A strange departure from previous rants. Read on and I'll explain why at the end.
Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin supports a theory offered by former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad, that Pakatan Rakyat would hold violent demonstrations should they lose the next general election.
In his speech today to launch the Kuala Lumpur BN machinery, Muhyiddin also agreed with the former PM that the Bersih 3.0 rally was a precursor to post-election chaos blaming it on Pakatan Rakyat's "grand design".
He claimed that Bersih 3.0 was unnecessary, because the authorities had allegedly made various attempts to improve the electoral system.
"Why do they still organised Bersih 3.0 after all these? Maybe Mahathir is right, (the opposition) did not get the support as they expected, so they tried to paint a bad picture of the government.
"I believe this is a psychological warfare. They spread the allegations that our electoral system is not clean, instigate the rakyat, so that once we win they can declare the election as illegitimate.
"And they will mobilise the people to go to the street to topple the government, like what happened in the Middle East," ...
Since 1969, the BN government has been threatening the citizens that there would be violence and chaos should BN lose.
So multitudes of fearful citizens went out to cast their ballots in favour of BN. All to avoid violence and chaos.
Now that they claim Pakatan Rakyat is out to cause chaos "upon losing", shouldn't that mean that everyone ought to vote in FAVOUR of Pakatan Rakyat then, to avoid violence and chaos? :-)
Seems rational to me.
