Nearly each day in the last three weeks, everything – absolutely every issue considered controversial and of national significance: mass killing bus drivers, mass crime, etc - have been reduced to ashes, to irrelevance. The only remaining issue of national preoccupation affects just one name: namewee.
Nothing beats the spectacle of a public lynching, a public hanging, and the juicier it gets the more vulnerable is the person, especially if he is accused of sedition. The Malay dailies, such as Berita Harian, prepare the ground for the lynching: “Dia hina Melayu.” Before that, the foreign minister Syed Hamid Albar: “Dia hina Islam.” Even the so-called liberals, the freedom lovers, at Malaysiakini for example, are caught up in the fever and says namewee should stand trial. And, after that?
In Iran, they like to use a construction crane and then organise it at a public square, as a public rally, the way Umno has it at a stadium each time they look for somebody to lynch. Iranian style (Reuters pix):
Malaysia is DIY roasted. And that on the eve of the 50th anniversary.
