A Dispirited Merdeka 2012

Malaysians are dispirited this August 31st. This year’s slogan for the Merdeka celebration, “Janji ditepati” (i.e. Promises fulfilled) has shamed Malaysians because it corrupts the sanctity of a national celebration. It is nothing more than a stinky political slogan, a desperate election campaign battle cry, and a vulgar gimmick to promote Najib Razak and BN,. It’s cheap, it’s crude and it’s crass! Merdeka has lost its original spirit and Najib Razak is to be blamed.
