In an editorial headlined ‘Zulkifli Noordin – the depth of political satanism‘, the Ant Daily team wrote:
“Zulkifli, you are a living testament of how detestable a supposedly religious person can be. You move around with your skull cap and all, but all you do is spew racially and religiously venomous statements.” […]
“”To Umno, it is high time for it to stop cavorting with bigots like Zulkifli.
“Thank God we still have sane and level-headed Umno politicians like Khairy who can draw the line between politics and humanity.”
Are these Ant Daily reporters Dapster buddies of Regina Lee by any chance?

Now take a deep breath and just have a relook at the aggressive vocabulary utilized by this major news portal which is the No.423 most popular website in Malaysia, according to the Alexa web traffic ranking.
The Ant Daily‘s choice words: “political satanism [of Zul]”, “detestable [Zul]”, “You move around with your skull cap and all”, “spew racially and religiously venomous statements”, “bigots like Zulkifli”
Incidentally, The Ant Daily is a sister publication of The Heat, the newspaper that was temporarily suspended by the Home Ministry not too long ago.
Another editorial by the Ant Daily team is titled ‘Umno morons and supporters rejoice in Karpal’s death‘.
This article said: “The death of DAP stalwart Karpal Singh has made moronic characters from the Barisan Nasional (BN) to crawl out of the woodwork and bare their ugly faces in the social media.”
The Ant Daily team further caution the PM:
“It is about time that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had a look at the ‘garbage’ he calls his alliance and worked on distancing himself from these dodgy characters for his own good.
“It is a fact that the premier’s image and reputation had plunged (and continue to do so) lately and keeping people like Nawawi and Zulkifli and his goons will only further dent Najib’s image.”
Wow! This is the kind of language: “Umno morons”, “moronic characters”, “crawl out of the woodwork”, “[BN’s] ugly faces”, “[BN is] garbage”, “Zulkifli and his goons”
And mind you, this is a news portal that is the sister publication to a new newspaper that got its licence (re)approved by the Home Ministry.
“Step ON Karpal’s body”
A third Ant Daily article is headlined ‘Papagomo tweets he wants to step on Karpal’s body‘.
The reporter Cecilia Jeyanthi Victor wrote:
“He [Papagomo] also tweeted that he wants to step on the Bukit Gelugor MP’s body.”
Obviously the Ant Daily reporter has a poor grasp of the Malay language.
“Langkah mayat” alludes to Karpal’s famous saying “over my dead body” and should not be mistranslated to imply that Papagomo wants to step “on” Karpal’s body, as the portal suggests in its headline.
Cecilia Jeyanthi Victor also editorialized:
“Karpal’s death has exposed the shocking rise of heartless, insensitive and evil beings. There are so many of such devil’s advocates crawling out of the Malaysian political woodwork.” […]
“These are so-called Muslims who are not only shaming Islam but also the country. Thankfully, they are only in the minority”.
Ms Victor must be a Christian. She has just kafirkan Zulkifli Noordin by doubting that he is a true Muslim and instead suggesting that he and his like-minded colleagues are only “so-called Muslims”.
Her vocabulary is also very Christian-like: “evil beings [like Zul]”, “devil’s advocates crawling out of the Malaysian political woodwork”, “shaming Islam”, “shaming the country”.
The Ant Daily is evidently a pro-Christian portal that is on the warpath against Perkasa. Clearly no Christian neighbourly love from them extended to Zul and gang. Not even on Good Friday, Easter Sunday.
