AT first thought, it isn’t even worth my time writing on such a trivial matter.
Any person with some form of intelligence would have figured it all out.
That this racial hodgepodge, fanned by none other than Najib Razak and his 600 cybertroopers, have succeeded in making the Ultra Malays believe that they are actually threatened, their Bumiputera rights are going to vanish and that Islam is in some way or another, being victimised too.
I still smirk at how shallow some people can be. That’s why education is key.
As absurd as it sounds, most Malays are beginning to bite at it like a holy scripture.
Most Malays are fixated on the idea that their rights are being robbed, that their religion is being sidelined, and that, the Chinese are ruling the country so much that one day Malaysia will be another Singapore. And that’s how the story goes.
Thank God I studied propaganda and communications during the Gulf War in 1991.
Hence, I am blessed that I am not easily fooled by what is written and promoted by Najib’s Cytro pages.
I can see their unwritten agendas in between the lines, their political folklores edited by some of the country’s best writers, and games people play through slang, pictures and tonnes of innuendoes to taint the people’s minds.
And with that, the hallucination goes on, the fiction continues, as Najib’s coffers consistently channel wages to his cybertroopers through his media machinery.
It’s working like clockwork, denting the Ultra Malays perspectives to the point that these stories will eventually be recorded in the history books of our great-grandchildren.
For as long as their funds thrive, the cybertroopers who work to plant negative stories will eventually win the battle. And the losers will be 32 million Malaysians.
Undoubtedly, racial politics have worked in many countries, including Indonesia, that is closer to home.
And so, to deflect Malaysians from the stolen billions and historically unseen debt levels and such, Najib’s narrative focuses on Islam and Malay rights (whatever it means) without promising anything to the people.
But yet, most prefer to camp on his side.
Being a third world country, we can still afford to be laughed at.
Laughed over our backward thinking that our constitutional rights will be taken away tomorrow, that khat is a symbol of Islam that anchors our faith, and that our major focus today is to extradite Zakir Naik because he made some sordid statement or to reduce the number of work force in the army because they don’t fire their rifles three times a day.
To be honest, all these trivial issues arise, because Malaysia is a peaceful country that is not too shabby economically.
Malaysians are too well looked after that we have too much time to spend on Facebook and post pictures of all the wonderful food we eat and share the dumb stories posted and spun by irresponsible people.
If only we didn’t have proper electricity and water supply to homes, and we couldn’t afford to buy a bowl of rice to feed our families, then our focus and attention would be shifted to real issues affecting real lives, wouldn’t it?
And this is why I said, it isn’t worth my time, teaching the ingrates what we should be grateful for.
Because God already said, “Behold, God is indeed limitless in His bounty unto man -but most people are ungrateful.” – Quran 2:243 – August 15, 2019.
