Who does The Star speak on behalf of?
When Utusan carried the headline ‘Apa lagi Cina mahu?’, the Malay broadsheet was immediately pounced upon as racist.
Utusan is a kampung paper in the eyes of the DAP supporters. Kampung voters are dungu in the eyes of the DAP supporters because they vote BN.
The J-Star is an urban paper. Urban voters are smart and sophisticated in the eyes of the DAP supporters because they vote Pakatan.
If Utusan represents the Malay kampung voice, then whose voice does The J-Star represent?
The Sneaky Star spinning for whom?
MCA’s Air Hitam MP Wee Ka Siong was reported in Malaysiakini to have told the Dewan Rakyat yesterday:
“Things like ‘asalkan bukan Cina’ cannot be used. If not, we will lose their support for sure during the next general election.”
The former Deputy Education Minister is in denial. There is now precious little Chinese support left for the BN to lose.
And The J-Star doesn’t even bother with the pretense of featuring MCA in its pages anymore.
“Deep racial sentiment”
The ‘Dah Ikhwan’ blog has an interesting take on the Chinese tsunami.
Dah Ikhwan wrote that the Chinese giving 90% of their votes to the opposition was “a strong manifestation of a deep racial sentiment”.
The blogger also cautioned “DAP and the Red Beans Army better stop under-rating the Malay intelligence”.
Dah Ikhwan blogged the day before yesterday:
“You better be honest in what you are fighting for and find a win win formula without threat to the Malay political dominance, otherwise the Chinese will always be at the losing end …”
According to Dah Ikhwan, the Malays “get more united behind Umno and BN when they sense political threat from the Chinese”.
The GE13 results in Perak, Kedah and Johor bear out Dah Ikhwan’s premise of increasing Malay unity consequent to the Chinese political onslaught.
What is behind the denials?
MCA Youth chief Wee Ka Siong has slammed the Buy Chinese Last campaign which uses the tagline ‘Asalkan bukan Cina’ which mimics the ABU campaign of ‘Asalkan bukan Umno’.
“ABU! ABU! ABU!” is a chant that is constantly on the lips of the opposition supporters, particularly the DAP Chinese.
However what is good for the goose is not goose for the gander.
Even though MCA is the second most senior partner in the BN, the Chinese party and the media it controls The J-Star has not complained that the slogan ‘Asalkan bukan Umno’ “cannot be used” else the Malays rasa tersinggung.
But Wee Ka Siong complained in Parliament that ‘Asalkan bukan Cina’ “cannot be used” as it will alienate the Chinese.
Tsunami, what tsunami?
The campaign to boycott Chinese products arose in retaliation to the direction the Chinese votes went.
MCA owes an explanation to its partners in the BN as well as to the 5.2 million-strong electorate who gave their endorsement to the BN on 5 May 2013 on why 90 percent of the Chinese votes went to the opposition.
The repeated and prolonged denial of the Chinese tsunami in the MCA-owned J-Star is an insult to the intelligence of BN supporters.
And now MCA’s Wee Ka Siong has brought to Parliament the same berani buat tak berani tanggung attitude of the newspaper owned by his party.
Wee is displaying the same turpitude shown by the newspaper controlled by his party — baling batu sorok tangan.
Apa lagi DAP mahu?
What does the DAP want? Obviously more power.
Less than a fortnight after polling day, the DAP was already embarked on its voter registration drive (see Hannah Yeoh screenshot above).
The DAP efforts to register Chinese and Christian voters bore fruit in Gelang Patah.
In 2004 Gelang Patah had 70,023 voters, and in 2008 the Parliamentary constituency had 78,676 voters. However in 2013, Gelang Patah recorded a quantum leap to number 106,726 voters and in the process delivering a handy victory to Lim Kit Siang.
Over the last five years when the DAP was busy planning and plotting to earn the success that it did in GE13, the MCA was stealthily assisting the DAP to succeed.
The MCA-owned and MCA-controlled newspaper has been a major promoter of the DAP propaganda, for e.g. “colour blind” as well as a major publicity machine for the DAP evangelist politicians.
A day after her voter registration drive, Hannah Yeoh met up with UiTM students (photo above).
While the DAP is infiltrating the Malay campuses, the mosques and trekking into the kampungs, the MCA is quietly lending a hand.
MCA permits the media conglomerate that it owns and controls to cover up for the DAP politicians whenever they are caught with their pants down, in addition to giving all the promotion and publicity to raise the public image of the evangelistas.
The end game
What is the ultimate conclusion to the DAP acquiring more and more and more power?
The party sec-gen said it himself in an open letter to members following their triumph in GE12 — DAP is aiming for the Putrajaya crown.
And they are marching to the administrative capital riding on the best election machinery there is.
DAP claims that they cannot even afford to pay a single cybertrooper. Ya lor, who needs paid commenters on Facebook when ‘DAP’s biggest social media network is The Star‘.
Today a regular reader of this blog tells me that “DAP [is featured] on Pages 2 and 14 or more in the Star”. He says he was “looking high and low for some mention of the MCA. There were none”.
MCA is now MIA in its own newspaper.
What is the MCA’s hidden agenda in allowing the Scissorati running the overt (Battlestar Galactica) and covert (Stop the Lies, etc) operations to undermine the BN?
