Is the problem me? Is my perception faulty?
Because I see that the Chinese – despite the constant whinging that they are a non-threatening minority who are a mere quarter of the national population – are in actual fact bullying everybody else.
And in particular, it is the Chinese Christians – please allow me to refine my observation – it is the DAP evangelistas who are the arrogant superbulies.
And this group of Malaysians still want to whinge the loudest that they are a “persecuted” minority of a minority. So much so that they are deprived by the oppressive Malay regime of the use of kalimah Allah, konon.
To me, the freedom for the evangelista Bintang Tiga to menghasut, memutar-belit dan memfitnah with impunity is a form of bullying as well.
Cowed minorities do not bully others or dare to presume to bully the majority.
So how can the Chinese in Malaysia continue to whinge, claiming victimhood?
Some men got their numbers wrong
Okay, if you’re wondering what set me off, you can look at an article titled ‘The Chinaman’s Burden‘ today in Malaysia Today.
It annoys me when writers provide inaccurate data and particularly so when this wrong data is endlessly repeated.
Pakatan Rakyat did NOT win 53% of the popular vote as claimed in the Malaysia Today article.
Pakatan won 50.87% of the popular vote.
Here are the figures provided by the EC chairman: Pakatan obtained 5,623,984 votes and the BN obtained 5,237,699 votes which translated to 47.38%.
Independent candidates got 1.74% of the votes. Spoilt votes were 1.53%. A total of 11,054,577 votes were cast.
A good website to refer is the Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS) http://electionguide.org but there are many other useful ones too.
What the writer in Malaysia Today who wrote about ‘The Chinaman’s Burden’ has done by claiming that Pakatan won 53% of the popular vote – when it actually won 50.87% – is to kebas the ballot share of the independent candidates and invalid votes.
The biggest evangelista whinger of them all, Lim Guan Eng, did the very same thing in his press statement on 3 June 2013.
Guan Eng had declared:
“Despite BN’s loss in the 2013 general elections, when BN lost the popular vote for the first time in Malaysian history with 47% compared to PR’s 53% of the popular vote, Umno have refused to heed the people’s rejection of racial politics.”
The writer who penned the article titled ‘The Chinaman’s Burden‘ in Malaysia Today provided an excerpt each from Dr M and Kit Siang.
He chose the extract below from Dr Mahathir’s blog:
“If today the schism between the races is deeper it is because the DAP reject the Malay/Chinese/Indian “kongsi”. The DAP wants the Chinese who already dominate the economy, to dominate Malaysia’s politics as well. It is clearly racist and rejects inter-racial sharing of power and wealth as advocated by the BN. Racial polarization has become more pronounced as a result. It will become more so in the future”
And he quoted the extract below from Lim Kit Siang’s blog:
“What they want is a new politics of a Malaysian Dream which could unite all Malaysians regardless of race, religion or region, in a common national purpose to build a new Malaysia where all Malaysians can hold their heads high as proud citizens of a Malaysian nation where there is freedom, justice, good governance, prosperity for all Malaysians where the politics of race is a nightmare of the past”
It is becoming most tiresome that any/everyone currently writing in English and published in the Malaysian media will extol the DAP Firster credo of “Freedom, Justice, Good Governance” yadda yadda yadda, “unite all Malaysians regardless of race, religion” yadda yadda yadda, “people’s rejection of racial politics” yadda yadda yadda as if the DAP Chinese are malaikat.
In fact, to me their kind of writing has gone beyond just tiresome. I look at them as DAP SuperCyberbullies hogging the English media space be it in print or in ether.
The fact that the nationalistic Malays (the Azran-type Malays not counted) are unable to carve a media space for themselves in English – language is a factor here because the international newsmen are not likely to read in BM or Utusan – in order to defend the Malay position in nation-building indicates to me that Malays are by and large being bullied by the Scissorati.
I earlier highlighted one factual error – the “53% popular vote” mention – in the article ‘The Chinaman’s Burden‘. Please click and read for yourself.
And here’s another error from his article. He said: “Chinese community contributes 90% of the national income tax and 60% of Malaysia’s national income.”
His kind of articles perpetuating these kind of inaccuracies while whinging, whinging and whinging make me wonder if the Scissorati are being very successful in their monopoly as well as carrying out their browbeating agenda.
