Enemies such as Sarawak Report etc are shamelessly disguising their lies as manna from heaven!
Thank you, Raja Petra, for giving us all a wake-up call.
NAJIB, WHEN YOU HAVE TO SHOOT, SHOOT; DON’T TALK
So, Najib, when you have to shoot, shoot; don’t talk. Tell us whether what we heard is true or not. If it is true what do you have to gain by keeping quiet? After all, even if you keep quiet they are still going to shoot you anyway.
THE CORRIDORS OF POWER
Raja Petra Kamarudin
One of my favourite movie lines is “when you have to shoot, shoot; don’t talk”. I still remember this line, which at that time had us all in stitches. It was from the ‘spaghetti western’ movie The Good, the Bad and the Ugly starring Eli Wallach, Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef. But then I was only 16 at that time so simple things like that turned me on (as did Rose Chan’s shows at BB Park).
Anyway, that is what I am going to tell Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak today: when you have to shoot, shoot; don’t talk.
I am sorry to have to tell the Prime Minister that there is too much talking and not enough shooting. So if you are not careful you are going to end up like that chap in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. He talked too much and did not shoot so he ended up dead.
I am afraid to also have to tell the Prime Minister that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is doing a lot of shooting. And he is not alone. He has an army out there that is also shooting. He has the Umno people. He has the Umno Bloggers. He has the opposition Bloggers. He has the opposition media. He has the mainstream media. He has the foreign media. He has the opposition parties.
Hell, every man and his dog is shooting while all those who should be considered Najib’s friends are just keeping quiet and are not coming to his aid except for a handful of people.
Was this not what Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi a.k.a. Pak Lah did? And what happened to Pak Lah? Do you think you can escape Pak Lah’s fate when you do things the way Pak Lah did?
Lim Kit Siang has suggested that Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin force Najib to retire or ‘take leave’ and then take over the running of the country with the help of Dr Mahathir and Pak Lah.
That sure sounds like a desperate move. When Muhyiddin was the Johor Menteri Besar, the opposition called him the most corrupt MB in Malaysian history. Dr Mahathir, on the other hand, proudly said at that time that Muhyiddin is his richest minister.
Pak Lah was condemned as one of the worst Prime Ministers Malaysia ever had who went to sleep (literally) and allowed the country to run on autopilot and crewed by the boys on the ‘Fourth Floor’ led by Khairy Jamaluddin — and policies dictated by Singapore (which is why Pak Lah shelved the Crooked Bridge project).
Dr Mahathir is blamed as the man who killed the judiciary and who allowed money politics (another word for bribery and corruption) to seep into Umno and for race and religion politics to shape Malaysia’s political culture, which today has become so bad that it is threatening to turn Malaysia into another Beirut if not contained.
Yes, and these same three men who they used to condemn to kingdom come should now force Najib to ‘take leave’ and these same three men should take over the running of the country.
