Liar, Liar - "Kebinatangan" Hands afire!!!

"Go to Hell!",
"You tak suka, Keluar!",
"Racist", "wayar putuih", "Saya tak takut","I don't know",
"It's FITNAH, Slander, Dirty Politics, gutter politics!"
Don't believe the lies that bloggers or the media prints ..... "they're all liars, rumor-mongers, and slanderers"
These are just words expected of our good clean leaders - and all, strangely come from only one side of the divide!.
That's fine - so let's recap our "our clean political culture".......

But by far, this following clip was the most hilarious of all!

9 May 2007 - "Where's the leak? The Batu Gajah MP leaks every month too," Bung said referring to DAP representative of the constituency, Fong Po Kuan

That was the past ..... moving on to the present :-
However, Bung Mokhtar told TheSun outside the House that he did not make the gesture, described as the ‘palm hitting a clenched fist’.

Bung Mokhtar Radin (Kinabatangan-BN) today did a U-turn, admitting that he had made an obscene gesture in the Dewan Rakyat yesterday during a dispute with some Pakatan Rakyat MPs.Yes, I did it, but it (the gesture) is not what it means. Everybody has their own perception and it is not rude and it is not what people think it is,” he said when met in the Parliament lobby.

MCPXes, I did it, but it (the gesture) is not what it means. Everybody has their own perception and it is not rude and it is not what people think it is,” he said when met in the Parliament lobby.


It's almost "deja vu" -Reminds me of Adnan Yakob's "sleight of hand" some time back (refer to image above).

"Repent You Shameful man" screamed the headlines of Malaysiakini refering to Mr. Bung (pronounced not as in "bang", but "boong", okay) ..... but what do you do, when "some people" are Shame-less - and don't have these very human characteristic of shame?
Maybe they can go for boot-camps, wash plates and learn some etiquette & "leadership skills" - but hey, maybe that's where they learnt these things, under the one who bred them!
Anyways, in Malaysia, they become "leaders" - these guys all have become chief representatives of one group or other in the the ruling parties/ government!
(Mr. Bung is I believe the chairman of the BN BBC, right?)

They lie very openly and refuse to apologise, or even pretend that their behaviour "means something else" and that "it is not what people think it is"!!!
They seem to believe that they are somewhat 'misunderstood' when they do these things- but when the opposition do or say things thats hardly 'offensive" by any standards - and then suddenly .... it isn't our culture!!!

Have any of them been taken to task?
I doubt it - if anything, they were only rewarded with influential posts and more power. On the other hand, maybe they "hold others at ransom"!
Actually the denials upon denials and then the admission of "Kebinatangan" appears to be in line with the culture of "flipping & flopping", among quite a few prominent personalities of late. That's "in our culture", according to these cultural experts!
We all know who bred the "dogs", and who "let the dogs out" - and I'm quite certain Pak Lah is doing a good job at putting them on a leash, after taking over from the chief breeder himself.

Just hope some "prominent 'opinion-leading' bloggers" don't call for a blog-strike in disgust! (whatever that means)
Their blogging on things may make these "leaders" smarter - forget about the general public (compared to these imbeciles, the public are really geniuses ....).
Though chances are slim for any success,
who knows- when you're "prominent personality" taken note of by the MSM & all, it may be worth an effort ;-)
Check out this hilarious clip:-

The "Music" of Carburettor Dung

Nope - no "blog-strike" here ..... I don't indulge in childish political agendas, or claim to represent people I don't know.
Those who think they do - let them be "perasan".
[Sorrylah Rocky & Marina - I don't think you are entitled to "represent bloggers" in the MSM in this case. I thought it was an unjustified, shameful & pathetic attempt at buttering certain people, while discrediting & drawing ridicule upon the blogging community - you guys better come clean on this.
After all, we Malaysians need self-proclaimed "smart bloggers" with weak stomachs for the can-o-worms,
to keep us out of the dark ages :-P]

The political mudslinging recently reached fever pitch .....
Taking a break from the Nazri spin, Altantuya, SDs, Denial SOPs, Missing PIs (under duress) and Sodo Mee Fevers that has gripped the nation, here's some Carburettor Dung-tertaiment.
Since I had a good laugh at their expense, in all fairness - here's a videoclip of their performance in JB (the sound on camera isn't too good, butt!).


True - they definitely don't have to apologize. They only did what they normally do.
It probably is a feather in their cap - they did evoke plenty of "energy and anger" (albeit, of the wrong kind) at the rally!
Couldn't say the same for the organizers of the rally, though ...

Hey man - I never said they weren't good in their own way.
It does have a good beat to it. Definitely not for my mellowed-down, "middle-aged" and "respectable:-P" palate/ ear, though - 20yrs ago when I used to be "into it", maybe.
Yep - they're quite okay, and have their own fans in the UG circuit.
Pretty peaceful crowd too (despite all the "energy") at JB- but I seriously doubt that they'd gel with the crowd that turned up at Kelana Jaya Stadium ...

However, I still think it was a major "F-up" on Sham's part to have featured them at a political rally which is meant for the general public (which includes kids and the "ultra conservatives). It definitely cannot be deemed as "suitable entertaiment" for the "Protes" event, which is more mainstream .... although it would be a good idea to get the UG, upstream/downstream headbanging crowd to be part of the movement towards national political consciousness.

These guys usually thrive on being "anti-establishment", no matter what - they don't want to be "mainstream". They like being "rebels" (even if it is without a cause). Their events are meant for a niche" crowd, suited for those sentiments.
Being "politically incorrect" is their trademark!
It's sad that Sham Rais and the event organisers don't seem to understand that. Just becos they are "anti-establishment", it doesn't mean that they "gel" with the sentiments of the general public at such events.
Sounds like the organizers didn't have their pulse on the people in this case .... it just shows the detachment.
Anyway, although I'm not exactly "conservative", I'd be horrified, should a 10yr-old kid takes a liking to this UG culture, without knowing what it stands for ...

Their name still does tickle the funny bone in me though ....
"Carburettor DUNG" - what a name .... but it does kinda "grow on you"?!
