Here is a recent article by Mariam Mokhtar. I am reproducing it in full. My comments are in blue.
By Mariam Mokhtar
*1. HOW COME AFTER 60 YEARS WE ARE STILL BEHIND THE OTHER MALAYSIANS?*
Are we stupid or are you – our leaders – that after over half a century you have still not got it right?
(OSTB : It is the fault of the Malays. They did not read enough books and intelligent material on their own to understand that their leaders were the ones who were and still are – stupid. Unbelievably stupid. Yes the leaders were stupid but it is the Malays who put them there. Look at how many Malays still support Hadi, Najib and PAS.)
The Malays in Singapore are by and large better off than us yet they do not have Bumiputraism. Why not learn from them?
(OSTB : The Singapore Malays are now becoming success stories who can outcompete the Chinese. Highly successful bankers in Singapore are Malays. Top real estate professionals in Singapore are Malays. And many more.)
The wealth gap intra the Malay community is much wider than that of the other communities. We have super rich Malays while most of us struggle to make ends meet.
(OSTB : Yes and no. There are no real wealthy Malays. All the so called wealthy Malays became wealthy on bumi projects, bumi contracts, government granted monopolies, taking up 30% bumi quota shares in successful Chinese and foreign owned companies, getting bumi quota shares in public listed companies etc. What does this mean? It means TWO things : 1. Only connected Malays – the elite – benefited from this wealth redistribution. 2. They cannot do it a second time. The children of these get-rich-quick Malays have not learned any business skills. So they cannot repeat the “false success” of their father’s generation. The second and third generation will become poor again.)
Are these rich Malays so much cleverer or more hard working than the rest of us?
Or is it because *they have used their positions and connections to enrich themselves at our expense?*
(OSTB : My point exactly. Notice how many sons and daughters of UMNO/BN Ministers became ‘big businessmen’. Now they are becoming bankrupt and exchange notes among themselves about going bankrupt during Friday prayers in the Bukit Damansara mosque.)
*2. WOULD IT BE TRUE THAT IF “AFFIRMATIVE ACTION” IS BASED ON NEEDS AND NOT ON RACE THERE WILL BE MORE FOR US POOR MALAYS?*
After all since the rich Malays can afford to support their children’s education why are they taking scholarships?
Every place they take means one less place for a poor student.
And how does giving us discount on buying shares help us? Most of us cannot understand the stock market and even if we did, we have no spare money to play the share market. This benefits the rich Malays but not us.
(OSTB : Now you are beginning to see. Many of these bumi policies have been crafted by the Malay elites – the 1st generation Ali Babas – to protect their own interests, ahead of the kampong Malays. You can see these Melayu elit at Bangsar Shopping Center, Bangsar Village, the Pavillion and also at the Bukit Damansara mosque on Fridays. Plus at the various clubs around town. And in Jakarta but that is getting less now. Duit sudah kurang.)
Same for housing we can only afford one house if at all, while the rich can buy many.
(OSTB : Why give a bumi discount for a Malay jutawan to buy a multi million Ringgit bungalow, semi D or upmarket condo? Where is the logic?)
Now if house purchase discounts were given strictly on the basis of needs and not race, then perhaps house prices can come down because of the lower holding cost for developers. This will benefit us.
*3. YOU KEEP TELLING US THE CHINESE ARE OUR ENEMIES; THAT THEY STEAL FROM US AND THAT IF NOT FOR YOU WE WOULD BECOME EXTINCT.*
How did the Chinese steal from us and how are they going to make us extinct? *Explain . . .!?!*
Are you not using them to scare us so that we run to you?
(OSTB : Here is my suggestion. Please make a huge statue of the Chinese and plant it on some high mountain top. If there were no Chinese, who would manufacture our underwear? Who would transport all the rice to our shops and markets? Who would plant, harvest and transport all our vegetables to our main markets? Who would catch, freeze and transport all our fish to the markets? Who would manufacture, market and transport all the cement, roof tiles, floor tiles, comcrete and steel that goes into making all our fantastically wonderful and world class houses? In Malaysia our modern houses are world class. Our taman perumahan, our new townships, our new urban centres are all world class.
An “average” property development in Malaysia.
World class. By Chinese developers.
*4. ON EDUCATION: WHY ARE EVEN OUR FELLOW MALAYS LEAVING THE NATIONAL SCHOOLS AND GOING TO CHINESE SCHOOLS???* *ARE THEY TELLING YOU SOMETHING?*
(OSTB : Every year there are 70,000 [and increasing] Malay students in Chinese schools. Over the past 20 years more than ONE MILLION Malay students have graduated from Chinese schools. The number is increasing.)
Why is religion so much an element in our schools. Should we not have more time on subjects that prepare our children for the workplace – to cari makan?
And if as you keep telling us that we have the best education why are you sending your children to private schools and overseas universities?
(OSTB : They are lying. They know that the sekolah kebangsaan system has failed miserably. The children become more bodoh after going to sekolah kebangsaan.)
Why are our universities ranked so low?
We want good public universities led by good vice chancellors; we don’t care about his race. Yet you play politics with our children’s future by not appointing the best, but using race as a criteria.
(OSTB : The public universities are pusat propaganda ketuanan Melayu. Intelligence, IQ and ability are not too important. Race, religion, strange reinterpretation of history etc are more important than knowledge.)
*5. TO OUR RELIGIOUS LEADERS:*
*WHY IS THE ISLAM PRACTISED IN MANY ISLAMIC COUNTRIES MORE LIBERAL AND OPEN THAN OURS .. ?!?*
*WORDS YOU FORBID THE INFIDELS TO USE ARE USED OPENLY BY NON-MUSLIMS EVEN IN ARABIC COUNTRIES.*
I hear that in Indonesia there are siblings of different faiths in the same family.
That *a Muslim can marry a Christian without either converting from their religion*
*Explain Al Baqara 256: There is no compulsion in religion.*
And why do you think we are we so weak in our faith that we can be so easily confused, or influenced by the sign of the cross, or Christians celebrating their festivals that you forbid us to even convey our festive greetings to them? Or not allow them to enjoy their Oktober Fest as we consider it haram. Who are you/we to impose our beliefs on others. How did we become so intolerant?
*Why is it that you make a fuss of how our women (or other women) dress and trivial matters like that;*
*yet you close your eyes to the corruption that goes on?*
*You say nothing about how our leaders have cheated us*
*Has your silence been bought by the fat pay you get????*
(OSTB : Do not disturb them. Mereka sedang melanc _ p.)
*6. YOU SCOLD US FOR BEING LAZY AND CALL US USELESS – THAT WE CANNOT WALK WITHOUT A TONGKAT. YET YOU KEEP PUSHING THE TONGKAT ON US. WHY?*
Is it to keep us dependent on you? Are you afraid that if we can think for ourselves and stand on our own feet without you we can make up our minds what is good or bad?
(OSTB : Foolish people are easier to manage.)
*7. WHY DO THE OLDER GENERATION MALAYSIANS GET ON SO MUCH BETTER WITH EACH OTHER AND WE DO NOT? IS IT THE SCHOOL SYSTEM?*
Is it the less extreme and more tolerant Islam in their day? My grandmother did not wear a tudung yet she is a good Muslim. My grandfather sat in the coffeeshops with his Chinese and Indian kakis and no one made a fuss.
*Have you brainwashed us to hate the non-Malays?*
I do not care about race; and religion is a personal matter – between me and Allah. I do not want to be used as a pawn to *further your own selfish agenda.*
All I want is a good job and peace and harmony. I want a good education for my children so that they too can have a bright future.
I look at our Malay brothers in Sarawak and Sabah and envy them for their racial harmony and how they enjoy each other.
My grandfather tells me that we were like that once. I want to be like that again.
It is not the non-Malays who do not want to mix with us. *It’s us who want to be exclusive and that works to our detriment.*
Don’t play racial politics with our lives so you can divide and rule, and enrich yourself at our expense.
You can fool some of us all the time and all us some of the time, but you cannot fool all of us all the time.
*Explain why you have failed after 60 years of trying.*
(OSTB : The point that you are missing Mariam Mokhtar is that the Malays are becoming less and less relevant to the rest of the world around them.
Its like this.
For example they are becoming intolerant of ALL other religions. This means to ALL other religions, the Malays are not relevant to their lives. A Hindu, Buddhist etc will discover that the Malay / Muslim is less and less relevant to them.
Another example. The Malays are becoming more intolerant towards dogs. This means even to ALL dogs, the Malays are not relevant to their doggy lives. A dog will live a better life if there are no Malays anywhere near it.
Malays are becoming less tolerant of other races in the country. This means that as far as ALL other races are concerned the Malays are becoming less and less relevant to their lives.
Malays are saying do not wish Merry Christmas. This means that Malays are becoming less relevant when it comes to celebrating Christmas dinners and Christmas parties. Christmas parties and christmas dinners will just have to get along WITHOUT Malays. Its as simple as that.
Public universities are becoming less and less relevant to non Malay academics and scholars. If you want to be a vice chancellor or top academic (by merit) in a public university, and you are NOT a Malay – then you have no chance or little chance of being promoted up. So public universities become less relevant for merit based scholarship.
So little by little – the Malays have made themselves less and less relevant to the real world.
This is part of what some of the unthinking called ‘BUILDING MALAYSIA IN OUR OWN MOULD’.
I call this mould the Cap Tah_ Ayam. The Chicken Shit mould.
After 49 years (since 1970) of this Chicken Shit mould, the shit has really hit the fan.
They have become incurably stupid and non competitive.
But they think they are incurably clever and super competitive.
They think they are capable of working hard. Ha ha ha.
So today, after 49 years, some of the progressive thinkers are beginning to see how deep is the shit that theyhave actually become stuck in.
But where were you 30 years ago?
Enjoying the spoils of the 30% bumi policy?
Tumpang satu kaki?
Buying your homes in Bukit Damansara?
On freebie money?
So what is the problem now?
Your house in Bukit Damansara has been on sale for the past six months and there are no takers?
Can you smell that?
Its the chicken shit.
