A message that comes too late

Khairy Jamaluddin, the new UMNO Youth boss, has set a new agenda. He is calling on the Malays to stand up, have a new mindset and to lead Malaysia forward with compassion and magnanimity towards all races. He told the Malays to get rid of the seige mentality, that they are slow, backward, and needed to be protected, to 'civilisational confidence'. What he meant was that Malays must be confident of themselves and their ability to compete equally with everyone, with the ethnic minorities at home and the people across the world. 'For too long, Malays and Umno have been caught in a mindset that is negative and overly defensive....' Reflecting on this negative mindset, one wonders how a people who see themselves as backward, slow and lacking in intellect, be able to lead a nation forward? And that was what Malaysia was for the last 30 years under Mahathir. The latter claimed that Malays were stupid or less able than the rest, not sure if it includes himself. And if that is true, how then can Malaysia progress if it is being led by the less able? Would Khairy's new message see a more confident and self assured Malay step forward to face the world squarely, as well as their minorities, and to move forward with the rest of the world?

Although it may not be good for a nation to have slow and stupid leaders, but on the other hand a country with too smart and too cunning leaders will make he people suffer in silence and powerless, living in fear and developing a kiasu and kiasi mentality.

Can such a kiasu and kiasi nation compete with the rest of the world and survive in the long run (when most of its real talents are earnestly migrating to foreign lands)? Yes, some may think so; why, simple: replace them with foreign talons. Hahahaha .... Instand coffee, instand mee, instand population. Hahahaha ....

haha, you got your point there. too hot bad, too cold also bad. in fact there is an article in ST today about too smart people going to wall street and created the financial crisis because of greed.

Another racist cunt calls for "special behaviour and thinking" for the "special folks" who have in the past (apparently) embraced "special negativity".

Here's an example of an arrogant racist from Ummmm......No!

Puki mak, anak sundal!

One word he mentioned strikes me. He said that Malays are 'sovereign'.

I am lowly educated, and my interpretation of that word is that Malays are born to rule only. Like the British Royal Family?

Somebody please enlighten me.

In fact, (many will disagree) each of us is a sovereign individual.

> Like the British Royal Family? <

1. A family whose members are granted special privileges automatically simply by chance of birth

2. They do absolutely nothing

3. Their realm is economically hammered and nearly broke

4. They still do nothing

5. They get free money from the state by way of the taxpayers... i.e. Britons work, the Royal family simply takes

6. Their lineage is in-bred. (family members fucking each other — illegal for 'ordinary' citizens, slaves and serfs)

... you can see the parallels with the UMNO doctrine.

He is already a 'Dato' or something isn't he?

He is ambitious to a fault. I doubt he wants to be just a figurehead without power.

How can his message be taken seriously if they still retain the NEP? How to compete with the world if they cannot compete even with their minorities at home without the help of the NEP?

Just talk lah!
