The Perak DAP convention doormat incident on Sunday was not the best of political judgment, taste or example.
I was taken by surprise when confronted with the doormat and tried to avoid stepping on the three pictures but not completely with success.
I fully share the apology made by the DAP leadership over the incident. In fact, I had on the very same day of the convention suggested to the Perak DAP leadership to tender a public apology over the incident.
The Perak DAP convention doormat incident is a lesson to all politicians to be particularly mindful about sensitivities of Malaysians in a plural society and the propensity of irresponsible politicians to turn a non-racial issue into a racial one.
The DAP leadership has learnt from the mistake.
But have the UMNO and Barisan Nasional leaderships learnt any lessons, whether before or after? The answers to both can only be in the negative. –bloglimkitsiang
