Stunt-man politicians

JUNE 4 — “Actors” are running amok in Malaysia these days, with their mouths and actions.

First there was the sometimes DPM (sometimes because sometimes he behaves like the PM) Muhyiddin Yassin saying that that the skirmish at Bersih 3.0 was a precursor to violence by Pakatan Rakyat once they lose the elections.

Today, Information Minister Rais Yatim said that Anwar Ibrahim must behave like a gentleman and accept the election results and not riot, etc.

It is interesting till today Najib Razak has not given his word that the BN will leave Putrajaya peacefully if it loses the election. You know why he is silent? Because his party has already unleashed the troublemakers and they are called Perkasa, Pekida, the petty traders association and the Rempits.

In fact, not one senior Umno leader has said that they will accept the people’s verdict.

I am tickled that Muhyiddin and Rais (yes, Malaysians, this is the quality of our ministers) are reading from the same script. The script is aimed at creating the impression that the opposition and Bersih are troublemakers/spoilsports and that BN is confident of victory.

Let me tackle the notion that BN is confident of victory. Could this be the reason why till today the PM is dithering over the date of the polls and the de facto PM Mahathir Mohamad says that the government is weak?

I suppose fiddling with the electoral rolls is a sign of strength as is the use of thugs to disrupt opposition rallies as is the unprecedented use of government funds to buy support, pay cybertroopers.

I get the game being played by Muhyiddin and Rais. They expect some trouble if/when BN lose and they are laying the foundation to blame the opposition/Bersih.

But most Malaysians know the machinations of Umno/BN. We have lived with scoundrels for a long time.

    As far as I see thing, BN will not lose.

    There will be much vote stuffing.

    If that don’t work there is always 513, unleash Perkasa and tell them to go wild. Then called for curfew and emergency power.

    Blame it all on the non-malays and opposition. Arrest the leaders of the opposition and tell the rest to join BN or the country will go into anarchy they will join their leaders in jail. Opposition politicians either see who has the power and join or are too patriotic to see Malaysia go up in flames and join BN. (See powerplay of 513 + Ops lalang)


    BN can not lose, will not lose. Access to Malaysia’s treasury is worth hundreds of billions. Nobody will willing let of so much free money.

    Now what shall we do when BN goes vote-stuffing, uses illegal immigrants to vote and has UMNO strongmen as electoral commission leaders?

    UMNO has shown its colours – thugs, stones,police brutality – whether it was Bersih 3.0 or Johor, Melaka or Lembah Pantai. Police didn’t see the stones or thugs. Tell me a bigger joke than this!

    What shall we do with such thuggery?

    The former igp Musa was also impressive. He impressed his fist into Anwar’s right eye……
