ABOVE: Minister of Religious Affairs Mujahid Yusof Rawa embracing the Dapsters’ favourite preacher Zakir Naik
“Dia hanya ambil headline, lalu maki hamun dan cerca. Macamlah Menteri Agama ini bodoh sangat?” — Minister in charge of Islamic affairs Mujahid Yusof Rawa complaining about Muslim netizens who raised an outcry over his khalwat remarks.
“It’s not our level [as a cabinet minister] to discuss with them,” he said of the vocal social media commenters slamming him (video below).
How ironic. Is not what’s good for the goose also good for the gander?
After becoming the ruling power, the Christian-friendly Mujahid is fuming because he is now at the receiving end and has to take flak from the religiously orthodox group whereas pre-GE14, Harapan leaders did nothing to rein in their nasty hardcore supporters who dominate the social media.
According to the ‘progressive’ Mujahid, the [Muslim conservative] netizens blindly “criticized and insulted” him. Where was his righteous indignation earlier when the secular liberals terrorized all who dared to buck the oppressive Bangsa Malaysia groupthink?
Even today. You’d reckon that after their side winning the federal government, those deranged Dapsters could learn to show a little bit of graciousness. Evidently not.
In the run-up to GE13 (ref. tweet above), they had splashed their verbal acid at Michelle Yeoh, then during GE14 piling on some more abuse and now – after their evangelist leaders are comfortably ensconced in Putrajaya – they still continue spewing their vitriol at the pro-BN/Bond Girl for her past support of Najib Razak.
Online thugs who are unable to slough off their corrossive anger and perpetual outrage – that’s what they are.

Meanwhile in America …
Trump: “They have become too extreme”
“In their quest for power, the radical Democrats have turned into an angry mob,” President Donald Trump said yesterday when celebrating the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh is to be sworn in as the ninth justice this evening.
The right wing American president characterized his country’s alternative political party as an “angry, left-wing mob”. In a two-party system, the ‘Anti This’ and ‘Anti That’ Democratic Party has “become too extreme”, Trump told a thunderous MAGA rally in Topeka, Kansas.
He said that from the moment his nominee was announced, the Dems had sought to “demolish and destroy” Kavanaugh.
“Taking Kavanaugh down would unleash forces from the darkest side of American politics in perpetuity.” — Republican senator Lindsey Graham cautioned, adding “And if you think only one side is capable of doing this, you’re mistaken“.
Golden Rule: What goes around comes around
Judge Kavanaugh himself, in his final testimony before the senate judicial committee, relayed to the American public in the live hearing how the Democratic Party and its aligned liberal media were on a “search and destroy” mission against him.
His description of events was one shared by the Potus; Trump yesterday also described the “disgraceful campaign” against his apex court pick as an attempt at “political and personal destruction”. Yup, the Greater of Two Evils knows no boundaries when it comes to shooting down a target.
“They threw away and threw aside every notion of decency and due process,” Trump added, saying, “What he [Kavanaugh] and his wonderful family endured at the hands of Democrats is unthinkable”. Quite so. And if I may add, Dr Kua Kia Soong is similarly an example of a comparable individual here in Malaysia enduring endless harassment at the hands of DAP operatives.
But be warned. What Dapsters are today doing viciously to their victims may boomerang when their opponents one day decide to give them a taste of their own medicine.
Liberals, conservatives have little in common anymore
In the side-by-side area graphs above representing core values, the blue colour denotes Democrats and red, Republicans. The area coloured grey is where values of the liberal Democrats and the conservative Republicans overlapped. The two surveys had been carried out by the Pew Research Center over a period of intervening years.
More than two decades ago in 1994, there was greater convergence between both parties as can be observed by the biggish grey area. By last year (2017), they had drifted further apart in their values. You can see the grey area is much shrunk, with Democrats drifting to the extreme left and Republicans drifting to the so-called “far right”.
One example of a hot button issue consonant with the American left’s liberal values is their backing for abortion on demand. In contrast, the conservative right are religious and “pro life”. Other contentious issues are LGBT rights and freedoms, and particular to our Malaysian context, the matter of criminalizing khalwat.
Pew Research Center – see chart above – found in its mid-2017 survey that 92 percent of “solid liberals” believe “religion should be kept separate from government policies”.
Liberals are militantly secular. In Malaysia they’re no different.

Don’t forget that one side of the political divide is “willing to cause such destruction in the pursuit of power” (to borrow Trump’s words). This willingness can be equally applied to the DAP and its own angry mob.
The American public elected Trump as a last resort “to stop the radical Democrats” and their violent Antifa demonstrators. Very soon the Malaysian public too will elect a right-wing government as the last resort to stop the bullies from shoving their liberalism down our throat.
