Zahid’s friends should fear him more than his enemies do

Kakakakakaka … oh, look, it’s KJ!

Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is wildly popular among some segments of the Malay crowd. The Home Minister’s popularity is nothing to be surprised about. Guan Eng, for example, is so popular among many Chinese that at times he needs a human chain linked around him — not to protect him against hecklers but from his over-eager, adoring fans.

“DAP SuperCyber Bully” @imokman (Ong Kian Ming) is popular too. He is “a star!’

Khairy Jamaluddin is popular. He has 368,167 Twitter followers. Shahrizat is hugely popular among her Wanita Umno members. But despite the big fan clubs, all the aforementioned political personalities are bad news for their party.

Doubtless Zahid’s tough guy act has won him many Umno admirers. But with or without Zahid, would these individuals ever have voted the opposition in the last election? No, right?

Okay, now supposing the impossible happens and Zahid is knocked off his vice presidency perch. Would these same individuals who are the Zahid cheerleaders be psychologically affected by his fate so much so that in the next GE they refuse to vote Umno or otherwise cast their ballot for PAS or PKR? The answer is still ‘no’, am I correct?

So there is really nothing Zahid can do, and nor is there anything that he can fail to do, which might cause a shift to either direction the core Umno support (i.e. those forming an identical subset with his current Malay fans). In other words, Zahid’s antics neither takes away from nor in any way adds to Umno’s vote bank within the party milieu.

However Zahid’s behaviour is most certainly costing Umno among the more objective observers outside.

Zaid on Zahid

Zaid Ibrahim, the former law minister, has called for Zahid’s sacking. According to Zaid, the “shoot first” approach to law enforcement as advocated by Zahid signals that there is “no need for investigation and public trial”.

“Zahid Hamidi should be replaced immediately if the PM is to salvage anything left of his administration,” Zaid told The Malay Mail Online via email (source: Yahoo! News).

MCA deputy president Liow Tiong Lai urged Zahid “to stop spreading unfounded racial statements that will create discomfort among other races” while Kedah Gerakan chief Tan Keng Liang called on the BN to take disciplinary action against Zahid “for making the statement that could stir racial tension” (source: FMT).

MCA vice president Gan Ping Sieu harrumphed that Zahid’s remark was “most unbecoming” (source: TMI).

Echoing Gan in rebuking Zahid’s conduct as “unbecoming of a minister” is Gerakan vice-president A. Kohilan Pillay who said in a press statement: “This will only anger the public more, causing the reputation of the force which is already in the gutter to plunge deeper” (source: The Malaysian Times).

The Bar Council condemned the recent statements by Zahid as shameful and having brought “the government and the country into disrepute” (source: TMI).

Hindraf is alarmed that Zahid is creating “very dangerous tendencies” with his racially inflammatory statements.

The organization’s national advisor N. Ganesan cautioned how the dangerous part is that such statements, coming from a minister, will open up “all kinds of possibilities for the most right wing elements … being given open licences to muscle their positions along this racial line and extend what the minister has implied, deeper into the fabric of our society” (source: fz.com).

PKR’s Human Rights & Legal Bureau deputy chairman S. Jayathas described the home minister as a “gangster” (source: TMI). Meanwhile The J-Star only too happily carried the following headline: ‘Zahid Hamidi slammed [by lawyers] for alleged ‘shoot first’ and gangster ‘friends’ remarks’.

Note that I’ve not quoted Ambiga or any of the DAP politicians calling for his removal. Even Zahid’s own side among the BN people who find it difficult to condone his behaviour are too many already.

Various NGOs called for Zahid’s sacking (source: FMT).

The Chinese newspaper editors association said “race relations in Malaysia had been deteriorating steadily since the May 5 general election, with certain politicians raising sensitive issues to gain political mileage” in its statement of regret over Zahid (source: Malaysiakini).

Lowyat — a Top 15 local website hosting a cili padi discussion board – put up a Kopitiam thread titled ‘People getting angrier at Zahid Hamidi‘.

Zahid’s rant: Video that’s gone viral

Hear him for yourself.

The following federal ministers are among Zahid’s Umno colleagues in Cabinet — Shafie Apdal, Mustapa Mohamed, Shabery Cheek, Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah, Anifah Aman, Rohani Abdul Karim, Hasan Malek, Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, Idris Jusoh, Shahidan Kassim, Abdul Rahman Dahlan.

None of them are anywhere near as controversial as Zahid, with perhaps the sole exception of Nazri Aziz.

The Prime Minister Najib Razak and his deputy Muhyiddin Yassin do not lose their temper in public. Even the keris-waver Hishammuddin Hussein had not gone visibly berserk.

Ex-premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad was at the pinnacle of power for 22 years and he has never lost his composure.

Zahid has only been the Home Minister for six months but yet managed to raise the ire of almost every cross-section of Malaysian society bar the Umno rightists. The pro-establishment elements who are Zahid’s fan base should ponder on this fact.

Winning the battle and losing the war

When the jaguh kampung beats the war drums, he wins the chest-thumping contest among the Umno hawks. But that’s merely menang sorak, kampung tergadai.

Remember that BN won 47 percent of the popular vote in GE13 to the opposition’s 51 percent. If you still cannot see why Zahid is self-destructive to Umno, then you haven’t learned the lesson on why BN is lagging behind in securing public confidence.

I’m going to make a prediction that the ‘Allah’ verdict, to be delivered by the Court of Appeal next week on the eve of Hari Raya Korban, will go the way of the government. This means the native Christian votes in Sabah and Sarawak are no longer fixed deposits for the BN, especially not when DAP’s ‘Impian Sarawak’ project is setting up branches in 21 rural constituencies in the state.

On account of the misadventures of Zahid alone, how many more percentages do you reckon that the popular support for BN will nosedive? In the closely fought constituencies, a thin margin of 2-3% can make the difference between victory and defeat.

If you think that Shahrizat was damaging to BN’s fortunes, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Zahid’s loose cannon has the potential to ‘fire at will’ and inflict untold damage to the electoral chances of anyone in the BN. In the past GE, the inadvertent victims of similar circumstances were Saifuddin Abdullah and Ali Rustam who failed to retain/capture their seats.

Thus it is Zahid’s own party and coalition allies who should fear him more than his enemies do.

  1. Dear Helen,

    With due respect, I have to disagree. Its not about Zahid. Its about standing up to the cocky tokong and the gang. Zahid embodies that.

    The thing is with 2/3 Malays are with Umno, being assertive and certain against the tirade of lim guan eng and the gang is what Malays including non umno’s want. Many Malays voted Umno not because they support it 100% but because of the threat of the unity of Chinese under DAP that bulldoze against anything Malay without impunity. The Allah issue is a case in point.

    Zahid is refreshing from the defensive Najib. Malays are nowadays so shameful for being a Malay and scared being called racist. DAP has turned anything Malay as racist but anything Chinese as Malaysian. Zahid embodies a person who dare to stand up against the racist dap. And we need more of him. So let us put LGE in his rightful place.

    Ps. I am a resident head and always advocate that people who threatens my family and neighbours are not deserving any sympathy. The guards will do what is ‘necessary’ before handing the beaten up robbers or snatch thatchers to me and the police.

    I have no sympathy to those who threatened and tie up my kids and family. Security first.

    1. Re. Zahid is refreshing from the defensive Najib

      Zahid is the 180 degree of H20, the former Menteri Amaran. I have said this before Najib will remain as Najib, but his people will do the work for him. It is a “carrot and stick strategy” from now on. How much more the Chinese Vote that UMNO/BN going to lose? the remaining 5 % or less who are currently residing in Pakatan vote banks?

      For instance, I voted in Parliament Batu i.e. MCA vs PKR, where Tian Chua is the current MP. In the next PRU, with or without my vote PKR will still win the seat as the area is the Chinese majority constituency. It is not UMNO’s job to deliver the seat in that constituency but “USELESS, HOPELESS and GOOD FOR NOTHING” MCA. Come rain or shine, the Chinese won’t give their vote to MCA.

      DPM is less vocal than Zahid does, for that is his promise, when appointed as the number 2, to quote him “Jadi orang nombor 2, mesti berlagak sebagai orang nombor 2” something to the effect, where he will not in any way to outdo and outshine PM. Prior to Zahid, you could ask any Chnise wherher they like DPM or otherwise. Zahid is taking over from the Menteri Amaran which has done zilch in his capacity. It is no longer “Tidak Apa” attitude from the Malay that he is portraying now. Cina Cina DAP ini semua harus diajar dari sekarang kerana perangai BIADAP mereka dah sampai seperti cacing naik kemata.

      UMNO/BN has to forget about the Chinese vote altogether since they are one who is asking for it. All UMNO/BN needs to do now is to consolidate and solidify the Malay vote in Kelantan, Terengganu, Kedah, Perak and Johor.

      The last PRK in Kuala Besut had shown an encouraging support by the Malays to UMNO over PAS. PRK Sungai Limau will be another test. For the record, Sungai Limau is PAS stronghold.

      Re. Malays are nowadays so shameful for being a Malay and scared being called racist.

      Maybe it is just you, I myself am proud to be called an ULTRA MALAY RACIST and will remain one till the end of time.

      BTW, where is this entry heading to Helen? Are you saying that now Zahid should crawl on his knees to pacify the oppositions voters and the fence sitters ?

      1. re: “How much more the Chinese Vote that UMNO/BN going to lose? the remaining 5 % or less who are currently residing in Pakatan vote banks?”

        I agree with you that the BN war room should regard that they will not be getting any more Chinese votes than in GE13, and even maintaining that figure is a bonus.

        However, the Chinese control some key areas, like English media. Foreign correspondents and their news agencies mostly read English and not the Tamil, Malay or Chinese newspapers. Therefore the narrative going out to the international audience is coloured by Pakatan propaganda.

        Also the English-speaking Indians (Ambiga, for instance) control the NGOs. Look at the names of the activists: Irene Fernandez, Josie Fernandez, Cynthia Gabriel, etc

        re: “It is not UMNO’s job to deliver the seat in that constituency but “USELESS, HOPELESS and GOOD FOR NOTHING” MCA. Come rain or shine, the Chinese won’t give their vote to MCA.”

        I’ve said before, KOMA — Kick Out MCA Already.

        re: “Prior to Zahid, you could ask any Chnise wherher they like DPM or otherwise.”

        Yup, Zahid has taken over from Muhyiddin as the favourite target of the Firster opposition.

        re: “Cina Cina DAP ini semua harus diajar dari sekarang kerana perangai BIADAP mereka dah sampai seperti cacing naik kemata.”

        The way Zahid is going about doing it will only increase the numbers of those hopping over to the DAP’s side.

        You yourself were the one who brought up the comparison between the Jews and the Arab Muslims, and how the Jews are immensely capable and licik in shaping public perception, and how the Arabs – although they may have right on their side – come across as irrational. You also pointed out that the Jews have been winning the propaganda war over the Arabs. (Ditto DAP.)

        re: “UMNO/BN has to forget about the Chinese vote altogether since they are one who is asking for it.”

        I agree.

        re: “All UMNO/BN needs to do now is to consolidate and solidify the Malay vote in Kelantan, Terengganu, Kedah, Perak and Johor.”

        I understand why Umno would be taking this direction. Dr M warned as much the outcome when he commented on Gelang Patah. However, further upping the race (Malay) and religion (Islam) stakes comes at a cost, even for the Malays/Muslims yourselves.

        re: “The last PRK in Kuala Besut had shown an encouraging support by the Malays to UMNO over PAS. PRK Sungai Limau will be another test. For the record, Sungai Limau is PAS stronghold.”

        It’s always possible for Umno+PBB to rule between just their two parties. DAP is using the Obama method and they’re aggressively branching out to the rural constituencies as announced in their Impian Sarawak project. Plus, now the DAP has the financial wherewithal to campaign unlike pre-2008.

        The question is what kind of Malaysia do we all really want?

        The Umno-PBB sahaja version is Malay-Islam. Don’t be too offended but the truth is that a good number of the Muslim countries are not doing well (to render an understatement) — Sudan, Somalia, the sub-Saharan African countries, Libya, Syria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and we’re hosting the Bangladeshis here.

        re: “BTW, where is this entry heading to Helen?”

        The usual lah. Encouraging people to stop and think deeper.

        re: “Are you saying that now Zahid should crawl on his knees to pacify the oppositions voters and the fence sitters?”

        I was thinking that I wish Umno today had a magic machine to clone Datuk Onn Jaafar (make dozens of copies of him) so that the party would have a saf kepimpinan yang berwawasan dan berwibawa.

        1. re: “You also pointed out that the Jews have been winning the propaganda war over the Arabs. (Ditto DAP.)” / “Not me.”

          Sorry my mistake. One of the other guys.

          re: “There will be no more the like of Najib …”

          Yes, another sad and stupid missed opportunity like the earlier one when Dato’ Onn Jaafar offered the multi-racial Independence of Malaya Party (IMP).

          re: “Many of the Indonesian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi in particular have married the Malays, and their next generation will be considered as Muslim Malay. Alarming? Not to me as they will always be part of Malaysian Malay and well accepted as opposed to the Chinese due to their own doing.”

          Hannah Yeoh converted to Christianity at the age of 19 tapi boleh tutup aurat-buka tudung sesuka hati serta selalu naik turun surau dan masjid. And then she posits her children with the non-native names as the Bangsa Malaysia prototype. Lepas tu pula, she “well accepted” by the PAS Malays. Jadi apa rugi?

          1. Re. Jadi apa rugi?

            Put it this way, in her case majority will vote for Pakatan. But for the new generations Malaysian Malays. let’s just say until they “lupa daratan” their vote will be for UMNO. I know a second generation Indonesians here in Malaysia who are all professionals and they are all gung ho for UMNO (not until they go into politics LOL).

            BTW, many Singaporean Malays have migrated here and become PR due to marriage and some have become citizens.

            Helen the answer to all this from now on is one school system for all. PERIOD. It may not solve the whole problem but it will mitigate the deteriorating state of race relationship in future.

        2. Re. I’ve said before, KOMA — Kick Out MCA Already.

          Haven’t you read that Ambiga has asked MCA and MIC to get out of BN?

          1. Just like The J-Star, MCA kena bambu from both sides. Dapsters still believe that the paper is a BN mouthpiece whereas Umno supporters think that it is The Rocket in disguise.

  2. I also dont agree with you, Helen, as far as Zahid is concerned.

    Zahid simply embodies the spirit of Malays fighting back against racists of DAP, Dong Zong, etc.

    My guess is that Najib is actually “using” Zahid to make a point to the targetted groups that he’s disappointed for the lack of supports from those groups that he had worked hard to appease.

    Zahid has my fullest support.

    1. re: “Zahid simply embodies the spirit of Malays fighting back against racists of DAP, Dong Zong, etc.”

      I understand the need and desire to stand up against the “DAP SuperCyber Bullies”. I fight back too against the DAP evangelistas.

      Look at how the Tun does it, e.g. his rebuttal on the Chin Peng issue. Berkesan, kan? It’s very difficult for anyone to counter his reasoned arguments.

      Now look at the uproar that has been caused by Zahid’s gertak dan gempur, and the reaction to him across the board (there will be more quotable quotes today; yesterday’s collection was only a beginning).

      Let’s turn the microscope on one specific event. Zahid threatened to shut down any newspaper that dares to report what he said to an ‘all-Malay’ (predominantly) Umno audience. He threw out all the reporters from that taklimat. You can hear his threats by playing the YouTube embedded above in the article.

      Which law of our country supports what he threatens to do?

      To get at the newspaper(s) with seditious tendencies, isn’t it more effective – -and quite legal – to hit at their circulation and income? It is within the gomen’s control to cancel subscription of say, The J-Star, by all govt departments. Also govt agencies should not publish their ads, notices, tenders in The J-Star.

      GLCs should not advertise or provide corporate sponsorship to The J-Star but just see how the PM’s own department (Pemandu) loves to contribute to the Jerusubang paper’s ad revenue.

      All Mara hostels should unsubscribe their J-Star orders. Retaliate using calculated strategy, not brute force.

      1. Re. Look at how the Tun does it, e.g. his rebuttal on the Chin Peng issue. Berkesan, kan? It’s very difficult for anyone to counter his reasoned arguments.

        Tun M is in his own class altogether and nobody compared to him. At his current phase and standing, he has ample time to reason with logic and empathy, but given the reverse, I think that he would be just as brutal i.e Just do it and no question ask.

        Re. Now look at the uproar that has been caused by Zahid’s gertak dan gempur, and the reaction to him across the board (there will be more quotable quotes today; yesterday’s collection was only a beginning).

        Nothing really matters now Helen, it is a “Dammed if you Do, Dammed if you Don’t” situation for UMNO now. The message has be loud and clear.

        Re. He threw out all the reporters from that taklimat. You can hear his threats by playing the YouTube embedded above in the article.

        The same goes with REGIME DAP and PAKATAN. They have done that for a long time. Do you think that UMNO/BN should be any more kinder?

        I remember in one of your posting where LGE asked you not to quote or report anything during the press conference which was only meant for the oppo. and you obliged him.

        Katanya UMNO ni Jahat dan Rasis, beri bunga pun dibalas tahi. So nak buat apa lagi sekarang?

        1. re: “At his current phase and standing, he has ample time to reason with logic and empathy, but given the reverse, I think that he would be just as brutal i.e Just do it and no question ask.”

          The Dapsters accuse Tun of being a destroyer. But he built Putrajaya. How many men in the world in the 20th century can say that they have that under their belt? Just think about it. He actually built a ‘city’ from ground up which was not there before.

          re: “Nothing really matters now Helen, it is a “Dammed if you Do, Dammed if you Don’t” situation for UMNO now. The message has be loud and clear.”

          I concur with the “Dammed if you Do, Dammed if you Don’t” assessement. Kesian, particularly DS Najib. But what is the shape of the message that Umno is sending out?

          re: “The same goes with REGIME DAP and PAKATAN. They have done that for a long time. Do you think that UMNO/BN should be any more kinder?”

          Either it is 2 x 5 or one side is a wee bit better and more civilized (kinder). I’ve said before that Bintang Tiga was brutal and Bintang Lima vicious. If UMNO/BN is unable to be any more kinder, then what’s the selling proposition to persuade voters to stick with status quo instead of opting for ‘Ubah’.

          re: “I remember in one of your posting where LGE asked you not to quote or report anything during the press conference which was only meant for the oppo. and you obliged him.”

          It was LGE’s ‘informal’ chat session with the Foreign Correspondents Club, the majority of whom were orang putih. Yes, you remember correctly. I did oblige him. He was sniping at the gomen during the talk, biasa lah. However, unlike Zahid, the DAP sec-gen did not gertak me in front of all those white journalists. And there was nothing earth-shattering in what he had to say
          (and no big story to expose).

          Interestingly, the reporters at Zahid’s function all obliged him. Only Malaysiakini didn’t.

          I often wonder about the reporter’s dilemma: Take for example the taping of the Rodney King beating. Should the person holding the camera continue filming or should he put down his camera and intervene to try and help the victim?

          re: “Katanya UMNO ni Jahat dan Rasis, beri bunga pun dibalas tahi. So nak buat apa lagi sekarang?”

          So nak buat apa lagi sekarang? The expensive con-sultans are giving PM poor advice. If the Umno president’s own brother lebih rela mengiklan dengan Malaysiakini, apakan daya? Lavishing ad revenue on The J-Star is tantamount to shoring up the platform for the Sultans of Con to do their thing.

          So nak buat apa lagi sekarang? Can the PPTA (Parti Paling Tidak Apa) act using more carefully crafted tactics rather than swinging the big stick?

          1. Re. But he built Putrajaya.

            That is just one of the many, KLIA, Petronas Twin Tower, The Smart Tunnel etc. His biggest achievement is to take Malaysia out of 1997-98 crisis and policy set through the 2007-08 crisis that protect Malaysian Economy.

            Re. Kesian, particularly DS Najib

            Indeed both sides don’t understand his position. At the moment he is the bearer of all good news for Malaysia and nothing controversial except his strong stance on CP issue.

            Re. But what is the shape of the message that Umno is sending out?

            How do you reason with a whining child?

            Re. Interestingly, the reporters at Zahid’s function all obliged him. Only Malaysiakini didn’t.

            Dan mereka terus menjolok sarang tebuan. Aren’t they asking for it?

            Re. I often wonder about the reporter’s dilemma: Take for example the taping of the Rodney King beating. Should the person holding the camera continue filming or should he put down his camera and intervene to try and help the victim?

            There is a clause or law called “Good Samaritan Clause”, where one is obliged to give assistance at time of emergency, normally in medical profession, failing which one one can get sued. Have you watched “The Bang Bang Club” about a photographer who won Pulitzer prize winner for his below photo and ended up committed suicide for failing to help the child.

            This is call common sense, where very often than not people lose that in the hype of excitement and ambition.

            Freedom of speech is not without limit and the limit is “Never Yell Fire in A Crowded Theater” and sometimes Ignorance is Bliss.

    2. Setem,

      Yup.

      I see nothing wrong with Dr Zahid’s remarks. I admire Dr zahid for saying it bluntly. He is firm, not racist.

      As i said it earlier, even if Dr Zahid is 2300 times better than he is now, he will not get the support from the chinese. Let us be frank here. Dr Zahid is from UMNO. And to the chinese, UMNO has already committed the cardinal sin for simple fact that it overlords BN. To them a good Malay party must be “melukut ditepi gantaNG” liker PAS.

      Why so upset with Dr Zahid’s remark say on one Malaysiakini reporter. Nobody sayid anything on how rude Anwar is or how racist Kit Siang is. Utusan is banned from Penang state media press. Surprisingly nobody says anything about this stance will make DAP looks bad from Malay viewpoint.

      Why waste time pleasing or “jaga hati” NGOs . Have they (NGOs) voted BN before Dr Zahid become Home minister? No. AFTER ALL< EVEN WITHOUT THE CHINEE VOTE, UMNO still forms the government recognised by the whole world.

      The truth is UMNO is rejected outright b the chinese already. That despite Najib trying very hard to please them. The Chinese wants UMNO to "bungkus'. A Malay party that reigns supreme in political landscape is too much to stomach.

      They hate Dr zahid for Dr zahid is not willing to play safe. Just like they hate Dr Mahathir for being blunt.

      They like Malay politicians who say he is Malaysian first. For that kind of Malay politician please "bertanding" in Subang Jaya, Ipoh Barat or kepong before saying you are Malaysian first. see whether you will be voted in in these areas. if you are voted in then you have the right to proclaim you are malaysian first.

      MY POINT IS there is a limit to trying to please Chinese or useless people like Ambiga. A Home minister must be firm. If you are 'lermbik" , you will be parade as "good" . still do not be stupid to think they will vote for you.

      So, why worry,

      Now suddenly people are upset that Dr Zahid mocked the reporter from Malaysiakini. I would do the same if I am Dr zahid. Or I simply will chase them out .

      Why I must tolerate slandering from Malaysiakini. .

        re: “Now suddenly people are upset that Dr Zahid mocked the reporter from Malaysiakini.”

        He threatened to SHUT DOWN ALL/any of the newspapers who would dare print what he said.

        1. helen,

          If fact, he should not just shut down these newspapers. He must put stop to all these years of spinning these newspapers have been doing.

          As for BAR Council, have you ever heard it asked Tian Chua to be investigated for slandering UMNO on lahad Datu incident ?

          Why on earth we allow newspapers that love to spin and backstab us go unpunished?

        2. Helen,

          I, for one, do not really give a rat’s ass what that pit of snakes (aka the Bar Council) have to say. Their rushing to defend criminals who hurt and kill our public service personnel is, to me, proof that they are opposing just for the sake of being contrarian.

          As for HRW, I rate them even lower than the pit of snakes. They’re just tools of neo-colonials who hide behind lofty ideals so as to shame people around the world to adopt their ways of thinking.

  3. Careful, lah Ah Moi, this ultra-racist HM may suddenly classify you as “pendatang” and throw PCA, Sedition Act and god knows what at you, lah. After that, suruh you emigrate.

    Lucky you not Indian, if not you kena tembak under “shoot 2 kill” before being put on flight back to Chennai (one way ticket.)

    Real class act, de fella.

    1. Liverpool,

      Do not blame Dr zahid. Most of DAP politicians behave like “pendatang” themselves.

  4. Zahid is doing a good job. I’m behind him 100%. Zaid Ibrahim on the other hand, should just keep his thoughts to himself as he is irrelevant now. That is all.

    1. Urb,

      Dr Zahid has my 200% support. He is firm. I fully support him handling gangsterism . And I “love” the way he handled reporter from Malaysiakini.

      For Malay politicians, stop the irritating attitude of pleasing the Chinese. You still will not get their votes. Unless you are willing to sell Islam or Melayu.

      1. Zahid gets my full support. However the lembiks: our PM and his cousin Kerismuddin get my 0% support. The same goes to the liberals in UMNO KJ and Nazri ie 0% support.

        Looking at the current political scenarios where the majority race (Malays) and its party (UMNO) get onslaughts from all angles from DAP on daily basis, we need vocal people like Zahid to speak on our behalf. Even the Malays in the opposition (PKR & PAS) are quiet about this issue.

        On another note, the Australians are also getting fed up with the Chinese in Australia. They are ungrateful lots just like the Malaysian Chinese. They only know how to demand but refuse to assimilate with the locals. These ingrate Chinese if they are not happy, why don’t they just go somewhere else? Why should they continue living here? I really don’t understand!

  5. Hi Helen,

    I disagree with you on Zahid.

    He is destructive, you say? Then could you list for us how he could come across as firm as he did, but without his “gertak and gempur”, as you put it?

    The truth is, Zahid is behaving exactly as we Malays want to, right now. We have run out of patience, and we will not play games anymore. We will not dance to the shitty tunes played by the opposition. We are tired of having our words spun and used to make us look as the aggressors. We refuse to be shamed any further in our own land.

    If you really want to find the source of the destruction of harmony in Malaysia, take a good hard look at the DAPigs and their communist-loving ways.

    1. re: “He is destructive, you say? Then could you list for us how he could come across as firm as he did, but without his “gertak and gempur”, as you put it?”

      Did he come across as firm or as a bully? Don’t forget that he’s the No.3 face of Umno (after Najib & Muhyiddin). Umno having 3.5 million members (konon) is the face of the Malays.

      Do you want Zahid to be the representative model of the Malay? It is to our great misfortune already that Guan Eng is seen as the representative model of the Chinese.

      re: “The truth is, Zahid is behaving exactly as we Malays want to, right now.”

      Yes, it is the knee-jerk and frustrated reaction. A general does not strategize based on knee-jerk and frustration. He will not win a war that way.

      re: “We have run out of patience, and we will not play games anymore.”

      I’m also running out of patience but I remain stoic :D

      re: “We will not dance to the shitty tunes played by the opposition.”

      Sigh. Me three. But first things first, and non-violent remedy. Why is the PM’s Department paying the piper of the shitty tunes? I’m talking about the Pemandu ads in The J-Star.

      re: “We are tired of having our words spun and used to make us look as the aggressors.”

      They’ve done worse things to me. They even fitnah my name and make me look like “Helen Ang Abdullah”. That is totally irresponsible b’cos if I eat in public during the daytime in puasa month, those who are real Cina mualaf will get a bad name from the stereotyping. What kind of people are they?!! the evangelista Bintang Lima.

      re: “We refuse to be shamed any further in our own land.”

      Have a referendum and change the name of the country back to Tanah Melayu. I’m not menyindir. It’s one hellavu an effective way to shut ’em up, no? ,)

      re: “If you really want to find the source of the destruction of harmony in Malaysia, take a good hard look at the DAP*** and their communist-loving ways.”

      The Bintang Tiga has evolved into Bintang Lima. Umno must keep up with the times. Dapsters are far, far more IT and tech-savvy.

      1. Helen,

        I’ve given some thought to what you said, which is why I didn’t respond to this immediately.

        You have an opinion of how DS Zahid should have behaved. At the same time, you also know what it feels to be attacked by the Firsters. Thus it would be logical that your response to their attacks is nothing like DS Zahid’s gertak and gempur. I believe that the type of responses you’ve practiced are what you believe DS Zahid should be practicing.

        Is this correct? I’m not trying to put words in your mouth, but I’m trying to see how else DS Zahid could be.

        If I am correct on the above, how has it worked out, Helen? Has your firm yet pacifist approach led to the Firsters laying off you?

        1. re: “Is this correct? I’m not trying to put words in your mouth, but I’m trying to see how else DS Zahid could be. If I am correct on the above, how has it worked out, Helen? Has your firm yet pacifist approach led to the Firsters laying off you?”

          Just like you’ve given thought to what I say, I have to give further thought to what you say too.

          Elsewhere on this thread in my exchanges with LOL, I concurred with him that the battle for the heart and mind of the Chinese is lost and it would be more pragmatic for BN to simply write off any hope of obtaining Chinese votes. Those Chinese who did not vote oppo in GE13 will not be voting them in GE14 in any case due to the push factor (i.e. rejecting DAP, Anwar et al). To this 10 percent, the pull factor (BN promises) is immaterial.

          In this matter of the Zahid flap, I have essentially two worries. One is of Umno and Malays lurching to the right – as evidenced by his popularity – and dragging the rest of the country with them.

          Both online and off, the anti-Chinese sentiments are palpable and spiralling. Even the Chinese newspaper editors are saying so.

          It frustrates me to see the behaviour of the Dapsters — how can they be so blind? Their ringleaders the evangelistas are hellbent on driving the Chinese bus off the cliff. There will be a New Order. It’s taking shape now.

          The DAP will throw the all-or-nothing dice in GE14. Seperti durian dengan mentimun, menggolek rosak, kena golek binasa. We know which one (durian or timun) the Chinese community is. The evangelistas have brought a catastrophe on the minorities.

          My second concern is that the DAP’s Obama method (successfully collecting all the minorities and just enough Malay support) leaving BN to bank solely on Malay and Muslim votes. And my worry is like I’ve expressed above: The Zahid personality-types are the perfect fodder for them, like how they labelled TS Muhyiddin a “Malay first” as if it was a dirty thing to be.

          And that with being better players of the perception game, the DAP-oppo will be able to turn the Zahid issues to their electoral favour.

          1. re: The Zahid personality-types are the perfect fodder for them, like how they labelled TS Muhyiddin a “Malay first” as if it was a dirty thing to be.

            Actually Helen, Dr Zahid started to gain a support from the Malay youth. For so long Pemuda UMNO have no function. But his no nonsense attitude win them over.Mind you, they have been hearing how bad and lembik UMNO is. Some supported PR because they want to be new Melayu. Brave and not afraid to fight but look at UMNO under H2O and KJ.

            Now all of the suddent come someone who willing talk the talk. No the youth that I am come across is not UMNO supporter but they willing to support Dr Zahid when it come to this. And that why I read, on line the support for him was increasing day by day from the malay youth.

            Some was so fedup with what they view as chicken behaviour of UMNO leaders, they turn to PAS but as per now, they also see PAS as an older ustaz know it all and the youth only need to shut up if they want to continue to existing in PAS, they view Dr Zahid as someone they can follow amid different party.

            What Dr Zahid done was what a malay youth secretly want to be and expected the leader should have done.

            Yeah, my conclusion base on looking at facebook posting by some of my kids friends post and foward and it look like,in youth world – malay youth especially, he suddenly become a hero for them. Guess the kids too fed up with the posting that blame Malayof everythings when all the while they can see the other side was wrong too.

            It make me wonder, if it is a possible that to much blaming someone else will start to backfire back to them???? People getting tired and started to question the rational in it?

            :o sarah

  6. Orang rata rata melayu menyokong apa yang Zahid, Ali Rustam dan mereka yang senada dengan nya katakan.

    Perasaan melayu sudah lama tersinggung dengan cacian dan hinaan oleh bangsa pendatang terutama DAP terhadap agama, bangsa dan raja raja melayu.

    Sekarang apa nak jadi, jadilah. Kesabaran melayu ada hadnya.

  7. To me there is nothing wrong for Minister Zahid to be so blatantly straight forward…. UMNO need more like him.

    What so wrong in defending your party and government’s policies? Guan Eng, Karpal, PAS does it all the time. The government are not dealing with rationale oppositions… UMNO and the Malays REALLY in need of leaders like Zahid. In an extraordinary times of politic we need extraordinary person like Zahid.

    Crude and uncouth leaders of the opposition does not deserved civilised treatment! they should be handled with an iron fist! just like DAP’s sifu LKY did to any oppositions. So Zahid carry on we support you all the way.

    1. Tok,

      re: “What so wrong in defending your party and government’s policies?”

      Oh dear. Is it the government’s policy to shoot first and ask later? Then we don’t need to have ‘investigating’ officers; all we need are hit squads. Also no point to maintain the courts and the judges.

      And then there are the reporters who were threatened to refrain from reporting what he said. I suppose he can follow the Syed Hamid Albar method of detaining the reporters “for their own safety” like what happened to the Sinchew girl put under ISA for reporting on an Umno function.

      1. Re. Oh dear. Is it the government’s policy to shoot first and ask later?

        Zahid said that “If we have enough evidence…….”, he didn’t say blatantly shoot. It is a strong message that he sent to the gangsters. They have been two occasion where the police chiefs i.e Penang and Melaka, were threatened by the gangsters.

          1. Re. Keadilan paper transcribed.

            ROTL, it is like asking Mama Dapster why her two daughter are not Indian.

                1. It shouldn’t be an issue that I copypasted Keadilan’s transcription if the stenography has been accurate. That’s all I wanted to say.

          2. kalau saya sendiri memegang tanggungjawab menangani gangster yang bersenjata, apabila ada bukti yang sahih, saya akan tembak mereka dulu sebelum mereka tembak saya.

            Lagipun, hakim ada banyak kerja lain boleh buat, kalau ditahan di lokap atau penjara, kena jugak pakai duit….

            duit susah nak cari sekarang, kalau dapat pun nilai dah makin susut….harga barang dah naik!

            1. And Chines already bising where their income tax money goes. If you spend too much on lockup gangster they will shout over the roof and ask for accountability…..

              :D sarah

      2. Helen,

        You still do not understand the Malays?

        Still do not understand the subtlety of a a language? It is full of flowery. What Dr zahid means that he means business.

        Your concern is misplaced. You shuold be more concern that DAP is leading the Chinese to clash with the Malays. DAP politicians are plain “biadap”.

      3. Helen Ang said:

        “Is it the government’s policy to shoot first and ask later?”

        Yes I agree on this one Helen… if Zahid and his men have this policies at hand he should not let the reporters knew about it? buat senyap senyap. Tak payah kasi tahu orang. Zahid tersilap kot?….nak buat mesti discreet kan? apalah Zahid macam ni pun tak tahu!

  8. JStar’s center piece of the day is Jimmy Choo. June Wong’s wonder attack on Jimmy Choo.
    http://www.thestar.com.my/Opinion/Columnists/So-Aunty-So-What/

    “As for Choo, she dismisses him as a mere cobbler from Malaysia who did not contribute a single design to the brand’s success and paints him as superstitious and unsophisticated.”

    “Mellon claims after they set up shop in Knightsbridge, “Jimmy’s only concern was to have a feng shui master bless the enterprise. ”

    “She mocks him for packing up food from the plane and “everything free he could grab from the hotel” on their overseas trips.”

    Everything free he could grab… hahaha so Malaysian.

    1. But Mulan, if Jimmy Choo given her the free shoes, I bet everyday she will go to the office wearing it and inform everyone it is Jimmy Choo…..

      ;D sarah

  9. Helen,

    I agree, Zahid is a loose cannon. I do not think he is an ultra malays like most peoples think. He manipulates the anger sentiments after last GE for his own benefits.

    The majority of malays with suffer from his cunning moves to galvanised popularity. He is a slick politician but not necessarily a smart one. He shot from the hips. Immensely popular moves considering the frustration of the malays.

    I am definitely an ultra malay but I will keep my friends close and my enemies closer. I will give the malays what they should have and not necessarily what they want. What they want is not nessarily is good for the majority of malays. I will keep the Chinese closer and I will so no with a broad smiles. I will pretend listen and be genuine but I will learned in the process and benefits the malays.

    Zahid should do this as he is part of the goverment. Mahathir was accused of being racist before he become a PM and after his retirement. He was never being accused whilst serving as PM.

    WHY? I think he is an ultra malay to the bone but a very smart one. He gave many to malays but he keep the Chinese closer. Infact the Chinese gave him almost full support when he got troubles with Anwar.

    Tell Zahid, he is stupid and he is destroying the country. I am not impressed and he is misleading the malays to the point of no return. This country need a leader that have a brain capacity not a loose cannon.

    1. Astute observation that I totally agree with. Dr M even handed the premiership on a caretaker basis to MCA during the UMNO crisis if I am not mistaken.

    1. re: “once, a knife was put to my father’s neck. i’d shoot first and ask question later…”

      Are you licensed to carry firearms and have you had enough target practice in the rifle range?

        1. Aiyah, I was just being facetious and teasing the fella (commenter).

          You, I answer seriously lah.

          The MCA Tan Sri, 68 years old, was in a doctor’s clinic when the robbers barged in.

          Everyone could see that the gang had parangs in their hands and the nurses and ordinary folks in the clinic in Raub were threatened with a clear and present danger. So the Tan Sri fired his gun AFTER the robber tried to slash me a second time. His testimony can be corroborated by eyewitnesses.

          Normally, it is called acting in self-defence.

          Most relevant to your comment, the Tan Sri has a license to carry his gun!

          1. Ya la Helen, tak fella also had license maa, he also got one million in the bank what…what made you doubt him?

            Hehe, don’t la be so serious with me, kita kawan maa… I pun suka cucuk you juga kadang2…hehe

      1. Helen,

        It has become a common scenario now where the perpetrator was beaten up by the community before the police report being made. There have been a few in the last month or so. Do you remember the case whether a Malay guy was found dead with half of his body outside the window and the other inside; allegedly for attempted robbery? The father had asked for the second post Morten but to no avail and the body was kept in the mortuary for 60 days or so.

        1. re: “It has become a common scenario now where the perpetrator was beaten up by the community before the police report being made.”

          Valid point about the vigilantes. I won’t dispute.

      2. no i wasn’t, i was just a teen.

        but when death is just centimeters away, you’d do everything to save your loved one’s life. i understand zahid stance, been there and felt the tension and fear of what could happens next.

        1. My apology. I had thought you were speaking rhetorically. Didn’t realise you were referring to a real incident that happened to your father.

  10. Dear Helen,

    Zahid is doing a good job for UMNO which is finally showing some kind of spine to match the racist barbs thrown at UMNO and the Malays by the DAP,PKR and the anti UMNO NGOs since Pak Lah’s time.

    Lets be clear about this, next PRU14 more than 90% Chinese and Indians will not vote for BN. The MCA and MIC had failed in their duty as BN partners and are reduced to mere echoes of DAP and PKR.

    UMNO must consolidate its Malay vote base in preparation for PRU14 which will make or break the BN and definitely it cannot rely on useless MCA, Gerakan and MIC.

    BN’s only hope besides UMNO in the Peninsular and Sabah are the BN parties in Sarawak and Sabah. The ALLAH issue before the Appeals Court is about the Herald publication using the word ALLAH and does not affect the Malay Bible already used for decades by Christians in Sarawak and Sabah. The DAP can only make headways in large Chinese constituency as in the case of the Peninsular. DAP/PR worship of Chin Peng put paid any thoughts of them gaining a foothold in Sarawak or Sabah.

    This is no time to be sentimental or civilised, fight fire with fire and in Zahid Hamidi, UMNO has found a fighter that Malays can finally look up to. These Malays are after all UMNO’s saviour in PRU14.

  11. orang melayu perlu bercakap apa yang mereka ingin cakap walaupun tidak disukai oleh kaum lain kerana terlalu banyak kaum lain telah bercakap apa yang orang melayu tak suka.

    1. Saya setuju. Cara melayan orang macam cina-cina DAP ni macam dulu dah tamat tempoh. Sekarang generasi baru pula akan ambil alih. Takde bagi muka dah.

  12. The Cina just angry when the Malay can sound them. For them it should have been the other way around! They cannot tahan to see Zahid so lansi like that!

    Ask annie, I’m sure she had a lot to share…

        1. Only after annie had laid it on the table for all to see, then only the Dapsters realised that what they have been saying was utter rubbish and moronic!

          Thus they try and get at her by calling her names… pity them.. Pandai annie reverse pscychology!

  13. Lihatlah nanti berapa banyak undi Zahid dapat dalam Pemilihan UMNO. Jumlah undi itu akan mencerminkan penerimaan orang UMNO dan orang Melayu diluar UMNO kepadanya. kalau dia mendapat undi terbanyak maknanya penyokongnya bukan hanya orang rightist umno sahaja tetapi menyeluruh.

    ia seharusnya dibaca sebagai itulah yang dikehendaki oleh orang UMNO. Orang Melayu diluar UMNO pun mungkin tertarik dan menyokong Zahid. Demikian pula sebaliknya.

    maka MCA sewajarnya meyedari yang ia masih mempunyai wakil di parlimen hanya atas ihsan UMNO bukan pula sebaliknya.

    Mengenai kalimah Allah, ia tidak pernah menjadi isu di Sabah dan Sarawak sebelum DAP mencucuh api dan mencurahkan minyak petrol ke atasnya..

    1. re: “kalau dia mendapat undi terbanyak maknanya penyokongnya bukan hanya orang rightist umno sahaja tetapi menyeluruh.”

      Akan bermakna seluruh parti Umno bergerak ke kanan.

      Dua tangan bertepuk: Dapster-Dapster masih tak sedar bahawa provokasi mereka sememangnya mendorong orang Melayu Umno ke arah itu.

      Mereka (evangelista) masih terus-menerus menyondol tanpa mahu mengendahkan nasihat untuk berhenti daripada membuat demikian.

      Angkara Evangelista Bintang Tiga, seluruh masyarakat Cina menerima padahnya.

      1. ‘Akan bermakna seluruh parti Umno bergerak ke kanan’

        Helen, Akhramsyah kata UMNO mana ada kanan atau tengah atau kiri, you pun dah cakap macam KJ, yang nak bawa Pemuda UMNO ke tengah, konon, UMNO perjuangan bangsa agama dan tanah air harus jelas, mana ada kanan, tengah dan kiri?

        You tak tengok interview Akhramsyah kat mobitv kut…

      2. Bukan saja orang Melayu Umno. Helen, kamu perlu juga tanya, berapa ramai orang Melayu yang berada di luar Umno yang senyap-senyap sokong Zahid.

        Mereka yang syiok sendiri masih lagi tak sedar individu-individu seperti Zahid memang di nanti-nanti oleh orang Melayu tak kira di dalam atau di luar Umno.

        Sudah lewat dah. Tiada guna lagi beri nasihat kepada orang Cina yang menyokong DAP dengan begitu gila sekali. Kini kita hanya tunggu PRU14 saja.

        PKR dan Pas apa macam ? Saya kenal orang PKR dan Pas. Mereka sendiri kata, alangkah baiknya kalau ada orang PKR dan Pas yang berani seperti Zahid.

        Jadi apa macam ? Seperti yang saya kata tadi, sudah terlewat. Awal-awal lagi sepatutnya orang Cina dengar nasihat orang BN. Harus saya jelaskan, tak salah kalau orang Cina tak undi BN. Tak salah kalau orang Cina tak sokong BN. Tak apa. Tapi kalau orang CIna dengan secara sengaja provoke orang Melayu, dah jadi lain cerita. Ini masalah serius.

        Tak perlu beri nasihat lagi.

        1. re: “Bukan saja orang Melayu Umno. Helen, kamu perlu juga tanya, berapa ramai orang Melayu yang berada di luar Umno yang senyap-senyap sokong Zahid.”

          :(

          Tak salah juga ada orang Cina yang masih lagi mahu menyokong BN (kerana menolak Pakatan). Akan tetapi pengikut-pengikut pembangkang yang taksub giler akan menyerang membabi buta barang sesiapa yang enggan mengakuri pemimpin idola mereka semestinya maksum.

          1. Helen kau sepatutnya gembira sebab ‘pengikut-pengikut pembangkang yang taksub giler akan menyerang membabi buta barang sesiapa yang enggan mengakuri pemimpin idola mereka semestinya maksum.’ akan takut nak buat macam dulu. Sama macam diaorang kutuk kau macam2.

            Apasala yang kau sedih sangat leh?!

              1. Saya islamist wor, itu liberal kalau sama macam KJ wa tak bleh, kalau sama macam Anwar juga wa tak bley…

                Tapi Helen, Islam itu memang sudah liberal and reformist wor, kalau kau tak percaya, apa kata kau cuba baca Al Quran… serious, baca tafsir English pun ok

      3. Helen,

        Precisely. But there is a way out of this. It is easy. chinese simply do not have to pawn their interests for the sake of useless Lim Dynasty.

        If they are so willing to be used by Lim dynasty “to wage war”: against Malays, then be ready for reprisal

        1. Nobody is waging war on the Malays, especially the Chinese.

          What we have is a group of race and religious extremists who are angry that many Indians, many Chinese, and a lot of Malays do not support them. In total, around 51%.

          The move to the right will only cause more voters from the other communities to become Opposition friendly. MCA, Gerakan, PPP and MIC will be most affected, but UMNO and the other component parties will be hurt in the long term. And there will be more Malays too who will be put-off by UMNO’s extreme turn. Many Malays I know are not pleased by the people trying to bring UMNO away from the centre and not concentrating on fixing the economy. And these are working class people, not those who you claim hang out at Starbucks, Bangsar Village, or Pavilion mall.

          1. I presume the ‘many Malays you know’ are liberal Malays just like Zaid Ibrahim. There are not many liberal Malays out there as most of us have become hardcore Malay racists. And thanks to you DAPster for converting us into Malay/Islam first and Malaysian second.

          2. AC-DC,

            Instead, many Malays are simply put off seeing Najib’s silence when UMNO Is attacked, insulted by racist DAP. Dr Zahid is like a bit of fresh air in UMNO.

            Whatever you said, it is only the right of UMNO members to bring where they UMNO to go. They(UMNO members) have learnt that no matter what UMNO does, it will never again receive support from chinese. i hope Najib learns that too. or he may be forced to vacate his UMNO presidency.

            Just as you claim many m,alays are put off with people trying to bring UMNO from the centre( I feel it is the opposite), you may also want to know that Malays too are put off with PAS “submitting” to DAP and DAP’s racist attitude.

  14. Ms H. In corporate management, there is such a thing as a good guy/bad guy act. I really cannot see any person holding the post of Minister of Interior of any country is a ‘nice’ and popular person. Maybe only Santa Claus.

    This particular Ministry is the one that locks people up in jails and in the direct line of the balance of ORDER/DISORDER. No matter what people say about the style of the Honourable Minister Dato Seri Dr ZAHID, there is no doubt he has got the onerous responsibility of keeping crime down without the ISA and OE. I support him.

    1. re: “he has got the onerous responsibility of keeping crime down without the ISA and OE”

      The opposition, a quarter of their MPs whom failed to turn up at the Dewan Rakyat to vote on the bill, had claimed that the ISA and EO have been returned in the form of the PCA which Zahid calls “my [his] law”.

      1. ‘The opposition, a quarter of their MPs whom failed to turn up at the Dewan Rakyat to vote on the bill..’

        So they want to tutup pekung la tu, so that Malaysians, especially DAP loving PR supporters will not be angry at them because of the very reason you put up!

      2. Ms H. If I am not mistaken, because everything was done in such a hurry, that the ISA and EO were repealed at the behest of the Opposition and pressure groups. And the result showed the whole fracas was a grevious mistake. That our beloved Malaysia is Monaco. ( I was told even there they had cops all round )

      3. Or is it possible they secretly support the PCA and know that in order for the bill to success was failling to vote in it. Rather then clearly support it, why not just absent during the vote. You can say anything after that but the bill can go on right. Your position safe, whatever you want you get….hmmmm

        :D sarah

  15. Hi Helen,

    In this kind of time we might need someone like Zahid. Frankly, for all the while, the Malay dislike people who acted like Zahid. But today, the thumping and the arrogance of LGE and his bunch of DAPster is beyond tolerance that we need someone to put a slap on their face.

    Look at the recent CEC case where they unrepentantly call ROS as UMNO’s running dog while anyone even with a pea brain would know that UMNO has nothing to do with the DAP fiasco. This is not coming out from Red Bean, but by some top brass in DAP. The arrogance of DAP has gone overboard that they think anything blamed on UMNO will be swallowed without any repercussion. It is just like if you are UMNO, we are free to accuse you of anything.

    Many people (Malay) may not like UMNO, but trying insulting our intelligence stupidity and hypocrisy is just too much to be handled.

    1. Thanks. Pls lemme put up your comment together with Ellese’s later in the day. I acknowledge that there are alternative views to mine that should be heard too in this blog.

  16. You guys should take a note that PAS and PKR top leaders (the Malays) are pretty silent about Zahid.

    It’s an open secret that Anwar has always a soft spot for Zahid. Zahid was among the very few UMNO fellas who did not immediately abandon Anwar when Anwar was kicked out of UMNO.

    1. I don’t think deep down Anwar really had any genuine feeling towards the Chinese, he did not care to do anything for the SJKC while he was the Menteri Pendidikan.

      He is as much using the Cinas in DAP just as much as LKS and Karpal had used him for their own Cina kalahkan Melayu agenda!

      Soft spot for Zahid, maybe…

  17. helen saya sokong zahid. di negara majoriti ni minoriti kena sedar di mana bumi dipijak disitu langit di junjung. kita memerlukan lebih ramai lagi pemimpin UMNO macam zahid. saya sokong zahid hamidi jadi PM malaysia. asalkan bukan bang non dan kuncu-kuncunya.

    kami orang melayu perlukan pm yang lebih melayu dari melayu dan menegakkan apa saja demi melayu. jika orang yang minoriti tidak suka bacalah berita di AUstralia. Bekas PM australia kata kalau tak suka apa saja mengenai Australia.. anda boleh keluar dari Australia. tanah ini, bumi ini adalah milik pribumi dan orang Australia saja.

    imigran yang datang ke australia kena cakap bahsa australia, sekolah australia, makan dan hidup dengan australia dan ikut undang undang australia. kalau tak suka sila cari negara lain yang sesuai denagn mereka.

    1. Salam,

      Isu di sini bukan minoriti vs majoriti. Pada pendapat saya, tidak sepatutnya ada pihak di Malaysia yang mengangap dirinya majoriti dengan itu pihak minority terpaksa tunduk seperti hamba kepada pihak majoriti. Isu disini ialah sifat hormat dan toleransi antara kaum.

      Masalah dengan Dapster ini ialah mereka ini tak ada sikap toleransi dan menghormati kaum lain. Mereka sentiasa mengangap kehendak mereka adalah kehendak kaum lain, apa yang betul bagi mereka adalah betul bagi orang lain. Lebih malang ialah mereka menjadikan UMNO sebagai Bogeyman untuk menghentam orang Melayu dan menjadikan segala institusi yang ditunjangi orang Melayu (khususnya institusi kerajaan) sebagai sasaran serangan dan segalanya dilakukan tanpa ada pihak yang berani secara tegas untuk melawan pembohongan dan permainan licik mereka.

      Bukan orang Melayu aje yang marah, orang bukan Melayu yang boleh lihat hipikrisi puak-puak ini pun rasa marah. Itulah sebabnya kita lihat banyak komen-komen di blog ini yang saya rasa datang dari orang bukan Melayu sendiri kerana dikalangan mereka pun ada ramai yang masih ada self-esteem dan tidak bersifat hipokrit

  18. I am sorry Helen- I got to disagree with you on this.

    I am a firm believer in Newton’s Law in politics too – that every action has an equal reaction.

    So when the Chinese overwhelmingly rejected BN/UMNO in GE13, they did not consider the fact that there will be consequences. Najib been the most pro-non bumi PM after TAR and he showered much policy gifts on the Chinese and done much for the Indians. He rolled back many restrictions on the non bumis and liberalized the economy. He also done much to democratize the country by repealing many out-dated laws.

    What did he get in return ? Nothing, nada from the Chinese. By rejecting him, they rejected all his policy changes and overtures – basically they spit on his face and told him to go to hell. Burning his photos and putting his pic on altar of the death are some of the examples the Chinese expressed their “gratitude”.

    So what do you expect Najib to do? Go down on his knees and beg for forgiveness and votes? While ignoring and punishing those who voted for him (Malays and poor Indians)?

    On top of this we have non Malays (especially Christians) becoming so vocal in condemning and even insulting the Malays and Muslims (especially the evangelistas of DAP). Malays are by nature patience and polite but many in private are seething in anger at all these insults and threats. To many Malays, UMNO and the royalty are the embodiment of the Malay spirit and identity. But attacking these two instituitions and calling UMNO as dogs and racists on daily basis is only hardening the Malay stance and eroding their patience.

    I agree with Ellese that people like Zahid not because is an ultra Malay but because he’s someone who stands up to the bullying ways of Dapsters and not afraid to put them in their place. Malays are tired of the insults thrown at them. The dapsters have gone to the extent where the word Malay is means “racist”. In the utopian world of Bangsar Malaysia, being a Malay is a crime and a shame.

    I don’t agree with his shoot first policy but I fully support him on his anti crime drive – finally the police are on the winning side. I am not sure what exactly he meant with his latest statement – I would believe the spins of Mkini 100%. But I did read that he did not refer to “3 line” to the gang but Perkida a social organization.

    So in essense, Zahid represents the Malay self respect (maruah) just like Hannah embodies the Christian extremism and Guan Eng the Chinese “kurang ajar-ism” and biawak-ism.

        1. ‘I am a firm believer in Newton’s Law in politics too – that every action has an equal reaction.’

          Could not agree more with you CS!

          The Cina DAP should think that if the Malays were to be as unequivocal as they are right now, being the majority then what will happen?

          Especially now it is clear that all Cina DAP wants is to install a Cina government in Malaysia. What would the rest of the Malays, UMNOs or otherwise think now?

          The grassroots will definitely shy away from PR. It is interesting to see how the urban Malay would take the Cina governments remark?

          And how would the rest of the Malays leaders in PKR and DAP spin the statement made by Tony-Melayu-Anjing-Pua, to convince their constituents?

          1. I think we have seen as some of us have predicted before the GE, DAP has become the defacto leader of PR. Anwar is just the leader in the name and the show belongs to LGE & LKS.

            I have some Malay friends who voted for PR in GE13 due to their anger on issues such as corruption and abuse of power are already regretting seeing the way DAP is behaving. To them DAP do not show the basis respect anyone – including the rulers and the position of Islam. They are challenging everything, taking everything while giving nothing. My friends are liberal and educated urban Malays who were willing to accept the Chinese leaders but seeing the DAP (and MCA & Gerakan) behaviour they are now regretting.

            1. Your friends was not alone Calvin. I have a friend who a hardcore supporter of PR and now doing a 360 deg to support anything that fight for the malay right. He is no perkasa but after seeing what DAP have done after GE13, he started to becoming one and sometimes I as a malay afraid becouse if liberal as he is can change like that, how about a not so liberal?

              :o sarah

  19. Saya juga enggan bersetuju dengan pandangan Helen mengenai zahid.. Masa untuk bertoleransi sudah lama berakhir.

    Pandangan puan mengenai tindakan Zahid yang hanya akan menyebabkan UMNO hanya disokong oleh mereka yang mengundi BN pada pilihanraya lepas ada benarnya.. namun pada saya tindakan zahid ini lebih banyak munafaat dari mudaratnya..

    langkah terbaik adalah memastikan melayu yg mengundi UMNO tetap akan mengundi UMNO pada pilihanraya mendatang dan melayu yang mengundi PR di harapkan akan mengalih kepercayaan kepada UMNO setelah melihat pencercaan berterusan DAP kepada melayu..

    Tindakan Zahid ini juga akan menghalang penghijrahan sebahagian orang melayu kepada ISMA.. Melayu yang marah dengan menteri amaran dan sepupunya serta adik sepupunya akan berhijrah ke ISMA yang saya lihat lebih radikal seumpama Talliban namun semakin mendapat tempat dihati saya..

  20. Hoooiiii Panjangnya Helen Ang Pencinta UltraMelayu Kena Bantai.

    How can the Darling of the Malay Extremists be treated this way?

    And all because she doesn’t approve of their Idol’s emotionally unstable Tirades?

      1. Joe berfahaman dengan kita tidak bersetuju dengan helen bermaksud kita bantai helen.. inilah mentaliti pembangkang..

  21. Zahid is the ‘face’ of many of your ultra Malay commentators. It is a futile exercise trying to convince them that Zahid is wrong. See how their sentences are very similar “Kill them!” “Shoot them!” or “Close them!”

    It is interesting to note that Zahid befriended the no 7 guys. I know a few of them. I know many of them are active in UMNO. But if VP is expressing support for them openly, it must be their men in UMNO are really2 influential.

    I know these gangsters are ultra Malays. I heard their talk about Malay and Islam being threatened. And that very night they are drunk in night clubs surrounded by GROs. And in the next day they continue their illegal gambling activities as usual, sadly with quite a number of their customers are Malay school students or Malays who are not educated and having a small paying job and looking for quick money. What love of Malays are these ultra talking about?

    And the day after next, they were extorting money from some businesses. Talk about Islam in one day, extort money the next day. Now you know why I puke at these ultras? Just like Hasan Ali. He is not gangster. But go and raid a church. One of the suspect which was called confess that they receive assistance from church because nobody else is helping. Then bloggers start questioning where zakat money went to. Then the same exco, who is overseeing zakat money too, the same ultra, the one and only Hasan Ali keep mum. No words. Nothing on the zakat.

    If anyone ask me, I say all these ultra Malays are just a bunch of hypocrites. The leaders wanting fame and not doing the correct thing to rectify anything. The small fish follows blindly. Pejuang Melayu dan Islam konon. Offer duit rasuah, berebut2 ambik.

    Looks like Indian got to find other profession. They do not have any special provision for economic share. So they resort to crime. But now crime is to be monopolized by ultra Malays. Maybe Zahid friends think since Malays are majority, they should have 60% of the crime cake. haha. What a funny country we are living in.

    1. True.

      Zahid is incompetent. He makes all this noise to cover up this lacklustre performance in government, and as you can see here in this blog, the sheep lap it up. He will certainly be no better than the previous UMNO vice presidents, and will further bring it to ruin.

      See what has become of the Republican party in the United States.

      Everybody on board the ship of fools, the ‘SS Zahid’.

      1. Just listen to what you guys are saying…

        Zahid is already an SS for saying those words and ChinPeng was a national hero should be awarded Tun for killing 10K Malayans?

        Seriously?

    2. Nizam,

      All the remarks like ultra melayu, bloody racist and now gangster! is a trademark of DAPSTER ..pity of you if just swallow whatever spoon feed by them..

  22. “It is interesting to note that Zahid befriended the no 7 guys. I know a few of them. I know many of them are active in UMNO.”

    It is interesting to note that I could also claim that I am, in fact, a mole in LGE’s camp. I could easily claim that every night, LGE would roam the back alleys of Penang to physically abuse vagrants and the mentally deficient. Of course this would not be true, and I certainly would not have the proof to support my outrageous claim – and I certainly am not making that claim – but then again, neither do I see any proof from you.

    If you really have proof, then please, give us names and specifics, and I will gladly apologize for implying that you are talking out of your ass.

  23. “The question is what kind of Malaysia do we all really want?

    The Umno-PBB sahaja version is Malay-Islam. Don’t be too offended but the truth is that a good number of the Muslim countries are not doing well (to render an understatement) — Sudan, Somalia, the sub-Saharan African countries, Libya, Syria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and we’re hosting the Bangladeshis here.

    re: “BTW, where is this entry heading to Helen?”

    The usual lah. Encouraging people to stop and think deeper.

    re: “Are you saying that now Zahid should crawl on his knees to pacify the oppositions voters and the fence sitters?”

    I was thinking that I wish Umno today had a magic machine to clone Datuk Onn Jaafar (make dozens of copies of him) so that the party would have a saf kepimpinan yang berwawasan dan berwibawa.”

    You are actually speaking sense for a change.

    Keep it up.

  24. To get support from the conservative crowd, make lots of noise and hot air. They will lap it up like sheep and support you.

    Lost over 40 firearms? Never mind? Just say you support the chief’s statement that the guns might have fallen into the sea.

    Tough on gangsterism? Just say you will clamp down on mob activity and shoot them if you have proof. Later, show your support to another group of gangsters.

    1. Well, sell all the public land in Penang at rock bottom price to cronies and when cornered say you want to build rumah murah. Cheat blatantly in party polls and when questioned, accuse the ROS as running dogs….
