"When tension rises, the blood of Malay warriors will run in our veins," claims an Umno wimp!
First, a totally untalented and intellectually questionable, humble party underling, Ledang Youth chief Mohd Zan Abu, makes a sanguinary statement about defending Malay rights with the usual sub-50 IQ prattle: "We should defend it (Malay rights) to the last drop of our blood!" Will someone show this half twit the way to the nearest blood bank please. At least there he can put his blood to good use instead of engaging in shameless bluffology while at the same time attempting to sacrifice the sanity of some hemophobic Umno pahlawan.
Then came to the speaker's podium the highly ambitious and extremely envious (of KJ) resident wimp of Umno Youth, the effeminately good looking Youth information chief Azimi Daim. With a clueless look and deportment he said that 'he could not understand why component parties were becoming braver in questioning sensitive issues.' Of course what he was implying is that "we've had it our way all these years and now these BN eunuchs have dared to start questioning us and therefore they must be stopped." His was a two-pronged attack. One on the BN upstarts and the other on KJ's father-in-law, the PM for relaxing and easing up on Mahathir's dictatorial muzzling of criticism. Azimi has never forgiven KJ for beating him to the vice-chairman's post which he firmly believes is his by right and was unfairly robbed from him by KJ's machinations.
Therefore this scorned wimp is capable of raising the stakes in this potentially dangerous race baiting game. And sure enough he did with an emotion grabbing, "when tension rises, the blood of Malay warriors will run in our veins!" It is a statement calculated to provoke even the most docile of Malays. In terms of ratings it potentially ranks up there with Khir Toyo's immortal 'Semuanya OK' and Khairy's 'Maruah Bangsa.'
So the sandiwara continues today and let us see what transpires. As far as the PM's address is concerned it was statesmanlike and not really controversial or confrontational. The same however cannot be said about the others who will be speaking later. The riff-raff haven't been heard yet.
