The Minister is........
Well, let me give you a hint... he was mumbling rubbish while he was Deputy Home Minister in Hardtalk on BBC....
Come on... already the government is back pedalling and here you have one nitwit that comes out and say what they have been stereotyping Anwar... A US SNITCH.
Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar today branded PKRde facto leader Anwar Ibrahim as an United States ‘snitch’.The minister said this in response to a caution from Washington with regards to the fresh sodomy allegation against the opposition stalwart.
"Anwar is a tukang lapor (snitch) to America. Every time when something happens, he reports to the US," he told reporters at the Parliament lobby.
"I thought he wants to be our country’s leader ... why ask advice from foreign countries?" he added.
If it is not already a fact that Anwar is pretty close to USA as well as the West, here we have a government under seige trying to reinforce the stereotyping of Anwar as a lap dog of USA and the West. It is this relationship that is most critical... even US biggest critic.. Tun Old Man paid millions! Just to have a photo taken of him shaking the hands of Bushie... hippocrite?
Why would Syed Hamid Albar wants to do that? Does he think by saying this he could sway opinions about Anwar based on broad Muslim abhorrence? Syed Hamid is displaying exactly the arrogance that caused the downfall of UMNO and BN. Probably its in them to be arrogant. Which brings to mind another statement made by Liow Tiong Lai, when he said,
“He has to be reminded that the feelings of all the races must be taken into consideration... Umno cannot just think of the Malays when they do anything. No... they have to know the feelings of other races, then we can take a multiracial approach.”
What irked me was he has to be REMINDED! If you are genuine about not being arrogant, there must be a desire to change yourself without being reminded. If you have to be constantly reminded then, you are HARDCORE.
Now back to the topic... Syed Hamid for all he is worth has played nicely into the hands of Anwar... That is what he wanted... to be villified and crucified by the government as he continues to build on the sympathy of the people... seriously whatever the government say or do.. they are already being undermined by their past actions. Nothing except exonerating Anwar from the sodomy case will do justice to the police even if he DID sodomise that Saiful guy. So Syed Hamid, if you think you had done the current administration a favour by labelling him a snitch... instead you have done the current administration a dis-favour. Bravo Syed Hamid...
