None so deaf as Pakatan who refuses to hear

I am not sure why the federal opposition especially those in Pribumi keeps insulting, heckling and abusing the #UndiRosak people?

I have read the abuses against Maryam Lee and I have to say I've been thoroughly shocked by the barbaric insults, eg. "... her mouth is full of my sperm ... etc etc ...".

Why insult or abuse those who do not share your political beliefs? Are you a mini-dictator? Who says that you are right in your political belief in the first place?

The irony has been these abusers have the brazen nerve to proclaim themselves as champions of democracy and free speech. They are only that insofar as no one should ever disagree, oppose or argue with them. They will be worse dictators than Ayatollah what's-his name.

They haven't even identify the cause of #UndiRosak, namely, the preposterousness of Pakatan nominating Mahathir as PM-designate.

MM Online publishes a statement by Dr Patricia Martinez (extracts ONLY as follows):

... This PH is not the same as the one we welcomed and voted for in GE 13. So those luminaries insulting us as “betrayers”, “delusional” “hopeless and giving up”, for #UndiRosak (I have had to personally endure such abuse on a long-term basis) are themselves delusional.

Malaysians can figure things out for themselves... and we are now cynical, angry, disillusioned, frustrated. Among other possible reasons.

Articles sanitising Mahathir or calling on us to “forgive and forget” and intimate or actually tell us to “choose the lesser evil” horrify me.

I have never knowingly settled for evil, so why should I, when I vote?

Patricia A. Martinez is a Malaysian who is Senior Research Fellow for Religion and Culture and head of the Intercultural Studies Research at the Asia-Europe Institute of the University of Malaya.

She is the first non-Muslim Malaysian with a Ph.D. in Religion, specialization Islam, having studied in both the USA and the Middle East. Using her knowledge of Arabic and Islamic texts and tradition, she employs interdisciplinary analyses in her presentations and publications on Islam in Malaysia and Southeast Asia, Women and Islam and Christian-Muslim relations. Her latest project researched the identity and Islam of ordinary Muslims in Malaysia. She has been awarded a Fulbright in Islamic Studies at Ohio and Stanford Universities for 2003-4.

From here, we can at least understand why Pribumi has attacked #UndiRosak because the young group's target is the removal of what they see as an evil Mahathir the Chairman of Pribumi. Thus Pribumi has to attack, attack and attack.

But what about the other Pakatan component parties? Recently Lim Guan Eng in an attempted conciliatory move towards #UndiRosak asked them for their wish list, but WTF, they have already given that to Pakatan, to wit, the removal of Mahathirwho had his time already for 22 long years, and who had shafted their parents, democracy, freedom, the Constitution and the Judiciary etc kaukau.

Are the Pakatan parties (minus Pribumi) so stupid they can't read what #UndiRosak has been crying out against? The removal of Mahathir as Pakatan PM-designate!
