Totally Outrageous!: Newspapers Reports, ISA Arrests and Blatant Double Standards


UPDATES on ISA arrests at Susan Loone.

So let me get this straight…

Utusan Malaysia publishes a hearsay report accusing Teresa Kok of inflammatory conduct. Teresa Kok is arrested under the ISA on the basis of that insinuation.

Sin Chew publishes a well documented report of how Ahmad Ismail uttered inflammatory remarks in public. Sin Chew’s reporter is arrested under the ISA.

And Ahmad Ismail only gets three years… Of being excluded from UMNO.

Can it get any more blatantly double-standard than this????!!!!

    I didnt see this coming, not in my wildest dream did I see this one coming. Ahmad Ismail is free but Tan Hoon Cheng being arrested? That’s really out of logic!
    Malaysia Police better set their priority right and if this is UMNO last effort to stop Anwar from becoming PM. UMNO is really making a big mistake!
    I was 50-50 to support Anwar of forming the government through the undemocratic way but now I’m 100% sure I want to see
    ANWAR IBRAHIM BECOME OUR PRIME MINISTER IN THE SHORTEST TIME POSSIBLE, ANY MEANT POSSIBLE!!! ARMY COME COME COME! AGONG COME COME COME!

    I am so upset by these ISA arrests. Totally double standards. Why not arrest Ahmad ismail, Khir Toyo (for raising the false issue pertaining to Teresa Kok in his blog) and the Utusan Malaysia reporter as well?

    Really, really stupid.

    The United States summoned Friday Malaysia’s top envoy in Washington to protest its crackdown on dissent at a time when the opposition was attempting to take over power in Kuala Lumpur.

    Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
    By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
    `Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,’ I said, `art sure no craven.
    Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore –
    Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore!’
    Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.’

    Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,
    Though its answer little meaning – little relevancy bore;
    For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being
    Ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door –
    Bird or beast above the sculptured bust above his chamber door,
    With such name as `Nevermore.’

    I am infuriated. VERY DAMN PISSED! Ahmad Ismail gets away with allegedly spurting out racist remarks and the reporter who was reporting what she heard only and only doing her job takes the fall? What’s this? Justice?

    This is why Malaysia is fast becoming a hellhole. I’m 17 and i’m dead tired with all this inequalities. The government makes me sick.

    Also present was Teresa’s 71-year-old mother, Pong Seh Kwan, who, with red eyes, said: “The way the police took her is no different than kidnappers. What on earth did she do wrong that she should be abducted like that?”

    She urged all Malaysians to pray for the safety of her daughter and everyone else detained under the ISA.

    Kin Tong said he would be taking legal action against former Selangor menteri besar Datuk Seri Dr Khir Toyo and Utusan Malaysia for falsely accusing Teresa of inciting

    It seems inequality is running wild world wide. Reminds me of how Hitler’s SS troops handled truthful press and those who held a different ideology. My prayers are with you all.

    […] harmony??!!! Wasn’t it they themselves who stoked the fires of rabid mob paranoia and rage by spreading unproven rumours that have now been totally debunked? (See Haris Ibrahim’s post […]
