The cherry on a pile of BS: Noynoy Aquino comfy in bed with the Malaysian police state

What is the government of Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III doing in bed with a police state like Malaysia to begin with? This is, after all, a regime that is the antithesis of every piece of the Philippines’ Aquino-Cojuangco feudal clan’s Yellowist rhetoric. President BS Aquino ascended to power on the back of talk and symbolism that advocates the supremacy of the “people’s will”, some sort of “fight” for “reform”, an upholding of a right to expression and self-determination, and — get this — transparency as key to all that.

Malaysia is all about everything that is anythig but.

Malaysians like it rough.
Malaysians like it rough.

Malaysia under the regime of its Prime Minister Najib Razak is known for its appalling record of human rights abuse. Back in 2011, an Amnesty International report cited the way Malaysian police allegedly used excessive force to quell a peaceful protest rally organised to demand electoral reform.

Police arrested peaceful demonstrators, fired teargas canisters directly at protesters, and teargassed a hospital compound on 9 July, in attempts to stop the electoral reform rally known as Bersih 2.0 from gathering in a stadium.

One protester, 56-year-old Baharuddin Ahmad, collapsed near the landmark Petronas Towers while fleeing teargas, and was pronounced dead later in hospital.

“Prime Minister Najib’s government rode roughshod over thousands of Malaysians exercising their right to peaceful protest,” said Donna Guest, deputy Asia-Pacific director at Amnesty International.

“This violent repression by the Royal Malaysian Police flies in the face of international human rights standards, and cannot be allowed to continue. Any future peaceful demonstrations should be permitted and respected by the authorities.”

More recently, a Human Rights Watch report describes how the human rights record of Malaysia has in the last several years remained unprogressive and may have even regressed despite token gestures on the part of its government to institute “reforms”. Notable of all is the approach its police force takes to maintain peace…

Malaysian police appear to routinely violate the rights of persons in custody, Human Rights Watch said. Police personnel have employed unnecessary or excessive force during demonstrations, while carrying out arrests, and in police lockups. Deaths in custody, routinely attributed to disease, go uninvestigated, suspects are beaten to coerce confessions, and criminal suspects die in suspicious circumstances during apprehension by police. Alleged police abuses go uninvestigated.

Malaysian immigration law still does not recognize refugees and asylum seekers, and prohibits them from working and their children from going to school. Unauthorized migrants face arrest and detention in unsanitary and overcrowded immigration detention centers, and caning for violating the immigration law. Anti-trafficking efforts conflate human trafficking with people smuggling, and punishes rather than protects trafficking victims by holding them in inadequate, locked shelters that resemble detention centers rather than care facilities. The government continues to do little to protect migrant domestic workers from beatings and sexual abuse by their employers.

Indeed, take stock of how well President BS Aquino remained consistent with his own propaganda, and you will find that the Yellow One has spent the last three years living up to his name’s now-iconic two-letter acronym. His collusion with the Malaysian police state against his own people in a blatant contradiction of everything his so-called campaign platform stood for tops the hump year of his six-year term as “president” of this sad modern-day by-product of Spanish imperialism. The only aspect that one might consider consistent in the conduct of the Second Aquino Administration is how yellow they now come across — not in the sense of how the colour symbolises the Pinoy “Fight” but in the sense of how the rest of the world really thinks of what it means to be yellow.

It is hardly surprising now that even his closest cohorts — the men and women he is trying to infest the Senate with in the coming May elections, and the Media lapdogs whose loyalties his Uncle Peping likely spent a lot of money cultivating now struggle to themselves remain consistent with all the BS. There is, after all, only so much BS one can take — and dish out.

“It is a paradox that every ‘dictator’ has climbed to power on the ladder of free speech. Immediately on attaining power each ‘dictator’ then tries to suppress all free speech except his own.”
Herbert Hoover

Birds of a feather stick together, so no surprise aquino is helping malaysia, even at the expense of the national interest, and malaysia is playing him like a puppet.

He is helping nobody. It is already stated that our government cannot do anything more so Kiram’s men that is now in Malaysian Borneo must surrender without conditions and solve this peacefully.

Nope. Another solution: go back to the Philippines and discuss about this, in order to find a solution.

BS Aquino is collaborating with a foreign state. The Malaysian police state is a friend of BS. It is true that BS Aquino slept on the brewing problem which has now escalated. Malaysian forces went on search and destroy mode and the most recent Philippine Star story today states: “KL: No ceasefire, wipe out all militants.” Does this mean that genocide and ethnic cleansing are not far behind? BS Aquino will pay dearly in terms of political suicide and repercussions should these come to pass.

He has high ratings in different surveys so why do you think he will pay? Besides, it is only Kiram that brought this chaos. He is the one who will pay.

Your comment is BS because….

Surveys are BIASED. They’re always MANIPULATED.

Oh yeah, let Kiram should decided that because Noynoy doesn’t even know ANYTHING and doesn’t even know what to do about the situation. Because he knows NOTHING.

yup

Surveys huh? riiight..oh, by the way he is not only sleeping with the RMP (Royal Malaysian Police) but with the police state that is Malaysia..the used of fighter jets against combatants and non-combatants alike is a Modus operandi of a TOTALITARIAN STATE, like what happening before with the Russians and the Chechens..and btw, Malaysia is in the forefront of creating that abomination of the Islamofascist State of BangsaMoro in Mindanao, a very excellent legacy of the Yellow Emperor and his dynasty, cheers to your boss! tsk, tsk!

Not only is your bald faggot of a boss sleeping with the malaysians, he is also kissing their a$$es as well. Your beloved leader will soon learn that not everyone is happy with his clear betrayal of our muslim brothers to the malaysians.

Aquino will not pay anything. The idiots that went to invade a foreign country as if they own it are going to be slaughtered as the invaders the rulers of Malaysia say they are, it is their country! It is laughable to think that Aquino and his non-existent armed forces can do much of anything to help avoid the slaughter of these mis-guided idiots that are so far being treated decently for the fact that they have not been slaughtered…yet!OR to think that Aquino is responsible for the idiots actions and/or well being.

… or Noynoy and his cabinet could’ve simply played the chips they had the wrong way — that they thought of the Sabah issue as an intractable one and acted accordingly.

There is no need to jump to conclusions and accuse the President of something so grievous without further proof to back it up, even if that President is someone who has been a bumbling idiot of himself here, and even if that President is someone this site has made its raison d’etre to hate with all-consuming passion.

Sabah claim: A tale of two versions Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram III’s defiance against calls for his army in Lahad Datu to surrender despite having lost his soldiers in a shootout with Malaysian security forces and his men’s decision to “die in Lahad Datu” has stoked the curiosityof Sabahans. His daring modus operandi in claiming Sabah as his rightful homeland has awakened the curiosity of many here who are in the dark or have only a vague knowledge about the historical background of Jamalul’s Sabah claim. Why did Jamalul make his move now? In his own words he can no… Read more »

u kno, so what? if someone owned something a long time ago and lost it in a war, they lost it! if they want it back they can try to take it back, IN A WAR! but just because some one owned something a long time ago means nothing, especially to the people who own it now and will destroy anyone who thinks they are going to take what they think is theirs. Like Meheecans and Santa Ana that lost the war, get over it or do something about it.Bitching and blaming others will get the ‘Sultanate’,HA! nowhere, FAST…just watch,… Read more »

@Glenn

The Philippines didn’t lose Sabah as a result of a war. It was leased to Malaysia. To quote: “In Jan 23, 1878, the Ruler of Sulu, Sultan Jamalul Alam leased Sabah (formerly known as North Borneo) to Gustavus Von Overbeck for an annual rent of equivalent 5,000 dollars through Von Overbeck’s trading partner Alfred Dent. It was also recorded that this amount of money (USD1,500 per year) is still being paid to the heirs of the Sulu Sultan by the Malaysian Embassy in the Philippines until today.”

Dent was Overback’s backer. Dent & Co. were a British “Hong” trading with China; they had lost a lot of money in the financial crash of 1866 (the Overend Gurney crash) and had to sell their Hong Kong interests to Jardines (if you shop in Hong Kong, The Landmark is where Dent’s original office, also called The Landmark, stood – it’s owned by Hong Kong Land i.e. Jardines. Dents wanted to get back into the big time. Overback was the Austrian Consul in Hong Kong. He took over an earlier lease of Sabah to an American who could not get… Read more »

how or what happened a long time ago does not matter. they are not getting it back, ,not now…not ever. Sounds like the deal the Iriquois Indians made when they leased the State of New York. The Iriquois always felt cheated, but the reality is if they had not signed the lease, they’d have been slaughtered sooner. They got what they got, and were lucky to get it. and so it goes with this idiot ‘Sultan’. This guys followers are not only naïve, but in doing what they have done (and expecting anything but being slaughtered), they appear devoid of… Read more »

The government whine like a 6 year old that they cannot do any more!

Exactly, because Aquino and his 3rd raters are devoid of intellect, problem solving, and diplomatic skills, and are therefore happy just to go along with whatever malaysia wants to do.

Singapore news today contrasted the action of malaysia with the inaction of the philippines, and that aquino wants to remain arms length from the issue.

Aquino is so dumb that if you gave him a peso for every braincell, you would get change from a 10 peso coin.

Sabah could be aquino’s banana skin.

What is Aquino going to do? negotiate what? it is not up for discussion who’s land it is, as far as Malaysia is concerned, so what is to negotiate? ‘Please don’t kill the idiots who just invaded your country.”? If he gets involved, it should be with a big god dam stick, but he doesn’t have one! the ‘Sultan of Sulu’, ha!

@Glenn BS Aquino needs to stop campaigning and focus on the problem. PNoy could have prevented the bloodshed had he stopped campaigning and focused on dealing with Kiram personally. He thought the problem would simply go away by simply issuing a few threatening statements via the media. Like what I wrote in my recent article: He is fully aware of Sultan Kiram’s whereabouts. He is not even in hiding. Would a terrorist hold a press conference? The answer is no. Kiram currently resides in Taguig, Manila. That is only a few kilometers away from Malacanang. It’s a mind boggling exercise… Read more »

Whatever Aquino thinks, in this case, does not matter. The Sultan lives on Luzon, he is not getting anything back, and apparently knows it.
Aquino talking to the guy would only acknowledge him as some sort of political entity, which he is not. The Sultan should just realize he is done, stick a fork in himself and tell his followers to go home before they get sent home….in boxes.
There is no ‘fair’.

Libertas

Mix arrogance with intransigence, stupidity with self-interest, and inexperience with laziness, and it is hardly surprising that aquino makes a balls up on something which should never have escalated to this degree in the first place, and then he simply compounds his inability to problem solve by making up conspiracy theories, getting rosario to take the blame, and sticking his head in the sand.

I read your title “comfy in bed with the Malaysian police state” and I can’t help think of what I wrote in response to the libel portion of the Cybercrime Act as signed by BS Aquino. That it was never modelled after any existing law in any first world nation but oddly enough resembled the actual cyber law in Iran. The same place lead by guy who claims there are no homosexuals in his nation.

The self-styled Sultan of Sulu Jamalul Kiram III has declared himself as the “poorest” Ruler in the world, saying that he had consented to his brother leading a group of armed followers to move to Sabah in search of work and a better life. He (Jamalul) says, “I’m the poorest sultan in the world,” told newswire Associated Press (AP) when interviewed in his tumble-down two-storey residence in a poor section of Manila. He had not intended to reclaim Sabah but wanted more money than the current RM5,300 (P70,000) in annual stipend paid to the Sulu Sultanate, arguing that the sum… Read more »

Right. So far as Kiram is concerned, it’s all about “more money” He actually asked for a billon dollars a year in 2010.

But I think the actual fighters and arms will have come from the MNLF. Nur Misuari has some explaining to do – he was surely trying to cut a deal for himself having been left out of the Bangsamoro talks – and the MILF deserve credit for not getting sucked into this mess.

Dinu
Guest
Wouldn’t that make Kiram easy to deal with? Why was this not pursued then? Or I guess a few lives lost is less costly than one billion dollars. I might agree with that, but the thing is, once the violence started the body count will pile up at an undetermined rate and extent. Similarly, with Nur Misuari, why not include him in the talks then? Better that he talk rather than kill. Why praise the MILF for being self-serving in keeping out of what could jeopardize the sweet deal they now have? If anything, I’d credit them for enlightening the… Read more »

The problem Iam thingking right now is the Bangsamoro Framework, which is to some are the root of this mess, by excluding the MNLF group lead by Misuari. Blame the MNLF, give credit to MILF? Jeez, If the Framework is aimed for peace, why do they not include everyone? Why only the MILF?

I can relate the framework to a famous quote of Abe Lincon
” A house divided by itself cannot stand”
By excluding others in the framework, it made the Moros more divided. Peace will not happen if there is no unity.

Looks like the shit hit the fan. I was reading the Philippine Star(online and broadsheet) this morning. One online news item says that women and children are being deliberately targeted. Is this the beginning of genocide and/or ethnic cleansing? BS Aquino will have to answer for this under the doctrine of command responsibility. All this for failing to act in defusing the situation in Sabah. I also urge all concerned to get a copy of the Philippine Star. Mr. Bobit S. Avila revealed and confirmed the coming communist coup which would lead to the downfall of freedom and democracy in… Read more »

Thomas, the news online news says that our women and children are being deliberately targeted is purely false.
This statement is fabricated by Jamalul Kiram’s daughter, Jacel Kiram.
I know this fact from my 2 brothers and a sister who are working in kota kinabalu.
In fact, malaysia rejected Jamalul’s call for ceasefire yesterday, demanding instead that the self-claimed “sultan” order his men to lay down arms peacefully and unconditionally, because malaysia label the bandits as terorist.

The saddest part of the whole mess the Philippines is in for a long time now is that there is NO democracy and very little ‘freedom’. The elections are rigged, the people who run the government are just a bunch of thieves grabbing as many peso’s as they can shove in ‘foreign currency’ accounts that are not allowed to be looked into. The theft is so common-place it is now done with arrogance, and will not stop until ‘STOPPED, DEAD IN ITS TRACKS’.

235 men were promised US$600 each, land in Sabah and “Royal Titles” to join this raid.

All that has been achieved by these dupes and those who duped them has been to make many journalists abd bloggers in the Filipino chattering classes look very, very stupid.

Which probably will not be a bad thing.

I used to take BenignO’s claim to stand for something different seriously.

“235 men were promised US$600 each, land on Sabah, and “Royal Titles” to join this raid.”

You know, Edwin Lacierda said something along that line. And it remains a mystery where “the media” where he got these claims from is. I am hardly inclined to believe a pronouncement from someone whose job it is to spin bullshit to cover his master’s ass.

You’d best be wary, too. That’s what begging to differ is about.

Here is my analysis of the building situation… BS Aquino and his followers are now into black propaganda blame games mode. He is obviously against the Sultanate of Sulu and for the dark interests of Malaysia. The name of the game is to divide and conquer the Sultanate of Sulu and other Muslims who believe in the Sabah claim. Al Haj Murad Ebrahim is the man who would be king in Mindanao. He is silent on the issue. He is also in formal alliance with the CPP-NPA-NDF. Remember that he is the friend of BS Aquino who gave him all… Read more »
