It came to our attention that Tunku Aziz, the attack dog of PM Najib, had been used by loyalists to attack Tun Dr Mahathir for voicing his opinion.
Never in the history of Umno, a statesman which was responsible to put nearly everyone in the current Umno leadership into their seats of power, were given such vile treatment in the media and amplified further by the spindoctors and social media cybertroopers in the Najib-obsessed camp.
Well perhaps, it happened once before – during Pak Lah’s time. And we all know what happened to him.
In fact, Umno machinery had never been this vigorous and this abusive towards any Pakatan Rakyat leaders. Perhaps, they have so much to lose should the PM lost his seat.
A fellow blogger (Life of Annie) put Tunku Aziz in his place and lend perspective into these attacks. She wrote:
I have to admit that every time I read what the attack dogs going after Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said about the statesman, I felt like joining those attacking PM DS Najib Razak.
So far, I still manage to resist that, but I did feel this furious anger inside me whenever I read garbage such as this,
These are among words used in the press statement to describe Dr Mahathir;
– spewing scurrilous lies about 1MDB
– reduced himself, in the eyes of many, to a figure of fun and ridicule
– he presents himself as an embittered, vindictive man
– He froths at the mouth every time he accuses 1MDB
– He explained with that familiar self-satisfied smirk on his face
– Typically Mahathir denied responsibility and to this day he remains unrepentant, blasé, and unapologetic
– His manic gambling with Bank Bumi and BNM money
Sounds to me like this Tunku Abdul Aziz is the one who is bitter, vindictive and whatever else.
I do wonder what Dr Mahathir had ever done to him that he became so rabid.
Jealous of Dr Mahathir’s achievements, perhaps?
Anyway, what has this Tunku Abdul Aziz, described as a towering Malay when he was with DAP, ever done for agama, bangsa dan tanah air?
Has he done more than what Dr Mahathir did as the country’s prime minister for 22 years?
Does he really think that by badmouthing Dr Mahathir, he is helping Najib?
Whoever the minder of this Tunku Abdul Aziz, I don’t think he really cares that people like me are disgusted and grow more hostile towards the prime minister because of these sorts of things.
Normal people like the blogger above will always feel furious when they see Umno attacking Tun Mahathir. In their mind, if Umno present leaders and their attack dogs can be so disrespectfully rude to the point of being offensive towards the person that put them there, then they will have no qualms to be abusive and malicious towards the rakyat.
And that is how you lose votes, on top of losing it due to your own lacklustre performance.
The only silver lining in all this is, only the paid spindoctors/cybertroopers from the Najib-obsessed camp and the self serving politicians are talking bad about Tun Mahathir. The majority of the people would just snigger at their brazen antics.
