Lies and Leaders

Bloggers are actually now a very powerful force globally and locally. Through blogging opinions and news can be easily distributed to the masses. Added to that the ability to discuss blog content on a mass scale very quickly surely speaks volumes. Traditional medium cannot compare to blogs in some ways. Although blogs have not really brought sweeping changes worldwide we are seeing a trend that blogs will bring democracy to the next level.

But here we still have a politician who slanders bloggers especially women bloggers accusing us as liars and traitors. In a statement yesterday, published in Sin Chiew, the Tourism Minsiter Tunku Adnan lashed that all bloggers on the Internet are liars, out of which 80% are unemployed women.

“All bloggers are liars, they cheat people using all kinds of methods. From my understanding, out of 10,000 unemployed bloggers, 8,000 are women.”

“Bloggers like to spread rumours, they don’t like national unity. Today our country has achievements because we are tolerant and compromising. Otherwise we will have civil war. "

Why must our leaders allow such detrimental generalisations be spewed? Obviously we RANDTSers are not liars or traitors. I also wonder why sexist politicians persist with their nonsense without being rebuked by our leaders.

We have achieved so much after existing as nation for half a century. I truly believe blogging will bring our country to greater heights.

    Lies and leaders,
    Like Roses and thorns,
    If you try to grab them,
    Your fingers get torn...

    Should I show what I'm made of?

    He is right though if it wasn't for our tolerant behavior he would've been thrown out of office by now...

    What an idiot. Why is he blaming women only. Did he actually conduct a research?

    I quote " From my understanding...". What does he understand anyway?

    I get carried away sometimes...

    albert, when you mention that blogging may bring our country to greater heights, what do you mean by that? if you don't mind, can you elaborate more on that? (cos i have english assignment about blogging and i don't seem to be able to collect enough information) sorry for the trouble...

    Blogging is the pinnacle of democracy as everybody will be heard in blogs. Blogging with it's open nature forces the government to be more transparent and efficient because censorship of sensitive facts is difficult. With everybody being heard the government will feel the pressure to take action.

    That's just the gist.

    [esther]: When is the dateline for your assignment? I could post something about blogging tomorrow.

    "transparency"- i am beginning to understand that term now. my dateline is probably two weeks from now if i'm not mistaken. i'm having my holidays (1 week) at the moment.
