Malays can be quite bad, especially when they fight each others.
And the closer they are to each other, the worse it gets.
They fight their own brothers and sisters harder than they fight outsiders.
The current Umno fratricide is perhaps among the worst in history.
It's total war for most of them. No quarters given.
They fight each others harder than they fight DAP, PKR and Pas.
You can't even be neutral in this fight.
In fact the neutrals are the ones getting hit most.
The bullets come from both sides.
In my case, I'm getting shot up more by the anti-Najib side.
That despite me defending Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad from the start of the fighting.
I defended Dr Mahathir because he is the best statesman that we ever have and he is an elderly man. It's not right for us to kurang ajar towards him, no matter how unhappy we are with him.
At 90, Dr Mahathir is like a father to us all.
As I pointed to veteren journalist and blogger TS Zainuddin Maidin in a past posting, those who want to label me as a paid blogger on Najib's side should check my track record throughout the fight at this posting ;
Still, the attacks continues.
Apparently, there are people among the anti-Najib side who consider anyone who doesn't attack the prime minister in person or done anything remotely helpful to him as an enemy.
You are with us or against us. That's how it works with them.
This is one of the comments from the anti-Najib side ;
The comment came at my posting where I tried to explain why Dr Mahathir decided to be present at the Bersih 4 rally.
I was concerned as so many people, including those who are fond of him can't seem to understand why he went to the rally.
They started calling him lackey of DAP, barua Cina and such.
As in the past and in future, I will try to defend Dr Mahathir. It's not much but I will try my best.
Of course I gave a bit of my opinion that Dr Mahathir should not stressed out himself too much because I'm convinced that Najib will not voluntarily step down anyway.
But obviously, that's not right for some of these self-righteous anti-Najib people.
They just want to win the fight.
For me, they don't really care what happened to Dr Mahathir.
Well, the pro-Najib side is actually not that much better.
If you all care to read my past postings defending Dr Mahathir, then you know why I said that.
Some of them tried so hard to please their paymasters that they make a fool of themselves by sounding stupid and without manners.
And worst of all, they tend to get very arrogant.
They think just because their paymasters are in power they can behave any way they want.
Hey guys, the rakyat is watching.
You all only have two and a half years to fix things for your bosses before the next general election.
Do you all think you can do that by being arrogant towards the very people whose support you need when it's time to go to the polls again?
You think my friend in this posting
will want to once again go through the trouble of dragging her children, including the autistic one on a five-hours bus ride to give her vote to your bosses after what you all did to her family?
People remember, okay.
And when you all fall, those whom you treated unkindly due to your arrogance will show you no mercy.
Always remember that.
And pro-Najib people, some of you all have very poor manners, okay.
I want to celebrate Merdeka and you all put this kind of comment for what?
You all think that kind of comment can make people support Najib, is it?
Hey pro-Najib people, the rakyat get put off by such rudeness, okay.
Use your brain la, stupid.
Sometime I really don't understand how Najib choose his people.
Most have their brain underneath their kneecaps.
Newly minted DPM DS Ahmad Zahid Hamidi appears to be having the same problem of getting numbskulls into his team.
But that's a story for another day.
Okay, I'm going to sleep again. It's my way of enjoying this Merdeka Day.
