The picture of a thousand words

When I came home from a long day of work on Saturday night I turned on the television and the news was on. It was about Najib Razak officiating the launch of Malaysia's newest and of course, race-based political party, Makkal Sakti.

The Prime Minister was in fine form reading off the tele-prompter (I think) and dressed in batik and draped with and electric yellow sash. There was a lot of hand waving, pointing and other speech-making type gestures. But what Najib was saying was basically what a wonderful bunch of people the Indian community is. How much the Indian community has contributed to the development of Malaysia. How the Indian community must and always will be part and parcel of any development plans for the country.

Then the president of the new party, R.S.Thanenthirran was shown making his speech. And he starts to say how another party is needed to represent the country's Indian population. How the new party would work closely with the Barisan Nasional. How he sees the Barisan Nasional being the only workable coalition to bring prosperity to the Indian community.

Okay la, so I paraphrase very badly but I am sure that was the gist of the 2 speeches la. This type of speeches are quite normal in this country of ours. And we are so used to hearing our politicians mouthing off these things with such regularity.

Then the next day I opened the New Sunday Times and saw this photo of a thousand words...................

Look at the expression on the PM's face: "Heh...heh...heh...Ya right! These fools will believe anything. I am so clever I scare myself!"

His right arm is held up as if to stop someone from coming through: " remember your position ya, Thamby? 3 steps behind please. Thank you. Jeez! Some people! Really!"

And the Makkal Sakti fler? Look at his expression. And his hunched shoulders and downcast eyes. As if in total submission. "Yes sir. We know where we stand. Thank you, sir."



Well, I did say that I got the idea for this post late at night after a long, tiring day. I might have been hallucinating.

I'll add to that sash:
"Wira Sakti C4 Perancis"

Thambi kena cilok!

I hope the welfare of our Indian friends can improved with the magic of 1malaysia + Makkal Sakti.

Sivaji the Boss would be proud of all of you.

Cerai untuk Cuti said...

No money for holiday, then ask for a divorce (if you are in Terengannu)....

T’ganu offers free honeymoons
to couples bent on divorce

A free second honeymoon trip awaits any Terengganu married couple on the brink of breakup. The state will pay for it. However, the honeymoon package comes with some counselling. The aim is to bring peace between feuding couples and check the reportedly soaring divorce rates in the state.

... another case of "divide and rule" at it's ugliest, something our colonial masters left behind. Best we got rid of it, and NOW!!!

First they took on the street, insisting that BN never took Indian seriously and had been alienate Malaysian Indian for decades..

Then suddenly now, R.R.Thanenthirran sees the BN are the only workable coalition to bring prosperity to the Indian community?

My piece of thought..

Dear fellow Malaysian Indian,
Why only now after so many decade BN are going to help u guys? It's because they are losing your support as well as the Chinese support not t mention Malays too..

What will happen when their position is strengthen? or the opposition influence is faded? How many more years our Lim Kit Siang, Karpal Singh, Anwar Ibrahim, Tok Nik Aziz have to make an impact?

If not for the Tsunami GE12, do you think our PM would take this effort to even mention this party Makkal Sakti? I bet he would better off at home scratching Dotty's back..

Why Malaysian are so forgetful..

what does samy think about all this?
i think, like the long suffering wife who no longer appeals to her philandering husband, samy has resigned himself to najib's flirtations with these political rivals ans will bear with it as long as najib does not bring any one of them "home"

Ha Ha! You are a riot, Pat.
I think for today, even Samy Velu thinks you are great.
He is probably laughing like me and saying "Padan muka Makkal Sakti"

Yesterday Najib praise Makkal Sakti and Indian community..

Today Najib 'order' MCA Central Committee members to make decision based on the result of MCA EGM..

Well although I never liked MCA but I felt atleast OTK has the balls to call for an EGM although he knew it was a 50/50 fight..

Well Najib, why dun U call for a snap election now? Let see whether the majority Malaysian endosed you to lead the country.. No Balls??

'Nia Kong'

A commenter on another blog said of the photo that the garland, the sash, the whole works, make our man look like a Mak Nyah! Omigosh!! some people can be soooo ruuude when they are on the Net, hehehe.

These bunch of so-called saviors of the Indians willingly wanted to be screwed by UMNO because its worth the returns in $$$.

Like Samy, the leader of MakalSakthi is out to make a fast buck at the expense of the poor Indians when the curry is still hot.

You are at your best...when you are sharp and witty.
I enjoy this post...which is not easy to compose.
Great one...Pat!!
What can I add more to describe him?
His "1 World" got all laughing..demanding "1 WAR"
Balls carrying MCA...promoting.."1 MCA" clobbered and killed....making it more than 3 and a rojak party.

We ought to give some due respect to the new leader of What the Makkterfu^#@%*& Sakker$#@*& Party and start calling him Datuk R.S.KHANNIhirran as he will definitely get his LATUKship before this year's over.

You hit the bull's eye Patrick. The picture tells the same thing to me, an ethnic Inidian

Geronimo said...

You know, Pat. Jibby said he donated RM100m to help the Indian community. The question is why "donate" and only now, you know what I mean, just before the Bagan Pinang by-election? I thought this kind of money should already be in some form of an annual development fund for the Indians as part of the national budget. Next, why only RM100m? If we prorate since 1972, that is when the NEP started, the Indians are only getting RM2.3m per annum and if we were to base it on the net present value (NPV), the amount is even less today. Even if it was RM100m per annum, the Indians are still short-changed compared with the billions UMNO is stashing away. And the Indians in Bagan Pinang bought it all, hook, line and sinker!

Dear Patrick,
Off the track a bit, i received the following email, hope you could make something out of it after viewing the youtube:
> > Minister of Culture that lacks culture!!!
> This should be shown during the next General Election
> to remind voters of what they could be getting into from
> Check this out:

TQ Patrick.
Man who can't stand it.

I think the so-called Makkal Sakti has betrayed the gullible Indians.

I am not surprised there is no step forward for the community.

Najib's 1Malaysia call has charmed the Indians, for he is the snake charmer.

Najib said to Thanenthirran ( just like the monopoly game) " Don't go to jail ( Kamunting), straight to the start box and collect your millions"!

ANN BK3 said...

Get real and down to earth R.S. Thanenthirran!! just remember your position ya, Thamby? you will be kept in the freezer compartment and as and when you are needed for display purposes, you will be taken out to be 'thawed'. I can safely say that this will be your JOB FUNCTION.. zero stress but rich pickings. On one hand indians are appeased that they have a new wira party MAKKAL SAKTI to champion
their cause and on the other hand, devious najis can be seen to be concerned with the indian cause and thus have a greater chance to rope them back to help uplift his sagging image in their eyes.. yahoo
how convenient!!.

The once Anti Goverment Hindraf turned into Ass Licking Pro Govt. The way they seemed to celebrate when Najid officiated the ceremony makes me wanna puke. Wonder how much their support costed. I think Makkal Sakti means "Double Headed Snake" in Tamil.

Will Thanenthirran be made a Minister?

"WHY" the sudden change of heart?? Some goodies were offered..????? Or is this the only way to get rid of MIC forever...???

Since PM endorsed MS, how is it that we don't hear any "supportive" comments by Mr. MIC...????
Where are the "YES" men...??????

And now...... MIC pride "themselves" for bringing Indian votes to BN at Bagan Pinang.
I guess people don't know the meaning of "SHAME"...!!!!!!

What a bloody bunch of clowns lah....!!!!

R.S.Thanenthirran should be made a Minister in the 1Malaysia cabinet for his excellent role in helping BN to win Bagan Piang by-election.

Anything less is a shortchange to him.

Makkal Sakti!
