its manifesto pledges 

My question is, why does Harapan keep insisting on keeping programmes or tweaking them when before the election they said these programmes were destroying Malaysia?

KT comment: Isn't that super-hypocrisy, criticising the programmes of previous government but keeping them for own use.


  1. Raja Tembak Ktemoc Daily 6-Shots No #1.


    One important factor why government programs have a kind of immortality.

    JPA civil servants , as opposed to political appointees who are usually on contract, cannot legally simply be sacked, short of proven misconduct , which has to go through due process.

    Also both BTN and NS have substantial sunk-cost building facilities , which were actually quite good in the case of BTN (the various Kem Bina Negara scattered throughout the country). They cost money to be maintained or they will fall to ruins.

    For both the permanent staff, and the brick-and-concrete facilities, if they can find a way to retask the agencies and change their operating culture, it will be less pain than simply transferring them to some other unfamiliar jobs.

    1. These jibby provocateurs r targeting FORM over SUBSTANCE arguments!

      They r running out of substantiable issues to fart, thus have to resolve to

      1) digging out past articles, added some ingenious twisting with as little in-depth disclosure as possible to entice the imagination

      2) circumstantial comments deprived of related facts & data of that particular time period

      Poor, poor souls!

      Or else, how to meet the required quantity counts of the kpi?

  2. Cheebye motherfucker kaytee ignores that fucking fact that btn and ns has been abolished.....thanks to pakatan

    I bet with one kaytee kukuciao that if najib does it.....cheebye kaytee will tell the whole world

  3. Super-hypocrisy is when keeping quiet for decades living under those draconian laws or allowing undemocratic institutions to continue operating and flourish and keeping quiet about it until a change of Govt. happens and blaming it on the inactions or delay of the new Govt. in taking actions to discard or close them down.

    Whatever it is, it sure is a breath of fresh air to see voices whether pro or against any legacy issues of the previous regime being debated, made known and discussed in public before any finalisation or decision is made whether by young or old, men or women, opposition or ruling, religious or non-religious, racist or non-racist etc.

    All Malaysians have finally found the Freedom to criticize the Govt. when it was subjugated and gagged for decades by disguised dictators, tyrants, religious bigots, racists etc.

    Welcome to New Malaysia. MERDEKA! MERDEKA! MERDEKA! for the people, by the people and of the people.

    1. Hear Hear !

      Now we can let out yellow balloons tagged Justice, Freedom or whatever and no cops will drag us for questioning, and eventually to face trials, hehehehehe.

      Merdeka, Merdeka, Merdeka !
