Tun’s ten year itch, maybe

On 16 Feb 2011, Mahathir wrote:

“… apa yang keluar dari bibir Nik Aziz sebagai tujuan hidupnya ialah untuk memenangi pilihanraya dan menjadi pemerintah bersama DAP dan PKR. Untuk ini Nik Aziz secara terbuka sanggup mengkafirkan orang Islam Umno, bersedia untuk bekerjasama dengan syaitan untuk menjayakan perjuangannya, bekerjasama dengan orang yang menolak perjuangannya untuk mendirikan negara Islam ala PAS, mempertahankan pendapat tokoh bukan Islam supaya orang Islam longgarkan pegangan mereka kepada ajaran agama Islam”.

In the paragraph above – refer passage No.16 in Chedet post titled ‘Jawapan kepada Nik Aziz’ – Mahathir likened DAP to “syaitan”.

Mahathir had blogged his spicy view of DAP and Nik Aziz back in 2011.

Next month, we head into 2021 — a full ten years on from the cited Chedet entry.

As we know, the old man likes to return again and again at periodic intervals to his pet ideas, e.g. PPSMI, Proton best, Singapore bad, Japan good and so on.

Despite the interregnum of 2016-20, Mahathir’s negative opinion of DAP has never really dissipated.

Now what do I think might possibly trigger him against the DAP again?

If I have to make a guess, it could well be – in this instance – Nga Kor Ming whom Tun has never liked and excluded from his 2018 Harapan cabinet. See Nga’s previous provocation below.

In what way can Nga again provoke Mahathir in our present-day political landscape?

Nga’s hidung tak mancung, pipi tersorong-sorong offer to work with Umno today can’t have pleased the aquiline-nosed Mahathir any.

PM4 cum PM7 was royally pissed off when DAP was last sleeping with PAS. Witness Mahathir then likening the party to “syaitan”.

What does he think of DAP currently clamouring to hop into bed with Zahid’s Umno?

Will Mahathir throw off his restraint and again call the DAP “syaitan”? Or better yet “dajjal”.
