Malaysian Hypocrisy Over Tibet


Same letter as I sent to Malaysia Today.

Malaysiakini.com main page files it under News instead of just letters – a bit of ego boost for me!

Malaysian hypocrisy over Tibet

What if Thailand had sent its army and tanks into Malaysia? And then what if Bangkok were to host the 2020 Olympic Games?’

Scott Thong Yu Yuen: As our nation’s leader warn against Malaysians holding protests against the Beijing Olympics, I feel compelled to ask a pertinent question – what if Thailand had sent its army and tanks into Malaysia and conquered the entire Peninsula? And then what if Bangkok were to host the 2020 Olympic Games?

Would Malaysians be all smiley and happy-happy about the Olympic Torch relay while our country remained occupied as a ‘rightful province of historic Greater Siam’? Would our neighbours keep officially silent about the gradual replacement of Malaysian multi-culture with Thai customs and norms, just to stay on the good side of the Thai economic giant?

Would our mainstream media newspapers only print letters that bash the West for daring to criticise and politicise the Thailand Games? Heck, what if instead of China Olympics and Tibetan protestors, they were having Israel Olympics and Palestinian protestors? Do you think that the same people calling for the Olympic Games not to be politicised would keep singing the same tune? Do you think that our politicians would call for public restraint, or public protests?

(If you want a hint, just look at the recent hoo-ha over two Israeli members in an English football team who came close to being denied entry to our tolerant nation.) In my honest opinion, it is totally one’s prerogative to protest whatever you want or to condemn whatever protest is being held.

Just don’t act as if you yourself are completely just, righteous and fair-minded. Be honest and admit your highly political biases. I looked at my nation in the mirror, and saw only hypocrisy.

It’s been a long time since my first letter got posted there, Malaysiakini: Are US News Agencies Biased Against Palestine?

Ironic kudos to KTemoc for his posting which alerted me to my letter in Malaysiakini.

Apparently, I’m now well known enough (to KTemoc at least) that I am not just easily identifiable as a Neocon… I am the leading Neocon of Malaysia!

Must be because of posts like these.

Woo! Lord Commander Bushie is gonna SO give me an extra large pork barrel full of earmarks for this!

This Neocon salutes you, Komrad KTemoc! (Actually a secret method to laser-paint you for a Zionist missile full of inhumane flechettes inhumane flechettes to home in…)

    Mullah KT calls you a reincarnation of R Rajan without checking the simple fact that Rajan is younger fella studying in the U somewhere and is certainly very much alive. Really he should mind his language rather more assiduously :D.
    However, in the course of normal human events, excessive babbling reduces precision in words – this is to be expected. This is truly a maxim, in fact.

    “inhumane flechettes”, as compared with humane nails and bolts in the Baalestinian homicidal bomb belts, i.e., I gather.
