He has shot himself in the foot, as usual, and this time by pontificating sanctimoniously on the issue of citizenship in Malaysia.
Patently, it’s not fair to the Malayalees who so far have been considered people with more than their fair share of grey matter. Mahathir is giving them a stink that they can no longer bear. They should seriously consider ex-communicating him from the tribe as someone who has unfortunately inherited the worst of both worlds i.e. the Malayalee and the Malay.
There has always been something more than warped logic about Mahathir, twisted being the term that readily springs to mind. This can be put down to the fact that he doesn’t have his head screwed on quite right and this is reflected in his personality and character being chronically under-developed, having never really arisen from the sub-human sub-species level.
Illegal immigrants in heaven right now after Mahathir
The illegal immigrants in the country meanwhile feel that they are in heaven right now, Mahathir’s words bringing great comfort to them, being sweet music to the ears. They know who to “vote’ for come the 13th General Election which must be held by April/May next year but can be delayed until Oct/Nov 2013 if Parliament’s five-year term expires without dissolution.
Until now, the illegal immigrants have been inclined to heed Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim’s warning to them not to take part in the voting process, and in return, they won’t be deported unceremoniously WHEN the ruling party in Putrajaya tumbles, as expected, from power.
The members of the Election Commission – keepers of the cleanest electoral rolls in the world — have also been living thus far in fear that the illegals won’t come out to vote and that means they will be hung soon from the ceremonial lamp posts lining the roads in Putrajaya.
All’s well that ends well!
Mahathir, the Father of all Illegal Immigrants, has confirmed that the country will be handed over to them at the ballot box and Malaysians including the Orang Asal and the Bumiputera, reduced to being their slaves, being drawers of water and hewers of wood in perpetuity. These Malaysians also include those who have been denied their citizenships despite the Federal Constitution or who are considered stateless, an issue raised time and again by Hindraf Makkal Sakthi which is now seeking British citizenship for them in Court in the United Kingdom.
Mahathir, disingenuously, is echoing what the illegal immigrants from the Philippines and Indonesia have long been saying and increasingly in belligerent tones: “If the Malaysian Government can give citizenships to Indians and Chinese – children of the British Empire –, why can’t they give it to us too especially when we LOOK like Malays?”
Illegal Filipinos claim that they are not illegals
Filipinos in Sabah have gone one up with an additional “excuse” to cover up the fact they routinely enter the country illegally i.e. without valid travel papers: “Sabah belongs to the Philippines. So, we are not illegals here. We are in fact staying in our own country. You guys – meaning the Orang Asal as well — are the illegals in our country which Malaysia has stolen from us.”
Given such thinking cast in congenital and pathological lies to comfort themselves, one Rodinood who claims to be Sultan of Sulu and Sabah, used to make routine rounds of the stalls at the Central Market in Kota Kinabalu to “collect taxes” for his non-existent government.
The illegals from the Indian subcontinent are not far behind the Filipinos and Indonesians either: “If the Malaysian Government can give citizenships to Indians in Malaysia, why can’t they give it to us too especially when we don’t LOOK any different from the Indians in Malaysia?” The Muslims from the Indian subcontinent are particularly demanding with an eye on passing themselves off eventually as Malays and thereby Bumiputera – son of the soil – and hopefully graduate to the higher Orang Asal (Native) status.
There are illegal immigrants from China and other countries as well in Malaysia – white illegals have been rounded up too in the Bangsar and Ukay heights areas in Kuala Lumpur – but we are not sure what their pathetic excuse, if any is. The whites, if they are British or Anglo-Saxons, would probably claim they used to rule the country during the British Raj and have a right to be here.
Going one up on the illegals, Mahathir is saying that there’s no reason why those who have stayed a very long time in Malaysia and speak Bahasa Malaysia should not be given citizenships. If these people are not given citizenships like the people who only speak Chinese, according to Mahathir, then it boils down to politics, prejudice and racism!
Najib Administration should distance itself from Mahathir’s statements
Since when did politics, prejudice and racism determine who should or should not be given citizenships in Malaysia?
Since when did looking like Malay, staying a long time in Malaysia and speaking Bahasa Malaysia automatically qualify one to become citizens in Malaysia?
Up to this point in time, until Mahathir “enlightened” us, we had always thought that it was the Federal Constitution which determined eligibility for citizenship. So, it seems that without Mahathir, we would all continue to live our pathetic lives like the miserable morons that we all are and wallow in ignorance and apathy, if not tidakapathy.
The Najib Administration, sitting on the proposed Royal Commission of Inquiry confined to Illegal Immigrants in Sabah, should distance itself from Mahathir’s statements on citizenships and prove once and for all that it’s not made up of gutless wonders.
Mahathir’s Law of the Jungle cannot replace Federal Constitution
This assumes that the Federal Constitution – the Malayan one masquerading as that for Malaysia — has not been ignominiously thrown into the dustbin and we are being ruled by Mahathir’s Law of the Jungle which, among others, reads: no need to enter the country legally; no need for Entry Permits, Work Permits, temporary residence IC, permanent residence IC and no need to apply for citizenship by naturalization; can get local birth certificate giving a place of birth in Malaysia after having being born somewhere abroad in some god-forsaken country – just make out a false Statutory Declaration swearing born in Malaysia and just make sure to register as a voter and vote for you-know-who etc etc, and if possible, get five MyKads each to go for the overkill but leave the extra ICs you-know-where until polling day.
Before we rush to the High Court of Malaya or Borneo to get a point of law ruling on Mahathir’s statements on citizenships, let’s publicly debate an issue which has been flogged to death in the wake of Mahathir’s departure from Putrajaya.
Mahathir could have only learned what little he knows about the law and the constitution by frequenting the teh tarik stalls run by the mamak community who actually run Malaysia under the ingenious guise of Ketuanan Melayu (Malay political supremacy).
Mahathir makes a virtue out of ventilating his ignorance in public
He makes a virtue out of ventilating his ignorance in public.
That’s because there are any number of people in the country who think that only pearls of wisdom can come forth from Mahathir. He has a divine monopoly from heaven on this wisdom and therefore qualifies by some kind of warped logic to be considered “God’s Gift to Malaysia and the Malays”.
Like the conmen who graduate to become godmen and prey ion the vulnerable, there are enough people in Malaysia who worship the very ground that Mahathir walks on. It won’t be surprising if they petition the Pope at the Vatican before too long to ordain him as a Living Saint since Islam is considered as a protestant branch of Christianity.
Why does Mahathir keep doing these things i.e. mouthing absolutely outrageous statements? Is it because there’s no law against shooting oneself in the foot? It’s not only getting to be more than a little annoying with foot-shooters like Mahathir running amok but extremely tiring as well.
It’s high time that the law on getting blatant falsehoods published is strengthened – fair trial before being shot in the public square, hung, fried, shot again and fed to the swines — and invoked and the book is thrown at miscreants, so to speak.
