Yesterday I posted Johor UMNO: 'Bangsa Malaysia unacceptable!' where I expressed concerns over Abdul Ghani Othman’s (Johor UMNO chief) use of racist terms favoured by Nazis and Israelis as in their superior Aryan-race-ideology and Chosen People - same thing!.
Abdul Ghani had rejected the unifying Bangsa Malaysia concept and would only accept it if it is acknowledged that the Malays must be the ‘pivotal race'.
The term ‘pivotal race’ is a threatening insult and an obscenity to non-Malay Malaysians. It is another version of The Chosen People, a racist term we should leave to the Jews.
I wasn't alone in my observation of Abdul Ghani's neo-Judaistic inclination, because Malaysiakini has just reported the outraged response of a BN minister, as follows:
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Bernard Dompok today expressed his concerns over the rejection of the Bangsa Malaysia concept by the Johor Menteri Besar.
“In crafting Vision 2020, serious considerations have been given to the roles for all the races in this country,” said Dompok, who is also Sabah's Upko president, in a statement.
Dompok added that he was also alarmed by the emergence of a new terminology - 'a pivotal race' - arising from Abdul Ghani Othman’s policy speech at the Johor Umno convention on Sunday.
“For a 'super' race to emerge at this stage is an affront to the integrity of the Barisan Nasional as a party and government,” said Dompok.
The Sabah politician said that the unity among the races in the country has been long touted as one of the cornerstones of achieving Vision 2020.
“If accepted this present proposal is tantamount to scraping of one of the nine strategic challenges of Vision 2020. Thus by definition itself, Vision 2020 can never be achieved.”
