Knee Jerk-off

N.S. is for integration. So let's integrate the baargers!!!
(photo copied from here)

It is a small but nonetheless irritating ......

Niamah!!!

Malaysia must be the biggest knee-jerk reaction country on the planet. Don’t like this or that. Ban! Fast food not good for kids. Ban the advertising. Rock concerts no good for youth. Ban. Films with the word ‘Communist’ in the title. Ban.

The latest knee-jerk reaction was in the papers yesterday and today. Did you read about it?

Rape, sexual harassment in National Service camps. Reaction? Segregate the sexes. Have all girl camps. All female trainers.

And of course the first jerk, oh sorry I of course meant knee-jerk expert, to come out and endorse this action is none other than the chairman of the NS Training Council, Mr. Lee “it’s not my fault. I am only the chairman of the council” Lam Thye. This time his excuse is that parents have also asked for this action to be taken so that their children will be safe. Imagine, after a few decades of this sexual segregation we might breed a whole generation of girls and boys who go, “Huh? You mean got girls/boys in the world meh?”. “Eh? Touch and see. Oooh…nice……” Then the whole thing starts over.

Thankfully, our DPM, in a rare display of rational thought processing, has temporarily put a stop to this particular knee-jerk. And our Sharizat also came out with a gem. She said, “We should build resilience and teach them what is right or wrong and lawful and unlawful.” Yay! Finally, intelligence from politicians.

Now to make sure this lasts.

Niamah!!!

Quiz

Lee Lam Thye is a......

1. jerk

2. jerk-off

3. jerk off afficionado

4. compulsive knee jerker

5. moron

No prizes for guessing the right answer or all of

the above.

Niamah!!!

maybe our NS camps can teach the campers (errr... trainee dun sound too right) some self defence and kick 4ss when faced with molesters, etc...

i think more practical then teaching them M16.

but frankly, you are right about us being a 'knee jerk' country. if anything, i have to add that most of the time, the ppl up there (not in heaven la...) dun seem to think things thru before opening their mouth to 'announce' something.

in corporate world, they would be fired, fired and fired.

Pat, I actually used to think he had integrity during his MP days. Now, there's a number (6) balls licker to add to your list of choices.

If he is not going to use his position of Chairman as a bully pulpit, he might as well declare, "blaaa, blaaa, I'm a scapegoat!". Either that or resign, and save himself from all the brickbats.

Daniel is right! #6 It is! lolx

Hi Pat, I wrote about this in my blog too. But Lee Lam Thye has come out and said he NEVER said the all-girl camps were to limit sexual assault in the NS.Oh, these poor misquoted politicians! There's more idiocy today too.Read my update on rantingsbymm.blogspot.com.

just cancel the NS la jimat rm500mil per year boleh gune subsidi petrol or tol

it is not like those trainees are trained to be soldiers in case of emergencies. shoot the rifle once or twice and it's all for the sake of national security. what a load of crap. i'd rather tembak the NS council itself.

Knee jerks happen when there is no goal, no plan, no strategy,no contingency ,no evaluation and No idea!!

T'Niamah!!!!

great quiz

Pat said...

Yah! I so agree with u! When I was teaching in UKM we had to take out a reference to 'ham and eggs' from a comprehension passage. Apparently, there should be no reference to pigs and pork. In the end, only the ones who REALLY NEED TO KNOW will not know how to recognise a pig, or pork!!??

M.M said...

Hey, Patrick.

OMG, you're insulting your own brother-in-arms? NIAMAH!!!! You have broken the sacred vow of the Michaelian principle to help a brother Michaelian at all times and you insulted one here? :D

patrickteoh said...

Hi m.m. Sorry but I don't subscribe to the rule that a Michaelian must be "protected" at all cost. Brother in arms? Is he one?

Pat, your story reminds me of a joke that Harith used to tell. One day there will be whole generations of Malaysians who've never seen a pig. And when they do see one they will go, "Aiyoh! So cute." and pick one up to cuddle. Wouldn't that be a blast/

... why dont we send the politicians on a NS trip. They need more intergration than we do.

monsterball said...

Lee Lam Thye will sell his soul to the devil for personal benefits.
Without DAP...he was nothing!!
He shocked and disappointed Chinese voters at Bukit Bintang with his well planned betrayal to even shock DAP....he is now a Tan Sri....but ask the Chinese what do they think of LLT. They will say....'NIAMAH KE FA HAI. KOP KEW LAI PUN YEN"
