In The Defence Of NameWee – My Thoughts

Filed under: Blogosphere, Issues, Thoughts — Yatz @ 5:00 am

Everyone knows who is NameWee, real name Wee Meng Chee..

He’s a Malaysian student who is studying in Ming Chuan University in Taiwan, created a furore over his Negarakuku video clip..

All hype on this case was actually the way of the national anthem being played and sung in the video clip..

It’s a song of Mandarin rap with Negaraku as the chorus..

The main agenda here is the appearance of the national anthem in a rap song has definitely lowered the standard of the national anthem..

The whole rapping is about whinnings of a Chinese citizen who resides in Malaysia, which he presumed he’s the voice of all Malaysian Chinese..

The raps are focused on the strugglings of the Chinese society as the second community in Malaysia, and the misused of power of the Malays as they were called the aborigin of Malaysia..

Nonetheless, he also criticises the country is badly managed by the government and some other stuffs..

If you listen to the music or watch the video clip on a neutral ground or empty mind, it’s almost similar to the likes of none other than Eminem and Good Charlotte..

They criticised their own government and the lifestyle they had compared to those living in a very wealthy condition..

On the other hand, NameWee criticises the Malays, how they misused the power of bumiputra or NEP or whatever they called it, to have a better life compared to other races in Malaysia..

He also criticises the corrupted certain parties in the government are, and of course the most famous of all, the police force..

They accept bribes just like they drink coffee everyday..Simply refreshing..

On the positive side for NameWee, the government can’t charge him for defamation as those statements in the song is widely known to everyone in the country..

So it’s not really defamation..It’s the truth,at least we all know but we don’t dare to speak out publicly like what he did..

Okay, if the national anthem is considered tarnished in a way, then what about Jason Lo’s Malaysian Invasion.??

Malaysian Invasion is a rock song, a very rock one..In the middle of the song, there’s a clip of Tunku Abdul Rahman declaring the independence of Malaya, by shouting “Merdeka” 7 times..

For such a historic event and sound clip to be appeared in a rock song, doesn’t it would tarnish the image of the Allaryarham Tunky Abdul Rahman.??

Strange isn’t..They just like to accuse whatever they like..

They don’t seem to care bout other things but little matters like this one, they always make it a big havoc..

If Jeff Ooi and Rocky Bru were being sued because of defamatory..

If Nathaniel Tan was remanded by the police for questioning over a comment in his blog..

If Raja Petra Kamrudin and his wife were taken in by the police for questioning after they were alleged that the contents in his blog were insulting religion and the Agong of Malaysia..

If socio-political bloggers were labelled as goblok by Information Minister Datuk Zainuddin Maidin..

Then why nothing happens to Kenny Sia when he publicly condemn the government and post it on Youtube to have millions of Malaysians viewing it..

*Kenny Sia’s stupid DIY video*

Honestly, I don’t find this video funny at all..It just shows how silly KennySia is and how naive his commentors are..

Okay, I know what I’m saying here are quite crappy..I’m just point out the thing that what NameWee did is not really a big deal..

The only big deal is he revealed his face in the video clip..Only if he didn’t appeared in the video clip, with just his voice, nothing can be done against him..

And I don’t even think the authorities would care much about the video should his face doesn’t appeared in the video clip..

Nevertheless, they waste so much time on debating whether to charge him with a lawsuit or not..

I think it would be better if the government and oppositions take note of what NameWee mentioned in his video clip..

It’s better to make improvement instead of blaming others when that certain matter is actually a tiny little problem..

And if it’s SO BIG DEAL, the government already had a team of authorities went to Taiwan to capture NameWee in the name of the law..But they didn’t..

The Malaysia 50th Indepence Day is just around the corner..Think wisely and think big..Don’t act like a fool and so childish anymore..

Yes, I’m telling the authorities, government, and oppositions..Pat your butts and start work things off..

Don’t just sit down there and pointing fingers to each other..

It’s like I’m paying for some services and the workers aren’t working but slacking around and complaining too much work to be done, when they are actually paid to do so..

No, I’m not saying I’m paying the government to do things for the country..It’s just a comparison..Get it.??

  2. i like that you’re expressing your thoughts. but namawee’s song was kinda against the constitution. we can’t change the lyrics of Negaraku. it is known. and also, the lyrics were kinda against the Akta Hasutan 1970. it is known, to all that’s studied sejarah in high school. i’m not hating namawee for voicing out, i love him. his raps, his films, his way of thinking. but its the law, we can’t just go around breaking it to voice out our opinion. there are other ways to do so. and other thing, they can’t touch him when he was in Taiwan.malaysia doesn’t have an extradition treaty with taiwan. 🙂
