Opposition Politics Becoming Dirtier, Says Najib

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said Malaysian politics was degenerating to a level of being dirty with the opposition using slander and statutory declaration to achieve their political objectives.

The Deputy Prime Minister said the opposition was inclined to make fools of the rule of law and politicise cases currently being tried in court to change people's perception towards government leaders.

"I mention this as a principle, meaning if we love our country we must realise that to build a country like Malaysia is not something easy. Don't we do something that can destroy what we have done.

"Secondly, the rule of law is very important. Don't we talk about law of the jungle and so on but we ourselves are not practising it," he told reporters here Saturday.

Najib said slander was not something new in politics but the information technology era has enabled slander to spread wider and quicker. (You can read the full report at Bernama)

***** While there is some truth to the DPM's statement, one cannot ignore the fact that the ruling coalition, especially Umno, has been actively practising the dirty politics business for decades. In the process they have polarized the different ethnic groups, 'balkanized' the nation through their tempatan version of divide and rule, assiduously cultivated the loyalties of certain target groups by preying on their fears and inadequacies, pandered to their superficial needs, lowered their pride and self-esteem and encouraged a false, permanent and dangerous sense of entitlement.

Surely Umno and their leaders should not be the ones to complain now. They forfeited that right long ago when they actively engaged in dirty politicking for their own selfish ends.

What is the difference when PR leaders mostly come from BN as well. Isnt it the same? The number one thing will always hold tue about the Opposition is they will never let go of their opposition attitude. The so called peaceful demo is such a perect example! Is that reall the best solution for the rakyat's problem? Wake up and smell the coffee PR! You govern 5 states now, when are you people going to slack off the opposition mindset??
