What has Rosmah’s weight got to do with bajungu?

One of the public campaigns held in conjunction with our Merdeka celebrations is The J-Star‘s Voices of Moderation.

The paper makes a pledge “to be at the forefront to nurture the resounding triumph of moderation and reason over extremism and bigotry”.

But you have to ask yourself if the EvangeliSTAR is truly promoting “reason” as claimed by its CEO Wong Chun Wai – watch his Moderation promo clip on SwitchUp.tv below.

0:17 – Wong Chun Wai on ‘Bold Views, Brave Ideas':

“There is this sense of uneasiness that Malaysia is not what it used to be anymore. In fact, most Malaysians feel that the voices of racial and religious bigots are getting louder. They seems (sic) to have hijacked Malaysia, the Malaysia that we know away, from us.”

0:35 – Wong Chun Wai:

“And most Malaysians are by nature rational, moderate people and its time that we all stand up together and says (sic), ‘No! Malaysia is our country and it does not belong to the racist, it does not belong to the bigots and it definitely do (sic) not belong to those who want to take Malaysia away from us’.

“We must all stand up. The voices of moderation must be louder than those who want to make Malaysia different and dangerously different from what we have.”

Billboard message above:

“Stand up against religious and racial bigots, that’s the only way to keep the country moderate.” – Wong Chun Wai, The Star CEO

Chun Wai had declared that his paper is committed to battling the bigots and extremists (who in the EvangeliSTAR‘s opinion) have unfortunately gained a louder voice and bigger space to spew their racism.

J-Star editors obsessed with racist, divisive “ignoramuses”

The J-Star in its earlier Aug 17th editorial headlined ‘Rekindle the spirit of unity‘ had scolded “the hate-spewing, divisive, race-obsessed ignoramuses” for doing “a lot of damage … to the fabric of our society”.

Then in another editorial yesterday (Aug 31) titled ‘Let’s keep the Spirit of 57 alive‘, the paper once again recycled the exact same phrase – “the hate-spewing, divisive, race-obsessed ignoramuses” – to refer to its target groups. These hate groups are the politicians, NGOs and individuals whom the J-Star editorial voice accuses of tearing our multiracial society apart.

It’s beginning to appear, however, that it is really the J-Star editors themselves who are “obsessive”.

Just imagine! Here we have the lidah pengarang of the country’s largest circulation English paper obsessively slapping the label “ignoramus” on one particular segment of the population.

Not that this is at all surprising. Previously its then group editor June Wong alluded to pro-establishment rural voters as stupid for keeping a bad government in power.

J-Star pushes social media to drown out the extremists

The J- Star has been actively calling upon social media users to “be part of the conversation” @ #moderateMY.

Invoking the Spirit of ’57, the MCA paper’s I Am Malaysia campaign is attempting to galvanize “the silent majority” to “drown out the extremists and put them in their place”.

Yesterday in an article titled ‘Spirit of 1957 is alive‘, The J-Star interviewed 27-year-old Azira Aziz for her views of how we are today “more divisive” (that word again!) because we focus on “sectarian issues and rights” instead of looking at the big picture.

In fact, Azira was not interviewed once but twice by The J-Star for the paper’s Merdeka Day specials. We can see their modus operandi nowthe same ‘old’ tired Pakatan faces are being repetitively shoved to the centrestage. Or in other words, the EvangeliSTAR is artificially manufacturing its selected favoured people as media personalities.

Azira also featured on Aug 31 in another separate J-Star article titled ‘Re-igniting love for the land‘ where she was quoted as saying:

“No matter what we are, we are all Malaysians. We need to remember that Merdeka belongs to all Malaysians, irrespective of race and religion.”

The thing I wish to highlight about Azira is this – she belongs to the Loyar Burok group and she is “Anak Bangsa Malaysia”.

Promoting Anak Bangsa Malaysia

Like Azira, Adrian Lim (above) is a lawyer – he belongs to Lawyers for Liberty – as well as an “Anak Bangsa Malaysia”.

Like Azira too, Adrian is a social media user on Twitter who has been featured by the pro-opposition media. You can see Adrian’s tweet – below – appearing today in Malaysiakini‘s tweets live feed.

These young lawyers have a loud opinion on everything and the Bangsa Malaysia media like J-Star and Malaysiakini are giving them a high profile platform.

Malaysiakini Newsmakers Adrian

Dial_M_BlogAdrian Lim tweeted:

“I wonder if KJ has ever come across plans to enrol Rosmah in #FitMalaysia rather than talking cock on PPS like any other BN goons.”

Now if Malaysiakini cares to blogroll Adrian’s tweet, dragging Rosmah and her fitness level into the bajungu imbroglio, that is the portal’s prerogative as its owners are, after all, politically independent.

With The J-Star, however, it is a different matter as the media group is owned by the MCA yet allowed to continually stab BN in the back.

The BN’s downfall will not be caused by its opponent on the field. It is the enemy within that inflicts the most lethal damage. While the police are locking horns with the bajungu, Najib Razak is blissfully allowing Si Gunting to snip-snip-snip within the fold.

Not only that, his PMO is indirectly funding the Malaysian Firster promos!

Khalid kena bambu left, right and by the BN backstabbers too

DAP’s Ong Kian Ming, who is a columnist at The J-Star, wrote today about Khalid Ibrahim’s “desperate and increasing futile attempt to remain as the Mentri Besar of Selangor”.

Ong accused Khalid of accomplishing what the BN has thus far failed to do. The DAP Serdang evangelista MP asks Khalid whether he felt that it was really worth it breaking up Pakatan Rakyat. (more…)
