Tun “menarik balik sokongan” beliau bagi Najib
Tun today penned an historical document under a one-word title – ‘Menegur‘ – in Che Det.
I’m glad that he did. At last, the redoubtable Dr Mahathir Mohamad is grabbing the bull by the horns. Way to go, sir!
The Big Con
Recounting the King Canute anecdote, Dr Mahathir wrote: “Demikianlah sikap dato-dato kerana ingin menyenangkan hati raja mereka.”
Najib is drowning in a sea of con-sultants. They cook up stunts to senangkan hati PM such as the scenes below.
TalentCorp’s holiday around the world at taxpayers’ expense
Dr M wrote: “Sayangkan pemimpin tegur-tegurkan”.
As Tun probably himself might have experienced, Najib has a great wall of con-sultants surrounding him and thus rendering the PM detached from the masses.
Among these con-sultants are Najib’s Pemandu and Najib’s TalentCorp fellas. They are figuratively eating caviar in posh hotels around the world while the rakyat marhaen are given BR1M and told to eat cake (this is my comment, not Dr M’s).
BELOW: TalentCorp held their function at the Marriott in Melbourne …
… and the Hilton in Adelaide, Oberai in Dubai, etc etc, you get the picture
Hindraf tolong saman, jangan tak saman
I’m not sure what’s the most accurate reading to invest in the following sentence by the Tun about Najib’s premiership:
“Saya tidak ada pilihan selain dari menarik balik sokongan saya. Ini pun tidak berkesan. Oleh itu terpaksalah saya menegur.”
My 2 sen about Tun’s complaint with regard to “ini pun tidak berkesan”.
That’s why I was hoping that Hindraf would take Najib to court – read ‘Way past time for Hindraf to sue Najib Razak‘ (9 July 2014).
What is wrong with Najib?
“Apakah dianya yang saya fikir salah. Ia bermula dengan pendirian melayani semua tuntutan musuh. ISA dan undang-undang buang daerah dimansuh. Tindakan ini tidak sedikit pun mengurangkan tentangan oleh parti lawan.”
In my humble opinion, Tun is spot on in his observations about Najib’s “pendirian melayani semua tuntutan musuh”.
Nothing that Najib can ever do (however much he gives in) is able to appease his opponents. The ABU-ers only want his head and for Umno to be buried 6 feet underground. They will not be satisfied with anything less.

Sampai orang pijak kepala
I wish Najib had Khalid Ibrahim’s gumption like how our MB so swiftly sacked the DAP and PKR excos.
Instead Najib prefers to coddle his enemies — e.g. how he allows The J-Star to keep stabbing BN in the back.
And how he allows his own Ministry (the PM’s Dept) to lavish oodles of ad funding on the English online media and idiocies such as the hypocritical Global Movement of Moderates which has Wong Chun Wai as its trustee.
Comparing Najib’s “sikap merendah diri” deferring to the views of his rivals, the Tun notes that “pendapat kaum dan parti yang kuat menyokong untuk menyelamatkan kedudukan Kerajaan tidak diberi layanan yang saksama”.
I agree 101 percent with Dr Mahathir on this point. See, ‘Najib rewards his enemies, alienates Umno grassroots‘ – something I wrote in January.
The PM says “Kami mendengar”. I really don’t think so.
Najib allowing the evangelistas to run riot
Another observation made by the Tun:
“Sesungguhnya banyaklah dasar, pendekatan dan perbuatan Kerajaan pimpinan Dato Seri Najib yang merosakkan hubungan antara kaum, merosakkan ekonomi dan kewangan negara.”
Dr M says, “Jikalau tiada siapa yang sanggup menegur, biarlah saya menegur”.
Many of us are eternally grateful to you Tun for speaking up today.
Drawing a line in the sand
Dr M also says, “Saya pernah dipecat oleh Tunku Abdul Rahman, dipulau oleh Datuk Seri Abdullah dan difitnah oleh ramai. Jika kerana menegur saya akan didera, terpaksalah saya terima”.
The Tun concludes, “Bukanlah saya tidak sayang pemimpin. Tetapi saya lebih sayang bangsa dan negara saya.”
I believe that Article 153 of the federal constitution was framed, quite necessarily, to protect the bangsa Melayu.
Bangsa dan negara, membentuk negara bangsa
They fly into a murderous rage whenever they’re called “pendatang”.
But nonetheless, these people who become so ballistic so easily are themselves haters who despise the Malay race, are hostile to Islam and full of contempt for almost everything that is overtly Malay or Islamic about this country.
It is not only the Malays who require protection. The rest of the ethnic and religious minorities in the country seriously need to be protected from these aggressive, sneaky Yahudi Yeohs too.
Najib the polished bangsawan does not appear to be up to the task.
