Today, FMT published another reminder on how the 1Malaysia rallying theme by PM Najib has been publicly opposed by DPM Muhyiddin to everybody’s horror.
Two years ago Muhyiddin stunned Malaysians when he claimed that he was a Malay first and then Malaysian.
Why should the people be in favour of BN as the ruling government when its leaders are doing all they can to perpetuate an agenda that only serves to discriminate and segregate Malaysians of different faiths?
BN keeps claiming that Pakatan’s ally DAP is racist. But then has BN not the slightest decency to acknowledge the fact that it is Umno which takes the cake when it comes to raising racial tensions.
The racist remarks made during the annual Umno general assembly is a classic example of the miscreant nature of this ‘all Malay’ party. What is unbearable is the fact that the racist remarks made via the Umno general assembly platform have always the backing of top leadership.
And it is even more painful to have a prime minister who cares a hoot about having a racist deputy.
In July last year, Najib when asked by a student at the Malaysian Student Leaders Summit to comment about Muhyiddin’s ‘Malay first, Malaysian second’ remark gave the most ridiculous of replies when he said:
“I don’t want to respond in any way that will divide me from my deputy. 1Malaysia is our guiding philosophy. It does not matter what you say, just as long as you follow (the 1Malaysia concept).”
Going by Najib’s tacky reply, do we need any more reasons to show BN the door in the coming 13th general election? (read here).
Follow the 1Malaysia concept your own way and we are all abiding by 1Malaysia. Instead of unity in diversity, 1Malaysia will become the disunity in confusion. Najib says you can behave what you feel is your version of 1Malaysia. Hence, DPM Muhyiddin feels that his 1Malaysia is Malay first and that is totally coherent with Najib’s 1Malaysia.
This is how our country is ruled. First, give out themes that you allow everyone to decipher what it means to them. Then, hope for the best that the goal of unity is gained. If it does, then Najib is a genius. If not, the people have totally misunderstood and misinterpreted it. If all we get is sheer baloney and crap politics, it is no wonder Malaysia is in the state we are in today.
