Another of Khairy's devious look. The usual pose has a tongue sticking out. But he is no Michael Jordan.
The usual suspects is all there.
Dato Nazri Aziz, Dato Khaled Nordin, and Dato Reezal Merican. No wonder Tengku Dato Adnan Mansor was making a typical pre-2008 General Election in-denial remark with Reezal Merican.
The media players were New Straits Times, Berita Harian, The Star and The Malaysian Insider. The NST's (and BH) subtle propaganda against Perkasa was expected. As usual, the Malaysian Insider (MI)'s report was spinned. However, they left clues that something was not right. Furthermore there was muted publicity from Chinese newspapers.
Ku Nan's statement that Barisan Nasional had unanimously rejected Perkasa and UMNO will not support Perkasa does not jive. It is Khairy that has been leading a war against Perkasa to support stance by MCA President Dato Dr Chua Soi Lek, Youth head Dato Dr Wee Ka Siong and Gerakan leaders.
Perhaps, he is motivated by an old ex-to-grind against Dato Ibrahim Ali. However, there is someone on his payroll that connects the dots between Ku Nan and Nazri Aziz. Despite the association, it still points to Khairy as the evil devious hands driving the wedge between UMNO and Perkasa.
Again, Khairy made an intentional mistake to incite anger against UMNO. He is playing his espionage sabotage role to alienate Malay voters from UMNO.
Currently UMNO is now in a better position amongst the Malays. Since the Bukit Gantang by-election, the trend is Malay voters are moving away from PAS and PKR. Beseige with endless problems and long list of issues, the Malay majority voters lost trust with PAS and PKR.
These was discussed in both parties' weekend retreat. They realised they could not improve on their Malay voters. DAP and PKR NGO activits are not making it easier.
Indicators points to Malay support leaving Pakatan, but they are still holding back until a change in attitude by UMNO before delivering their votes. The statement of Ku Nan and Khairy's theatrics for the past few months had not endeared the Malays with UMNO.
It is crystal clear Khairy is assisting to sabotage from inside to prevent Malay voters return to UMNO. Speculation is he is waiting for former UKEC buddy, Rafizi Ramli to win the Ketua AMK position to open the passage for him to jump over. For many years, Khairy had been in touch with Azmin and their rendervous is at Azmin's Qaswa Motor at Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
For Khairy to accuse close association of UMNO with Perkasa will alienate BN from Chinese voters, it shows UMNO's incompetent Youth Head doesn't know his job.
There is no benefit to derive from playing the gallery of MCA and Gerakan. They hardly contribute to voters registration. See charts below:
Khairy's issue with Perkasa is a personal ideological ego.
In fact, Khairy and MCA/Gerakan are helping Pakatan by infuriating Perkasa's members and sympathisers to burden the political plight of UMNO and BN.
Khairy's friendly media are also batting for the other side.
The Star is clearly taking a pro-Chinese stance and giving coverage also to DAP. This is to help ease MCA's move to Pakatan in the event it does so.
The link between Malay liberal-led NST and pro-opposition, The Malaysian Insiders with the agenda of Khairy and Pakatan has been established in this blog's earlier postings.
NST is in Kalimullah's hands and the link with The Malaysian Insiders is personal. NST has Zainur, Rashid Yusof and Syed Nadzri leading the editorial.
Syed Nadzri's deputy Group Editor, Kamarul Idris has a girlfriend in MI. She is Joan Lau, sister to MI's Leslie Lau. Leslie's wife, Lee Siew Lian is still in NST, last being CEO's office. Jahabar, Leslie Liu and Joan Liu are the hands running MI.
These are the media players that helped to blow the issue against Perkasa initiated by Khairy. They had used Ku Nan and blast it for the raya holidays.
Ku Nan was only heading the BN's Secretary General meeting. The stance made from his statement should only come out from UMNO Supreme Council Meeting or BN Council Meeting.
There were none such meetings lately.
Ku Nan is effectively trying to put words into the mouths of the UMNO President, Dato Seri Najib and Deputy President, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin. Both have kept quiet to ignore.
They hoped both will not make a statement to jeorpadise relations with other 13 BN components. Both can only make statements in defense of UMNO or BN and not for Perkasa.
Few MCA leaders express support to Ku Nan's statement position but Chua Soi Lek strangely refused to give statement. Publicity given by the Chinese papers were likewarm.
Few Chinese papers seems to be absence from Ku Nan's press conference and made report based on MI's report. The stories were only placed it in page 7 and 11.
Sin Chew Jit Poh, which is expected to give this story publicity, did not report it.
Other than vicious words of Nazri and Khaled, there were more words of support from UMNO leaders such as Noh Omar, Khir Toyo, and Ahmad Maslan.
Despite attempt to spin Ahmad Zahid Hamidi's words against Perkasa, TV Awani's news report shows otherwise. Zahid can be a bit of a lallang, an incompetent lallang. But lets leave him alone for now.
From our sources near PM and DPM, both had not instructed Ku Nan to take such stance. He had taken a stance with grave implication towards UMNO's "fixed deposit" of support and without any directive from Najib or Muhyiddin.
Ku Nan's statement that UMNO will not support Ibrahim Ali and Perkasa, and furthermore will place candidates in Pasir Mas, is moronic.
Has UMNO made decisions on candidates for General Election, if they hae decided the time for General Election? More funny is, did Ibrahim Ali wrote to seek support from UMNO for his Pasir Mas seats?
Ignore PAS's opportunitic remark that Ibrahim Ali will not run under PAS banner again.
For that matter, did Perkasa wrote to UMNO for support? Why does the affair of an NGO raised such concern of UMNO or BN? They should focus on their work.
If BN is concerned about Perkasa, why then UMNO is not steering BN to take positions against Su Qiu, Hua Zhou, Dong Jiao Zhong, and Hindraf?
Ku Nan had been made to look foolish for being used Khairy.
Maybe he is actually in co-hort with Khairy. The typical trait of an UMNO man resisting change is when they believed they are in positions of strength, they start to behave arrogantly, vindictive and back to the usual powerplay.
He had said he believed UMNO is not weak. Is it too soon to return to the era of Abdullah Badawi and repeat the same crap?
Najib should end all these nonsense once and for all. Will he?
