FEVER, SORETHROAT & PENDULUM – malaysiakini

I feel Malaysians as a whole got the same symtoms as I’m feeling now. I mean Fever can drive you mad, Sorethroat can render you voiceless/speechless and looking at the Pendulum too long will make you loose sight. What does this all mean? As simple as falling sick can distract you and make you less productive. Its exactly what’s happening to me and I suppose all of us maybe?

Our bro Haris got a call .. what here’s whats said http://harismibrahim.wordpress.com/2008/10/16/stay-calm-and-stay-cunning-dont-react-for-now/

Lil Hummingbird caught up with me at the lay-by heading out of KL last night.

‘Jaya, Shar and Chee Seng are spot on’, he said.

‘Who is Jaya, Shar and Chee Seng? And correct about what?’, I asked

 

The comments by Jaya, Shar101 and Chee Seng reproduced below.

Jaya :

Banning Hindraf is a “smoke screen” to divert the nation’s attention from the ‘private sms’ and ‘public Eurocopter’!!

Only hope Hindraf’s does not fall into the ‘trap’ by responding as they ‘expect’ the reaction to be!
Need for a rational but strategic response is paramount.

Shar101:

Never mind the legal technicalities, bro.

It’s become obvious the authorities did not bother to heed Hindraf’s call nor did they provide a proper avenue for Hindraf to channel their grievances.

Militant UMNO needs a bogeyman.

In Hindraf, they found one or putting it another way, the UMNO-led BN government and the MSM have manipulated/reported events since Nov ‘07 to paint Hindraf as such.

Things will get worse now.

Hindraf going ‘underground’ will create opportunities for the powers that be to set up state-organised covert groups masquerading as Hindraf to spread chaos.

Unless AI and PR have better options.

We seriously need a political solution to avert a social disaster from happening. Question is – Will AI take the lead?

________________________________

Chee Seng :

Is this a strategy to try and incite another May 13 or Ops Lalang?

Looks like it. Close observers of Malaysian politics have sensed a shift in the political climate since Dollah announced he decided not to seek re-election. The racism displayed by UMNO is no longer random. There seems to be more cohesion and focus in its expression.

It’s reminiscent of Ops Lalang i.e. a racially-charged scenario engineered by Mahathir who then swooped down on dissenters. Both situations also occurred when UMNO’s grip on power was under threat. Both situations cowed the nation into submission and allowed UMNO to weasel their way to a stronger grip on the nation.

It would seem that today the strategy has not changed, but tactics are a little more refined this time. Not because UMNO has become smarter, but because of their clumsy moves since March 8, they have to tread more carefully.

And since Najib, Muhyiddin and Mahathir seems to be one big happy family now, it’s pretty obvious Mahathir is calling the plays in the game.

So if we interpret everything that’s happening in our country now through the assumption that it’s all building up Ops Lallang 2 or May 13 pt 2, the strategies employed becomes obvious:

Step 1.  First neutralise the Generals of change – RPK and Anwar

Step 2.  Then incite the Malays to fever pitch – using Ahmad Ismail, Utusan Melayu, Khir Toyo, etc to paint everything uttered by non-Malays as anti-Malay

Step 3.  Antagonise non-Malays – blatantly lie about Teresa Kok, RPK, the Sin Chew reporter, demonise HINDRAF, rip up KTK’s photo, etc, etc, etc.

This is moving the pawns into position for battle!

The next logical step would be:

Step 4.  Confound the lieutenants to eliminate the second-tier leadership of the movement for change.

This can be done by crackdown or distractions. Since they have seen the rakyat’s recent reaction to crackdown, distraction is the more likely strategy employed.

Is it being implemented now? I believe so.

Plenty of issues are being thrown out into the open that divert attention away from people’s clamour for change of govt have recently surfaced – Cabinet absent from Parliament, refusal to re-table Budget 2009, fuel price decrease, RPK’s trial postponement, Utusan’s spat with Teresa Kok, banning HINDRAF, rumours of Zul joining UMNO, etc etc etc.

This will throw up plenty of fires to keep the remaining civic leaders busy. So instead of a concentrated push for changing the BN govt, the people’s energy is diverted to defending and supporting RPK, Teresa Kok and HINDRAF and trying to make heads or tails of the whole plethora of senseless issues.

These issues cannot be interpreted or reasoned out because they are designed to be senseless! So while the PR & civic leadership are thus occupied, the real strategising is going on between TDM, Najib and Muhyiddin.

Step 5: Strike decisively – Shock and Awe

Dear friends, it’s been 7 months since the election and the BN/UMNO has not shown any inclination to change or reform. In fact, we see their position hardening against dissenters. Now that the unholy trinity is finally in charge, the game will be up very soon.

We need regime change in this country if we ever hope to see real reforms. And we need it more desperately than ever with the global recession bearing down on us. (One can only assume that the PM-to-be refuses to table a new budget because when recession hits this country, we’ll be too busy worrying about our rice bowl than regime change.)

Let’s not be distracted from that goal.

How can we play our part in all this?

Do not be drawn into their evil trap! Do not get angry by their actions/words – that’s exactly what they want! Do not flame websites or blogs with our reactions to their shenanigans. Do not counter their comments.

Let’s stay focused! Our leaders in Parliament and in civic society need all our support!

BEAUTIFUL PENANG AND BARISAN RAKYAT TAXIS

“I DO HOPE THE PENANG CM WILL HAVE A LOOK AT THE TAXI DRIVERS’ PROBLEMS AND HELP ELEVATE THEIR LIVELIHOOD”

Just back from Penang. May I say to all Penangites – you made the right choice. When I was there the fellow paid UMNOputras were giving a loud welcome present to Penang’s new Chief Minister. How nice of them to delay my taxi and made me stand under the hot sun. Wanted to seek a meet with Y.B. Jeff Ooi but my sms didn’t reach him as his mobile may be off. Neither did I get any reply after it was received, can’t blame him cause DAP needs to set things right fast! 

Anyway Penang is BEAUTIFUL and need not have those Mega projects like PGCC which by the way locals dislike. Its congested enough and Penang is more than super high density hig rise buildings that add no value to Penang other than making it look more like KL which is not to be. If they do need to build anything it should be on the mainland not the island.

Penang needs a good public transport system so locals and tourists are able to travel the island hassle free and enjoy its historic and natural beauty as well as the people. Ah! the people, lovely until you mention PM or KJ…. boy oh boy! you would be entertained for hours. Now I understand why Penang fell from BN’s grip.

Want to find the best source of information you need not look further than your Taxi driver. Not just any Taxi driver, I was in a few driven by MALAY/MUSLIM drivers. They could have spent the whole day giving me the run down of PM & Gang while touring the island. Instead of telling me historic legends of Penang they can show me which, where and when someone made some huge profits from some huge NEP project. “Tengok sini-lah Dato’ Hijau ini makan duit rakyat” one said, to my amusement the development there didn’t look any bit as expensive as mentioned.

“Ini semua perompak rakyat,” “Saya undi DAP lor” “Taip-taip hari media BN memburukkan pembangkang, semua pun jelak”, “Sini chiak, sana chiak howlian lor” “Ini Umno buat luan nia, sudah su mahu mogok sikit pun tak gentleman” “Tengok Koh gentleman lar” – Wow, Penang taxi drivers really can speak Hokkien leh! I’m so proud when I hear a Malay speaking some Chinese as we can speak Malay anytime but hearing them speak means more as it shows Malaysia is really capable to progress without being race centric. Barisan Rakyat sprit does live in many and I’m sure its very much embedded now in Penang. They can see beyond race and really want a better life. My salute to the Taxi drivers’ of Penang.

DEAR UNCLE LIM,

IF YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT RACE HERE’S MY 2 CENTS…. YOU JUST MADE A MOCKERY OUT OF US CHINESE!

Stop all these race based and anti-islam ideology and work for a better nation. That is why we voted every opposition party in. Else only DAP will win and none for PKR or PAS. To us there’s no problem who’s MB as long as he/she is clean and able to lead us all to progress and most important be fair to all regardless of race and religion.

This is your DAP objective (from DAP website)

Our Objectives
 
The vision of the party is to establish a peaceful and prosperous social democracy that can unite its disparate races and diverse religions and cultures based on:
   
a Malaysian Malaysia concept by forging Malaysian race with
universal moral values,
 
offering equal access and opportunity;
 
democractic governance and rule of law;
 
creating wealth and distributing wealth equitably; and
 
fighting against corruption.
   
The Mission of the DAP
 
Our mission is to make a difference in the lives of Malaysians by bringing about positive changes. To do that leaders and members must be united, have a vision focused on our ideals and principles, congregate talented people who are – economically competent; and with the ability to deliver efficient management of the civil administration.

calvin_booger.jpg  In regards to the post by Elizabeth Wong on “What are they trying to hide”, there were incidents in some districts offices where hardcore BN supporters warned department staffs to leave as they tried to remove computers from each department. Reason being told is its BN’s property and they do not want Oppositions to get their filthy hands on them. I presume there more to it than just the property but the contents in the computer that’s more important. What’s inside we won’t know unless some staff from those department is willing to come forth with more information about it.

Fortunately, some members of the media caught this on camera. Unfortunately, we can’t march right in to stop them because:(i) we haven’t been sworn in;
(ii) police has cordoned off the state office since Saturday night.
