What is KJ?

Bru Notes: The authenticity of this pic is questionable. In other words, this photograph could be doctored. Click here for the source of the picture. See also Doctored Pictures and Doctored Manifestoes.
Where was KJ? For a while, Khairy Jamaluddin was lying low. But now that he has qualified to contest for the Umno Youth's top post, which many thought not too long ago was his for the asking, the son-in-law is back to his old self.

And so, blogosphere reciprocates accordingly.

Sakmongkol AK47 has a blistering piece The Man called KJ, which answers his own question: What is it with KJ that people find so despicable? "Maybe, he is perhaps what Malaysia needs?".

Nope, says A Voice. In his latest posting here on Another Brick on the Wall, the anonymous blogger asks KJ to explain his close ties with one Tom Daniel and another Mike Thomson. The blog provides several other links to bloggers who obviously do not think that the SIL should be one of the people who would be leading Umno once Abdullah Ahmad Badawi steps down.

The fact remains, however, that KJ has got enough nominations to contest for the Umno Youth chief post. Not the MOST number of nominations, but enough.

    KJ a young up-stud, an apprentice in Malaysian politics...just happened to be in a privileged family. He is not ready to hold high position in UMNO or BN, with his arrogance and lack of understanding of a multi-racial and multi-religious country like Malaysia.
    UMNO members are just servants, ready to kiss the feet of the men in power, hence, allowing these powerful the choice of their nominee. KJ is one of them...Mukhriz is another.

    KJ could only promise disaster for Umno. After all that's why he is smuggled into Umno. It's not diffciult to feel his contribution. He helps intall 4th floor who eventually strategise for the worst defeat ever by BN in PRU12, he has proven his mettle in making Pak Lah the most unpopular PM to date. Over and above that, he has the ability to enggineer rip off business deals via temasek and khazanah but managed to hide his hands on those deals. If Pemuda Umno wants a trojan horse that will help Umno loose badly in the PRU13, then, KJ is the guy to be elected. Unfortunately, Khairy forgot that there's Mokhriz Mahathir to save the situation. Lucky Umno, you are a blessed party.

    Looks like KJ are having the same friends as Anwar Ibrahim.If he is that resourceful,then he should be elected

  8. Anonymous3:56 pm

    i dont know if that's really KJ or was captured quite far from the so-called might be another persons that look just like him.

    only KJ can tell if the picture is real or not since he's the subject that matter in the picture and not the other fellas in the whole picture.

  9. UMNO need to do an honest soul searching.

    They must remember that their chosen leaders will eventually become a major part of the national leaders.

    In my opinion, it was the mistakes of UMNO and BN leaders in implementing certain policies that gave room to ultra racist to have a field day. Now their BN counterparts are playing blaming games to the advantage of those racist.

    They must also decide whether to accept reality, and make all the necessary changes or continue with the wrong leaders and face a reality check.

    No, that's not KJ.
    ...because he doesn't drink just house wine by the carafe.No class!
    If its a Chateau Lafite on the table, then it would be him for sure!

  13. Actually what we demand is simple.


    Itu aje.

    Despite mistakes of Mahathir, we still love him dearly. Because we know he tried his best, and we know we dealt with him alone.

    No Siti Hasmah or theirs kids as running mate.

    We can accept that being a PM's kid allows you a better connection in business; as long as its being done in proper and honest manner, go ahead.

    The UMNO leaders must also work hand in hand with the group of leaders that we have chosen; bukannya listen to a group of untested with vested interest Level 4.

    This Level 4 group is the biggest joke in our history. A joke that could bleed us to death.

    Do not understand why BPR and senior UMNO leaders are still not doing anything?

    Manusia sekarang lebih takut PM dari Tuhan, and conveniently said ‘my hands are tight’

    So the likes of Najib, Muhyiddin etc must remember; we select YOU ONLY. Not your wife, your kids or SIL.

    Do not become a traitor to your own bangsa, Bangsa Malaysia.

    In the order of preference,I would prefer KJ,KT and then Mukhriz.

    UMNO needs to be jolted further and KJ is capable of doing so. Mukhriz and KT will be parrotting the same tired lines from Dr M to maintain status quo.

    We need fresh blood in Malaysian politics especially in UMNO since a lot of the young bloods are in PKR,PAS and DAP.

    If KJ win ketua Pemuda Umno, he'll get a full minister post and also can join Umno MT meeting. That's only his first.

Saya sokong KJ perbuatan dan tingkahlakunya menunjukkan sifat beliau yang sebenar-benarnya.Wahai Pemuda UMNO, undi Khairy, pemimpin masa depan yang berwawasan dan tidak hipokrit. Belanjawan 2010, cukai arak tetap tidak naik, lesen kedai arak dan bar serta pusat hiburan dilulus tanpa soaljawab. Barulah Malaysia setanding dengan negara maju, semua boleh lakukan free sex jantan betina, jantan jantan dan betina-betina. ok tu, barulah negara-negara maju sanjung kita. Hidup Khairy, cheers, Yam Seng, Kapai, hurah.

    I dunno what's wrong with some Malaysians. They are so fond of judging a person if he/she seems to enjoy life, pegi club/karaoke or if what looks like liquor is served.
    To me it's even worse if the person pretends to be warak with haj title and all tapi diam2 perangai macam hantu, siap secretly tengok porno, give/accept bribe, kaki judi, sebar fitnah.

    I guess this photo is circulate to discredit a very capable man.

    Khairy is a very intelligent and articulate young man. He will make a good UMNO Youth Chief on his own merit.
    I had the oppotunity to meet him and get to know him and find him to be a man of good standing.

    Please do not believe everything you read about him on the net. Give him a chance.If he fail then by all mean reject him.

    We are moving into a culture of running down any up and coming individuals. Whether this is good or bad, it doesn't matter. All that matters is the destruction of a character to deprive him or her a chance to prove.

    The more a person is being run down, the harder he fights.

    In this case, KJ will be fighting even harder, to the disappointment of those trying to discredit him.

    No, I am not a KJ fan but if the slogan shouters were to be the judges, then doomsday must be nearby.

    tapi kalau pemuda umno dok sokong orang macam ni nak jadi ketua, lingkuplah umno. realitinya masih ramai lagi orang melayu islam yang masih ingat asal usul dan agama. orang-orang ni tak perfect, tapi masih boleh memilih pemimpin dengan waras dan bukan wang. tapi sayang, orang-orang macam tu dah kurang sangat dalam umno.

    so tak payah nak terperanjatlah nanti kalau si kj ni menang.

  39. This posting is quite funny. Is there a concerted effort to promote Mukriz and mud Khairy?

    Reading the article on Tom Daniel and Mike Thompson, one could sense how hard this 'anonymous" blogger tries to tie Khairy as a CIA agent.

    The Man called KJ

    Sakmongkol doesn’t know khairy personally. Has seen him and maybe exchanged a few words. That’s about it.

    Sakmongkol is trying hard to understand, what is it with KJ that people find so despicable? Perhaps most people would fall into the category of the song- If I Had My Way, I’d Have Been A Killer by Nina Simone. Maybe many of you are too young to remember who the feisty Nina Simone is. But these are the feelings one may have of KJ.

    What’s our beef with KJ?

    He is young. Perhaps that assaults our own self esteem. We don’t have that pulsating energy. The rippling 6 pack on the abdomen. We are the ( to borrow the words of a famous blogger, Mat Bangkai,) boroi brigade. KJ can go to the Zouk!, while we have to be contented with the dangdut joints. Or KJ reminded us of what we could be, if we had the temerity of this young man.

    He is clever. A PPE degree from Oxford- his name will say…so and so, oxon OK. Not so and so, University of Oxford as many UMNO Joes with passable SPM would like to put on their name cards. He then went on to LSE ( if not mistaken). He is smart. That puts many of the UMNO laggards off. That quality can be unnerving to many people. And he could easily be around for a long time.

    He is articulate. That distinguishes him immediately from the dumb jock image of Hishamudin Hussein. He can fend for himself in debates or intellectual discussions.

    He is rich. Bloody rich. His people rang up people in Maran asking, how many lorries of money do you people want? Of course there’s ECM Libra, Air Asia and many more deals that KJ has immersed his fingers in. hmm, that’s nothing new in UMNO right?

    Perhaps this is the final straw. How can a person so young be so rich when we old geezers have to slug it out to make ends meet? He reminds us of our own failures and failed attempts.

    Perhaps, KJ’s early successes evoke a massive collective envy in all of us that subconsciously wishes him to fail. That of course will give us some satisfaction and vindication.

    Yes, he is brash and even insolent. He went to Permatang Pauh and declared he wanted to bury Caesar Anwar Ibrahim. But wasn’t our objective was to annihilate Anwar? He stormed the US embassy. He has been there and done that.

    He has had a personal hand in selecting candidates in the recent GE. He wanted Ismail Sabri, another chap with a girlish name in Bera, another in Jengka, in Jerantut, in Paya Besar and many more. In doing that he has broken the monopoly held so long by ageing warlords. He is seen as the usurper and all usurpers in UMNO must be stopped.

    KJ is a conspiratory character. He was responsible for bringing the OxBridge Mafia on Level 4 to advise the PM. Reminds one that in the 60s, Soekarno had his Berkeley Mafia. They lacked the finesse and wisdom to temper their hotheadedness. They forgot that being Oxbridge graduates are not everything.

    KJ represents the destruction of life as many ageing warlords have come to know and enjoy. How can they allow, a young upstart destroy lifelong achievements? Such impetuosity.

    Otherwise, we have no reason to despise KJ. Maybe, he is perhaps what Malaysia needs.

    Or maybe, he is a person, Malaysia can ill afford.

    You be the judge.

    you are brutal, vallant and yet candid in your writing. not many umno members like you can be frankly enough to counsel their peers especially those holding top positions. your posting about KJ is something that many pemudas wanted to say but do not have the courage to do so.

    Dear sir,

    He is rich. But how did he get to be that RICH?

    Obviously through the many examples you mentioned here plus many other shady deals he made under the pretext of being the PM's son in law.

    That is the main reason for all the criticisms hurled at him. All those unbridled abuse of position and power, coupled with being too flamboyant in flaunting his wealth had made him an anathema in Pak Lah's own administration.

    Apart from being clever, one needs wisdom. With so many failures in many development ideas for Malaysia (purportedly thought of by the 4th floor boys) such as the so called economic corridors and also a few election strategies that backfired (Pade Doh in Kelantan), I can safely say that all those brainy outfits in Putrajaya are nothing more than flops :)

    Thank you.

    Dear Sakmongkol,

    For the lack of better candidate, I also prefer KJ for all the reasons you mentioned to Mukhriz and Khir Toyo.Mukhriz and Khir Toyo are typical UMNO.UMNO needs a jolt and KJ can provide that.

    KJ can prevent dynasty politics from growing in UMNO with Najib already filling in his father shoes with his cousin Hishamuddin following suit (Muhyidin is just warming the seat) and if not checked, Mukhriz will be the next PM after Hishamuddin.

    KJ will raise his popularity in UMNO if he learns to be humble.

    Excellent synthesization.

    You've addressed the essence, indeed the repertoire of attitudes Malaysians have towards this prodigal character.

    I've crossed paths with several of the 4th Floor boys in my own professional endeavours. They are brash, impetuous and impatient and view themselves as the chosen sages to lead this land -- often armed with nothing more than financial textbooks and back issues of The Economist. One such kid, a hybrid, actually asked two Tan Sris and three Datuks to shut the f up during a high profile business mtg in the U.S. West Coast several yrs ago.

    Of course, chillingly, Najib has his share of these intellectual young punks as well.

    KJ is mistrusted more than disliked. With all the positives that he has - good degree, articulate, married well, etc, there's no reason why he can't go far all else being equal.

    But he is seen to be a manipulator who rides on his father in law's coattails into a position of influence, sets a personal agenda and is not above risking his benefactor's reputation being blackened in the process.

    He has no qualms about playing to the gallery by making provocative speeches, brandishing the keris or charging up a foreign embassy - all good copy but manipulations nevertheless.

    It's his ability to manipulate, even those closest to him, that make people wary.
