Your Entertainment: Back to 1960’s
Malaysia-Land of Beauty and Harmony but Destroyed By Corruption and Inept Najib’s UMNO Governance
Dr. Dave Brubeck@ The George Washington University–Simply The Best
Dr. Kamsiah who is now in Sarawak on a volunteer mission and Din Merican in Phnom Penh bring back memories of the music of the Golden Sixties. It was a period when we Malaysians were living harmoniously with one and another, despite the Cold War which was raging in Southeast Asia. That changed when some politicians in our country decided that it was time to play politics with race; and that culminated in the May 13, 1969 riots.
Today, we seem to have forgotten that tragic episode. Our besieged Prime Minister is allowing Malay extremists in UMNO, and mullahs and bigots to play with race and religion, leaving us in a state of tension. We hope he knows what he is doing by engaging in this politics of divide and rule. We should show him and UMNO that we are not going to be drawn into his game and destroy our country.
Let us take good care of our Malaysia. Enjoy the weekend with the music of the Sixties. Let us do the peppermint twist under the Blue Moon . –Dr Kamsiah and Din Merican
