Hey! Surprises never cease

What you talking la dei?

Yesterday I read that Tun Mahathir came out in defense of the curriculum of the BTN courses saying that it should be retained and not revamped or updated or anything. Why? The old man claims that it is good for instilling patriotism and what not. This despite the fact that first hand accounts of past participants have almost proven conclusively that it did just the opposite.

And today, when I opened the newspaper I read that Mr. I-love-to-put-my-foot-in-mouth Nazri Aziz has fired a salvo at the Tun. Even calling the old coot a racist! Now that's very surprising indeed. Isn't it? Just read what Nazri said.

Nazri said: “You talk about patriotism, love for the country. Patriotism is for all Malaysians regardless of race. Therefore, the money spent on BTN to have courses must reflect the 1Malaysia slogan by the PM. It should not only be to raise patriotism among the Malays. Malaysia is for all races so I disagree with any syllabus which only concentrates on patriotism just on one community, I disagree. If they have a problem with that, I want to know what is their problem,”

Nazri questioned if Utusan Malaysia, which has been at the forefront of defending BTN courses, believes that Malaysia belongs only to the Malay community.

“Do they want to say that Malaysia belongs only to the Malays and the government is only a Malay government? Should only the Malays be given the spirit of patriotism? Other races are not patriotic about their country? So I want them to point out to me where is it that I’ve gone wrong If I disagree with the past syllabus,” he added.

Nazri also questioned Utusan for deceiving Malaysians on BTN.


I apologise for not being able to credit the source of the above story because it was sent to me by a Niamah!!! reader. But you can read more about it here.

I have no idea of what Nazri's motives are for coming out so strongly about the BTN and reinforcing what many Malaysians are unhappy about recently. But whatever the man's reasons are today I will drink a toast to his health and continued wisdom. Way to go, Nazri!

Niamah!!!

yeah he became wise only after the old man stepped on his tail. Still I agree with him that this country is not just for the malays it's for all communities. If they continue with such race divisive courses nobody can guarantee it will not lead to ethnic cleansing.

At last this fler talk sense with regard to the BTN's modules.Even Razaleigh came out openly to denounce the programme that incite hatred and racist in nature.Mahathir got to rest his remaining days in tending to his grandchildren as he is getting more senile than before.His way of thinking is backward and racist like the old days when he wrote the book Malay dilemma.It would stir the volcano to erupt if Najib follows his method of reshaping the counting blindly.

Hello Patrick,
Recently, there have been many instances where issues were raced like BTN,education,proton etc. pitching the PM against the former PM.There is a 3rd party agenda?? Just smell a rat!

Anonymous said...

Wow Nazri, great way to score points, yes BTN encourages patriotism amongs duh duh duh race only, cheers!

zakwan said...

Anybody can developed ballz 2 slam TDM
But 2 whacked the mouthpiece of UMNO n accusing them of havin a denial syndrome is indeed applaudable

So in a way,kudos 2 Nazri

But want 2 know what I think?
Nazri's tirade against Mamakthir is merely 2 distract attention from the PM of 1Malaysia's deafening silent on the whole BTN fiasco

a bloody racist called another racist a bloody racist, niamah high!!!

amoker said...

Of course he speaks out. His boss, Najib is as silent as a mouse leaving him open for attack.

A typical case of "The pot calling the kettle black", no?
Like you, l take my hats off to Nazri this time..... ehhh, why the elegant silence from Najib? To be an effectice PM, one must take the bulls by its horn, and say it like a man.... if something is not right in the country, say so lah...... don't do another Pak-Lah's-elegant-silence

Anonymous said...

Don't be too sure.....the Nazri butthead will come out soon with a rebuttal that he has been mis-quoted.

Are we that stupid to believe the ever vengeful carTun Mamakthir will take this lying down? Even on his deathbed, the carTun will not die lying down.

Maybe after all the brickbats he received from bloggers and commentors, he is wising up. We must all end racism in our beloved country Malaysia. Yes. Go Nazri Go!!!. I am gradually losing respect for TDM everytime he utter a racist remark.

Im not sure why but after the "revamp", we won't know the course's content and we will be silenced, instead we should do away with BTN as suggested by Kuli, the only good man in UMNO, to date.

ANN BK3 said...

He's been 'butchered' by the rakyat for so long for playing the bad guy role that he's saying ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!. Now that he is the 'good guy' all be afraid be very afraid and it's harder still to swallow at face value all his rhetorics. However, with X'mas round the corner let's in the spirit of celebration be generous and give him credit on this 1, rightly or wrongly.

Now the Umno-leaning blogs are whacking Nazri. Hey, what's going on here? Is there something going on that I'm not aware of? But one thing I do know, this old man is getting to be a pain in the you know where.

Hi Pat,

Could it b another "sandiwara" fr UMNO! But hats off to Nazri 4 sayin wat other BN ministers dare not say.

Anonymous said...

Yes he is speaking sense for once...

But I don't trust him. There's an ulterior motive.

And it clearly shows how politicians do not defend the rights of the people (Looking at the Malays who are making hoo haas out there), but themselves.

I read the Chinese Oriental Daily today. It was reported that Tun M said that we should grant citizenship to the Indons who have long stayed in Malaysia. He said Malaysia & Indonesia are actually abang-adik, it was the British rulers then that separated the people.

Niamah Tun M for getting his priority wrong. You should give credit to the Chinese and Indians in Malaysia who are not given citizenship. They have paid tax to enrich your coffers. As for the Indons, how many of them are highly trained professionals that can add valu to Bolehland?

Tun M has indeed nyanyuk and sheould be sent to Muzium Negara for rehabilitation!

Nazri Det said...

TDM is doing a kamikaze to erase his legacy with those nonsense.

No surprise those younger generation will see him as an irrelevant old cock.

perhaps Marina Mahathir should wake his father up to reality.

former BTN director Datuk Johari Abdul has confirmed that Mahathir was teh one who made BTN a full-fledged racist indoctrination agency to sow racial hatred.

Uncle Teoh.

I think you just wanted an excuse to drink. Remember a swallow does not a summer make.

I attended the BTN. Generally it is good. We were taught about the history of Tanah Melayu. Nowadays, Chinese and Indian dont like to know about Tanah Melayu, they know only Malaysia, as if Malaysia is plucked from the sky. They don't realise that Malaysia is made up of Tanah Melayu, Sabah and Sarawak.

Mr Niamah,
I never thought I will pike my coffee. But there is always the fisrt time.
Oh it's not about this 'two-five-boy'.
You should read about what the 'saliva more than flam' fella from a 'apa nama party' ... Berakan?

That story is worth a 1000 Niamahs.

SeniorMind said...

Dr M full of paradoxs.
Age is catching up with hm.
He better keep his mouth shut otherwsise his senile n=mind very soon wipe away his deteriorating legacy !

Nazri should 'lawan' Bapa Rasis.

Anyway what is the concept of 1Malaysia that TDM find not consistent with his BTN doctrine?

anak anjing said...

Prior to his retirement in 2003, the former premier, who ruled the nation for more than two decades, was heralded as the 'Father of Modernisation'.

Now he has been conferred with a new title 'BR' by Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz.

'BR' = Bloody Racist or Bapa Rasis

Upin Mudah Lupa said...

Today's Utusan, Berita Harian, NST and The Star did not carry any report on Nazri-TDM's tit-for-tat.
Self-censorship?
ha ha ha...

At least we now know who is the 'Father of all racism'.
He is an ex-Pakistani who has been conning the Malays into supporting him. A truly Bloody Racist.

I remember the 1980's UMNO power tussle when that old goat MM narrowly defeated Ku Li, Nazri voted against MM but at the same time he actively supported Anwar (in MM's camp then) to head UMNO Youth. After the election MM conducted a Jap-styled (his infamous 'Look East' policy) 'Sook Ching' of all UMNO politicians aligned to Ku Li, except for Nazri. He was shielded from the fratricidal blood letting by none other than Anwar. There is historic bad blood coursing in their veins to explain the current spat. I read KJ may join the cabinet, if so, I think the PM will have more dependable and loyal ministers to push his agenda for 1Malaysia. Good work Nazri, I hope your memories and generosity still serve you well.

TDM has confirmed that BN is racist with this statement:

"Umno, MCA and MIC are all racist parties...Get out of these racist parties if you are anti-racist!"

monsterball said...

When Mahathir is upset or unhappy...you will see the real Mahathir with his famous twisting style of talking.
Noticed he went all out to literally kill UMNO when he was not happy with Pak Lah.
Najib make sure Mamak is happy...out come Nazri...calling him."Father of Racism"
Mahathir have openly accept he is a racist by saying UMNO is a racist party...and the show mus go on....with Lim Kit Siang ..having so much fun...with his remarks..waiting for Najib to respond.
To me..Mahathir is.."Father of All Evils"...and strangely..most UNNO members call him."Father of Modernization"
Mahathir have so many fatherhood tiles..that put shame to previous PMs..or is it .the or other way round?
And I must add..ex Judge Ian Chin called him ...the devil reincarnated.
Playing dirty politics...all his life...encouraging corruptions..so that he can steal billions of tax payers money for his family...Mahathir 22 years disunited Malaysians..making him so happy to divide and rule..on going...by Najib..as UMNO actually..have no other choice.

This ploy to incite the Malays to hate the non-Malays on the one hand and to preach the '1Malaysia' concept to the non-Malays on the other hand is a desperate strategy by Umno to unite the Malays against the perceived threats of the non-Malays while subtlety reaching to the non-Malays with their rhetorical concept of a '1Malaysia' merely for electoral support.


One cannot imagine that Utusan Malaysia could have taken the bold step to write its inflammatory articles without the tacit support and agreement from the Home Ministry.

By condoning and allowing Utusan Malaysia a free rein to publish racist and inflammatory articles, the Home Ministry must bear full responsibility should any untoward accident occur as a result of their publications.

tan said...

During Pak Lah's tenure, Dr. M loaded his machine gun with uncountable round of bullets and hit the target most of the time. He seems to unload all the bullets since Najib took over the hot seat. Except for the spat between Nazri on BTN issues, he has been hibernating of late. Perhaps, the fire will be re-ignited if in need KJ is appointed a Ministerial position. Let's wait and see.

Fatimah said...

As a Malaysian (and Malay), I cannot understand how semi-literates like Zaini and Awang are allowed free rein in what used to be a paper of repute. For one thing, it may indicate the level of thinking in most institutions that seem to be run and ruined by such mediocre people.

No wonder the number of Malays applying to leave the country. You know, I am a product of the Universiti Malaya in 70s and early 80s and I cannot imagine that such an article could even see the light of day. It's is these journalists and organisations that need to be investigated.

Woe betide BN if no action is taken against Awang Selamat and Zaini Hassan. They ought to be in a ISA cell for stoking racial sentiments. BN will be doomed in the next election if the PM is going to condone Utusan Malaysia's dangerous moves.

Remember, the 'Modern Melayu' are neither stupid nor sleeping. They will teach Umno and Utusan a good lesson soon.

If the police or the home minister are not going to take action against Zaini for insulting the Indians, the rakyat will have to take action against Utusan and Zaini. This by boycotting Utusan. Don't buy it and ask the Indian vendors not to supply it.
