Malaysiakini - 'Act on opposition leaders who disrespect Malay rulers'
Hmmm, as I wrote in my post Resurrection of Communism, by UMNO? last year:
UMNO’s clarion call used to be ‘agama, bangsa dan Negara’. It has used this to arouse patriotic rallying to its banner.
Then at some stage, it decided to add ‘raja’ and kicked ‘Negara’ out.
‘Raja’ to Malays is a far more emotional word than ‘Negara’, inspiring fealty and readiness to defend their liege lord a la Hang Tuah against the Hang Jebats, which today are mainly party members of PAS, and their Chinese-Indian allies in DAP.
It’s also easier to accuse the nons, especially Chinese, of being biadap to the rulers.
Never mind that on 10 December 1992, Dr Affifuddin Omar, an UMNO man from Padang Terap, no doubt given the imprimatur by his party leaders, asked in Parliament:
"How can we continue to uphold rulers who are known to be robbers, adulterers, drunkards and kaki pukul (thugs)?" [...]
"They (the rulers) must be made to realize that they do not own this country. They are not Superman but placed on their thrones by the people. "The real power did not lie with them, but with us - the representatives of the people."
Which ‘non’ could have said that and got away? None! Only UMNO and UMNO alone could have gotten away with its abuse of the raja whom they claim to defend today.
Francis Bacon once said: “The zeal which begins with hypocrisy must conclude in treachery; at first it deceives, at last it betrays”, but obviously Boleh-UMNO has innovatively done it the other way around, that was, betrayed first then deceived.
