VOXPOP 'They do not understand that human rights and justice is not something to be made fun off. They have failed as comedians.'
Comedians poke fun at Bersih in parody sketches
Tell the Truth: When the nation is in crisis, we have village idiots clowning about something that is seriously wrong with the nation.
To the comedians, I sincerely hope that your children and grandchildren will not be the butt of your comedies because they may be living in a bankrupt nation which is stripped bare by the Umnoputras.
Worse is when those Indonesians who have been given citizenship begin to take over the business and finance of the country. And they are capable because they are much more hardworking than some of the locals.
Then you can make another comedy about that. I think you don't realise what deep shit Malaysia is in.
Fairnessforall: If the police shoot and kill these comedians' brothers and sisters or parents, then we would see how they make a joke out of it.
There is nothing funny about these idiots who call themselves comedians who do not know what comedy is all about.
People should boycott these idiots, then they will learn their lesson. They do not understand that human rights and justice is not something to be made fun off. They have all failed as comedians.
Onyourtoes: If these ‘comedians' want to create jokes and parodies, there are a great deal more on the Umno-BN side. But did I always say there are whores in every profession.
Bender: These people are perfect examples of those who eat scraps from Umno's banquet table. They would do anything to get those crumbs while the politicians are laughing at the rakyat. But let's not worry about these jesters.
People who watch and adore them are those who cannot think for themselves. They prefer to stuff their brains with useless junk instead of thinking about what is happening to this country, and doing something about it.
In other words, they are the Umno kind of people. So, no matter what you do or say to these people, nothing will ever get to them except these no-brainer stuff.
Blind Freddo: Are Malaysians so insecure that they have to accept that because the government didn't like what happened on 428 (April 28), they must all feel miserable and guilt ridden, and that it must be wrong?
428 was a proud day in the history of Malaysia. It was the third time that Malaysians have rallied together to support a justifiable and objective cause.
Within an atmosphere of bigotry, submission, lies, half-truths, hysteria and corruption, 428 is the first time in a long, long time that Malaysians have shown an integrity of their own making.
Kumara: Isn't the comedian Afdlin Shauki the one who joined Umno with a big fanfare? He will sell his soul for the right price.
Lim Chong Leong: These are not comedians but monkeys in clown suits. Comedy has to be intelligent and witty. This does not qualify. It is more like slapstick banana-peel three stooges nonsense.
Fair&Just: They are part of the same group that want unfair and dirty elections so as to continue their rent-seeking, ‘ketuanan' and parasitic ways, and the only excuse is the nonsensical loss of business which in reality is the opposite, as Bersih 3.0 in KL was peaceful and business in the vicinity was very good because of it.
This so-called satire is of a low standard and quality similar to the norm of mediocrity in ‘Bolehland'. In the end it will be, he who laughs last laughs best.
Anonymous #30887039: Some of them may be the BN candidates for the coming elections. You'll never know, considering the fact that there are so many comedians in our cabinet.
'Let brutality victims do balai to balai search as well'
Gobsmacked: I agree with Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng. So far the official version is that Bersih is to blame for the chaos that ensued. No heed has been paid to evidence of brutality by the police. How one sided can those in authority get?
Their aim is obfuscation. They just throw in a lot of noise, opinions and baseless accusations from all and sundry so as to confuse the issue. Let us be steadfast.
The point of the matter is that Bersih wants clean and fair elections. This demand is well supported by the appearance of more than 100,000 citizens (of all ages and races) who were courageous enough to take to the streets.
Let the ruling party ignore this at its own peril. Public institutions have to be strong and independent. They are too pro-Umno and do not enjoy the confidence of the public.
Umno appears to now rely on the police and dares not say a word against them. Umno and the police appear to be desperately propping up each other up. Are we turning into a police state?
Our democracy is in grave danger. We have to stand firm.
Q: Such a challenge as Lim Lip Eng's would be accepted by fair government. However, the PDRM is controlled by corrupt, arrogant, self-centred, heartless and brainless politicians. They will do anything to protect their interests.
Jesse: What about the police, uniformed and plainclothed, who had deliberately beaten up innocent citizens?
People with pictures should post these policemen's photos on Facebook so that they can be identified, since so many had deliberately removed their name tags.
Those involved are official thugs and a disgrace to the force. Perhaps Suaram should coordinate the identification of police law breakers since the sleeping home minister is not interested in discovering the truth.
Samba: I have two issues. First, I'm not sure if they were police as anyone wearing a police outfit got a free go at the public. No badge, no number or name. How can we accept them as police and obey their direction? They could be anyone.
Second, if they call themselves police, then fine. Let's look for them in the Klang valley. Name and shame each and everyone of them in a dedicated Facebook page. I'm sure we have enough humanpower to do that.
No one is above the rakyat. No one will ever be. We rule. It's our country. I was born here and I'll die here. Allow us to choose the right leader, one whom we can trust.
