YOURSAY 'Leave the paint on the bus as a living testimony of the immaturity and violence in our midst. And also why we must vote them out.'
PKR bus hit by red paint, again
Truth1: This is clearly the dirty deed of Umno's brainless buffoons. These desperate acts of violence and hooliganism reflect a cowardly party that is truly fearful for its future and wishes to intimidate the people instead of winning them over.
But it won't work. Like the cowards that they are, they will slither away like slimy snakes when good people stand up to them. So, when they lose in GE13, they will realise that violence and intimidation will get them nowhere.
Mubarak: Umno strategy is to get PKR mad and to react. Don't fight fire with fire. Use water instead. Do the unexpected.
Artchan: Leave the paint on the bus as a living testimony of the immaturity and violence in our midst. And also why we must vote their idiotic moronic leaders out.
Moontime: It is now confirmed beyond the shadow of a doubt, there are no more intelligent, smart and rational Umno members anymore.
Judging from the past actions, and now this - I can safely and confidently say this: It is Umno-BN who cannot accept defeat in the next GE. They are the ones who will go on a mindless rampage, damaging properties, threatening and intimidating the public.
I hope that Pakatan Rakyat will take the necessary steps to prevent this from happening with the help from a reformed PDRM (Royal Malaysian Police).
This is what happens when a party is made up of imbeciles, morons and scums of the earth who just can't engage in a meaningful, rational discussion/debate with their opponents. Instead they resort to violence.
Will this win support from the fence sitters? I doubt it very much. The more violence these Umno scums use, the stronger will be the support for Pakatan. PM Najib Razak cannot face the fact that BN will lose big and they will be the opposition after the 13th GE.
Odin: Najib wouldn't say or do anything about this sort of incidents. He knows it is the end of the road for him.
If the BN loses at the GE13, he will be kicked out of the Umno Baru president position; even if it wins, he will nevertheless not be voted for the position and hence will not be the PM.
That is also the reason, the main one, he has kept on postponing the date of the GE13 - he wants to stay as PM for as long as possible. We all know why.
YF: Pakatan should leverage on Umno's gangsterism.
Show the rakyat the violent nature of Umno ‘samseng' (gangsters). Show how the PM and DPM continue to keep quiet while Umno samseng cause hurt and damage. Show to the world that this uncivilised PM and DPM are nothing but Saddam and Gaddafi wannabes.
That when these ruthless regime starts hurting the rakyat then international help is needed to bring Umno to justice and let them feel the violence that they sow. Their many sins will be repaid by God Himself.
Anonymous_3e86: See how Pakatan's bus is splashed with paint, which was witnessed by Pakatan supporters while BN's 'war truck' was ‘painted' without any witnesses. There were no witnesses because it was done by their own people.
And look at how the paint is splashed all over Pakatan's bus while BN's bus was carefully ‘painted' on the bumper?
Pakatan should be recording all events and install car cameras to record evidence of BN's violence. All these acts clearly show how desperate BN is. This is also to intimidate the rakyat to vote for BN. But it will backfire on BN.
Ferdtan: Let's rename the bus as ‘Bas Cat Merah' after it had been hit twice with red paint. Until today, neither the PM nor the IGP (police chief) came out openly to condemn such frequent political violence.
The police are more interested in setting up a special task force to round up youngsters for celebrating over-jubilantly during the Merdeka countdown.
Isana: This is a regime at its tail end of power, struggling to comprehend why they are losing support. Knowing that the end is near, the survival instinct sets in - to survive at any cost; laws and normal human behaviour are push aside.
Violence, hatred and shamelessness will be the recipe from this regime until it is kicked out.
Ong Guan Sin: Why are these people so fearful of a double-decker bus with PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim's picture on it as well as a simple sentence of ‘Jelajah Merdeka Rakyat' and a few party logos?
Not Confused: Of course, it was Umno-BN thugs and hoodlums - just like their private police force, the PDRM. They have no qualms about resorting to violence and intimidation - after all, it's what they have been doing for years against the opposition.
Najib even encouraged them to defend Putrajaya at any cost. What else do you expect? They've lost all credibility and the right to govern Malaysia.
If the PM has any decency left, he would come out with a statement condemning all political violence. But of course, as usual, he is totally silent and therefore we can assume that he condones these actions.
Anonymous #18452573: This is proof for people to see. One cannot help but wonder if this was exactly how May 13 was started. It has always been Umno.
DontPlayGod: Let's see if the PDRM will ‘handcuff' the perpetrators.
