Race-based parties are in ICU … before they die

March 12, 2008

UMNO for the …

MCA for the …

MIC for the …

i can never bring myself to write any of those ‘offensive’ words here (you can check, none was ever authored by me and i am not about to do so now).

If the leaders of the above parties above cannot see the irrelevance for what their party stands for, after the 12th GE, then they can go and fook themselves.

The Badawi-s, Ong Ka Ting-s and Samy Vellu-s are the enemies of Malaysia and Malaysians and they can go to hell. Even till today, they are still thinking and talking about what they will do to resuscitate their party’s stand and continue to be relevant to their community.

Helloooooo, the community is Bangsa Malaysia! And for that idiot of an MB down south who once said that there is no such thing as Bangsa Malaysia can go eat shit.

The rakyat have spoken and they are saying we do not want to be divided any more. British colonial rule has died long time ago and after 50 years of independence any trace of ‘colonialist thinking, behaviour and actions’ left should be given the death sentence. What, you want to be more colonial than the colonialist? Enough is enough!

Whether you like it or not, we are Malaysians. And don’t you dare tell me to go back to my kampong when you don’t like to see, hear or read what you see, hear or read because of your bigotry. i will just echo you and tell you to fook off in the same breadth.

As a Malaysian, i have no problem with the original objectives of the NEP. We can continue with it but don’t hijack it to serve yourselves who happen to be temporarily in a representative position of the rakyat who is your boss.

Poverty is colour blind. And you’ll be surprised to know that the majority of the poor is from the group of Malaysians whom their ‘big brothers’ have been claiming to fight for their share of wealth year in and year out. Being marginalised by the same group of people who claim to have your interest at heart is the most cruel. Double-cruel is when they shamelessly exploit your emotion and use you to enrich themselves.

Malaysians for Malaysians. Malaysians for Malaysia. Two simple guiding principles that should be aggressively adopted and pursued until we become a force – again – to be reckoned with in the new world order.

We can do it (we nearly did until ‘hijackings’ by corrupt leaders became a norm and a way of life.) Let’s share our knowledge, experience and expertise and help every Malaysian to be as good as the next Malaysian who shares the same interest and dream. No one should be left behind because of our skin colour, belief or background. No one should be excused for negating this national agenda, including those of our immediate family.

We will practice zero-tolerance for failure. We will reverse national policies if we have to. Capitalism will be reviewed for and in the interest of the citizenry at large.

Getting rich for ourselves and our families is never the objective but for the country is. When the country is rich, we and our family will become rich through a well-managed and efficient wealth-distribution national policy.

UMNO, MCA and MIC are in the intensive care unit right now fighting for their lives.

They are near-death and are desperately looking for a cure. And from what i read and hear they are prescribing for themselves at the moment, i can only see accelerated death.

The prognosis is wrong and therefore, too, will be the medicine.

There’s only one prescription for this barisan to stay alive and that is to merge and be part of this new UMNO entity which stands for United Malaysians National Organisation.

Dato’ Sir Onn Bin Ja’afar in 1951 may have been a little too ahead of his time but BN’s time in 2008 is fast running out.

  1. Barisan Rakyat is cracking… Kit Siang and DAP Perak will boycott Perak MB swearing-in ceremony. All is not well, after all.

  2. Hello Anil ! You have written a very insightful article arising from the Sub-prime mortgage problem, of which I was not too clear about. After reading your article I can see that it looks very much the 1997 problem that got Asia undone by the same people from the US and I suppose from EU.

    I believe in one wise and ancient saying that nothing comes from nothing; and no matter how clever you are you just cannot pump up hot air and expect it to remain the same all the time, what goes up must eventually come down. The BN government have for the last 50 years been about shaving off a percentage of all government generated contracts and franchises for their own selfish benefit; I would go as far as to say that about 25% of all government contracts have been shaved off and pass on as waste due to corruption. Grandiose projects are thought up that are not of any urgency or requirement are implemented merely because the bigger they are the more the politicians can shave off for themselves. Looking at the second bridge project for Penang I can only say that this is another white elephant that will costs the state several billion ringgit and the shave off will make another crony very rich.

    I have been back to KL and the huge highway that runs through KL to Penang must have costs several billions, and from my observation there is no urgency for such a huge project, Penang is a sea port and Penang could have a first class air-port to improve much needed infrastructure, but instead you plan to put in a billion dollar second bridge project; where is the need for such a project ?

    In KL the hugely expensive FREEWAY does not merit the expenditure because it has not loosened up traffic at all, there are still very long traffic chock points that were there before the highway was put in use as it is now when it is in use. These projects were built merely to benefit those in power. To give them the opportunity to collect toll and to shave off a percentage of the contract sum. The BN government has wasted billions upon billions over the past 50 years. Compare the returns on investment between Singapore and Malaysia and you can see what they have and how they have put their investment dollars to good use. Malaysia wasted their billions upon billions of their ringgit merely to profit a few in the government. While Singapore has invested billions of dollars towards building up one of the world’s finest educational system and a world renown R & D facilities, Malaysia is still “clomping” along at bullock-cart speed; there is just no comparison, a case of cheese and chalk. Singapore has catapulted into the front ranks of a 21st century economy, while Malaysia is still chugging along at a leisurely “kampong” pace.

    I have forever said that Malaysia had the good fortune to discover oil at the time that I left Malaysia, and that discovery of oil saved Malaysia from becoming a case of a SUDAN OR AFGHANISTAN. Malaysia has no manufacturing to speak off. What is passed off as manufacturing in Malaysia is nothing more than mere assembly of discarded Japanese technology as eg. The assembly of the Mitsubishi that passes for the Proton. Yes Malaysia bought the British Lotus and what profitability has it generated ? Look at the Malaysian icon of cheap flights, like Asia Airlines a success story, but it was bought by Fernandes for 1 ringgit and turned around. The Malaysian government lost billions in that project only to be turned around by a non Malay. There are hundreds of other similar examples, that proves the rule that AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IS A WASTE OF SCARCE RESOURCES; it did not really benefit the Malays because all the projects that were supported by Affirmative action went into huge losses and they did not benefit Malaysia in any meaningful way.

    The Malays ought to by now at least by trial and error, realize that it takes a certain type of individual to become an entrepreneur and one can say by a rule of thump that a Malay is not likely to be one.

    Penang is an excellent test bed for Malaysia (and by that I mean the BN government) to find a more effective model for development than just sticking to a failed model that is hooked on affirmative action that has gone on for the last 50 years. I agree with DAP that the NEP needs to be scraped because Penang is mainly Chinese, may I guess about 75% Chinese ? Therefore, 75% of the population will not need affirmative action (are there 25% Malays in Penang ? ) In the case of Penang therefore, may I suggest that CM Lim Guan Eng need not take any step back from what he has declared, that he will scrap the NEP(I think he will scrap it too ). My suggestion is for the CM to implement a public announcement of all the good stuff eg. Government contracts up for tender and scholarships and jobs in government.
    My suggestion is that if qualified Malays win any government contracts by fair tender then government assistance may be available to the successful Malay contractor to complete the project. This model is built on the foundation that merit is the basis of success and that if the Malay candidate has merit but not sufficient means to complete his project, the government will render assistance to him. This system will therefore remove the “Malay Sultan syndrome”; the Chinese dubbed this the Malai Wong system, whereby the China-man enlist a Malay as the chairman and under his name takes on a government contract and pays off the Malay chairman a percentage of the contract but the whole project is managed by the Chinese. This system has gone on ever since the first days of Merdeka and it is the greatest indictment of the failure of Malaysia’s failed affirmative action. Let us be blunt about it, if the Malay is not able or qualified to take the job then where is the common sense for taking him on ? His inadequacy only blow up the costs of the project and this has gone on forever.

    I can say that I speak for most Chinese that we do not object and for that matter we had never ever objected to a fair and equitably administered affirmative action, meaning that this assistance are given justly to deserving cases of Malays who need assistances to progress. We Chinese only object to the wastage brought on by nepotism and corruption. If affirmative action only benefits an elite then the Malays will never progress to the point when they will not need any assistance. This is our objection. That being the case CM Lim can experiment with a system that will ultimately create a class of Malay entrepreneurs that will draw level with the other races. What CM Lim has said is just common sense and good thinking. We Chinese do not need any affirmative action.

    On the issue of the award of scholarships and government jobs, if I remember rightly, there is provision in the original Malaysian Constitution that mandates a ratio of 3 : 1 in other words, a 25% places reserved for non-Malays; but this provision had been perverted by those administer the government to give ALL THE PLACES to the Malays. All we need do is to revert to the original Malaysian Constitution and enforce that provision according to the law. We need to name the successful candidates in the press, like the publication of the HSC results. Who are the Malays and who are the non-Malays to show transparency and just administration of the required affirmative action. I believe that transparency is the key and it applies even in the case of the Malays.

    What do you take me for? An idiot like you? Sheesh, go fook yourself dead with your crap.

    ewoon,

    What is your guarantee that the Chinese won’t crush the Malays should they rule? Only Malays are accomodating to other races and you should be thankful that you are enjoying a good life in Malaysia because of the system which has been in place for the past 50 years. And don’t forget the social contract too, as stipulated in the Federal Constitution.

    Just look at Singapore. Lee Kuan Yew claims that no one is marginalised there but if that’s the case, why haven’t we seen a Malay Prime Minister in the island republic, hah? I have a Chinese Singaporean friend who’s a pilot in the RSAF who openly admittted that the Singapore government has a policy that no Malay pilot be allowed to operate a fighter jet in the RSAF. Now how do respond to that? At least the RMAF has more Chinese pilots operating the most sophisticated assets like the F/A-18 Hornet, MiG-29 and SU-30 MKM.

    I won’t tell you to migrate to another country ewoon. But if you look at the statistics, the Chinese migrate in far greater numbers than Malays to the typical countries (usual suspects) such as Australia, Canada and the States. Why? Because they have no allegiance to Malaysia. For us Malays, this is tanah tumpah darahku, our land. I am a professional ewoon and to be honest, have received several attractive offers to work abroad, me being the highly competitive oil and gas sector. But I chose to remain in Malaysia because this is my home, my land. And proud of it.

    Bangsa Malaysia is a dream, ewoon. The Malays have realised their mistakes in the recently-concluded general election and will return BN the 2/3 majority in the next one. The four states under opposition control will also be returned to BN four years from now. We still outnumber you guys, you know.

    Oh, by the way, I think I will tell you this. Get the hell out of Malaysia if you don’t like the current arrangements. Racist.

    – First off, afterburner73, “you can get the hell out of Malaysia, too, if you don’t like the current arrangements” (echoing you!)

    You call me a racist but can you please substantiate instead of making a myopic statement?. For a professional, whom you claim to be, you can hardly come up with a cogent argument. Being emotional only shows your lack of mental prowess.

    You may have opted to stay put in Malaysia and make a living here despite the “several attractive offers” to work abroad, so you claimed. But that hardly proves anything. If at all, it could be because you love the country more and want to contribute to its development, or, i will put it to you that it could be a case of fearing to fail outside your comfort zone?

    What others do, whether they migrate or continue to stick their heads up their arses, is none of my business and don’t you dare lump me together as one of their ilk. You hardly know me and you come here to accuse me of being a racist and insinuate that i am like the herd in your ‘trusting and conclusive’ statistics?

    Where’s your learning? What does this blog state as a stance? Don’t you read and understand what you read?

    All said, for a thirty 35 year old (tell me i am wrong about your age), you seem very insecure. If you believe in yourself and what this country is all about, do whatever you have to maintain status quo or change things. Like you said, there’s the Federal Constitution – by all means use it to the max for your cause.

    Without sounding patronising or insulting, have you read it in its entirety and understood the content?

    Brother, i would have rather you engage me than spew vitriol at me. Urghh, … such is the failing of a pompous, contradictory and small-minded bigot.

    Friend,

    Race based parties is still relevant in the malaysian context.
    This is the core principle in social representations.
    Recent elections is more about public resentment on many issues and is NOT about race based parties being rejected.
    Its a message to the government.
    There will be some shaking up and the the 3 main race will still need to be represented, and their voices heard.
    Every race need an organisation they Trust, being malay, indian or chinese.
    malay and indian will never trust DAP. PKR and Pas have their own agenda.
    MIC needed to represent the indians interest, while the chinese can either support MCA or DAP.
    maybe your article is again 50 years ahead of time, but for now the reality is still the same. I still call Ah Chong chinese, Ramasamy indian, and Ahmad melayu.

    So far, the chinese excels under the present arrangement.
    Now, do you think the Malays in Penang can trust DAP.
    See it for yourself.

    We have seen it in singapore

    And we have not touch Religion yet…….you’re the smart alex, solve that one

    Malaysians for Malaysians. Malaysians for Malaysia? Its already is. What you’re asking is uncharted territories, untested water…troubled water for sure

    mwrmmg, i beg to differ and please stop referring me as the smart alec – i can do the same to you too and that immediately puts a stop to further discourse.

    Race-based politics only has relevance simply because the rakyat has been subjected to such conditioning for the last 50 years and can’t seem to break free from it. It has become a ‘monster’ in our lives. i suppose that’s what politics is all about but there again the rakyat should be able to decipher the agendas of their leaders and voice their disagreement should there be any. Instilling fear and manipulating emotions of the people are not new to politicians and they have never failed to use these aspects to their advantage for their own gain.

    The last GE has demonstrated that the people are the real boss. What the people want the people get. It’s how hard we continue to push our politicians to truly represent us and be answerable to us. Look to history around the world and you’ll agree that this is true. In Singapore’s case, the Singaporeans have not been able to gather enough mass support to force their government of the day to listen to them. When there’s enough awakening, that day will come.

    With regards to religion, this is one of the most misunderstood and greatest evil man has created to ‘enslave’ the mass. It is a tragedy. Humans must learn that religion is man-made but a belief in God is a one-to-One relationship. They must also learn to listen and obey their Maker in full; not be selective and take scriptures out of context.

    Good day, my friend.

    ewoon,

    Yes, you’re the smart alex.

    Do you actually love Malaysia? Prove it. I have because apart from serving the national oil corporation, I’m also a Major in the Rejimen Askar Wataniah, as an extension to my Reserve Officer Training Unit days during varsity. I still patrol our country’s borders from time to time with our regular troops when I get time off from work, so that jerks like you get to have a good night’s sleep.

    Itu barulah sayang tanahair namanya.

    One more thing, it seems the Chinese are everywhere in the world. What’s wrong with your motherland China? Can’t get enough opportunities? Or perhaps you guys aren’t even accomodated by the Chinese government, hence forcing your forefathers to seek life in more accomodating countries like Malaysia?

    Sorry, ewoon, it’s you guys who make us still suspicious. And why the hell didn’t you refuted my arguments on Singapore? Because it’s true, kan?

    – afterburner73, without sounding rude, have you checked your ancestors’ history and where they originally came from? History does not lie but denial will make it appear to be so. Adoi.

  7. afterburner73 permalink

    Whatever ewoon.

    I’m thankful for what I have. You should do the same. Cubalah belajar bersyukur saudara.

    – Let’s have a larger worldview, brother. Let not suspicion, colour of our skin, cultural background and whatever blind us to the good that we are capable of. Take care and God bless you.

    i respect your ideal. It’s hard to imagine THAT while we are still dealing and trying to understand each other, whether its skin colour, culture, language, religion etc etc.

    maybe that’s why the world for centuries have boundaries.
    Maybe there’s a reason why there are so many different races on this planet.
    why not have one single political party for planet earth.

    We live next to each other and we have learned to respect each other. 50 years is still a short time for a nation to evolve.
    This is actually slightly lower than an average person life span.
    Maybe you have to look at a few more generations.

    BN was formed as an alliance and most importantly to promote respect for each other and tolerance. Never promise such an ideal.
    Unfortunately, the present government performance is not appreciated by the general public. It has nothing to do with race. 4 years is no measure for extinction.

    In years to come there will still be Melayu kampung, India estet and Cina bukit. They wont understand your ideal. Who can reach them out.?
    For the urbanites, probably they’re Ok, more selfish, more competitive, its almost level playing field.
    But for those there, if you dont listen to them, that’s what Hidraf turned out to be

    BN formula is still relevant and they are rejected because their politicians are not listening. Politicians are human and its their error.

    When one race is being threatened, where do one go to seek refuge?
    Tell that to the Tibetians

    I can only wish you a very long life to seek your ideal.
    Right now, government may change, but reality is still the same
