Sakmongkol AK47 on the inane responses to Bersih 2.0

Technorati tags: , , , ,

Ready for another Sak-attack? Well, Walski for one always looks forward to what Datuk Ariff Sabri - aka Sakmongkol AK47 - has to say. And this time Sakmongkol AK47 gives his no-holds barred view of the silly way many of his party brethren, and UMNO-wish-they-weres like Ibrahim Ali, have responded to Bersih 2.0.

Walski has only clipped part of the article, and you should do yourself a big favor and read the rest of it.

This present government has developed one distinguishing characteristic not unlike the previous administration. If the previous administration was maligned as being uninspiring and sleeping through its job, this present government isn't that far from being similarly aspersed. How so?

It has shown it has a knack of being inept at handling small shocks to the system. Many of us for example are not supporters of Anwar Ibrahim, but the manner the government handles the Anwar affairs- whether it's the sodomy 2 charge or the recent video clip showing a person resembling Anwar in a sexual tryst, the administration has shown its ineptness and incompetence.

In the video clip affair for example, people see the court as being a manipulated instrument to serve the interest of the siting government. The court has allowed itself to be the pulpit for making political statements; lawyers representing the three people accused of possession and distribution or broadcasting pornographic material, used that occasion to declare the authenticity of the video and its main actor. How was it relevant and moreover we heard it through a secondary source- i.e. regurgitation from the defense lawyers. That become hearsay evidence and can be contested.
