Khairy Jamaluddin akan menang pemilihan Pemuda Umno hari ini. Tahniah diucapkan kepada DAP dan Pakatan.
On 5 Oct 2006, the DAP’s grand old man Lim Kit Siang said: “If the Prime Minister does not exercise check and discipline of his son-in-law, Khairy will be the cause of the downfall of the Abdullah premiership“.
Kit Siang had warned that Khairy would be the cause of his father-in-law’s downfall. And Kit Siang was damn right.
I shall now predict that KJ will be the cause of the end of Umno rule. Remember, you heard it here.
And the winner is … DAP
In 2004, KJ “won” the deputy Umno Youth post uncontested. Where got any meritocracy? Nepotism got lah. One nail in Umno’s coffin.
In 2009, KJ won the Umno Youth chief post despite that his party disciplinary board found him guilty of money politics. However, he was let off only with a stern warning and still allowed to contest. That was a clear-cut case of cronyism and corruption. Second nail in Umno’s coffin.
In 2013, KJ retains his Umno Youth chiefdom. Another nail in Umno’s coffin.
We Chinese are uncorking the champagne bottle today. Yamseng!
KJ makes mutants out of the 650,000 Pemuda members
According to the Bintang Lima publication, ‘Khairy aims to make Umno Youth more centrist’ (15 Sept 2013).
“I am trying to change the DNA of Umno Youth from being mostly right-wing and Malay-centric to a more centrist wing that focuses on issues and their solutions,” Khairy was quoted as saying in his interview with The J-Star reporters.
So… in Khairy’s assessment, the Umno Youth are mostly right wing. They are also Malay-centric as epitomized by his primary challenger Akhramsyah Sanusi whose campaign motto is “Hidup Melayu”.
But KJ plans to change the DNA of Umno Youth into Firsters. This is something for the “Middle Malaysia” (DAP’s slogan) Dapsters to celebrate.
The dictionary defines the adjective ‘bipolar’ as meaning “having or relating to two poles or extremities”.
Umno Youth, according to Khairy himself, is too far right. Never miod that KJ was standing there right next to Hisham on stage during the keris-kissing act.
On the other hand, the opposition regard Khairy as their type — someone who flies liberal colours.
Now how do you reconcile both perceptions? A split personality?
Iguana Eng species
Do you know why DAP – I’m referring to the party version 3.0 and their evangelistas – are KJ fanboys?
Because he’s one of them — a chameleon.
His press secretary Regina Lee is a notable Dapster. Yet currently she can go around telling everybody how wonderful the Umno youth (‘youth’ no caps, yah) is. That’s apparently her job brief.
I’ve been reliably informed that the Malay editorial staff in her ex-newspaper the Menara Star office just cannot tahan her. They dislike her with much the same intensity that some Umno people dislike Khairy.
Oh well, never mind. As long as the boss likes cukup, lah.
In September 2011 when Regina Lee hopped over to The J-Star from Malaysiakini, MCA vice president Gan Ping Sieu (see his tweet to Regina below) was the Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports.
Licik lawan PPTA — siapa di atas?
Barely two years down the road, Regina has left the Bintang Lima evangelista battlestarhip for the Minister of Youth and Sports.
Recall how Lim Kit Siang had foreseen that the Son-in-Law would be the cause of the downfall of the Abdullah premiership.
Tun Dol’s administration collapse came from the cancer eating away within Umno. The tumour cells were the Fourth Floor Boys.
Musuh dalam selimut
Sun Tzu’s art of war tells us that the most effective way to weaken the enemy is from the inside.
Don’t forget, we smart Chinese have got the wisdom of a 5,000-year civilization behind us.
Heh, heh, heh.
That’s why the Dapsters have no qualms in slapping the insulting nickname “Dumno” on Umno. They also name-call Umno as “Bumno” because the industrious Chinese figure that it is the Parti Paling Tidak Apa (PPTA).
“See ya there, suckers”
Let’s go see the hammering of the most pivotal nail in Umno’s coffin, shall we?
Note that Regina Lee has changed her Twitter profile avatar (above) to the badge bearing KJ’s legend “Ikon Anak Muda”.
Regina Lee tweeted that she “will be in PWTC later” and to “jumpa di sana”.
Yup, It’s an “exciting day” for KJ’s Special Officer.
She “woke up early” and will be going to the PPTA headquarters shortly to savour the moment spelling the beginning of the end of Umno.
