Namewee and Patriotism

Malaysian student Namewee or Wee Meng Chee's latest parody of the national anthem has been severely criticised by politicians. Wee has come under fire for mocking the national anthem and making statements many found offensive because they contained racial slurs.

Wee, a 24-year-old mass communications student at Ming Chuan University in Taiwan, has insisted that he is patriotic. “I wrote the song in conjunction with the country’s 50th anniversary of independence and it is my gift to the country,” the Johorean said.

Deputy Internal Security Minister Johari Baharum said police would investigate the rap video while MCA Youth chief Datuk Liow Tiong Lai said Wee had insulted the national anthem.

I have seen the video found on YouTube.com and did not find any evidence that Wee had insulted the national anthem. In fact, Wee was trying to drive us a point. If we are patriotic citizens of the country then we should work hard to eradicate corruption, racism, nepotism and all other ills.

The tune of national anthem sets a background of our collective responsibility to our beloved country.

I am surprised that Liow said that Wee had insulted the national anthem. Liow should instead demand that UMNO takes action against their own delegates who had made seditious, violent and racist remarks and gestures at the party's annual assembly last year.

Wee speaks the truth and it is the truth that hurts people like Johari Baharum and Liow Tiong Lai.

Kay Peng,

1)请问明志在镜头里所指的是国阵、腐败马来人、还是所有马来人的错?国阵滥用政权,人人皆知,可是请问这可牵累到所有马来人的错吗?

2)请问在里头侮辱回教的礼拜方式,有何评论?

3)回教党本是反对党,国阵绝对不会援助支持回教党的马来人,请问针对此事有何看法?许多人认为政府只会帮助所有的马来人,至于回教党里的马来人没有得到政府的援助,如何?

4)国歌本是属于人民忠国的象征,请问明志为什么不使用巫统歌曲来创作讽刺呢?

1. I find the song entertaining and not in any conceivable way insulting the King, the government, the national anthem, the country, its people or even the police.

2. Politicians should back off this one because it leaves a bad taste in the mouths of Malaysian not unlike its previous anti-Eurasian stand

3. I think Mr. Liow couldn't even comprehend let alone bother with the questions posed above. Attacking a university student is not only easier but he gets more media attention as well. I bet he thought it was less controversial as well! Lets prove him wrong.

University student

aiyaa you are migrants.. so how can you have the feelings of hurt!

Khoo Kay Peng said...

Yes Melayu Raya,

You are a migrant too. But unlike other human beings, you don't have any feeling at all.

I called you a fool, a racist, and an idiot but you are still very happy.

Good for you ma...

You make me feel damn happy because I can insult your intelligence.

It is not my style to hurl insults and my religion forbids me to do it. And I dont take offence from yella dogs and pigs like you, after all they are just animals. Ahah..I am sure you'll now rebut by saying dogs and pigs have feelings too?

Khoo Kay Peng said...

No lah, Bumi Celup Jawa. The dogs and pigs are a notch better than you. You are now exposed not only as a fake bumi but also a fake muslim.

You said your religion doesn't allow you to hurl insults, but you are insulting some animals that have better intelligence and a higher EQ compared to you.

Mana boleh lar? Not good ma, after the God is angry..how lar?

So easy for you to be deceived of my ancestry. And now you are also an expert in animal intelligence, even know how to measure your fellow pig's EQ? Its ok , after you are just another nuthead. But your last statement bothered me, making fun of God ehh? must be your budism upbringing. OK, I shouldnt waste my time with this nuthead , vamoos to your motherland and bring along your chinese school too ok!

Khoo Kay Peng said...

Bumi Celup,

God is very matured la. Don't worry, He will only laugh at your stupidity. You are making fun of Buddhism too. But we Buddhists are peaceful people. We know a fool when we see one.

Eh, you really forgot your roots huh? I thought you were calling someone opposite the Malacca Straits your brothers.

Kita sama-sama balik kampung dong? Why so ashamed to be associated with your rumpun polynesian?

No prob man they are my brothers

Khoo Kay Peng said...

Of course they are your brothers. At last you are willing to admit your roots.

Phew!

Never deny and never will :) but I am not 'pure' malay and regretably neither my father from java, I cant change that. But you pl admit that you are just a pendatang, and so behave yourself or I'll get MCA to apologise to us

Khoo Kay Peng said...

Readers,

Out from the horse's mouth: Read "I am not pure Malay..."

There, his is unmasked and still wants to deny that he is a pendatang.

A black eye for you huh, Bumi Celup?

Wahh xingkek where you learn write Malay ahh. Chinese school standard lar

chansey said...

Are you Jawi, Cina, Melayu, India, Bugis?

Or are you MALAYSIAN?

God gave us different skin colors so we know who's who, not so we know who's stupid or evil.

Khay Peng, leave the issue as it is - you aren't proving anything to this guy. Say any more and you prove that you're no better than him.

chansey said...

sorry, got your name wrong. darn keyboard.

Khoo Kay Peng said...

Chansey,

I do not need to prove anything to anybody. These cybertroopers or cyberscumbs are paid to post racist and brainless statements on our weblog and we do not have the luxury of time to edit them.

What I intended to do is to unmask him and to prove that his employers are taking an action that will back fire on them.

My thoughts and deeds are more important to many people than the method I used to handle these cybertroopers. It will not be a yardstick of who I am and what I am worth. So, I am not too concerned of what you are going to think of me.

Said enough. Move on. The main point is they can intimidate other bloggers but not me, not Straight Talk.

KuKupigg's ego growing too big even to his fellow pigglets. This is the kind of person who boycots Malay restaurant call names on Malays by calling them UMNOPutra or attempt to segregate the Malays by calling Jawa celup etc and claims he is not racist. This fool is exposed of his true self - his hatred of Malays but camouflaged under UMNOPutra guise or NEP abuse when there is none or too minor to bother that cannot be rectified easily.
