It is also my prayer that this will pave the way forward for all politicians, both the young ambitious ones, the old rusty recycled out of touch with present political psyche and realities and those wanting to be active politicians hiding under NGO movements and other forms of civil society movements, to take a step back and think before they plunge the nation into chaos for short political gains!
Consumerist: PKR’s Lee Khai Loon Should Apologize For Targeting The PM In A Crude & Vulgar Manner!
‘Will A United, Harmonious, Prosperous And Successful Malaysia Be A Thing Of The Past Thanks To Political Adventurers And Shenanigans?
I pray not!’
At a time when multi-racial, multi-religious and multi-cultural Malaysian society is inflamed by anxieties, fears, and provocation by racist and extremist elements, each and every day and night, – the protest by PKR’s Machang Bubuk state assemblyperson, Lee Khai Loon in my humble opinion, was extremely vulgar!
It is sad when politicians initiate political responses without first considering the impact and resulting response especially when Malaysia is now seen on a ‘national war footing of threats, counter threats, allegations, racist, seditious utterances and so forth unheard of in our nation’s past history!
Young Lee is a young new kid and I wonder whether his parents shared with him of our growing pains as a nation?
As such, he should take the timely advice from Uncle Lim Kit Siang and apologize over his kangkung-themed flash mob targeting the prime minister on Jan 16.
In the present climate of fear, anxiety, trauma it was an act that was excessive, offensive and insensitive!
I personally know it hurt the premier and many of us in the manner it was initiated and spanned across the social media!
Yes, by all interpretations of – It was insensitive!
There was no necessity whatsoever to initiate the protest the manner it was where kangkung was stuffed into the mouth of an effigy of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak!
The counter protest that was organized and the seditious and threatening tone that took place was also unnecessary!
More so when two bystanders were beaten up!
I pray that immediate and unconditional apology be forwarded by Lee.
It is also my prayer that this will pave the way forward for all politicians both the young ambitious ones, the old rusty recycled old of psyche with present political realities and those wanting to be active politicians hiding under NGO movements and other forms of civil society movements to take a step back and think before they plunge the nation into chaos for short political gains!
A political chaos which will invite nothing but doom and destroy all that we have worked and sacrificed for over 6 decades to make our nation a beaming beacon in the emerging markets!
Apologizing is not a weakness but a strength that shows the political maturity and wisdom of an individual!
I pray you take Uncle LKS advise!
