I share the same sentimen to as Fatimah’s reaction to Bernard’s lasting posting. The moment I saw that it gives the feeling that PR bloggers are in desparate situation with no new issues. I watch Anwar speeches and it confirms PR lack of substance in the Bagan Pinang election. Hence, why question, “Is that all that PR can offer”.

Fatimah Zuhri’s comment is by far the most mature and intelligent comment I’ve read on the subject thus far.

Tactics employed at ridiculing a segment of the population into submission is no different then firing racial threats at it. I cannot, for the life of me understand how many of these folks are blind to the fact that they have morphed into the very evil they fight to remove.

Good to hear Fatimah, Sid and No Hero, protecting a minority community. Such a shame we did not hear them singing the same tune during a certain cow-head protest protected by both PRDM and Hishamuddin.

I feel it is very convenient to target individual bloggers while keeping away from the stench emanating from certain candidates. Is this all Malay Mail and Star teach their journalists?

Well, being an ethnic Indian, and a Hindu at that; if folks want to run around with a head of a dead cow akin to a paganistic ritual, that honestly does not offend me or anyone else I know. Or are you insinuating Hindu’s should lash out at everyone that consumes beef as well? Or have you been indoctrinated that faith must be defended against threats of stupidity? Aren’t you part of the problem then? If you actually did your homework, you’d realize most Hindu’s weren’t affected by a bunch of jokers carrying a cow’s head. However, ridiculing a segment… Read more »
