As I have illustrated in my previous postings ‘MH370: Condolences, but …‘ and ‘Rosmah, Guan Eng and the flight disappearance‘, the fate of the missing MAS airplane cannot avoid being politicized because that is the key plank to how the opposition operate.
As a further example of the politicization, the DAP’s tudung-wearing evangelista Yang Berhormat tweeted: “Whole world searching for airlines, Najib searches for chickens. Fantastic” (see below).
(Ref. ‘DAP Teo Nie Ching’s sarcastic tweet on MH370 unbecoming of Member of Parliament’ rebuke by the MCA publicity bureau.)
Where is PM Najib? is yet another a piece of condemnation (by one Soraya Salim), and published in The Malaysian Insider, that also bambu the PM kaw-kaw. While the author is not a prominent name in the writing fraternity, her article nonetheless has been widely Facebooked due to the prominence given it by TMI.
These are only the tip of the iceberg. There is nothing that the PM or his wife can do that will not be politicized (see also ‘Manipulasi setiap aktiviti Rosmah Mansor‘ in Yuseri Yusoff’s blog).
Every conceivable situation – even one involving 239 human lives like MH370 – will be politicized or milked by oh “my heart is so troubled” opposition Event Staging Managers.
The whole set-up – e.g. TMI providing the platform, the J-Star doing its subversive sabotage every now and then, the manufactured public outrage on cue against Umno luminaries – is one big Pakatan juggernaut on the roll. Mission: To destroy the reputation and erode the moral authority and legitimacy of the BN and that of Umno leaders.
Meanwhile the PM lurches from one kangkung episode to another. Doubtless the chicken (whole bird) sold at RM1 to the PM is nothing more than a publicity stunt. But it is one that has clearly backfired given how open the photo ops is to ridicule.
Najib’s market walkabout also demonstrated – not that everyone didn’t already know – how divorced the PM is from the daily grind of life, urm, you know, chores like buying groceries. I’m even sceptical as to whether Najib keeps one-ringgit notes in his wallet or if he has ever handled the (relatively) new shillings / sen.
May I ask if Najib’s consultants and advisors are secretly in cahoots with the opposition, and these events which they have planned for him are actually a plot to deliberately diminish his stature?
How can even the most hardcore BN voters shore up the Prime Minister if it is Najib himself who keeps on providing the ammo to his opponents?
