… then the evangelical party will just take over the comatose MCA lah.
If we go by the last election vote count, social media users and the Scissorati, the DAP is popular while the MCA is not,
A total of 404,000 potential voters like DAP compared to only 27,000 who like MCA.
The line graph below is by PoliTweet which bills itself “a non-partisan research firm focused on Malaysian socio-politics in social media”.
It looks at Facebook ‘Likes’ from potential voters from April to the current month.
DAP is the most popular of all Malaysian political parties on Facebook — see topmost red line. They have a lot of paid troopers patrolling cyberspace to herd the flock to Jerusubang.
MCA is among the least popular — see second-most bottom orange line. They have a lot of paid reporters (the Scissorati) trolling cyberspace to also help herd the flock to the DAP greener pasture too.
The DAP has got the most politicians tweeting compared to their coalition partners.
Among the kind of tweets that the DAP itself sends out can be seen in the sample below:
The J-Star has been the most enthusiastic in promoting the said DAP Twitter trend.
Regina Lee recently left The J-Star to become Khairy Jamaluddin’s press secretary.
Below is an example of how a Scissorati tweets:
KJ’s “flipping skills”
Best friends forever
Niki Cheong (twit above) recently spearheaded The J-Star‘s Marilah Kita Sama-sama Berpuasa Sehari publicity stunt in the social media.
The BFF relationship between DAP evangelist pollies and The J-Star folks continues.
The J-Star three days ago appointed evangelista Wong Chun Wai as the Star Media Group acting CEO.
The MCA owns and controls the Star Media Group. Thus the appointment of Datuk Seri Wong as The Sneaky Star CEO means that the MCA endorses the evangelical direction and extra-curricular activities of the paper, which includes all the promotion that they have been doing for the DAP evangelistas.
In the form of The J-Star and its associated media activities, the MCA has already been melded into the DAP. Any merger between the two parties hence is merely a formality.
