That's a Brave Man
That's a Man who - somehow - is Feared by Some
That's a Man who shows us what Nobility really is about
Yes. You can tell.
I am a Romantic Fool for high fangled Ideals.
(or as my Mama would put it "After Eating Rice, so full until don't know what to do?")
Yes. That's Me.
Raja Petra Kamarudin of Malaysia Today was charged under the Sedition Act. He refused to post Bail and asked for his day in Court.
So that got me wondering.
Firstly, what is "Sedition"? According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary
Sedition: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority
So here is my appeal. Can anyone please show me where it is and what it is RPK has written that has "incited" us to resist / or has called us to "insurrect against" the government?
So I just kept on reading and reading several articles from MT and went to the extent of plucking apart sentences and words from his article on "Send Altantunya's Murderers to Hell" in Malaysia Today
NO SIR. I report I found nothing.
NOTHING in his articles have incited (or excited) me to wrap a bandana around my forehead, put a sarong around my body and brandish my Swiss Army knife to topple the government.
Was I so stupid I could not find anything SEDITIOUS?
I dunno. But I must admit one thing the arrest of RPK has made me do
Now...SUDDENLY... I find myself paying more & closer attention to all the articles written in Malaysia Today.
I pray and wish for the well being of Raja Petra K and I wish I could be there to lend support to his beloved Family.
But you know what? I think you can't be the family of such an Extraordinary Gentleman if you were not Extraordinary yourself!
