Forum on Negarakuku Controversy

Posted: August 19, 2007 in Freedom of Speech

With all the hu-ha concerning the Negarakuku video clip that Namewee produced not so long ago, the whole country especially the dungus up there have got into a frenzy making something out of nothing resulting in chaos. Well anyway due to the massive highlight of this I suppose it only makes sense that a public forum be held to discuss the controversy and patriotism in this context. Among issues that will be discussed will be inter-ethnic relations in Malaysia, lesson from the past etc.

According to<“Bobjots blog”>, a competition for The Most Creative Alternative Negaraku Video Clip will also be launched. Details are as follows:

Monday, 20 August 2007

    Daniel aka Gallivanter’s version of Negaraku is probably even more controversial, it’s been on youtube since March: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Tdwk-XOWE1U

    Actually its not so much about the content,its rather how much publicity it gets. If the video insults gila-gila also and only you and me watch it, they couldn’t be bothered. But on the other hand, namewee videos has been watched on such a large scale so they can’t let him go scott free that would be bad for their image.
