Raja Petra and Sakmongkol on ‘terrorists’ and ‘evangelists’
Raja Petra Kamarudin’s column yesterday in Malaysia Today headlined ‘I am a terrorist because of you‘.
RPK’s definition of the word:
“A terrorist is someone who terrorises others. That is how the word came about. So, if you terrorise me then you are a terrorist. And terrorise means to scare, frighten, threaten, intimidate, bully, etc., someone.”
[Helen’s note: Like the DAP SuperCyber Bully and the EvangeliSTAR smear gang]
The sneaky, ‘smiling’ cyber terrorist
RPK writes: “Most of you think that a terrorist is only someone who carries a gun or bomb. That is not true. You do not need to carry a gun or bomb to be a terrorist. You can even be holding a Bible or a Qur’an and have a smile on your face and still be a terrorist.”
Creepy Christians who caused Chinese mass hysteria
RPK writes: “In fact, the Chinese Christians killed 20 million people during the Taiping Rebellion in China from 1850 to 1864. This rebellion was led by the Chinese brother of Jesus Christ, or so he claims …”
Malay apologists who fear being ‘branded as Muslim radicals’
RPK writes: “Teresa Kok is a terrorist. She frightens people who try to impose dress codes by calling them Muslims who are trying to impose Islam on non-Muslims. This scares these people who fear that they may be branded as Muslim radicals so they withdraw that dress code and apologise.”
‘Extremists’, ‘religious bigots’, ‘haters’, blah blah blah
RPK writes: “So you see, when you persecute others you terrorise them and one day they will rise up and fight back. Then when they do you go and call them terrorists when it is you who is terrorising them.”
[Helen’s note: You go and call them “hate-spewing, divisive, race-obsessed ignoramuses” it is you who being hateful, divisive and race obsessed]
DAP hitting panic button, its Malay face compelled to speak up
Sakmongkol’s blog post yesterday titled ‘DAP is controlled by Evangelists and the religious principle of cooperation’.
Sakmongkol is YB Mohd Ariff Sabri Abdul Aziz – the DAP Member of Parliament for Raub.
Datuk Sak writes: “I actually want to begin commenting on 1MDB- but can’t resist commenting beforehand on the accusation that DAP is controlled by evangelists. The person saying this must be a mental gnome or what.”
DAP’s Sak writes: “As a Malay and a Muslim in DAP, I would be among the first to actually know whether DAP is run by evangelists and wants to Christianise everyone. DAP is a secular party which treats a person’s religious denomination as a private matter.”

DAP’s Sak writes: “So who are the evangelists? Teresa Kok? Tony Pua? Anthony Loke? The Singh brothers? Charles Santiago …?”
[Helen’s note: Curious that Sak doesn’t mention Hannah Yeoh, Ong Kian Ming, Yeo Bee Yin, Rajiv Rishyakaran, Lim Lip Eng, David Nga Kor Ming and James Ngeh Koo Ham who is a lay preacher.]
BELOW: Tweets by the Damansara Utama Methodist Church (DUMC) on 25 Jan 2013
DAP’s Sak writes: “I don’t even know whether Anthony Loke, Tony Pua and others are regular churchgoers or not.”
[Helen’s note: DAP’s Dyana Samad has made at least one irregular visit to a church (to attend a wedding) – pix below. Gobind Singh Deo is also in the photo]
DAP’s Sak writes: “They are no preachers. The only thing Tony Pua preaches on is 1MDB…”
Sakmongkol is clearly fudging when he says that the DAP Yang Berhormats are not preachers.

DAP’s Sak writes: “90% of DAP members are Buddhists I think, or some whom I know are free thinkers.”
[Helen’s note: Oh really?]
DAP has 37 MPs. (90% out of 37 is 33.) Are 33 of the DAP’s Parliamentarians Buddhists? Which ones, pray tell us Datuk Sak.
Or let’s give Sak some leeway and narrow it down. DAP has 29 Chinese MPs. (90% out of 27 is 24.) Are 24 of the DAP’s Chinese MPs Buddhists? Which ones, do tell us please Datuk.
Never mind, no need to name 24 Buddhist DAP Parliamentarians. I’m willing to lower the bar even further.
Rather than Datuk Sak’s outlandish claim that 90% of DAP members are Buddhists, just name nine (9/37) Buddhist MPs from DAP, i.e. a quarter of the DAP’s Parliamentarians who are supposedly Buddhist.
This is a serious challenge – just name which ones if you can. I’m sure Datuk Sak will not be able to do so because they’re not Buddhists.
Even the DAP’s Punjabi Adun is a Christian and not a Sikh – YB Mary Josephine Pritam Singh who is the DAP’s Rahang state assemblyman. Perhaps Datuk Sak might like to ask Gobind too what is his religion.
DAP’s Sak writes: “So how do we treat the statement that DAP is run by evangelists? It’s a sensational statement superseded only by the stupidity of the person giving it.”
[Helen’s note: Aaah, it looks like the Dapster evangelista tendency for name-calling other people “stupid” has rubbed off on the DAP’s Malay members now.]
DAP’s Sak concludes:
“The only agenda in accusing DAP as being run by evangelists is to create further distrust and fear among Malays. I will ask the Malays the same question – is your faith that fragile, that it’s easy to get you converted? […] So forget about the issue of DAP being controlled by evangelists.“
