Why is Kit Siang getting too personal?
Salleh Said Keruak
FMT reported that Lim Kit Siang has mocked me and called me and another Umno leader from Sabah ‘two Umno stooges’. If standing up for your party and defending your party against lies, slander and attacks makes one a stooge then every politician in the world would be a stooge of his or her own party.
Has not DAP sacked members who did not toe the party line? When people support their party you call them stooges and when they do not toe the party line you call them traitors and sack them. Kit Siang needs to make up his mind as to how he expects party leaders to show loyalty. Would not all those DAP leaders who disagree with working with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad but keep quiet and do not dare oppose the move also be considered stooges?
Of late Kit Siang seems to delight in name-calling and uses all sorts of derogatory names to people who are not on the same page as him. Just two years ago he visited the MACC office and sang their praises and today he has upset them wth his ‘three monkeys’ analogy and asked its Commissioner, Dzulkifi Ahmad, and the senior officers of the MACC to take a course in the English language. So, when he thought he could use the MACC to hurt Umno the MACC is his friend and when they are no longer useful to DAP they are ‘the three monkeys’.
