Zairil Khir Johari diwawancara oleh Onn Yeoh semalam melalui podcast.

0:48 — “But the Umno that he [Mohd Khir Johari] was involved with is completely different from the Umno today … in terms of the principles, even in terms of the membership make-up.”

1:10 — “Today Umno is made up of predominantly contractors, businessmen.”

2:08 — “None of them [father's old friends] could see a future for Umno beyond five or ten years. They all told me forget about Umno, seriously.”

2:20 — “To put it crudely, it is A-B-U.”

3.42: — [on what made him join DAP] “And being a Member of Parliament and you could see this guy [Liew Chin Tong, Bukit Bendera MP] is going places at such a young age.”

5:45 — No, never, never. Pre-308 you’d never imagine that [English-speaking Chinese would join DAP] but post-308, the fact is that we have managed Penang and we have managed Penang well. My boss has done a very good job in Penang. I think that’s the consensus you get internationally or in The Economist, in Bloomberg or in whatever you want.”

6:35 — “And the very fact is that BN no longer represents any middle ground in the sense that, you know, they’ve gone extreme on both sides, at the Chinese and the Malay.”

KEMASKINI — April 25, 9.45 am

Calvin Sakaran menyumbangkan analisa beliau, bawah. (TQ)

Let’s analyze his responses a little deeper:

1. “But the Umno that he [Mohd Khir Johari] was involved with is completely different from the Umno today … in terms of the principles, even in terms of the membership make-up.”

—- Isn’t the same can be said of DAP as well ? Instead of activists and lawyers fighting for justice and principles, we have accountants and event planners cultivating a cult of personality.

2. “Today Umno is made up of predominantly contractors, businessmen.”

—- Isn’t the same applies to DAP, to an even bigger extent ? In Penang most of DAP’s supporters are businessmen and contractors who are benefitting handsomely for helping DAP

3. “None of them [father's old friends] could see a future for Umno beyond five or ten years. They all told me forget about Umno, seriously.”

—- Isn’t this is the same thing what are the veteran DAP leaders are saying about DAP?

4. [on what made him join DAP] “And being a Member of Parliament and you could see this guy [Liew Chin Tong, Bukit Bendera MP] is going places at such a young age.”

— Well, this is the giveaway isn’t it ? Zairil being not smart, blurted out the real reason why he joined DAP – to ride the rocket to the very top in record time.

5. “No, never, never. Pre-308 you’d never imagine that [English-speaking Chinese would join DAP]“

– Is he referring to himself ?

6. “And the very fact is that BN no longer represents any middle ground in the sense that, you know, they’ve gone extreme on both sides, at the Chinese and the Malay.”

— You can accuse BN going extreme on race but what about going extreme on religion – Christianity (DAP) and Islam (PAS) ?

    Amazingly these people, for some reason, they refuse to talk about their party’s own inner working, that their own leader is only selected by the central working committee only speaks volume on the type of democracy they preach upon. And yet, they chose to speak about UMNO.

    and this “None of them [father's old friends] could see a future for Umno beyond five or ten years. They all told me forget about Umno, seriously.” was like how many years have they spoken to you? do you mind tell us which “old friend” is that, surely you should check if this “old friend” is still umno or are they already in DAP? i dont see any other malay champion in there beside aspan and sak mongkol oh sorry you also malay wonder why you are not the towering malay though…

    That Oon Yeoh is a DAPster is a well-known fact so he was acting more as a PR consultant than a journo during the podcast.
    So the questions that people really wanted to know was not asked.

    Let’s assume Zairul cannot identify with UMNO’s struggle because it is corrupted/lost its direction/racist/blah blah. So the choices open for him is PKR, PAS and DAP in that order. So real question should be why DAP and not PKR ?

    If he claims UMNO is full of businessmen, then why choose DAP which is also crawling with businessment and contractors ?

    By joining DAP, what Zairil’s stand on NEP, since DAP is opposed to the policy.

    And if we talk about meritocracy, what kinds of qualifications that Zairil has to merit the position of CEO of Penang Institute or even Special Officer for LGE ?

    Isn’t these appointments are another Ali Baba practice in disguise where the Malays are elevated into positions for tokenism and merely to fill the quota ?

    Isn’t Zairil embarassed to use his deceased father’s name to get into DAP and to obtain high positions rather than via his own efforts ?

    I tried to search for Zairil’s profile but unable to find much on his studies and experience. Since DAP did not flaunt his “academic qualifications” and “outstanding achievements”, I conclude that he does not have much in the way of education and experience.

    This is DAP’s brand of meritocracy in action !

    The DAP is a party of cultists. Just look at the crazed worshiping we see on a daily basis. Saint Hannah, The Caliph, the list goes on. But what the crazed worshipers don’t realize is that they are actually worshiping dung. Now Dapsters, do you know what dung is ?

    The real DAP leaders had abandoned that party a long time ago. Wee Choo Keong, Kerk Kim Hock, Lee Lam Thye. Now those were real leaders, unlike the crazed pack we have now.

    It is easy to go places nowadays with the DAP. The only requirement is to gather a large crowd of dung worshipers on cyberspace by spitting venom on your rival, basically all you need is a venomous tongue. Just look at Master Lim and The Virgin Hannah.

    English-speaking Chinese joined the DAP way before 308. It was due to the results of 308 that these previously “unknown” dung were presented with the opportunity to “emerge” to the surface.

    And of course the DAP represents the middle ground. How do you define middle ground ? In the DAP’s definition, if you propagate Malaysian First, Middle Malaysia, then obviously the DAP occupies the “middle” ground. But you have a problem here. Since your Malaysian First and Middle Malaysia are not accepted by the vast majority of Malays and other natives in Sabah and Sarawak, plus the rejection of the Indian community of your dung ideology (ask Uthaya), your “middle” ground does not look like middle ground at all.

    2. “Today Umno is made up of predominantly contractors, businessmen.”

    All those aunties and youths that turned up at the UMNO’s recent rally, all 100 thousands of them who filled up the stadiums’ seats and field must be businessmen and contractors.

    Ahmad Ibrahim,

    DAP demonises UMNO as it is the only party with strengh that stands on its way .

    I find that UMNO is tolerant and accomodating. Its record in race relation is superb contrary to what DAPS want to portray. we can say nasty thing to UMNO leaders but they never bar any newspaper from their press conference.

    DAP condemns Dr mahathir for cronysm but Dr mahathir never made any attempt to put Mukhriz as Minister although he can do that during his tenure as the Prime minister.

    compare with Kit siang who humiliated penang DAP Chairman by putting Guan Eng as Chief minister. Now that is real nepotism .

    i’m curious about the reaction, if there is any, from pak khir’s biological children to this zairil’s bandying their late father’s name in order to create some sort of political relevance for himself.

    i also wonder about this poseur’s real father. is he dead or is he just divorced from this guy’s mother. if he is still alive, i wonder how he feels about being “disowned” by this upstart? and if he has other children, in other words zairil’s real siblings, i wonder why are they keeping quiet about this blatant diss to their shared heritage?

      Zairil’s biological father and his real siblings are too embarrassed to even talk about it I think, so you know, when people are that embarrassed they stay silent.

    Helen,

    So what’s your prediction for the coming elections? Will Pakatan delay its state elections and wait to see how they perform in the general election? Will BN win in GE13? What about two-third majority? Enlighten us with your analyses.

    Swee Leong,

    I notice that Malays are leaning towards UMNO. I can safely say that this time UMNO will gain Malay votes.

    As for PKR, its appeal on the Malays are waning. The same goes to PAS. PAS is perceived as selling its soul to please DAP.

    Whether PR delays state election or not is immaterial. It will eventually needs to face BN . Separate election will only confirm what UMNO is telling the Malays: that they(PR) are afraid and worse still selfish.

    As for the Chinese, it is up to them to decide whether to be inside the Federal Govt or outside the Govt. No big deal

      Saudara Shamsul,

      Pada pendapat saya kaum Cina harus bangun dari mimpi mereka. Mereka harus sedar laungan ‘saudagar saudagar mimpi’ boleh menyebabkan mereka kehilangan apa yang ada sekarang dan mengurangkan pengaruh politik mereka dimasa depan.

      1- Adakah Najib akan kalah atau menang ?
      Kawan Dap saya kata 50/50….jadi saya kata Najib menang lah
      macam tu sebab dia orang ‘boleh tipu’ he…he.

      Jadi soalan Nya sekarang adakah kaum Cina mau menyumbang dalam kemenangan itu atau membiarkan Najib menang dengan sokongan orang orang Melayu, lebih lebih lagi puak Perkasa, Jati dll.?

      ATapi ini cuma pendapat saya.
