Burgers and butts incidents reflect on nation’s leaders

JD Lovrenciear | May 15, 2012

Do you laugh or do you lose sleep? Do you cry or do you spit venom?

Indeed the antics staged by the followers of their political patrons clearly indicate that the very party leadership of these stooges who are into burger protests and butt protests in front of the revered Bersih co-chair Ambiga Sreenevasan’s residence, are just as helpless and hopeless, while their followers degrade their reputations even further.

Instead of issuing a stern warning against BN sympathisers for rolling politics in the slime, they allow them to carry on their disgusting and uncouth antics in front of Bersih’s leader.

We forget that this is one lady who stands on the global dais of honour and dignity having being honoured by none other than the leading lady of the United States of America – the very nation that the prime minister of Malaysia is paddling into this season.

If the BN leadership had immediately acted decisively to curb such derogatory displays, they would have earned respect and kudos.

But no. That is not how BN sees things. It is gripped with fear. With no dignity and honour as its armour, it allows itself to be even further defaced by all these stooges who claim to be the defenders of BN and seeming nationhood.

There are so many creative and dignified ways and mannerisms to register disagreements.

But to sell burgers in front of a citizen and civil society acknowledged-leader who is a confessed vegetarian betrays all civic consciousness; to show your butts in front of her residence is most disgustingly indecent and improper especially if judged by Asian values.

These two acts clearly demonstrate how bankrupt we can get on the political railroad.

Wonder how all these would precipitate into in the eyes of the global citizens in so far as the national reputation of the country is concerned?

When Irene Fernandez states the atrocities committed against foreign nationals, we scream that she is disgracing the nation. But when you condone and indirectly promote such primate behaviour, and it gets viral on the global network, it is a non-issue?

Is this the kind of leadership that must be perpetually consecrated to lead this nation then? Citizens, what is your take please?

    I have always thought that the desperate kicks of a dying umno could be strong and very dangerous. How wrong I have been. Those umno dying kicks are actually hilarious.

    It is long way to go for Malaysia to achieve 2020, economically and apolitically. The leaders themselves are just immature and did not take issue seriously, they just do thing that are childish and very immature.

    Let see DBKL will issue pasar malam license to get that stupid stuff going on

    These arse holes have nothing better to do than to please their UMNO masters. The way the Armed Forces veterans did was a total disgrace to the whole Armed Force, the country and the whole world. This showed that instead of having brains in their heads, they have it in their bit fat stinking arses. How pathectic.

    Why should they?
    For all everyone knows, they could well be the organisers?
    But the issue of using army vets to disgrace and debase themselves public is over the limit.
    Way over the limit!
    Get the message to the serving armed forces personnel to let them know that the ruling coalition is debasing their retired members.
    And let them take it from there!

    I have a suspicion. They may not be former armed-forces personnel after all. I can’t imagine that disciplined men can behave like that. Not even from the ranks of the NCOs are they. This is a plot.

    If bersih can demonstrate where ever they want, surely they can protest where ever they want.

    The writer is selective reflecting unjustified biasness. The writers argument on Asian values to negate the freedom of expression is similar to UMNO’s argument isn’t it?

    Thus when i finish reading this write, I dont know whether to laugh or lose sleep? Or to cry or spit venom?
