who are you going to vote for during this coming election? MIC? MCA? gerakan? PP? if you do, then be warned that it means your vote goes to UMNO! that’s right. UMNO. we are in a UMNO controlled country, remember? all those MPs in MIC, MCA, gerakan always kow-tow to UMNO, so do not vote for them. a vote for them, is a vote for UMNO. we had seen how UMNO run the country and it’s time we say we have enough!
ok i’m sure you would say "aiya. the BN will win one lah." fine, if you believe so but we can deny BN the 2/3 majority, if we all do not vote for BN! deny them the 2/3 majority to send a signal to them that we are fed up with them already.
the diagrams belows are taken from kennny law’s blog, speaks for themselves.
why we don’t want UMNO? we do not want UMNO because UMNO incites racial sentiments. as gerakan member s. paranajothy said on 21 dec. 2007.
read further… the reasons are all here:
In an audacious move, a notable Gerakan politician has taken Barisan Nasional coalition leader Umno to task for inciting racial sentiments among Malays to gain political mileage.
“They incite racial sentiments among their community in a petty attempt to further their political career,” Gerakan Youth vice-chief S Paranjothy alleged today.
Such attempts, he said, include taking potshots at other BN component parties which draw their support from non-Malay communities.
“Umno leaders are very found of picking on component parties and use them as their punching bag or stepping-stone to gain popularity in their community,” Paranjothy said in a hard-hitting four-page statement entitled ‘Discrimination from Womb to Tomb’.
He singled out Umno Youth chief Hishammuddin Hussien’s keris waving and his deputy Khairy Jamaluddin’s claim that non-Malays would take advantage of a weak Umno leadership, as prime examples of racial posturing.
He also cited Khairy’s speech at the Umno general assembly last month, during which heblamed newspaper vendors for not wanting to work on Deepavali day. He made a pointed reference to the fact that the sector is predominated by Indian Malaysians.
(Each year, the print media takes a break during the major festivals. This year, Deepavali fell during the week of the Umno general assembly, and there was no publication on the day following the delivery of the presidential address.)
“Umno is fond of playing up sensitive issues among Malaysians. Statements and decisions made by Umno politicians have been (discriminatory) and contain a lot of racial slurs. So who is playing racial politics in Malaysia?… So who is causing racial disunity?” asked Paranjothy.
He warned that national unity would be elusive as long as political parties and politicians continue their communal approach towards politics.
“Politicians always feel (they) must fight for (their) own party. Since we have mostly ethnic parties, they are fighting for their ethnic group. It is difficult to achieve any kind of consensus.”
He stressed that the 14 BN component parties must consolidate into a single party in order to “end racial manipulation in politics”.
“In a multiracial party, if a politician wants to succeed, he would need to prove his ability and win support from all races, not just his own,” he explained.
On the government’s hardline stance against public demonstrations, Paranjothy said the government has practised double-standards in the issuance of police permits.
“I have participated in street demonstrations and rallies organised by Barisan Nasional Youth, spearheaded by Umno Youth, to handover a memorandum… over certain issues that had taken place (abroad) which I believe would not have benefitted Malaysia.
“Did BN Youth obtained a permit to hold the rallies or demonstrations?… Looks like the government is one-sided when it came to the issuance of permits for public gatherings. BN started this culture of street demonstrations and now others have emulated it.”
