UMNO plays up Malay racism and Chinese hatred campaigns to win election

This sentence summ up everything, the BN Government is antagonistic toward other religions and is engaged in a long-term effort to expand Islam’s primacy in Malaysian society.

More fuel for Malaysia’s fire

By Simon Roughneen

BANGKOK – Recently-released United States diplomatic cables from 2008-2010 shed light on Malaysia’s political scene in the aftermath of a controversial crackdown on an opposition-backed electoral reform demonstration in Kuala Lumpur where over 1,600 people were arrested, including opposition politicians.

On July 9, Malaysia’s police fired teargas and water-cannon at thousands of protesters who defied a ban on the rally, which was organized by Bersih 2.0, a coalition of non-governmental organizations that says it wants changes to how Malaysia stages elections, including the mandatory use of indelible ink to prevent voters from casting multiple ballots.

Prime Minister Najib Razak’s government was widely criticized for its heavy-handed and disproportionate response to what was a peaceful demonstration by civil society groups. Putrajaya alleged the protest was a front for the ambitions of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, who says he was injured during the crackdown and faces the next stage of an unrelated and controversial sodomy trial on August 8.

PM Najib said this at the United Nations a year ago:

“Across all religions we have inadvertently allowed the ugly voices of the periphery to drown out the many voices of reason and common sense. I therefore urge us to embark on building a ‘Global Movement of the Moderates’ from all faiths who are committed to work together to combat and marginalize extremists who have held the world hostage with their bigotry and bias.”

A good example of cakap tak serupa bikin!

Many kiasi Chinese like me “turun padang” on 709 Bersih rally had surprised UMNO thugs that racial card and fear of 513 no longer factors to scare off Chinese.

Leo says:

Because of that those Rela flers are now armed, not forgeting those Umno-friendly Mat Rempits…

Harudin says:

MCA and Umno are both losing their grip on their traditional supporters. Both parties have to realise that the race card does not work anymore.

The re-awakening of the urban electorate to the tainted system of governance will eventually spread to the rural areas.
