Anyway, today’s debate erupted into chaos when the question of Memali was raised. This was a ‘Nothing to Hide’ debate and yet Mahathir tried to hide the truth. Mahathir still insists he was in China when Memali happened although Tun Musa Hitam had already revealed that Mahathir was hiding in his office in Kuala Lumpur and did not travel to China until the following day.

The news item below says it all. And you can see the videos of the fiasco here: Nothing To Hide 2.0 Debate Turns Into Chaos When Memali Was Raised.

This morning I received a number of messages asking why Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak is not going to attend the event and debate Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad regarding 1MDB. First of all, nobody wins a debate. We have seen so many debates by a number of government leaders and opposition leaders in the past and in the end nothing is achieved.

The government supporters will go home saying they won the debate while the opposition supporters will go home saying they won the debate. Both sides will declare they won the debate and those who believed what they believed before the debate started will continue to believe what they believe after the debate ends.

13 August 2017: the day of infamy and ultimate shame for Mahathir when he had to beat a hasty retreat from his own event

If you think a debate is going to change people’s minds then you are more stupid than you look. If you hold a debate called “Which is the true word of God, the Bible or the Qur’an?” do you think Muslims are all going to convert to Christianity after the debate, or Christians are going to convert to Islam?

Both sides will say the other side lost and is talking crap. Nothing is going to change. For all intents and purposes a debate is an ego-trip to talk big and pretend that you won. And you merely impress your own supporters who were already your supporters before the debate started and will remain your supporters at the end of the debate.

So why do they want Najib to debate Mahathir today? What were they hoping to achieve? Or were they planning to attack the Prime Minister? Did someone carry a gun today with intent to shoot Najib dead as soon as he steps onto stage? What security measures did they conduct? Or was there a gun already smuggled in earlier when they prepared the hall?

I personally know someone who offered to assassinate Najib on condition if anything happens to him we guarantee that we will look after his family. I told this chap to stop talking nonsense and to never repeat that again. And this chap is a lawyer mind you, so he is not a stupid kampung person.

Najib would have been stupid to attend today’s debate. And we already wrote about this yesterday in the article Mahathir Will Be Shamelessly Shadowboxing Tomorrow. In that article we said:

Actually Mahathir tak malu. What he does not seem to realise is that Najib is a Prime Minister while he (Mahathir) is no longer a Prime Minister. So Mahathir is not of the same level and status as Najib. In fact, Mahathir has absolutely no status whatsoever. He is not a Member of Parliament while Najib is. He is not a party president while Najib is. Mahathir not only has no status to debate Najib, he also has no status to debate the other 221 Members of Parliament as well because he holds absolutely no position. (READ MORE HERE )

Mahathir winning his debate with an empty chair

One famous Tok Guru said: timba kena cari telaga, bukan telaga cari timba. That means you go to seek out those with knowledge, not those with knowledge come to seek you out. In this case if Mahathir is seeking knowledge concerning 1MDB then he must go and meet Najib, not Najib must go and meet him. Mahathir has got it backwards.

Anyway, today’s debate erupted into chaos when the question of Memali was raised. This was a ‘Nothing to Hide’ debate and yet Mahathir tried to hide the truth. Mahathir still insists he was in China when Memali happened although Tun Musa Hitam had already revealed that Mahathir was hiding in his office in Kuala Lumpur and did not travel to China until the following day.

Today’s event was a purely PPBM affair. There were no Umno or PAS people there. If Najib had attended the event then the place would have been flooded with Umno and PAS supporters. Even with only PPBM supporters the debate turned to chaos. Can you imagine what would have happened had there also been Umno and PAS supporters in that crowd of about 1,500?

DAP keeps telling the Chinese that Mahathir has changed, he is a reformed man, and so on. The first syarat to reform is to admit your crimes or sins and ask for forgiveness plus pledge never to repeat them again. Mahathir refuses to even admit his crimes and sins. So what change or reforms is DAP talking about? And this was what upset many people today and transformed the whole place into chaos. The only change in Mahathir is that in the past he hated DAP and now he hates Umno and loves DAP.

Mahathir, dejected and retreating after a slipper was thrown at him

Today’s chaos is just a taste of what to expect in the coming general election. DAP and Pakatan Harapan have been spreading hate for too long. And this has consequences. And today is an example of those consequences.

Do you think that playing the hate card is not going to have any consequences? Today there was so much hate and yet it is still only between PPBM and PPBM supporters. What do you think would have happened today had Najib turned up and 5,000 Umno supporters came with him to face the 1,500 PPBM supporters?

Let me tell you what would have happened. First the Malays from Umno and the Malays from PPBM would have engaged in a fight to the death. Then the chaos would have spilled over onto the streets and some Malays would have taken their geram out on the Chinese. And then 13 August 2017 would have been phase two of 13 May 1969.

And if you think not then ask PPBM to organise a Nothing To Hide 3.0 debate and challenge Umno Youth that if they really anak jantan and have telurthen turn up in full force. And on that day many Chinese will run away to Singapore for a few days, just in case, and will return to Malaysia only when things are calm again.

Trust me on this one. And why do you think DAP supports today’s Nothing To Hide 2.0 debate? Well, that is because DAP wants to see Malays fight Malays to the death so that they can gauge how badly Malays have been split and whether that can help the DAP-led Pakatan Harapan win the next general election. Instead, what DAP witnessed was the day PPBM died.

This is what you get when you play with fire

Yes, 13 August 2017, the day PPBM died. PPBM is finished. It has only 29,000 members and all are just like what you witnessed today. Do you think the Chinese dare vote for Pakatan Harapan knowing that PPBM is part of the coalition and the PPBM Malays are like those you saw today?

The Chinese know that what they saw today is what they are going to see in the next general election. In fact, many Chinese might not even come out to vote and will instead go on holiday the week of the next general election.

PPBM not only committed suicide today. They killed the DAP-led Pakatan Harapan as well. Now the Chinese are not so sure whether a Chinese Tsunami is such a good idea after all if what they saw today is what they are going to see the night of Polling Day GE14.

Well done PPBM. You achieved what Umno could never have achieved. You demonstrated that hate politics has consequences. And the Chinese will never want to accept those consequences if this is how PPBM plays politics.


A riot erupted at the venue of Nothing To Hide 2.0 event featuring Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, here this evening.

The incident started about 5.30pm saw a flare thrown towards the stage, followed by water bottles and chairs, before a mob started chasing after several people to a parking area opposite Dewan Raja Muda Musa at Selangor Youth and Culture Complex where the event was held.

The commotion inside the hall also saw another flare tossed towards a section where media members were seated.

It happened shortly after an audience asked the former premier about Memali incident in Kedah in 1985, and whether Dr Mahathir took responsibility of the incident which saw 18 including four policemen killed.

Dr. Mahathir however did not get the chance to answer the question when provocation started as he was about to speak.

He was then escorted out to safety, together with his wife Tun Dr. Siti Asmah Mohd Ali and other Pakatan Harapan leaders. They are believed to have been taken to their cars.

The New Straits Times reporters who were there saw several members of the audience, including those wearing Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia Armada youth wing’s t-shirts, assaulted at the parking area.

A group also started venting their anger towards members of the press for taking their pictures, and shoved several photographers. It is learnt that several including female reporters were also kicked by unidentified assailants.

The incident continued for about half an hour, where a mob also chased after a man back into the hall and started beating him up, before a group of men believed to be security personnel for the event took the man away and shielded him from the mob.
