Before playing the video-mull on the banner and the message.
Then ask whether if these demonstrators even know whats going on in the country and scandals of the current Goverment? Or do they even care !
Being Racist ? Politicians,some have personal lines of principles,Just depends on how far or how low they will draw the line. There are decent ones and more often than not , the other extreme,without ethics.
The race card to PM Najib is just means to an end…another tool in a politician's arsenal of unethical , unscrupulous ,unprincipled political manuevering.tactics.
And if being racist serves his purpose-then so be it- but then he can just as easily change his colours into a champion of multi-culturalism if it were to be flavour of the month..Clueless as to what consistent principles are..
And the red shirt rally proves that he has lost the moral mandate to lead a nation supposed to be built on moderation and multi culturalism..
He does not act like a PM of the whole country for all communities but seem to be merely PM for just a select narrow ethnic group even within his own political organization.
After the Prime Minister ditched moderation in his leadership by supporting the racially charged ‘Malay Red Rally’ last Wednesday, he can kiss goodbye to his Global Movement of Moderates.
Former Umno deputy minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Abdullah who is CEO of the Global Movement of Moderates Foundation told reporters that Umno must take a stand against division chiefs who had come out with controversial statements during the rally
He narrowed in on Kota Bharu Umno division chief Datuk Mohd Fatmi Che Salleh, Sungai Besar Umno division chief Datuk Jamal Md Yunos and Ketereh Umno chief Tan Sri Annuar Musa.
In the run-up to the "red shirt" rally, Fatmi had made a fiery speech and led a group of Umno members as they burned effigies of DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang and of DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng.
Jamal had challenged former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to prove his Malayness by attending the "red shirt" rally, while Annuar had said that he was a racist in accordance with Islam. "Make a stand, otherwise you are sending mixed signals to the public," said Saifuddin, adding that he did not agree with the leaders' statements.
No wonder a DAP MP has called the Prime Minister a hypocrite
Evn factions in UMNO now seem to be using the Red shirt rally and the inflammatory racist theme as excuse to distance themselves.
.Justifiable in a way,for it sure seem to be political suicide to be associated with such extreme racial logic displayed,particularly when UMNO has maintained that it is leader of a multi ethnic coalition of political parties of BN.
Although Najib is so defiantly cocky about the Red shirt gathering ..
