The Ugly Malaysian

No, not the man in the white shirt, but the baying hordes surrounding him.

This video shows the cruel harassment of a Malaysian citizen whose only “crime” was to exercise his right to vote.

Accused of being a phantom voter, he persevered and was eventually able to cast his ballot despite the intimidation. Take a bow, Mr. Rameish Raman. You have my respect.

Edit 2.30pm, May 7th:

It seems there are some still questioning whether Mr Rameish is indeed Malaysian even after clarification from JPN that he was. After all, JPN, being a part of Government, is not to be trusted.

By all accounts, this incident occurred at the Taman Segar polling centre under the P.123 Cheras constituency. This is a formidable DAP fortress with the Chinese making up 84% of voters. In 2008, the incumbent Tan Kok Wai won this seat by a whopping 28,300 majority. So, it begs the question: If he were indeed a phantom voter, why would BN send him to a place like this? What could it possibly hope to achieve?

      No one deserves to be treated like this. I’m trying hard not to turn this into a race thing, but imagine the outrage if it were Malays that had done this.

    No one. No one…not even if he was a foreigner. I am so sorry to say and if I sound racist, so be it because when Malay-looking thugs people claimed were Umno machais harassing crowd in some public events in the past, I said the same thing about them “samseng” . These people were definitely DAP machais and they did what they did as though they were the law — and through May 5, we get substantiated reports that these guys were harassing people. Calling “Bangla Bangla bangla” at Malaysians who don’t have yellow skin,.

    Samseng. Samseng samseng..

      Good for you. It’s not often these day that I find people who would condemn wrongdoings regardless of who commits them. I’m pretty sure I haven’t heard a word from the likes of Ambiga about these disgraceful events. Wasn’t she the one who was making a big hooha about election violence before?

      Anyway, I don’t know if there was a concerted effort to scare people away from voting. I would rather think not. However, what I see in this video to me definitely qualifies as criminal intimidation. Hopefully the authorities will take the appropriate action against all involved.

      And I can think of a few juicier words than Samseng to call these people 🙂

    I am surprised the police has been so patient and did not take further action against the hooliganist behavior of these people.

    Reblogged this on syafiqmanaf and commented:
    What make them feel so superior to question another people right? must have exactly same skin-color? even their ‘Bahasa’ are not fluent for Malaysian requirement. when a race feel so empower over other, that will come with racism attitude. Feel so disappointed with this a few people attitude, extinction are upon these racialist that live and roam freely in Malaysia. I hope. Finger-Cross
