Ban, Band, Bandits.


Kuala Lumpur PAS Youth Chief, one Kamarulzaman Mohamad alleged that Avril Lavinge’s scheduled concert on August 29th is an insult to the ‘Merdeka freedom fighters’. Not too long ago, the same Pas group played a crucial role in the eventual cancellation of a concert by Indonesian dangdut sensation Inul Daratista from performing in Kuala Lumpur.



Ban, Band, Bandits


Much has happened over the last 24 hours.

The Beijing Olympics opened to a literally explosive start with 10,500 athletes from 204 nations participating in 302 events in 28 sports over the next 16 days.

The price of crude oil as at 9:51 AM EDT, 2008.08.09 hovered at USD 115.15 per barrel compared to its previous all time high at USD 147.27 on July 11, 2008.

A forum on the legal issues in conversion to Islam was stopped short for fear that a gang of 300 protesters from GPMS, PAS and Perkida would turn rowdy. Members of the organizing committee were jeered with taunts of “babi”, “pengkhianat” and “balik China” as they were exiting the venue of the forum.
Back at the Olympic Games, an American man was killed and a lady injured when the assailant, a Chinese citizen stabbed the victims while they were attending the games. The assailant later leaped to his death.
After their apparent success in denying the process of democracy and freedom of speech and religious rights, PAS has quickly moved on to their next item on their to-do list of anti-West agendas.

Kuala Lumpur PAS Youth Chief, one Kamarulzaman Mohamad alleged that Avril Lavinge’s scheduled concert on August 29th is an insult to the ‘Merdeka freedom fighters’.

At the centre of all this is a deeply entrenched and hopelessly blind opposition to anything Western and white.

Indeed, many western countries are pretty screwed up by what people deem as the decay of moral values in their society. Incredulous same-sex marriages, recalcitrant gay church leaders, legalized marijuana use are no longer news in the western continents. The list goes on, from the absurd to the downright unthinkable.
One thing the Western community is definitely not doing is inundating themselves with drunken hatred.

And that is exactly why countries like Australia, Britian and the US of A are making progress while Malaysia is regressing.

The westerners do not waste time observing and protesting the unconventional attire of veiled Muslim ladies sauntering freely along their streets. They spend hours and weeks and years understanding and researching the new angiogenesis inhibitors cancer drugs and giving them names like bevacizumab and ranibizumab.

The white people do not squander their God-given limbs yielding placards and wielding keris to taunt diligent immigrants flourishing in their land. They train tirelessly and rigorously on the tracks and on the filed and in the pool, coupling scientific principles into sports and create world records in swimming and athletics through the likes of Micheal Phelps and Tyson Gay.

The gwailos know better than to riot and run amok over never-ending, never resolving issues like religion and culture and Middle East politics. They gather opposing parties with contending views and produce movies like Munich and Syriana and make handsome profits out of them which they use later to make more of such lucrative projects.

The mat sallehs comprehend that heterogenecity and pluralism is inevitable in an ever shrinking world that leaves little room for a false sense of racial supremacy and religious domination. For this reason, Asians in the entertainment industry like John Cho, Kal Penn and Russell Peters are having a field day inflicting wicked humor on white people and dismissing racial stereotyping at the same time.
Back in Malaysia, the PAS politicians are still preaching about protecting our local people from the evils of the West.

Epidemiological common sense assumes that a substantial number of these PAS loudmouths are currently on some form of antihypertensive and antidiabetic treatment. These PAS fanatics are beneficiaries of the Western community and the latter’s endless quest for safer drugs and novel treatments.
Malaysians need not thank the West and kiss their feet. At the same time, Malaysians and in particular Malays shouldn’t be so hypocritical and self-righteous too.
After all, our nation is pretty screwed up too.

Eh, since when are you into world market watch? if the crude oil price is actually decreasing, why do we need our subsidy cut? will i ever live to see the day when Malaysians no longer live in narrow-mindedness? it's ok. i don't think God intends for me to live that long....

POTS, what do u think of the recent UiTM issue? seriously, if education and religion fail to teach us to be fair to all, regardless of race and religion, then they are jz another failure?

There are some truths in what u have said. But to say that the westerners do not protest against veils etc. is like a blanket rule that is untrue. It's almost as if you are placing them on a podium. The westerners restrict others by placing rules and ensuring red tapes are in place for those they do not like or favour. Some produce movies that provoke hate, and many create McMedicine of the medical world so that they can be the one in power. Simply walk the streets of the Western world, and experience the life of an immigrant there - not all are sweet.

There are protests in Malaysia. There are also protests in the western world. Probably of another note or song maybe. Probably trivial in your eyes.

in a way, not getting in UiTM might not be a bad news. think of the standards... but again, how about the stds in other local non-fully-bumiputra unis? as long as quota system without meritocracy, no hope.
