Global warming and crimes against humanity

February 4, 2014

FMT LETTER: From Malaysian Realist, via e-mail

We’ve been seeing a lot of unexpectedly cool weather across the world. While this may be explained by local phenomenon such as the Northeast Monsoon in Malaysia and the Polar Vortex in the USA, a longer term trend of worldwide cooling is headed our way.

I say this because the sun, the main source of light and heat for our planet, is approaching a combined low point in output. Solar activity rises and falls in different overlapping cycles, and the low points of several cycles will coincide in the near future:

A The 11-year Schwabe Cycle which had a minimum in 2008 and is due for the next minimum in 2019, then 2030. Even at its recent peak (2013) the sun had its lowest recorded activity in 200 years.

B The 87-year Gleissberg Cycle which has a currently ongoing minimum period from 1997-2032, corresponding to the observed ‘lack of global warming’ (more on that later).

C The 210-year Suess Cycle which has its next minimum predicted to be around 2040.

Hence, solar output will very likely drop to a substantial low around 2030-2040. This may sound pleasant for Malaysians used to sweltering heat, but it is really not a matter to be taken lightly. Previous lows such as the Year Without A Summer (1816) and the Little Ice Age (16th to 19th century) led to many deaths worldwide from crop failures, flooding, superstorms and freezing winters.

But what about the much-ballyhooed global warming, allegedly caused by increasing CO2 levels in the atmosphere? Won’t that more than offset the coming cool spell, still dooming us all to a feverish Earth?

Regarding this matter, it is now a plainly accepted fact that there has been no global temperature rise in the past 25 years. This lack of warming is openly admitted by NASA, The UK Met Office, the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit, as well as its former head Dr Phil Jones (he of the Climategate data manipulation controversy), Hans von Storch (lead author for Working Group I of the IPCC), James Lovelock (inventor of the Gaia Theory), and media entities the BBC, Forbes, Reuters, The Australian, The Economist, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal.

And this is despite CO2 levels having risen more than 13%, from 349ppm in 1987 to 396ppm today. The central thesis of global warming theory – that rising CO2 levels will inexorably lead to rising global temperatures, followed by environmental catastrophe and massive loss of human life – is proven false. (All the above are clearly and cleanly depicted by graphs, excerpts, citations and links in my collection as a public service.)

This is probably why anti-CO2 advocates now warn of ‘climate change’ instead. But pray tell, exactly what mechanism is there for CO2 to cause climate change if not by warming? The greenhouse effect has CO2 trapping solar heat and thus raising temperatures, as we have been warned ad nauseum by climate alarmists, so how does CO2 cause climate change when there is no warming?

Solar activity is a far larger driver of global temperature than CO2 levels, because after all, without the sun there would be no heat for greenhouse gases to trap in the first place. (Remember what I said about the Gleissberg cycle above?).

And why is any of this important to you and I? It matters because countless resources are being spent to meet the wrong challenges. Just think of all the time, energy, public attention and hard cash that have already been squandered on bio-fuel mandates, subsidies for solar panels and wind turbines, carbon caps and credits, bloated salaries of dignitaries, annual jet-setting climate conferences in posh five-star hotels… to say nothing of the lost opportunities and jobs (two jobs lost for every one ‘green’ job created in Spain, which now has 26% unemployment!). And most of the time it is the common working man, the taxpayer, you and I who foot the bill.

What if all this immense effort and expenditure had been put towards securing food and clean water for the impoverished (combined 11 million deaths/year)? Or fighting dengue and malaria (combined 1.222 million deaths/year)? Or preserving rivers, mangroves, rainforests and endangered species? Or preparing power grids for the increased demand that more severe winters will necessitate – the same power grids now crippled by shutting down reliable coal plants in favour of highly intermittent wind turbines?

In the face of such dire needs that can be met immediately and effectively, continuing to throw away precious money to ’possibly, perhaps, maybe one day’ solve the non-problem of CO2 emissions is foolish, arrogant and arguably malevolent. To wit, the UN World Food Programme just announced that they are forced to scale back aid to some of the 870 million malnourished worldwide due to a $1 billion funding shortfall and the challenges of the ongoing Syrian crisis. To put this is context, a billion is a mere pittance next to the tens of billions already flushed away by attempted adherence to the Kyoto Protocol (€6.2 billion for just Germany in just 2005 alone!).

During the high times for global warmist doomsaying, sceptics and realists who questioned the unproven theories were baselessly slandered as ‘anti-science’, ‘deniers’, ‘schills for big oil’… or even ‘war criminals’ deserving Nuremberg-style trials for their ‘crimes against humanity’!

Now that the tables are turned, just let it be known that it was not the skeptics who flushed massive amounts of global resources down the drain, while genuine human and environmental issues languished and withered in the empty shadow of global warming hysteria. Crimes against humanity, indeed.

The Inconvenient Facts For Global Warming Believers

WHITHER GLOBAL WARMING?

Given the recent blizzard in North America, it gets even harder to believe in the Global Warming junk that passes itself off as science.

Blizzard hammers U.S. Northeast, five dead, 700,000 lose power

People arrive with their children and toboggans to a snowy Central Park in New York February 9, 2013. A blizzard packing hurricane-force winds pummeled the northeastern United States on Saturday, killing at least one person, leaving about 600,000 customers without power and disrupting thousands of flights. REUTERS-Carlo Allegri

By Tim McLaughlin and Edith Honan

BOSTON/NEW YORK | Sat Feb 9, 2013 5:00pm EST

(Reuters) – A record-breaking blizzard packing hurricane-force winds hammered the northeastern United States on Saturday, cutting power to 700,000 homes and businesses, shutting down travel and leaving at least five people dead.

The mammoth storm that stretched from the Great Lakes to the Atlantic dumped more than 3 feet of snow across the Northeast, the National Weather Service said.

Coastal blizzard and flood warnings were in effect, but Massachusetts and Connecticut lifted vehicle travel bans as the storm slowly moved eastward on Saturday afternoon.

GLOBAL WARMING WAS MADE FAMOUS (SOME WOULD SAY INFAMOUS) BY AL GORE. For many years, he managed to fool everyone; indeed, he fooled even the people responsible for awarding the Nobel Peace Prize, and got the award.

Here is a sample of his writing.

Poor Martin Khor, Still Desperately Pushing Global Warming Which No One Else Believes in Anymore

I admit that I will gleefully engage in plenty of schadenfreude and I toooooooollllld you so when the global warming hysterians and hucksters are finally forced to eat their words. Especially Martin Khor.

Floods and global climate chaos

Global Trends
By MARTIN KHOR

Climate scientists are reluctant to link each of the floods directly to climate change, as this is hard to prove. But there is a general belief that global warming contributes to the increased incidence of flooding.

A scientist at the World Meteo­rological Organisation last year explained how the warming of the oceans increased cloud formation and contributed to the devastating Pakistan floods.

Dublin was affected by flash floods earlier this year. An Irish newspaper, linking it to climate change, cited a flood risk management report of the Office of Public Works in 2009 which claimed that “the frequency, pattern and severity of flooding are expected to increase as a result of climate change.”

Meanwhile, a United Kingdom government-linked report released last week described how climate change is likely to create hundreds of millions of refugees around the world as they try to escape from areas affected by global warming.

The refugees may have to move from their homes as climate change induces events such as floods, droughts, storms and heatwaves, according to the Foresight group, part of Britain’s Office for Science.

However, many of these refugees may move into even worse affected areas, such as coastal areas that are vulnerable to floods from storms and sea level rise.

The floods and the sobering predictions on climate refugees are sober reminders that political leaders need to take global warming more seriously. The interest to act globally on climate change has waned in the past two years.

So global warming causes more flooding, including the curent Thailand floods.

…Even though the globe didn’t warm in the past 15 years:

How to Stop Chili or Chilli Burning

MORE THAN 200 COMMENTS TESTIFYING TO THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THIS SIMPLE TREATMENT!

FOR INSTANT CHILLI BURNING RELIEF:

MOUTH – Drink milk or alcohol. The chilli chemical does not dissolve in water, but it dissolves in fats (e.g. milk cream) or alcohol.

SKIN – Rub with salt. You can use a bit of water to lubricate. Finish off with a rinse in milk and wash with soap and water. If that still doesn’t work (like in my case below), soak your hand in a strong alcoholic beverage for minutes (Jack Daniels seems a popular choice among commentors, especially to drink and sooth the mouth/throat!). The salt scrapes off the chilli stuck to your skin, the milk and soap and alcohol dissolve what little is left.

OTHER SUGGESTIONS FROM COMMENTORS, NOT PERSONALLY TESTED SO USE AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION:

Tip from a Thai restaurant – leave a cucumber slice on the affected area.

Tip from Poison Control – soak in Maalox, use Solarcaine or Xylocaine to relieve pain.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT – YOUR PENCIL ERASER WOULD BE THE WEAPON AGAINST EC VOTE RIGGING.

The Voter Agent Training recently conducted at the PJ Civic Centre brought to the fore some very critical issues which every Voter ought to know.

These are :

1. As soon as you enter the polling station, you will be ushered to Kerani 1, who will check your personal identity against your NRIC. He/she will then read out your name, NRIC number and the Siri/Bilangan number in accordance to the List provided by the Election Commission (SPR).

2. Once all that is verified, Kerani 1 will pass your NRIC to the next officer, Kerani 2.

3. Here, Kerani 2 will hand you a ‘Kertas Undi,’ which is identified by its Serial Number. As a Voter, please know your rights. You have the constitutional right under our Election Laws to NOT accept the ‘Kertas Undi’ that the officer assigns to you. You CAN and should ask for a different ‘Kertas Undi’ from a different book. To do that, just say to the officer, “Encik (or Cik), saya minta Kertas Undi dari buku lain atau dari bawah.” Translated, that is, “Sir (or Madam), I like to request a different ballot paper from a different book or from below.” This must be done so that the Voter CANNOT be identified via the SPR’s Master List. It will take just ONE voter to upset the whole sequence, which will eventually affect the SPR’s Master List for that voting centre. The aim of doing this is to SAFEGUARD every Voter’s identity. No one has the right to know how you want to vote.

4. Once your ‘Kertas Undi’ is issued to you, just stand there and do NOT leave immediately. Instead please CHECK BOTH SIDES of the ballot paper in order to ensure that there are NO pencil markings or any other form of suspicious markings on it. If there are, REJECT the ballot paper issued to you and instead request for these markings to be either erased to your satisfaction or for you to be issued with a new ‘Kertas Undi.’ Also do NOT accept any loose-lying ‘Kertas Undi,’ which may have been strewn about because it was rejected by someone else earlier. ALWAYS ask for a fresh ballot paper from the book. An alternative, as suggested by certain other people via email, is to bring along your own eraser so that when you see any pencil marks, you can rub them off completely yourself.

5. Kerani 2 will then hand the ‘Kertas Undi’ to the next officer, Kerani 3. Kerani 3 carries a seal, which will be used to stamp your ‘Kertas Undi.’ PLEASE watch carefully that the officer stamps your ballot paper FULLY and CLEARLY. After that, see that it is folded into two before the ballot paper is handed over to you. Incomplete stamp mark can and will render your ballot paper as spoiled vote.

6. You can now proceed to the voting booth.

7. At the booth, please ensure that the ballot paper has only your ONE marking of a single X. If for whatever reason, suspicious or otherwise, you overlooked some pencil marks of numbers or markings on the front or back of the ballot paper (ie other than your own mark), please ERASE those markings completely. REMEMBER, these markings can and will render your ballot spoiled – so be Extra Cautious. The most careful approach is to check your ‘Kertas Undi’ thoroughly before you accept it from the officer.

REMEMBER to check it in front of the relevant officer so that if you have to reject it, he is right in front of you.

8. Do not be afraid or cower in fear when you have to express your objections because there are representatives from the various participating political parties who will be there to observe the whole voting process and they are there to assist you as and when you need.

As mentioned earlier, It is this kind of information that GUILTY PARTY does not want others to know. They thrive on public ignorance so that they can do whatever they feel like brazenly.

One way to stop them is to send this information to as many of your friends as possible so that everyone, on voting day, knows exactly what to do, and is fully AWARE of his/her constitutional voting rights.

Print this out and keep it safely. When Voting Day finally arrives, it will be handy for you to access and read again.

PLEASE bring along your own pencil ERASER.

It is VITAL that we get this information across to as many people as possible.

Obama in 2017 – The Only Job Left That’s A Step-Up from President

November 30, 12

So barring an overhaul of the legislation to allow a third term as President, Obama will be all packed to leave the White House by January 2017. Where to from there? What remains to be achieved by the most powerful man in the world, the head of the richest, only superpower among the nations?

It’s been said by some that there is no higher position left to attain. This is it, and anything else represents a step down for Obama.

Actually, I believe there is one step up left.

Say hello to U.N. Secretary General Barack Hussein Obama.

It makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? He was always less of the Leader of the USA, and more of the Healer-Messiah Ascended Guide of The World. Even as practically half of America rejected him in 2012, he’s still wildly popular in the rest of the world that doesn’t actually have to live under his domestic policies (Pakistan, Iran and anywhere else his Kill Drones are circling not included of course).

He’s especially beloved in Europe – that debt-sunken, chronically unemployed, high-gas priced, green energy failing territory he’s trying to make the USA emulate. It was a bunch of Euroweenies who voted him his Nobel Peace Prize remember.

It fits his temperament perfectly – a few mediations here, a few high-society cocktail receptions there, a lot of empty platitudes to world peace and the universal brotherhood of humanity with very little actually getting accomplished.

Plus, heading the carbon-cappy UN gels perfectly with his intentions to slow the rise of the oceans and redistribute the wealth of the imperialist First World that deserves to be punished for their historic wrongs against the rest of the world.

So be warned, Americans – just because Obama doesn’t stick around as Diktator for Life, doesn’t mean he can’t find other ways to mess up America!

Why Obama Will Lose November 2012

October 23, 12

So here is the laundry list of why I firmly believe Obama is headed out the door come Election 2012.

- JOB JOBS JOBS – it’s still the economy stupid! Here’s a few dozen graphs and videos proving that Obama’s 4 years not only failed to restore the economy, but instead made it WORSE! And from the many, these few in particular are very telling about the election:

Freaky Frog Reproduction

Freaky Frog Reproduction

Here is a selection of freaky frogs with truly unique, unusual and outright bizarre reproductive habits! Browse through the pics and be amazed and delighted (or just grossed out). But do also consider the very important implications of such unique reproductive tactics, at the bottom of this post.

——————–

Darwin’s frog, Rhinoderma darwinii

DarwinFrog

DarwinFrog2

Females lay their eggs on moist soil and when the eggs hatch, the males ‘swallow’ the tadpoles and put them in their specialized vocal sacs. The tadpoles stay there through metamorphosis, about 6 weeks, and then are released in a series of convulsive movements as miniature frogs (Cogger and Zweifel 1998, Gallardo 1999).

Rather ironic name, considering that Darwinism has a hard time explaining how this system could have evolved through random processes.

Cited from
http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich.edu…
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhinodermatidae

———————

Midwife toad, Genus Alytes

MidwifeToad1   MidwifeToad2

The female expels a strand of eggs, which the male fertilizes externally. He then wraps them around his legs to protect them from predators in the water. When they are ready to hatch, the male wades into shallow water, where he allows the tadpoles to leap out of their eggs.

Cited from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midwife_toad

——————–

Marsupial frog, Genus Gastrotheca

PygmyMarsupialFrog

Females possess a dorsal brood pouch (on the back). The eggs are fertilized on the female’s lower back, and are inserted in her pouch with the aid of the male’s toes. The eggs remain in contact with the female’s vascular tissue, which provides oxygen for them.

The pic reminds me of the movie Gremlins, where if water is sprayed onto a Gremlin, four more would bulge and pop out of its back.

Cited from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marsupial_frog

——————–

Surinam toad, Pipa pipa

SurinamToad

The female releases 60-100 eggs, which are fertilized by the male and then embedded in the skin of the female’s back by the male’s movements. After implantation the eggs sink into the skin and form pockets over a period of several days, eventually taking on the appearance of an irregular honeycomb. The larvae develop through the tadpole stage inside these pockets, eventually pushing out from the membrane on the mother’s back as fully developed frogs.

http://www.honoluluzoo.org/surinam_toad.htm
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surinam_toad

Video of emerging larvae at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCayq56wHSA

——————–

Gastric brooding frog, Rheobatrachus silus

GastricBrooding1

GastricBrooding3

After the eggs are fertilized by the male, the female swallows the eggs. At this time, the frog’s stomach is normal, secreting hydrochloric acid and a powerful enzyme which together would normally break down and digest anything in the stomach.

However, the jelly around the eggs contains a special chemical (prostaglandin E2) which halts production of acid and also appears to prevent the stomach from discharging its contents further down the gut. This chemical also relaxes the stomach wall, enabling it to thin out and expand to an enormous degree. During this time, the mother does not eat at all.

The young are nourished by the extra large yolk of the eggs. They are released from the mother as fully formed miniature frogs. Over a period as long as a week, the mother comes up to the water surface and relaxes her gullet, allowing the baby frog to come out of her mouth. A mother which was disturbed was also been observed ‘vomiting’ out all the young in one go.

By far the strangest reproductive adaptation. I highly suggest vivisting the first cited link for a take on just how impossible it is to evolve a set of physical, chemical and behavioural adaptations as complex as these.

Cited from
http://www.answersingenesis.org/creation/v15/i2/frog.asp
http://faculty.uca.edu/~benw/biol4402/lecture9/sld003.htm
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gastric-brooding_Frog

——————–

Having seen these various froggy breeding adaptations, one must ask the following questions of naturalistic evolutionary theory:

1) How did such complex organs, complex behaviour and complex adaptations to the young evolve through a step-by-step process?

Especially since small adaptations towards a fully-functioning biological system (for example, a dorsal pouch with sacs, but no vascular tissue to provide oxygen) that provide no benefit on their own should quickly be lost when the evolver dies, due the useless mutation making it less fit for survival.

Just imagine a Gastric brooding frog that evolved the swallowing eggs behaviour, but not any other pieces of the puzzle. It would die out in one generation as it digests every batch of its eggs! Even if a few survived to escape the mother’s stomach, this would invalidate the rule of ‘more surviving offspring, more copies of that adaptation’.

2) How did such complex organs, complex behaviour and complex adaptations to the young evolve simultaneously through random processes?

If only one or a few of the requirements were evolved first, they would be useless and pointless. For example, the gastric-brooding frog. If any one of the processes among placing the eggs in the mouth, acid-inhibition, larger egg yolk, not swallowing the eggs further into the digestive tract, or regurgitating the baby frogs were not present… Then the entire reproductive strategy would fail totally.

If the chances are so low to even randomly evolve just one of the above traits correctly, then the chances to simultaneously evolve several genetically unrelated traits in the same generation must be mini-miniscule!

3) How and why did such a reproductive package evolve?

Each seems to be an adaptation to the absence of conventional bodies of fresh water where frogs normally lay eggs. If it was in response to rivers drying up, then the frogs would have been unable to reproduce and would all have died out long before their specialized system could evolve.

Whereas if the systems were evolved before the environmental pressure appeared, then why did the frogs even change from the standard spawn-in-water model in the first place? Their heavy investment in specialized reproduction would have put them at a disadvantage to normal frogs. There would have been no driving force, no selection pressure, no reason to evolve.

In conclusion…

There are many amazing living things which boggle evolutionists’ attempts to explain how and why they could have evolved. And it just so happens (or was it intentionally planned?) that several types of frogs have incredible reproductive strategies, each wildly different from the other, yet each accomplishing the purpose of continuing life.

So was it just incredible coincidence that all the right parts came together in the right way, at just the right time and place (ala X-men style instant evolution)? And not just once, but multiple times over the history of life on Earth… As many times, in fact, as there are different life forms.

Or is there perhaps some other explanation, one that works and fits much better than the dogmatically-spouted theory of evolution? Christian counseling degrees are not needed to draw such a conclusion. Just a clear mind.

How to Stop Chili or Chilli Burning

MORE THAN 200 COMMENTS TESTIFYING TO THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THIS SIMPLE TREATMENT!

FOR INSTANT CHILLI BURNING RELIEF:

MOUTH – Drink milk or alcohol. The chilli chemical does not dissolve in water, but it dissolves in fats (e.g. milk cream) or alcohol.

SKIN – Rub with salt. You can use a bit of water to lubricate. Finish off with a rinse in milk and wash with soap and water. If that still doesn’t work (like in my case below), soak your hand in a strong alcoholic beverage for minutes (Jack Daniels seems a popular choice among commentors, especially to drink and sooth the mouth/throat!). The salt scrapes off the chilli stuck to your skin, the milk and soap and alcohol dissolve what little is left.

OTHER SUGGESTIONS FROM COMMENTORS, NOT PERSONALLY TESTED SO USE AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION:

Tip from a Thai restaurant – leave a cucumber slice on the affected area.

Tip from Poison Control – soak in Maalox, use Solarcaine or Xylocaine to relieve pain.

Tip from sandy kay, rub Vicks Vaporub (mentholated cream) on the skin.

Tip from Brenda and Sumati Nair, soak in lemon juice. If these work for you, do mention in the comments.

Tip from Kitty Cat, soak in homemade scrub/yogurt.

Tip from Jennifer K, olive oil seems to help after the salt rub.

Tip from Jimmy, a Thai remedy is to put toothpaste on the spot.

Tip from yam, smear mayonnaise on the affected spot.

Tip from sarah rub a cut onion on the skin.

Tip from Rebecca, spray degreaser on the skin.

Tip from Josh, swallowing sweetened condensed milk helps due to the high sugar and fat content.

Tip from Thankyou, rubbing Gaviscon on the affected skin helps. From my own experience, Gaviscon works well for normal gastric or indigestion too.

Pass on the solution through email, Facebook, whatever – share the relief!

Evidence Act a saboteur’s dream come true
  • Scott Thong
  • 4:21PM Jun 19, 2012

If the newly-amended Evidence Act is all that the media reports make it out to be, then its many loopholes and oversights will be a source of more evil than good.

Do the crafters of the amendment really have so little idea as to how the Internet really works?

First as many have already noted, it is all too easy to hack or impersonate someone’s account and post offensive material under his or her name.

What is to stop unscrupulous persons from starting unauthorised blogs or Twitter accounts under the name of a rival businessman, politician or even competitor for a girl’s affections?

In fact, these days it’s as easy as waiting for a co-worker you dislike to leave his smartphone unattended for a short while, and then using it to issue death threats against the boss!

Meanwhile, it will be all too difficult for the sabotaged person to prove that he did not actually post those remarks himself.

Has the government so quickly forgotten their little spat with hacker group Anonymous? When the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) announced they were banning several file-sharing sites back in June 2011, Anonymous responded by hacking into government websites and defacing them.

It was the most that the government could do to claim ‘victory’ since the damage was easily reversible.

But what if hacking ends up having far longer lasting, deeper reaching repercussions, courtesy of the Evidence Act?

Imagine if after the Act lands an innocent blogger in hot water, the accounts of several prominent persons – say, an outspoken former prime minister’s blog, or the current home minister’s Twitter feed – inexplicably call for mass racial and religious violence.

Will the Evidence Act then be applied in a similar manner, without prejudice between well-connected politicians and resourceless laypersons?

(By the way, just to clarify: This is a logical prediction, not a threat. Also, for the answer to the above question, see the anecdote about Teresa Kok below.)

Second, I am vehemently against the caveat that gives blog owners little or no recourse when offensive comments are posted on their sites.

If it is easy enough for even unskilled persons to hack or hijack an account, it is even easier to sabotage someone’s blog or social website.

………
Third and most importantly, all the above casual/disorganised attacks pale in comparison to what a well-organised, well-connected operation could do.

If a lone, disgruntled netizen can cause so much havoc as I described above, then what about an individual or organisation that has the resources and manpower to launch a mass undermining of their enemies – complete with hired professional hacking?

And what if they have undue influence over law enforcement and the courts?

In the past years, already many bloggers and new media journalists critical of the government have been hauled up for allegedly ‘seditious’ remarks. In many of these cases, the accused’s computer is also confiscated to ‘assist’ in investigations.

Who is to say that the computer – with all its personal, private data and already logged-in user accounts – could not be used to add further ‘evidence’ against the accused?

……….At the very same time, Sin Chew reporter Tan Hoon Cheng was also arrested under the ISA – but instead for truthfully reporting on Ahmad Ismail’s seditious, racist ‘pendatang’ remarks!

Meanwhile, Utusan Melayu’s reporters and editors were not hauled up for their defamatory and untruthful smears – just as they constantly get away with fantasising about murdering opposition members, throwing slurs and ugly stereotypes at Indians, and accusing Christians of plotting the overthrow of the country. Ahmad Ismail also got away proud and unbowed, in fact more combative than ever!

In conclusion, the end result we can expect is that freedom of speech, freedom of the media and the truth itself will be squashed – directly through baseless arrests of bloggers and tweeters, and indirectly through intimidating others into closing their accounts before they end up sabotaged too.

Think about it, would any Bersih rally have been organised – or truthful accounts of the peaceful rallies vs brutal police tactics made known to the public – if social media were already abandoned by fearful citizens?

So to those who support the poorly conceived parts of the Evidence Act, know that you will have no one to run crying to – no right to complain! – when you end up on the receiving end yourselves.

Evidence Act a saboteur’s dream come true
