Is Karpal Singh stupid?

by fellow Malaysian blogger Malaysia Waves:

"Karpal still doesn't get it. The time for opposition politics is over. Now, the PR is faced with a mountain of practical issues to overcome and making enemies with:

a. The majority race (malays)
b. The royalty
c. The Islamic faith

is not going to help each and every PR government in carrying out their duties.

Karpal need to wake up and smell the coffee. The time for rhetoric and empty threats is over. The reason why Karpal is not getting resonance from fellow DAP leaders is because they are all in the business of “getting things done”.

And practically, handling issues which is of not in the majority of the public’s interest is not a big priority on their agenda. What’s important now is to deliver what has been promised in the last election.

And I am sure that making enemies with the Palace is one sure way of getting yourself in a hot soup for no major gain.

My point being is that let us tackle issues that’s of public’s interest and not of your own individual political ideology agenda which is most of the time unpopular with the public.

The public wants to see the government deliver. That’s the #1 agenda for all. And the Malaysian public is a very pragmatic type of public, including the Chinese. That explains why the level of support of the Chinese to Dr. Mahathir when he was PM was consistent since 1990.

Despite the fact that Dr. Mahathir is a racist, a bigot, an ardent supporter of National Economic Policies and not to mention Malay Rights, the Chinese electorate came to his rescue in the 1999 elections and gave BN a rousing support in 2004 all because of him.

Karpal and his band of misfits should ask themselves, why is this so? How can a man who’s belief structure is heaven and earth apart from the Chinese can get so much of the Chinese support?

The answer is simple. Dr. Mahathir delivered. During the time of his reign, the Chinese experienced economic uplifting never before experienced under any other Prime Ministers. For that, the Chinese threw their support behind Dr. Mahathir come what may. In fact, the level of support for Dr. M among the Chinese did not wane even after he made his Negara Islam declaration.

DAP should remember this for in 1995, Dr. Mahathir nearly routed DAP from the map of Malaysia. In 1999, if it wouldn’t for the support of the Chinese, the BN government would have fallen with their face down. The Chinese defended the rule of Dr. Mahathir despite Dr. Mahathir being the opposite of the Chinese political beliefs.

Karpal, for one, have not learnt his lesson. Karpal needs to evaluate an issue and differentiate between issues which is “realpolitik” and “elitepolitik” of nature. It seems most of the PR leaders are aware of this except Karpal.

As a result of Karpal’s non-discriminatory actions, the BN has found an opportunity to drive a wedge between the PR leaders. Their insistence to indict Karpal for sedition is an attempt to drive a wedge between the PR leaders (http://www.malaysia-today.net/2008/content/view/7187/1/)

One should ask, why indict Karpal on this issue alone? Why wasn’t there an indiction on his other statements before? The reason is that the parties involved in this issue are members of the PR specifically PAS.

The BN is trying to catch PAS in an awkward situation. Karpal’s statement was in defense of the Perak MB’s action to sack the Director of JAIP. It will be very awkward for the MB of Perak not to defend Karpal. On the other hand, if the MB of Perak or PAS do not come out to defend Karpal, then it will show that there is no solidarity among the PR component parties.

But, the fact that no other DAP leaders coming out to support Karpal shows that Karpal is guilty of becoming a loose cannon. And PR do not need loose cannon, especially with someone like Karpal Singh.

So, my suggestion to PR leaders is to leave Karpal to his own devices and let him sink and swim with his statements. Pretty soon, the public will see that most of Karpal statements do not represent the DAP or PR in any way."


But We UMNO also got sedition mah!

Well.. there are couple of questions they need to ask Pak lah. He seems to be "makan cili tidak tahu pedas"

1. Pelantikan MB Terengganu, Umno has made a lot of sedition remark to Sultan .... remember the "Natang" word ? And pak la himself did said "Unconstitutional" on regard of pelantikan MB ? Why no action has been taken so far ? but action being taken to those are no Umno/BN supporter ?


The above is an example ..... ban example by far menyakit teringga bila mendengar !!
