Malaysiakini - Anwar stays mum over Sept 16!
When Dr Syed Husin Ali, the deputy president of PKR, opened the annual congress of the party's Youth and Women’s wings, he said Anwar and Wan Azizah would explain on the abject failure of Anwar’s 916 boast.
I recall also the same Dr Syed Husin informed the press that PKR would take disciplinary action against the Kulim hooligan for behaving like a thug at the last Bar Council forum on interfaith issues.
Yes, like 916 the non-event, nothing happened – PKR pandai cakap ta’serupa bikin.
No 916, still no disciplinary action against the Kulim Thug, no explanation for the 916 non-event which we may safely surmised as pure grade Anwar bullsh*t.
Neither Wan Azizah or hubby offered any explanation at the annual PKR congress.
If you examine PKR’s political promises, chief among which had been the much touted political reforms or reformasi, the rallying call of the anwaristas and PKR supporters, what have we seen of that reformasi?
Not only zilch but in fact the exact opposite.
Firstly and most damaging of all, the so-called Great Reformer boasted of recruiting slimy frogs (political defectors) as his first action after the 08 March 08 general election.
Yes, the first thing he did was to resort to his UMNO-days modus operandi of subverting the ballot box - recall Sabah 1994 where Parin (PBS) went from should-be State CM to State Opposition Leader, thanks to then BN campaign director for Sabah State, DPM Anwar Ibrahim, and his success in breeding frogs.
And straightaway after 08 March 08 he showed his true colours, his harimau stripes, his craze for power (rather than democracy or reforms), by resorting to a shameless insidious attempt at subverting the ballot box.
Reformasi or Deformasi of democracy?
KD Reformasi was torpedoed and sunk by her own captain.
Then the 916 package by his camp – we witnessed their grandstanding boasts after boasts, lie about Muhyiddin Yassin being on the list of defectors, oblique appeals to HM the Agong to intercede, even a so-called professor of law attempting (twice, mind you) to convince us (or HM) that it would be proper for HM to intercede on behalf of a party with 82 MPs to take rein of the government from a party with 140 seats - for more read Don't misuse the King!.
The Deformasi spirit continued with Dr Wan Azizah promising to restore immunity to the royals and 20% petroleum royalties to Sabah and Sarawak.
It’s a wonder the pair didn’t promise Malaysians the sun would rise in the West tomorrow.
Yesterday I lambasted Dr Syed Husin in Dr Syed Husin defending the indefensible! and advised him:
… let that 916 bull rest. If Anwar had f* up his unwarranted (deformasi, not reformasi) boast, let it be. Let that embarassing bull fade away.
Your de facto leader's attempted deformasi subversion of democracy's ballot box had been an abject failure, so why perpetuate the shameless concept of an underhanded seizure of power with your shameless “If the power transfer is not tomorrow, it will be the day after tomorrow"?
Why defend the indefensible? Why don't you wait until 2013 to claim your political victory in a legitimate manner?
I would have respected Anwar Ibrahim more if he did what the Malaysiakini headlines suggested, that is, not offering any explanation for the 916 bullsh*t.
We know he had hoped for a self-fulfilling prophesy but tough luck for Anwar, AAB didn't buy his bluff ... so ... just let the embarrasing bluff fade away and wait democratically for 2013.
But alas, like Dr Syed Husin he had to spoil it by leaving claw marks on the sill with the unnecessary and most pathetic excuse: "Despite all the sabotage and plotting (towards the Sept 16 plan), our desire to bring about a new dawn for Malaysia will never be quashed."
"Despite all the sabotage and plotting (towards the Sept 16 plan), …”?
For a man who had planned (and boasted) to have his 916 through frogs, he has the brazen cheek to accuse others of sabotage and plotting.
But sadly his adoring lemmings believe him. Some even rationalized Anwar's abject failure of 916 had been a brilliant tactic - wakakaka. I've never witnessed such blind idiocy.
As Abrahim Lincoln said: “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.”
Guess who’s still buying the Deformasi bull even today (sigh), and in which group of Lincoln’s fools do they fall under?
