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?

“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”….. 😛

“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!!!!!

Malaysian aka UMNO Politics Will Never Change….Will They?????

Posted by ErnieJean on March 19, 2009

I had such a GREAT couple of days vacation getaway with the family recently, totally secluded from all the monkeying antics of nation’s political leaders. There were no newspapers, internet facilities that were too extorbitant to be bothered with and a vacation crowd that was not interested in discussing Malaysian political crap. Totally refreshing, but I guess, one has to come back to Mother Earth sooner or later.

Natural, it was almost a “rude wake-up call from the escapade dreams at Neverland” to open up today’s papers and see that nothing has changed much…..someone is still seriously hell-bent on claiming his stake at the throne (by killing off those who may not be his political alliance in th future), idiotic ass-kissing politicians making nonsensical statements and of course the theatrical antics that comes with it all.

Seriously…….when are we ever going to see changes for the better…FOR ONCE!!!!????

The UMNO disciplinary board mentioned something about Malaysians being generally cynical over their every action…..well, A-BUH-DEN!!!??? I know we’re the country of coincidences, but where got so many coincidences wan!!! You tell me lah!!!

So it seems, Ali Rustam and the famous (but not for long) SIL are the first victims of the “UMNO Spring Cleaning” exercise. While I’m glad the racist Malaccan bigot is getting what’s due, honestly, it doesn’t matter who goes first because do you seriously think there’s one, just one, honest-to-goodness UMNO politician in the entire pack? Especially the ones who are contesting for positions this coming UMNO assembly?

As for idiotic “throwing stones in the glasshouse that one lives in” statements, this latest one by a politician from an almost completely wiped out political partner of BN takes the cake;

(The Star) – Gerakan vice-president Huan Cheng Guan has called on Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to resign if there is evidence that members of the DAP-led state government are involved in corruption.

‘‘Practise what you preach. Lim has been going around saying his government is the cleanest ever but now there is an allegation of wrongdoing in his government,” Huan said.

He said that as a matter of principle, Lim should be responsible for the actions of his subordinates.

You know what? I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU Mr. Huan…….so how about issuing that statement to all political leaders besides the ones who kicked you guys out of your political home?

Come On!!!! Be a MAN!!!! Say it to the face of the big boss UMNO taikor about being responsible for his subordinates who threatened Malaysians with keris and bad breath, scaring little children with bad plastic surgeries, throwing diva tantrums, harrassing harmless wheelchair bound old men, embarrassing the nation, siphoning the nation’s wealth to some other foreign land, messing up the country’s education system and a whole lot of incredibly unthinkeable wrongdoings.

And then, say the same thing to the big bosses of your fellow ass-kissing BN political partners about stealing plots of land from the people, building illegal political centres, selling out the ones that they were supposed to protect for power and wealth……….

Yes, it’s nice to know things still remain status quo as far as our political landscape is concerned………while our economy slips a few notches down south……….

Reducing Unemployment : What UMNO Does With The “Un-Employables”….

Posted by ErnieJean on February 11, 2009

Remember sometime last year, when our dear ole 2nd Finance Minister, Tan Sri Nor Mohamed assured the nation that the country’s unemployment would not go beyond 4% in year 2009?

As we all know, most of Nor Mohamed’s sugar coated predictions are to be taken with a pinch of salt.

So, it’s hardly a surprise when MIER (Malaysian Institute of Economy Research) came up recently with , I think, a more realistic assessment of the unemployment rate of 4.5%. In fact an economist Datuk Dr. Zainal Aznan Tusof predicted that the figure could very well go up to 6%. That’s definitely an alarming thought, since during the good times, unemployment rates were kept well below 3%.

With so many people being retrenched, what do you think our UMNO-led government is going to do?

With so many of them boasting about being graduates from Oxford, Cambridge, Hardknocks and Whatnots, it’s only fair that our expectations are high, no?

How utterly dissapointing it is to see the “brilliant” minds of our leaders coming up with such re-employment scheme!!!!

Apologise or face daily demos, warns Umno Youth

KUALA LUMPUR: Umno Youth wants DAP national chairman Karpal Singh to drop any lawsuit against the Sultan of Perak or it will demonstrate outside his office in Jalan Pudu every day. (Demonstrate everyday!!!!??? Lu orang tak payah kerja ar!!!!??? )

“We want any action to bring the Sultan to court to cease immediately because it can jeopardise public security and Karpal Singh must ask for forgiveness from the Sultan,” said Serdang Umno Youth chief Ungku Mat Salleh.

They also called for the arrest of PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and former Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin for not heeding the Sul­tan’s directive that the latter resign.

Some 50 Umno Youth members from Selangor and Federal Territory marched to Karpal Singh’s office yesterday. The demonstration stopped rush hour traffic around the busy Puduraya area.

Working hard for the money.....

Employing the "Un-Employables" : Working hard for the money.....

umno-protest-21

Employing the "Un-Employables" : We don't makan gaji buta, u know?

Demonstrate everyday!!!!???? These people don’t need to make a living meh? I must be mistaken because I assumed since times are bad, people should be working doubly hard to put food on their tables. Perhaps this sort of “occupation” pays handsomely……too bad I’m “over-qualified”  😛

But then again, this bunch of hooligans represent UMNO and we all know how UMNO takes care so absolutely lovingly of their “volunteers”, right? Be it the by-election, house-warming, ceramahs, visitation to some charity homes, there’s always the meal allowances, accomodation allowances, transportation allowances, exposure-to-hot-sun allowances, hooliganism allowances, and so on and so forth to look forward to, no?

And by the way, you UMNO goons really think we Malaysians forget soooo easily, don’t you?

If anyone needs to apologise to their Sultan for being rude and disrespectful, it should be the leaders of UMNO!! Remember this? Well, most of us still do…….so how?

22 Barisan Nasional (BN) state assemblymen led by the secretary of the State Umno Liaison Body, Datuk Rosol Wahid, who opposed the appointment of Ahmad as the Terengganu Menteri Besar in place of Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, arrived at Istana Tetamu about 7.50 am to hand over the letter of protest on the appointment.

Rosol, who was not allowed to enter the palace, later handed over the letter to the Secretary of the Terengganu Regency Advisory Council, Shafie Ali.

When met by reporters, Rosol said the letter, among other tings, stated that all the 22 BN elected representatives fully supported the reppointment of Idris as the Menteri Besar and rejected Ahmad’s appointment as the new MB.

“Our support for Datuk Seri Idris is unanimous. There is no other person qualified to hold the Menteri Besar’s post apart from him (Idris),” Rosol said.

He said Ahmad’s appointment was invalid and hoped that those involved would take a serious view on the matter as it involved the interest of the people in the state.

He said if Ahmad were to proceed with his intention to take the oath of office as Menteri Besar, the Kijal Assemblyman would be violating the party rules and action could be taken against him, including expulsion from the party.

“That’s why we sent the letter of protest because Umno and BN secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor had informed me last night that Ahmad would be contravening the Umno constitution should he take the oath of office,” he said.

Rosol said the protest letter had been sent to Ahmad and a copy to the Head of the MPPR.

Since the Terengganu BN won in the general election on March 8, winning 24 of the 32 State Assembly seats and seven of the eight parliamentary seats, the state government had functioned without a Menteri Besar.

On Saturday, Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said disciplinary action could be taken against Ahmad if he were to accept the post of Terengganu Menteri Besar as he would be going against the instruction of the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who wanted Idris to remain as the MB.

Abdullah, who is also BN chairman and Umno president, had issued a letter nominating Idris as the Terengganu Menteri Besar.

Meanwhile, several supporters of Idris were seen gathering at the official resi

dence of the Menteri Besar at Seri Iman, here, to give their support to the Jertih Assemblyman to be reappointed as the MB for a second term.

(Excerpt from Bernama, 23 March 2008)

So.....who is "Natang"?

So.....who is "Natang"?

Any idea who these bunch of yo-yos are calling “NATANG”?

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.

Hamidah Osman, The Indian and The Snake!

Posted by ella-mae on February 10, 2009

hamidah1

Barisan Nasional ADUN from Sungei Rapat, Hamidah Osman was sworn in this morning as a Perak EXCO member.

Malaysian Insider had earlier reported Hamidah Osman was not too happy with Zambry’s appointment because she had great expectations to be the country’s first female Menteri Besar.

She was probably not made the MB because Hamidah Osman prefers a certain type of reptile more than some of her constituents.

ist2_3459444-hanging-snake-cartoon1

Remember this???

Noooo…Hamidah Osman did not mean our Feather-Indian friend here…

clevelandindian1

Let’s reminisce together…

Hamidah says ‘sorry’ for racial slur – MalaysiaKini

Ahti Veeranggan | Jun 28, 08 6:55pm

Sungai Rapat state assemblyperson Hamidah Osman, who caused a furore in the Perak legislative assembly on Friday with her racial slur, has publicly apologised for hurting the Indian community.

At a packed press conference in the Ipoh Country Club this morning, the Barisan Nasional elected representative issued the public apology before newsmen, saying that it was not her intention to hurt the Indian community with a racial slur.

“I have already retracted my statement in the House and now, I am  offering my humble and sincere apology here to all Indians for uttering the racist remarks in the heat of the moment.

“I regret for saying that and promise not to repeat it anywhere anymore,” said a visibly moved Hamidah, who plans to embark on a ‘constituency road-show’ to explain and apologise over the incident to electorates in Gopeng, which encompasses Sungai Rapat.

Her apology came in the wake of several police reports lodged by Perak Indian-based public interests groups such as cultural-based organisation Ipoh Tamilar Tirunaal (ITT) organising committee, which has 30 Indian NGO affiliates.

Remarks spark furore

ITT advisor M Mathialagan, a lawyer, lodged the report condemning Hamidah’s racial slur and called upon her to openly apologise to all Indian Malaysians.

During a fiery state assembly meeting in Ipoh yesterday, Hamidah earned the wrath of Pakatan Rakyat assemblypersons when she asked whether speaker Sivakumar (an Indian) ‘agreed to disagree’ with a well-known fable of whether a snake or a man from a certain racial community should be killed first.

Her ‘un-assembly-like’ question sparked a furore, prompting Pakatan Rakyat elected representatives led by executive councillor Nga Kor Ming (DAP-Pantai Remis) to demand that she retracts her words.

However, Hamidah maintained her innocence and said she was merely asking if Sivakumar “agreed to disagree” with it.

The speaker who is also DAP Tronoh assemblyperson instead let her off the hook with a mere warning of “not to repeat such sensitive remarks.”

She later retracted her words.

Hamidah was roundly criticised by elected representatives and public interests groups from inside and outside Perak for uttering racist remarks in the House.

DAP Buntong state assemblyperson A Sivasubramaniam did not mince his words, labeling her “a racist upholding BN tradition of racial brand politics”.

“It is ungainly graceless for a people’s representative to utter such racist remarks against the speaker and his community,” he said.

Playing with fire

Sivasubramaniam also said Hamidah’s remarks was proof that BN, particularly Umno, had yet to accept its electoral defeat and conform to the reality that “a speaker of Indian origin was presiding the House”.

“She and Umno are playing with fire by hurting the racial sentiment of others,” he told Malaysiakini.

Meanwhile, Penang’s Datuk Keramat assemblyperson Jagdeep Singh Deo said the Perak assembly should have suspended Hamidah immediately and referred her to the Privileges Committee for disciplinary action.

Over the years, Jagdeep’s father, Bukit Gelugor MP Karpal Singh has had in several instances clashed with Barisan MPs in Parliament over similar racist remarks that implicitly portrayed “the Indian community as more venomous than a snake”.

The Penang assemblyperson said Hamidah’s racial slur clearly showed BN had not learnt its lessons from the last general election.

He suggested that another round of elections would remind the coalition that “its racial brand politics no longer appeals to the majority of Malaysians”.

However, a Perak government insider said Hamidah was not referred to the Privilege Committee because she was deliberately left to “suffer public condemnation”.

“She could have become an Umno ‘heroine’ and evaded public humiliation since she would gain ‘immunity’ if referred to the committee.

“The game plan worked to force Hamidah to come out and openly apologise to Indians in Perak and the country as well,” the insider said.

Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise: the newly (I still cannot believe MY SULTAN DID THIS) installed Perak state government does not have a single Indian rep.

So with this new (I still cannot believe MY SULTAN DID THIS) state government in place, Hamidah Osman can no longer threaten to beat up anyone from the ruling (I still cannot believe MY SULTAN DID THIS) coalition.

Or can she still?

Dear Mr. Education Minister……

Posted by ErnieJean on January 9, 2009

Dear Mr. Minister Of My Child’s Education, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin,

I am writting to you as a very concerned mother of a child who goes to a Sekolah Kebangsaan somewhere in Selangor.

As it is, parents like myself already have it up to our ears with concerns for issues that shouldn’t be issues in the first place………but I’m sure you’re trying your “darnest best” to resolve them although we’ve yet to see any actual action plan being executed since you took over this ministry in March 2004.

Infact, some people say things have actually gotten WORST…..the quality of teachers and school heads, physical condition of schools especially those located in Pakatan Rakyat districts,  school syllabus, etc………..care to counter that? Btw, I still think having Pendidikan Moral as an exam subject is one of the worst idea ever.

Then there is the introduction of the compulsory National Service. Despite constant assurances from your future party president and government and numerous damage control steps taken, our children are still very much at the mercies of poor execution…..from food poisoning (still happening, mind you), “hamsap” trainers, non-existant qualified medical personnels, to dangerously and poorly constructed camp sites.

Yes, I know National Service doesn’t fall under your category….just pointing out what else us average Malaysian parents have to suffer through besides trying to overcome the crappy education system.

If I’m not mistaken, our children are still guinea pigs in your ministry’s never-ending experiments……….one minute it’s English, next it’s Bahasa Melayu, then Bahasa Malaysia……..perhaps that’s why your teachers are no longer motivated.

We’re also told that our children, even those coming into adulthood, are not allowed to initiate or participate in well-intented causes or whatever healthy activities that may be associated with them, including cycling, regardless of whether their parents have given their blessings or not…..as long as the government say “cannot” means “cannot”.

But on the other hand, “rempit-ing” seems to be OK up your alley. Why?

Now, right after giving all sorts of crappy excuses about children not being allowed to participate in rallies for fear of being exploited, you must have thought Malaysians really forget very easily and in what I assume to be an attempt to boost your deflating political popularity, our children are now made into your personal political pawns once again.

 PUTRAJAYA: Nearly all schoolchildren in the country will be mobilised to protest against the Gaza offensive by Israeli forces.

Education Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said about five million pupils and 360,765 teachers from more than 10,000 schools would be involved.

“This is to create a wave of pressure for the Israelis to stop their violence and oppression of Palestinian civilians.”

He said the ministry would be working with the Information, Foreign, and Youth and Sports Ministries, as well as Peace Malaysia, to expand the campaign to a mega scale.

“We are confident that youth leaders from political parties, including those in Pakatan Rakyat will join us in this fight against the Zionist regime,” he said after his ministry’s New Year gathering at Putrajaya International Convention Centre here yesterday.

Hishammuddin said the directive was passed in the cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

Asked on the danger of exposing children to such atrocities, the minister said: “When they grow up, they will have to face global issue like peace, environment and the economic crisis.” – nst

So, being exposed to and fighting for global issues like peace, environment and economic concerns is ok and not considered child-exploitation, so long they don’t concern or disturb your rice bowl!!???

Who cares if the kids get emotionally or mentally disturbed after seeing pictures of dead bodies, right?

But hands-off local issues as that may threaten your political ambitions? Is that what the police harrassment of the JERIT cyclists incident all about!!???

And in the first place, who gave you the green light to USE our children to fill up the numbers in your proposed protest against the Israelites?

I believe in teaching my children to make right what’s in their own backyard first before preaching to the others, least we be called “HYPOCRITES“!!!

Anyway, thank you for your time and patience.

Yours Sincerely,

Ernie Jean.

P.S.  Just a word of advise, you should seriously consider quitting your keris-kissing act, for you do look absolutely ridiculous.

Are you going to make this person your kid's role model?

Are you going to make this person your kid's role model?

“Bodek” As “Bodek” Can Be………..

Posted by ErnieJean on January 9, 2009

I must admit…….I tend to look forward to by-elections, simply for the reason that there’s when writers (seniors or otherwise) of the main stream media (and of course our speech writers of BN politicians) really work up their creative juices to give us crap (a diplomatic term for “bodeking“), hoping to be able to pass them of as the ultimate truths……yes, it can be downright irritating sometimes, but hey, it is also kinda enlightening and entertaining to see how someone’s pride, dignity and soul can be so easily bought.

Contrast of brash and quiet styles

Analysis
By WONG SAI WAN, The Star 9 January 2009

PKR information chief Tian Chua clad in his photographer’s vest – the one with lots of pockets – has been hitting the streets since the eve of nomination day and, in his usual brazen and aggressive style, has been trying to drive home his message to the voters.

His opposite number, Umno information chief Tan Sri Muham-mad Muhammad Taib, has been flying in and out of Kuala Terengganu as he had to carry out his ministerial duties and be election director for the ruling coalition at the same time.

Whenever he is in town, he would adopt a low-key approach and meet the people directly.

(Be more specific here…..he adopted a low-key approach OR nobody wanted to approach him?)

The two men signify the vastly different styles of campaigning adopted by the two sides. It is the aggressive West Coast PKR style versus the more laid-back friendly East Coast style adopted by the Barisan.

(See how with a simple twist of words, “not laku” has been re-termed as “laid back friendly“)

When Pakatan Rakyat chief Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim went to meet voters in Kampung Cina – the Chinese area which has been the focus of all parties – a mega-phone announced his presence.

It proved effective in grabbing attention because almost everyone in the shops and houses came out and shook his hand.

On the other hand, when Barisan leaders went to the area, they did so humbly and did not announce their presence with a mega-phone. They quietly went from shop to shop to meet the occupants and shoppers.

(Hahahahah……..maybe scared kena pelted by rotten vegies…….)

Barisan’s candidate Datuk Wan Farid Wan Salleh and Barisan national leaders prefer the personal touch instead of the aggressive approach of the opposition parties. The ruling coalition is doing away with the usual pomp that it is usually associated with.

It is not known if the two differing styles are deliberate plans by the respective sides or just a reflection of the personality of those involved in the contest.

However, the contrasting methods have created the impression that PAS’ Mohd Abdul Wahid Endut is in the lead because of the louder Pakatan tactics.

(Correction Sai Wan,  PAS is in the lead becos of bigger local supports……hence more noise!)

PAS is going full force, with ceramahs every night all over the place, while Barisan is limiting itself to meeting the voters in small groups in an informal setting in the evenings.

(Really? That’s not what the State police chief Shukri said…….BN was given 5 ceramah permits whereas PAS only managed to get 3………Does that mean BN is basically hogging the permits?

And in the first place why is there a need for permits to hold ceramahs during elections again?)

Anwar’s ceramah on Tuesday was attended by thousands.

Sharing the stage with him were PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat and president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang, and DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang. 

It remains to be seen if the differing styles will continue when the Barisan big guns descend on Kuala Terengganu over the weekend, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today and MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat tomorrow.

(Talk about arriving in all grandeur and pomp…….is being escorted by outriders and arriving in a convoy of SUVs considered “Laid-Back Low Profile”?)

Well, Wong Chun Wai did it and got his datukship……Joceline Tan is still trying but not there yet…….do you think someone’s trying to lobby for a datukship too?

Choose The Right Banner And Ye May Speak……

Posted by ErnieJean on January 7, 2009

Talking about demonstrations in Malaysia, I’m suddenly in the mood for a walk down memory lane….so please bear with me 😛

Remember this?

 “We don’t take sides. Even if an NGO, or even government parties were to organise such a gathering without permit, we would have acted in the same way,” – Selangor Police Chief Khalid Abu Bakar, Nov ’08

“…..since the group had not applied for a permit, the gathering was illegal and police had taken action according to the provisions of the law,” – IGP Musa Hassan

“……the fact that they were at an illegal gathering showed the PR leaders did not respect the law. This is an example of bad leadership, allowing activities which are against the law in the state. They have to understand that the law was created to educate the people and preserve harmony and security, especially as they are leaders.” – Botoxed former Selangor MB, Khir Toyo.

So, can someone from the Home Ministry or the PDRM please explain how these group of crazy folks under the banner of UMNO Malacca in Masjid Tanah on December 2008 managed to get away with it!!??

And how this is “absolutely” not causing disharmony or threatening to create unrest amongs Malaysians but cycling and holding candles are!!??

I really hope the voters in the coming by-election in Kuala Terengganu will think deep and hard before casting their votes……for no matter what crap assurances MCA, MIC, Gerakan and the rest of them parties in the BN coalition have given, it’s evident that they’re just mere consorts in UMNO’s harlem.

Under Siege…..You, Me & Them…….

Posted by ErnieJean on January 6, 2009

Like peace-loving citizens all over the world, my heart goes out to the innocent victims caught in the conflict in Palestine. Tears welled when I saw the gruesome pictures of the innocent children who were killed, maimed or disable due to the raining of the bombs and missiles…….I’m going to save the rest of you that heartache by not posting these pictures up…….but I’m sure there’s many around in the internet if you wanna see.
 
FYI, I’m no pro-Israeli or Pro-Palestine…….It doesn’t matter from which side of the fence the innocent victims are from……..Collateral Damages should never be tolerated or accepted!!!
 
Why can’t these two damn warring parties just meet at some deserted desert and fight it out man-to-man (like the good old “hand combat” days) instead of raining bombs and missiles and hiding behind civilians…..  😡
 
At the moment, it looks like any attempts to hold any dialogues with these two groups will remain futile. Nobody wants to be the first to ceasefire. Israel blames Hamas for going back on their agreed ceasefire truce 6 months ago and Hamas militants blames it on continual Israeli raids and blockade……So this merry-go-round will never end!!!!  And add USA’s role to this deadly potion……..sigh……..
 
Now, on the home front, speaking of hiding behind skirts, Malaysians are once again treated to some bravo action from the Son-In-Law.
 
Now, I’m all for supporting all efforts to end these senseless killings (or any other senseless deaths of innocent people for that matter), but how does one endorse something that’s sooooo obviously hypocritical….and that more or less covers any sort of protests organised by UMNO and their “ma chais”.

Barisan Nasional Youth representatives led by their deputy chairman Khairy Jamaluddin turned up in full force at the Palestinian embassy here on Friday, together with othUMNO Youth doing their "thang"er non-governmental and youth organisations, to denounce the Israeli strikes.

They were part of the Coalition Against Israeli Aggression which submitted a memorandum of support to Palestinian ambassador Abdel Aziz Abu Ghoush.

Khairy said a special Palestinian fund had been set up to help those affected by the humanitarian crisis and handed over a RM100,000 mock cheque to Abdel Aziz to kickstart the fund. (Seriously, once again, only fools will donate to UMNO-linked funds…….we all know where majority of those money will end up, don’t we?)

(Any news about what happened to the other UMNO sponsored fund for the Bukit Antarabangsa tragedy?)

Representatives from MCA, MIC, Gerakan and PPP were also at the embassy together with a group of Palestinians who carried various banners calling for an end to the killings.

“The brutal massacre of Palestinians including women and children by the Israeli military has reminded the world of the urgency it must have to bring a just solution for the Palestinian people guaranteeing their sovereignty, security and well-being,” the memorandum stated.

The coalition also condemned economic sanctions and travel restrictions on the Gaza strip and West Bank, called for an immediate ceasefire and proposed a peace summit under United Nations to create an independent Palestine.

“This is a humanitarian issue which transcends religion. This is about the dignity and freedom of the Palestinian people,” said Khairy, who is also Umno Youth deputy head.

The Star, January 2, 2009

I’ve actually got a couple of questions for for the Son-In-Law and his party :-

1) “This is about the dignity and freedom of the Palestinian people

So, how about the dignity and freedom of the Malaysian people?

See how mothers have been reduced to petty thieves, to steal so that their children doesn’t have to go to sleep at nights on empty stomachs.

Or how about the way the ethnic Indians in Malaysia were treated when they decided to show MIC and its empty promises and take matters into their own hands……although the memo to Queen E stunt was a little off……but it’s their freedom mah.

Or how about the way peace loving folks who wanted to hold candle light vigils and cycling events for good causes get harrassed and physically abused by those who were paid to protect them.

How can one talk about protecting the dignity and freedom of another nation when the exact opposite is taking place back home!!??

2) Was a police permit issued for this?

If there was a permit issued, once again, why the double standards?

If there was no permit, why did the police NOT detain these protestors with beating sticks and water cannons?

3) Boycott American products? Erm……if it didn’t work the last time round, what makes you think it’ll garner support this time?

Lookie here dear famous SIL and cronies, Malaysians don’t need you to arrive in your convoy of SUVs to “self beat chests” and “double-talk”……..and we certainly don’t appreciate your self-appointed role as Malaysia’s spokesperson for this cause…..we can smell opportunists from afar anytime and let’s hope that these opportunists will not use the sufferings of others to gain mileage in one’s ambition.

 Let me end with an excerpt from this poem……….

Under Siege by Mahmoud Darwish
Here on the slopes of hills, facing the dusk and the cannon of time
Close to the gardens of broken shadows,
We do what prisoners do,
And what the jobless do:
We cultivate hope.

***
A country preparing for dawn. We grow less intelligent
For we closely watch the hour of victory:
No night in our night lit up by the shelling
Our enemies are watchful and light the light for us
In the darkness of cellars.

***
Here there is no “I”.
Here Adam remembers the dust of his clay.

***
On the verge of death, he says:
I have no trace left to lose:
Free I am so close to my liberty. My future lies in my own hand.
Soon I shall penetrate my life,
I shall be born free and parentless,
And as my name I shall choose azure letters…

***
You who stand in the doorway, come in,
Drink Arabic coffee with us
And you will sense that you are men like us
You who stand in the doorways of houses
Come out of our morningtimes,
We shall feel reassured to be
Men like you!
