Open letter to Tun Mahathir by The Flaccid Mind

Posted by barbie on July 21, 2009

Updated: The Flaccid Mind just posted an English version of his letter to Tun Mahathir – Open letter to Tun Mahathir. Go and have a read.

Bongkersz from The Flaccid Mind wrote an excellent rebuttal letter to Tun Dr. Mahathir’s ‘Kaki Dalam Kasut’. Let me share his well written letter with The Dandelions readers. I hope you guys understand Bahasa Melayu.

Surat terbuka kepada Tun Mahathir

Kehadapan Tun Mahathir,

Saya merujuk kepada artikel Tun bertajuk “Kaki Dalam Kasut” yang ditulis pada 20 Julai 2009 di laman web Tun. Izinkan saya berkongsi pendapat saya berkenaan apa yang ditulis oleh Tun.

2. Saya percaya penyoal berpendapat orang bukan Melayu berasa amat tertekan dan kecewa dengan “ketidakadilan” terhadap mereka di Malaysia (oleh Kerajaan yang dikuasai oleh orang Melayu).

Orang bukan Melayu mempunyai alasan yang kukuh untuk berasa amat tertekan dan kecewa dengan ketidakadilan terhadap mereka di Malaysia. Malah bumiputera bukan Melayu khususnya orang Asli dan bumiputera Sabah dan Sarawak juga berkongsi perasaan yang sama kerana mereka turut tidak diberikan layanan yang sama seperti orang Melayu sedangkan mereka merupakan penduduk asal negara ini. Berapa banyakkah individu bumiputera bukan Melayu yang diterima masuk dalam sektor kerajaan dan syarikat-syarikat milik kerajaan seperti Petronas?

3. Saya tidak tahu samada penyoal ini pernah bertanya kepada tokoh bukan Melayu soalan yang sama iaitu perasaan orang Melayu akan keadaan di negara nenek moyang mereka yang mereka sudah jadi kaum yang secara relatif termiskin dan masih ketinggalan.

Tun, kata kunci di sini ialah ‘yang termiskin dan ketinggalan’ dan itu tidak mengira kaum Melayu atau bukan Melayu. Sekiranya bantuan diberikan kepada mereka yang berhak tanpa mengira kaum, warna kulit dan agama dan didapati majoriti yang miskin adalah orang Melayu, ianya akan diterima baik.

Tiada sesiapa akan mempersoalkan dasar sedemikian. Tetapi adalah salah untuk membuat dan memperalatkan sesuatu dasar yang memberikan keutamaan kepada sesuatu kaum tanpa mengira taraf hidup dan keperluan. Malah jika sesuatu dasar itu dilaksanakan dengan mengambil kira keperluan dan merit, majoriti orang Melayu secara automatis yang akan mendapat manfaatnya.

Sudah lebih 30 tahun DEB dilaksanakan dan masih yang banyak orang Melayu yang miskin dan ketinggalan. Bukankah ini memberi petunjuk bahawa DEB telah gagal dalam perlaksanaannya dan sesuatu yang drastik perlu dilakukan? Jurang antara yang miskin dan kaya semakin bertambah, di mana kekayaan hanya tertumpu kepada sekumpulan individu Cina, India dan Melayu?

Dan dengan menggunakan hujah individu-individu paling kaya di Malaysia adalah terdiri daripada mereka yang bukan Melayu, Tun beranggapan adalah patut untuk meneruskan DEB dengan memberikan keutamaan kepada orang Melayu dan menghukum orang bukan Melayu yang miskin dan ketinggalan? Bukankan intipati asal DEB adalah untuk membantu semua yang miskin dan memerlukan pertolongan ekonomi tanpa mengira kaum? Sejak bila DEB itu khusus untuk orang Melayu sahaja?

Oh ya, bukankah mengikut kajian antropologi dan sejarah, kebanyakan orang Melayu di Malaysia dan nenek moyang mereka sebenarnya berasal dari dari Indonesia, Thailand dan India? Malah China? Jadi negara nenek moyang mereka sepatutnya bukan Malaysia, sama seperti saya? Contohnya, Tun sendiri, Khir Toyo dan Syed Hamid Albar?

4. Jika beliau bertanya dan tokoh tersebut menjawab secara ikhlas, beliau akan dapati bahawa orang Melayu amat kecewa dengan kemiskinan relatif mereka sehingga terpaksa meminta-minta sepanjang masa dan juga ketinggalan dalam pelbagai bidang.

Apakah dengan adanya DEB sepanjang 3o lebih tahun ini, orang Melayu sudah maju dalam erti kata sebenarnya dan tidak ketinggalan dalam pelbagai bidang? Pernahkan direnungkan bahawa bilangan orang Melayu yang maju dan tidak ketinggalan sudah bertambah adalah disebabkan pengurangan aras pengukur atau ’standard’ serta pemberian kuota oleh kerajaan bagi membolehkan mereka diterima masuk menyertai bidang-bidang tertentu? Apakah ini boleh dianggap sesuatu pencapaian yang membanggakan? Bukankah ini menipu diri sendiri?

5. Mereka cuba yakin mereka adalah tuan di negara mereka tetapi mereka tahu sebenarnya mereka bukan tuan. Orang bukan Melayu yang menjadi tuan yang sebenar.

Apakah amat penting untuk orang Melayu dan bukan Melayu yang semuanya rakyat Malaysia berebut-rebut menjadi tuan yang sebenar? Mengapa PEMIMPIN-PEMMPIN POLITIK Melayu seperti Tun begitu taksub dengan misi untuk menjadi ‘tuan’? Tun hampir betul dengan mengatakan (SEGELINTIR) orang bukan Melayu  yang menjadi tuan yang sebenar walaupun sudah 30 tahun DEB diperalatkan untuk memberi keutamaan kepada orang Melayu. Persoalannya, mengapa ini boleh berlaku?

Orang Melayu memegang tampuk pemerintahan melalui Umno. Keutamaan diberikan kepada orang Melayu dalam perniagaan, ekonomi, pendidikan, peluang pekerjaan dsb. melalu DEB, tetapi yang masih menjadi tuan adalah segelintir orang bukan Melayu? Mengapa ini boleh berlaku? Bukankah itu sesuatu yang pelik dan aneh? Sedangkan yang berkuasa adalah orang Melayu dan dasar-dasar melibatkan sektor-sektor penting memberikan keutamaan kepada orang Melayu?

Dan Tun, sila perbetulkan kenyataan ‘orang bukan Melayu yang menjadi tuan yang sebenar’ dengan menambah ’segelintir’. Saya orang bukan Melayu dan saya langsung tidak merasakan diri saya adalah tuan.

6. Kerana mereka rela berkongsi negara mereka dengan kaum lain, kaum yang berasal dari tamadun yang lebih tua (4,000 tahun) dan lebih berjaya, hari ini yang sedikit yang ada pada mereka pun hendak dipisah dari mereka.

Tun, tolong jelaskan ‘yang sedikit yang ada pada mereka pun hendak dipisah dari mereka’. Kenyataan ini amat mengelirukan dan tidak bertanggungjawab. Keutamaan-keutamaan yang diperuntukkan kepada orang Melayu dan bumiputera Sabah dan Sarawak sudah termaktub dalam perlembagaan dan tiada sesiapa boleh mengubah dan meminda fakta tersebut melainkan dengan kuasa 2/3 parlimen.

Apa yang sering dipertikaikan di sini adalah layanan kurang adil dan perlaksanaan yang terpesong daripada peruntukan-peruntukan yang sebenar serta kecenderungan pemimpin-pemimpin politik yang cuba memutarbelitkan fakta yang ada mengikut tafsiran serong demi kepentingan masing-masing.

7. Fikirkan hanya berkenaan Dasar Ekonomi Baru (DEB). Agihan kekayaan korporat dalam DEB ialah sebanyak 30% bagi bumiputra (walaupun mereka adalah 60% dari penduduk) dan 40% bagi kaum lain serta 30% bagi orang luar. Tetapi setelah diusahakan selama 39 tahun bahagian yang terdapat bagi mereka ialah 20%, sedangkan yang terdapat bagi kaum lain ialah hampir 50%, walaupun mereka hanya 26% dari jumlah penduduk.

Terima kasih kerana berkongsi statistik ini, Tun. Ini dengan jelas membuktikan bahawa, dasar DEB yang dilaksanakan selama ini GAGAL! Sekiranya ia dilaksakanakan tanpa mengira kaum tetapi memandang kepada keperluan, nescaya yang mendapat paling banyak manfaat adalah orang Melayu kerana banyak mereka yang miskin adalah terdiri daripada mereka yang ‘60% dari penduduk’. Mengapa Tun masih degil mempertahankan perlaksanaan DEB yang telah gagal dan cuma menguntungkan segelintir individu?

Sejajar dengan logik Tun (putar belit statistik untuk menyokong hujah dan dijadikan ‘fakta’), saya merupakan penduduk generasi ke-3 di Malaysia, sama seperti Tun. Mengapa saya tidak boleh mendapat layanan yang sama seperti yang diterima oleh Tun? Saya tiada statistik rakyat bukan Melayu yang lahir di Malaysia yang merupakan generasi ke-3, ke-4 berbanding orang ‘Melayu’ yang berhijrah ke Malaysia, tinggal di sini dalam tempoh kurang dari 3 generasi tetapi mendapat layanan setaraf dengan penduduk asal? Contohnya, Khir Toyo? Syed Hamid Albar? Ramai warga asing di Sabah yang mempunyai MyKad dan berstatus ‘Bumiputera Melayu?’.

Rasanya kenyataan bahawa agihan kekayaan korporat sebanyak30% untuk bumiputra adalah kurang tepat, sebaliknya 30% untuk Umnoputra adalah lebih tepat. Jumlah keahlian Umno adalah lebih kurang 2 juta orang dan ini bermakna agihan kekayaan korporat 30% ini dinikmati oleh Umnoputra – mewakili hanya 7% daripada penduduk Malaysia. Setuju?

Lagi, adakah ia salah orang bukan Melayu mereka dibawa ke sini dan beranak pinak di sini? Mengapa ‘kesalahan’ yang dilakukan oleh orang lain (British) perlu ditanggung oleh orang bukan Melayu, khususnya generasi baru seperti saya? Orang bukan Melayu tidak mempunyai pilihan melainkan untuk mencurahkan bakti setia kepada negara Malaysia dan apa yang diminta adalah layanan yang adil dan saksama seperti yang telah diperuntukkan kepada mereka di dalam perlembagaan. Itu sahaja, Tun.

8. Nilai harta milik bumiputra pula berjumlah 15% sedangkan yang baki dimiliki oleh bukan bumiputra disebabkan harta di bandar bernilai lebih tinggi dari di luar bandar.

Adakah menjadi satu kesalahan menjadi kaya dan merupakan bukan bumiputera dalam suasana ekonomi yang berasaskan prinsip kapitalis dan pasaran bebas? Masih relevankan persoalan kaum dalam ekonomi global yang Tun sentiasa canangkan, umpamanya ketika mempertahankan PPSMI? Mengapa setelah sudah 50 tahun kerajaan BN (yang dipegang oleh orang Melayu) dan 30 tahun DEB dilaksanakan, kekayaan negara masih tidak sampai kepada penduduk luar bandar yang rata-ratanya orang Melayu? Adakah ini salah orang bukan Melayu?

9. Tokoh bukan Melayu yang cuba duduki tempat Melayu (in the shoes of the Malays) jika ikhlas, akan rasa kekecewaan Melayu melihat hampir semua perniagaan dan perusahaan serta kekayaan yang diperolehi darinya dimiliki oleh bukan Melayu. Segala estet rumah mewah juga diduduki oleh bukan Melayu. Sikit benar orang Melayu yang tinggal di estat mewah ini. Lebih ramai yang tinggal di kawasan setinggan.

Ya Tun, mengapa? Adakah ini juga salah orang kurang Melayu kerana mampu terus bersaing dan memonopoli kekayaaan walaupun tidak diberikan tongkat ekonomi? Pernahkan Tun membandingkan taraf hidup orang Melayu yang kaya dengan yang miskin, dan orang bukan Melayu yang kaya dengan yang miskin, manakan yang lebih besar jurang perbezaannya?

Mengapa masih ramai orang Melayu yang tinggal di kawasan setinggan tetapi pemimpin-pemimpin politik seperti Tun hidup mewah? Mengapa anak Tun boleh mengadakan parti ‘house warming’ yang mewah tetapi masih ramai orang Melayu yang hidup merempat? Mengapa pemimpin politik seperti Zakaria Deros, Khir Toyo yang mampu membina istana indah berharga jutaan ringgit sedangkan masih ramai orang Melayu yang tinggal di rumah setinggan?

10. Mungkin semua ini disebabkan kesalahan orang Melayu sendiri. Mereka tidak guna peluang yang disediakan bagi mereka. Ada yang salahguna peluang-peluang ini pun. Tetapi jika seorang pengayuh beca diberi sejuta Ringgit, apakah ia akan dapat berniaga dan berjaya dalam bidang ini.

Betul. Mengapa peluang-peluang masih diberikan kepada mereka yang ‘tidak pandai, kurang mahir dan tidak layak?’ Apakah ini akan membantu mereka untuk berjaya? Tun, niat baik untuk membantu orang Melayu memang disambut baik dan berpatutan. Tetapi cara yang digunakan adalah tidak betul, seperti yang dinyatakan oleh Tun sendiri “jika seorang pengayuh beca diberi sejuta Ringgit, apakah ia akan dapat berniaga dan berjaya dalam bidang ini.”

11. Social engineering bukan hanya dilakukan oleh orang Melayu sahaja. Sosialisme dan Komunisme juga merupakan sejenis social engineering untuk mengurang atau menghapus jurang antara yang miskin dengan yang kaya. Mereka juga tidak berjaya sepenuhnya walaupun mereka mengguna kekerasan yang dahsyat. DEB dilaksanakan dengan berhati-hati tanpa kekerasan, tanpa rampasan dan sering dipinda apabila menghadapi tentangan dari bukan Melayu. Apakah persepsi orang Melayu terhadap DEB?

Tun, sekarang ialah tahun 2009, bukan 1959. ‘Social engineering’ perlu berubah mengikut realiti semasa. Jika kita asyik berbalik kepada sejarah kita dan hidup dibayangi masa lampau kita tidak ada maju. Adakah orang India Navajo perlu meminta supaya kerajaan Amerika Syarikat membuat dasar seperti DEB dengan alasan sejarah lampau?

DEB betul dilaksanakan tanpa kekerasan dan rampasan, tetapi ia juga secara sistematik telah menidakkan peluang ramai rakyat Malaysia hanya kerana mereka bukan Melayu! Berapakah bilangan rakyat Malaysia bukan Melayu yang bijak pandai diambil dan dimanfaat oleh negara jiran Singapura dalam membangunkan negara tersebut kerana mereka tidak diterima di negara sendiri? Bukankah ini satu pembaziran? Malaysia ‘membesarkan’, memberikan pelajaran dan tempat tinggal kepada mereka hampir 20 tahun, dan selepas mendapat keputusan cemerlang tidak digunakan dengan baik oleh Malaysia sebaliknya ‘diserahkan’ kepada negara jiran?

Tentangan orang bukan Melayu, malah juga oleh ramai orang Melayu yang tidak mendapat manfaat DEB adalah terhadap perlaksanaannya yang cuma membantu segelintir pihak. Merujuk kepada statistik yang dikongsi oleh Tun, jurang kemiskinan semakin besar dan bukannya bertambah baik setelah DEB dilaksanakan.

12. Lihat sahaja sejarah perjuangan Melayu. Pada Pilihanraya 1955, diwaktu mereka menguasai 82% dari kawasan-kawasan pilihanraya, mereka rela memberi sejumlah yang tidak kecil dari kawasan – kawasan mereka kepada kaum lain dan mengundi calon dari kaum-kaum ini sehingga menang melawan calon Melayu lain (PAS).

Bukankah itu sesuatu yang wajar dilakukan sejajar dengan konsep perkongsian kuasa antara kaum yang dicanangkan oleh Barisan Nasional? Saya memang tidak setuju dengan konsep BN yang memilih calon berdasarkan kaum, bukannya kebolehan dan kelayakan. Ini tidak harus dianggap suatu ‘pengorbanan’, sebalik rakyat Malaysia yang ‘terkorban’ kerana ramai calon-calon dan pemimpin-pemimpin dipilih mewakili mereka hanya kerana mereka adalah dari kaum tertentu, tanpa melihat kepada kemampuan individu tersebut.

13. Kemudian mereka anugerahkan satu juta kerakyatan tanpa syarat biasa kepada kaum lain sehingga peratusan rakyat Melayu jatuh dari 82% kepada 60%. Siapakah yang lain yang pernah lakukan yang sedemikian?

Tun, bolehkah Tanah Melayu (pada ketika itu) mencapai kemerdekaan daripada British tanpa persetujuan bahawa kerakyatan turut diberikan kepada kaum lain? Bukankah kerakyatan itu diberi dengan bersyarat di mana keutamaan-keutamaan akan diberikan kepada orang Melalyu dan bumiputera Sabah dan Sarawak seperti yang termaktub dalam Artikel 153 Perlembagaan Malaysia? Mengapa Tun mengatakan ia diberi tanpa syarat biasa sedangkan Tun tahu itu tidak benar? Mengapa Tun masih mengungkit peristiwa lampau? 50 tahun orang bukan Melayu tinggal di Malaysia, masih tidak cukupkan untuk membayar budi orang Melayu menganugerahkan kerakyatan dengan syarat tersebut? Berapa lama lagi perlu diungkit isu ‘penduduk asal’ dan ‘pendatang’ ini, Tun? Setiap kali BN atau Umno merasakan ia akan hilang tampuk pemerintahan?

14. Pada ketika itu nama rasmi negara ialah Persekutuan Tanah Melayu. Apabila Semenanjung Tanah Melayu dicantum dengan Singapura, Sarawak dan Sabah, perkataan “Tanah Melayu” digugur dan cantuman negeri – negeri ini dinamakan Malaysia. Dengan itu hilanglah identiti Melayu dalam nama negara sendiri. Tidak pula mereka tuntut nama-nama lain digugur.

Tun, adakah ini relevan untuk dipersoalkan? Bukan masih ramai orang Melayu yang gah mengaitkan nama Malaysia sebagai Malay (Melayu) – sia? Mengapa sesuatu yang telah dipersetujui satu masa dahulu oleh semua pemimpin-pemimpin Malaysia, dijadikan isu oleh Tun?

15. Tidak seperti di negara-negara yang membenar hanya bahasa kebangsaan mereka sahaja untuk semua sekolah nasional, orang Melayu bersetuju bahasa Cina dan Tamil dijadikan bahasa pengantar di sekolah bantuan Kerajaan. Bahasa Kebangsaan (Bahasa Melayu) tidak menjadi bahasa kebangsaan seperti di negara-negara jiran dan di Eropah, Australia dan Amerika.

Bukankah ini juga telah dipersetujui oleh semua pemimpin-pemimpin – Melayu, Cina dan India ketika Malaysia mencapai kemerdekaan daripada British lalu dimasukkan dalam perlembagaan negara? Mengapa Tun perlu mempersoalkan isu ini? Bukankah ini adalah syarat supaya Bahasa Melayu diterima sebagai bahasa kebangsaan, satu ‘trade-off?’?

16. Dan banyaklah lagi korban yang dibuat oleh orang Melayu supaya kaum lain mendapat apa sahaja yang dituntut oleh mereka, demi keamanan dan perpaduan rakyat dan negara.

Berapa lama dan banyakkah lagi korban yang juga perlu dibuat oleh orang bukan Melayu supaya orang Melayu puas hati?

17. Apakah gamaknya perasaan tokoh yang meletak diri di tempat orang Melayu, terhadap semua korban ini? Apakah dia masih fikir yang orang Melayu harus korban segala-gala yang dituntut daripada mereka?

Apakah Tun fikir yang orang bukan Melayu tidak berkorban demi membantu saudara-saudara Melayu mereka? Apakah mereka berpuas hati ditidakkan banyak peluang mereka hanya kerana mereka dilahirkan bukan Melayu? Apakah perasaan Tun sekiranya Tun bukan Melayu?

18. Dengan rencana ini saya tetap akan di cap sebagai racist oleh racist bukan Melayu. Tetapi kalau mereka sanggup menerima yang benar, mereka boleh banding korban orang Melayu pemilik asal negara ini dengan korban mereka untuk kepentingan negara ini.

Dengan rencana ini, terbukti Tun masih berada di takuk lama. Tun masih berfikiran bahawa dalam era dunia globalisasi tanpa sempadan yang mencabar ini, isu dan politik perkauman masih sesuai diperkatakan? Mengapa Tun hanya menyentuh kepada pengorbanan orang Melayu? Mengapa Tun tidak menyentuh jasa dan pengorbanan orang bukan Melayu dalam membangun dan memajukan negara ini?

19. Saya berpendapat jika negara ini hendak aman dan maju, agihan kekayaan dan kualiti hidup semua kaum hendaklah adil (fair) walaupun tidak sama (unequal). Janganlah hendaknya mana-mana pihak atau kaum tanggung beban kemiskinan yang keterlaluan, sementara kaum lain hidup mewah. Mengumpan sokongan dengan mengambil hak satu kaum untuk diberi kepada kaum lain bukanlah caranya – lebih-lebih lagi mengambil dari yang kurang berada untuk diberi kepada yang sudah lebih berada.

Saya berpendapat jika negara ini hendak aman dan maju, kenyataan berbaur perkauman dan yang boleh membawa perpecahan harus dielakkan, terutama yang datang daripada pemimpin seperti Tun.

Agihan kekayaan dan kualiti hidup semua kaum hanya akan adil sekiranya ia berlandaskan keperluan, bukannya identiti kaum dan warna kulit. Tun membuat kenyataan yang bercanggah apabila menyatakan ‘mengumpan sokongan dengan mengambil hak satu kaum untuk diberi kepada kaum lain bukanlah caranya’ sedangkan Tun nampaknya cuba membuat hujah-hujah untuk menyokong perbuatan tersebut dari poin 2 hingga 18 dengan alasan ia adalah patut dan wajar kerana ‘orang Melayu lebih banyak berkorban berbanding orang bukan Melayu’.

Apakah tujuan Tun menulis artikel di atas dengan melagakan orang Melayu dan bukan Melayu yang boleh menimbulkan rasa curiga dan kurang puas hati antara kaum? Adakan ini membantu membina perpaduan negara ke arah suasana yang aman damai?

1. Di forum anjuran Gempita dan UMNO bertajuk Kedudukan Raja-Raja Melayu dan Orang Melayu dalam Perlembagaan Malaysia di Zaman Liberalisasi dan Globalisasi, saya ditanya oleh seorang pensyarah Melayu dari UIAM (Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia) apakah saya pernah fikir untuk meletak diri saya di tempat orang bukan Melayu (put yourself in the shoes of a non-Malay) bersabit dengan diskriminasi terhadap mereka di negara ini.

Oh ya, Tun masih belum menjawab soalan pensyarah tersebut, apakah Tun pernah fikir untuk meletak diri Tun di tempat orang bukan Melayu bersabit dengan diskriminasi terhadap mereka di negara ini.

Sekian,

Saya, rakyat Malaysia yang bukan Melayu.

Say no to Chin Peng the ‘former terrorist’, say yes to Communist China!

Posted by barbie on June 9, 2009

I applaud the decision by the Malaysian government to dismiss and not entertain any idea of allowing Chin Peng the ‘former terrorist’ to return to this country.

Government Will Not Allow Chin Peng To Return, Says Najib

PUTRAJAYA, May 27 (Bernama) — The Malaysian government will not allow former Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) leader Chin Peng to reside in the country.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the return of the former terrorist would lead to dissatisfaction among the people, especially those who fought the communists and families who lost their loved ones during the CPM’s revolt from 1948 to 1981 (known as the Emergency).

(Source: Bernama)

The government is absolutely right, many victims suffered during the communist insurgency, Chin Peng and his commandos killed many people in the past and they certainly do not deserve any consideration from us. No, I didn’t say that. Our very wise, informed and cultured Datuk Datuk Seri Utama Dr. Rais bin Yatim said that.

Several quarters and individuals, including Information, Communication and Culture Minister Dr Rais Yatim, have opposed the idea.

“Chin Peng and his commandos killed many people in the past and they certainly do not deserve any consideration from us,” Rais had said.

The communists abused this country and we had been shackled through killings and terrible actions committed by them,” he added.

(Source: 1Malaysia)

We should never allow Chin Peng to come back to Malaysia. Thanks to our sensitive Defence Minister Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi for putting it in context.

Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had said his return would be an insult to the families of nearly 50,000 British colonial and government troops who died during the “Malayan Emergency”. (psst, the 50,000 figure is a crap is you ask me)

But I have some disturbing questions.

1. Isn’t Chin Peng was just a puppet for the Chinese Communist Party? His party, Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) was supported by its China main counterpart throughout their four decades in Malaysia. My question is, why punish the puppet, but not the master? Obviously we should punish China!

Let’s severe our all our diplomatic and bilateral ties with China to show our sensitive considerations to the suffering families that went through killings and terrible actions committed by the communists. Let’s show them Malaysia is serious about its past history, goddammit!

2. If I am not mistaken, China is ruled by Communist Party of China (CPC). So, let me get this right, China is ruled by a bunch of communists and why the hell we are courting them now? What happened to ‘the communist abused this country’ and ‘they certainly do not deserve any consideration from us?

What is our beloved Prime Minister doing frolicking in China then? Is he not worry that his visit would lead to dissatisfaction among the people, especially those who fought the communists and families who lost their loved ones?

I repeat, let’s severe our all our diplomatic and bilateral ties with China to show our sensitive considerations to the suffering families that went through killings and terrible actions committed by the communists. Let’s show them Malaysia is serious about its past history, goddammit

3. If I remember correctly, the British and Japanese  also killed a lot of people during their occupation of Malaya no? The British sure killed and injured a lot of people back then.  Remember the fights by Tok Janggut, Dato’ Bahaman, Mat Kilau, Maharaja Lela? I bet my last cent the British killed more people here during their occupation compared to the emergency period.

How about the war crimes and astrocities the Japanese commited against the people of Malaya during World War II? Wait, did the communists kill less people than them?

Let’s severe all our diplomatic and bilateral ties with Japan and British (now Great Britain) to show our sensitive considerations to the suffering families that went through killings and terrible actions committed by the Japanese. Let’s show them Malaysia is serious about its past history, goddammit!

Well, I do not agree and I don’t really care if Chin Peng was a freedom fighter, but that’s beside the point. Just how much longer we want to live in the shadows of the past? May 13th, Malaya Emergency etc. often quoted by our leaders to ‘remind’ us, about what? You should know better. Selective issues, don’t you think? Why it is only Chin Peng not allowed to come back to Malaysia? How about other CPM leaders?

Conclusion: Only in Malaysia, it would seem like history has to dictate how we we live tomorrow. Rather sad.

ps: I am sure Chin Peng was not a freedom fighter. He’s taking arms for fun, just like how I shoot people for fun at my Counter Strike game. Okay, Let 4 Dead lah, nobody play CS now. Okay, bad joke.

pss: What is this ‘my father’, ‘my father’ and ‘my father’ crap keep repeated by Najib? He has no backbone to stand on his own? To claim his own credit, other that relying on his father’s name?

All We Need Is Music!!!!!!!

Posted by barbie on April 27, 2009

I’m not sure whether it’s in our water or food, but our recent new leaders seem to have a fondness for spouting popular-sounding slogans and catchy phrases…..and they seem to think Malaysians are still quite so gullible to swallow every slogan, hook, line and sinker……..

And it seems their team of so-called PR experts have come up with some hare-brained idea on how to actually and finally make those catchy sounding slogans work and accepted.

Know why Badawi’s Islam Hadhari died such a horrible and pathetic death?

And why Najib’s “1Malaysia” will “potentially” be successful? *ahem ahem*

Well, other than the fact that it seems pretty obvious that Najib’s team is working overtime with many recent popular moves (such as the child conversion and 30% bumi equity) to ensure his concept doesn’t die in the same embarrassing manner as Badawi (regardless of how superficial the efforts seem), it seems that they’ve finally found the “secret ingredient”……….*drum roll*

Contest for 1Malaysia song

KUALA KLAWANG, 27 April 2009: The Information, Communication and Culture Ministry will launch a contest to identify the best composer for the 1Malaysia song.

Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said just like other songs that inculcate patriotism in their composition, especially songs like Budi Bahasa Budaya Kita and those that promote reading, the ministry also wanted the 1Malaysia song lyrics to attract listeners.

“God willing, I hope we can get a good response from composers and we hope to pick the best composition,” he told reporters after attending a dinner hosted by Kelab Rekreasi Warga Tua, Kuala Klawang here last night.

Dr Rais who is also Jelebu Member of Parliament said the song would represent all races.

The 1Malaysia song, to be in composed in Bahasa Malaysia, would be widely aired on all TV and radio stations according to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s wishes.

-Bernama

YOU MEAN ALL THAT WAS MISSING WAS A THEME SONG!!!!????

Badawi must be slapping his forehead really hard :P

Perhaps that is why our Malaysian National Service is so “well received” despite so many unneccesary deaths? Check out the “inspiring” music video that has gotten all our youths excited over National Service once again…….

“1Malaysia” – Malaysia Under 1…….

Posted by barbie on April 17, 2009

Rais Yatim, the expert somersaulter is making the headlines again. We can never get enough stale, puke inducing statements from Umno ministers, even from the so called the ‘educated’ bunch. This bugger has a Phd I tell you, and his doctorate paper was titled – “Freedom under Executive Power in Malaysia: A Study of Executive Supremacy” which he dedicated to “all who have suffered from the tyranny of executive excesses.”

It mind boggling (actually, not really.. lah! just being polite here) that a person with such background and credentials would turn into a poppycock offering ridiculous opinions like “losing Pedre Brance aka Pulau Batu Putih to Singapore is a win-win situation”. Well, we can’t expect much from an intellectual whore, right? Oopss.. by calling Rais an intellectual whore, am I breaking any law here? *chuckles*

(Bernama) – The government is not looking to find fault with bloggers and other internet users but would like them to follow the law to ensure they did not misuse it.

Oh sure man! As long as we write like any of your MSM dogs, everything will be peachy. How about telling them to follow the law as well? Cannot lah double standards, and why singled out ‘bloggers and internet users?’

Minister of Information, Communication and Culture Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said the ministry played an important role in establishing only the right kind of information reached the masses.


Rais Yatim….OOPS!!….I mean “Living Dinosaur”….. :P

“It is not that we are looking for faults all the time. But we would like the right of the people to be guarded by the relevant authorities and the law. “Our aim is to see the 1Malaysia concept succeed.

However, in order to succeed, the facts must not be twisted or misinterpreted by some until it raises racial sentiments.

Twisted or misinterpreted, u say??? How about misquoted? You think people are dumb like you? My foot twisted and misinterpreted. I bet people misintepreted you when you said “Bok House is not a heritage building“, when you actually wanted to say it is??? What?? Come on lah, we are not so smart like you to decipher what are you trying to say, stop confusing stupid people like us.

“If the right information does not reach the people how can there be success?

Hey Mr. Living-Dinosaur-Minister, please elaborate what is the RIGHT information?

What is NOT raising racial sentiments!!???

THIS???

Jangan membuat permintaan yang bukan-bukan – Utusan Malaysia

Pemimpin politik dan badan bukan kerajaan (NGO) Melayu kelmarin menyeru orang Melayu bangkit bersatu bagi menghadapi tuntutan kaum lain yang semakin keterlaluan.

Kita menyeru kepada bukan Melayu supaya jangan lagi membangkitkan dan mencabar ketuanan Melayu yang berkaitan dengan agama Islam sebagai agama rasmi, kedaulatan raja-raja Melayu dan hak istimewa orang Melayu.

Dalam menjaga keharmonian dan kesejahteraan hidup masyarakat majmuk, elok rasanya kita jangan mengungkit dan membuat permintaan yang bukan-bukan.

Terimalah apa yang telah diberikan.

Mengapa masa kini perpaduan kaum dilihat kian longgar.

Jika kita kembali merenung lima tahun lalu, suasana perpaduan kaum kita dicemburui oleh negara-negara lain.

Tetapi kenapa sejak pilihan raya umum 2008, suasana tiba-tiba berubah.

Dengan pelantikan Perdana Menteri baru yang membawa bersamanya gagasan Satu Malaysia, Rakyat Didahulukan, Prestasi Diutamakan, inilah masa untuk semua kaum bersatu membina negara kita mengharungi cabaran yang mendatang.

Alangkah baiknya jika kita ketepikan sengketa dan perbalahan atas nama politik.

Semua kaum harus sedar bahawa tunjang kestabilan negara ini ada di tangan orang Melayu.

Jika orang Melayu sendiri sudah berpecah kepada kumpulan-kumpulan yang memihak kepada parti politik tertentu dan yang tidak peduli apa pun yang berlaku, kestabilan negara boleh goyah.

Kesan perpecahan itu dapat kita lihat dan rasai sekarang.

Di samping itu, kaum bukan Melayu tidak sepatutnya mengambil kesempatan. Akibat perpaduan kaum tidak dijaga dan dipertahankan, ia turut menjejaskan kegiatan ekonomi dan hubungan masyarakat.

Para pemimpin yang mewakili masyarakat berbilang kaum patut menghentikan salah menyalah antara satu sama lain.

Sesungguhnya kedudukan orang Melayu dalam negara ini harus dihormati sebagaimana mereka banyak bertolak ansur dengan bukan Melayu.

Ambillah iktibar kekecohan politik negara Thai. Banyak kerugian ditanggung oleh kerajaan. Malah majoriti rakyatnya tidak menyokong tindakan yang merosakkan imej negara mereka.

Kita hanya ingin memperingatkan bahawa tindak-tanduk perpecahan di kalangan masyarakat majmuk sedang menjadi tontonan negara lain. Mereka sedang mengintai peluang untuk campur tangan jika kita terus lalai dan tidak bersatu.

Oleh itu, semua pemimpin politik dan masyarakat perlu membuat memikirkan masa depan anak cucu kita.

Bersatulah pertahankan perpaduan kaum yang telah kita bina lebih 52 tahun lalu. Jangan diulangi kesilapan lampau hingga kita dijajah lebih 400 tahun lamanya.

Segala kemajuan yang kita kecapi hari ini adalah atas dasar kerjasama dan perkongsian kuasa melalui kerajaan Barisan Nasional. Relakah kita melihat segala impian yang dibina hancur berkecai akibat perpecahan antara kaum.

Dalam konteks ini, tanamkan semula semangat perpaduan dengan didahulukan oleh parti-parti politik.

Translation? I am not going to waste my time translating this shit.

Basically, this hired mouthpiece of UMNO, party of our Prime Minister, who incidentally coined up the “1Malaysia” slogan, is telling us this :-

*Princes of Earth -ledge your souls to UMNO, to ensure peace and prosperity, ehem… of course prosperity is subjected to certain individuals only.

*Others – SHADDUP!! and obey. Wag your tail. Eat shit or whatever. Just RESPECT the princes becuse we’ve tolerated you for far too long.

*Progress and stability of the nation – exclusively for BN, one and only.

And because we’ve yet to hear even a whimper from our glorious PM and his bunch of yo-yos on this piece of crap, it’s a silent endorsement of sorts, on their intepretation of what Najib’s “1Malaysia” is all about, isn’t it?

Now aren’t we just about the luckiest bunch on this side of Mother Earth to have a great “People First” cabinet working for our well-being? Ah, we are so blessed! One thing I must give it up to BN, it is good at sloganeering. Damn freaking good! Not going to post it here, save you from puking. What? When Samyvellu came up with the ‘Rejuvenation’ campaign for MIC with him at the lead, you can tell these slogans are pretty much, rubbish!

So folks, STOP DREAMING AND GO BACK TO WORK!!! THE GAHMEN NEEDS OUR MONEY!!!!!

“Hunger makes a thief of any man” – Pearl S. Buck

Posted by barbie on April 16, 2009

Canteen helper sells her body to support family

A WOMAN who works as a canteen helper in the morning works as a prostitute at night to support her family, China Press reported.

The lady, who wished to be known only as Fatimah, 22, said she had to support her husband, who is an odd-job worker, and their one-year-old son.

“Besides that, I will have to foot my old folks’ medical bills,” she said, adding that she had been prostituting herself for more than three years in Alor Setar.

Fatimah, from Pahang, said she was forced to be a prostitute by her former boyfriend, and charged her customers RM80 each time.

“However, I am getting older and also have given birth. Now, I can only charge RM50,” she said, adding that her customers were aged between 13 and 70.

The daily reported that Fatimah’s dream was to save enough money to start a new life in three years’ time.

A good friend once mentioned about a lady she knew as a child, who was a neighbour. The poor woman was left to fend for herself and her 4 children after her husband got caught stealing milk powder for the kids and was sent to prison for a good number of years.

Being a housewife with no employable skills, she had no choice but to turn to prostitution to put food on the table and roof over their heads.

When her husband was released, instead of understanding and appreciating her sacrifice, he left her. She was also ostracised by everyone in the neighbourhood.

I may not know anyone personally who has been in that situation, but I can truly understand why those mothers did what they had to do. My mother would have done the same, in fact I would have sold off my kidneys for the same reason if I had to.  Please allow me to exaggerate and generalise to a certain extent that, if a comparison must be made,  I would say most parents love their children more than the latter love their parents.

Parental love is not something that can be described in words and it goes without saying that a mother’s love is instinctual, unconditional, and forever.

Young mothers especially, either retrenched or abandoned, are resorting to committing crime for their children’s sake.  How many of you realise that there’s been quite an increase of reports about mothers being sent to prison for stealing for their young?

What on earth is happening to this society? And what will become of the next generation, raised in an environment where only desperation, poverty and lawlessness prevails?

“The poverty of our century is unlike that of any other.  It is not, as poverty was before, the result of natural scarcity, but of a set of priorities imposed upon the rest of the world by the rich.  Consequently, the modern poor are not pitied…but written off as trash.  The twentieth-century consumer economy has produced the first culture for which a beggar is a reminder of nothing. “- John Berger

Since I can remember, all our past and present government leaders have been singing the same old tiresome tune about championing the poor and eradicating poverty and improving the social welfare services…….

And till today, we still see the same snail-pace processing of genuine cases. Till today, we still see these so-called heads of various governmental welfare departments (who are usually so well fed that they’re practically dripping with fat) dragging their feet in disbursing measly sum of welfare aid to the poor.

Ella Mae totally hit the nail on the spot when she said this…..

“That’s how our society is. We are ever so willing to raise funds for disasters thousands of miles away but when our own neighbour is in need… we don’t do anything.

This is what i believe, each one of us can make a difference in this world. We must look out for our neighbours, friends and loved ones.

I am not saying we give away big sums of money, but if we can share our food with those who are in need… we too can make some difference in this nasty world.”

Tempe King, Khir Toyo is a botox-ed face hypocrite!

Posted by barbie on February 18, 2009

Tempe King, Khir Toyo is a botox-ed face hypocrite!

The REAL face before tempe and botox treatment

On Eli’s Wong nude photos:

KLANG: Selangor Opposition chief and former Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo has called for Pakatan Rakyat state executive councillor Elizabeth Wong to resign on moral grounds.

He said Malaysians were not ready to accept leaders who were embroiled in scandals.

Given this, he said Wong must relinquish all her positions.

This is a moral issue and Malaysians cannot accept leaders with moral issues and so she must vacate her State Assembly seat.

And after Eli offered to resign, the morally constipated Khir Toyo said this:

Selangor opposition chief Datuk Seri Dr Khir Toyo commended her for offering to resign, saying it was the right thing to do.

Dr Mohd Khir said that it was an unfortunate turn of events but said he appreciated Wong’s move to immediately resign.

It is good that there is a trend in Malaysia now whereby embattled elected representatives readily resign from their posts,” he said.

But, Khir Toyo.. what you said when photos of your representatives clearly in a compromising position were leaked out?

Dari Jelapang ke Jelutong: Suatu Kisah Penentangan

Posted by barbie on February 11, 2009

(This is the Bahasa Malaysia version for the previous post by Oscar – From Jelapang to Jelutong: A Tale of Defiance)

Nampak gayanya saya sudah semakin tua. Sudah banyak kali, saya mendapati diri saya terkapai-kapai, lemas dalam cubaan untuk merungkaikan kemelut politik Malaysia. Barangkali politik Malaysia itu sendiri yang semakin celaru untuk difahami, bukan kerana dangkalnya akal fikiran saya.

Kita ambil contoh, kes Karpal Singh. Beliau hendak menyaman Sultan Perak. Ramai yang tidak gembira dengan keputusan beliau ingin berbuat demikian. Banyak laporan polis telah dibuat di beberapa tempat, semuanya atas tuduhan bahawa Karpal Singh derhaka, kurang ajar, biadap; malah ada yang menyifatkan beliau sebagai pembelot kerana kerana menyanggah keputusan Sultan.

Bahagian ini yang saya tidak faham. Mengapa Karpal tidak boleh menyaman Sultan Perak? Itu adalah hak beliau untuk berbuat demikian. Sudah tentu, segelintir daripada kita mungkin berpendapat beliau tidak patut berbuat demikian, kerana adalah adat untuk seorang rakyat biasa menunjukkan taat setia dan patuh kepada raja yang berdaulat.

Tetapi pada zaman sekarang, dengan pembaharuan undang undang yang berdaya maju, hak seorang warganegara untuk membawa pemimpin ke mahkamah keadilan adalah suatu nilai kebebasan yang paling asas yang wujud di semua badan kehakiman di dunia. Sekiranya Karpal tidak mempunyai kes yang kukuh, saman beliau akan ditolak oleh mahkamah, yang mana beliau akan menanggung kos perbelanjaan mahkamah. Di dalam apa jua keadaan, badan kehakiman yang akan dipertanggunjawab untuk menegakkan keadilan.

Ini membawa saya kepada satu lagi kemusykilan. Mengapa ada segelintir rakyat yang marah kepada Karpal Singh kerana ingin menyaman Sultan? Saya rasa ini sesuatu yang amat lucu. Karpal Singh telah berkecimpung dalam bidang saman-menyaman Sultan, sejak sekian lama.

Pada tahun 1986, beliau menfailkan saman sivil ke atas Sultan Johor, Tunku Mahmood Iskandar yang pada masa itu merupakan Yang di-Pertuan Agong. Saman sivil itu difailkan bagi pihak Daeng Baha Ismail untuk meminta ganti rugi/pampasan serang (Daeng Baha Ismail telah dibawa ke Istana Johor dalam keadaan bergari oleh pegawai polis dan ditumbuk serta dipukul berkali-kali oleh Sultan di hadapan kerabat diraja yang lain). Karpal kalah dalam kes tersebut, dan desas desus menyatakan Sultan kemudianya menggunakan nama Karpal sebagai nama salah seekor anjing baginda. (“A Malaysian Who Dared Sue a King” Far Eastern Economic Review, 20 May, 1993).

Pada tahun 1995, Karpal menfailkan saman ke atas Yang di-Pertuan Agong pada pada itu, Tuanku Jaafar Rahman, Sultan Negeri Sembilan. Aduan dibuat bahawa Tuanku Jaafar telah menipu seorang ahli perniagaan dalam urusniaga tanah di Port Dickson. Karpal juga menyatakan hasrat untuk menfailkan pertuduhan pecah amanah dan telah membuat laporan polis ke atas Tuanku Jaafar. Tuanku Jaafar kemudiannya dilaporkan menyelesaikan kes tersebut di luar mahkamah dengan sejumlah besar bayaran.

Pada tahun 1996, Karpal mewakili Faridah Begun bte Abdullah untuk menyaman Sultan Pahang di Mahkamah Khas, akan tetapi kes tersebut tidak berjaya atas sebab-sebab teknikal.

Jadi, mengapa baru sekarang ramai orang berkecil hati dan tersinggung dengan perbuatan Karpal Singh? Saya merasakan bahawa perkara ini memang sengaja dipolitikkan.

Dan saya tidak sekali setuju dengan semua laporan polis yang telah dibuat atas tuduhan biadap dan menghina kedaulatan institusi raja-raja Melayu. Adalah jelas bahawa, rakyat Malaysia secara amnya mudah lupa.

Pada tahun 1983, kerajaan Barisan Nasional telah mengambil tindakan meminda Perlembagaan supaya kuasa Yang di-Pertuan Agong untuk menolak rang undang-undang yang dilulus oleh Parlimen dibatalkan, oleh sekaligus menjadikan baginda sebagai ‘rubber stamp’.

Pada tahun 1993, sekali lagi kerajaan Barisan Nasional melupuskan immuniti raja-raja dan Yang di-Pertuan Agong dengan pindaan ke atas Rang Undang-Undang Akta Perlembagaan (Pindaan) 1993 dan ini membolehkan baginda dan raja-raja lain disaman atas perbuatan mereka.

Dengan izin, bukankah pindaan-pindaan rang undang-undang perlembagaan ini memberi kesan serta akibat yang lebih dahsyat dan teruk kepada Sultan-Sultan khususnya institusi raja-raja itu berbanding apa yang dilakukan oleh Karpal sekarang? Tiada siapa yang mengadu atau membabi-buta membuat laporan polis ketika itu, sedangkan kuasa institusi beraja telah dilucutkan dan dipijak sewenang-wenangnya oleh BN dan UMNO pada masa itu. Tiada siapa yang berani mengadakan tunjuk perasaan, siap dengan kain rentang, sepanduk; juga kain ikat berwarna kuning.

Sekarang, seorang rakyat hendak menyaman Sultan dan tiba-tiba ia menimbulkan kekecohan. Pemuda Umno, yang sememangnya lebih gaya dari rupa, seperti dijangkakan telah menawarkan khidmat untuk mempertahankan kedaulatan institusi raja-raja Melayu; institusi yang telah diperkosa oleh parti ibundanya – UMNO beberapa dekad yang lalu.

Khabarkan pada saya sekali lagi, mengapa saya tidak memahami politik Malaysia.

Election Commission is piece of lying shit! Just bring on the by election! Oh so much shits going on, I feel shitty writing this shit.

Posted by barbie on February 4, 2009

Just reading this making me want to vomit.

When asked by the reporter whether he had doubts over the two sets of letters ( the first set of letters of resignation sent in earlier, and the second where the two reps now say they have not resigned ), he replied : “You got two letters from two elected representatives and in the same breath you get another set of letters from same people. So how to make a decision? Because of the doubts created, we cannot make a decision to declare the seats as vacant. Therefore status quo remains“.

Status quo remains, yet they made the decision in favour of the second letter, purportedly by the missing reps! And why these two reps never come out and make their statements openly but through some middle mans? Where the hell are these two reps? Suspicion has been raised regarding identities of the people making the statements on behalf of the two missing PKR reps.

When asked whether the Commission would investigate the discrepancy between the two letters, he replied : “No, that is not our duty. Our duty is not to investigate. Based on the letters given to us we make the decision“.

When asked if the Commission would probe the matter further, he replied :

“No, as far as we are concerned, we got two sets of letters. One from the speaker and the other from the two assemblypersons. It is the commission’s responsibility to decide whether the seats are vacant or not”.

Oh? First, they cannot make any decision and now it’s the EC’s responsibility to decide whether the seat are vacant or not? That’s the most unconvincing and lame bullshits ever! This is the damning proof that EC is nothing but a piece of shit working as running dog for the establishment.

It is clear. Umno/BN wants these two reps to join them, WITH THEIR SEATS intact and with so many telling signs this is another Najib’s way of doing things. Just read Tulang Besi’s article at Malaysian Waves for the juicy details.

1) PR government is ready for the by election. Let’s battle it out again and let the rakyat decide once again. So the Speaker declared the seats vacant after ‘received’ the resignation letters from the two reps. It is clear here, Umno doesn’t want to go for another by election. Perhaps Ezam is tired of hauling his magic boxes and letters everywhere with him everytime by election come.

2) Najib became UMNO Perak’s head and two reps are missing until now! Well we know how Najib is expert in handling missing person. Where’s Bala now?

3) There are points being raised regarding the resignation letters saying it could be signed under duress. It is an OPEN SECRET that assemblymen of Pakatan Rakyat signed the undated resignation letter few days after they became “Yang Berhormat”. Signing it under duress? My foot!

A simple analogy of the ‘undated resignation letter’ would be like those matrimonial/prenuptial agreements to protect the groom/bride so when anything happens, any of the groom/bride can go to court and get their marriage declared null. Nobody signed it under duress, they were too happy to:

- in the case of the married couple, to finally get the license to copulate  accordance to the law.

- in the case of the assemblymen, they finally become Yang Berhormat and state exco.

4) We love by elections. Constituencies are development overnight. New tarred roads, street lightings, influxs of education funds, promises of new market, factories, investments – things the rakyat can’t get during other times. Bring on the by election!

5) Latest update/rumours saying 3 PR reps already resigned from their parties. Agenda Daily has the story.

“ADUN Behrang, Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi dan Changkat Jering, Osman Jailu dari Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) dan ADUN Jelapang Hee Yit Foong yang juga Timbalan Speaker DUN Perak hari Rabu telah menghantar surat kepada parti masing-masing memaklumkan keputusan keluar parti.”

Check out the letters and the content. Notice the header, the way it is written almost identical. Yes, that’s how idiots do things in Malaysia. And, read what these reps said to their respective parties.

“Sila ambil maklum bahawa perisytiharan saya keluar parti/tidak lagi menjadi ahli DAP tidak bermaksud saya meletakan jawatan selaku Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri dan apa jua notis perletakan jawatan sebagai Ahli Dewan Negeri yang ditandatangani secara “undated” dan tidak cop rasmi saya adalah dengan ini terbatal secara ab initio.”

(Please be informed that my decision to quit the party doesn’t mean I am resigning from my position as ADUN and what ever resignation notices signed “undated” and without my official seal should be considered invalid as ab initio) – pardon my lousy translation.

That’s an example of utmost power crazy statement for you.

6) Najib is said to announce at a press conference in Putrajaya at 4pm that BN will take over the Perak government with these 3 reps jumping over to their side. And from Malaysia Today:

Malaysia Today

The Sultan of Perak is said to be in Kuala Lumpur. The Perak Menteri Besar is not able to have an audience with Tuanku to request the dissolution of the Perak State Assembly.

Perak has fallen.

Deputy Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak will announce the formation of a new Perak state government at 4.00pm today in Putrajaya.

Dato Nasaruddin has crossed back to Umno. Two more DAP Perak State Assemblyman/ women are said to have defected.

Five Pakatan Rakyat State Assemblymen in Kedah are said to be ready to cross over to Barisan Nasional. The Kedah state government is also about to fall.

If this is true, these reps just signed their political death letter to incur the wrath of the people. The public sentiment is overwhelmingly against the corrupt establishment, their acts would be forever remembered as betrayal to the people.

I am tired of this shit. Aren’t you?

MP Kapar, please resign fast! Good riddance! We don’t love you Mike..

Posted by barbie on December 31, 2008

MP Manikavasagam quitting PKR

The representative from Kapar, S. Manikavasagam, told mStar Online that he was quitting because he was disappointed with the attitude of Selangor PKR leaders, who he claimed had neglected the needs of the people. He also cited in-fighting among the state leaders as a reason.

Two words. Good riddance.

He did it before, and now he’s doing it again. If he’s saying he’s the protege of Samyvellu, nobody will say otherwise. He has mastered the art of saying one thing, doing another thing almost flawless now. This guy, has been blackmailing Pakatan Rakyat and threatened to resign before, yet he’s still there. WTF dude? Attention seeker? Cry baby?

From his own blog:

Breaking News – Manikavasagam to resign

It shows he is serious and committed in upholding the rights of all Human Being. When conveying this message at Kulai last night he says “I’m not like other leaders holding on position despite knowing Rakyat’s rejection”

No idea what the idiot was saying by “holding on position despite knowing Rakyat’s rejection.”

Of course, in true flip flop style (we already saw this coming), he then retracted his decision to resign, because HIS demands has been met. This is not blackmailing then what? Going to public media like that? Lack of PR skills and not media savvy, are you?

From Malaysiakini,

Selangor PKR leader S Manikavasagam will not relinquish his post as the party’s state liaison deputy chief, said his political secretary M Shanmugam today. “Manikavasagam will retain his post as PKR deputy liaison chief for Selangor following the suspension of the person behind the demolition,” said Shanmugam (his political secretary)

Now, he is doing it again. After making such a big issue about resigning with surprisingly perfect timing with the coming by-election in Kuala Terengganu, you thought he would do it for real!  But, no!

Not before he said in NST that Selangor MB and PAS head are back-stabbing by “accepting his decision” to step down. He was saying both Selangor should discuss things with him first before they come out with that kind of remarks in the media. WTF?

SHAH ALAM: Kapar member of parliament S. Manikavasa- gam said Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang was ungrateful and a backstabber for asking him to resign his post as an MP before he had made his final decision.

“Earlier, it was the menteri besar (Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim) and now it is Hadi. This is not right. They should have discussed it with me.

“I guess they could not wait for me to resign and quit the party even when I have not made a final decision.

“Hadi forgot that the Indian community and I had helped a lot during the last general election.

“Previously, the Indian community did not support Pas but now they are willing to hold Pas flags,” he said when contacted yesterday.

Hey! Discuss what again? Who the idiot went amok in the media, making it such a big issue and let the MainStreamMedia (MSM) blowing it out of proportion? So, what you did was right? Shouldn’t you discuss with other PKR leaders first? What final decision? You want to resign, do it. Like we care! We don’t need such childish, idiotic leader, please. Go ahead and resign!!

Now, I have this to say to you, and I know you will be reading this, since I link this article to your blog.

“…..forgot that the Indian community and I had helped a lot during the last general election”

Thank you very much. Where you contested again? In Kapar right? So who you think voted you in to the position you are holding now? The Indians? Bite this fact!

Kapar has 112,224 registered voters – the largest constituency in the country – with Malays forming the majority at 51.4 percent and Chinese at 35.4 percent. Indians make up 13 percent, working mainly in oil palm plantations and the factory sector.

Indians form only 12% of the voters while the Malays form 50% and they gave you 12,000 majority during the last general election. Talking about being grateful?? You are not fit to utter the word, Mr. Mike!

Yet now you are behaving as if you were was elected by Indians alone! Such insensitive  behaviour and making threats, acting like a hooligan. Karpal Singh is right when he said:

”People did not elect him in his personal capacity. He has no right to leave PKR and join any other party. His only other option is to resign so that the people in the constituency can decide what they want.”

And thank you again for creating this issue so that the very biased MSM jump on it like rabid dogs.  Just look at NST Online, how many “special reports” dedicated for this fiasco, with misleading title like “Pakatan Rakyat Row Hots Up”, when it is really about one stupid, insecure, selfish MP trying to get some attentions. BAH!

p/s: Do we need another Indian party? Indians have MIC, IPF, PPP, Hindraf,  bla bla and that new party by Nalla, are we going to have another Indian party?

50 Indian leaders plan meeting to decide on their future in PKR:

…one of the options to be considered at the meeting is a mass resignation followed by the setting up of a new party to represent the interest of Indian members.”

Although with a population lesser than the other major races in Malaysia, Indians are probably having a bit too many ‘Indian’ parties to choose from to “represent their interests” . Own interest or Indian interest?

p/p/s: Yeah.. he’s not resigning. Nah! Like we couldn’t see that coming already. What are you trying to achieve from all this fiasco, Mike? Blame the media again, ah? Aiyo..

DAMN YOU MTF%!&*!**!! After tarnishing the image of Pakatan Rakyat, allowing MSM to capitalise and mislead public on the PR’s unity, now you are making a U-turn? You are a joke!

A Somali’s perception of Mahathir
Friday, October 31, 2008

Din,
I’m a Somali living in Malaysia who follows the local scene here very much. I would have to admit that Tun Dr M’s greatest disadvantage is his pure, unadulterated hatred for anyone who disagrees with him. Never have I seen a human being whose sole motivation, drive and engine is pure hatred. Just visit his blog which is read by friends and foes, locals and foreigners and I must tell you it epitomizes him in every way.

Since he started it after complaining of UMNO media strangulation, did you see an article that he has written concerning the poor, the needy, the widows, the orphans, the handicapped, the downtrodden, the wayfarers, compassion, empathy, sharing, sacrifice, charity, morality, accountability, God’s fear and Judgement, forgiveness, patience (etc)? No.

Always it is about some people, blaming others, calling them names, dishing out unvanished, pure hatred. Blaming others for this and that and exonerating himself from all blame? Surely, at this age? You can’t build a society and a nation through hate, vengeance, intense anger and mean spirit. You would have to remind the people the higher purpose of life for them to get motivated and work harder for the less fortunate and for themselves. Finger pointing, blaming others, planting defeatist culture in the Malays, reducing them to mad people (we are sensitive, we will run amok society that makes even foreigners despise the Malays) will not help this society and nation.

My people (the Somalis) suffered from cruel leadership and when the hatred became too much, we turned to each other and till today, we the only nation with no Central govt. The Malays share with us almost every trait, very feudal, manipulated easily, territorial, misuse of Islam for expediency, rigid explanation of Islam and too much interest in outward Islam than inward Islam that strengthens the hearts, our only difference is that the Malays have the Chinese and the Indians around that make them watch out for the “enemies.”

For us, we didn’t have that and that’s why we turned to each other. If God has loved the Malays and Malaysia, it is because He brought other people here. If some Malays regret the presence of the Chinese and Indians, ask us the Somalis and you will know what it means to be an incestous (homogenous) society and you will praise the Almighty day in day out. If it was possible, I would have shipped the Chinese and Indians to Somalia to create diversity in my nation but it is wishful thinking.

The other person who makes me cringe in shame is one Curry[Khairy] Jamaluddin. Never have I seen a more uncouth, uncultured, degenerate, pugancious, ill, nefarious and utterly infantile being than this young man. I have a big heart who tries to understand everyone and put itself in their place, but I don’t think my heart can accommodate one Curry Jamaluddin. He is a primate and deserves the worst treatment (though I hate it because we are Muslims and human beings) but honestly he is too much. Abubakar
