For me, among the biggest problems for Malays to be united is the existence of purely racist idiots among those claiming to be fighting for the cause.
Here is an example of one of them writing at the established blog Unspinners
Duit pajakan Pasar Seni untuk majukan Cina!!!
Does the writer really need to add this bit of crap at the end of the posting,
Sial punya Nurjazlan si mak Cina. Kalau ada darah Cina dalam badan, mesti nak jahanamkan Cina! Tok Mat dah sedar sebelum dia mati kerana dia tahu perangai anaknya sendiri.
Nurjazlan mak Cina. Inikan pula Omar Ong yang mak bapak dia Cina!!!
What does the parents of Nurjazlan and Omar Ong got anything to do with whatever alleged screwed up those two had done?
Does insulting their Chinese parents helps the cause?
Not unlike those two, my mother is a Chinese, and a DAP supporter at that. But what does that got anything to do with me being what I am? I still love my mother despite whatever she is and nothing can change that.
Maybe the idiotic Malay racist who wrote that posting didn't realize that the Malay unity achieved by Umno in the fight against the Malayan Union got nothing to do with insulting anyone's parents.
Datuk Onn Jaafar didn't go about insulting the parents of some Mat Salleh to galvanize the Malays against Malayan Union which could had enslaved them all forever. He definitely didn't insult the Chinese parents of anyone to unite the Malays for the first time since the fall of Malacca to a colonial power half a millennia ago.
Oh, he also didn't pull out a keris to scare off/pissed off anyone like what his grandchild did.
What he did is being honest and sincere in wanting the Malays to secure their future on this land once called Tanah Melayu. He was honest and sincere in not wanting the Malays to be enslaved again in their own country.
Those who want to unite the Malays must be honest and sincere about it...and of course must not be acting like some brainless racist idiots.
I have seen too many Malay bastards who claim that they were memperjuangkan hak Melayu but in actual fact were only memperjuangkan perut masing-masing.
"Kerajaan mesti memperuntukkan kuota untuk kontraktor bumiputera," they said, but once they got the contract, they sold it off to some Chinese company in exchange for a small percentage of the returns from the project.
"Kontraktor bumiputera tempatan perlu diberi peluang mengambil bahagian dalam project Rapid di Pengerang," they said, but none of them came forward to present a list of local bumiputera contractors capable of handling the works at the project site.
"Datuk Ghani had betrayed the Malays by selling off land in Iskandar Malaysia to the Chinese and causing the Malays to be sidelined by the development there," they said, but in actual fact they were condemning the former Johor Menteri Besar because the man refused to give them land at a much cheaper rate.....so that they can sell it off later for a tidy profit to Chinese business interests....well, I suggest they try again with the new Johor MB.
Honestly, I wish the Chinese had accepted the Malay moderate leaders such as Datuk Ghani during the GE13 so that I don't have to preach Malay unity and associate myself with idiots such as the one who wrote that posting at the Unspinners.
But I guess it's too late for that now.
