Dapsters want to lock up Dr Kua Kia Soong and throw away the key

The mother of all U-Turns is surely the apostolistic Acts of DAP evangelistas embracing Tun Mahathir as new political Lord and Messiah. All in the pursuit of their Holy Grail … for the power and the glory. Like Dr Kua Kia Soong said, DAP’s Down-with-Najib politics is “opportunism in its crudest form”.

Evangelistas are the born again Mahathiristas – opportunists in crudest form looking to Tun M as Saviour, and telling the public that together (DAP + Mahathir), they will ‘Save Malaysia’.

And the most crude, grasping opportunist is comrade Lim Kit Siang who used to believe Tun M was a ‘pirate’. In Dr Kua’s recall, Kit Siang had often labelled the crony capitalist privatization of our national assets by Dr Mahathir as “piratization”.

Today, the Father of Lim Guan Eng is BFF with the Father of Crony Capitalism. Yet Grandpa Dapster, among all the people, knows better than anyone else about the scandals estimated by Barry Wain (author of the Mahathir biography Malaysian Maverick) to cost our country close to RM100 billion. Imagine, all that oil money simply squandered during the Mahathir era.

How can Dapsters still insist that the poison must be rebranded to function as the antidote, and we have no choice but to accept their Orwellian formulation or else be branded traitor to country and the Chinese race?

Love means never having to say you’re sorry

Tun Mahathir has no need ever to apologize to the Dapster evangelistas. He doesn’t have to say sorry because after all they will love him all the same (like how they used also to love PAS in the Pakatan honeymoon period).

Dr Kua Kia Soong gave the opposition a piece of his mind this morning in Malaysiakini. His article titled ‘Mahathir must state what he is sorry for’ is simply too delectable for how it provoked a torrent of abuse and vitriol from the usual suspects. So I’m sharing below in bullet points some of its highlights.

BELOW: The entire Dapster family – Papa Guan Eng, Mama Hannah, Grandpa Kit Siang – fawning on Tun M

DR KUA WROTE (see double quotation marks):

(My own comments are juxtaposed within brackets in italics)

•  Tun M pulled off a de-apology (but the evangelistas are A-okay with that sleight of hand); “If Najib does the same ritualistic apology tomorrow without even mentioning 1MDB, will he also be forgiven by the crypto-Mahathiristas?” (What do you think?)

•  “Mahathir needs to tell us how his thinking has changed from the time he was PM” (Tun doesn’t need to do any changing lah, DAP already UBAH 180-degrees to accommodate the upside down)

  “As one of these PH leaders has recently confessed to being a crypto-Mahathirista while condemning Mahathir for decades: “Under Mahathir, we could hold our heads high, now under Najib…” (I googled but couldn’t find which Pakatan leader Dr Kua was referring to as saying the above. However, the google search result did turn up the following quote by Wong Chun Wai)

“We hold our heads high and proudly tell foreigners that we are Malaysians because of you, Dr Mahathir. You have been an inspiration to all of us.” — Wong Chun Wai

ABOVE: Hannah Yeoh once swore BN lawmakers were “wicked” for supporting detention without trial; today she and her fellow DAP evangelistas are the staunchest supporters of Tun Mahathir who was the Home Minister that oversaw Ops Lalang

•  Dr Kua Kia Soong: “Actually, if I had to say what was the worst thing that Mahathir did during his term in office, I would say it was the forced displacement of 10,000 indigenous peoples from 15 different ethnic communities from their Bakun ancestral lands. It was a wicked thing to do at a time when the Bakun dam project had been suspended as a result of the financial crisis in 1998.”

(Helen Ang: And today, the ever-preaching, forever-pontificating DAP evangelistas have cleansed Tun M of his sins and past Umno “wickedness” … for the DAP, wickedness is not a constant but a variable that can be ‘ubah’, easily adjusted according to political expediency)

Hannah Yeoh and her new purple Star of Bethleham

•  Dr Kua Kia Soong: ‘Then there were the hundreds of plantation communities and urban settlers displaced through Mahathir’s privatization policies.” (Helen: Hindraf classed them under the term DEWs, Displaced Estate Workers)

•  Dr Kua: “Taxes on the rakyat will continue and income disparities will continue to widen while the working class will continue to bear the burden of so-called development.” (Helen: Ditto under a DAP regime.)

Trust that Dr Kua holding up a mirror to the DAP hypocrisy is certain to draw unhinged responses from rabid Dapsters. The reaction has been fast and furious and in the vein of the type of attack that evangelistas usually direct at Ridhuan Tee.

Among comments by Malaysiakini subscribers: “Kit Siang has forgiven Mahathir for the sake of saving the country. You [Dr Kua] are a small minded fellow who should crawl back into your selfish hole”.

Malaysiakini subscriber comments

ABOVE: “How I wish Tun Mahathir had put Kua Kia Soong in jail forever!”

Dr Kua is told that he “talk shit” and asked to “shut up”. Another Dapster says, “Stop your personal vendetta or just get lost!”

A Malaysiakini reader calling him/herself ‘CQ Muar’ tells Dr Kua to “stop harassing the nonagenarian” while the anonymous ‘anonyxyz’ claims, “KKS is very sick mentally”. Another fella is relieved, “Thank god you are not in DAP”; “Frankly you are rubbish … like dung!”

“Kia Soong, Kia Soong…… You really want the pound of flesh from the Tun. If you are a Christian, may God forgive you,” comes from someone calling him/herself ‘The Mask’.

Confirmed. The DAP evangelistas have become Maharistas alright.

Evangelical Christian’s uncharitable words on Christmas eve

Well, at least I didn’t say Wong Chun Wai’s load of bullshit in my post title above.

They just can’t stop politicking, can they, even in the spirit of the season and Christmas goodwill.

Chun Wai’s J-Star column today is titled ‘The storm over Jerusalem’. It’s full of – as I put it mildly in my headline – ‘uncharitable words’ and not to mention passages of pure propaganda. I’ve listed below Chun Wai’s propaganda contained in his Church of the Negativity talk today.

Firstly, to start off his Christmas sermon, Chun Wai calls US president Donald Trump an “ignorant leader who spews a combination of toxic religious and political plans”. Chun Wai is describing Trump in the same name-calling way he and his newspaper characterize some Muslim fundamentalist activists in Malaysia, i.e. as religiously “toxic”.

Oh ya, he also says Trump is “dangerous” and “irrational”. Well perhaps, but at least Trump is not hypocritical like the two-faced Chun Wai and the forked-tongued DAP evangelistas.

Next, Chun Wai writes that Trump’s advisors are “a group of people who think they are acting on God’s instructions”. Oh, so Chun Wai is here admitting that the White House is under the influence of end-times evangelical Christians. Take note.

His colleague June Wong thinks rural voters are stupid for not embracing Bersih, i.e. election reform and ‘ubah’ voting.

Chun Wai seems to share a similarly poor opinion of that “bunch of evangelical Christian advisers from the rural Bible Belt” who are in the Trump circle of influence to represent “evangelical voters in the US who backed Trump unequivocally in last year’s presidential elections”. The two J-Star Wongs – June and Chun Wai – have an identical view that these rural folks in the Umno heartland and in the American Bible Belt are “ill-informed people” because of who they vote.

Chun Wai then proceeds to accuse Nikki Haley, the American representative to the UN, of threatening, trying to instil fear and finally “outright blackmail” of her fellow UN ambassadors. And he also calls Ms Haley “a spoilt brat” who “sulked following the UN voting”.

Then Chun Wai returns to bashing Trump, saying the American president “now looks like a bully”. Chun Wai the peace-and-love Christian is exuding a lot of negative vibes today with his name-calling and finger-pointing here and there. Not a Christmasy peace and love at all.

For reasons known only to him, Chun Wai’s bashing of the Bible Belters – (#they’re Christians too) – is relentless, quoting a Lutheran pastor in Bethlehem who reportedly made some remark how American “people in the Bible Belt read the Bible in a way that really makes our lives difficult”.

So evidently not everyone reads the Bible in the way approved by Wong Chun Wai and his ilk. Some of the Subang Jaya urbanites prefer the “prosperity gospel” free-wheeling version for sure.

Our takeaway from Chun Wai’s latest column is how, on the eve of Christ the Saviour’s birth anniversary, he prefers instead to discuss how “anger festers and grows”. Chun Wai’s Christmas message is one suffused in anger, what with his torrent of negative comments about the “evangelical voters in the US who backed Trump unequivocally in last year’s presidential elections”.

The description above within quote marks are Chun Wai’s own words copied verbatim. Observe that he admits the evangelicals (read: highly religious Christians) form Trump’s voter base.

Chun Wai the evangelical Christian hypocrite

On the one hand, Chun Wai tells us that “the legendary Church of the Nativity, [is a] site thought to be the birthplace of Jesus Christ”. On the other hand, Chun Wai claims that “the issue isn’t about religion, but land and resources”.

President Trump and his evangelical support base are not concerned about the resources in Israel, the West Bank, Gaza and in East and West Jerusalem. The “issue” for evangelical Christians is wholly religious. Trump created a storm which became an issue at the UN not because the American president is concerned about natural resources in the area, unless there is oil. It is an issue for the Trump supporters because of religion.

According to what Chun Wai said earlier in his column, the “bunch of evangelical Christians” believe Jesus was born in the Church of the Nativity site – in the little town of Bethlehem. Obviously, Christians regard that site as holy. There’s a good reason the location of modern-day Israel is considered as the Holy Land. After all, as Chun Wai recounted in his article today, he himself made a Christian pilgrimage to Jerusalem in 2005.

Chun Wai additionally explains to us that “restricted trips to Jerusalem are allowed for religious purposes“. Meaning, although our Malaysian passport prohibits us from visiting Israel, a special exemption nonetheless is made for Malaysian Christian pilgrims.

So, again – Chun Wai is full of self contradiction. He states that Malaysian Christians are permitted to make a trip to Jerusalem “for religious purposes” – these are Chun Wai’s own words. But in the same breath, he insists too that the issue over Jerusalem is NOT about religion, but about land and resources.

Can he keep to a logical consistency for only one minute? Why is Jerusalem important? Because it is the destination for Christian pilgrims and it is the Holy Land. As Chun Wai informs us, “most of the Biblical sites in the towns of Bethlehem, Jericho and Nazareth, all important names in the Bible, are in predominantly Muslim areas”.

How more holy can you get?!

“All important [place] names in the Bible” are located in the Holy Land over which the three Abrahamic faiths are fighting for control. That’s why it is called the Holy Land, duh. An overwhelmingly R-E-L-I-G-I-O-U-S reason … elementary, my dear Watson.

The Church of the Nativity is built on the site where Jesus was born – in Bethlehem. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is built where Jesus was crucified and resurrected – in Jerusalem. There is no place holier for Christians than God’s ‘Promised Land’ Israel.

As Chun Wai has taken great pains to stress to us, “the Jews do not accept Jesus Christ as the Messiah. In fact, ultra-Orthodox Jews openly dismiss Christ”. The Church of the Nativity and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre are not sacred to Jews who don’t pray in churches. These are holy landmarks for the Christians.

And the Christian pilgrims to Jerusalem are apparently big business. In his article, Chun Wai claims that the pilgrimage provides a livelihood for the Palestinians who – in Chun Wai’s account – “sell Christian religious items”, and work in the support services such as becoming tour guides, caterers, etc.

Now let’s say there is a piece of land in Timbuctoo which is rich in resources. Would Christians and Muslims have fought the Crusades over it? Not! Timbuctoo may be a rich land but Christians and Muslims will not wage holy war over it because it has no religious significance for either faiths.

Why did Christians and Muslims fight to control Jerusalem? It is not a city rich in natural resources. Jerusalem does not have oil or timber or diamonds or rare minerals to be mined for export. The very importance of Jerusalem is its “religious purpose” for Christians, for Jews, and for Muslims. Yet Chun Wai has the cheek to make his blanket declaration “the issue isn’t about religion, but land and resources”. Hidden agenda much?

Malaysians of all faiths should beware the propaganda being peddled by The J-Star and its evangelical Christian CEO when they subtly try to feed readers bullshit.

The following is Chun Wai’s concluding spin. He claims, “For the Palestinians, their plight is not an Islamic or Muslim issue, as widely assumed by many Malaysians, but a case of injustice and violation of human rights, including being stripped of the land belonging to them”.

From the Palestinian perspective, we can grant the “land and resources” factors that Chun Wai is attributing to them. However from the perspective of Malaysia and the rest of the Muslim world, the Palestinian jihad is indeed an Islamic issue. Najib Razak has made it clear that Malaysia stands in solidarity with the Palestinians because Muslims must defend Islam.

Consider a counter example: Like Palestine, Tibet is being occupied by a foreign power. The Han (China Chinese) are steadily taking over the land and growing in population displacing the natives. Like Palestinians, Tibetans are also victims of injustice and having their human rights violated. Do we see the OIC passing resolution after resolution in the UN on Tibet?

Do the Muslim capitals hold rallies and Day of Rage for Buddhist Tibetans? Have Malays ever held mass protests here after Friday prayer for the Tibetan cause?

What a load of bullshit Chun Wai is crapping to try and deny the primary role of religion in the Jerusalem conflict. There’s definitely a hidden agenda. His too earnest denial is just too obvious.

If Jabatan Agama could clarify whose permission to wear tudung

‘Siti Hasmah: My husband forbids me from wearing tudung’ is the most read headline in Malaysiakini at the present moment.

“I don’t wear tudung until today,” the news portal reports Tun M’s wife Siti Hasmah as saying.

“My husband forbids me from wearing tudung. Before one wears tudung, she must ask for her husband’s permission,” she told a press conference at a symposium ‘Siti Hasmah: Wanita pencorak masa depan negara’ in Bukit Damansara.

That’s real interesting, what Siti Hasmah is telling the country.

Going by her logic that a female Muslim requires a husband’s permission first before donning the tudung, what about the millions of unmarried but tudung-wearing schoolgirls in Malaysia then?

BELOW: Mr Yeoh obviously consents

A tale of two First Ladies and their boutique apparel

Malaysiakini columnist Mariam Mokhtar talked today about the use of tudung “as a political tool, to manipulate the masses”.

Several of the Malaysiakini subscribers commenting on her article predictably criticized Rosmah Mansor for not wearing tudung.

Well, the reason could be that the PM’s wife is not herself a politician. After all, as Mariam avers about the tudung, “its use [is] as a political tool, to manipulate the masses”.

But guess which politician often wears tudung for her photo ops?

Hannah Yeoh bertudung litup

Yup, it’s Hannah

Will any tudung-ed woman ever object to strengthening syariah?

Err, “the manipulated masses” who unwittingly became political stage props?

# je suis tudung wearers

‘DAP MP says tudung ban “discriminatory”, offers legal help for court challenge’, according to a Malay Mail report today, referring to a statement by DAP deputy chairman Gobind Singh Deo.

Some hotels don’t want tudung-wearing women to be manning their front desk. DAP is crying foul.

Naturally the DAP would find such a ruling objectionable as the party’s own non-Muslim women leaders often wear tudung voluntarily. It’s called leadership by example. (more…)

“#Thoughts & Prayers” for all those perpetually enraged people

A Subang Jaya municipal council enforcement officer was (pepper?) sprayed in the eyes by the driver/passenger of a Honda City on Tuesday. The car had been clamped for parking outside a restaurant during lunch hour.

The assailants, a man and his wife, are now wanted by police to be investigated for assault. See Nov 8 story ‘Polis buru suami isteri kasari penguat kuasa MPSJ’ in Utusan.

This particular area coming under Subang Jaya jurisdiction has the highest density of evangelical churches. It is also the same area which every now and then is reported in the news for incidents of road rage, i.e. motorists threatening the traffic authorities.

Kung Fu Fighting

The Subang Jaya state assemblywoman cum Selangor Speaker should consider setting up a Peace and Harmony Centre specially to counsel her always angry people with the hair-trigger temper.

Since she herself is so super duper religious, an outreach programme under such a proposed centre to promote spiritual calm and feelings of peace and harmony among her constituents (those who drive) could be coupled with pastoral care.

These temperemental foodies need to be taught and guided that “sabar itu separuh daripada iman”. And that there is the civilized option of paying a fine to unclamp your wheel.
