The Malays are not ready for PM Najib’s liberalisation policies
Bigdog heads off his post. And why does he believe so? Well, Mahathir too says so.
Well, I guess if you are one of the beneficiaries of UMNO's policies than of course you got to be weary about anything that undermines the assumptions upon which those policies are sustained. I can understand that Mahathir is forever on the watch for anyone who might call his lie and I can understand why he would not want liberalisation of the kind Najib appears to be introducing because it may soon actually begin to reveal to the Malays that they may have been living a lie after all from Merdeka and more so since the early 1970s.
It is not so UMNO. After all there are many wannabes in UMNO who have not gained anything at all. But there are the lot of the hangers on whose entire being is sustained on the perpetuation of that myth about the Malays. and if there are any successful Malays they have to be able to show their success to UMNO's intervention in their lives.
How wrong and how false. No sir. Its no compliment to all the Malays I have come across. Certainly not true of the honest taxi driver or the honest businessman who has made it thanks to his own honesty and acumen. Certainly it is not true of he many medical specialists that many of us have referred to. Yes, me too, for a repiratory problem that I had I saw a specialist. A Malay specialist. And when my Cardiologist friend from Sweden needed to see such a doctor for his son's ailment, I took him there too. to this Malay specialist. And my Swedish friend whose wife is a paedetrician, came out praising him.
Well, the rest below is what I commented in Bigdog's posting! I don't normally do this, but I have copy pasted from that post here because if it is cleverly edited I can be made to sound rather racist. So, I might as well have it posted here as well in my blog which they will not be able to do anything about. Woof!! woof!!:

Yes! I agree with you the Malays will never be ready for the kind of liberalization that Najib appears to have unleashed on the Malays. This is certainly going to mean the little that they have come out of the shell, has gone to waste as they will now all recede right back to where they feel very safe. Just like tortoises and all those shell fish.
Yes the Malays have got to be repeatedly told that they need the handicap that they possess otherwise the non-Malays like this writer will only take easy advantage of them. It is just not possible for the Malays to move up life's social and economic ladder without all that they have had over the last 51 years!
The Malays have to ask, what were they before Merdeka. Better still, what were they before 1970? Yes, they were Javanese, Sumatrans, Bugis, Minagkabaus, Tamils, Malayalees, Siamese, Yunanites, Kelatanese, Patanese and what have you.
Yes, it was the constitution that brings them all together as one. Its not because they are of any common genetic stock. No sir. Its not biological. It is a political notion and an idea. And the Malays owe it to this idea and they owe their existence and their privileges and handicaps to that idea. If it had been biological, then Malays would have had wings, and they'd have bionic limbs and eyes and ears and they'd all be singing and dancing like Michael Jackson as wished so for them by UMNO!!
Yes, that is what UMNO would like you all to think. UMNO would like all Malays to think and to believe that they are indeed handicapped. That it is UMNO that equalises for them the unfair advantage that the others are supposed to have because of some God manufactured distortion that just happened to them.
Yes, that is what UMNO assumes when making its position known. It is the position that UMNO takes of its flock. It is the position that UMNO sees as the only justification for its existence.
This is the position and the assumption that has to exist in order to validate Mahathir and his thinking and his policies. Remove these assumptions about Malays and everyone would see Mahathir's lie. Mahathir himself will see how valueless he really was over his 22 years as the premier. Does that explain for you why Mahathir is aghast about this liberalisation of Najib's?
Not too long ago I gave Mahathir till the year end before he begins demonising Najib like he did Badawi. It now looks like at least Badawi had more than a 100 day honeymoon before he saw Mahathir's venom. Can someone tell the old man to just go to hell?
Hey, I am not anti-Malay. I am more sympathetic really. Sympathetic because there are a lot of them out there who actually believes the bullshit that UMNO espouses to them about them. I cannot believe any of the attributes that arise out of the assumptions about Malays apply to people like the host of this blog or Rocky or any number of my Malay friends whose personality, and whose individuality I can only envy and be proud that they would count me as a friend.
