Umno out to erase Mahathir but Malay voter response is cute!

By Cordoba.Ali

PAS U-turn

Former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad wants the Malay community in Malaysia, the majority Muslim community indeed, to dumb the Umno into the dustbin of history.

But it is harder than anyone think.

The reason: Malays have a strong connection – deep rooted some says – with the Umno.

And the Umno bastion in Johor will testify to the demise of Mahathir’s reign as a Malay politician, says the present Umno leaders.

To prove their point, they are on a long drawn campaign to undermine and even erase the achievments under Mahathir, reminiscent of the erasing of fallen pharoas.

While Mahathir’s campaign against Prime Minister Najib Razak and the Umno has brought stronger resistance among the Umno grassroots and warlords, the Umno response is even more scathing.

They are accusing Mahathir of many ills and remorses, including that of not having one of his children as a top political figure in the country.

And they are hitting well below the belt attacking Mahathir on past failures while the recent failures under Najib are gleefully painted as things that has past.

A few details are emeging on how the Umno is playing its cards among the Malays, in order not to get dumped by the voters.

And it is hilarious, based on an imaginary conversation between voters of various races.

This first scenario that follows is what Umno is telling the voters at least in peninsular Malaysia, but the response from the Malay voters are cute!

Chopping the wrong hands

Here is a sampling: A Malay voter leaves his house to head – with his wife and children – to the polling booth in a village in Selangor.

While walking, to the polling station, the wife asked the husband: “Is it true the Islamists back-stabbing the opposition?”

Husband: Yes, they are dividing the opposition’s vote to get the Umno to win in our constituency.”

Wife: “But why are they doing that? Why want the Umno to win? We teachers want them to lose, after all the wrong they have done!”

Husband: We can say they are doing wrong but we must understand they do not want the DAP to win also.”

The son intervenes: “But dad, here no DAP, its Mahathir’s party Bersatu against Umno and PAS,”

The father replies, saying Mahathir is now supporting DAP after spending years fighting them. And this is not what the Malays would expect from Mahathir.

Son: But the PAS want to implement Hudud, want to chop hands yet they want to hold Umno’s tainted hands to victory?”

Dad: “Yes, but you know they are also saying Mahathir’s made his children rich. If its not halal, then PAS would be right to get some hands chopped!”

Wife: Yet, the PAS took the 1MDB money? And that is fine?

Sting: I will be watching you!

Dad does not know what to say to that.

They reach the polling station, confused as never before thinking what has happened to the Malays in Malaysia, who are now divided between three or four parties that claim to represent them but half of them are tainted with corruption.

Son: Well, if everybody is corrupt in this country, am going back home and I will not vote!

Mom: No, you should vote for Mahathir. His sons earned their fortunes, but Najib’s son-in-law was ‘gifted’ with 1MDB money.

Dad: You should not speak out loud in public, they will be watching every move you make and will be watching you.

Son: Let me play Police “I will be watching you,” while strolling back home.


  1. This election depends on the right thinking men and women of Malaysia. The whole fury and might of the UMNO/BN has been turned on YOU Now. Najib knows that he will have to break you or lose the election. If you can stand up to him, all Malaysia may be freed and the life of the Malaysians may move forward into a new nation that embraces justice and equality, promote freedom and share prosperity.
    But if you fail, then Malaysia, including Sarawak and Sabah States, including all that you have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new dark age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of Perverted laws. Brace yourselves to your duties, and so bear yourselves, that if Malaysia last for a thousand years, men and women will still say, This was their finest election.

  2. The whole Malaysia is corrupted, so vote for the lesser of the two main evils. Obviously you voters know who are the lesser ones, Mahathir was evil when he also tooks some money during his rein of 30+ years as PM and his pocketing of the state money was much much less than Najib (current PM) who stole $$$$$$$$$ Billions and worse, committed murder after he had an affair with the Mongolian interpretter in the French submarine case who was also pregnant with his love child. To top it all, Najib curtained behind the political screeen of UMNO to maneupulate the race card and silencing all critics with jail and dismissal even with his own deputy who so much make a squek of this heineous crimes. In doing so, he has dismantled the rule of law in Malaysia a fundamental principle to ensure checks and balances in the country and most importantly the fibre of Democracy
