Excerpt below from an international (wire agency) news report yesterday @ http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asiapacific/concerns-of-rising/1951292.html?cid=twtcna
“I really think moral policing has to stop,” said Selangor State Speaker Hannah Yeoh.
My title concept* above derives from the Blut und Eisen speech given by Prussian prime minister Otto von Bismarck to the Landtag (Parliament) when he “rejected demands for liberal reform“.
(Note: The headline is not my original turn of phrase. It’s Samuel Huntington’s.)
The relevant portion that lent Bismarck’s famous 1862 peroration its name is as follows: “… it is not by speeches and majority resolutions that the great questions of the time are decided – that was the big mistake of 1848 and 1849 – but by iron and blood”.
Ini akaun Twitter rasmi Umno yang dikendalikan oleh bahagian media di ibu pejabat parti.

Personally, I think MCA vice president Chew Mei Fun looks good – awet muda – for her age (she’s past 50).
She is quite the sweet Girl Next Door in her Kajang by-election poster last year – see below.
Wong Chun Wai’s column today in The J-Star is titled, ‘No room for intolerance‘. I’ve excerpted parts of his article below and reproduced the paragraphs in red italics.
My own comments on Chun Wai’s views follow.
Wong Chun Wai (WCW): “Like most Christians in this country, I am sad rather than angry over the protest staged by about 50 people demanding the removal of a cross at a church in Taman Medan in Selangor.”
Helen Ang (HA): Like Hannah Yeoh’s staged sorrow …
“50 people took it upon themselves to resort to thuggery,” said the NST editorial today on the Taman Medan incident concerning the church cross.
NST considered the protest as one deserving of the label “mindless acts of hatred and intolerance” as well as demonstrating “a regrettable level of religious tolerance among Malaysians”. (more…)
“Just like Hannah Yeoh I really pity MCA and Gerakan. To fight against this DAP propaganda machinery and regain the Chinese support is certainly no easy task.”
Albi is alluding to the ‘pity’ that Madame Speaker feels for Gerakan and MIC. (more…)
