Again, Malays are Still Lazy – Dr Mahathir

Mahathir defends ‘lazy Malays’ remarks.

He had a few days ago vilified the Malays for being lazy, saying he was ashamed that they had been left behind by the forward-thinking Chinese community. Dr Mahathir continues to see the “Malay” problems of intelligence, performance and social mobility by attributing them fundamentally to their “inferior” genes, as elaborated in his 1970 book “The Malay Dilemma”.

“THEY ARE STLL LAZY”, he again told the Utusan Malaysia newspaper in an exclusive interview, citing the gender imbalance at institutions of higher learning where the majority were women as an example. “The Malays are lazy; they are not interested in studying and revising. If we go to the universities, 70 per cent of the students are women, where are the men?” “They prefer to become Mat Rempit (Malay motorcycle gang members), that is why I said they are lazy,” Dr Mahathir told the newspaper. 

The former Malaysian Prime Minister continues to disparage his country’s Malay ethnic group.  He blamed himself for failing to transform the country’s ethnic majority into a hard-working race during his tenure as the 4th Prime Minister from 1981-2004. Truth is that under the leadership of Prime Minister Dr Mahathir over 22 years, his economic and business agenda has created a large number of politically connected Bumiputra rent seekers promoting a business system riddled with kickbacks and corruption.

The poor economic attainment of many in the privileged Malay majority in Malaysia can be better understood not in terms of their race, but in term of a class structure of social inequality created by their own Malay elites.

Mahathir can say anything and get away with it. There are very few political leaders that can do such things and appear fearless.

Right. No one hs the bodek to stop Mahathir -- he'll fuck anyone from US President to his cuntrees own PM.

However his argument for economic under-performance i.e. "Malays are still lazy" doesn't hold water. Your average Aussie is any time the world's foremost, biggest lazy cunt. Population: Australia has ~ 23 million, Malaysia ~ 30 million. Both cuntrees have agriculture and natural resources, including fossil energy sectors.

If Aust is full of lazy cunts, how come it is wealthier than Malaysia?

Here is my theory, backed up by the observances and philosophies of 2 of my favourite "Asia-philes" : Marc Faber and Jim Rogers: if you want your shit-hole Asian cuntree to MAKE MONEY allow the Chinese-dominated PRIVATE SECTOR to be able to operate freely.

Without the Chinese PRIVATE WEALTH in Malaysia, the cuntree is a piece of shit swirling at the bottom of the toilet bowl.

Similarly in Pinoy-Pussy land: No Chinese, no economy except for selling beer and pussy. And for that matter, everywhere else in SE Asia: Myanmar, Vietnam.

Singapore and Hong Kong ==> Chinese private wealth/ private sector dominated ===> both territories become the richest motherfuckers in the whole of Asia, and possibly the world.

Therefore: Malaysia can be that economic power house that has eluded Dr M's best efforts:

No need to slap the Malays into "productivity" mentality. Leave them alone lah.

All Dr M has to do is give the Chinese FREE REIN and not allow shitheads from UMNO to get in the way.

Got "fuck off" UMNO?

The mistake that the true Bumis in Malaysia made is that they allowed a MAMA putra to rule over them.

And this mama putra chastised them after becoming the Ruler.

The next cuntree will be Sinkie Land when they allowed another MAMA chinee to rule over them.

These Foreign National Indian Talents gonna made dalits out of us sooner if this coming GE, the daft chinee majority does not wake up from their slumber in the already HOT boiling water.

Just to add the traitorous BABA chinee had already sold out the country to all these foreign trashes one and sundry.

Its not about the people. Its about the system. The system he puts in place is lousy that why the people are lazy. Just like papists put in a lousy system so there is no talent created here and have to import them from third world countries.

Have always find Mahathir a effective leader. However, when it comes to living, he is quite like any other man. Not a Mahatma Gandhi or Nelson Mandela. He could have done better.

One crisis two fates.

During the 1997/ 98 AFC, the other strong man of SE Asia, the late ex-President Suharto had to relinquish his post after his country's economy was ravaged by outside forces.

Facing the same crisis, ex-PM Mahathir imposed capital control and managed to pull his country out of the doldrum in the early 2000s.

Was IMF rescue of Indonesia a bane or a boon?

The verdict is still out and history will be the judge?

Respect should be given to any strong man who not only maintain a strong rein domestically but able to stand up and withstand international pressure and criticism yet emerged victorious in the end.

At least former PM Mahathir is not the type who only knows how to bully his own people like a tiger domestically but in the international scene become a pussy cat.

He dares to stand up to international big powers and hold his own against them.

Such mettle deserves respect.
