| What Umno and all need to know about the Malays, A laughing stock – the Malays are made to become. - Azly Rahman

Malaysiakini : I think political parties wishing to understand the Malays need to
know the following, through an essay I wrote a while ago, I hope
Analysing the events that happened the years preceding the 14th
general election - the humiliation of peaceful protesters, the
harassment, the intimidation, the threats - leading to the 60,000 strong
yellow shirt Bersih rally that ended peacefully in Kuala Lumpur, I have
this to say about those who are out to misrepresent the Malays:
Aren’t Malaysians tired of seeing the Malays being represented as
buffoons, stupid, amok-prone, close-minded, Rempits, keris-kissing
fools, Ali Baba forty-thieves, rejects, religious fanatics, red-shirts,
It is a clever production and reproduction of the Malay ruling class,
both feudal and wannabe-feudal so that the Jebat aspect of the Malay –
the amok, the wannabe-sultan, the misogynistic, the sex-maniac
royal-groper and rapist of ancient Malacca, the hedonistic, the
grotesque epicure, the gangster, the absurd – is pushed forward and
propagated to strengthen the Tuah aspect.
The fool that followed the foolish orders of the Malacca sultan – the
bad hombre of Malay culture – these are the twin representation of the
Malays. A laughing stock – the Malays are made to become.
