HKR KL112 - Jangan tanya apa UMNO boleh buat, tanya apa anda boleh buat pada UMNO...

500 atau 700 ribu orang yang hadhir di KL112, bukan lagi isu besar. Yang penting ialah rakyat pelbagai bangsa disatukan oleh azam menumbangkan UMNO/BN yang korap dan menzalimi rakyat. UMNO dan Najib tidak ada jawapan kepada kebangkitan rakyat. Yang boleh mereka lakukan ialah bermain2 dengan angka jumlah himpunan.

Ratusan Ribu berhimpun di Stadium Merdeka untuk membaskan diri dari kerajaan yang korap, dan rasuah. Pada masa yang sama, Najib menghimpunkan kaum India di Semenyih merasuah mereka dengan sekampit beras dan ole2. Najib pun bangga melihat kekuatan mereka yang menghulurkan tangan dan berebut rebutan.


Orang Cina bergaul dengan orang Melayu dan mendapati orang Melayu juga manusia seperti mereka- ada perasaan takut dan ada harapan menggunung inginkan kerajaan yang baik. Orang Melayu bergaul dengan Cina dan India dan dapati mereka juga manusia biasa. Ada rasa takut dan ada harapan. Mereka saling faham memahami. Setiap yang hadir memberi kekuatan kepada satu sama lain. Kekuatan inilah yang akan menumbangkan kerajaan yang angkuh.

Tidak ada masaalah seperti yang selama ini digambarkan oleh UMNO. Kenapa pemimpin UMNO berniaga dengan orang Cina tapi orang Melayu kebanyakan diajar untuk benci dan kelahi dengan orang Cina? Tiu Nia Seng!



Orang India dan Cina hairan mengapa UMNO hilang akal. Jika PR memerintah, yang jadi PM tetap orang Melayu. Tatap ba!. Bukan Guan Eng atau Kit Siang. Bahasa Melayu tetap bahasa rasmi. Ugama Islam tetap agama rasmi dan tetap dianuti oleh orang Melayu. Kesemua kepentingan Melayu ini tidak diancam pun. India dan Cina tidak mahu mengubah ini semua.Mereka tidak boleh ubah pun.

Raja2 Melayu tetap Raja Melayu bukan Raja Cina atau India. Mereka tetap muslim yang baik, menjaga kesucian agama Islam dengan menjadikan diri mereka ummatan wasatho- umat pertengahan yang jadi contoh teladan. Mereka manusia teladan yang tidak berzina dan tidak minum arak.

Yang diubah ialah UMNO disingkirkan digantikan dengan orang Melayu lain. Kalau UMNO lawan PAS, UMNO kalah, orang Melayu jugak yang menang. Kalau PAS menang, UMNO kalah, orang Melayu jugak yang menang. Kalau saya menang PRU13, saya kalahkan seorang Cina MCA. Yang menang ialah Melayu. Melayu saya tidak kurang dari Melayu orang UMNO.

Jadi apa masaalah? Yang berdepan dengan masalah ialah pemimpin Melayu dari UMNO yang rasuah dan korap yang sudah menyamun harta benda rakyat. Mereka yang takut dan cemas.


Yang rasa takut ialah Shahrizat Jalil, Raja Ropiaah, Zahid Hamidi, Syed Mokhtar Bukhari, ketua2 bahagian UMNO yang rasuah dan sapu tanah rakyat. 

Yang takut ialah Najib bila kita kemukakan Deepak Jaikishan dan suruh menyanyi macam burung kenari. Yang takut ialah tauke2 Cina yang bersekongkol dengan pemimpin UMNO untuk samun negara ini. Tauke India juga.

Apa yang perlu nya majoriti orang Melayu ratapkan apabila segelintir kaki busuk bangsa Melayu ini ditumpaskan? Rakyat Melayu yang menang!

Najib kata dia gembira melihat ramai manusia datang bertemu dengan nya di Tesco Semenyih. Memang itu perasaan orang feudal yang melhat hamba abdi berpusu pusu dan bersyusyun syusyun menadah tangan mendapatkan ole2 yang dibawa nya.


Ribuan kaum India dikerah oleh IPF untuk bertemu dengan Najib. Mereka diangkut dengan bas dan dijanjikan akan mendapat ole2 dari Najib. Najib bilang, terus sokong dia, maka banyak masaalah kaum India akan selesai. Kamu ada 55 tahun tak dapat selesai maka sekarang dalam masa 5 tahun, pasti beres?



Saya setuju. Kaum India mesti terus beri Najib nambikei mereka dan apa apa lagi yang mahu diberi. Berikan Najib tairu, apom dan tosei. Najib akan terus memperlakukan kaum India terutama yang susah sebagai peminta sedekah. 

Keadaan jadi kelam kabut apaila orang ramai berpusu pusu mendapatkan kampit hamper yang disediakan sebagai penarik kehadiran kaum India. 


Penyibar nombor wahid propaganda dan pembohongan UMNO merasakanlebih wajar menyiarkan himpunan merebut beras daripada himpunan kebangkitan rakyat. Bersedialah kamu mencari perkerjaan baru. Mengikut kiraan Rais Yatim, lebih 50,000 datang. Tesco hampir habis semua barangan mereka. Bil akan dihantar ke JPM untuk mendapat bayaran.

Inlah yang boleh UMNO tawarkan. Jangan tanya apa UMNO boleh buat, tanya apa kamu boleh buat pada UMNO. Maklum sahaja, UMNO itu penaung dan kita yang dinaungi. UMNO penjaga keselamatan dan kebajikan. Orang Melayu yang beragama Islam sia2 mengistiharkan solat dan ibadat mereka, hidup mereka dan mati mereka kerana Allah- sebab sebaik sahaja keluar pintu, pemberi rezeki ialah UMNO.

Tanya apa yang kamu boleh buat untuk UMNO kerana UMNO itu tuan dan UMNO itu penaung kepada kamu.

55 tahun diperlakukan sebagai hamba abdi, ini kalilah kita bangkit mengistiharkan merdeka dan penjajahan UMNO. Kaum India! Bersatulah dan singkirkan UMNO yang memperhambakan kamu! Nilai kamu bukan sekampit beras!- Mohd.Ariff Sabri bin Hj. Abdul Aziz@sakmongkol ak47 blogspot


 
Myth of “UMNO is Malay; Malay is UMNO” Forever Shattered...

While UMNO apologists and sycophants in academia, blogosphere, and mainstream media quibbled over such minutia as the number of participants at last Saturday’s massive KL112 (January 12, 2013) rally, two facts are indisputable.  

First, that peaceful and largely Malay crowd, the largest the nation had ever witnessed, forever shattered the myth that UMNO is Melayu, and Melayu, UMNO.  

Second, given a modicum of respect by and without provocation from the authorities, Malaysians are quite capable of partaking in peaceful rallies.

On this second point the authorities, specifically the police under its new leadership, are finally learning that water tankers, personnel with anti-riot gears or tear gas canisters, and other crude displays of power often precipitate rather than prevent violence.  BERSIH 3.0 demonstrated that very clearly.

The size and orderliness of the rally, together with the bravery and determination of the participants, was reminiscent of the transformative event of over 66 years earlier, the opposition to the Malayan Union Treaty. That altered the course of our history.  Insha’ Allah (God willing), last Saturday’s rally too, will.

The power imbalance between those demanding change and those in power back in 1946 was enormous.  Then it was mostly illiterate and unsophisticated Malay peasants facing the much superior and more formidable colonial authorities.  Yet in the end, right won over might, and justice prevailed!

Today, while the UMNO Government is detested to the same degree as the old colonials, it is nowhere as sophisticated wielder of power as the British.  Meanwhile, those clamoring for change are far more worldly, more committed, and in far greater numbers than their adversary, UMNO and its supporters.  


More importantly, unlike the colonials, today’s UMNO government is crippled with corruption and incompetence while also being crude wielder of power.  All the more we should expect that right and the truth, as well as justice, will again prevail.


National Laureate Pak Samad’s stirring reading of his poetry “Di Atas Padang Sejarah” (On This Field of History) last Saturday at Merdeka Stadium prompted me to make that comparison with the anti-Malayan Union Movement.  He is old enough to remember and may have even participated in that historic protest.

“Di atas padang sejarah,” Pak Samad asserted in his poetry, “pantang kita mungkiri janji.”  (We must not renege on our promises.).  Today, the successors to those who brought us merdeka over 55 years ago have betrayed that great promise.



While Pak Samad’s gray hair and rousing poetry lent an air of history and gravity to the moment, the Blue Gang’s Ito Mohammad and his “Ubah Sekarang” (Change Now!), specifically composed for the occasion, gave the gathering a certain hip!  There was no mistaking however, the seriousness of his message.

“Ubah sekarang,” Ito belted out in his trademark rhythm and blues beat to the cheers of thousands, “Kita cari kebenaran! (We seek the truth!) Ubah sekarang/Teggakkan Keadilan (Uphold justice!)”  Then to the roar of the crowd, he added, “Ubah Sekarang / Send-off Barisan!”

Ito is a talented performer and a committed crusader with a definite mission, in the mold of Bono.  Ito is for truth and justice, to give meaning to merdeka, for the sake of our children and grandchildren.  One thing is certain:  Ito is no carma (cari makan – hired hand) artist!

The anti-Malayan Union Movement was led by the charismatic, farsighted and savvy Datuk Onn; so too KL112 in the person of Anwar Ibrahim.  In many substantive ways Anwar is a far more formidable and superior leader.  


Onn meekly obeyed the commands of his sultan in the sycophantic manner of Hang Tuah, and accepted his banishment to Singapore; Anwar in the chivalrous tradition of Hang Jebat had the courage to take on a man far more powerful (at least then) than the sultans or King – Mahathir.  

Anwar paid greatly, physically and in many other ways, for his defiance but in the end, unlike Jebat, Anwar prevailed.  Last Saturday was proof of that victory.  Meanwhile his old nemesis Mahathir was left to rant in his blog.

Far more important than leaders are the commitments of their followers.  UMNO could not have organized a rally a fraction of the size of KL112 without resorting to bribes, outright giveaways, or having their carma artists, academics and journalists singing high praises for its leaders.

There was a pathetic attempt, no doubt by a bumbling UMNO operative, at a Facebook posting calling those rally participants to collect their fees!  That posting bombed as it was immediately exposed for the hoax that it was.  Those UMNO hired hands were not even sophisticated enough to pull a cyberstunt!

 Fair and Free Elections

Anwar commits to ten goals, the top being free and fair elections.  Elections must not only be fair and free but more importantly, be seen as such.  Our Elections Commission lacks credibility, both on conducting elections as well as maintaining the integrity of the electoral rolls.

It is too late to change the personnel at EC.  Besides, that would not make any difference.  They have been indoctrinated to believe that their agency is just another electoral instrument of Barisan instead of an independent agency answerable to the King and thus the citizens.  The only credible way to ensure fair and free elections would be to invite external observers.

Free and fair elections should be the priority. The responsibility for maintaining the integrity of the electoral process extends beyond the EC and Election Day.

We must never let or tolerate the 2008 post-election fiascoes of Perak and Selangor to recur.  In Selangor, the hooliganism and vandalism of the staff of and condoned by its outgoing UMNO Chief Minister Khir Toyo stood in marked contrast to the civility and orderliness in the transfer of power between Gerakan and DAP in Penang.  This being Malaysia, the races of the main protagonists at both events did not escape notice.  


In Perak, the permanent establishment including the sultan which should have been the stabilizing and buffering elements were themselves hopelessly entangled in the mess.  They did not shine; they were the problem.

Khir Toyo, now convicted of corruption, epitomizes UMNO’s rotten core.

We must also never allow the prostituting of government agencies and departments into Barisan election machinery.  I have no problem with The New Straits Times and Utusan continuing as UMNO newsletters and their “journalists” as UMNO propagandists; after all both are owned by UMNO.  I take issue when taxpayer-financed agencies like Bernama, Radio Television Malaysia (RTM), and Biro Tata Negara (National Civic Bureau) doing the same.



Ito’s rhythmic ubah sekarang is not, as UMNO leaders would like us to believe, changing horse midstream rather letting an old lame and tired one to pasture.  Our culture is kind; we do not send old horses to the glue factory.

A second into midnight on August 31, 1957, at the same Merdeka Stadium, Tunku Abdul Rahman declared merdeka for our new nation.  He brought home from England our Declaration of Independence.  More importantly, he gave us hope to all the promises implied with our new sovereignty.  

Today, Tunku’s successors in UMNO Baru (New UMNO), through their venality have betrayed that solemn covenant.  They have, in Samad Said’s poetry, mungkiri janji.  It is time we reclaim that promise and our dream.

Last Saturday, when Anwar repeated “Merdeka” seven times in the manner of the late Tunku, he had begun that process of reclaiming.  Tunku brought home the declaration of Merdeka; Anwar will give meaning to its words in our everyday lives.

Ubah sekarang! Tolak mereka yang memungkiri janji!  Change now! Remove those who have betrayed us! - M. Bakri Musa


Ini Kali-lah... The Final Countdown to Putrajaya



cheers.
