Who hijacked Merdeka? August 31, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Current Affairs, Democracy, Event, History, Malaysia, Note2Self, Politics, Southeast Asia.
An unfactored immobility saw my switching on the telly close to midnight only to view what was the start of the BN General Elections Campaign 2007.
From here on, kiddies will learn that only Umno, MCA and MIC were part of the independence struggle. Repeat a lie enough times and they will swallow. Then again, they’ve been shoving this rubbish of a propaganda for decades now, only this time, we get the visual effects, not to mention:-
a. The Prime Minister’s Son-in-Law aka Tok-Mat-Rempit being given the ‘honours’ to lower the Union Jack and to hoist the national flag. One can tell, he really practised for hours on end;
b. Pirdaus Ismail aka Encik-Bad-Temper-SoreLoser-So-I-Kick-the-Ballot-Box-at-Permatang-Pauh having the honours to read the doa;
c. A Prime Minister who opened his mouth (and here’s an opportune moment to insert a Buffy quip:- “..[Y]our mouth is open and sound is coming from it. This is never good.”).
Boys of the 4th Floor, did you or did you not give this poor man a prepared text?
I nearly hurled my sandwich at the telly, only to be stopped, by good sense, that the spread of foie gras had travelled a long way dodging the French customs to my kitchen.
So the next best thing is to give ‘em hell at the coming GE.
Merdeka (kali 7)!
