Scrap 1Malaysia already! It reminds angry M’sians of 1MDB
Dear PM’s people
(I mean the locals, not the omputih consultants with vested interests),
The slogan “1Malaysia” is poison now. Nothing positive will come out of it anymore.
When you trot out 1Malaysia, it automatically reminds the rakyat of 1MDB. And when 1MDB is brought to mind, ordinary citizens get angry at Najib Razak.
And it is not only the Star-reading, DAP-voting people who are angry at Najib. Utusan-reading, Umno-voting people are angry at the PM too.
Please don’t bother bringing up ‘National Unity’ even though August is Merdeka month. Instead of being made to feel warm and fuzzy over the idea of 1Malaysia, the cynical rakyat only think you’re trying to use the ‘unity’ appeal – and its converse, the spectre of race riots and Chinese scapegoat – to divert public attention from 1MDB.
The feeling 1Malaysia invokes is symbolized by the ‘ANGRY’ icon in the J-Star‘s reader feedback – screencapped below – to the article ‘Najib: It’s time to strengthen unity, not dwell on 1MDB‘.
A total of 85 percent of EvangeliSTARs are angry at Najib even when he calls for “unity”. Pro-establishment folks are no less turned off by 1Malaysia unity blah-blah-blah.

If No.1 wades into an event like #nothingtohide that day, and his Rent-a-Crowd wave the “I love PM” placards, there’s no guarantee that they won’t be manhandled and the placards stomped upon.
I believe that the ‘1Malaysia’, ‘I love PM’ and ‘Im4u’ placards are made of plastic. Send them to the landfill immediately. Also stop giving out 1Malaysia souvenirs (mugs, flasks, T-shirts, etc) at government functions.
Drop 1Malaysia to the bottom of the sea. It’s better that the empty rhetoric 1Malaysia concept, coined by overpriced image and publicity consultants, be drowned rather than have the BN Titanic sink and its caption along with the listing, leaking ship.
The less 1Malaysia is in sight, the less reminders there are of 1MDB. How stupid is it to splash 1Malaysia everywhere and have people reminded of 1MDB constantly?
1MDB is a four-letter word. 1Malaysia is getting to be a dirty word too and associated in public perception with Rosmah.
So stop dwelling on 1Malaysia already. It’s like a sado-masochist compulsively slicing at his own toes with a Bugis keris. Do read the adverse reactions by pro-BN Malays here.
And by the way, The J-Star has selected a subtly unflattering photo of the PM, don’t you think? The look on his face is a bit like a deer caught in the headlights.
Such sneaky bastards – these EvangeliSTARs!
