But then again, when has UMNO/BN ever been ashamed of anything that they have done, no matter how wrong?
One wonders why they were so desperate to stage such a shameful and ugly spectacle in front of the whole world, even to the extent of using plainclothes Special Branch police and possibly even army personnel to forcibly remove the Speaker from his chair.
Black is now officially a banned colour in Perak and will soon be removed from the Perak state flag and other official insignias. Not too long ago, even the colours yellow and orange were banned, now black. Malaysia must be the only nation on earth to have colour police. Totally ridiculous and absurd.
Do they seriously think that by doing what they did in Perak this will endear the people to them? Or perhaps they still believe that they can continue to intimidate and oppress the very citizens from whom they derive their claim to legitimacy? Perhaps the citizens don't matter anymore that they can so blatantly abuse all notions of decency?
Doesn't Najib realize that he is making a mockery of his own words? His regime is going to be the laughing stock of the whole world no matter what spin the UMNO/BN-controlled media are going to put on it.
So much for Najib's "1Malaysia". Obviously "1Black Malaysia" is more apt.
Why is UMNO/BN so intent on committing political suicide? Is it so impossible for them to keep the police and the civil service focussed on the real priorities instead of being so irresponsibly involved in matters which they should remain neutral about?
But partisanship is what they are all about, so much so that even the Election Commission, the Anti-Corruption Commission and various other supposed independent bodies have become nothing more than illegitimate adjuncts of discredited governance. They have abused public trust to such a great extent that their very legitimacy is now in question.
The civil service has gone to great lengths to show us all how uncivil and brutish they are. Who pays their salaries if not the taxpayers? They are now no longer the people's "servants" but their masters. They deal with the people's representatives as they please and are so openly hostile to a legitimate state government that they conspire publicly with so many parties, including royalty, the judiciary and the police to bring that government down illegally and violently. This is a coup d'etat under any other name.
At the rate Najib is going, his regime has lost all credibility and right to govern this country even faster than Pak Blah did. At least Pak Blah was merely sleeping on the job. Najib is a sleep walkabout nightmare in broad daylight. Who believes anything he says anymore, least of all himself?
Sarawakians, how did we ever let these Malayans and their partners in crime, Taib and his evil regime, control our resources and our destinies? Just like Sabah, Sarawak is nothing more than a fixed deposit to them, which that idiot Abang Jo, eunuch traitor to the people of Sarawak, has confirmed, our resources theirs to raid anytime they feel like it.
Expect the UMNO/BN gang-rape of the country and all its institutions and democratic principles to continue until GE13. Sarawakians may get an earlier crack at escape come 2010 or 2011.
Time to break free!
Sarawakians for Sarawak!
