When Umno does it, it's fighting for their race. When you complain about them doing it, it's seditious.

According to Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Mohd Johari Baharum, the government will monitor closely "certain" newspapers. Adding that the government would not hesitate to take stern action against any publication containing "seditious material".

"There is a Chinese newspaper which raises issues that can create alarm among the people,"
The government must share my views about what is seditious and what's not. Obviously, waving kerises, theatening mindless violence (amok) and calling for the bloodbath of non-Malays and non-Muslims is NOT seditious.
See here: Why UMNO delegates' speeches are NOT seditious.
I haven't read the Chinese newspaper mentioned, but I venture a guess that writing on the topic - of being unhappy about waved kerises, complaining about being threatened with mindless violence and expressing disgustover calls for bloodbaths - is seditious.

This is SOME country, ain't it?!

Besides that, the government also has something up it's sleeves with regards to political books and DVDs (some of which were distributed during the recently held Umno General Assembly including Malaysia-Today's Khairy Chronicles).

See here: Mahathir vs Abdullah Badawi. According to the Khairy Chronicles

And here: PDF file of the book compiling the Khairy Chronicles

And they've also got some beef about SMSes like the one about the alleged mass baptism of Muslims in Silibin. Read the original article here: Government Steps Up Monitoring Of Errant Publications.

Some have filed police reports regarding the seditious speeches made by certain umno delegates, but, as usual, the polis has double standard and are closing one eye on this matter.
