Some may not like the heading and say that it is uncouth, but the media has reported openly that Ali Tinju and his group of army veterans in Gerakan Merah will be performing calisthetics, a polite way of saying “wiggling of butts”.
No one from the ruling parties or the law enforcers have pounced on these people who are threatening to perform such a disgusting act.
Worse, they have performed it before, but have not been chastised in any way for it.
While it is good to know that there are Malaysian army veterans such as Ali Tinju and gang who are all very agile with their posteriors and are willing to wiggle them in public for the sake of making a statement, it is also interesting that these army veterans of Gerakan Merah are all targeting a woman when doing their butt exercises in front of Bersih 2.0 committee chief Maria Chin Abdullah, just as they did Datuk Ambiga Sreenivasen in 2012.
Ali Tinju, whose real name is Mohd Ali Baharom, had promised to do this and more in front of Maria’s house in the near future in protest against the upcoming Bersih 5 rally which will be held on November 19.
While Maria has been quite ladylike in not saying anything about Ali Tinju’s butt or his buttcrack, for all that he threatened, it is perplexing for the public that our police have not been swift in protecting Maria.
As most of us will try not to gag watching the heaving and the bending of these pot-bellied men who are showing off their behinds to the steel gates of a house, it is also mind bending that the authorities have yet to take any action on these very same people who not only threaten to show off their backsides but also warned that Maria should watch her back.
Are the police waiting for a crime to take place before getting these butt-warriors?
Is it because the authorities believe that Ali Tinju and his followers’ butts too have the freedom to assemble? What about protecting a woman’s honour (should anything happen when emotion run high) – not that Maria’s honour will be tarnished by these wiggles of army veterans.
Truth be told, it is not that easy for veterans to wiggle their posteriors, but one also wonders what will happen should one of them not be able to get up straight after all that wiggling, for if one checks these men out, they are all pot-bellied and aged. That would be a sight to behold for sure.
And what exactly are they aiming at – fame? Do they know not, no one has become anything by wiggling bums (except for Donald Duck, perhaps).
Do they actually think Maria would call off Bersih 5 after being enamoured with their behinds?
One tries hard to think like Ali Tinju and his team, but fails, because these buttheads are only as wise as buttcracks, and nothing more.
