Najib knows nothing about being non-racist
YOURSAY 'Najib says the most silly things - if Umno is not racist, why support Perkasa and take no action on Ibrahim Ali's racist statements?'
Sarajun Hoda: Umno is indeed a racist party. First it is based on one race. Second, it practices a racist agenda by pointing the keris at others.
Thirdly, if it was not racist, they would not have forced its founder Onn Jaafar to leave and form a multiracial party instead. Fourthly, it imposes its racist policies over others including its coalition partners, also mostly racist parties.
Fifth, promoting ‘ketuanan Melayu', trying to engage PAS in secret talks to advance its racist agenda is yet another proof. Sixth, giving its running dog, Perkasa, complete impunity to vomit what is otherwise Umno's own racist ideology, is a loud and clear sign.
The fielding of infamous racist frogs, Ibrahim Ali and Zulkifli Noordin, as Umno candidates in GE13 is the clearest of all. Umno is racist to its core and Najib cannot fool Malaysians by lying and lying, and lying further.
Kokkeong: If it is true that Umno is not racist, then how come the first to come out of your mouth after the election results did not please you was a patently racist remark?
Worse yet, who spewed the nonsense defending Utusan Malaysia's racism? During the election campaign, the only action you displayed when appealing to non-Malays was cash, free meals, or promising to upgrade Chinese schools. There was nothing as far as communicating with non-Malays as equals.
You were not interested in what non-Malays think, their heart and soul. You were only interested in buying them off to shut them up. How insulting was that.
Pemerhati: This is a typical lying fork-tongued Umno politician.
When it suits him he will talk of the keris and Chinese blood, get his gutter press like Utusan to make false racist accusations against the Chinese and come out with inflammatory statements like ‘what more do the Chinese want', get his Perkasa racist goons and other thugs to try and cause racial and religious tension by making a big issue over the word ‘Allah' or get some lackeys to drag a cow's head in public.
Now this illegal and illegitimate PM whose party has been rejected by the majority of Malaysians pretends to be a nice guy by coming out with hypocritical and blatantly false statements like, "Umno is not a racist party because it has always given justice to the people regardless of their race."
It is almost certain that investigations will soon reveal that Umno won the elections through fraud. What the majority of Malaysians want to know is how to get rid of these Umno crooks if the investigations indeed do reveal there is massive fraud.
2LAN Slogans and more slogans do not erase the fact that Umno is racist because it owns the most racist newspapers in Malaysia and it sponsors the most racist NGO in Perkasa.
Is Umno open to other races? Prime Minister Najib Razak, please grow up and wise up because the public already has.
Xena: Najib, why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
Chks: Please don't forget that MCA, through The Star , advertised full-page messages such as ‘one vote for DAP is one vote for PAS'. So what if we give one vote for PAS? What's wrong with PAS? Is it because their members are Muslim/Malay?
Utusan has been sending racist messages on behalf of Umno, The Star has been sending racist messages on behalf of MCA - these are the main reasons for your downfall, Najib. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out.
Why is BN so bigoted? Already the election results is an obvious message to all, but they still cannot see it.
Amateur: Najib, start the ‘muhasabah' with yourself first. You are still in denial. If Umno is not racist, why must your leaders consistently stress on race, religion and royalty (meaning race is your top priority). Thus, please do not insult our intelligence.
Amalgam: Najib says the most silly things - if Umno is not racist, why support Perkasa and take no action on Ibrahim Ali's racist statements?
Pray tell, why field Perkasa vice-president Zulkifli Noordin as a candidate in Shah Alam, and why show the ‘Tanda Putera' film behind closed doors and only to Malays?
If you claim Umno is not racist, prove this to us - tell former PM Dr Mahathir Mohamad to stop interfering with Umno and stay out of the country's governance.
Zen: As always, the Malays will lose their political as well as economic power by following the scheming policies of racist parties that will eventually weaken them without them even knowing it.
So until some of these Malays realise that they have been conned, they will keep losing whatever advantages that they have.
The old Malay saying is apt, "Menang sorak kampung tergadai" (You may win at shouting but you lose your village).
