Umno might call me 'He-man' next, predicts Kit Siang
DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang has been called many things by his critics and he is now pondering what will come next after "dictator".
He said that in the past, the list included "devil, a puaka (evil spirit), even jembalang (poltergeist), anti-Malay, and anti-Islam", but this didn't really work on the intended audience.
"Now, the Umno propaganda campaign is trying a different tact - accusing me of being a dictator who made others in the DAP as well as Pakatan Harapan, including Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Anwar Ibrahim, Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Muhyiddin Yassin, Azmin Ali, Mohamad Sabu and Husam Musa, into my stooges and puppets.
"At this rate, the next phase for the Umno 'demonisers' will be to elevate me into a 'master of the universe' with powers to direct foreign governments, like the US, UK, Australia, Switzerland, Singapore and Luxembourg to interfere with Malaysia's internal affairs and institute actions against 1MDB to 'topple' Najib and Umno," said Lim in a statement today.
