"Malaysian simpletons just don't seem to get it ....."
Altantuya's ghost is most welcome - thank you.
make no mistake about that) that -
It is actually a confession that there are indeed many Malaysias.
One each for "orang kuat" Melayu Umno,
the royalty/aristocrats, non-Umno Melayu,
then for the Balas, Lingams, Vincent Tans, Eric Chias, Tajudins, Halim Saads, Nasimudins, and "anak orang kuats",
then we have one for the "bumiputra",
then the "saudara baru" and the "lain-lains".....
then for the "kafirs" who are further subdivided depending on the color of their skin, religion, political affiliation, social standing and bank balance.
The only difference is, in this "pyramid scheme" of things, this idea actually is meant to articulate the need for the many Malaysias, which in turn will fight for the one Malaysia as defined by Umno.
It is actually meant to perpetuate the status quo. That's all.
(The Altantuyas, Kugans, Adi Mansors, Noritas - you guys "can eat cake", alright!)
"membalas budi", after the many electioneering bribes at Bkt Selambau & Bkt Gantang! In DPM's book, for one to respond positively to bribes, is called - "membalas budi".
Already we have one ex-Umno (and now an independent "frog") threatening with pride to run amuck should anyone say that this "1 Malaysia" is meant to displace the "ketuanan melayu" ideas and the NEP. Many other fascists have come out in open support of this shameless stance - Jibby's underlings included. The Car-Toon has yet to do so - but be very sure that he'll managed to spin it well enough (squeezing a few pairs of testicles, while at that), so that his worshippers dumbfounded by the "depth of his wisdom".
halal), and applaud the great wisdom of these "leaders".
Anyway, whatever slogan they may use, the desired end result is always the same - hoodwinking the masses into total submission, so that the power of the Umno aristocracy is unchallenged.
But of course you have the freedom to "express yourself" through a "vibrant, free and informed media" , and journalists are to be brave enough to report to "allow people to hold public officials accountable", "regardless of consequences". Truly amazing indeed, this Jibby fella - this is just after some journalists were barred from certain events. No wonder some people say that he just another bureaucrat - an intellectual amoeba on par with Pak Lah.
Meanwhile, Mr. Rais Yatim- our latest (our "three-in-one" info minister) said, “I can bring the horse to the water, but I can't force it to drink.”
Yup - they wanna feed horses hogwash, and hope they drink!
Oh boy - here I was hoping that we'll have someone more credible after Mr. Sleepy ......
