Himpunan rakyat bersatu atau himpunan maruah Melayu?  – Zasyaf Ishak
Published: 2 September 2015 3:36 PM

Di ruang maya ini, sudah banyak analisa dilakukan terhadap himpunan Bersih 4.0 yang baru lalu. Macam-macam ulasan. Analisa yang dirasakan paling afdal dan kononnya sahih, adalah ia sudah menjadi rali kaum Cina untuk menidakkan pentadbiran kerajaan (Melayu).

Pada pandangan mata kasar, analisa itu mungkin benar. Tetapi masih lagi tidak mampu meletakkan angka/peratusan sebenar penglibatan orang Melayu.

Apakah komposisi Melayu hanya setakat 20%, 25% atau berapa? Jika itu peratusannya, nyata perhimpunan Bersih tidak mencapai takat pencapaian ekonomi Bumiputera pun – iaitu 30%.

Apakah petanda ini bagus kepada politik Cina? Atau ini petanda kembalinya Melayu bersolidariti dengan kerajaan yang lalai dan tidak kompeten?

Mengapa Melayu tak turun?

Apakah dengan angka kurang 20% itu, maka kerajaan bolehlah menggembar-gemburkan berita jadian yang sokongan 80 % Melayu sudah solid dan utuh bersama kerajaan sedia ada.

Jika berlaku pilihan raya, daripada 10 orang Melayu, hanya 2 yang tidak menyokong, sementara 8 lagi akan memberikan taat setia kepada kerajaan?

Melayu tidak turun itu tidak boleh disabitkan yang mereka menyokong kerajaan. Ada Melayu yang takat menyampahnya sudah ke tahap tidak boleh melihat muka.

Malah jika ada iklan dahi berkerut selepas sembang kosong dengan rakan-rakan, 'Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!' itu pun sudah mendatangkan mual yang tidak keruan.

Melayu pun tahu rasa benci. Melayu pun bosan dan kecewa dengan fiil pemerintah yang bermuka toya. Melayu pun sakit hati dengan budaya berbelanja boros, sedang rakyat masih bertatih mengurus ekonomi rumah tangga.

Melayu tidak turun, tidak bermaksud kerana Melayu sudah reda dan menganggap kepimpinan palsu, lemah, “membangsatkan” lagi toya, sebagai ujian Allah SWT.

Firman Allah SWT di dalam surah al Ankabut, ayat 2 yang bermaksud:

"Patutkah manusia menyangka mereka akan dibiarkan dengan hanya berkata, 'Kami beriman', sedang mereka tidak diuji dengan (sesuatu cubaan)?"

Apakah ini ujian Allah kepada bangsa Melayu dan umat Islam. Setelah 58 tahun merdeka, nah, 6 tahun ini dapatlah kalian kepimpinan yang longgar iman dan cemerkap pengurusan. Mungkin juga!

Jadi, tak perlulah agaknya bangga diri dengan mengatakan Melayu masih bersamamu sedangkan hakikatnya tidak begitu.

Himpunan maruah Melayu?

Maka itu, timbullah idea yang umat Melayu mesti mengembalikan maruahnya yang tercalar kerana Cina sudah membuktikan mereka bisa berteriak di jalanan. Himpunan kuning mesti dilawan. Mahu dilawan dengan apa?

Pantas, kita kaitkan sahaja ini sebagai himpunan menjaga maruah yang kononnya tercalar.

Sahabat Melayuku,

Sebenarnya maruahmu sudah lama tercalar. Calar dan robek, kerana jiwa perjuanganmu sudah diisi dengan tebal poket dan ketoyaanmu menerima kepimpinan yang lemah dan tidak kompeten.

Kita yang merelakan “maruah” kita tercalar apabila kita beria-ia mengangkat kepimpinan yang merintih dermawan Arab untuk memenangi pilihan raya.

Kita yang merelakan “maruah” kita dinodai kerana memaafkan negeri ini dikembalikan kepada sistem “residen” yang menjaga usaha komunikasi kerajaan.

Kita yang bertepuk sakan apabila kaya sekejap dengan BR1M dan pemberian yang menjadi pengubat kemarahan.

Bagi mengelakkan kita kekal tolol, maka adalah sahabat Melayu kita yang bijak, mahu memposisikan diri di hadapan, atas nama kononnya menjaga maruah Melayu.

Fakta sebenar, mungkin sahaja mereka yang membenarkan kita dinodai selama ini.

Terpulang, jika kamu merasakan dengan turun memakai baju merah di Bukit Bintang dan Petaling Street itu mengembalikan maruah dan martabat, maka teruskanlah.

Jika kamu merasakan mengalir darah anak Cina di Low Yatt itu membawa kebahagiaan sebagai kaum Melayu; nak aku apakan.

Namun harus aku ingatkan, kepada Melayu yang berbinkan “permainan sukan”, mahupun lelaki separa Melayu yang berbinkan “restoran sendiri” – kalian adalah perlambangan level IQ dan EQ Melayu mutakhir ini.

Jangan basahkan lidah kalian dengan kata perjuangan Melayu, kerana semuanya dilakukan atas nama dan kepentingan diri sendiri.

Siapapun di belakang kalian, mereka juga tidak punya kematangan pemikiran. Mereka terdesak, untuk mengaitkan perjuangan Melayu bagi menjaga punggung sendiri.

Sudah-sudahlah dibodohkan Melayu dengan acara tolol yang berjemaah ini. Kami hanya ingin hidup tenang dan harmoni. Kami hanya ingin mencari rezeki yang sedikit di bumi bertuah ini.

Kami sedikitpun tidak rasa terhina dengan himpunan baju kuning. Malah, kami merasakan mereka jauh lebih berani daripada kami yang hanya jadi pemerhati.

Benar, kami juga tidak setuju dengan perbuatan memijak wajah pemimpin. Bab itu, kita bersama.

Namun itu tidak bermakna kita perlu berarak dan membuat onar yang sama.

Kalau himpunan maruah ini bertujuan menjulang nama peribadi dan parti, percayalah ia akan hanya menambah hanyir, busuk dan bacin kepimpinan yang ada.

Sudah-sudahlah. Apa kalian tidak takut dosa memperbodohkan bangsa sendiri? Kalaupun jahil dan bodoh, tak bolehkah ambil pendekatan nafsi-nafsi.

Jika himpunan menjaga maruah inilah respons paling bijak yang mampu kita fikirkan, ia suatu hakikat yang amat menyedihkan. Kurang benar agaknya kaum kita ini menggunakan akal dan otak, atau sel sudah banyak rosak kerana terlalu kerap menelan Catuaba dan Viagra.

Mungkin sudah perlu kita jadikan minyak lintah sebagai gel rambut. Supaya kaum Melayu kita jadi senonoh dan lebih bijak. – 2 September, 2015.

WASHINGTON: America’s political divisions turned violent on Washington’s streets during U.S. President Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday, as black-clad anti-establishment activists set fires and clashed with police, while Trump supporters cheered the new chief executive.

Hundreds of protesters with varying agendas marched through downtown, and some groups clashed with police, throwing rocks and bottles, which police responded to with tear gas and concussion grenades. A helicopter hovered low overhead.

At one flash point, a protester hurled an object through the passenger window of a police van, which sped away in reverse as demonstrators cheered. Earlier, activists wearing masks used chunks of pavement and baseball bats to shatter the windows of a Bank of America branch and a McDonald’s outlet, all symbols of American capitalism.

Multiple vehicles were set on fire, including a black limousine and a television truck. A knot of people dragged garbage cans into a street a few blocks from the White House and set them ablaze, later throwing a red cap bearing Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan into the flames.

Police said at least 217 people were arrested and six officers were injured in scuffles with activists. The people arrested would be held overnight before making court appearances on Saturday, Peter Newsham, interim chief of the Metropolitan Police Department, told a news conference. Newsham added that police would continue to monitor security around the night’s celebrations.

Friday’s protests played out just blocks from Pennsylvania Avenue, where New York businessman-turned-Republican politician Trump took part in the traditional parade a newly sworn in president takes from the U.S. Capitol to the White House.

The various protest groups scattered around the city chanted anti-Trump slogans and carried signs with slogans including “Trump is not president” and “Make Racists Afraid Again.”

“Trump is not going to be stopped at the top, he’s going to be stopped from the bottom, from people rising up,” said Ben Allen, a 69-year-old retired teacher from San Francisco. “We support the right of everybody in this country, no matter what nationality, what religion, the color of their skin, to be respected as a human being, and this guy doesn’t respect anybody.”

Trump supporter Ryan Shiring, 21, stood nervously with a group of friends near a pile of smoldering trash cans.

“We thought there would be protests but we didn’t expect violence,” said Shiring, a college student from Hartford, Connecticut. “We were hoping for a completely peaceful transfer of power.”

Democratic officials, including Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser, condemned the violence.

The U.S. Secret Service, Washington police and other law enforcement agencies had about 28,000 officers in place to secure a roughly three-square-mile (7.8 square km) of the city.

Trump, a former reality TV star, angered many liberal Americans during his stunningly successful campaign with demeaning comments on women and immigrants. His inauguration speech was a populist and nationalist rallying cry.

Protesters and police said the black-clad violent activists were acting independently of organized opposition to Trump.

The Disrupt J20 group on Twitter said its anger was not directed only at Trump, and that it would also have demonstrated had Democrat Hillary Clinton won the election last November.

Not far from the White House, Bob Hrifko, a member of the Bikers for Trump group, said he was struck in the face with an aluminum chair when he tried to intervene in a scuffle involving police and protesters.

“We need more order. This ain’t right,” said Hrifko, who was bleeding from a cut under his eye.

The number of people who turned out for the midday swearing-in ceremony in the rain appeared to be significantly smaller than the estimated 2 million who attended Democrat Barack Obama’s first inauguration in 2009. Overhead video of the National Mall showed sections of the white matting laid down to protect the grass were largely empty.

The city’s Metro subway system reported ridership levels as of 11 a.m. (1600 GMT) at less than half of what was seen in 2013 or 2009 and roughly on par with George W. Bush’s second inauguration in 2005.

Sympathy protests were held around the nation and the world, in cities including Los Angeles, Tokyo and London. But in Moscow, Russians hoping Trump will usher in a new era of detente with their country celebrated his inauguration.

In Washington, David Guthrie, a long-haired, bearded, 36-year-old from South Bend, Indiana, stood stark naked on a street corner with an obscenity and “Trump” written on his buttocks in black magic marker.

As he stood, he was pepper sprayed by police, but stood with his eyes clenched, saying he wanted to prompt “a national conversation on the illegitimacy of the #Trump presidency.”

“I need a shower,” he said, as fellow protesters helped him walk away, wrapped in a silver blanket.
