What next? "Dracula to Audit the Blood Bank"?

"It will not do to cling to the cause 
and wish the result away.
Reality does not play mind games.

What is more, to anesthetize the mind 
in order to abort what comes to birth-
when wrong ideas are conceived 
and borne in the womb of culture,
will only kill the very life-giving force 
of the nation that nurtures the idea."
- Ravi Zacharias


Some may wonder why I don't write as I used to anymore ...
It is just that we don't need any arguments against the mindless UMNO hordes- for they themselves, are the arguments against themselves (hope that makes sense). Their actions speak for themselves ... Res ipsa loquitur.

Lately, true to the UMNO style- they have picked our beloved ex-IGP, Hanif Omar, to lead an "independent" panel of experts into the BERSIH inquiry. I can only imagine that it was in line with the advice of another dinosaur called Mahathir ...

Incidentally, this dinosaur (who lives in a long extinct time & space), had made it quite clear he is of opinion that the opinion that Communists were behind BERSIH 3.0. He reportedly told Bernama (the UMNO mouthpiece), "I recognise from the photos and broadcast images (taken from the rally), the pro-communist people who were involved in the 1970s demonstrations."
And you, Hanif- If you had/have any sense of integrity, you would withdraw from the panel of inquiry. You in your old age ... have you lost all sense of shame too? 

UMNO, oh UMNO .... They just don't care what the people or the world think of them- they just do whatever pleases them. Just when we think they have reached the abyss of shamelessness- they prove us wrong.

The UMNO regime bears all the hallmarks of a decadent regime crumbling . They are being given all the opportunities to  reform themselves- but like a drug-addict in cold-turkey, they just crave for more of their self-destructive habit/ behavior.
The way I look at it, for better or worse, it is only a matter of time before they come crashing down.

It has been said that "He who closes his ears to the views of others shows little confidence in the integrity of his own views"
And then they wonder why people want them out ....

'It's akin to picking Dracula to audit the blood bank'
YOURSAY 'Hanif Omar thinks there are communists in Bersih 3.0 which he says was a coup attempt. He is also a former cop. How independent can this panel be?'

Ex-IGP Hanif Omar leads Bersih 3.0 probe panel

your sayKairos: The whole exercise of the 'independent panel' is a whitewash. The head of the panel, former inspector-general of police Hanif Omar, has certainly disqualified himself by his recent comments that the purpose of the Bersih rally was to topple the government.

Mushiro: By appointing Hanif to head this commission, it shows that Najib is not bothered about public perception and is not bothered about wanting to be seen to be fair.

Quigonbond: I'm fell off my chair being totally impressed with the "independent panel". Sin Chew legal head and Sinar Harian editor wouldn't give an independent analysis of events because there is still a licence revocation fear hanging overhead .....
And the head of the panel himself, who's just fresh from accusing Bersih 3.0 of attempting to overthrow the government, is surely the most qualified, having vested interest being deputy chairman of a casino company.

Tidakboleh: The finding is a foregone conclusion - Hanif will conclude that his original suspicion (from a vantage point in the Genting Casino) that communists of the 1970s era have infiltrated the movement is true.
His recommendation will be to declare a state of emergency, dissolve Parliament and the country to be ruled by NOC II (National Operations Council II), headed by none other than Najib, with Dr Mahathir Mohamad as adviser.

Kangaroo: Witnesses should boycott the panel headed by Hanif as he has made biased statements against Bersih.

1Mockery: Hanif to head the "independent" panel - this is a mockery.
Please include some politicians too - Zulkifli Nordin, Hasan Ali, don't forget Ibrahim Ali. They will be the world's best independent panel in the world's best ‘democrazy'.

AkuDahUbah: One word sums it all up, credibility. After his outburst regarding the communists in Bersih, and his implicit support for the harsh police crackdown, what credibility does this man have?
