We should not forgive him

The name is Wee Meng Chee, also known as Namewee. He has delivered his apology for his infamous Negarakuku song and much has been said about him. Our big boss said that he is forgiven but will have to face the law nonetheless. Pak Lah, I have to disagree, I think that dude shouldn’t be forgiven at all! Here are my reasons…

The art of asking for forgiveness has got its precedent, set by a certain big shot from Klang who built a mansion on state land. Then, Pak Lah said we should all forgive that Klang fella for what he has done because he has asked for forgiveness and he has “repent”. And there is one very important element… “tears”. Namewee, if you wanna be forgiven, you must cry like that fella from Klang. Namewee didn’t cry, thus shouldn’t not be forgiven, but that big shot from Klang should.

Secondly, Namewee should not be forgiven because I think his apology was not sincere. Some people are saying that his parents were harassed and threatened, which led to his apology. If that is the case, I don’t think his apology is sincere, he was forced and being intimidated into doing it and as such, it can't be sincere. So he shouldn’t be forgiven.

Thirdly, his Negarakuku parody blew the secret that the national anthem is a pirated borrowed version from a particular song called Mamula Moon. Talk about opening a can of worms. Namewee’s little act has revealed to us that the pride and identity of the nation was based on a Hawaiian tune. We all should be made to believe that the national anthem is original, and he blew it all. Cannot… we cannot forgive him.

Last but not least, we should not forgive him because has been occupying too much space in the blogosphere. Blogs are supposed to only talk about what we did in a day, bitch about so and so, camwhore our faces and other fun stuff. But this Namewee dude caused even the regular personal blogs to put up an entry about him. In addition, his antics even caused a person like Kennysia (never thought I would link him but this entry deserves a link) to start talking poltics and do parady on another song! This is certainly a very unhealthy competition. He certainly should not be forgiven. He is such a bad influence.

Check out Kennysia’s video here before he is being threatened and forced to take it down and apologise insincerely.



See, we shouldn’t forgive this Namewee, right?


P/S: A new poll is out, time to cast your vote again...

Freethinker said...

Yeah... seeing that he made u link Kennysia, shouldn't be forgiven. HAHHAHA

maegen said...

OMG... this mamula moon sounds sooooo looooooomantic and sooooooo hawaiiiiiian... haaa~~ how come ??

5xmom.com said...

I read on Screenshots, JeffOoi's blog that Gerakan has a part in this, no?

sooi2 said...

aha, i c dat u're a kennysia lurker. gotcha! LOL

Manal said...

It made u blog on sunday i see....hardly ur routine....u mustve been sober enuf.

I took it with a pinch of salt. Though i wasnt melenting or anything like that, i think it definitely rattled quite a few cages around.

angel said...

I'm surprised not many ppl knew abt Mamula Moon... hmmm...

That kenny's video sounded like... errr... william hung liddat...

narrowband said...

i thought it was a known fact (or open secret at least) that our national anthem is based on a pop song. I found out about it a few years ago and i was surprised, although i didn't give it much thought. I wonder if we pay the original recording label any copyright charges. Heh.

Kenny's video absolutely wicked. By the way, I read that the govt going to take action against Youtube also wor. Hmm.

ehon said...

pandai u. very pandai! lol!

they say behind the surface is another different painting altogether. :)

so when u running for politician wei? im going 21 very soon n i'll sure vote for u. don't worry!

J.T. said...

I first knew about the origins of our national anthem back in the late 70s. I was told that it was the "Terang Bulan" song (which came from Mamula Moon). I wondered why they couldn't come up with something original.

Anyway, YOU are not to be forgiven for exposing me to Kenny Sia's video. haha
I was ready for a peaceful night's sleep and now I will be disturbed by that. psst...Is he trying to compete with William Hung? :P (thanks for the idea, Angel). At least, Namewee can sing a little better.

I think we should forgive that Namewee guy. We don't need to have drama (read: tears) for that. We get enough of drama and more from our 'ever-browning grass'. ;)

Cirnelle said...

Urgh... I knew I should never have clicked on YouTubes attached to blogs. He he.... Going over to check on the hawaian song now.

Tine said...

Nope, he shouldn't be forgiven. He's gaining way too much popularity than me!

Down boy down!

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

well i watched the video..not understanding half the contents being a chinese..how did PM understand it ar??

well aside from the contents..hes definitely a talented musician..

Anonymous said...

Yes indeed, he shouldn't be forgiven at all. I mean I have seen more tears coming from the old man as well when he decided to step down back in 2003.

Hor ny Ang Moh said...

Dam!My office comp is so 'holy' all videa also cannot poke!

Sunshine said...

hey hey you you... lol...

imp said...

i know it's not exactly meant to be funny. but i'm very tickled. love the way you structured this post!

sooyin said...

so much fuss over such a small matter. you'd think the garblement have nothing better to worry about...like a horrific bus crash that was bound to happen sooner or later...

Jonny said...

I am so totally impressed haha.

KAYLEE said...

GREAT POST

Huei said...

HAHAHAHHA THIS IS THE BEST MAN!!

yea..i think namewee's hogging too much space on blogosphere! i've been blogging for 2years n get so little traffic..namewee's out for few mths and is so famous liao

cannot be forgiven!!!! lol!

hasilox said...

u da man!

No, should never be forgiven.

He distracted the entire 'wooden' CABINET (not cupboard hor) from attending to RM4.6bil scandal. He denied the superbus crash's victims the exclusive rights to get answers from 'wooden' ministries.

Damn, he could even be the source of all the problems in bolehland for the past 50 years.

Winn said...

yalor !! agree. we should get a prefect to 'copy' his name !!

then copy kennysia's..
followed by zewt's..

then mine also la..might as well...hahah...

MissSHopaHolic said...

Whats the big fuss??

I think the media is giving 2 much of attention to this rather than other things... (we have unsolved murders, accidents killing many lives,)

There have been many cases when top ministers using foul language on citizens the word k*^&%$ and b*&$!!

Whatever happen to them?? did those ministers cry when they apologised?? or did they even apologise??

Plz la.. i hate wen ppl goreng bout der same thing...

There are ppl threatening 2 sue You Tube.. lolz

They will put up those ppl's very own racist comments or other illegal activities b4 you can sue em'

Anonymous said...

must not be forgiven...

putting all those talent-search reality shows to shame... no need to spend a single sen on promotion but having world-wide exposure...

& guess, that uni in taiwan sure taught him a thing or two about mass-communication.

Clare said...

LOL!!!

Very sharp, straight to the point...sarcastic enough! I like! :P

missironic said...

Hahahahaa...i dunno wat to say xcept to laff..gud one, zewt! lolz..

changeiam said...

Oh my the irony of being ironic hahahahaah. Definitely cannot be forgiven !!! The video definitely made Monday more interesting :)

alan zed said...

hurm, i thought was "terang bulan". thank you for the history lesson. :)

bro, wat happen to man yoo, la? :P

Helen said...

You're getting some dickless spammers here.... :-)

Don't worry about it, who says one man makes no difference? Namewee just proved otherwise.

Now most people of dragon descent can see clearly what's happening in this country.

anthraxxxx said...

Cyber troopers alert!

jolcy said...

ya.. cannot be forgiven because he eat pork... :P

conan_cat said...

lol i'm laughing so hard at your reasons there XD is this post supposed to be ironic o sarcastic? :P

namewee sure made an impact... all those things in the negarakuku was all known, but nobody really voiced it out. he did it loud and hard, and people either hate him or love him. nevertheless, he attracted hell lot of attention, and we all love him for that, no? :)

rinnah said...

As usual, another excellent post from you, zewt! Love the wit, sarcasm and irony all rolled into one zewty package.

Yeah, if you ever decide to go politico, I know who to vote for. *grin*

wong said...

Erm... The Negaraku song was revived since last last year before merdeka la... Check PPS la... LiewCF also blog about it le...

Don't think the "tears" is the reason, then everyone who apology should cry in order to be forgiven lo?

About forcing apology maybe lo... Not so sincere also, some more he argue in the letter too.

clement said...

heard that negaraku was written by some frence in the year 57.. is there going to be a new national anthem after this?

suanie said...

hehe nice one :)

i blogged about it on monsterblog, but i think should focus on real issue already. something about RM4.6 billion...

ardy said...

Ah, such a controversial topic to be posted on your blog ;)

You're sure you can handle the heat? There are already a few racist comments in here! Hohoh! Ppl are getting touchy here.

Personally, I think there are better things where we can put our attentions to instead of him. Seriously. Like what should I name my two kittens, etc.

Heheh!

Sheena said...

Well-written, Zewt :)

Don't forget, the dude also didn't apologise using any holy book, so it can't be sincere.

Doreen said...

When I got forwarded his Negarakuku MV, I found his disgraceful. Even if those are facts,as a Malaysian, he shouldn't be singing out loud trying to downgrade make our country like that.

zewt said...

tingtitlei - you wanna die ah? hahahahaha....

Freethinker - yeah man, that's such a sin... what sin have i committed! :P

maegen - it's hawaiian cos it's hawaiian mah.

5xmom - which part? talk more later.

sooi2 - nope nope, i am innocent, freethinker pointed it out to me.

Manal - indeed... plenty of cages rattled since we bloggers now are branded as monkeys.

angel - hahaha... yeah!!! he is kenny 'william hung' sia... damn funny. threw me off my chair!

zewt said...

narrowband - honestly speaking, i knew it quite some time ago and like you, i didnt give it much thought. yeah, it's an open secret... just like like so many other things in this country, those that we know but the newspaper proclaim otherwise and we have to agree with it. as for youtube... i have no idea how they are going to do it.

ehon - do up a video like kennysia for me... then i will run for one... kakakakaka....

JT - hahaha... yeah, he is really a william hung wannabe! must have rocked your whole house eh? 'ever-browning grass'... i thought it's all mud already.

cirnelle - i tot u knew about the hawaiian song thingy. are you going to 'hey hey you you' in front of your baby?

Tine - couldnt agree more, he is taking the limelight from me. i dont like him! :P

constant craver joe - which one you refering to dude?

anon @ 8.48am - indeed, tears are everything. perhaps some funky sun-glasses might do the trick too.

zewt said...

hor ny - go home and try. a must try!

anon @ 9.43am - already read that :) thanks anyway.

Sunshine - complete the chorus la... :P

imp - thank you. always wanted to be different, hope i am not trying too hard.

sooyin - well, another accident happened after tat driver from hell incident... but are we talking about it at all now? it has already been forgotten, just like other things.

Jonny - with me or kennysia?

Kaylee - thanks :)

Seaqueen said...

Good. This is really good. Like what I heard before on Mix FM, spoken by Richard and Syazmin, slap first then sayang. Damn good. Very the sarcastic. I like it. I like it.

zewt said...

Huei - yeah la! i was doing ok for 7 months plus and suddenly this guy spoils everthing. too much la! cannot forgive him. thanks for sharing about the IP address fella. looks like the cyber troopers might have found us already.

hasilox - yo! so he should not or should be forgiven? you got a typo there eh? heh heh... yeah man... he will be a problem for the next 50 years!!! cant be forgiven.

Winn - hahahah... and send them to the discipline teacher right? :P

MissSHopaholic - yeah... he is taking all the attention from all the issues that deserves to be looked into. but then again, must say that he has spur a lot of us on into greater things. know what i mean?

anon @ 12.21pm - yeah, he is giving too much publicity to taiwan too, so china will not like it. damn... he is dangerous! should not be forgiven.

Clare - straight to the point? :P

kedaikopi - thanks for your input but i think AZAIG does not welcome racist remark, particularly from anon commentor.

zewt said...

reshoppaholic2 - no screwing races around here dude.

anon @ 12.37pm - thanks dude.

anon @ 12.43pm - thank you very much for that. indeed, needs to be flushed down.

purple mushroom - hahaha... sam jiu indeed. why you scared? sam jiu ler...

missironic - hahaha... laugh is good enough then.

changeiam - hey! welcome to AZAIG! haha... no thanks to kennysia eh? i guess he cannot be forgiven after all, for being such a bad influence in the blogosphere. hope to see ya around.

alan zed - sighhhh... speechless. i would like to say it's early. but when i see ppl like eagles and campbel(?)... dunno what to say.

zewt said...

Helen - yeah, have decided to eliminate their comment to avoid any unwanted attention. according to Huei, they could all be the same ppl... which can only mean one thing. dragon descent?

anthraxxxx - yup... we need some cyber defenses.

jolcy - i eat pork too. shit!!!

conan_cat - no... i hate him cos he is getting too much attention, took the limelight away from me :P... and i have to leverage on his fame with this post... sigh.

rinnah - hahaha... so i have to join some party soon eh? no la... dont think politico is my bowl of rice.

wong - yo! welcome to AZAIG! i will need to check out LiewCF blog then. always a pleasure to read more.

zewt said...

clement - yo! welcome! well... maybe. should ask namewee or kennysia to give it a thinker no?

suanie - yo and welcome to AZAIG! honestly, i have yet to fully understand this RM4.6b ruckus. shall read more. nice to hear from you :)

ardy - well, racist remarks have been eliminated. two kittens... name them... ok, better not, the cats deserve respect. :P

Sheena - no matter what, just not sincere la. sigh...

Doreen - means we have to live in denial. i wouldnt say wat he did was wrong... just that his method is not appropriate. oh yea, i do agree he was offensive in some of his words.

Seaqueen - where got sarcastic... i mean it... he should not be forgiven! sigh... no one understands me.

Pookyma said...

The singing from that video is awful but no harm trying!!!

This Namewee guy is like the ammunition used by all politicians since election is just around the corner.

may said...

no need to forgive wan... 'cos later it'll all be forgotten like everything else!

hasilox said...

No typo. Just the point too vague.

With that kinda disproportionate reactions, I even begin to suspect he is the source of all the problems in the past 50 years :P

The issue is not whether he is right or wrong with what he has done. I personally don't like the way he sang about race & religion there. Certainly he could have done better with more sensitivities. But, the reaction and the attempts to demon-ize him is really beyond rationality. He is just a mr.nobody. An idiocy by a mr.nobody is not comparable to an idiocy by a figure of authority.

Helen said...

dragon descent = yellow skin

Cocka Doodle said...

What he did definitely cannot be forgiven by his community...likewise, I hope the other communities would also wake up and tick off their own kind if they go around insulting other races. They too drastically fall short of apologizing for their loose cannon mouths.

littlepolaris said...

lol!
rite shouldn't forgive him for making us recall the sejarah we learn last time in school. I remember about some bulan song la which they copy to make Negaraku song last time. lol bcos of namewee now i know it's mannula moon. ahaha bulan mannula =P

Friendfromtwain said...

He is a hero to all Malaysian chinese, he spoke more truth in one simple song than any other malaysian chinese has dared to say since independance.. any chinese that says " he doesnt represent my views" , look deep into your heart, dont play the politically correct game anymore, no-one is watching no one is listening, just look deep within yourself and ask yourself do the things he mentioned in the video ring a bell? He spoke the words that I myself a coward never dared to say agains the oppresors. He is a pioneer for Malaysian Chinese in finally saying whatever we want to about this fuckwit government.

anigma said...

When the Klang dude failed to turn up to see the Sultan and went weeping and bersandiwara, I am sure he would be forgiven, no matter how much money he "mistakenly" took and how many satay shops he could open and how many storeys of houses he could build illegally.

When one told the truth of the ugly side of Malaysia, nobody could not accept it.

Malaysia memang boleh!

cibol said...

the singing is herrendous .. ha ha ha .. but I enjoyed it. Thanks so much for posting it up. Do you think he might need some back up singers next time? count me in

zewt said...

pookyma - yup... he is the pawn in everything. poor fella. i am also using him keke.

may - hahaha.... brilliantly said.

hasilox - yup... i thnk this fella will truly go down in history for his antics. the more he is being crucified... the more ppl wil get to know him... could be a good thing.

Helen - hmmm... i feel like a dragon now... arrggghhhh!!

cocka doodle - i really like it when you give such comment. well... a lot of loose cannons around... we just have to take it.

littlepolaris - yeah... he make all our sejarah books irrelevant... hahaha... should not forgive! :P

friendfromtaiwan - very philosophical my friend. so when are u coming back la?

anigma - that's the way we do things. dont u wish there will be a change? just dunno what it will cost.

cibol - hahahahahahahaha.... i think it's easier you ask him right? :P

jolcy said...

wei zewt.. shit la.. I also eat pork.. you better keep this secret for me ar.. i help you keep yours.. you help me keep mine ar... :P

zewt said...

jolcy - ok la... we sama sama help conceal this secret.

Mcmercedez said...

Well, come to think about it, he should be forgiven ler.. Idiot like Kenny Sia also follow his style on making a video shooting the govt... His one is worst still.. with pictures of the parliament members.. hehe.. but that guy is talented.. his rap is good.. as for kenny sia's? Hm.. really a teruk one..

zewt said...

mcmercedez - hahahahaha... so becos he managed to influence kennysia... we should give him a break eh? perhaps... well, i give him one more week... and he wil die a malaysian death... forgotten.

Michael Song said...

zewt... mayb u should come up wif another video to counter these? :P

zewt said...

michael song - hmmmm.... you are giving me ideas. very bad influence... bad influence...
