Insulting the poor egg

You couldn’t make this up, could you?

All I can say is that some people are easily offended. I think Teresa’s point was that the meals didn’t exactly constitute a balanced diet; neither were they finger-lickin’ good. Know what I mean?

Anyway, it’s the most read article on theSun website! You got to hand it to ’em… They do know how to keep us entertained… 🙂

But, more seriously, see Wong Kok Keong’s concern below.

Report lodged against Teresa Kok for insulting egg

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 24, 2008) : The Seputeh Umno Youth division lodged a police report today against Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, claiming she had insulted the Royal Malaysian Police and the egg, which is an essential food of the underprivileged.

The division’s deputy head Alawi Dahalin and several other members lodged the report at the Brickfields police station.

Alawi said he had heard Kok complain about the food she was given while detained under the ISA, at a press conference at the DAP headquarters in Petaling Jaya, shown on the night news on TV on Sept 20, a day after she was released from custody.

He said Kok had said the food she was served was “fit only for dogs”.

“By saying this, she had insulted the police and the poor. Eggs are an important food for low-income earners and the poor. As an elected representative of the people she should not have said that,” he said.

Wong Kok Keong detects a more worrying trend:

While this police report is incredibly idiotic, it actually is symptomatic of a disturbing trend emerging. Every group aligned with the government has now resorted to lodging police reports against others they disagree with or dislike by claiming the others as disturbing the peace, causing social instability, offending this or that religion,etc. And these groups are doing it, however idiotic their complaints may be, because they know the police will take them more seriously. When such a practice is becoming the preferred recourse and supported by the authorities instead of exchange of ideas and debates, it is a sign of a police state in the making.

As usual the UMNO … go … form and not substance. One would think it was the most important agenda today when the country is already in deep s***.

The Police should set up a special dept just to receive all these nonsensical reports and get on with their main task of keeping criminals at bay and citizens feeling safe!!

The government will propose a new law, “Anyone who insults the eggs, be they boiled, scrambled, fried, raw etc. will be detained under your security act (YSA) for one day or a week depending on how crazy the authorities get, in the event, the race aka Humpty Dumpty and he’s army of oval brethren started to climb over the accused wall and throw themselves at him/her”

…………

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHHH (fell from chair). Seriously though, something like this can happen in Bolehland.

You’ve got give credit to the UMNO … for successfully spinning the whole thing into egg insult. Obviously, it shows the kind of influence the mainstream media still have over the rakyat. They managed to turn the unjustified and inhumane detention of people from ISA into an issue about egg! Guys…stay focus. The issue here is ISA which is morally wrong, unjustified, strips a person of his/her diginity and inhumane. ISA needs to be abolished. Don’t let them spin it into something else. Don’t help them put Teresa into teh defensive by talking about the egg stuff. Keep the pressure… Read more »

hey, how come the Dalbinder Singh Gill does not have anything to say on this???

Shouldn’t he make some comments like our beloved PM eat eggs everyday. Teresa should not insult the eggs, else it will be like insulting the beloved PM. Or Teresa represents PR, and since all our nations eat eggs everyday, insulting the eggs is just like insulting the whole nations……So don’t support PR because of this….

The following extract from “The Malay Mail” online will perhaps balance off the opinions expressed thus far/above. Why do most Malaysians exhibit the “pack instinct”? When someone starts making a big fuss about the UMNO report, everyone “jumps on the bandwagon”. Please remember that the Malaysian standard of English has gone down so much that perhaps the UMNO guys misphrased what they meant, which could be any or all of the following.

THANK YOU Umno Youth Seputeh, and every other Umno member; for the comic relief in such trying times — please continue to put your big foot into your mouth. After all, it’s only the world that’s watching, and laughing with disbelief and incredulity.

You have also just proven (time and again, I might add) your level of intelligence…

Really, I can’t wait for the next episode of UMNO BOLEH!

I hope Teresa will apologise on the commnet on egg as ‘fit for dogs’ . I know there are lots of poor people, Most of the time , during lunch they just eat eggs and rice.

We shouldnt make fun of food. Food is given by the god.

Hope she will think about it and please in future do not make fun of food. Think of African people ..

UMNO Seputeh leaders really dont have ‘EGGS’ Nothing else to do.
Wonder who is instigating the Police reports?????
And the Police are so free to investigate all this…thats why the crime rate is increasing higher and higher.
The Police are just wasting time and Manpower( esp.The Special Branch) spying on the Rakyat and investigating this type of petty reports.
I will certainly delay in paying my taxes this year.!!!!!

How about a counter report for insulting the intelligence of Malaysians! Maybe this joker had eggs all the time back in school, no… not in the canteen but on the report cards, that’s why he is so in love with eggs.

Boiled eggs are now sacred Malaysian gourmet!

You see folks; with all the priviledges of education given,with the nation’s riches being spoonfed to them, with the Uni intakes prioritised to them by the government;

This is what we get. Minion minds. And the sad thing is, they’re happy about it.

Oh well, you know what they say; In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is always king.

Let us do whatever is right

To right all that are clearly wrong

The least we can do is to shed the light

To help the blind see and the weak be strong

Btw, the insulting the egg idea came from Muhammad Taib. Or at least, the first time i heard that.

Someone should study (certain of) these Malay NGOs. They should instead be called GRO. Government Relations Organisations
