Yesterday we read the DAPster comments on the FT MCA Youth chief and the Beliawanis MCA chief. Malaysiakini readers confidently comment in any way they like because they feel it is their ‘right’ having plonked money on the portal’s subscription fee.
I know this as an ex-columnist. The DAPsters justify – “we PAID for our right to comment in Malaysiakini“. Invoking their “bought-with-our-money” privilege was the standard retort whenever I protested that their abuses had crossed the line.
Anyway, that’s all water under the bridge now.
Today – to complete the trilogy on DAPster mentality – let’s examine a cover story from The Rocket (To read, double click screenshot at bottom of page).
It is a most aptly titled article — ‘Here comes the future‘.
It is penned by Rocket staffer Chung Hosanna. Hers is a most Christian name, meaning “save, pray”.
“In liturgical context, Hosanna refers to a shout of praise and worship and adoration. It appears in numerous Bible verses including in “Hosanna; blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord” (Mark 11.9), “hosanna in the highest” (Mark 11.10); “hosanna to the Son of David” (Matt 21:9).”[Source: Wiki]
Hosanna accuses BN of practising “political double-speak” and peddling the pipe dream of “1Malaysia to woo moderates”.
BN’s doublespeak? Ha ha ha. Like I’d said in my previous posting about how DAPsters define ‘pretty’, they sure look at things through different eyes.
Chiding the “constant boisterous cheers” of MCA supporters at the Chua Soi Lek vs Lim Guan Eng debate on Feb 18, Hosanna bears witness:
“a defensive [party] president and a loutish crowd of unruly supporters, the signs that MCA is afraid of an increasingly powerful PR which many Chinese Malaysians are now throwing their weight behind”
“A loutish crowd of unruly supporters”? She’s says they’re MCA people. Hahahaha.
Hosanna proceeds to make a further accusation:
“It is perhaps unsurprising that [MCA] a political party of solely Chinese-membership by constitution would seek a Chinese-language debate on issues of Chinese importance.”
Tsk, tsk, tsk. I’m reminded of old cowboy movies where the Red Indian grumbles, “White Man speak with forked tongue”.
In the first place, the debate organizers have clarified that it was Guan Eng who elected for the debate to be in Mandarin.
This info comes from no less than the Asli president himself and corroborated by his organization’s senior vice president, both addressing a press conference. Furthermore, the clarification was reported by pro-opposition portal The Malaysian Insider, not The Star.
Gosh. Imagine the party faithful who take The Rocket as gospel truth.
It gets better. Hosanna scolds the debate organizers for asking participants “to put on the racially tinted lens of a ‘Chinese Malaysian’,” whilst at the same time complaining “there is no denying the racial element inherent in the entire conference”.
Duh. Since Hosanna’s boss is so anti-“racist”, why even bother to take part in the conference (hosting the debate) knowing its inherently “racial element”?
“Is the future contemplated by a Malaysian of Chinese descent that different from that of a Malaysian of another race?”
Ask them back. They should know. After all, hahahaha, every single one of the DAP Parliamentary seats is in a Chinese-majority area.
In the paragraph below, Hosanna sounds like she’s reciting a passage from the Chairman’s Little Malaysian First Book. Using almost identical phrasing to Guan Eng, Hosanna harrumphs:
“The notion that politicians in power would only look after rakyat of the same skin color is outmoded, obsolete, and frankly distasteful to all fair-minded Malaysians. The whole point of democracy is that your rights are equal to mine, whether I’m a poor Chinese girl from Jinjang, or a rich Malay dude from Bangi.”
“Poor Chinese girl from Jinjang”, “rich Malay dude from Bangi” … LOL … her Romeo and Juliet imagery are shades of screenplay from the Yasmin Ahmad wet dream ‘Sepet’.
But I’m gobsmacked by Hosanna’s turn of phrase “frankly distasteful to all fair-minded Malaysians”. How awesome. Other peoples’ ideology are “frankly distasteful”. Just like how to certain DAP politicians, other people are “low class”.
The DAP lofty rhetoric would be quite incomplete without the requisite chest-thumping, innit? Here it is comes, straight from the Hosanna’s mouth:
“My race doesn’t need defending; it is the cause of the poor, the needy, the voiceless, and the weak that needs to be championed. Guan Eng spoke passionately about a two-party system that focuses on policies to aid such people. He reminded the audience of the successful model adopted in Penang by the PR government and highlighted its fiscal prudence. He spoke of removing corruption and restoring integrity.”
This is where I crack up and start rolling on the floor.
Something that DAPsters can’t seem to run away from is their vehement insistence that nobody is allowed to view them as Chinese. Ha ha ha, some more.
“I didn’t care whether the Penang Chief Minister was Chinese. I cared that he was competent. I want a system in Malaysia that doesn’t care what race I am.”
Fine. Some of us think you’re Klingons but in your own Malaysian Malaysia utopia, whatever lah.
Saints and sinners
Below is the Rocket list of the good and the bad from the CSL-LGE debate. It’s a Christian thing: They’re obsessed with sorting out the sheep from the goat.
“Yellow-clad DAP supporters who kept their cool despite being outnumbered and provoked. Although DAP supporters were largely hampered from the audience participation segment, DAP Pahang’s young rising star Chow Yu Hui’s rational and intellectual manner of questioning earned him the moniker ‘DAP’s Jawab Gor’.”
Ha ha ha ha ha …
FYI: I was in the audience that day – outside, as there was no seat reserved for me inside the packed hall – and I can tell you the DAP supporters were urm, not as wholly “rational and intellectual” (ha ha ha) in their manner as she’d like you to believe.
The second ‘Good’ that Hosanna saw in the debate was:
“For once, Lim Guan Eng got a chance to explain the policies of PR to a wider national audience thanks to pay-to-view TV station Astro. While state-run TV stations still censor news and black out pro-opposition coverage, Astro’s bold move is a step forward for media freedom.”
There! I told you the Rocket article was really hilarious. When Hosanna decries “black out pro-opposition coverage”, I thought for a moment she was talking about Selangor TV or Selangor Times.
“MCA supporters distinguished themselves by their jeering, cheering, and incoherent, even irrational audience questions.”
Hosanna states that Jessie Ooi “earned infamy for heckling Guan Eng”. She points one finger at the MCA Selayang coordinator for the sin of heckling but four fingers are pointing back at her own party and its followers.
Hosanna observes that “Netizens have dubbed [Jessie] “Ms Tow Truck”, and “memes ridiculing her have gone viral”.
Precisely! It’s the stock in trade for DAPsters to heap ridicule on their opponents, and sparking the most viciously viral memes is an art the DAPsters have perfected. ‘Here comes the future’ … yes, we can already see how the future would look with DAP in control.
