Just the headlines will tell you, this year launches the Malaiyoo Islamofascist war against all Others.

When will the Fascists round us into ghettos then on to the Ovens?

***

Just as Hilter’s people sowed a deep hatred for 6 million Jews before killing them, all of them, Mahathir Mohamad and his Kadir Jasin generation sowed a deep hatred for Chinese. (Though the Chinese are still alive; Malaiyoos are always so slow, even to kill.) Today, taking the agenda a step forward, Najib Razak’s men have subcontracted the same to PAS, to the Hadi Awangs, the Zakir Naiks, the muftis and the Perlis Asris, these men awaiting the day to ‘wipe out’ the Chinese, kill more kafirs and more infidels and to install the new Malaiyoo paradise. Islamic state style, of course, ala Kadir Jasin.

Wong Chen! Malays are so ‘sweet’…?

Always, this is how it — the genocide — begins. Headline…

#1. Delegate: War with DAP nothing do with them being non-Muslims

https://i2.wp.com/mk-cdn.mkini.net/1107/b33faa01933ff65250eba1c683a302cf.jpeg

Of course, not. It has everything to do with the Chinese, this neo-Mahathirism, and which explains why one never hears a word in response from the Muhs and the Mahs. Najib knows what it takes to shut up their arse. He learned it from them, experienced it.

Which is also to say that every time Malays fight among themselves, they first pick on the bystander, the neighbor, the Chinese. It was how May 13th began, and on to the next.

[Warning to these Malays: We have installed a deterrent. Know what that is? It is like a bait-thing which you like, you take, you bite, you swallow, and you die. An agonizing Islamic death. Allahuakbar! Is that how you say it in Arabic?]

#2. NGOs moot review of 1.75m citizenships granted from 1957 to 1970

https://i2.wp.com/mk-cdn.mkini.net/1106/ca10938599f03fbce7cbceb785b74b73.jpeg

Another product of Mahathirism: See, what a bunch of coconut Malaiyoo monkeys. Fists up, so frightening! We’re so frightened that our knees are rattling.

Hey monyets! Make sure, though, Umno — your government — leaves out the Indonesians, the Banglas, and the Zakir Naiks.

#3. Differing views no reason to send Zakir to BJP-led India

https://i2.wp.com/mk-cdn.mkini.net/1041/8c99cfb6f1682fb50584b52bc245b4ff.jpg

But send Zakir to Umno-led Putrajaya. Fuck you, Asri.

#4: Revive ISA to deal with Hindraf, say NGOs

https://i1.wp.com/mk-cdn.mkini.net/1106/c062e9582f59540b7579c3f65f18f62a.jpeg

Don’t forget to deal with Mahathir, as well, boy.

PAS for All, Sharia for All: Have a good look at that Kelantanese pig.

Islamofascism, an afterword from…

The Logic of Syed Akbar Ali

From syedsoutsidethebox:

  • You can see this almost everyday at the Toll Plazas, especially in KL and the Klang Valley.  The Peroduas, Protons and small cars all line up at the Tambah Nilai and Bayaran Tunai lanes at the toll gates.  These are the folks who live almost hand to mouth. The urban poor. They actually prefer the Bayar Tunai lanes because they can then carry just enough toll money for the journey.

Want to guess their agama and bangsa?

  • Then you have the Mercedes, Audis, BMWs,  Camrys, Accords etc that just sail through the Smart Tag lanes.  You can see their balance remaining RM100, RM200 etc. These are the people who have cash to meet their daily living expenses.

Want to guess their agama and bangsa?

*

Syed Akbar’s conclusion when he becomes Prime Minister Akbar bin Mahathir:

Different ethnic groups with disparities in income, one driving Protons and the other Mercedes, will lead to jealousy and instability. In order to maintain peace, harmony and unity in our beloved country, our Tanah Malaiyoo, my government will therefore implement the New Economy Policy v.2. Thirty percent is an insult to bumis. Henceforth, Malays shall have a quota of 70 percent Mercedes. I take the first.

Hey thambi mamak! Go fuck your mother.

Thinking they have got the Chinese cornered in Malaysia, there are Malaiyoos, (PAS, Perkasa, Umno, Bersatu, Ismail Sabri) who believe they are a big deal, bigger because they have like-minded Islamic motherfuckers 5000 miles cutting the throats of defenseless people. Truly, these coconut kampung heads: people who didn’t know the Chinese invented suicide killing — and, we’re masters in torture — long before there was even an Islamic state.

Below: A sign from Allah. Even Allah blesses infidels to wipe out PAS, which will be destroyed. Allah has today declared its destruction! And we, infidels, naturally want to obey Allah.

Hannah ‘Chameleon‘ Yeoh: yesterday Bangsa, next day Chinese, tomorrow Islamic, but always Anglophile.

*

Opportunist, Hypocrite, Racist…

and Stupid — like Umno men

*

Malaysiakini‘s DAP promotion piece — ‘Anak Malaysia’ mum vindicated as BN sees the light in ‘Bangsa Malaysia’ — has no author name. It was published as news but, let’s see….

First, the supposed news: the ‘vindication’ from BN. Says ‘The News & Views That Matter (TNVTM):

It was a vindication of sorts for Subang Jaya state assemblyperson Hannah Yeoh, who was chastised for trying to register her daughter’s race as ‘Anak Malaysia’.

Vindication? Of sort? What fucking sort? Vindication from what, by what and by who?

Later, Malaysiakini suggested it was kids — that is, kids! Not BN — who are vindicating a matter of national policy, a vindication provided via Khairy Jamaluddin who was again quoted to say “young Malaysians (from a TN50 ‘feedback’) prefer to be known as ‘Bangsa Malaysia’ in the next 30 years.

‘Prefer to be known’, when they were born or when they turn nine? Nine is the Sahabudin-age ripe for marriage. And these kids want to be known as such only in the next 30 years? Not after that?

Now, you are beginning to see how it is Malaysiakini and reporters begin to fabricate news…

So, what exactly was it that Khairy said about the ‘feedback‘? Kids wanted all their birth certificates rewritten as ‘Bangsa Malaysia’ in the space marked for ethnic origin and not as Chinese or Malays or Indian?

Another supposed news faked by TNVTM:

Hannah Yeoh had wanted to define the identity of her first born, Shay Adora, as Bangsa Malaysia

It is a matter of documented fact that Hannah wanted Shay Adora registered as ‘Anak Malaysia’. Shay was born of a Chinese mother and her Indian husband, Ramachandran Muniandy. To register her baby, Hannah had three choices, Chinese, Indian and Chinese/Indian. Instead, after failing to register her as ‘Anak Malaysia’, she wrote on the application Chinese — not Chinese/Indian, a matter of fact; or Indian which ought to have been the natural choice in Asian patriarchy systems.

So the reason for choosing Chinese over other categories…? Smell the odor of her armpits reeking of racism?

In the same application Hannah again demonstrated how she was so ashamed of the offspring’s half Indian origin (must be the dark skin), she used only Ram to register the name of the infant’s father — not Ramachandran. She won’t even give her daughter a genuine Malaysian or Chinese/Indian identity because Shay and Adora are names derived from western sources of interpreting old Jewish places. In other words, Orang Putih.

Regardless, Hannah’s registry of her child remains scandalous not only because of her shamelessness and her racism (the racism of the anti-racist) but especially because, in conflating Anak and Bangsa Malaysia, she completely ignored:

  • (a) that Anak Malaysia is not a physiological category-fact that provides the basis of birth registration and used as an identification tool. There is simply no such thing as Anak Malaysia for a new born and the meaningless in the term raises even more absurd questions: What Anak would be Lim Kit Siang’s father, a Malaysian but born in China? Anak Cina?
  • (b) that Bangsa Malaysia and Anak Malaysia are entirely distinct categories which can only mean different things. The first is a newly fashioned political term. The second is general, colloquial usage to mean a child of Malaysia. It gets worse: how should a child born to Malaysian permanent residents in Australia be called? ‘Anak’ or ‘Bangsa’?

In advocating the politics of DAP/Hannah’s Bangsa politics, Malaysiakini made sure it lied that Hannah was right all along. Yet there was nothing to be right about. After which it again lied that Khairy ever said BN wanted such a sort of politics or if it even sanctioned that kind of usage.

That is, Malaysiakini editors embellished their fraudulent conduct under such terms as ‘see the light‘. Those liberal assholes were simply making things up:

  • (1) that there is ‘vindication’ in the choice of Hannah’s term during Shay’s birth registration because mummy Yeoh used Anak not Bangsa Malaysia.
  • (2) that Hannah is a good, politically far-sighted mother. What she had instead done was to abuse her 6-day old daughter, laundering her for the world to see solely for promoting her own political message — regardless of the veracity of her claims. As mother, that fatty Anglophile has no shame and had proven to be completely irresponsible.

There is an even more insidious message in Hannah’s political laundering: as a nationalist slogan Bangsa Malaysia reminds of Germany’s use of its term Reichsadler during the Hilter’s reign of the Third Reich. “We are Malaysian nationalists,” is what Hannah is implying, whose stupidity couldn’t tell a biological fact from fascist propaganda. Her political ignorance couldn’t tell her there is no such thing as a Malaysian race, just as there is no American race. Nor could she tell the difference between nationality (that is, Malaysian) and Bangsa (which is ethnicity).

Just as there is no physiological fact of a thing called Australian, there is also no such thing as the Melayu race. Malay is a political designation not a race, a designation that is as plain as a stone or a tree standing outside your house.

An illustrative case in point is Zakir Naik, who upon obtaining his citizenship, will almost certainly be classed as Malay when clearly he is of Indian origin. Or, take Ridhuan Tee, whose children would have been categorized as Malay on account of neither biology nor physical birth place but purely because the kids comply with the three-legs of the constitutional definition, of which Islam had been made the overriding condition, far, far more than language and custom today. Going by custom, Hadi Awang would not be Melayu, Ridhuan or Zakir much less.

All that is also to say, Hannah is playing the same Umno game she criticizes for its racism, overlaying her western, Christian liberal values onto her politics in order to paint a picture that she is a good Bangsa woman whereas anybody who refuses the term Bangsa are ‘evil’ and ‘racist’ (her terms). Complicit in spreading those lies and deceptions is, of course, Steven Gan’s Malaysiakini, those Anglophiles from Bangsar.

Hannah, if it isn’t obvious to you by now, was driving square pegs into round holes, wanting to fit her political prejudices into factual reality. She is exactly like the Umno Malays she hates, a hypocrite, adopting the same stratagem in order to win votes and get elected, playing footsie with people’s future and their identities, even her own daughter’s, then talking about unity.

Hannah’s actions have dangerous consequences because all Umno has to respond is simply this: ‘We know what is bangsa. But, tell us, what is it to be Malaysian?

Their answer: ‘See the word Malay in the name Malaysia?

That is, in case that stupid Hannah still doesn’t get it: She will have to masuk Melayu in order to qualify as a Bangsa Malaysia. She has to be fucked by a Malaiyoo.

That being so, isn’t it better therefore to retain segregation and keep to being Chinese? Malaiyoo keep their side, they keep their Islam, their jihad, while we keep ours and stay out of Islam. Isn’t that freedom and a human right?

If, however, Hannah still insists on being Bangsa Malaysia, then by all means. She is even welcomed to slice off a piece off Muniandy’s brown prick and after that her son’s as well. At that rate, she might even turn her entire family Muslim because, if she gets away with her hypocrisy, what’s there to halt her opportunism and racism in order to go after the Malay votes when the Bangsa types run out? That’s Ridhuan Tee bullshit all over again.

A Thambi lectures the Malaiyoo

What happens next…. And why?

See the Malaiyoo beside the Indian? He still needs a thambi’s crutch even to make a stupid argument, but thinks this is all big deal.

*

A Thambi among Malaiyoos

The two elements in Zakir Naik’s remarks — ‘you can come to probe me here’ (sic!) — says a lot about Malaysia, hence Malays, as it is about Zakir: One, Zakir is saying, ‘I have influence in Malaysia, I stay as long as I like’, and two ‘fuck you, India, I can be anywhere, anytime, you can’t touch me’.

First about Zakir: here is an English-schooled Muslim Indian who employs Christian language (lesser evil), Western solipsism (the Self is final arbiter in an election) and Bentham’s Utilitarianism (morality can be counted like grains of sand). It couldn’t be he knows the western reasoning tools and the philosophical underpinnings in his words. But that’s where they had come from: nothing he knows belongs to him, even though all his arguments have been demonstrated — not once but repeatedly — to be false.

Dressed like a contorted minor Englishman, an Indian Anglophile actually, he wouldn’t be out of place in immigrant town Manchester where lives one of Malaysia’s longest running fugitives named Petra Kamarudin. Not only do Malay princes run when trouble catches up with them (remember that Parameswara, or whatever?), they themselves also harbor fugitives.

Here is the rub: Why are Malaiyoos so taken in by this shorty, little brown-skin toad? So what if he is Muslim? So what if he has a beard? Or if he can speaks with a semblance of logicism. It is called syllogism. And goes like this: Both are evil, one is less evil, therefore choose the lesser. Here’s the contradiction: Both are good, one is less good, therefore choose the less good?

Second, about Malaysia. Perhaps, it is just in Malaiyoo DNA, so made completely stupid, first by the Arabs, today by Indians. Malays are a collective legacy of stupidity, done in by Pakistani drafters of the Constitution then by Mahathir Mohamad, and now this….

Ibrahim Ali’s Perkasa — Malay supremacist and xenophobic and yet play hosts to a foreign preacher — is emblematic of the Malay person and mentality completed overrun. It needs only a little toad to bring the Malay in, never mind his podah Sime Darby anneh slant which sounds like a never-ending fart. No wonder Malaysia is today in its present shit.

Before Perkasa there is Mahathir, the Great Malay defender who has so much to say about protecting Malays and about threats of colonization supposedly by Chinese buying Johor property. But, he has nothing to say of an Indian who, before his eyes, is poisoning and seizing hold of the Malay mind, with certain consequences equally as devastating as his 22-year rule. Both men are doing the same thing to the coconut Malaiyoo; both are convinced, you see, they know what’s best for Malays. It’s one coconut to another coconut.

To all banana Chinamen: Leave this fucked-up country when you still got the chance. Christians in the Middle East had to be bombed out of their homes in the Middle East where their ancestors had lived thousands of years. Don’t think the same won’t happen to pendatangs: ask that banana named ‘Pastor’ Koh. He won’t leave, so he disappeared. Or you’d have your throats cut like Bernard Thien. Or C4-ed, like a Mongolian.

The old idea, promoted by Anglophiles, Ahi ‘Rock’ Tan and Liew Chin-Ah-Tong included, that Malaysia is a civilized country just because it has an English past and its laws is so outdated. Zakir Naik is all very English. In fact, he would sit nicely at a PKR dinner table of thambis, next to R. Sivarasa and N. Surendran, and you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between them.

***

A Thambi with a death grip on Malays

If it were up to the Chinese, we won’t ban him from Malaysia. We would send him an Ibrahim Ali invitation, pick him at the airport, lodged him in Brickfields, a cockroach infested hotel next to Jesus Christ, and cater him from a deli bacon for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

All of which is to say: Why the fuck did they make a big deal out of a shorty brown skin thambi?

*

Answer: It’s the Malaiyoo.

Zakir Naik preaching to Malaiyoos then converting a couple of young imbeciles, whether Chinaman or estate Indian, it doesn’t matter, they are done in, in one way or the other. The proselytizing is merely incidental to the ultimate purpose which is served by regional politics and, domestically, fascist Malay oppression of the Chinese. It has to be this. ‘The Malay government may be pro-China, but, we have India as balancer: See! Here he is. Small man, big mouth. Just like it has always been: the Chinese provide the material comforts, money; Indians provide the soul of the Melayu‘.

Which explains why motherfuckers like Kadir Jasin and Mahathir Mohamad keep their silence although Zakir has come again and again pinned with the badge of their sworn enemy named Najib Razak. In their time, too, they had done the same things. This time, Najib’s time, it couldn’t be an accident that, after China, he goes to India (the two countries have fought in the Himalayas), sing some Tamil songs, and then return to welcome a thambi fugitive from India.

Does it make sense? Of course, not. Coming from a Malaiyoo these days, few things make sense. But a calculation doesn’t have to make sense.

There is, of course, the Islam thing. If indeed proselytizing is the goal then that would be better served by a desert camel trader. Imagine, soul and money in combination, a two in one, and walla, a Saudi donor!

The international price in this kind of maneuvering is great because other people don’t think like that. But, still, what the heck. Malaysia is finished anyway. Not only does it produce great MBAs then exporting them as swindlers (Jho Low), it’s a country that kills people without cause. Harboring jihadist preachers would be small beer, therefore; before, they have come from south Thailand, Indonesia, and the Sulu.

The price of not bringing in Zakir is greater though: influence peddling, money, and everything that both entail. Worse is, losing the grip on the Malay soul. Zakir is a reminder to Malays: the coconut tree stretches out to heaven and Umno (and PAS, of course) have the only ladders long enough to reach it.

Make sense? It’s not suppose to; the Malay mind was long ago crippled.

Besides, Umno is running out of options, already losing on hudud, the AmBank credit cards are unbankable, money abroad frozen, so that you have to wonder: How much is Zakir paying — not paid — to stay in Malaysia and to run away from India? Maybe they could use his account; the Bank of Al-Saud will do.

As politics go down, the Malay mind is further paralyzed. This has been Umno’s race formula all along, though unintended but no thanks to the mamak named Mahathir. As the Malay paralysis deepens, Mahathir finds himself handing out more crutches.

The problem is this. Since the Malaiyoo has been overrun by Islamists — how do you get rid of something non-existent? — the next best thing is to drain the sand harboring them. That is, bring in more Zakir Naiks to do the vacuum job.

Zakir is a reminder to Malays, that he, a Muslim, is a fraud, like Najib is a fraud, running from the law; that shorty, brown-skin, in coat and tie, is a thambi actually; he had a history and a past before he gave press conferences in English and began addressing Allah as God the Almighty, not in Arabic s.a.w. He is just like the Malaiyoo today, a conquered soul.

***

Malay oppression in Allah’s name has come to this (below, FMT News), involving some of the most essential things in life, making a living, and those Amanah, PKR and DAP Anglophile and Malaiyoo types will have nothing to say because Kelantan is not their turf and Islam won’t affect the Chinese(?); jangan campur tangan, the motherfuckers say.

We can only seethe with anger? Hadi Awang, again, we swear on fathers’ graves you will pay.

Non-Muslims must abide by Kelantan’s Maghrib shutdown.

And for the third time: Monyet Hadi bin Awang. He lives on a tree and carries a magic Islamic wand. He can make things appear, disappear; gone today, back tomorrow. And the poor Speaker. He isn’t vulnerable to Kelantan magic. He is from Sabah.

Only a Chinese newspaper could have done it, and this goes a long way to help the Malays keep their Malaiyoo. Yet, others, Kadir Jasin for example (below), could only preach; he, the Nusantara Scribe reduced to yada, yada, yada.Hypocrisy, trickery, shenanigans and dishonesty” are, Kadir says, “the worse in human nature.”

Is that all. ‘Worse’, did you say? LOL.

The worse is Malaiyoo Shabudin. No? Not khalwat, Kadir? You are pathetic.

Not Mock Debate. Try Mock Execution

…PAS style, of course.

First, the Mock Debate

PKR’s Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli today questioned if amendments to Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act (Act 355) would ensure that all Muslims are adjudicated fairly under syariah enactments.

In particular, he asked if amendments to Act 355 will embolden religious enforcement officers to take action against transgressors who are members of society’s elite.

“The issue is the need to ensure the syariah enactment is fair to all, but do we have enough resources at the syariah department for that? Enough judges and experts?

“I know who (among Muslim government backbenchers) consume alcohol, and there might be ministers’ children who are co-habitating. Would a religious enforcement officer dare to take action?

“I am aware that I am now speaking outside of the House, but what if there was a sultan or a royal family member who consumes alcohol openly, would an enforcement officer arrest him/her and would he/she be penalised under Act 355?” he asked.

Rafizi said this would cause Islam to be maligned as only the poor get punished while the rich go free.

Syariah enactments in all Malaysian states outlaws consumption of alcohol and sex before marriage for Muslims.

Unmarried Muslim couples who live together also run the risk of being nabbed for “khalwat” (close proximity) as enactment bars unmarried Muslim men and women from being together in private spaces without a chaperone.

‘Room for corruption as judges salary remain low’

Rafizi asked this in tonight’s People’s Parliament session, a mock parliamentary debate on amendments to Act 355 tabled by Marang MP and PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang.

The People’s Parliament session, which was streamed live online via several MPs’ Facebook pages, was called after Dewan Rakyat Speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia postponed debates on the amendments to the next session. …

Rafizi, who took the floor first in the mock Dewan Rakyat session, said the debate was postponed so that media hostile to Pakatan Harapan could demonise them as “anti-Islam”.Hence the mock parliamentary session was held, to allow the rakyat to hear that Pakatan Harapan MPs are seeking clarifications on how this would protect and strengthen Islam.Among them, he said, was how the Act 355 amendments does not raise the salaries of syariah court judges.

He said there is risk of corruption and abuse of power by syariah court judges as “those earning RM6,000 to RM7,000 are allowed to send people to jail for 30 years”.

“Someone with a lower salary given big powers to jail someone for 30 years, such powers if not properly managed opens the doors to abuse,” he said.

The Act 355 amendments seek to raise penalty limit for syariah courts to 30 years’ jail, 100 lashes of the whip and RM100,000 fine.Act 355 now allows syariah courts to impose a maximum penalty of RM5,000, six lashes of the whip and three years’ jail.

Amanah’s Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad also questioned why PAS’ Kota Baru MP Takiyuddin Hassan, who supported Hadi’s motion, spoke of the salary revisions but the actual bill did not include such revision.

“This seems like an eye wash to confuse people as if the amendment is to fix everything but the motion has no such thing,” he said.

Punishments vary between state to stateKhalid also said that the amendments allow unfairness across states in Malaysia because it will mean punishments could vary greatly between state to state. For example, he said, the same crime can be punished with just one lashing in one state but 30 years’ jail in another.

“It is like giving a loaded gun to each state and it is up to the states whether to shoot or not. This is irresponsible,” he said. “This is why we must have a committee to standardise things,” he said.

Khalid said the penalty hike was motivated by the desire to have syariah courts as equal to civil courts which can mete out similarly heavy penalties.

“There is no syariah rationale for this… it is like saying to make the court more powerful, so the penalties must be ‘powerful’,” he said.

He also urged the amendments to instead include less punitive penalties, such as community services to rehabilitate offenders.

Khalid said the bill is not sacrosanct and has been amended three times to date, so he hoped Hadi will amend it further to improve the legislation.

“We do not oppose the effort to strengthen the syariah courts but the amendments have many weaknesses, so we need to debate it and improve it,” he said. Khalid was the last MP to speak in the three-hour session.

***

https://wakeupandlive1.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/shariar-5.jpg?w=500

Amanah and PKR MPs don’t have to create a mock execution, Syariah style, above. It’s the same with all creeds and colors. Only imagine a moment, pulling Kadir Jasin out of that Islamic hole.

*

Next, the Mock Execution

All that about the mock debate is so wrong, in particular this:

We do not oppose the effort to strengthen the syariah courts but the amendments have many weaknesses, so we need to debate it and improve it.

These Oppo MPs are, in effect, saying that RUU355 is fundamentally correct — so Hadi is therefore correct — only mistaken in the wording of its implementation, and that they are liable to be unfair or distorted. The like of Khalid and Rafizi still don’t get it: they more they go into it, the more they play with that desert Arab God, the more their Malaiyoo fingers will get burn.

That, recall, was how everything started: Anwar Ibrahim, Abim, Mahathir Mohamad, PAS.

And here’s the fallacy with which they continue from where Anwar and Mahathir had left off. From Khalid:

It (355) is like giving a loaded gun to each state and it is up to the states whether to shoot or not. This is irresponsible. This is why we must have a committee to standardise things.

All Khalid is saying is, give them a gun but tied to it a piece of paper instructing them when to use. What a stupid Malaiyoo.

It also goes to show this: Malaiyoos didn’t just import an Arab, foreign spirituality, they imported a whole set of value system — along with gun and swords — and all that the system entails which, essentially, is barbarism. It is barbarism, nothing else. Nothing. Even the Huns would be embarrassed.

And the results of those early efforts are already staring at these MPs; today those results are below. And yet Khalid et al still want to play with them. They assume Malays are already totally Arabic and Islamic and what’s supposedly good for Arabian Islam is good for Malays (and so, too, good for politics, good for the vote). Below, are pictures of the Malay faces staring at Rafizi and those debaters:

*

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/vbxaoKYzluM/maxresdefault.jpg

*

Siti Aishah’s case is illustrative. Here is a Malaiyoo who, in spite of being raised by Umno, raised under the umbrella of ketuanan, didn’t pledge allegiance to Tanah airku (to Umno much less), not even some Sultan, but to an Arab barbarian 8,000 miles away and who she knows next to nothing.

Here is typical of a Malaiyoo who had been taught, by motherfuckers like Kadir Jasin, to believe she owe her (a) existence, (b) life and identity, (c) even their bread and butter to Tanah Melayu. Yet she  wants to go off to give up her life to fight some foreign war she knows next to nothing and then to import it, lock, stock and barrel, and killing who? Starting with Malaiyoos of course. Maybe Kadir would be a good target. And all for what? Following every word in the Quran which they can scarcely read in a foreign tongue call Arabic?

This has to be great.

Poor Kadir, seeing his preaching collapse right under his Nusantara feet. What a motherfucking Malaiyoo.

As an aside, Malaiyoos like Rafizi who argue for ‘fair’ 355 implementation, but he still wants to flog and jail elite Malays who drink and co-habitat. Rafizi is no different from people like Hadi; they think alike. The difference is only a matter of degree, in the implementation, not in the perversity and the irrationality in the proposed law.

Those Malays who drink and co-habitat are the only decent humans left in Malay society. Others, like Rafizi and Kadir and Hadi think they are next to Allah because that has been their conduct and attitude, imposing a morality, making crimes out of pure, innocent human affairs.

Here is another argument from the mock debate:

There is no syariah rationale for this (355)…

Answer: Since when was the Syariah, or any religious law, based on Reason, or on rationale?

You must as well try reasoning with Hadi Awang, that piece of dog. Syariah’s reason for existence, the entire Arab purpose, is that the Malaiyoo obey. It exist, fundamentally, to force compliance. Submit!

Why is it that Malaiyoos never stop shooting at themselves in the foot? Look in the mirror, Rafizi, Khalid, and you will see that MPs, like everyone else, are vulnerable to their passions, suffer from debt and depression and at times — most times — would like to be left alone.

In the circumstance, there is only one solution: take the guns away from these barbarians before they murder their daughters, their neighbors, and everybody else.

O! Malaiyoo!

Mock debate? No! Those PAS assholes are better: they want mock executions. If you guys want to follow, remember to bring swords, headscarves, ropes and baskets — baskets are for the heads. Siti Aishah and Shabudin are already on the way there, you see, doing those things in their Islamic minds.

Poste Restante — Letter from Chang’an

Malay Crime and Punishment

Greetings. We write to you from our Motherland, and may this letter find you in good health and at peace. Winter has arrived, and early at that for we had snow the past three days and the weeks before that. Word is that there is going to be two feet of snowfall in another week or so. Yet, if there is ever half a chance, we did rather be back in Malaysia – to join you in warm drink and happy merriment, that is, if drink and merriment are still permitted. Malaysia could be a nation of intellectuals but, daily, it is turned instead into a nation of idiots. Be wary then of the like of Helen ‘Aku Cina’ Ang or Ridhuan ‘Aku Melayu’ Tee, those Chinese posing as Malays – they are so ‘liberal’ – people who live lives somewhere between a kampung clairvoyant and a city snake oil salesman.

But, rest assure that if Khairy Jamaluddin tells you ‘good riddance’ and never to return to Malaysia, it is a good sign. They say this to the Chinese all the time, if you recall, as if Chinese owe them their lives, so they use our identity cards and passports to hold us hostage and treat us like we are lap dogs. But, you know it doesn’t work – not anymore. Now, they tell the same to the Malays as well. Ironic?

For many decades (since Mahathir Mohamad?) Malaysia has not been a good place to be a Malay – it is only that the Malays found this out much later than the Chinese. This means Ali Abdul Jalil will be better off in Sweden. For proof of that, look at Terengganu: Between the shopping mall and the mosque your people choose the first. But those spiteful, malicious scoundrels of bureaucrat-politicians would blame this state of affairs on the malls. Step by step, inch by inch, they contribute to criminalize the Malay life, from the clothes you wear, the places you visit, the music, and to the thoughts you hold. But, why do your people continue to put up with this sort of indignities, suffer this affront on your persons?

In the Zaid Ibrahim polemic ‘Alpha Malays National Organisation’, a scornful and cynical comment from ‘Anonymous’ labeled as ‘idealism’ Zaid’s call for a Malay revolt against the Umno status quo. In making that call, Zaid’s biggest hurdle is neither facing Umno’s ominous government apparatus nor the vitriol of it sycophants (Isma, Mahathir Mohamad, Syed Akbar Ali, Petra Kamarudin, Helen Ang) but this cult of unanimity. It’s a culture that tolerates no argument, no controversy but accepting only consensus and (in Umno’s political language) ‘unity’, by which Umno politicians mean, to stand back-to-back so as to watch out for the Chinaman who they have pictured as perennially trying to steal Malay land and property then profit from them.

Conventional Malaysian and worldwide labels put Indians as argumentative (Amartya Sen wrote about it in the essay The Argumentative Indian); Chinese as greedy, covetous; whereas Malays are laid-back and tolerant. Laid-back perhaps but, to go by Umno general assembly speeches, Helen Ang, the great Malay apologist, wouldn’t be able to find a single tolerant Malay in a crowd of 2,800. Would it then be possible that a compliant, acquiescent Malay culture had permitted the regression of the Malay mind, arriving to its present state, unquestioning and subservient? If true, then it’s small wonder that the Malay life should fall so readily to an advancing and aggressive Arab Islamic culture or to be so easily persuaded by British gentility, with its perverse English laws and customs, and now … to Umno and PAS.

The American writer Leon Wieseltier has argued that levels of dissension make up the barometer of an open, tolerant society: the more there is dissension the better for it since argument is emphatically, he says, man-made. It is only God (and the PAS ulamas and Jakim) that brooks no dissension. This, from Wieseltier, is ingenious:

“The community of contention, the contentious community, is not as paradoxical as it may seem. The parties to a disagreement are members of the disagreement, and they wrestle together for the sake of the larger community to which they all belong…. A quarrel is evidence of coexistence.”

Within this universe of controversy, reflecting a universe of tolerance, lives reason or rationality, the things committed to the discovery of the truth, as opposed to beliefs, superstition actually, and those anti-rationalist cliches (think of Isma and that ‘former Judge’).

“Emotion is private and opaque,” Wieseltier added, “but reason is public and lucid.” He quotes Ovadiah Bertinoror’s remarks: “Only by means of debate will truth be established.” From elsewhere, he quotes again: “Sometimes it is our duty to make a quarrel…. For the sake of truth we are not only permitted to make a quarrel, we are obligated to make a quarrel.”

For Malays, those lines tantamount to this, which in Zaid’s words say, “Be unafraid.” Indeed!

Malay Angst

Yet, being afraid has been least of the Malay problems. Instead, it is fundamentally this – and which one might just as well say of this of Malaysians in general: The Malay has no internal, working mechanism, no philosophical grounds on which to stand on in order to make his decisions, on which to judge his ethics or appraise the injunctions and the entreaties of our time. That is, he has little on which to make a quarrel. Nothing he has, nothing he knows is his own. (Mahathir Mohamad, that piece of cretin, with his provision of economic and social crutches, merely turned the situation worse than it already was.) Which is to also to say, the Malay is permitted no private sphere. And Islam sees to it.

From Islam the Malay life is pre-ordained and every thought and action is already decided beforehand. This helps to explain why the pronouncements from Isma or Perkasa or some bureaucrat-politician constitute as much as banal hogwash even as they seem to sound radical, or ‘extremist’ as we now call it.

When the Malay is permitted no private sphere, how then can be be angry at any thing? Even the Malay anger has to made up, invented, drummed up. So Umno, the Party had, consciously and willfully, for an entire generation and beyond, constructed the Chinese as the Malay enemy so as to feed this Malay emptiness, in much the same way Russian Stalinists and Cambodian fascists feed the people with imaginary enemies – teachers, engineers, scholars, peasants, dancers, music, theatre, biology, science, everything (doesn’t this sound like PAS Kelantan, recently a complete washout, thanks be to ‘god’).

The Muslim Malays are condemned to be anti-human unless they, themselves, filled that void with their own humanity. And to fill his life with his own adat, his ethics, he must first be unshackled from the strictures of Islamic dogmas, from their parsonages, their kampungs, their ulamas and from their politicians. Being unbending – often on account of some abstract, usually absurd, ‘principle’ (think Petra Kamarudin, his son in a lockup, and the policeman who could let out the boy), such Malays have turned out to be monsters. Petra, supposedly a western-minded ‘liberal’, is therefore no different from the doctrinaire ulama; each in their own way both are moralists and both are inflexible and dour, unwilling, or perhaps unable, to accept as natural the human condition, whether good or evil, ossified in their thinking and their morality. Petra takes a dagger with him to political events; the ulama brings with him god … so insecure are these men that they have to employ a weapon and rely on a Pendatang god and to speak loudly to cover their deficiencies.

Mahathir likes to believe he could build ‘Towering Malays’, but these Malays had been constructed on sand – and that imbecile doesn’t even know it! But, to break this causal chain of life requires a struggle, a quarrel, a shakedown to be rid of these people and their doctrinaire ideas that place evil not only in deeds but, worse for it, in thoughts. You might have to move the Malay to stand on rocks.

Here are the contributions of three documents to unshackle the Malay mind from the bindings of Mahathir, Anwar Ibrahim, their petty ulamas and all the others who act like they are prophets sent to save the Malay:

  • (1) Letter from the Eminent 25, Malay Mail, Dec 8
  • (2) Farouk Peru’s reply, Open Letter to 25 Prominent Malays, Malaysian Insider, Dec 8, and
  • (3) Alpha Malays National Organisation (AMNO), Zaid Ibrahim, Dec 8

Malay Manifesto

The Malays are in the throes of an epic quarrel: which is this, neither Umno nor Mahathir Mohamad nor Petra Kamarudin shall have the last word on what it is to be Malay. This is revolutionary thought; a revolution because that challenge stabs at and shakes the perceived foundations of a given Malay identity-set, monopolised by Umno, and which has so far ascribed to the Malay on purely political terms (in the Constitution and in the Mahathir years) and now on Islamic terms as well. Such ways of thinking – Malay supremacism, a race divinely ordained – lead directly to fascism, Islamo-fascism in particular. It was Islamo-fascism that was the undoing of Afghanistan; destroyed, first, by a ragtag bunch of Talibans (no big armies needed there) and after them by Americans. Countries are not sacrosanct; they can be exterminated; recall that patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel. Both the Eminent 25 and Farouk Peru have reason, therefore, to be wary not just of Isma and Umno but in particular their ulamas, apologists and propagandists, online and off.

In their letter – actually a Malay Manifesto – the Eminent 25 protested at how Islam and its laws have been used to govern the Malay life: religious authorities assert their authority beyond their jurisdiction, fatwas are issued in violation of the Constitution and supremacist Muslim-Malay organizations make life hell for everybody. Under Shariah, the most common, ordinary human activities – as pedestrian as playing music, having sex and family conduct – are turned into ‘crimes against the state’ (since it is the state that makes the arrest and initiates the prosecution).

The Malay life wasn’t any thing like this before, a point which Farouk Peru makes very well in reply to the Eminent 25: there is a Malay version of Islam and there is an Arabic version. This is to suggest that, before Islam, there has been the Melayu. The Malay had preceded Islam and changed it to suit the Melayu in him; it was never the other way around. “The Malay version of Islam,” Farouk went on, “had always been tempered by our own local culture and so we retained that beautiful spirit of moderation and acceptance.”

Farouk had rightfully made a distinction between ‘local’ and ‘Islamic’ culture, thus drawing a schism between geography and religion, between earth and heaven, between nature and god. The first was natural to the Melayu; the second was simply imported then acquired. In creating that division, Farouk returns to his Melayu roots, to the muddy banks of the riverine, paddy life, the humid, water-logged jungle forests, the estuaries from which shrimps and cockles were once harvested. Everywhere around the Melayu, the world brims with life. Once we compare that world to the roving desert camel people then we are likely to agree with Farouk.

In the beginning is the Melayu; then came the ‘Word’ and he became the Malay. The Melayu is a naturalist, a botanist and biologist. The Malay Ahmad Mustafa Babjee: “All my life, I have been curious about nature. I can sit and water nature work for hours…. A bundle of flowerheads of a wild palm can conjure in my min, strands of DNA with their bases, or a bunch of rosary hanging in a shop in Medina or an exotic ear-ring for a go-go dancer.” One is unlikely to find such a speaker in the desert, but Ahmad Mustafa is one of the signatories in the Eminent 25 letter.

Malay Pendatang

Abraham is then a pendatang, and so it is with his kind of Heaven and God; they are desert inventions, 1,400-years-old, 10,000 km away, where the Melayu could know nothing about, much less played any part in its religious development. Thus, when politicians and bureaucrats, egged on by their ulamas, force feed the Malay life with this desert creed, usually of their own interpretation, alien to the Melayu’s mud-river, tropical kampung origins, it is small wonder the Malay do not turn up for Friday mosque in Terengganu and Kelantan. In time, Umno and PAS will make this absence a criminal offense.

Once Malay-ness is framed inside an ancient Islamic legal straight-jacket, there is little, if at all any, to be done to mitigate the full brunt of Shariah the modern Malays must face. The Eminent 25 could only ask, an appeal tinged by an apologia – “…at the end the day…, we want Islamic law” not for, unlike PAS, for its politics but “to meet the highest standards of justice…” They asked for Najib Razak’s personal intervention then for a review of the entire body of Shariah laws, and for reason and debate to prevail over the tyranny of the ulama clergy.

Yet, none of their suggestions are new. On this point, the Eminent 25 revealed that there was an internal government review of the Shariah laws in 1999 and nothing came of it. Instead, as the years rolled by, things went the opposite direction: stepped-up intrusion into people’s lives, a marked increased in criminalizing the most banal, everyday human conduct. In the circumstances, the Eminent 25 letter, no matter how well-meaning, could do nothing more other than to plea. How? How had the Eminent 25 managed to box themselves in?

To understand that, “we must understand the nature of Shariah law,” Farouk explained. “Shariah law is not designed to play second fiddle to any other legal system. It was designed with the firm notion of supremacism…. It will grow and ultimately subsume whatever system with which it is co-existent.” Which is to also to say, Islamic supremacism isn’t a system of just political power and rule, it ends up as an institution for domination, hence, exploitation.

Such thoughts are, by any measure, astonishing confession from a Malay – not that we had never seen it coming; we, neither the Melayu nor the Chinese, would bring this to admit it to ourselves. Recall that in the book Among the Believers, V.S. Naipaul wrote about this phenomenon, describing how the Malay/Indonesian life had been completely overtaken by Arabian Islam. One sees this happened to Anwar Ibrahim and his ABIM cohorts. But, Islamic supremacism dovetails so well into the Ketuanan Melayu ideology, so you can tell why Islam continues to be used by PAS at first, adopted by Mahathir and now followed up with a vengeance by Umno and Najib Razak.

Farouk’s suggestion for ‘complete secularisation’ – removal of the Shariah courts (which he considers as a historical anachronism) and to de-fang all the Islamist bureaucrats – strikes at the political heart of a religious problem. Which is to go back to the Malays with the agenda that their lives can be better lived if they knew where to begin: the shopping malls will naturally empty if, on their Fridays afternoons, the Malays knew how to better spend those endless, vacant hours that even God is useless to fill.

Malay Conduct

Recovering the Melayu character is not sufficient reason to cut off the legs of Islamic supremacism. Another, equally urgent task is to halt the Malay being from sliding into utter bestiality and inanity because, once you believe yourself to be supreme, what else is there left for you to pursue? Indolence and contentment take over. A thing as necessary as work is then given to others, ‘sub-contracted’ as they say, so that Malaysia, in creating a regime of exploiting, cheap foreign labor in nearly every field of enterprise, as basic as health care and municipal services, is surely not a stand-alone phenomenon unrelated to modern culture, our values, ethics and norms of conduct. This kind of life is forced and unnatural.

Kua Kia Soong recently wrote about the institutionalisation of racism – that silly Ketuanan thing – to the degree that it has become a norm. Even ‘moderates’ (such as the Eminent 25) would accept preferred treatment of Malay in fields of commerce, education, religion and other fields; they plea not for the dismantling of those institutions but only one, that is, Islamic power be reigned in, by which the legs of the ulamas be cut off, from knees down it seems. In that conclusion, and this includes Farouk’s deduction as well, such a proposal is largely administrative in nature – whittle down the Jakim staff, for example, and starved them of funding.

But this kind of remedy does nothing to sever Islam’s political, moral and religious backing that stand at the back of, and giving impetus, to the insane thinking that powers and which provides the doctrinal foundation for the like of Isma, Perkasa, and even the ulamas. What is their thinking if not Malay supremacism? Face it: Islam is bundled as a tool of Ketuanan, and it is a very potent one at that.

Here, however, is their problem: They can’t use Islam to touch us, the Chinese (and Hindu Indians). With Islam, Ibrahim Ali can make a lot of noise, or the Syariah could rob the Hindu of their dead or abduct a Chinese child from her Penang school then convert her, but all that’s at the peripheral. In the main, it is the Malays who must face the full force of hudud, so that, as they say, the rooster is now back home to roost.

If you accept this line of argument then you must also accept its logical conclusion, that Ketuanan doctrine, hence institutionalised racism, is at the root of Islamic power and its rise. Farouk was in error to attribute that power only to its moral, political and religious standing (the Syariah does not play second fiddle to any other legal systems), which then puts you into a bind on how to unbundle it. The ultimate source of its power, in Malaysia and among the Malays is, one dare say, the Ketuanan. This conclusion would explain what one reads about: why PAS, in ruling Kelantan and Kedah, sets Malay quotas higher than Umno and that the two seem to get along so well and that the object of Malay ‘unity’ is a perennial topic. The Chinese have live for so long and have endured so well under institutionalised racism, it doesn’t matter one way or other if that stays or goes. In their Daoist-Confucianist way of thinking, the Malay need no institutional support if he is supreme; it shows naturally. But, to hand him made-by-Mahathir crutches is to admit failure and weakness, and that’s even before trying. Crutches for helplessness and misfortune is a different thing altogether.

Xiaodi apologise this letter has gone on for too long. You can see where the letter takes you, that is, where its conclusion lays. For the sake of brevity, let this be said: The Malay revolution has to go deep. Only then it is sustaining and meaningful.

Ali Abdul Jalil, poor chap, exiled in Sweden, is but a manifestation of what the Malay is doing to the Malay over causes that are man-made not ordained and this goes back to the Malay raison d’etre. The Eminent 25 do not call themselves the Eminent 25 Malaysians but Eminent 25 Malays, suggesting to the Chinese to mind their own business. The Chinese will and has no reason to bother if Malays gather in Dataran Merdeka to throw stones at another Malay. It may be true that only Malays should solve Malay problems but what if the root of those problems lay not in just the Malays alone but it the conduct between them and the others, the Chinese in particular?

Umno, pre-Mahathir, was far less mindful of Islam but this instead grew in the zealousness of Mahathir’s anti-Chinese bigotry until we arrive at the situation we are today. PAS by itself would play lip-serve to hudud, but ruling with those DAP and PKR infidels it turns with lunacy towards Islam. The same appears to be the situation when Umno was singularly dominant but with Malay power divided three ways, it acts differently. But, this argument is empirically false: Umno sees, and hence asserts, its power only sometimes in relation to other Malay parties (all are Malays after all). But Umno’s policy conduct, moving between the crest and the bottom, like a roller coastal ride, have always been held in accordance with its relationship with the Chinese in particular and Barisan in general. They treat humans much like Islamists treat dogs. Should we, as Chinese, do nothing in the circumstances? What if the Muslim laws intended by PAS or Umno or the ulamas usurp then replace simply human decencies? Are we, the Chinese, to sit on our hands while watching your sisters dragged, screaming, to the stone execution pits?

If the Malay is to redress his religious dilemma, he must also act, politically, on Chinese-Malay relations within Malaysia. Good relations with China is but a pretense and a bad substitute for those relations; worse for it, it doesn’t work. Religious problems are for the Malay to act – as it is Zaid’s call to free Malays from ancient and foreign Islamic strictures – that is within his power. But if his intent is moderation, which is to say his mental constitution, his heart, his freedom, then he must first establish and acknowledge the roots of the immoderateness. You should well know that in religious morality, in Islam and Christianity in particular, the individual is never sacrosanct; only God is. (We, the Chinese, are raised to believe it is the other way around.) So they sacrifice the woman in the stone pits so as to appease their gods and to abolish punishment – recall what our western-minded judges use to tell prisoners: to inflict punishment so as to abolish it once the lesson is served to all. But, dear Melayu, what do you believe? When tyranny is committed in the name of your Allah, what then do you say? Tell us, what does your adat say?

Peace be with you,

小弟

Title reads in English: 1MDB Audit Report

*

This is the main part of the message from P D:

Thank you SO much for sharing this information! I’m working on translating some 1MDB papers and this is proving incredibly helpful. Would you have any of the other chapters available in English to read, so as to get a more complete overview of the audit?

*

Reply

Short answer, No.

Nor, so it appears, anybody else. Sarawak Report (SR), which should be accessible from your side, has the the entire report (above) by Malaysia’s Jabatan Audit Negara (National Audit Department) in its original Malay. (Note that the Audit Report is classified Confidential — ‘Rahsia’ in Malay — so that possession of it is liable to criminal prosecution — in Malaysia.) SR had promised (promises, promises, promises…) to translate the whole thing but looks like Clare Brown hadn’t gone round to it. Or, had given up.

Here is a suggestion: go to SR. Download the Report’s eight chapters, copy then paste them on Google Translate. That way, you at least get a gist of what’s in those Malay papers.

This reply is also made public in the hope that some reader might have the English translations of the Department’s report or part thereof. If so, kindly assist and point us to them, online of course. For that purpose, the Comments section has been activated: naturally, the origin source of your information will be kept confidential.

For those in Malaysia, SR’s mirror site is: http://ec2-52-77-145-248.ap-southeast-1.compute.amazonaws.com/

Hope this helps.

The Western Social Order

In the above diagram, top half, is a popular mythology, cultivated by the West and still widely in use (at Syed Akbar Ali for example). It shows the western proclivity for looking at life with linearity — everything goes along and are plotted on a straight line. There is a beginning and there is an end. The same sort of bias is found in the diagram below, showing the historical progress of human civilization.

But, what’s wrong with it?

The answer is found in three words, ‘progress’, ‘human’ and ‘civilization’. Simple, straightforward anthropological evidences are twisted then given a social order from the only viewpoint, a western, Judeo-Christian one, that rules intellectual thought today. And isn’t that order biblical? Therein is a homo sapien, with the so-called name Jesus — a nothing after all, but a hominoid monkey-related specie, if he even exist — is marked in red and takes center stage. Everything is therefore ordered either before or after him. To do that, all that was required was to spin some fairy tales around him, and those tales are collectively called the Bible.

Such a sort of perverse thinking has had profound implications: where Western knowledge — especially in religion — had spread deep and wide, local populations began thinking like white people. They become DAP and Malaiyoo Anglophiles (Mahathir Mohamad, Najib Razak, Shahudin Yahya, Anwar Ibrahim, Lim Kit Siang, Hannah Yeoh, and countless more).

The West Discovers Humanity

https://www.thenation.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/stuurman-humanity-illo-otu-img.jpg

…and still can’t find the human in it.

For much of history, strangers were routinely classified as barbarians and inferiors, seldom as fellow human beings. The notion of a common humanity was counterintuitive and thus had to be invented. Siep Stuurman traces evolving ideas of human equality and difference across continents and civilizations from ancient times to the present. — Book synopsis on the Invention of Humanity.

*

Counterintuitive? Perhaps to White people, Christians. But never to us.

*

Dutch historian Siep Stuurman presumes too much. The consequence to which — and these are to be found in his book (cover photo above) — is to further the mythology that there has always been a human quest for a ‘common humanity’ and that this is universal.

(But, of course, only in the West are found the answers. That is, White people today are cleverer than monkeys, more cultured. It used to be that their culture and their make-up are superior to other peoples instead of monkeys.)

Stuurman named two ancients, Herodotus and Sima Qian ((司马迁 135 or 145BC – 86BC), as his authority on the enduring notions of humanity, which he attempts to trace back by 2,000 years or more. But, he was wrong that Sima contributed to shape Chinese ideas of humanity.

Sima had lay the ground for Chinese identity, true, but it was in the daodejing 道德经, from Laozi, perhaps not alone, 400-500 years before Christ, that marshal the prevailing ideas then and germinated a philosophy into what has become known today as Confucian humanity that’s embedded in Chinese culture.

(And for fuck sake, don’t bother asking LKS what is Chinese culture. You might as well ask a pig because then he will answer you to say it has to do with qing ming and Chinese new year. Tian-ah. Like Mahathir, he’s another stupid old man.)

Stuurman’s failure begins in the beginning: he assumes there is a naturally-ordered state known as humanity. Like the Christian voodoo ideas of geocentricity, everything in life will gravitate towards it.

Then, in contradiction to that premise, he argues that inequality, as a condition of humanity, is a pure social construction. If inequality was artificially constructed then it could be deconstructed. More to the point, if inequality is artificial so, too, must equality. If such human conditions are entirely social constructs, why does it matter which way either one goes?

His Judeo-Christian bias get more pronounced. When some societies look upon themselves as superior to ‘Others’, it infers, Stuurman argues, a common standard in humanity in which those ‘Others’ are measured. As evidence, he cites the Greek Herodotus and Sima, both of who in their writings wrote of foreign societies that ‘seem’ remarkably like their own. Sima never meant it in that way. Because either Stuurman doesn’t know Chinese or he is inserting his own prejudices into Chinese thought; he was making it up.

Here is where Stuurman’s Judeo-Christian liberal prejudices show, applying his default, political correct bias of making equality as if it was a god-given state when it is not. People eat, fuck, defecate and die. Those are common and equal, yes.

Chinese classical history mentioned the makings of the Five Barbarians 五wu-hu. In Sima’s shiji 史记, the court scribe noted the savagery of the xiongnu (that is, 匈奴, general term for nomadic tribes north of the Great Wall, one of which is predecessor of Genghis Khan and today’s Mongolians). Although the term hu (胡) is commonly translated as ‘barbarians’, the term used then and by Sima had no such western, moral pejorative. Those people, even by the standards then, were ‘wild, reckless and foolish‘ the three adjectival descriptions contained in the word hu. The xiongnu were barbarians in any objective, sense of human-ness but stripped of Stuurman’s liberal morality.

Clearly, Stuurman is pile-driving into the past, today’s liberal, Christian moral standards to make fit the central thesis in his book, which is, there is a thing called ‘common humanity’ that is also universal in character. That humanity, Stuurman insists, has an international appeal. For the fact it has persisted for millennia is self-evident, he argues, culminating in the Rights of Man declaration in a UN Charter and the US constitution.

From Stuurman’s racism and under his pen has flowed another form of imperialism: humanity is sequestered as another Western march in the linear progression of civilization.

A pivotal part in Stuurman’s failure is, to even begin from the beginning: What’s it to be human, from which the word humanity is derived. What is the minimal definition of human?

The answer, of course, depends: shall we give the biological definition or the anthropological? How about the cultural answer? (In case you are unaware, the Chinese has one.)

Regardless, here, we are on quick-sand territory because the western answer to it is as morally spurious as it is varied. The Chinese answer is straightforward: look around you, look at the world, at nature, then look at ourselves. It is there and it is not; it looks back at you so that, at the minimum, the human requires another human simply to exist, to be, and to know itself.

All that alone says a lot, and we should stop there, excepting to say this: An ape by itself is an ape; but humanity is the sum of one human being and one human being. That’s the principal idea, in which is contained the germ of humanity — that is, to be humane — which written in hanzi is, humans (radical ⺅) + two  (二) to make this 仁. No god in between, you see.

When two persons living together — not God — provide the basis for humanity then Eden and biblical fairy tales lose their shine. They fall into disuse, and so the fictitious notion that all men are created equal by God becomes as stupid as stupid does. Stuurman’s book The Invention of Humanity (Harvard University Press) is an attempt to rewrite those fairy tales, one to fit his neo Judeo-Christian prejudices and next to fit the enlarged boundaries of Eden to include Chinese and the conquered, devastated souls of South and North America.

We, the Chinese, reject this sort of thought imperialism. Stuurman discovered nothing, because there was no human mold, no blueprint for the discovery.

Daoists and Confucians knew that all along (the evidence to which, below): humans are cultivated till death; humanity has to be taught, also till death. Those that aren’t cultivated and taught keep their state-of-nature — they remain barbarous.

Splendid’ book, did you say, Michael Walzer? Both of you would make great apologists for ISIS barbarians — barbarians even by the standards of the xiongnu Huns, who were, after all, only after silk, land and women. Try talking to barbarians about your ‘common humanity’. Ya, after that, tell the souls of the dead at their gravestones. Aiya

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/ed/Mawangdui_LaoTsu_Ms2.JPG/220px-Mawangdui_LaoTsu_Ms2.JPG

The daodejing 道德经, above, first published around 500 BC. In the absence of modern paper print, many ancient text had to be copied by hand. Of three earliest daodejing scripts unearthed in China, the one above, found in Mawangdui, was dated about 200 BC. At the time of the Mawangdui publication, the zhuangzi 莊子 was also released.

Those two provide the foundation ideas in Daoism that, in turn, lay the ground for the rise and popularization of Confucianism in East Asia. Still, both schools of thought remain, having changed little since, in contrast to Aristotlean ideas that were subsequently woven into Christian voodoo and in western philosophy.
