"Nyah Karpal" di Rembau

update, 1.3.2008 11.20am:

UMNO Youth Courage or Ketidaksopanan?
Lawyer-blogger Jahamy, who runs Rapera, which is the latest addition to my blogroll, thinks there is need for more sophisticated methods to score political points.
Others (pls see at the end of this posting) don't agree.

Original Posting:

Anti-Karpal in Khairy's county.

Every time I balik kampung in Lubok Cina at the Melaka-N.Sembilan border about 90-min drive at legal speed on the North-South Highway from KL, I exit at Pedas-Linggi and must pass through Khairy Jamaluddin's constituency of Rembau.

You see more lembu, kambing and other binatang ternakan than you see people along the narrow and winding Fed roads of Rembau. Yesterday, I saw more angry posters and banners than people.

Even though you don't see many of them, you can tell that of late the people in Rembau do not like Karpal Singh.

They don't like him for two reasons:

1. Because he is kurang ajar and biadap to Sultan of Perak, and
2. Because he called Pemuda Umno "celaka"

Said one Khairy Jamaluddin's supporter: "Tak guno cilako Karpal tu .. Den doa biar dio mampuih!"

How much the Nyah Karpal tactic will help the son-in-law at the elections for the Umno Youth leader later this month remains to be seen, but it's clear that Karpal has succeeded in touching the hearts and minds of the Malays in the kampung and not just at Dewan Rakyat.

[Click here for more pictures]
Updates on Sunday morning:
1. Umno blogger Big Dog says Umno Youth was exercising their right, and Karpal Singh is the Real Culprit!
2. Aziz Hassan, in Here's the New Malay for you, laments the rise of Karpal apologists among the liberal Malays
3. Shamsul Yunus feels that a softly worded sarcastic remark would have done the job better in Kenapa serang Karpal yang dah nak karam?

    Orang kampung ke macai Umno yg pasang banner?

    Kenapa they dont feel as passionate for the nasib rakyat yang suffering from the slowdown, for the environment, for the education and the state of the children, progress of nation etc eh?

    What is a mere stupid word like celaka anyway? Are their actions gonna benefit the Melayu and the other honest citizens?

    Their fight is all more form than substance. Lantakla Karpal nak saman Sultan pun, Tun pun anti-raja gak dulu...let due process take place la...bukan karpal nak bunuh Sultan, nak saman je! And who lucutkan immunity raja anyway? Tak ingat??

    Sayang betul...Melayu ni masih dalam kegelapan dan kemunduran buatan sendiri - MOB MENTALITY.. all worked up by a stupid word.

  10. Anonymous7:51 am

    Yes, u r right Rocky. In a way, directly or indirectly, whether he realizes it or not, I think Karpal is helping SIL for the upcoming UMNO Youth election.

  11. sayang sekali ada orang yang menyokong ketuanan raja yang juga ketua agama Islam ini turut tidak menunaikan solat dan beberapa ibadat wajib y lain. solat dalam hati barangkali terjemahan fizikalnya ialah setia kepada raja..hurmm..

  12. Rocky,

    That's the Malays of Rembau, home of the UMNO youth leader candidate. What about other parts of the country where Malays are such as Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang, Johor, Kedah and Perlis? Are they as vocal?

    And if they want Karpal out of Tanah Melayu, will Karpal move to Sabah or Sarawak (since they are not part of Tanah Melayu, but still part of Malaysia) ?

  13. Pemuda Umno badly need a Rock Star like status politician an icon very much like Anwar to Pakatan that why between Karpal and Anwar ,Pakatan will choose Anwar and kick Karpal and his son Deo as well
    Khairy can offer to Pemuda Umno a persona like a Rock Star Status like politician , very good orator and charismatic , he doesnt have to be 100% popular but need a re brand away from PakLah and foxes like Kali & gang

  14. Anonymous8:32 am

    Alahai Abang Rocky ni.

    Terlalu berat sebelah kepada UMNO.

    Rocky tidak memahami bahawa persoalan Karpal Singh itu adalah wajar dan betul mengikut Perlembagaan dan undang-undang.

    Ingatlah juga bahawa Karpal Singh juga tidak pernah menghina, mengutuk atau menyebut sebarang perkataan keji kepada mana-mana Raja.

    Tetapi golongan UMNO yang memanggil Agong kita 'natang' tak juga disoal.

    Macam mana ni Rocky?

    UMNO ni guna bomoh mana ni untuk memperbodoh dan memesong pemikiran rakyat kampung kita, Rocky?

    Kasihan golongan kampung di Rembau.

    Kalau nak faham dengan siapa yang sebenarnya menderhaka Raja, tontonilah penerangan terperinci yang hebat ini di Dewan Rakyat Parlimen kita... baru kita faham dengan jelas siapa yang kurang ajar kepada Raja. Ini ucapan Parlimen tau, jangan main-main.

    Siti mintak tonton, dengar dan fahamilah ya. Kemudian, buat sahajalah keputusan sendiri.

  15. Bro,

    Secara tidak langsung perbuatan Karpal Singh turut membantu kempen menantu. Wajarkah Karpal Singh di siasat oleh Lembaga Disiplin UMNO?

  16. Anonymous8:37 am

    Karpal's gone out of line. Fine, people can criticize the pack of youths who "harassed" him. But how come no one's lamabasting him for his baseless accusation towards UMNO Youth.

    Whilst I don't condone such acts, I must admit that I would be freakin' pissed off if someone membuta tuli accuse me.

  17. Anonymous8:53 am

    Can't you see these are the job by Umno not by Malay in general.
    Karpal is a well respected politiician without fear and favor. He only call those suspects who are hidden in the Umno Youth "Celaka". He may even call the same in the DAP and PKR.
    Rocky, since you are with UMNO, please for Allah sake, help to change the mindset of Umno and pull them out of the Evil path. Umno is like giving to Drugs to Malay and get them addicted so that they can't live without UMNO.

    "The people don't like Karpal"???

    From the looks of the signs it's probably Khairy spending a couple of bucks to print a few signs. I don't see any evidence presented that "the people" have any involvement in this.

    Anyone can go & get some signs printed. Of course if you are UMNO then there is no need to pay the suppliers! :-)

    "the people don't like Karpal"??

    Where is the evidence? Any UMNO goon can go & get a few signs made up & stuck in the ground - with no permit of course.

    And if you are UMNO then no need to even pay the supplier! :-)

  21. Sounds like all those contesting are grasping at straws looking for anything at all to make them look like they are championing a cause! Maybe somewhere out there those who claim to be leaders of the Malays think that the only way to get the attention of their Malay constituents is when they are on the war path or something. Maybe in their reckoning the Malay psyche only requires a leader when confronted with a battle before him, otherwise the Malay does not look up to any leader. so these so called leaders have to make believe a battle or a war and that the Malays need them to lead.

    I wonder what a wannabe Malay leader would say to convince his constituents at a time of peace when there is no battle or war or perceived enemy or danger?

  23. Privileges in Parliament
    Both parties must respect
    In this august house
    Debate and argue
    The norm in parliamentary democracy

    Both parties have called ungentlemanly names
    Words and no respect throwing in
    What has it got to do with Harm Noh?
    They are part of the process too

    The political parties
    No matter what we want to say
    Scoring points seem the way
    Branding it we can’t ignore

    Law is law
    Nobody must be above it
    The Rajas and Sultans and the people
    Knowing it too
    We can be sued and counter sued
    In law as used on the land

    On the way you have seen
    Playing racist game isn’t the way
    Fight for Malaysia and Malaysians
    This is the brand we should say

    The recession and depression setting in
    Our political leaders arguing unnecessary
    Even the uniformed personnel taking sides
    On law it should be fair
    Yet you and I know the battlegrounds are different

    On Malaysia we live and die
    Sad to see racial dilemma divides
    The people of multi-racial country
    Trying to make a name
    Yet others want to pull it down

    My question is if I am a non-Malay I will surely curse at the particular royalty (must be a big royalty with motorcade and all). Why cant he stay at palace during rush hour? I am a Malay and I cursed too! To think a stretch limousine going through that already congested with small vehicles?

  35. don't be hoodwink. a poster doesn't mean it is the whole kampung more so when SIL didn't win comfortably.

    Karpal may have said a lot of things but they are within the law. if not, he will be charged. but then when UMNO T'gganu calls Natang, no one makes noise. So the folks in Malaysia and the kampung are not blind nor deaf. Those days they can be manipulated based on race and religion are almost over. They know who is taking the money and playing games.

    Now Karpal said we need 20+ UMNO youth guys to turn up at parliament? can't the UMNO Youth chief, deputy chief and Youth chief candidate defend the Youth movement? why need for violence? so this is all sandiwara and shows who is above the law and use violence to get what they want. so who will send bullets? People who follow the law or those who use violence?

    This good for nothing KJ is more of a punk and a matrempit than an Oxford educated politician. He has brought shame to all the graduates from that ivy league university.

    Kj and his childish antics were the prime reasons why his FIL has lost all respect among the voters. Pak Lah for all his shorcomings is a far better person than this oxymoron who plays the racial and religious cards in his attempt to win the UMNO YOUTH presidency.

    Sad to say he might yet win when the UMNO youths act more like braindead zombies who can be easily manipulated by self-serving politicians who do not care for the rakyat or the country.

    The country and the rakyat can go to the dogs for all they care. They are only interested in power, personal glory and the prospect of unlimited wealth ripped off the rakyat.

Right now Mukhriz is leading so the benchmark of Khairy's strategy can be measured. If he suceeded in winning the yourth post then the racist strategy works.If not,the plan just blows up in his face.Anyway, can't wait for the UMNO general assembly to see whether they have truly change.Doubt it though.

  42. Anonymous1:58 pm

    To those who want Karpal killed and to those who support this call, let me ask you this:-

    In which section of your holy book you find killing someone is condoned? UMNO Malays who portray themselves as true Muslims have very often failed to demonstrate the real values of Islam. One thing I'm very certain for now; the present approach of UMNO youth will never help Malay and Muslims to be proud of themselves or of their actions. This hooliganism and tit for tat approach is way opposite of true religious values.

  43. Anonymous3:05 pm

    Money is the root to all evils. If you have it, especially corrupted politicians, just throw a few bucks, you get a lot of willing participants soldiering their dirty works.
    Time has changed, malays are more educated, they will not be easily fooled. Otherwise, PR will not get almost half the malay support.
    OXfart Khairy is taking full advantage of these ignorant and numskull goons...the result of UMNO GE will reflect, if UMNO has grown or still living in the binatang mentality of the past.

    Seriously Rocky - just because UMNO Youth in Rembau put up a few posters means that the Malays of Rembau are angry with Karpal Singh?
    Is that a real measure of anger?
    Besides Karpal was making a comment about UMNO Youth. UMNO Youth no longer represents mainstream Malays nor any stream Malays as I see it.
    Most Malays and Malaysians are getting tired of the antics of UMNO Youth - as the party has failed to truly grasp new ideas or new realities to deal with issues really affecting Youth.
    As for sending a group of them to confront an Old Inidan guy in a wheelchair - really takes the heights of stupidity and thugerry to the mountain top.

    Start getting objective Rocky - as a journalist when did you ever find a poster as refelective of mainstream opinion?

  58. Anonymous11:58 pm


    Allow me to start my comments by saying that I follow closely the current political scenario in the country, which I find very interesting because it’s very much alive, although I must also say that I am apolitical and would prefer not to be associated with any politicians – whichever party they represent, whatever their stance.

    I think I can appreciate the antagonism of certain sectors of the rakyat against certain UMNO personalities who are seen as manipulative and corrupt – and hence, translated their feelings into votes that gave the Pakatan Rakyat more clout through the 12th GE. But at the same time, I feel it unfair to negate UMNO's significant role in nation building over the years.

    Theirs have been such immense contributions – since before Merdeka. And theirs have been contributions which have directly steered Malaysia to where we are today, in diverse sectors of development. Whatever our political bias, we cannot deny either that UMNO has played a vital role leading up to the harmonious co-existence of our multi-cultural, multi-religious, multi-racial nation, which is the envy of many countries with similar demographic make-up, yet not as successful nor as lucky as we have been in perpetuating such racial harmony.

    Allow me too to share some thoughts on a couple of matters linked to events that currently impact on our national politics, namely the controversy involving Karpal Singh and the volatile political milieu in Perak. I must confess though that mine are comments of an observer, uninitiated in politics and unschooled in political intrigues.

    While I can understand the reason for the ruckus against Karpal Singh that took place at Parlimen, I also think that such angry reaction has defeated the purpose of wanting to give the old singh what he deserves. The singh – who is actually a political bankrupt – should not have been allowed to take centre-stage for whatever reason. Actually, in spite of his numerous legal successes in cases against the government, he is actually far from being the product of excellence in studies. His law results were dismal, I was told. So, strictly speaking, he wasn’t great from the very beginning. His one ‘great’ attribute perhaps – like that of so many lawyers – is his ability to argue well. However, time and again, it has been universally proven that people who can speak well do not necessarily have excellent grey matter, nor are excellent leaders. I would think this particular singh falls under this category of mediocre performers.

    To my mind, in spite of his seemingly people-centred demeanour, the old singh and his whole family, are arrogant, ambitious folks who would demand special treatment people with humility would never think of doing.

    Once, when the older singh was hospitalized for some ailment, he demanded that he be given VIP treatment although he was not entitled to it. Apparently uncultured behaviour among family members is not restricted to parliamentary sessions. It seems that during the hospital scene, the whole family showed disrespect to authority; they were rude to hospital staff. In the end, they got their way through the quarrelsome streak.

    We have also read about his claim that “singh is king”. I guess he so much wanted to have the taste of being a monarch, and he must have been dreaming of privileges attached to being a monarch – consistent with the behaviour shown at the hospital, when insisting that special treatment be given him.

    So, I deduce that whenever the old singh makes noise about bumiputera privileges, he is not actually championing equality for the rakyat. His stance is the manifestation of his subconscious envious trait for not being born with such native privileges. That explains the hospital scene, and the recent claim to being king. Similarly, his outburst against the decision by the Perak ruler is also another manifestation of his frustration for not being born with such privileges.

    What the old singh has done and said recently depicts him as someone who should be treated like trash. Why give him the opportunity to be glorified by giving him the ammunition to throw more trash? Instead, what should be done by all peace-loving Malaysians who treasure the racial harmony enjoyed all these decades is to give him the treatment he deserves, i.e., give him a taste of his own medicine. He is not worth the two bullets given him.

    What he deserves is to have trash thrown at him as much as possible, and as often as possible, whenever possible. Why not send him trash every day? Why not make his house a dumping ground, the way trash should be dumped? Since he is so full of sh**, why not give him the sh** he deserves. Throw it at the wall, smear his compound, fertilise his garden, glaze some sh** in the driveway.

    Send him the sh** every day, and in as many ways as peace-loving Malaysians can think of. Give him all types of sh** – cattle sh**, goat sh**, chicken sh**… Why not make the culvert around his house a dumping ground as well. Since he chooses to behave the way trash behaves, then perhaps one could also use his house as the alternative dusmping ground for one’s domestic trash. The old singh is no king because the old singh stinks as trash would.

    To all the angry UMNO Youth members, my two-sen’s worth of thought – do not waste your anger on trash and sh**. They are to be treated like what you would elements of sewage, and the old singh has proven again and again that his behaviour is no different from elements of the sewage.

    Next, the Perak scene. What I can see is that the immaturity of the Pakatan government pales against the class shown by UMNO-led BN leadership through their deft political strategy tha out-manouvred the inexperienced Pakatan. Even to the unschooled mind like mine, the Speaker has obviously been getting half-baked legal advice after advice from the amateurish DAP-led legal team in the opposition government.

    Tahap keupayaan para pemimpin dan barisan penasihat Pakatan dalam menangani kemelut di Perak ibarat langit dengan bumi jika dibandingkan dengan kematangan dan kebijaksanaan barisan kepimpinan BN yang diterajui UMNO mematahkan setiap gerak langkah barisan kepimpinan Pakatan di Perak. Memang ketara, walaupun bagi rakyat yang kurang arif tentang hal-hal perundangan, bahawa barisan penasihat Pakatan berulang kali gagal melepasi saat-saat genting – bukan kerana disekat oleh UMNO tetapi akibat daripada kedangkalan mereka mendalami undang-undang sedia ada di Negeri Perak. Dan, saya tidak menyalahkan mereka kerana tempoh pemerintahan yang agak singkat tidak memungkinkan mereka mengetahui selok-belok perundangan Negeri Perak secara terperinci dan mendalam, berbanding dengan kematangan UMNO dan BN yang telah menerajui negeri Perak untuk sekian lama.
