Please note that the people aren't
sidetracked by this issue to ignore
the persecution and sham trial of Anwar today.
Chinese especially the women came to sell their bodies”
~Nasir Safar, PM Najib's aide at 1-Malaysia camp,
Racism hinders Najib’s 1 Malaysia
That means, it actually morphed into the indoctrination monster that it is now, under the Mahathir administration from 1981-2003. Let's forget the "Avatar"'s statement lamenting the failure of Hitler's final solution (or about how the Jews should be massacred from time to time), for now.
So there you have it from the horse's mouth - it popped out of this idiot, Nasir's mouth unwittingly at a 1-Malaysia forum- that Umno Malays believe that Non-Malays came in as beggars and prostitutes!!!
They don't care to see the truth that the older generations - older than the 1st generation opportunistic closet racists like Mahathir and Khir Toyo - came here to build the nation to what it is today. That too, they forget (or choose to ignore) that it is they who should be grateful that these "pendatangs" came and made life better for them - the new "BN/Umno bumiputra" elite. But now, with the money they robbed the people of through their cronies, arrogance and shit fill their bloated bellies and heads. They now conspire against these hardworking people using an ignorant vote bank whom they wish to manipulate- so as to hold on to power and further enrich themselves.
It appears that with the many scandals haunting them, flight of capital (50% of the RM 700b last year alone!!), economy crumbling, and the shrinking pie from which the can pirates pilfer the resources of the country- the sectarian/racist rhetoric is going into overdrive. They just cannot help themselves ..... they need to let out their frustration at the awareness of the people, and being demonized for their fascist/racist ideas and/or their agenda of piracy. Whatever they do, all their mindless actions (from cow heads, to pig heads, to burning churches) lead to only one thing - expressing the frustration they're feeling at their inability to rob the economy blind.
Huge damage done to Najib's propaganda of 1-Malaysia.
Even though he (Nasir) has been asked to resign, you can bet your last penny that he'll be given another cushy job away from the glare of the media (just like that teacher who called Indian school-kids "monkeys" in class, remember?). This frustrated individual will now be a hero to the (Umno Malay only) fascist groups like Perkasa and what not - and the mindless minions will now rally around him to express their frustration and apparent disenfranchisement.
We then have the **BTN going around spewing hatred, racism and bigotry in indoctrination classes for "Malay" undergraduates and civil servants separately. I wonder what these racist morons who support Umno think about that versus 1-Malaysia .....
Anyway - the following is something I've taken from a forum online (slightly edited with loose translation by me) on the **BTN song:-
This is the Original version - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnXobqUW_20
And this one is the Latest Version - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAbHQSA8-x4
So I wonder, why they changed the original song? Is it because of racist statement or something else? I realize that the newer version has cut 2 "rangkap" (verses) of lyrics.
I'm including the lyrics for you guys...
Anak kecil main api
Terbakar hatinya yang sepi
Airmata darah bercampur keringat
Bumi dipijak milik orang
(Little kid plays with fire
His heart burns silently
Tears of blood mixes with sweat
The land now belongs to others)
Nenek moyang kaya raya
Tergadai seluruh harta benda
Akibat sengketa sesama kita
Cita lenyap di arus zaman
(The ancestors were rich
All wealth has been sold/mortgaged
Due to conflict between us
Ambition/Hopes forgotten in time)
Indahnya bumi kita ini
Warisan berkurun lamanya
Hasil mengalir ke tangan yang lain
Pribumi merintih sendiri
(This beautiful land of ours
Culture centuries old
Wealth of the nation flows into the hands of others
The natives lament in solitude)
Masa depan sungguh kelam
Kan lenyap peristiwa semalam
Tertutup hati terkunci mati
Maruah peribadi dah hilang
(The future looks bleak
Events of yesterday will be forgotten
The heart is closed and locked tight
And our dignity has been lost)
Kini kita cuma tinggal kuasa
Yang akan menentukan bangsa
Bersatulah hati bersama berbakti
Pulih kembali harga diri
(Political power is what we are only left with,
one that will determine the fate of our nation,
Unite to contribute/serve,
to the resurgence of our dignity)
Kita sudah tiada masa
Majulah dengan gagah perkasa
Janganlah terlalai teruskan usaha
Melayu kan gagah di Nusantara
(Time is running out
Let's moved ahead with courage
Don't be apathetic in dischaging your duties
Malays will be strong in Nusantara)
Note:-In the Newer Version, the word Pribumi (Natives) and Melayu(Malay) has change to the word Kita (Us/We). and Also the bold part has been removed from the Newer Version
This is because BTN courses are compulsory for all students of public institute of higher learning, government scholarship holders and civil servants. Failure to attend or pass the BTN courses would jeopardise their career prospects, academic assessments or aid/scholarship approvals.
(excerpts from the report)
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 3 — Race relations, already aggravated by the ‘Allah’ row, attacks on places of worship and the Biro Tata Negara controversy, is in danger of spiralling out of control in Malaysia despite the resignation of Datuk Nasir Safar last night as special officer to the prime minister.
Political analyst Khoo Kay Peng, writing in his blog yesterday, called Nasir’s remarks that “Indians came to Malaysia as beggars and Chinese especially the women came to sell their bodies” at a 1 Malaysia seminar in Malacca a symptom of ugly racial politics.
“The question is why are we not surprised by Nasir’s allegations. Nasir is a symptom of ugly racial politics,” Khoo wrote.The tone of Nasir’s remarks, especially when he allegedly warned Indians that the government could revoke their citizenships if excessive demands were made by the community, reflects a growing intolerance among many in Umno with the non-Malays particularly after the Hindraf 2007 march that put the government in bad light.
And Nasir cannot be considered a maverick speaking out of turn or a fringe minority within Umno. He was part of Najib’s team in government and was also a former Umno lawmaker from Johor, well-versed in government policy and the need to implement effectively and efficiently without a doubt.
The remarks made by Nasir is also not the first time an Umno official has caused major embarrassment for the party and the government with racist remarks.(Click on title/link above for more)
