Datuk Seri Nazri Tan Sri Aziz was someone I used to look up to when I was in UMNO Youth having just returned from abroad and entering into mainstream politics after being an ordinary member for six years before that as a student. In fact, I was one of his most disappointed supporters when he declined to contest for the Youth Chief after having served in an acting capacity for a long spell. On the record, the position was his for the taking hands down but he opted to sit as a member of the Supreme Council instead, unable to be of much significance compared to his previous post. It seems now, that disappointing those who had much confidence in him has become an incurable disease which no longer can be described as a habit.
After being warned by the Prime Minister not to touch on the Biro Tata Negara (BTN) issue anymore, ruffling feathers among the hard-core Malay leaders while “holding hands and walking in the park” with Lim Kit Siang from the opposition DAP and Koh Tsu Koon from GERAKAN (Opposition in Residence), he has yet again held out his bare arms to embrace the non-Malays by hitting out at the so called non-existent Malay Supremacists, a term resurrected by the Chinese and Indian politicians from both divides of the aisle in Parliament to antagonize UMNO. It’s a good thing the MCA is currently having “intestinal” problems, otherwise they too would join in the fray.
Instead of cowering into submission on the spin by Malaysiakini in his interview smashing Malay Supremacy advocates, Nazri should have avoided it and in its stead attacked the advocates of “Malay Inferiority”, if he had an ounce of loyalty to his race at all. M Kulasegaran, the DAP National Vice Chairman who accused law abiding citizens of being racists, who lodged police reports against him instead of kicking the stool out of his curry backside, could have been a sitting duck if Nazri opted the use of reasonable intellect before shooting his mouth off.
Previous to this, Nazri ridiculed taxi drivers, the majority of whom are Malays and supporters of UMNO/BN, by comparing their taxis to public toilets. I pray that these drivers don’t look upon him as representing the UMNO party because he is merely an appointed, un-elected member in the Supreme Council.
Prime Minister Najib Razak seriously needs to wash Nazri’s mouth and keep it from continually barking lest we might lose whatever Malay support we have left while waiting to see the true outcome of 1Malaysia which at best remains a promise for now.
NB: Kepada Rakyat Berbangsa Melayu Dan Pemandu-Pemandu Teksi Yang Budiman. Assalamualaikum WBT. YB Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz Hanyalah Seorang Ahli Majlis Tertinggi Yang Telah Dilantik Diatas Ehsan Presiden Dan Bukannya Di Pilih Oleh Para Perwakilan UMNO. Dari Itu, Beliau Tidak Langsung Mewakili Pandangan Rasmi Parti UMNO Malaysia, Al-khususan UMNO Bahagian Pulai. Harap Maklum. Hidup Melayu! Salam 1Malaysia.
