Warning: Don't ever go against a Dictator

MM Online - Dr M insists wasn’t a dictator (extracts):


His Imperial Majesty Emperor Kutty bin Abdullah 

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 17 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today insisted his voluntary resignation from power and the elections during his time precluded him from being a “dictator”.

Despite the Pakatan Harapan chairman's insistence that holding polls meant he could not be a dictator, he appeared to suggest this defence did not apply to the “the current one”.

“Dictators often do not hold elections, or if they do they would win 99 per cent of the votes,” he wrote on his blog today.

“I resign voluntarily. I was not succeeded by my son but by party leaders who immediately tried to get the party and their governments to go against me,” Dr Mahathir said.


Everyone? 

This is funny yet outrageous, as it shows the intolerant dictator in Mahathir if those (highlighted) words "to go against me" have been correctly reported.

Mahathir is saying that even after he resigned, AAB and Najib should NOT have gone against him, presumably his policies, his projects, his instructions.






Recall - this is the man who has the preposterous shameless nerve to say he has TWO (not one) successors.

Which PM in the world has TWO successors?


The answer can only be those who believes HE alone hands down the PM office each and every time to each and everyone who comes after him, deeming himself as a PERPETUAL PM who gives way only to a person who acts/works for him as PM (but is not really the PM) and who does NOT go against him ...

... and woe betide the one who goes against him, his policies, his projects, his instructions, whereupon he will pass his permanent position as PERPETUAL PM to the next person who acts/works for him as PM (but is not really the PM) and who does NOT go against him ...

... so on so forth.

What a megalomaniac!

P/S And how dare Najib did not report to me for 6 months.




Pribumi member claimed Nothing2Hide chaos was deliberately started by Pribumi

MM Online - PPBM (PRIBUMI) leader says ‘Nothing To Hide’ fracas started by own party members (extracts):


SHAH ALAM, Aug 17 ― A Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) leader today claimed that the fracas at the “Nothing to Hide 2.0” forum last Sunday was caused by party members themselves and that their anger was directed at him.

Wan Mohammad Ashraf Nasjaruddin, PPBM Shah Alam security director, also said that he had received death threats as well.


He said he had lodged two police reports, one over the fracas and the other on the death threats.

“I lodged the first police report because I want the police to investigate the fracas. A video clip of the forum shows that the chairs were hurled in my direction and not towards PPBM chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

“I suspect that those involved were from among the organising committee, secretariat and several PPBM members themselves.

“The chaos was triggered to prevent me from asking Dr Mahathir several other questions after those on the Memali incident were asked by others,” he said to reporters after lodging the reports at the Shah Alam Police headquarters here.


Wan Mohammad Ashraf said that following the fracas, he received death threats from unidentified individuals on the PPBM Facebook account.

The threats were also directed at his family and it was for safety reasons that he lodged the second police report, he said.

Wan Mohammad Ashraf also called on PPBM Youth chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman to resign, saying the latter had failed to ensure the security of guests at the forum.

“I am prepared to remain in the party and challenge him until he resigns,” he said.


Possible?

Or as Pakatan Harapan supporters would vow, dia dah makan, bukan bukan, telan (wakakaka) dedak.

Recall the Taiwan presidential elections on 20 March 2004. Two days later (22 March 2014) the Australian ABC reported:

Taiwan's high court sealed election ballot boxes on Sunday as protesters massed to contest President Chen Shui-bian's victory after a mysterious assassination attempt and the discovery of many spoiled ballots.


Chen Shui-bian 

Defeated Nationalist Party contender Lien Chan called for a recount and a special inquiry into the shooting of incumbent Mr Chen on the eve of Saturday's poll that swung the vote in the island's closest-ever presidential election.


Lien Chan 

Joining thousands of cheering supporters staging a sit-in outside the presidential palace, Mr Lien demanded answers to the many questions surrounding Friday's shooting in which Chen and Vice President Annette Lu were slightly wounded.

"Why don't we trust the government? Because there are too many things under a cloud of suspicion," Mr Lien, the scion of one of Taiwan's wealthiest families, told his supporters.

There has been widespread speculation that the shooting may have been staged, but officials have denied this.

Media surveys had pointed to a win for Mr Lien and analysts said an 11th-hour sympathy vote may have given this narrowest of wins to Mr Chen, who was fired at twice by at least one unidentified gunman.

He sustained a minor gunshot wound while campaigning in an open-top jeep.

The Nationalist Party also accused Chen Shui-bian of staging the shooting to draw away police and military from the voting as the forces were deemed pro-Nationalist Party.

Investigation into the shooting point to Chen Yi-hsiung who conveniently died prior to the police apprehending him.


CNN Photo of Chen Shui-bian on March 19, 2004, purporting to show a large blood stain 

In 2009 Chen Shui-bian, wife and son-in-law were convicted of various charges such as corruption, embezzlement and misuse of official funds and money laundering, and jailed. His life sentence was subsequently reduced.

Earlier in Indonesia we may ask how did Suharto come to power, some say, with the connivance of the CIA which was concerned about Soekarno's dalliance with the USSR.

As usual, the Cinapeks (capitalists or otherwise) were massacred along with pribumi komunis.

Wikipedia (extract only) tell us that in Indonesia:

Before dawn on 1 October 1965, six army generals were kidnapped and executed in Jakarta by soldiers from the Presidential Guard, Diponegoro Division, and Brawidjaja Division. Soldiers occupied Merdeka Square including the areas in front of the Presidential Palace, the national radio station, and telecommunications centre. At 7:10 am Untung bin Sjamsuri announced on radio that the "30 September Movement" had forestalled a coup attempt on Sukarno by "CIA-backed power-mad generals", and that it was "an internal army affair".

The 30 September Movement never made any attempt on Suharto's life. Suharto had been in Jakarta army hospital that evening with his three-year-old son Tommy who had a scalding injury. It was here that he was visited by Colonel Abdul Latief, a key member of 30 September Movement and close family friend of Suharto.

According to Latief's later testimony, the conspirators assumed Suharto to be a Sukarno-loyalist, hence Latief went to inform him of the impending kidnapping plan to save Sukarno from treacherous generals, upon which Suharto seemed to offer his neutrality.

Upon being told of the killings, Suharto went to KOSTRAD headquarters just before dawn from where he could see soldiers occupying Merdeka Square. He mobilized KOSTRAD and RPKAD (now Kopassus) special forces to seize control of the centre of Jakarta, capturing key strategic sites including the radio station without resistance.

Suharto announced over the radio at 9:00 pm that six generals had been kidnapped by "counter-revolutionaries" and that the 30 September Movement actually intended to overthrow Sukarno. He said he was in control of the army, and that he would crush the 30 September Movement and safeguard Sukarno.

Suharto issued an ultimatum to Halim Air Force Base, where the G30S had based themselves and where Sukarno, air force commander Omar Dhani and PKI chairman Dipa Nusantara Aidit had gathered, causing them to disperse before Suhartoist soldiers occupied the air base on 2 October after short fighting.

With the failure of the poorly organised coup, and having secured authority from the president to restore order and security, Suharto's faction was firmly in control of the army by 2 October (he was officially appointed army commander on 14 October). On 5 October, Suharto led a dramatic public ceremony to bury the generals' bodies.

Complicated and partisan theories continue to this day over the identity of the attempted coup's organisers and their aims. The army's version, and subsequently that of the "New Order", was that the PKI was solely responsible.

A propaganda campaign by the army, and Islamic and Catholic student groups, convinced both Indonesian and international audiences that it was a communist coup attempt, and that the killings were cowardly atrocities against Indonesian heroes.

The army in alliance with religious civilian groups led a campaign to purge Indonesian society, government, and armed forces of the communist party and leftist organisations.

The purge spread from Jakarta to much of the rest of the country. (see: Indonesian killings of 1965–1966). The most widely accepted estimates are that at least half a million were killed. As many as 1.5 million were imprisoned at one stage or another.

As a result of the purge, one of Sukarno's three pillars of support, the Indonesian Communist Party, was effectively eliminated by the other two, the military and political Islam.


Many in Indonesia said the CIA was the schemer of Gestapu which crippled the PKI (Indon Communist Party) and brought pro-West Suharto into power.

Atheism threatening Malaysia

FMT - IGP warns atheist group not to cause uneasiness (extracts):



KUALA LUMPUR: Police today warned an atheist group not to cause uneasiness among Malaysians, particularly the Muslims, with their activities.

Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar, who issued the warning, said the group must abide by the laws.

“I advise this atheist group not to cause uneasiness, particularly among Muslims who reject atheism,” he told a news conference after witnessing a transfer of duty in the narcotics criminal investigation department and pinning on new rank insignias for senior officers.

Last week, the special officer to the prime minister, Rizal Mansor, expressed his concern over the appearance of an atheist club in Malaysia.

Rizal said the club should not be treated lightly.


Though sweet naive darling kaytee is an atheist, wakakaka, this is the first time I have heard of the atheist club called, I believe, the Atheist Republic.



Atheism has to do with disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods. It is the personal belief of an individual.

For example, I come from a family whose members are variously staunch Buddhists, staunch Taoists, staunch Confucianists (Aussies called them Confucians), staunch Christians, staunch Hindus and staunch Sikh (last one singular, wakakaka).

Oh, lest I forget, there are a couple of us who are atheists, wakakaka. Recently we shivered in great fright when minister in PM's department, Shahidan Kassim (a.k.a Arsehole, wakakaka) threatened to 'hunt us down with great vehemence', until I subsequently found out the 'hunting down' was only for naughty Muslims. Phew! but sorry lah, saudara saudari.



Arsehole (wakakaka) said: “The [Federal Constitution] does not mention atheists. It goes against the Constitution and human rights,”.

“I suggest that we hunt them down vehemently and we ask for help to identify these groups.”

The Constitution also does not mention Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Taoists, Confucianists etc, but only that Islam is the national religion. As Tun Salleh Abas (former Lord President ousted by Mahathir and PAS member) said:

"At the moment, we live in a secular country. The Federal Constitution and the laws state clearly that we are living in a secular state."

"However, it is right to say that Malaysia is an Islamic country, population wise, because the majority of her citizens are Muslims. But it is wrong to say that we have an Islamic government"



Anyway, Article 11 of the Malaysian Constitution says:

Every person has the right to profess and practice his religion and, subject to Clause (4), to propagate it.

Religion is defined in dictionary as:

1. a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.

2. a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects:

Thus, IMHO, atheism (or the one I believe in) might not fall under the term 'religion' because as I mentioned above: Atheist has to do with disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods. It is the personal belief of an individual.

My last sentence eliminates 'atheism' from both No: 1 and 2 of above dictionary definition, wakakaka.



Sh*t, a former visitor to my blog, looes74, was right that I have contravened federal laws in not believing in god, though in my mitigation he mentioned I contravened the Rukun Negara instead of Article 11 of the Constitution, wakakaka.

Hmmm, what shall we atheists do? Maybe, like DAP in 2013 readying itself to stand under the banners of PAS and PKR, thanks to a potential threat from RoS, atheists could pose under the labels of Buddhists or Jainists where both religions don't have gods, wakakaka.

But on second thought, is there anything in the Constitution or Penal Code that says: Atheism is prohibited to non-Muslims?



Clause (4) of Article 11 is about controlling or restricting the propagation of any religious doctrine or belief among persons professing the religion of Islam, so atheists watch out.

Atheists do not need the adjective of 'staunch' as in 'staunch Buddhist' or 'staunch Christian' etc, wakakaka, nor do they attempt to proselytise people like devotees of the Christian and Islamic faiths do. They just don't believe in god or gods.

Note I have left out the earliest of those professing the Abrahamic religions as proselytisers. The only reason the Jews don't proselytise 'others' is because the ultra orthodox Jews are not only religious but also racists. So why would they want to convert the 'Others' (goyims or kaffirs) to join them as Jews?














I once saw/heard on an Aussie TV a guest rabbi telling off a (liberal) Jew who was the TV presenter for not dating only Jewish girls. He berated and then encouraged the younger Jew to mix only with Jewish sweeties. What a f**king racist!
























Apart from a non-proselytising practice, atheism is also NOT a movement, whether religious (or lack of), social, cultural, political, etc, so I hold great grave and ginormous suspicions about The Atheist Republic.

Why would atheism require such an organisation or club?

This entity smells.

Tell this atheist what's going on, smartie cats, wakakaka.





Something2Hide?

MM Online - PAS wants RCI on Memali incident:


A Royal Commission of Inquiry should be convened to investigate the deadly Memali police siege from the Mahathir administration, said Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.

The PAS deputy president’s call follows a riot at a forum by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s PPBM on Sunday, when questions were asked about the raid in which PAS leader Ibrahim Mahmud @ Ibrahim Libya, 13 villagers and four police officers were killed.

Tuan Ibrahim noted that there were many discrepancies in the various accounts of the Memali incident, and said a thorough investigation was necessary to reveal the truth in the tragedy.

“As such, PAS urges the formation of a RCI to re-examine the Memali tragedy, to give justice to all parties and to clear the names of the innocent,” he said in a statement.


















In a veiled swipe at PAS offshoot Amanah, Tuan Ibrahim also asked if those who previously pursued justice for Memali victims have muted their hunger for the truth simply because they needed Dr Mahathir’s political clout for the next general election.

The PAS deputy president’s call also comes after Putrajaya announced a RCI to probe Bank Negara Malaysia’s alleged foreign exchange losses, another controversy from Dr Mahathir’s time as prime minister.

According to previous reports, then-deputy prime minister Tun Musa Hitam had ordered a team of around 200 police officers to lay siege on the remote village near Baling that was occupied by around 400 of the sect’s members, led by Muslim preacher Ibrahim.


The siege was originally meant to detain Ibrahim under the Internal Security Act (ISA) but led to a clash that killed 18 people.

Musa was blamed for the deaths because he had been acting prime minister at the time, as Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was reportedly in China, but the he has since asserted that the former prime minister was in the country on the day.

On the surface of what the public knows about the Memali incident, I find it hard to justify the lawless actions of Ibrahim Libya and mob, though PAS and its supporters deem that incident as a vile police action against innocent Muslims, instigated by then-DPM Musa Hitam.

One truth emerges when Musa revealed that then-PM Mahathir was still in country but had refused to acknowledge his involvement, thus placing the entire responsibility (and any associated blame) on his deputy - a typical Mahathir modus operandi.


Regardless of whether Mahathir as PM ordered the police encirclement or Musa Hitam as DPM did so, the police did the right thing in their lawful suppression of the Memali Muslim mob.

Mind, that's the perception of kaytee who saw the video of some of the villagers armed and in trance - all very bomoh-ishly Melayu and wholly un-Islamic. Of course I acknowledge it was a police video that I saw.

Will Mahathir welcome such an RCI inquiry, at least to ascertain four issues:

(a) Were Ibrahim Libya and mob behaving unlawfully or/and dangerously and in a trance while carrying weapons?

(b) Were above Memali mob threatening the police?

(c) Were the police justified in shooting some of the Memali mob?

(d) Who was the political leader heading the federal government giving the order to the police to conduct said actions, Musa Hitam or Mahathir?


Tuan Ibrahim has been succinct in posing a question now confronting Pakatan Hrapan and which I bet, Lim Kit Siang dares not answer, namely: ... if those who previously pursued justice for Memali victims have muted their hunger for the truth simply because they needed Dr Mahathir’s political clout for the next general election ...

... which I would like to paraphrase as:

... if those who previously pursued justice for Malaysians who suffered during Mahathir's 22-year premiership have muted their hunger for the truth simply because they needed Dr Mahathir’s political clout for the next general election ...?

DNA of hooliganism, thuggery and samseng-ism

More than 10 years ago, in 1996, there was an international conference in Kuala Lumpur called Apcet II, the second ‘Asia-Pacific Conference on East Timur’ which was convened to propose a peaceful solution to the Indonesian militant oppression of East Timorese in Dili. The conference was held at Asia Hotel.


On 20 July 2007, a person by the name of Joe Gombak wrote a letter to Malaysiakini asking whether our mainstream media knows exactly which aspects of Malaysia's political culture could possibly benefit other countries.

Joe Gombak was of course being sarcastic in sneering at one of our mainstream press’ gratuitous article about how Malaysia was a wonderful example of unity and diversity.

Like FA Abdul yesterday (on hearing the 'profound', pompous and philosophical multi-racialism bull from Syed Saddiq of the ketuanan Pribumi Party, Joe Gombak confessed he nearly vomited after reading that nonsense, and indicated his displeasure, distress and disgust at the rotten state of affair, to wit, our failed state.

What attracted me to his letter was his statement:

Our dominant ethnic political party organizes mob violence at venues (such as the Apcet II meeting) whenever the occasion suits itself, and unashamedly threatens violence against the ethnic minorities at its AGM (Kerishamudin's ‘keris’-waving and ‘bathe it in blood’ antics courtesy of national television) and not to mention mobilizing its youth wing mobs to threaten to burn down a public building belonging to an ethnic minority - the Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall.

Indeed, but I wonder whether Joe Gombak was aware of who was the acting PM when the UMNO thugs went to Asia Hotel to wreck violence on Apcet II in 1996?

Hint – this was in the mid-1996 and Mahathir was away in Ghana, hence there had to be an acting PM back at home. The then acting PM actually praised the mob violence which disrupted the Apcet II meeting and forced its abandonment.

He declared after UMNO Youth’s successful disruption of Apcet II:

“Our mission was to stop the conference and we did just that.

Have you guess his identity yet, wakakaka. Let me pose that question to Nurul Izzah: Have you yet, Nurul?

Ironically, one victim involved was at that time the president of PRM (Parti Rakyat Malaysia) but who later was to become PKR's Deputy President in 2003, Dr Syed Husin Ali.


Poor bloke was physically abused in the UMNO-perpetrated violence.

OK, let’s revisit what Dr Syed Husin Ali, victim of that incident said during the subsequent court case in which the victims successfully filed a RM83 million suit over their wrongful detention by police on the opening day of Apcet II, which as mentioned, was stormed by the UMNO mob.
Dr Syed Husin said he recognised 3 UMNO blokes who were among the rioters. They were, wakakaka, Saifuddin Nasution, Ruslan Khamis and Mustapha Yaakub. He knew them because Saifuddin Nasution and Ruslan Khamis joined PKR subsequently [though the latter returned to UMNO].






es, 
Yes, Saifuddin Nasution left UMNO in 1999 together with his idol, wakakaka, joined PKR when it was KeADILan, and is still with PKR (after KeADILan merged with Dr Syed Husin's PRM to form PKR) becoming its sec-gen but has been seconded early this year to the DAP in Penang to serve as strategic adviser the Lim Guan Eng.

But it's said a leopard never changes its spots, wakakaka, and Saifuddin showed his leopard spots in 1996 at UMNO's show of vile hooliganism at the Apcet II forum.

Anyway, this was what the mob did to Dr Syed Husin and Apcet II participants from all around the world, according to Dr Syed Husin’s statement to the court


Journalist Catherine McGrath was arrested in Kuala Lumpur in 1996 while working as South East Asia Correspondent for ABC TV and Radio.

… the 300-strong BN angry mob broke down the doors and invaded the conference hall carrying sticks and chairs in their hands.

Dr Syed further revealed: “One of them who had in his hand a food-container half-filled with water, emptied the contents all over me. He shouted at me saying, ‘Get out! Get out!’. It was mayhem.”

“I was personally assaulted by three persons. They used force and pulled my hands and body. They kept insisting that I should leave the hall.”


I just wonder whether they were the same 3 persons he recognized, wakakaka?

But Dr Syed Husin, by then PKR's Deputy President, actually grinned when he mentioned Saifuddin’s name – a sort of ‘hmmm, what a very very small world!’ or perhaps 'goodness gracious me, I'm now in the same party with a thug at Apcet II' wakakaka.


Dr Syed Husin would no doubt have been terrified and also fuming when Saifuddin and gang wrecked Apcet II in 1999 but subsequently could afford to grin when he found that both the victim (himself) and the aggressor (Saifuddin Nasution) were both PKR members a la 'member kita'.

Now, didn't and doesn't that make 'hooliganism' a strange and very relative description?

You know Saifuddin Nasution as the PKR party sec-gen who dismissed angry complaints about the earlier PKR party polling process involving Zaid Ibrahim, Chegubard, etc, don't you?

While party president Wan Azizah acted dunno and kept her mouth sealed, party sec-gen Saifuddin Nasution dismissed all and any complaints. What a team, wakakaka.

Saifuddin, one of those wreckers turned reformed (pun intended) apologist, who was then No 3 in the UMNO Youth leadership hierarchy but now the PKR sec-gen, admitted it was indeed an UMNO orchestrated attack on the conference. 

As PKR's sec-gen, he would, wouldn't he, wakakaka. 

But naturally, of course as PKR's sec-gen, he placed the blame on (1) Megat Junid, at that time deputy Home minister, (2) Zahid Hamidi, UMNO Youth Chief, and of course (3) the bete noire of PKR at that time, Mahathir, wakakaka.


But when Mahathir arrived home from Ghana, Megat Junid and Saifuddin met him, where Saifuddin related Megat told Mahathir that "It was all orchestrated."

Now, wasn’t it just strange that, according to Saifuddin (just a reminder, then the sec-gen of PKR), Mahathir who gave the approval for the disruption of Aptet was informed by Megat Junid that “It was all orchestrated.”

Tell me, would it have been logical that Mahathir who, according to Saifuddin, allegedly gave his approval in the first place had to be so informed by Megat Junid that “It was all orchestrated.”?

Wouldn’t it be more logical that Megat Junid have said “Semua kowtim Datuk” instead of "It was all orchestrated."

And I ask again: Who was in charge at home when Mahathir was away in Ghana? Was it possible for this person not to be aware of affairs that his sidekick Zahid Hamidi (the man he used in a failed attempt to drive Mahathir into expeditious retirement) and Saifuddin were up to?

Isn't it amazing, that according to Saifuddin Nasution, those that PKR coincidentally then-hated, namely, Mahathir and Zahid Hamidi (both in Ghana), and Hishamuddin (in Singapore) were asked for directions and approval to disrupt Apcet II, while someone at home, yes, in Malaysia as the acting PM, was not even mentioned at all and thus portrayed as clean as a whistle? The bullshit was just too f* rich, wakakaka.

Recall this, who boasted of the UMNO disruption of Aptet II:

“Our mission was to stop the conference and we did just that.”

Sure as hell wasn't Mahathir, Hishamuddin, Zahid Hamidi or Megat Junid (mind you, not that they're angels, au contraire).

Strange [or should it be] that Saifuddin Nasution didn’t even once mention his idol's name once, despite that person's very vocal boast: “Our mission was to stop the conference and we did just that” wakakaka.


As I mentioned just now: Didn't and doesn't that make 'hooliganism' a strange and very relative description?

But they are all wearing the same leopard spots, regardless of which party they now belong to.

I wonder what those who have been condemning the Nothing2Hide forum or the UMNO-Perkasa thugs in Penang's Himpun Hijau rally would say of the by-far-worse 'orchestrated' mob violence at Apcet II?

Please bear in mind the thuggery displayed at Apcet II involved international participants, thus shamefully demonstrating to the world the vile Malaysian thuggery, hooliganism and samseng-ism was a disgraceful part of our politics. 10 years later, it's still the same. 

I know what I would say, the DNA of hooliganism, thuggery and samseng-ism seems to lie with the same group of people whose parties may now be called by different names but who all come from the same source.

As the saying goes, the buah langsat does not fall far from the bangsat langsat tree.

Pribumi's Actor Extraordinaire


Malaysiakini has published an article by FA Abdul on Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman, the pandai cakap banyak bloke from Mahathir's Pribumi Party, though I spent a considerable amount of time tracking it down, wakakaka.

I thought it had been withdrawn which would have broken my heart as I have considerable trust in Malaysiakini. Anyway, that article is titled
And the award for best actor goes to….


Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman is another Tan Keng Liang (Gerakan Party) who would talk on anything, about everything, and to our utter frustration, incessantly, wakakaka.

In his non-stop nerve-wrecking nattering Syed has not confined his pompous pathetic philosophy to Pribumi affairs but also to areas associated closely with Pribumi or Mahathir, for example, to how Azmin Ali is a "fantastic" MB of Selangor and how a Chinese security worker, also a DAP member, David 'someone', protected Malays during the recent fracas at the Nothing2Hide forum.

That FA Abdul article, just published yesterday, described Syed Saddiq for his glib gab as an award-deserving "actor" in perhaps the wishful mode of Shah Rukh Khan).


Syed Saddiq in praising a Chinese security worker protecting Malays as if he (Syed) is a multiracialist when in reality he belongs to a party, namely, Pribumi an ultra bumiputera-only ketuanan party, which no Chinese can ever join, has caused Fatima (FA Abdul) to have, in her own words, .... an upset stomach yesterday and (who) almost vomited out of pure disgust.

FA Abdul wrote that Pribumi Youth chief Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman ... went all teary and super emotional upon telling reporters how a Chinese DAP worker protected a group of Malays from getting hurt by using his own body as a shield.

“You say there is racism… but…” said Syed Saddiq, very much in his character, almost as good as Shah Rukh Khan.


and the award goes to Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman

thunderous applause from Azmin
 

First of all, let me just say how sickening it is for a representative of a party that was formed along the lines of Umno, featuring ex-members of Umno, to have the nerve to even talk about racism when non-bumiputera members of the party are denied the rights to vote and contest for party positions.

I get it. The representatives of Bersatu 
(Pribumi) and its supporters are under the opinion that the party has to remain pro-Malay in order to gain the support of the Malays who are, sad to say, very communal.

But if right is right and wrong is wrong, why do we take the wrong path to achieve what is right?

Racism is wrong.

The truth is, in my honest opinion, the 14th general election (GE14) should not be entirely about flushing Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak out. It should instead be about carving the path towards a better Malaysia.

Seriously, do we think everything would be rosy once Najib is gone? How about racism, religious bigotry and extremism, which have crept so deep into our society?

There are greater things happening in the streets of Malaysia than corruption, power abuse and the economic downfall.


Thanks Fatimah dahleeeng, my exact thoughts, though for making such a stand (thus against supporting a dictator like Mahathir which would be like moronically leaping from the fire back into the sizzling hot frying pan) I have been accused of being an Ah Jib Gor lover, supporter and dedak-fed cybertrooper, wakakaka.

And now perhaps a word or two from history:

‘Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not’ - Jeremiah 5:21 (circa 630 - 590 BCE)

There are none are so blind as those who will not see - John Heywood (1546).

‘There are none so blind as those who will not see. The most deluded people are those who choose to ignore what they already know’ - Jonathan Swift (1738)


But that unfortunately has been the idiotic thinking of political enthusiasts in Malaysia, wakakaka, despite warnings from many respectable political observers about the abysmal folly of supporting a draconian despicable dictator like Mahathir with his half century of pompous but pathetic profligate meddling with our hallowed institutions (Judiciary, Senate, Civil Service, PM-ship) and national resources (Maminco, FOREX, BMF, Perwaja, MAS, Proton, etc) and terrible cases like Memali, Project Blue IC, etc.

Anyway, back to our Malaysian version of Shah Rukh Khan - in other words, Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman is not only a cakap banyak sort of bloke but also, from FA's observation and logic, a hypocrite with amazing acting ability.

It's not so much he has been hypocritical about the Chinese DAP security person but hasn't he been selling his snake-oil to the Malaysian voters in a pathetically shallow and insubstantial way?

Continuing with FA Abdul's article:

Of course it is easier to blame Najib for all the flaws we encounter daily in our personal life as well as those we read of others on the media. But the truth remains that we are structurally fragile as a nation, with or without Najib.

Appearing to fight racism only to support it in disguise is clearly not how we strengthen our nation, nor is it the right way to build a better Malaysia.

Think about it, if only the incident during the forum involved a Malay security worker instead of a Chinese, would it still be newsworthy? Would Syed Saddiq praise the Malay man, like he did the Chinese?

Turning a man into a hero simply because he is of a different race – now that’s racism, really.

In the words of my dear friend, Farouk A Peru, perhaps instead of selling us the story of a noble Chinese protecting the Malays, Syed Saddiq should work towards granting non-Malays full membership in Bersatu 
(Pribumi), if he truly believes in racism-free Malaysia.

If Syed Saddiq is incapable of doing that, then he is just another actor, like the ones we’ve seen so often in Najib’s cabinet.
Amin.




you think he likes Malays?
