The Galactic Empire Is Upon Us

It was astounding to see that over 5 million people visited Malaysia Today following the incidents that began with a report that Mat Tyson Taib filed against RPK. As of this time since 11 a.m, our good friend RPK has been in the police station to have his statement recorded by the CID.

I know that a lot of our fellow Malaysian bloggers including Jeff are standing in support with RPK. This is the second time in 10 days where a blogger is subjected and questioned by the police over articles of defamation.

As a hit back, RPK has written an article called: See You In Hell Muhammad, son of Muhammad. From what I've read, I believe that Mat Taib is English illiterate, meaning that he could be misinterpreting the earlier article written by RPK on July 11.

Seeing that these incidents including the warning from the de facto Law Minister Nazri Aziz over the blogging problem in Malaysia, Rocky has invited everyone to sign for the petition for the PM to investigate the claims by Mat Taib over the articles. Don't forget that Mat Taib was let go by the Australian High Court over his failure to declare currencies brought out from Australia in 1997.

As of 9.45 p.m, there are 755 signatures already.


RPK was released at 7 p.m earlier. According to him, the police were not after what he wrote on the blogs, but instead, the comments made by some of the visitors of the blog.

A shame that we were fingered while visitors are the ones to get away from it. More to come tomorrow.

As of 11 p.m. local time, there are 802 signatures there already.

But I am quite surprised that the Senate and the UMNO Youth never bothered to look through the whole account and instead flabbergasted bloggers for willing to write such things. There is a big difference in the definition of a posting of a blog and comment. Senators just keep blasting without understanding at once how blogging works.

Seeing what Nazri Aziz was saying about this matter is like listening to a Gestapo edict.

Prehistoric lifeforms.

There is a Malay saying calling for everyone in a boat to steady together or they will sink.

Why do some people or groups agree to everything a leader would say? A figurehead?

Now back to the notion that this may lead to policing the cyberspace, which is contradictory against the aims of the Abdullah administration - open, transparent and fair. They should look at the whole record before saying a word. Hooo haa hoo haa for what?

Such notion reminds us of the Galactic Empire intending to impose their model of governing over the people. But don't forget that governments are supposedly to fear the people and we should not be afraid of them? Remember what V said in V For Vendetta?

Recently, Prof. Michel Chossudovsky said that President Bush on July 17 has decreed an Executive Order that allows Criminalization of Anti-War Movement.


In substance, under this executive order, opposing the war becomes an illegal act.

The Executive Order criminalizes the antiwar movement. It is intended to "blocking property" of US citizens and organizations actively involved in the peace movement. It allows the Department of Defense to interfere in financial affairs and instruct the Treasury to "block the property" and/or confiscate/ freeze the assets of "Certain Persons" involved in antiwar activities. It targets those "Certain Persons" in America, including civil society organizatioins, who oppose the Bush Administration's "peace and stability" program in Iraq, characterized, in plain English, by an illegal occupation and the continued killing of innocent civilians.

The Executive Order also targets those "Certain Persons" who are "undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction", or who, again in plain English, are opposed to the confiscation and privatization of Iraq's oil resources, on behalf of the Anglo-American oil giants.

The order is also intended for anybody who opposes Bush's program of "political reform in Iraq", in other words, who questions the legitimacy of an Iraqi "government" installed by the occupation forces.
Are they trying to subvert those who oppose the war? They are indeed above the law.

This is what is called as Hegemony. Bush is Palpatine. Gonzales is Vader.

Back to the blogger problem, why can't the government go for the bigger fish and tackle crimes like robberies, murders and corruption rather than paying attention to this?
