So many monkeys in our country are going ape and "likening" thenselves to be a Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela of sorts. This new found craze to associate themselves to such a great man who passed away 2 days ago at age 95 has gone viral here. Have they no shame to compare themselves with such a nobleman ? A man who served 27 years of his life in prison in abject conditions for a cause he believed in-to end apartheid and racism in a country ruled by whites. The stories of Mandela will be told over and over by those who knew and lived with him. A good man.....but a few years ago this "metallic" man from Pangkor, likened himself not just to Mandela but also to Gandhi ! ( here )
And more recently our dear prime minister likened UMNO's struggle to that of Mandela's fight against apartheid in South Africa. Come on now Mr. Najib, surely you must be out of your mind to even think about it, right ? UMNO a party that reeks of racism, patronised by presidents from the time of the MahaFiruan and is corrupted to high heaven is nothing but a party of hungry wolves waiting to devour anything remotely non-Malay. A party that takes "bashing" to new heights of any race or religion not Malay or Muslim at every annual general assembly. To "liken" this party to a man like Mandela is like slapping Mandela across his face while he's lying in state in his coffin. How dare they liken UMNO to someone like the great Nelson Mandela ? The REAL statesman !( here)
And while we're in the mood to abuse the loose word "liken" and link ourselves to some great personality past and present, our pm yesterday slyly sneaked in another "wammy" by proclaiming that nobody knows what goodness his beloved wifey the FLOM did ( here ) !.......hmmmm....did he also try to add that FLOM's contribution to the Malaysian society is likened to that of Mother Teresa ??? Hahahahahaha !
So shy lah !
