Hi! I could be your local Y.B.
Today is one day that I am so glad I bought a copy of The Star. There is so much comedy between the pages that at RM1.20 it is almost better value than buying a RM200 ticket to watch Harith Iskander and the Kings and Queens of Comedy Asia!
I am sure that you, like me, are thinking about or discussing the ban on Sexualiti Merdeka and the hilarious "reasons" given for the ban.
"...the event creates uneasiness among the vast majority of the population, it may result in disharmony, enmity and threaten public order" - Khalid Abu Bakar, Deputy Inspector-General.
Phwaaaar!!! Damn terror words, right? Creates uneasiness among the VAST MAJORITY of the population some more. I don't know about you but Sexuality Merdeka has been held since 2008. I have never felt uneasy about it? Have you? Nobody I've met or sat next to at the mamak stall has mentioned it. Even the major newspapers gave the events coverage. As just another event happening in the city. No big deal. Now suddenly the event might "threaten public order" some more. Come on la Mr. Deputy IGP give us ordinary Malaysians some credit la. We're not as gullible as your political masters think us to be la. And please try not to end every press statement by kicking us Malaysians in the balls as a parting gift by saying things like, "We are not against the people's right to freedom of speech or human rights" and then ban this and ban that and shoot water cannon and tear gas all. That really make me damn 'too lan' (pissed off) with you la.
But Mr. Deputy IGP you're really not in the same league as your deputy boss la. It was reported in the Herald Sun when commenting on Sexualiti Merdeka, our deputy prime minister was quoted as saying "Any activity that does not benefit the majority of Malaysians should not be carried out. It's a waste of time, although they can say it's their own right and freedom. That's why to me, it (the festival) is totally unsuitable and I don't know it's benefits. I don't understand why they carry out such promotions. Is there any political agenda behind it?"
Political agenda???!!! Personally, I think they are running out of things to drag out in the ongoing sodomy trial.
Does not benefit the majority of Malaysians?
So how do these benefit the majority of Malaysians?
Bakun Dam, Sepang F1 race track, Putrajaya, Cyberjaya, tolled highways, the new Istana Negara.........the list is a long one but I am sure you get the drift.
Benefits? Come to think of it, if what Sexualiti Merdeka is "promoting" (your word, not mine) is so bad our Malaysia might be missing a few damn good TV cooking and children's shows, government functions emcees and maybe even a space tourist or two. Then how?
If you're a parent I am sure you are also a bit confused about what is going on with this English No English ding dong going on in our country. Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin says NO WAY, JOSE!!! The government's decision to teach Math and Science in BM stays. No tok! And then to kick you/us in the balls as his parting gift he adds, "...the majority of the people had accepted the desicion on the PPSMI reversal but as a democratic country, people were free to voice their views." NIAMAH!!!
And now the old man, Mahathir jumps in with his 2 sen and says that the prime minister has the power to overrule Muhyiddin' decision and that this could be done for the good of the country. What the fuck!!!
But of course, Najib and his wife are over in Mecca. Maybe trying to get some pointers from higher sources on how to get out of this giant fucked up mess.
But the most idiotic comment came from the expert at such, Bung Mokhtar. When commenting on the Sexualiti Merdeka ban he said (the event) "......promotes same sex relationship. It will damage the country's image. Events that support casual sex (which) will exacerbate baby dumping problems.
Eh!!! I think whether it is in English or BM this YB needs some serious Biology lessons.
