Immediately after Harapan won the general election, they and their smug supporters were gloating all over the BN losers.
Apparatchiks of the victorious party were derisive and some operatives even downright abusive when lording over those of us voters in the defeated camp.
Another phenomenon at the time was noted in my blog post on 11 May 2018 titled ‘So bizarre how Dapsters are embracing Mahathirism’.
Whole day holding on to the phone. My hands are numb.—

Double standards much?
The half-term half-assed Harapan government has now – most thankfully – imploded.
Bemoaning Harapan’s loss of power last week on Feb 28, Malaysiakini columnist Zan Azlee cried, “Our rights as Malaysians have been snatched away by the politicians”.
I wonder if Zan and his geng sewaktu had also felt a similar pang earlier when the rights of Umno voters in Sedili, Johor Lama, Endau, Sungai Manik and Tualang Sekah were “snatched away” by their feckless politicians named below.
Ironically, it was Zan who had proclaimed on 11 May 2018: “It’s hard to be gracious towards BN” (see below).
A mere one day later on May 12, three Umno Aduns – Rasman Ithnain, Roslaily Johari and Alwiyah Talib – had frogged over to Mahathir’s Pribumi party in Johor.
Also on 12 May 2018, Perak Umno Aduns Zainol Fadzi Paharuddin and Nolee Ashilin Mohamed Radzi both threw their weight behind Pakatan Harapan to allow Pribumi‘s Ahmad Faizal Azumu to become the state Menteri Besar. Zainol joined Pribumi shortly afterwards whereas Nolee switched to become an ‘independent’.

Harapan people behaving just as how we’d expect
Fast forward 22 months into our present day, and something similar has recurred.
In Johor, this time Pemanis Adun Dr Chong Fat Full pulled out from his party PKR to become an “independent”. His defection shifted the balance of power from Harapan to Perikatan.
What YB Chong did a couple of days ago is no different from what the two Umno Perak Aduns previously did to enable a Harapan state government to be formed in Perak two years ago on 19 May 2018.
But just look at the venom being spewed at Dr Chong and the vitriolic political groupies who cursed his family for seven generations to come.
BELOW: Like demented pyromaniacs, Harapan monkeys are burning bridges everywhere
On the current overall crossover situation benefitting Perikatan, Zan Azlee commented yesterday, “So they [PKR et al] left the coalition [Harapan] and joined forces with the opposition [BN] to take over the government. Yes, it does sound dirty as a garbage truck in the 1980s”.
Yeah, call the other side rubbish …
Meanwhile in the social media, Harapan supporters are heaping hate on Umno, on PAS and on the Pribumi crowd. That’s a lot of Malays to be hating on.
And there I’d thought the Bangsar Malaysians are always preaching ‘Peace & Love’, “We’re all brothers and sisters”, “We love our enemy and turn the other cheek” as well as blowing other speech bubbles sugarcoated with honey.
BELOW: #WeWillBeBack — boasts the DAP … No, you won’t; you’ve already burned too many bridges
Btw, Syed Saddiq ‘liked’ the above entry in DAP’s Facebook about fighting The Corrupt and The Traitors.
Amboi! Perasan betoi
Living in the DAP world of delusion indeed.
