YOU CAN ONLY FOOL SOME OF THE PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME, AND ALL OF THE PEOPLE SOME OF THE TIME, BUT YOU CANNOT FOOL ALL OF THE PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME...ABRAHAM LINCOLN.
And this needs to be said.
Once upon a time I knew almost all of the PKR personalities who are around today. They were once members of Umno. I once knew this arrogant pseudo-intellectual Khalid Jaafa, PKR supreme council member, who was one of Anwar Ibrahim's press secretaries.
Khalid is one detached fellow human being who has a serious personality flaw, that is, he is not able to reach out. He is one who is not able to have two way communications. He will always be seen to have this superior and snooty look about him. No wait, we believe that he believes he is much a superior being who always carries a thick book, thicker than the War and Peace edition, to prove it. He is one who never fails not to answer any straight question given to him.
When he was a press secretary to Anwar Ibrahim, he had a knack of not making reporters feel welcome. Well today he is still the same way, I was told, and he is now seriously thinking of ruling this country with his PKR cohorts. Good luck!
Then there was this Azmin Ali, who struck me as a Malay boy who had a very unhappy childhood. I was told he subscribes to Frederich Nietzsche’s theory of going against any moral philosophy. To him, Anwar Ibrahim is a perfect human being and when he was a private secretary to Anwar, he was also detached from the rest of the world. He is convinced Umno philosophy is wrong from day one!
I was told, yet to be verified, that he would asked for a "token" sum if an appointment was to be made with his boss. He has a sister who accused his boss of having an affair with his (Azmin’s) wife, and she also accused Anwar of buggery.
Azmin also has another brother, a very irritating TV "personality", a role model for future Malaysians! Sigh! After watching his brother on TV I am not sure whether this guy is gay, a cross dresser or what. Anyway he is quite irritating to me, just my opinion. Sorry to deviate, this is another story!
Then there is this very volatile Saifuddin Nasution. He is one angry young man. Trying to have a conversation with him is like preparing for war. He is always very belligerent. When he was with the Umno youth he tried very hard to "Abim-mise", or "Abrar-rise " or "Arab-ise", "what ever-ise" Umno; he failed and he left.
Umno Youth under Zahid Hamidi was an early failed attempt to turn or shape it into a very dangerous secret society-like organisation. At that point in time Zahid Hamidi, who was the youth head, was also perceived then to be pro-Anwar.
The only one of Anwar's "cohorts" that is still in contact with me is his other press secretary, Adlin Zabri. Adlin is a good guy who just got caught in an unfortunate political whirl pool. However, after many, many years of being treated like a leper, he is now doing very well on his own and the rest, according to him, was just a bad "dream". Well done Adlin.
What prompted me to write this? Well, there are times when I wake up in the morning and I would say to myself the hell with the Malays, my own people, why should I bother in defending their rights, in my own way that is.
For as long as I can remember the Malays are either in total ignorance, or in total disarray and I am beginning to believe they are suffering from this "bodoh dan sombong" syndrome or to loosely translate, it means "stupid and ignorant" or "stupid and very proud to admit the stupidity".
The assumption here is that if you admit that you are stupid it shows you want to learn and to know what it is all about. But to not admit you are stupid and then to pretend you are intelligent and smart. Well that spells the end of you.
Speaking on behalf of the Malays, this is what is happening to them now. It is refreshing to hear Umno secretary-general Tengku Adnan Mansor admitting to the fact that Umno is sick and in dire need of medication.
Of course Umno is sick, when the whole bunch of them nominate a leader who is already tarnished due to corruption. I am talking about the nominations given to Muhamad Muhammad Taib.
A friend from
Then there is this Rahim Thamby Chik, former Chief Minister of Malacca, who had to step down as Umno Youth chief over over investigations of beng involved with an underaged girl, and yet he was nominated for a vice-president post even though he was not qualified to contest. Nevertheless some Umno buffoons nominated him.
Then Umno has got this Nazri Aziz who uses such word as “celupah” without respect for an elder statesman like Tun Mahathir. Celupah is not a nice way to describe a man penchant for explaining. Nazri is also arrogant, and he is the symptomatic to Umno ailment.
Again what prompted me to write this piece? After reading PKR’s announcement to hold a congress at a stadium somwhere, and Anwar Ibrahim will again "explain" read "fooled" to PKR members with his rhetoric as to why he could not form a government on Sept 16.
Well, this man has a gift of gab, read lies, and rest assured his explanations will be accepted by all of the "bodoh sombong" Malays at this congress.
It was reported that about 2,000 morons from 160 divisions were expected to attend this three-day congress from Nov 28, beginning with the Wanita and Youth meetings, at the Stadium Melawati in Shah Alam.
According to Khalid, this year’s theme is Harapan Baru (A New Dawn), might as well call it A New Lie. Khalid said Anwar would introduce new and sophisticated lies on changes in store for PKR. “This congress will not just be a routine meeting. We have to mobilise the party since 2009 will be volatile with the (scheduled) power transition in Umno,” he added.
Well Malays, go on a “disarray binge” for all I care, for as a race you do not deserve a country, and you deserve a leader like Anwar Ibrahim, who after saying Najib as a prime minister will be a dictator, and will accuse Najib when he takes over as the next prime minister about something else.
There will be no end to the Malay Dillema as long as this man Anwar is around.
