Boycott?

Malaysia-TodayYou deserve UMNO & BN [extracts]:

Are you really serious about change? Do you really want to see electoral reforms? Are you determined to see an end to abuse of power, corruption, mismanagement, etc? How serious are you? Are you serious enough to boycott businesses and companies of those cronies who finance Umno to ensure that they stay in power?

You may need to seriously consider another course of action. If you think that the Mamaks are the ones who are playing up race and religious issues, in particular in Penang, then boycott all Mamak businesses. If you think that Vincent Tan is one of the biggest Umno running dogs, then boycott all services and businesses associated or linked to Vincent Tan. And so on.

Let’s be clear about one thing: YOU are helping the cronies to get rich. And with this money they are keeping Umno-BN in power. Stop eating fast food (it’s bad for your health anyway). Stop buying lotteries. Stop buying cars and motorcycles from crony companies. Stop banking with crony banks. Stop using communication services from crony companies. Stop flying with crony airlines. And so on.

But many of you are too selfish. You would rather have others do the fighting for you. You would rather not suffer any inconvenience by boycotting every service and business that is linked to the ruling party. This is too much trouble. And because of that Umno and Barisan Nasional will continue to be in power even if you organise Bersih 10.0. 

Boycott has been (and still can be) a very powerful weapon, traditionally used most by Chinese Malaysians, at times for the wrong reasons.

I was told by my uncles that immediately after May 13, many Chinese boycotted the eating of satay and durians. Uncs felt the boycott was for the wrong reason, that in attempting to 'punish back' for racial attacks against Chinese, the Chinese punished many wrong people, mainly innocent traders and hawkers.

Recently we read about calls to boycott a certain brand of bread, again because of racial reason, where it was alleged that one of UMNO's cronies had cornered the flour mill sector and raised price of flour.

However, the most effective and most correct (appropriate) boycott in Malaysian goods had been that of mandarin oranges many years ago, when a certain favoured crony cornered the importation of mandarin oranges from China during the run-up to Chinese New Year (CNY).

Mandarin oranges or kam was/is an essential and vital item during CNY, so one asshole thought, with his connection, he could rake in millions by using (or misusing) his connections to possess the sole right to import the CNY-required citrus fruits. It was to be a institutionalized way to corner the lucrative market.


Naturally, the traditional importers were mightily pissed off by the crony-ized hijacking. It wasn't long before word spread around of the brutal and arrogant monopolization, and virtually every Chinese housewives (and hubbies) boycotted Chinese mandarins for that year, resorting instead to use of American, Australian and even Thai oranges (Sunkist or chiam), and then, just for the symbolic display of kam.

As the CNY approached and zillions of crates of mandarins remained unsold in warehouses, and possibly began to rot away, the wannabe millionaire panicked. He attempted to offload them, initially at reduced price, then when it was still no go, at cost price (a steal), and finally in desperation, at below cost price, but alas, the boycott was total, where wholesalers, retailers, hawkers and buyers were all united in their determination to punish that favoured 'crony' of some powerful person wakakaka.

Only American, Australian and Thai oranges were on sale and purchased.

I was informed that he suffered humongous losses, but I'm sure through our wonderful system, he was eventually compensated, perhaps by some 'friendly' insurance, wakakaka.


RPK's proposed boycott is not directed for racial reasons nor against corruptly institutionalized monopolization but to punish the UMNO-BN political cronies and subscribers to UMNO's war chests.

  4. To boycott, one product must be identified. The question is whether every Malaysian will join the boycott or only one group of people

  5. If Ktee and Buttercup thinks they can make a monkey out of Monsterball,they are sickening fools.
    If Ktee thinks Monsterball has no where to go and will stick only to his blog, he is what Monty described him to be, a piece of shit blog owner,with a character, unbecoming of a man to be respected at all.
    Monty sole purpose is to defend Anwar and if Ktee is applying all sorts of low class stunts to make Monty look like an idiot, he is the most idiotic political blog owner.
    Biggest coward, speak about Malaysians affairs,twisting and turning,3000 miles away, Ktee has not one drop shame in his blood.
    Even Monsterball announcing the BERSIH 3 been deleted shows what Ktemoc is.
    Ktee and Buttercup thinks they can play Monsterball like a yoyo.
    Let this blog be dominated by BN rats and dogs.
    It's not that important, when 13th GE is near.
    Monsterball has said he will stop commenting after 13th GE, and I guess it has to start earlier in this blog owned by a slime-bag that have no principles i life, yet teach others how to behave.
    Monsterball has a heart filled with goodness for country and people;brave and fearless.
    This is the kind BN bastards are always hounding and pounding to make them leave and keep quiet.
    I will leave this blog.
    Supporting it with more comments, is stupid.

  7. A brave and fearless patriot will not resort to trickery and deception to fool people. Only coward and ill-motived thick skinner deceive others and themselves by being imposters.

    These people have hide and facial skin as thick as coffin's plank.

  9. There you go, Monsterball....even you could see how generous this blog owner is generous...the moment you have turned over a new leaf, KT allows you to come back in.

    Sorry about your unemployment status. Your money tree not bearing fruits ? There's some Soup Kitchen operated by some missionary at Chow Kit....give it a try.

    Good boy, Monsterball....if you run out of dettol for that smelly mouth of yours, just holler, OK ? We will send new supply by express. Keep up the good behaviour, good boy.
