utusan_bangkit_melayu

Look like Utusan “Bangkitlah Melayu” headline will be making headlines in the next few days.  Al Tuguaw a popular blogger in Sarawak, in an email carbon copy to Bintulu Edition said (quoted verbatim):

“…While their boss, the erstwhile PM of Malaysia, is trying to put forward his “1Malaysia” concept, opportunistic though it may be, they are blatantly pushing a racist and racial agenda. Obviously this is both a challenge to Najib as well as a warning to the other races of this country”

Their headline today reads “Bangkitlah Melayu” and they are blaming this incitement on the “extreme” demands of the other races – how convenient! THIS IS SEDITION!

If Najib doesn’t take immediate and stern action against Utusan Malaysia, Khir Toyo and other dastardly proponents of this deadly doctrine, such form of extremism will put paid to his “1Malaysia” concept and tear this nation apart. This threatens to be more explosive than we all know what.

Any Dayak wants to fight them with “Bangkitlah Dayak”? THAT IS ALSO SEDITION!

Is this what we want? ALL Sarawakians and Malaysians should protest and declare war on all forms of racism as well, not because we favour Najib’s opportunistic doctrine or concept, but because that is the right thing to do.

And that will send a message to these feudal chauvinists that we do not tolerate such nonsense.

There are three important questions that we seek answers from you on the latest Utusan’s “Bangkitlah Melayu” headline. The trivial one is why when Utusan Malaysia shouting “Bangkitlah Melayu” they are not considered as being racist, why others are? At least their license has not been suspended so far.

Second questions – how will such a headline being perceived or received by the more moderate Malays in Sarawak and Sabah? How will the Bumiputera (a term so misleading) in both states react?

Third question – what would the non-Malay reactions to such a strong overtly racist headline? Will it negatively impaired Najib rating in months, years to come? Will it further isolate the non-Malay especially Chinese and Indians who seem to be returning to BN – albeit gradually?

We know Najib already has a plate full of problems – the economy,  by-election defeats, Perak fiasco and yesterday’s Terengganu Kite revolt. Can he afford isolating the non-Malay further – after all the talks of one Malaysia? or perhaps he has different definition of the 1Malaysia concept that we don’t share.
