Be Man Enough, Kim

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. Abraham Lincoln 

One man's Political Power vs Press Freedom.  Tunku Aziz must have thought there was freedom of expression in this country, so he wrote this article about his former boss in DAP. This Tunku Aziz, mind you. The man is old school, very careful with his words. He also contiues to be politically naive, and I don't mean that in a bad way.

Many see him in this context now
With Guan Eng, you have to be ready for extreme mood swings against you, a journalist covering him has said. Most dictators have their mood swings. Not that I'm calling him one. Come on, he's no Kim of North Korea, he's the product of our good education system! 

But the son of Lim Kit Siang is indeed known for his post-2008 tantrums, especially his "I'll sue you" antics at members of the Press. The latest, I hear, he's throwing his weight to pin down the New Straits Times (again). For publishing Tunku Aziz's article telling him to be "man enough" [you can also read it here]. 

Just the other day, he was reported to have said that he would forgive NST if the newspaper says sorry. I was sorry to see the NST keeping quiet about that. Jalil Hamid, the wire-trained group managing editor of the NSTP, should have told Guan Eng off for trying to make the Press work according to his whims and fancies.

I've said it and I'll say it again, Kim Guan Eng before March 2008 and Kim Guan Eng after March 2008 - after he became a Chief Minister - are two different personalities.

  7. Now we understand why CHINA was ruled under COMMUNISM for such a long time. Ironic & amazing is that the CHINESE simply LOVE "dictatorship" & we can even see this in Malaysia whereby the Malaysian Chinese CAN'T stop supporting DAP.

    Whether it's KIM GUAN ENG or LIM GUAN ENG....I don't give a damn. All I know is that those Malaysian Chinese whom support DAP are people who are still trapped in the COMMUNISM hey days.

    I don't understand these blind supporters of PR. There's so much evidence pointing to Kim guan eng being dictatorial if he gets so much power. The fact that he muzzles freedom of speech and ban media and then wants everyone to write good stuff on him n pr Is the biggest symptom of a dictator. He's more intolerant than Najib. Then the way Kim guan eng and pr con the public from budget water lynas economy hudud etc etc issues shows his desparateness to deceive public for power. For example he lied that were going bankcrupt with bn deficit budget when he tony and pr gang also presented a deficit budget. This is truly Kim Guan Eng.

  39. Whatever it is Bro, this guan eng fella is CM because his Daddy is Paramount Leader of the Dick and Pussy Party. Some of leaders got dicks but act like pussies when it comes to Kit Siang and his son Guan Eng.

    Pity some Penang folks think that Penang is a Chinese DAP territory, its not. DAP may win Penang after the next election but the election after that it will be something else together as the demographic comes in play.

    Anyway Guan Eng's dictatorial antics is only damaging DAP in the longer run, kudos to the Melaka DAP who are smart enough to kick him out of Melaka. No prices for why he was thrown out of Melaka for, arrogance and untrustworthy is written all over his face.

    Guan Eng is learning fast from his idol down south.Suing is a trade-mark of one who does not believed in democracy.

    With all the false allegations against him Dr Mahathir never starts suing people. Unlike LKY who is behaving like a true dictator.

    If the non-malay of Malaysia were to live under LKY then they might appreciate what democracy they had in Malaysia.

  47. Ultimately it doesnt matter what Rocky or any of us who spins here writes.
    The decision lies in the hands of the people of Penang. It's what they think that counts.
    Rocky is pro UMNO, so his point of view is to be expected, as would anyone who is pro Pakatan.
    As a former resident of Penang I remember what it was like per 2008 and although Koh Tsu Koon was actually a nice guy his leadership was not very dynamic. I can't judge LGE's leadership as I left Penang before 2008. My only conjecture is from ex colleagues who are still there and so far they are pretty impressed with the Pakatan government. Maybe a small sample, but I expect Pakatan will increase their majority in Penang.

    Anon,
    Dr M put journalists/editors under ISA? Like who?

    The Tun didn't even put Anwar Ibrahim under ISA-lah, what are you talking about? In 87, the government used the ISA in OPerasi Lalang to stop a dangerously spiraling ethnic situation but none of the detainees spend too much time inside. It would have been a waste of taxpayers' money if they had!

    On the contrary, when he became PM in 1981, Dr M released scores of ISA detainees - including the late Samad Ismail, who had been inside for 5 years because of the late King Ghaz's insecurities!

    Dr M was also instrumental in bringing back to Malaysia journalist Said Zahari, an ISA detainee for 17 years from 1963 during the reign of Lee Kuan Yew, your mentors' mentor...

    The truth is that LGE was charged under Section 4(1) (b) of the Sedition Act 1948 for causing 'disaffection with the administration of justice in Malaysia'.
