VK Chin, the obese cross-dressing Santa Claus (metaphorical)
Posted by jingoisticbuthornydesperado on July 27, 2008
VK Chin is a sycophantic pro-BN apologist, nothing new. He is pro-BN-dictatorship in the facade of Malaysian ‘democracy’, like an obese Santa Claus trying to put on skin-tight slim-wear Miss Malaysia swimsuit. He wants people to vote so long as people vote to retain BN with 2/3 majority and declare that anything less than is equivalent to suicide. Isn’t that like pointing pistol point-blank at our temples and demand a favour out of us? He finds people who are vocal and daring to be obnoxious to ‘democracy’.
Let me quote from VK Chin
“Since there was no trouble after polling on March 8, people were under the impression that they could afford to be more vocal and daring in their actions.
But many did not realise that potential trouble was averted due entirely to the police, who were able to keep all those capable of causing mischief in check.”
I sometimes find it quite difficult to understand VK Chin’s pessimism, always thinking about the most horrible thing Malaysians might do to destabilise the nation. Want to talk rhetoric, let’s talk rhetoric. Does he understand the meaning of the term ‘diffusion of responsibility’? Yes, that is the term we can describe BN. It once hold too much power by controlling 2/3 majority. Having so many BN governing politicians? Has he ever wondered about how the country is going to maintain good governance with the responsibility of good governance spreaded over too many BN politicians to be effective? Mind you, the current prime minister’s cabinet is still too large and flowery by today’s global standards, so there goes the efficiency of governance. Rhetoric is not a privilege of BN sycophant.
There are two sides to a coin for a demonstration. People get to air their grievances and remind the government who they should actually be working for. Demonstration can turn into unruly mob, hence for any democratic nation, police presence is always there. But to say that demonstrations should be banned because of the slightest risk of turning into an unruly mob is preposterous. Is he telling me police isn’t going to abuse their power? If police does indeed abuse their power, then shouldn’t the whole police force to be made defunct? If the National Service is killing at least one of its student each year, shouldn’t the National Service be abolished as well? Of course, he can tell us to look at the bigger picture, National Service serves to unite the nation, the risk is acceptable. I will say, isn’t the risk acceptable for demonstrations as well if it serves to strengthen the nation in the long run governed by a more socially empathetic government? Relationship between police presence and demonstrators is a symbiotic one for the country.
To sum up, this objectionable buffoon is the antithesis of emancipation people are striving to achieve.
