PKR’s Anwar Ibrahim got 31,195 votes, BN’s Arif Shah Omar Shah, 15,524, AKIM’s Hanafi Hamat, 92. Anwar won with a majority of 15,671.

Everyone’s offering their two cents worth of why UMNO failed in the recent Permatang Pauh by-election on August 26. So, this is mine. Since the media quotes big names, let me just tell you what the locals actually  shared with me about this mother of all by-elections:

1) Do NOT SWEAR in the name of GOD.

It will backfire. Worst still, brings you shame. Makes you look as if you’ve mocked the holy book, and at the same time, insulted those who believed in it.

It seems UMNO has mis-read the Malay Muslim mind. Using the oath swearing by Saiful Bukhairy to show that Anwar was guilty turned out to be a liability.

When I was in the Tengku Bainun counting centre awaiting the final countdown of the P44 results, Tajol who sat next to me said: “If as a non-Malay, you feel ashamed about the Quran swearing episodes, what about me, as a Malay and Muslim? I feel doubly ashamed that they could actually fool around with the Holy Book”.

According to him, this strategy by the BN to bring Anwar down, had backfired badly, leading to their loses.

A Malay hawker outside of the ceramah sites in Jalan Baru, Seberang Jaya told me:”We do not believe the sodomy allegations, especially the second time.

But we believe Najib (Tun Razak) has something to do with the Altantuya (Sharriibuu) case”.

Eventhough Najib also has taken an oath in the Guar Perahu mosque that he did not know Altantuya.

2) Voters DO NOT NEED a representative who can speak their mother tongue-language, they need one who can speak the language of justice, freedom, anti-corruption and anti-racism.

“You want an MP who can speak Chinese?” asked Hu Pang Chow, PAS’ fan club representative and official at a ceramah in Tanah Liat.

“Come to Kelantan, we have hundreds of Malays who can speak and write Chinese. Let’s have a debate between one of them and Arif Shah”.

3) Campaign strategy must be based on issues and not personality trashing, vilification, and slander.

A local journalist said to me: “You think Permatang Pauh voters are stupid? That they only rely on Anwar’s personality to vote for him? That was 1998.

This time around, PKR or rather PAKATAN RAKYAT leaders did not focus and stress so much on Anwar’s personality but issues affecting the rakyat , such as sound economic policies, reduction in fuel prices, multi-racial politics.

On the other hand, he added, the BN’s campaign was littered with all kinds of accusations against Anwar. Overplaying the SAIFUL SWEAR was a disaster. People just got tired of it.

4) The more you beat Anwar, the more the people love him.

UMNO failed to understand that human beings have ‘hearts, conscience and sympathy’ towards another fellow human being.

People of all races in this country ’empathised’ with Anwar and his family, not because of him personally, but because the people see it as a possible affliction upon themselves by state authority, thus uniting them, irregardless of race, religion, culture and social standing.

A Malaysian Indian doctor, who used to be 100 percent behind BN/MIC had this to say: Look at (Wan) Azizah (Wan) Ismail, Anwar’s wife. She is an intelligent and kind woman. If she believes Anwar, could he be so bad after all?

“I used to support BN/MIC all my life but when they started harassing Anwar with the sodomy allegations the second time, I gave up.

“Moreover, I pray everyday, and it is not right to witness injustice and not do anything about it. Hurting Anwar’s family is too much if UMNO just want to maintain power”.

5) The Anti-Corruption Agency has totally lost credibility:

The same doctor who spoke about Anwar threw an NST paper on the table when I walked in to see her about medication for high blood pressure (yes! I do have HBP).

On that particular day, news of the two PERAK PKR exco members involved in monetary and sexual graft had grabbed top spot on the front page with incriminating photos of the two with handcuffs.

And they had only been arrested for questioning and not charged yet.

The normally reserved doctor was aghast. ‘This is all bluff !!! Just because we have a PERMATANG PAUH by-election,’ she said ,stressing on the word P-E-R-M-A-T-A-N-G P-A-U-H.

“Come on, what about the UMNO guys who have been doing deals for 50 years??? What happenned to all of them?”

Bravo, doctor!

Now that the two PKR officials has not been charged but will have their case mentioned on September 15 (a day before Anwar’s September 16). This raises eye brows as to the independence of the ACA.

What the ACA actually is does not matter, the timing of the arrests, the PERAK ACA director’s involvement in announcing the case, and the postponement of the charges have created a big question mark in the public’s mind.

The duo are suing the ACA.

6) The ‘mainstream’ (actually UMNO owned) paper was another liability:

The doctor’s husband who is a lawyer in Penang calls me up often to find out about the recent happenings in Malaysia.

“Because if you are here, I do not need to read the papers anymore. I don’t know if they are telling the truth or not. I just read the sports pages”.

One example was the explosive revelation by Ustaz Ramlang Porigi that he was ‘ordered’ to witness Saiful Bukhairy oath on the Quran that he was sodomised by Anwar. The MSM gave the news little or no coverage at all.

Some reporters explained that they could not make it for the day’s deadline.
Still, the public mind who could not phantom such a thing immediately concluded that the controversial news was blacked out.

This is really a big blow and big insult to the countless hardworking reporters I know on the ground. Their paymasters and agency heads really owe them an explanation as to why their stories are edited to the extend that it may not represent the real picture.

“The quality is so bad, it’s not even good enough to be used as toilet paper”. I felt quite bad for my journo friends in the MSM actually.

At the counting centre, when I wanted to make way pass the crowd, I was let in easily when I said I was from ‘Malaysiakini’. “Oh, Malaysiakini, tak apa…boleh lalu, kalau paper lain…”

(To be continued…)

    UMNO will not change. It is in terminal decline and the only cure is for it to be put to death. I believe that if DSAI were to become prime minister and still remained in UMNO he will not be able to effect any changes because UMNO will swallow him whole! Just look at Badawi and you will know what I mean. But thank God, fate intervened. He has to go through the baptism of fire of the worst kind, and just pure gold that goes through the fire, he came out a different product that was purged from UMNO filth. For that Malaysians are fortunate because I believe there is no politician at present, even though there are many good ones in Pakatan, that has been tested thoroughly as what DSAI has gone through

    Last But Not Least:

    UMNO feudal-patronage leaders who tell lies, half-truths, hide, take wealth and riches of the countries all-for-themselves and their cronies, who condone corruption and abuse of power, who make use of Police, Judiciary …..etc etc etc

    can no longer get any support from Muslim-Malays who know their religion, who read alternative media, who mix with all kinds of peoples of different races, religions and even of different political ideologies.

    The Chinese and Indians are going to see more of the REAL Muslim-Malays can compost MANY if not most of the PKR and PAS.

    UMNO do not have the vote of REAL Muslim-Malays.

    Also, not forgetting the frequent racial comment by Bukit Bendera umno, and mca is making little bit noise:

    27/08/08: KUALA LUMPUR: MCA Youth will demand an apology from Bukit Bendera Umno chief Datuk Ahmad Ismail over a racist statement he supposedly uttered when campaigning for the Permatang Pauh by-election.

    Its secretary-general Dr Wee Ka Siong said the statement had angered the Chinese and other non-Malay communities.

    “I have received many complaints from the Chinese community over the statement for the past two days.

    “I am saddened that he could make such a statement. It is a generalisation to assume that all Chinese don’t treat their friends well. Accusing the whole community like this is uncalled for.

    “I know he was canvassing for votes during the recent by-election but he didn’t have to resort to using a racist statement,” he told reporters Wednesday at the Parliament lobby here.

    “It’s insensitive to talk about other races like this. We want him to retract the statement and we will demand an apology from him,” stressed Dr Wee.

    The statement, which was widely reported by the Chinese newspapers on Monday, has been posted on the website of the Puchong MCA Youth.

    Dr Wee also said it was unbecoming for a politician and community leader like Ahmad to make such remarks in a multi-ethnic community.

    “We want to maintain peace and stability in the country,” he said.

    I do believe the main cause of destruction of Umno is because of one stubborn old man and his SIL.
    Up till now, he’s still trying to lie to himself saying that the PP by election does not reflect on anything.
    I just can’t believe that those supreme council members still believes in him even though their party receives several bashing in a row.
    Are they stupid or are they just scared of him?
    Those who oppose him just can’t do anything at all, while the rest just let their nose being pulled by him.
    These few days, I’ve an instint that he’s trying to pull somethihg big before he dissapear.
    I find that he’s desperately trying to woo the Brunei sultan to invest in the IDR.
    With 36 billion in hand up till date, I believe that he might abscond with part of the money if he’ll to fall.
    The worse part is that if PKR were to take over the government by then, they will have to bear for every losses and they will then have no money to fulfill their promises to the rakyat after that.
    As a precaution, I do hope the opposition will keep track on this.
    Better warn those foreign investors first before things turn out ugly.
    I might be wrong about this but it’s better to take precaution for a lot of possibilities could happen.

  13. ‘Malaysiakini’. “Oh, Malaysiakini, tak apa…boleh lalu, kalau paper lain…”

They still have their ears and eyes closed. The only one who got it right from their side is Tungku Razaligh. The rest are still dreaming of glory and fortune. Perhaps it is a good thing for us rakyat because it will speed up their demise and good riddance too.

    Most will not believe that Anwar will not be a PM after Sept 16th.
    To me, it’ll be no surprise for in terms of logic, there will really be a jump over from the BN to PKR.
    To those who prefer to jump over, it’ll be a win win battle for them for they will continue to hold on to their position even after the next GE.
    For those who are still loyal to BN, I ‘m pretty sure that it’ll be the last for them if PKR were to takes over power.
    Even if PKR does not succeed, it will also be the last for them too because they’ll be outsted by the opposition in the next GE.
    There is nothing to lose whatsoever, for those who’re real smart!

  18. Veryconcerncitizen says:

    In fact, the landslide won by DSAI reflects the failure of BN/UMNO to perform the reform which was promised by PM way back to 2004 election.

    If those promises was carried out effectively, we won’t have 308 Tsunami happened and we will not see DSAI resurrection.

    Poor BN/UMNO, you were just too comfortable to take things as granted and terribly undermine the intellectual of the people in Malaysia.

    After 10 years, we see more and more open minded generation start to rise and we see new young generation today who no longer succumb to fear factor to defend the truth.

    Nevertheless, it is still not the final coffin nail for BN/UMNO yet as we also wish that they learn the lesson and agressively reform and evolve from thier old and narrow minded thinking. At the end, we would like very much a strong 2 party system where there is a good check and balance in the politic because any one site with lopsided majority will only invite evil doing due to imcompetiveness.

    Similary to PR who should learn from BN/UMNO failure and must always committed to carry out thier responsibility for the people in this country.

    Malaysian Monty Python (Blackadder series), Nagakaruppan (Blackcobra) is missing:

    The Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) has not been able to contact Datuk S. Nallakaruppan who alleged that Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had received RM60 million from a gaming firm.
    ACA Investigation Director Datuk Shukri Abdull said he had instructed his officers to contact Nallakaruppan as soon as possible pertaining to the allegation.

    “We are trying to contact him but until now we have not been able to do so, not yet,” he told reporters who asked him when ACA would summon Nallakaruppan, here Wednesday.

    Yesterday, ACA Deputy Director-General I Datuk Abu Kassim Mohamed said the agency would summon Nallakaruppan to get more information on the allegation.

    Last Saturday, Nallakaruppan said Anwar received RM60 million from a gaming firm when he was the company’s public relations director.

    He also alleged that Anwar had approved many gaming licences and four-digit lottery shops when the PKR advisor was Finance Minister and Deputy Prime Minister. – BERNAMA

    Matthew 5
    1And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:

    2And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

    3Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    4Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

    5Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

    6Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

    7Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

    8Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

    9Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

    10Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    11Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

    12Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

    13Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

    14Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

    15Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

    16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

    17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

    18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

    19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

    20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

    21Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

    22But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

    23Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;

    24Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

    25Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

    26Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

    27Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

    28But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

    29And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

    30And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

    31It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:

    32But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

    33Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

    34But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:

    35Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

    36Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

    37But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

    38Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:

    39But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

    40And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.

    41And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

    42Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

    43Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

    44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

    45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

    46For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

    47And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

    48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

    Halo halo, close to 70% of PP voters have voted for DSAI.

    It is a sad day for BN . They never grow up. Look at most of their leaders with
    no brains. They are supposed to lead and govern the Nation and provide developments. I have been looking at this MPs in the debate the IM the DUMNO youth and worst but the least the DPM. They are like tugs demanding unpaid bills
    using personnel attacks. This are not the leaders that can bring up the image of the Nation in between and outside the country. All they know is to get away by
    issues swearing on the Quran and historical personnel attack. The paramount
    question is the DPM qualifies to be our PM. HE HAS FAILED THE FIT AND PROPER TEST IN THIS PP BI ELECTION.

    Yes , i am sick that the Koran is used to whim and fancy of UMNO leaders. even more pissed that they twist it as say that it comes from Christian teaching. Diam diam also can kena tembak. More proactive like Herald, and government will issue threats. Government of gangsters.

    It seems to me that the episode of the swearing of the Quran has backfire, and it was a disgrace for the entire BN’s machinery for being trashed by Anwar in the by-election for the Permatang Pauh’s constituency.It is indeed shameful for UMN0 to stoop so low as to bring the low morality Saiful to try to convince the voters there of the sodomy’s case.Luckily,the Iman had made an impact for the whole incident and the people now was not easily swayed by ridiculous swearing of the holy Quran.

    Hi everyone,

    In my comments during the PP campaign period, I’ve warned that the timing of the Saiful sumpah laknat on the eve of nomination day and the overplay of the sodomy issue, apart from other issues I highlighted, would only ‘makan diri sendiri’ for BN and that would be answered on Aug. 26.

    I’ve also cautioned that the campaigning by KTK, seen on MSM unabashedly always ‘bodeking’ and clinging to the coat-tails of the PM and DPM, and at the same time, still thinking that he’s still a credible ‘leader’, would be counter-productive to the BN campaign, and that he should lie low during the final stretch of the campaign. What credibility has he to campaign when he has the Perak and Kedah party delegates calling on Gerakan to leave BN?

    Morever, claiming to be a ‘gentleman’, he resorted to ‘gutter-type’ politics by calling LGE an ‘akauntan buruk’ during the live telecast of the debate on land scams, yet not daring to comment at all on the alleged PGCC/Batu Kawan land scam when on at least 2 occasions queried by LGE at the debate! Where’s your credibity?

    Lest you be mistaken that I’m a BN sympathiser, let me state here that I’m all for multiracialism and multiculturalism, a check-and-balance through 2-party system. There’s hope for Malaysians and the generations to come that the 8 March and 26 August message that the people are now able to accept multiracial politics, and have generally rejected politics based on race and blatant use/abuse of religion, which only serves to lower the esteem of the religion.

    Let those who are truly religious stand in the way of those who’ve hijacked their faith for narrow political agendas!

    Eventhough Najib also has taken an oath in the Guar Perahu mosque that he did not know Altantuya.

    It seems not quite, Susan… Nut-Jib used the quibble of ‘the Mongolian woman’, which does not necessarily have to be Altantuya. This is likely so when he faces the Great Judge in the next world, he can claim he wasn’t telling lies over a holy book.

    BN is akin to an old bus..

    -it is powerfully built in the fifties, so it qualifies as a classic.
    -old technology(ideas) – 3 valves only, UMNO, MCA and MIC type
    -big horse power
    -‘petrol’ (money) guzzler
    -high maintenance costs and high cost of spares, can’t find replacement.
    -spews black smoke and mars the environment(they use puspakom, no need
    -can’t go fast, albeit big engine
    -frequent breakdown
    -noise pollution
    -rusty and cracking at seams, fit for junk yard.
    -old driver(Badawi) and conductor (Najib)
    -noisy and badly behaved passengers, some roudy..especially UMNO, other races
    keep to themselves, otherwise they will be thrown out of the bus before they
    reach the rainbow’s end.
    – some passengers already thinking of getting down at next stop (after P44)
    – no much value in second hand market, not even recognised by classic car
    -price still negotiable, as is where basis.
    -no insurance that it will run another year
    -old owner(DM) wants change of driver and co-driver, and do remedial work.

    Does not make any difference if any remedial work is done. Some of these passengers may want to take another bus who can serve them better.
    I heard now they want to scrap the old bus when the new ministry (Pakatan) takes over puspakom.

    Our current malay generation is racist now because they desperately want to hang on to privileges which I frankly believe it slowly causing the malay race to rot away and become a pathetic race on crutches dependent.

    I think that malays are the most stupid idiots on earth – they might have big sized bodies bud in their heads, but they have puny brains.

    Thus coming to the conclusion that they are the most stupid black blocks on earth – they are coloured black and stink like a garbage dump.

    Does malays ever think twice about their religious? What if yours believe is not what you think!

    You malays will rape anybody just for sexual pleasure. You didn’t read about the malay who raped his own sister?

    Not only that! They yell 5 times per day and expect to go to heaven! After committing so many sins like steal, rape, killing!

    Malays are so stupid that deserve to be robbed by their own government. They in fact deserve to be raped as well. Maybe we were better off as British rule Malaysia after all.

    Malays are jealous of Chinese, that is why they hate them. Americans are not jealous of Chinese, because they don’t need tongkat. They buy a lot of Chinese goods. If they hate, they would have boycott the products. Bodoh!

    Oh! Bodoh! Only blind man needs tongkat.

    If Americans don’t hate the malays, why is there so much bad press against Mahathir when he scolded the Americans? You malays are brainless and never read the newspaper. Everyday special rights here and there……….still like your tongkat so much!

    You go to American embassy and see which country now is blacklisted? Did they blacklist Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong?

    Even the Japanese look down upon the malays because they are just a bunch of lazy, fool, corrupt person who feed on the Chinese income tax for their existence.

    The malays want to produce as many pig babies as they want, but doesn’t teach them what is honesty, hardworking, civilisation!

  81. aston says:

    You malays don’t like it? You leave! We are going to stay! We like it here! Who gives you the right to tell us what to do?

    They just jealous because they are lose in economical race. I can understand that. If immigrants more rich than malays, then malays will be jealous like hell. It happens everywhere. If Chinese poor – I am sure malays never become racists but Chinese never made to be poor. We are made to be winners and sorry to the losers who become racists after that.

    Malays never beat Chinese in economy even until end of the world – their destiny is to become slaves.

    Why we live in your country because it is easier to earn money there – because your peoples have no brains that is why there are no competitive.

    We are not scare at you my friend, lots of Chinese already move to other country such as Australia, Singapore or US. We have the money, we can go everywhere we like even going back to China!

    God damn, you are really a fool. Why Chinese are everywhere? Here, let me tell you why. In China, it is hard to earn money because the competitive is extremely high. Where in country like Malaysia, there are no competitive at all – the reason is simple, you malays doesn’t know how to do business and earn cash, so all the opportunity goes to the Chinese.

    You have brain and you malays are well educated? And want to make Malaysia better? Why Malaysia still likes that? Corrupted, useless, weak junk country! The currency is useless, economy like shit! Think fools!

    Thanks to Malaysia? Hahaha! And you said become rich because of Malaysia? No, Chinese become rich because we are hardworking and smart! Fools you! Chinese go everywhere also can live, in Australia, US, and all over the world. Go traveling around and see if you can find any malay! Hahaha!

    Become smart because education in Malaysia? Dream! Think smart! Your education system is lousy, suck, useless! The standard is low! Find prove stupid!

    Heart? Where is our heart? You malays don’t like Chinese, why do Chinese have to pay our heart to Malaysia?

    Point the finger to yourself. What a big stupid malay fool dumbass.

    Also, visit your brother Indonesia, and you can see all the companies and shops are operated by Chinese. We also conquer your brother economy, fools! Hahaha……….what a joke! Indonesia!

    Let us face it. You don’t want Chinese to get out of Malaysia. Because if they did, Malaysia would never develop. They would also bring a great deal of financial wealth and investments with them too.

    Note Malaysia is doing well. It certainly isn’t because of the malays.

    And Thailand which is another prosperous South-East Asia nation. It also has a large Chinese population and a national culture that is welcoming towards Chinese. At least they have a leader on the South-East Asia knows of how to treat Chinese. It is no wonder that Thailand is on the verge of being a developed nation.

  84. Boleh says:

    We can’t change it politically, you are wrong. We will.

    Once this country is run by terms of equal rights, where each citizen play by the rules and regulations of total fairness, then we shall see where the malays will stand.

    Right down at the bottom? Most probably, yes! Not only the non-malays will agree, the whole world would probably agree as well. In fact some malays will agree this as well.

    The only thing that all of us can see, whether you are a Malaysian, or non-Malaysian, is that the malays here will never change. Not now, never will.

    Your level of intelligence and pathetic sense of judgement depict not only how truthfully and incompetently low life beings you are, crawling at the lowest level of the human hierarchy, begging for alms, practically putting all your grotesque clown-butt ugly faces in front of the world, self-admitting that even maggots feasting on a pile of dung, looks and sounds much much better.

    You defense on your own race, will not conclude anything, but strengthen the fact that even your pure existence in this very world of civilized human beings, is worse than the thought of having an incest driven rapist over for dinner.

    Ponder upon this, there is no point defending for yourselves, save it. The fact and all the truth speak louder than just stupid farts coming out from your infested mouth fueled by your retarded brain.

    To be honest, how naive you are with your pointless talk, we can see it in every glory in your statement here. In fact by calling you stupid, would be the most insulting thing by being stupid. Have you ever heard of the word opposition?

    Think my friend, if there is no such thing as bravery to challenge the government face to face, why would oppositions be there?

    By now, your retarded brain must be struggling, thinking, hey what is the point of oppositions if they are not effective enough to fight against the government? Good question.

    One word – CORRUPTION.
    The rest of the picture, I will also leave it up to you.

    The real cowards in Malaysia are the group of people who survive under bogus unfair rights, fictional promises which only rat testicles will believe they are true.

    The same group of people who destroying the country with their own social menaces, incest activities, drugs, materialistic punks with brains the size of a chicken shit, etc.

    The same group of people who are spoilt by unreasonable, pointless, total waste of time support from the government. Which even that, on that very constant support, they are still licking their own balls, nursing their injury, shamelessly.

    And still as of yet, presently and logically categorized as the POOREST class citizens who only survive by politically sucking other people’s hard earned benefits.

    The same group of people who idolizes external portrayal of physical goodness, but mentally and reality, are bunch of idiotic hypocrites nothing better than a rotting pair of pig testicles. Even the maggots would think twice of devouring such a distasteful crap.

    I am sick and tired of saying this over and over again. I honestly believe, that every single malay individual in this country, within their very heart, and best interests, know where they stand. They know right from the start, that they can’t win in a fair and equal environment.

    Their fictitious pride and ego made them proud of their weakness, never ever have the guts to admit their weaker side.

    And how do you think they survive? By playing dirty. And most of the time, very very dirty. To those malays who are successful, trust me, they are not pure malays. They are even embarrassed by the fact that they are malays.


    Still think and insist malays are for perpaduan? fair? got integrity and dignity?

    The only way to have perpaduan is: you motherf***ker stripe your own babi status and come to term with other races on level playing field…………that is what we call a step towards perpaduan…………..!

    We are all Malaysians, why not? What is your problem?

    Now the answer to this I leave it to you to think. How you want to think it with your level of stupidity, I have truly no idea.

The System which is based on “KETUANAN MELAYU” will even fail Anwar when he becomes PM unless he can motivate the System to change.

    So there was no way I could ‘close off’ this decade without attending the gathering last night (read Malaysiakini’s report) at Kampung Baru to mark the return of Anwar to active politics after the expiry of his ban which arose from that unjust convictions and subsequent jailing.

    And it was there that I heard last night for the first time the term that I hope will put for rest once and for all the curse of racist policies that prevents Malaysia from moving forward in a meaningful way.

    That term is ‘Ketuanan Rakyat’ (People’s Supremacy) and it is the bedrock of the new vision that Anwar espouses to bring to Malaysia.

    He had to undergo severe beatings, be jailed for years and lose all his powerful positions before he could throw away his earlier principles and forge this new vision.

  104. Billau Chris says:

    The UMNosaur era shall soon reach the point of extinction if it continues to be guided by its arcade paradigm that was conceived and entrenched in their thick skull more than half a century ago.

    The time has come for drastic changes to be made in the ways in which socio-economic and religious policies were formulated and implemented. There shall be fairness, transparency and sincerity in governing the country.

    The people have opted for multi-racialism at all levels. Its wind will increase in greater intensity as the years advance. The call for the formation of Malaysian Malaysia is getting louder and louder at each general election. Religious acceptance shall be encouraged in preference to tolerance. Let us restore firstly the freedom of association and the enviable inter-racial harmony that prevailed among the various races before Merdeka. For this to happen, let all schools, colleges and universities, private or public, be open to all races based on merits. This will be the surest way of producing world class institutions of higher learning.

    The civil service and the GLOs shall need immediate restructuring in terms of racial composition. CEOs who are appointed thereto must have the necessary business acumen. qualifications, experience and knowlege.

    Focus on eradication of corruption, nepotism and cronyism must be given priority. At the same time, the judicairy and police force shall need reformation.

    About, ensure that national resources are not squandered. They shall be shared by all citizens of the country.

    The cabinet must comprise people who are credible, knowledgeable, hard-working and service-oriented. They must have the welfare of the people at heart.

    Well, the list is not exhaustive. But if BNaurs and the UMNosaurs can implement half as much, they shall prolong their extinction life. If not, by the next GE, they shall go under.

    In the meantime, all PRers must serve to the best of their abilities and ensure that the MPs from BN do not abuse their positions.

    In the 1950 s1960 s & early 70s Malaysian football team is among the best if not the best in ASIA. We r always in the final. At that time South Korea & Japan is no where compared to us.I remember we usually play d final with Iraq. So what happen nowadays? I can boldly say the rot is primarily due to discrimination.I think d MCA & MIC is not much of a relevance in BN as d majority of d Chinese & Indian do not supoort them any more.The reason is bcos UMNO grab everything for themselves leaving only the crumbs to the rest.

  108. Azmin says:

    oh mak cik Idzan, I thought you were RIP somewhere with your Idol mathir. I guess you must be from the old generation or outdated. anyway if still alive, pls update yourself before you are left behind by us the malaysia’s malaysian.

  109. Orang Utan says:

    Malaysia cannot move fast is bcos we cannot discard the racial politics. Soon US will have a black man as President. So what r we waiting for? We r still embrioled in racial politics & racial discrimination.

  112. Orang Utan says:

  118. idzan ismail says:

    Hola guys

    The Mahathir comment was to tie-up with my comment on Susan’s earlier posting wanting to be Anwar’s driver.
    Ouch Giggles. Never an activist. Let alone a racist activist.
    If you check all my comments in this blog or others I also did not use swear words.
    Never thought that way. Foul words mean foul mind.
    When I was in the Star thete was a colleague who addressed me as Hey Bumiputra .
    I never took offence. We are still friends.
    After all journalists are known to taunt, tease and tirade with each other.
    Jimmy Page, easy with the anger. So juvenile.
    Most of my comments were to provoke you guys.
    They don’t call me agent provocateur for nothing..
    But I get good stories from being one.
    Ps. Come Ramadan I try not to comment. Can’t be angry or argue. Just read, shake or nod my head or LOL.
    But Nik Aziz said its okay to criticise leaders if they are wrong.
    He’s also one of my idol.

  119. Kapitan says:

    One UMNO frat says… we didn’t lose nor the PR win the PP election. See, we still have the 140MP. Its only taking the wife out of the kitchen and putting the husband in it.
    What he didn’t realise is, Man is a better cook. So well done UMNO your steaks will be cooked ans served by this cook..ok?

  120. Jari Emas says:

    “Tun M may be coming back to lead Umno.”…. You think he is still young and healthy ? Dun play2 lor. Amen!

  121. glaize says:

    I agree with the reasons you gave, Susan. It should be about time that the BN-MPs realize what they are actually doing. Taking politic personally is never a good idea.

  122. machitam says:

    the new cook is in the PR restaurant. so if umno MP’s would like a taste of a new menu of racial harmony, anti-corruption, justice for all and economy cake distribution to all….they come in the bus we will have a party there.

    as for idzan, he just want to have a moonlight dinner with his/her idol, dreaming away…

  123. roy selvan says:

    To all who has made racial remarks against another Malaysian. There is no perfect race here. Not in Malaysia or the world. The jews even in control of the world economy is not perfect.So lets not brag about over race.All have fall short in the mighty glory of the Living GOD. Learn to love your neighbour first and in order to be first we must be seen last in the eyes of God.

    Fallen, sinful human hearts are always going to be subject to the temptation to think of ourselves more highly than we ought to think (Rom. 12:3), which is the root of all prejudice

  124. ahmad says:

    Anonymous (08:36:37) :

    Why UMNO got trashed?

    Because UMNO similar to the act of some BN cybertroopers for eg sampah sarap Malaysia called chaptokam, uttered and made a lot of sampah sarap.

    Sampah sarap got to be trashed.

    that’s a good one.
    no wonder chaptokam gets so pissed off

  125. najib bin altantuya says:

    Pak Lah is doing great for the nation and UMNO. The country need this dark period before embarking on a new beginning and new hope for the country.

    Malaysia is far behind countries that once look up to us, to name a few this are Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Singapore. UMNO is bringing the country down the Zimbabwe direction by 2020 but we are lucky to have Pak Lah to do it in 5 short years instead of 18 years. Everyone is getting nevious when they see the country is heading towards a Zimbabwe and now everyone feel the need to do the reverse instead of waiting till 2020.

    So please thanks Pak Lah instead of blaming him, the one who started 2020 is Tun Dr M the No 1 racist of Ketuanan Melayu so please blame him for started the sinking of UMNO.

    Ah, yes neat. Then there`s the NST indian journalist who after Kadir Jasin took over was told “Now we begin the ethnic cleansing” by a fellow malay journo.
    He too did not take offense – he just left the New S*it Times.

  128. hutchrun says:

    2008-08-28 18:07

    KUALA LUMPUR: PKR advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim slammed UMNO Bukit Bendera divisional chairman Ahmad Ismail as a “low class” politician.

    “That is exactly what ‘low class’ politicians would do.”

    He was commenting on the remarks by Ahmad Ismail that the Chinese are squatting in Malaysia and if they are in power, they will not be fair to all races.

    Anwar said this kind of people will not bother about the feelings of other races.

    “Why did he talk that way? Perhaps out of some political motives. However, he should have been more careful before making any comment. Why is he trying to instigate the emotions of other races? This is just another instance that explains why UMNO will lose its dominance in Penang.” (Sin Chew Daily)

  135. wits0 says:

    Hutchrun, there have been many low class Ahmad Ismails but most MSM papers dare not mention ’em previously . It is gratifying to know that things are changing. This time, they’ll be well documented from now on by others.

    Sure, Robert, mak chik idzan ini cakap tak carry weight and is not personal ; likewise the incomings which we chose to return also should be similarly considered as such. Knowing the double speak of the gutless dud Star too well, i.e. Sure, latuk WCW would also say that he isn’t personal in making the readership stupid too.

    Hey wits0, mac, hutch & friends, a lil’diversion here.

  137. One of the real reasons probably is Muslim-Malays have awakened from their slumber, eagerly and willingly to be intelligent again like what DSAI has been echoing ” kita orang Melayu cerdik” all this while.

    To be really “cerdik” they must support Pakatan Rakyat to adhere to the rule of law. For good leaders, they make laws and not break laws.

  141. Penang Exile says:

    Even TDM is openly associating with PKR. See photo on page N10 of The Star (28 Aug 2008). Chrisanne Chin, a Christian leader and advisor of PKR’s Selangor MB, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, is seen (standing, left) leading a delegation of Christian youth to meet with TDM at the Perdana Leadership Foundation. Will TDM come to a compromise with DSAI soon?

  142. BobbyNZ says:

    History will tell you Economic Problems lead to change of governments like Hitler in Germany, Mao in China and etc. So few Malaysians knew that it was Anwar that opened the door for the Clinton Adm to paralyse the Malaysian economy in 1997/8 and its after effects to this day. The situation is now exercerbated by the “credit crunch” afflicting economies worldwide. If not for his betrayal, Malaysia would be poised like China to deal with this present crisis!

    Wake up Malaysians. Dont be fooled by him. Your future is at stake. Dr M knew him too well to say : “he can even convince the Devil to follow him”.

    “The quality is so bad, it’s not even good enough to be used as toilet paper”. I felt quite bad for my journo friends in the MSM actually.

    If UMNO had wanted to use NST as its propaganda media they should at least be honest about it just like harakah where they placed “untuk ahli pas sahaja” on top of the title.

    In short MSM do not exist in malaysia – it is just one large “lies manufacturing factory”.

    Idzan, you are not smart enough to make me angry, you never were and you never will be. The fact that you worked at the Star does not impress me one bit, I get my info from asia times, not a two bit operation like the Star. As for Dr. M, if he were to come back it would be almost impossible for him to get any support. UMNO is finished, and it does not matter who is in charge. Mahathir knows this, that is why he knows his chance of returning to power is slim to none. He is paralyzed and has no grassroots support, he has burned his bridges and has no where to turn. Your best hope is Razaleigh, and even he knows he is too old and too limited to mount a strong challenge to Anwar. Laugh all you want, but some of us are looking at the realities on the ground.
