Nazi Celup Ala Malaysia
by Eyes Wide Open
Merely 2 days after Ridhuan Tee’s Nazi-flavoured anti-Christian rant was published, Utusan Malaysia delivers yet another Nazi-flavoured rant. This time about the controversial appointment of the Selangor State Secretary.
In his column, assistant editor-in-chief Zaini Hassan called on Malays to zealously defend their sovereignty in the country, declaring:
“Do we Malays (already so few in the world) want to allow another country belonging to China or India outside their own lands? It should be enough with Singapore (a country belonging to China outside mainland China). Do we also want to give away this homeland?”
How does Zaini equate the Federal govt’s abuse of a Constitutional loophole to a Chinese plot to take over Selangor? He is either very smart or very stupid to be able to think of some kind of logic that helped him come to this conclusion.
Utusan’s obssession with demonising the non-Malays again resonates well with Nazi racist attitudes towards Jews and other “inferior” races. Hitler and other Nazi leaders viewed them as parasite “races” living off the misfortunes of the Master race and weakening them.
And how many times have we read Utusan articles denouncing the greed and ravaging appetites for money and power of the “kaum pendatang”? How many times have Utusan warned Malays to rise up and not be “slaves in their own land”? Ridhuan Tee, especially, has time and again shamelessly taken the ultra-Malay stance, despite being a Chinese through and through with no hope of getting Bumi status in his lifetime.
Another distressing similarity between Nazi Germany and Umno’s Malaysia is the Nazi’s absolute control over the media via the direct ownership of media, indirect control via printing licenses, censorship board, threats and the overall control through the Ministry of Propaganda. This environment guaranteed that no view that deviated from the Nazi ideology was allowed.
Compare that with Malaysia where the ruling parties enjoy direct ownership of media, indirect control via printing licenses, censorship board, threats and the overall control of the Ministry of Information.
Obviously when the same situation is created, the same result is desired. If that is the case, we can also assume that Utusan’s racist rants does not deviate from UMNO ideology, otherwise it would not be published.
Are we also to assume then that the UMNO President’s 1Malaysia = Nazism?
