Excerpt from Malaysiakini:
That time of the year, where folks dressed in white Baju Melayu, red samping and songkoks congregating at the Tun Hussein Onn Hall in PWTC in their thousands and passionately indulging in verbal trashing of the opposition political parties, has arrived.
MCPXIt is the “Umno season”, where in each of the 59 years the party has convened its annual general assembly, the tradition is to begin with waves of oral shelling fired from the trenches of the party’s youth wing.
This year is no exception when delegates of the youth wing kicked off the debate session with scathing attacks, often with racial overtones, on Pakatan Rakyat leaders.
Well I tell you that it is actually wrong and it turned out that Gerombolan United Malays National Organisation actually instigated some things that is happening. Instigating, yes but after that accusing the innocent party for responsible for something. Or shall I say, walking away scott free.
First of all, Malays are not under threat. Never under threat. It's just the statement bamboozles whoever that reads their controlled-media. Back after March 8, the hardcore ones said that the March 8 thing is like May 11 1969 and the losing of 2/3rds majority means that Malays under threat?
That's way bullshit because most of the problems were self-instigated:
1. UMNO actually instigated the constituitional crisis in the 1980s and sensationalized the 1993 one with the event started by a bad apple: the Sultan of Johor assaulting hockey coach Douglas Gomez with its media spin.
2. In the Penang crisis, the whole thing was started by UMNO Bukit Bendera man Ahmad Ismail (who whacked the non-Malays). He and the BN partners attacked the Tanjung Bungah assemblyman and another case in point, parking moneies in Tanjung Bungah in which some of them do not go to the City Council but Ahmad Ismail's pockets.
3. From Malaysia Today -
In the beginning, the Sultan of Perak was actually not in favour of sacking Nizar. When Nizar had his audience with the Sultan, His Highness was actually quite receptive to the idea of dissolving the State Assembly so that new state elections could be held. But His Highness got cold feet after Najib visited him and reminded Tuanku that he would be jeopardising his throne if he took Pakatan Rakyat’s side in the Perak Constitutional Crisis.
Yes, that’s right. Najib threatened the Sultan and reminded His Highness that his future lies in the hands of Umno. And Najib has the gall to say that Umno is the defender of the crown. Bullshit! I know what happened. And that is why I spoke in defence of the Sultan of Perak -- and many Malaysia Today readers whacked me because of that. But I also asked Nizar to hold his ground and not back down even if it results in a Constitutional Crisis.
I don't really think that these guys got their facts right. They claim to protect the rights of Malays and monarchy but there are facts proven otherwise. Beating into submission is something that will have to be tried to get them see the right and correct view, neither partisan.
And then again, Hisham, what are you saying, man? Black sheep and traitor. Hey, clean up yourself first before you tell others!
