You know your party has a leeeetel problem when …
… your official website is operated by a 16-year-old girl.
Whereas your archrival is a “streetfighter” with hordes of vicious cyber Red Guards not averse to employing Ah Long tactics.
Above is the Merry Christmas greeting at the MCA website.
(I’ve a little bit more to say about it which you can read in The Mole.)
But let’s have a closer look anyway here (see below).
Aaaw, a pink heart growing on a tree. How sweet.
And pretty flowers in pastel colours growing on the heart. Gee MCA.
Oh look, doesn’t Rudolph the Reindeer just have the cutest teddy bear face, huh?
This festive wishes banner is found in the website of the BN component party that claims to be the ruling coalition’s second biggest with a membership of 1.3 million (er, teenage girls?)
The MCA “holly jolly” greeting is found in the website of a party whose president, at their recent AGM, stridently proclaimed: “We are at the political crossroad of a ‘do-or-die’ battle”.
In fact, Chua Soi Lek even declared: “MCA is ready to go to war.”
Hmm, the MCA website does not reflect his martial mood at all.
High Noon or X’mas hi tea?
Okay. So who is it again that MCA is gearing up to gunfight in OK Corral?
I see. The streetfighter whose thugs are rampaging all over the countryside.
It is the MCA president himself who said that Lim Guan Eng is a “street fighter”, ya.
Not I say one but Dr Chua’s own description. You can look it up in Star Online or The Star e-paper (screenshot below).
Ingat Guan Eng the streetfighter
MCA has a website (manned by the Hullo Kitty webmaster) and it has The Star — staffed by a Chinese chauvinist editorial board.
The element of Chinese chauvinism is a necessary job requirement in keeping with the MCA’s reputation as a Chinese chauvinist party.
And MCA is ready for war and prepared to go into battle to win the Chinese votes for BN.
But Houston, we have a problem.
Going by their names, do you reckon that The Star editors possess the requisite Chinese chauvinism to understand and convey the party’s communal struggle?
