How smart is that?! Launching an invasion and calling the invading army “peacekeepers”.
Very smart — both of Putin … and the DAP.
Gaslighting the gullible
Donald Trump has Vladimir’s number but most Cina DAP still don’t have the evangelical party’s number.
To ‘have someone’s number’ is an idiomatic expression which means “able to deal with somebody because one knows or understands what that person is really up to”.
The former American president spoke to two radio talk show hosts a few days ago at his Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida.
An excerpt below from their half-hour interview aired on Feb 22.
Trump: “I went in yesterday and there was a television screen, and I said, ‘This is genius’. Putin declares a big portion of the Ukraine, of Ukraine, Putin declares it [the Donbas] as independent. Oh, that’s wonderful.”
”So, Putin is now saying, ‘It’s independent,’ a large section of Ukraine. I said, ‘How smart is that?’ And he’s gonna go in and be a peacekeeper. That’s strongest peace force … We could use that on our southern border.”
“That’s the strongest peace force I’ve ever seen. There were more army tanks than I’ve ever seen. They’re gonna keep peace all right. No, but think of it. Here’s a guy who’s very savvy. I know him very well. Very, very well.”
The Russia president calling his invading army in Ukraine “peacekeepers” is the ultimate gaslight as Trump rightly snarked. Smart yes, savvy yes but ‘wonderful’ (sarcasm) no.

Why do Chinese voters allow themselves to be gaslit? Putin is not saving Ukraine and DAP is not about to ‘Save Malaysia’ either.
Let’s take another example of gaslighting to show how a group gets away with deceptively labelling themselves as the good guys and then proceed to act like thugs.
A fitting example is Antifa — the bullies posturing as ‘anti fascists’ who bravely fight against fascism, konon.
In the BLM riots across burning American cities in the summer of 2020, Antifa carried out street violence, assault (beating up passersby and bashing vehicles) and arson.
The last thing those Antifa hooligans were is ‘anti fascist’, just like the last thing Putin’s troops are now doing in Ukraine is peacekeeping.

In Malaysia, we have the snake oil merchants who call themselves Harapan.
’Hope’ is a popular word in the Christian lexicon and doubtless the coalition name was chosen by DAP rather than by PKR or Amanah.
The virtue-signalling Harapan peddle ‘hope’ to the 95 percent while cloaking themselves in Christian charity and love for their neighbours.
The behaviour of DAP and Dapsters, needless to say, is the complete opposite of what the preach.
