Khairy should stop being a hypocrite by equating a personal facebook status update to the act of a road bully. While the facebook status update by Kelvin Yip is inappropriate, it was a personal facebook status update(not a public status update) which is only limited to his facebook friends. This could be clearly seen from the facebook setting from the screenshot Khairy posted.
If Khairy insists that Kelvin Yip should be charged, he must answer the more pertinent question in this issue – under what act should Kelvin Yip be charged? Is it the Sedition Act that Najib promised to repeal more than two years ago?
If Sedition Act were to be used in this case, what about the people(which includes Khairy) who were distributing and sharing the screenshot of the status update? Weren’t they as guilty as they were promoting feelings of ill-will and hostility between different races or classes of the population of Malaysia?
If Khairy is serious in seeking justice for all and ask for all deserving criminals to be charged, Khairy needs only to look into the mirror. What about the UMNO Youth who publicly storm DAP Headquarters in KL vandalizing private property? Do they deserve to be charged? Why is there no action taken despite nationwide police reports lodged against UMNO Youth?
