Ali Rustam Syndrome: Boy oh boy, is BN in trouble!

I must confess that despite having earlier explored some of the Chinese tsunami results with regard to several pivotal constituencies earlier, I was nonetheless somewhat taken aback by the Bukit Katil (Mohd Ali Rustam’s losing bid for a Parliament seat in Malacca) figures crunched today.

The impact of the Chinese vote swing is much harder than I’d thought as well as the position of BN – make that the PPTA, Parti-Paling-Tidak-Apa Umno – in the next election is more precarious that we’ve yet to register.

In my previous posting titled ‘Ali Rustam dan tipu helah kaum Cina‘ I estimated that the incumbent Malacca Menteri Besar garnered roughly over 70 percent of the Malay votes. The man would himself possess the far more precise numbers as his polling agents have the details from the Saluran (voter streams).

In any case, Ali Rustam is adamant that his defeat should be attributed to the almost total rejection by the Chinese electorate.

Among the primary factors that would have had an effect on the outcome is the young voter pool. Some 46 percent of registered voters in Bukit Katil were under 40 years of age. Thus close to half of Bukit Katil voters are the youth (“youth” definition according to the age ceiling set by our major political parties’ Youth wing membership).

For the record, Ali Rustam did not lose too badly. In GE12 (2008), his predecessor the Umno man Md Sirat Abu won with a fairly slim majority of 1,758 votes over PKR rival Khalid Jaafar.

In GE13, PKR’s Shamsul Iskandar Akin pulled a majority of 5,447 over Ali Rustam.

4 DUNs under Bukit Katil

  • Bachang: DAP Chinese candidate vs Gerakan Chinese candidate (DAP wins with majority of 2,672 votes)
  • Ayer Keroh: DAP Chinese vs MCA (DAP wins / majority 7,943)
  • Bukit Baru: Umno vs PAS (PAS wins / majority 48)
  • Ayer Molek: Umno vs PAS (Umno wins / majority 3,761)

From the results above, we can see that Ali Rustam took the biggest hit in the DUN where the MCA man suffered a massive loss.

The MCA guy lost more votes in a state constituency than Ali Rustam did in his constituency at Parliamentary level.

Altogether, Pakatan collected a total of 46,909 votes from the four DUNs under Bukit Katil. Of the Pakatan votes, 32,622 or 69.5 percent (let’s round up to 70%) were cast for the two DAP candidates.

Meanwhile the four BN candidates collectively garnered 40,007 votes.

So the DUN numbers are: BN (40,007) vs Pakatan (46,909)

Compare the Parliament numbers: Ali Rustam-Umno (40,720) vs Shamsul Akin-PKR (46,167)

Interesting, eh?

Ali Rustam is slightly more popular than the combination of the four BN DUN candidates while Shamsul is a wee bit less popular than the combination of the four Pakatan DUN candidates.

The above pattern does not indicate that the results obtained by Ali Rustam deviated in any way from the general trend. In other words, Ali Rustam should NOT be blamed for any personal unpopularity because his defeat is a collective BN failing, and rests most heavily on the MCA’s shoulders for losing by the biggest margin.

Hence it is incorrect for Lim Kit Siang and his konco-konco to make as if Ali Rustam suffered from any fatal flaw of personality.

On the other hand, the Bukit Katil result reflected the Chinese tsunami.

How much Chinese support left in GE14?

Ali Rustam was obviously caught unawares.

Najib Razak’s con-sultants too must have been feeding the PM with false reassurances right up to polling day.

What we can now see with the benefit of hindsight is that Bukit Katil, a 53% Malay seat on the peninsula west coast was still conceded to the opposition going on the premise that 85% of the Chinese votes went against the BN and 70% of the Malay votes going with Umno.

Now imagine the next election with 90%-95% of the Chinese votes going to the oppo (and why not, with the hate and incitement churned by the Evangelista Bintang Tiga on a daily basis).

Unique to Malacca, there is the tiny factor of the serani votes but overall, there would be a bigger shift of the Christian votes to the opposition. Then again, Umno keeps pissing off the Hindu Indians too. More loss.

Plus there will be the huge increase of youth votes. Nice. For Pakatan I mean since their people are all younger and they’re more digital communication and media savvy.

After all, here we have the Umno Youth chief hiring Dapsters to help move the young votes along … to the oppo’s side of the fence … and plus the baby Dapsters are lean, mean fighting machines.

You’re all aware how Tony Pua menganjingkan the ROS and dissed the Appeal Court judges. Well let me tell you that Tony Pua’s proteges – the DAP evangelista interns – do the sifu proud. For such greenhorns, their viciousness is most laudable — from the ‘Kuburkan Umno’ standpoint view, that is.

NST reported that 54 of the 222 Parliament seats are dominated by Felda settlers. And it is here that Umno’s strength lies. But how safe is Felda as the long-term fixed deposit for Umno? And what if Felda makes Malays unhappy the next 4 years?

If 70 percent Malays supported Umno and Ali Rustam still lost, how much higher must BN up their game in GE14?

Red is the Pakatan share of the pie chart, yah

I hope that it has sunk into Umno’s tidak-apa-asyik-tidur-very-thick skull that once they lose federal to the DAP-led opposition, the BN will NEVER, E.V.E.R. get their power back. My home state Selangor is a testament to this where the BN is in shambles.

  1. Even CNN’s Fareed Zakaria knows it.
    http://www.nst.com.my/nation/general/najib-may-now-set-his-legacy-1.382758

    “Even Chinese in Malaysia don’t have that fascination (to China). People are talking about the Chinese migrating from Malaysia but they don’t go to China.

    “They go to Australia, Singapore, or the United States. They’re not going ‘back’ to China.”

    The Chinese in Malaysia are very high class. They certainly do not want to mix with the low class natives of China who spit and pass motion in the open.

    1. I always wondered about this people who move to Australia or the US. Since they obviously hate the NEP, it also implies that they are willing to sacrifice all their cultural and religious rights for the sake of economic equality, would the Chinese in Malaysia do the same by willing to re-negotiate with the bumis to get their “economic rights” in exchange to losing Chinese schools, papers, TV stations, newspapers, etc ?

      1. nolah…

        they would give up everything for money… going to down under or the USofA, its the money that counts. they just couldn’t get more ringgit here, then better off go to the land of the white.

    2. This has nothing to do about race. The Indian, the Pakistani, the middle east people, the China Chinese, the African all strive to migrate to these countries as well. The Afghanistan, Iranian are even risking their life to Australia. Even the Malay who got JPA scholarships and have job in UK / US, refuse to come back as well despite their commitment.

      1. Dear Malaysian,

        You’re saying the emigration to the USA, Australia and other developed white countries “has nothing to do about race”, is it? So it’s about economic advancement of the migrant lah, correct?

        Then why is it that your DAP leaders keep accusing Umno of chasing away the smart Chinese talents through racial discrimination policies if emigration to the West really “has nothing to do about race” but everything to do with higher pay and better career prospects?

        1. Actually these people migrate but keep the Malaysian citizenship as insurance when the US, Australia etc kick them out.
          I know of one woman who goes to Australia to find a white husband. Then she starts claiming social security there. She gets pregnant, has kids and when the kids grow up, the husband divorces her, she goes back to Malaysia.

          By the way she says Malaysia is a racist country. She uses this country as insurance and Australia is dumb enough to give her lots of social security. She is ethnic Chinese. Malaysian, now Aussie, and soon to be re-Malaysian Chinese.

          Dear malaysian,
          I hope you got better morals and will not sink that low like that woman.

          1. And a friends who get a French citizenship, then applied for UK citizenship and work there. During his UK days he said how low class Malaysia was compared to UK and french. He also proudly inform us how proudly he was when he officially not a citizen of lowly Malaysia.,

            Now he applied for singapore citizenship which if granted he said he will apply to be a Malaysian again. All of that after getting fired a couple of month ago

            :] sarah

            1. In short squeeze Malaysia then Australia then Malaysia again. Clever isn’t it. It is not that the Malay is dumb enough for them to exploit so is Australia.
              When a foreign woman marries a Malaysian she wants Malaysian citizenship. When a Malaysian Chinese woman marries a foreigner she keeps her Malaysian citizenship like her husband will dump her. She will also promote how awful Malaysia is.
              Do you see any Mainland Chinese woman want to keep her PRC citizenship when she marries a Malaysian? Or any Pinoy, Viet, Indian etc?
              Double standard isn’t it?

            2. Lets not forget of a Penang Langs who had gone to the UK thinking that they are still the subject of Her Majesty-Straits Settlement, only to be told that he was not!

              How many of them are they in the UK right now, and how many of them had to balik racist Malaysia, simply because other country won’t grant them easy-pintu-belakang-citizenship?

              Only in Malaysia. I rephrase, ‘Only in racist Malaysia!’

              The British and Mat Sallehs in general may be telling us a lot on how to behave like a exemplary world citizen, but they sure won’t be the first to walk the talk! Lets not be naive shall we?

              1. Re. How many of them are they in the UK right now, and how many of them had to balik racist Malaysia, simply because other country won’t grant them easy-pintu-belakang-citizenship?

                I have one this year, just got back…

                or this :

                Malaysians left ‘stateless’ in UK after passport gamble backfires
                Nearly 1,000 Malaysians are living in the UK in “stateless” limbo after tearing up their passports in expectation of winning British citizenship.

                By Ian MacKinnon in Bangkok

                They had hoped that by renouncing their Malaysian citizenship, they would qualify for a British passport.

                Instead, some now find themselves doing menial jobs far beneath their qualifications as they are classed as illegal migrants.

                http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/malaysia/6316612/Malaysians-left-stateless-in-UK-after-passport-gamble-backfires.html

                or ask any Malaysian in Singapore with PR whether they want to give up their Malaysian citizenship.

                1. LOL, what I can’t tahan about these people is that they simply thinks that they are better than all of us, simply because, they are living in the 1st world and averagely earning much more than us.

                  The worst is when they balik Malaysia ramai2, trying to overthrow UMNO, thinking that they can, and being so disappointed and bitter, like any sore loser would, and say things like, I had lost hope for Malaysia and Malaysians in general for not wanting to Ubah.

                  I was like, how dare, you who had only parachuted yourself few days before the GE13, some more wanted to teach us on how should we be living our daily lives in thousand of miles from where you are living yours?

                  How arrogant is that? Just because you now, lives among the Mat Sallehs, does not make you into one already. And stop behaving as if you are our past colonial masters come into life.

                  And sure, why not, lets lose hope on Malaysia and please get you stinky arse, to where you have come from. We surely don’t need you here. Enough of being a parasite already. And please don’t ever come back, especially if you haven’t learn a thing or two on being respectful from being in the 1st world.

            3. Re. Now he applied for singapore citizenship which if granted he said he will apply to be a Malaysian again. All of that after getting fired a couple of month ago.

              You should expose him Sarah…I know for a fact that once you give up your Malaysian citizenship that will be the end of it.

              I have two cases with me now about people who keep complaining about this country yet they are here “illegally”. One is a “Mat Salleh” who has a Singapore PR but has been living here for a long time by abusing his social visa. He runs his own company in Singapore and open another one here in Kuala Lumpur. Since he can’t get the work permit here and has been applying for PR since the 1990’s to no avail, he has been using his social visa to stay here in this country and every 2 months or so he will go back to Singapore.

              The other is a Malaysian Chinese who hold dual citizenship Malaysia and the US. He has been back here since 2000. I have not seen him for a while.

        2. I agreed with you but DAP is not wrong either.

          Every years a big number of top students are not given the tertiary education opportunity due to quota. The whole butch of students from CIS are not accepted in public universities as well. SO where are all these student gone? Singapore basically is built on Malaysian talent.

          Again Malaysia is run with raced based politic principle. You can’t expect the non Malay accept everything and every blame on them whole heartedly while the UMNO is playing race and religion card.

          In those countries I quoted better economical prospect is a push factor but in Malaysia, in additional of this, disappointment due to rejection of own education system because ok skin colour factor is also another factor.

          1. re: “You can’t expect the non Malay accept everything and every blame on them whole heartedly while the UMNO is playing race and religion card.”

            Okay. Fair enough.

            Can you pls pinpoint/specify what we’re being unfairly blamed for when the Umno is playing race and religion card?

            1. Ada cina memang suka baling batu sembunyi tangan, tuduh mangsa yg baling kearah diri sendiri..

          2. Malaysian,

            Please read the following of the future of your SINGAPORE EXCEL…

            Kuan Yew says happy to rejoin Malaysia if…
            Thu, Oct 11, 2007
            Bernama

            SINGAPORE, Oct 11 (Bernama) – Some 10 years after remarking that Singapore might rejoin Malaysia if the island state’s economy faltered and if Malaysia pursued meritocracy, Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew has again spoken on the subject.

            “They have got all the resources. If they would just educate the Chinese and Indians, use them and treat them as their citizens, they can equal us and even do better than us and we would be happy to rejoin them,” Lee said.

            Lee made the remark in an interview on Sept 27 with syndicated columnist Tom Plate of the UCLA Media Center and new-media expert Jeffrey Cole of the USC Annenberg School Center for the Digital Future.

            The transcript of the interview is available online on the UCLA Asia Institute website.

            In June 1996, Lee spoke about the possibility of Singapore rejoining Malaysia, raising a storm on both sides of the Causeway with then Malaysian prime minister Datuk Seri (now Tun) Dr Mahathir Mohamad saying that he did not think that the time had come for that yet.

            Dr Mahathir had also described the remark as just a means “to jolt Singaporeans” into their senses.

            – MORE

            The latest remarks by the Singapore founding father came after he was asked about Singapore’s “sense of endangerment” and why the island state was worried about survivability in the long run.

            Lee replied: “Where are we? Are we in the Caribbean? Are we next to America like the Bahamas? Are we in the Mediterranean, like Malta, next to Italy? Are we like Hong Kong, next to China and therefore, will become part of China?

            “We are in Southeast Asia, in the midst of a turbulent, volatile, unsettled region. Singapore is a superstructure built on what? On 700 square kilometres and a lot of smart ideas that have worked so far – but the whole thing could come undone very quickly”.

            To a question on who would come after Singapore, Lee replied: “When (Malaysia) kicked us out (in 1965), the expectation was that we would fail and we will go back on their terms, not on the terms we agreed with them under the British.

            “Our problems are not just between states, this is a problem between races and religions and civilizations.

            – MORE

            “We are a standing indictment of all the things that they can be doing differently. They have got all the resources. If they would just educate the Chinese and Indians, use them and treat them as their citizens, they can equal us and even do better than us and we would be happy to rejoin them,” he said.

            Analysts here do not see any possibility of a Malaysia-Singapore merger.

            “The chances of a re-merger in 1996 and in 2007 are the same – zero,” said Dr Ooi Kee Beng, coordinator of the Malaysia study programme at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies and best-selling author of ‘The Reluctant Politician: Tun Dr Ismail and His Time’.

            “The very idea of a re-merger on Singapore’s terms is appalling to most Malays (in Malaysia) and any move in that direction would be political suicide for a Malaysian politician to take,” Dr Ooi told Today newspaper.

            1. We already had our endless sets of problems with Singapore wanna be, surely we don’t need real Singaporeans to give a new sets of problem plak.

              LKY tak payah nak perasan as if Malaysia terhegeh-hegeh nak merge dengan Singapore! They should join Indonesia instead via Batam!

              1. Strange isn’t it that they not even thinking of combining their country with Indonesia??? Come to think of it, only Malaysia, Malaysia, Malaysia when they thinking combining their country with.

                :P sarah

                1. Malaysia had a lot to offer la Sarah, apa lagi. Geng2 kiasus kalau rugi mau ke?

                  Lagipun LKY tahu kalau merge ngan Indonesia, nama dia akan jadi Lewan Kayuhitono, mana dia mau!

                    1. Sarah and Islam1st,

                      Both of you should start writing about ISMA focusing on Muslim Malays voters in Penang. Looking at the statistics there is a high chance for the Muslim Malays to wrestle over Penang from the DAP. I have given the statistics somewhere in here.

  2. Helen,

    The main problem i am afraid is Najib himself. Najib right until election this year (May 2013) exhibited the attitude the Malays see as demeaning:TERHEGEH HEGEH.

    So desperate to woo the Chinese to the point that he insulted himself by appearing in Chinese New Year advertisement, much to the dismay of Malay community. It sent wrong message to Chinese. And the wrong message is that they alone determines the outcome of election.

    Dr Mahathir already cautioned Najib by advising to concentrate to the communities that supported BN. But Najib rejected the time tested wisdom. At the end, Najib was soundly rejected by the Chinese.

    Your analysis on Bukit Katil is not surprising. In Ampang, UMNO earns approximately 70% of Malay votes. But it lost entirely the non Malay votes. The same thing happened in Hulu Kelang.

    The movement of Malay community was less pronounced. UMNO manages to hold the fort. In fact increases its share in Parliament. But still it does not go all out reaching Malay youths.

    Almost all of Malay youth whom i met(less than 30 years old) were simply dumbfounded when I narrated therm how Anwar Ibrahim joined UMNO and how he took over from Tun Abdullah Badawi, then Penang UMNO Chairman who was instrumental in getting Anwar supported by UMNO Penang way back in 1982.

    And I notice all of them were simply speechless when I told them that in 1990 election, UMNO lost all 45 seats in Kelantan DUN.

    My point is that the election while not “sempurna” has delivered and working. If UMNO wants to “manipulate”, it would have gotten Kelantan years ago.

    Because UMNO does not try very hard to reach to youths, UMNO tends to lose out.

    Naturally being in opposition (for youngster) are seen as “macho”. Supporting the government of the day is seen as “less adventourous, boring”.

    The perception must change. And in order to change, credible young UMNO Pemuda and Puteri must play a part. I believe Dr Fathul Bari, known for Islamic credential beside having a PhD, can deliver.

    see. Mukhriz created a stir when he led a congregational prayer. It breaks the perception that PAS has an upper hand when it comes to religion.

    PAS members are simply astonished to see the man led the prayers. They have been going around for decade slandering Tun as anti Islam.

    AS FOR UMNO, forget at all chinese votes. send the message that while UMNO loves to have chinese backing, it will not “minta sedekah” the way Najib did.

    Chinese must be reminded just as they can choose, so does the government (meaning UMNO) of the day.

    1. re: “So desperate to woo the Chinese to the point that he insulted himself by appearing in Chinese New Year advertisement, much to the dismay of Malay community.”

      Are you sure that the Malay community is dismayed by Najib wearing a Chinese shirt and beating Chinese drums?

      When the shoe is on the other foot, I do not see that many among the Chinese community are dismayed by their DAP evengelistas wearing tudung, bersahur and camping in the mosques and surau.

      1. Of course they won’t show their dismay.

        They are all playing along with the lie that Pakatan components are at harmony with each other. Tahaluf siyasi.

        PAS and PKR reluctance to go against DAP in important issues just proves that Pakatan’s real strength is with the DAP pulling in Chinese votes while they can’t do the same with Malay and Indian votes.

        UMNO’s GE13 strategy of trying to woo the Chinese while being overconfident that the Malay majority wouldn’t dare let the Pakatan win seems to show that UMNO thinks so too.

        Probably a good strategy, but since the Chinese probably aware that DAP’s people antics of being in touch with the Islamic and Malay Pakatan supporters are merely ruses, then Najib’s similar tactic with his chinese drumming and ah jib goring would definitely rub them off the wrong way.

        1. So the Chinese are willing to go with the evangelista (tudung, #sahur) flow but the Malays are upset that Ah Jib Gor wears a Chinese shirt on CNY (?)

          If like that then who’s better at playing politics, neh?

          1. The politicians, who else?

            IMO the Chinese voters really believed that PAS and PKR would deliver on their part and GE13 would be the time that DAP marches in on federal government.

            I don’t think the Pakatan politicians expect that would happen.

            Otherwise they wouldn’t be prepared with concocted bullshit like blackouts and 40 000 imported bangla voters and what else.
            Those are merely excuses prepared beforehand by people who thinks they wouldn’t win.

            After all UMNO’s efforts, even if the Chinese rejected they have shown that they have at least tried but it was still the Chinese that rejected them. Sure, some of the Malays wouldn’t be pleased with his favoring Chinese, but it’s just that the alternative of DAP led Pakatan is a much worse nightmare.

            People other than hopeless hardcore PAS/PKR supporters can see that DAP’s the real boss in Pakatan and DAP’s a Chinese party. The Malays have a lot of examples to see from like the bintang tiga, the May 13 riots, even the current southern small island neighbor.

            It doesn’t help that Pakatan and non Muslims are trying to stir the hornets more and more with their issues, with people like the Catholic Church, Dap, liberal communist glorifiers and others, UMNO doesn’t need to create bogeymen, they supply themselves.

            On the other hand, UMNO is probably already been infiltrated by opposition supporters or at least people playing both sides for their own benefit. Probably advising Najib or planning to replace him later, haha.

            The politicians now don’t think of the people. The thing that matters are seats and the power/wealth it confers, and trying to stay on that seat as long as they could.

            The greatest prize is of course the federal government and PM seat.

            1. re: “UMNO is probably already been infiltrated by opposition supporters”

              Kat sini,

              Menara KBS,
              No.27 Persiaran Perdana,
              Presint 4, 62570 Putrajaya

          2. ‘the Malays are upset that Ah Jib Gor wears a Chinese shirt on CNY (?)’

            When he did it, the Malays, UMNO and PAS (not sure about Melayu PKR, though) hate it because they think it was a waste of money and simply don’t buy that the Gomen had not pay for PSY super expensive fees.

            When he was booed (NO TO BN!), by the Chinese as highlighted by blogs and youtube, the Malays, UMNO and PAS, says among themselves, padan muka. Terhegeh-hegeh sangat.

            Me saying, Majlis Raya also, no Siti Nurhaliza in sight, belting few songs for the tetamu. Why double standard? PSY wor! how many Siti Nurhaliza you can get with that amount of fees?

            And when he showed that he can actually main gendang Cina and probably should join the local Lion Dance Troupe on his spare time, and not to mention appear in a first ever Chinese New Year greetings, how racist is that, the Melayu, the India and the other Bumiputra and not to mention the Orang Asli also no TV ads for their respective festivities.

            How much more the Gomen spent to produce and aired the Raya Cina TV ads? Surely not as cheap as his, usual, Hari Raya greetings!

            And when he wanted to give free Tanglungs too, with Mandarin tweets some more, I thought I was a citizen of the PRoC, and was prepare to abdicate myself with Ai Wei Wei for tanah air sake.

            If some still thinks it was his gesture for 1Malaysia, please tell me, how the PM does not tweet in Tamil or Iban for that matter. Correct me if I’m wrong, did he?

            So Helen, the terhegeh-hegeh is very annoying, I actually wanted Muhyiddin to take over as we speaks.

          3. “So the Chinese are willing to go with the evangelista (tudung, #sahur) flow but the Malays are upset that Ah Jib Gor wears a Chinese shirt on CNY (?) If like that then who’s better at playing politics, neh?”

            True. And it just demonstrates even more that the Chinese have no qualms about lying to achieve their goals. The Malays, on the other hand, do. The Malays have a saying: kalau tak menipu, bukan Cina. And thier behaviour during the various big makans and concerts simply prove that even more.

            It’s about honesty and integrity, Helen. Both traits are of primary importance to the Malays. Based on the Islamic religion, duplicity is frowned upon.

      2. Helen,

        Yup. Because they felt Najib is “terhegeh hegeh’. And their prediction turn out to be the truth. Najib was soundly rejected.

        The message that Najib sent(before election) was that he really valued the Chinese and everything about the Chinese. To the point that he neglected the Malays. He did not feel necessary to appear in advertisement greeting “Selamat Hari raya’

        I did not know who advised him. What i know was that UMNO members just before the election already predicted that Najib will be soundly rejected by Chinese community. I am not surprise. My mother in law said the same thing.

        “when the shoe…”

        The reason is simple actually. Despite Najib trying so much, he was soundly rejected. While DAP due to its ability to make PAS submits to it( by using Arabic term Tahaluf siyasi) was succesful in penetrating an institution that is integral among Malay/Muslim community: mosques and surau. No thanks to PAS, DAP is now able to ‘preach” to Muslims in the mosques.

        and in the process reduces PAS clout among the Malays. And at the same time brings Malays closer to UMNO.

        1. re: “DAP is now able to ‘preach” to Muslims in the mosques. and in the process reduces PAS clout among the Malays. And at the same time brings Malays closer to UMNO.”

          But DAP penetrating Umno too.

            1. On the dot. Penang CM and his 3 stooges on a banner titled ‘Amal Makruf Nahi Mungkar’. Flip Flopping with their own faith, got me a neighbour who burns ‘gaharu’ comes out front door praying while looking at the sky., and says he is a christian. It looks like they even gamble with faith, trying three simultaneously so the chances is more to get it right.

      3. Re: “Are you sure that the Malay community is dismayed by Najib wearing a Chinese shirt and beating Chinese drums?
        When the shoe is on the other foot, I do not see that many among the Chinese community are dismayed by their DAP evengelistas wearing tudung, bersahur and camping in the mosques and surau.”

        Saya percaya ramai melayu tak akan ambil pusing pun pemimpin mana nak pakai cheongsam, hatta kalau mereka nak pakai hari-hari ke pejabat pun. Berkaitan Najib bercheongsam dan memukul gendang tu, pada kami ia bukan sekadar baju dan gendang sahaja tetapi lebih kepada “aksi membodek” kaum Cina yang berlebih-lebihan. Hidung tak mancung, pipi tersorong-sorong. Orang memang tak suka, tapi kita yang terhegeh-hegeh minta disayang!

        Sama juga dengan situasi bila satu keluarga Najib, siap dengan bakal menantu “ngeteh” di kedai tepi jalan menjelang PRU lepas. Nampak plastik bila mereka yang biasanya berlegar-legar Cafe mewah, tiba-tiba muncul di situ. Hipokrasi tahap infiniti.

        Sebaliknya masyarakat Cina evangelista mungkin tak kisah, tak ambil pusing bila HY dan TNC bertudung ke sana ke mari, bila OKM turut berpuasa sebab bagi mereka matlamat menghalalkan cara! Apalah sangat berlapar sekejap, lenguh tangan nak betulkan selendang, asalkan hasrat politik mereka tercapai.

  3. Helen is right…

    1. Chinese Christian Votes are considered GONE FOREVER. PERIOD. Seperti kata Helen dulu andai 7 dulang hati nyamuk dihantar pun orang Cina TIDAK AKAN undi BN.

    2. UMNO/BN tidak boleh leka atau alpa mulai saat ini, mereka jangan ingat yang semua Melayu akan sokong UMNO/BN. Mulai dari sekarang Muslim-Malay-Centric mission must be pushed forward till polling day.

    3. Orang Melayu pula jangan hanya duduk menganga dan nak harap UMNO/BN buat kerja. Kita kena sama-sama menggembeling tenaga BERJIHAD untuk Islam, Melayu dan Malaysia melalui:

    a. Memastikan suku sakat kita yang layak mengundi, mendaftar dengan kadar segera, jangan tunggu last minute;

    b. Menerangkan pada mereka tentang betapa pentingnya undi mereka untuk umat Islam, Melayu dan Malaysia; saya berpendapat masyarakat Melayu Gelang Patah sekarang ini “MENYESAL TAK SUDAH” atas kelalaian dan sikap tidak apa mereka pada PRU13;

    c. Pastikan peratusan keluar mengundi kaum Melayu meningkat;

    d. Sebagaimana DAP memomokkan orang Cina Malaysia tentang kejahatan, kezaliman, dan sikap rasis Melayu, saya rasa tidak salah juga untuk kita Orang Melayu memomokkan orang Melayu tentang Sikap Hipokrit, Rasis, tidak tahu berterimakasih dan bongkak kaum cina;

    Apa tunggu lagi mula hantar email kepada semua kaum kerabat dan sahabat anda melalui saat ini. SAYA SENDIRI TELAH MELAKUKANNYA SELEPAS PRU13 dan akan terus melakukannya. Jangan anggap ini perbuatan rasis, sedangkan masyarakat Cina telah pun melakukannya dulu dan terus berusaha melakukannya.

    Akramshah and Azalina Othman Said, if you are reading this, this should be your platform going forward. The Chinese don’t need you, we need you to help push our agenda….

    1. LOL,

      Yup. I often asked friends what is the majority race in Penang. All of them said Chinese.

      Wrong. They were surprised. I told them there is no majority race in Penang. Malays and Chinese are almost equal in the of population with Chinese slightly higher percentage.

      BUT MAJORITY OF VOTERS IN PENANG is Chinese as thousands of Malays could not care less to register. As such more than 50% of voters in Penang is Chinese.

      1. Have a population transfer lah. Dapsters from elsewhere in the country move to Penang.

        Malays and Indians in Penang move out.

        Then Penang can be granted Independence and become the Republic of Singapore North. After all, both islands think they’re founded by white men — Francis Light and Stamford Raffles.

        1. Cuba bayangkan apa akan berlaku pada PRU14 kalau semua orang Melayu yang layak mengundi dan mendaftar sebagai pengundi ?

      2. Re. Wrong. They were surprised. I told them there is no majority race in Penang. Malays and Chinese are almost equal in the of population with Chinese slightly higher percentage.

        The following is the statistics based on percentage of ethnicity:

        Malay = 39.9%
        Other Bumi = 0.3%
        Chinese = 41.5 %
        Indian = 10%
        Others = 0.4%
        Non-Malaysian = 7.9%

        Click to access Penang_statistics_Q2_2012.pdf

        1. My blogger kawan had shared about this before the last GE13. Looking at the 10% Indian, we must also remember that, some Indian Muslims had been lump into this stat as well.

          Contrary to popular beliefs, Muslims is the majority in Penang.

          1. ISMA should take this opportunity to go down the ground in Penang and educate, inform, encourage and enforce the Malay Muslims to register as voters. If UMNO/BN still MCA to contest in the existing constituencies won by MCA in PRU14, ISMA should stand as independent and by then they already have the ground support.

            It is possible to wrestle Penang from the Chinese if Malay and other Bumi are united looking at the statistics.

              1. Yes. Ask them to focus in Penang as in “Impian Pulau Pinang PRU14”.

                Orang Melayu tak boleh nak terus-terus salahkan UMNO/BN bila kalah, sedangkan mereke sendiri tidak turut serta jadi pengundi majoritinya.

                I have an investment banker friend who is 40 plus year old and still not a registered voter. Can you beat that?

  4. Orang melayu akan kembali ke Umno jika korupsi yang melampau sekarang, bongkak sombong olih segelintir pemimpin Umno, kerakusan mengguna kuasa dapat disekat.

    Orang India dan Cina akan melihat BN kembali secara positif.

    Ingat bagaimana pengundi memberikan Pak Lah mandat yang padu bila beliau membuat janji membentras korupsi, gunakuasa dan kroni sebelum PRU11. Malangnya beliau mungkiri janjinya.

    1. Re. Orang melayu akan kembali ke Umno jika korupsi yang melampau sekarang, bongkak sombong olih segelintir pemimpin Umno, kerakusan mengguna kuasa dapat disekat.

      Macam yang ini yang dipuja oleh J-Star

  5. “Sebagaimana DAP memomokkan orang Cina Malaysia tentang kejahatan, kezaliman, dan sikap rasis Melayu, saya rasa tidak salah juga untuk kita Orang Melayu memomokkan orang Melayu tentang Sikap Hipokrit, Rasis, tidak tahu berterimakasih dan bongkak kaum cina;”

    Since the UMNO starts the blame game first, non Malay should not be afraid to unite and vote en bloc against UMNO again. Non Malay cannot be intimidated and extorted by the fanatic and extremist. We do not afraid even the fanatic want ethnic cleansing.

    1. Re. non Malay should not be afraid to unite and vote en bloc against UMNO again.

      You guys already did. Don’t try to spin …..when that happens tahulah nasib kau orang langit ni tinggi ke rendah…

  6. I agree with you Helen, Najib donning a Chinese suit shouldn’t be insulting to Malays. Such show of shared cultures is right and good.

    But I am more concerned of the fact that Najib did not show any balls in upholding certain facets of racial issues.

    If he thinks the Chinese said something malignant, he should hold up the shield and block it.

    If it came from a Malay, he should set any inflammatory statement straight.

    Any feedback should be addressed at the core, rather than temporarily plugging the hole of the problem.

    Pemandu has been attacked many times and what does he do? Distances himself from the line of fire.

    Come on, you are our leader. Have the balls to face issues and distinguish the flames before they burn everyone down.

    On the contrary, if you make courageous decisions to burn off bridges with corrupted colleagues, a whole new door of resources will open and warriors and fighters will come to your aid.

    1. “Pemandu has been attacked many times and what does he do? Distances himself from the line of fire.”

      Many of the attacks on Pemandu have been coming from the right-wing Mahathirist hawks in the Barisan Nasional.

      1. When the UMNO dogs (sorry for the term, that’s what they call us all anyway) try to draw the line for Najib and teams, their credibility were being put in questions by labelling them as right winger Mahathirist hawks.

        Mahathir was never a right winger. Some may had label him ultra Melayu, especially from the Cina chauvinist themselves, but the way I sees it, Tun M has always been a liberal.

        Isn’t that what PAS had been detesting him for all this years, labeling him as a secular, Ataturk no less, forever and wanting him to be a better Muslim or else should stop lead the country?

  7. Najib ran out of ideas already. His 1 Malaysia is rejected outright by racist Malays and Chinese. Perhaps it’s time to make way to new leader.

  8. You are right that Ah Jib Gor’s con-sultant gave him false info on what was going on the ‘ground’ and the matter of the fact is almost 52% wants BN to loose.

    Obviously Ah Jib Gor likes to keep people who will tell him what he likes to hear eventhough he knows that the con-sultant were 52% off their target of forecast. Mind you its not off by 5%+ or 5%- but 52% inaccurate forecast!!!!!

  9. Bukit Katil is a predominantly Malay area. Malays make up 53% of the electorate. The Chinese are only 41%. Yet, if we look at the results, Shamsul Iskandar from PKR received 53% of the votes.

    In the UMNO elections, the electorate was virtually 100 percent Malay. It is a racially homogeneous electorate. Yet he only won no more than 10 out of the over 190 division votes. That is around 5 percent.

    So how do you explain Ali Rustam’s performance within UMNO itself which was even worse than his Bukit Katil parliament run?

    1. re: “So how do you explain Ali Rustam’s performance within UMNO itself”

      What’s so difficult to explain? Zahid, Shafie, Hisham and Mukhriz are all more popular than him lah.

      1. So was Shamsul Iskandar of PKR. By around 6 percent.

        Meanwhile, we are always told that Ali Rustam had been a good Chief Minister to Melaka. Under his administration, Melaka attained a ‘developed state’ status. Or so we have been told.

        Even UMNO Melaka pushed him aside and did not vote for him in the party elections. So how?

        1. Ac-DC,

          No big deal. Ali Rustam is a good Chief Minister. The fact that more than 100000 attending to his child’s wedding is a manifestation of his popularity.

          Why people attended the wedding . Because Ali rustam never missed a wedding invitation.

          “Orang kampung berbesar hati bila Ketua menteri sendiri datang walaupun pukul 3 pagi “.

          But he lost UMNO VP election as his “zaman” is over.

          In Bukit katil, he lost despite winning 70% of malay votes. Simply because he is a from a party that committed “cardinal sin” . And the cardinal sin is by being a supremo. A Malay party to Chinese must be like PAS “melukut ditepi gantang”.

          1. “But he lost UMNO VP election as his “zaman” is over.”

            In more direct terms, the UMNO divisions dumped him once he was out of power.

            Even the Melaka UMNO divisions, did not “stand by their man”.

            So much for loyalty (kesetiaan) and gratitude (bersyukur) that UMNO always loves to lecture others on.

      2. Helen,

        Precisely.

        But the real reason why Ali Rustam failed in recent UMNO election is simply due to “zamannya sudah berakhir”.

        It is as simple as that. Nothing wrong about it. Nothing to be embarassed. Nothing sinful about it. It is law if human nature.
