What Ails Umno? Saving Umno. Part 2

1. When I wrote several articles about umno, a friend texted me to say:- Brother don't bother about umno,let it be self extinct. Those were his words which I quoted verbatim.

2. I wrote those articles because I felt that an analysis of the umno conundrum requires a detached and an objective thinking.

3. Having been an adun and an mp, Umno and DAP, I feel a little qualified to present my thoughts on the subject. Forgive the titles dropping.

4. Hence, my debatable thoughts on the subject can be contrasted with some submissive articles written by some journalists hiding behind a big name social media organisation.

5. That way, readers can make an informed judgment on the umno debacle. To accept my frank opinion or to give credit to that unthinking journalist. I can live with my own limitations.

6. Recent events have fortified my belief that it requires a radical and an out-of-the-box thinking to avoid umno from reaching the end it wishes to avoid-destruction and demise.

7. An atrophied thinking and an inclination for business as usual attitude will likely lead umno to self-destruct and meet its demise. It will end that way, all because of the umno majority refusing to adopt a radical thinking.

8. That refusal to think outside the box, reflects in general, the umno majority's laziness to think and their fixation to mediocrity. Those are the hallmarks of the umno hoi poloi. Nak buek camno.

9. One manifestation of the want a 'business as usual' regime, the group mental rigor mortis and a don't rock the boat attitude, to retain an obsolete arrangement is the persistent and stubborn wish to let the leadership of umno go to ayam den lapih man, Mat Hassan.

10. Now, don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the man. He seems a nice fellow, saner than most others. As usual umno people puts a premium on conserving an obsolete tradition and always value aesthetics over substance. Plus they get mesmerised over his minang ascent. Apa kono eh jang?

11. What umno needs now is a leadership that can deliver, not a nice fellow. If you want that, go to the mosque or musalla. Even that is no guarantee. You may get groped or even worse -sodomised by the holy dick. Bless you my child!

12. My contention, is that this joker in the pack is cut from the same cloth as the previous reactionary umno leaders. He will likely continue the same unchecked rule.

13. The mangkuk is just the same wine in a new bottle. His enforced silence may be a sign of dimwittedness and we may rue the consequences in choosing the biso bona man.

14. I was horrified to hear an umno senior leader say in effect he and his colleages are indispensable. This innocent statement has got many ramifications.

15. First of all fool, no one is indispensable. Any umno fellow with above average intelligence can do their work as good as them or better. It's their conceit that undo them.

16. Its both disingenuous and duplicitous to say that because you are appointed a minister, you have a duty to do your job. For the umno renegades, that duty cannot override the duty owed to the umno people. That excuse is just akin to trying to erect a wet thread.

17. The umno people have spoken: sever all ties with PN. Translated, it means the umno renegades must leave Muhyi's government. No ifs and buts. Why be part of an illegitimate government and continue issuing inane and illegitimate policies?

18. If the umno traitors/shitheads continue to defy, deny and lie to the umno body politic, it is due to their general hubris and high class mentality. Then the umno people need to exercise their call-out culture-ostracise them like you do to lepers.

19. Bringing these mothereffers to their senses is nothing new to the umno people. They are so used in bringing down clever people to their own level of common stupidity. So why not bring these undemocratic blokes to their own level of pedestrian democracy? What ever that means because to umno people,.democracy can mean anything at the spur of the moment.

20. In part 3 we shall ask like Lenin did, what is to be done.

What Ails Umno. Part 1.

1. In 1924 the Malay writer Zaaba, said the distinguishing feature of the Malays that crushes the pulse of all, is their poverty.

2. He wasn't just talking about conventional economic poverty. He was talking about all round poverty or abject poverty-poverty of behaviour, of work ethics, poverty of the tools that enrich the mind.

3. Thus, they become a servile people, kowtowing like the Indian thamby inhibited or tak lepas laku, terkernying-kernying.

4. It was an emblem of national shame not thought of by the Malay leaders. The archaic Malay rulers sat arm folded contented to rule over a self belittling people and servile majority.

5. Tun Razak had a notion about this. He wrote about it as a student in MCGaygay. But then Tun Razak grew up in a proletarian society. Unfortunately he didn't have time to rectify the problem. He passed away too early.

6. The straight as a ramrod Hussein Onn was happy to manage what he suddenly inherited meticulously. The rot actually began with Nana Mahathir. He had a penchant for picking winners and creating monopolies. Most of the anointed winners he picked, failed. Of course Abdullah Badawi slept throughout. Najib didn't give a damn as long as he could skim. Najib once said to me there's nothing the Malays like than to receive freebies. And later he said the infamous cash is king. And dumb as he looks, Muhyiddin is letting go of everything with wanton abandon probably as he does when with Nika Gee.

7. After 60 years of umno rule why have we not been able to liberate ourselves from the vicious straight jacket? We remained more or less the same little people?

8. As I said, Tun Razak had a notion of the destiny of the Malays. He could have done more if not because of his untimely passing. But my wicked side refused to dwell too much of his good deeds. Let others do it.

9. To me the true revolutioner was Ghafar Baba. When Mahathir balked at going the full nine yards in curbing the excesses of the Malay royalty, Ghafar vowed to challenge Mahathir all out. Mahathir was actually a closet neo feudalist and a compradore running dog.

10. Mahathir was just posturing, actually. He was using the proposed constitutional changes to Parley. He wasn't intending to do real changes. So why should believe a nana who regards everything is just a game?

11. I don't see the excesses and the unconstitutional intransigences of the royalty being curbed but in fact accentuated. So what Mahathir proposed were just BS and the people continued to be played out and laughed at. It's all heaty chicken shit.

12. So what's keeping the Malays more or less in the vicious circle of general backwardness which Zaaba and Tun Razak averred to?

13. I think Zaaba hinted at the reasons why. But the main reason, he said, was the repressive and suppressive rule of the Malay elites. They were more interested in instant gratification. They were also decadent and vision-less.

14. The ruling elites had no notions at all about the rights of the common men. The latter existed to serve the former only. One century earlier than Zaaba, Munsyi Abdullah would write about marauding Malay chiefs and their goons going around villages and townships, brandishing weapons ready to kill the common people.

15. The subservient and slave like role of the common people was always glorified and regarded as, a virtue. Heck, Hang Tuah dived into a shit pit to retrieve an item for the slaving Sultan.

16. Tun Razak on the other hand was not interested in finding the cause. He was more interested to find the solutions. As I said earlier he died too early.

17. Zaaba was able to write from his perspective because he came from the marhaen class. Tun Razak could not be expected to write against his own class, could he? No mystery about that.

18. But to those who want to place Tun Razak in high esteem and exalt him, please do so. I have no problems with that. Ideologically I am more in tune with Zaaba. Its just that.

19. That's why I gritted my teeth when an umno leader said that umnos Weltanschauung is to defend its infamous 3Rs-race, religion and royalty. I don't know these are under threat. Against who and what?

20. It's their own kind that victimizes them. Zaaba was essentially correct when he said the worst enemy of the Malays was the leadership. Malays became like what an African proverb says-the sheep worry every moment about the wolf, when eventually it's the shepherd who eats them. The Malay leaders are like the axe but because the handle is made of wood they convinced the trees they are one of them.

21. Let me speak with candor. The reactionary umno leaders caused umnos defeat after 60 years. They are more interested in preserving their own privileged life than elevating the people's welfare. Plus they have no vision about where to bring the people.
They screwed the whole thing up, now it's our turn to screw them up. Don't get sentimental of them. Its just business. Umno people must not forget that 1 of 7 Malays is umno. There are more non umno Malays than umno men. Think about them. And only 1 of 11 people is umno.

22. Hence, like Zaaba opined in 1926, it's the wrong brand of umnos leadership that's damaging umno. The umno people must adapt or perish. Remember the Quran says if the community don't change what's within them, they will self desruct. Demand the previous leadership resign en bloc . No effing excuses!

23. In part 2, I will discuss the 'Big Lie' perpetuated by the defunct umno leaders.

The Man Most Fit To Lead Umno And The Country.

1. One advice Machiavelli gave to nice people "learn from the tyrants". That is not to become tyrants but to learn their methods. For the sad truth in politics is, bad people end up first while nice people end up last. The choice is yours:want your 5-minute fame or want to last as long as you want.

2. That's what happened to Mr nice guy Tengku Razaleigh. Unaccustomed to rough methods and being too refined, he's fodder to stupid umno people- the rough and tumble village people.

3. Hence, the one time number 1 person at the World Bank, the underpaid chairman of petronas, Pernas, Bbmb, the country's economic czar is sidelined. Instead, the umno Malays idolise and celebrate the cobra mafia, the clique of mediocre people. The grade 'c' eggs

4. By the twisted logic of the malleable umno hoi poloi, the nice people are brushed aside and the umno cobra mafia is elevated to prominence. The people like the grinning 'ow' minister, the going nowhere KJ, Anuar Musa, Tajuddin, blur Zahid et al.

5. The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves that we are underlings.

6. In more modern language, its like what Michael Porter says. If you demand mediocrity you get mediocrity. If you demand excellence you structure what you desire accordingly. Under the present circumstances, it seems the umno hoi poloi has a death wish:- wanting to see umno implode under the leadership of the cobra mafia which is at once toxic and venomous.

7. Therefore, if the umno majority thinks rationaly and business like, wanting to save umno and lead the country-theres only one person most fit to lead umno. And that person is Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.

8. I am not coy in naming Tengku Razaleigh as the person most fit. He has charisma, well known and can transform the country. He has the vision, resolve and drive to put things right. The others are just making politically right and populist noises. Plus there is a certain fellow offering us nothing but demagoguery. Which takes us nowhere.

9. Mind you, I am not talking as a dyed in the wool umno member but as a DAP man. And I can confidently tell you the chief difference between the two parties.

10. The chief difference as I see it is, that while DAP celebrates excellence, umno celebrates mediocrity. That's why the loudmouths and drum beaters are given prominence in umno. My own thinking may not be shared by the DAP denizens, but in the name of excellence I have no hesitation in naming Tengku Razaleigh as the best of the crop.

11. Beside having all the required qualities, Tengku Razaleigh is royalty himself. He is old enough to tell off wayward royals what Constitutional Monarchy means.

12. The undisputed reality is that umno is a mass based party. This fact seems to be forgotten by the cobra mafia. The person best able to interpret the needs of Malays and Malaysians is the most fit to lead Malaysia. And I believed the person most able is Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah. He is one of us with no pretensions. Why do I get the impression that someone who says the Chinese, Indians, the ibans etc are his children is just faking it?

13. Because it's a mass based party it requires a person with the vision, drive, discipline and above all places the welfare of the people above all.

14. When he created bonded areas for car importers and only after cabinet insistence, that he took a remuneration of RM4000 as petronas charman-these showed he places the common good above all else. And he is a selfless person. When he was willing to talk about oil royalty for Kelantan that shows he is motivated by a strong sense of fair play. When he was willing to resign after losing the umno elections, that shows he is a man of principles.

15. Can we expect that from Mr Anus of ketereh, Mr Ontop of sembrong, Mr Herpes of rembau Mrs tightfit and Mrs klitoris, and Mr Aimedik from bera? Meanwhile, Mr Arsebandit is waiting in the wings fueling his ambitions.

16. Doesn't the umno hoi poloi feel guilty about ditching a good man? Isn't saving umno the top priority? Didn't Mr Maiprrik from Bagan Datoh says that a good seed thrown into the wide ocean becomes an island?

17. Umnos forgetfulness in this aspect can only be explained by the intense indoctrination and brainwashing by the umno cobra mafia. So as the late poet 'komrad' Kassim Ahmad says-for so long we die because of loyalty, now we live in rebellion.

18. Umno needs a person with stout courage to do two things. One is to put umno on its right footing and two, to clean up the government machinery. Of all the qualities demanded of a leader, courage says Winston Churchill is the most important.

19. Umno is a mass based party, in essence a revolutionary party, parti orang kampung says Musa Hitam-Tengku Razaleigh must give meaning to the term

20. Giving meaning to the term must mean to correctly interpret and give direction to the will of the people.

21. It's impossible to think that the people are so forgiving and do not seek some redress. The transition of one government to the next cannot be so orderly and smooth. All the leaders of the outgoing government must be brought into account. There's no democracy without accountability.

22. It seems to me that it's insufficient for Tengku Razaleigh to use household cleaning detergent but also needs industrial detergent to clean up the government. He has to clean up the civil service, the judiciary, the police, the GLCs etc. Previous PMs and the prima donnas mentioned in 15,.are only content to continue the pillage and plunder. None have the courage.

23. Tengku Razaleigh is not perfect but he has the courage, none of the failings of previous PMs and none of the character flaws of the clowns mentioned in para 15.

24. Finally, let me answer one off-putting question. What can one person like ku li do?

25. First he will surround himself with people who share his vision. Two, if you think one person cannot make a difference-think of what one rouge Najib does to our country. Think also of what one inept Mahiadin does to our beloved nation? Therefore, one person like Ku Li and people who share his vision can make a difference.

26. So my dear umno brothers and sisters, please think rationally who is most fit to lead umno and the country. Without a doubt that person is Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.

27. In part 3 I will try to outline what ails umno. Its up to you to accept my analysis.

The person most fit to lead Malaysia. Part 1.

1. When Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah says tongue in cheek, that he has all the qualities to be elected as PM he's not being braggadocios.

2. He's saying it as a matter-of-factly because nowadays, that is the language people understand. Direct language is the language of choice especially when inundated with the convoluted language of Zaid. Zaid, the man with weak leadership and low level brain IQ.

3. But some envious umno people, don't you roll on the floor tearing your hair yes. Especially that asshole from Ketereh, the purveyor of piffle. Read the statement from Ku Li carefully.

4. Ku Li said he has all the qualities to be PM but won't be because (a) his own party, umno does not support him and (b) possibly he is supported by the opposition.

5. These two statements reveal a lot about the political parties. Allow me to expand.

6. I know a thing or two about the umno culture. From 1990 to end December 2011, 1 was with umno. I was an ADUN under umno.

7. From 8th January 2012 to now I am a DAP member. Under DAP I was the MP for Raub from 2013-2018. Therefore, I am qualified to say about the political cultures of both parties.

8. So, not to sound bragging about it, I think I am qualified to talk about the thinking of both parties.

9. What is urgently required of umno is thinking what is good for business. What is good for business is a complete break with dumbing conformity.

10. The first thing to do is to abandon thinking in terms of preserving the hierarchical set up and archaic traditions in umno. If their preservation leads to the destruction of umno. Its adapt or perish.

11. Its so objectionable the suggestion by umnos Rottweiler, oberleutenant Nazri Aziz to just pass the leadership of umno to another reactioner, Mat Hassan.

12. That chap is cut from the same cloth as plunderer Najib and clueless Zahid, that choosing him will only serve to perpetuate the leadership of despotic leaders beginning with the scheming Tun Razak, Mamu Mahathir, thieving Najib and blur Zahid.

13. The same antiquated idea is echoed by an imbecilic umno youth leader from Kelantan. This is worrying coming from the younger generation. It shows the rot of umno has gone to the core. And the upper echelons have not bothered to correct the anomaly.

14. This shows that the indoctrination by umnos cobra mafia has gone on for so long unarrested. It has resulted in the umno brethren to move in lock-step towards destruction and umnos eventual demise.

15. I tell you dear umno brothers, that the way to save umno is the removal of the umno cobra mafia. Don't be sentimental about them. Nothing personal its just business. The replacement of one set of leadership is not like going to a dinner party or doing embroidery or eating mee abu or pasembor in Pulau Pining. It cannot be so refined and orderly. It must be violent by nature.

16. In order to stay relevant umno must get rid of the evil trinity of race, religion and royalty. Its racism is based on irrational paranoia. Its religion is used to hold people back. Umnos defence of the royalty aside from mobilising unquestioning loyalty, is to masquerade the intention of umnos cobra mafia wanting to be the new royalty. Weren't it some cobra mafia suggesting tying up the Malay royalty and letting swarming weaver ants stinging them?

17. We come now to the question of who is most fit to lead umno and save the country? It is obvious that the person most fit must have the vision, resolve, personal discipline and wherewithal to manage the country. These are more important qualities than having charisma and being well known.

18. Musa hitam for instance, thinks that the person most fit to lead Malaysia is Anwar Ibrahim. Because he has charisma and is well known. The thinking is so 1960ish and 1970ish. Although well known can now arguably be replaced with notoriety.

19. Now, Tun Musa Hitam is my friend and is a fan of my blog. But I won't use kids gloves in dealing with his erroneous ideas. I will use bare knukcles. If after this he ceases to be both, its no skin off my nose. Like James Carville said it's the economy stupid! And I will add its good governance dumbkoff!

20. Of course, it's not a sin for Anwar to have an ambition to be PM, but it is equally not a sin if people refuse to acquiesce in that ambition.

21. In part 2 I will outline the qualities of the person most fit to lead Malaysia. And say who is in my mind.
