Hey, I’m an unemployed liar!

March 11, 2007

Was doing some blog surfing and came across something that disgusted me.

I thought to myself, as a woman (I like to think so heh 😛 ) and a blogger (so-called), I must blog about this and give my two cents worth.

myAsylum (with whom I am nominated with for Asia Blogs Awards) drew my attention to the fact that OUR Tourism Minister made the most assinine statement of all time. I am deeply disturbed to have this person as MY country’s Tourism Minister.

Apparently Mr Minister made a comment that literally called all Malaysian bloggers liars, with a majority of them being “unemployed women”.

Here’s the quote:

“Bloggers are liars. They use all sort of ways to cheat others. From what I know, out of 10,000 unemployed bloggers, 8,000 are women…Bloggers like to spread rumours, they don’t like national unity. Today our country has achievements because we are tolerant and compromising. Otherwise we will have civil war.”

And you know what the best part is? Those statements were made on International Women’s Day. HAH!! What a way to piss off women. Tsk tsk tsk. Another thing, shouldn’t he be wandering around promoting the country as opposed to making foolishly bold statements like those, thereby tarnishing the image of the country?

I rarely write about politics, even more so LOCAL politics. I read political blogs once in a while and silently agree and chuckle at comments made. I never write about local politics because just thinking about it pisses me off. And when I’m pissed off I say the most outrageous things. I write about my life, my thoughts, my feelings, my experiences.

Why am I now dimmed a “liar” because of that? I do NOT disrupt national harmony. More importantly, I never lie in my life blog!

Eh, better stop talking about it, else I’d get sued or something. 😛

Shhhh, you did not hear this from me.
