Mahathir is OK with Racism but Not Same Sex Relationship

Mahathir Mohamad dismissed Pakatan Rakyat’s (PR) claims that the country was a totalitarian state, pointing out that the pact had been able win in elections and form state governments.

But Malaysia’s longest-serving prime minister admitted that governance would have been easier if he was a dictator.

“In Malaysia, the opposition said that we are a totalitarian state because we have had the same party ruling the country since independence but we have seen that the opposition have the chance to win at all levels of election and they are also able to form governments.

Mahathir is right to say about Malaysia not being a totalitarian state. It is overly exaggerated but it is fair to say that this government will do anything, especially manipulating the institutions and legislation, to get what it wanted including clinging on to power.

Mahathir was not a dictator. Not because he did not want to become one but the country's socio-economic structure did not allow him to become fully dictatorial. We were/are an open economy. Most totalitarian states e.g. Burma, North Korea and a few African nations are closed economy and ignored by investors (an exception if they are oil producing nations).

However, this government is racially discriminative. It practices a class divide policy which was subtly inherited from the colonial masters.

Even Mahathir sees no wrong for his party (UMNO Baru) to perpetuate racial politics and focus only on the Malays. He supported and endorsed a right-winged Malay group, Perkasa, and defended their role and extreme views on race relations.

This country, its policies and political landscape were sculptured by Mahathir.

Yet, Mahathir thinks that same sex relationship is worse than corruption, power grab (Perak), insubordination (IGP Musa), racism (Perkasa), power abuse, custodial deaths, racism and other ills.

He was able to achieve all these ills through the customary two-thirds parliamentary majority enjoyed by his party. Malaysians should take some blame for being so gullible too.

The fact is same sex relationship does not hurt anyone. Corruption, racism, power abuse and others do hurt us.

This is pariah, racist shenanigan Mahathir !
Now that he does not have the power of a P.M. he wants to be known as someone else he even wants his descendants to become Chinese.
This is pure pollution and contamination of the Chinese blood not to mention it is a bloody disgrace to the Chinese he hates so much.
That is why his grand children are having 50% Chinese blood in them than the Malay or the Indian blood in them or the great grand children
becoming Chinese. This is a real shamble ! He should really leave the pollution and contamination in the sewage where it rightly belongs.

Once again I hope that this old man will drop dead and his body be eaten by vultures.
And let his soul burn in Hell.

Well said Mr Khoo. He is oblivious to the fact he tarnished the judicial system, the racial tension and not to mention the farces of all the BN/UMNO greed was him and his doing. Can anyone dispute it? He mudah lupa as he mudah lupa his origins. People like him is not worth any dime to this community.

Mahathir will go down in Malaysian history as racist extraordinare!

Will go down in Malaysian history again as the least respected PM ever, and also reportedly someone who squandered hundreds of billions of the country's wealthy!

That is Mahathir for you folks, nothing special, only thing is he is smart to divide the population by race and continue his evil rule. Very soon, no matter what his devious plans, UMNO Baru/BN will be crushed, if not in the 13GE, it will be in the 14th GE! Younger Malaysians just do not want to be exploited again, they are just too smart to be manipulated and exploited by politicians!

Anyone who practises corruption, racism etc will not think that it is wrong. Many politician are in worse sin than same sex relationship. It is just that they are not caught. It is difficult to find a really good and righteous leader.

Who are we to blame beside the generation who voted for him during this Mad Man's rule of the country. We have given him chance to rule this country for 22 years the Malays, Chinese and Indians. Are we starting to complain now after he has successfully retired and has his money well kept?

This pariah, racialistic, greedy mamak is already one and half foot inside the grave. It needs just a kick in his ass and he will RIP.
He is now claiming to be the champion of the malay race like that dickhead Ib Ali. These two dickheads are scared hell, if PKR takes over, they and their cronies have to vomit all their ill gotten $$$$$$$$$$$$$$s and they have to clean their asses sitting in jail.

I am flabber-gasted. A wayward politician indulging in racist gathering! What is our politician turning to? What direction is our country go and what will we be like in 2-3 years time?

This pariah mamak kutty has already more than a leg inside the grave. Yet he still continue to open his stinking foul mouth. Recent actions by him on Perkasa, May 13 issue proved that this ex PM bum is not only corrupted to the core but racially too, to mention a few.
Just ignore him and his equally counterparts like that dickhead Ib Ali etc....
Lets move on and throw BN/UMNO out for good.

Most of the relationships start because marriage is not possible or not desired at that point of time, but living and exploiting someone only for fun is not called for at all.
