Info ministry wary of blogs highlighting communism

KUALA LUMPUR, 28 May 2009: The Ministry of Information, Communications and Culture will always be wary of blogs or groups trying to highlight issues on communism without taking into account the present background of the country.

Its minister, Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said the ministry could take action according to the communications and multimedia legal guidelines on grounds that the blogs tried to exaggerate and influence the people towards communism.

“We will act under the communications and multimedia law but we wish to issue a warning to them. The process is currently being implemented,” he told reporters after opening the second general meeting of the Malaysian TV Producers Association at Angkasapuri today.

He said this when commenting on the decision of the government announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to disallow Malayan Communist Party (MCP) leader, Chin Peng to return to the country.

Rais said the new generation must understand the history of communism, and the atrocities committed by the communist terrorists in this country in the past must be exposed.

He said that the history syllabus did not give wide exposure on communism to students in school as well as the institutions of higher learning.

“Although the young generation have strong ideals on certain matters, issues on the nationhood, family and history are important too,” he said.

He said the ministry was also taking measures to hold an exhibition on the atrocities committed by the communist terrorists at the National Museum very soon. — Bernama

    Oh yeah, great. Rip out those stitches. Shout out to the world loud and proud: we CAN’T move on, we WON’T move on.

    Communist ‘terrorists’. Feh. As if more than 2 people go to Muzium Negara anyway.

    Quite true, Quite true. But the political ideology of the Palestinian Liberation Organisation adopted Marxism as its dogma and guiding philosophy. The Fatah movement which was the umbrella group under which the PLO and The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine was ruled is also heavily Marxist in its rhetoric and its ideology.

    Putting that aside for its influence over successive Malaysian administrations and Muslim organisations within Malaysia, even if smothered over with latter day Islamic and Pan Arabic rhetoric, one must consider the overwhelming influence of China inspite of its unprecedented economic success which Malaysia has not only supported by also emulated in many respects.

    The call by the minister and the threat of legislation to enforce what he sees as a threat in this area is hollow.

    China has already made its intentions clear. It will tolerate no dissent.

    Communist China for those in the Y and X generation seeing it as a capitalist democracy, is a juggernaut of consumer money with a steel fist and unyielding military machine and a dictatorial communist regime to back. It won’t give in when and where it needs to have its way.

    Communist sympathizer blogs minister is not the threat but the Malaysian (and other sycophant) government’s accepted position in its relationship with China.

    China drafts security council resolutions and gets ASEAN members to rubber stamp it to advance its own agenda. It won’t be long before the Dragon does to the Malaysias of this world what Japan did to Manchuria in World War 2.

    What China wants China gets.
