All this happening on the first day of Parliament yesterday was too much of a coincidence. We call on the people to reject gutter politics being practised by BN [17th February]
No one in Pakatan Rakyat is pressuring her to leave,” he said, adding that he was concerned with the “pattern of tarnishing PKR MPs’ reputations.” [17th February]
1. Right out of Umno's dirty tricks department
2. The political rape of Elizabeth Wong
Tian Chua launched into a tirade about how the media should leave Wong alone but despite this a few questions were posed to Hee. [18th February]
So who politicised Elizabeth Wong's case?
Pakatan Rakyat leaders left Eli Wong's case wide open for discussion and public inquiry - the rakyat, the media and politicians.
You can't just swing faeces into the court yard of Barisan Nasional on 17th February and tell the media to stop talking about it on 18th February.
When you open the floodgates, this is the consequence and Elizabeth Wong has been used as a tool of Pakatan Rakyat.
Instead of respecting Elizabeth Wong's privacy, leaders (Sivarasa, Anwar Ibrahim) and the alternative media (Malaysiakini) linked UMNO to this scandal INSTANTLY !
Of course there are two sides of a debate. So when journalists and Barisan Nasional tried to find out more about these allegations or rather - THE TRUTH - Tian Chua said "I think the media should leave her alone".
Malaysiakini continue to publicise readers' comments that said "This is an underhand tactic of Barisan Nasional" and write articles about Elizabeth Wong.
The mainstream media and bloggers faced the anger of Tian Chua and Pakatan Rakyat leaders.
We must shut up and leave Elizabeth Wong's case aside, while Malaysiakini and Pakatan Rakyat continue to openly word that "This is Barisan Nasional's dirty job".
This is a classic case of "baling batu, sembunyi tangan". More to come.
