Don't blame us it's your own fucking fault!

Please read this. For the love of ... yourself.

We are all familiar with the litany of sins: twenty-two years of authoritarian rule under which the perpetuation of unjust laws, moving in tandem with the increasing politicisation of race, education and religion; and the growing dependence on money as the universal medium, have turned the state into a creature of evil.

In 1998-1999 the whole business came to a head. The impotent “People”, having suffered silently and for too long under this yoke, rallied to the cause of Anwar Ibrahim, late protégé of that geriatric villain Dr Mahathir Mohamad, and once the brightest star within that putrid, corrupt fascist behemoth the Nazi Party, I mean, the United Malays National Organisation.

The People rallied to the banner of Freedom, Justice, and Democracy without understanding a word of anything because not a single comprehensible word was spoken in their defence, and because we were too busy chanting slogans to ask. Anwar, once Finance Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of the very same regime now unmasked as a kleptocratic dictatorship (and really you would have had to be daft to think any such unmasking necessary) was the Prodigal Son, returned and transformed, into a kind of oriental Moses.

Alternative policies weren’t necessary (remember that was during the time of the Asian Financial Crisis), actions plans were irrelevant. All that mattered was the Promised Land to which he and his kind proposed to lead us. Where was that, exactly?

To be charitable, Anwar did not have much time to articulate an alternative before he was arrested, abused, tried and sentenced in a kangaroo court filled with incompetent prosecutors whose failed attempts at misdirection were saved only by the dismal rants of that mindless automaton, the late S. Augustine Paul. I speak no ill of the dead, but I make an exception for that cadaverous monkey who, as much as Eusoff Chin, Hamid Omar, and V.K. Lingham, prostituted the judiciary for a pittance in the dark corridors of the Prime Minister’s Department.

Ten years later on March 8 Anwar, and we, had another chance to change our common political future, but again we failed and even now we are engrossed with questions of private morality—whether Zaid Ibrahim drinks bourbon or owns race horses, or both, or whatever; whether Khairy Jamaluddin drinks, whether Hishammuddin Hussein got wasted on a tin of Anchor, etc. Why is this important?

Why, in Malaysia, is it more important to believe what a politician says than to judge her by what she does as a legislator? Why do all political parties fail consistently to provide social leadership and seek instead to appeal to the lowest, most vulgar, denominator and turn that into a public virtue?

Hitler distinguished between “members” and “supporters” of his party UMNO, I mean, the National Socialist German Workers’ Party:

“The greater and more essentially revolutionary an idea is, the more activistic its membership will become, since the revolutionary force of a doctrine involves a danger for its supporters, which seems calculated to keep cowardly little shopkeepers away from it.

“They will privately regard themselves as supporters, but decline to make a public avowal of this by membership. By virtue of this fact, the organisation of a really revolutionary idea obtains as members only the most active among the supporters won over by propaganda.

“And precisely in this activity of a movement’s membership, guaranteed by natural selection, lies the premise for equally active future propaganda as well as a successful struggle for the realisation of the idea.” (Mein Kampf, Vol 2, Ch XI. No I am not saying Nazism is good; but it is good to be aware of Nazi tactics, and I shall even use them for antifascist ends if you trust me enough.)

Our parties, on the other hand, seek perpetually to make members of everyone. We proceed from the base assumption that strength is good, and strength lies in numbers, and we replace activism with the whatever we can get, as long as there is a lot of it. It doesn’t matter if it’s the frothing hyperventilation of diseased fanatical sheep.

How else do you explain the quick descent of the democratic process in Hulu Selangor, even as I write this, into the juvenile hell of Molesworth & Co.? How do you explain the giddy complaisance of the MIC politician, Kamalanathan, in cozying up to the very same brand of bigot who might very well describe him, in Parliament itself, as a “toddy-drinking darkie” who should “go back to the estates” or even better, India?

How else do you explain the absence of talk about democratic obligations rather than perpetual screaming for rights and privileges?

And how else do you explain 53 years of Perikatan-Barisan Nasional despotism?

Well, whose fault is that? The politicians? They merely tell you what you want to hear, promise you things you covet but which they are unable to give and—here’s the funny bit—were yours by right in the first place. Wang for the Rakyat. A new school. Land titles. Justice. Freedom. Democracy.

We, the People, are idiots and exult in our own ignorance.

In this sense I prefer to continue living under Mahathir’s regime: at least then my enemy was one man and he was honest enough not to dodge. Now my enemy is almost the entire population led by fools parading around as saints.

And if anyone wishes to remind me of vox populi, vox Dei (the voice of the people is the voice of God), I beg to draw attention to the full quotation: Nec audiendi qui solent dicere, Vox populi, vox Dei, quum tumultuositas vulgi semper insaniae proxima sit. (But they ought not be listened to who keep saying the voice of the people is the voice of God, for the restless mob ever approaches insanity.)

It is imperative that we eject from political office that international disgrace Najib Razak, as well as the vertically-challenged human worm that follows him about, before the two of them pauperise the rest of us for their explosive, unsinkable purposes. But who for the sake of this wonderful country do we propose to replace them with?

Therein lies the rub, doesn’t it? We have no bloody idea, and we don’t damned well care.

Thanks to U-En for permission to post the above.

Niamah!!!

Actually the point should be why in this whole 'alcohol-gambling' attack - both those who use it to attack and those who crticize it use, worry about its effectiveness.

In other words, both side of our STAR WARS like 'evil-empire-rebel forces' divide have NO FAITH in the voters - believing their gullibility. We have to ask ourselves WHY?

Its funny but the person being attacked Zaid Ibrahim is the most optimistic of everyone on how the voters would vote. NOW, if anything, that is a cause of celebration and credit to the candidate. THAT is leadership - THAT is a cause for hope, a reason to give, contribute and sacrifice from anyone - why don't we point that out to all those still sitting on the fence and still holding back in giving and getting behind him?

Should we not point out to those who we have less faith in that see what a leader Zaid is? He is a better man than all of us. The other guy? Do you see such strength of character in the other guy who bows like a dog? Do you see such strength in HIS masters and their minions? 'Alcohol-gambling'? It appear experimentation has made better the man of BETTER character. It is even unholy, nay a sin, to compare a man of such LOFTY Character with such low-form of life as the other guy, his masters and his minions..

Good one Patrick. Whatever is said about our PM or his fat mamma, he just thumbed his nose on the rakyat of Malaysia.

Just keep up the pressure and let us see how fat mamma going to have her wicked ways.

If the UMNO ass licker "Kamal" wins - Malaysia is a lost cause. Malaysians deserve to be ripped off.

Kamalanathan, you bragged elsewhere that you have been in MIC for 26 years and that you know things. You have been in S Samy Vellu's team for so long. Let me ask you a simple question: What can you do for the people of Hulu Selangor, in particular Indians, that BN, Umno and MIC could not/did not do for the past 53 years?

Is it not highly questionable whether you can deliver where Umno and MIC have failed? Or are you saying that because you are Umno's candidate you can do better? That's highly unlikely. You will become even more subservient to Umno than Samy.

You did it again patrick. Equating UMNO to Nazi...You must be mad. You must have lived in a different malaysia all this 50 years, whereby 5 million minorites were genocided, whereby the majority of the minorities lived in shanty town and ghettos and lived in total poverty, where minorities don't have say in politics, where minorities are executed at the slightest rumble of dissent and the minorities held less than 10% of the economic cake. Thats the malaysia that you have lived and are living. My malaysia has got problems, but my malaysia does not practice total discrimination. My Malaysia has got it almost right for the past 50 years. Compare to some of those countries that had their independent about the same time, we can be considered a success story economically, politically and socially. I like my Malaysia. I love my malaysia. I am proud to be a Malaysian. With all its faults and success. Cause this is a country where a fisherman's son in a kampung is never destined to continue the same legacy as his father. With education and support, he may still become a fisherman, but at a larger scale. cause this country provides opportunities for those who is willing to accept Malaysia as it is, and try to make it better in a constructive and positive manner. Those who only knows how to grumble, they can live in their own version of 'Malaysia' and spent the rest of their life on a sour note, regretting being born and breed in Malaysia. Oh by the way, If you had lived in some countries that had spent 50 years with an utterly corrupt govt, I doubt you had time to blogged. You'll be busy scouring the street to find food for the family....

for the first time, i don't really care about candidates in a by-election. Neither Zaid nor Kamalanathan impressed me (okay, I'm not HS voter, what the heck).
I just hope Zaid wins solely on the basis that he's against BN... but I would support rock or tree that goes against BN

Why must the voters give Barisan Nasional more time? We have already given them 53 years. And it looks like even after 53 years they have still not learned their lesson and have not discarded their bad habits. In short, Barisan Nasional has not changed its ways one bit. It is still the same old Barisan Nasional that we knew before the 8 March 2008 Tsunami.

Look at how they are conducting the Hulu Selangor by-election. 13,000 voters have been move around. Some have even been moved out and can no longer vote in Hulu Selangor. Why the need to fiddle with the electoral roll and get rid of 13,000 voters? And we know that these 13,000 voters are from polling stations where the opposition is strong.

Come Sunday, many voters will be coming out to vote and will discover that they can no longer vote where they had been voting for the last many elections. Some will find that they are no longer Hulu Selangor voters. Those who are smart enough to find out where their new voting areas are will be lucky enough to vote. But those who are no longer registered to vote in Hulu Selangor will have to go home disappointed.

The best quote in the article:

This is a soul searching message..but the power of advertising and promotional campaigns ...shutting off all competitors...do contribute to weak minds doping what they do not know what they are doing.
This reminds me..Jesus famous last words..."Father forgive them...for they know not what they do"
Weak minds are caused by less educations and wanting easy lifestyles...which UMNO BARU have made thousands..to be like so...depending on the government..for a job..no sacking...do nothing...all OK......as long as you are loyal to UMNO.
The selfishness of the thousands of Chinese towkays...senior clerks...did not make things easy for Freedom to materialized. They do not care who the PM is..but as long as the can live in peace and harmony. MCA and Gerakan contributed to this kind of mentalities...to the delights of Mahathir and Najib now.
MIC...Indians are unreliable and still going through a process to change. However Balan's death with Bala on the run..makes them think more than ever.
Until more Muslims wake up and the Chinese should sit up and have principles in life..and start voting 100% against UMNO....the power of minds control by UMNO BARU...still working...but on the sliding side...showing failures by them...year by year.
Lets see how Hulu Selangor Muslins voters mentalities be like.
I am confident...PR will win big.
Yes People's Power must be guided by all Malaysian Chinese..to throw BN out completely...and they need to tell all their Muslim friends to help and do that too.
But in the natural way of life in Malaysia....Malays who are working for International companies and profit making private ones...know quite well....UMNO is a corrupted.. bullshit good for nothing racist party..stealing their money and using that to b buy them up.
UMNO BARU is making suckers out of Malays...twice over. Many know that...and it argurs well for their Malaysia's future.
