Blogs nowadays have turned into a warzone. None are fence sitters and we can safely say there are two sides.
Next time when you read blogs, try reading the comments also.
The alternative side tends to sow the seeds of hatred, intimidation and seek only affirmation. When criticised, they rise like thugs against the critics.
In Barisan Nasional, I see problems like abuse of power and perhaps corruption.
No matter how endemic the corruption level is, it is still corruption and can be fought with proper laws and leadership.
After all, I feel that Barisan Nasional is still better than a party headed by a leader who was once jailed 6 years for corruption and with a pack who act like hooligans with blooming petals of hatred, intimidation and defamation.
It is undeniable that when someone blogs and criticises Pakatan Rakyat's policies, these bloggers will be called lapdogs, cronies, fools and all kinds of profanities and foul words that you can imagine.
A PIECE OF MY MIND has been at the receiving end of these for a long time.
If my comments are so hurtful to Pakatan's image till the supporters are so riled up and can only resort to hooliganism instead of intellectual arguments, then my comments must be true !
Spend some time at pro Pakatan websites. We can see that whatever these people write, the comments will be "That is true" and "You have my support on this".
Has it become a cronic disease among Pakatan supporters that they are now "Yes-Men" of their leaders and they subscribe to whatever their leaders or Pakatan bloggers say with full agreement ?
How ironic when I am called a lapdog but they tell their masters "Yes boss. You are right".
The trend these days is that whoever speaks against Pakatan leaders or policies, they are to be intimidated, ridiculed and name callings as part of the script.
If this continues in the free and least regulated blogopshere, one can imagine what will happen if Pakatan Rakyat leaders become our Federal Government and their supporters come out in droves daily to support them.

If we say the Police and the current Government leaders are abusing their powers and depriving Malaysians of their basic rights and freedom, can you imagine what Malaysia will become under Pakatan just by reading the comments posted by their supporters in blogs?
Will Malaysia evolve into a street mob State and will the essence of basic rights and freedom flourish under Pakatan Rakyat and the troops of supporters that they command ?
I am very worried about the future of Malaysia for one day if we allow this "bulldozing" mentality to govern our country, this mentality will be imparted in the minds of every Malaysian.
p/s Maybe 1Malaysia can offer free tutorials to Pakatan Rakyat on the 8 Values of 1 Malaysia
