Is the real reason for the 46 days of government inaction against the two school principals for incendiary, racist and insensitive statements because they cannot be faulted as this was exactly the “official ideology” which BTN had been indoctrinating civil servants past two decades?

All Malaysians want to know whether the scandal of the 46-day inaction by the Najib administration against the two school principals who made incendiary, racist and insensitive statements against students in schools will be top on the agenda of Wednesday’s Cabinet meeting or whether Cabinet Ministers would be like the traditional three monkeys with eyes that see not, ears that hear not and mouths that speak not!

Noises are being made by MCA, Gerakan and MIC outside the Cabinet protesting against the Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s statement claiming that he is powerless to do anything against the two principals as this falls within the ambit and jurisdiction of the Public Services Department and the Chief Secretary – but all these are empty posturings by these political parties when their Ministers in Cabinet maintain a discreet and self-serving silence on this issue.

In fact, the question must be asked in Cabinet, Parliament and the country whether the real reason for the 46-day government inaction against the two school principals who publicly made a mockery of Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Raza’s 1Malaysia policy is because they could not be faulted because what they said was exactly the “official ideology” which Biro Tata Negara of the Prime Minister’s Department had been indoctrinating civil servants in the past two decades!

Is this the reason why Muhyiddin had been thunderously silent in not condemning the two school principals for their incendiary, racist and insensitive statements, telling Chinese students to go back to China and likening Hindu prayer bracelets to a dog leash, because such offensive remarks were quite in line with the poison which BTN had been dishing out to civil servants in the past two decades?

In the Cabinet in the past 18 months, Muhyiddin had stood out as the champion of the anti-national and anti-1Malaysia poison spouted by BTN, which was why Muhyiddin had done the following:

• Defended the racist “brain washing” and indoctrination on “ketuanan Melayu” by Biro Tata Negara despite criticisms and expose of its racist, divisive and seditious content for the past two decades;

• Mitigated the Nasir Safar outrage claiming that it could have been “a slip of the tongue” when Najib’s senior political aide labelled Indians and Chinese in Malaysia as “pendatang”, alleging that the Chinese came as beggars and the Chinese women as “prostitutes”; claimed that Umno was solely responsible in drafting the constitution sidelining the contribution of MCA and MIC; and issued the threat to revoke the citizenship of those vocal about the subject cap for SPM examination.

• Maintained a conspicuous silence at the JAKIM (Islamic Development Department of the Prime Minister’s Office) forum at the end of January for 800 civil servants tantamount to an insurrection against Najib’s 1Malaysia concept – with government speakers making inflammatory and incendiary speeches, blaming Christians for provoking Muslim anger by challenging the ban on the use of the word “Allah” and Umno/BN politicians for failing to defend Islam, with one speaker suggesting that a repeat of the May 13 riots was possible if the Christians, whom he accused of practising “extremism” did not “back down”, uttering the threat: “Who knows, there might be a Feb. 13?”

• Also kept a conspicuous silence when the racialist rantings of Umno executive secretary Datuk Abdul Rauf Yusoh at an Umno club function in London in March this year was exposed;

• Aided and abetted the inflammatory and incendiary campaign by Umno-controlled media like Utusan Malaysia, Berita Harian, government television and radio stations, playing the race and religious cards to viciously and falsely paint Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and Pakatan Rakyat Penang State Government as “anti-Malay” and “anti-Islam”; and

• Declared that he is “Malay first and Malaysian second” which is not only against Najib’s 1Malaysia concept but served as a rallying point against Najib and any meaningful flowering of the 1Malaysia concept.

The proclamation by the BTN deputy director Hamim Husin to a Puteria Umno closed-door function that Malay rights is a mandate to rule the country (Malaysian Insider) is the latest proof that the biggest enemy to Najib’s 1Malaysia is from within his own camp, not only Umno but also BTN in government.

When the BTN can continue its offensive, insensitive and racist “brain washing” not only among civil servants but extend it to political activists in Umno circles like Umno Putri, it is clear that Najib is facing an open revolt, which clearly has the backing of Muhyiddin.

This shambolic anarchy in the Najib premiership cannot continue or it will drive away all interested investments in Malaysia, whether foreign or domestic and condemn Malaysia to the fate of a new failed state in the world.

The Cabinet meeting on Wednesday must take a stand, not only to end the 46-day government inaction against the two principals for their incendiary, racist and insensitive statements; on firm action against BTN by closing down the government “brain-washing” unit which is openly revolting against Najib’s 1Malaysia concept but also on whether the Cabinet fully endorse Najib’s 1Malaysia policy or otherwise.

    The end of year school holidays are fast approaching. The two school principals will then be presented with an all-expenses paid holiday around the world tour with their families until January 2011. By then, the fiasco would have been forgotten.

    Do you expect an indulgent child to reply when he is caught with his hand in the cookie jar? Do you expect a cheating wife/husband to answer his family when he/she is caught red-handed? And its a lot worst, in Muhiyiddin case. He think he is entitled to have his hand in the cookie jar, he think he is entitled to cheat on those he is responsible to.

    Mr. Excuses w Thick-skin will not even flinch even if a hurricane comes through and destroy us all so long as he is safe and comfortable in his ill-gotten palace.

    BTN is an agency in the PM’s department. I rest my case.

    And what is a Govt agency spending taxpayers’ money giving political talks to a political party? They cannot diffentiate between party and Govt.

    without doubt BN is just grabbing for straw at this juncture. Over the past generation, it had just concentrating on finding the easy way out of this Flat World where others are working hard to remain relevance in this competitive world. I was indeed surprised that in spite of our so-called open democratic procedures, we hide behind closed doors to cheat the public, open fora are held just for the sake of telling the world that we have done what needed to be done! They forget, they are cheating the voters who are better informed than their forefathers. As for those in such institutions as BTN, they are just being paid like the Gestapoes to sell an idea which they themselves can only believe in; while the rest of the world would laugh at it! How would they ever sell an idea when the sellers themselves are found short of both ideas and grey matter? To me, it is an indication that desperation has taken over the whole situation. They just want to convince themselves that their medicine is working as in reality, they themselves do not believe it al all!!!

    Whilst the PM was making his call at the UN General Assembly that moderates should fight and marginalize extremists the deputy director of BTN – a department under the PM – was calling derogatorily Chinese as ‘si mata sepet’ and Indian as ‘si botol’ .

    All these are happening even before the dust of the controversy of the Kulai’s principal’s racist statements – in asking her Chinese and Indian pupils as penumpang to return to their respective countries of origin and the prayer strings tied around the necks and wrists of Indian students were similar to dog leashes – have yet settled!

    What a joke that the country’s leader is preaching the marginalization of extremists to the international community when the backyard is reeking with extremism.

    What bullying pengetuas ! No wonder Datuk Koh advise not to give face and space to extremism as reported in the news. Why should you give the free 3 years’ passage for badly behaving workers and new good workers got none ? If you catch your child with his hand in the cookie jar, he will reply mom, it is lunch and you have not cooked yet. And if your wife finds out your hanky panky, tell her that is your unknown official too second wife. If that is what you want to believe. Remember in the civil service, there is still a small quota for Chineses and for Indians.

    Well the si mata sepet and si botol are the ones paying for the si parasites free meals. Like the working cows in the field, you can see the si kutu sucking the cows blood night and day like it is their ketuanan rights.

    “Si parasite”

    What a powerfully apt description.

    Well done undertaker888.

    Najib spoke against extremism in the UN assembly but he practises it at home, at least he still wants UMNO to be in good term with Perkasa. Najib should first determine whether Perkasa is an extremist organization. If he thinks it is not, then there is no extremism in the world, and his words at the UN carry no meaning at all. If Perkasa is extremist, why did Najib as President of UMNO did not demand that UMNO members cease their membership with Perkasa? Is Najib afraid of Mamakthir?
