This posting is a continuation of The ‘chauvinist’ label, Chinese self-destructiveness & changing dynamics.
I had written in Part I that it is a big mistake for Malays to label DAP a ‘Chinese chauvinist’ party because DAP is not controlled by those exhibiting traits of Chineseness.
Instead the Christian evangelical faction who have got a strangehold on the party were educated in missionary schools, employ the White Man political vocabulary and use the loony left bully pulpit. They clearly fail the junzi test.
” … a Chinese ideal. A gentleman in Chinese ideal, the junzi (君子) is someone who is always composed and possessed of himself and doesn’t lose his temper and doesn’t lose his tongue.”
— Lee Kuan Yew
in Sept 2010 interview with NYT & IHT
Look at how the DAP paramount leader loses his tongue.
2:34 — “Ini Utusan Malaysia macam Shit Bet tau, macam Mossad. Dia bertindakan macam Shin Bet dan Mossad nak bunuh, nak fitnah, nak bunuh sifat dan watak seseorang tanpa bukti. Ini Shit Bet Malaysia ini, Mossad Malaysia ini, Utusan-Shin Bet ataupun Utusan-Mossad ini nak menyatakan fitnah dan penipuan yang tidak berasas.”
4:28 — “Tapi untuk Utusan Malaysia cuba kaitkan pembunuhan zalim dengan isu politik, saya rasa amat tidak bermoral sekali, dan seperti yang saya sebut tadi nak bunuh sifat dan watak seseorang tak lain seperti Shin Bet dan Mossad Israel nak bunuh orang Palestin. So sekarang Utusan Malaysia macam Shin Bet dan Mossad menggunakan isu-isu yang tidak berasas untuk cuba bunuh watak dan sifat seseorang.”
6:20 — Itu sebab apa yang dinyatakan oleh Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz memang benar. Ini Utusan Malaysia memang jahat lah, saya rasa lebih teruk daripada itu macam Shin Bet dan Mossad Israel nak bunuh orang saja. … Dan saya rasa ini sekarang dimainkan oleh Utusan Malaysia, bukan saja jahat tetapi gunakan taktik Shin Bet dan Mossad Israel untuk timbulkan perasaan benci di antara rakyat Malaysia. Bahaya betul Utusan Malaysia.”
And how he loses his composure — “the pro-Umno ferocious beasts”, “these ferocious pro-Umno beasts”, “the pro-Umno beasts”, “cruelly dragging in my young 16 year old son”, “maligned in such a beastly and cruel fashion publicly” all in one breath.
The above rant against the “ferocious beasts” was 3 months ago (Oct 2010).
In his recent New Year message, Lim Guan Eng hearkened to his earlier leitmotif of ‘beastliness’:
“There is confidence that Penang can defeat the extremists who appeal to beastly emotions and overcome the racists who play up to our worst fears …”
Again he freely scolds other people “racists”. It’s hard to recognize in Guan Eng any of the self-possession so vital in a Chinese gentleman as described by successful Singapore’s founding father.
And DAP hardly reflects Chinese aspirations either.
When has DAP 2.0 defended the Chinese? For example, the party exhibited a deafening and total silence with regard to the tragic case of Tan Yi Min.
In comparison, Chua Soi Lek handled his sex video scandal with much more elan. The tape first surfaced 5 years ago but opposition fanboys still can’t help dwelling on the MCA president’s “thick and shameless head” even after all this time.
Chua could be talking about the Hadron Collider, the Higgs Boson or NASA’s Kepler mission discovering a three-planet system orbiting the KOI-961 star but his detractors adamantly refuse to stop carping on his 2007 adultery.
(My great granddad had two wives. What about yours?) Can we please move on or I suggest that the Firster stone throwers get their own sex life instead of obsessing about Chua Soi Lek’s morals.
But of course the Christians like to wear their “righteousness” like a crusader’s cape.
A posting several days ago on the ‘Lives-for-God’ state assemblywoman Hannah Yeoh prompted a Yeopie admirer to comment in my blog.
From the previous abusive comments made by this livid reader, I’m deducing that he’s a Malay guy.
I had allowed his comment, “nyonya… pepet hang sama busuk macam hati hang. You know it” to pass on Jan 10 but I draw the line at his “fak your mom” on Jan 14.
This biadab person was incensed at my posting about how ‘Selangorku’ has a RM300 million budget and the state’s Pakatan Aduns were each given an RM1 million allocation last year by the Menteri Besar.
Hannah, flush with funds, can afford to hire a political secretary, 4 personal assistants and any number of interns.
It’s no wonder then that the personality cult in DAP – Hannah has 39,000 Twitter followers – flourishes with all these ‘assistants’ canvassing the public.
Guan Eng has a staff of 28 in his Chief Minister’s Office, many of them press secretaries and others in his personal media unit. Which Umno Menteri Besar has dozens of press secs, you tell me. Which Umno Adun has half a dozen personal assistants, you tell me.
Guan Eng’s gang comprises pressmen who used to work in the Chinese papers. You can imagine how Chinese voters might be influenced.
The reason pro-opposition provocateurs have been emboldened in cyberspace is due to the support they’re getting from PAS and PKR Malays.
One such case in point is the ‘fak your mom’ commentator. The pro-establishment Malay bloggers have written more comprehensively on this theme of the changing dynamics whereby DAP is emboldened because of the backing they’re getting from their PAS-PKR Malay allies.
If the DAP politicians have not been getting Malay cheerleaders (e.g. Teo Nie Ching in her selendang and surau forays), the boldness to provoke would not have reached our present kurang ajar level.
Note that I consider certain pro-Umno elements such as Shah Alam’s cow head protestors to be kurang ajar too. This syndrome afflicts both sides but Perkasa members have not said “fak your mom” to me despite their police report.
The double standards are astounding. Opposition supporters feel that just because this blog allows freedom of speech, it provides a licence for them to comment thus on my family.
On the other hand, their own precious leaders are famous for issuing gag orders, harassing critics (Nga Kor Ming sues blogger for RM10 million), character assassination (Guan Eng’s pol-sec Ng Wei Aik baits Lim Boo Chang) and now blocking Twitter.

Saya penyokong 100% BN (dulu) zaman TM. Tapi lepas dapat PM kaki tido, saya sokong mereka yg buat kerja.
Saya tak suka siapa pun buat komen melampau2, menghina atau mencarut. Tak kiralah dari BN or PR. Dia org ni sama saja. Org yg boleh fikir secara matang, adalah org yg sepatutnya berjaya.
Helen, teruskan lagi. Jgn saja hentam DAP/PKR… tolong hentam BN juga. Asalkan ianya ada fakta dan membawa kebaikkan pada org biasa (majoriti rakyat Msia).
Have a nice day.
betul tu bzz,
bagi saya negara perlukan pembangkang yang kuat macam PR sekarang untuk check n balance, tapi bukan dengan cara cerita cerita fitnah dan isu perkauman yang dimainkan utk rebut undi…jgn sampai keamanan negara tergugat…andai kata melayu sama melayu bergaduh pon jgn ingat kaum lain boleh selamat..mungkin ini nasihat tersirat datuk nallakarupan kot hehe..harap dijauhi
walau apa pon isu yang nak dimainkan saya tidak akan setuju sama sekali kalau Islam diperkotakkatikkan dan hak bumi digugat..30% ja bukan banyak pon..lagi 70% rebutla nak rebut macam mana cara pon
“Fear no evil” blog , pun sekarang block othesr Non pro PR comments , seem to be trend.Wonder why ?. May be he frear the truth.
Kecik telur, riuh sekampung . INI lah Ayam sabung PRO PKR , can dish out, but cannot take it
I think the ‘Mind no evil’ blog is treading a difficult terrain.
Let’s say a reader leaves a comment saying that politician Datuk X is receiving payment from Company Y to close one eye or to facilitate activity Z. I would hesitate to allow the comment to be published because we bloggers are just sitting at the computer screen & have no means to fact-check the allegations.
This is an area we (independent bloggers) have to be very careful in as we cannot afford to be sued for defamation. (Also the reason why I believe DAP is more than willing to resort to intimidation, i.e. Nga Kor Ming suing the blogger for RM10 million over the tailor tender posting).
For all the bad things that some of us say about Dr M, I don’t recall that he ever sued a small fry (no offence meant to the blogger being sued by NKM).
Then there’s the consideration of the big picture & what we want our blogs to achieve. Mine is not a corruption-busting blog.
I have a reading habit, am practised in writing & want to share some ideas or broach a different way of looking at particular issues/topics.
But let’s cut Arshad some slack. As it is, he’s braver & more plain-spoken than most other bloggers.
(My great granddad had two wives. What about yours?)
Your great granddad had 2,3,or4 wives is your family problem,
but for Chua Soi Lek to had immoral activities is a great problem for the MCA and Malaysian Chinese. How can Chinese MCA has an immoral person as their leader is incomprehensible politically and morally. How you explain to your grandchild and great grandchild that this person need to be elected to power while it is publicly known to have immoral character.
I don’t consider my great granddad (GGD) having had 2 wives a “problem”. Why should you impose your morality on my family?
FYI: Just for the rest of the (Malay) readers’ knowledge, GGD was a man of his times. My grandma was one of his 8 daughters by his first wife — there may have been more but when I was a child, I was only acquainted with 4th-8th grand aunt (the ones older to my grandma who was No.3/3rd daughter had already passed away).
Since his first wife only gave him daughters — 8 girls, no boys — GGD, a patriarchal-minded man of his times, took a second wife who duly produced the much desired son. I understand the Chinese custom of wanting male heirs to carry on the family name as prompting GGD’s action & do not blame him for following tradition.
And you still haven’t explained how you are more “keturunan Cina tulen” than others.
You also claim that Chua Soi Lek’s “immoral activities” is “a great problem” for the MCA and Malaysian Chinese. If CSL was such a great problem for the party as you say, then how do you explain his popular win to be reinstated?
At least CSL won the majority votes from delegates in his party election unlike PKR’s Anugerah Tuhan who is de facto leader unelected and Lim Guan Eng who’s exceeded his term as sec-gen also UNELECTED.
The DAP party election was supposed to be held in 2008 but did not take place. The next DAP election would have been held August this year but it’s been announced that it’ll be postponed … again … and hence leaving LGE in his post as sec-gen for the 4th term contravening his own party constitution which stipulates a max of 3 terms.
So if Pakatan takes over Putrajaya, you think they might decide to postpone the general election too?
As to your Q. “How you explain to your grandchild and great grandchild that this person need to be elected to power while it is publicly known to have immoral character?”, my answer is that while you feel CSL is immoral for his adultery, I have bigger issues with LGE’s public behaviour than CSL’s private bedroom romp.
apa pandangan peribadi anda berkenaan CSL dan ahli MCA yang masih memilih CSL sebagai presiden…adakah kaum cina tidak kisah dengan skandal seks CSL atau itu bukan dianggap masalah moral untuk kaum cina?
Sukar saya nak telaah kerana saya tak pernah jadi ahli MCA ataupun mana-mana parti politik.– Helen
Dear Helen Ang ,I am sorry if my comment annoyed you…
you say: “I don’t consider my great granddad (GGD) having had 2 wives a “problem”. Why should you impose your morality on my family?”
What I mean when I said, “your family problem”, [not “a problem”]…
“Family problem” is a typical chinese way of saying that the matter is a ‘Trivial or unimportant to the other parties” uninteresting matter compared to what the persons were debating at. I guess you must be educated in English or Malay school…or not well versed at colloquial mandarin.
NO! I did not try to imposed “Morality” on anyone, for I myself is not really good morally inside!LOL…
You say:”And you still haven’t explained how you are more “keturunan Cina tulen” than others. ”
.When I said I a “keturunan cina tulin”, I am not accusing others as “inferior” or less chinese…I only mean that I write from a typical ordinary bred Malaysian chinese..who eats porks, burned josstick and cursing dirty words and cracks dirty jokes in few chinese dialects…maybe I should write “keturunan cina biasa”, that will sound less cocky and draw less contempt.
you say”You also claim that Chua Soi Lek’s “immoral activities” is “a great problem” for the MCA and Malaysian Chinese. If CSL was such a great problem for the party as you say, then how do you explain his popular win to be reinstated?”
CSL indeed a big cursed for Malasian Chinese, HIstorically and politically , a corrupt and immoral person cannot be elected to high office. When a leader is a known immoral or corrupt…then the members also….immoral and corrupt inclined….the means justified the ends!!!!!!!
His “popular win to be reinstated” was indeed by “MCA members”! Not by Malaysian chinese!!!! When MCA majority members elected an immoral or corrupt leader, then , its begin of the end!!! Then they will also agreed to illegal gambling, booze, prostitution,and what ever illegal activities , as long as it make money…
You say”…my answer is that while you feel CSL is immoral for his adultery, I have bigger issues with LGE’s public behaviour than CSL’s private bedroom romp. ”
I am apolitical…CSL immoral is a bane to Malaysian Chinase future…
AS for LGE, he has his own supporters….what I think and what you THINK…are not important….just wait and see what will happen in pru13…my hot air and your hot air won’t change the future as we are not important….
NO! I am not trying to lecture you how to be a good writer…. I am sorry if my writing annoyed you….but ,please….be a calmer person, be an analytical writer, dont bring family history into a MAJOR national leaders debates…nobody interested in them,…and read and reread your comment before you post it, Hey…this is just a debate…no need to be rush….
