Have The Dayaks Lost Their Balls To Taib?

'Political castration': What exactly did Adit mean?

Seliong anak Wau | Nov 28, 08 4:05pm

From Malaysiakini

I refer to the Malaysiakini report State rep Adit's entry to boost S'wak PKR.

The almost 6,000 Iban supporters following Gabriel Adit into PKR made it to the national news. The figure may yet be verified but in the report of his speech, Adit, a four-term assemblyperson, told the crowd that his main reason for joining PKR was the ‘political castration’ of the Dayaks under the BN state government.

We castrate animals in real life. The purpose is to stop reproductive function in male animals. How do we ‘politically castrate’ people? Are Dayaks ‘politically castrated’ people?

Is Adit's statement representative of the majority of the Dayaks' sentiments? Do the Dayaks feel they are being ‘castrated’ in some ways? Adit's view may lack consensus; that is very obvious. If Adit represents the dissatisfaction of the Dayaks, there are Dayaks from only one side of the political divide.

If Adit's supporters are passionate about Dayak's rights as well as alienation, there are Dayaks who feel the present administration had been fair and generous to the Dayaks. But Adit's statement goes a step further: ‘political castration’.

If we interpret this term correctly, ‘political castration’ is the key to several issues in the state. The treatment of Dayak's land is paramount.

The Dayaks, especially the majority Ibans, feel they have been cheated and betrayed in the development of their native land. The basic questions of land titles have only been answered with all forms of excuses.

Do Dayaks really need to give up the rights to their land for development? In this land development, the Dayaks have to give up their rights to the land for a minimum of thirty years with additional option for further thirty years.

For a total of sixty years, the present generation of Dayaks would be ‘dead’. There are two dangers here; unknown boundaries and future changes in land code.

Are the terms of land development fair to the Dayaks? Many Dayaks are questioning the terms of land development. To them it's lopsided.

Firstly they signed without qualified lawyers explaining the contents. Secondly, the language of reference is English. Thirdly, rural Dayaks are not included to provide inputs to the manner of the development.

This resulted in squabbles on boundaries, fruit and rubber trees felled, encroaching into other people's land etc. More than 100 related legal cases are outstanding. Finally, many Dayaks have not received the promised returns for the development of their land.

Surprisingly, there are no huge plantation companies in Ngemah, Adit’s constituency. It is not accessible by road as yet. This poses a serious question; are Ngemah Dayaks deciding as proxies for other Dayaks? Do they speak for their fellow Dayaks from Baram, from Lubuk Antu etc?

If they do, Adit's view might be held by the majority of the Dayaks.

Dayaks are generally not interested in the national news. What happens in Selangor, Kuala Terengganu, Penang and other places of the Peninsula do not interest them.

But they ask practical questions, like why are jobs found only in the Peninsula, and why are there no Dayaks serving as officers in the town? What then is ‘political castration’ to Adit? Adit's view on ‘political castration’ seemed to emphasise this point.

Firstly the riches of the state are not proportionately returned for development. Factories and industries are found only in the Peninsula. Can some be allocated to us? This view of ‘compensation’ is more severe among the Dayaks. Their surroundings have been destroyed by logging and plantations. For their hardship, what do they get in return?

They lament over destroyed wildlife, destroyed fishing grounds and muddy rivers. Dayaks complain, but nobody listens – is this the ‘castration’ Adit referred to? On the second point, Dayaks generally find it difficult to ‘infiltrate’ the civil service.

Just a test case: during the Hari Raya season, government offices virtually come to a standstill. You don't have such scenario for Chinese New Year and Gawai Dayak. We have to ask Adit if this is the ‘castration’ he referred to.

‘Political castration’ is most effective when done at young age. Are education and vocational training made more difficult to obtain for the Dayaks? We really don't know the figures. Of course in the Peninsula, it is just hearsay that Malay students do not face difficulties in obtaining financial aid.

Did Adit refer this or did he mean things like vocational schools, matriculation, ITM and universities admission? Maybe he referred to overseas scholarships?

Again, let us ask Gabriel Adit once we see him.

There are other issues that Dayaks are generally not happy about. We must not forget that the Dayaks are not the rowdy, ungrateful specimens.

It takes a lot to offend a Dayak, but once angered, he is equally hard to pacify. Once a Dayak is suspicious, he has a very short fuse. Right now the Dayaks are generally in that mode; suspicious and on a short fuse.

‘Political castration’ is not the solution for the Dayaks. It only provides some spaces and temporary respite for the administration.

In a huge pen of goats, some males may escape castration and they would immediately fulfil their roles as the un-castrated males as soon as possible. A ha! Maybe that is the solution for the Dayaks. Do the Adit's way.

From the Free Online Dictionary:

cas·trate (kstrt)
tr.v. cas·trat·ed, cas·trat·ing, cas·trates
1. To remove the testicles of (a male); geld or emasculate.
2. To remove the ovaries of (a female); spay.
3. To deprive of virility or spirit; emasculate.

The dayaks are bullied all the way. I have seen an incident where a simple dayak was selling her produce in an open alley and was coficated of her product by the local authority. Yes she is wrong but her "crime" is no better then those who display their goods up to more then half the "kaki lima". And most of those working in this local authority are our people....whatlah. To earn a few ringgit is already that difficult what more wanted to earn a few thousand and in the process uplift our living standard. Yes, justice must be serve and seen to be served at the voting paper and share the riches evenly.

Ketuanan Rasuah” made Dayaks just another delivery boy?

Wonderful greetings for you Dayaks. Finally you got your title Datuk Gambir. Yes, that sex stimulants that prolong your ejaculations. And yes, from sex maniacs psychopaths to your own son the spoilt brat that got nothing to do with Sarawak other than self-glorifying purposes summed up just how nonsensically phony is the whole concept of titles being conferred. Some people still live in the past Victorian-era looneys, while some people worried with the economic doom and gloom by the same sick maniacs that try to evaporate our pension money into thin air but horrifically Datuk Gambirship being awarded for appreciation. When you think about Dr.John’s concern on Dayak standings, what kind of appreciation needed for Dayaks when in fact Dayaks are just delivery boys?

Know (And Serve?) Your Enemy.

First and foremost, Dayaks must stay calm and patient. “Know your enemy” tactics is an ancient, timeless Sun Tzu advice but Dayaks, rather than learning that from early Chinese migrant to Borneo here choose to learn the delicate art of liquor distillation rather than the Art of War. Instead of joining forces with Liu Shan Bang to fight Brooke’s army and minions, Dayaks still perfecting their langkau distillation. The Japs comes and go, Tun Jugah were offered a magic kite ride also known as (aka) the helicopter and giant toothpicks business aka timbers and some idle lands for farming aka Green Heights housing, that Kalong Ningkan with zero skills on wireless internet to govern a republic called Sarawak, Leo Moggie can’t accept how dopey Yaakub bloke to his Dayak goons but that the closest fight against Taib in the Ming Court affair only for J*bu and Kanyan to tip the balance and now here we Dayaks are getting the crumbs as delivery boys. Categorically during the Ming Court affair if J*bu, Kanyan, Linggi family and just only two Foochow groups such as KTS (Lau family) and RH group (Tiong family) sided against Yang Dikasihi, we could have a Dayak CM today. As you can see now, all of them get their dopes like Salcra plus palm oil cartels, AP car permits, timber concessions, construction projects, lots of token of appreciation for their staunch support for the one common enemy Yang Dikasihi. That ‘close’ if translated in present value is worth RM5-6 billions. Talk about the tip of balance! Right, the langkau is perfect but the Chinese only allow the longhouse trademark as bottle labels, so there goes the 200-years old study by Dayaks gone into thin air. Got it? Back and forth historically, Dayaks stands as delivery boys can only remain as comedic as ever, no matter which master they serve. Instead of knowing the enemy, Dayaks tend to serve their enemy. Our own supposedly Dayak liberators can only become delivery boys. How pathetic!

Ketuanan Rasuah: Dayaks Can Only Get The Crumbs.

Malaysia is a nation built on evasive hypocrisy, simplified autocracy and highly organised corruption hierarchy. Using an intangible racist rule such as Ketuanan Melayu and Social Contract, Umno can only perfecting their manipulations by using dopes like NEP etc to legitimise corruption and printing money for themselves. It is the same race supremist concept employed by Klu Klux Klan, South African apartheid regime, Robert Mugabe’s land reform and now Umno is an exact carbon copy by creating, manipulating various type of tools in the name of Malay rights. Or the right to be corrupted. This is the party of thugs, with their 2,000 delegates choose their president and effectively our PM post, instead of allowing nationwide general election for PM post. That is democracy for you the 27 million Malaysians! And Dayaks being the wholemeal brand under ‘Bumiputera’ beneficiaries is a total faux as the beneficiaries are Dayak politicians and their goons. That’s explain why some commented that Dayaks standing down the last just a bit above the Orang Asli. Just like the wonder of compounded interest turned opposite way, Dayak being the victim of constant delaying tactics, divide-and-rule tactics, ridiculous education system, it’s all compounded to make and keep Dayaks poorer for ease of control. So Dayaks got Federal ministers, governent department heads but is that really representative to what the reality of Dayaks on the ground? One can only propose a purpose-built NGO association for Johor Ibans Association since Dayaks in Peninsular there concentrated the most since many Dayaks fleeing their own kampung that is hopeless for their future. Dayaks may got ministers here and there but sorry, it is all superficial and hollow. None of Dayak MPs oppose the government bill in petrol price hike as opposing means end of their perks, projects received while we all enjoying goods that will never drop in price. But that is what delivery boys do, just like our Dayak MPs in Dewan Rakyat, obedient ball-carrier. They think they can get a bigger share for being a ball-carrier but in fact only getting the crumbs. Ketuanan Rasuah means Dayaks leaders will forever be held for ransom and please, do not be fooled by that PRS chants of being bullied by Umno and PBB. Just serve them right and see how far PRS can bite the hands that feed them well all these years as good, obedient delivery boys.

The Perfect Divide-And-Rule Job.

Historically, Dayak politicians for some unknown reasons, never sit under one all-Dayak political party effectively for one, long sustainable period. Greed, self-centred, egoism, animosity, prejudice among themselves can only be the right recipe for one common enemy Yang Dikasihi to divide and rule them. The fact that Dayak Aduns, MPs scattered around BN component parties perhaps is the best strategy for oppositions to trail and subdue them. Those followed Ming Court affair and read The Broken Shield book will know just how close the Dayaks (being part conspirator along with some powerful Chinese politicians and of course that bloody Yaakub bloke) to form a new state government. But what happened thereafter nothing sort of shame and hatchet job to finally divide and rule further the Dayaks till this very day. Permas a despicable history while Yaakub enjoy his money in UK, spending his life there in pardon. Dayaks to this point effectively dead in unity against Yang Dikasihi, even in opposition side Dayaks are largely scattered in various parties and that can only complicate the matter worst. All is not lost as Yang Dikasihi also running out of time with some BN Dayak leaders slowly broke ranks, the Malays still angry over Melanau over-dominance and Taib’s lack of trust even to his close aide to choose as his successor with his immediate family members and sons inevitably will take over, and this surely backfired with his brand of never-ending political dynasty. Yang Dikasihi divide-and-rule tactics soon will come over himself or ‘taste your own medicine’ is best describe it. So you can see, time is on Dayaks’ side and it’s up for the opposition to regroup themselves in a more efficient but effective manner. They can be scattered but they can only be united if they have a common enemy to fight against. It doesn’t matter which party or group, the more elusive the Dayaks in carrying the attack the better. When the time comes, Yang Dikasihi is unable to see where the opposition coming from as he become Sarawak’s sole common enemy and more interestingly the reversed divide-and-rule tactics began to backfire on Yang Dikasihi once more inevitably. This time there’s no Yaakub or James Wong for Dayaks to team up but Dayaks can only do the opposite to finish the job almost 25 years late. If yang Dikasihi can divide-and-rule over Dayaks, then Dayaks can do the same to the goons that aligned to Yang Dikasihi. It’s up to the opposition to pick my clue. Time has change so do the tactics. But be calm and patient.

Relentless ‘Anti-Government’ Shit-Stirring By Media.

Another form of propaganda by government to inhibit one-sided information to wide audience is through media. You read it everyday and believe it and hypnotized by it. Dailies such as the ever-shameless Borneo Post and the worthless Eastern Times being the classic Gestapo-grade pseudo informants for the masses. Being branded easily as anti-govt for the sake of criticising as easy as George Michael finding a man to mate in the forest is absolute nonsense. It is very sad that our local media can be so rottenly un-independent at all. Unfavourable but factual news and issues hardly make it to the day, which is one of the reason particularly for the rural folks hidden from the truth when half of the world on the brink of capital bankruptcy while the news of palm oil dividends payment confirmed our economy remains on the paradise. When the retrenched Ibans from Johor forcibly coming back home would the fairy tale finally broke the truth. By then even Salcra have to auction off their new multi-storey head office building to the highest bidder none other than the Chinese subcontractor that plow the palm oil for them. Now they have the excess palm oil nowhere to sell, it’s the media reluctantly hit the panic button instead, using diesel biofuels to cover up their losses. Given the fact that in Sarawak there’s no immediately ready large-scale users for palm oil-diesel biofuels, now the media seems to be anti-government news in opposite direction. And yet another unreported truth, the Dayak NCR landowners are cornered, tied up with 60-years land lease contract with the loss-making plantation schemes with no legal options for withdrawal or compensation. So Borneo Post and Eastern Times, need more fan to shit-stirring your news huh?

Go For Chinese Schools, Not DAMA or Elvis Jumpsuits.

Looking at the actual economic state of many Dayaks now, one can only focus more on the younger generation. Basically our own Dayak leaders are hopeless and self-centred to the bone and would not care a shit for the rest of the Dayaks, only for ourselves to pick up the pieces. Coincidently the point I made in my earlier comments, the ever-shameless Borneo Post mentioned about the Chinese schools being favoured more by Bumiputera parents to send their kids to learn the language of business and sharpen their kids’ brain so as to master Math and Science which no one can argue. A huge blow to our Malay-centred, confused national education system indeed. This can only mean one thing for Dayaks future: enroll your kids in Chinese schools. Be multilingual, math experts, and you have yourself a human capital nobody can take away. Forget about DAMA or Elvis jumpsuits, it is education once again the final front for Dayaks, politicians or not, to promote greatly. Go for Chinese schools and learn from the Chinese to succeed in life and not whore yourself up to Ketuanan Rasuah to get easy money, civil service thrash and wasting your brain potentials to finally become a delivery boy. With our current education system it only produce the worst jobless graduates in the world, Dayaks can only turn to Chinese schools to remain relevant, brain-wise. At least one step better than Orang Asli standings.

Finally, Promote Large-Scale Donkey Farming.

No joke but really, donkey meat is one of the world’s lowest in fat and cholesterol content after boer goat meat. Just like some Dayaks, donkey possessed some important quality in life: obedience. That would be a perfect match, Dayak venture into donkey farming. Donkey feed into almost anything, including palm oil fruit, leaves and branches. A failed or loss-making palm oil plantation schemes can be easily converted into donkey farming with returns per acre of NCR lands surely better than that pathetic RM1 per acre after 15 years. Best of all, donkey is so obediently funny that it can play any musical instrument like Tusau’s sape music as per your instruction. Donkeys can only be good in following orders.

I hereby a declare a new politic of development: Politic Of Donkeys.

Interesting. Most if not all of my "dayaks friend" got nothing to fear of Taik Mammot. We got balls. But, the butts, all dayaks ministers and politicians alike never lost their balls, they got none at all. I repeat, they got none at all. And sadly when they got no balls, they became ass suckers. They suck and lick....taik mammot.
