The mammoth street rally planned next month (Nov 19) to try and topple the Najib government is being mobilized by DAP.
Bersih 5.0 however took care yesterday to showcase some Malay faces at the flag-off of their convoys in six locations (see map).
These Bersih 5.0 Malays are either Melayu DAP such as Pak Samad or Malays aligned with the evangelical party such as the PAN leaders and Protuns.
No surprises which Malays are the DAP water carriers.
After all, “[PAN] is still largely seen as a creation of DAP,” wrote Joceline Tan in her column today.
And indeed PAN Perak deputy chairman Nizar Jamaluddin duly participated in the launching of Bersih 5.0 in Lumut, Perak.
FLASHBACK: Nizar is widely viewed as a DAP stooge
Malay Yellow Shirts vs Jamal’s Red Shirts
Another PAN man, central exco Mazlan Aliman took part in Bersih 5.0 in Johor Bahru.
Protun Khairuddin Abu Hassan was with the Bersih convoy in Kangar, Perlis. The Mahathir henchman can be seen wearing the yellow Bersih 5.0 T-shirt in the picture below.

Opposition media Malaysiakini is obsessed with the Red Shirts. The portal’s video coverage is full of Jamal Sekinchan — see below (click to enlarge panels).
Likewise opposition media The J-Star.
They’re afraid of the Red Shirt leader because the language of force spoken by Jamal is the only dialect those Bersih 4.0 thugs understand.
The first to third editions of Bersih were not countered with any show of force and this free pass led the Chinese opposition to think that they could continue to get away with their biaDAP behaviour.
But after the forceful reaction by the Red Shirts to Bersih 4.0, Cina DAP are now cagey enough to push their Malay macai to the forefront to act as human shields.
These Melayu DAP serve as window dressing to give the impression that Bersih 5.0 is multiracial as well as to buffer the Chinese Yellow Shirts from the Malay Red Shirts. It is the DAP’s brilliant Melayu-screw-Melayu strategy at work.

Act now, don’t wait for the next election
The J–Star is playing a subtle game of encouraging Bersih 5.0 while at the same time covering their arse.
Evangelista-in-chief Wong Chun Wai hinted in his op-ed that millions of Malaysians ought to take action against our country’s immoral leadership “without having to wait for the next election”. That’s his sub rosa signal to the Jerusubang masses.
What Chun Wai actually wrote in his article today is, of course, more hedgy: “If we feel strongly that we need leaders with moral and ethical standards, not just religiously, but from a corporate governance point of view, millions of us can send that message online, in an accountable manner, without having to wait for the next election.”
Slick and slyly written above as befitting a sneaky evangelista but no cigar. The J-Star‘s real allegiance is not all that easy to hide despite Chun Wai’s adroitness.
Fear of riots amid Chinese vs Malay politics
Nonetheless Chun Wai’s broad hint does not take away from his worry about the possible consequences of Bersih 5.0.
Against the backdrop of what he describes as “a weakening ringgit, soaring prices of goods in the country and increasing cost of living” (meaning tempers are getting short as the public get poorer), Chun Wai is calling for “a special national consultative council”.
He explained, “The last time the country had one was in 1970 – a year after the bloody racial riots of 1969 that rocked the nation”.
“We will just be pretending if we say that all is well and fine in this country. It is not,” Chun Wai admitted.
Strangely enough Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, of all people, is being singled out for playing race politics. Ku Li is said by his one-time admirer Koon Yew Yin to be demonizing the DAP and Malaysian Chinese.
Koon, writing in FMT yesterday, commented that Ku Li has no moral qualms about fanning Malay insecurities of “Chinese or DAP political dominance”.
He alleged the Umno stalwart is “doing an injustice to all the young Malay DAP leaders and supporters by his opportunistic and patently dishonest and deceitful claim of the possible loss of Malay political dominance”.
If even Ku Li can be accused of being anti-Chinese, then it’s evident that the ethnic battle lines have been clearly drawn.
Annie prays for Allah to make Najib choke to death on all those ringgit he stole
By his own admission, the blogger Annie is just “stupidly bitching along” (see screenshot above). It is rare to come across a man as bitchy as Annie. Or to come across a Malay as ultra kiasu as Annie.
It is these personality traits of the mean-spirited Annie, including his propensity to lie, concoct fraudulent stories and slander that makes him a willing partner in empowering the Cina ultras.
Life of Annie blog has become a hate site where the RBAs let fly their hate speech and smear campaign against Najib, Rosmah and Umno.
Other than the reason that Annie is full of malice, there must be other incentives for Annie to allow the Dapsters a free rein on his platform, right?
Well, those extravagant holidays in Japan that Annie is so fond of, and yen for sushi indicate his expensive taste. An “educator” – as Annie claims himself to be – can’t be earning all that much, and as such Annie must be grateful for his side incomes, eh?
If you’re wondering what kind of Melayu is willing to bersekongkol dengan Dapsters, then schizo Annie serves as a good profile study, i.e. someone who can’t just stop lying.
Annie claimed there was “something wrong with Blogspot” recently on Thursday (Sept 29) and that it caused his blogroll to be “wiped out”. He further claimed to notice “that others on blogspot suffered the same thing”.
Nope. The other blogrolls on Blogspot were just fine.
And we can treat Annie’s claim on the purported wipe-out of his blogroll with the same skepticism that we treat Pakatan’s claim of a blackout in the polling centres during GE13.
Annie then comes out with the tall tale that due to the supposed wipe-out, he has had to redo his blogroll. Following the purported wipe-out and redo, Annie’s blogroll currently includes Najib Razak’s blog while a Cina ultra’s blog has been removed.
(This Cina ultra, who is a vicious critic of 1MDB, is now no longer on Annie’s blogroll.)
Who is listed on one’s blogroll is the prerogative of the blogger. You can even delete your entire blogroll as Rocky did. And Rocky doesn’t owe his readers any explanation; just do it.
The fact that Annie chose to spin a story about a small matter like the changes (Najib’s blog added in, Najib critic’s blog taken out) which he made to his blogroll only goes to show Annie’s deceitful character — quite despicable!
What a spinmaster — sick grandmother lah, terminally ill father lah – all kinds of anecdotes conveniently concocted for any occasion.

The moral of the story
Adding Najib to the Life of Annie blogroll is merely a fig leaf. It won’t take away the toxicity that makes Annie’s blog the foremost ANC platform nor dampen the vitriol of the RBAs spitting their daily venom there.
Likewise, installing a few Malay faces for the Bersih 5.0 photo ops won’t detract from the fact that DAP is the puppet master pulling the strings.
The Yellow Shirts are largely DAP. The Red Shirts are largely Umno. Bersih is a proxy for the DAP vs Umno showdown.
Bersih 5.0 is nothing more than a political move. If Bersih were anti-corruption, they would question Guan Eng’s suitability to hold public office.
If Bersih wants to use the excuse that the Penang chief minister is innocent until proven guilty, then the same principle must apply to the prime minister too.
But no, Bersih seeks to oust Najib from office through taking to the streets without anything being proven in any court of law anywhere.
What kind of Melayu would want to join the Yellow Shirts in creating public disorder? Only Annie and his ilk who “pray for Allah to make [Najib] choke to death on all those ringgit”.
