Who lied – Najib/Muhyiddin or Chua Soi Lek? Or all three?

The 65th UMNO General Assembly closed yesterday with one big question among thinking and patriotic Malaysians, regardless of political affiliation: – “Who lied – Najib/Muhyiddin or Chua Soi Lek? Or all three?”

At first the lies and poison were only told and used at closed-door UMNO meetings. Then they were spread by anonymous UMNO blogs and cybertroopers on the Internet, followed by the UMNO media.

When these lies and poison failed to achieve the desired public and political impact with the approach of the 13th General Elections, UMNO strategists became more irresponsible, reckless and desperate.

In the past week, these lies and poison became the staple diet of UMNO leaders in the meetings preparatory to and during the sessions proper of the 65th UMNO General Assembly, with the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, in their capacities as UMNO President and UMNO Deputy President giving their personal stamp of approval by adopting and retailing these lies and poison to sway votes in favour of UMNO in the coming polls.

Culminating in Muhyiddin and Najib, one UMNO leader after another in the past week have taken to the public pulpit in a carefully-orchestrated campaign to demonise the DAP and frighten Malay voters with the lies that the Malays will lose their rights and power should Pakatan Rakyat win more federal seats in the next general election, or in the words of the UMNO information chief Datuk Ahmad Maslan, “the Malay language will be lost, say goodbye to the Malay Sultans, Say goodbye to Islam because they (DAP) are agents of Christianisation”.

Muhyiddin was completely unabashed in playing the race card when he falsely accused the DAP of being anti-Malay, anti-Islam and anti-Malay Rulers, even telling the lie that the DAP’s agenda is to establish a Republic in Malaysia.

Muhyiddin made history as the only Deputy Prime Minister in the world who was caught out telling a bare-faced lie, for he had been completely silent to my challenge to him to substantiate his allegation that the DAP wanted to abolish the constitutional monarchy and establish a Republic.

I had publicly said that Muhyiddin’s “despicable, irresponsible, incendiary and seditious” allegation that the DAP’s agenda is to form a republic is completely founded on a lie, particularly his rhetorical question to buttress his allegation:

“If not, do they dare to suggest the prime minister’s position be selected based solely on elections and without being chosen by the Yang di Pertuan Agong? What is the meaning of this?” (Muhyiddin quote)

This suggestion and rhetorical question are a complete figment of Muhyiddin’s imagination (or that of his ghost writer) and show the length certain irresponsible, unprincipled and unscrupulous UMNO leaders are prepared to go in order to tell lies and spread poison to mislead, scare and panic the voters in multi-racial Malaysia.

This is certainly not the action of an honest, honourable, principled and patriotic Malaysian political leader.

As I had declared for the record in my immediate response on Wednesday to Muhyiddin’s falsehood, DAP had never proposed that “the Prime Minister’s position be selected based solely on elections and without being chosen by the Yang di Pertuan Agong”.

Right from the beginning, the DAP had declared in Parliament in my first speech 40 years ago in Parliament on Feb. 23, 1971 that DAP fully supported the system of constitutional monarchy and that we “do not and have not questioned the sovereignty of Rulers”.

In his winding-up speech yesterday as UMNO President, Najib adopted the Muhyiddin and UMNO lie that DAP is manipulating PKR and PAS, specifically alleging that PAS is “under the thumb” of DAP.

This line of allegation is totally at variance with the accusations which the MCA President Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek and his cohorts have been hurling against the DAP – that the DAP is the stooge of the PAS.

Who has lied? Najib and Muhyiddin or Chua Soi Lek?

The UMNO and MCA leaders cannot all be telling the truth – as the DAP cannot be a stooge of PAS and PAS also a stooge of DAP one and the same time.

Either UMNO or MCA leaders have lied.

There is of course another scenario – which is the true and correct position. Najib, Muhyiddin and Chua Soi Lek have all lied.

Unlike Barisan Nasional where UMNO is the hegemon and the other Barisan Nasional political parties completely subservient to UMNO agenda and interests, Pakatan Rakyat is a coalition of equal political parties based on mutual respect and political consensus founded on common policy programmes founded on the fundamental features of the Malaysian Constitution.

In Pakatan Rakyat, no political party plays the role of Big Brother like UMNO in Barisan Nasional – which means that Najib, Muhyiddin and Chua Soi Lek have all been perpetuating lies in their struggle to keep their political parties alive in the next general election.

The Malays will not lose power when PR win more seats in the next general election as those who will really lose power will be UMNO and UMNO-putras.

In fact, the ordinary Malays stand to gain more rights and power when PR win more seats in the next general elections as UMNO and UMNO-putras will have to return and surrender the rights and power that they have seized and hijacked from the ordinary Malays in the past few decades.

    If the founder of UMNO B party.. Mahathir can utter….14 times…”I forgot” to questions asked by a team of highly respected Royal Commissioners..lying wholesale to them……what do you expect from his UMNO b buggers?
    All must follow the leader of the band…..or robbers and thieves.

    Its not whether they lied. They have been doing it a while. What they did was put lies as the centerpiece of their political strategy. Its one thing to make lies part of one’s tool of politics, its quite another to make it the basis of your political movement. Even Mahathir has avoided that in all his years in power although he was clearly the father of all these lies.

    The issue is what happens when these lies become THE political movement. Its basically become ponzi scheme. The question is how quickly it will fall apart and THAT is a function of several things some within and some without PR’s control.

    The issue really is the insanity of making lies THE basis of governance. It simply just never been possible. But people have paid terrible prices for it. The issue is can we avoid it?

    ///DEC 4 — There is one law for Umno and another for the rest of Malaysia. Najib Razak aka Mr Teflon said so as much when he declared proudly that Umno knows how to handle its “controversial” leaders.

    This was in reference to the National Feedlot Corporation scandal and the stench attached to Shahrizat Jalil and her family. Incidentally, this was one of the first comments made by Najib on the scandal of the year and that too in such an oblique manner. That to me says a lot about the man and his principles. But let us get back to the question of how Umno disciplines its own “controversial” leaders.

    Ali Rustam: found guilty of corruption in Umno elections but still around as the chief minister of Malacca.

    Ahmad Ismail: guilt of sedition and a whole host of other offences when he labelled non-Malays as pendatang. Still the division chief in Penang.

    Hishammuddin Hussein: infamous for wielding the keris, endorsing the cow head protest and ordering the use of force against citizens of the country. Still a minister.

    Ahmad Zahid Hamidi: accused in 1998 by no less than Dr Mahathir Mohamad of amassing wealth beyond anything imaginable for someone of his background. A minister and possible future prime minister.

    Khairy Jamaluddin: let off with a warning by Umno’s disciplinary board for money politics. Dr Mahathir found it distasteful that Khairy was allowed to contest the Pemuda Umno chief’s position despite evidence of vote-buying. Still the Pemuda chief and could be a minister.

    The list goes on…Muhammad Muhammad Taib, Isa Samad…None of them were charged in court. They went before the kangaroo court of Umno.

    In contrast, if any one of us was caught for corruption, we would have been hauled by MACC and charged in court. And Najib so smugly declares that Umno has its own way of handling its “controversial” leaders.

    So damn smug.

    * Tan Teck Huat reads The Malaysian Insider.///–MalaysiaInsider

    That UMNO and Najib practices double standards are facts. But as the government leaders, their actions show that the government practices rule by law. The laws of the country are for the people ruled by UMNO controlled government to follow. UMNO leaders are above the laws.

    Najib said that Saiful sued Anwar, and the government did not. If it is true that the government is not involved, then Saiful could only sue Anwar, in a civil suit. Since when by claiming consensual sex elevated Saiful to government position to make Anwar face criminal charge. Indeed a civil suit can very well be settled out of court, if Saiful gets more benefits. Clearly with UMNO’s rule by law, Saiful would be dead if he tries. But what then is it the business of the government to charge Anwar on criminal case?

    Even if it was true that Anwar and Saiful were involved in consensual act, why should one become the accused and another become the witness, when both parties are guilty of the offence.

    If unnatural sex is an offence, there must be thousands of cases judging by the fact that people openly demand recognition for same gender partnership. Would Najib agree that these people were also involved in Saiful’s type of sexual activities? Indeed there is a head of a BN component party which has records on video that he was involved in unnatural sex. Is Najib suggesting that the Act with respect to unnatural sex can only be invoked by the consensual partner to the activity?

    They can say whatever they want, but the average Malay isn’t ignorant of the facts. I hear that the whispers in the corridors of the UMNO building have been on (a) who has been behind the cow-and-condo scam, and (b) who is behind the next big scam of supplying 200 ambulances to the Ministry of Health.

    Umno’s days are numbered – many Malays and non-Malays now realize that it is a corrupt, rotten party which only looks after its cronies.

    Being a moribund party, Umno has no choice but to resort to lying in order to survive one day at a time.

    Only those with retarded minds will believe their lies. How is DAP to christianise the nation or turn it into a republic when the army, navy and police are Malay-controlled? Such lies will not help UNMOB win more Malay votes, only the opposite. Most educated and modern-minded Malaysian Malays will be more angry with UNMOB leaders who they feel are taking them for idiots to want them to believe. Furthermore, UNMOB leaders have disgraced the Malay race and Islam by giving the world a bad impression by spreading such irresponsible and dangerous lies. UNMOputras still think they are the smarter Malays.

    Admittedly the “lies” of late appear even more brazen. Maybe it is in part due to desperation: a recognition that UMNO’s hegemony is not assured, come next election. Their lies increase in proportion to the truth you expose of them (for eg CattleGate) Maybe they would tell less lies about you (DAP) if you can tell less truth about them! Yet telling lies to scapegoat DAP is intrinsic part of political DNA. This is because they present themselves as protector/champion of their traditional constituency, an intrinsic part of which is the manipulation of their fears and insecurities. The idea is to scapegoat an “enemy” (whether DAP, evangelists influencing apostates or any group convenient to name) as source of their problems so that the constituency may unite behind the protector to eliminate the “enemy” as a means to solving their problems.

    The masses that form the voting bank are not exactly connoisseurs of truth. Tell them lies repeatedly often enough they may just believe everything wholesale. Julius Caesar once said, “Fere libenter homines id quod volunt credunt.” In Latin it means “men willingly believe what they wish.” Politicians lie as they assume that the majority of people simply believe lies easier if it’s what they already believe or like to believe than to check out the truth, which is harder work. This ever the bane of democracy based on one man one vote system, where there are disproportionately more people who are susceptible to believe political lies of those who masquerade as their champion than think for themselves.

    How to cheat during elections—–

    the pens at booths in school #1114 were filled with invisible ink.

    ballot boxes had arrived at a polling site one-third filled with votes.

    an election official at polling station #2501 filling out ballots as he sat at his desk.

    Several users filmed buses, nicknamed “carousels”, which appeared to be carrying the same people to various stations so they could vote over and over again.
