Politics of terror


Updated 8/3:
Umno and PAS did declare war but NOT against non-Malays
Preparing for Guan Eng's war by Life of Annie


Original piece 6/3:
Utusan says Guan Eng needs to be responsible

Frightening. If Dr Mahathir Mohamad's Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng was correctly attributed in the Malaysiakini headlines above, you are right to fear for the children. Yes, racially and religiously insensitive politicians do not reside only in DAP but this one is trying to pull down Malaysia - Baharu or not - to a new, shitty lho.   
Guan Eng knew this so he quickly corrected himself ...
 
But if he thought he'd done damage-control by swapping "WAR" with "TARGET", he must really think we're all idiots. The amendment does little, if anything at all, to reduce the terror (Wee: Lim's "declaration of war" statement is inflammatory) of the message. And the resultant anger and despair of anyone reading it. If anything, it just reaffirms his original intent. 
So, will Dr M take his Minister to task?

Flashback h e r e 
Most likely NOT. It took the former Umno president many decades to admit he was wrong about the DAP. One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch, girl [give it one more time before you give up on love :-]. Plus, Dr Mahathir needs their support more than ever now.
