This blog received a comment today saying that BN supporters deserved to be called names like “running dog”, etc.
Pakatan supporters are fond of using pseudonyms like Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia, Malaysian(this-and-that) or ‘peace’, ‘fairnessforall’, ‘fairplay’, etc. Screenshot below is one guy calling himself ‘truth’.

‘truth’ says that if he sees my ugly face in the street, he would really like to spit in it — in my “dumb” and “ugly face”, that is.
One thing I find about hardcore Pakatan supporters is that they seem unable to open their mouth without the spit coming out — whether it’s to spit out curses or to blame BN, to call nasty nicknames (especially with regard to the PM), and well, just to relieve all the bile that they’ve bottled up.
As we know, the Pakatan supporters are always calling the BN supporters “racists”. Similarly, the Pakatan supporters also insist that it is the BN supporters who are spitting venom.
Do try to imagine what the political temperature must have been like during the campaign month in May when the 1969 over-heated election took place as well as what kind of names the Alliance and the opposition supporters then were calling each other.
The first general election post-Merdeka was held in 1959, following approval of the one million non-Malay citizenships. The following GE was in 1964, a year after the inclusion of Singapore in 1963.
Then came the 1969 election. We should remember the social dynamics of 1969 in relation to the two elections that came before it in 1964 and 1959.
History, for the Pakatan supporters however, started at Year Zero (8 March 2008). Well, you know what they say about people who neither remember nor learn from history.
What kind of people are they?
To understand the psychology of May 13, an important question to reflect upon is:
What kind of people were they? (on the one side, the taunters and on the other side, the ones who went amok with parang)
Shuhaimi Baba’s film Tanda Putera is set against the backdrop of May 13.
And below we get a reprise of the “running dog” theme. We’re not talking anymore about anonymous online commenters here. The phrase is contained in a Malaysiakini headline.
It’s very important to note Lim Guan Eng’s role in this (see screenshot below) because the behaviour of Penang Chinese opposition supporters is a significant factor.
