UPDATED: Tony Yew has replied at his blog Can You See It? I like this bit where he said, “I guess its better that I answer them [Malaysiakini] through my blog so that I do not get misquoted.”
It’s really a sensible move — something we all (well, if you have a blog) can learn from Tony — especially for anyone contacted by the biased media with a predetermined agenda.
Chan Lilian has since battened down the hatches and refused to own up to the meaning of her tweet: : “i think all Christians shud march for all the persecution they had done to us and our Lord”.
- She denies that when she mentioned ‘they’ (i.e. the people who in her opinion persecuted Christians) she was referring to the government.
- She denies that when she said “should march”, she was referring to Bersih 2.0.
- She even denies that she used the word ‘march’ to mean ‘walk with’ or to be part of a rally. She claims ‘march’ has a Christian connotation which is different from its traditional English language definition or as how most would understand the word.
- Lilian denies she was ever “a Bersih advocator”, explaining that since she did not pin a yellow badge on her avatar,
- and she did not “repeatedly asked everyone to join” the gathering, therefore she is innocent of Tony’s Yew’s charge that she is inciting public sentiments.
Given her denial on all counts, how can people say that she is being harassed by police for supporting Bersih?
