Lulu accused of having a backward thinking and understanding of the Malay Culture

This year, instead of waving the keris around, he decided to display the keris on the podium.
Kononnya, it was not intended to send any sinister message to Malaysians of other races.

Then he goes on to accuse those who felt anxiety over the keris waving last year of having a backward thinking and understanding of their culture.

Tuan Hisham,
let Lulu take you back to another time and same space. Maybe you were too young to remember. Or too busy Skrine&Co-ing.

Well, your cousin not just waved a keris, he was talking about soaking it with Chinese blood.

One oft-cited instance of this is a rally held by UMNO Youth shortly before Ops Lallang in 1987, where future Deputy Prime Minister and then UMNO Youth Chief Najib Razak threatened to bathe a keris (dagger) with Chinese blood. [52]
At the same rally, banners were hoisted carrying phrases such as "revoke the citizenship of those who opposed the Malay rulers", "May 13 has begun" (referring to the
May 13 racial riots in 1969), and "soak it (the keris) with Chinese blood". [53]

Lulu give you another example
On Feb 4, 2001, the Malay Action Front (MAF) organised the "Takkan Melayu Hilang Di Dunia" rally at the UMNO-owned Putra World Trade Centre. There were blood-curdling posters and banners with the Malay keris in a sea of blood. Yup, the logo of the gathering was an outstretched hand holding a "kris" (the traditional Malay dagger) set against a red backdrop with the words Melayu Bersatu (Malays Unite)

Yesterday, at the Umno Youth Assembly, you said
“The keris is not a symbol of colonisation, oppression or exploitation of
non-Malays,” he claimed, saying that it only embodies the hopes and aspirations
of Malays to be attained through the struggles of the party.

Looking at the history of the keris this past 10 years, it's telling me different.

well Lulu...it is crystal clear how malays or your so called bumi’s try their racial dominance in Malaysia.

Am not a Malaysian but have been here in your country for a few years now, doing consultancy for a local company. If I could only scream my lungs out here on your blogg but that would be and act of inciting to racial or ethnic discrimination. Well I’d rather not be specific on how I racially feel about them being not a Malaysian or malay, it might just get me into trouble with your dreaded ISA.

The irony is they are so scared of the Chinese because they run 85% of the Malaysian economy, that’s the main reason why they insight into being racist. Reality is on 25% are racist, and this are the ones you see who are having their convention now, the rest they don’t give a f**k for as long as they have their salary “GAJI” to buy all the fake LUIS VUITTON, LEVIS etc. products at Petaling Street…and as long you don’t take away the staple Belacan from their diet. Take all these away they might just go amuck from being a rude brainless bunch of penguins “specially the women” (they got a resemblance of FAT FAT emperor penguins in their TUDONG) they cant even carry their own ass, a apart of being bloody lazy………!#)()$#&#)&)*&)#*&!)@@@

The great "warrior spirit" includes the parasitic cling-on expectation as well?

In old feudal Japan, e.g., the Samurai were not really parasites ; more so the Shoguns were. The former had to be fearless mercenaries. Watta badly imitated code that becomes one actually of Bull-shit-do!

Why is it that everytime the Bolehland approved persona attempts to claim an analogy to greatness, it falls on its face? Isn't that related also to hubris ala Araby?

Excerpt:

"In modern day Malaysia, the kris is used as a symbol of ketuhanan Melayu, or Malay supremacy. In 2005, UMNO Youth Chief Hishamuddin Hussein brandished a kris at the UMNO general assembly in response to Opposition questioning of the Malaysian social contract, which was received enthusiastically by the Malay delegates, but scoffed at or criticised heavily by the intelligentsia of the nation. Prior to this, politicians have threatened that "kerises shall be stained with Chinese blood" if the Chinese minority questioned Malay special rights. "

M'sia with its Umnoputras sure have made a big name in the World! As Asian neo Nazis, i.e.

Was any Katana or Wakizashi, e.g., lately and similarly ever made similarly infamous symbolically by assocation though they were truly lethal weapon of war and enabled their warlords in their time?
