    Pak Lah: Umno is not a bully

    Pak Lah: Umno is not a bully

    By Shannon Teoh

    KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 18 — Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has refuted the idea that Umno bullies its partners in the Barisan Nasional.

    “People say Umno is a party that likes to bully. I actually have no idea how to bully people,” the BN chairman said when opening the 55th MCA General Assembly today.

    “This is the strategy used by the opposition to destabilise BN. The issue of Umno bullying components does not start from component parties.

    “There is no such thing as bullying. Ask these people in the front,” the Umno president said referring to the MCA leaders on stage.

    Umno not a bully? Yeah. Right

    The difficulty for MCA and Gerakan is that they tango with UMNO using race politics as their modus operandi. Then their leaders stand in mainly Malay-majority seats or ones with significant Malay % in which they rely on UMNO to deliver. Next they are fully aware how postal votes and phantom votes are used against the opposition parties and these same votes can be used against them (MCA and Gerakan). Therefore, they are in a dilemma. Talk too much, they will get whacked at the polls by UMNO. Keep quiet and the non-Malays will whack them.

    It is a situation of "Do, die. Don't do, also die".

    If they don't have the guts to leave BN, we have to solve their problem for them by knocking them out in the next elections so that this nonsense is put to a stop once and for all. In their present position, they are useless to all fair-minded Malaysians.

    Umno not a bully? Yeah. Right

    COMMENTARY

    OCT 18 — Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi must be suffering from amnesia.

    That is the most charitable conclusion to draw after he said today that the perception of Umno being a bully in the Barisan Nasional was off the mark.

    Speaking at the annual MCA general assembly, the Prime Minister touched on a topic that has been discussed and debated since non-Malay voters deserted the ruling coalition in droves on March 8: the arrogance of Umno politicians and the perception that the MCA, MIC, Gerakan, PPP, PBS and every other component party were punished at the polls for their subservience to the ruling party.

    He said: “People say that Umno is a party that likes to bully. I actually have no idea how to bully. There is no such thing as bullying.’’

    MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting and Gerakan president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon must have been bristling at the cavalier manner Abdullah dismissed the issue.

    Re: Pak Lah: Umno is not a bully

    It should read Umno is NOT only a bully because:

    1. Umno can kidnap (ISA) a journalist to protect her personal safety.
    2. Umno will not allow the "pendatang" to challenge the "constitutional social contract" that is non existance.
    3. Umno can lock RPK away for telling the truth while Umnoputra can get away with billions RM corruption, lie, murder and whatnot!
    4. Umno can appoint its own Chief Justice.
    5. It will take a month to list down the rest of "Umnoputra rights" in bullying others and run the country to the ground for the last 50 years.

    Helen Ang on BN Bully & Beggar's Beef

    BN bully and beggar’s beef

    The accusation ‘Umno bully’ saw both sides dancing with shadows, one defending and the other denying the charge.

    Just-retired MCA chief Ong Ka Ting made the allegation by invoking perception. Ong said in his keynote address on Saturday that many people perceive power-sharing by BN to be neither effective nor fair, and Umno seen as dominant. He said the power-sharing is only seen as lip service and pleaded to the Prime Minister that it should not be viewed as though Umno alone determines policies.

    It’s reflective of MCA that Ong can’t even talk straight at his own party’s recent general assembly but instead resorted to words like ‘perceive’, ‘seen as’ and ‘viewed as though’.

    Pure lip-service by Ong Ka Ting.... biasalah. MCA also irrelevant already and he is making it more permanently irrelevant by continuing all these ampu bodek acts with UMNO / BN. Come next General Elections, I don't think MCA (or Gerakan) will still be around.... at least thats how I feel.

    Right, if UMNO is not a bully..why did the component parties like MCA cower or hush up (before GE 200 when its members were told off when they said or do things UMNO didn't like? They didn't even have a voice then but paid lip service to all UMNO said. Now, they seem to be very brave in saying things they didn't dare bring up before.

    Because the undi hantu can be used against them also. They know how the system works.

    In 2004, DAP seemed to do better than the other opposition parties because all the undi hantus were concentrated on PKR and to a slightly lesser extent, PAS. They almost succeeded in wiping out PKR.

    So DAP went around crowing and claiming that their policy of opposing PAS's Islamic State did the trick. Such delusion.
