“All Your Brain Are Belong To Us!”

by Eyes Wide Open

The govt has finally dropped all pretenses of allowing media freedom, despite Najib’s glowing words at the National Press Club-Naza Awards Night held not even four moons ago.

This piece of news certainly sounds like the death knell of all views that do not conform to the official version.

Panel set up to ‘stop lies’

PUTRAJAYA: The Government has decided to set up a committee to stop the dissemination of false news, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.

He said that besides himself, other committee members were Infor­mation, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz.

“At the committee’s first meeting three days ago, we decided to set up a high-level task force comprising senior officers from enforcement agencies under the Attorney-General’s Chambers.

In addition, Hishamuddin also announced that the definition for fallacious news would be “defined” and a a com­prehensive set of guidelines will be issued to media to ensure they didn’t run afoul of the law.

My God! We actually now have an official list of “things that are not to be mentioned ever”? How fascist is that?!

Particularly distressing is that the committee comprises the keris warrior, the anti-internet crusader and the no-class pit bull who can’t string 2 coherent sentences together.

They will be commanding a group of high-enforcers from “enforcement agencies”. We guess that it includes the police, the MACC, the MCMC, et al.

Curious…I always thought that the cure for lies is the truth. But judging from the composition of the task force, it seems the govt’s cure for lies are bullets, handcuffs, and interrogation rooms.

Instead of winning the battle with better ideas and having the honour to retire those scandalous politicians exposed by the media (at least investigate them la…), the govt is openly, unashamedly and with no longer any pretense of decency, detetrmined bringing down the hammer on those who have a different opinion?

Good Lord! Is there any semblance of democracy left in Malaysia?

Whatever happened to najib’s sweet words at the National Press Club-Naza Awards Night?

“I would like you to be my partner in my journey to transform the country.”

Well, with the tightened laws, dedicated witch-hunting squad, and lists of “things never to be mentioned”, the message to the media now seems to be more along the lines of this:

<!– @page { size: 8.5in 11in; margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } –>

It’s extremely distressing that Truth in Malaysia is now no longer based on facts, but based on government interpretation according to the “List Of Things Considered To Be False News”!

In other words, the BN government is giving itself absolute control over what the people can or cannot believe about themselves, their families, their society, their country and their world!

So if the govt says black is white, you cannot say white is white or you will have people with handcuffs knocking on your door!

Most chllingly, the govt’s deadly serious message to the rakyat seem to be:

All Your Brain Are Belong To Us!
