UMNO cannot win as an army divided!

Does UMNO want to go into the battle field as an army divided?

It has just completed a gruelling UMNO General Assembly (UGA). The hotly contested post of Ketua Pemuda was won by Khairy Jamaludin, the former deputy head of UMNO youth. Seen from one context, the election of KJ is a reaffirmation of tradition where the number 2 is expected to succeed the number one.

The Ketua Puteri post was even more closely contested. But people seem to ignore this. Rosnah Sherlin was the number two. There was no money politics there? If there is none, this must be record. It's a rarity. The wanita ketua post was keenly fought for and we saw Rafidah Aziz was soundly beaten. Shahrizat was the number two. As for Rafidah, she is almost forgotten now. The iron lady has melted away.

But the fire that raged during the Pemuda contest has not simmered down. It hasn't been doused yet. Indeed, irresponsible people are still throwing fuel material at it hoping to achieve undemocratically what they couldn't through the democratic process.

After all, the election of KJ as is with the election of other office bearers across the board is a democratic process. Having made the bed, one must now lie on it. Do not blame the floor if you are an awkward dancer.

Unfortunately, this is what the virulent die hard anti KJ people are doing. I read that KJ has been accused as chickening out in discharging his responsibilities to head the UMNO youth in the 2 coming by-elections. These are to be held next week in Bukit Selambau and Bukit Gantang.

So people ask with undisguised cynicism, why is KJ chickening out from heading the PEMUDA team in these 2 bukits?

So when it comes to KJ, he has to do the extra mile to prove his worthiness right? In accusations of money politics, KJ has to prove his innocence beyond any reasonable/beyond any shadow of doubt but for others, they only need to measure up to a balance of probabilities. KJ has to go the extra mile to prove he is angelic.

This is hypocrisy on the part of so called UMNO true blue and supporters. The winners and losers in the recent UGA were selected through the same democratic process. The SAME. So how come when it boils down to winners we don't approve of, we are quick to accuse them of winning the post the evil way?

We can argue this matter until we are blue in the face. We conveniently forget that in all by elections, the director of operations is the number 2 in the organisation. It will be Muhyiddin Yassin, it will be Razali from Pemuda and the number 2 in Wanita and Puteri. In the case of Puteri, the leader has always liked to be in the forefront.

I can therefore ask the same question in the same manner by those who wish bad for UMNO.

  • Has Najib chicken out by assigning Muhyiddin?
  • Has Shahrizat chicken out by assigning Kamila?
  • Why won't Muhyiddin use these by elections to justify the explicit endorsement given him by our beloved TDM?
  • Why won't Najib use these 2 by-elections as an opportunity to vindicate himself?
  • Why won't Mukhriz prove that he is a loyal UMNO man.

UMNO seems to be catching the Arab Disease- they quarrel among themselves and bring their quarrels out in the battle fields. UMNO hasn't learnt from the Israelis. They quarrel vehemently among themselves, but when it comes to facing a common enemy, they go as a unified army.

Our common enemies are out there in Bukit Selambau and Bukit Gantang. I don't see UMNO there as the enemy. I don't see Pemuda UMNO as the unwanted bastard child. Do you?





Wah Al-Subangi 29 March 2009 at 09:09  

And now you are trying pre-empt KJ looking like a Si-Kitol, saying Najib chikening out and questioning loyalty of UMNO members in the highly probable event of UMNO losing the by-election. You can do better Dato..

Wah Al-Subangi 29 March 2009 at 09:21  

UMNO by electing KJ have already send a message loud n clear to the crucial, silent, majority VOTER-AT_THE-FRINGE how UMNO care for them.

You don't worry about the UMNO hardcore voters n don't u worry about the UMNO gurkha, they will soldier on even with a wounded commander esp after seeing the leadership and negarawan saf yang ampuh, well almost! on TV yesterday

But the lingering selumbar in UMNO's ass still remain, that got to be removed and rehabilitated.

Go and cari self-publisiti tempat lain laa.Semua orang tahu you datang nak argue di sini becos blog you tak laku! Come on.Don't try to be such a smart ass!Nak tumpang iklan diri?
Dato sak dont mind.But you are so boring!Promote yourself elsewhere man!

Anonymous,  29 March 2009 at 09:42  

I won't be surprised if Khairy would be found guilty of money politics and be stripped of his hard-won position. With Mahathir coming on board, it would be a foregone conclusion.

apa you tahu cerita di sebalik TDM hadhir dalam PAU?
jangan mahu membaca lebih dari itu. fakta nya KJ menang. tidak ada benda lain yang mesti kita buat selain dari sama sama mengukuhkan UMNO.
from the way you talked of TDM, can we infer that you are bengang dengan KJ because, sebetulnya, dalam pertandingan ketua pemuda ni, yang sebenarnya tewas ialah TDM? dan kamu semua tidak boleh terima idea bahawa TDM kalah?
as regards TDM, my respects for him are etched in stone. tapi saya bukanlah pengikut buta.

"UMNO hasn't learnt from the Israelis"

you are now adopting the 'children and women murderers' as your model??

Wah Al-Subangi 29 March 2009 at 09:54  

Sejak KJ naik ada law baru ke?

Last saya dengar cyberspace ni demokratik melainkan kalau saya diban oleh Dato Sak.

Dan saya bukan dalam biz jual blog nak kisah blog saya laku atau tidak

Anon 9:42,
I also do not put it past THE MAN to do so. But as Dato said, and 100% agree, KJ beat Tun and some ding dongs can't accept it.

However, I think some other big thing is looming on the horizon. Its way bigger than UMNO or Pakatan. Its about the future of money as we know it, I am investigating.

Btw Dato, just out of curiosity, any comments on 'quantitative easing.' Does the BNM adopt the same policy to fund our soon to be announced record 470 b budget. ( there will seem to be a lot of hungry mouths to feed.)

Wah Al-Subangi 29 March 2009 at 10:07  

Really Wenger? That would productive n a refreshing change rather than keep seeing feeble defensive post on KJ keeps popping out. I began to wonder is there really a need?

Ariff Sabri 29 March 2009 at 10:10  

the last time i (mis) quoated LKY, you said i am a LKY lover. the quote is by Churchill by the way as corrected by E theorist.

now, as regards containing the quarrel among us only, i made a reference to the Israelis you are accusing of another thing?
are you OK upstairs?

Wah A.M.
Engkau tahu aku bukan maksudkan bab jual blog.Orang tak minat baca blog engkau engkau datang bertubi2 masuk blog Dato sak nak promote diri! Woi! What an asshole!Nak tunjuk pandai sangat argue weh!

Anonymous,  29 March 2009 at 10:57  


Your dumb as an idiot and you know it.

I won't bother explaining what Dato meant because you know exactly what he meant.

People like you appeal to the Lowest Common Denominator of intelligence. Dato's blog is not meant for people like you. All your comments have the IQ of a pea brain.

And to WAM, you say I post a feeble story. Well, if KJ is such a feeble candidate, and all the stories those who support him are so feeble, then what does it make DM and KT look like when they lost to such a feeble candidate.

Whats it with you lot. Before you learn how to win, you must learn how to lose. Even that you cannot do with any grace.

KJ! Rasuah! KJ! Rasuah! KJ! Rasuah! KJ! Rasuah! KJ! Rasuah!,  29 March 2009 at 13:42  


Go wank your dickens at your own unpopular blog or close that stupid blog.

Sak does not need a wanker to do his fighting.

Are you a paid apologist who got to defend KJ at every comment?

Khairy and his crazy idea of democrasy?

KJ! Rasuah! KJ! Rasuah! KJ! Rasuah! KJ! Rasuah! KJ! Rasuah!

PAS, PKR and DAP are political rival.

KJ is a national security threat. He, his supporters and sympathisers should be exterminated to smitterins.

Senang cerita, cara nak mengukuhkan umno ialah utk korang semua stop criticising the othet faction continuously even after UGA is over.
It is natural that the other faction (and you can be certaon that is is the bigger one) would feel devastated.
Tapi setiap hari korang stoke fire. Bertambah bengang la. Dah menang, tapi rubbing salt to the wound some.
Takleh ke korang yg pro corruption ni take the higher road and offer some motivation.
Ni tak, masih nak kutuk lg. I don't know abt khir toyo but mm right after the result did tell his supporters to bertenang dan accept the winner.
Tapi artikel ni masih nak mengapi apikan, mengecil kecilkan mm. Macamana korang nak harap penyokong mm atau kt nak kautim dgn kj?
Takde akal ke?
Nak suruh rapatkan barisan, tp masa yg sama kutuk semua org.
Masih nak mengagung agungkan kj tahap maksima.
Lagi la org meluat. Apa bendanya ni? Sblm menang, org ckp kj tu berkaliber dan bagus. Tp sudah 5 hari menang, yg nampak cuma dia bagus nak delegate tanggungjawab dia.
Kita tgk camana dia nak hadapi pembangkang. Dulu time dia jd director of operations pemuda, dia kalah di pp dan kt.
Harap kj tahu apa nak buat sekarang dan ajar RI camana nak menangkan 3 prk nanti.
Dlm masa itu, pro kj patut jgn jadi 'in the face' sgt. Kalau tak, mmglah pemuda bwh kj tak dpt kerjasama dari semua ahlinya.

I don’t see why we should keep on arguing among ourselves. If I have even the tiniest of capacity I will use it to contribute to this nation for a better bangsa, agama dan Negara. There are things that ideas can do and there are things that only money can do.

Maybe Dato Sak has the ideas and Wenger has the money.
The rest of us have only our hearts, so please have a good heart.

Why are you all arguing about KJ winning in a democratic election? He is entitle to stand and won. So are the rest that won. Kalau nak argue sampai bila tak habis. You all memang typical Melayu yang sibuk tak bertempat.

anaklangkawi 29 March 2009 at 15:29  

Whatever it is.
I can see in the faces of all the delegates that they will unite to face the war with a strong army..

& i believe Mukhriz & khir supporter were matured enough to stand & unite for the sake of UMNO..

The by elections should not be the yardstick of Umno's will be a long haul but the pieces are in place..and with DS Najib and his able sidekicks in full throttle I would reckon that the PR will be exposed ;with only PAS left standing on the nationwide platform.
Keadilan will be seen in its true dimension..warts and all.And DAP will be left holding the bag in a deterioration of Penang's economic struggles.
Umno cares....

Wah Al-Subangi 29 March 2009 at 16:21  

anak langkawi,

that's my impression too..

but few of dato sak recent post seems to imply kj need justification for anything that happen related to the party after the GA. hmm.. i wonder why?

I dont know who you are but your piece is too shallow. You seem very lacking in politics.

Answer me, why Ali Rustam is forbidden from contest while KJ can, albeit both are wronged and guilty?

Answer me professionally.

I agree with u.With TDm in Kj might be found guilty and stripped of his position so that way can be worked out to bring up MM.But KJ might retaliate.A friend of mine told me that KJ inherit A Military Inteligent Report from his FIL regarding some high profil case.True or not only GOD knows.If he has that as claimed then the country leader has big headache ahead.
Are u a Singh an UMNO member ?Well ur prediction about the Pakatan cOmponent Party DAP,PAS will become stronger as days and years past by.and ur prediction 1000% goes reverse and happened to BN.

Dear readers and Dato' Sak,

I'm not a fan of KJ but I wish we stop all the fight among us.

We should move on and start working hard. Nothing else.

Yes, for those who support KJ because they indebted him - especially financially, they're the worst.

As worst as ANY of you here who support ANY candidate because of some money you got, or some project you owed.

The truth will never pick sides.

Good people, without good steategy, will still loose.

Next assembly, 60,000 people will have the opportunity to vote. So, work hard so that you can be among of them from now!

Don't let KJ put his men all over that too, if you really hate him.

Jangan berkokok di luar gelanggang.

Anonymous,  30 March 2009 at 21:45  

Dear ***** Mind,

You opened by saying we should stop the fight amongst us. Within the same breath you went berserk again over KJ.

You have just insulted the Malay mind. What are you ...nuts? Please don't use MalayMind to identify yourself. It is an insult.
