12/11: Who is the real Beruk now?
This is in reference to Khairy Jamaluddin's recent insulting remark associating a large swathe of Malaysians participating in the Bersih campaign as "beruk-beruk jalanraya".
Well, the Bersih March is now history and has been widely documented by both national and international media as a successful campaign of peaceful citizens gathering in an orderly manner.
The only primate behaviors observed on this day were from the police force, who randomly attacked innocent bystanders with tear gas and acid-laced water. In fact, the police force descended to such primate-like knee-jerk reaction that they were reportedly reacting in a rather paranoid fashion at anything or anyone donned in the color yellow, even if it was a wristband; much like wild monkeys going ape over a bunch of ripe yellow bananas. And in the fashion of wild gorillas trying to exert dominance over their territory, the police force was also reported to have acted violently by clobbering several foreign journalists covering the event.
But we can't entirely blame the police force, can we? After all, they are obliged to take orders from the head of the Home Ministry, currently under the purview of Chimp-in-Chief Bodohwi.
Despite the recent dire warnings from the Chimp-in-Chief and the family pet kera, the fact that the event was successful only indicates that this family-run circus act of chimps-on-unicycles is running out of political capital and clout. Not to mention that their unsuccessful attempt at crushing the event has bordered on the treasonous, especially when the Agung had given his consent to receiving the Bersih memorandum from the people.
In sum, the people have spoken. And Bodohwi and his pet kera have demonstrated themselves to be on the wrong side of history. It is best if both of them pack up their bags and go join their simian cousin in the treetops of Kebinatangan, and leave the running of the country to fully evolved Homo Sapiens who don't sleep on the job.
And in case Khairy is still confused about what constitutes beruk-ish behavior, he should either look in the mirror or view the above picture.
