Why is Anwar Ibrahim courting supports from the non-Malays? Because he has little grassroots support with the Malays and he knew relying wholly on the support of the Malays through PKR is not possible because many Malays do not see PKR as a Malay based party or capable of looking after Malay interests. He needs PAS to galvanise the Malay supports for him.
Let's face it communal politics and race-based political parties are not going to go away, not so soon, anyway.As a matter of fact, Pakatan Rakyat has, over the past two years, done more harm to peace and stability that divide the various races than the BN has for the past 50 years.
Anwar Ibrahim and Zaid Ibrahim are day dreamers if they think multi-racial party and their version of Malaysian Malaysia is going to be a viable proposition, at least not now. The country is more divided now than before.
To prove that they are serious and meant what they say about equality for all the races, a truly Malaysian Malaysia, I challange them to dissolve DAP, PKR and PAS and form a single multi-racial party and fight the next general elections under this one umbrella.If not better put your money where your mouth is.
The rise of Anwar Ibrahim and Pakatan Rakyat was at the expense of foregoing racial harmony and political cooperation of the different races in the country nurtured by the BN government for over 50 years.
The good old days of peace, stability and prosperity are gone.The good old days when Ahmad, Ah Long and Samy can sit on same table and have nice cups of 'teh tarik' and not touch anything on race and religion are gone. The good old days when Chinese were happy to get fair share of the economic pie and the Malays don't feel deprived and the Indians never felt marginalised are gone.Tell me who started it?
There are corruptions in the government, in the ruling party that needed to be changed, we all know that, but is that reason enough to split the people, cause racial tension and endless political bickering.
Malaysians are now coached to be more defiant, show no respect for each other, break the law and even revile the sultans and Agong if they have to and that's what they called freedom,equality and Bangsa Malaysia.
The recent attack on the Sultan of Perak by a blog associated with some leaders of the oppositions shows how far they would go to fulfil their desperation for power. Civil society is no more civil.They have been used to pursue the opposition's political agenda.They are so intoxicated with greed for power they are prepared to destroy the peace and stability of the nation under the pretext of peaceful demonstrations, a brand and brainchild of Anwar Ibrahim who knew without constant protests, civil disobedience and street demonstrations his name would be on the back burner and soon forgotten.
Anwar's must constantly churn out punitive publicity to portray him as the innocent victim of conspiracy by UMNO and BN, anything less would mean his sympathy support would evanescent from the people's mind.
Why has Najib condoned the Umno-inspired hysteria and gunning for Loke Siew Fook for insulting the Perak royalty and Islam when these allegations are completely groundless?
That's what Lim Kit Siang has to say about the offending article attacking the Sultan of Perak without himself knowing the truth.Instead of condemning it, as usual, he plays the blame game and called it UMNO-inspired hysteria.He should have said it was Malay-inspired hysteria because their Sultan has been insulted.
It is common knowledge for those who is familiar with the blog 'Might Of The Pen' that it is supporting Pakatan Rakyat political ideology which is nothing wrong as this is a free country and you can support, follow or join any political party you fancy.
To ignore and pretend as if insulting the Sultan is a small matter goes to show the arrogance and chauvinistic attitude taken by Lim.
This grand old coot was quick to condemn Utusan Malaysia and also condemned DPM Muhyiddin Yassin for saying Malay rights should be protected when, he, himself is a big culprit in stirring up racial issues.
Another of his repudiation of Najib. Among all the opposition leaders this man has the most efficient propaganda machine.Mostly noises with no substance.He is the Joseph Goebbels of Pakatan Rakyat and should be made Minister of Propaganda if Pakatan do win the next general elections.
DAP is known as a Chinese party,PKR is a pariah party,PAS is an Islamic party and UMNO a Malay party.What is so wrong with that ?
If the Malays are with PAS, why worry, they will be with PAS.
If PAS is not going to protect them the Malays might just return to UMNO.What is wrong with that too.
So, please, Mr Lim stop raising all the racial bullshits that first started by you and your cohorts and expect others to keep quiet.
The privilege is not only yours to shout, others can shout back too.
