KJ: Politics of Empathy or Whoring?

"Do remember that
and cowardice always have to be paid for.
Don’t imagine that for years on end
you can
make yourself the boot-licking propagandist
of the Soviet regime, or any other regime,
and then suddenly return to mental decency.

Once a whore, always a whore."

-George Orwell


I don't want to coast along with the old model because,
clearly, it has been rejected.

That is why I made it a point, when we set up our community complaints bureau,
that some of the first cases we solved would be for non-Malays."

- Mr. Khairy

"The internal split within Umno will weaken the party’s position
and this will pave way for the Chinese Malaysians
to make various demands to benefit their community"
- Mr. Khairy, 18 August, 2006 (quoted in Sin Chew Daily)

"after awhile, you get immune to these things."
-Mr. Hishammuddin

"Some people" believe that because they peddle their "goodies" on the street to desperate people, they deserve respect, and should be regarded as saviours of the world (and some other ignoramuses also believe that, anyways). They don't mind having to do or say stupid and shameless things - as long as they eat better, it's fair game. Surely those professionals on the street, providing sexual favours know a thing or two about this "Politics of Empathy" - so, this "some people" must've surely got some pointers from them ....

"Some people" believe that the solution to all their ills lie in their ability to be peddlers of popular sentiments - regardless of personal convictions. Their logic is very simple - when you know that your convictions are rejected, simply start whoring for greater appeal among the masses, using the talents at your disposal. And they strive to create these desperate masses who'd succumb to the temptation they present - on their own terms, though.

It doesn't matter one bit if their convictions (in line with that of their mindless herd), are diametrically opposed to that which they empathize with - what matters to these gutter politicians is that they can sell themselves to the people they woo. Hypocrisy is just the name of the game.
They have some fancy names to boggle the "minds" of their mindless minions and simpletons - they call it "Politics of Empathy".

Don't underestimate these guys - they're smart, alright.
Especially since they were bred in systems far superior (International schools and even Oxbridge, I hear) to our pathetic Malaysian education system, which has become the laughing stock among educationists. (Yes - in Malaysia, it can only look like education, and sound like education - but it just isn't education).

The sad part is, they don't learn, know or even understand the meaning of ethics or morality .....
