Although more people had turned out for the Bersih 4 rally than the last one, and even Mahathir himself had showed up in support, the lack of Malay participants by percentage was not only disappointing but has also probably given the wrong signal to the government of Ah Jib who can now gloat by claiming that the Malays did not support Bersih and its demands and that it was only the Chinese who
are being troublesome.
If the Malays do not want change or fear it or if they believe in the dUMNo hogwash promoted no less by the Pm himself (and all dUMNo Pms in the past) that without dUMNo, the Malays will be bullied by others and become 'bangsat' (bastardised), then there is nothing that can be done to save the nation.
The Malays themselves as the majority population are the ones who will determine the fate of the nation and that of themselves.
If they fear change and fail to stand up for themselves, or are easily taken in by the fear-mongering and sweet nothings from dUMNo leaders, expect further financial and economic scandals and hardships as the national debt piles up, the Ringgit continues in its nose-dive, investors continue to be spooked and the economy deteriorates, more arrogance and more abuses of power.
If that is not being made 'bangsat' or bastardised, it is hard to imagine what further humiliation would be worse.
