Mahathir Black September

Dr Mahathir Mohamad started his Black September on Sep 5, 2016 by paying homage to Anwar Ibrahim in court.

He was hoping that gesture would be seen as a sort of reconciliation where old animosities could be put aside and Pakatan Harapan would invite Pribumi to join the opposition coalition and take over the leadership of Pakatan Harapan from DAP.

Basically the DAP-led Pakatan Harapan would transform into the Pribumi-led Pakatan Harapan.

Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and Nurul Izzah were also in court but they refused to share the stage with Mahathir (meaning sit in the front row with Mahathir, Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali and minion Khairuddin Abu Hassan).

So they walked off and went home.

That snub does not require any explanation unless you are Khairuddin.

None of the DAP leaders, especially Lim Kit Siang and Lim Guan Eng, went to court, which was also a very clear message to Mahathir.

Even someone like Khairuddin would realise that Sep 5 exercise was a disaster.

Then, ten days later on Sep 15, 2016, Mahathir finally managed to get an audience with His Majesty the Agong.

Mahathir had been trying unsuccessfully before that to get his audience and he even said he could not get to meet the Agong because His Majesty is under house arrest.

Mahathir probably remembered what he did to the then Agong in November 1999, the late Sultan of Selangor, when he spirited His Majesty to Langkawi and did not allow anyone to see His Majesty until after the general election, not even his own sons or the Regent, the current Sultan of Selangor.

Yes, in November 1999, Mahathir put the Agong (the late Sultan of Selangor) under house arrest.

So he thought Najib was doing the same thing to the present Agong (the Sultan of Kedah) to deny him access to His Majesty.

Anyway, Mahathir finally managed to meet the Agong on Sep 15 and he handed His Majesty the Citizens’ Declaration with 45 signatories.

Mahathir indicated that he had another 1.3 million to 1.4 million signatures although he did not bring them.

The Agong then asked Mahathir whether he could guarantee that the 1.3 million or 1.4 million signatures are genuine.

Mahathir remained quiet for a few minutes and finally, after some pause, he replied these were what was given to him.

After that the Agong lectured Mahathir on the role of a Constitutional Monarch and the reason why a Constitutional Monarch cannot get involved in politics or interfere in the running of the government.

After all, this was what Mahathir himself had lectured the Rulers back in the 1980s when he amended the Federal Constitution of Malaysia to remove the ‘immunity’ of the Rulers and passed a Bill that does not require the consent or signature of the Agong and for Bills to automatically become law even if the Rulers do not agree.

It took more than 30 years but finally Mahathir received a slap on the face with the same argument that he used against the Rulers more than 30 years ago.

This is what is called poetic justice.

You get slapped with the same thing you used to slap the Rulers back in the 1980s.

That was the second disaster for Mahathir this Black September after the first one on Sep 5.

Then, yesterday, the Sultan of Johor delivered yet another slap.

If Khairuddin by now still does not realise that the Rulers are against his boss, Mahathir, then for sure he is more stupid than he looks.

Even a halfwit will know that the Rulers are telling Mahathir to go screw himself.

So that was the Black September that Mahathir suffered.

Mahathir is being made to lick back his own spit and he is being slapped with the very thing that he used to slap others.

Other than just Azmin, PKR, in particular Anwar’s family, is telling Mahathir to go screw himself — and so is DAP which is not about to let Mahathir take over the leadership of Pakatan Harapan.

Mahathir does not have too many options left. In fact, he has hardly any options left.

So now he has to resort to blackmail to try to bring Umno and Barisan Nasional down.

His latest strategy is to work on one state and, hopefully, based on the domino theory, other states will follow as panic spreads throughout the land.

So Mahathir has chosen one state where its menteri besar has a penchant for pretty young men to start with.

Mahathir is threatening to expose this menteri besar’s ‘unusual’ sexual orientation if he does not serve him as the old man’s Trojan horse.

His job is to spread fear and panic amongst the Umno leaders and its elected representatives in his state by saying that Pribumi would be a force to be reckoned with and which should not be ignored because Umno was about to lose that state.

If this state panics and the Umno members in that state cross over to Pribumi in droves, that will trigger panic in the other states as well because this state is significant and Umno is pretty strong in that state.

To entice them to cross over, the Umno members are being told that they can always return to Umno later if Pribumi fails to take the state.

So it would be no loss if they play safe and cross over in case Pribumi succeeds.

To ensure that they can always return to Umno, their membership will be ‘unofficial’ and their names would not be sent to the Registrar of Societies (ROS).

This means they can still officially remain Umno members but unofficially be Pribumi members.

Then both ways they gain whether Umno stays in power or Pribumi takes over.

Clever, no?

It’s like having two passports and dual-nationality, like what many Malaysians are doing.

So, if they do not make it, say, in Australia, they can always come back to Malaysia.

Anyway, this menteri besar is being blackmailed to spread panic and fear so that Pribumi can win that state not through a state election or general election but by getting the Umno leaders and wakil rakyat in that state to cross over to Pribumi.

The ‘marketing agent’, being the menteri besar, would certainly have strong influence in convincing the Umno leaders and wakil rakyat in that state.

Of course, Najib knows about this, as do his Boffin Boys.

The fact that the menteri besar has a love for sweet young men is no secret.

Many already know about this, which, in fact, is the talk of the town.

In early August 2016, the menteri besar attended a Hari Raya open house and, as he drove off, many noticed a pretty boy sitting in the back seat of his car.

This young thing did not come out of the car but waited in the car while the Menteri Besar attended the Hari Raya function.

What made it even more interesting is that the driver was driving with the most disgusted bodyguard sitting beside him.

The bodyguard has told some people that he may not work with the menteri besar for long because he is disgusted with what is going on.

He may be just a bodyguard but that does no mean he is stupid.

He knows what is happening and he is not too happy about it.

Mahathir said he can never accept a gay prime minister but it looks like the old man has no problems accepting a gay menteri besar.

Is this the mark of a sincere and principled person?

Mahathir, of course, is right about one thing.

Malays can tolerate a lot (even corruption, gambling, drinking and adultery).

However, when it comes to homosexual activities that is where the Malays draw the line.

Mahathir knows this, which is why he used this excuse to get rid of Anwar rather than use some other allegation.

Mahathir knows that if the story about this menteri besar’s gay lifestyle is leaked, the public will crucify him upside down.

So this menteri besar is scared shit and he will do anything to protect his secret.

The problem, though, is that this secret is not a secret.

Many people already know about this although no one wants to talk about it.

But if this menteri besar is going to become a liability because of his penchant for pretty young men, then Najib has to get rid of him before he brings Umno and Barisan Nasional down.

One very pretty Puteri Umno girl actually complained about this.

Wherever she goes heads would turn.

However, when she met the menteri besar, he showed no interest in looking at her and instead he was concentrating on the pretty young man in the room.

Her suspicions were roused when she noticed that most of his staff is what Malays would call “jambu”.

The opposition is not making an issue of this because they are reserving it for the coming general election when they will go to town with this story.

The state might fall, as what the menteri besar is saying, but it will be because of his ‘secret’ rather than because Pribumi is strong, as what he is trying to suggest.

The menteri besar is just trying to build his case so that if the state falls then he can blame Najib and 1MDB and Pribumi for that election defeat.

He would not have to take the blame.

Actually, it is not easy for this state to fall if it is just because of Pribumi.

The state has more than 50 seats with less than 20 in the hands of DAP, PAS and PKR.

DAP has already maximised its seats so they cannot win any more than what they won in 2013.

PAS is no longer with Pakatan Harapan, which means they were not going to benefit from the Malay votes.

Therefore, the only way the state can fall would be if the Umno reps cross over to the opposition, which is what Mahathir is trying to achieve.
That is the role of the menteri besar, to try to get them to cross over.

Short of that Mahathir cannot take that state.

Mahathir hopes that once that state falls due to crossovers then other states will follow.

So now Najib needs to make sure that this menteri besar is axed before his plan to create fear and panic succeeds and a few Umno elected reps cross over to Pribumi.

This menteri besar is too dangerous to keep around.

In fact, any menteri besar with a sex sandal is too dangerous to keep around.

Once this menteri besar is axed. Mahathir will, yet again, be stumped and September 2016 will really be his Black September.
