Giving New Meaning to Reverse Takeover

Posted by M ws On Monday, August 8, 2011 6 comments
In mid-November last year, Pauline Hanson, the Australian politician noted for her anti-immigration outbursts, has said she is abandoning plans to move to Britain because “it’s overrun with immigrants and refugees.” She went on to say that France is becoming filled with Muslims and that the French and English are losing their way of life because they’re controlled by foreigners. That scenario could well happen in our own backyard at the rate things are going.

Today, Pakatan Rakyat (PR) lawmakers demanded an emergency sitting of Parliament over claims that 1,600 foreigners had been given citizenship and voting rights, claiming that if left unchecked it would erode Malaysia’s constitutional monarchy.

PAS vice-president Datuk Mahfuz Omar rationalized that the permanent residents who were being given “express” citizenship and voting rights “would not appreciate our royalty as we do.” And why?

RPK's latest post Upsetting the Ecological Balance gives the answer: 

But the new (post-Merdeka) immigrants into Malaysia do not face death in their country. They do not owe Malaysia their lives. They are merely ‘economic refugees’. It’s all about money. Their loyalty is to money, not to Malaysia.

Those are the types of people we are giving ‘instant citizenship’ to. And in time we shall realise the folly of this immigration policy.

They have no memories of the British Colonial era. They have no memories of the Japanese occupation. They have no memories of Merdeka. They have no memories of the Emergency. They have no memories of the creation of Malaysia. They have no memories of the Konfrontasi with Indonesia. They have no memories of May 13. They have no memories of anything at all that Malaysians hold dear. They are here only for the money.

So where do these people’s loyalty lie? Certainly not where our loyalties lie because they do not share our culture and value system. They are only loyal to the Ringgit and as long as the Ringgit is there they will become ‘true Malaysians’. However, once the Ringgit is no longer there, they would not care two hoots about Malaysia.

What Malaysia could have on its hands is a time-bomb ticking its way to a socio-economic disaster. The prevailing situation is somewhat like a Reverse Takeover whereby you acquire something and then what has been acquired ends up owning you instead!! In short, the hunter has now become the HUNTED!!!

Note also, in the corporate world, a 30% stake in a public enterprise is as good as a controlling stake. So beware. If you think you will limit this exercise to only 30%, it may end up with you losing control.

According to The Malaysian Insider, PR had also claimed that 1,108 permanent residents in the Klang Valley were given the status of full citizens on August 2 alone, and ridiculed the notion that over 1,000 identity cards were issued within a day.

Most alarmingly, PAS vice-president Salahuddin Ayub also showed documents claiming that between 1.06pm and 2.30pm on August 2, three voters had their status changed from permanent residents to citizens “in the blink of an eye.” The Kubang Kerian MP said that the information was downloaded from the NRD website itself and we have a total of 1,597 cases across the country. These are official statistics. What about the dark figure then? (The dark figure represents the discrepancy between actual statistics and those that are not reported.)

Personally, many perceive this is the tip of the iceberg. In my post on Immigrants and Emigrants - Facts and Figures, I wrote:

Strangely, this site shows that the population trend in Malaysia in on an increasing trend and is slightly over 27 million in 2008.

Compare this chart with the tables in the earlier links. Judge for yourself. I am sure the statistics are available but how come the net migration rate is unavailable? How come the population pattern is on the increase in the light of the statistics for birth rate, death rate and the absence of net migration rate for the country?

Just who are leaving and WHO ARE COMING IN???? Can someone kindly explain the demographic pattern??

Clearly, the Pakatan lawmakers and RPK are on the right track in highlighting this impending doomsday scenario awaiting Malaysians. We can talk till the cows come home about 1Malaysia and unity/harmony and all that jazz but if the gene pool of the population is in imbalance, what will happen? Obviously, they will not be loyal citizens.

There is a high probability that Durkheim's anomie will occur here. Anomie is a term meaning "personal feeling of a lack of social norms; normlessness". It describes the breakdown of social norms and values arising from a mismatch between personal or group standards and wider social standards, or from the lack of a social ethic, which produces moral deregulation and an absence of legitimate aspirations.

When immigrants outnumber the original host population, social cohesiveness might be at stake. The social system may then decay into a state of anomie. By then, common values and common meanings are no longer understood or accepted, and new values and meanings have not developed.

For Malaysia to develop, we need citizens with a sense of belonging.  Why are we chasing our own bona fide CITIZENS  (whom some have called pendatang or prostitutes) and letting the first world countries welcome them to contribute to their economies while we place the welcome mat for third world brawn to come in? Worse still, we have those who call themselves citizens who call the authorities to strip some noble citizens of their citizenship! They are well fed and fat!

With absolutely no sense of belonging (normlessness/alienated state), would such citizens care what happens to Malaysia? Their hearts are still with their homeland! Mercenary in nature, they would only care for money. After all, that was why they came in the first place.

The lack of unity will tear the nation apart. If after over half a century of independence, and we still have diatribes almost daily, how can we expect foreign migrants to come in and gel with the population? The nons generally stay away and have been working hard for a future, for a government that does not take care of them. Even so, unity is lacking. What more with migrants?

Take a look at what happened in London recently. Note that the riots happened in the poor section of London where many migrants live.

While we may laugh at Pauline Hanson's statement, the horrible truth is the UK of today in that respect, could be Malaysia in the future!!!

The difference is - Malaysia will get that way faster because some people are thinking of meeting their own objectives and have no qualms about making the rest of us suffer. Furthermore, Malaysia, with its 28 million population compared to UK's 72 million will undergo a faster speed in 'dilution'.

Multi-cultures can be a good thing for our country if they accept our cultures and our way of life. But look at history and how immigrants thrive in their own culture bubbles! How many are willing to assimilate? What they do is to duplicate a neighbourhood of their own ethnic group in their host country and make little effort to assimilate with the host country. Worse still, they leech onto public goods such as hospitals and schools which are PAID FOR BY TAXPAYERS!!!

Some immigrants may respect our culture but how many would? What respect would they have for a country whose leaders sold out its own citizens and brought them in just so they could get the numbers needed for their purposes?

To exacerbate the situation is the fact that they are not even accepting smart or educated foreigners who will benefit the country in any way.  To top it all, they are bringing in migrants who have no basic education and are surely liabilities to the country socially, economically and even in terms of health issues.

It seems that some do not wish to rest until they witness the eventual destruction of this land we love!!! How can any sane human sell out their motherland just so they can claim to have the mandate to rule? Isn't this daylight robbery in the highest degree? What an outrage!

They have certainly given new meaning to Reverse Takeover not just to their own peril but to the eventual destruction of all that our forefathers fought for! This reverse takeover will impact and hurt them more than the nons because the pie will get smaller! Now they are the fed and the fat!!! But with this development, they will have to share the pie with them!!!  And what do we have left for the rest of us???

People, you know what to do at the next GE! VOTE WISELY!

    dianna Beautifully written with logic, pathos and verve.

    Election and registration reforms must take place before the next general elections otherwise the results will be held in contempt by the losing side since there will be complete mistrust in not only the EC but also the NRD which documents citizenship.

    If the present federal government doesn't initiate the reforms or institute multi-partisan oversight on the entire supply chain leading right up to vote counting and results declaration, then it means it intends to cheat.

    Then we will be adding our illustrious national name to the list of the world's illegally elected democracies. Society will be split. Tensions will rise. Rebellion may ensue. Investments will come to a standstill.

    Little Corgi Overheard in a Kopitiam somewhere in KL between Mighty Joe (an American) and Ahmad who is with some local friends...

    Ahmad: Hi some of my Malaysian friends. Hey boys, introduce yourselves.

    M2: Hi Joe! My name is Budi Bambang. I'm from Indonesia. This is my wife Suharto Widuri. I came here to look for a job 3 months ago, and now...Presto! We're now Malaysians! We have a stall in the Pudu wet market.
    M3: Hi Mighty Joe: I'm Aabid and I'm formerly from Saudi. Last week, Ahmad asked me if I wanted to be a Malaysian. He said it is easy, so I thought to myself, "Why not". So, I've a blue IC. I operate a retail outlet in Sungei Wang. Come by for some really good Shisha. I've some beautiful Hookah too you know. I've been here since February this year and business is good. Say, Mighty Joe, your name sounds familiar. Are you a movie star?
    MJ: Movie star? Nah...But you're right, I share my name with one really huge monkey. But he's a good monkey.
    M4: Hi Joe! My name is Wong Ah Pek. I'm not a Malaysian but I've lived here for 40 years now.
    M5: Hi Joe! I'm Gurusamy. My friends call me Sammy. I'm like Ah Pek. Born here since 1965 but still red IC. What to do...(sigh)
    MJ: Whoa!! Can I be a Malaysian too? I'm very handsome you know...
    Ahmad: Do you know what BN means? If you know what it means and you like what it means, then maybe, just maybe, I can talk to my friends in the government...

    Salam Mesra...

    Chester Khuan If Najib announces election date before the electoral role is sufficiently clean-up, can we protest ala Bersih 3.0? These newly minted Malaysians are they holding dual citizenship? If their loyalty is money and their own country they may not be willing to give up their citizenship in their fatherland yet they now holds Malaysian citizenship.

    joshua wong Dear MWS,

    This is a really serious issue that truly deserve the emergency Parliament sitting. But sadly we all know what will be the outcome.

    The scenario is indeed frightening. Besides the situation you mentioned (ie.brains replaced with brawn, dilution of our common value and perhaps even culture and way of life, leeching of social goods meant for and paid by us), there are other issues.

    There are the health issues of the immigrants. Are they 'clean'? Do they carry any diseases? We know that they had gone through health checks but we also have good reason to doubt if those 'checks' are properly carried out.

    Then, there is the issue of crime. As RPK has pointed out so succinctly these immigrants (or migrants) came here solely for money. What if (and it's a big "waht if") they can't find any work or no one hires them after their work is done? What then? Will they not resort to crime as a last resort? Will we have to suffer the consequence of rising crime caused by immigrants in addition to our own?

    i'd read a column about the riots in London. A resident, who had spoken to some of the rioters (looters), in an interview by the BBC said, "The only excuse they gave for their behaviour was that they had no money today." Yes, it is all about money. Plain and simple.

    The world economy is in dire straits now. We do not need another problem to add to those our powers that be already can't hope to cope with.
