That event was graced by Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi, the newly elected UMNO VP and also a Minister in the PM’s Department.
In that function, there were singers who dressed in what we can safely describe as “sexy attire”.
I believe the way they dress; you can see the same style of fashion in malls among youths and adults today. Please do not be come and tell me “Where got?”
If politics are to stoop so low to battle through morality and linking immorality of dress code to Barisan Nasional, I suggest Pakatan Rakyat leaders’ family members better cover up and be as holy as they can.
If pushed to the limits, I hope Pakatan Rakyat do not blame anyone if someone plays the political picture game by targeting Pakatan leaders and their family.
After all, if you started it, you must be ready to accept it. There is no need to go there, right?
I believe Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has been patient when the pictures of his family are circulated in blogs and emails.
I admire him for the fact that he is calm going through all these because he sees no reason to stoop so low and play that type of game.
Congratulations by the way, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak for being appointed the new Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Back to the story, many websites slammed the immorality of the singers and attempted to hint that BN is endorsing the negative values of Western cultures.
These blogs clearly are pro Pakatan Rakyat.
Approximately a month ago, surprisingly, it was these blogs who defended Elizabeth Wong.
I am in no position and it is actually harsh of me to attack the Eli Wong case. I disagree with her stepping down and I believe she should continue on.
But if Pakatan Rakyat’s camp wants to harp on immorality, then explain why is the morality of Eli Wong defended?
With regards to the Bukit Selambau election, former PKR ADUN V. Arumugam resigned from his seat via a black and white letter.
As an ADUN who took an Oath before the Sultan, he has yet to explain or at least have an audience with the Royal Household of Kedah.
Neither has he met the Menteri Besar of Kedah, as far as I know.
The impression created by Arumugam and Anwar Ibrahim at first was that someone powerful from Barisan Nasional had plans to threaten and “kidnap” Arumugam as well as his family.
Surprisingly, no one from BN’s camp did that although they had time since March 2008 to do so.
Actually, news were spreading like wildfire that Arumugam had extra marital affairs with a married woman although Arumugam himself is married.
After shying away from duties as an elected representative without offering any explanation to Bukit Selambau people, Parti Keadilan Rakyat wants a new candidate to be elected there again.
Now, as bloggers and reporters for alternative media, we should be responsible when we write.
Although we are not under any Regulations in Malaysia, we must implement self censorship.
Stop that kind of “you are immoral, I am a moral man” political board game. Politics is all about class, superiority, manifestos, policies and agenda.
Cheap shots like this will only be ridiculed. My advice to Pakatan Rakyat supporters is simple.
If you want to support Pakatan, support rationally. When you write, write with sense too.
Summing these up, we can say that this is the state of Malaysian culture and politics today, sadly.
