Racist Blabber At Umno General Assembly. BN Leaders Say Semuanya OK!

As expected Barisan National leaders rallied behind the Prime Minister after a few senseless buffoons made racist speeches at the Umno General Assembly which unfortunately for Umno was live telecasted, thereby making it very difficult for their pemimpin to deny. But disown the rabid utterances, they did in style, with Najib even 'leaving' it to the 'authorities' to take action against the loudmouths. (I wonder who these unnamed 'authorities' referred to by Najib are?) So sparing the Umno leadership more discomfiture, BN leaders led by Samy Vellu came up with the following semuanya ok statement.

MIC President Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu Thursday said that Barisan Nasional (BN) component party leaders had accepted Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's clarification on the controversial remarks made by some delegates at the just-concluded Umno General Assembly.

Samy Vellu said that BN leaders, including MCA President Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting, Gerakan President Datuk Seri Dr Lim Keng Yaik and Information Minister Datuk Seri Zainuddin Maidin and a few other ministers had raised the issue at the Cabinet meeting Wednesday.

"We accepted the Prime Minister's explanation and concurred that we will continue to work together as usual," he told reporters after chairing a MIC Central Working Committee meeting at the party's headquarters here Thursday.

Samy Vellu said that ministers from Umno, including Minister in the Prime Minister Department Datuk Seri Mohamad Nazri Aziz and Culture, Arts and Heritage Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim had also aired their views on the matter.

"In the end, we agreed that we must look after the interests of all the people in the country. Three or four speeches made at the assembly can result in racial problems if they are not taken care of," he said.

Samy Vellu said that mutual respect was needed among the races and the stand was conveyed to the Prime Minister. "I believe with his vast knowledge and experience, the Prime Minister knows how to resolve the problem," he said.

When asked about the Prime Minister's clarification at the Cabinet meeting, he said, "Its better you ask the Right Honourable Prime Minister himself."

On the Cabinet decision on live telecast of political parties annual general assemblies, Samy Vellu said a number of ministers felt that it was "damaging the future. No need. I personally feel it's not necessary. This is dangerous," he added.

Those buffoons will come on stage again in the coming UMNO annual general assembly and play their acts of hurting the feelings of other races. After all they are good for nothing and their minds totally devoid of any issues concerning the well being of the country. The top leaders must do their part by stopping this to happen again. It is too late once the brainless talk has been uttered. The damage is irreparable.

Sigh....I suppose this is not the first time advice from the top leaders of UMNO. Year in year out they shouted abt the same things, waving and kissing the same kris, threatening other races with the 513 incident,...

The only way to stop them repeating these is to stop them from being the 'big-head'. Get rid of them.

PM in Sabah warned the chinese papers not to raise racial sentiment by reporting the UMNOputras' true color, I just wonder why the PM accusing the papers instead of his own members? Are the papers reporting the truth? Remember who did say: "Tell me the truth?"

Racist or not, the moron of the moment is probably right as far as equal rights go. There is a little bit of wishful thinking on the part of non-malays in Malaysia if they think they will ever have equal rights in Malaysia. The fact(painful)IS that UMNO will never surrender the preferential treatment the Malays receive today as they are to dumb to realize that if there were equal rights then Malaysia will potentially be more prosperous and those who would benefit the most from government aid would be the poor Malays, Chinese and Indians - people who need it most. Of course , this would mean that dim witted bumiputra businessmen, students and officials will not have preferential treatment anymore.The same will go for the Malay man on the street who will be dealt with the same cards as his non-Malay peers. Do you think for one second the bumiputras will give this up?
