Now Trending: #Kangkung

15 01 2014

I have been wondering why out of the sudden everybody writes about kangkung?

So, I asked my mother, “What’s up with kangkung now that it becomes a trending?”

So my mother explained about it and now I know what happened, but I’m not interested to write about kangkung until I read a few ‘interesting articles’ in The Malaysian Insider, Malaysia Chronicle and The Star about kangkung.

Today, January 15, 2014, The Malaysian Insider (TMI) and Malaysia Chronicle (MC) both publish the same article but with two different titles, TMI’s title is, ‘Malaysia’s kangkung index – Sakmongkol AK47’ while MC’s title is, ‘HOW M’SIA HAS SUFFERED UNDER HIM: Najib’s ‘GREATEST LEGACY’ – the ‘kangkung index’.

TMI wrote that the writer of the article is “the nom de guerre of Raub MP Datuk Ariff Sabri” while MC wrote that it is “written by Abdul Aziz by Mohd Ariff Sabri”.

The author is trying to convince the readers that even Royal Professor Ungku Aziz is supporting Pakatan’s #kangkung issue that the Royal Professor wrote a ‘pantun’ about Pakatan’s kangkung:

 

“On the recent kangkung-gate faux pas committed by an insensitive PM, Ungku Aziz penned down the following verses:

 

Pucuknya angkuh memanjat bukit,
tak sedar akar terendam air parit,
rakyat mengeluh lelah dan sakit,
sedikit diberi banyak diungkit.

 

Pucuknya angkuh memanjat bukit,
Tak sedar akar diair parit,
Bagaikan melepas anjing tersepit,
Dah jadi pemimpin, rakyat digigit.” – The Malaysian Insider and Malaysia Chronicle.

 

But today, The Star wrote an article entitled, “Ungku Aziz denies writing ‘kangkung’ statement”.

The Star wrote that Royal Professor Ungku Aziz told Bernama:

 

“I deny it 100 percent. It is a lie in which my name and photograph was used for other people’s interests…I don’t have a Twitter account and I did not make any such statement.
“I don’t know who did it and for what purpose. This is propaganda to strain my relationship with the prime minister and it’s mean,” he told Bernama – The Star.

 

So, TMI and MC both published an article written by a Pakatan’s DAP leader that wrongly accused Royal Professor Ungku Aziz as supporting ‘PR’s kangkung’ so much that he wrote a ‘pantun’ about kangkung.

This shows how PR’s bloggers love to spin and create stories until they themselves do not know which issue is a lie and which a is real issue.

When a leader did that kind of mistake, it destroys the leader’s credibility.

And the Pakatan’s friendly news portals destroyed the credibility of Raub Member of Parliament by publishing the article, as what Royal Professor Ungku Aziz told Bernama:

 

“To those who love propaganda, I advise then to stop such unhealthy activities,” – BERNAMA.

 

Pakatan claims that it is Utusan that spin stories but today they have ‘accidentally’ show us the truth.

Pakatan is too eager to play the #kangkung issue that they do not mind to defame others. 

So, who wrote the kangkung’s pantun?

I won’t be surprised if the Pakatan supporters blame UMNO, “Itu konspirasi UMNO”.

Dear Ro,
It is not funny. By the way PERKASA has nothing to do with #kangkung. And what has PERKASA done to you to make you so angry?
