Some of you may have saw The Mighty Tun on BBC's Hardtalk last nite. Suffice to say the old man just badgered his way thru the interview in his usual manner.
As usual, anything the interviewer said was dismissed as misinformation, lies or twisted truth. When faced with his abysmal human rights record & the fact that he regularly imprisoned his opponents, he said, "What hundreds of people. Who are they. You tell me? I don't know where you are getting your information from".
Er . . . Tun . . . Lim Kit Siang, Karpal Singh, Anwar, Chandra Muzzafar, Abuya & gang, to name but a few?
But when he is quoted regarding his anti-Jewish statements from a few years ago where he said that "the Jews are ruling the world by proxy. They have become arrogant & will make a mistake. Our opportunity will arise soon." This was FACT according to him.
Other example of "fact"according to the Mighty Tun include :
The judiciary? No, the Mighty Tun did not appoint the judges. He merely installed those who were recommended to him by the CJ. And the whole VK Lingam episode was a blackmail tactic by Anwar.
Anwar himself? No, The Mighty Tun did NOT crucify him & let him rot in jail fer trumped up charges. The court impartially decided that he was guilty. And oh, the black eye was not a serious injury meted out by the IGP. Besides it was a good electoral ploy!!!
Fooking hell. He sat there with a forced smile on his face putting on a brave front while he was attacked on all fronts.
Now, to me it was a pitiful sight of an old man trying to pull some political weight in an arena where he is no longer considered important. But a quick perusal of some blogs, you will see that quite a few still are in awe of him. They say, "waaah, pity that dumb mat salleh la, kena from our Tun".
Ladies & gentlemen, me presents to you the Deluded Malaysian(s), first, the one that featured on Hardtalk & those who thought his performance was nothing short of sterling. See fer yerself & me look forward to reading yer comments.
