Azalina's Turn in Bashing Bloggers

Previously, a few ministers are involved in attacking the Malaysian blog community. The names of those ministers are:

1. Shaziman Mansor (LKY's deputy)
2. Mamak Maidin
3. Nazri 'El Balachi' Aziz
4. Dr. Rais Yatim

On Wednesday, Rais Yatim was the latest person to attack bloggers and now....the once head of UMNO cyber-troopers group Azalina Othman is now joining the fray of blogger bashing. Many discovered that she had roped in a few people with a pay of $2750 per month for a person to bash blogs and accuse them of inciting hatred whereas her own secret division was responsible for it. The responsibility of the division is now handed over to Kerishamuddin now.

From the Star:

KOTA TINGGI: Rumour-mongering bloggers are cowards and a nuisance to Umno, said Pengerang MP Datuk Seri Azalina Othman.

Azalina, who is Youth and Sports Minister, said the opposition parties were using the blogs because they know that the Home Affairs Ministry was busy monitoring reports in the mainstream media.

“They think they can get away with it but it is not the case as they too are being monitored,” she said after launching the National Sports Institute satellite centre here.

Asked on the personal attacks against her, Azalina said it was part and parcel of politics.

“The most important thing is that the leadership knows your capability and wants to retain you.

“I get more pahala (blessings) everyday with all the lies spread about me, especially by bloggers,” she said.

On talk of infighting in Pengerang Umno especially between her and division chief Datuk Harun Abdullah, Azalina said people could say a lot of things but there was no problem.

“I still see him and I still shake his hand,” she said.

Azalina said she would contest in a seat to be decided by the Barisan Nasional leadership.

“I am a soldier and if the boss asks me to go to war, then I will,” she said.

On the satellite centres, she said seven would be constructed nationwide this year. Each centre costs about RM2mil.

First of all the word bloggers is a wide word. Azalina did not mention what kind of bloggers her blistering attack is on. Is it on people who write the stuff as I do or is it everyone who writes their own stuff? Be specific. Are you saying that everyone is in the fault?

Number two: Most of us know what are the mistakes that you and the UMNO lackeys are committing. So don't call us a a bullshit and nuisance. You trying to force us to be monkeys, play stupid and hide in the dark. You mentioned nuisance to UMNO, which implies that others know and UMNO is caught with the pants dropped and perhaps trying to hide the dirty work away.

Number three: Most of the government people don't even know what blog is so in the bloggers war, they would lose outright before they fight. This shows that you are not very informed although you claim to be high and mighty. If you really want to challenge the blog community and defend yourself against criticism here seriously, please start a blog on your own, Azalina and co. It takes less than 5 minutes to setup and just write as usual. Issue in one post by post.

Number four: Depending on the outcome of the elections results on March 8, don't whine if you lose because there could be some of the voters know your dirty work.
