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!

BEWARE OF THE MASK WITHIN

Recently there seems to be lots of rumours and half truth flying around and printed in BN owned papers. Even false PAS flyers are making their rounds in Perak as well as false SMS spreading around without much response from PDRM. Very unusual for PDRM to keep mum on matters that might raise racial tensions. Suddenly peaceful demonstrations without police permits are becoming norm without any FRU backlashes and detentions of demonstrators.

Certain MSM tries to provoke DAP members with false declarations of this and that by another party PAS and hope to be the 1st to break the DAP-PKR-PAS Barisan Rakyat team apart. As usual DAP tends to jump sky high in response without first checking if there’s any truth to the matter. In another light PAS seems to be doing much of the mending and positive news comes out more often about DAP. They seem to be trying to pacify fears from Malays and Chinese as well as Indians from negative news portrayed by MSM. 

If you were to stand back and see the plan from BN Umno specifically to mess up the newly won states with their attacks via MSM, SMS, Demonstration, Rumours, Cybertroopers and even maybe planted moles in DAP-PKR-PAS.

What the new coalition should do is talk to each other in all matters and refrains from over-reacting to certain news especially from MSM. DAP-PKR-PAS are no longer oppositions in the five states and they must be ready to behave like leaders and not scream but talk as leaders so the citizens will feel they are worth their votes.

It’s going to be a long road and BN Umno will not stop its nonsense because they are ruled by gangsters and not gentlemen. Neither will PM issue a warning to the members to stop their monkeying around or even dare to take the rap himself. So its up to DAP-PKR-PAS to form a true non-race based Barisan Rakyat party and lead us to humble BN especially Umno once and for all.

That is exactly why he flops as the Education Minister…. but why he’s ‘Keluri’ that’s a ‘Misteri’ too!
Now I wonder will he remain in the same post or be moved to the Plantation Ministry and his post taken by none other than Mat-Remp-It Khairy as the new Oxfartution Minister? Its a ‘Misteri Keluri’ too!

Tun Mahathir is happy his son Mukhriz contested and won and he managed to give one more side-kick to the already bruised Pak Lah when asked by the press.

Post by Rocky:
Resign, Lah.
Dr Mahathir said yesterday’s election result sends a clear message that the people are angry. “Not only the Malays are angry. The Chinese are angry. The Indians are angry. Malaysians are angry,” he told a packed media conferenec at his Mines residence in KL.

Abdullah should take responsibility for the defeat.

Q. Would you resign if you were the PM?
A. Yes, I would resign.

Q. But the BN loss heavily in 1999?
A. We won then, we had two-thirds majority.

SORRY GUYS/GALS, I’M CELEBRATING ALREADY….CHEERS MATES!

“BARISAN RAKYAT – NOT ONLY ONE CHOICE”

I’VE VOTED, HAVE YOU?

Happy Voting to all All-Blogs, CitizenThinkTank, Pelitar, Bersih, Malaysia-Today and Malaysiakini supporters. Long live Accountability, Responsibility & Transparency – BARISAN RAKYAT!

Good Morning Voters,
I woke up early with my family and made our way to the polling station nearby. Its a refreshing walk and I thought of lots of things even from last night before I slept. I send well wishes via SMS to our dear friends that are running for a position this election so you can have a voice in the state and parliament without fear and favor.

On the way there I thought of how good it was back in the 70s I could drink from my school tap good clean looking water. In the 80s its tinted but still drinkable no smell or unwanted taste, then 90s became brown and I think many people including me didn’t dare to anymore. Come 2000’s it all turned black – meaning you change the outdoor filter and on back the water and in 1min with was brown – the following day its dark brown – then walah! KOPI-O without you needing to order one from your neighbourhood mamak!

Did Malaysia improve? Did Malaysians get a better deal after 50years? Your take clean water or black slim shady? I know I prefer clean water and that’s how I prefer my new Government to be.

When I reached the voting place and got my ‘saluran’ number, I noticed they devided each ‘saluran’ by age group. ‘Saluran’ 1 had the oldest voters and it goes down to ‘saluran’ 6 being youngest. That’s how the Government knows which age group votes who at which location. The other thing is I noticed young people don’t wake up early. The line for elders were much longer than in ‘saluran’ 5 and 6. It might be true young people care less and rather spend the night clubbing than worry about the country’s future. Maybe they have a choice to work overseas or get PR else where.

Anyway I’ve done what I need to do and may the best party wins wherever they can.

“We do have a choice and Barisan Rakyat gives you the voters not only one choice.”
The choice to choose
The choice to voice out
The choice to reject
The choice to punish bad leaders
The choice to put intelligent leaders in Parliament
& many more choices to your liking…. so who says you have only one choice?
“BN” why cause they have no choice because they lack the ability to lead a Global Malaysia.

SO MAKE BARISAN RAKYAT ALL OF OUR CHOICES YOUNG, OLD, MEN, WOMEN AND VOTERS…. “VOTE BARISAN RAKYAT – NOT ONLY ONE CHOICE”
