Malays, Umno, and Perkasa — Sakmongkol AK47


(I agree with your view Sakmongkol AK47, so I decided to use it in my blogsite, however if you think I should not, just let me know and I will take it off...but your view on the subject is refreshing....in spite of our past little I wish you the best in expressing you views that Malays and Umno should and must hear if they still want to be a relevant political party)


MAY 5 — I have written several essays about Perkasa. I wish to assure my blog readers, those essays were not about Datuk Ibrahim Ali. I don’t know him personally, know of him and seen him from afar. That’s about it. What I have written were about what Perkasa represents.

Ibrahim Ali is an inconsequential footnote to our political denouncement. That is my personal opinion. Readers may disagree. He is politically finished in Kelantan. He became MP because of some twisted logic of arrangement with PAS which I don’t understand.

It is now not open for PAS to condemn Ibrahim Ali. You consciously allowed him to contest on your ticket. You should have finished him off the last time.

He has reinvented himself as a champion of Malay rights. This places him at odds with Umno which is the true voice of the Malay lumpenproletariat. Elements within Umno support Ibrahim Ali and Perkasa because he and Perkasa now becomes their voice?

Who are these elements?

They are our own super 30. Those who demand a 30 per cent stake in anything — in business, in positions and whatever. They are the puteras in the Bumi. Ibrahim Ali represents those Umno contractors who got a contract to build bridges who resold the contracts to their cukongs.

Ibrahim Ali and Perkasa represent the puteras who got land from Mat Taib in Selangor. Ibrahim Ali and Perkasa represent those puteras who fly first and business class who gulped copious amounts of wine, and who make naughty and obscene remarks to and about stewardesses and sometime to stewards.

Who needs Perkasa? Maybe people like Puad Zarkashi. Then please leave Umno and join Perkasa. Ibrahim Ali has got a talent forming political parties — persuade him to form one and see how many Malays join him.

The reason why its alleged that 70 per cent of Malays identify themselves with Perkasa is due to Umno’s own stupidity. It hasn’t spoken about Malay economics, hopes and fears. PM Datuk Seri Najib Razak can chuck some of the Umno ministers out at the coming cabinet reshuffle.

Malay interests are already taken care as per our constitution. Perkasa can’t replace Umno as the substantive voice of the average Malay. Umno may veer away from their original struggles on which it launched itself in 1946. But Umno also has its own self healing and self-censoring mechanisms.

Do the provisions about Malay interests in the constitution factor heavily in the daily living of the average Malay? They don’t, but their existence provides a sense of emotional safeguard and safety net. It’s enough they exist and may not even be called up.

Because the average Malay knows what elevates and propels them forward are not guarantees or noises made by people from Perkasa, but their own willingness to work and compete.

Yes...We will wait and see who will be retained in the next Cabinet Reshuffle. That will be an indication of DS Najib's leaning on the the NEM issue...Which will decide on the future survival of UMNO!

UMNO is a party that had fought for the Malays. Therefore, we will see whether UMNO will continue to do that or champion others.

Why is Ibrahim Ali putting Najib down ?

Everytime that pig head Ibrahim Ali open his mouth BN lost support, the more he open the more BN lost support.

Many of you might not admit it but BN will only success with the support of Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban, Kandazans, Malanau, Dusun, Sanok, Kayan, Orang Asli, Penan & others. Malaysia will only develop into a world class society if we choose the best man for any job in regardless.
