Controversial sex blogger Alvin Tan breaks his silence and challenges Umno to take action against him.
Alvin Tan, Vivian LeePETALING JAYA: Controversial sex blogger Alvin Tan, currently on the run from the authorities, has posted a slew of insulting remarks about Malaysia’s top leaders.
Among them were Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, Home Minister Zahid Hamidi, Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar and Attorney-General (AG) Abdul Gani Patail.
In his Facebook page he defended his right to express himself freely, Tan said, “I’ll say whatever I damn well please.”
While likening Khalid to the Nazi SS Head Heinrich Himmler, Tan referred to Najib as a coward for allowing the sedition spree to take place “just to cling on top”.
He also described Zahid as the “closest thing to true evil”, and the AG as the “biggest conspirator” in all prosecutions.
Along with the insults, Tan posted a challenge to Umno that read, “So what are you going to do now?”
Explaining why he decided to break his silence even before his asylum claim was approved, Tan said keeping silent for his own benefit would have been “deeply unethical”.
He also asked, “But if people like me don’t speak up … who else is going to do it?” adding everyone in Malaysia was living in fear these days.
Reported to be seeking asylum in the United States as a “political refugee”, Tan also said that while prosecuting political opponents for saying things was “just business as usual”, charging them with sedition was like declaring war on them.
He added, “… arresting activists, lawyers, journalists, religious leaders, and even professors and ordinary people for expressing opinions on social media is like declaring an all-out war on everyone and everything that Malaysians stand for.”
The sex blogger also claimed, “It is Umno who decides what is offensive.”
Bravo to Alvin, though I do not condone sex blogging but  what he said was on the DOT about our leaders and the IGP. Let the world now know about THIS!!!
