Mat Rempit and transvestite will soon be missing from Malaysian movies and television as instructed by the Communication and Culture Ministry.
Does this mean movies like Tootsie and Mrs. Doubtfire will be banned?
When will Grandpa Rais Yatim realise that surpressing a negative influence will only make it more popular and desirable or be subtituted with something even worse?
When will Grandpa Rais Yatim realise that these negative sub-cultures can only be prevented by introducing and encouraging a positive counter culture?
When will Grandpa Rais Yatim realise that he is not fit for the job? He is too old-fashioned to understand today's youth.
We don't need a Grandpa to tell us what we can and cannot watch. We already have other Grandpas and Grandmas in Lembaga Penapisan Filem who banned scenes like the pointing of gun to the head and the open display of armpits.
Even though we have no say on the decisions made be these Grandpas and Grandmas, I guess we have time on our side. We'll just wait till they die and pass the torch to the Uncles and Aunties.
Unfortunately they bred the Uncles and Aunties to think like them so it won't make a difference.
And then they complain about how kids nowadays like to follow western influences.
When Grandpa banned Porn, we made 3GPs. When Granpa banned malay Hantus, we watched Korean Hantus. When Grandpa banned excessive violence, we buy Unrated Rambo 3 in 1 set DVD at Pasar Malams.
When Grandpa banned Mat Rempits and Mak Nyah from appearing in television, there will be more Mat Rempits and Mak Nyah that we don't need to turn on our television to see them anymore. We will have Rempit kids and Mak Nyah nephews living in our homes!
What will Grandpa ban next? Hip hop artistes who raps about women? I would like to see Grandpa giving his grandson Caprice The Talk.
Thank You Grandpa for your priceless Wisdom!
