Of General assembly, peaceful gathering and ...

The rhetorics seem few notches lower than the past year as PM deliver his key speech in the annual UMNO general assembly. Mentioning that the party is receptive to collective ideas, PM is seeding the assembly with coated speech to win the hearts of non-Malays.

Gone are the "Go, if u don't like" challenge, PM is trying his best to provides the prelude of the coming delegates speeches. True to the core, most of the delegates tend to be concilatory in nature and potrays the need of their people, as if they are the true fighters and represents the rakyat.

Apart from the PM's address, the Youth wing has re-define the reasoning behind the kris unsheathing. From the words of defending the Malay rights to the last spill of blood, now the rhetoric talks about protecting all, as the umbrella.

The questions that raised through my mind is how can they defend the rights of a common Malaysian when the UMNO youth brigade (PUTRA) enjoys supporting the mat rempits, those king of the road comes Saturday nights?

Come 10th November when the UMNO general assembly is over, there will be another kind of assembly. This time the assembly is not held in the air cond halls of PWTC but under the blue skies of Malaysia where thousands of people is expected to gather for a clean and fair election whilst voicing their support to the Rulers of Malaysia.

Whether the 10th November gathering manage to gather 1o, 100, 1000, 10000, 100000, 1000000 people is not important. What is important is that there is a decent voice for a cleaner and fair election procedures as well as a solid support to YDPA.

It is not politically motivated and UMNO should use this opportunity to prove that they are also citizens who support the YDPA.

As I see it, if UMNO could not activate their members to join in the peaceful gathering, then it is clear who is the arrogant party - the one who feels that they own the country and can rundown normal citizenss without care...

Till then...G'nite M'sia...wherever u are...
