Selangor launches no-KDN newspaper
Its editor Chan Kok Leong said: "There will be no politics in this paper, only local and community issues".
Selangor Times to hit the streets on Friday
But Amir Muhammad has the upper hand with his creative write-up (click on pic on the left) by squeezing the rules in a satirical way. He writes a fictitious story about the real-life idiosyncrasies of Malaysian politicians and their blood(y) type of politics.
His fiction, "Land where my blood spills" or simply translated as "Tanah tumpah darahku" is actually a parody of the common racialist chauvinistic way now entrenched in the majority Malaysian mindset.
The part which fascinated me most is:
This statement was condemned by the organisation that upheld the rights of the Type O people, Gerakan Darah O Hakiki (GADOH). The motive of this objection: "To say that all blood type is equal is seditious and unconstitutional. Doesn't the coalition that dreams of seizing power know that the Type O people are the indigenous people of this country? We inherited not only the antigens of our red blood cells from our censors, but the right to rule the nation."
It was only yesterday (or the day before) that PKR President, Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail's call on the abandonment of the ketuanan Melayu (Malay supremacy) concept in her speech at the PKR Congress in Petaling Jaya.

Perkasa's Youth Chief, Arman Azha Abu Hanifah has labled PKR president Dr Wan Azizah and her deputy, Azmin Ali a “political prostitute” for calling for the abandonment:
Azizah, Azmin are 'political prostitutes', says Perkasa
Arman told a press conference yesterday that Dr Wan Azizah had failed to understand the history and context of constitutional provisions that accord the Malays with what he said were special privileges.
But Malaysiakini readers are quick to chip in by asking Perkasa: Does that mean Onn Jaafar a 'prostitute' too?

"Saya ingin bertanya kepada Wan Azizah dan pimpinan PKR, adakah mereka turut menolak institusi raja-raja Melayu? Apa yang ditimbulkan oleh PKR jelas sekali cuba untuk merendah-rendahkan konsep ketuanan Melayu. Kita tidak mahu institusi Kesultanan Melayu turut direndah-rendahkan," he said.

Today his speech was picked up by all mainstream dailies. In Berita Harian: Beta sedih
In Utusan Malaysia: Sultan Selangor kurang senang
Well, lets hope Selangor Times stay true to their vow in not publishing any political news in their paper, or the Selangor Sultan will be real saddened.
Well, with the exception if you know how to camouflage it in a creative way.
