Umno bets on race appeal to bury Pakatan

If this Malaysian Insider headline caption and it's reportage is accurate, where does that leave the other components within the Barisan Nasional coalition?

Is this right-wing tilt in UMNO the only strategy worth pursuing?

Does this mean that UMNO is, by its conduct, sending a clear signal to all and sundry that it does not subscribe to the famous multi-communal bargain any longer?

Where does that leave the rest of Malaysia who supported the centrist and moderate position that Barisan Nasional is famous for?

Who are the UMNO "strategists" that have concocted this "strategy"?

What is the stand of the other Barisan Nasional components to this right-wing tilt of UMNO?

For the current UMNO cheif strategist, look no further than PM Najib.

It's all his handiwork and it's going to backfire on him in a spectacular way.

That's the price UMNO/BN and Najib will pay for promoting the Race and religion card. It will never work!!

We are all of 1 race, the Human Race. That is all that really matters.
