O dear GOD, I should have known that I would never be able to understand Tun Dr Mahathir. After all I am just an old Bugis seeing out my last few years of life quietly in Adelaide while he is a first class idiot. And if idiots could fly, PWTC would be busier then Heathrow!
I woke up this morning to this:
Dr M warns of Singapore fate for Kg Baru Malays
January 11, 2011
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 11 - Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed claimed today there are signs Malays could lose their voice in government, and issued a warning that the Kampung Baru Malay community here could suffer the fate of their ethnic cousins in Singapore who are scattered around the republic.
The former prime minister wrote in his blog that while Malaysia is being governed by a Malay majority government that cares for the fate of Malays, “let us not be so sure that there will never be a government where the voice of Malay representatives is removed.”
He writes in his blog “Hari ini Kerajaan Malaysia dianggotai oleh majoriti orang Melayu yang prihatin terhadap nasib orang Melayu. Janganlah kita yakin tidak akan wujud Kerajaan di mana suara wakil Melayu tenggelam hapus. Tanda-tanda ini boleh berlaku sudah pun ternampak.”
Translation: “let us not be so sure that there will never be a government where the voice of Malay representatives is removed.”
And the BN government talks about 1Malaysia? First the realities. This is Malaysia:
Estimated Population in Malaysia for2007.
27.17 million (93% citizens; 7% non-citizens)
Malaysian citizens comprise:
The Malays totally – I repeat totally – dominate numerically. The Malays control the Armed Forces. PDRM. RELA and any other organization that is tasked with looking “after the security” of the nation. The Army camps are located strategically to ensure that they have control over all major urban areas. PDRM have Police Stations positioned to enable the Police to have effective control over all the population (especially the non-Malays) in the urban and rural areas.
BN is UMNO and UMNO is BN. Pakatan Rakyat understand that without PAS and PKR it is dead – and both these parties are Malay dominated parties.
Mahathir tells us that “Tanda-tanda ini boleh berlaku sudah pun ternampak.”
These ‘tanda tanda” of the Malays losing their voice has happened on whose watch? Was it not UMNO that has control over all things political since independence? Was is not you that was Prime Minister for over 22 of the past 30 years?
Or are the Malays losing their voice because of what has been done by UMNO under your leadership in the past 22 years? That instead of strengthening the Malays race what you did was to erode every dignity and integrity of your own race by the policies implemented by your government? By the corruption, avarice and abuse that your government and UMNO practices you imposed upon the Malays the burden of shame for having to answer to the other races for the abuses of your self and UMNO? And you talk about the Malays losing their voice in Malaysian politics?
No Tun, you are to be blamed. That you now say that the Malays might lose their voice in this country is a damming indictment of yourself by yourself, of what abuse you and UMNO have perpetrated upon the Malays. Cukup lah Tun. Age does not always bring wisdom. Sometimes age comes alone. In your case this is never truer.
