Forgive my words, but I must say this; I think Mr. Tajuddin Abdul Rahman, the UMNO MP from Pasir Salak, is a bona fide b*st*rd.

He is the epitome of what is wrong with UMNO and Barisan Nasional. For every good BN MP out there (not many, but there are some), there are stinkers like Mr. Tajuddin.

A few months ago, he did an ‘Ahmad Ismail’ by saying that non-Malays are descendent from immigrants. However, his remarks did not get much publicity.

Earlier in the month, he called Ipoh Barat MP Mr. Kulasegaran a ‘bloody bastard’, when the DAP man claimed that Indians in Pasir Salak hate him. After some recent comments of his, I’m starting to believe Mr. Kulasegaran.

This week, he called Gombak MP Mr. Azmin Ali ‘biol‘ (idiot) and made sexual innuendos when PAS MP Mr. Mujahid Yusof Rawa was debating Serdang MP Ms. Teo Nie Ching’s motion.

But the worse of his actions are when he uttered racially offensive remarks on Mr. Kulasegaran.

The above transcript was taken from here.You can read a commentary on Mr. Tajuddin’s antics here and here.

What’s even more frustrating is that Mr. Tajuddin is getting away with his actions, without nary a slap on the wrist. Yes, the Parliamentary speakers are from the ruling coalition and it is understandable if they are not able to be fully independent, but their refusal to punish Mr. Tajuddin is a blatant example of double-standards.

How long can we tolerate people like Mr. Tajuddin? How long can Malaysians ‘turn a blind eye’ to blatantly racist people like him?

Sometimes, I grow tired of condemning such actions. I sometimes think that these people are too arrogant to realize, regardless of the public backlash they might face. I wonder, are they merely trying to win some points with their supporters or are Malaysians so culturally insensitive that we cannot realize when we have stepped over the boundaries.

Last time it was the Perak assemblywoman. Then it was Mr. Ahmad Ismail. Now it’s Mr. Tajuddin.

When will it end?
