“You may fool all the people some of the time, you can even fool some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all the time.”

Abraham Lincoln

UMNO has too many of these court jesters who suffer from foot-in-the-mouth disease.

Let's look at a few of their existing psychological warfare teams:
Biro Tata Negara - BTN
Ministry of Education
Ministry of Higher Education
Special Branch
Unit Tindakan Khas - UTK
Mainstream Media
Elections Commission - EC
Ministry of Information

In fact, all the govt machinery exists to propagate UMNO's hold on power.

And yet this Al Blur complains about the lack of a psychological warfare team. Psychological warfare has been waged against the people since 1948 by the British and continued till today by UMNO.

(Bernama) -- The Barisan Nasional (BN), especially Umno, needs to form a psychological warfare team to deal with opposition allegations against the coalition or Umno.
Home Minister and Umno Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said besides this, the party's strategies, integrity and credibility also needed to be enhanced to draw public attention.

"Our problem is that we have allowed negative public perceptions about us to persist. When negative perceptions have taken root, it is difficult for us to get out of the situation," he said at a press conference at Angkasapuri, here, today.

Syed Hamid said having a psychological warfare team could make the party more mature and ward off negative public perceptions about it.

"When something happens or an issue arises, there must be quick action to remove or diffuse wrong perceptions against us.

"We are weak in information dissemination and propaganda, while the opposition is strong in mounting a propaganda," he said.
