Bersih 4: Why Is Ah Jib's Administration Afraid Of The Rally?

Bersih 4 rally is a day from now and it seems that efforts are earnestly underway to frustrate it and scare away participants.

Out of nowhere, red-shirted, obviously pro-government goons appeared in a public demonstration to show off their martial prowess and then warned that they would be at the rally in what appears a naked attempt to scare away people from
attending the rally.


Bersih's official website is now being been blocked. If you try to access it, you will get the 404 notification.

We even have the chief of the armed forces coming out to say that they are ready should the Ah Jib administration declare an emergency.

Who is talking about an emergency?

The Bersih 4 rally is ultimately all about calling for an accountable and a responsible government.

No sane and genuine participants would turn the rally violent when that would only justify the efforts to demonise and frustrate the rally and turn it against Bersih and the people.

Why is Ah Jib's administration so afraid of such a innocuous call?

Are they telling Bolehlanders that they are not an accountable and a responsible government?

If they are not and have nothing to hide, they should welcome the rally and assure the people that where they have been remiss they apologise and will see to rectifying the mistakes, including stepping down where that will help to allay the people's mistrust.

The more they threaten and try to frustrate the rally from proceeding peacefully, or from proceeding at all by locking down the capital, the more they make themselves out to be rogues who have unsavoury and even criminal things to hide.

The more then why the rally is justified and needs to proceed to tell the government of the day that it needs to buck up or ship out for others to take over and call for a snap general election.

UPDATE: How desperate the efforts seem to be to further frustrate Bersih 4 can be gleaned from the latest news  of the despicable attempt to scare the Chinese from the rally with the threat of a Chinese 'bloodbath'  Whoever those responsible for the threat may be, they have to realise that the rally is a national one and any effort to pit one race against another or paint the rally as a particular attempt to to topple the government will only fly in their own faces. Bolehlanders are no longer easily fooled nor are they easily cowed anymore. The era of the internet and easy access to information has put paid to wicked devices hoping to work their devious 'magic'

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
