Will the new Deputy Prime Minister, Ismail Sabri Yaakob, start Malaysia 2.0, just like he did with Low Yat 2?

632Shares

Mahiaddin Yassin must be serious about his Malay Malaysia vision. Yesterday, was it desperation or an error of judgement, when he promoted Ismail Sabri Yaakob as his deputy.

Ismail failed to manage the Coronavirus pandemic.

To make matters worse, Hishammuddin Hussein now heads the National Security Council. Has Mahiaddin forgotten Hishammuddin’s handling of the Lahad Datu incursion in 2013? Has he conveniently sidestepped the problem of missing helicopters and the saga of the sale of Mindef land?

Malaysian PMs promote incompetent people so that they (the PM) will look like a genius.

In 2015, after a druggie stole a mobile phone from Low Yat Plaza, the theft escalated into a riot when Mat Rempits thugs descended on the complex and caused untold damage.

The police did nothing for a few days, until it was alleged that a trader told the then IGP, Khalid Abu Bakar, “We pay you protection money. Do something to protect our businesses” Is this part of the cartel that we often hear about?

The druggie was treated like a Malay hero. Worse followed, when Ismail, in his new role as the Rural and Regional Development Minister, suggested the creation of a “Low Yat 2” electronics store dedicated to Malay traders.

Ismail wanted to empower Malay traders. He said that “Low Yat 2” should be established at a prime location in KL, to rival the original Low Yat Plaza, Malaysia’s foremost electornic goods store.

He said that “Low Yat 2” would fulfill the needs of the people who previously shopped at Low Yat Plaza for electronic gadgets and accessories. He said, “Our target is 100 percent Malay traders. There has never been a supplier from the Malays, so we will give some leeway.”

Ismails’ idea of empowering the Malays was to provide them with more crutches. He gave unfair advantage to 36 Malay traders in “Low Yat 2”. They received six-months free rent, and free renovations to start their businesses on the second and third floor of the MARA-owned Atrium Busana Mall, at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

Malaysians were even more confused because they had just been told that MARA had run out of money.

Ismail thinks that giving more handouts would give the traders “an advantage”, but if one is to succeed in the telecommunications  business, it is more important to be knowledgeable about the product, than to have free rent. He failed to appreciate the value of hard work and commitment,

Ismail Sabri ignored the harsh lessons from the NEP, that despite four decades of affirmative action policies, the Malays have not learnt much. In fact they have regressed. It is like running on the spot, and not covering any distance at all.

One Malay customer shopped at Low Yat 2 expressed dissatisfaction. He said, “I am angry with the lackadaisical attitude of some Malay vendors. Some close shop early on Friday afternoon. They don’t return for several hours. Malays cannot progress, without self-discipline. Nothing beats competition, capitalising on one’s strengths and correcting one’s weaknesses.

Around the nation, “Malay-only” malls and shop-lots, started by various government initiatives, are half-dead, and lack character. In some shops, disinterested-looking customer service representatives struggle to speak English (forget about Mandarin or other languages). They lack knowledge about their wares. The shelves are dusty and mostly empty.

Will DPM Ismail want to start Malaysia 2, to empower only the Malays. Didn’t Low Yat close shop?

    Where does the fcuking clown gomen get its fcuked up feckless dumb fcuking arseh*le 72 virgins with virgin unused and unusable tauhu in their pinheads from?

    This wan always looks like he’s in a trance, half nodding off, and has infantile sucker lips pouting to feed off a large bottle of free formula that obviously the nons have to work hard to supply to the hapless and clueless dumbfcuk overgrown and overfed toddler monkeys from Malaysia’s fcuking “supremacist” animal drug rehabilitation and rescue centre.

    Thanks to author for reminding us it is this wan and same clown Comical Ali that glorified the activities of the feral thug savages mob that made Low Yat famous. And made crime pay when it is the work of the rentamob rioter Mat Armpits.

    As with all the mollycoddling and pampling those good-for-nothing and sh*t4brains get for free to set them up for life, the result is, as usual, a resounding gigantic failure. Just how would anything work if you throw good money at fcuking moron trash of society? Does it take a genius to know it will be a massive disaster?

    Does “supremacy” mean there are only those guaranteed useless bum garbage of society to choose from to lose good money while producing untold loss of face even for those with ultra thick skin and thick skull that our kampong longkang pondlife are blessed with?

    Does it give pride to anyone with half a brain if “supremacy” means glorifying the barely literate definitely uncultured redneck scums of the earth? It is classic subhuman barely adolescent behaviour to throw bitchy tantrums and go on violent riots for those our no-class and no basic human sense in gomen have no self-esteem and no self-respect to control.

    Is our ketuanan so incredibly fcuking bad and utterly hopeless that no monkey half-decent can be found out of the whore lot of arseh*les to at least fool the world with?!

    Can it be so blooming amazing that not only our “supremacist” arseh*les have sh*t4brain, they have the fcuking ugly moron mugs to match!

    The whore fcuking gomen, and not just Niamahaidin is fcuking flying the flag with the colours of ketuanan diarrhoea! “Malay first” my divine ass, rhymes with the flying shiite sprayed out of some feeble holy ketuanan aresh*les!

    ISY being DPM does not guarantee him becoming PM. What happened is that he has been sidelined because of his mishandling of the MCO – giving preferential treatment for Malay traders while clamping down on Chinese micro SMEs. Videos abound showing Malay traders going about their business with SOP whatsoever while across the street the Chinese shops are all closed. My analysis is things were coming to a boil, our RM is falling, and things had to be taken care immediately. Hence ISY is sidelined and H20 is taking on all ISY’s responsibilities. What happens if ISY becomes PM? You know as well as I what will happen.

    This is the strategy of the Malay elites – keep their constituency continually depedant on them.

    Or like PAS, keep the simple rural folks dependant on Allah such that all things happen according to Allah’s will. Thus, we must not be surprised or shocked that Kelantanese do not make noise when told it would take another 30 to 40 years to solve the issue of water supply in Kelantan.

    Or when students die in a madrsah fire because it is Allah’s will and not the pathetic management of the madrasah in ensuring fire safety rules are followed.

    It is even more mind boggling when the police or fire bomba did not prosecute anybody for the deaths of many pupils.

    This is what a Kerajaan Allah is all about!
