The economic agenda of MPM and Mukkriz’s mea culpa


If someone were to ask me- what do you think of the round table discussion sponsored by the Malay Consultative Council (MCC) I will answer as follows.
I did not attend that forum although I did get an invitation to go there. I was gladly spared the preaching of Ibrahim Ali and the sleep inducing drone of Mukhriz Mahathir. I have read the statements of the gadfly from Pasir Mas- Ibrahim 'Stopa' Ali( he is also known as stopa among his local supporters) and also the bloody hazy but almost sounding meaningful noises from MUkhriz Mahathir.
I suddenly realised this. Between the posturing of Ibrahim Ali and his MCC and the clueless MUkhriz , the whole shebang about fearing or hoping for Malay economic salvation is just hot air and a blatant excuse for some special Malays to make more money. Yes sir- it's all just an excuse for some people to make money and to ensure the way to make money stays there in the NEM.
Ibrahim Ali can continue making money for championing Malay economic interests. He can build more bridges, have money to send people for Haj or Umrah, he can get more land from Menteri Besars etc. People like MUkhriz Mahathir can also continue making more money fighting the imaginary dragons that are coming after the holy economic interests of the Puteras. If you look at his Fibre Optic business- his is probably the only Malay name of significance there and his brother's Kencana Petroleum or whatever, is just another Chinese moneyed company.
We are fooled people.
Hold on- before you readers say- you are denouncing Mukhriz because you are a supporter of KJ. Allow me to quickly say that KJ is quickly building up frustrations and disillusionment among his supporters. Young Man- stop mollycoddling the human apparition called Dhalkari. His master is Mukhriz still. Our advice to him is stop uncleToming around.
He must live up to his vocation as the real ketua Pemuda UMNO- the voice of conscience of UMNO- not the voice of the mindless herd. He must live up to what he represents- the possibilities of the nameless average Joes in UMNO. His victory in the Ketua Pemuda race previously showed to the world, that you can succeed without having to carry the name of bin Tun Razak, bin Hussien Onn or bin Mahathir. Anyone with above average intelligence can succeed in UMNO. He has proven that and must live up to that symbolism of opportunity. And remember, it was the Ketua Pemuda who decided the outcome of the contest between Dr Mahathir and Tengku Razaleigh in 1987.
But first:-
Allow me first to elaborate on what I think has become a standard operating procedure by UMNO people and their soul mates outside. Let's start by stating that Ibrahim Ali is UMNO in its worse form. Let's talk about the way they force things in their favour.
When a few churches were burnt to the ground, we didn't see any riotous response. There may be a number of reasons why that is so. Maybe its Christian teachings- I don't know which. Maybe, because PM Najib handled it the way he thinks is the best way- give money to burnt churches. We saw young Christians offering flowers to people in the streets, something strange in a Muslim dominated country.
We did not reach that calamitous level of church burnings, we can already see the different manner of reactions. Any hint at all of some impairment to the much worshipped concept of Malay dominance is likely to result in near mutinous reaction.
It has been a number of months, since PM Najib started dismantling some of what he thinks are impediments to greater competition. He has liberalised some subsectors in the service industry. In one of my articles, I have pointed out that these subsectors are of no consequence to Malay economic interests as Malay participation in those is very minimal to start with. As early as that time, Ibrahim Ali regarded that move as a challenge and threat to Malay economic interest. Inadvertently he was saying- PM Najib isn't Malay enough.
Even then, Malay groups were agitated. UMNO hawks are also seething over the abolishment of a Ministry which was tasked at looking at Malay economic interests. In effect, they were looking at the economic interests of special Bumputeras only. The abolishment of that ministry is therefore sacrilegious.
People like Ibrahim Ali responded the only way he knows best- carry out some form of riotous actions. Go to Penang, herd all those impoverished traders who were impoverished since Gerakan time with collusion from UMNO Penang. Demonstrate here and there. Create anarchy where possible. Cow the government into submission.
So UMNO some in a prized cattle or sow.
If we were to study the statements given by Ibrahim 'Stopa' Ali and the convoluted ideas of Mukhriz Mahathir, we wonder actually what the round table on the NEM is all about. Ibrahim Ali is at least true to form- he wants the NEM to reflect the dominant and overriding interest of Malays. By Malays he meant the puteras in the Bumi. Hence article 153 should be read into every economic measure taken by the government.
But Mukhriz? We don't know what his message is. No the NEM does not sideline the NEP. Maybe the MPM is misunderstood. Hello, Minister- the MPM is pressing for more intense affirmative strategies- something you should be criticizing unequivocally as they are rejecting the dismantling of the economy. MUkhriz is more interested in not offending the MPM as they have a large Malay membership. MUkhriz was careful not to jeopardize a potential support base. So he does what a generic politician will do- hunt with the dogs and run with the hare.
Its time all Malays see the real agenda of the economic measures insisted upon by MPM and the new measures that are waiting to be announced. They are actually two sides of the same coin- the same coin representing an excuse for privileged Malays to make more money.

Dato Sak,
Ibrahim Ali has no place to go, no party to hang on to since PAS will not accept him anymore and UMNO is reluctant to accept him again. He is just using PERKASA to stay afloat and be in the limelight and be relevant to UMNO to consider himself to be of some use.
Of course he has to make sure that his supply of money will not dry up and thus the necessity to tie up with MUkhriz and his dad TDM.
Come next GE, Ibrahim will lose his seat but even losing his seat will not silence this King of Frogs.

Dato,

This is the enemy within I was referring to. This is the red herring many Malays will be fooled by. They are only interested in their rights and not the kampong folks.

I think the Govt should come clean with extensive, clear statistics and analysis on the economic position of the Malays AND Others in 1969 and the progress achieved since then by the NEP.

That will give us a means of judging what new measures are necessary or not and how much is required to be done so that everyone enjoys a fair share of the country's wealth.

Few in M'sia argue against affirmative action to establish a level playing field; it's a question of what is reasonable so there is no abuse of it.

After all, that's what Art.153 of our Constitution says on the special position of the Malays vis-a-vis others as regards jobs, education, scholarships etc.; that REASONABLE action be taken!

Salam Dato Sak,

Apo lagi nok dikato, Iberahi Stoopa Ali and Mooky at his usual elements.

Its norm what yang ber-bin biasa bukan nama glamour cam tun hussein on or mahathir, mana boleh tegur dia, kita kan biasa blogger "monyet"

KJ is living in a very thin line - tu pon tak reti bahasa lagi. Belajar tinggi² politik cam tahap kampung. Maya Karin is about to get a divorce, why dont KJ focus on that rather than co-organise all this crap i.e. Ozzy protest Anwar should not be Pee M , etc


Have you heard about Brader Anwar lastnight attempt to revise Kg.Baru? seriously BOSAN lah Dato

Please someone shoot/ throw some selipar to all this faggot.

Laaa... kenapa u tak pegi?

Tak baik bising bising pasal benda yg u takde kat situ nak contribute.

Bukannya depa tak ajak u.

Sekurang2nya, u boleh la bagi sikit bahan utk merekayasakan ekonomi melayu.

Setakat berkokok pasal benda yg u tak nak join, mmg tak sedap mata nak baca.

Nampak mcm hipokrit dan anggur masam.

Lain lah kalau u datang, dan dah berusaha nak mengubah diorang kat sana. Barulah boleh komplen.

it shows that the UMNO people are just using Malays to get support. but in their companies they do not give gave the malays to helm them with positions.

Salam Bro…….

A matter of expression: KJ do not carry this bin or that bin but he carried via bin. Through it he did his waggling, haggling nemesis. Worst of its kind here walk the Mantan Ketua Pemuda, agreeing, denying, condoning on his behalf too set a proper track walking tall to the Prime Minister’s office. So they all walk hand-in-hand one this bin, one the other bin and the via bin. It’s true to the marrow we are all dam fool generally and an outrageous fool are the members. So, how are we to resolve this patent of control of this Son to another that Son and my Son-in-Law. Personally speaking what POL POT did in recreating society in his own epiphany was revamping those minds of spoiled culture.

Are the Malays ready for another REvolusi Mental or New version of Revolusi Mentel. The former written by Senu Abdul Rahman the later by the commune just like the written law and the unwritten law or Rome without an army but they conquered vast land with an unknown army.

Thank for musing in your space again.

hello brother, you missed your chance to have your voice heard at the forum because of the fandango twins of dumb and dumber being the mainstay speakers...you could have stirred a hornets nest if you were there..and this will actually liven up the place..instead you chose to sit behind a computer and blog your thoughts...where is this talk that you have been saying about standing and being counted? the culture of volunterism? the forum was a platform for you to be heard and for you to be noticed...sit behind tha laptop all you want...good luck

Article 153 may not be able to build a strong economy. But I am certain that a strong economy will be able to sustain that Article until its goals are achieved. A shrewed government will therefore spend its time strengthening the economy and then worry about how you are going to spend.

It very similar to saying that money cannot buy happiness. But you are only supposed to say that after you have made enough money. Ramals

More racist remarks from Perkasa today.Is it IMalaysia or Damm!Malaysia.I am afraid for my country with the likes of the people in perkasa being allowed free rein to say what they want, when they want and to whom they want.As a Christian, I pray for my country whenever it undergoes trials.Today, more than ever, I am convinced that Malaysia needs divine intervention to rescue us from the path of destruction some people are so intent on setting us on.

This only the beginning of many salvos these idiots would be spewing.

They know they can blare to their last breath, they are immune because we all know why.

So long as this remain to be so, sorry we are going down the ever faster path of destruction and the only one advocating it is this organisation.

More to come .. get prepared until they expect the non Malays to fight back. No non Malays fight back with their feet and brains. They go to where they are welcomed

Let see who wins in the end.

I remember reading an article by Malaysia today, in Acheh where they chased out the Chinese and another village protected them. Today the village that is devoid of Chinese are sending maids to Malaysia to work while the other has a vibrant economy with full employment.

Make this nationwide.. we see what happens.

Yes, we Chinese react with our feet and brains and let see who win in the end. We just watch, smile and move away.

Yes, you burn our churches we give you flowers..

Assalamualaikum Dato'.

Sebenarnya tak ada banyak beza antara Muhkriz dengan KJ.

Dato' kata KJ menang jawatan Ketua Pemuda tanpa perlu berbinkan 'Mahathir', 'Abdul Razak' ataupun 'Hussein Onn'. Tapi Dato' jangan lupa, pada tahun 2004 dia menang jawatan Naib Ketua semata-mata kerana dia menantu Perdana Menteri. Ramai orang yg menawarkan diri pada masa itu tarik diri tanpa sebab2 yg munasabah. Dan dia menang sebagai Ketua Pemuda bukanlah kerana dia ada 'above average intelligence' yg dikagumi oleh pemuda-pemuda UMNO. Dia menang sebab 'setiakawan'. 'Setiakawan' daripada Ketua-ketua Pemuda Bahagian yang pernah dpt kontrak Kementerian Pelajaran dan sebagainya daripada dia semasa zaman pemerintahan Pak Lah dulu. Janganlah Dato' kata yg Dato' tak tahu menahu ttg perkara ini. Tak percaya Dato' pergi siasat latar belakang Ketua Pemuda UMNO Pahang sekarang.

Muhkriz memanglah bukan hebat sgt. Dia menang di Jerlun kerana bapanya turun berkempen habis-habisan bagi memastikan kemenangannya. Tapi kalau nak banding antara kemenangan Mukhriz di Jerlun dengan Khairy di Rembau, saya berpendapat mulia lagilah Muhkriz. Khairy diletak bertanding di Rembau, kawasan yg majoriti penduduknya akan pangkah calon BN tak kira siapa pun orangnya, duit yg melimpah ruah diberi oleh bapa mertuanya, di samping mendapat pula sokongan dan liputan meluas media pada masa itu, tetapi dia tetap cuma menang dengan majoriti yg rendah daripada calon BN sebelumnya. Muhkriz dihantar ke Jerlun utk 'dibunuh', politik UMNO di Jerlun pula tak pernah stabil dan media pula tak pernah beri sebarang tempat pada dia dan bapanya pada masa itu. Tapi dia tetap berjaya menang dan majoritinya meningkat.

Saya rasa Khairy pun akan bantah model ekonomi baru yg dicadangkan oleh Dato Najib itu. Tanpa budaya patronage dia tak mungkin dpt sokongan drpd pemuda2 UMNO. Kerana dia berjaya mengayakan pemuda2 di zaman pemerintahan Pak Lah, dia dapat kawan-kawan yg ada semangat 'setiakawan'.

Saya lihat Dato' sentiasa kutuk Muhriz sebagai org yg keluarkan kenyataan2 yg tak bernas, bodoh, tak disokong fakta dan sebagainya. Cuba Dato' tengok semua kenyataan2 KJ, takkan tak ada langsung kenyataan bodoh yg pernah dikeluarkan olehnya? Kalau Dato' cari mesti ada punya. Tapi fasal Dato' memang tak mahu cari sebab itu tak jumpa.

Dan akhirnya kalau Mukhriz ada Parpukari, KJ juga ada Wenger dan tak lupa Dato' Sakmongkol sendiri. Jadi mana ada bezanya?

Maaf sebab komen banyak sangat. Terima kasih.
