All hail Dr M?

APRIL 1 — I am thankful to The Malaysian Insider for giving publicity to whatever Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is saying these days.

Because it allows more Malaysians to appreciate what a fraud he is and understand that a vote for BN is a vote for Dr Mahathir.

These are my reasons for calling Dr Mahathir a fake, a Petaling Street knock-off, a politician who will say anything or do anything to perpetuate the system of excesses which he put in place.

● Fraud 1

Dr Mahathir goes around the country urging Umno members to stay united and not sabotage candidates and help Datuk Seri Najib Razak win big. That is like a serial thief urging his offspring to stay on the straight.

Wasn’t Dr Mahathir the biggest sabotage king in 2008 when he left Umno and undermined Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, allegedly because Abdullah was leading Malaysia to ruin.

I think a more plausible reason for Dr Mahathir’s tantrums was that Abdullah refused to allow him to be the de facto PM as he seems to be these days.

After not getting his way, he left the party and damaged it and played some role in BN’s poor performance in 2008. And yet he is lecturing his party members on loyalty. Says a lot about this man’s hide and much more about the spineless members in Umno.

● Fraud 2

Dr Mahathir is urging Johor voters to send Lim Kit Siang packing, noting that the DAP politician does not know when to retire.

Yes, it would be nice for political renewal to take place at a faster place in political parties in Malaysia but Dr Mahathir is not qualified to talk about retiring.

Officially, he retired in 2003 October but we know that Dr Mahathir is, in reality, still very active. Besides working with Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to force Abdullah down, he is constantly breathing down Najib’s neck.

Why, only recently he said that the PM could have to go if the election results were worse than 2008? And hasn’t he been giving his input on candidates, etc?

The difference with Kit Siang is that he has stayed loyal to his party and the political process. Maybe he has stayed on too long but he has been open about it, unlike some pretender who says he has retired but is still mucking about and wanting the limelight.

● Fraud 3

Dr Mahathir says that non-Malays, especially the Chinese, should support the BN. But not all of us have short memories.

In May 2008 in Johor, Dr Mahathir warned the Malays that the non-Malays were getting too big for their boots and said that they would be marginalised if they kept quiet. He painted a scary scenario for the Malays and framed the non-Malays as the bad guys.

Now with the elections around the corner and needing votes, the chameleon changes his colours once again.

The irony for me is that people used to accuse Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim of being a fraud but when I watch his ceramahs on YouTube, I notice that even in a Malay setting he is fair to non-Malays.

So I am pleased that more publicity is given to Dr Mahathir Mohamad, a man who still believes that he is the PM of Malaysia.

    ///a vote for BN is a vote for Dr Mahathir.///

    A vote for MCA is a vote for Perkasa since Perkasa is made up of a large number of Umno members (80% ?).

    If nobody pays any attention to Dr M,then there will be no reason for him to bark,bark and bark.Because as Sharifah said,there will be nobody to listen,listen and listen.

    I have been saying that that mamakkutty is a fake malay. He is more than that. He is a fake malaysian. He has done more harm than good for Malaysian. To get rid of him, we have to get rid of Bn/umnoB. ABU them out of Putrajaya!!!!!!!!!

    He should have spent his remaining years repenting of his past mistakes, excesses and misdeeds instead of wasting time on gutter politics. Only then could his cherished wish of being closer to God be realized.

    Yes Mahathir is a fraud and a great liar. Remember what he told when he retire. He said that he will not be like Lee Kuan Yew who still gets himself involve in politics after retirement. He tells the whole world that when he retire he retires permanently and will not get involve in politics and worst still he plays racial politics to the hilt. I am sure what he said can be found is some of the leading new papers archives.

    One has to be insane enough to listen or even believe in what Mahathir has had to say today. His testimony speaks for itself. We have this “I did it my way” statesman and his great vision in leading the country to what it is today to thank for. Heil Mahathir!

    To the one who talked of the best equation anywhere it is in multi-racial Malaysia should get his colored @ss back here close enough to smell the hibiscus. We are not accustomed to the comforts that Big Apple can provide from the Empress Tower.

    Why doesn’t PKR bring Dr. Mahatir on board? Trying dangling a carrot before his eyes. You know which carrot he most wants these days! Money? No, no no. He has much of that already!

  16. #16 by Bigjoe on Wednesday, 3 April 2013 - 4:59 pm

    As expected Mahathir says LKS should retire WHEN Himself is leading UMNO/BN GE war-room.

    Someone should go ask him why don ‘t he return the BILLIONS he stolen since he is so old.Its not like he can take it with him when he goes..

    This MAMAK already given up all hope of being one statesman and goes the other extreme, A PAR*AH.
    But with the STOLEN Billions in hand, monies with AK, VT,etc, ; companies worth Billions under nominees still in his control, and Petronas still in control, AND Perkasa, And able to TOKOK, Spin , Sandiwara, C4 in control,,,, ALL able to get away with it so far.
    ONLY Pakatan and AI make him squirm like a snake now. Hence, MAMAK at his age still need to campaign as is a HUGE stake and own preservation for him now. MaMak knows he has all Bumno/bn espicially C4, Moo under his thumb/feet to put his son in succession plan.
    NOW, this MAMAK knows he has his own (specific) audience AND all his TOKOK is just DIVERSIONARY.
    C4-Bumno has Lots, Lots of Wrongdoings to show TOTAL incompetencies, Corrupt to the core,,,,,,,
    Choose, Pick the Fights effectively The Pakatan Rakyat’s way forward to occupy Putrajaya.
    (not/ less on Bumno spin, sandiwara)
