Bakar Utusan Tanda Biadap?

KUALA LUMPUR 23 Mac - Seorang penyokong kerajaan hari ini menyifatkan tindakan orang Melayu membakar akhbar Utusan Malaysia baru-baru ini sebagai perbuatan paling biadab terhadap bangsanya sendiri.

Datuk Mohamed Aziz (BN-Sri Gading) berkata, sejak ditubuhkan pada 1939, Utusan Melayu telah memainkan peranan amat penting iaitu bertindak sebagai suara orang Melayu dalam proses menuntut kemerdekaan selain menjadi organ perubahan kaum itu.

''Kepada orang Melayu yang membakar akhbar Utusan Malaysia beberapa minggu lalu, sedarkah bahawa perbuatan mereka ini paling biadab kepada kaum Melayu.

Really?

Wow. So you're telling me that burning a Utusan is a gesture of insolence towards the malay race?

Really?

If that is so, I'm guilty of desecrating my own race a few thousand times. I've used Utusan Malaysia to burn charcoal, flame bonfires and even used it to wipe my ass during emergencies (no clean water in the forest while camping)

I also commited treason to my own race by selling Utusan Malaysia to chinese paper recycling vans. (Kaw kaw ko chi, paper lama!)

I get the symbolism revolving this furor but Utusan Malaysia IS NOT a bona fide symbol of malayu. It is a newspaper co-owned by UMNO and spreads news with BN leanings. It is a UMNO propaganda machine. Almost all newspapers are propaganda machines.

Utusan Malaysia -UMNO
Sinaran -PKR
Harakah -PAS
MCA -The Star

If I slam UMNO, does this mean that I am being disrespectful to malays? If I hantam PAS, I am a murtad?

Sheesh. Kalau bakar satay adakah saya anti-satay?

I looking for that article, I can't remember where I put it.

I've got this article from Dialogue Magazine published by the US state department. I think it is available at the UIAM Library. I am thinking of a publication circa 1989-1990.

It talks about the First Amendment and the Constitution of The United States (Freedom of Speech). We are going back to the Menara Issue.

Now, anybody has a Right to Express their Opinion. True is you don't like the news, turn of the TV.

But still an Act, an Expression- nothing means anything to anyone save for the perception and meaning the listener gives to it. But it must be noted even the Actor and Expressor gives meaning to his expression or act. Or wants people to perceive fromm such exppression or act.

Having said that back to this article in the Dialogue Magazine...

The issue was the burning of the Flag of the USA.

In one situation an army officer died in war and his body was brought home. As the plane landed, Flags were lowered at half mast and somebody burned a flag mourning the passing of a great soldier and signifying that the nation wept for the soldier.

On the other side of the coin their was a flag burning ceremony in protest of the participation of the USA Soldiers in the Afghan War. Why were soldiers dying for some else's war.

So you see someone can burn a flag in pride or in protest.

I guess it should not be what the Member of Parliament perceived the Newspaper burning to be rather than in what situation was the Newspaper Burnt and what the Public Perception was supposed to be for the Actor or Expressor.

N Cest Pas?

Why Orang Melayu bakar Utusan Malaysia kenapa ya.

Utusan Malaysia tu surat kahbar Melayu yang konservatif. Bermula Melayu menuntut kemerdekaan.

Utusan Malaysia penuh dgn artikel ugama Islam.

So bakar UM bermakna ada Melayu dah tak kisah Islam lagi.
So it means UM tak menarik Melayu lagi.

Penggunaan rencana ugama untuk menarik pembaca dan mempengaruhi mereka tak lagi relevan. Buat bungkus nasi lemak je..

Melayu tak mahu dikaitkan dengan Islam lagi sebab itu mereka sanggup bakar UM. Harakah tak dibakar sebab tak ada orang baca pun.

Penuntut universiti sekarang tenguk puki tiap hari kat internet.
Tenguk orang kongkek tiap malam. Mana mereka minat Utusan Malaysia lagi. Editor UM tak boleh mengharap simpati Melayu. You must lead or the people you want to lead will go elsewhere where they can enjoy guilt free porn.

Penulis UM kenalah cari artikel yang menarik pembaca. Atau bergantung sajalah pada mereka yang suka point of view mereka je.

UM burn said...

An interesting post that Utusan Malaysia should analyse. In a way Utusan Malaysia has become jumud as PAS.

Almost the same reason why Malays left UMNO is the reason why Malays youngters left Utusan. Too old timer and too much nasihat.

Too many old women writers in the entertainment. Too many tudung wearing women writers.

Too many conservative Malays..just cannot attract the urban hip, internet crowd. Islam just dont attract people like Ritz Chewan or gay students like Afiq Deen.

They are more interested in liberal lifestyles admiring the kafirs American rather than the Arabs.

So there thats why Malay burn UM. But of course UM has the right to propose their lifestyle. Just dont be surprised more and more Malays dont follow them anymore..

Maybe a page 3 braless girl might perkup the readership. Or male model?
