And when you believe ardently in your own words, you can't (or won't ) see the contradictions.
When Najib first became the Pm courtesy of a party coup that ousted his predecessor Badawi, he gave birth to the 1Malayisa child but he failed as a father.
He allowed the child to be crippled and he did nothing to defend it against racist attempts to strangle it.
He just sat and watched even as the sound bites against the unfortunate child became more and more strident.
He even defended his trusted deputy who had defamed the poor child by defiantly declaiming that he (the deputy) was firstly a Malay, and only secondly a Malaysian.
Ah Jib even allowed the fellows who had happily attacked the poor 1Malaysia sod by their constant strident racist sound bites, to stand as candidates in GE13.
And Ah Jib would still have us believe that the child is still alive and kicking.
Yes, kicking the bucket
Now that the GE13 results don't look so encouraging to him, Najib tried to blame it on the Chinese. Then thought of national reconciliation.
But the very next day, he came out to defend Utusan ("The Toilet Paper" to some) for their incendiary article against the Chinese
Now he says that the Chinese had been taken for a ride and blames DAP for trying to hoodwink them.
See how Ah Jib talks.
Tomorrow we might hear Hyde speaking, or should it be Jekyll?
Whatever, the Chinese just want to remind him that they are not as dense as Ah Jib Kor who thinks that everyone is as dense as he is.
We are not so easily taken for a ride, otherwise how have we been able to manage and still succeed without help from him or his benevolent Barisan government.
We just want to vote a government that we think is not corrupt, that we feel will treat all its citizens fairly, irrespective of race, colour, creed or religion and protect their rights equally.
A government that works for the benefit of all its citizens and not just for the interests of a privileged coterie of connected families, hangers-on, cronies and nominees and party apparatchiks.
A government that we feel will not compromise the agencies and institutions of the state.
A government that can ensure that it runs the nation's economy responsibly without also running it to bankruptcy.
A government that can ensure equal opportunity to all and make us feel safe and not tell us that the spike in crime rate is merely a perception.
A government that.......
Najib, fill in the blanks.
But please make certain that they make sense.
And while you are at it, Najib, take a look at the crowds
Also take a look at the picture here and maybe think about the suggestions too
And take a look too at the video from Malaysia Chronicle
They all look Chinese to me.
And if you have the time, Sir, also read this lovely piece on the significance of the event, by J.D Lovrenciear which I cite in full below
Malaysia Chronicle Mailbag
Indeed the very sight of a packed stadium of Malaysians of all races dressed in black should be sending a power-packed message not only to the BN power grabbers but to the whole wide world too. Here is a world class example – Malaysian style, of citizens of all ethnic origins gathering on their own volition to express in a disciplined, peaceful manner that they will not take the reported unfair and fraudulent General Elections lying down.
