So many critical mportant issues facing the nation – mounting debt levels, rampant corruption, Barang Naik, GST, TPPA, MH370, income inequality and rural poverty, rising crime, climate change – and these KL Umno Youth guys zero in on something like this.
By the way, did the band of 50 protesters give 10 days notice to the police for their protest as required under the Peaceful Assembly Act? (Not that this act is very democractic.)
Remember, the Pakatan guys were hauled to court for their Black 505 rallies for giving insufficient notice (though the courts later threw out their convictions upon appeal. But the government is appealing, I believe?)
While we support the right to peaceful assembly, what does the law say about rowdy behaviour and threats to burn down a building?
Why are these guys trying to ratchet up the stakes? So that people get diverted from the real issues facing the country?
Are they raging against the dim future for the Old Politics of race and religion whereas many Malaysians are moving forward and embracing New (issue-based) Politics that cuts across communal boundaries?
Maybe they don’t realise they are actually putting off a lot of sober-minded Malaysians.
