as in pretty early, not necessarily looking pretty
looking blur definitely.
anyway, being the internet junkie that Lulu is, Lulu checked what recent updates were on the blogs.
obviously, this one caught Lulu's eye - a posting from Rocky "Loke Siew Fook, did you write that about our Sultan?"
what could it be about.
so, Lulu went to Rocky's blog to check it out.
According to Rocky,
it is about allegations made over the weekend by some blogs that Loke, who is also MP for Rasah, had called the Sultan of Perak and son Raja Nazrin by some unsavoury names in a posting dated Aug 6 on the blog The Might of the Pen.
the link to the screenshot here
Lulu looked through the screenshot. Read and re-read, searched and searched and searched and could not find anything which ties Anthony Loke, MP for Rasah and DAP Youth Chairman, with what was posted by the Might of the Pen.
maybe cos masih awal pagi and Lulu blur.
just now, Lulu looked at Rocky's post again.
Anthony has responded
Dear Mr Rocky,
I strongly deny the allegation that I have written the article to insult the Sultan of Perak and Raja Nazrin. I have no prior knowledge whatsoever on that particular blog http://sjsandteam.wordpress.com/
My ONE and ONLY blog is lokesiewfook.blogspot.com
I have NEVER written anything that insult the Royalty, Malays or Islam in my life. There is an effort to slander DAP Youth and myself and spread lies that we are anti-Islam and anti-Royalty.
I do not know who is behind that blog and I have nothing to do with it.
As a responsible blogger, I hope you can first verify the facts before making any assumptions. I will be lodging a police report today to deny the article and I hope you can publish my explanation to clear the air later. Thank you.
looks like its not Lulu not so siuman in the morning.
The accusation is probably that Anthony Loke is behind that blog, but if you look at the stuff on that blog, it is quite obvious that the causes it "champions" is not the sort that Anthony [like so friend like that. Lulu knows him but he does not know Lulu] champions. Not even closet champion-er of those sort of things.
But what this whole incident reveals [beside the point that Lulu thinks Might of The Pen is a racist blog with a lot of crude language] is that these UMNO fellas are trying to give DAP a bad rap with baseless accusations and Anthony Loke seems to be target of the week. Look at how the pro-UMNO blogs are whacking him "Loke Siew Fook mesti dicaj sekeras-kerasnya di bawah Akta Hasutan!", "Biadap, Kurang Ajar Dan Naik Kepala", "ACT NOW!!!!!!!!!!", are some examples. Looking into the crystal ball, Lulu would not be surprised if the editorials in Utusan and Berita Harian would heavily hint of "some MP from DAP" memburuking the Sultan's good name. Afterall, they believe that if you repeat a lie often enough, people will start to believe the lie. See how the blogs caught on?
you know why?
cos the nastiness has barely begun.
we are going to have to endure it until a new government takes over
