“And once Mahathir is dead, the Emperor will turn Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail into Prime Minister before making Zaid the Menteri Besar of Selangor. Sultan Sharafuddin will have no say by then, considering that Mahathir would have incarcerated rulers to a point that their very existence would no longer have any meaning other than to prevent an out and out war between the Malays and the Chinese. And if you’re thinking all of this is an exaggeration, think again”
THE THIRD FORCE
Here’s introducing to you Emperor Lim Kit Siang, a man who, like most ancient Chinese Emperors, demands that the people of Malaysia accord him prestige greater than all our rulers combined, including the reigning supreme, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. He is a man who believes that the rulers of Malaysia have no say in matters of succession and best sit in palaces with their mouths tightly shut.
And I’m not making this up.
Back in 2014, Emperor Lim told Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah to butt out of Selangor’s political affairs despite the latter doing only what was required of him by the constitution. The Emperor was upset that the ruler did not to recognize Datin Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as a potential candidate for the post of Menteri Besar. Furious, he decreed that the Sultan needed to know his place as the titular head of the state and refrain from sticking his oars in legislative matters.
To date, the Emperor has yet to apologise. It is very unlikely he ever will, considering that the DAP – a party he is the de facto Chief of – does not forbid members from insulting our palaces or rulers. This was affirmed by the Emperor’s own pawn, Tony Pua (a.k. the man with the prostitute’s mouth). On the 8th of December 2017, the pawn declared that Dato’ Zaid Ibrahim was entitled to his opinions even if they were against the ruler of Selangor.
Oh yes, Pua said that – in his own peculiar way, of course.
According to him, what Zaid told Sultan Sharafuddin had no bearing on the DAP as it was his personal opinion and not that of the party. That may help explain why Emperor Lim felt no remorse when members of his party – the Deceive, Agitate and Patronise (DAP) party – referred to UMNO Malays as “Melayu Pukimak,” “Melayu Bodoh” and “Metallic Black.” Given that he feels our rulers need not be revered, there is no reason for him to give two hoots about the feelings of the Malays either.
Yes, you will no longer need to hold our rulers in esteem or bother about Malay privileges should Pakatan Harapan ever wrest control of Putrajaya. The Emperor would likely work towards demolishing the Monarchical Institution, the very institution currently representing both the sensibilities of the Malays and their identity as a race. If the rulers are gone, the Emperor will no longer need to kowtow to the Malays and will place them firmly under his heel. And that is why he allowed Dr Mahathir Mohamad to anoint himself Pakatan’s Top Dog.
Just as ancient Chinese Emperors had ferocious dogs in the palace grounds to intimidate the adversary, Emperor Lim is keeping the Top Dog to amend the Federal Constitution in ways that would reduce the Monarchical Institution to something of a joke. Mahathir is very experienced in this department – back in the eighties and nineties, he skillfully rewrote portions of the Federal Constitution to consolidate his grip of power both in UMNO and government.
Once he’s Prime Minister, you will see more people like Zaid telling rulers to be careful of their words and incarnations of Superman Hew telling Malays to fook off. Emperor Lim does not think this will pose a problem to him. As he claims the throne, he will get Mahathir to do all his dirty work while members of the DAP and PKR infiltrate important ministries to claim control of critical government departments.
And once Mahathir is dead, the Emperor will turn Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail into Prime Minister before making Zaid the Menteri Besar of Selangor. Sultan Sharafuddin will have no say by then, considering that Mahathir would have incarcerated rulers to a point that their very existence would no longer have any meaning other than to prevent an out and out war between the Malays and the Chinese. And if you’re thinking all of this is an exaggeration, think again.
Even as we speak, the former premier refuses to apologise to Sultan Sharafuddin despite the royal rebuke he got from the ruler and the sharp criticism he received from Indonesian vice-president Jusuf Kalla. The people of the palace are pissed that Mahathir referred to the Buginese as pirates, considering that many of them trace their ancestral origins to an Austonesian tribe that settled in Sulawesi sometime around 2500 B.C.E.
Mahathir even referred to Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak – who not many Malaysians are aware is an aristocrat – as a Bugis pirate who somehow got lost at sea and ended up in Malaysia. The former premier’s less than pathetic regard for the Prime Minister stems from his inability to fathom the idea of government being led by aristocrats past his death. If there’s one thing he intends to do before he kicks the bucket, it is to make sure that the next Prime Minister is anyone but a person who has aristocratic blood running through his veins.
Now do you understand why he gets along so well with Emperor Lim Kit Siang?
