“MCA has started investigating leaders and members suspected of having sabotaged the party in the 13th general election, Nanyang Siang Pau reported today.” (source: The Sun, 2 June 2013)
With regard to the MCA probe on internal sabotage, urm, like how much more damage can traitorous party members do?
In 2008, MCA had 15 MPs and in 2013, it has 7 MPs.
The 8 constituencies lost by MCA in GE13 are listed below with their total number of registered voters within brackets:
- Kampar (63,619)
- Alor Setar (69,009)
- Pandan (83,857)
- Lumut (88,300)
- Raub (54,214)
- Gelang Patah (106,726)
- Kluang (86,732)
- Kulai (83,991)
Taken together, the MCA has lost its reach to 8 wards holding a total of 636,448 registered voters.
Defeat in the election may have caused MCA to lose the potential audience of 0.64 million mentioned above but do please remember that The Star reaches a sure audience of 5.63 million adults nationwide.
And the MCA’s Gunting dalam Lipatan is handing over this 5.63 million daily to the DAP propaganda. More dangerous than the Red Bean Army is the enemy within.
MCA’s commitment is questioned
Regular commenter Shamshul Anuar left the following remark (excerpt):
“As I repeatedly said earlier, it is better MCA and Gerakan to be “buried’ politically speaking.
“They are no longer relevant. Chinese have decided that they do not need these 2 parties. DAP, that is more provocative than these 2 BN components, suit the Chinese mood: hostility towards Malays.
“Actually I am not that riled with DAP. What really upset me is the refusal of Umno to response.”
Love, love, love …
Bertanam tebu di bibir.
Cakap tak serupa bikin.
Statistics don’t lie
The BN has in its hands concrete data from the Saluran returns in 174 Parliament seats – not counting the seats where MCA and Gerakan had stood – that were contested by the coalition’s GE13 candidates including Umno proxy Ibrahim Ali in Pasir Mas.
This data can be examined to calculate with a fair degree of accuracy how the various races voted. I have no doubt that the tally from the ballot boxes will prove conclusively that the Chinese – to the estimate of 90 percent – had rejected the BN.
The MCA claims to have one million members… Missing in Action, quite obviously, on 5 May 2013.
Similarly MIA are the votes from the quarter of a million Gerakan members, of whom 80 percent are Chinese as once revealed by former party president Koh Tsu Koon.
Earlier I’d shown the correlation between a constituency’s Chinese population and the level of support for the DAP there.
The correlation between Chinese electorate-BN support is inverse: e.g. Gerakan’s Ng Song Kheng obtained 15.99% of the total votes cast in the Penang Parliament seat of Tanjong which has 85.23% Chinese voters. The inverse correlation of 15.99% and 85.23% is almost a perfect match.
If the MCA and Gerakan’s own members had pangkah dacing, their parties would surely have secured more than a million extra votes.
CONCLUSION: There is no other way to interpret the Chinese tsunami except that most of the MCA and Gerakan members did not vote for the BN.
MCA must be held to account
Gerakan’s sole Parliament seat is in the Malay-majority area of Simpang Renggam.
Six out of the 7 Parliament seats that the MCA is currently holding are Malay-majority areas:
Ayer Itam (57.9 % Malay), Alor Gajah (57.8% Malay), Tanjong Malim (53.0% Malay), Tanjong Piai (52.1% Malay), Tebrau (47.4% Malay) and Bentong (44.9% Malay, 43.9% Chinese).
The only Chinese-majority seat still belonging to MCA is Labis with a 46.5% Chinese electorate, and even then, Chua Tee Yong’s victory there was by a whisker.
It is not good enough that MCA withdraw their participation in the Cabinet and government. The party must at the same time answer to its kawan-kawan setia in BN on the betrayal of the BN setiakawan spirit.
How on earth did the Malaysian.CHINESE.Association lose the plot to such an extent that 90 percent of the community it claims to represent are currently refusing to let up in their confrontational stance?
Api dalam sekam
One of the biggest culprits perpetrating the BN sabotage is the Scissors lethal weapon that the MCA keeps in its fold.
Backstabbing carried out by The Star is most certainly a main contributory cause to the MCA, Gerakan and SUPP wipe-out.
The MCA sent its 127 men and women out to the battlefield to be slaughtered by the Evangelista Bintang Tiga.
Below you can see at a glance the pool of blood.
Dunno where Red Bean ends and Red Star begins
The Star‘s consistent skewing sealed the death warrant for all the brave MCA men and women whose names are recorded in the epitaph above.
That the Star Media Group has been allowed to function as an auxiliary of the Red Bean Army for the last 6 years is criminal neglect on the part of the MCA. (Or was it a case of deliberately closing one eye?)
Now that the DAP has successfully murdered the MCA, Gerakan and SUPP, Umno is the next target. If ever Pakatan storms Putrajaya, BN should not hope to be able to wrest back power again.
The success of Pakatan in Selangor should serve as a dire warning.
Once Pakatan takes control, it will be impossible to dislodge them. Look for yourself how from 2008 to 2013, Pakatan not only entrenched themselves but even increased their haul by 8 seats.
This is done via its saturation propaganda blasted 24/7 through every medium at every level.
The BN has already lost the popular vote in 2013.
By the next election round, the BN should not be surprised to find itself warming the opposition benches should it fail to deal effectively with the DAP deep indoctrination virus.
Red Bean counters are merely the grunts. It is The Star that is the nerve centre of the brainwashing which will most definitely cause BN to hemorrhage young and urban votes.
About the so-called ‘Urban-Rural divide’. Development and demography is on the side of Pakatan. For how long more can Umno depend on its rural vote bank and Felda safe deposit?
