Hishammuddin deserves more than RM10 salary cut motions in forthcoming Parliament for his “transformation” from a “know nothing Minister” to “all knowing Minister” all in a matter of 24 hours


Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein deserves more than RM10 salary cut motions in the forthcoming budget Parliament for his “transformation” from a “know nothing Minister” to “all knowing Minister” all in a matter of 24 hours.

This is the transformation of Hishammuddin before the eyes of 28 million Malaysians in his response to the wild and reckless speech by Special Branch’s assistant director of the E2 (M) national social extremist threat division head Mohd Sofian Md Makinuddin to the National Youth Leaders Convention in Parliament last Thursday alleging that Jemaah Islamiah (JI) terrorists are infiltrating PAS and former communists infiltrating the DAP for the coming general election.

When asked on Friday, Hishammuddin put up the front that he is a Minister who knows nothing, pleading that he was “not sure” about the alleged infiltration of communists and terrorists into Pakatan Rakyat: “I don’t have the relevant information (about the issue) at the present moment. Therefore, I cannot say whether it is true or not. I can only say this much, this topic is very sensitive.”
When Hishammuddin was strongly criticized for his “most cowardly, craven and irresponsible response” to Sofian’s wild and reckless allegations and being “the lousiest Home Minister in the nation’s history”, as “how can a responsible Home Minister claim ignorance when a top Special Branch officer could go public to make the most damning allegations against Federal opposition parties?”, Hishammuddin performed a full somersault in 24 hours and claimed to be a “all knowing Minister”.

Hishammuddin said on Saturday that the “alleged infiltration” of JI terrorists and communists into Pakatan Rakyat is not at a level that would threaten the country’s security, saying:

“Right now, I am saying that the reports that have come to me, whatever penetration (in the opposition) as far as ideology is concerned, it does not affect the security, safety and stability of our nation. So don’t make it more than that.”

Asked whether the police had any evidence on the claim, Hishammuddin replied: “If it concerns national security, it is not just evidence, action must be taken and it has to be transparent and open. But if it is just an observation concerning involvement that does not threaten national security at this stage, then I am not worried.”

He added that what the Special Branch said were “merely facts”, adding “If it does not affect national security that we do not see it as a threat”.

Hishammuddin is not talking as a sane and sensible Home Minister but uttering gobbledegook because he was trying to defend the indefensible.

What are the “merely facts” that Hishammuddin is referring to with reference to Sofian’s allegations of JI terrorists infiltrating PAS and communists infiltrating DAP?

Hishammuddin and Sofian have been challenged to name names of JI terrorists who have infiltrated PAS and communists who have infiltrated DAP, and if they cannot name names, these allegations are not “merely facts” but downright lies and falsehoods arising from pure flights of Sofian’s imagination!

Instead of reprimanding and disciplining Sofian for abusing his Special Branch position to become the political pawns of Barisan Nasional, Hishammuddin tried to defend Sofian’s transgression by indulging in gobbledegook himself.

At the same time, he tried to appear as a “know all Minister” 24 hours after he told Malaysians that he was a “know nothing Minister” as far as the wild allegations were concerned.

Hishammuddin is proving to be quite a national disaster as a Home Minister.

Recently, he was afflicted with the serious denial complex denying that Malaysians have been gripped by escalating fear of crime as a result of rising crime incidents in the country – blaming it all on “perception” and the social media.

There can be no dispute that for the first time in the nation’s history, Malaysians feel unsafe in the country. This is in addition to the increasing fear of crime felt by Malaysians and foreign investors in the country.

This is another illustration where Hishammuddin wanted to project the image that he is a “know all Minister” when he appears to “know nothing” at all!

Hishammuddin does not appear to be on top of his Ministerial responsibility to ensure that the police must give top priority to their core functions of keeping crime low to allow Malaysians to feel safe in the country. Instead, he is condoning the waste of public funds and resources with the police trying to keep UMNO/Barisan Nasional in power, like Sofian’s wild and reckless allegations.

    ‘ …… his “transformation” from a “know nothing Minister” to “all knowing Minister” all in a matter of 24 hours.’

    It all depends on his blood sugar level. It is the fasting month you know. One moment he can think a bit, just a bit. Next moment his mind is just blank, totally empty. But he looks high on something all the time. Strange man.

    Personally, I prefer a 0.99 (ninety nine) sens pay cut. Maybe that might be too much as well.

    Hishammuddin has been spending too much time and energy in protecting Najib government. As a result, he does not know how to protect the rakyat and the country.

    Hishammuddin must understand that he is paid by taxpayers (not by Najib) to do service for them. He must at least show a reasonable performance in the jobs entrusted to him by the taxpayers.

    No sheriff, he grins toooooo much. That is the whole problem. And in case you are wondering, the seemingly perpetual grinning act is really a lame cover-up effort by kerismuddin bin lembuddin to hide his stupidity. Just keep up the grin if you do not know what best to do.

    Excuse me, I have yet to come across any mention of the late Peter Ato Mayau to perished in the recent helicopter tragedy. Doesn’t this Sarawak’s PKR strongman deserve our condolences here?

    He has been suffering from the foot and mouth disease ever since he came into contact with the Shah Alam cowhead guys whom he defended for their gross show of cowardice.

    Next he might end up with swine fever. I cringe at the thought of whatever he might utter in his delirium.

    “He added that what the Special Branch said were ‘merely facts’, adding “If it does not affect national security that we do not see it as a threat”.

    What this kacang puteh seller meant was “merely farts”, and it definitely affect national security! Remember, mineral water bottle can cause a revolution, by UMNO mentality that is.

    Actually to be honest, the job of Home Minister in Malaysia, if its performance were to match world top class standard, is highly challenging one requiring really a high-functioning mind with high level of multiple skills..Hishamuddin, by his track record, at Youth Sport Ministry, Education and since becoming Home Minister, shows he is not in that category.

    Threats of terrorism, drug and money laundering, illegal immigration, global and even local ever sophisticated crime syndicate, local social ills etc.- these problems are now highly complex requiring highly skilled people, sophisticated knowledge, technology and infrastruture. Even in developed countries of North America and Europe find it challenging and Malaysia is now increasing even more important crossroads of these things..

    Hishamuddin, throughout his career, has never proven himself at the forefront of much of these skills necessary..

    Anything that might adversely affect the UMNO / BN government and puts them in a bad light is classified as a ‘national threat’.

    Moderated for using a word with ‘a.s’ in it. Here is the ‘clean’ version:

    Anything that might adversely affect the UMNO / BN government and puts them in a bad light is cla.sified as a ‘national threat’.

    High Court judge says the Home Minister is tainted with irrationality.

    I always thought so too.
