Guan Eng wants a fight with the police

The Penang chief minister has rallied to the defence of his bajungu by declaring that thanks to the Purple Shirts patrol, his state is the safest in Malaysia.

In a press statement today, Lim Guan Eng confers on Penang the unofficial status of “safest”.

His claim is highly suspect. In fact and to the contrary, Penang is the ethnic hotspot where conflict is most likely to erupt into sectarian violence.

The Chinese in Penang have veered too far from the national mainstream. It is due to this very reason, i.e. Penang Chinese choosing to run along their own separate side stream, that the KOMA bajungu took on a life of its own and bourgeoned to almost 10,000 members.

Believing their own propaganda is a big problem. Pakatan had been crowing how they won 52 percent of the popular vote against the BN’s 47 percent. It took Najib Razak 214 days to finally come up with a counter argument.

On 5 Dec 2013 – which was seven months (!) after the conclusion of GE13 – Najib told the Umno general assembly at PWTC that Pakatan was really only more popular among KL-ites, Selangorians, Kelantanese and Penangites.

In his keynote address to the party delegates, the Umno president said: “Jika dikira undi popular sekalipun, kita tetap menang di sembilan negeri daripada 14 buah negeri, manakala mereka hanya menang undi popular di empat negeri sahaja”.

13th General Election Result for Penang State

If you’ll look at the Penang DUN results table above, you can see that MCA, Gerakan and MIC scored three eggs (big, fat zeroes) in GE13. Collectively the three BN satellite parties contested altogether 25 seats and lost every single one of them.

Their total wipeout reflects the anti-establishment sentiment prevalent among the non-Malays in Penang.

mca hampasHead-to-head in Penang the last general election, Pakatan received 621,706 votes against 498,656 votes collected by the BN for the 40 state seats. Needless to say, support for Pakatan is overwhelming in Penang at 55.5 percent compared with the rest of the country (52%).

There is a major difference between the Pakatan-BN schism in Penang compared to the electoral split in fellow opposition state Kelantan.

In Kelantan, the election was fought between PAS and Umno, and the electorate was PAS Malays vs Umno Malays. In Penang, the battle was between DAP and Umno, and between Chinese and Indians vs Malays.

You must remember that the BN’s Penang seats were delivered solely by Umno, meaning Malay voters. PAS won only one seat in the 40-seat Penang state assembly. You can interpret this to mean that support for Pakatan among Penang Malays is weak.

The PAS-Malay vs Umno-Malay situation in Kelantan poses no danger whereas the ethnic divide is clear-cut and deep in Penang, and made worse by the Christian evangelism that has taken hold there.

Banking on plane crash to unite Malaysians

In his recent Merdeka Day speech, the PM was still chasing his 1Malaysia rainbow.

1MalaysiaFor his first Merdeka ‘Amanat’, Najib talked about strengthening solidarity among the rakyat, specifically, “kebersatuan dalam kesedihan [menghadapi] tragedi MH17 …  berkongsi duka nestapa … sewaktu Hari Berkabung di seluruh negara”.

His second Amanat strained desperately at the same ‘Unity’ theme – “hidup saling ganding-bergandingan, demi sebuah hasrat yang murni itu” while the third Amanat indulged in a spot of wishful thinking:

“walau apa dugaan melanda, walau apa ujian melintang … marilah sama-sama berusaha gigih menggapai kejayaan demi generasi dan keturunan hari muka”.

A vox populi article today in Malaysiakini is headlined ‘2Putrajaya – PM says one thing, Sabri says another (screenshot below). Agriculture Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob’s call for Malay unity is contrary to Najib’s unity plea.

The irony did not escape the opposition either that the police swoop on the bajungu had commenced on National Day. .

2Putrajaya - PM says one thing, Sabri says another - Malaysiakini 2014-09-02 14-02-49

Please note the yellow highlight in the Malaysiakini article above:

A subscriber going by the Indian name “Vijay” revealed that he attended church on Merdeka morning (which so happens fell on a Sunday this year). From their name alone, it does not cross your mind that they are Christian and thus you tend to under-estimate the evangelista presence and influence.

There are really a lot of Christians whose numbers were yet to be accurately reflected in the last decennial census of the Malaysian population in 2010 but will surely show up in the next census in 2020.

Chinese hate Utusan but Umno coddles The J-Star

The visibly pro-opposition media are Malaysiakini and its ilk but the foremost opposition media is undoubtedly The J-Star.

Twitter account Star Editor’s Choice had tweeted “1Msia for Utusan to print outrageous lies” (see archival screenshot above) which was later mirrored by Hannah Yeoh who tweeted “What kind of 1Malaysia Prime Minister we have in @NajibRazak when he allows Utusan Malaysia to sell lies daily?”

We’re aware with how much hostility the DAP and their supporters treat Utusan - see @hannahyeoh tweets collection below.

Yet Umno and its supporters are willing to allow Najib Razak to ignore the 800lb gorilla in the room which is the Christian paper J-Star.

MCA media is a Penang DAP creature

The J-Star was born in Penang.

The paper grew up in Penang.

Its senior editors are Penang boys and Penang girls, most prominently the media group’s CEO Wong Chun Wai.

Penang sticks out like a sore thumb

Penangites think their state was founded by an orang putih – Sir Francis Light.

Penang is the only state in the peninsula that is not a Malay state.

Penang is the only state in the whole country to have a non-Malay chief executive. All the other 12 Menteri Besar and Ketua Menteri are Malay.

Penang is DAP-addicted and drunk on the J-Juice.

J-Star newsroom is Nest of Evangelistas

The Chinese tsunami could not have happened without the collusion of the MCA.

DAP could not have won the propaganda war without the tacit cooperation of the MCA media.

When Hannah Yeoh was appointed Selangor Speaker, The J-Star‘s ecstatic editors tweeted the ‘glad tidings’ 10 times within the short span of 24 hours.

Everybody knows that MCA has already transferred lock, stock and barrel its Chinese vote share to the DAP.

Meanwhile the MCA media can now be seen trying subtly to move the non-Chinese sympathy to the DAP camp.

Come GE14, the MCA will be dead so there is nothing left for MCA to lose now. This is why The J-Star can be so brazen.

Combustion

.
Bajungu are mostly Chinese. PDRM are mostly Malay.

The Penang Chief Minister is spoiling for a fight with the Inspector General of Police. And he might just get his wish. The downside is that stray bullets from the shootout at OK Corral will cause innocent people to be hurt.

Guan Eng being the Dapster-gangster that he is, and Penang Chinese being the ‘exceptional’ (unlike everybody else in Malaysia) people that they are, both make for a very unfortunate match. The marriage between a DAP evangelista leadership and a contrarian Penang population is a recipe for disaster.

Lim Guan Eng “seething with anger”

Yesterday on our National Day, 155 bajungu were arrested by police in Penang. The bajungu or Purple Shirts are reportedly a 10,000-strong vigilante force.

What motivated Penang to create this extralegal force when the other states do not have as such? (more…)

Selangor saga: Trusting PAS to do the right thing

The PKR kangaroo court has just sentenced Khalid Ibrahim in absentia.

Our Menteri Besar is sacked by his party. (By “our”, I’m speaking as an anak jati Selangor – born here, residing here and voted here in past elections.) This move is the prelude to ousting TS Khalid from his MB post.

In order to push their ouster of him, PKR, DAP and their supporters have unforgivably fitnah the man. It is despicable but not unsurprising the kind of lies that they can concoct.

Lim Kit Siang made an offer yesterday:

“DAP is prepared to provide free legal service to Kiki if she wants to appeal against the RM5,000 fine and the DAP MP for Puchong, Gobind Singh Deo has confirmed that the DAP Legal Bureau headed by him is prepared to render such a service.” (more…)
