Why did the majority reject them? The majority of non-Malays voted PR. more Malays voted for PR. So when Zahid Hamidi says the majority of the people in Malaysia reject the politics of spontaneous gathering, for which majority does he speak for? PR represents the moral majority having won more popular votes that BN. BN was the legal winner, but PR was the moral winner.
What Zahid does, is speak as representative of the might-is-right cliques from UMNO and BN and their hangers-on chorus singing support groups. that was why he got knee jerk support from parasitic youth organizations and from the rent-seeker cliques represented by people like Tajudin Rahman.
These are the people who will readily subscribe to the idea that winning the legal victory confers an absolute license to do anything as they please. Down to the village level this means that benefits of development allocation are meant only for UMNO supporters. At the national level this means funding is only for BN lawmakers. Can we trust these people who don’t even understand the basic building blocks of nation building?
That nation building means nonpartisan management of the country. Once elections are over, the victors manage the country for the interest of both the victors and defeated. But the power crazy UMNO people do not understand this concept. The ignorant loyal ketua kampong thinks winning means he can suppress the people who didn’t vote UMNO. UMNO people think that this is a winner takes all game. They think winning confers them an absolute license to raid the piggy bank.
Opposition law makers are denied funding allocations whereas the money comes from the people. That is only acceptable IF the money comes from BN people, if taxes are collected only from BN people. Money comes from the people but the might-is-right cliques say, money is meant for them to do as they please.
Why did the majority reject UMNO and BN? The majority were the thinking crowd, the urban dwellers, more educated and more socially conscious. These are the people who really matters. These are the people with more earning power with whom engagement and appeasement are crucial for nation building and reconciliation.
That is the question that must be answered first rather than lending credence to the bigoted remarks of the Zul Nordins and the retired court of appeal judge who, as it turned out, himself the subject of hushed whispers pointing him out as being a sex fiend.
We have this former judge, Noor Mohd Abdullah warning the Chinese of a Malay backlash. Why? Because they didn’t vote UMNO candidates? What if they have voted other Malay candidates from PAS, PKR and DAP? The UMNO Malays are not the only Malays in this country.
Will they get a backlash with the judge playing the role of a hanging judge to a frenzied lynching mob? He thinks the Malays have got nothing better to do than do his command?
In so many places during GE13 the Chinese voted for Malay candidates of the Opposition together with their Malay brother Malaysians. See? Malaysian Chinese are supporting Malay candidates. So what to do with them? Drown these Chinese in the sea? Or does the judge regard the true Malay is the UMNO Malay and that all other Malays not in UMNO, not Malay enough? What a stupid jerk.
If the judge is a Malay-firster, then he would accord compliments to the Chinese who supported Malay candidates not matter what party the Malays represent. As long as he is Malay, that should be all right. And he must be ready to shower accolades on the Malaysian Chinese who rejected Chinese candidates from MCA and Gerakan mustn’t he? After all the Chinese in that instance have proven to be instrumental in furthering his final solution to race relations in Malaysia. If the judge’s overriding agenda is to see to the decimation of Chinese politics in Malaysia, he should cultivate goodwill with these Chinese. These are the facts, my dear judge.
The fact of the matter is, there was a Malay Tsunami. In peninsula Malaysia, out of the 9.45 million voters, Malay voters numbered around 6.62million. UMNO/BN obtained 4.35 million and Malay voters supporting UMNO candidates account for 3.05 million. The number of Malays who voted out UMNO was 3.6 million. What does that say? It says more Malays rejected UMNO. So what will Najib classify them as? Greedy Malays? Haramjadah?
Greedy for what? Malays still live in hovels. Malays need monetary help to send their parents and children for operation at hospitals. Malays need help from Jabatan Kebajikan masyarakat. When natural disasters strike Malays are always the first to beg help from government departments. Malays have their electricity cut off because they couldn’t pay the tariffs and don’t have money to pay reconnection charges. These Malays are greedy?
These Malays reject UMNO because they know UMNO is a farce- looking out for the interests of the select few, the pseudo feudal cliques, and the political elite. They have had enough of the hypocrisy of the UMNO leadership beginning with the greatest hypocrite of them all- Najib Tun Razak.
What have the Malays done?
To quote Walla:-
In GE13, Malays fought for the right way to do the right thing; they voted for righteousness and conscience; they voted against hypocrisy.
That hypocrisy is represented by Najib the rhetorical shouter of 1Malaysia who turns out to be a closet bigot. Najib now turns around and says the Chinese were the cause of BN’s loss of acceptance. He is lying; the Rakyat of Malaysia have moved on, looking at him only with pity for what someone has become just to save his own skin, the interests of his cronies, and a party that is the today the biggest international laughing stock of the democracies. He has only succeeded in self-syioking himself in his own state of denial. Continuing to be beholden to the biggest racist in the history of this nation, he doesn't have his own backbone, let alone the smallest brain and guts of a real leader. And on this, the rakyat are to place their innocent trust for another five years? How?
Must the greedy Malays feel ashamed for abandoning UMNO? They need not to because they are rejecting a corrupt party that serves the interests of the select few. They reject a party whose operatives infiltrate every level of the country’s management from the giving out of the lowliest of contracts to the monumental costing projects. They reject a party where its members who are contractors construct shoddy bus stops that cost the taxpayers RM40,000 each and built stadiums which keep on crumbling. They reject a party where its operatives in the form of village headmen steal land and allocate shares among family members and cronies firsts. They reject a party which has a present leader harbouring thieves and conmen as party members and making them out as representatives of the true Malay.
We the majority who rejected UMNO must feel revolted at being lectured into accepting the UMNO type of leaders. We, the majority Malays feel sickened at the thought of living alongside this bigoted former judge and other reactionary Malays materialising as apparitions in the likes of the Zul Nordins, the UITM Don and the Ibrahim Alis.
Where in UMNO's trillion ringgit administration is Islam and its principles practiced with honesty and sincerity? How does its upholding the faith sync with its racist stance against our Chinese brothers and sisters who seem to be still treated up till now half a century after Merdeka as pendatang-pendatang fit only to quaver and pay rent under the feet of Ketuanan Melayu exemplified by the new brown rajah's of post-colonial Malaysia?
For whom does Zahid Hamidi speak? He must be hallucinating from consumption of ketum leaves when he says the majority of Malaysians do not agree to post election rallies. Must we remind Herr Zahid that we are the majority? That is why Malaysia wears black all over the world. The Kelana Jaya gathering was a spontaneous response from voters that they knew Umno had defrauded them of true democracy. The gatherings across the nation and over the seas in other cities around the world will keep the torch burning. After all five years is not such a long time for a fake government to be booted out.
