If there are any of you out there that still doubts that what UMNO wants is a Malay Malaysia then I must ask where were you last Sunday when God was giving out brains in Dataran Merdeka–because you are sorely in need of that!
In the things they say, in the things they do, in the things they promise to do and in the things they aspire to – all that UMNO does overtly and covertly - points to one matalamat: Malaysia for the Malays!
Nothing, not even the loss of the popular vote in the last general elections, will detract them from what they know will ensure their place in government for a very very long time. Another half a century perhaps, maybe more, once they put in place a Malay Malaysia!
And if any of you still doubt that UMNO wants a Malay Malaysia then you need to start thinking outside the box that UMNO has built around you. Start thinking that maybe, just maybe, Prime Minister Najib, Muhyiddin, Mahathir and their political peers within UMNO are in on the scam! The scam that equates the 1Malaysia that they talk about to be what they want the public to think what UMNO is working towards when in reality the Malay Malaysia is really their matalamat.
As a Malay I am not embarrass that UMNO is doing this. Why should I be? UMNO has never claimed to champion the Chinese, the Indians or any other race except the Malays. Was it not UMNO that insist on Ketuanan Melayu and the privileges for the Bumiputras? For as long as I can remember there has been no attempt by UMNO to open UMNO to other races. Yes they are part of the Barisan Nasional coalition but even in that coalition they make no attempt to be anything else but UMNO – which means that members of the coalition kowtow to UMNO. Not kongsi, not kautim but kowtow to UMNO. The Barisan Nasional is just another means to realized UMNO stated ends of a Malay Malaysia.
So where do we go from here? What is the future for non-Malays in a Malay Malaysia?
Do I need to answer this? Do I need to tell you that UMNO will return stronger and better prepared in the next general election? Do I need to tell you that the arrogance, greed and duplicity of UMNO towards non-Malays will intensify not abate? That Perkasa, Jawi, the Suruhan Jaya Pilihan Malaysia, Rela and all the other UMNO serving weapons for their Malay Malaysia will be perkemaskan to be more effective and more destructive in their attempts to rid Malaysia of the non-Malays? Or do you all already know this?
Do you already know this and started to look at your options? Options that includes Pakatan Rakyat, Singapore, Australia, the UK, Canada and maybe even Europe? Yes I suggest you do look at these options seriously if you have the means to do so.
Of course Pakatan Rakyat will be the way to go for those of you who do not have the means to consider anything else but please do not say that you are reluctant to leave your Tanah Tumpah Darahku. Why give your loyalty to a Malay Malaysia that does not want you to be around?
The next question will be what of the Malays who do not want a Malay Malaysia? I am one of them and I left over thirty years ago. I have been back off and on – more off than on – but what I see happening in Malaysia told me that what I decided thirty years ago would still stand. There are other Malays like me who have drifted away from Malaysia over the years and UMNO is the better for us being gone. No, that Razak Baginda is not one of us….he is a coward of the highest order! He is in a self-imposed exile with RM500 million of money that rightly belongs to the Malay Malaysia.
And so the world still turns. Look at the world as it is, not as you want it to be or what you would like it to be. Perish the thought that a Malay Malaysia will not happen. UMNO has already taken it past the half way mark. Already the Malays make up over sixty percent of the Malay Malaysia’s population that UMNO has diligently been working towards – past the half way mark and counting!
Now that they have been given a wake up call at the last election when they lost the popular vote, guess what UMNO will do next? What is me worry? I am a Malay am I not? It is you non-Malays that have to decide what you can, should or want to do…..and God help you there. Amen!
