The REMOTE-CONTROLLED newspaper always plays up to UMNO's tune...

Do you remember, dear ER -- Rakyat Malaysia, you mudah lupa ke? -- how topgun of the Star Wong Chun Wai, described PKR president DS Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as a "remote-controlled" politician when she last contested the Kajang by-election? What the former GEIC and now MD of the bestselling English print daily meant was that Kak Wan was the proxy for her husband SDR DS ANWAR IBRAHIM -- who was disqualified from contesting because the powers-that-be played dirty in forwarding an Appeal Court hearing on Sodomy 2 to find the Opposition Leader guilty in a fast-tracked hearing, handing down a "guilty" verdict, all over in TWO LONG DAYS! 

Did the Star topguns give the Opposition wakil rakyat any benefit of the doubt when Human Righhts are curtailed (Read my immediate precedent post...) by protesting the East Malaysian state stopping a PKR leader from entering the state?

Well, they give plenty of benefit of doubt and generosity of heart to their UMNO counterparts,SO STOP LABRELLING OTHERS AS "REMOTE CONTROLLED" when you are the ones guilty of such charges. "ENJOY" your comrades playing the bodekism fiddle, again and again! ~~ YL, Desi, knottyaSsusual

Chew: Do not get upset by some Umno members’ extreme speeches

GEORGE TOWN: Umno works for the interest of all races, so the rakyat should not be upset by the speeches of certain Umno members that came across as extreme, says Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun.
The MCA vice-president said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s winding-up speech at Saturday’s Umno general assembly showed that he was committed to work for the betterment of the country’s multi-ethnic society.
Najib knows very well he was the Prime Minister for all, she said.
“His direction in steering Barisan is clear,” she said.
“However, in a big party like Umno, sometimes there could be members whose extreme statements are misconstrued as the party’s stand,” she pointed out.
“The public should not be too disturbed by such speeches,” she told reporters after opening a Goods and Services Tax (GST) seminar, organised by Penang MCA and SME Penang yesterday.
At the general assembly, delegate Datuk Mohd Zaidi Mohd Said was quoted by an online news portal as saying that the Chinese in Penang had gained wealth and power through vices such as gambling and prostitution.
His remarks were found to be offensive by some.
Mohd Zaidi, when contacted, said he would call for a press conference today to address the matter.
Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng urged the police to investigate Mohd Zaidi for criminal defamation and sedition.
He said police reports would be lodged against the Permatang Pauh Umno division chief over his offensive remark, adding that it “is necessary to defend the dignity of the people of Penang”.
“His allegation is an attack on Penang police as it implied that the force had allowed such lawlessness or illegal activities to exist,” he said in a statement.
