How Chinese are treated in the motherland … UK daily The Independent reports that China singularly carries out the death penalty on its own citizens in greater number than all the death sentences in other countries of the world put together.
Apparently Beijing considers its executed prisoners as the most problematic Chinese.
How Chinese were treated by other countries
“… think of those Boat People (many of them of Chinese origin) forced to flee Vietnam; think of Cambodia, where the Chinese were killed or driven away; think of Indonesia, with its persecution and expulsion of the Chinese, think of the Philippines where for so long, the Chinese were effectively denied citizenship.”
There is currently a simmering anti-Chinese sentiment among the Burmese.
The Chinese made up the largest ethnic minority group in Cambodia before 1970.
In 1975, the Chinese population in Cambodia was 425,000. Of this number, only 200,000 Chinese survived the next four years. More than half the Chinese population was decimated by Pol Pot’s genocidal Khmer Rouge cadres.
A few months ago this year in May, there were the anti-China/Chinese riots in Hanoi.
The Vietnamese who in the late 1970s and 1980s made “boat people” an international news headline were of Chinese origin. I wonder if they had also vociferously proclaimed that they were Anak Bangsa Vietnam (but then ready to take the first boat to Tasmania).
The Jakarta race riot occurred on 12-14 May 1998.
May appears to be a suey (bad) month for the Chinese diaspora.
The ‘Filipino First’ policy privileged natural born Filipinos over naturalized Filipinos, including preference in government jobs. It was arduous for the Chinese to become citizens in the country until 1974 when President Ferdinand Marcos relaxed the naturalization process and enabling many Chinese to become Philippine citizens.
The majority of its Chinese residents were denied status as citizen at the country’s independence. A lot of the Chinese there do not hold a Brunei passport.
One supposes that if the Brunei Chinese had gotten their citizenship on a silver platter, they would behave like the Chinese in Malaysia.
USA & Australia
The USA had in the past legislated the Chinese Exclusion Act on account that the Chinese immigrants were impossible to be assimilated while in the land Down Under too a ‘White Australia’ policy was adopted at one time that shut the country’s door on non-whites.
Even up till the noughties (turn of the millennium), immigration controls in Australia were tight enough as to reject Hannah Yeoh’s application for Permanent Residence.
Meanwhile in Malaysia
Najib Razak inadvertently misleads the Chinese into believing that vernacular school is a constitutional guarantee.
And the Chinese insist it is the Malays who are the pendatang.
There is computer software that can run CSI to see whether a photo has been doctored or not. It looks like an X-ray process.
Below is an example of gambar yang tidak diusik, i.e. it has not been Photoshopped.
You can see the building outlines are clearly marked and have purple highlights. (more…)
There’s this controversial book called The Chinese Dilemma by Ye Lin-Sheng published in 2003.
The Yahudi Yeohs have most predictably spewed their characteristic venom at the author – such as that he is an abject apologist lah, a race traitor lah and what not (I’m only mentioning here the printable labels; even nastier – unprintable – descriptions abound).
If you’re curious as to what he wrote that caused the YYs to throw a hissy fit, please do read on. (more…)
The latest news in Ismaweb today – ‘Pembela buat laporan polis terhadap perwakilan Gerakan’.
Pembela is a coalition of more than 50 Muslim NGOs. Isma plays a leading role in Pembela; Isma deputy president Aminuddin Yahya is also the Pembela deputy chairman.
The Gerakan delegate in his speech at his party AGM said that Malays are pendatang too. His contention is a popular refrain among the opposition-supporting Chinese (who make up 90 percent of the Chinese population in Malaysia and include Gerakan and MCA members). (more…)
Dear YAB Dato’ Seri,
You say that the Chinese votes fell during GE13 because Chinese voters believed “lies” about Bangladeshi phantom voters.
Actually they hate your party and want Umno dead and BN buried. (more…)
Malaysia practises the separation of powers. Nancy Shukri (pix below) as an MP is an elected member of the legislature and, as a cabinet minister, is a member of the executive.
On the other hand, the high office of the Attorney-General is provided for under Article 145 of the Federal Constitution.
So why are the Yahudi Yeohs demanding that Nancy interfere with the AG ‘s job? (more…)
The popular trope among Malays is that the Chinese annually top Malaysia’s billionaires list, i.e. having the most money.
What escapes public attention is that we’re also the most registered voters, with the highest election turnout and we’re hyperactive in the political sphere. The reason is simple: DAP rajin sakan, Umno parti paling tidak apa. (more…)
