The recent news of the DAP-led opposition’s news portal (Sarawak Report) stalking Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, the wife of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak should not come as a complete surprise.
Having failed to come up on any dirt on Prime Minister Najib Razak, the opposition’s next move is to try and find something to smear his wife (Datin Rosmah), other members of his family or those he is close to with.
The Sarawak news ‘reporter’s actions toward Datin Rosmah amounted to trying to bait her so that she would react. This is similar to what the Paparazzi in the USA do when they try to get a celebrity to lash out after being harassed. The reporter usually hurls out some outlandish claim ir some slanderous claim in order to elicit a reaction from their stalked target; then the reporters news portal prints it along with a salacious headline
However, a visiting head of state or their spouse should be afforded more respect than to be treated in such a manner.
The total lack of decorum that Sarawak Report’s reporters had shown toward the first lady of Malaysia is rightly termed low class.
In Raja Petra Kamarudin ‘No Holds Barred’ article, RPK eludes to Mat Salleh (White) privilege when it comes to dealing the 90 plus percent of the world who are not Mat Salleh.
It appears that the DAP-led opposition’s foreign news mouth piece believe that they have been granted some moral divine right to treat the wife (Datin Rosmah Mansor) of Malaysia’s Prime Minister Prime Minister with utter disrespect.
It almost goes without saying that the opposition would not dare use their local hirelings to do the same thing in Malaysia that had been done in the UK for fear of the impending backlash; that is why this type of action had to take place during Datin Mansor’s visit to the UK.
Now there are those who speculate that what had transpired in the UK further proves how desperate the opposition has become in their effort to damage the image of Prime Minister Najib Razak.
Sarawak Report reporters have shown not only a total lack of respect toward Datin Mansor, but their actions also show the total lack of respect they have for the people of Malaysia and their symbols.
So what can we expect after this; will Sarawak report feel that it is also acceptable to stalk or slander Malaysia’s royalty when that serves their interest.
It seems that In the run up to the 14th general election, the DAP-opposition will stop at nothing in their attempt to throw dirt on the Prime Minister; even if that means using hirelings like Sarawak report to throw it!
