Najib.is in hot kangkung soup with Mahathir’s cold cup of destructivi Malayali ‘tea’
Mukhriz Mahathir better hog the headlines while your evil old man is still alive. Your back stabbing Umno colleagues will fill your back with knives the day your old man turns stiff and cold.
Instead of hitting out at the organisers of the controversial kangkung flash mob, Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz Mahathir praised the opposition for its creativity with regard to the peddling of false perceptions.
Instead of hitting out at the organisers of the controversial kangkung flash mob, Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz Mahathir praised the opposition for its creativity with regard to the peddling of false perceptions. the scenes playing out from Kedah are rather unbelievable. Yes, the ways of Najib have come as a major disappointment to those who believed in their cause.have lost respect as quickly as they gained it and they are well and truly on a self-destruction mode. Every time they do something, they are setting their own tails on fire and reaffirming a jaded voter’s viewpoint that a precious vote has indeed been wasted. And wonder of wonders, the turn around has happened all so quickly. said Kedah Menteri Besar.
Call it inexperience, immaturity, over enthusiasm, fizzled logic, whatever, but this is certainly not the way those in governance ought to be behaving. Mukhriz Mahathir in one clean strike have shown Najib is incapable of governance, he is incapable of handling responsibility, and they are incapable of working even as a team for that matter. If their antics in Putra Jaya are really to catapult themselves into scene, then it is most shameful.Najibl has not proven in any way he is a reformer or a revolutionist, instead he has amply proven that he is an inciter and a propagandist and much to everyone’s utter dismay.
Mukhriz praises Pakatan’s kangkung story
Over the ‘Allah’ issue, and the raid of the Bible Society of Malaysia, Najib’s silence has been deafening, turning his 10-point solution into nothing but an empty promise made just to appease the Sarawakians during the last state election.
The Christian community at large, in particular, those from East Malaysia, are increasingly becoming discontented with Putrajaya’s lack of political will.
Even former MCA president Ong Tee Keat has warned that Malaysia will be left in tatters, if Najib ignores the burning issues that continue to polarise the nation.
Rumours are widespread that Najib is in in a holiday mood with his wife Rosmah Mansor. He was quick to defend Rosmah, but not a word was said about the recent Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) raid that has cost him a lot of goodwill amongst Christians from both sides of the political divide.
Some call it ‘auto-pilot’ but one reader put it cynically: “Auto-pilot? The plane’s been hijacked and is now in a nosedive.”
Other speculate that Najib came into office with a baggage that now, politically, he has to bend to the pressure from the Umno warlords who know his secrets – the Scorpene deal and the murder of Altantunya Shaariibu allegedly among them!
It is hard for him to exercise his political will to deal with corruption, because they, too, would retaliate by exposing his own shortcomings.
Whatever it is, Najib is clearly out of touch with the rakyat. The fiasco over the kangkung (spinach) comments had drawn flak from the public, which he continues to defend by saying that kangkung is his favourite vegetable. This is not the first time that Najib has made such a blunder.
His lack of political savviness is also obvious during the Oppa Gangnam style concert in Penang, when he continued asking the same question although the audience had already shouted out in the negative that they would not vote for Barisan Nasional (BN) during the last general election.
His own brother, Nazir Razak, also took a potshot against Najib for his lack of sensitivity towards the people’s suffering which is akin to Louis XVI, whose “indecisiveness and conservatism led some elements of the people of France eventually to view him as a symbol of the perceived tyranny of the ancien régime, and his popularity deteriorated progressively.” (Wikipedia)
Marie Antoinette, the queen, is well-known for her statement, “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche” (literally translated as ‘Let them eat cake’) when she learnt that the peasants had no bread. France, as a nation, was heavily in debt.
History repeating itself?
It is a widespread belief that Abdul Razak Hussein, Najib’s own belated father, was in the scheme together with Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Harun Idris, the then-Selangor state menteri besar, to remove Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj as prime minister of Malaysia. Will this now happen to Razak’s own son? It is something to be watched.
With the threats made by Umno members and NGOs linked to the political party to hype up another May 13, it is obvious that some elements are trying to create tension between the races.
If this is allowed to continue, it may lead to some untoward incidents where innocent lives may be sacrificed.
Forty years down the road, another May 13 will no longer be as simple as in 1969 where it was portrayed as a racial riot. With the advent of the Internet, the Information Age has endowed on the people the enlightenment of what is happening in the country.
Since Anwar Ibrahim was sacked by Dr Mahathir, there has already been a split among the Malays. One fitnah after another by Umno warlords have turned the people into supporting the opposition leader as clearly seen from the GE13 results. The Malays were the first wave of opposition against Umno, followed by the Indian community (in what was known as the Hindraf movement) and of late, the Chinese community (in what Najib calls the Chinese tsunami).
The ‘Allah’ controversy will see a fourth wave from Sabah and Sarawak, where the largely Christian community is now suddenly awakened from their slumber and beginning to see the ugliness of Umno politics and threatening another May 13 incident.
Had such threats been uttered by a Pakatan leader, the police would have immediately taken stern action, but the 300-odd demonstrators in Penang recently chanting vulgarities and stirring up the emotions of the Malays were not being stopped.
Yet, a silent Najib is lame and unable to act against the Umno warlords who continue to damage the reputation of the ruling party, and the entire BN coalition. This has already raised ire amongst MCA members, who said that the prime minister should stop his own supporters from turning the kangkung joke into another racial issue.
For the moment, Umno warlords may use Najib for their own political expediency, but it will be a matter of time that they, too, will turn around against him and Rosmah.
To win the people back, it will take years of pursuing the middle path and Umno warlords, with a mindset to plunder the nation’s wealth, will not be interested to pursue.
With only very few leaders like Saifuddin Abdullah, Umno warlords generally lack the ability to use the power of reasoning to speak to the people.
Comments were made, for example, accusing the Chinese middlemen as the source of price hikes will not only further alienate the community from BN, but raise ire among the larger Malay populace (as seen in the Turun protests) who know that price hikes are the result of the government’s sudden removal of subsidies and the cronies who contribute to the country’s inflation.
To divert people’s attention from the real issues, it is not surprising therefore, that in the next few years, Umno will continue to play its gutter politics as seen in the lead up to GE13. In many ways, this will erode the people’s respect for Umno as a ruling party from both within BN, and otherwise.
Unless Najib is able to put the house in order, it will be difficult for him to remain in Putrajaya. Either way, there is already a growing discontent with people stating openly that they have lost confidence in his ability to lead the country and no amount of gutter politics, violence or intimidation would pacify the people.The spirit of this poem is dedicated to Datuk Johari Abdul Ghani for hisr sacrifice on the great achievement as through great effort, skill, perseverance, and couraget the Member of Parliament forP119Titiwangsa, Datuk Johari Abdul Ghani “Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high Where knowledge is free Where the world has not been … Read more
