Umno/BN journalism reached new “heights” when lies become truths and fiction transmuted into fact

Malaysian journalism in Umno/BN country has reached new international “heights” where lies become truths and fiction transmuted into fact.

The Umno-owned daily Utusan Malaysia gave an illustration of this “transformation” of Malaysian journalism yesterday when its official commentary “Bisik-Bisik” by Awang Selamat, which is the pseudonym of the Umno-Utusan propaganda/psy war command centre, launched another attack on the DAP for its response to the Registrar of Societies asking for reasons for the RoS’ decision to direct the holding of DAP Central Executive Committee (CEC) re-elections.

Awang Selamat commented:”Awang teringat desakan orang politik termasuk bekas orang DAP sendiri yang mahukan DAP mengadakan semula pemilihan CEC ekoran dakwaam berlaku penyelewengan dan manipulasi undi membabitkan 547 perwakilan.”

The lie of 547 phantom delegates at the Penang DAP Congress in Penang last December, with the even more ludicrous allegation that all the 547 ‘phantom’ DAP delegates came from Penang, is one of the despicable falsehoods concocted and conjured up by the Umno/BN psy-war journalists when there is no shred of evidence whatsoever, but which Umno/BN propagandists hope can be accepted as fact by gullible Malaysians by implementing the Goebble doctrine that if a lie is repeated a thousand times, it could become a fact.

DAP and Malaysians are entitled to know whether the lie about the so-called ‘547 phantom DAP delegates’ at the DAP Congress in Penang last December is one of the reasons why the Registrar of Societies Director-General has issued the directive to the DAP to hold CEC re-elections, and if not, what are the reasons for the RoS’ decision.

DAP is prepared to hold CEC re-elections if the RoS Director-General can give reasonable and acceptable reasons, but not based on the lies and falsehoods concocted by the Umno/BN Goebbels Psy-war Squad, especially its chapter in Utusan Malaysia.

    If DAP has valid grounds, sue both ROS and Utusan.

    The real shock is that despite new heights that they have achieved in lies and fiction, the quality of their work does not match those of their leader Mahathir.. Mahathir is STILL a class above in terms of fabrication, twisting of the facts and submerging them into the putrid cesspool of their politics.

    Utusan can take a fact like Tunku support for MCA from the start and appear as if not only did not but support Mahathir which he did not forgive at his deathbed? Can Utusan match that kind of perversion even after all these years and self-mutilation to reach where they are now?

    We are comforted that even in their vileness they fall short…

    What do you expect? Since the 2013 GE, DAP has become the biggest and most successful component party in the opposition front. You have become their biggest and easiest target to erode PR and chip away the urban voters advantage in the next GE. So they will attack you with all resources and with all means; they will pin all blame whether justified or unjustified, truth or lies on you. they will make you look like enemies of Islam, the malays, the laws, the police, etc.

    They have already embarked on a very successful strategy of dividing Malaysians along religion making you appear as against Islam with the objective of gaining the urban malays support. Even PAS and PKR have been sucked into their game. They have been keeping very quiet or even supportive so far where religion is concerned. While they remained quiet, UMNO will slowly chip away PR’s urban malay support. If they opened their mouth, they will be accused of being the stooge of DAP. This is a very powerful chess move which ensure the fall of PR and their prolonging of UMNO political survival. DAP alone has no or little defence in the onslaught of UMNO using the 3 Rs – Religion, Royalty and Race.

    BN has deep pockets, all the MSM, the judiciary, police and the Governmental Authorities under their control. DAP had better sit down with PAS and PKR to come up with a counter strategy against the 3 Rs instead of bemoaning DAP is unfairly accused.

    When challenged, their strategy is default to anti Malay, anti Islam and anti royal.

    Political survival and influence is not about good, accountable and responsible leadership and government… is all about the lucrative corrupt deals to enrich a selected few.

    Did they get their information from their sources in the “Red Bean Army” ?

    How can you expect a newspaper which has lost several libel suits and which ran an extremely seditious headline after the GE to have any credibility? How many delegates did DAP Penang send to the DAP Congress? 547 ‘phantom’ delegates would make up 30% of the total number of delegates to the Congress. Only people with an extremely low IQ would believe in such lies.

    How can ROS take figures published in a newspaper to be official data without first verifying where the newspaper got the data from?

    Well, they can at least claim they are better than Muhiyiddin..After 2/3 days of not saying anything about the dog video, now he says he did not say non-Muslim which is simply IMPOSSIBLE.because there were two parts to it – one about non-Muslim insulting Islam and the other about Muslim NOT insulting non-Muslim which was also not true..

    There is comfort in their vileness, even their great leader will fall flat on their face on their own – Facebook’s certification of his hate words is only the beginning.. The fundamental flaw in their reasoning is that negative campaigning is NOT a bottomless pit, and turn on them eventually..
