Ke mana halatuju dengan perangai ditunjukkan orang Penang?

March 17, 2012 at 12:58 pm 5 comments

Baru-baru ini Lim Guan Eng telah meramal BN mungkin akan “makan telur” (terjemahan dari Hokkien) iaitu kesudahan ‘pembangkang sifar’ di Pulau Pinang pada pilihan raya umum nanti.

Seterusnya, penyokong Pakatan melemparkan kata-kata kesat – “ayam betina tua” dalam Hokkien – terhadap ketua Wanita MCA negeri serta pemimpin BN yang lain, kata Tan Cheng Liang yang mengadu tentang mereka “membuat bising dan bersikap membuli” semalam di forum terbuka anjuran Dewan Perhimpunan Cina dan Kwong Wah Jit Poh.

Ketua Wanita MCA Pulau Pinang itu di antara mangsa-mangsa asakan berbisa masyarakat Cina — yang lainnya termasuk Jessie Ooi (MCA), Ceylyn Tay (Gerakan) dan Hee Yit Foong (bekas DAP).

Pernah seorang timbalan ketua pengarang akhbar Sin Chew mengeluh tentang gaya bahasa mencarut dan maki-hamun yang dilontarkan setiap kali para penyokong pembangkang tidak bersetuju dengan apa-apa pendapat yang dikemukakan.

Katanya perangai mereka memberi gambaran negatif [etnik Han] walhal tingkahlaku kelompok itu sebenarnya jauh menyimpang dari adab Cina yang diturunkan oleh tamadun berusia 5,000 tahun.

Rakan sejawat pengarang kanan itu pula menyatakan kekhuatirannya bahawa masyarakat Cina di Malaysia akan diselubungi perasaan benci dan tidak puas hati kesan hasad dengki.

Sementara itu seorang lagi, iaitu pengarang eksekutif Sin Chew, berpendapat penyokong pembangkang sudah berjaya menjadikan alam maya suatu medan tempur yang berciri “a bloody pandemonium” di mana barang sesiapa yang dianggap “bukan kawan” akan dijadikan sasaran khabar angin palsu dan dibelasah oleh geng-geng [pro-DAP].

Satu lagi rencana pojok di akhbar Sin Chew baru kelmarin membincangkan gejala “web mobsters” (samseng Internet) dan pihak yang mengapi-apikan sentimen marah hanya untuk memenuhi agenda politik.

Peristiwa semalam di mana ketua Wanita MCA Pulau Pinang terpaksa diiring untuk pergi ke keretanya kerana beliau kelihatan berasa terancam (oleh sekumpulan mulut laser anti BN) membayangkan sikap mengganas di online kini sudah terbawa-bawa ke ruang rapat umum.

“STREETFIGHTER”

Dr Chua Soi Lek menyifatkan Lim Guan Eng sebagai seorang pemimpin yang masih berlagak seperti streetfighter ["Dr Chua likened Lim to a true street fighter constantly issuing countless statements to condemn or challenge others"].

Daim Zainuddin pula menyuarakan pendapat bahawa Dr Koh Tsu Koon, yang dikiranya bersikap ‘gentleman’ terpaksa juga menjadi “streetfighter” jika parti Gerakan yang diterajuinya mahu bertarung dengan DAP di Pulau Pinang. (Ibarat api lawan api — “Daim said he was a gentleman, but needed to be a street fighter if he wanted to take on DAP”.)

Mengulas lebih lanjut ialah penganalisa politik Joceline Tan dalam kolumnya di akhbar Star kelmarin yang bertajuk ‘An old man and street fighter lock horns’.

Saya cekup beberapa perenggan menarik rencana tersebut dan menyalin-tampal di bawah dalam bentuk peluru (bullet points).

Joceline menulis:

  • Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng apparently does not fancy being referred to as a street fighter. He told a Chinese newspaper that he does not like the term which has often been used to describe his political style.
    .
  • Lim has not taken well to the criticism [by the Consumer Association of Penang]. He claimed to respect [CAP president S.M. Mohamed] Idris but, at the same time, he had called Idris an “old man” who was forgetful of details …
    .
  • Lim has become the darling of Penang developers but most of his development proposals have stirred controversy …
    .
  • But the one that made everyone, particularly Idris, sit up and take notice was Lim’s plan for some RM8bil worth of infrastructure projects …
    .
  • But a Penang DAP official said … “We know who CAP is … where their funds come from and where it is parked but we don’t want to bring them down. But for them to lock horns with the government of the day, they have everything to lose and nothing to gain.” [Nampak sahaja macam pegawai DAP, yang dipetik Joceline itu, cuba mengugut CAP.]
    .
  • Idris is also just finding out what objecting to the DAP entails. He was visibly shocked by the racist remarks and ugly comments by DAP cybertroopers on the Internet.
    .
  • Welcome to the world of DAP politics, Uncle Idris! DAP supporters and cybertroopers accuse Umno of being racist and arrogant but their own brand of racism and attacks against any form of criticism often put the Umno side to shame.
    .
  • But [Guan Eng] is the king of the hill. He is convinced Penang people will go along with his big ideas. In an interview with a Chinese newspaper, he said that 90% of Chinese and Indians in Penang would vote for his party.

[Beberapa ungkapan di atas dihuruf tebalkan oleh blogger ini]

Kenapa Guan Eng begitu yakin dirinya sudah ada 90 peratus sokongan orang Cina di Pulau Pinang? Saya rasa perangai orang Penang sebiji perangainya … bagaimana kuih begitulah acuannya (lantaran itu, bapa boleh kenal anaknya, dan anak bapanya)

Joceline juga memetik seorang peguam penghuni Pulau Pinang sebagai berkata Guan Eng manusia paling sempurna pada kaca mata orang Penang dan ditambah pula dengan sikap mereka mendendami Umno.

“This and the overwhelming power that his party secured in Penang is what is making him so confident,” ujur peguam tersebut.

Huraiannya tentang ketaksuban kaum Cina Pulau Pinang kepada Lim Guan Eng dan DAP adalah tepat sekali.

Guru kencing berdiri, murid kencing berlari; pengaruh Guan ‘streetfighter’ Eng ke atas Cina Pulau Pinang bukan kepalang. Ke manakah cengkaman, seolah-olah terminum air jampi, ini akan membawa masyarakat Tionghua kelak?

    Hai Helen,

    Saya pernah tinggal di Perai selama 3 tahun. Kawan Cina yang saya dapat hanyalah roommate dan seorang engineer dari KL. Bila berjalan sendirian di Chai Leng Park, banyak mata meleret ke arah Melayu ini, mungkin mereka fikir SB kot?, sebab waktu itu masih ada lagi perniagaan menjual exotic meat di situ. Bukan semua orang unfriendly, tapi ramailah. Mungkin juga sebab air yang mereka minum berperisa kebencian agaknya, sampaikan ada wakil rakyat Dap yang personally turut serta dalam operasi pada satu restoran mamak. Benci sangat ke dia pada mamak tu?
    Barangkali betul juga kata Helen, ” the tail wagging the dog”. Hahaha.

    Salaam. gurau aje tu.

    As of now, development charge in Penang for developers has been increased from 50% to 100%. What does this entail to developers? More expensive homes and opportunity for big profit. For homebuyers? More expensive and limited choice of homes. Those people who currently support the state government will not see the problem now. But, 5-6 years down-the-line, when their children moved out of their homes, then they will see the real deal.

    CM Lim is only interested in showing good balance sheet to the public. But a government does not function like a business entity. Businesses are not finding good opportunity as they used to. Factories are shifting to China where labours are cheap. Unique problem calls for creative solution.

    The CM’s brand of politic will lead us Penangite nowhere. His train will run-out of steam soon, when he runs-out of promises to make.

    These are my thoughts:

    1. We all know the fate of the last head of state who publicaly and arrogantly aimed for “zero opposition” (ie Khir Toyo).

    2. DAP is supposedly a party that stands for democracy and I wonder how does this “zero opposition” plan fits into this model.

    3. Is LGE aiming for a dictatorship in Penang ? In effect this is what he is asking Penangites to do,ie, giving him the supreme power ala Dear Leader of North Korea so he can be the dicatator with unchallenged power. Even with opposition, we have the CM behaving in such irresponsible and unaccountable manner with all kinds of scadals and scams like Bayan Mutiara, eSPice,etc. Imagine with no opposition….It is a scary thought indeed. If indeed Penangites does hand him such mandate, this would be the end of Penang.

    4, Just imagine Najib makes the same statement….our alternative media would have created a ruckus and roasted him. But since LGE is of their hero, this news is conveniently untouched.

    5. The arrogance that LGE makes this statement shows that power has gone to his head and shows such disrepect to the people’s democratic rights. That all the protests and anger over his policies seemed not have registered in his dinosaur head and still lives in the delusion that he’s a demi god and hero in the eyes of Penangites.

    6. My prediction for GE13 based on the sentiments on the ground in Penang is this : PR will still retain Penang but with reduced majority. PAS and PKR will be annihilated and DAP will probably retain their seats and perhaps gain slightly higher majority in their seats. But I don’t think they will win more seats, likely the same number or a few seats less. What will happen is BN will be much stronger and the next term will be a nightmare for LGE as he will not have the 2/3 majority in the state assembly.With stronger BN/UMNO, they will give him hell. And the days where he strolled around arrogantly will be over and I guess GE14 will see BN back in power.

    7.I think other interesting point will be Permatang Pauh. I would like to see if Anwar will re-contest the seat or pass it over to his wife. This is because I hear that there is a good chance that he will lose, as he’s unpopular now.

    In north Korea, they have the Kims. In north M’sia, blessed are they for who have the Lims. Do you discern any difference in Pg between islanders & mainlanders? — Helen

    Helen, I stay in the mainland. The main dfference between the people of these places is not the mindset but class and ethnic divide. The island is the abode of the rich (ie Chinese) while the mainland is where the poor Malays and Indians reside. The mainland has been neglected over the years though KSK tried to revive it somehow and Pak Lah during his brief spell bring some life to it. But during the regime of Dear Lim, this neglect is even more pronounced with the island is more like the center of the universe. Except at the towncenters (BM, Seberang Jaya and Butterworth), the mainland is pre-dominantly Malay.

    In the last few years I have seen increasing movement of Chinese to the mainand due to the high cost of houses but the mainland/island divide is still is along the Malay/Chinese lines.

    However, we are seeing a much larger population growth of the Malays and by GE14, irrespective of the Chinese votes, BN will retake Penang. And if that happens, the CM will be a Malay and rightly so. I would like to see the faces of the Rocket-soft toy totting Chinese DAP supporters when this happens.

    The Chinese here, especially the rabid fanboys and gals of DAP do not think long term and still believe DAP will have a 1000 year rein. I am trying to get into their thick skulls that they are better of being so arrogant and look down upon UMNO, but they just don’t seem to get.

    Did you hear news about Anwar trying to stand in the urban area rather than Permatang Pauh ? Chances are he will be beaten as the Malay sentiment in Penang is even more anti-PR / Anwar after the Kapitan Cina ? Chairman Lim’s arrogant rein.

    Nampaknya kaum Cina pun terjangkit penyakit turun temurun kaum Melayu yer.. iaitu hasad dengki (mungkin segelintir agaknya?)
