‘Kaum pendatang’, hypocritical AAB, the Malay grassroots, Namawee

That was what the Star has reported. Apparently calling the Chinese an immigrant race by this buffoon Ahmad has no malice, according to AAB. It was just in the heat of by-election that Ahmad was allowed to mouth-off and the ‘punishment’ he is going to receive is just a mere courtesy talk by AAB to tell him not to do it again. AAB THINKS Ahmad doesn’t mean it. I call this hypocritical…… Oh really so what does he really mean then?
When the Bar Council wanted to hold a forum for constructive RATIONAL dialogue, AAB thinks the WORST of the Bar Council, when the buffoon Ahmad IRRATIONALLY racially mouthed-off, AAB thinks the BEST of this buffoon. What is the logic in this? And Ahmad dared to mouth-off in front of the DPM without fearing repercussions. What does that say about the state of racism of the ruling government?
I think this remark is uncalled for, to say that PAS should lead PR rather than PKR because the PAS has more Malay grassroots supporters. Ironically, I am of the opinion that this unwise remark isn’t racist. He was more inclined towards a ‘better’ demographic or ‘class’ approach to dethrone UMNO. Approaching an issue demographically in an objective manner isn’t in my opinion racist. Educated, middle-class Malays tend to support PKR, however there are many more Malays who do not share the same fortune as their wealthier brothers. These people tend to support PAS, otherwise it would be UMNO. What he forgot though is that PAS also benefitted from cross-racial votes owing a lot to PKR. He should recognise the significant role PKR plays. He should understand if PAS is to lead PR, PAS is going to lose a lot of cross-racial votes, while in the process of possibly gaining more Malay grassroots voters. The question is, will PR lose more than they gain in the process? It is also entirely possible that PR might actually lose Malay votes as well since the Malay electorate would see that as a sign of weakness of PKR, the sign of weakness in the glue that holds PR together resulting in the lack of faith in PR in the process. The glue to PR is afterall build around the image of PKR leader, DSAI. Why risk changing a winning formula? Ibrahim’s approach is less of a racial malice and more of a class divide or problem. It is just unfortunate that the class divide happen to be the Malays themselves. That could have been easily thought of as racist approach by anyone.
Wee Meng Chee (AKA Namawee) is back in Malaysia. I personally think this guy is more of an oddball and a clueless boy who likes to see himself as a hero, stating the moronic but obvious while lacking in critical thinking. He seems to be on a path of redemption…… Whether or not it is out of political pressure cum cowardice to become completely flattering in his statements or out of remorse is up for questioning. Personally, I think it is the former. A remorseful person is one who will appreciate what is good may not be perfect and the need strive for objective and constructive critcism for the greater good.
I conclude today’s post by apologising for my scatty thoughts and comments. Have a nice day everyone, and Happy Merdeka!
