Racial Uneasiness Clouding 53rd Independence Day Celebration
It must be a GRAVE CONCERN to all Malaysians that the dawn of our 53RD INDEPENDENCE DAY will be much over-shadowd by the ESCALATING RACIALLY-CHARGED EXCHANGES among politicians, bloggers and people-on-the-street.
Obviously, remarks by teachers in Johor and Kedah, did not come out in isolation of CHAINS OF RACIALLY-CHARGED EXCHANGES which have dominated our political scene, since the run up to 2008 GE.
Lim Kit Siang and Anwar Ibrahim must be VERY HAPPY, that the SEEDS OF RACIAL HATRED they planted in the run-up to 2008 GE have grown into stems, branches, leaves and fruits.
There were hardly any RACIALLY-CHARGED EXCHANGES prior to 2007… and almost NONE when Anwar was the UMNO Deputy President and the Country’s Deputy PM. But, ever since he was SACKED by Tun Dr Mahathir in 1998, HELL SEEMS TO HAVE BROKEN LOOSE.
Lim Kit Siang must be one of the HAPPIEST POLITICIAN overseeing how his BOMB is developing. In his book ‘The Time Bomb’, Lim had long predicted a time when there would be a HUGE EXPLOSION, the RACIALLY-CHARGED EXPLOSION. Lim knows very well, he was the DESIGNER of the bomb.
According to the Laws of Physics, ‘for every action, there will be a reaction’. The way I see it, remarks made by certain individuals recently are REACTIONS to previous chains of actions, including proposals to abolish the Malays/Bumiputras equity, calls to abolish Bumiputra discount in purchasing properties, and the BIGGEST ACTION of all, DAP’s long-held ‘Malaysian Malaysia’ which would practically abolish the 153 Article of our Federal Constitution which provided for SPECIAL POSITION OF MALAYS/BUMIPUTRAS and related policies.
On this 53RD INDEPENDENCE DAY, Malaysians of all walk of life should ponder, and ask the QUESTION, why all the present RACIAL UNEASINESS were almost non-existent prior to 2007.
Only Lim Kit Siang and Anwar Ibrahim know the answers.
