The existance of Red Bean Army, DAP’s cyber troopers is no longer a secret. If previously many doubted the number of comments and ‘likes’ for anti-government materials in the internet, all of their questions are now clear when a former DAP youth leader revealed on operations of the Red Bean Army.
According to Shen Yee Aun, the number of Red Bean Army cyber troopers are around 2000-3000 people and they are each paid around RM3000-RM8000 each. They each own between 20-50 social networking accounts and operate at a few places with two of its main offices, one in Komtar, Penang and another one in Concorde Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
DAP, however, denied this matter.
Lim Kit Siang in his blog focused on this issue and questioned the wisdom of Dato’ Seri Zahid Hamidi who made the statement regarding DAP’s Red Bean Army. Lim Kit Siang, says, there is no way that DAP spends RM15 million per month, or RM180 million each year, or RM1.08 billion for the whole six years of Red Bean Army’s operation.
Perhaps the number might look too high for us. But we should understand how important GE13 was for DAP. It is so important that they were not able to cover the intervention of Singapore’s PAP to ensure Pakatan Rakyat’s victory. DAP’s ‘Ini Kalilah’ slogan is enough to show that they have put everything on the table for GE13.
So it is not surprising why the Chinese were willing to join the 505 Rally even though all these while demonstrations are mostly done by PAS. Clearly, DAP is devastated as they lose in GE13 despite of all their efforts in adding and transferring voters to ‘strategic’ areas.
That is why, DAP still hope that Anwar would be the person who will be able to take over the power from BN through any methods possible.
However, DAP’s ambition seem unreachable after the expose on the Red Bean Army. Now, rakyat knew that the thousands of comments and ‘likes’ over anti-government materials only represent about 2000-3000 people alone. Thus, their propaganda gets weaker.
To make matters worse, when the Red Bean Army has been proven to not just be gangsters but also liars. They kept on lying even though their lies have been proven to be lies.
Such extreme lies prove that Red Bean Army are not smart cyber troopers. They are now slowly turning to become DAP’s liability where each one of the materials spread by them are doubted by their own supporters. Some DAP supporters even came up and responded on their lies, for example, the ‘blackout’ issue.
Lim Kit Siang can still deny and lie, but rakyat now know that no liars can survive unless they keep on lying. And Kit Siang chooses to keep on lying by making claims saying that the Red Bean Army does not exist. It is weird that he does not criticize Shen Yee Aun, the source who exposed Red Bean Army. Instead, he criticized Dato’ Seri Zahid Hamidi.
Fact is, anyone can confirm the existence of these idiotic cyber troopers if they really observe the activities in the internet, especially in social networking sites.
Just imagine how can a single material hitting the government could receive more than 50,000 ‘likes’ within a single hour? And how can a single article in Malaysiakini receive hundreds of comments in less than an hour with all commenters accounts do not have any display pictures on?
Thus, before Lim Kit Siang question the wisdom of Dato’ Seri Zahid Hamidi, it would be better for him to look into himself first. What kind of leader spends millions of ringgit to pay for idiotic army? What kind of leader fights by lying?
Now, it has been proven that millions of ringgit invested by DAP and PAP has burned just like that. Red Bean Army has been exposed. Today, these cyber troopers had to go around places following Anwar to illegal rallies.
Kit Siang, who is wise and who is stupid?
