Between Najib and Mahathir:
Choose One, Play Along with the Other
Bersatu above; below, Mahathir Mohamad and Zaid Ibrahim.
How was that — the post title, I mean — for forgetting. No, we, the Chinese, won’t forget. We have elephant memories. Remember the Sarawak elections? Then Kuala Kangsar and Sungai Besar? Mahathir was trashed good and proper in those places. Wasn’t he? Cornered between Najib and Mahathir, we’d rather pick Najib. Want to know why?
It isn’t because we remember what those Bersatu leaders meant to us and how they had treated us before. Nor is it because we want to, as you said, “harp on small mistakes.”
Small, did you say? People like Mahathir had instigated for setting fire to Chinese lives and property, and you call those “small mistakes”. You see any difference between the Mahathir of the past and Jamal Yunos of the present?
No. We see no difference. Which is the reason we choose Jamal of Sungai Besar. This is because he, like Najib, is the product of Mahathir. Najib can be bought — and to protect our lives and our property, why not? The police aren’t going to do it anyway. But Mahathir? He has to be eradicated. Here, below, is he some 40 years later when justifying Bersatu’s existence:
If the new party is to compete with UMNO, it must give the people in the rural constituencies and the unsophisticated urban constituencies the kind of comfort associated with UMNO’s kind of racism. (The quotation appeared at Chedet’s 2016 August page since removed.)
That wasn’t some small, one-off mistake. There’s more:
For the rural people who largely are poor, race is not only important but they believe is essential for their well-being. UMNO’s popularity is because it is a racial party.
And, here, is you recently:
(S)ome Malays today do not live in the real world. They feel the need for an “Islamic state” without knowing what it actually means. They are fearful of DAP but are happy with Chinese from Beijing taking over the country. (2016 November 9)
Hang Li Po, I know you are smiling with satisfaction from the heavens, but have pity on us. Don’t take away everything from my beloved country. (2016 November 4)
Nov 4 corroborates your Nov 9 remarks of “some Malays” who see the Chinese — whether they live in China or in Malaysia is of no difference to you — as wanting to “take away everything” from Tanah Melayu. Guess whose favorite statement is that 30, 50 years ago?
So you see Zaid, you haven’t really, really changed from your Umno days. Have you? To you, the heart is of no importance; truth and empirical facts much less. Only winning the vote matters: in the present situation, beating Najib at the ballot is all that counts to you.
So what’s going to happen to the Chinese should Bersatu win? What’s Mahathir going to say? Or do? That the party leaders, because they are in government and for the “comfort of unsophisticated Malays”, must therefore stop the Chinese from “taking away everything”?
Of course, against Najib, we’ll work with Mahathir and Muhyiddin and Bersatu. We’ll work even with you, Zaidi boy. But that’s because it will destroy Malaiyoo unity. BTW, those are Mahathir’s words, not ours. You’ve forgotten, have you? Convenient ain’t it?
So, Zaid, we won’t harp on small mistakes. We’ll harp on big ones…. You are still so fucking Umno: go screw your mother.
Postscript: Read that you might contest in the next GE. Don’t enter a constituency with Chinese in it because we’ll hold your placards and banners and then pour every sen into making sure you lose, not just your fucking deposit, but your prick. Asshole.
