Anwar "Trojan Horse" Ibrahim

Posted by Simon Templar On Wednesday, March 03, 2010 0 comments

Another defection today. Regardless of how expected this defection is, still no action was taken although Pakatan knows that this is imminent.

PKR is truly out-smarted by UMNO. Or is what we are seeing now the plan after all?

Let us talk conspiracy theory. Yup. Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory.

And my theory is that there is a big trojan horse in Pakatan. And that trojan horse is none other than Anwar Ibrahim himself. (Ooooo... I can sense the heat of boiling blood out there already).

And you know what, if I were to write this 6 months ago, there will be not much of me left. But today, I actually think that there will be quite a bit of you out there who buy this.

But before we move any further, let’s address 2 common myths popular among Anwaristas.

First is that Najib and his aides are stupid and bumble their way through. The truth is they are not. Najib is a decently smart person. And his aides are definitely no idiots. These guys are way smarter than the average Joes we have out there. Chances are any of Najib boys are smarter than you. I don’t think too many of you score that high on MENSA or graduate from Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, MIT or Yale. Well most of them are. Every step taken would have been calculated with the next 5 in mind.

Myth number 2 is that Anwar is god’s gift to mankind. The truth is again a resounding no. Anwar is a politician. And last I checked, politicians are not very good people. Anwar is on a personal vendetta. And he is on a personal mission to be the Prime Minister of Malaysia. You are nothing but pawns that get him there.

Back to our conspiracy theory.

Look. Anwar in on trial for Sodomy II. If I were Anwar, I'd swear never to get back to prison again - at whatever cost. And I think that is his stand. Who do you think he is? Jesus? Remember how he ran for his life to the Turkish Embassy when news of Sodomy II first crept up? This guy fears the jail cell; and rightly so too.

Put yourself in Anwar's shoes. Do you go ahead with the trial knowing that anything can be done to convict you, wait for Pakatan to form government and then release you (a risky route) or do you strike a deal with UMNO to keep your ass out of prison (the guaranteed safe route)? Life is tough in there. The jail cell is no kids’ playground. If convicted, chances are Anwar will have to spend the last days of his life in there. With a really bad back. I would rather commit suicide eh. I sincerely doubt if Anwar can take even 3 months is jail.

I believe that everyone has a strong element of self-centredness within them (not too sure about Nelson Mandela and Mother Theresa; but am sure there are more than meets the eye with them). As such, I say that Anwar chose the latter of the above 2 options. How else can you explain the inaction by PKR on the frogs? That Anwar is sincere in cleaning up PKR for the next GE so much so that it is best to know who the bad blood are? Or that he is really hapless with all that is happenning? Or that he is too caught up with his court case? It takes a really naive person to believe that. It is easy to see that all is too smooth sailing for UMNO now. Way too smooth. It just looks too plain easy. No fight, no nothing.

And how does Najib fit into the picture above. Well we know that Najib is close to the end of his premiership if nothing is done. He has all to lose if he doesn't gamble big. Maybe to Muhyiddin or maybe to Anwar. So, why not go “all-in” and “convince” Anwar to play ball.

If Anwar plays ball and helps Najib, then Najib will let him go. If Anwar does not play ball, then lets take it to the wire. What more has Najib got to lose? Meanwhile, Anwar will be suffering like no tomorrow in jail. And will probably decide to pull his spine out with his fingers after 3 months.

So, I do not think that Anwar is going to jail.

Here’s the deal. Anwar allows for Najib to strengthen his position within UMNO. The crossovers will appease UMNO who is growing impatient with Najib. With UMNO now back as the driving force, the Muhyiddin problem is sorted out.

The 2/3 parliament majority is not important. If BN gets it, well the next GE will be a non-event with the gerrymandering as RPK wrote.

If BN does not get the 2/3 majority now, well all is still fine. When Najib frees Anwar, the war has already been won.

One, the international media will hail Najib as a true reformer and saviour of the new Malaysia. A complete departure from the style of his politicial guru, Tun M. And Najib gets to move away from his Tun M prodigy tag.

Two, the judiciary system gets an overnight thorough cleaning and starts afresh with renewed integrity. We know that is not true, but the perception of the court will be changed. With a perceived fair court, even RPK will lose credit for not coming home.

Three, Najib's image gets a new jest. Enough fence-sitting voters would have been won over to give him another chance in reforming the country. And these fence sitters are whom the vote fighting is all about. On top of that, Malays who have deserted UMNO and BN will be having second thoughts about voting Pakatan.

So all Najib needs to do is to convince Anwar that he cannot survive another jail term. Fight and get jailed or lose the fight and enjoy your freedom? Anwar cannot fight the system. We know and he knows that the system is controlled. BN has proven to be capable of showering themselves with mud so as to win and they are capable of doing it again. And Najib is at the end of his wits, mind you.

Oh and what about Anwar’s personal sexual preferences? I do not know if Anwar has a certain likeness to certain parts of the male anatomy but you can never ever discount that. Who are you to say that he is no Adam Lambert? There is also always the MCKK factor. And don't we all know of MCKK's dark little 'backyard' secret. But gay or bi or not, Anwar will go to jail if UMNO wants him to.

So, has Anwar sold us out?

Will Anwar go to jail?

My bet is that you will not see Anwar in jail. I am quite confident of that. And that is not because his lawyers will win him Sodomy II.

Food Fight! You Ready To Get Dirty?

Lousy politicians. That's what Pakatan politicians are. No, not the inexperienced but the seasoned ones. The inexperienced ones are still trying to grapple what is going on.

I can comprehend RPK's points in his article "Head hunt for candidates, and do it now!". People like Tan Tee Beng are Gerakan discards who was not going to be fielded by BN in GE 12. He badly needed to survive in politics, PR needed a candidate and they gave him a life line. It was a win-win situation for both sides. But with no dough pouring in ala BN style politics, it is not a wonder that he left.

MPs and YBs are leaving. Leaving with Pakatan's seats. And the seats are way more important that the person himself or herself. We don't care about the personalities but we care about the seats. Our seats, actually.

What has Pakatan done to prevent these people from leaving? From what we can see, not much. All we are getting are 'good riddance' statements. But that is not good enough, is it? To Pakatan, PR is like a hotel. We welcome you to stay at all times; but lousy guests can walk through the front door any time.

A hotel guest is a hotel guest, good or bad. A person who needs a hotel and does not stay at your hotel will stay at your competitor's hotel. Similarly, an MP is an MP. A YB is a YB. They are better of on your side than on the other.

Sometimes you have really horrendous guests. But do you allow the guest to leave the hotel and carry along with them the beds, the lamps and the toilet sinks?

If the Hees, Tans and Zahrains want to leave, by all means do. But they will have to quit not only the party but also the seats they have won. I can hear thousands of you shouting 'Yeah right. Like it's so easy!'. Nope, it is not easy. But I didn't say we have to use the word 'please'.

This is politics!

Politics is not clean. It has never been and it will never be. You simply do not survive politics being Mr. Nice Guy or Ms. Pretty Honest. If being a little cunning is too much to ask for, then quit politics and go be a school teacher. If being manipulative is deemed morally not acceptable by you, then quit politics and again, go be a school teacher. Make that a kindergarten teacher.

I am surprised that no shit has been thrown at the frogs. Literally and laterally.

Read this: everyone has shit in them. Yes, even the Dalai Lama. And we all know that the frogs have a lot of shit. A lot. What did we make of them? Nothing but some press statements that they have shit and that UMNO is buying them. Dude, that's not gonna work. You are painting them as bad asses, but we already know that they are bad asses. We are not stupid and blind.

You've got to make a great deal super big heck of a fuss out of it my dear Pakatan leaders. You've got to pressure them into making it hard for them to leave with the seats. All I know is we have no professional psychologist within Pakatan. Nobody within Pakatan understands the human mind. It's time you guys move with time. Have you seen the type of doctors and what is and what not they have at the grounds of Manchester United and Chelsea - all for some school dropouts who kick a ball around?

You've got to understand the psychological warfare game. You've got to play with the minds. Anwar is so good in hypnotising the audience with his speech but he is not capable of toying with the minds of the people who work for him.

I am not saying you take a watch and dangle it in front of the frogs. But you've got to know how to pressure them. Heck, if they end up committing suicide with the excessive pressure, I can live with that. The frogs are not selling just their body, mind and soul to the devil. They are not selling out just PKR or DAP or PAS or even Pakatan Rakyat. They are selling out the rakyat! They are selling out the future of the rakyat! They are selling out your children's future! And we should still be nice to them? I'll be damned if the answer is an audible yes.

We Malaysians are desperate. If we do not do it in GE 13, we will not get to do it in our present lifetime. And you will forever owe your descendants a better future. And these frogs are jeopardising our fight. They are forcing us into thinking of leaving our home and our country for the sake of our next generation. And we should be soft with them?

What the hell is wrong with Pakatan? Too much conscience? Why is there no hundreds and thousands of people camping outside Zahrain's house forcing him to quit his MP position? You guys enjoy organising thousands and thousands of people to protest outside parliament, around KL city centre and outside the King's palace but you cannot do the same to your own scumbags? Why no demonstrations outside the homes of papa frog, mama frog, sister frog, brother frog, auntie frog, uncle frog and whoever else related to them. No, we don't drag people's family into these? Fuck you. The frogs are toying with my family's livelihood and future and I cannot pressure their family? (Double middle fingers up! Nah!)

Scoop up all their wrongdoings. All. Gather information from everyone they know. And you cannot even find a tax evasion of RM1? Get the evidence. Make a big hoohah. RPK will be more than glad to do the honour I am sure. Lodge police reports. Lodge reports with MACC. Again make a big hoohah when you do so. Put the police under pressure. Put MACC under pressure. Charge them.

And Pakatan even get brownie points out of doing so. Pakatan is so clean that they even lodge reports against their own members. Brilliant dei... brilliant!

And if UMNO helps with one report, throw in another 2. If the wrong-doings never end, UMNO cannot take the person. Even UMNO will change their target. And if the person finally gets convicted, we have a by-election. Hooray!

There can be a whole lot more we can think off. These are coming off my head as I type. Think out of the box, Pakatan. If they are not with us, they are against us. If you can drag Najib through all the mud you guys are throwing at him, you can do the same to the frogs. Are they all not the same? Actually the frogs are worse than Najib because Najib never pretended to be on our side.

We must be given the power to take the seats we have given the frogs. And without you actually knowing it, the power is in our very own mouths and hands. Remember when Hee Yit Frog's family was refused by the pasar aunties to sell them vegetables at the market? And the jibes and whispers that her family got. You've got to understand the human mind. And the Asian 'face' and family name. All this happened after she jumped. I doubt if she would have decided the same had 'work' been done prior to her jumping. The pressure people, the pressure. 24/7 pressure from party, pressure from the crowd outside your house and the pressure from within your family. Your kids will be having nightmares. Your spouse will crack. Your parents have already cracked. Your relatives shouting at your face to warn you. Your brother threatening to disown you. Faces of everyone known to you is splashed all over the internet and emails. The pressure people, the pressure.

But Pakatan did nothing. They are politicians with conscience, konon. God's ultimate gift to mankind. Pious PAS thinks that God will reward their patience one day. PKR believes that Anwar is the second coming. Lim Guan Eng thinks that heaven owes it to him to form the next government because he got jailed for fighting evil.

Wake up you Pakatan idiots. You are giving our future away, you hopeless fools.
