Racist Mahathir? MAHATHIR’S OWN DILEMMA.

Dr M is anti Chinese, Pure and Simple

*MAHATHIR’S OWN DILEMMA*
by Dato Din Merican
MAHATHIR IS OFTEN PORTRAYED NOWADAYS AS AN “ARSEHOLE” WHO DESTROYED THE UNITY OF MALAYSIANS SO THAT HE COULD PIT ONE RACE AGAINST THE OTHER AND REMAIN IN POWER TO ENABLE HIM AND HIS CRONIES TO PLUNDER THE WEALTH OF THE NATION.
AND THE SAD THING IS HE HAS NOT STOPPED DOING IT EVEN WHEN NEARING
HIS MISERABLE DEATH-BED.PITTING THE MALAYS AGAINST THE NON MALAYS HELPS KEEP UMNO-BN IN POWER AND IT’S A SUCCESSFUL STRATEGY AT THE EXPENSE OF MALAYSIA’S VIABILITY AS A SUSTAINABLE NATION-STATE.

THIS MAMAK ARSEHOLE IS THE NEMESIS OF THE NATION AND THE DEVIL INCARNATE HIMSELF!  WHEN WILL HE GO, ONLY THE DEVIL KNOWS! SO GOD HELP US…
Dr. Mahathir has yet to deal with the ghosts of his past deeds. Here no one can help him but he himself.
This is indeed tragic for a once formidable leader of our country who is advancing in years (born in 1925). He just cannot let go and now he has taken upon himself the task of interpreting Malaysian history.
It is not a Malay Dilemma or a Chinese Dilemma.
It is solely Mahathir’s own dilemma.
A half-breed Indian Mamak who cannot accept his original roots but must portray himself to the world that he’s more Malay than the Malay themselves.
It is telling on his self inferiority complex. And in the process he is destroying Malaysia’s multiracial harmony and national cohesiveness.
* He is unwilling to come to terms with himself. Just because a Chinese taxi driver dropped him off at the labourer’s quarters instead of the main residence proper while he was a medical student in 50′s Singapore, The insult was long lasting in his mind.
 His anti-Chinese feelings are not to be easily erased.  After 57 years of UMNO and government handouts, he may be right after all that the Chinese look down on the Malays as fit to be beggars and labourers.
*Let us admit this.
The Chinese community contributed enormously to the growth and the development of our country over the centuries even *BEFORE* the British arrived as colonialists
.Instead of giving them due credit for their hard work and sacrifices, UMNO is erasing their roles in the history books.UMNO is abusing them as a
national punching bag – scapegoats and bogeymen – for its own failures to uplift the living and educational standards of the Malays
.(a) The Chinese know what they want and are willing to put up with obstacles and hindrances in their way to get ahead. The Chinese will remain a resilient and viable race no matter what shit is thrown at them or put in their way.
(b)Their work ethic is the envy of all Malaysians.
(c) Their business acumen is second to none. Even the Chinese diaspora throughout southeast Asia, mainland China, Hongkong, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan knows that. Practically every Chinaman in every Chinatown throughout the globe know what the Chinese in Malaysia is capable of. It has earned them their bragging rights.
(d) They are investing heavily in the education and future prospects of their young. Their next generation.

(e) They continue to improvise and modernize their companies and business strategies for opportunities abroad, since they cannot get contracts in our country on their own merit, and must, therefore, be sub-contractors to favored UMNO cronies cum businessmen.
*Imagine a pencil that cost 50 sen is “direct-negotiated” to cost RM5.00 a piece where the UMNO middleman sapu-ed the profit of RM4.50 (if that’s not greed, corruption and abuse of power, what is?)
Taxpayer’s monies are squandered away needlessly like that and it’s normal practice.
*(e) At home, they (the Chinese) expect a government which is transparent and accountable, NOT a corrupt and abusive one.
In the last election, THEY VOTED AGAINST UMNO-LED BARISAN NASIONAL FOR THIS REASON.Are the Chinese after political power?
I have Chinese friends – and Indian friends too –  with whom I discuss issues (corruption, abuse of power, discrimination, good governance, race relations, and so on).
From them I get the sense that  –
1. THEY ARE QUITE HAPPY TO HAVE A MALAY PRIME MINISTER AND A MALAY DOMINATED GOVERNMENT. THEY HAVE NO QUARREL WITH ISLAM AS THE STATE
RELIGION.
( DR.M & MOST OF THE SENSIBLE MALAYS KNOW VERY WELL THAT THE NON-MALAYS ARE NO REAL THREAT TO MALAY POLITICAL DOMINATION BY SIMPLE DEMOGRAPHY) That is a given.2, They respect our King and his brother rulers.
*The Chinese are actually the No 1 suckers for all the crappy awards and medals thrown out at every donkey sultan’s birthday party. They will even pawn their mistress’ underwear to purchase such honorific titles and awards. Pieces of shitty metal.
It is not shocking to hear some Chinese towkay pay RM300,000 to secure a VVVIP datukship.
*3) But at issue to the Chinese (and me too) is what kind of Malay leadership we should have for Malaysia.
They HATE the present bunch of Malay racist leaders who use Islam to play divide and rule among the people.
THE CHINESE WANT ENLIGHTENED AND PROGRESSIVE MALAY LEADERS WHO WILL NOT USE RACE AND RELIGION FOR THEIR OWN POLITICAL ENDS. (ALL PATRIOTIC MALAYSIANS SHARE THE SAME COMMON GOOD VALUES; LESS CORRUPTION, LESS WASTAGES & GREATER EFFICIENCY & BETTER GOVERNANCE SO THAT OUR BELOVED & BLESSED MALAYSIA CAN BE COMPETITIVE & BE HAPPY, PEACEFUL &PROSPEROUS)
4. They feel that anti Chinese bashing after GE-13 should stop.
5They want to be respected as Malaysians with equal rights guaranteed by the Federal Constitution, not as pendatangs, to have some say in the affairs of state in so far as those policies affect their welfare and interests, and they want to contribute to the future development of Malaysia.I am sure that, like me,
THEY ARE DISAPPOINTED WITH A FORMER PRIME MINISTER (THE MAMAK DEVIL) WHO HAS ABANDONED HIS BANGSA MALAYSIA VISION in order to further HIS INTEREST IN SEEING A KETUANAN MELAYU 1MALAY MALAYSIA.
I will have none of this.Just give me a Malaysia for all citizens, irrespective of race, creed, color and religion so that together we can face the challenges of a 21st century world.
Note: Whoever is responsible for the views expressed in the article above ,  it will be fairly accurate to  ascertain that he/she  resents Tun  Mahathir with a totally irreverent fervour and definitely  is not written by Dato Din Merican ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..Facebook-K and DNOTE: I never wrote this  anywhere and not on my own blog. I have disagreed with the politics of Tun Dr. Mahathir; that is true. But I never expressed my views in this kind of language. I have too much respect for someone who was my hometown hero and my Prime Minister for 22 years of my life to resort to this approach. The person who wrote this has no guts to use his own name and instead chose to use mine. I am grateful to Tan Sri Ramon Navaratnam for bringing it to my attention.–Din Merican.

Well, Dato, for what you ostensibly did not write , it sure turned out to be an intriguing read, the palpable anger and resentment and frustration in the words can be sensed.. Cant help but noticed that If the points raised were not so crudely eloquent but suppose in the hands of a more articulately skilled and polite writer, all that is needed is rewording the article to a more subtle and polite expression but nonetheless retain the sense of resentment or anger but not change a thing in the points raised ..it pretty much sums up what a large proportion of Malaysians really do feel.

.Personally, although i do not subscribe to some of the views expressed in the article but begrudgingly it has validity on the other opinions raised..I just wonder for what reason ,of all other more infamous bloggers,some who actually can write as crude as the article, your name was selected..
Guess to think that you are capable of crudeness like that bordering on vulgarity , that is the very insult ! Yet the writer,although it requires quite a level of intelligence to pen down the views expressed , yet he insults his own intelligence and exhibits stupidity by choosing to use your name..
But i doubt you will lose any sleep over it, or it will tarnish your good name in any way. Anyone acquainted with how you write to express knows instantly, it cannot be your penmanship..

DinobeanoNo Dilemma, Dr Mahathir, just the need for a Better Malaysia

 

Dr. Mahathir has yet to deal with the ghosts of his past deeds. Here noone can help him but he himself. This is indeed tragic for a once formidable leader of our country who is advancing in years (born in 1925). He just cannot let go and now he has taken upon himself the task of interpreting history. It is not Malay or Chinese Dilemma. It is Dr Mahathir’s. He is unwilling to come to terms with himself.

Let us admit this. The Chinese community contributed enormously to the growth and the development of our country over centuries. In stead of giving them due credit for their hard work and sacrifices, UMNO has used them as punching bag for its failure to uplift the living and educational standards of the Malays.

The Chinese know what they want and are willing to put up with obstacles and hindrances in their way to get ahead. Their work ethic is the envy of all Malaysians. They are investing heavily in the education of their young. They continue to modernise their companies for opportunities abroad, since they cannot get contracts in our country on their own merit, and must, therefore, be sub-contractors to favoured UMNO businessmen. At home, they expect a government which is transparent and accountable, not a corrupt one. In the last election, they voted against UMNO-led Barisan Nasional for this reason.

Are the Chinese after political power? I have Chinese friends–and Indian friends too– with whom I discuss issues ( corruption, abuse of  power, discrimination, good governance, race relations, and so on) and from them I get the sense that they are quite happy to have a Malay Prime Minister and a Malay dominated government. That is a given. They respect our King and his brother rulers. But at issue to them (and me too) is what kind of Malay leadership we should have for Malaysia.

The Chinese want enlightened and progressive Malay leaders who will not use race and religion for their political ends. They feel that Chinese bashing after GE-13 should stop. They want to be respected as Malaysians with rights guaranteed by the constitution, not as pendatangs, to have some say in the affairs of state in so far as policies affect their interests, and they want to contribute to the future development of Malaysia.

I am sure that, like me, they are disappointed with a former Prime Minister who has abandoned his Bangsa Malaysia vision in order to further his interest in seeing a Malay Malaysia. I will have none of this. Just give me a Malaysia for all citizens, irrespective of race, creed, colour and religion so that together we can face the challenges of a 21st century world, united and focused in the pursuit of excellence.

old age paranoia and senility come hand in hand.The Tun  may be horrified of what he perceives Anwar can do to destroy his self concocted “legacy of grandeur to this country..the so called “father of malaysia’s modernity , vision 2020″ ” and his descendants prospects in this country. .
Maybe he has the fear of ” a Marcos complex”. that a similar fate may befall him like the Marcos regime and how Marcos had to hide his money in exile and as the Phillipines try to recover the plundered loot of billions from him..
If Anwar is PM,, he can do a lot to set the record straight in the annals of Malaysian political/govermental. history., facts/truth of which Malaysian PM was responsible for what and so on etc.,Which PM was a villain/hero ,which PM did more harm than good to the country ,in the context of the Malaysian historical perspective.
