MOVING ON AS 1MALAYSIANS THE TIGER YEAR!

Datuk Dr Jacob George's photo

Malaysians are not stupid to believe the media spin and bias as we see in various talk shows and television programmes!

They are matured and know more than we think they do!

A mainstream newspaper has spanned in their front page report that more Malaysians have gone abroad for this Chinese New Year holidays because of economy recovery!

My foot!

Those who are going away are doing so to get away from the mind games and mental assaults and embarrassment the way our politicians and others in NGO positions have behaved!

They had enough of the tensions and anxiety we read and see over the mainstream media!

They see an abuse at various tiers and having enough those who can afford want a getaway from this at least over a weekend to see how other countries govern and their various institutions and civil society and media operate?

They know how low and far from the tree we have fallen that makes mockery of all the sacrifices and vision of our founding fathers! – Dr Jacob George

While I wish all my brethren celebrating the Chinese New Year 2010 which in essence is all 27 Million Malaysians as is our custom from time immemorial!

Have fun but drive safe!

If you drink please do not drive!

Public Transport – I pray we will not have the horror accidents that we are used to during long holidays and festivities!

But I would be foolish to ignore that while the spirit of cordiality is being harnessed and shared there will be those pariah newspapers among them, a racist vernacular one – known for its racist reporting!

They have so far being untouchables!

All sane and intelligent Malaysian continue to wonder why this particular pariah and racist newspaper has yet to be charged for sedition or incitement?

Of course, they are only a particular limb – we have others, that include NGO’s who are also fanning racial and religious sentiments, even a consumer group for that matter which is shocking, for we are always asked to be focused, neutral and supporting peaceful deliberations and the respect of law and order, of fair play, accountability, good governance, transparency and ethics free from racial and religious bias – ‘phew’ that’s a mouthful!

But no – that is not the case here, where political predators and others wanting political positions have penetrated even consumer groups and are using this as a platform for their personal and private agenda!

Perhaps they want to be ministers!

An analyst of their statements on print and the electronic media is a classic example!

Instead of being peacemakers they are fanning communal tensions highlighting what is different about us rather than the many similarities that should make us all 1MALAYSIANS as Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak (above left) desires!

If this was bad – look at certain political parties who lost at the General Elections now endorsing ‘acts and omission’ that makes a mockery of a democratic state and the rule of law as interpreted and practiced by responsible, intelligent and respected governments of the world!

We know of the saying that the ‘law is an ass!’ but how constitutional law is being interpreted here is a malicious assault on even ‘the mind of a 6 month of baby!’

Reading the mainstream media both print and electronic, it is clear that there is a plan of action to destabilize states that are run by the opposition by what ever means and even if it destroys the delicate race and religious unity and relations that have been fostered by painstaking previous Malaysian founding fathers!

This is an abuse and vulgar!

As for the opposition – they must themselves be professional and clean and deliver what they have promised!

Among them having dedicated, intelligent, responsible and clean politicians being selected as their representatives at state and parliamentary seats!

Your selection of council representatives was a joke in certain areas!

Your process of vetting candidates for all seats be they for state or parliament needs an overhaul!

If you do so – you will be a force having the people behind you.

Malaysians are not stupid to believe the media spin and bias as we see in various talk shows and television programmes!

They are matured and know more than we think they do!

They are also aware and embarrassed the way our politicians and others in NGO positions have behaved!

We are also aware how low and far from the tree we have fallen that makes mockery of all the sacrifices and vision of our founding fathers!

Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak is trying very hard!

He needs help from within not more problems and to fight various ‘bush fires!’

But what about others – they may need to speak less and do more work as the moment they open their mouths they only confirm to the Malaysian electorate that they are petty, foolish and absolute stupid!

Or worst that they are racist!

I hope the tiger year will bring all of us new fortunes and the nation peace, goodwill and most importantly the much needed foreign direct investments!

No matter what the spin the truth is we are in troubled waters!

We need to work, we need to get rid of corruption, the subsidy minded from the wealthy and rich, the racist, those abusing their positions for ill gotten gains!

Our government institutions must act professionally. There must be a separation of powers with well published check and balances!

They must by their actions and impartiality regain the self respect lost!

For this to happen we need to work as a team of 1Malaysians!

 Our campaign against RACISM of all forms!
