NAME CALLING MUST CEASE

A few days ago, Minister in PM's Department Nazri Aziz called Tun Mahathir Mohamed, Tun Hanif Omar and Tan Sri Abu Talib Osman crooks, and nobody in UMNO dares to reprimend Nazri Aziz for the thoughtless act. Now the DPM Muhyiddin Yassin calls Anwar Ibrahim as a 'pengkhianat perjuangan Melayu', and the former refuses to retract the statement he made. And this time around, Mukriz Mahathir have rallied behind Muhyiddin, but not behind his father when Nazri Aziz called Tun Mahathir a crook.

Politicians are strange people who claimed themselves to be leaders, but sadly they seemed to have the mentality of a child. Sorry for saying this, because when I was a child I remembered calling my friends names such as Manan Belacan, Mat Sampul, Kadir Beruang, Ali Ketayap and many others. But as I grew older, I realise that it was wrong on my part to be calling my friends by such names. And I am fortunate that as much that I know of myself, I do not have 'enemies'. And even if I do have enemies, I will not call them by names other than their own.

Muhyiddin is old enough to think for himself, and if he calls Anwar Ibrahim a 'pengkhianat perjuangan Melayu' to popularised himself as a truly Malay champion, he is wrong. Instead, he has made the Malays, especially my generation of Malays angry. He has set a bad precedence, and he will now have to accept what others will call of him later, especially by younger Malays.

My brotherly advice to Muhyiddin is to look back at himself when he was the Menteri Besar of Johore. He should ask himself whether he had done things that had angered the Johore Malays. I am sure he wasn't an angel, and I having served three tours in Johore, and am married to a Johorean lass, I have heard dissenting voices of Muhyiddin when he was the Menteri Besar of Johore. One only need to ask the older folks to know what Muhyiddin had done.

Please stop this name calling, especially to a fellow Malay, regardless of whether one is a political enemy or not. Surely Muhyiddin does not like to be called 'pengkhianat Melayu Johore'.

Nazri Aziz and Muhyiddin can call those people anything they like, and nothing will happen to them because, the caller and the called, they are all rich and powerful, the calling will not effect their livelihood, will not make them poor, will not make them suffer, will not make them lose their jobs and their fortune. In fact it makes them instant celebrities and even more popular and also more notorious. This is the game for the rich and famous, this is the power game, this is their game and they play it by their rules.

They are not afraid of Defamation suit, it's nothing to them because they have the money and most important is that they have the power. Power certainly has turned a normal human being into a superhuman or a monster. Power has turned them into their true colours.

And they are all and were all the government people. Why all this has to happen to this government? The government of UMNO, the government of the Malays, the government of the Muslims? All this attitude, this behaviour, this mentality, have turned them into their alter ego, when in power. And almost all of UMNO are the same like them, climbing to the top with all humbleness to clinch power and then rule and live more like the old "Malay feudals".

If Anwar is a "Pengkhianat" to them, he is a "Pembela" to others. Name calling is no big deal and nobody can stop it because, "one man's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter".

Najib, Mukhyiddin, Nazri, Mukhriz and all UMNO elites are the "roll-out" of the factory UMNO, and so was Anwar!

I like this part when Dato' Arshad said this, "Politicians are strange people who claimed themselves to be leaders, but sadly they seemed to have the mentality of a child".

How very true, and we all, including our young people and our children, are seeing most politicians and leaders of men are behaving like children when confronted with a situation.

To me they are not behaving like children, they are behaving like big boys playing with the big boys' toys. The norm of this UMNO led government is that leaders of men live and die like kings. Nobody wants to live like Nik Aziz. Everbody wants to live like the big boy Nazri Aziz!

And more so, our soldiers too are so used in seeing some military leaders at time, behaving like big boys, playing the big boys' toy of golf most of the time and driving big boys' luxury cars and living in big boys' luxury homes, despite drawing a small boy's salary.

This is when a leader don't think that "great powers come with great responsibility".

It's most unbecoming to see a leader holding a respectable position such as DPM, resorting to a stale political ploy of name calling to discredit an opposition member!

This is the same cheap political tactic of politicians to discredit others, especially the opposition, in a country where the political maturity is much to be desired.

To really prove who is more
"pengkhianat perjuangan Melayu" between Muhyiddin and Anwar Ibrahim, these two guys should stand for election in the same neutral constituency ( may be in Wilayah Kuala Lumpur) in the next General Election. The Rakyats will decide!

The UMNO wallas are the real khianat'S,
why because they feed themselves first, then their immediate family members, next their relatives, then cronies...what is left for other MALAY'S?

So if DSAI is challenging them to wake up and change he is labeled a traitor!
How much has MAYUTING squandered in JOHOR> pak chad knows it, johoreans knows about it, ask the Sultan himself, he knows BEST !

So why back a confirmed pengkhainat?
Are we so blind?

BLIND ME !
