BERSIH 2.0 - Multiple attacks to suppress peaceful march.

If you're Malaysian, you can't ignore the upcoming rally for electoral reforms, BERSIH 2.0.

And as a sign of our age, to broaden their message, they have a facebook page. =>

Now, you can debate about the content of BERSIH's 8 demands. Yes, it's arguable. The UMNO-bloggers find all sort of counter arguments against it. I say debate is good. There should be public debate that concerns the ways in which we form the government.

A peaceful march is part of this debate.

This march is creating a lot of fear in the minds of the Nazi and the dictator. When there's a debate, there is a chance that you might lose the debate. There's a chance that people might turn against you. There's a chance that in the next election that people might vote against you.

There's a chance that you might LOSE THE ELECTION!!! And that must not happen, as they say.

So once that objective is defined => that the BERSIH rally shall be stopped, then the means through which the objective is achieved is irrelevant; in the minds of the Nazi => whatever it takes.

Whatever it takes means

1) to scare you with UNSPECIFIED VIOLENCE, here's an example. He doesn't care that he sounds like a fucking COWARD. Remember: whatever it takes.

"The Mahaguru (grandmaster) of the Pertubuhan Seni Silat Lincah Malaysia (PSSLM) Tan Sri Omardin Mauju was quoted as saying that the exponents were the third line of defence in the country, after the police and military, to ensure national security.

“We maintain our stand to go to ‘war’ if they still want to proceed with this illegal rally,” he was quoted by Utusan Malaysia as saying.

“If it happens, I cannot guarantee I can control the emotions of my members because they have been taught to act when faced with opposition.”"

2) Using police force to take down key elements of your target. Weaken the momentum. Remember: whatever it takes.

Police officers today raided the Bersih 2.0 office in Petaling Jaya, according to steering committee member Maria Chin Abdullah.

She told reporters here in Parliament that 20 policemen were currently raiding the premises, and claimed that a search warrant was not issued prior to the raid.

“Police raided the office at about 12pm, without a warrant. They are now at the office taking details of the staff,” said Maria.

3) Outlaw the propaganda tools of your target. No matter how ridiculous it is and how unconstitutional is may be. Remember: whatever it takes.

"Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said today T-shirts with messages in support of Bersih have been outlawed because they were related to an illegal assembly “

The Bersih T-shirt is related to an illegal assembly then whatever they are wearing is illegal ” he told reporters."

4) Forecast the economic damage. Make your target accountable for the disruption. Turn people against their cause. Remember: whatever it takes.

"Organisers of the Bersih 2.0 rally should consider the effects such an event will have on traders and consumers along the route of its march, said Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said that besides scaring away tourists and visitors, the Opposition-initiated rally would disrupt the daily businesses of the traders, especially since it was being scheduled for a Saturday.

5) Raid the parliament. Apply pressure, cover all the bases. Remember: whatever it takes.

DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang today accused the police of violating parliamentary privileges when they appeared in the House this morning to record statements from two opposition MPs on the Bersih rally. The senior parliamentarian said he had never before witnessed such an incident since he became an MP in 1969.

6) Bring out the right wing extremists. Threat of violence and creating fear. Remember: whatever it takes.

Hundreds of Umno Youth members on motorcycles circled the PKR headquarters here late last night in a threatening manner ahead of the July 9 Bersih rally, ostensibly to protest a death threat against their leader Khairy Jamaluddin.

7) Bring out pseudo-intellectuals, people who claim to be neutral, to move the debate off tangent. If your target's message is defused somewhat, let's say to the center, then that prolongs your grip of the government. Remember: whatever it takes. [Note: Article below is how Art Harun trashed the centrist's propaganda.]

8) Organize counter rally. Threat of violence and chaos. [This is the STICK]. Then offer to cancel rally if the target does the same. [This is the CARROT]. Classic good cop, bad cop. Remember: whatever it takes.

Perkasa will mobilise its members along with other non-governmental organisations to protest against the planned Bersih rally on July 9 because national security is at stake, its president Datuk Ibrahim Ali said today. “Perkasa will launch a counter-demonstration, to show that there are people who do not agree with this rally, I am stopping this on the principle of democracy.”

Datuk Ibrahim Ali said today Perkasa’s stand on the Bersih march is straightforward — if the election reform group calls off its July 9 rally the Malay rights organisation would likewise cancel its counter demonstration.
