On The Malay Apocalypse Yesterday and UMNO as the Messiah


Where in the holy scripture is written that UMNO is chosen by god I would ask? I believe Malays are now scrambling to read all existing scriptures of the Abrahamic tradition -- the Talmud, the Torah, the Old and New Testament, the Psalms of David, the Quran ,.. in order to find evidence of this profoundly new revelation that must have been passed down to a messenger in the 21st, century.
A REPUBLIC OF VIRTUE

This news story interests me and I offer my thoughts on it:

" ...Umno is the party chosen by God to liberate the chosen land of Malaysia and to uplift the chosen race of the Malays, claimed Umno Youth information chief Reezal Merican Naina Merican.

“When it comes to power, since 55 years ago, He had chosen Umno as the ones to liberate our country.

“Remember, we are mukhtarin, the chosen ones,” he told the Umno general assembly while debating the president’s address.

As such, he said that no matter how people want to choose otherwise or have the right as humans to make their own choices, they must realise that they are bound by God’s dictates.

And God’s choice, he said, is that the assembled delegates are Malays living in the chosen land of Malaysia and is to be liberated and administered by Umno.

He explained that God is the true authority over all governments and shall give power to those that He has chosen. ... "

Where in the holy scripture is written that UMNO is chosen by god I would ask? I believe Malays are now scrambling to read all existing scriptures of the Abrahamic tradition -- the Talmud, the Torah, the Old and New Testament, the Psalms of David, the Quran ,.. in order to find evidence of this profoundly new revelation that must have been passed down to a messenger in the 21st century. I for one would be thinking of embarking on such a hermeneutically-inviting reading of the holy texts and along the way I might also discover that god does read newspapers. We must not take these claims lightly and brush them off as another "LOL" occasion or "ROTFL" moment if we are to use the lingo of Generation XYZ at an age wherein the line between cybernetics and existentialism has become thinner than a piece of human hair split into seven strands for the believer to walk on in their journey to the gates of paradise.
And verily .. only the chosen people will be delivered from the dungeons of destitute and desolation in this game of salvation that has taken a semiotic turn and a flavour of deeply moving religiosity; as moving as the decision Moses made to deliver the chosen people out of Egypt, as inscribed in the Exodus. And for those Malays who believed that UMNO is the chosen party of god and that salvation must only come from the sacrifices UMNO has made and died for, for the sins of men, and that the Messiah will come from amongst those of the race of Sawojaya (brown-skinned sawo matang folks,)

For those Malays, I assume that there will be an exodus of the Malays and forty years of wandering in the deserts of Bintang Walk before they come to a promised land right beside the Melaka tree Parameswara sat under when he saw a Rottweiler kick a mousedeer into the river and declared that the kingdom shall be called Malaka-ka-ka and when he installed himself as a sultan thenafter, he shall pardon his own sins of the Palembang fugitive who went to Singapore and killed that Siamese-installed ruler named Temagi who was shot with a Russian-made machine gun while Temagi was eating Maggi mee. This is the seriousness of the latest claim by the high priest-politicians in their effort to call for the unity of the Malays and to save the chosen people from the prospect of not being chosen this time around.

I don't know ... do you?

Lets' get serious will you politicians ? .. this is an age in which we might not be smarter than an eighth grader ...
