‘I’ll never walk with you, Ambiga tells Isma chief‘ (Malaysiakini, 20 June 2013)
Former Bar Council president Ambiga Sreenevasan said:
“I will not walk with him because our paths are fundamentally different.
Ambiga will not walk with Isma president Abdullah Zaik Abdul Rahman because their paths are fundamentally different.
She walks with Anwar Ibrahim because their paths are fundamentally the same.

Ambiga claims herself a champion of “the marginalised and downtrodden”
Ambiga Sreenevasan said:
[Abdullah Zaik] believes in fighting for one race and one religion against enemies who are not there. I believe in fighting for all Malaysians who are marginalised and downtrodden.“
[Dapsters clap and cheer on cue at her self-aggrandizing words.]
Perasan sungguh pompuan ni! Masuk bakul, lepas tu angkat sendiri.
But really? Does anyone recall the last time Ambiga fought for marginalised and downtrodden Indians? Has she ever?
P. Uthayakumar doesn’t remember that Ambiga fought for him and his fellow Hindrafians when they were detained under ISA on sedition charges. In fact, this neglect by Ambiga is one of Uthaya’s pet grouses.
Hindraf and MIC say Ambiga is a “mandore”
Indeed Uthaya has complained several times that Ambiga expressed the Bar Council’s grave concern when Teresa Kok, Raja Petra Kamarudin and the Sin Chew reporter – all three whom are non-lawyers – were briefly detained under ISA but terlepas pandang the Hindraf detainees.
When it came to four Indian lawyers who were all members of the Bar, the council under Ambiga was utterly indifferent to their plight.
They were detained under ISA for 1½ years but then again, associated with poor Hindraf and not the fashionable Firsters. In fact, Uthaya was so pissed off that he called Ambiga a “mandore” of Pakatan.
In this, Uthaya and Hindraf rival the MIC are in total agreement. Penang MIC Youth has similarly accused “Ambiga is Pakatan’s Indian mandore” (FMT, 27 June 2011).
When Anwar Ibrahim casually mentioned that he will “tell Ambiga to call off the Bersih rally if …” (see above), it does certainly give the impression that she took instructions from him — Malaysiakini 19 June 2011 story via Yahoo! News.

“Isma divides Malaysians”
The way the following accusation – “you’re causing division among the various races, you b-a-a-a-d” – is framed is so very typical of DAP rhetoric.
And here is Ambiga saying it:
“[Abdullah Zaik] reads our federal constitution and sees how we can be divided. I read our federal constitution and see our shared values and how we are united.”
“He thinks it is fine to call fellow citizens ‘trespassers’ and other such ‘choice’ words, I call them my brothers and sisters.”
[Wow! Ambiga said the “brothers and sisters” Dapster favourite phrase. Clap, clap, cheer cheer.]

Ambiga: Making this nation great
Ambiga alleged that Abdullah Zaik had no qualms in rewriting the history of this country and questioning the contributions of his fellow citizens.
Ambiga described her vision in comparison to his:
“I believe in celebrating our rich and diverse history and being proud of it. I value every bit of the blood, sweat and tears of all those who have made this nation great.
“His vision is to see one community as being above all others; my vision is to see all communities work together to continue to build Malaysia.”
[Dapsters clap and cheer because they’re just lapping it up.]
But if I may ask …
Does Ambiga believe in celebrating too the history of the Displaced Estate Workers whose blood, sweat and tears in the rubber plantation industry made our country the world’s biggest exporter of the commodity at one time?
If so, does anyone recall if Ambiga ever spoke up for the DEWs when they lost their rubber tapper jobs and were evicted from their estate quarters due to the fragmentation of the big plantations?

“We are all creations of the Almighty”
Urm, who has Ambiga spoken up for besides the opposition fellas and the Pakatan Ubah cause?
Ambiga said of herself in contrast to Abdullah Zaik:
“He sees the worst in some of his fellow human beings, I see the best in all because we are all creations of the Almighty.”
Yeah, yeah, “we’re all one race, the human race”.
Or as Sisters in Islam puts it: “We’re all Allah’s children”.
Quite the standard pick-up lines when that kind of people are inviting you for a drink of holy water.
[Dapsters clap and cheer because “we are all creations of the Almighty”, Love-Love-Love are the ‘sedapkan telinga’ words they love to hear.]
“Different destinations”? Fine, go your way
Ambiga explains why she shies away from walking with Abdullah Zaik:
“I will not walk with him because his path will never meet my path. He and I do not share the same vision or destination.
“He speaks of racial and religious superiority, I believe in a multiracial community and multi-religious harmony.”
[Dapsters are thrilled to bits at the picture perfect “no Malays, no Indians too and zero Chinese, we’re all Malaysians” Charlie’s Angels line-up above.]

“Malaysians who want to see peace and harmony”
And to bring her chest-thumping performance to its soaring finale, Ambiga concludes her grandstanding against Abdullah Zaik by issuing (such a navel-gazing Firster) invitation:
“Should he ever choose to work with us, laugh with us, cry with us and to help all, he is welcome to walk with me and the millions of Malaysians who want to see peace, harmony and happiness reign in this beloved nation of ours.”
[And right on cue, Dapsters clap and cheer wildly to bring the house down because as we all know, they are delusionally, hysterically syok sendiri.]
Actually folks, if you must know, Abdullah Zaik really thinks that Ambiga is a “talam dua muka”.
And you know what, he is 101 percent right.
