BN's wakeup call - repercussions of being in power too long!

All of us know that the BN has been in power far too long for it's own good. 50 years of the same old mindsets and refusal to listen to the grassroots is what caused the BN to be finally toppled from its former stronghold states like in Penang, Perak, Selangor and Kedah.

Gerakan, an Opposition party founded by mostly Straits Chinese came into power in Penang since 1969 and merged with the Alliance party (now BN) to form the State Government.

After 36 years of continuing to be in power, Gerakan was recently routed by the DAP-PKR-PAS Barisan Rakyat Coalition and sent packing into history!

The DAP has finally succeeded in achieving it's lifelong dream of forming the State Government of Penang and Lim Guan Eng, it's Secretary-General is now the new Chief Minister of Penang, a position which his father had wished for all his life!

PKR is now with the DAP as the new State Government of Penang.

Congratulations to the people of Penang for having it in them to vote for change. Things won't change for us Malaysians until and unless we go and change it ourselves.

See what we can do if we just follow our hearts and go vote for change?

Among the reasons why people weren't happy with the BN?
  • Extremely brutal and violent FRU and PDRM handling of peaceful protests by the people!
  • Dismissive attitudes by the BN Coalition party leaders such as the arrogant manner by which both UMNO and MIC members acted as if the public are stupid and need not be given explanations as to why certain issues or matters need to be clarified by the BN government?
  • Mountains of corruption and criminal cases left unattended and at times obviously proven corrupt crooks in the BN have been somehow found to be 'squeaky clean' as in the cases of Eric Chia and the Perwaja steel mill case and many others?
  • VK Lingam's judicial fix up case still is being given the runaround by the so called Royal Commission?
  • Altantuya Shaariibu's murder case continues to be 'ninja'ed by the 'just tease' system?
  • 'Denial syndrome' well and alive in the BN leadership ; they really seriously think that they are sin free?
  • Classic case just take a look at how Mahathir keeps saying that he's is innocent of all charges and that he has done no wrong all those 22 long years that he was terrorizing the nation? MOTHER OF ALL DENIALS! Grrrrr....!
  • Samy Vellu's claims to have done so much for the Indians who in reality have been suffering like hell from neglect of the ones who were supposed to take care of them especially the ones from the MIC who ignored them all these years?
  • I can keep going on listing the years and years of the BN tyrannical terrorizing of the Malaysian people in all areas and the continuing mockery of justice that takes place under the BN government what more under the regime of the blundering Abdullah Badawi?
  • To cap it off , seeing how an UMNO Youth leader was abused, humiliated and dragged out of the MYKMU UMNO Forum just for mentioning Anwar's name simply hit the last nail into the BN's political future's coffin?
The BN has lost it's place in the Malaysian grassroots hearts and it is just a matter of time before the whole BN machinery grinds to a halt and the whole coalition come apart at the seams and implode, vanishing into the political nether lands!

Power corrupts! Absolute power has corrupted the BN for one reason and one reason mainly which is being in power too bloody long for their own good?

Brace yourself for the avalanche of the Malaysian people's power which is building up strength day by day in the Malaysians hearts and charging up their passions into a raging dynamo of energized storm of unbridled emotions that is going to scorch the BN and pulverize the aging behemoth into nothingness in the next GE!

The BN is now facing the political repercussions for its half a century of denying Malaysians their proper places in this country and for its failure in according to the people what they have been robbed of all these years?

Its like the chickens have come home to roost for the BN.

It does seem to Be the End for the BN!

Dear Mahaguru,

I am not sure how to judge you.

You rejected Hindraf's rally initially even went to the extent of asking Indian youths what they think of the rally. This is before the Election.

Post election your stand have changed you start to praise Makkal Sakthi and on the above article you claim MIC neglected the Indians.

Are you a two faced Malaysian or opportunists who side the winning side?

But if the current face is your real face i support you and your struggle.

Regards,
Nantha

Dear mysterious Nantha,

I am a Muslim who got pissed off at the way Hindraf's leaders issued their anti-Islam statements calling us extremists, terrorists, etc.

Unlike many of you who hide behind pseudonyms, I put up my face upfront and even publish my email and handphone number right here in my blog.

I did the video interview to ask a Malaysian Hindu as to what he thought about the street protests and in fact asked those who aren't happy with the BN to exercise their choice to vote for change through the polls instead of taking to the streets to protest and demonstrate?

See what has happened when Malaysians used their votes to effect change?

The BN lost in 5 states and many Parliamentary seats here in the KL Federal Territory!

I feel pity for the average Indians suffering as a result of the BN's neglecting them but I also am a strong advocate of self improvement.

I am as I am and not dependent on any bloody government contracts or what to make my living so don't you go stating anything like that!

I don't give a shit either to any political positions!

I earn my own keep and am only voicing out the obvious.

HINDRAF's leaders screwed up by taking to street protests.

If they had instead went about fighting their cause through the legal system (whatever little is available of it) and stood for elections legibly, the Malaysian Indians might have their representation in government by now instead of having to lose their 5 leaders to the ISA?

We Muslims have nothing to do with your Indians sorry state of affairs!

It is UMNO, a Malay nationalist racist party and your kowtowing ass licking MIC idiots who have screwed the Indians!

It is the BN that dealt so brutally with the Hindraf protesters using their FRU and Police security apparatus!

Islam has nothing to do with your plight!

That's the reason why I was pissed off with the way HINDRAF's leaders issued their now missing statement?

I was asking the Indians who weren't happy with the BN to vote for those whom they liked instead of battling the FRU on the streets of the cities of this country!

My struggle is to see Islam not be placed together with the racist stances of UMNO!

I don't care about race or ethnic origins!

If you are able to , go read up my articles where I take to task even those Indian Muslims who masquerade as Malays and create havoc for all of us as they did in the UMNO Penang protest at Komtar?

It makes no difference to me whether anyone supports me and my causes.

All I care about is to see that justice is upheld in our country and that my efforts are blessed by the Almighty?

To me, all Malaysians deserve a better future and to me I am all for the Barisan Rakyat to be the next Federal Government of Malaysia!

Hindraf leaders ought to work together with the BR to build a better future for all Malaysians and stop attacking Islam and the Muslims for the crimes of the racist BN!

I am not working my way towards a political future so it makes no difference to me as to whether you or anyone else thinks I have vested interests in supporting the Pakatan Rakyat as they are called now?

Just like you and millions of other Malaysians, I am all for change and by Allah I am writing for the good of the nation just as any Malaysian Blogger is?

So there you have it!

Let everyone know that Mahaguru58 is only looking out for Islam and fighting to see a better Malaysia for all of us?

That is my agenda. Comprende?

It is very saddening to note that Pakatan Rakyat members DAP and PAS are going at each other via the MSM. I just watched how the idiotic newscaster from TV3 gloated that the newly formed Pakatan Rakyat is already showing signs of breaking up.

Please, YB Karpal Singh and YAB Nik Aziz Nik Mat, keep your quarrels within the four walls of Pakatan Rakyat. The last thing we need is for you guys to go to the MSM and wash your dirty linen in public. Talk it over in the spirit of Pakatan Rakyat.

The 4th Floor Boys will be more than happy to use any disagreement within the Pakatan Rakyat and blow it out of proportion in the MSM that is subservient to the BN regime. If this is to be compared to a boxing match, the BN's legs are beginning to wobble and it is on the ropes. We don't need to wait for another five years for regime change. It can happen at any time. Poor Badawi is completely clueless as to what is happening around him. The poor guy is now on a witch hunt blaming sabotage by UMNO members for the BN's poor showing in the just concluded GE. Wake uplah, Pak Lah! It ain't got nothing to do with any sabotage. The people were just fed up with you, your SIL, UMNO and the racist agenda of BN. Brother, just leave us alonelah. Gooooo awaylah! Stop blaming others for the BN's poor showing. Be a gentleman and just leave! WE DON'T WANT YOU NOR NEED YOU. MALAYSIA WILL BE BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU, UMNO AND BN.

It is time for Pakatan Rakyat to take stock of the current situation and deal the knock out punch to the pathetic BN. Before you can do this, please talk over your differences within the four walls of Pakatan Rakyat and pleeeease stop making statements to the MSM about your differences. Go for it guys, Putrajaya is yours' for the taking!

Mahaguru,

This is what my Malay-Muslim friend told, " You got to separate and differentiate being Malay of race and Muslim by itself."

When I separated it, I can see clearly. If I see Muslim alone who hold their religion dearly without being fanatic, they are indeed kind souls. When I see Malay alone, they are equally humble.

However, when you put Malay-Muslims together in Malaysia context,the non-Muslims immediately sum up and call them racist and extremist!

This scenario, thanks to BN's divide and rule systems, creates much confusion among the Malaysians and struggling the see between the lines.

Sad isn't?

The Muslims in Malaysia are generally peaceloving folks and usually mind their own business as they live out their life's.

The problem is when racist tendencies are propagated by the ruling BN where they pitch the Malays against the others using the bangsa, agama and negara card!

'Bangsa' is racist in nature so 'agama' gets sabotaged same time and the 'negara' suffers!

It's not easy to change the people's mindset Laura but eventually we can do it by persevering as best as we can?
