Hishamuddin - The Arrogant Onn.
According to the NST, Hishamuddin lambasted the MCA Youth for calling on his deputy, Khairy Jamaluddin to apologise for his remarks that Barisan Nasional component parties would take advantage of a weak Umno. What is so wrong in saying minta maaf, that you have to blow your top and 'lambast'? And then Hish comes out with this classic!! "We will join ranks and meet any challenge head-on for the sake of the party and Umno Youth." What the?!? Isn't this what we call disjointed thinking? And that too, coming from the Minister of Education? Good Lord! How he managed to 'reconfigure' a simple demand for an apology into a serious challenge and threat to Umno and its Youth wing, only he and his Psychiatrist (if he has one that is) will know. However if he needs any assistance on this I suggest he talks to this guy.
As for the rest of you, here is the full NST report.
"Do not challenge us."
Umno Youth chief Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein issued this warning as he lambasted the MCA Youth for calling on his deputy Khairy Jamaluddin to apologise for his remarks that Barisan Nasional component parties would take advantage of a weak Umno. "We will join ranks and meet any challenge head-on for the sake of the party and Umno Youth."
Hishammuddin said he was angry that MCA Youth was still harping on the issue despite the existence of channels where such issues could be raised and discussed. "Khairy had said he was misunderstood and that the matter would be raised at the BN Youth meeting. What more does MCA Youth want?"
Speaking at the Umno Kuala Selangor delegates' meeting yesterday, he said the issue of an apology should not be raised as it would inflame the grassroots. He said an apology was also not necessary as Khairy was misunderstood. "But if the misunderstanding had caused some confusion, then there is nothing wrong to apologise for the confusion."
He said he had received many text messages from Umno Youth members expressing their anger over the demand for Khairy to apologise.
He said BN Youth leaders should not get emotional, including questioning the issues of Malay rights raised at Umno meetings. Hishammuddin, who is BN Youth chief, said he would call for a meeting of BN Youth to settle the row. (NST)
