Boleh tahan juga. The hot blog Stop The Lies carried two stories about a character called Tommy Thomas.
Tommy Thomas is an Indian lawyer who has written an article about why he will not vote for the BN. Among other things he has said that the BN is corrupt, oppressive, does not provide opportunities and a few other things.
Stop The Lies Blog has carried two replies to Tommy Thomas. Here is a gist of both. You can click on the links to read the full posts.
- After reading Tommy Thomas’s ‘Voting for the Future’ in Malaysian Insider, I am tempted to say to him: Go back to Canada.
- Born in Malaysia of immigrant parents, Tommy Thomas set up legal practice in Kuala Lumpur in the 1970s.
- Malaysia was good for him until the 1980s when he uprooted himself, his family and his extended family and migrated to Canada, looking for greener pastures.
- Alas, he found that Canada was not the land of milk and honey that he thought it was. Life was tough there. Not long afterwards, Tommy Thomas packed his suitcase again, and returned to Malaysia where he resumed his legal practice.
- So, Malaysia was good for him before he left for Canada and Malaysia was still good for him and that’s why he returned.
- But now he wants to change what was good, for what is at best, uncertain. And, if things go wrong, he may run to Canada again. After all he did it once. He can do it again.
Well Tommy Thomas set up his own legal firm only in the year 2000, although he was admitted to the Bar in the 1970s. It took him sometime to get organised.
I also disagree with Stop The Lies here about why Tommy Thomas packed his bags from Canada and ran back to Malaysia. Canada is a very very cold country. I think some white guys in Canada must have also called him a brownie, nigger, sammi (sami) or something derogatory like that. Tommy may also have found out that the white folks dont always want to shake his brown hands, even in church. Things like this may have caused Tommy to change his mind about Canada.
Or Tommy may have found out that his lawyering skills are not that great in Canada, where even the high school educated postman may speak better English.
I have a question to ask - why didnt Tommy Thomas migrate back to Mother India? I mean you had already left Malaysia as a land that was oppressive and does not provide you opportunity. You ran away to Canada. You then found out that squeaky clean, non-corrupt, freedom of speech, freedom of everything Canada is also not your land of opportunity.
Why didnt you go back to Mother India? You know - that great waste land from which our grandparents made their great escape. They escaped from India and came to this blessed land called Malaysia - which remains blessed until this day.
Canada, India, Malaysia all have the same soil, they also grow plants on their soil like we do, they also have their rivers, hills and mountains (higher, taller and larger than ours). The only difference between Canada, India and Malaysia are the people that populate the land.
Malaysia has obviously offered more opportunity for Tommy Thomas and everyone of us because of the people that run the place here. The people that run the place here are the Malays. (After 1957 the Chinese and the Indians also contributed as well through the Barisan Nasional coalition Government). These are the people who give you the real opportunities Tommy. And we will see Tommy's opportunities very shortly.
(Err.. I am also referring to our 15th century ancestors who became Chittys in Malacca and Mamaks in Kedah during the time of the Malay Sultans - long before your white uncles Stamford Raffles or Francis Light were carried ashore by coolies from Mother India too).
This country has been providing hospitality for refugees and escapees for quite a while. Do you think the natives will wake up one fine day and ask for a Royal Commission of Inquiry?
Yes Canada maybe squeaky clean and good - but mostly for the white folks ya. Brownies may not have it as good. Even the 'First Nation' people (native "Red Indians") in Canada have tons of complaints. And India is still a great wasteland (do read on) which did not even cross Tommy's mind as a destination.
Whatever his reasons, obviously Tommy Thomas felt that there were better opportunities waiting for him in what he would term "less than squeaky clean Malaysia". If squeaky clean Canada was too cold for Tommy, not so squeaky clean Malaysia has proven to be more suited for Tommy Thomas. Maybe this provides a reflection into Tommy Thomas true character as well. Stop The Lies has more here:
- Tommy Thomas had once migrated to Canada. But then he came back. Did he come back to an oppressive Malaysia?
- When his father completed his Government service as a technical assistant, he retired as a wealthy person, thanks to his astute financial skills. Would he have managed to do so if Malaysia had an oppressive government?
- Tommy Thomas owns two Porsches. Malaysia was indeed good for him.
- All three of Tommy Thomas’s children study overseas. He must have a reasonably good income to be able to afford to do so. Malaysia can’t be all bad.
- Tommy Thomas’s mother was an assistant professor in University Malaya. Her skills were given due recognition.
- Tommy Thomas owns two thoroughbred horses. That’s like being in the elitist league.
- Tommy Thomas was convicted on a contempt of court charge in 2001, but his six-month jail term was reduced to a fine. The judiciary has been kind to him.
- With all of theses strikes, Tommy Thomas does not look like a man who has been deprived of much in Malaysia, if at all.
- All this happened during the regime of the present government which he calls corrupt.
Two Porshces? Wow - satu tak cukup kah? I just checked with another lawyer friend who says that Tommy Thomas indeed owns at least one Porsche Panamera. Two racehorses? I could not verify this myself - my bookie is out of town lah. But I wont be surprised.
And folks, from Tommy Thomas' own website, here is a list of some of his clients :
Affin Bank Berhad, Ahmad Zaki Resources Berhad, Ahmad Zaki Sdn Bhd, Bank Islam Malaysia Berhad, Bursa Malaysia Berhad, CIMB Bank Berhad, CIMB Investment Bank Berhad, Companies Commission of Malaysia, Felcra Berhad, Malayan Banking Berhad, Malaysia Deposit Insurance Corporation, Malaysian Building Society Berhad, Pengurusan Danaharta Nasional Berhad, Prokhas Berhad, RHB Bank Berhad, Securities Commission, Sime Darby Group
I say Tommy, CIMB Bank? Isnt that the bank that is run by the No. 1 Oppressor's own little brother? The Securities Commission? Isnt that where that lady used to do that thing? She was in the Blogs for the wrong reasons.
Folks, this is the type of client list where Tommy Thomas suffered so much oppression in Malaysia which enabled him to buy his Porsches and racehorses.
Tommy, not only are you hunting with your imaginary hounds and running with the imaginary hares, but more importantly, you have certainly established your credentials as a lawyer who can speak out of his orifice - beyond any shadow of doubt.
Here is more hunting with the hounds by Tommy Thomas. He was also "Director of the Malaysian Institute of Corporate Governance from 1995 to 2001". If any of you minority shareholders were victims of any corporate oppression during that period of time, do take it up with Tommy Thomas. He may not be able to not help you. (Thats a double negative - which makes it a zinger.)
We will talk about India a bit more after this. So Tommy who do you want to vote for? Who is your alternative? The Three Stooges? Are you insane? You are? Ok lets look at Larry, Harry and Mo of the Three Stooges.
i. First : Larry represents one set of racist bastards who lie through their teeth that they are multi racial. Yet they cannot even elect one Malay (the majority race) into their councils. Then to pull the wool over everyones' eyes they cheated and rigged their party votes to enable one of their own race (who is masquerading as a Malay) into their inner circle. This is worse than the cheapest plot in the most third rate Malayalam or Tamil movie. By the way Tommy, there are no Malayalees in their high councils either. You can tell that to KJ John as well.
ii. Second : Harry is that @$$ whacker and adult movie actor who has denied his philandering hypocrisy under the excuse that he does not have a tummy. Again even the worst, third rate Malayalam or Tamil movie has better script than that. And when he was closer to the treasure chest, this @$$ whacker stole billions from the till (when his finger was not stuck up your @$$). He wins the Nobel Prize for corruption. And that is not all. Even your "corrupt, useless and evil UMNO" could not stand this @$$ whacker. They threw him out. Ayoyo Jesus Christ - the bugger is a bloody UMNO reject. And he is still desperately trying to get back into UMNO.
Can you imagine that - the homosexual, adulterous and corrupt trash that has been ejected even by your "oppressive and corrupt UMNO" is now being sucked up deliciously by you and your cohort. You have hoisted rejected trash upon your shoulders. This is only possible if under your skin you are still inheritors of that unmentionable Tamil word associated with the untouchables in the Mother India from which your parents escaped.
Finally we come to Mo, the turd among the Three Stooges. Here is something which has been written about Tommy Thomas and his crusades :
"The veteran lawyer, who had studied the subject .. presented an essay debunking Malaysia as an Islamic state at the Malaysian Law Conference .."
So Tommy, you oppose the idea that Malaysia should become a theocratic state. You are afraid that the whackos and psychos will turn this beautiful country into a Taliban mental asylum, that they will whip you in public for consuming your favorite single malt or even cut off the legs of your two thoroughbred race horses?
You are exactly on the ball here Tommy. I am with you on this one. Indeed the turds have stated publicly and repeatedly that if they come to power, the first thing they will do is shut down the Genting Highlands. They have sworn to do this Tommy.
Lim Goh Tong did not have to migrate to Canada to get his opportunities. Just like you, he got his opportunities here. He made his billions on that mountain just 45 minutes from Kuala Lumpur. Now you want to vote for the turds who say they will shut the place down in a jiffy, possibly exhume Lim Goh Tong's massive mausoleum and ship it back to China or something. (Watch out - they may just do it. The Taliban blew up those statues remember.) And these are the turds that you will vote for? You think they will give you 10,000 acres of land as well?
So think Tommy. By all logic, shouldn't you be locked up in the mental asylum along with the racist Larry, the @$$ whacking corrupt Harry and the stark raving insane Mo? This is your alternative?
Now here is some news from India. This news is about the Hindu RSS fanatics (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) who are burning churches and killing christians in India. The attacks are increasing.
- "In 2012, 135 attacks against Christians were registered
- New Delhi (Agenzia Fides) - In 2012, 135 attacks on Christians in India were officially counted, according to "Global Council of Indian Christians"
- "Day of Martyrs" - anniversary of massacre of Pastor Graham Staines burnt alive by Hindu extremists, with his two sons in 1999.
- persecution most heated in Karnataka 41 attacks. Orissa 16, Tamil Nadu 15 cases, Madhya Pradesh 14, Chhattisgarh 7 attacks, Kerala 5 attacks
135 attacks against christians in India in 2012 !!
It looks like we can understand why Tommy Thomas may not have wanted to migrate back to India. The Hindus there are wide awake now about what the Christians are doing in India. You try to convert Hindus into christianity, they burn your churches and your pastors. Five cases in Kerala in 2012? That is the tanah asal of Tommy Thomas and KJ John's ancestors. Did the Syriac Church suffer any attacks?
Imagine this Tommy and KJ John - its Sunday, you put on your best mangosteen outfit (white on the inside, black on the outside) and jauntily walk to church like the wolf in Little Red Riding Hood - casting your eyes down on the poor Hindus who still have not reduced their polytheism from many gods to just three. Then out comes swamiji swinging his trinity (trident) and burns down your church.
Dont worry. Such things are daily occurrences in India only - that great wasteland, where so much life, opportunity and happiness simply goes to waste. But dont be too sure about Malaysia ok. The RSS have their cousins in Malaysia as well.
So then you come to this peaceful land of milk and honey. And what do you do? You call the Malays oppressors and you want to convert them to christianity as well. Haiyya. Talk about killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.
But there is also a funny side to things. Many of you fail (actually fall) drastically along the way. Many of you end up marrying the Malay girls. What a joke. The Telegus, Ceylon Tamils, Malayalis, Goanese, Tamils and my own Mamaks never cease to marry the Malay girls.
It is not just that many of the Malay lasses are more pleasing. There is more to it. Firstly to hear some one call you abang is perhaps a soothing balm to cover up your own inability to speak the language of the people who have been so hospitable to you in this land.
Secondly, you cannot marry each other. A Malayali marrying a Tamil? You would rather marry a goat no? What about a Punjabi marrying a Telegu? You would rather marry a cow no?
OK forget about marriage. Do you get invited to each others houses here in Malaysia? In India it is definitely no. Will you serve each other food? An Uttar Pradeshi hindu vegetarian inviting a Tamil hindu for lunch at his home? A frog will grow wings and fly in the sky first before that happens.
But the natives give you Datoships. They even make you Tan Sris. For example you can become Tan Sri Das. If they dropped the 'Sri' it will be Tan-Das. So out of respect they kept it at Tan Sri (this is a joke told me by a very gregarious Ceylon Tamil ex-communicated (murtad) church pastor who lives in Klang. He is now a merry atheist and causes major headaches for the church).
If you dont like the inefficiency do speak out loudly. If you dont like the lethargy do speak out loudly. Speak out. This is a free country. Speak out against gag orders too. But dont burn the house down by voting for Abaddon, Beelzebub, Belial and Mammon.
I would rather vote for the Porsches, the Panameras and the thoroughbreds. Anytime.
Lastly congratulations Tommy on the Porsches and the thoroughbreds. You have done good. there. Thats what life is all about too. Buy a couple more.
