Recent statements are bewildering too. Since more than 40 years ago, I had been wondering why political statements did not make sense, especially when leaders said one thing and they meant just the opposite; when a racialist party leader said his own party is not racist when their own party objectives and survival depend solely on protecting their own narrow interests. They still do...
Maclean Patrick's response to DPM Muhyiddin's statement...
Then we have the Mamaks or Indian Muslims who are the strongest defenders of Malay rights! Tun Dr. Mahathir must be the best known, and I do not need to mention the others. But Dr. Chandra Muzaffar's latest statement seems so politically incorrect for someone who used to be known for his role in JUST. 'Malaysian Malaysia' goes against principles: Chandra'
I cannot imagine how a Malaysian Malaysia which must be presumably for equality among the races could go against any good principles, unless the said principles must be inherently unfair. Was it because it was proposed by arch enemy, Lee Kuan Yew?
The first comment in Malaysia Today when The Star's news report was published:

Lee Kuan Yew has got no chance to practice "Malaysian Malaysia" so he mplemented "Singaporean Singapore" and Singapore is now a First World country with per capital GDP among the highest in the developed world. See the difference now, Nutty Dr.Chandra Muzaffar?
"Malaysian Malaysia" is all about fairness and equal justice to all, a society without fairness and equal justice to all is a doomed society. "Malaysian Malaysia" is definitely not about being extreme, too rigid, overly liberal or fanatical as Dr.Chandra trying to insinuate.
Basic rights of Malays and bumiputras in Sabah, Sarawak and what not, as provided for in the Federal Constitution are secondary compared to the fundamental rights accorded to all Malaysian regardless of race and creed in the Federal Constitution.
This Chandra guy is acting stupid and is up to no good.'
I leave it to my blog visitors to judge for themselves whether Malaysia is becoming a 'democrazy'.
