Oh Najib, Najib...tsk...tsk...tsk...sigh
Now I am getting really confused. A couple of days ago, Najib warned us of the effects of unregulated use of the Internet and how unfettered access to Western culture would decimate Asian values. Today Najib is out there on YouTube answering questions which he received via Twitter #tags which he initiated. But...but...but...I know what you are thinking. How can? Well, Najib did say "our children and future generations of ASEAN should retain their Asian cultural values and they must be protected from the threats on the Internet." He also added that the public must be educated on how to use the Internet in a responsible manner. And today on YouTube he showed us just what he meant and how to use the Internet in an Asian way. You see, when you use the Internet you must not raise any 'sensitive' issues. Like politics, transparency in government, justice etc. That presumably would decimate something or other. You must talk about things that really matter. Like where to get the best char koay teow. Like who irons the PM's clothes. Like whether Pirates or Ninjas will win. Like..........SIGH..........I osso don't know la....... If Najib was trying to show us Malaysians a different side of him, a softer more down-to-earth image sort of thing then I would say he fucked up. Big time!!!
A cyber-trooper just scolded me and said I should watch and listen to Najib's future YouTube replies to #tanyanajib and not pre-judge the poor man. Oh you mean there's more? And he does answer more serious questions? Then my question still remains as to why he chose to lead with char koay teow and other 'entertaining' questions.
If I'd wanted entertainment I would go watch the Malaysian Association of Chinese Comedians at PJLA later this month.
