Najib is not a pirate but Mahathir is a kleptocrat

And to see people like Lim Kit Siang and those other DAP Chinese clapping and cheering and urging Mahathir on does not give a very good impression of the quality of their morals, ethics, honour and dignity. They are acting just like that Chinese triad leader, Yap Ah Loy, an opium den operator and pimp who imported prostitutes from China, who was appointed Kapitan China by one member of the  Selangor Royal Family and then quickly changed sides when the other side won the civil war.

THE CORRIDORS OF POWER

“During the rally, Mahathir said ‘maybe he can trace his ancestry to Bugis pirates. Somehow, he lost his way and came to Malaysia. Go home to Bugis (Sulawesi)!’ And the hypocritical Pakatan crowd cheered,” said LSS.

Yes, this is the same Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who said he does not need Chinese votes to win the general election and then lost his Kota Setar Selatan seat to one-time PAS President Yusof Rawa because the Chinese would rather vote for PAS than for Mahathir.

As LSS said, ‘the hypocritical Pakatan crowd cheered’ when Mahathir insulted the Bugis by calling them pirates. Of course, when LSS says ‘the hypocritical Pakatan crowd’, in essence he means the largely Chinese crowd…or Chinese DAP crowd.

But then these DAP Chinese love such things. That is why Superman Hew Kuan Yau and Mat Sabu are very popular amongst the DAP Chinese. Superman Hew and Mat Sabu are experts in using foul language and in insulting people. So the DAP Chinese love Superman Hew and Mat Sabu who are as equally crass and uncultured just like them. Malays call them orang takde class.

According to my ‘inside sources’, His Royal Highness the Sultan of Selangor is most upset that Mahathir keeps calling Bugis pirates. Tuanku is very proud of his Bugis ancestry and Mahathir’s continued reference to Bugis as pirates is courting Tuanku’s displeasure.

Pakatan Harapan has made a very powerful enemy in Selangor. So good luck to them if they still win the next general election. I have a feeling Tuanku is going to demonstrate how a ‘Bugis pirate’ handles his enemies when Pakatan needs to form the new Selangor State Government. If Pakatan thinks ‘Bugis pirate’ Sultans from Johor are deadly, wait and see what a ‘Bugis pirate’ Sultan from Selangor is like.

And that is why most Selangor Malays and members of the Selangor Royal Family stand behind Tuanku — because Tuanku is a fighter. All Tuanku has to do is shout ‘defend Selangor’ and watch the civil war erupt. Selangor has seen so many civil wars over the last 200 years since the time of Sultan Abdul Samad that civil wars biasa saja bagi orang Selangor. Was not Selangor also where the last civil war erupted on 13th May 1969?

Yes, jangan main dengan orang Selangor. During one Selangor civil war, Raja Mahadi installed Yap Ah Loy as the new Kapitan China (not the British, as many believe). Soon after that the Sultan’s son-in-law, Tengku Kudin, captured Kelang and Yap Ah Loy did a U-turn and recognised Tengku Kudin’s authority (smart fellow this Yap Ah Loy in the art of cari makan or makan dedak).

Ahmad Faiz Faiza had this to add to the Saturday story.

Mahathir then made more snide remarks especially against Najib, his wife Rosmah, his families and even comparing him to Tun Razak. Its a sad day to see such a statesman have to resort to such ‘below the belt’ tirade against his opponent. It was made worst when he claims such thievery and kleptocracy had never happened before in the country. Surely Lim Kit Siang and Mat Sabu knows better. Of course now it seems they themselves have caught the same ‘selective amnesia’ that plagues Mahathir now and then.

He made a remark regarding the Bugis being pirates, as a reference to Najib’s ancestors. And with Selangor and Johor having the largest Bugis population among the Muslims, one wonders whether Mahathir has thrown in the towel and decided to give these two states, especially Selangor, back to BN or to PAS. The cheers from the mainly Chinese crowds when Mahathir made such statements only made some online Muslim viewers to view them not only as racists, anti-Malays, anti-Islam, etc., but also anti-Monarchy, for the Selangor Sultan is of Bugis descent.

Can PH really win Putrajaya? I don’t think so. In fact, PH may be hard pressed in retaining Selangor. Especially when you call Bugis, whom are the majority Muslims and Malays in Selangor, even the Sultan of Selangor are Bugis, as pirates. Imagine calling all Chinese as triads, opium dealers and prostitutes. Or all Indians as estate workers.

It is ironical that the theme of Saturday’s rally was kleptocracy. Mahathir is listed as the second-biggest kleptocrat after Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, and higher than Suharto of Indonesia and Marcos of Philippines. Mahathir must feel no shame standing on stage screaming about how the country has been robbed when he and Tun Daim Zainuddin robbed the Malaysian taxpayers of RM160 billion and parked them in more than 50 banks all over the world.

And to see people like Lim Kit Siang and those other DAP Chinese clapping and cheering and urging Mahathir on does not give a very good impression of the quality of their morals, ethics, honour and dignity. They are acting just like that Chinese triad leader, Yap Ah Loy, an opium den operator and pimp who imported prostitutes from China, who was appointed Kapitan China by one member of the  Selangor Royal Family and then quickly changed sides when the other side won the civil war.
