Over the last couple of days, malaysiakini readers have been lambasting Science, Technology and Innovations Minister Jamaludin Jarjis for his alleged racist comments.
Unbelievably (or perhaps not) the minister made crude remarks that insulted a Malaysian on the basis of the colour of her skin. Because she was dark, he opined she was of an 'inferior' caste or status.
One cannot but help wonder how in 2007, there is such a bigoted minister* or rather monster who dared make crude idiotic comments in a gathering.
* mind you, we have more than a few of these
Is he a reincarnated white supremacist Afrikaan (punished by his own karma to relive his useless life in a non-white skin?) or a member of medieval Brahmin priestly caste, or more likely, a retarded hatchling from a slug?
But the most disappointing thing has been the lack of response from the PM.
In another democratic society, such a bigoted moronic minister would have been made to resign. Though, I have to admit that not too long ago, the Israeli ambassador to Australia was reported by an Israeli newspaper, Ha’aretz, as having made equally racist remarks about Asians. But then he’s an Israeli while this minister is supposed to be a minister for Malaysians, well, for some anyway.
But there is a disturbing consistency in AAB’s silence when it comes to UMNO ministers or MPs openly violating norms of propriety or decency.
Remember Polyphemus, that one-eyed Cyclops in the House of Monkeys?
Please read Monkey business in big Monkey House!
That shameless clown even made crude sexist language against a DAP lady MP (asking her whether she like it ‘hard’ or ‘soft’), and that was in Parliament, so don’t blame me for referring to that so-called hallowed hall as a House of Monkeys - with apologies to some inmate exceptions.
Why is AAB tolerating such slimy rednecks who would be better placed among society’s lowlife? Are they such powerful king makers who can’t and mustn’t be touched? Will reprimanding them imperil in any way the image of UMNO to the Malays as the last bastion of Ketuanan Melayu? Or, is it that AAB doesn't care about decent values in Malaysian society. On the basis of those alleged racist remarks, Jamaludin Jarjis certainly doesn't belong in a civilised society.
The even more annoying thing is these two morons weren’t even asserting their claims of Ketuanan Melayu, but making utterly unacceptable thoughtless and insensitive remarks. How can such … things … be MPs and one a minister?
It beggars belief. But then, this is Malaysia Boleh!
