No, Dr M, only a third force can save the Malays, not PPBM

TTF: PPBM can never be the defender of the Malays as the party is being run by former UMNO leaders who deliberately ignored the fact that UMNO still exists.

Following is an article published by NST Online complete with responses by TTF (in blue): S

PUTRAJAYA: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) knows what needs to be done to help the Malays and the Bumiputera, says its chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

However, in order to do so, the people have to place their trust in the party.

“What we ask is for them to put their trust in us and be willing to follow measures that will be put into motion by us,” he said in his policy speech at Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia’s (Bersatu) second annual general assembly, held at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre here on Saturday.

Addressing a crowd of more than 1,500 Bersatu delegates from across the country, Dr Mahathir, who is also prime minister, said it is only the Malays who could save themselves.

TTF: Actually, the only resort the Malays have to save themselves is the exact opposite of what Dr Mahahir says.

According to him, the Malays need to put their trust in PPBM, meaning, he feels that they shouldn’t put their trust in any other Malay based party and concentrate their support towards his party.

But what he failed to mention was the years he spent pitting the Malays against themselves by waging unnecessary wars with PAS.

As a matter of fact, it was he who brought PKR into existence by sacking Anwar Ibrahim.

That decision ended up siphoning a quarter of UMNO’s voter bank.

And today, not only is he in alliance with Lim Kit Siang, the man who spent the better half of his life splitting the Malays, he is attempting to destroy UMNO to turn PPBM into UMNO 2.0 (or 3.0, depending on how you choose to look at it).

That itself is causing some PPBM Malays to lose their trust in his party and will result in the split of UMNO Malays into three distinct groups – those who trust Mahathir, those who don’t and those who prefer Anwar Ibrahim to be Prime Minister.

So you see, the only way the Malays can ever save themselves is if they choose to discard their trust in all Malay-based parties and back a brand new entity that’s devoid of political baggage.

This new entity will emerge as the true third force and will end up saving both the rulers and the Malays post GE15.

“We (the Malays) can succeed… We have the capabilities. But unutilised capabilities will not help us become successful,” he said, noting that if one prospers and become successful in all fields, one cannot be suppressed.

TTF: Of course the Malays can succeed.

It is you and Kit Siang who spent decades preventing them from doing so by splitting them into multiple segments.

Bersatu, Dr Mahathir said, was a temporary defender of the Malays because the true defenders would be the Malays themselves.

TTF: PPBM can never be the defender of the Malays as the party is being run by former UMNO leaders who deliberately ignored the fact that UMNO still exists.

Dr Mahathir said the Malays nowadays are confused and have become rudderless.


“Umno is longer in existence. So who and what party can they rely on? If not Bersatu, which other party?” he said, to loud cheers from the crowd.

TTF: UMNO no longer ‘exists’ because you infected it with the “Power, Money and Position (PMP) virus” before working your way to destroy it.

“Perhaps Pas? I have no comment. (They can) choose Pas. But it is not my choice,” he said.

TTF: PAS is an option if your concern is Malay unity. 

Islamic based parties are always about unity, more than any other Malay based party can ever hope to be.

Bersatu, he said, was formed to ensure the security of the Malays by boosting their capabilities.

TTF: You and I know that’s rubbish.

PPBM was formed to destroy UMNO because you, your son and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin did not get what you guys wanted.

“In other words, the Malays have to strive to improve themselves through knowledge and skills. But, they have been left far behind and it is hard for them to play catch up with the other races.

“They believe only their own race can provide them the security and this can be done through politics. This is why there is a need to form a party participated and led by the Malays.

“And, this is why Bersatu was formed as a party for the Malays and the Bumiputera. While we provide them the protection, it will be done without taking away the rights and privileges of the others,” he said.

TTF: I just explained why that is bullshxt.

Dr Mahathir also reminded the delegates on why they had gathered.

“We gather here today not because our constitution requires us to. We are meeting because we want to save the Malays. We meet because we want the Malays to develop. We meet because we want to restore the dignity of our race.”

TTF: No.

You’re gathering delegates to tell them that PPBM needs to be turned into the new UMNO because you need to deregister the existing UMNO for your son’s political survival.

This, said Dr Mahathir, was the reason behind the politics.

“It’s not about wanting to become the prime minister, minister, menteri besar or chief minister. We are in politics so that we no longer have to depend on politics. We are in politics to save and free ourselves through success, as a race which can compete with anyone, so that each one of us can succeed by ourselves without the need for crutches.

“For this noble cause, sacrifice all. The rewards will be appreciated by our children and grandchildren. They will say that were it not for us, they would be left to fend for themselves by the forests, paupers in their own country.”

TTF: Again, I’ve shown you why all this is nothing but crap.

You formed PPBM because your concern was Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, his cronies, his children and his wealth.
