A last attempt to garner support and clean up all their acts the past few years, Pakatan expected some one million people, their supporters as they claimed, to flood the stadium.
Pakatan wants the Saturday (January 12) rally or gathering to be the biggest ever as a show of force to convince Malaysian voters that they are strong as can topple the present BN government.
What Pakatan does at present is psychology – they want Malaysians to think they have the majority support through the gathering – which can influence those on the fence if these group of voters are immature and unwise.
Pakatan, especially Anwar Ibrahim, have all the while been lying to the voters, raising make-believe issues which only he and his partners in Pakatan specialized in that created lots of doubts and distrusts towards the ruling BN.
Failures in all the attempts, they now organize one last attempt, a mammoth attempt, to ‘hammer the last nail in the coffin’ which they had unconsciously prepared for themselves.
The rally has been planned to show force and the possibility is there they would just walk the streets of Kuala Lumpur after that as this is what they wanted after stirring up emotions during the talks in the stadium.
Stirring emotions is Anwar’s specialization as he has been a rebel rouser all along and Saturday’s rally is his final attempt to raise the emotions of supporters to the highest level and after that, let them be on the loose.
Pakatan wants it to be a Tahrin square of Malaysia – in other words the general election need not be held when the people from the stadium stage an uprise – simple and easy.
What else can they think of since all attempts failed and further attempts of lying would erode confidence more as voters continue to analyse and read in-between the acts.
Voters are now no more gullible as in 2008 and Anwar and Pakatan leaders know this given the wrongs and mistakes they made in states they rule since 2008.
Pakatan’s attempts discredit and tarnish Najib Tun Razak and his administration since 2009 when Najib took over the Prime Ministership have backfired as Anwar’s lies unfolded one-by-one without Najib having to go to the courts or fighting back in earnest.
Last of Pakatan’s lie was the Prime Minister had a ‘little stroke’ which majority Malaysians taking it as a joke that reflected Anwar’s stupidity and desperation.
Thus the Saturday’s rally, which venue is now the subject of argument, is to stir up emotions to the highest level and then let ‘nature takes its course’.
The one million expected may not even reach a figure of 100,000 but Pakatan as always, will blame the relevant authorities for preventing supporters from participating.
So this accusation may also be an issue that Anwar will raise to stir up emotions on Saturday.
Whether Pakatan’s strategy will succeed or not is yet to be seen but the logical facts leading to Saturday’s rally are there for every sane and sensible voters to see.
Whether Saturday will be a Taharin Square or not, it is up to Malaysians to think and analyse.
