We are suppose not to believe in what bloggers wrote in their blogs but since the government and its controlled media can believe in the posting of an obscured blogger living on the hilltop, hit by lighting inside her bedroom, half way across the world, I feel that we should also believe in what Raja Petra writes in his blog, Malaysia Today.
Today, I am stealing an article from Raja Petra and post it here for all to read, hope Pete does not mind.
NO HOLDS BARRED
By Raja Petra Kamarudin
Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak says that Umno does not need PAS and that it is strong enough to survive without PAS. There are some in Umno who also belittle MCA, MIC, Gerakan, etc., and suggest that Umno is better off without these non-Malay parties -- especially when the non-Malays are ‘so demanding’.
Well, let the facts speak for themselves. Umno, on its own, is dead meat. Umno needs PAS because it realises that it rules this country at the pleasure of the non-Malays. Without the non-Malays Umno is dead. So how can Umno claim to represent the Malays when the Chinese, Indians and natives of East Malaysia are giving it that power to rule?
Umno needs PAS because it wants to be able to legitimately claim that it is a Malay party. Currently it has no legitimate right to that claim. It is not the Malays but the non-Malays who have given Umno the power to rule.
In the last General Election, Umno won only 29.33% of the votes and 35.6% of the seats in Parliament. Only when you add the votes of the other 13 parties in the ruling coalition would Barisan Nasional win 50.27% of the votes and 63.1% of the seats.
And that is after taking into consideration the gerrymandering and postal votes, mind you. Without all this fraud and election rigging Barisan Nasional would have been kicked out and today the opposition coalition, Pakatan Rakyat, would be running the federal government.
So, no, Umno is not strong enough, as what Prime Minister Najib claims. On its own -- without the Chinese, Indians and natives of Sabah and Sarawak -- Umno would have been buried back in March 2008. And that is why it is still, until today, talking about courting PAS.
Umno knows, unless it can get married to PAS, it’s future will always depend on non-Malay support. And Umno hates that. But most Malays do not realise this and thus far Umno is safe. But once the Malays wake up and realise that it is the non-Malays who are keeping Umno in power that would be fatal for Umno.
Umno may be a Malay party. But it is not the Malays who give Umno that power to rule. It is the ‘pendatang’ Chinese and Indians and second-class citizens from East Malaysia who have been colonised by Umno. They keep Umno in power. And they allow Umno to insult them on top of that.
Bodoh punya Cina, India dan orang Sabah dan Sarawak. At least prostitutes get paid for getting screwed. You get screwed and you pay for it. You are worse than prostitutes. I have no sympathy for these types of Malaysians. And these are the people who complain the most. Stupid!
Let me say that again. Without the Chinese, Indians and natives of East Malaysia, Umno is dead. You keep Umno in power. And you get insulted on top of that. You deserve what Umno dishes out to you. And Najib has the gall to say that Umno is strong enough and does not need PAS. And do you know that there are some leaders in PAS who feel that they should go to bed with Umno? Yes, not only are the Chinese, Indians and natives of East Malaysia bodoh. Melayu pun ada yang bodoh.
