Desperate Dr M plays the race card

malaysiainsider - [...] Desperate times call for desperate measures. So Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today played the race card ─ something the former prime minister has not done since he was a young, upstart Umno politician in the 1960s.

He warned the Malays that they stood to lose much in the new political environment where the non-Malays were unafraid to make demands.

“If we don’t speak up, if we choose to keep quiet, we will lose our rights and the other races will take over,” he told some 1,000 people at a gathering in Johor Baru.

The words carried extra sting, escaping from the lips of the man who coined the phrase Bangsa Malaysia and promoted the idea of a Malaysian race, where race and religion would play second fiddle to love of country.

During his time as prime minister, Dr Mahathir went to great lengths to blunt his early image as a Malay ultra, often talking about how everyone who called Malaysia home had a stake in it and encouraging the development of vernacular schools.

But today was different. Keen to mine some anxiety in the community and Umno over the rise of Pakatan Rakyat and aware that his last option of forcing Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi out of office now rests largely with mobilising the Malay ground, he played on the fears of the Malays.

Dr Mahathir asked the audience whether anyone of them had read the memorandum forwarded by the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) to the government. “What does it say? Malaysia for Malaysians! This is the reality of the present situation. If we do not speak up, if we choose to keep quiet, we will lose our rights and the other races will take over. When that happens, it will be like Singapore. Do you think we will still have control?” he pondered.... selanjutnya.

He is Desperado. Non-Malays not interested in him. Malays also not keen in him. So he has No Choice but to exploit Malays with Race Card to get their attention.

This is a reason as to why his son mukhriz is also another bad news for us.Like father like son, both racist.
This is the main reason as to why umno must die. umno consisted of racist minded people.
other parties such as mca , mic , ppp , gerakan etc are all equally at guilt for helping such racist party
