Who Are The Real Nazis?

Umno vice-president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi today drew parallels between the opposition’s propaganda efforts with the leaders of Nazi Germany.

In his officiating speech for Umno’s youth, women’s and puteri wings annual assembly today, Zahid recounted how the Adolf Hitler and his propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels had a grip on German citizens through carefully crafted propaganda strategies.

“It was based on lies… Hitler once wrote: ‘If you are going to tell a lie, tell a big one and if you tell it often enough, people will begin to believe it’….

“The opposition’s plot in this country is almost the same,” said Zahid.

He said the opposition had been claiming that the country would go bankrupt under the current administration, among other fallacies.

This, said Zahid, was a worrying trend as it has resulted in polarisation of thought and led to the rise of politics of hate.

As for Umno’s own communication efforts, Zahid told his audience that 87 percent of information was now being sourced through the new media…

“The opposition’s plot in this country is almost the same,” said Zahid.

He said the opposition had been claiming that the country would go bankrupt under the current administration, among other fallacies.

In view of this, he said members of all three Umno wings must use cyberspace wisely in order to address slander and attacks by the party’s enemies….

He said Umno’s cybertroopers must be united and form a proper strategy to combat the enemy, rather than fight among themselves.

Our comment

Zahid Hamidi would do better to steer away from raising comparisons to the Nazis, given that the world can see who is using the Gestapo tactics in Malaysia.

It is not the opposition who are knocking on doors at all hours and arresting people on false charges. And it is not the opposition who talk up racial and ideological issues.

Nor is it the opposition who talk of “the enemy” with respect to other citizens in their own country with whom they happen to disagree.

Neither is it the opposition who have grasped total control of a massive state media including print and radio broadcasts. That is what UMNO have done, abusing all the powers and wealth of the state to do so.

Rather, the opposition are the equivalent of the plucky pamphleteers of the Resistance, who have the advantage of the truth to catch people’s minds through the poor man’s medium of the internet.

It is the opposition who are calling for freedom, equality, progress and reform, whilst it is UMNO who are calling for the ‘supremacy of the master race’.

One could continue with many more accurate parallels and every one confirms how conspicuously it is UMNO who resemble the Nazi party from Germany, who don’t even make any pretences about their Cyber Storm Troopers (with RPK as their Lord Haw Haw, squawking from the safety of abroad).

They believe they can swamp those who rely on truth and fact.¬†However, they will never out-argue them…. unless Zahid Hamidi can produce that Saudi Royal he says he met who ‘donated’ Najib that billion dollars, of course!
