I am glad to see Anwar Ibrahim has dropped his silly pretentious man man lai Asia’s Renaissance bullsh*t to come out fighting as he should have done ages ago.
As I mention in a previous post 3 bowls of rice (extracts only):
Sometimes, through a combination of excessive praises (perhaps of the insincere type) and an enormous conceit, a person may come to believe he is a great man. But even then, that is not as bad as a person who thinks, through such similar persuasions, that he is sophisticated, highly cultured or culturally refined … so on so forth …, because such a person would start to talk in high-faluting language and with abstract themes that the ordinary people in the kampong, villages and the more grubbier side of town won’t be able to understand or appreciate. […]
I reckon our so-called Asia's Renaissance Man, Anwar Ibrahim, has fallen into this hubristic trap.
Once a sweetie [who I adore very much ;-) ] asked me what Anwar meant by ‘Kafkaesque’, wakakaka – that’s Anwar all right!
But I’ve just read in The Malaysian Insider’s Anwar function turns ugly as crowd attacks cops that Anwar said of the police attempt to stop him from speaking at the function, also bringing into focus the stark contrast between the police treatment of Rahim Thamby Chik and him (referring to his overnight arrest on July 16 2008):
“This Rahim is a criminal, a rapist but he is made a leader; they record pornography and they are free to walk. I was arrested and treated like a dog but you let them go free after recording statement.”
Now Anwar, that’s the way to go, as such an appeal to the people to view the double standards of the police would/should find better proletarian purchase. Common folks want their politics simple and straightforward instead of bullsh*t like reformasi, or other equally high falutin rubbish, which mention every time would be a Kafkaesque nonsense to me (and sweetie) wakakaka.
Incidentally, just as a side note, Rahim Thamby Chik is a Tan Sri just like Harussani Zakaria, the latter being the bloke who sent a seditious SMS to Muslims that massive Christian proselytizing of Muslims at a church was happening (a blatant fabrication). The misogynist coward then blamed a woman for the whole sickening affair. See my previous posts:
(1) Perak Mufti unusually meek!
(2) Perak Mufti blamed woman; SIS condemns him!
Subsequent to his seditious bullsh*t, he went from Datuk to Tan Sri, but I've to admit I wasn't surprised.
It would seem that under the BN government all some people need to do to earn a Tan Sri would be to have an 'astonishing act' on their CV.
