I reckon if those leaders don’t want UMNO members to vomit racist scum, all they have to do is to put a firm stop to it, rather than merely cautioned them to be careful, for example like advising those ultra-boasters that their speeches were broadcast on TV.
There is a world of difference in the signals sent out by leaders when they say “Be careful, you’re on TV” against “Stop that, we aren’t going to accept racist talk!”
I reckon, rather sadly, those UMNO leaders may in fact be secretly pleased with a selected number of their members voicing their racist threats from their froth-foaming mouths.
Hasnoor Sidang Hussein said the following (my comments in different light blue highlights, this colour):
The non-Malays have been challenging the Malays more seriously now despite the existence of the social contract and provisions in the federal constitution ensuring the position of Islam, the Orang Asli and the syariah courts.
May we revisit what this 'social contract' is, because it has been repetitively brandished around like a tangkal (amulet) as if it would explain away the injustice and bullsh*t that have been going on; in fact the so-called 'social contract' keeps changing shape, size and sh*t.
As for the orang asli, the group that have marginalised those 'original people' most, further delegating them to the outer fringes of society, have been the government and its policies. The orang asli only interest the government and the opposition PAS as potential candidates for comversion to Islam.
Until today, Umno is still passive, soft, tolerant and defensive. I believe they (non-Malays) will not keep quiet and will continue to challenge the Malays. If the setting up of an interfaith council (IFC) is successful, those non-Muslims who are the enemies of Islam will side with them (those who challenge the Malays).
UMNO passive, soft, tolerant and defensive? Please excuse my toes for laughing. But having sneered at those remarks, I have no doubt that Hasnoor Sidang Hussein was sincere in his views. In July this year I blogged in New Fact on May 13 Revealed! that:
"... it’s a typical (traditional) Malay worldview that one can see in the earlier local movies – namely, the Malays are a very patient forgiving type (Pak Cik Ahmad Daud, dressed up immaculatedly & complete with spotted neck scarf, sitting in an easy arm chair smoking his pipe and pontificating seriously and wisely) and very reluctant to retaliate, while the Chinese have always been portrayed as an avaricious and raucous ethnic community (fat Chinaman sweating in singlet wheeling and dealing with a dodgy Chinese weight measuring tool) and the Indians as unreliable or at best, court jesters ..."
Why should Malays and Umno be passive and defensive? It’s time to raise our voices and defend the Malays and Islam. Umno is willing to risk lives and bathe in blood in defence of race and religion. Don’t play with fire. If they mess with our rights, we will mess with theirs.
Yes, we know UMNO has done it before - see my January posting The Real Cause of the May 13 Riots.
Umno faces challenges from DAP who are Chinese chauvinists, the ignorant PAS and threats from overseas. Friends in Barisan Nasional, too, have questioned us. That’s why the Malays must unite under Pak Lah’s leadership to defend race and religion.
Yeap, the predictable bangsa dan agama again. Stand strong against those bloody Chinese chauvunists like Karpal Singh.
I know it’s the usual UMNO general assembly’s racist talk, but after nearly half a century of independence and thus cartloads and cartloads of such stinking bovine poo, I am fairly sick of these routine UMNO bigoted ravings - mind you, this year they gave the poor tebuans (hornets) a rest. But then hey, we had Hishamuddin Tun Hussein waving his keris again yesterday.
