A Retard Named Muhyiddin

I find this news report from The Malaysian Insider confusing (Webpagehttp://www.themalaysianinsider.com/print/malaysia/muhyiddin-insists-bersih-political-threat-to-security/, posted June 25, 2011) because it makes Muhyiddin Yassin look like a genuine retard! .

Muhyiddin has deemed the July 09 Bersih rally as politically-motivated and a threat to national security as well as the country’s reputation. Even if his remarks are idiotic, it is his personal opinion after all.

For the uninformed, Bersih or the Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections was established in 2006 by opposition parties and civil society organizations to pursue clean and fair elections. However, the leadership decided to transform the coalition into a purely civil society movement, doing away with political involvement, renaming it Bersih 2.0.

I said I was confused because when UMNO Youth and right-wing group Perkasa wanted to carry out separate rallies to rival Bersih’s – Muhyiddin had the cheek to defend the counter rallies and said it was “normal” to have counter groups to any movement. I shouldn’t be surprised because the planned Bersih rally has already sent chills down BN’s spine – hence the many public pronouncements to condemn Bersih. Didn’t Muhyiddin himself made the statement accusing the opposition of hiding behind the Bersih 2.0 rally to topple the ruling BN government? (Webpage http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/muhyiddin-says-opposition-using-bersih-rally-to-topple-bn/, posted June 18, 2011).

Is he really, really stupid or what?

I received this photo of my WOU’s CEMBA students taken on the last day of class (i.e. May 22, 2011). A nice bunch of people! Stay in touch, people!
