'Tis the season for mucho machoness

Less than six days to our 49th National Day celebrations.

And UMNO Youth chief has sounded the spirited cry for "Ketuanan Melayu" or maybe it should be rightly re-phrased as "Ketuanan UMNO".

The STAR at page N4 today:-

Hisham: No need for formal meeting

PUTRAJAYA: There is no need for Umno Youth deputy chief Khairy Jamaluddin to explain his remarks at a Barisan Nasional Youth supreme council meeting, said Barisan Youth chief Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.

He said a formal meeting was not necessary as the issue had been resolved following Khairy’s explanation that his comments on the Chinese community had been misinterpreted.

“Umno Youth leaders have already met with youth leaders from Barisan component parties on several occasions to explain (Khairy’s remarks) after the issue was first raised,” said Hishammuddin, who is also Umno Youth chief and Education Minister.

“We do not need to publicise it any more. There is also no need to call for an emergency meeting of the Barisan supreme council to discuss it further.”

Hishammuddin also said Penang Umno Youth need not wait for a study to be done before meeting with Penang Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon.

This is a good opportunity for the youth leaders to put forward their views and to stand up for those who believe in them,” he said in reference to newspaper reports that Penang Malays were lagging behind.


Get the message??

UMNO Youth is flexing its muscles ahead of a serious battle within their own closed doors.

Time to show who's the Boss. Time to make your demands loud and clear. What better way than to sound the bogeyman alarm and make the meek squeek?

Have we really achieved "Merdeka" against racism in this country?

Well, it is the run-up to the 49th anniversary of Merdeka. I suppose one could forgive the UMNO Youth their antics around this time of the year. (Although Raja Petra Kamarudin suggests that the comments were so inflammatory as to start a "race war", he's being rather coy about what they are. Whatever the case, ignorance is bliss, I suppose.) At any rate, I think I'll celebrate Merdeka in my own way.
