Dr M’s “I told you so” moment

Dapsters are going uber berserk at the Tun. Again.

They sneer that Dr Mahathir Mohamad is old and irrelevant.

If he is so irrelevant, why are there almost 300 comments responding to him in Malaysiakini?

Yesterday Malaysiakini published an article titled ‘Rallies prove ‘Chinese racism’ in GE13, says Dr M‘. (The Malaysiakini article was also picked up by Yahoo! News, here.)

It was not Utusan that gave prominence to Dr M’s thoughts on the DAP-driven 505 rallies. It was Malaysiakini.

If Dr M was so irrelevant – and in the case of yesterday’s flap, you can’t blame Utusan for his headlining turn this time – then why give him airplay? It is only a newsmaker who commands so many column inches.

Furthermore, if he really is irrelevant, why the predictable shooting of Dapster projectiles? Why waste materiel on somebody irrelevant.

mahathir

And after all, the Tun was only penning his personal views in his personal blog. It’s not as if Malaysia’s biggest media conglomerate had blared those views to 5.63 million readers.

If the ex-premier’s views are truly irrelevant as he’s retired, then just leave him be to potter around in his own little plot of cyberspace lah.

But even his blog – it’s just a blog, okay – had been constantly disrupted by cyber attacks. If his views are so irrelevant, then nobody would be bothered to visit the CheDet website, right? So what’s with all the hacking?

After 60 years in politics

Dr Mahathir titled his June 6 blog posting ‘Racial Polarization‘.

He wrote:

“I may not always be right but after 60 years involvement in Malaysian politics I felt strongly that the race factor will continue to dominate the politics of the country. The quality of the candidates or parties, the ideologies and the desire for change will always be secondary to race.”

Let’s evaluate what he said.

We’re venturing into the realm of opinion here. There’s Dr M’s opinion and our own personal opinion. And there is the opinion of the DAP leaders, the Malaysiakini editors and the portal’s subscribers. And there is the opinion of the Dapsters.

Returning to the passage quoted above, Dr M had asserted that the quality of the candidates is a secondary matter for the Malaysian voter who casts his ballot according to ‘race’.

(a) In the context of GE13, Dr M’s assertion could be fine-tuned to say that the Dapster will vote ABU. Anything but Umno translates into a vote for any opposition candidate, as long as he does not belong to BN.

In the context of the Chinese tsunami, the Dapster will vote anyone who is aligned to DAP, which for the moment means any Pakatan person regardless of his race and religion. But there is no pull factor here, i.e. the candidate’s merit. The lack thereof is also immaterial.

There is only the push factor — Mesti tolak BN.

Hence is Dr M right or wrong? Doubtless he still pinpoints the ‘Race’ factor.

But the DAP, in garnering 90 percent Chinese support, has become synonymous with the Chinese race. The DAP will is the Chinese command.

(b) Dr M also wrote: “The DAP playing on racial sentiments drew the Chinese away from BN by depicting the MCA as lackeys of Umno.”

Again is he wrong or is he right? Is the DAP spit that MCA are Umno lackeys a matter of race or a matter of “good governance” lah, “transparency” lah, “accountability” lah, “competency” lah.

MCA pollies are in fact multiply more competent than the DAP carpetbaggers. And they have more integrity too. But this is just my opinion.

(Usually I don’t like to touch on intangibles like integrity which is not easy to quantify. Regular readers know this as my blog is filled with data, tables, pie charts, graphs, electoral maps as well as citations as to where I sourced my statistics/information from. But in the case of the DAP Christian politicians’ proclivity for self-righteousness, sorry I cannot tahan lah.)

(c) Dr M further wrote: “Although the DAP claims to be multiracial, it is in fact a Chinese party with mainly Chinese members and leadership.”

Why don’t DAP prove him wrong by releasing their membership roll? The multi-racial Gerakan is willing to admit that 80 percent of its members are Chinese.

Below is a screenshot of the DAP Youth Facebook. Do you believe that the non-Chinese children 3-to-1 on their banner is an honest reflection of Dapsy?

DAPSY Malaysia Facebook 2013-06-07 10-49-08

(d) Dr M concluded: “If today the schism between the races is deeper it is because the DAP reject the Malay/Chinese/Indian kongsi.”

Is Dr M correct to say that the schism between the races is deeper? You mean it’s not? Well Hallelujah!

(e) Dr M makes a prediction that the pronounced racial polarization will become more so in the future.

Since he’s talking about the future, we shall have to wait and see if he will be proven right or wrong.

We can however though look to the past for a clue.

In 1965, Dr M made a speech in Parliament about the DAP’s parent company, i.e. Singapore’s PAP. See ‘DAP of today like PAP of 1965

He said that the PAP believed that “the MCA must be destroyed”. And Dr M said this 48 years ago. Now we know that he was correct all those years ago. [Cross refer point (b) above.]

Dr M also exposed 48 years ago how the PAP leaders “have never failed to say out aloud that they have nothing against the Umno or the Malays, but on the other hand the MCA was pictured to the Malays as a weak, corrupt Kuomintang orientated Chinese chauvinist party”.

Look at the DAP modus operandi today. They have never failed to say out aloud that they have nothing against the Malays. Only against “Umnoputras”.

On the other hand the MCA is pictured to the PAS and PKR Malays as a weak, corrupt Chinese chauvinist, Islam-hating party.

Wow! Dr M was right again.

Looking at how GE13 panned out, it might just have crossed the Tun’s mind that he ought to clamber up to his attic and look for that magic crystal ball he used in 1965.

Every day the Dapsters are working so hard to confirm Dr Mahathir’s 50-year-old opinion. And boy, are they succeeding beyond even his expectations.

  1. it is obvious that these people have no idea that they have been outplayed by Tun M. he must be laughing at them. he must be saying to himself :

    “oh my. these people. easily provoked. say something that’s not pleasing to their ears and they go berserk”.

    if only more Malays are competent in the English language, have a decent command of the language. then perhaps they could see for themselves that despite all this talk about friendship between the 3 opposition parties, Malays are being single out as racists by their allies in the opposition alliance.

    but as always, The Star is silent on this.

    1. “if only more Malays are competent in the English language”

      You must be living under a proverbial coconut shell….

      1. it’s kinda true that Malays should be more proficient in English. banyak sgt kes saya lihat org share article yg bagus dlm bahasa inggeris – pastu mesti ada ramai yg reply: ‘ boleh tolong terjemahkan dlm BM tak? akak/ saye ni bahsa omputeh tak paham sgt taw’

        T_____T

    2. The Chinese and Indian are still thinking that Mahathir has the Malays attention. It is a strange situation where the Chinese in Msiakini are more concern about Mahathir then the Malays themselves.

      Mahathir ideas are lapuk. Tun hanya tahu bercakap tapi tak tahu dan tak mahu menolong Melayu. Orang Melayu kena jaga masa depan generasi akan datang mereka sendiri.Bukan tugas Mahathir atau Najib atau Muhyidin. Mereka hanya mementingkan kekayaan, wang ringgit untuk keluarga mereka dan mereka dah pun kenyang.

      Anak-anak Tun adalah bilionoair!!

      Ini bukti kejahatan dan ketamakan Tun kepada orang Melayu. Sebab itu the Malays dont care apa Tun nak cakap lagi.

      Jadi lebih baik untuk masa depan Melayu amnya, pemimpin baru dipilih.

      Soalnya bagaimana kita mahu memilih ketua Melayu yang baru? Kerana sistem hierarki dalam UMNO sangat mudah dimanipulasi dan keutamaan kepada incumbent.

      Nasib baik kita ada internet dan blogs sekarang. Seseorang pemimpin adalah seorang yang ada idea-idea yang bagus. Dan idea yang bagus ini akan disokong oleh majoriti.

      A natural leader akan terpilih dengan sendirinya. Kita boleh nilai kebodohan Muhyidin yang menghadkan aset Melayu kepada 30% sedangkan ini Tanah Melayu, kebodohan Mustapha dengan senarai berbillion yang dipunyai oleh Cina dan India di Malaysia tapi masih membekal buruh hamba abdi untuk kilang-kilang Cina.

      Idea-idea ini adalah bodoh dan keadaan dimana Cina dan India mengawal 400 billion seperti yang dikatakan oleh Ahmad Husni adalah bukti nyata kegagalan pemimpin UMNO dulu dan sekarang.

      Siapa yang layak dan ada memberi pendapat-pendapat yang baik untuk orang Melayu? Kita bloggers lah… haha…

      Kenapa bloggers Melayu? Kerana kita tidak dibeli oleh orang Cina. Kerana orang Cina tak boleh cari kita dan sogok dengan saham dan duit.

      Masaalah UMNO adalah masaalah sukses dan kekuatan politik Melayu jadi UMNO perlu diawasi oleh semua orang Melayu di dalam dan luar UMNO. Mantan Presiden UMNO sendiri menceritakan tiap-tiap minggu jumpa ahli perniagaan India Syed Mokhtar atau Tokey judi Vincent Tan di luar negara dan keputusan memberi kapal terbang kepada Tody fernandes dibuat di luar kabinet.

      Banyaklagi salah laku yang sebetulnya CBT dibuat oleh pemimpin UMNO tanpa disedari.

      Mampu, Khazanah, EPU. SKMM semua membuat keputusan untuk mengkayakan orang Cina tapi yang pasti memberi tempias sedikit kepada KEtua Pengarah atau kroninya.

      Keputusan yang bertentangan dengan Perlembagaan memberi sumber alam seperti frekuensi, satelit semua dilakukan tanpa difahami oleh Melayu amnya.

      Jadi, pengawasan polisi dan Jabatan Kerajaan lebih penting dari siapa menjadi Presiden UMNO. Kerana orang Cina dan India hanya menunggu untuk merasuah Presiden, Ketua Pemuda, Wanita seperti yang telah mereka lakukan ratusan tahun dulu dengan Raja-Raja Melayu.

      Pemblog Melayu juga mampu menangkis propaganda India dan Cina di NST, TheStar MMail dan Berita Harian yang di boloti oleh mereka selama ini.

      1. doh Tun dah lama menolong orang Melayu. Masalahnya org Melayu yg kaya hasil kerja keras Tun jadi golongan bangsawan yg malas dan mahu membolot kekayaan utk sendiri saja. Jarang dapat yg mahu memberi balik kepada negara dan rakyat. Itu tak boleh salahkan Tun. He gave the tools, it’s up to us on how to use it. Takkan sampai sekarang nak Tun pegang tangan kita tunjuk cara macam mana nak potong the proverbial kuih.

        Pasal anak2 dia, itu rezeki diaoranglah. Saya tak mahu comment on that sbb kita tak tahu cerita sebenar. Takkanlah semua org anak yg billionaire kita nak dengki sampai macam tu. Belajarlah rajin2. Kerja keras instead of nak free ini dan itu. Insyaallah kita pun dapat.

        Blogger Melayu tak boleh dibeli oleh org Cina? hmmm, all I can say is don’t be too riak. and as a Malay, I can attest that Tun’s words are still very much relevant. The Opposition knows this. Why do you think they try so very hard to demonize him again and again?

      2. “A natural leader akan terpilih dengan sendirinya. Kita boleh nilai kebodohan Muhyidin yang menghadkan aset Melayu kepada 30% sedangkan ini Tanah Melayu, kebodohan Mustapha dengan senarai berbillion yang dipunyai oleh Cina dan India di Malaysia tapi masih membekal buruh hamba abdi untuk kilang-kilang Cina.”

        Ini KPI la. Sekurang-kurangnya Melayu kena kuasai 30% aset dalam negara bukannya jumlah aset tu dihadkan kepada 30%. Maksud lainnya ialah bangsa lain tak dibenarkan usik 30% bahagian yang dikhaskan untuk Melayu. 70% lagi tu rebut la ramai-ramai antara Melayu, Bumiputera dan lain-lain.

  2. Siapa makan cili dialah terasa pedasnya…hehehe Tun M stir his stew pot and people move heavent and earth just to taste it….

    :P sarah

  3. The Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP is 47 long years too late. The DAP is now all fire and brimstone, their brilliant founder Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore is having legacy problems with his own people. AND DAP FAILED TO DELIVER A CONQUERED MALAYSIA TO THE BRILLIANT LEE KUAN YEW TO SAVE HIS REPUTATION OF A LIFE-TIME !

    There is an ancient saying, ‘ All front and no backside !’

  4. Yes DAP was succesful potraying MCA as Islam hating party but why MCA was so stupid that it put series of advertisement in The Star prior to PR13 to confirm that image. Was MCA succumbed to DAP’s strategies….

    1. Here pepatah melayu which I think suitable for MCA and Dap situation :

      Gelagak boreh rambutan, orang berbunga dia berbunga, orang berbuah dia tidak

      :D sarah

  5. I sincerely hope the Oppostion leadership fully realise the fragile nature of the Pulau Pinang State economy which is definitely unlike Singapore’s their inspirational homeland. Soon the World’s turmoil will be upon all of us which maybe translated into a decrease in tourism and exports, a rise in unemployment and inflation. Even with the best intentions of administrating the State normally, there will be many pitfalls to overcome.To embark on a unending confrontational politcal path is alright for the top leadership, but what about the rice and curry for the Rakyat ?

    1. Singapore is a financial safe haven. people put their money there to work for them, thus Singapore is a global financial center. the same can’t be said of Penang. you see, Penang is essentially a manufacturing based economy. when global demand is not encouraging, Penang will go into a tailspin. that’s why Penang recorded lower FDI in 2010 and 2011. add the fact that its Chief Minister is a failed accountant and we have a crisis brewing but of course his flock, his fanatical supporters will say otherwise.

      1. How dare you utter those blasphemous words against our beloved & adored Tokong??!!!!

        The heavens will unleash fire & brimstone upon you for your insolence. But not immediately anyway. For a start you’ll be hit with the pitter patter of raindrops. It will all culminate with PR taking over Putrajaya & MCMC when we unleash our police hounds & hunt you like the Jew you are!!!

        Until then, go ahead & provoke. Payback’s a bastard. Or is it a bitch? For now the red bean soup is simmering before they unleash hell ala Russell Crowe’s gladiators on you unsuspecting UMNOputras!!!

        Don’t know how they do it. Talking shit like that with so much negativity, hatred & malice is tiring…

  6. It is not the DAP that draws the Chinese support away from BN. Dr M had more than 20 years and yet he used he divide and rule principle to rule Malaysia according to race ether than as Malaysian. So in order to maintain his power in UMNO he had to use race factor to unite the Malay while using Chinese as bogeyman. Thus this five the excuse for the DAP to convince the Chinese that they are the victim. Dr M reap what he sows so don’t blame others.

    1. re: “Dr M had more than 20 years and yet he used he divide and rule principle to rule Malaysia according to race”

      I thought the Bangsar Malaysians always like to say that the divide-and-rule principle is our colonial legacy that was introduced by the British(?)

      In 1951, our country’s greatest statesman Datuk Onn Jaafar offered Malayans the golden opportunity for non-communal politics. He was rejected by the Chinese who chose the Alliance formula of Umno-MCA-MIC.

      Exactly 30 years later, Dr M came to power as PM. Do you think that if he had repeated the Datuk Onn offer in 1981, the citizenry would have been prepared to react any differently from how they did to Datuk Onn?

      Now another 30+2 years later, there is the reprise suggestion that Umno open its door (which was what Datuk Onn had wanted to do). And look at the reaction now. Quite frankly, if I were a Malay or an Umno member, I would have exactly the same reservations looking at the Chinese GE13 behaviour.

      So why blame Dr M one man for the behaviour of the entire society (all races)?

      re: “Dr M … rule Malaysia according to race [rather] than as Malaysian”.

      Why don’t you re-submit your comment in our national language Article 152 according to the Federal Constitution and then we can discuss your grouses as to Dr M’s lack of “Malaysian” emphasis during his rule.

      re: “So in order to maintain his power in UMNO he had to use race factor to unite the Malay while using Chinese as bogeyman.”

      In the first place, the Malays are not united. LGE claimed that 43% of the Malay votes went to Pakatan.

      In the second place, the Chinese are united. Some 90% of the Chinese votes went to Pakatan.

      If Umno employed the same kind of political methods to ensure that 90% of the Malay votes went to them, then you’re welcome to use the Malays as a bogeyman too.

      re: “Thus this [give] the excuse for the DAP to convince the Chinese that they are the victim.”

      I see that a lot of victims are those tormented by the Chinese wor. Remember the tweet from the Beliawanis treasurer wrt “DAP SuperCyber Bully”?

      re: “Dr M reap what he sows so don’t blame others.”

      Ditto the DAP supporters. Don’t be in denial when the backlash comes. And don’t ban “backlash” like it’s a 4-letter word that’s not allowed be uttered either.

      1. UMNO is welcome to unite 90% Malay if they can. After all my point is Dr M had continued to use such divide and rule strategy. The Chinese have been conditioned to vote for BN believing that MCA representing the Chinese. Chinese had been voting according to race right from the independence. But just because Chinese decide to chane course and vote DAP, they are labelled as traitors. Chinese would not support the DAP if UMNO not overzeoulously trying to win Malay support by using the eve and religion factor. DAP survives because of the BN style race based politics. If BN esp UMNO practice the Malaysia Malaysian principle as DAP fight for, DAP would not even survive this election.

        1. Cara politik yang digunakan semasa zaman 50an tidak semestinya berguna pada zaman sekarang. UMNO tidak akan boleh mendapat sokongan 90% sokongan melayu kerana mereka mempraktikkan politik wang. Untuk bangkit dalam sistem politik UMNO, seseorang pemimpin terpaksa menggunakan politik wang untuk mendapat kuasa dan jawatan. Untuk PR13 ramai yang tertarik juga pada BR1M yang merupakan sesuatu rasuah tidak langsung terutamanya untuk penggundi melayu luar bandar. Mereka yang menerima BR1M merasa mereka sepatutnya bersyukur pada UMNO kerana bantuan tersebut. Tetapi mereka sepatutnya hendak merasa malu bahawa selepas 55 tahun merdeka dan demgan hak keistimewaan dan bantuan khas yang diberu UMNO, kenapa mereka masih layak merima bantuan tersebut. Dari segi ini UMNO sudah gagal seteruk-teruknya dan Melayu separutnya malu pada prestasi UMNO. Penggundi bandar walaupun Melayu tidak akan tetarik pada BR1M ini kerana bantuan sebegini tidak sebanyak mana dan mereka akan terus marah pada BN.

          1. Laa, apa kaitannya BR1M dengan Dr M yang bersara pada tahun 2003?

            Komen awal kamu berbunyi: ” Dr M had more than 20 years and yet he used he divide and rule principle to rule Malaysia according to race ether than as Malaysian.”

            1. Sebab bawah pemerintahan Dr M slepas 20 tahun lebih, saya masih hairan kenapa sebegitu ramai melayu masih LAYAK menerima bantuan tersebut.? Adakah ini strategi Dr M untuk memastikan kebanyakan orang Melayu terus mundul dan miskin supaya mereka tagih pada bantuan khas dan hak keistimewaan melayu?

              1. Dalam komen asal kamu diketengahkan dakwaan bahawa kepimpinan Dr M adalah berasaskan kaedah pecah-dan-perintah, dan dengan itu tiada (ataupun ketandusan) sifat keMalaysia-an pada kerajaan zaman Dr M.

                Yang BR1M ini diedarkan 10 tahun selepas persaraan beliau beserta rakyat daripada semua kaum layak menerimanya.

                Kalau ada isu di sini, ia berpaksikan jurang pendapatan serta masalah kemiskinan.

                Adakah faktor kemiskinan penerima BR1M sekarang pula dipersalahkan kepada “kedudukan istimewa” (Perkara 153) kaum Melayu? Dan apa kaitan BR1M dengan lebihan dan ‘kesempurnaan’ konsep Malaysian Malaysia yang dijaja DAP?

                1. BR1M hanya satu perkara yang mendedahkan bahawa walaupun dengan kedudukan keistimewaan Melayu, masih begitu ramai Melayu yang layak untuk bantuan berbanding dengan bukan melayu. Kalau BN dari awalnya mempraktikkan Malaysian malaysia atau memaksakan asimilasi atas bukan Melayu seperti yang berlaku pada Indonesia, Thailand atau Phillipine, saya rasa UMNO tidak mungkin akan wujud. Itu sebabnya kolum bangsa masih berada dalam pelbagai borang demi implimentasi pelbagai polisi yang mengutamakan Melayu. Saya rasa “kedudukan istimewa” kalau dilakukan dengan betul, tiada bantahan dari rakyat tetapi pada kebanyakan masa “kedudukan istimewa” digunakan untuk menyalur projek pada kroni (termasuk kroni bukan Melayu dengan cara alibaba), gejala rasuah yang melampau ini yang menghalang kemajuan negara yang sepatutnya. Bila rakyat terutamanya bukan Melayu tanya pada polisi kroni sebegini, kebiasaanya BN terutamanya UMNO akan menggunakan alasan “kedudukan istimewa” dan jika ditekan lagi, UMNO akan mengapi-apikan emosi Melayu yang menyokong UMNO membabi buta atas nama mempertahankan hak Melayu.

            2. Cara pemerintahan Dr M semenagnya ‘divide and rule’ beasaskan bangsa. BN mahu setiap parti politik bertanggungjawap pada bangsa masing-masing. Kalau ada masalah, bawa pada parti politik masing-masing dan pemimpin akan berbincang untuk cara penyelesaian pada peringkat atas. Cara ini memang berkesan kerana setiap bangsa jarang berinteraksi sesama sendiri. Inilah sebabnya BN TIDAK PERNAH berniat dan TIDAK AKAN menghapuskan sekolah vernikular kerana sekolah vernikular adalah cara yang terbaik untuk memisahkan setiap bangsa dari usia muda lagi. Ini sebabnya sekolah juruan Inggeris telah dihapuskan kerana digemari semua kaum. Sekolah kebangsaan yang berasaskan Melayu dan menutamakan bangsa Melayu dan Islam lama-kelamaan ditinggalkan oleh bukan Melayu terutamanya Cina. Dengan memastikan prejudice antara bangsa Melayu dan bukan melayu terutamanya Cina akan memastikan Melayu mempunyai rasa ‘kebimbangan’ dan ‘ketakutan’ bahawa hak mereka akan dirompak dan HANYA UMNO boleh mempertahankan hak ini.
              Tetapi degan perpecahkan dalam UMNO kerana perebutan kuasa, perpaduan melayu berpecah-belah dan maka untuk memastikan sokongan, cara-cara yang ektrim telah digunakan oleh UMNO sehinggakan Melayu yang berpecah dari UMNO dan bekerjasama dengan pembangkang bukan melayu dilabel sebagai pengkianat bangsa. Mereka yang menyokong pembangkang dikatakan anti Melayu dan dengan ini secara tidak langsung bukan Melayu terutamanya Cina dilabel sebagai punca pengkianatan. Tambahan lagi dengan kehilangan monopoli saluran informasi kerana kebangkitan internet dan media sosial, UMNO lagi kehilangan pengaruh kerana terdapat sasluran alternatif yang membolehkan rakyat untuk mendapat informasi.

              1. Helen – tak perlulah nak melayan sibodoh sekor ni yang tak pernah belajar mengenang budi, buang masa saja dan biarlah dia melalak sorang diri

              2. Salah satu ketidakpuashatian saya terhadap politik di Malaysia adalah sikap – jika kamu tidak bersama kami, kamu adalah penentang kami. Sikap yang menular dari pemimpin hingga ke peringkat bawahan tidak kira pihak mana sekalipun.

                Saya setuju dengan pemerhatian ChedeTDM bahawa kemenangan BN kali ini bukan kerana sokongan terhadap BN sangat, sebaliknya adalah kerana ketiadaan alternatif terhadap BN.

                Bagi saya, sikap penyokong PR yang tidak boleh bertoleransi dengan pandangan yang berbeza adalah sesuatu yang menjauhkan orang dari mereka.

                Walaupun penyokong BN mempunyai sikap seperti ini, namun apa yang diharapkan adalah PR berbeza dengan BN dan menawarkan iklim politik yang lebih sihat, bukan sahaja dari segi retorik, tapi yang lebih penting dari segi akhlaq – Namun apa yang terjadi adalah, sesetengah golongan dari kalangan PR lebih ganas dan ‘beracun’ berbanding dengan BN.

                Ujiannya mudah. Pergi ke tempat yang ramai penyokong PR dan cuba tanya/ persoalkan perndirian dan isu yang lain dari PR dan lihat apa hasilnya.

                Retorik ChedeTDM bahawa lebih baik “Syaitan yang dikenali berbanding Malaikat yang tidak dikenali” tidak tepat pada saya. Ini kerana dalam kes politik Malaysia sebelum PRU13, belum ada Malaikat yang tidak dikenali. Dua-dua pihak ada ciri ‘Syaitan’nya.

            3. Helen, obviously “Malaysian” is a Red Bean Cyber trooper brewing sticky red bean soup….one look at his writing confirms it ..not worth to reply ;D

                1. “Not worth reply because you have nothing to argue.”

                  Your stupidity doesn’t interest us…

              1. Saya sokong penuh “Malaysian” yang menyalahkan konsep ‘divide and rule” dan memberikan contoh asimilasi di Thailand, Indonesia & Singapura.

                Apa kata kita mulakan dengan Sekolah Kebangsaan. Mohon sokongan “Malaysian”. Kemudian kita ikut cara asimilasi yang selainnya yang diguna pakai di negara-negara tersebut.

                1. Saya rasa dengan meningkatkan kualiti sekolah kebangsaan , mengurangkan pengaruh Islam dan meningkatkan mutu pengajaran Inggeris, maka ini boleh menarik ibupaba bukan Melayu untuk menghantar anak-anak mereka ke SK.

                  1. Apa pengaruh Islam di sekolah kebangsaan? Bacaan doa pada pagi perhimpunan ka? Apa boleh buat Malaysian, Islam agama Rasmi dan agama-agama lain (yang tidak dinyatakan langsung sebagai apa) boleh dipraktik bersendirian. Propagate pun tidak boleh. Mungkin lebih sedap kalau kau, sebagai true Malaysian bercakap berlandaskan Perlembagaan Persekutuan daripada parroting apa yang DAP selalu cakap berlandaskan logik akal LKS dan KS!

                  2. Bro, budak SJKC/T masuk sekolah tu bukan nak terel cakap BI pon. Dah mak/bapak dia tak suka SK jadi kalu amik english speaking teacher untuk suma subjek pon tetaplah tak ramai yang masuk SK!

              2. bahasa melayu dia pelik, mana ada orang pakai perkataan juruan dan perpecahkan sekarang ni. hahaaaha kacang merah, kacang merah, nampak sangat pakai google translation.

            4. Helen,

              Kalau di sekolah dahulu, cikgu BM saya selalu akan menulis “karangan anda terpesong!” jika anak muridnya merepek.

        2. And what is the concept of Malaysian Malaysia preached by the DAP again, please provide us the blue print, if you have any?

      2. Actually I never afraid of any backlash from UMNO in particular. Non Malay population is ever decreasing. Given another 50 years, non Malay will become a minority (probably less than 10%)in this country and their threat is insignificant at that time. The Malays will then consists of few parties fighting for the governing power of this country. At that time the political tone will not be race anymore. Non Mlay support will be very important and it will be the best interet of various malay parties to get whatever non malay support.

        1. No lah this is a lopsided judgement. The minorities (has been proven since GE13 and clearly documented by Helen, haven’t you know already?) are not the kingmaker, period!

          Even now (thanks to the Chinese) they have failed to jatuhkan UMNO, what more when they have become less than 10%.

          Who had been feeding you with the figure the Botak DOKTOR OKM?!

      3. “I thought the Bangsar Malaysians always like to say that the divide-and-rule principle is our colonial legacy that was introduced by the British(?)”

        Precisely. And this colonial tactic was readily exploited by the government, and Mahathir, to ensure their hold on power.

        “In 1951, our country’s greatest statesman Datuk Onn Jaafar offered Malayans the golden opportunity for non-communal politics. He was rejected by the Chinese who chose the Alliance formula of Umno-MCA-MIC.”

        But it was Datuk Onn Jaafar who resigned after his own party members objected to opening the party to other races.

        “Now another 30+2 years later, there is the reprise suggestion that Umno open its door (which was what Datuk Onn had wanted to do). And look at the reaction now. Quite frankly, if I were a Malay or an Umno member, I would have exactly the same reservations looking at the Chinese GE13 behaviour.”

        And uniting MIC-MCA-UMNO under one party would make it more attractive to the middle ground and fence-sitters. The reason why MCA and MIC performance was lacklustre can be pointed at UMNO disregarding its coalition members. The hysteria it went into after the election blaming the Chinese for causing the Barisan Nasional to lose more seats surely won’t help it win more support.

        “So why blame Dr M one man for the behaviour of the entire society (all races)?”

        It is certainly unfair to blame everything on Mahathir. He has done some good things for the country. But he has managed the country for over 20 years and much of the racial or religious polarisation widen during his watch.

        “I see that a lot of victims are those tormented by the Chinese wor. Remember the tweet from the Beliawanis treasurer wrt “DAP SuperCyber Bully”?”

        Have you read any of the blogs/rubbish written by the Barisan Nasional cybertroopers?

        1. re: “Precisely. And this colonial tactic was readily exploited by the government, and Mahathir, to ensure their hold on power.”

          Okay fine. Flatten all the ethnic distinctions then. No race distinction, no need for Chinese school. Why “divide” the children? Also get rid of the language “divide” in the public sphere (this does not encroach into home settings, just in the public domain).

          re: “But it was Datuk Onn Jaafar who resigned after his own party members objected to opening the party to other races.”

          Onn established the Independence of Malaya Party which was open to all races. IMP had the support of the British and Malay establishment (Datuk Panglima Bukit Gantang, Nik Ahmad Kamil Nik Mahmud the Menteri Besar of Kelantan, and other old school Malay nobility).

          The Chinese rejected IMP and preferred the Alliance’s communal format.

          re: “The hysteria it went into after the election blaming the Chinese for causing the Barisan Nasional to lose more seats surely won’t help it win more support.”

          The Chinese tsunami is a fact. As for regaining Chinese support, why throw good money after bad (English idiom)? Whatever Najib does short of Umno committing harakiri won’t get the Chinese to return to the BN.

          re: “much of the racial or religious polarisation widen during his watch”

          It widened further during Najib’s watch.

          And Ah Jib Gor is the most Chinese-friendly PM this country has ever had. Even Tunku didn’t wear red Chinese shirt, beat Chinese drum during CNY, try to speak Mandarin, write cheques for SRJK (C), allow more independent Chinese secondary schools to open, approve uni-college status for Han Chiang and New Ear, recognize China degrees …

          You complain that Dr M was Chinese-averse and racial polarization widened during his tenure.

          Well, you surely can’t make the same complaint about Najib. So do you care to explain how it is that racial polarization widened even more during Najib’s tenure?

          re: “Have you read any of the blogs/rubbish written by the Barisan Nasional cybertroopers?”

          By all means, pls point them out. If you’ll provide the urls, I’m willing to read.

            1. According to ACDC’s logic, LKS, Dong Jia Zong and the rest of their kinds are mere bystanders. Victims.

              And just when we had something serious to talk about, ACDC and his Malaysian kaki will vanished. Now you see me, …

          1. “Onn established the Independence of Malaya Party which was open to all races. IMP had the support of the British and Malay establishment (Datuk Panglima Bukit Gantang, Nik Ahmad Kamil Nik Mahmud the Menteri Besar of Kelantan, and other old school Malay nobility).”

            And the IMP only won one seat. Why fault the Chinese only when the Malays also did not support it?

            “The Chinese tsunami is a fact. As for regaining Chinese support, why throw good money after bad (English idiom)? Whatever Najib does short of Umno committing harakiri won’t get the Chinese to return to the BN.”

            All the Chinese shirt wearing, drum beating, et. was made to look insincere with Utusan’s propaganda, Perkasa’s sabre-rattling, and endorsing Zul Noordin to contest under a BN ticket in Shah Alam, among others.

            If its a Chinese tsunami, how did Zulkifli Noordin lose in Shah Alam? How did PAS get more state seats in Terengganu and Selangor, gain footholds in Melaka and Johor?

            Lets look at N.30 Buntong, which you earlier mentioned as having 49% Indians. A. Sivasubramaniam of DAP won with an even bigger majority of 72% of all the votes. Even if all the Chinese voted DAP, they wouldn’t have even won.

            Daim also commented the Indians did not go back to BN as they had hoped.

            So what Chinese sew-namey again?

              1. Bro, for DAP which claimed to be non-race based partai can you tell us how many non-chinese candidate for last PRU? Talak pecaya sama calon bukan Cina kah?

            1. “And the IMP only won one seat. Why fault the Chinese only when the Malays also did not support it?”

              The Malayan Union of 1946 was offered to all those living in Malaya. The Malays rejected it vehemently but at the same time, the Chinese failed to support it as well. Would it not have been wise for the Chinese to have supported the MU which granted citizenship on more liberal terms than the Perjanjian Persekutuan Tanah Melayu which followed in 1948?

              With IMP, Datuk Onn in 1951 had already put on the plate what the opposition is today peddling, i.e. throwing out “race-based parties”.

              So “why fault the Chinese only?” B’cos the Chinese are the ones currently screaming that “race-based parties” are racist and evil.

              The Malays are perfectly happy with Umno (united MALAY national organization) remaining a Malay vehicle. And neither is PAS being asked to dissolve and merge with the Christian DAP.

              So why is there any need to fault the Malays for the failure of IMP? After all, it’s not the Malays who are today casting single race parties as a political abomination.

              re: “If its a Chinese tsunami, how did Zulkifli Noordin lose in Shah Alam?”

              Khalid Samad is the incumbent.

              Zul Nordin was a last-minute candidate and not Umno. Shah Alam would have its local Umno warlord who had already been prepping the on-the-ground election machinery. And ZN is suddenly parachuted in. What kind of result do you expect? Plus ZN is a Perak boy.

              But be that as it may, ZN garnered an incredible 38,070 votes out of a turnout of 88,126 voters. That’s 43.2% support from those who went out to vote on May 5.

              Furthermore, ZN did far better than Umno’s 2008 candidate Abdul Aziz Shamsuddin who had gotten 24,042 votes. Which goes to show that Malay sentiment swung back to the establishment in the West Coast states (Malay-heavy constituencies). In the seats where there are more than 60% Malay voters and between 20-30% Chinese voters, Umno won 15 seats and PAS only 4.

              re: “How did PAS get more state seats in Terengganu and Selangor, gain footholds in Melaka and Johor?”

              For the same reason Ali Rustam complained that he lost his Bukit Katil seat in Malacca lah. T’ganu is an anomaly to the other 3. Let me have a more detailed look at the results first.

              re: “Lets look at N.30 Buntong, which you earlier mentioned as having 49% Indians. A. Sivasubramaniam of DAP won with an even bigger majority of 72% of all the votes. Even if all the Chinese voted DAP, they wouldn’t have even won. Daim also commented the Indians did not go back to BN as they had hoped.”

              Duh. Tun Daim already admitted that BN had less than half the Indian votes. You yourself quoted him.

              1. “Zul Nordin was a last-minute candidate and not Umno. Shah Alam would have its local Umno warlord who had already been prepping the on-the-ground election machinery. And ZN is suddenly parachuted in.” Helen

                ZN just like yourself ACDC, “parachuted in” onto Helen’s blog with now you see me, now you don’t lame arguments.

  7. it’s my personal rule of thumb that whenever Dapsters started frothing at the mouth at someone – that someone must be doing something right (which doesn’t bode well for DAP because if the opponent does something right, then that means their (DAP) pekung akan terbuka).

  8. The Opposition did not take the Just One Easy Step to victory since 1997, now it is alleged that it will boycott the proceedings of the Dewan Rakyat – a sort of cart before horse maneuver. I do not see the logic in this and only underlines the Opposition’s titanic mistake by not going on a 100 day hunger strike and boycott the 13th General Elections altogether. The Opposition took part fully in the 13th General Elections by signing the requisite forms and paid the deposits and was active in the 10 day pre-elections fray. By losing according to the EC rules and regulations, the Opposition gave full legitimacy to the BN’s victory as led by Dato Seri Najib.

    Two wrongs do not make a right.

      1. helen,

        Tun is always known for saying the truth. Many hate him. The late Bunyamin of PAS even said Dr Mahathir watched pornographic movie with his grandson.

        And recently, Mahfoz insulted Dr Mahathir by saying Najib will “sumbat Rosmah’s undergarment into Tun’s big mouth.

        When rejecting IMF aid and proceeded with his “medicine” to combat currency specultors, Dr Mahathir was insulted as having knowledge on economy that can be written on back of postage stamps. But look who have the last laugh

        When LKY “warns” Singaporeans that Singapore may be forced to join Malaysia again if PAP not voted again that he alleged will lead to loss of competitive edge, LKY found that Dr Mahathir coolly said that Malaysia may not want to admit “loser” in.

        Dr Mahathir is hated for telling the truth. And the truth hurts. Dr M is not “irrelevant”. Pak Lah learnt that very late. He let Khairi to whack Tun Dr Mahathir, much to chagrin of Malays. The price was UMNO lost Kedah in 2008.

        Dr Mahathir analysis of DAP is very true. DAP finds its footing by bringing Chinese to collide with Malays. And Chinese are fed with lies that it can rule Malaysia without the Malays. This is a dangerous political game. Hostility against Malays will naturally bring backlash.

        in 1960s, LKY tried to replace MCA. But UMNO’s attitude was that while it welcomed PAP, it refused to leave MCA.

        The only reason why UMNO has more influence than any other parties in BN or outside BN is simply winning the lion share of Malay votes. And Malays happen to be the largest etniq group.

        UMNO does not need to cry out loud to proclaim its supremacy in BN. Its supremacy is recognised. UMNO contributes more than half of BN seats.

        For DAP for UMNO (meaning Malays) to rule a country is a sin. Malays are “supposed” to be morons like Adam Adli or court jester like Mohd Sabu or clueless like Haji Hadi.

  9. For the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP to be ultra-active politically till 2018 to conquer our beloved Malaysia for deliverance to the brilliant Lee Kuan Yew with his 9 failed Policies for Singapore to save his reputation of a life-time, this must truly stands as the ultimate act of loyalty in the affairs of humankind. A wait of 52 years ! On the other side of this coin, this shows the deep involvement of Lee Kuan Yew in Malaysian politics which was confirmed by his ill-advised Grand Tour of the Opposition at the age of 86 in April 2008 in anticipation of the capitulation of the BN – a trip which his ranking PAPs and his family eschewed. No Dappies condemn he is that old ! In fact, they all lined up to have their pics taken with him.

  10. It is wise for a Malaysian politician not to condemn another for being a racist if he/she wants to be credible.

  11. Please the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP, confrontational and aggressive politics a’la Lee Kuan Yew will get you nowhere in our beloved Malaysia. In fact, this is retrogressive in this modern day and age.

    There are so many ways to make and bake a cake. To accuse others of using the age old trick of ‘divide and rule’, this sounds hollow and sterile.

    As an ordinary bystander, I already suggested at least 3 ‘Just One Easy Step’ to victory. Surely, as professionals since 1966, 47 long years, you the Opposition can think of something better than me a downtrodden bystander.

    1. LGE has been confrontational and misguidedly aggressive when he took on SM Mohd Idris labelling him as UMNO lackeys for questioning the TYPO TUNNEL project.

      Bapak borek anak rintik, what to do LKS is his father.

      “In fact, this is retrogressive in this modern day and age.”

      But the people in Gelang Patah has proven that this does work!

      Mind boggling.

  12. “MCA is subservient to UMNO, n(o)w subservient to Sultan? MCA can’t make stand on its own? H(o)w to rep the people?”

    Ngeh Koo Ham seditious tweet (and why does he is not being charge with sedition?)

    MCA is subservient to UMNO-read subservient to Malays.

    now subservient to Sultan-read a Malay Sultan la apalagi.

    MCA can’t make stand on its own-read a Chinese party but cannot think for themselves.

    How to represent the people?-read how to represent the Chinese people.

    Now how come this is not chauvanist, racist, divisive, divide and rule-ish, and most importantly pitting the Chinese against the Malays, like what Tun M had pointed out succinctly?!

    To DAP and their lackeys, stop lying, haven’t you guys had learnt enough?

  13. “Inilah sebabnya BN TIDAK PERNAH berniat dan TIDAK AKAN menghapuskan sekolah vernikular kerana sekolah vernikular adalah cara yang terbaik untuk memisahkan setiap bangsa dari usia muda lagi”

    Malaysian | Jun 7, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    Stop the blame game. You are not the victim. The Chinese are not the victim. DAP are definitely not the victim.

    By your logic Dong Jia Zong is chaired by a Chinese, run by the Chinese and supported by the Chinese for the Malays?

    How convenient. You guys are really MELAMPAU!

  14. Helen blog readers, I think Tun M give that statement becouse he saw that RBA already low down and tune down their activities. Or worst the RBA in the process to disband.

    In order to make sure they remain active, he start throwing all this statement to poke their ego. This will make them come out of the wood and make easier fo PDRM to continue investigate them…..\\

    How’s that for conspiracy theories. hahaha

    :D sarah

  15. Agree dengan jamie pasal bangsawan yang bolot untuk diri sendiri dan tidak mahu memberi balik. Melayu have this weakness of phd – perasaan hasad dengki which needs to be eradicated. Why should i enrich my neighbour.

    Colonial era


    Malayu kingdom was the first rival power centre absorbed into the empire, and thus began the domination of the region through trade and conquest in the 7th and 9th centuries. Malayu kingdom’s gold mines up in Batang Hari river hinterland were a crucial economic resource and may be the origin of the word Suvarnadvipa (island of gold), the Sanskrit name forSumatra.

    The area of Chaiya, in Surat Thani Province, Thailand, was already inhabited in prehistoric times by Semang(Orang Asli) and Malayan tribes. Founded in the 3rd century, the Srivijaya kingdom dominated the Malay Peninsula and much of the island of Java from there until the 13th century. The city of Chaiya’s name may be derived from its original Malay name “Cahaya” (meaning ‘light’, ‘gleam’ or ‘glow’). However, some scholars believe that Chai-ya probably comes from Sri-vi-ja-ya. It was a regional capital in the Srivijaya empire of the 5th to 13th century. Some Thai historians argue it was the capital of Srivijaya itself, but this is generally discounted. Wiang Sa andPhunphin were other main settlements of that time……
