blog on the Internet. So Raja Petra (better known as RPK or Pete to his friends) is a threat to national security. Because he writes what Malaysians want to say. Because he challenges Malaysians to think. Because he challenges the politicians.
And the UMNO man who screamed bigotted statements that assassinate racial harmony and defied common sense walks free. He is even appointed advisor to his party branch. And the man who once brandished a keris (Malay dagger) and screamed for Chinese blood to be spilled is set to be prime minister of this country. And...and...and .... I think I need not quote you any more examples of double standards in Bolehland.
Another thing that surprised me is that the self-appointed champion of the people, Anwar Ibrahim has been so quiet on the issue of RPK's arrest and detention in Kamunting. On the day that RPK was sent off to the detention centre Anwar's blog carried a headline advertising his interview with Al Jazeera!!! And how he is the 'spark' that lit Reformasi or some crap like that. (Well, he did issue a statement today, it's on his blog now, that did mention RPK in one line. And of course today his own ass...sorry...is on the line.)
Frankly, as a Malaysian, I am getting a little tired of this la. You can't seem to trust anyone in politics anymore. Not that you ever could la.
