The opinion survey below has run 24 hours and I’ve closed the poll.
A total of 278 readers took part in the perception quiz about a dodgy Malaysiakini commenter – see screenshot at the bottom of this page.
On the first question, “Do you think ‘Azhar’ is a Malay?”, 83.1 percent of answered ‘No’, i.e. we do not think that ‘Azhar’ is a Malay.
10.1 percent of you answered ‘Yes’, i.e. we believe that ‘Azhar’ is a Malay while 6.83 percent are unsure.
The second question attracted 255 participants.
On whether, “Do you suspect ‘Azhar’ to be a DAP operative?”, 85.5 percent of answered ‘Yes’, i.e. we harbour a suspicion that ‘Azhar’ is a DAP operative.
10.6 percent of you answered ‘No’, i.e. we don’t believe that ‘Azhar’ is a DAP operative while 3.92 percent are unsure.
Among the feedback, poll respondent ph “strongly believe(s) he’s not a Malay” while Roll says “the words and lingo did not show the person who commented was a Malay Muslim.
Meanwhile islam1st responded, “Helen telahan anda tepat, Azhar is a fake”, adding “Apasal selalu buat baling batu sembunyi tangan acts?”
sirimuda reckons that Azhar is a Red Bean Army trooper, while The Dictator says, “It is obvious that the guy is a paid trooper”.
GR Kumar commented:
“What the Azahar’s of this world cannot stand about PAS is the fact that PAS is not poodle on a Pakatan leash. So much then for the ideas of democratic rights the Pakatan seeks to protect and preserve for the ‘moderate Malaysians’.”
Nice try tapi cuba lagi lain kali ya
According to islam1st, the choice of words (“moderates”, “progressives”) is too obviously DAP.
“DAP ni bangang ke apa? Just because Azhar Idrus tu famous, does not mean that semua Melayu (or Melayu wannabe), must be named Azhar as well,” opined islam1st.
Furthermore, a sentence such as PAS ulama “isolated themselves from fair minded, moderates and thinking Malays” is just the kind of description that the Dapsters like to use to describe the kampung folks who make up the Umno fixed deposit, said islam1st.
For him, the dead giveaway is the “killer sentence” – ‘What we need is progress and development in all spheres so that we as a nation and people, can complete on a global stage’.
“Bingo!” Spoken like a typical Dapster pushing the meritocracy agenda.
A discerning reader can make an educated guess
An overwhelming majority of the poll respondents are able to figure out that ‘Azhar’ is not what the pseudonym seeks to portray him to be, that is, likely a Malay and equally probably a Muslim.
This choice of the Malay-sounding moniker, which carries the implicit connotation of Muslim, is meant to create a perception among Malaysiakini readers in order to facilitate the DAP political agenda. This is typical psywar and a black ops method which the DAP is master of.
Just as the majority of readers of my blog can smell the ‘Azhar’ suspected subterfuge, I too have a good nose when it comes to Christian writers.
Like I’ve said before, the evangelistas dominate the English-language media. Most of the provocative rhetoric and nauseating polemics are written by the Christians.
I’m as sure of this (that they’re Christian) as the poll respondents are certain that ‘Azhar’ is not a Malay. There are clues that you process to determine whether the speaker or writer is expressing himself through the Malay-Muslim lens.
Likewise, I can catch on when a writer is pontificating from his Christian high horse. For a practised reader, it’s not difficult to tell. They just ooze that sickening DAPSubangJaya scent.
DAPSubangJaya is Hannah Yeoh by the way. Read the series of tweets below and you will see what I mean.
