Don’t Cha??

I was flipping through today’s NST when I saw this. On Prime News section page 6:

‘No plan to call student back’

Check out the last paragraph.

‘Namawee was also said to have given the impression that the police force was corrupt and civil servants were slow in serving the people.‘Well, is that new for you? He just echoed what we said all this while. Ask any Malaysians out there. Go to the street, I bet my ass they share the same opinion. Oh, actually I think he did make a mistake. It should be ‘the police force IS corrupt and civil servants ARE slow in serving the people AND JUST AS CORRUPT. Right? Don’t you think so? Don’t Cha?

p/s: man.. I am thinking to do a satirical Don’t Cha song about things Malaysians talk about all the time… but of course I am just not that talented as that Muar guy, so I spare you guys… 🙂

updated : Those of you that simply joining in for some bashing, go here for some reading. Do you really understand what his song about? Negaruku bashing? Come on… Which part of his song? Negaraku-ku? 🙂 Hmm…. I wonder if I am a big fan of Felix Mendelssohn song’s Mamula Moon and I sing it out loud.. consider insulting ke? 😛

    since the very beginning it was like that, maybe he just realized that now .. or maybe he refuse to realize it until now

    It’s one thing to know that something is wrong, one thing to be brave enough to acknowledge that it is wrong and another thing to actually do something about it. In this case, he was the latter…but one mistake was that he used the national song. I admit,he’s got talent…but to use the national song??? That’s just something one doesn’t do lah. If he had used another song or completely came up with a purely 100% original piece,I don’t think he’d be in trouble as how he is now…shoulda woulda coulda…he was looking for trouble when he used THAT song in particular.

    he never do anything to the national song. only the title he put it as negaruku-ku. that’s all. he never insult negaraku song in his ‘masterpiece’. c’mon the bigger issue here is the issue he tried to brought up, not the negaruku song itself. blatant patriotism i will say. that’s why i say generally malaysians tend to sidetrack from the real issue. harping on shits rather than the real one.

    oh yea, i see people insult negaraku song every day. midnite 12, rtm will play the song on tv. any of you farking stand straight to show your respect? hmmmpfffttt!! as i said before true patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else. flying flags etc. just plasticky gimmick, childish concept of patriotism.

    hahaha… dont cha indeed.

    i tot they were going to strip his citizenship? he is like the silent national hero…. where no one will dare to support him openly.

    just like your ex-colleague, the unsung hero that try to talk to the boss on behalf of you guys zewt? and nobody supported him? 🙂

    guys, those of you that never really go and figure out what his song was about go here. I hope you can understand Bahasa Malaysia aka Bahasa Melayu since you guys so patriotic heh? 🙂

    It’s still wrong…regardless he didn’t insult the song but just editing that song…just wrong. And the message in his version, although was not something new, made it worse. If only he didn’t use that song.(like the other guy zewt linked before – he used his own song and he’s not in trouble rite?)

    As for patriotism, I wont answer on behalf of anyone else but as for me, I may not stand still when I hear the national song in the middle of the night, but when I do sing it, I sing it with my whole heart and in respect and I am proud of my nationality, my country, its song, its flag, etc…eventhough I am not the most patriotic person out there, there IS patriotism in me and to do what he did…is just inthinkable.

    well you are entitled to your opinion 🙂 yes i see SOME patriotism is you.. yeah.. like when you said you will not register to vote.. 🙂 oh the guy apologized, guess everyone is happy now, and we can move on.. business like usual. Hurray!!

    sounds quite true to me right…. and that guy with the negaraku song is totally nuts! it clearly show, you can run and hide in any country in the world but we are still bound to our Malaysian laws and freedom of speech crap!!!

    p/s: just got my new digital cam. come check it out…. got new pics too

    We will always be bound to the Malaysian laws and freedom of speech as long as we hold a Malaysian passport and a Malaysian Identification Card. You cannot escape that, in my opinion unless you neutralize as a citizen of another country, then you are free provided you are outside Malaysia. Returning to NameWee case, I think instead of highlighting so much on the song, why not focus on what he is trying to highlight to our people who I’d say, sleeping in their nice comfortable bed. This, I consider his morning call to all those who are still sleeping peacefully. Time to wake up, my dear Malaysians!!

    i wonder will he come back after he finishes his studies ? hehe..

    and the debate continues.. is he the devil or the saint….? ha ha

    Regards to the “muarian”. He just highlighted the truth and obviously it was not welcomed well by the others. I dont see any harm as utusan has also published very racial articles. That being a national paper. And malay fools who keep saying its ur country and askin the rest to go back ..please get ur history right. Unless of course you are not capable of comprehending too many facts at the same time.

    sad to say, closer to celebrating 50th year of independence, the divide between races is wider, the unity is not as strong as before. everyone become more malay, more chinese and more indian.. yes, truth is hard to swallow here in malaysia. we only like the sweet, good news although it’s laced with lies.
