First of all, is Ronnie's arguments factually incorrect ?
I meant, is it wrong to say that PKMM together with its wings API and AWAS were proposing for merdeka earlier than Umno ?
In fact, when PKMM started proposing for merdeka, Umno was still trying to kick away Malayan Union but still wanting to be a British colony, just in another form, perhaps one where Sultan-sultan's power are not curbed.
Look at Malaysia today. Toon Dr. M took away much more power from Sultan-sultan than the Brits. Yet, which party does Toon belong to ?
Secondly, did Ronnie really claim that it's CPM that really fought for merdeka ? I believe going thru the original statement and everyone will be able to see.
Thirdly, and this is what amuses most of us, why does everyone fear so much to be identifed as Commies supporter ? Can't even we give credit to where it's due if Commies really did some ?
Terrorism was the mean, but the end was nevertheless a Commie state, one where everyone is equal. Ruling out one not by judging its end but mean, I guess we must also stop supporting Palestinians' struggle for independence, the way we ignore the Malays in Patani Darussalam's call for independence.
