Wee Ka Siong Sued

This is quite funny.

Outspoken MCA Youth Secretary, Dr Wee Ka Siong must be regretting his crass attempts at poking fun at Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's sodomy trial (in which he has been acquitted). Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim must be having the last laugh now, leaving Dr Wee with sleepless nights rueing his tasteless comments at a Machap ceramah.

Wee, the Ayer Hitam MP, addressed several hundred supporters in a mixture of Mandarin and Hakka, labelling Anwar as someone who “can say one thing then and something else now. For him, front is okay, back is also okay”.

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has since demanded a public apology and RM10 million in damages from MCA Youth secretary Dr Wee Ka Siong for a remark deemed to insinuate that the former is homosexual. So it's now a real RM10 million pain in the a** for Dr Wee.

Not only does Wee make tasteless remarks, he's also a pretty good cover up artist. In the recent challenge issued by DAP Socialist Youth (DAPSY) to MCA Youth to a debate in Machap, the latter did not possess the courage to turn up at the stage prepared for them in Machap Baru. This was despite the fact that MCA Youth has put all sorts of conditions for a debate to happen in the media, particularly in the Chinese press.

At the end of the day, despite meeting their conditions to debate, they failed to show after promising to turn up. To save face, this very same Dr Wee, told his ceramah crowd that we didn't prepare a stage for the debate and that their target Sdr Anthony Loke, DAPSY Secretary, wasn't present. Blatant lies? You decide.

Let's just say that the TV cameras, and the picture above showed that we had a stage, with a separate rostrum and functioning microphone patiently awaiting their arrival. And as you can see, unlike the MCA counterparts, Sdr Anthony Loke, was present and ever ready for the challenge. But Dr Wee clearly did have what it takes to meet the DAPSY's frontal challenge, but instead could only meekly attempt to stab us from the back.

Well, he certainly deserved the suit from Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. And as usual, like typical BN members who shoots without thinking, he is now in total denial. "It was taken out of context. There was no (such) connotation."

To be fair to Dr Wee, we have him to thank, for finally raising the issue of our universities' obsession with coloured medals at trade exhibitions, which the Star had graciously given him frontpage coverage. After all, this issue has been raised many times since nearly 2 years ago by Sdr Lim Kit Siang and myself. Dr Wee may be late, but it's certainly better late then never. ;)

Oh, and I know the MCA publicity department reads my blog too. Thanks for visiting ;)
