Why are there people like Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Azmin Ali, and Zuraida in government? Why are Najib, Zahid, Isa Samad, Azeez, and a host of other despicable individuals once holding high public office and members of the Malaysian Cabinet, why are they now facing trial for money laundering, corruption and abuses of their high office for personal financial gains? Why are family members of ex-Prime Minister Najib Razak and his wife, Rosmah Mansor, facing trial on other criminal and civil misdeeds? Why is politics in Malaysia such a dishonorable vocation that we look upon politicians with contempt, disgust, and loathing?
Did Botak Chin, Betong Kali aka Kalimuthu s/o Pakirisamy, and all the Heavenly Kings Triad Bosses whose “business” involved prostitution, drugs, night clubs, gambling, and extortions….and all the other things that these gangsters did in their lifetime of crime….did they all put together, stole more than what politicians already have? These thieves, robbers, and gangsters steal in the millions of ringgits. Politicians steal in the hundreds of millions of ringgits. In the billions of ringgits.
We all now know that the biggest thieves Malaysia has ever known are politicians. The vilest of scammers and robbers are politicians. And they do so protected by PDRM, the Judiciary, and MACC. We know that Botak Chin, Betong Kali, and the Heavenly Kings Triad Bosses are thieves but there is still honor even among thieves. They meet their end courageously and never sought to hide what they do under any veneer of respectability or legality as these politicians do. Not these vile politicians. These vile politicians insists that they do their stealing, thieving, and scamming in the name of race, religion, and government.
Did what Mona Fandy do in murdering a politician worse than what Rosmah Mansor has done in stealing hundreds of millions from the nation’s coffers? What Romah did have deprived the nation out of hundreds of millions of ringgits that should have been used to alleviate poverty among the poor, educate the young to be good, decent citizens, and provide much-needed infrastructure to develop our nation. What Rosmah did in stealing those millions affected thousands of Malaysians. The hideous murder that Mona Fandy committed shocked us all but it affected only a few Malaysians. What Rosmah Mansor has done affected many thousands of Malaysians adversely.
Is Najib Razak any better than any of the Heavenly Kings Triad bosses? The Heavenly Kings steal in the millions. In the hundred of millions maybe. Najib steals in the billions. The Heavenly Kings take care of their family and their “own people” ..not Najib. His wife, children, brothers, and even mother are implicated in what he has done. What honor is there in people who do these kinds of things. At the very least Najib should have sheltered his mother from the proceeds of his crimes and stealing!
How many people have Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin betrayed in his climb up the ladder? TSMY has betrayed the people of Johor when he was a corrupt Johor MB. TSMY betrayed Pak Lah by stabbing Pak Lah politically in the back when he asked Pak Lah to resign in favor of Najib. This he did when Pak Lah regarded him as a trusted confidant in Pak Lah’s government. He betrayed Najib and Umno when he was DPM. And of course he betrayed Tun, PH and the people of Malaysia who voted him and PH into government when he schemed and plotted to form his back-door government? Who else has TSMY betrayed? Is that not enough?
And what of Azmin Ali and Zuraida? It is enough for me to say that with TSMY, these three are the axis of evil much despised, loath, and held in contempt by many many Malaysians. Their end will soon come at the hands of Umno and Pas if not at our hands in the coming GE not too far away.
Why are the worse of Malaysians and the dregs of society in Malaysia in politics? They are in politics for two things: For power and for money. Politics has become what it is today for also two reasons. One is Umno and the other reason is that there are people whose political survival depends on money and power. You cannot have corruption and money politics without the people who not only make it possible but also the people who are the perpetrators of this despicable culture that now exist in Umno and lately, Pas. Today you have that culture within Umno and Pas and in other political entities. And more important to the survival of that vile culture, today you also have the people who have been brought up in that culture of thieving and stealing and these people are the very people who not only allow this vile culture to thrive but they will also nurture and encourage this vile culture to thrive and exists for their very survival depends on it.
And so in Umno and Pas today….in Malaysian politics today…the culture of corruption has taken roots and people like TSMY, Azmin and Zuraida are the latest cadres of vile politicians who have benefitted from it and are now doing all they need to do to ensure its continued healthy and vigorous growth for they now need it more than ever for their own political survival. So this culture of corruption feeds upon itself and continues to grow from strength to strength in Malaysian politics.
What are we to do about it? There is nothing else we can do but stop it. In any way which way we can we need to stop this vile culture before it takes away what dignity is left in our people. Before it consigns not only the present but also the future of Malaysia and Malaysian to the depths of corruption that Umno, Pas, and too many Malaysian politicians have already sunk too. Before this TSMY’s back door government is replaced by a more insidious, more corrupt, and more decadent government that is even now lurking in the shadows in Putrajaya! We must all embolden each other to do this task. We must all be together to watch each other back and above all, we must succeed. To fail is to have another axis of evil govern us and that will surely herald the coming of Armageddon for all things Malaysians!
