Wee Meng Chee

I have been a follower of Wee Meng Chee or "Namewee" on Youtube. He was originally from Muar and he came back after finishing his studies in Taiwan. I've started looking up on his "creativity" after he sparked an outrage with a cover version of Malaysia's National Song - Negaraku. His made that short video clip back in 2007 when he was still in Taiwan and named it "Negarakuku" which means "My country which has gone crazy".

Following his short video clip on Youtube, his family came out to apologies to the public and same goes to Wee Meng Chee. In fact, "Namewee" was actually trying to highlight the problems being faced by many Malaysians which he accused the government of putting a blind eye on the matter. A good example will be the small "kopi" money which vehicle owners would have to pay instead of getting a hefty fine from the traffic police and so on.

Fast forward two years after that, he made a few short video clips highlighting the problem with the National Utility Board or Tenaga National. He made the video clip when his place in Muar experienced frequent blackouts but not the National Utility Board. He questioned the productivity of those officers involved in solving the frequent blackouts in his area but it falls onto deaf years. That was what prompt him to make the video clip.

Recently, he made another video clip which highlighted the cruelty of those two head of school in Malaysia for being racism. The matter of those two head of school was reported in the newspapers but no action was taken against those two. I do believe that "Namewee" was really sick and tired of it so he made a short video clip condeming those two head of school for their bad behaviour since the government has taken no action.

Not suprisingly "Namewee" was criticised by the government for his action in trying to stir up racial discrimination. I am not surprised because they can shutdown "Namewee" anytime they want as they are still in power.

My point here is - Where is the love? Where is justice? I am trying to be neutral and fair over here. Just hear me out.
