Lowyat.NET – Mesti ISA Scott Thong

February 27, 09

Hmm, interesting… Anyone have any idea what this was all about?

Lowyat mesti ISA Scott Thong

Here’s a morsel of what the contents were:

Lowyat mesti ISA Scott Thong

Click for full sizes.

The first screenshot is from Google’s cache of the page, I squeezed the width to make it fit my layout better. It’s an obviously old thread (31st October 2008) that I’ve only just learned about.

The thread has already been removed, likely due to the Kopitiam discussion board’s rule:

Racially charged threads which serve to incite religious or racial incitement, intolerance or hatred is strictly prohibited. Racial discussions of a limited nature may be discussed at Real World Issues, and will be subject to strict moderation.

Apparently someone with the screen name Polaris took offense at this post:

Anwar: Najib Had Sex With Altantuya, Had Her Murdered To Shut Her Up!

(Don’t ask me how I know which post it was – I have my methods.)

And lacking any blogging skills (as I surmise from the condescending attitude towards blogs in the second image), he/she resorted to whining on a forum…

And got his/her post yanked for violation of the rules. Great going, Polaris!

I’m quizzical as to why this, of all posts, should make me ISA-worthy. Even as the title of the post shows, all I did was report on what Anwar was insinuating.

And even then, it was through Susan Loone’s reporting on her blog. (But for me to take a weak-wristed, verbal bullet for Susan is an honour any day!)

I always take care to avoid self-ISAing material, such as insulting religion, royalty, race and whatnot. (I consider politicians and public figures open game, however.) I am civil and polite even towards those I disagree with.

(Even when they’re morons. Which they often are. I mean, just look at their line of non-argument! So noob and amateur! Spastically retarded and retardedly spastic!

…Uh, where was I? Oh yeah. Civil and polite, that’s me. And snarky, very snarky, full of sarcasm and clever mockery I am. Just witness below…)

But some people are just SO over-touchy and super-emo, particularly when it comes to their love idol, Dr. M (just read the comments).

And now, apparently they pine their lovelorn hearts (and other bodily organs too, *ahem*) for Najib as well.

Well, I have this poster on my wall that pretty much sums up their UMNOphilia:

Class Motiv

Sorry, Polaris. Seems that no one wanted to hear your whining all over the forum, nor your moans of unrequited longing for the M and N of the RAHMAN prophecy. It’s all right to do it in the privacy of your own room, just please don’t get any of those sticky fluids on your keyboard, for the sake of the Dell technicians.

Anyway, if anyone has the full story, text or screenshots of what the hoo-hah was all about, do update me. And if you know him/her or post on Lowyat, tell Polaris that I am brutally mocking him/her too!

Obama Speaketh, Stock Market Crasheth

Last November 3, the Dow Jones was at 9,320. Then a Marxist punk was elected President of the USA. At close today, the Dow was at 7,182. That’s a drop of 18.59 points per day since the election. At this rate, it will hit zero in 386 days — just over a year.

Cool video or what?

Oops, above video removed… So have this one instead:

Watch the Dow Jones Index tank as Obama opens his mouth and speaks about his plans for America.

Johor Opposition Leader Boo: Bumiputraism = Apartheid

February 27, 09

He say wrong meh? Apartheid was once the rule in South Africa, but today even Chinese in South Africa are considered ‘African Bumiputera’.

African Bumiputra

From The Star 27 Feb 2009:

Opposition leader Boo causes a stir at assembly

JOHOR BARU: State Opposition leader Dr Boo Cheng Hau caused quite a stir at the state assembly after he equated “bumiputraism” with the South African apartheid policy which discriminated against non-whites.

Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman, who was visibly annoyed with Dr Boo’s choice of word, said that the state assemblyman was merely using the comparison to seek public attention.

“To me, his aim is to provoke negative feelings within some of the members of the public by using such terms in the assembly. It is very provocative,” he said.

In his 15-minute speech, the Skudai assemblymen alleged that some banks, in charging different interest rates to bumiputra and non-bumiputras were practising discrimination.

He said that the interest rates were differentiated according to member (bumiputra) and non-members (non-bumiputras).

“The non-bumiputras are charged a higher interest rate without taking into account their socio-economic status,” he said.

Dr Boo, who previously studied in Jamaica for five years, also said that the worse apartheid aspect was that socio-economic, education, cultural and language were based on “ketuanan” or “kebumiputraan”.

Abdul Ghani explained that certain banks such as Bank Rakyat that operated as a cooperative, gave better benefits to members compared to non-members.

“There is some differences there and coincidentally, the bank practises the syariah way of doing business,” he said, adding that there were also Malays who were non-members and they did not enjoy the benefits given to members.

Abdul Ghani explained that “ketuanan” carried the meaning of the owner (tuan) of the land that is the King (Raja Melayu).

“When the British left Malaya, which was their colony, they returned it to the owner (tuan) of the land that is the King,” he said, adding that the term “ketuanan” did not carry political elements.

As for Abdul Ghani’s attempted explanation that is pretty much run of the mill, one can easily see whether or not the term ‘ketuanan’ is emotionally powerful by turning the tables in this exercise:

KetuananCinaMotiva

Does the above hypothetical scenario make you feel offended? Incensed? Upset? That’s how some people feel about the Ketuanan concept, as is apparent from Dr. Boo’s appeal.

I say, if you would be offended by it yourself, don’t do it to others!

Jed Yoong Accused of Sedition, Harassed by Police

February 26, 09

UPDATE 27 Feb 2009: Jed gave her second statement to the police.

Jed is a nakama, a fellow blogger who stands against injustice, and I stand by her!

Check for updates at Jed’s blog.

PRESS STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 25, 2009 WEDNESDAY

Inspector Mohd Riduan Abd Majid (Office Phone No.: 03-26163989 / H/Phone No.: 019-9890484) from the Bukit Aman Commerical Crime Department’s Cyber and Multimedia Crime Investigation Unit emailed me this morning, saying:

“I want to continue a statement recording with you. There are several questions to ask, so it will make your statement very clear. Hope you to come at JSJK Bukit Aman this evening at 5pm or 6pm. I will make it fast.”

I’ve agreed to go in at 7pm this evening (Wednesday, Feb 25, 2009).

On Monday (23/02/2009), I went to the Bukit Aman Commerical Crime Department’s Cyber and Multimedia Crime Investigation Unit and gave my statement to Inspector Riduan from about 6pm — 10pm after he called and emailed me on the same day. I was unrepresented by a lawyer as, when asked, Inspector Riduan says he doesn’t need one.

Under tremendous pressure, with my handphone taken away from me, facing two officers and one or two that came in and out, I felt I had no choice but to give and sign a statement against my wishes in order to ensure my safety. Riduan at many points refuse to allow me to give me the answers that I want and changed my statement many times to fit his preferred answers. I was also not allowed to see the police report and had no idea why I was being interrogated. However, the police were courteous and professional at all times and I am happy to cooperate with the police who are merely doing their jobs.

Following that, at about 10pm, as instructed by the police, I brought four policemen (ASP Hazizi Bin A Samad, Insp Mohd Faizal B Zainal, Insp Zurina Bt Alias and KPL 128548 Zawahid Bin Nik) to my family’s house. I led the way with Insp Zuraina in the car while the others followed my car.

Before entering my house ASP Hazizi informed me that he is entering the premises and seizing my computers under the Sedition Act, which I am being investigated under. They came in drew floor plans of my house, took photos, recorded videos and confiscated my laptop, its power cable, a desktop CPU, a router and a modem. At all times, the police were professional and courteous.

The next day (Tuesday, February 24, 2009), I lodged a police report at the Brickfields police station/IPD about the the items confiscated as I am concerned that the data in the items would be tampered with as I am not the only one using the computers (which are not password protected) and I did not check the data before I handed over the items to the police.

I feel that I am being set up by the police and my rights has been violated as I’ve not been shown the police report, my statement taken from me under conditions in which I feared for my safety, items seized from my house and I’ve not been advised by the police to get legal representation.

If I have broken any laws, I wish to say that it is unintentional and there is no malice involved, what more an intent to incite hatred of any sorts. I am merely expressing my opinion using modern technology in the 21st century.

I feel that the country’s laws are not equally applied to everyone but used to silent dissent, in particular ordinary bloggers with no political backing.

My blog is not particularly influential, compared to mainstream newspapers like Utusan, The Star, Sin Chew, etc, and other news outlets like TV3. These media have the potential to easily incite hatred and cause racial riots. In my view, in many cases, the Malay-vernacular press have published many articles that can be said to incite racial hatred, for instance, Utusan’s frontpage yesterday that claimed DAP Hina Islam? (DAP Insults Islam?) (http://www.utusan.com.my/utusan/info.asp?y=2009&dt=0224&pub=Utusan_Malaysia&sec=Muka_Hadapan&pg=mh_01.htm)

DAP hina Islam?
Oleh HASNURUL MOHAMED
utusanpen…@utusan.com.my

NIBONG TEBAL 23 Feb. – Penubuhan Majlis Perundingan Antara Agama oleh kerajaan negeri Pulau Pinang mesti dihentikan kerana ia meletakkan Islam sama taraf dengan agama-agama lain.

Yang Dipertua Majlis Agama Islam Negeri Pulau Pinang (MAINPP), Shabudin Yahaya berkata, cubaan menyamakan Islam dengan fahaman agama lain ternyata menghina Islam dan tindakan seperti itu mesti dihentikan.

Katanya, MAINPP berasa cukup tersinggung apabila ada beberapa ahli jawatankuasa (AJK) majlis tersebut terdiri daripada orang Melayu.

‘‘Saya difahamkan ada tiga orang AJK Melayu beragama Islam duduk dalam majlis tersebut yang kononnya mahu menuntut kesamarataan agama.

‘‘Ini sesuatu yang cukup menakutkan kerana agama Islam dipandang sama seperti Buddha yang diasaskan oleh manusia bernama Gautama Buddha, disamakan juga dengan Kristian, Taoism dan Bahai,” katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian kepada Utusan Malaysia ketika diminta mengulas ucapannya semasa majlis penyerahan Dana Zakat Program Didik Cemerlang Akademik 2009 di Sungai Dua di sini semalam.

Ketika berucap pada majlis tersebut, Shabudin melahirkan rasa kurang senangnya terhadap penubuhan Majlis Perundingan Antara Agama Pulau Pinang yang bertujuan meletakkan semua agama, termasuk agama Islam sebagai sama rata dengan agama-agama lain.

Majlis tersebut ditubuhkan tahun lalu iaitu selepas kerajaan pakatan pembangkang yang diterajui Ketua Menteri, Lim Guan Eng mula memerintah negeri itu.

Majlis itu dipengerusikan Guan Eng sendiri. Mengulas lanjut, Shabudin yang juga Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Permatang Berangan, Tasek Gelugor berkata, agama Islam itu tinggi dan tidak ada yang lebih tinggi daripadanya.

Hence I strongly feel it is ludicrous and absurd to say that I can even influence anyone what more incite racial hatred or any sort of hatred towards anyone. If anyone is hateful, they will be so without reading my blog. I am not God.

I also wish to say as a Malaysian, I am loyal to King and Country. In many posts I’ve always expressed my gratitude towards the country for allowing my family to have a happy prosperous live, especially under the Barisan government led by Dr Mahathir Mohamad. If I’ve offended anyone with my honest feelings based on facts, it is not my intention to do so. In the 21st century, rulers of all kind should be open to feedback because after all they are not gods that are are beyond reproach.

It would be much appreciated if the media will carry my statement or send reporters to the Bukit Aman Commercial Crimes Unit tonite. I will be there from 7pm and am not sure what time this second interrogation will end.

I’ve lost my handphone and can only be contacted via email now till I get a new handphone later today.

Thanks.

From The Star 26 Feb 2009:

Cops probe blogger over post

PETALING JAYA: Police are investigating blogger Jed Yoong Yui Foong, 31, for allegedly posting seditious remarks on her blog against the King.

She was called up by the Bukit Aman Cyber Crime unit on Monday and had her statement taken.

After her interrogation, four police officers accompanied her to her house in Taman Desa and seized her computer and laptop under the Sedition Act. They also took photos and recorded videos in her house.

Yoong is scheduled to meet with police at Bukit Aman again today.

A police spokesman said investigations were ongoing and that Yoong had given her full cooperation.

So when is that arrogant hypocritical snob Ahmad Ismail going to get investigated, huh???

Ahmad Ismail Pendatang

People who merely report on him have already been ISAed, need I remind you!

Tan Hoon Cheng ISA

And an opposition politician, based on hearsay from Utusan Malaysia:

Obama Chimp = WRONG

February 25, 09

Obama as a chimp?

Well, ignoring the fact that the actual authors of the Porkulus Bill are Congress and not Obama…

And ignoring the fact that anyone who gets all outraged over the perceived racism of the cartoon are themselves being racist for automatically equating a chimp to a black man

Portrayaing Obama as a chimp is flat out wrong.

Obama’s analogy is supposed to be spelled C-H-U-M-P if you didn’t know.

Witness:

Just another moment of doom in a long-running trend of the stock market crashing whenever Obama does ANYTHING.

But hey… He will fix the economy!

By the way, you can probably blame the past 8 years of Bush = Chimp antics for popularizing these kind of comparisons if must pin down a culprit. Karma is a beach (sic).

Final Fantasy 6 Opera Scene – Videos of Different Versions

February 24, 09

Ah, that famous and much beloved Opera Scene from Final Fantasy VI (known as Final Fantasy III in the American localization). Featuring Celes Chere in the title role of Maria singing the song Aria di Mezzo Carattere (also used as Celes’ theme).

Here I gather the various versions, remixes and tributes to it that I have come across. Lyrics for the various versions can be found here. Enjoy!

The original full opera house from the Super Nintendo game, English version:

Just Celes’ singing scene from the Super Nintendo game, English version:

Celes’ theme from the Super Nintendo game, music only with static image:

Lyrics at here. Sound only but with a slideshow of images of Celes, two parts:

Another live performance, this time in Japanese from ‘Voices ~ Music from Final Fantasy”, performed on February 18, 2006, in Yokohama’. The performers actually act/dance out their parts, and you get lots of close ups of the musicians. Two parts:

Rock group The Black Mages plays their hard and sentimental rock version of the opera scene complete with Japanese vocals, named Darkness and Starlight. It may take a while for you to get used to this rendition, but it’s really appreciable once you do! Sounds only, two parts:

Orchestral version from Distant Worlds concert (music only):

Part of the ending of the original Super Nintendo release of the game, featuring a beautiful medley of Locke’s theme and Celes’ theme at 1 minute 33 seconds. (Yes, if you noticed, Locke is the fellow with the bandana in the Playstation FMVs!):

Great stuff, snarky take on Communist Russia cliches… With lolcats!

Some excerpts I found especially funny are below. Translated captions follow each image.

Drat, thwarted so close to freedom’s sweet caress… I dreamed for but a taste of the decadent west, and now my eulogy is sung by guard dogs and alarm bells.

I have bested my brethren this day!!!

It is I who will inflict happiness and joy upon countless children in the Moscow Circus!

I swear I spoke no ill of The Party!

Submit with honor, and you will earn a proper burial among your fathers!

This shall provide the nourishment needed to brave the crowds awaiting their weekly beetroot ration.

Where re-education has failed my comrade, the hangman’s noose will succeed…

State-run media is best for everyone!

Make haste for the village granary, Sasha!

No Can Has Cheezburger Cos it Causes Global Warming

February 17, 09

NO CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER… NATHAN PELLETIER SEZ IT MAIKS GLOBL WARMINGS.

No can has cheezbruger global warming

When it comes to global warming, hamburgers are the Hummers of food, scientists say.

That’s because beef is such an incredibly inefficient food to produce and cows release so much harmful methane into the atmosphere, said Nathan Pelletier of Dalhousie University in Canada.

Even though beef only accounts for 30 percent of meat consumption in the developed world it’s responsible for 78 percent of the emissions, Pelletier said Sunday at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

No beefburger… No cheezburger… Nathan Pelletier no give eat cos it maiks earth has fevar.

From I Can Has Cheezburger lolcats. Go there an vote to stop the globl warmings!!!
