Icerd and the false promise of middle Malaysia - Commander S THAYAPARAN (Retired) Royal Malaysian Navy

The Loss of Scrotal Fortitude by the Mahathir led Pakatan Harapan Government, in layman's terms , it means that they lost their balls! Whilst in Somalia I have seen Officers lose their "Scrotal Fortitude" when Somali kids storm their vehicles at the entrance to the University of Mogadishu. Clutching their M16's and trembling with fear, until one of my soldier's shoos them away. Sad and Pathetic.
Malaysiakini : I said the old devils are at it again, Who knows what they’ll do, And it’s right now like it was back then, The old devils are at it again. – William Elliot Whitmore, ‘Old Devils’
COMMENT | In an interview, DAP’s Lim Guan Eng was reported
to have said “the situation needed to be pacified, it should not stop
people from continuing to express their views on Icerd (International
Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination).”
Really? So, let me get this straight. DAP, which has not given its official stand on the ratification of Icerd, wants people to express their views on this issue? DAP,
who routinely mocks MCA for being subservient to Umno, wants people to
express their views even though it has not declared its own position on
the issue after the cabinet decided (by consensus) not to ratify Icerd?
the purveyors of the Bangsa Malaysia Kool-Aid, wants people to express
their views, even though it has warned the Chinese community (and
others) to be wary until after the Dec 8 anti-Icerd celebration? So,
the finance minister of this country, who has made these tirades about
speaking the 'truth' even though it is economically or politically
disadvantageous to do so, suddenly seems to have lost his ability to
speak when it comes to the issue of Icerd.
But don’t worry folks,
I am sure you will speak up on this issue, even when Lim, if asked to
comment, will just deflect, leaving you holding the bag. Another DAP leader, Liew Chin Tong (photo), says this country needs a vision which highlights the virtue of the middle ground. When
politicians babble on about the middle ground, what they forget to tell
you is that it is contextual. Here in this country, when I talk to
people about what they think the middle ground is, they speak of middle
Malaysia with two definitions.
first is the social contract. It is not a real document but rather it
is an unspoken understanding. The middle ground is that there are
policies and ideologies in place that benefit the majority, and as long
as minorities can exist comfortably, albeit with limited freedoms, they
must not question the inequalities of the system, even if that system
which claims to “uplift” the majority is in reality detrimental to the
community.Read it all here..................
