You see what I mean when the authorities wants to nail down someone (especially opposition leaders). They will insinuate language of threat to the person concern. This was what Home Minister Hishamuddin Hussein did in the case of Mat Sabu for the alleged remarks the latter made by referring to the communist that attacked the Bukit Kepong police station in 1950 as heroes (The Malaysian Insider, Sept 11, 2011), or did Mat Sabu referred them as freedom fighters?
This clearly reflects Hisham’s paranoia of the opposition where anything said by them is deemed a security threat to the country. But somehow, this rule clearly does not apply to the likes of Perkasa boss Ibrahim Ali when he told the Chinese community to stock up food and to remain indoors during the Bersih rally, or Senator Mohd Ezam Md Noh when he threatened to burn Malaysiakini’s office and calling it’s Malay employees to seek employment elsewhere. Both these personalities seem to have a certain immunity to say what they wish, and be rest assured nothing will happen to them.
Hisham, pardon me for saying this to you again………please think hard before you speak. Do not think you are the law yourself, and that you can use the language of threat on anyone you please. I have been listening and watching you talk, and I can say this………..you sound so immature and you lack substance in what you say. I also say that you’re keris yielding act was the most idiotic thing to do, and both your grandfather and father, if they were alive would not have liked what you did. Your grandfather was the person that wanted Malayans regardless of race to be reunited, and your father was a man of peace; incorruptible to the core. But unfortunately you Hisham, you are the reverse of Onn Jaafar and Hussein Onn, the two great Malay leaders that I admire most. I cannot say much of the Malay leaders of today; neither can I say much of you.
Now Hisham, you said that there may be other ‘punitive laws’ that can be thrown at Mat Sabu. Please use it on him, if this is the only way to stop the bickering that has been going on endlessly among politicians, academicians, retired members of the security forces and the general public over the alleged remarks made by Mat Sabu. And don’t you realize now that it is only after the remarks have been made by Mat Sabu that there is wide public acceptance that our national history taught in schools need to be restudied. And are you going to shut up Tun Dr. Mahathir for making such a remark? Try and do it if you dare. Had such a remark come from the likes of Lim Kit Siang or Karpal Singh, you will not hesitate to throw the books at them. And Utusan Malaysia will have a gala day reporting about it.
I wish to say this again, that this thoughtless bickering over Mat Sabu’s remarks that has not simmered for days on end is a total waste of time. I want our leaders to talk about the ‘bread and butter’ issues that has worsened and have made Malaysians much poorer. Try taking RM100 to the market today and see what all you can buy. And try to imagine the sufferings of our rural folks if they cannot afford to buy enough food to feed their families. Stop buying all the luxury staffs that some of our super rich politician wives are so fond doing, like buying expensive hand bags and jewelries. Please stop all this nonsense.
