First, be prepared to hold in your vomit as you read this announcement from The Star 13 June 2011:
Umno cybertroopers told to act
By NIK NAIZI HUSIN
BENTONG: Umno’s cybertroopers must play an active role to counter issues played up by the online media.
Party vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the new media had put a negative spin on many issues causing the public to receive wrong information.
Dr Ahmad Zahid said what was more worrying to Umno was fencesitters who were not members of any political party as they could be influenced by wrong information provided by the online media.
“There has been a hate culture propagated by irresponsible groups against Umno.
“This hatred of Umno has influenced the people, so we need to do something drastic to regain their support,” Ahmad Zahid said after opening the Bentong Umno division delegates meeting here yesterday.
Also present was the division’s chief and Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob.
Ahmad Zahid said the pro-Umno cybertroopers had to create something that could attract the masses.
“The information we put out is mainly limited to Umno members and does not reach fencesitters and other members of the public.
“This puts us at a disadvantage,” he said.
He added that Umno should not ignore fencesitters who could make a difference in an election.
First, let me say that if there is a ‘hate culture against UMNO’, well, they started it first and gave us good reason to ‘hate’ them.
Second, of course they would be negative towards alternative media (they’ve even whined about Facebook not being their minions). After all, not everyone is a leashed, rabidly racist lapdog like Spew-tusan. See past examples where traditional new media reporting truthfully and factually got them banned and ISA detained.
Third, as to the content put out by UMNO-cybertroopers being attractive only to UMNOphiles… Who else do they expect to be willing and eager to read seditious bile-istic lies in their own free time?
