Had not for the Malays (PAS members) who attended his ceramah, Nga Kor Ming would have used his mother tongue to depict Zambry as the 'black metallic'.
However, he has apologised to the Perak Mentri Besar. Even that, he said the Press and bloggers have taken out his speech out of context, and that it has been politicised for the next general election.
Now that the whole world has watched and listened to what he exactly said, perhaps an apology is not enough.
He also called Zambry 'haram jadah' (read Stopthelies). In general context, it means 'bastard' or 'child who is born out of wedlock (anak haram). And had not for his supporters from PAS and PKR, he would have called Zambry a 'yau peng chai'!
He has yet to apologise. Will he or will he not?
I have heard and seen verbal war between BN and the Opposition MPs during the 1980s. 'Haram jadah' was used in the Dewan Rakyat and Speaker Zahir Ismail had to apply the power vested in him to put things under control. Those involved then retracted their words and apologised to the floor.
It happened during the era of 'hardcore' MPs like Hu Sepang, Shahidan Kassim, Tamrin Ghafar, Bujang Ulis, Osman Abdul, Chen Man Hin and others. Some senior MPs today were also part of that circus.
However, it gets more rampant these days and people like Nga is not only getting labeled as racist but is becoming a liability to this own party, the DAP. I wonder if the party's disciplinary committee will take action against him.
Karpal Singh has rapped Nga for that but other leaders in DAP remained silent. However, I don't think any action will be taken against him. They need people like Nga as a political stabilizer!
And who is the DAP leader who calls Malaysian Indians stupid?
But one thing for sure, people like Nga sure has a bad breath!
