Having lost any chance of resurrecting 1 Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), Lim Kit Siang is now playing the ‘Patriot’ theme to try and justify his actions against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
Apparently Kit Siang knows that he has been exposed as someone (like Tun Mahathir) who will say and do anything to get what he wants.
Therefore in an attempt to stop the bloodletting on his increasingly damaged image, Lim Kit Siang is now telling Malaysians his actions (political coup attempt, fabrication and outright lies) against Prime Minister Najib Razak were because he wants to ‘Save Malaysia’.
The irony thing is Lim Kit Siang actions are akin to his trying to burn down the country he claims he wants to save.
All of his negative comments he has made about the nation’s economy were an attempt to scare off existing investment in the Malaysian and any future investment; then he would proclaim that the losses are all due to the lack of confidence foreign investors have in Prime Minister Najib’s government.
Today, there is little doubt that all the new investment projects that the Prime Minister is responsible for is a thorn in the plans of Kit Siang and his DAP-led opposition.
Lim Kit Siang, Tun Mahathir and others would like to see Malaysia in financial ruins rather than having investors have confidence in Malaysia’s present and its future.
And Kit Siang calls that Patriotism; trying to engineer the suffering of Malaysians so he and others can try and force the resignation of Malaysia’s elected leader.
When did that action become patriotic?
For most people, it takes more than pronouncing oneself to be patriotic to actually be patriotic. After all, isn’t that the same type of line a con man says to the potential victim; you can trust me, I’m an honest person.
When people starting that they are honest, trustworthy or patriotic; run for the hills.
People who are endowed with those characteristic (honesty, trustworthiness and patriotism) do not have to try and convince other people; it is part of their internal makeup.
With Lim Kit Siang trying to come across as patriotic comes off as a little sleazy. He (Kit Siang) even wants to debate with the Communication and Multimedia and Minister Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak to prove that he (the former) is more patriotic. (here)
All of Kit Siang’s pronouncements of patriotism seem to be an attempt to pull his name and reputation of the mud that it has been wallowing in. Therefore continue to observe Lim Kit Siang’s non patriotic actions as they speak louder than his words!
