LOLROTF- laughing out loud and rolling on the floor. That’s how I felt like doing when some people think they can advise Najib. To do what? To pronounce the Islamic terms correctly? To turn off the lights in the house so that it the bill will not be RM6000 a day. To save water bill? To stop using kangkung as reference?
Sometime ago, a prominent former finance minister told me, Najib is beyond advise. Why should he listen to his underlings? He pays them. His only credit is the fact that he is the son of a former much-loved PM. That was what he resorted to- his last line of defence when UMNO delegates attacked his hare-brained 1Malaysia and New Economic Model. UMNO Malays do not want his 1Malaysia and the concept has remained what it means- a slogan and a song. UMNO Malays rejected his NEM because they wanted all the special privileges that come along with being UMNO Malay- licenses, Approved Permits, negotiated contracts, and so on and so forth. UMNO is a party by, of and for the top 20%. It’ s no longer a political party even- but a club for rent seekers at every level.
Why should Najib, leader of the finance and political aristocracy listen to those beneath him. The only language Najib understand is the language of kicking him out of Putrajaya. So, if Anwar Ibrahim wastes our time trying to secure a deal with Najib, Anwar Ibrahim is truly, as Zaib Ibrahim says- the quintessential UMNO man. Closet UMNO man.
Malays must progressively dissociate themselves from UMNO. Indeed as fast as they can. It’s now peopled by every armchair warrior, fascists, reich-wing nationalist, bloodthirsty conservative, war-crazed Malay supremacist, God, King and country bumpkin, mullah moralist, just about any person who supports the Finance and Political aristocracy. And then of course the lumpenproletariat.
Knowing that UMNO is actually the voice that speaks for the interest of the top 20%, the rentier class and supported by and large by the clueless lumpenproletrat, we are not surprised that UMNO Penang has mustered an abusive and violent demonstration. The leaders behind the spontaneous outpouring of defence of Kim Il Najib are some personalities who don’t look Malay, sounded untypically Malay, are in fact not Malay but still accepted as UMNO members.
Curiously, the Malay hoi poloi don’t seem to mind the true identity of these people for as long as they can hear something pleasing to the ears and reassuring. What else can be more reassuring and pleasing to the ears than a reaffirmation of the supreme rights of Malays over and above the others? The reich-wing nationalists have taken over.
The otherised group- Chinese, Indians and natives of Sarawak and Sabah do not have as much rights as Malays despite having article 153 containing provisions for protection of their interests too. Don’t tell Ibrahim Ali I am telling you this- I am already condemned as betrayer to my race. What else can be pleasing and enthralling than a confirmation of the infallibility of the great Kim Il Najib? So you Chinese, Indians and East Malaysian natives, if you don’t accept and acknowledge your othersised nature, we will unleash May 13 upon you.
The object of their abuse and derision is the PKR ADUn, Lee Khai Loon. He had dared push a bunch of kangkung into an effigy representing Kim Il Najib. For the UMNO supporters, most notably the select and anointed few, the manufactured and artificially grafted Malays and their lumpenproletariat supporters, this action is almost sacrilegious and therefore blasphemous. Doesn’t Najib represent what is morally upright and pure? Doesn’t Najib represent the Malays and making fun of his effigy, is tantamount to challenging the supremacy of the Malays? Najib is morally superior to the boy-lover who can’t even enter kinky-sexed Japan.
But have the police acted on the report made by several PR lawmakers on the seditious presentations of the UMNO supported roughnecks? Isn’t involving a threat of another 13 May seditious and may fall under the purview of the PCA?
If the mamak gang politicians in Penang want to do a MGR inspired theatrics, please do so, but please don’t drag the Malays into this political quicksand theatrics. It is a sad day if Malays become willing participants albeit indirectly, in this maniacal outpouring of adulation because being UMNO is not the same as being a Malay. UMNO and Kim Il Najib do not represent the 18 million Malays in this country. The majority of us don’t want accreditation from a Kangkung standard PM and his equally kangkung minded party.
The government of, by and for the 20% has been silent as warmongers bring us closer to social catastrophe. Perhaps people now understand that Kim Il Najib is a bloody hypocrite. He is running with the dog while hunting the hare. He speaks about the concept of 1Malaysia; well speaking as a concept anyway while keeping deaf and mute on racist tendencies that could lead to open confrontation. He does this, because the actions of the reich-wingers, the mullah purists , God, King and Country bumpkins and others on the same bandwagon, serve a purpose- to intimidate and pummel the people into submission. Let’s face it; I know Najib is the biggest hypocrite.
On his handling of delicate social matters, religious bigotry and economic management of this country, what’s happening to this country presently confirms what I have been saying about him; if Najib can become PM, anyone can.
Where does it say that UMNO is synonymous with the Malays? There is an increasing number of Malays who don’t want the association with UMNO. The Malay race is much bigger than UMNO. UMNO is just one of the political choices available to the Malays. It is no longer the preferred choice except for the reich-wingers and armchair warriors and the people in Perkasa.
The false argument that Malays have returned to UMMNO is just that- patently false. Everyone now knows that Najib is a liar. He never keeps his promises. Why should we believe his explanations?
In GE13 which I have often mentioned, the UMNO candidates who must all be Malays only got 3.25million votes. The 3.25 million voters were not all Malays- because some Uncle Tom Chinese and Indians did vote for the UMNO bradah. Assuming that 90% of those voters were actually Malays, then all UMNO candidates got were 2.93 million Malay voters. 2.93 million of the 5.24 million votes BN got is 56%.
We now have a strong assumption, that 56% of all voters in GE13 were Malays. In GE13, the total number of voters was 11.23 million. 56% of the 11.23 million voters were Malays which is 6.29 million. In GE13 Malay voters numbered 6.29 million voters. How many Malay voters did BN get? It got 2.93 million. Subtract that from 6.29 million, we have the number of Malay voters who did not vote BN. how many were they? 3.36 million. More Malays did not vote for BN and UMNO in GE13. If UMNO means that they got more Malays than they did in GE12, then, that argument is maybe acceptable. But it is hardly proof that UMNO got more Malay votes than PR.
But Teflon skinned UMNO has no shame in claiming that it has captured more Malay voters. It’s good for their politics to claim UMNO is the preferred choice of Malays. Would a right thinking Malay want to support fork-tongued Najib?
Now here is the fact that UMNO despises. If BN secured 2.93 million Malay voters, what happened to its 3.4 million UMNO members? The number of Malay voters who voted for BN in 2013 is smaller than UMNO’s membership. This proves that even UMNO members deserted UMNO in GE13.
UMNO ≠ Malays.
