C = Communist? Charlatan? Chinese?
Mahathir, who is now Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) chairperson and an ally of DAP, has had to deflect claims of joining forces with an "anti-Malay" party, the perception which he had engineered while he was prime minister for 22 years until 2003.
"Actually, it was me who demonised the DAP. In politics, if you want to defeat your enemy, you have to sully their image.
"DAP was an enemy of my party and me (at that time). My approach was effective even though they too demonised me.
"As a result from me and my (then) colleagues demonisation of the DAP, Malays were not able to accept DAP or anyone who allied with them," he said in a blog posting today.
Mahathir noted that today, he too was being branded a traitor for working with DAP.
"I would not do so (work with DAP) if DAP was really a demon."
In other words, Mahathir has just said he was slandering, bad-mouthing and bullshitting about the DAP for nearly half a century.
And he has only admitted above because he has been branded a traitor by Malays for working with his own created 'demon'.
If he has not been branded a traitor by Malays, would he have confessed to his evil slandering? Thus his confession carries NIL merit. T'was not sincere nor out of repentance, but rather motivated by his own self-interest.
I wonder who else he has slandered?
Can we trust such a man?
If we consider another aspect of his insincere confession, he remembers his evil act whilst he has forgotten many more, eg. Forex, Project IC, Memali, etc, so he has told us.
Again, can we trust such a man?
