    When you give freedom to people many of whom are not very responsible, they don’t use that freedom responsibly. They exploit it and couldn’t care less about correcting their wrongs even when asked to. Maybe also because they think you are liberal and would accept their intransigence.

    Freedom comes with responsibility. Singapore knew that even their people don’t appreciate that point much. So, they license the so-called news portals.

    Until and unless PM Najib does that to such “blogs” in this country – most of whom are on the Opposition stable – they will continue to ride rough shots time and again. Shoot like cowboys, below the belt and so on. Twist, spin and slant. Even plain inaccurate reporting to give bad impressions on the government.

    I really hope Najib will wise up to these kinds of nonsense by what have been referred to as news scrotals and start to license them like Singapore does.

    How to write like MalaysianInsider

    1) Assume, don’t check facts
    2) Post article
    3) Get money from political leader
    4) Forget about article. Got money, what
    5) Repeat step 1

      But these are the same people who worship the leaders in Singapore. Singapore will use the court to suppress and and everybody who dares utter or write anything that is critical of the government or its leaders – let alone when they are blatant lies and or allegations without a trace of truth.

    PM Press Office said PM did not say Sedition Act is needed to curb terrorism. Here is what says:

    Sedition Act needed to curb terror threat: Najib

    Mr Najib said the 1948 law was needed to maintain social order, especially with the advent of social media, where anyone is free to make public comments that could spark racial and religious strife.

    “We are concerned that such things could fuel emotional reactions. We care about racial and religious cohesion; that is why we will try to strengthen the Sedition Act,” he said in a speech to a gathering of the 208th Royal Malaysian Police force.

    Mr Najib also said the threat of terrorism made the Act a necessity.

    “As the saying goes in English, ‘prevention is better than cure’. I believe that it is better for us to have preventive detention laws than having someone commit an act of terror. If terrorism were to happen, many lives may be sacrificed,” Mr Najib said, adding there was no reason for the government to apologise for using the Sedition Act, despite domestic and international criticism.”

    Did the base their report on what the Malaysian Insider say?

    The generally pro-Establishment TheStaronline published only a short 3 paragraph report on it, mentioning only crime reduction, not mentioning the Sedition Act is needed to curb terrorism or the Sedition Act is needed to curb terror threat.

    The pro-Opposition Malaymailonline uses the heading “Sedition law still needed to keep peace, PM says”, not mentioning terrorism or terror threat.

    Reports by other mainstream media organizations are not traceable as of now. Anyone coming across any that states Najib mentioning the link between the Sedition Act and terrorism or terror threat is welcome to chip in comments here.

    Of course lah the news scrotals will twist, spin and slant. They are owned by Anwarul Al Juburi’s pal, aren’t they? Out to embarass and propaganda against Najib and the gomen.

    Meanwhile, Malaymailonline reports “IGP denies bias in sedition arrests”. He said, “The problem is only that group is causing trouble. That’s why it looks as though I only take action against them.” True. We all know which group he is referring to.

    Support you fully, IGP. My heart warms up every time I read news about Sedition Act arrests and charges. Must not allow them to become emboldened and flagrant.

    • DAP Dumb says:

      Yes, it’s also “that group is causing trouble” in Sarawak.

      News report of

      Sarawak group holds hunger strike to protest Sedition Act.

      Opposing the amendment that includes criminalizing calls for secession of Sabah and Sarawak. Headed by Pujut assemblyman Fong Pau Teck. Cina Bukit pendatang DAP trying to get power to rule and exploit the Orang Asal there.

      Just five miserable souls on the street. Led by the trouble maker Fong.

  5. Anonymous says:

    Cina Bukit masquerading as a Malay Zairil Khir Johari said hudud was not on the DAP agenda to get rid of PAS what more to topple PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang.

    Forked tongue. Cina Bukit. Cakap tak serupa bikin.

  6. Anonymous says:

    Zairil said, “We are not trying to influence anybody. The DAP central executive committee (CEC) unanimously agreed that Pakatan Rakyat component parties must uphold the spirit of cooperation based on trust and mutual respect among leaders.”

    Blardi. It’s Tolong Lim who started not trusting and not respecting Hadi.

  7. Koyak says:

    Now even Aspan Alias appears to be whacking DAP. Wasn’t he supposed to be joining DAP at the same time as that Mongkol Arif Sabri bloke before?

    He now asked, “Has DAP abandoned its belief in federalism? .. DAP is caught in a bind. It opposes hudud but it needs PAS and it cannot deny Kelantan’s sovereign right to enact its own laws,” he said.

    “DAP’s decision is not only presumptuous but also deceitful and prickly since it was not Hadi, but PAS, that joined this loose coalition of opposition parties before the 2008 general election. DAP cannot discharge Hadi alone. The party he leads must go together with him.”

    Interesting that Aspan says “DAP knows that its destiny is truly determined by PAS. It needs Malay support through PAS as it tries had to obliterate its image as a Chinese chauvinist party.” But PAS has been humiliated already. The bridge has definitely been broken. I’d like to see DAP trying to cross that bridge and fall into the ravine as deep as the Grand Canyon of the US. Kasi koyak sama dia.

    • a says:

      Does DAP believe in anything? Some say they are anarchists. If so, they just be ultra kiasu. They twist and spin a lot in the Rocket. It never goes up, only a bit sideways.

  8. Koyak says:

    Hahaha, I like Aspan’s words, “Now that the PAS government in Kelantan has shown that it doesn’t give a hoot to what its Pakatan partners think, DAP is going on as if the world is going to end.”

    Good words Aspan uses – The decision to sever ties with Hadi implies that it wants PAS to oust him from his position as president of the party. The artifice employed is nothing short of crude and displays a complete absence of decorum.

    This one is clearly referring to DAP – Some people forget that Pakatan is a loose coalition with no binding agreement between the three coalition members. Any of the members can leave the coalition at any time. No party can sack another in an organisation that is not officially registered.

    • a says:

      PAS not give a hoot what Pakatan partners think – Now PKR not saying much about Hudud. Busy wanting IGP out. Coz many PKR people got arrested and charged . Including Nurul Izzah.

  9. Koyak says:

    Finally, I must say I’m like Aspan – I am not for hudud, but I acknowledge the Kelantan Government’s right to legislate any law it wants to. One must remember that Malaysia, like the United States, is a federation and the Federal Government derives its sovereignty from the sovereignty of the member states.

    The DAP and everyone else will have to resign themselves to the fact that we are not ruled by a unitary government. Safe to assume that if Aspan had joined DAP, his heart no longer there?

    Pssst, I’m not for Hudud but just want to whack DAP and in the process may appear to be supporting PAS. Hypocrite? No. Main burit. DAP’s burit. Remember, that is not the prerogative only of Anwarul Al Juburi.

    • Nuyar says:

      Lim Kit Siang says should start a new coalition. Clearly in his mind PAS is out. PR no longer jalan.

      He names it “Save Malaysia” coalition. I think there should be a “Throw out DAP” coalition.

  10. Putar Alam says:

    How to expect the so-called news portals not to twist and spin when the Bar Council also does it. Kupla worak punya kes.

    The new Bar Council president quotes former PM Tun Hussein Onn saying ‘The Bar has a duty to speak up on matters of public affecting citizens’ rights and comment on legislation affecting such rights.’ Now the Bar president wants the Sedition Act repealed. Not even asking for amendments.

    Yet he himself also wrote Tun Hussein’s words, “In doing so, the Bar must be constructive and must conduct itself with decorum.” What’s constructive in wanting the Sedition Act repealed? It’s destructive. It’s harming the interests of the majority of the Malaysian public. Interests in the preservation of peace and order.

    Removing the Sedition Act will lead to all hell breaking loose. For example, questioning the sensitive Articles of the Constitution that represent the rights and interests of the Malays (that are protected by the Act) will lead to counter-questioning the citizenship right of the non-Malays that was agreed to by the Malays. There will instead be chaos and disorder. The Bar Council President is twisting and spinning Tun Hussein’s words.

    What’s decorum in planning (as members of the committee) and joining illegal Bersih demonstrations without Police permit before the Peaceful Assembly Act came into force? It’s pure, outright offensive criminal behaviour. Shame on them. The public should not believe what the Bar Council says.

    • Koyak says:

      Very good points, Sir. Will talk to you all again another time. Got to go now.

    • Didi says:

      So many people think Bar Council being political. Pro-Opposition. Former President Ambiga and Bersih carried Anwarul Al Juburi’s political issues very clear. The same with the others.

  11. DAP Dumb says:

    This is a good statement by the IGP. It’s very true – mostly dumbies like Tian Chua who make seditious statements –

    PR leaders causing trouble via seditious tweets, says IGP

    Khalid Abu Bakar defends his actions against the opposition saying BN leaders do not post tweets that warrant their arrest.

    KUALA LUMPUR: It is only the Opposition leaders who are posting seditious tweets and hence the action against …

      Another one – from DAP – got summoned by the Police, hopefully will be ch

      Cops summon Klang MP for comment made in Roketkini article

      KUALA LUMPUR: Klang MP Charles Santiago was summoned for questioning by police today for allegedly referring to the police as a “lackey of Umno” in an article published in a DAP news portal on Tuesday.

    A “news portal” yesterday published a report linking the Conference of Rulers to the hudud law in Kelantan, and it went viral on the Internet. Bernama did not name it. Malaysian Insider also?

    Good that the Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal issued a statement saying “The Conference of Rulers has never discussed the matter at its meetings. And “The office (of the Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal) did not issue a press statement dated March 25 on the matter.”

    More than that, the Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal today lodged a police report denying any statement had been issued.

    I expect the editor of the “news portal” concerned will be arrested, investigated, charged and hope the bugger will be imprisoned.

  13. It’s truly very complicated in this active life to listen news on Television, therefore I simply use internet for that purpose, and take the most recent

  14. Your wedding day is one of the major milestones of your life.
    The Beginning Sentence is Important: The first sentence of
    your copy, after your main headline, is really important.
    There are many, many wedding days that end up exactly like that, but the exact opposite is also known to happen.

  15. Very rapidly this web site will be famous amid all
    blog viewers, due to it’s nice content

  16. I got this web site from my pal who shared with me about this website and at the moment
    this time I am browsing this web site and reading
    very informative articles or reviews at this place.

  17. Excellent pieces. Keep posting such kind of information on your site.
    Im really impressed by it.
    Hi there, You’ve done a great job. I’ll certainly digg it and for
    my part recommend to my friends. I am confident they will be benefited from this

  18. I read this post completely about the resemblance of
    most recent and previous technologies, it’s amazing article.

  19. Very good info. Lucky me I found your blog by chance (stumbleupon).
    I have saved as a favorite for later!

    I think that what you composed was very reasonable.
    But, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier post title?
    I am not saying your content isn’t good., but what if you added something
    that makes people want more? I mean Malaysian Insider continue to Spin and Lie!

    Dont go overboard! | Stop The Lies is kinda boring. You might
    peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write post
    titles to grab people to click. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve written. In my
    opinion, it could make your posts a little bit
    more interesting.

  21. Martin says:

    great points altogether, you simply received a new
    reader. What might you recommend about your submit
    that you simply made some days in the past? Any certain?
