Bloggers had been at the receiving end of the BN (Barisan Nasional) prior to Malaysia 12th General Election 2008 and had been labeled, among others, as monkey bloggers, female lying bloggers, stupid bloggers, etc. Now I am not sure about this, bloggers had also been called goblogs which if I remember correctly is how Indonesians call stupid bloggers, but don't take my word for it.
Now the BN after realizing the futility of depending on the now discredited and no longer trusted MSM (main stream media) have started blogging themselves. Thus BN members have themselves become monkey bloggers.
Now one of those BN monkey bloggers in none other than hugely arrogant Malacca Chief Minister Ali Rustam (one commentator called him Ali Rusty, perhaps seeing that this iron man of UMNO is getting a bit rusty) have also recently became another monkey blogger, female lying blogger, stupid blogger (please note these are not my words but just repeating what the BN had called bloggers prior to General Election 2008).
Ali Rustam's blogs have received overwhelming responses, but for the wrong reasons. According to a report by the independent online newspaper Malaysiakini, news and views that matter, there were comments by the hundreds, a great majority of which are attacks on him. Well, I think he deserves it, for after all, he had the gumption to insult his host at a component party assembly as an INVITED GUEST. I believe Malays had been labeled as the perfect gentlemen. How things have changed.
