The J-Star today continued pushing its Nest of Evangelista campaign against “radicalism, extremism, terrorism and militancy”.
Headlined ‘We’ve to nip it now – and at all costs‘, the EvangeliSTAR editorial said that “extremism” could come whether in the form of “terror groups such as IS or even through the voices of certain groups or individuals”.
Evidently, the J-Star and its evangelista editors believe that certain groups and even certain individuals in our country are “extremists” (or “racists” or “bigots” or haters who spew venom).

Najib’s kind of moderate
A couple of days ago, uber evangelista Wong Chun Wai reiterated, “The moderates will continue to speak up. Say no to extremism. If the case has to end up in court, then we will fight him on”.
He is referring to Ibrahim Ali who has threatened to sue The J-Star for half a million ringgit over Chun Wai’s column that commented on Bible burning vis-a-vis the controversy surrounding the Perkasa chief.

The J-Star alleges that the “extremist” groups and “extremist” individuals have an insidious way of spreading their influence.
The Nest of Evangelistas cautions that Malaysians must “take the necessary preventive measures” against these “extremists”.
If the “moderates” do not act firmly against the “extremists”, warns the MCA paper, then extremism “will grow to become a monster that will be impossible to contain”.
The J-Star stresses that the threat posed by the extremists must not only be contained but must be eliminated.
