There is no decency threshold that the DAP Dynasty will hesitate to cross. With Lim Guan Eng and his father, everything is political. Even sliced bread.
Most recently, Kit Siang tweeted “6yr William Yau’s tragic death – apart from Umno/BN Ministers/leaders, Msia just not safe even 4children like William!” (see here)
The DAP Mursyidul Am additionally linked the William tweet to an article in his blog titled ’75-Day Countdown to 13GE – Will UMNO/BN leaders who really believe that BN will regain two-thirds majority in 13GE stand up?’
Khairy Jamaluddin responded in his Facebook:
“Insiden tragis ini pun nak dikaitkan dengan politik. What kind of leader is this? Daripada kita kerjasama menjaga keselamatan kanak-kanak, ada yang tak melepas peluang untuk berpolitik.
“Show some class, please!”
The barb from the Umno Youth chief – “Show some class, please!” – should most certainly be placed in the context of the DAP evangelical faction who are always labeling other people “low class”.
“Be reasonable”, can or not?
My favourite tweeter Tan Keng Liang has replied to Kit Siang (screenshot below):
The Kedah Gerakan Youth chief aptly observed that being “reasonable” is a trait sorely lacking among the Lim coterie and their hardcore supporters.
Khairy had also asked what kind of leadership is Lim Sr providing. Good question. One would ask the same of Lim Jr.
“What kind of leader is this?”
The first thing Guan Eng did upon the news of the death of a DAP aide in custody was to scream murder.
There have subsequently been an inquest and an RCI but before all these proceedings were conducted, Guan Eng beat the gun by declaring,
“Teoh Beng Hock had been cruelly murdered. I want to remind those responsible that we will not forget you because there is no forgiveness for you.”
(For the record and to preempt the DAP hatchet men, I do not believe that Beng Hock committed suicide).
Even the young man’s last rites was turned into a media circus. The DAP bigwigs standing in the front row during the traditional Chinese ceremony for the departed led scores of cameramen to clamber all over Beng Hock’s funeral altar in order to snap their photos.
Sedition, again and again and again
For his TBH incitement, Guan Eng was investigated by police for sedition. The police reports lodged against the DAP sec-gen for making allegedly seditious remarks must be stacked ceiling high by now.
Just as Kit Siang is unable to get out of his habit of politicizing every single thing, his son too is unable to stop his habit of incitement — be it on Deepavali, Wesak, Hari Raya, Christmas or Thaipusam.
Tucked into his Jan 26 festival greeting is this message:
“For this reason the Penang state government is confident that outside threats to disrupt this mutual respect and destroy racial harmony with vile and abhorrent acts like burning Bibles will certainly fail.” (See Dr Novandri’s blog that takes Guan Eng to task for this)
It’s rich (as in Penang property developer wealthy) for Guan Eng to lecture about disrupting “mutual respect and destroy[ing] racial harmony”.
Victims of the DAP trolls
Novandri Hasan Basri, by the way, is the Chief Minister’s arch nemesis. This Umno man cum blogger ranks among the best sources of critical info if you want to know what goes on in the seedy underbelly of Penang 2.0.
For his perseverance, Dr Novandri is mercilessly trolled by the Guan Eng devotees — online hatchet men quick to wield their pickaxes whenever a hair on the Tokong’s Brylcreemed head is touched. And the irony is that some of the Guan Eng cultist bloggers are living abroad whereas Dr Novandri is a Penangite.
As I’ve mentioned in an earlier posting, Warta Jerusubang only allowed to be published the attacks made on Umno bloggers by Kit Siang, Guan Eng and Tony Pua related to the rumours about the Chief Minister’s son.
And the MCA-owned newspaper, true to its confirmed bias, did not even interview a single one of the Malay bloggers in Penang for their side of the story to ensure a balanced coverage. The Star – a mainstream media with a reach of several millions – provided space only for the DAP camp to vent and vilify the Umno Penang bloggers.
What propels Kit Siang and Guan Eng?
Kit Siang is synonymous with the Rocket brand and given his stature in the DAP, it is understandable that he has loyal followers among the older generation who are protective of him.
As for Guan Eng, the calibre of his following can be measured by how they mindlessly chant the mantra “he is a hero who went to jail for the sake of a Malay girl“.
If you’re wondering how come the general Chinese public is unable to come to its senses regarding Guan Eng, look no further than the best circulation brain washing machine.
A couple of days ago, Chua Soi Lek made the legitimate criticism that Guan Eng is a “fire starter”. All the media, including pro-opposition Malaysiakini, carried the story. With the strange exception of The Star.
From the monitoring carried out by this blog, and from Dr Chua’s own peeved outburst – (screenshot) tweet above by The Star‘s ex-NUJ chairman – it can be seen that he is deliberately sidelined by Star reporters. Never mind that Dr Chua is the president of the party that is the owner of their paper.
To understand a major contributing factor as to why the Chinese community remain blind followers of the Lim personality cult, those in charge of the BN election machinery must seriously look into what’s really going on in The Star.
