Isn't Bersih a watch-sausage for everything under the sun ... and moon?
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 3 — An Umno lawmaker accused today Bersih 2.0 chief Maria Chin Abdullah of betraying the country over the funds her organisation received from US billionaire George Soros.
Kuala Selangor MP Datuk Seri Dr Irmohizam Ibrahim claimed that the polls reform group had a “foreign agenda” and accused it of sacrificing the country by being a lackey of foreigners just to topple the government.
“I hope that the people will not swallow the lies by traitors of the country like this Maria Chin Abdullah,” Irmohizam said in a statement.
Soros’ Open Society Foundations (OSF) issued a statement yesterday insisting that the money it provides to Malaysian civil society is to “support democratic practice”, among others, and not to remove the current government. It also said it’s not currently funding Bersih 2.0 even though it had given the electoral watchdog “small grants” in 2012.
The attacks by Umno leaders against Bersih 2.0 come ahead of the Bersih 5 protest scheduled on November 19.
Nonsense, my dear Datuk Irmohizam Ibrahim, if Maria Chin Abdullah is a traitor to Malaysia, then you must be a patriot, and as Samuel Johnson said "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel" which I sincerely hope you are not, that is, a scoundrel!
Maria Chin might be a bit songsang in her understanding of Bersih's objectives, and indeed she might have re-defined them, but I reject, repudiate and refuse to accept any accusation she's a traitor to Malaysia.
can't remember whether it's 5 or 6 or 7 or 8
I'm konfused liao
She has confused herself from being an election watchdog to 'everything' watchdog, wakakaka, sorry, not watchdog but watch-pretzel or watch-sausage, wakakaka again.
EC can relax for today, Maria is now a human rights rights defender
but no promise for tomorrow
Yes, Maria Chin Abdullah is CONFUSED like what JAKIM, JAIS and JA-whoever have claimed millions of Muslims could and would be easily confused over this and that - bearing in mind Muslims are the most mentally and emotionally fragile and psychologically delicate beings on Earth.
Oh, BTW Maria Chin is a Muslim too ;-). I suppose that explains her easily confused state of mind?
