Our PM Najib said some incredible things today. He said that
The Bersih 3.0 rally was an attempt to topple the government which was elected by the people through a democratic system. (read here)
This is a sign of desperation not knowing how to react to a mega turnout of over 200,000 Malaysians who came in support of Bersih 3.0 DUDUK BANTAH at Dataran Merdeka.
If he had taken the time to read what Bersih 3.0 stood for and saw for himself who actually came to protest, he will be floored completely and he will realise how silly and foolish his statements sound. It is a total INSULT to all the Malaysians who turned out as well as all those who supported in similar Bersih 3.0 protests in over 70 cities around the world. There are millions more Malaysians who weren’t able to join on that day for various reasons.
Mr PM Najib. Did you know there were those who came in their wheelchairs, their crutches, their walking sticks, the elderly, the men and women who wanted a clean and fair election besides the incredible turnout of the younger generation? People from all races came from all over the country to support the Bersih 3.0 demands.
Mr PM Najib. None of these harbored any interest to make this protest as one against the Government unless the Government feels that demanding a clean and fair election is against the interest of the Government. If you argue from this angle, perhaps you are feeling rather perplexed why Malaysians are against you. That is not the intent of Bersih 3.0. But if you choose to see things this way, all we can say is that you are deluding yourself and your advisors are good for nothing. They may inadvertently cause your downfall.
Even the political party members who came out did not cry for the toppling of BN. They are all of one accord crying out BERSIH! BERSIH! and singing NEGARA KU with everyone in the most patriotic spirit.
Mr PM Najib. You should ask why the Police ATTACKED the people, treating them as animals, beating them up, chasing them across the city way beyond Dataran Merdeka. Why was there no interest to catch those whom the Police deemed to have broken the law, if indeed the law was broken or was it just the police barricades that were breached, the moment they were in the very act? Why was there specific interest to shoot all their tear gas stockpile and spray chemical-laced water claiming that’s the least harmful approach? Why don’t we spray the Cabinet after your meeting on Wednesday to experience what our datuks and neneks who were sprayed on that fateful day you blocked them from stepping on the patch of grass?
Nothing can be futher from the truth of what you claimed about Bersih 3.0 and it is unbelievable that you can say such things of PEACEFUL MALAYSIANS who came that day. They weren’t armed to even to defend themselves yet they were treated like terrorists and chased around town like animals.
Where is the heart of your Government? Where is the empathy to understand your people? Or are those who demand for a clean and fair election no longer your people? Are you the PM of Umno and BN supporters only?
Your words and actions seem to say just that! Or did we misunderstand you yet again?
