Just when we thought Pakatan Harapan couldn’t get any more anti-Malay, Tan Sri Dr Rais Yatim told the Crown Prince of Johor, Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, to join a political party before attempting to comment on politics. According to Free Malaysia Today, not only did Rais say this, he told the Tunku not to insinuate on Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s position as Prime Minister as that position was for the people to decide, not the Palace of Johor.
“Stop making insinuations about wanting the Prime Minister to be changed. That’s the right of the ordinary people,” he said.
Yup. That’s stupidity to the highest of degrees. Seriously, Rais is this plain, downright stupid fellow. On the one hand, he’s insinuating that the Crown Prince of Johor isn’t an ordinary citizen, and as such, shouldn’t dabble in politics. On the other, the person he’s is trying to protect, Mahathir, told a press conference in April the exact opposite, that the Crown Prince was free to criticise government because he’s an ordinary citizen. Tell me, does this not prove that the plan is to provoke the Crown Prince of Johor irrespective of who he is or what he says?
Mahathir is simply pissed that Tunku Ismail succeeded in undoing the signing of the Rome Statute by pointing out that the government overrode the Federal Constitution of Malaysia. Because of this, he intends to wage a war against the Monarchical Institution using the Palace of Johor as an excuse. It wouldn’t matter to him what the Crown Prince does or does not say as the mission is to remove his father. Rais helped prove this by doing what he does best – opening his mouth wide and putting his foot in.
Let’s face it – Mahathir is desperate to do away with the Malay Rulers because the Malay Rulers will limit his son’s powers. It is not as if I never warned Malaysians about it. On the 5thof August 2018, I told a press conference that plans were afoot to turn the country into a Republic. Assuming Mahathir gets his two thirds majority, he is going to seek amendments to the Federal Constitution of Malaysia even if it costs him his money or his health.
The old man knows that time is not on his side. He is in a hurry to get what he wants and couldn’t give a rat’s ass if the Malays hate him. The rewards outweigh the drawbacks, so to speak. He knows, that with the rulers gone, his successor will be able to manipulate state assemblies as the latter will have near absolute power to decide EXCO lineups. By the time he’s gone, his son will inherit a republic so powerful, he would practically be in charge of every single Malay state.
Now do you understand what’s going on? Dato’ Seri Mukhriz Mahathir lacks certain qualities required of a successful leader. Unless he is given a republic he can control from tip to tail, it would only be a matter of time before Lim Kit Siang and gang take control of the country. To prevent that from happening, Mahathir was planning to dismantle the Monarchical Institution by first using the Statute of Rome to prosecute one state ruler at the International Criminal Court.
Rais doesn’t know this.
One who is stupid enough to say the things he says probably lacks the genius figure it out. Seriously, if indeed one needs to be a member of a political party to discuss politics, why the heck does the Federal Constitution of Malaysia allow citizens to contest elections as independents? And why isn’t Rais training his guns at Dato’ Ambiga Sreenevasan? Was it not she who accused Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak of paying RM90 million to PAS’ “top echelons” using money stolen from 1MDB? Why is Rais not asking her to join a political party before prostituting herself in the political arena?
Over to you, Rais.
