WHEN BN announced that its candidate for the Cameron Highlands by-election would be Ramli Mohd Nor, a native from the Semai tribe in Cameron Highlands, Lim Guan Eng said Pakatan Harapan was “shaken”.
It was an astute observation because Harapan’s candidate for the by-election, M Manogaran, was so “shaken” that he immediately put his foot into his mouth.
“They really don’t understand. You see, the Malays don’t even buy kuih (cakes/sweet pastries) from Orang Asli vendors. I don’t think they will go all out and vote for an Orang Asli.
“The Malays will ask, ‘How come we don’t have a Malay candidate? How come you put an Orang Asli?’ Chinese, Indians will not vote for the Orang Asli,” Manogaran said.
What an asinine mind. He takes the cake for being half-baked.
It is obvious Manogaran does not buy into the message DAP has been pushing for decades, that Malaysia is for all Malaysians regardless of ethnicity, religion, etc.
Nor did he draw any lesson from the virtual decimation of race-based parties like the MCA and MIC.
Descending to his level of mentally-challenged logic, why should Malays, Chinese and Orang Asli buy kuih from an Indian?
Not only wouldn’t I buy kuih from him, I wouldn’t want him as my lawyer, because his first line of defence when his shit hit the fan was to bleat: not I say one, other people say, I just telling you what people say.
Ayo! Compound his offence by laying the blame on the people of Cameron Highlands for being racists and living in mental ghettos.
DAP leaders who are less mentally challenged must have beaten some sense into his skull, because the next day he said “sorry”.
