Azmin is immodest

It was immodest for Azmin Ali to call Tun Dr Mahathir 'a fallen leader'. Some people may label Azmin a wretch for uttering such words while others would regard it as improper, like what DPM Muhyiddin said (here).

Perhaps Azmin, the PKR vice-president should look back at where he used to belong. When he was with Anwar Ibrahim at the DPM's office, he was full of praise for the former premier. I remember him describing Dr M as a leader everyone should respect and appreciate.

That was about 15 years ago. And now that he is with the Opposition, he finds it necessary to batter the 'warlord' whose Cabinet decided to sack Anwar. Or he was finding an 'overkill' element prior to the PKR party elections.

But still, I dont find it necessary to say such things, especially when you dont really understand what a fallen leader is. Obviously it is not Dr M, who has steered Malaysia into what it is today. With an average economic growth of 8 per cent throughout his 22 years tenancy as a Prime Minister, switching Malaysia from an agricultural to an industrial-based economy, reducing poverty from 28 per cent in 1980 to less that 4 per cent at the time of his retirement, placing Malaysia well on the diplomatic map, making Malaysia as one of the world's most competitive economies...etc, etc... you called him a fallen leader?

What Azmin said was a sock to Malaysia and the majority of its people who see Dr M as a true leader. Even those who used to call him a dictator and oppose his policies have high respect for him. For a politician as young as Azmin, such a statement backfires easily - not only from those who support the government but also from those who are not.

A fallen leader refers to someone who fails his country and his people, a leader who fails to bring about development to his country, someone who is highly corrupt, a leader who practices corporate and legalistic entity, one who puts his country into disarray, someone who cant accept defeat and a leader who easily sells his soul to foreign forces.

No, Dr M is not such. I think Azmin admits the fact but as he is with Anwar, he cant say good things about Dr M anymore. We can understand that.

I hope Azmin doesnt turn from 'bad to evil'. He can stay with the Opposition but he should stay clear with his own good conscience. He should be able to distinguish between the moon and the sun...

He had fallen a long time ago on his back by giving free service to Anwar Ibrahim. Look whose talking.

azmin and anwar? huaarrggghhh!!!

who is the fallen leader here, mahathir or anwar or azmin?

lion king said...

its normal for someone who switched camp to attack his former team mates and leaders. azmin is such but he has forgotten that for him to call dr m a fallen leader, he should stand before a mirror and ask - what is anwar and what am i doing with him? so, he must leave anwar before the latter falls again...

saja je azmin nak cari publisiti murah. dia jarang jadi bahan headline akhbr dan media.

ni je peluang yang dia nampak.

kalau nak kata biadap tu, memanglah biadap.

bodohnya pun banyak. macam mana la nak jadi ahli politik yang dihormati macam ni!

Azmin was up there, in all his 'glory' and money because Tun made it possible for him.

Inilah dia peribahasa "seperti melepaskan anjing tersepit"...

Let me say something simple that azmin and people like him can understand..... azmin, you're an IDIOT.

They would really run the mile to score some brownies, don't they?

TDM may have made some unpopular decisions like sacking homosexuals or steering the country away from poverty, but without him, Malaysians would probably still live on trees.

Buck up Azmin. Don't stoop so low as it may only expose your immaturity even more.

A GOOD MAN DOES NOTHING.

kepada azmin, biarlah kita jadi melayu, melayu yang tahu mengenang jasa pemimpin dan menghormati golongan tua. biarlah kita jadi orang islam yang tahu bersyukur dan berterima kasih kepada tuhan dan pemimpin serta ibu bapa kita. jadilah seorang ahli politik yang disegani kerana pendirian kita yang sederhana dan ideologi yang membina, dan bukannya menyemai sifat buruk dan menghasut orang lain agar membenci seseorang yang pemimpin. jika sdr sendiri ditakdirkan menjadi pemimpin negara suatu hari nanti, sdr juga akan ada kelebihan dan kelemahannya. kita semua manusia. respect is to be earned, not bought. seburuk mana pun manusia, dia tetap ada nilai tertentu. janganlah kerana politik, kita terpaksa melanggar adab dan susila melayu dan islam. janganlah kerana politik, kita sanggup mengenepikan pendirian dan menipu perasaan sendiri. salam

this guy is too much. i never expect him to go overboard by making such a statement.

how personal politics can change a man!

saya hilang rasa hormat terhadap azmin yang selama ini saya sangka berpendirian sederhana dan tidak terikut-ikut dengan cara melampau pembangkang.

nampaknya dia tidak wajar dihormati langsung.

bukan saja kurang ajar malah lebih teruk daripada lim kit siang sendiri!

What can you say of a "Dayus" man who lend his wife to his boss, and under cross-examination in court admit that he feels closer to Anwar by the incident! So, dear friends, PKR is an illegitimate child, a by-product of unison between the Screwer (Anwar) and the Screwed (Azmin)!
