Pada 1hb April, saya telah memblog bahawa cogankata kempen pilihanraya yang tertera di laman sesawang rasmi MCA tidak ditulis dalam bahasa kebangsaan (lihat screenshot, bawah).
Langit mana dijunjung MCA?
Dua hari kemudian pada 3hb April, saya bertanya MCA ini berpijak di bumi Beijing ke ataupun di Chennai atau London?
Adakah ia begitu sukar sekali bagi pengendali laman untuk memperbetulkan sebuah grafik? Kakitangan media MCA bukannya seorang dua. Berdozen-dozen petugas dalam jabatan perhubungan parti tersebut di Wisma MCA.
Hari ini 8hb April dan poster panda MCA itu sudah terpampang lebih seminggu.
Masih lagi penggunaan bahasa kebangsaan sengaja diabaikan oleh MCA.
Kekadang saya pun pelik lah dengan perangai orang MCA ini.

Bukan MCA yang bengong … UMNO dan BN tu yang dah hilang maruah. Geram!
BN perlu bertanya apa MCA ingat Negara mana dia berada sekarang.
Rukunegara ….. keluhuran perlembagaan….. kesopanan dan kesusilaan…..
Maka tidak pelik langsung di majlis Konsul Malaysia di Shanghai baru-baru ini majoriti pelajar Malaysia yang hadir langsung tidak boleh bertutur dalam Bahasa Malaysia mahupun Bahasa Inggeris.
Mungkinkah boleh bertutur dalam Bahasa Kebangsaan dijadikan syarat untuk mendapat kerakyatan dan memohon Paspot Malaysia? Rakyat jenis apa yang langsung tidak boleh berinteraksi dengan orang lain di Malaysia?
“majoriti pelajar Malaysia yang hadir langsung tidak boleh bertutur dalam Bahasa Malaysia mahupun Bahasa Inggeris”
Really? That’s horrible. And they call themselves Malaysians? How shameful!
kenapa nak salahkan UMNO pulak? MCA has its own system, leadership, rules, values, virtues, whatsoever. Pasal bahasa dalam banner pun nak harapkan UMNO dan BN buat keputusan? Ini sudah parah. totally disagree with you, sayangmalaysia.
semua salah UMNO :-), susahlah ini macam. sebab itu MCA ada president, ketua2 bahagian etc. kerja dan tanggungjawab sudah dibahagikan, takkan UMNO nak kena jaga bontot MCA lagi?
Chinese can’t speak Malay, you know who’s fault? Bila nak buat sekolah kebangsaan, semua nak sekolah aliran Cina. Salahkan MCA laaa naik lemak sangat. If they care about unity, they won’t support vernacular. Languanges can be taught during school. Make it compulsory, BM, English, Mandarin, Tamil to all students.
Macam kat Europe tu, ramai yang bukan setakat dwi-bahasa tapi 3 bahasa. Okey malas nak type lagi. Bye.
A very incompetent MCA or a sign of half hearted MCA in battle.
Maybe none of them reading your blog
Maybe readers can help by tweeting up to the BN leaders
The chinese are in position to bargain, who can imagine Najib meeting with the notorious Dong Zong when the self righteous syiok sendiri DAPsters do not even acknowledge Hindraf or Perkasa as humans.
But the DAPster are aiming for the kill, which will be dream as they fail to understand the Malay landscape in Malaysia, surprisingly MCA also blind as DAP.
Mungkin MCA sudah berasakan bahawa kekuatannya telah kembali. Atau dengan tidak meng’align’ dirinya dengan UMNO atau NGO-NGO Melayu yang lain, mereka berharap sokongan kaum Tionghua akan kembali kepada mereka.
UMNO sudah menjadi paksi kejahatan kepada sahabat-sahabat dalam BN sendiri. Masing-masing cuba untuk tidak menunjukkan mereka bersama UMNO dengan cara yang halus.
Now MCA is begging for votes.
There are three things that deserve no mercy: hypocrisy, fraud and tyranny – Theologian, Frederick William Robertson (1816-1853).
UMPORNO & Barisan Pengsonglap Harta Nasional ministers are saturated with it, of their entire being.

betapa ironisnya ali karim, 3 faktor yang saudara ujarkan sememangnya ada pada PR.
Maka, amatlah wajar bagi kami pengundi menolak mereka bukan?
Traits deserving no mercy that’s present in LGE – check, check & check… Mate…
The Senior Chua was reported to decline BN request for him to battle it out with the Senior Lim at Gelang Patah.
Hmmm…no bola, ke this MCA fella?
MCA has the best of the deal: saved from being irrelevant due to Malay voters choosing them simply due to alliance with UMNO AND let UMNO does its job of satisfying the ever dissatisfiied chinese.
But the real problem is the “malu alah” attitude of UMNO leaders. I have been told by a friend in JPN (Pendaftaran Negara) how disilliusioned there are as the strict criteria of citizenship (such as ability to speak malay proficiently) is waived by the people in power just to pacify groups of people who REFUSE to accept that they should try learning Malay in order to get citizenship.
I am not able to verify this. But i am not surprised.
What is it with UMNO that it behaves like a struggling minority while in reality it is the party in power. Najib maybe popular but many Malays not happy seeing him with Dong Zong just before the election.
The refusal of UMNO to act while insulted angers the malays. Only that UMNO is lucky as the other choices (PAS and PKR) are not “palatable”.
Why cant UMNO acts on “perempuan jalang” who draped herself with UMNO flag. Is that an insult? That was a question by an UMNO member in Ampang. Yup. He said the word “jalang”.
MCA has the best of the deal: saved from being irrelevant due to Malay voters choosing them simply due to alliance with UMNO AND let UMNO does its job of satisfying the ever dissatisfiied chinese.
re: “groups of people who REFUSE to accept that they should try learning Malay in order to get citizenship”
But who are these groups? We’re not talking 1958 here.
re: “Why cant UMNO acts on “perempuan jalang” who draped herself with UMNO flag.”
BN flag. The Umno flag has Sang Saka background. Umno won’t act b’cos the perempuan is the MCA de facto mascot made a star by The Star.
Sorry for the error. It is the BN flag. Refusal to act I believe is a crime itself.
So for Malays, stop voting MCA as MCA makes itself “redundant”.
To act under which law?
If public indecency, then her state of dress or undress is a matter of interpretation.
He boyfriend says that she is wearing a tube. Can what he says be disproved? (Fotoforensics CSI?)
Otherwise just looking with the naked eye, it’s possible that she’s not wearing anything. But it’s equally possible that she’s wearing a tube.
I also asked, what if it was the DAP flag instead of the BN flag?
It terms of marketing gimmick, I think Vivian’s stunt is effective. One up for the DAP camp. Remember to thank The Star for making her a celebrity.
‘to act under which law?”
Using the force of law is not the issue. Definitely, a provocative act merits action from the authority.
What is the whole point of paying the salary of AG if say its office is unable to quote one law with regards to insulting attitude of tis lady.
The more relevant question is whether Najib govt wants to act. Refusal to act is tantamount to encouraging this nasty behaviour.
re: “Refusal to act is tantamount to encouraging this nasty behaviour.”
Both sides of the political divide have gotten away with a lot of nasty behaviour already wor.
Saya kurang bersetuju jika kita memperbesarkan ‘lawatan sambil belajat’ LKS ke Gelang Patah. Sewajarnya Gelang ditandingi oleh MCA Gelang Patah sendiri. Idea utk Ghani ke Gelang Patah juga tidak bijak. Tindakan CSL untuk tidak kemaruk menyambut LKS adalah bijak.
yup. i could not agree more. Why must Ghani othman contest against Kit siang.
Let MCA battle DAP. It is MCA’s call. Let Chinese voters in Gelang patah decide the direction of their community. They cant have cake and eat it too.
Not really a big deal If I were to be Najib. Should MCA lose in Gelang Patah, I can then say as my govt is rejected by the chinese community, then there should not be Chinese Ministers
re: “then there should not be Chinese Ministers”
The Chinese have reached a point where we (I include myself) really DON’T care whether there is any Chinese Minister or no.
Having Ng Yen Yen as Tourism Minister, Liow Tiong Lai as Health Minister, Kong Cho Ha as Transport Minister and Chor Chee Heung as Housing and Local Government Minister makes absolutely no difference to us.
As a member of the 10 percent, I say that we don’t like these people.
You you asked the 90 percent, you’ll find that they despise those people who are the Chinese Cabinet Ministers.
So what you say about the Chinese having no representation in Cabinet doesn’t cut any ice anymore.
Precisely. What you said really explain how vast majority of Malays perceive chinese (no offense).
And i hope it will make things easier for all of us. No need to entertain mind boggling complaints by chinese anymore. I dare not imagine how Najib will feel once he is rejected by chinese again this coming election.
Rejected by the Chinese, najib will have to face angry Malays who sweetly say “padan muka” to him for mindless pandering to the community that rejects him (because he represents Malay in power).
The present leaders of the MCA must realise that after decades of treating the only credible political machine of the Malaysian Chinese as a pension fund for monopolies, lands etc. it has come to the stage that they are now hard-pressed into a corner to perform – unfortunately, like Caesar’s wife beyond reproach !
Was the slogan slip-out a diplomatic error ?
the party is already irrelevant. nowadays it acts more like a business conglomerate than as a political party. maybe they are preparing for life post GE13 considering the fact that come polling day, they will be sent packing by the voters. not a bad career move. at least after GE13, they can still sit down together amongst themselves and say “at least we still have the money”.
re: “come polling day, they will be sent packing by the voters”
Without the shadow of a doubt.
and without a doubt, after voters sent the last defender of Chinese education packing, Chinese education will be fair game for the Ultras and the Malaysian First Gang. come to think of it, the people enabling the Ultras and the Malaysian First Gang to come after Chinese education are the Chinese themselves. now that is irony.
re: “the people enabling the Ultras and the Malaysian First Gang to come after Chinese education are the Chinese themselves” …
… working in The Star.
so this is what the Chinese are going to vote for in GE13
the Chinese voting for the DAP know nothing of all this ?
Seriously, they don’t care. Their own mother could tell them that she saw with her very own eyes how some DAP pollie behaves like a samseng towards a senior citizen, and these Dapsters would berate their mother saying she has been bought over by the MCA.
The Chinese community is in the throes of Amanat Hadi Tokong.
It’s reached a stage where nothing, absolutely nothing – no amount of reasoning – is able penetrate through to the DAP followers. How else do you think the party has managed to garner 90 percent Chinese support if not for the total mind control?
seriously, do you think the Chinese even care about Chinese education nowadays ? if they do not even care about Chinese education, why are they constantly asking the government to treat Chinese education in a fair manner ?
Chinese education will always be close to the heart of the Chinese community and the number one priority.
It’s just that at the moment, their hatred for Umno is too blinding.
They cannot see the threat to the existence of vernacular schools coming from the Umno right wing or the Malay ultras, and to make a connection of this to the escalating and continued DAP provocation in cause and effect.
If they are informed, they will simply dismiss the info as a cheap ploy to persuade them to vote MCA. To them, the scenario is about as believable as a repeat of May 13 which they also dismiss as another piece of scaremongering by the BN.
They are totally unaware of the knee-jerk reaction from the Malays. Whenever a Dapster meragam, the almost automatic response among some Malays is to fingerpoint the culprit as the product of the Chinese school system.
Only one percent of Utusan readers are Chinese. The rest of the 99 percent of Chinese have very little, if any exposure at all, to the Malay milieu and much less to delve into the Malay psyche.
Added to their taksub kepada DAP and their belief that their Tokongs and Ladies of Jerusubang are maksum, they simply cannot fathom what’s going on in the other side.
I would like to hear your opinion. what will happen to Chinese education post GE13 in the event that we have a Malay government and a Chinese led opposition ? we know PM is discussing with DZ but seriously do you think the government will recognize the Unified Exam Cert after GE13 ?
I don’t think there’s any immediate threat to the existence of Chinese schools.
I don’t think either that an Umno government will threaten to close down Chinese schools or to interfere in their running.
I think that Najib is China and Chinese language friendly and so far Muhyiddin as Education Minister has not been hostile (inasmuch as I can remember).
However, I don’t think that Umno can veer from its containment policy, i.e. since 1970, no new Chinese schools have been allowed to open (i.e. the numbers are static).
Since the absolute number of Chinese kids are increasing and the intake is increasing too, plus there is an intake of non-Chinese to SRJK(C), there will be pressure on a rickety system which is unable to cope with the exploding ‘bodycount’.
Too much and high demand, too little supply (too few classrooms, too few new teachers trained for these schools) equals implosion.
re: “the government will recognize the Unified Exam Cert” (?)
I hope so. Kata mesti dikota. The Suqiu experience shouldn’t be repeated.
re: “no new Chinese schools have been allowed to open”
in the context of
Click here for table 1971-78 and here for 1980-2004.
In 1971, there were 413,270 pupils in Chinese schools.
In 1981, there were 581,600.
Major, major jump in the span of 10 years.
In 1977, there were 493,809 pupils.
In 1997, there were 601,891.
Note the rapid increase between 1971 (one year into NEP) and 1977, but the stabilization between 1981 and 1997.
In 2004, the enrolment was 646,965. The reason for the impeded growth in numbers over the last 10 years is the limitation of physical infrastructure.
In 1970 there were 1,346 SRJK(C)s
in 1980 – 1,312 Chinese schools
in 1990 – 1,290 Chinese schools
in 2000 – 1,284 Chinese schools
in 2004 – 1,287 Chinese schools
As a comparison the enrolment was 413,270 pupils in 1971 and 646,965 pupils in 2004.
one more question before I go. how will the Malaysian First Gang react in the event that the government recognizes the Unified Exam Cert ? in public and private.
Just my guess.
In public, no ripple at all.
In private, I really don’t want to try to enter their minds. Yucks.
Sebenarnya MCA sendiri sudah lama menampakan tiada kejujoran dalam perjuanganya dalam bersama Barisan Nasional, dan pada hakikatnya mereka hanya ingin bersama dan menempel diri sekiranya UMNO masih kuat dan bepengaroh bagi kepentingan yang mereka sahaja ketahwai, tetapi jika belaku sebaliknya parti-parti seperti MCA , MIC , dan Gerakan tidak akan teragak-agak meninggalkan Barisan National.
Bagi orang Melayu, gelagat parti-parti komponen seperti MCA, MIC, dan Gerakan ini sidah lama mereka sedari, tetapi mereka masih lagi berpegang kapada semagat perpaduan yang diterajuai olih UMNO sebab itulah di kawasan seperti (tengaroh, Johor) dimana taboran pengundi 89% Melayu, 9% Cina dan 2% India, calon MIC bolih menanag dengan bergaya pada PRU 12, tetapi samapai bila ?
Melayu bukan bodoh tetapi berpegang kapada semagat yang telah dijalin dan akor kapada kehendak pimpinan. Sebab itulah pimpinan tertinggi MCA, MIC dan Gerakan akan menuntut kerusi “selamat” di kawasan yang taboran pengundi yang majoritynya Melayu.
DUN Skudai selama ini diwakili Gerakan sehinga PRU 12, berpindah tangan kapada DAP kerana undi protes orang Melayu kerana wakil Gerakan begitu sombong dan angkoh kerana menjangka ia bolih menang dengan undi Cina sahaja, bedasarkan kempen mereka ketamam-taman, mereka yang melangkuai rumah-rumah Melayu dan hanya berkunjung kerumah kaum Cina bagi mengedarkan “hand bill” pilihan raya ketika itu, adalah satu contoh kalau gagal menerima hakikat dan berpijak dibumi yang nyata.
Melayu memerhati tetapi tidak bersuara
Jika MCA lakukan kesilapan ini atas keperluan strategi memenangi hati Cina pun dah kira cukup bagus. Masaalah MCA ini tiada strategi pun. Dia buat apa pun ala kadar sahaja.
There is no mystery to Chinese education and its language. During colonial times, the curriculum was Chinese history, geography, hygiene etc. taught by teachers imported from China with books from the Commercial Press, Shanghai.
Since Merdeka, the curriculum is based on Malaysia and its subjects which are taught in Mandarin.
In other words, Malaysian subjects are only taught in the Mandarin language nowadays. The mystery is why it took over 55 years not to resolve this issue which is now only a language issue?
The MCA alienated many doctors when the Ministry of Health proposed the privatisation of the present system of medical services to the Rakyat for no cogent reason at all. Thereby, the cost of everything would rise and what was available to the doctors since the beginning of time would be taken away from them. Money making schemes are now out of date and exposed to ridicule.
Further, the Chinese schools population was actually going down at the end of the 1970s and beginning 1980s, when for whatever the reasons it began to pick up right up to its highest level at present. This state of affairs is unsatisfactory and has to be sorted out sooner rather than later for the good of all.
No problem with the Chinese school itself but got problem with the output of the Chinese schools especially those that continue in the Chinese system and on to UTAR or to universities in China, Singapore or Taiwan.
These young Malaysians grow up in isolation of the other races and I suspect they become accustomed to thinking that only the Chinese are good at and must make money, and the rest of nation building and non-money churning activities such as teaching and nursing must be done by the others.
If raising this issue makes me racist, then I am one. But I long to see more attempt and goodwill from the Chinese in sharing the responsibilities of Nation Building. MCA top leaders have kept very quiet on issues above and on occassions I have heard them say very hurtful things in public, forgetting that many non-Chinese do understand Chinese now.
For starts Chinese business and MCA leaders should ponder:
1. Why do you sell different prices to different people?
2. Why is there a need for Mandarin speaking in job advertisements when the job is not in China, and does not require calls to China?
3. How long do you think the Malays will tolerate DSN wooing the Chinese when the Malays continue to feel some of the actions are not good for the Malays and for Malaysia in the long term?
Even the Malays are not always lazy to think.
Yup. You said it well. Separate school system promotes what else: SEPARATION.
What good is a system if it separates us from tender age. By all mean, learn Tamil, Mandarin or Spanish or Arabic, but under one roof.
MCA takes an easy way out: Pretend that it is not a problem. It is a problem.
We cant expect DAP to speak genuinely. The “son in heaven” “lives happily ever after”.
MCA must tell the truth to the Chinese. that sooner or later they (as a result of separation) will be in clash mode with others. Or in a crude language, for God’s sake, accept reality that this is not China.
I have always said that the MCA should have tackled the difficult issue of explaining to the Malaysian Chinese their history, their wherewithal, their relationship with their compatriots and their future, decades ago. What did they do ? Nothing. And all the misunderstandings are suddenly heaped upon them at every General Elections !
They refuse to even correct an easy matter of inserting three words in the national language that’s missing from their already trilingual slogan.
It is no use for MCA trying to be recalcitrant just before every General Election to demand what they rightly should have. It is the performance record that counts which no one can deny them if they had done their job through the decades which should not be just social welfare. Whoever was responsible had turned a premier and credible political vehicle into a Mickey Mouse or worse ! And through MCA’s history there are landmarks of incompetence which stand out like sore thumbs.
re: “And through MCA’s history there are landmarks of incompetence which stand out like sore thumbs.”
Which ones do rate as ‘landmarks’?
And through inaction and by default, the MCA only benefits their opponents who want to do them in. – a sort of dog eat dog scenario.
One sore thumb was the MCA withdrew from the Alliance at 2.30 pm 13 May 1969 and re-joined at 10 pm 13 May 1969. How many innocent died during this period that day and thereafter ?
Thanks for the nuggets of info. You’re knowledgeable.
Further, the MCA leadership became a lame duck and was in the doghouse till April 1974 when the Mandarin small-town boys took over from the aging towkays. These boys really went to town – they took the next plane to Soho, London and had a ball of a time !
These Mandarin Malaysian Chinese over-reached and their leader ended up in jail on both sides of the Causeway in 1986 ! It took them another 10 years to recover again. Such were the fortunes of a social welfare party like the MCA ! And now we see the unhealthy exuberance of the DAP once again !
I saw the irrational exuberance of the PAP/DAP throughout the 1960s and the days before and after 13 May 1969. The PAP, in the Dewan Rakyat, and the Sulaiman Court, Kuala Lumpur.
I saw the demonstrations in Foch Avenue (Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock) and Imbi Road, Kuala Lumpur. In those days, only the Chinese live in the towns and security was better provided. These days, we have mixed neighbourhoods and the security is stretched. I appeal to all please be normal and respect each other as Malaysians.
Good advice. Please tell the Chinese that DAP is bringing them into physical clash with Malays.
There is an ancient Chinese saying,’ We must have harmony at home before we win battles in the streets.’ In other words, Malaysia must be in harmony before she is successful in competition in trade or whatever outside her borders.
Whoever is responsible for the rising spate of mischief (which is absolutely unnecessary) has to answer for all these nonsense fully. Hopefully nothing untoward happens. But who can foretell ?
I take strong objections to taunting, insulting, cursing, swearing, etc at our compatriots. This is unnecessary and should not happen. This sort of behaviour will not gain more votes !
