Bung Mokhtar Claims Sexual Harassment

The sexist Kinabatangan MP Bung Mokhtar Radin who is targeted by women’s groups for his uncouth remarks about women drivers, says he is being sexually harassed (The Sun, March 31, 2011, p 01). Is he stupid or what? Maybe his brain is already turdified? Maybe, someone who is as ventose as him, only knows how to ejaculate insolent gibberish in order to vilify women? Will Sabahans please wise up and eject him from Parliament when the time comes?

Now the Chinese are claiming that “Interlok” is racist, according to yesterday’s report in The Malaysian Insider. The novel depicted the Chinese characters as greedy, opium-smoking lechers keen to exploit Malays for profit. Chinese associations have issued a statement that says “Interlok” propagates the ideology of ketuanan Melayu. In our considered opinion, this novel is not only unhealthy but an insidious poison”.

If a novel that is going to be used as a school text can generate so much unhappiness, then the government should have just disowned this book and adopted another! Why allow so much altercation in the first place?

And the Bible Society of Malaysia (BSM) has broken the impasse between the Christian community and an insensitive government by collecting all 5,000 copies of the Alkitab, which was detained by the Home Ministry in Port Klang since March 20, 2009. BSM said last night that it was doing so to prevent “further acts of desecration” against the holy texts. Now, will Christians tell the government in no uncertain terms what they think of them through the ballot box? It is time to stand up to their bullying!
