It’s the Christian thing to do.
Zakir Naik has ‘apologized’. So Syed Saddiq rightly telegraphs ‘you’re forgiven, my brother and welcome to the fold’. It is the ‘love your neighbour’ thing to do.
To the DAP running dogs, please learn to extend your ‘Peace & Love’ too to PAS (and Pribumi’s) favourite Muslim preacher.
Why DAP is only chihuahua sized
Mahathir appointed this budak setahun jagung from his own party to cabinet and now Malaysia’s youngest ever minister has the clout to slam you (parents against khat in vernacular schools) as “bodoh sombong” — see Syed Saddiq’s latest tweet below.
I can agree with the “bodoh” part of Saddiq’s description. Memang bodoh bukan kepalang! Stupid is as stupid does, so the Chinese are getting and fully deserve what they voted 95% for.
Putting a bow on M’sia Baru groupthink
Kah kah kah, welcome to the new normal in New Malaysia. The breaking news article titled ‘Minister labels groups ‘bodoh sombong’ for threatening school boycott’ is fast attracting a record-breaking number of comments in Malaysiakini.
In this morning‘s Malaysiakini Top 5 most commented articles – see screenshot below – all the newsmaking politicians were ministers from Mahathir’s party.
Topping the list with 465 comments is the report headlined ‘Syed Saddiq hosts dinner for Zakir, says ‘let’s move on”, followed by ‘No deportation of Zakir Naik for now – Mahathir’ with 318 comments.
‘Malays have conceded too much to “racists”, minister reiterates stand” is the fourth most commented Malaysiakini story currently and involving the Flying Car minister from Pribumi.
Lastly, Syed Saddiq makes a second appearance in the Top 5 for courting Zakir Naik (picture below). The hate preacher was invited to dine at the Boy Minister’s home; an invitation that is unlikely to be extended to the Dapster hordes that fought bloody fang and claw to install Harapan in Putrajaya.
But still, why so angry at the boy? Where’s your love? Practise what you preach lah.
Pribumi much more virulent than Umno
Chinese voters thought themselves so clever to have kicked out Umno – regime changing the old Malay party for this new Malay party.
For the record, Umno’s boy wonder Khairy was 37 years old when he was made the Youth and Sports Minister in 2013, by which time he had already served five years as YB in parliament.
Comparatively Mahathir’s Wonderboy was gifted his Youth and Sports portfolio at an age a full dozen years younger than KJ and furthermore with Syed Saddiq coming into cabinet as a freshman MP with zero experience in parliament.
And KJ, at least, is a ‘real’ Oxford graduate whereas Syed Saddiq is only being touted as Oxford potential.
I was under the impression that Chinese had disliked Mahathirism 1.0. Yet they have ushered in Mahathirism 2.0 with all the enthusiasm of a Second Coming. Hallelujah!
