You know your party has a leeeetel problem when …

… your official website is operated by a 16-year-old girl.

Whereas your archrival is a “streetfighter” with hordes of vicious cyber Red Guards not averse to employing Ah Long tactics.


Above is the Merry Christmas greeting at the MCA website.

(I’ve a little bit more to say about it which you can read in The Mole.)

But let’s have a closer look anyway here (see below).

Aaaw, a pink heart growing on a tree. How sweet.

And pretty flowers in pastel colours growing on the heart. Gee MCA.


Oh look, doesn’t Rudolph the Reindeer just have the cutest teddy bear face, huh?

This festive wishes banner is found in the website of the BN component party that claims to be the ruling coalition’s second biggest with a membership of 1.3 million (er, teenage girls?)

The MCA “holly jolly” greeting is found in the website of a party whose president, at their recent AGM, stridently proclaimed: “We are at the political crossroad of a ‘do-or-die’ battle”.

In fact, Chua Soi Lek even declared: “MCA is ready to go to war.”

Hmm, the MCA website does not reflect his martial mood at all.

Chua’s MCA ready for WAR Free Malaysia Today 2012-12-08 19-47-25

High Noon or X’mas hi tea?

Okay. So who is it again that MCA is gearing up to gunfight in OK Corral?

I see. The streetfighter whose thugs are rampaging all over the countryside.

It is the MCA president himself who said that Lim Guan Eng is a “street fighter”, ya.

Not I say one but Dr Chua’s own description. You can look it up in Star Online or The Star e-paper (screenshot below).

Ingat Guan Eng the streetfighter


Reindeer games

Ah so.

MCA has a website (manned by the Hullo Kitty webmaster) and it has The Star — staffed by a Chinese chauvinist editorial board.

The element of Chinese chauvinism is a necessary job requirement in keeping with the MCA’s reputation as a Chinese chauvinist party.

And MCA is ready for war and prepared to go into battle to win the Chinese votes for BN.

But Houston, we have a problem.

Going by their names, do you reckon that The Star editors possess the requisite Chinese chauvinism to understand and convey the party’s communal struggle?

    I can understand if a newspaper whose employment policy is in favor of certain religion to give space to ybs of the same ilk to promote their agendas.

    What I can’t understand is the glcs. Why should they continue to shower money on media company who failed to promote the multi ethnicity but persistently promoting cultus personality. Are the glcs also being infected?

    funny though – i personally know 3 names from that star list: used to hang out/meet up with them on weekly basis..but that was years ago, before they became what they are now..i would understand their penchant towards supporting the oppo but Star itself, likes young, trendy/hip people or fad & new breed of DAP look it and no longer carries the apek tag that they’re so famous for years ago.

      Tapi rupa wanita muda BN pun tak kurang. Ketua Beliawanis MCA Tee Hooi Ling, Ketua Beliawanis S’gor Jessie Ooi, Bendahari Beliawanis Jessica Lai & kaunsilor Ipoh (Gerakan) Ceylyn Tay

        True that the MCA Beliawanis & Wanita are also attractive looking but are they the Starbucks, Coffee Bean, Telawi, Bangsar Village II, Alexis Bistro, Mont Kiara crowd?

        Y’see, speaking the language is one thing but living the language is another. Moreover, from the look they (the pics you attached) look serious & strict like a headmistress (quoting a Star friend of mine).

        I guess a good publicist, stylist and sociable PR person would help them secure the image they require as oppose to now. Giving courtesy call personally every now and then to the reporters, just to say ‘Hi’ would help as well. Politics is after all about brand imagery as they say behind every strong politicians there’s a stronger stylist/PR team/Publicist and efficient PA standing by!

    “Going by their names, do you reckon that The Star editors possess the requisite Chinese chauvinism to understand and convey the party’s communal struggle?”

    Helen, are you saying that you prefers the Star’s editors to be Chinese. I think that is very racist attitude.

    • 6. Helen Ang  |  December 9, 2012 at 9:56 am

      Why are you talking about race? From just some of their names alone, can you tell if they’re Chinese or Indian?

      They could well be Portuguese or from Nebraska or Alabama in the Bible Belt.

    sorry this is off topic, but how come you’re not writing on the khalwat case involving the 4 non Muslims ?

    When the opponent bullied your party then your party has a problem. The bigger problem is when your coalition partner think your party is impotent. The biggest problem is when your coalition partner think your party IS the problem.

    MCA’s reaction to hudud is detrimental to UMNO.

    • 10. Helen Ang  |  December 9, 2012 at 3:23 pm

      MCA should carefully weigh the balance of things:

      (1) It is using the fear of Islamic state and hudud to try to win back some of the Chinese vote

      (2) In doing so and through the methods that it is using, MCA might lose some of the Malay vote that has been given the party since the election in 1952, 1955, 1959 and the rest of the GE series

      How far can MCA succeed in (1) and to what extent does it stand to lose in terms of voters with (2)?

      To arrive at the calculated risk, MCA must assess the mood and mentality of the Chinese and the Malay voters respectively.

      As I’ve mentioned before, the Chinese electorate is so hardened that even a hantaran of 7 dulang hati nyamuk & 7 tempayan air mata anak dara Puteri Umno will not be able to placate or move them.

      An alternative method is for MCA to defend Islam from the encroachment of the evangelical Christians which

      (1) would alienate the Christian community and the English-speaking community

      (2) might win the party some Malay support

      Regarding (1), both communities have already rejected MCA anyway. Even its own Christian leaders such as Jimmy Chua Jui Meng have deserted the party and Lee Hwa Beng is seen hobnobbing with the DAP evangelists, so there is really nothing much (votes) left to lose among these people.

      To rub salt into the wound, the MCA’s own Christian paper is stabbing the party in the back.

      Regarding (2), MCA must fight to live another day. If it loses Malay and Indian vote in addition to the Chinese vote it had already lost in 2008 and will further lose in 2013, then MCA is done for.

      MCA should be completely honest in evaluating the demography of the seats that it is currently holding and acknowledge that it won these seats – most certainly – NOT on the back of Chinese electors.
