Bye bye Malaysia Today, Malaysiakini & sopo bloggers?

As it stands, Raja Petra's Malaysia Today site will soon be blocked (fer sedition & slander) & rumours abound that Malaysiakini will soon follow suit. Bloggers (ie you & me) beware. Big brother is most definitely watching you & finger placed precariously over the 'DELETE' button.

The three most famous alphabets in Malaysian vocabulary - 'I', 'S' & 'A' - has begun making the rounds. That most effective of silencing tools - FEAR - has been utilised by Barisan Najis to mute the grumblings of the masses.

In light of all these developments, me is still faced by serious fooking stubbornness from some quarters over me simple & humble request that they visit the Post Office to REGISTER as a voter. Again, me is NOT asking you to fly flags, blog, send emails or take to the fooking streets in protest.

Just that when you are next at yer Post Office to pay yer utility bills, you fooking hand yer IC over to register as a voter. Apathy at the current economic crisis as well as the clamping down of FREE SPEECH & other civil liberties should spur you as a concerned citizen into REGISTERING.

ME knows me has offended, irritated & quite simply rubbed more than a few people the wrong way with me constant reminders. But that is a price me is willing to pay fer what is at stake far outweighs any unpopularity issues.

This excerpt was taken from the Canberra Times:
The only political game Malaysia now, at least among Umno, is to stop Anwar. The security apparatus will also be used against Anwar's allies.

Several leaders in Anwar's parties have been arrested for corruption, and bloggers who are sympathetic to Anwar are being sued for defamation and publishing false reports on the Internet.

The Government is also expected to pass laws that restrict political chatter on the Internet, and crack down harder on civil society groups.

The BN is still a powerful political machine and when it is threatened, it moves back to its authoritarian mode. There is every reason to believe that there will be mass arrests under the Internal Security Act to stop Anwar from becoming prime minister.

There are too many vested interests that will stop at nothing to make sure that their corruption and past misdeeds are not exposed by Anwar's new administration.

They have every reason to fear the consequences of an Anwar ascendancy. When Anwar's party took power in several states after the March general election, they exposed shady land deals and government contracts worth millions.

A Morgan Stanley report published a few years ago says that corruption has cost Malaysia the equivalent of more than US$110 billion (RM360 billion) in the past 30 years.

The NEP was promulgated about 30 years ago and it was only after the NEP came into being that ''money politics'' became synonymous with Umno.

If Anwar eventually becomes prime minister, it will be one of Asia's most remarkable political comeback tales.


ps: Look forward to yer comments as usual on this very REAL threat to OUR civil liberties. To the unregistered citizen, do you still wanna do NOTHING?

pps: Anecdote - Mrs Nanda666 (who is of Irish descent, not that it matters) recently told off an UNREGISTERED person (Mr Banker with two masters degrees) by stating that in many places blood has been shed fer that simple right to universal suffrage. South Africa & apartheid. China & Tianamen Square. "Yet you seem so unappreciative of this right that you are willing to forgo it," she admonished Mr Wanker , er, sorry, Mr Banker. Needless to say Mrs Nanda is fooking horrified & disgusted by this display of typical Malaysian apathy.

Hmmm....
Who's next...?

Dear FFS readers and contributors...be very careful...
heheheh...
Apus Maximus is coming..

Achilles said...

AD: I guess we knew this would happen once DSAI wins. Last time it was road blocks to cause traffic jams... this time its all about clamping down and scaring people by showing off how powerful they can be when they want to be.

I am still surprised the sodomy charge hasn't suddenly resurfaced and they haven't carted DSAI away to jail. What they waiting for?

Kopite78 said...

It seems that you do not need much intelligence to get 2 masters degrees. What I cannot understand is what is the problem with registering as a voter?

Kopite78 said...

Malaysia Today's mirror site is

http://mt.harapanmalaysia.com/2008/

anfield devotee said...

Kopite78: Thanx fer the link! The sites seem to be in running order fer now. But fer how long?

And will the new laws mean we canna even utter barisan in vain?

anfield devotee said...

premo sent this sms: Forum - What's next after Permatang Pauh? S'gor Chinese Assembly Hall 8pm Fri 29Aug.

Speakers include Steven Gan (MalaysiaKIni), Dr Kumar (MP Sg Siput), Hishamuddin Rais.

theALBERTUS said...

The one thing I can say about IT is that no matter how much you try to block, there is always a loophole.

If the mirror site cannot at http://mt.harapanmalaysia.com/2008/

you can try using this site:
http://202.75.62.114/

They can take shut down all sites but they can never take away our freedom. Such is the irony when liberal online daily is blocked but a conservative hardline daily often viewed as racist is still circulating.

I wonder what would happen to irony if DSAI comes into power. Makes you wonder doesn't it?

VIVA LIBERTE!

nanda666 said...

Kopite78: I can think of the following reasons these "smart" guys are not registering:

1. Seen as followers now. (Not the leaders they wanna be!!)
2. Need to know why they are registering means they have to read political stuff. (Some wanna read the Edge, FHM and footsie mags only.)
3. Lamest reason: Their one vote won't make a difference.
4. 2nd Lamest reason: They don't like talking politics. (I guess it must sound "french" since point 2 applies??)

Achilles said...

Nanda: You forgot to add one more thing for point 2, they might like reading this magazine called Fitness Malaysia or surfing the website www.fitnessmalaysia.com.my

AD: Sorry to use yer blog for free advertising space. since its become so popular of late, just couldn't resist-lah. hahahaaa

nanda666 said...

hehehe!! See how cronism starts...

anfield devotee said...

achilles: hee hee . . . No have to set the ACA on yer arse!

Nanda: being quite kind lar you sir with such a short list. Add:
1) Malaysia is a temporary residence only before migrating to Aus or Canada.

2) There's no happy hour at the Post Office.

3) Being registered is an affron to their INDEPENDENT identity ie the 'Rebel without a muthafooking cause identity lar'

4) Takut kena ISA because his/her name is on elctoral register

5) Best one yet . . . Too busy.

akuani said...

Are we afraid to stand up for what we believe in? Can the fooking corrupted powers take away the voice of the unhappy disgruntled people?

As Mrs Nanda666 pointed to via proxy AD, people have stood up for what they believed elsewhere, why not us now??

If we truly believe that this change is what we want, then we must stand up together against the oppressors.

AD: I think you know if you were hauled off or FFS was shut off, I'd be screaming bloody hell for yer and request the cell next to ya :))

anfield devotee said...

akuani: Thanx aunty . . . Mucho appreciated yer gesture of solidarity. Like me said, me knew yer heart is in the right place.

As always, differing opinions are welcome here but be prepared fer a shouting to from the various FFS regulars. Hee hee

But me still canna comprehend why is it so fooking difficult fer these fookers to just hand their IC over when they are paying their bills at the Post Office?

Seriously fooking burns me that such a simple request is met with such resistance by supposedly educated world-view friends of mine.

Tinesh said...

Someone's gotta do it, why not you? Gotta love Guiness slogans man.. lol

Btw, if we all end up in Kamunting, we try negotiating for cells next to each other la.

akuani said...

AD perhaps in apathy, they think they make a difference :))

Plus remember SPR takes 3 months to update the information ... so if you register now, you'll only be in the Dec electoral roll ya ... so everyone keeps putting it off and never getting around to it.

My advice - GO directly to the SPR offices around the nation - it's usually fooking dead in there you can hear a fart in the corner *kih kih kih* and all it takes is 10mins you're out - no pain trust me :))

Also remember they ikut IC - so if your IC says Kapit, Sarawak, and you live in Arau Perlis - you're in for a bit of a shit stir getting home to vote, which really may have no meaning to you since you aren't in Kapit which incidently is one of the most exciting trips into Sarawak by 8 hours boat in the Rejang or something to that effect now I forget :))

For some reason when I registered way back in 98 they took my Bkt Antarabangsa add - hence me casting my vote 2x there ... that may also be the other deterrent to bother registering ...

I dunno AD ... so many excuses, to some of us it's like WTF ya it's about your country and your future too ... to some it's like whatever BN will win - maybe there's some shaking in the lethargy now with GE12 making waves the way it did - but general laziness is the most reason they fooking don't register :))

At least auntie ani thinks so :)) all you and I can do is keep at it telling people it's a right they should not waste or spoil!

anfield devotee said...

akuani: Haiyo, pegi cari SPR office when these fookers won't even go to the Post Office?

Anyway, if me is not mistaken, during "off peak" season, it only takes two months fer yer name to appear.

And yes, the laziness & apathy is absolutely appalling. Especially when news everywhere is indicating that BN might just be toppled over.

Tinesh: Am trying me best to get as many people to register. Hence me campaign. Any luck on yer side?

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

this proves they only care to hear what's music to their fucking ears. if all online news will be banned, does this apply to agendadaily as well? how about toyo's, rustam's and sabery's?

JonW said...

Even after you're registered, doesn't the electoral roll required to be gazzetted or something like that? Would it be in time for snap elections?

Tinesh said...

Duno la dude, I spoke to a few flers..One said yea, the others said see first. Most of em are transferring soon to overseas, so I understand la.

Woits! said...

it's time to unite! race doesn't exist except in your head. only malaysians stupid enough still believe in it... we've been played by politicians long enough! LET THE PEOPLE RISE! All throw your support behind Raja Petra or any other person who believes in non-partisanship. If you can give your vote to BN and keep them in power... you can also TAKE IT AWAY. Sept 16 can happen TOMORROW... if the people say it is so! we determine our politicians and policies. If not, we flood the state offices with faxes in protest! Jam their fax machines because they broke their promise to the people. No more lies...

Achilles said...

AD: If these fooks would have on line registration, i am sure we would get a whole lot more people to register. but perhaps, that is what they don't want.

Anyway, me following 2 colleagues to post office later to get em registered.

Achilles said...

AD: IF you still had b-walk, you could easily get more people to register. One free jug once you register. enough incentive for even the most stubborn people. hehehe

but anyway, me is doing me part by sharing this vital piece of info. for those who are too busy to visit the Post Office during office hours, you can visit extended hours Post Offices at a few key places. to find out where and the extended hours, just check out this link.

http://www.pos.com.my/V1/main2.asp?c=/v1/OurNetworks/Contacts.htm

Hope this helps get a few more people registered.

@dam said...

This BN government, or rather UMNO as all the others are like half dead fish on a desert land, is really unforgivable...

They are so bad that they don't even deserve some sympathy!...now I really hope Anwar to lead PR to take over the Federal Government regardless of my trust and confidence in him!

I can't see him or anyone else aside those from UMNO to perform worse than the government under Badawi!

Anba said...

Balaji:- if the aforementioned banker was one of my family member...sure he kena goreng kau kau...
coz i remember my auntie was practically forcing me to register as a voter when i turned 21...same goes to my brother...what to do with the voting center just behind me house ...we just simply couldn't ignore ...
It's funny to think that my auntie has just limited schooling and from india...atleast she knows the importance of voting and being a responsible citizen...
The one funny incident i still can forget how my brother constant persuasion and pestering of my auntie not to vote for the Dacing...
u see my late uncle told my auntie to always vote for The Dacing...
but me brother managed to change it to Rocket...hehehe...
Take hair i mean care bros....ciao...have a nice weekend everyone..

nanda666 said...

As I've said before..the moment you have registered, drop me an e mail with your full name & IC no. I'll get my "sources" to check and ensure you're on the list!!

Jon-C said...

Geeez! Look who's talkin' - our one time supremo of all censorship - Doc M has blasted the "blocking" of RPK's site. How ironic!

anfield devotee said...

achilles: Thanx fer the link & keep up the good work in getting people registered!

Tinesh: Pls note that even when you are overseas, you are entitled to vote at the Malaysian High Comm. YOu can then be part of the famous "postal votes"!

JOnW: Yes, it has to be gazzetted, hence the two month delay vefore yer name appears. And yes, there is still time. If Anwar can keep his Sep16 promise, me thinks patliament will be dissolved & SNAPS called in Oct/Nov. So if you know anyone yet to register, please carry out yer patriotic duty in convincing them the need to do so.

Kerp: You couldn't be more right. Am just so fooking disappointed by some of me so-called friends. Me is at a loss fer words as to why they are being so bloody minded about visiting the POst Office. Fooking hell.

woits: Hear ye, hear ye. But if you read the post you will see that me is facing some difficulty in getting educated, middle class arseholes to register.

Anba: Sorry la, Mr Banker's ignorance & apthy is seemigly limitless. Same can be said bout a few other mates of mine. Disgraceful. Like me said, dulu lain lar coz unseating Barisan Najis seemed like mission fooking impossible. Me admit, me is also a late voter. But such is the scenario today, why a person cannot be bohered to just visit the Post Office is quite beyond me. Inflation. Petrol hike. Corruption. etc & BN are shaking. Yet fooking arseholes like Mr Banker says "I just don't care" (seriously, me kids you not).

nanda666: Thanx fer the help. Still hoping you can convince that banker friend of yers to see the light. Me is ashamed to say this but virtually ALL the fookers who me has targeted are Indians. Seriously malu la. Already a minority with a small voice in this country, this fookers still canna be bothered to do something as simple as REGISTER @ Post Office. Cis!

JonC: DrM - Hypocrite No1 . . .

anfield devotee said...

nanda: Sorry, what me meant to say is that most of the fookers who canna be bothered or are resisiting me calls fer them to get registered are Indians. Gone overseas but still estate mentality . . . (*sigh*)
ps: Maybe you should ask yer wifey to join DAP or Keadlian . . . better yet PAS!!! Hee hee.

@dam: Correcto. Hard to fathom anyone doing worse than current adminsitration. But many BN suporters seem to think Najib gonna be the nation's saviour. Incredible.
