Does Umno represent all Malays? Is the Umno viewpoint synonymous with the Malay world view?
Datuk Hishammuddin Hussein and Datuk Reezal Marican of Umno Youth would like Malaysians to believe so. They want Malaysians to equate an insult against Umno Youth as an insult against all Malaysians.
But the answer to both questions is a resounding NO.
The umbilical cord between the ruling party and the community it was set up to serve has long been severed. It is difficult to pinpoint when the break happened.Yes, all of them would like Malaysians to believe that when they speak, they speak on behalf of the Malays. They don’t. The numbers do not support this claim. They are politicians auditioning for next month's elections. link
