How low can you go?

Even before the by-election campaign in Bagan Pinang could take off, the smear campaign towards Pakatan Rakyat took off in earnest when two books were found on each car windscreen at the 7th mile near Port Dickson. One book, entitled “Wajah Sebenar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim: Nasib Orang Melayu Selangor” (The Real Face of Tan Sri Ibrahim: The Plight of the Selangor Malays), accused the Selangor mentri besar of sidelining the Malay community in the state.

Of course many of the issues raised in the books could be considered pretty hollow as they have been brought up before in past by-elections, or even by the UMNO mouth-piece, Utusan. But then again, when a by-election that involves a former MB as its candidate is at stake, I guess someone would be desperate enough to resort to such tactics. Some of the issues mentioned are:

“They wanted People Supremacy so much after they were fooled by Pakatan Rakyat, and were willing to risk the future of their children” . [Our children's future has long since been compromised or didn't they know that. How else can you explain Hishamuddin and the likes of him in UMNO sending their kids to other countries for their higher education?]

“After ruling the state for 16 months, Pakatan Rakyat led by Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim has done a lot of things that have disadvantaged the Malays and Islam ” it adds citing, among other things, Selangor's proposal to hold elections for local councils. [Is that so bad to have elections for local councils? If it is so, then we might well do away with the general elections, the Bagan Pinang by-election and all other elections].

“If this happens almost all local councils will be controlled by the Chinese because they live in towns while the Malays live in villages,” [Er, the writer forgot about Malays living in Bukit Tunku, Damansara, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Mont Kiara, Putra Jaya and Sri Hartamas, to name a few].

The cowardly act of these people is that they dare not even print the name of the author or the publisher on the books. They even alleged that PAS has become a puppet to the Chinese in DAP and PKR. [To put it simply, these fellas just don't understand the concept of consensus-building because they are so used to bullying the other component parties in the BN]..

Since they could not come up with any new issues, they resorted to recycling photos of Elizabeth Wong as well [As though anybody cared! A bunch of perverts, that's what they are.]

In the book about Anwar, one line read : “Anwar accused the NEP as unfair for sidelining the Chinese and the Indians, which means he is not happy to see the Malays becoming as successful as the Chinese,” [*sic*]

Despite all these, that partyless cow head Murugiah has the audacity to issue warnings to the opposition not to raise the Shah Alam cow head issue during the campaign. This also include the ban on the use of the word "Altantuya". How much more democratic can you get? But knowing how creative the opposition is [always thinking outside the box], I believe they can overcome this constraint.
