Najib touts a philosophy of moderation and says we must reject those who play the racial card to avoid polarisation. And yet…
… he is seen next to Mahathir, the patron of Perkasa.
Was Najib’s message directed at Mahathir and Perkasa? But the PM (Najib, that is!) has never publicly reprimanded the group, has he?
Look at 0:30 and notice the red (riot police?) truck and a phalanx of red-helmeted police at the scene as Najib arrived at the Tow Boh Keong temple in Ipoh yesterday. Ipoh residents reported seeing road blocks in town. Who were they expecting?
Najib said he was surprised by the huge turnout: “Who said the Chinese in Perak do not support Barisan?” But hey, it was lunch!
After lunch, Ipoh was hit by a heavy storm at around 4.00pm.
I remember a similar heavy storm at 4.00pm – in Penang on polling day, 2008….
