Avoid lies, Umno — The Malaysian Insider

MAY 9 — It’s rich for Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor to advise Malaysians not to be influenced by hearsay over Utusan Malaysia’s Christian Malaysia reports.

“Like what the prime minister has stressed, we should not be quick to react. We do not know what has been said. We didn’t hear... If someone begins by saying apple, then eventually the apple will turn into something else.

“I recommend that [Malaysians be] calm and hear what actually transpired,” Tengku Adnan said today.
Where was he on May 7 when Utusan Malaysia came out with its baseless report?

Where was he when pro-Umno bloggers spun the story last week? Where is he now when Utusan and the other Bahasa paper, Berita Harian, report the story like it is factual.

Fact is, Utusan and the bloggers are still out there, putting out stories based on lies. And Umno is keeping silent about.

Fact is, people like Tengu Adnan have only sweet words which have no substance against the reality. And Umno is good at it.

They are powerless to act against the likes of Utusan, Perkasa, Pembela and the host of bloggers who have decided to okay to malign other races in the country.

Tengku Adnan can give fatherly advice and ask Malayians to stay calm and avoid hearsay — which is what the Christians have done. And for that matter, DAP politicians who have also been dragged into a presumed plot to usurp Islam’s position in the country.

But all this only came after Datuk Seri Najib Razak asked for calm. What if he had kept his silence and let the issue fester and bubble all week?

Fact is, there is nothing to substantiate what Utusan and the bloggers have published and given a life to.
“I don’t know where Utusan get their reports from. Besides I cannot comment much but like what I have said earlier is for everybody to be calm and I believe towards the end, we will know what actually transpired in the meeting in the end,” Tengku Adnan said.

There is no hearsay here. Just a simple plain lie repeated enough times to smear DAP and its allies.
That much Tengku Adnan should know. He should get Umno sycophants to stop the lies. Forever.
