Abstract & Comments.
From Monday till yesterday, most party delegates who took to the rostrum made it known publicly that the Malays would no more tolerate any form of threats.
How did "they" define threat? Have they been threatened? In what way? Or, put it in another way, Weren't they been threatening the "Us"?
It was a strong message: Don't test us or else...
What does this mean? Trying to threaten? Or, should it be taken to mean, let the "They" be corrupt, steal, rob and take everything and anything as they so wish, in accordance with their crave, their greed; don't voice up if you see or hear, for "They" were semi-god and the "Untouchables", and only "They" can be above the Law.
They blamed the Chinese community for 'taking more than what they needed." What did they take? They paid you handsomely and made you rich when you sold them projects and they paid upfront money. Is that what is taking? They paid.... you millions and you are so rich now; of course you had also squandered it off. Why blame others in this instance?
What did the Chinese take from them? All projects by the govt, all of them, are only awarded to Bumiputera contractors, except private financed initiatives. All Class F contractors are Bumiputeras, none, absolutely none are for other races. So, what was taken from them? 90% of govt servant are Bumis, 99.9999% of Mara students are Malays. 90% of the banks are Malays (if we exclude foreigners). GLCs are 100% controlled by Bumiputeras (and they claimed it should not be added to the % of Bumi holdings as it's owned by govt; yet they do what they like with it on the presumption ownership).
Hasnoor Sidang Hussein: "Datuk Hishamuddin has unsheathed his keris, waved his keris, kissed his keris. We want to ask Datuk Hisham when he is going to use it?"
Will it drive a wedge between Malays and non-Malays? The answer is YES (Commented Wan Hamidi Hamid).
Political analyst Amir Sari believes that UMNO delegates' anger towards non-Malays could help obscure Chinese organizations gain some prominence and push some Chinese chauvinists to the fore.
Datuk Reezal Merican Naina Merican said: 80% of govt contracts went to non-bumiputeras.
How? How can?
The only possibility is the fact that the Bumis wanted quick profit and sold their stakes to others. Then why blame the others who paid cash upfront? They got the project, sold it for quick profits and yet posed the issue that they no more owned the projects (of course the money is gone). Its not possible to have the cake and eat it. You have taken the money, spent it, bought luxury cars, married many wives, spent your honeymoon and holidays in Europe and US, and now, after the money is taken and wiped out, you said, the others owned your stake?
But, Pak Lah, their president still say:
Dear Prime Minister, are you sure UMNO and MCA are still good friends?
The Chinese are no more friends with MCA. MCA had betrayed them.
How is it that after being threatened, you still call them friends? Would the Chinese still consider UMNO as friends? Maybe, MCA, but not the Chinese. How is it that after being robbed, they could still be friends? How is it that after being threatened by the poser of the Keris: "when are they going to use it" (UMNO members asked Hishamuddin). It suggest a real criminal threat - in criminal law, it's criminal intimidation -yet in UMNO, it's considered their right to do so; if spoken in other functions by other political parties, UMNO may consider burning down the Selangor Chinese Assembly hall again.
Friends? Would you bed someone who may wield the Keris when you bed with him/her?
Even Khairy never consider him as friend - the writer of the book Hikayat Khairy - from Putera Oxford to Putrajaya.
Khairy said: "It is an attempt to smear my reputation. At the same time I feel flattered that someone is willing to spend so much time and money fantasizing and speculating about what I do. This shows that someone is obsessed with me."
Did Khairy showed his friendliness with the writer?
The writer is a Malay or Bumi. Who was the enemy?
