"Something is rotten in the state of Denmark"
If you are product of the colonial education system you would know where that came from. If you are from that era and you don't know than screw you.
Let me expand a little on the quotation "something is rotten in the state of Denmark". As some of you would know it came from Shakespeare's play "Hamlet" which was one of the many books of literature taught at secondary school level. During my time literature was a compulsory subject but I understand in later years it was made optional.
These are metaphors and similes widely used by Shakespeare in most of the plays he wrote during his time that makes his allegories original, opulence and boldness of imagery.For the uninitiated the phrase does not reflect the actual meaning.
So! What does "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark" mean? I am sure those of my ilk would know the meaning but this writing is not directed at them, it's for the young and restless punks, who think the world of themselves but have little gray matter and worldly wisdom to show. For those with tunnel vision and easily influenced by propaganda and falsehood, the ultimate moron like the one below who came to my blog with his foul mouth and posted nasty comments:
kepala babi punya cina bangsat hantu laut, mampos la kau dari bumi melayu ini. pegi jahanam kau ke negeri china. Kalau dah banyak makan babi macam ni la.
dear my kuat makan babi foe, kafir zimmi, bila la kau ni nak mampos?Anyway, let's get down to the nitty-gritty, the meaning of "Something is rotten in the state of Pakatan Rakyat" meaning " Something is not right, rife with errors and falsehood, leading to suspicion of motive"
That's right "suspicion of motive" How many times have Pakatan leaders been caught lying, fabricating stories, doctoring photos and dissimulating the truths? The whole outfit have become corps de ballet of falsehood.
From spreading lies that most UMNO members and Penawar want Najib out, to driving a wedge between Najib and his deputy, to Rosmah's RM24 million diamond ring and now to Rosmah's daughter's mother-in-law a member of the Russian mafia.
Najib's daughter is marrying the son not the mother, who is divorced from the husband, anyway.
Raja Petra's son is a drug addict so are one or two of my cousins. Are we drug addicts by association? I am not sure whether these proponents of high moral ground are morally upstanding themselves. More often than not it is always the worst that tried to better the bad.
Pakatan leaders are very talented in shit-stirring, lying and rabble-rousing to incite the people to go against the government.Even the religious Nik Aziz has gone over board by calling Bayan Baru MP Zahrain Mohd Hashim as "sampah". Short of calling him "sampah masyarakat" which I believe is what he intended.In a more matured democracy he would either have to apologise or there would be calls for him to resign.
If you do not want to respond to a challenge, it's best that you keep quiet instead of resorting to name calling, particularly, if you professed to be a man of God.It could well be the idiosyncrasies of sense of infallibility and old age that Nik Aziz is suffering from.
With the incessant attacks on Najib I can only deduce Pakatan leaders are afraid of him and his boundless effort to make sure a big win for BN in the 13th General Elections.
It's psychological, you don't try to wear down your enemy if you are not afraid of him and is not a big challenge to you.Read Sun Tze's "Art Of War" it's somewhere in his military masterpiece.
That's exactly what PR leaders are afraid off.Winning the next elections may be harder than what they perceived.
