Newbie on the blog Annie believes that:
“Backed by the numerous pro-Pakatan news portals and sympathetic publications such as Malaysiakini, Malaysian Insider, Free Malaysia Today, Malaysian Chronicles, Sinar Harian, Malay Mail, the Star etc, these pro-Pakatan bloggers and cybertroopers are indeed a powerful force.”
She observed that in contrast, BN bloggers appeared to be more of guerrilla outfits “employing a hit and run strategy”.

Other reports elsewhere have said that Lim Guan Eng has 20 Special Officers in his office.
But the ‘Bad news for the DAP is good news for the MCA is no news in The Star’ doesn’t want to dig into stuff like this.
Surely with their contacts (e.g. Koh Tsu Koon’s aides, as the Tan Sri had been Penang Chief Minister for umpteen years, would be in the know), this allegation about Guan Eng’s Men in Black is something that the paper can verify or dispel if it is willing to do just a little investigative reporting.
Spreading darkness across the land
The most powerful cybertroop of all
Speaking about the Pakatan bloggers who seem better coordinated, Annie says:
“Their best team is perhaps the one based at Komtar, Penang. They are so effective that no one who is considered credible can say a single bad thing about Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng without getting lynched by them in the cyberspace.”

Reader Rashid (comment reproduced above) gives us a tip-off regarding the latest deliberate ‘Make Dunno’ by the stabbing tool whose tagline is ‘Bad news for the DAP is good news for the MCA is no news in The Star‘.
[Update: The Star has the story but it came out online much later at Friday afternoon than in the NST which carried an early morning time-stamp. However the article may not have appeared in the Saturday print version of The Star. — 2.35pm, 16 March 2013]
Below is the NST report – missing from The Star – on the most recent case of cyberthuggery against a young Chinese woman whose only crime is showing support for the BN.
The Star appears to have buried this story just like it buried the rant by Patrick Teoh (who is the bff of Papa and Mama Dapster) as well as buried the Lim Guan Eng controversial Christmas eve 2012 message.
Pro-BN Chinese women — most vulnerable group
To recap, the trend of DAP SuperCyber Bullying was highlighted as early as December 2010 by a Beliawanis MCA — see screenshot of tweet below by the wing’s national treasurer Jessica Lai.
So far, it has been mostly Chinese women who have been victims of the Dapster gangster.
Even though the alarm bell was rung by Beliawanis and followed by Wanita MCA, the newspaper owned by MCA has, on the contrary, been doing caught cover-up after cover-up after cover-up to shield the DAP 2.0 evangelistas from negative publicity.
Regarding the rape call, a letter to the FMT editor today said:
“Those comments very clearly come from DAP’s cyber-troopers as that particular video which went viral all over Facebook was shared with degrading comments on DAP’s numerous social media pages. We must then ask ourselves what kind of uncouth culture is DAP promoting among our young (young Malaysians being the majority who use social media) today?”
Truth to tell, the biggest DAP social media page is The Star.
Hari ini dalam Star
And here is The Star‘s write-up today:
“Fresh-faced DAP candidate Hannah Yeoh won the seat in 2008 with a 13,851 majority over MCA’s Ong Chong Swen.”
The Star continues, “Yeoh looks set to defend her state seat and if Ong is indeed fielded in the Kelana Jaya parliamentary seat, those who will be vying for the state seat include Kelana Jaya MCA Youth chief Lee You Hin and Kelana Jaya MCA secretary Gan Meng Foo”.
The reason Hannah Yeoh looks set to retain her seat comfortably is because The Star has been the DAP state assemblyman’s most ardent cheerleader the last five years, featuring her in their pages consistently and even up to six stories over four consecutive days.
Star buried another story
And get this! The MCA’s Ong Chong Swen mentioned in today’s article had previously lodged a report against Hannah Yeoh. Ong accused Hannah of slandering the MCA and the government. The Malay Mail and the NST provided coverage when the police asked Hannah Yeoh to go in for questioning.
The story covered by Malay Mail and NST was missed by The Star. ‘T’is mighty strange indeed.
And today, when The Star mentioned Ong Chong Swen the MCA candidate, the paper forgot all about that earlier episode where bad news for the DAP is good news for the MCA is no news in The Star.
This Star reporter (photo above) claims that “balik kampung tanam jagung” is a “popular Malay phrase”.
Second daughter another Chinese?
If The Star is able to write a story on Hannah Yeoh today, why did not the paper ask her the simple question of what race her second daughter is registered as. After all, the Dapsters scream that Malays are “racist” and that BN parties such as MCA, MIC and Umno are “racist to the core”.
Since the charge of “racism” is continually levelled at the ruling party then this matter of the race of Baby Ram #2 should be given an airing. After all, we’re aware that Baby Ram #1 is legally a Chinese as categorized in the birth certificate, her patrilineal descent notwithstanding.
Hold MCA responsible for its media
BN and their supporters must hold MCA accountable for all the highly damaging pro-opposition slant contained in the Star subtext. See ‘Nasir Safar, Ahmad Ismail, “racism” and the MCA chewing grass
The Star Media Group with its reach to a 5.63 million audience has been amplifying the DAP election campaign material far and wide.
Jerusubang is in control of cyberspace precisely because The Star and other media serve as enablers to the DAP SuperCyber Bullies.
