The MCA sec-gen is Kong Cho Ha.
A J-Star reporter covering his story yesterday tweeted “donkey kong ‘cha“.
See screenshot of Tashny Sukumaran’s tweet below.
The same Star report covered Adnan Yaakob.
The Pahang Menteri besar had earlier complained about the lack of participation by the Chinese in his state’s Hari Malaysia (Sept 16) events where even in the dance performance, there were no Chinese taking part and thus necessitating Malay children to dress up in the Chinese costumes.
The J-Star responded with an article headlined ‘MCA lashes out at Pahang MB‘ and quoting Kong Cho Ha’s reply to the charges made by Adnan.
According to the blog Khabar Pahang, Adnan had commented that the number of Chinese present at the Pahang national day celebration could be counted on the fingers of the hand (“boleh dibilang dengan jari”).
The J-Star reporter apparently took offence at Adnan’s remarks.
Khabar Pahang reported Adnan’s retort to the reporter as follows:
‘… TAK BOLEH SAYA KATA ORANG CINA TAK DATANG?’
According to the Twitter time stamp, Tashny – whose article covered Kong Cho Ha’s response to Adnan – had also tweeted “monyet monyet monyetttttttt” within two minutes of her “donkey kong” tweet (see screenshot below).
For the Twitter thread timeline involving Tashny and Brian Yap (another J-Star byline), please see preceding article ‘J-Star tuduh Adnan Yaakob bersifat perkauman‘.
I’ve mentioned before that the J-Star is a nest of Dapsters. Its reporters are very hostile to the BN and highly contemptuous of the MCA.
The virulent pro-DAP sentiments at the newspaper is reflective of the nationwide trend showing an estimated 90 percent Chinese as well as strong middle-class, English-speaking urban Indian support for the opposition.
MCA has totally lost it.
Recently, the Chinese party suspended the membership of its several division chairmen for their internal sabotage of the party — Serdang division chairman and deputy, Dato’ Liew Yuen Keong and Dato Ho Hee Lee respectively, Seremban division chairman Dato’ Peter Lai Yit Fei, Batu Gajah division deputy chairman-cum-BN coordinator for Tronoh Dato’ Lee Kon Yin and MCA Youth Penampang division vice chairman Jack Leow,
Serdang, Seremban, Tronoh and Batu Gajah are seats won by the DAP in GE13 whereas Penampang is won by PKR. MCA’s own men had helped the DAP candidate Ong Kian Ming to win in Serdang.
The suspensions are only the tip of the iceberg. The destructive streak within the MCA runs deep.
Essentially MCA is now turned rogue. The party nerve centre has been severed and quite incapable of exerting any kind of control anymore over the acts detrimental to the BN that are being carried out by its own leadership, members and media machinery.
It is no longer possible to rein the rogue elements in.
If in May 1969, insults had been hurled by the street protesters and those attending the many oppostion public gatherings held during the election campaign period, today the situation is much worse.
Over the last few years, the insults have been steadily peaking in the social media (Facebook, Twitter, chain mail, and other apps) where the DAP is king.
The Scissorati and the Jerusubang network are among the most insultingly venomous.
Considering that Scissorati are on the MCA payroll and the Jerusubang network is most ardently promoted by the Star Media Group, consequently the position of the MCA in the BN has become untenable.
This is an urgent issue that must be raised by the Umno delegates when they meet at their upcoming general assembly.
