    In other southeast Asian news, for the first time since ever, an opposition party has taken the simple majority in Malaysia's 14th General Election.
    Former prime minister Tun Dr. Mahathir, 4th prime minister of Malaysia and representing the Pakatan Harapan (Coalition of Hope) at age 93, has been sworn in as Malaysia's 7th prime minister on 10th May 2018.

    People all over local social media are celebrating his victory, but mostly, we're just happy that Najib's rule and his corrupt practices have finally come to an end. The Malaysian community, especially young adults born in the 80s and 90s, feel more empowered now than ever before.

    I'm cautiously optimistic for what the future holds.

    Shit, I wished it would happen in Mar-A lAOGO.

    At first I was hyped by the Kim.Trump meeting. But after noticing the difference of height between the two douchebags, I figured that Kim wouldn't allow pictures. wata let down.
    They'll probably take a picture for the handshake though. They'll be sitting I guess

    Mahathir's had his own brand of controversy, no, what with his own authoritarian practices eventually setting up some shady shit later administrations would do? To say nothing of his rocky relationship with our own head honcho LKY.

    Also I still can't get over the whole opposition coalition being akin to what is basically 'Emperor Palpatine allying with the Rebels to take down Darth Vader'

    Certainly true, and I'm no big fan of Mahathir myself (hence my cautious optimism. I have noticed his entire platform is mostly berating Najib's government with little information about what he plans to do next), but what's important here is the people realising just how much power they hold.
    If Mahathir or his party decides to do something that doesn't agree with the general populace, the people know they can elect someone else.

    I like to think of it as less a victory for Mahathir and more a victory for the democratic process in Malaysia.

    Oh I'm sure he does hear other languages. Catch is that he thinks it means they don't belong in America, =

    “Your staff is speaking Spanish to customers when they should be speaking English,” the man says.
    This idiot thinks that coming to America means they must speak English from then on and if they don't then they don't belong.
    Worse is the assumptions he makes due to someone speaking another language.

    “My guess is, they’re not documented, so my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country,” he says. “They have the balls to come here and live off of my money? I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to be here. The least they could do, the least they could do is speak English.”
    Now this part really pisses me off. I had Latina friends who were bilingual. They were not immigrants, nor grandchildren of immigrants. Nor did they live on welfare. And she wasn't a unique person, esp. for being in Texas, as there were Hispanics fighting for the Republic of Texas and have been citizens as long as their white brothers-in-arms.
    This asshole thinks that just because they speak Spanish means they can't afford to support themselves while ignoring the fact that a) some of the Spanish speakers are employees so they are working, b)others are customers paying for their coffee, c) unless NY is different, I don't know about coffee houses accepting food stamps so they would be paying cash, not using govt funds that is in SNAP aka 'food stamps'.

    As someone from Texas what you don't get is that all of this is extra racist/stupid in a NY context. Odds are very good that they were Puerto Rican.
    And welp, one does not immigrate from Puerto Rico to the US.

    Between this guy and Trump I have to wonder if horrible assholes in NYC have some secret sky tube they avoid the streets with.

    Amazing how this lawyer's hatred of hearing Spanish being spoken doesn't interfere with him touting his ability to speak it on his website.

    The welfare stuff racists like to spout at brown people is one of those things that makes me and and want to laugh. White people are the main users of welfare. But this guy is getting destroyed and it's wonderful.
