Zamkata today tackled the topic of the The J-Star demanding ‘Dirikan tugu peringatan komunis dan bangunkan Muzium Cina di Malaysia’.
Former Utusan group editor Zainuddin Maidin pinpointed:
“The Star hari ini juga menyiarkan tulisan June H.L.Wong (Views page 25) menuntut supaya dibangunkan sebuah Muzium China di Malaysia untuk mempamerkan sejarah dan jasa orang Cina terutamanya sumbangan mereka menentang komunis dalam masa dharurat malah disebutkannya tentang barang-barang peninggalan Yap Ah Loy yang membuka Kuala Lumpur tidak ada di Muzium Negara sebaliknya terpamer di Muzium Peranakan di Singapura.”
June H.L.Wong, who is The Star managing editor, says one thing and A. Kadir Jasin, who is the former NSTP group editor, says another.
You can read and compare both of what they say below. Their contradictory stances are reflective of MCA-controlled Star‘s divergence from BN in its insistence that the Chinese tsunami did NOT happen, whereas the Umno-linked media are convinced that it did — see Utusan‘s conclusions on the GE13 results.
Responding to Kadir’s blog on the Lahad Datu armed forces, Malaysiakini subscriber Lynn – screenshot of her comment below – remarked that “Umno patriots had and always will be sitting in their large homes paid for through corruption and eating themselves obese. Patriots my ass. We should hang all of them.”
Lynn is a typical ABU supporter. They all sound like that.
As for Lynn’s jibe “eating themselves obese”, we can see from his photo below that Kadir Jasin (holding microphone) does not have an ounce of superfluous fat.
On the other hand, the editor sitting on the extreme left – who should really cut down on his bah kut teh consumption – is Wong Sai Wan who has just recently left The Star on account of not being able to tolerate Aunty, or so the grapevine goes.
Star too full of Wongs
Star Aunty June Wong in her most recent column ‘Rebooting Chinese history’ (The Star, 19 June 2013) wrote today:
“As the nation mourned the loss of eight policemen and two soldiers and hailed them as heroes in the recent Lahad Datu armed intrusion, a blogger [June Wong is referring to Kadir here] thought fit to write:
“As has always been the case, when we send our policemen and soldiers into battle and they are killed or injured, the chances are they are Melayus and bumiputeras. Perhaps there is wisdom in getting more Chinese and Indians to join the armed forces so that they, too, can die for one Malaysia.” [quoted June from Kadir Jasin's blog]
[June Wong continues:] “Online columnist K. Temoc who took umbrage at this blogger’s [Kadir] ‘caustic and unfair’ remarks pointed out that five Chinese police officers have been awarded the nation’s highest gallantry award, the Seri Pahlawan Gagah Perkasa (SP), two posthumously.
“Again, it shows how little is known about non-Malay heroes who served in the security forces.
“This blogger [Kadir] certainly didn’t and he clearly buys into the belief that non-Malays aren’t willing to risk life and limb for the country and doesn’t consider why there are so few of them in uniform today.” [June Wong's quote ends]
Do you think Kadir’s description of Malay and bumiputera policemen and soldiers reflected reality more closely? Or do you think that The Star editor June Wong’s description of Chinese winners of the pingat Seri Pahlawan Gagah Perkasa is more befitting of our reality?
Do you believe that the contents of The Star reflect any Malaysian reality at all?

Utusan assistant chief editor Zaini Hassan wrote today:
“Dalam BN … MP Cina hanyalah 11 orang atau 8%!

Dr Mahathir Mohamad wrote in his blog Che Det today that “the demonstrations accusing the BN of fraud and cheating in the elections, despite being organised by Anwar and the PKR, are largely attended by Chinese, especially the young”.
“Hence, Shabery Cheek’s announcement only shows that the BN government is so kiasu that it wants to shut down Pakatan’s reach and access to social media,” says a press statement today by the DAP’s social media strategist.

One possible reason why the DAP evangelista spokesman yesterday attacked Paul Low, the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, is that some quarters in the Christian-inclined party might have felt that he was betraying their religion.
Senator Paul Low ialah Menteri Dalam Jabatan Perdana Menteri di kalangan 8 orang rakan sejawatan.
Dengan ditambah 3 orang lagi sudah memadai untuk membentuk satu pasukan bolasepak menteri (skuad Jabatan Perdana Menteri).

The Star is striving hard to become Malaysia’s leading opposition news outlet. It’s part of their rebranding exercise post GE13.
Sebelum ini Zam ada kata akan “menyiarkan dari semasa ke semasa betapa kelicinan The Star menjadi duri dalam daging untuk membuka mata seluruh rakyat yang prihatin terhadap keselamatan negara ini”.

The Pakatan ideology is being spread over the social media like wildfire.
One indication of this widespread dispersal of Pakatan memes is the number of clicks on the ‘Share’ button.

The MCA contested 127 Parliament and state seats combined in the general election. It lost a total of 108 of them. The party’s failure rate in GE13 is 85 percent.
I voted MCA for both DUN and Parliament.
It was a last minute decision prompted by Wong Chun Wai’s column today singling out a certain “pro-Barisan” woman blogger (see previous posting).
It’s to do with “might as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb” (English idiom).
Kit Siang wins Gelang Patah.
DAP – 37,718
BN – 21,960

I find it kelakar for Star to bitch about it now since they’ve sold their soul to the devil like years ago. Best part, bukan pasal realisation that the nation can be musnah binasa but because the Red Bean Army starts attacking them. How’s that for conscience and integrity?
