Since Haris Ibrahim will be emigrating or is perhaps already out of the country to dodge his sedition charge, it’s only fitting that we take a short walk down memory lane to remember him by.
In his 5 Sept 2008 blog posting titled ‘Last call for flight BN-916-ex-ile to Australia‘, Haris posted the graphics below:
(a) the BN logo upended
(b) poster with a notice saying
- “BN in exile”
- “Former prisoner colony now home to fugitives from justice”

How ironic, ya?
From his bravado above, it appears that Haris was persuaded that Anwar’s ‘Sept 16’ move to entice a crossover of Barisan MPs would succeed and with Pakatan soon in Putrajaya, the BN folks would have no choice but to exile themselves to Australia.
Haris even mocked the then premier Abdullah Badawi with the lyrics from the song Leaving on a Jetplane – “all my bags are packed, I’m ready to go” …
Raja Petra accused of Race Politics
Haris’s supporters have poured scorn on Raja Petra Kamarudin for what they call the latter’s “running away” to Manchester.
The parting of ways between the two blogger otai was recorded in the 23 Sept 2012 post ‘Fear mongering ala RPK style‘ in Haris’ blog.
Below is the relevant portion where Haris accuses Raja Petra of “untiring efforts to sow the seeds of fear” with relation to a potential race riot ala May 13.
In contrast, Haris claims himself to be “blind to colour and race for as long as [he] can remember”.
“The only thing racist in this country is Umno, BN, Dr M and the mainstream media,” Haris proclaims. He and his mentee Hannah Yeoh sound so alike, if I may take the opportunity to add.
Raja Petra: “Do we still want to remain in denial?”
In his column on 19 Apr 2012 headlined ‘Remember the 3Rs?‘, Raja Petra wrote:
“…when Malaysians go to the polls in the coming election, they will not be voting as Malaysians. They will be voting as Malays, Chinese, Indians and natives of East Malaysia. So, do we still want to remain in denial?”
Haris riposted, “Sorry, Pete, but not this Malaysian”. He declared, “I’ll cast my vote, as I’ve done all these years, as anak Bangsa Malaysia”.
Well, since Haris is emigrating, then obviously he cannot vote anymore in future Malaysian elections. His Jerusubang sheeple must be sorely disappointed at the loss of Haris’ pivotal ballot.
So who was right – Haris or Raja Petra?
Double irony: Both of them in exile and at two opposite ends of the world from Malaysia.
To recap, Raja Petra said the May 2013 electorate would vote according to ethnic orientation and interests whereas Haris said that they would vote as colour-blind Malaysians. Whose prediction was more accurate – Haris or Raja Petra’s?
Haris had told the sheeple in a ceramah in Malacca a few months before the 505 Chinese tsunami that he was “grateful to God for opening my heart to feel the pain and misery of the many who are suffering under an oppressed regime and to give me the strength to now try and atone for my past wrongs”.
Essentially, Haris reinforced the belief held by his ceramah audience that the ruling regime was oppressing them and generally causing the rakyat pain, misery and untold suffering.
Thank you very much Haris Ibrahim for your tireless efforts in helping Pakatan to their landslide victory in the last general election and success in wresting the popular vote.
They are reaping the fruits of your labour, praise the Lord.

And we mustn’t forget the fourth ‘G’, Greed, either.
I told them I was grateful to God for opening my heart to feel the pain and misery of the many who are suffering under an oppressive regime and to give me the strength to now try and help my God’s Party oust those wicked, low class BN politicians who are guilty of all kinds of wrongdoings.
When we take over Putrajaya, you all – my dearest suffering sheep – will taste Utopia.
