Mahathir playing the race card again

The racist politics of Malaysia today has it origin in Mahathir. When racism or whatever serves his interest, Mahathir will take it to the extreme. Today he is stirring racist hate again, this time attacking Najib and the Sultan of Johore. Investment by China is bad, Chinese investment is bad. He has set up another party and wondering how many non Malays would join his party or form a coalition with him to take on Najib by playing with the race card all over again.

The Sultan of Johore is not going to allow Mahathir to stir anti Chinese sentiment in Johore. The Chinese are pouring money into Malaysia to the tune of hundreds of billions. It is not just benefitting Johore alone, Selangor, Malacca, Pahang, Trengganu and Kelantan are all beneficiaries to foreign Chinese investments, all negotiated fairly between Malaysia and China, unlike the days of colonialism when the British put a gun at the sultans and said, sign here.

Malaysia is enjoying an economic boom it has not seen before. No western countries or Arab countries are willing to invest that kind of money in Malaysia like the Chinese did. There is no gun boat diplomacy, no coercion, strictly business. But Mahathir is angry because the investment is from China.

What Mahathir is doing is like what Sultan Ibrahim said, ‘this is a clear case of economic sabotage and racial instigating…If investors wish to pump money into Johor Baru, do we say “no, no, if you are from China, you cannot come”…Dr Mahathir thinks it is easy to play up race because these investors happen to be from China. This is utterly disgusting”’.

The realities of today is that every country is now independent and is best placed to seek investments and negotiate the best deals they could get, unlike the days of colonialism when all deals favoured the colonial masters. Every economic and commercial deal is sealed when both parties agreed to the terms that they deemed are favourable to them. No more one sided colonial terms. Najib and the Sultan would not allow that to happen.

Oh, some unthinking western cronies would blindly agree with Mahathir, anything Chinese is bad, must bring in the western companies to balance the Chinese investments. What about the days when all investments were British, why no calls for Asian investments to balance western investments? And what if no western company is interested, no Arab company is interested, wait for the coconut to fall? Investors with the money will go wherever they are welcomed. Every country is putting up their best terms to attract foreign investors.

The world today is different. Every country, every leader would want the best for his country and would get the best deals for his country. No leaders would sell out their countries to foreign interests or to sell out the interests of their people to foreigners. Najib and Sultan Ibrahim are smart enough to get the best deals for Malaysia and Johore. Mahathir is only stirring shit and will stir all kinds of shit for his personal agenda.

Ha Ha! He is envious of the investment but is angry because there is no under table money for him and his crony. He forgot many called him Mr 20% when he was in power. End of the day, none of the politicians is clean. Some do give back but many just take and take.

The reality is there are only abt 30% Chinese voters in Johor?

Prices are also not cheap for many locals including the Chinese?

1 kg bak kwa now sell at Rm142 in City Square CNY promo?

Thats mahal even for sinkies shoppers?

1 bowl of dessert Rm5?

1 Swiss roll Rm15.90?

Anonymous said...

Likely still "cheap" for sinkies?

But down there, salary same $ for $?

Means their workers for eg. shop keepers also only get abt Rm1000+ salary per mth and how to afford pastry at Rm15.90?

Imagine bak kwa in sinkieland at 140+ sing dollars?

Sell to who?

Which oldies will rush (to queue up for hours) to buy?

Mahathir still thinks he is the same person 20 years ago. He is not. No more. He is merely a spent force, though there are still daft followers and corrupt politicians gathering around him.

With Anwar, another spent force, in prison, the Opposition is too weak to do much damage to Najib, who is also playing the race card.

It will be a matter of who is more "convincing". In Malaysian Politics, you can be convincing with easy money floating around, or convincing with giving jobs and positions to certain cronies and sycophants.

The Sultan of Johore simply hates Mahathir. He will never allow Mahathir to rise again to cause troubles in the country.

Why is Mahatir so stupid?
Why play the race card?

Why not Mahatir learn from HDB?
Don't sell property to PRC.
Just sell 99 year leases to China investors.
Just like HDB sell 99 year leases to Singaporeans.

Do you think PRC people smarter than Singaporeans?

Anonymous said...

No need 99 years lah?

In China, they sell at 60 y3ars lease and the Chinese still form long queue overnight some more?

Some more downpayment (often) 50%?

Mahathair, he is Indian.

Not Malay.

They called him Mahathair Kuti.

Investments from India ok but NOT China.

You think he is fighting for the Bumis??

He is a sly Fox exterminating the Bumis disguised as a Bumi.

Many in Matland for the sake of Bumi benefits including the chow her Chinese converted to Muslim just for the benefits.

But their evil hearts still dislike the Muslims.

When they become rich, you think they helped their fellow poor Muslims.???

The most pure and non materialistic Muslims I seen are those really poor living in Kelantan who are the Ones going to Heaven.

The Rest including Mahathair condemned to be burn in HELL.

He was not the 20% man lar. It was only 10% during his time. Anyway he nearly started a war with Singapore with the threat of cutting water supplies and Singapore would have no choice but to bomb Kuala Lumpur into Stone Age. Lucky common sense prevailed and war was averted.

Because they are not Najib or Sultan Ibrahim. Don't compare idiots with people that always think citizens first.

An effective politician is one who is masterful at the art of manipulating their political opponents, the masses and even people in their own party in order to get these gullible fuckers to ACT in ways which will BOOST or BENEFIT the politician toward his goals.

In Malaysia RACE and RELIGION play significant roles in the overall culture. Since politics from all cuntries arise from their respective CULTURES, Malaysian politics is extremely sensitive to racial and religious issues, and targeted "stimulation" of those issues by savvy and cunning VETERAN politicians... Like Datok 'Mamak' Mahathir...A person who identifies as Malay, denying his INDIAN HERITAGE (because race very sensitive lah Kotek. Even Dr M feels it in his bones)

So yah. Dr M's brilliant move is to use the RACE CARD. The object is to WIN the Malaysian political game. The object is not to make sour pusses like Redbean happy who can only see the world one way.

All along it is a trap and china walks into it. China will lose big in Malaysia. She should be happy just making toys which makes kids happy. Taking over the world needs another kind of appetite called ruthlessness.

The Era of plucking one country against another during Mahatair, Anwar's time is over lah.

That time challenged for PM, outdo one another to see who can do more to please the Malay Race is over.

What's all their capital gains tax or what's not foreigners cannot sell foreigners rules all bullshit. They can said but not apply. What's retrospectively laws etc.

Now the Royalties are wise up kena plucked by the Mama that they are actively involved in their Rightful Rulers roles. The Young Geneation of the descendants of the Sultans are no lounger parasites taking in the meagre coffers as offered.

Najib is wise to their demands and is accommodating.

This ia just like a case if you borrow monies from friends and chow kar ďo not honour your promises to repay.

Next time, all your friends will run a Mile when they see you. So the sultan of johore and Najib knew better not to play out the Chinese.

This is for their Nation's future and prosperity.

Also now it's time of a golden opportunity with the Chinese support to surpass Sinkieland.

Cannot depend too much on their oil now.

SINKIE land spite.China. Now the Chinese indirectly invest in Matland to teach The stupid Looney Looong a lesson.

Waiting for the day when SINKIES plucked grass from the ground to cook as Soup and scavenge garbage dumps for food.

You trust the bloody Ah Neys???

Your backsides MRT trains also can run through.

Ah Neys behaved as though they had arrived.

How can they beat China in terms of hard work, brilliant minds and MONIES.

You see them now in Groups traveling to Matland especially Genting Highlands.

Heads up arrogant and walked in eight or tens banging you in the way. Thinking you also from Maitland and they are better than Matland. Spend all their time just taking selfies.

Like never see such wonderful scenes before their land of shits.

Spend a cent in the casino will cause them heart attacks.

If they ever go in, crowded round just one jackpot machine playing one cent per push with eight to ten onlookers fondling their balls.

Waste time to crowd around us with their smells.

Luckily most of the time they are outside playing children trams.
