It is a shame to note that Malaysians, from both sides of the political divide, are not able to engage in a meaningful and civilised debate.
Some Malaysians tend to equate name calling/harsh language/profanity to a discourse/debate. If we cannot even learn how to agree or disagree rationally how are going to expect this nation to progress or move forward even if there is a regime change?
A Pakatan Rakyat blog, which is probably run by a supporter, has reacted harshly to both Dr Malcolm Puthucherry and my post defending Malcolm's right to criticize PR's defacto leader on his less than convincing justification for not establishing a showdow cabinet.
The post called Malcolm a "smelly drunken beggar" and me a "prostitute" for giving Malaysian voters nightmares.
First, the voters are not stupid and they are not the ones having nightmares but the same cannot be said for PR leaders/candidates if their supporters continue to behave this way.
I expect the blog to take down the post as a courtesy and a good example.
