Lim Kit Siang and his son Lim Guan Eng both issued separate press statements yesterday.
Kit Siang complains that in the past four years, he has been “repeatedly accused of being a communist by Umno cybertroopers on the Internet”. Well, the accusations by the Malay bloggers are wrong. DAP is not communist. DAP 3.0 today is a capitalist party.
PAS represents the rural constituency.
So, dear PAS people, please think about how the high class Developers Above People-DAP 3.0 treat poor Malays. As if the Kampung Buah Pala, Kampung Pokok Assam, Kampung Binjai and Kampung Genting evictions affecting Indians and Malays in Penang haven’t taught the Islamist party anything.
Anyone still remember how the DAP evangelista warlord Ngeh Koo Ham and his cousin Nga Kor Ming were awarded forest land by the PAS government?
Father, Son and Holy Hypocrites
Now with his 47 years in politics (Kit Siang puts his political career as beginning in 1966), what has he achieved?
Selling saliva only — “Liberty” lah, “Equality” lah, “Fraternity” lah … all from Western vocabulary.
As a side note, below is what Dr M has to say with regard to Kit Siang a week earlier:
“Pada 1964 saya jadi Wakil Rakyat. Kit Siang menjadi Setiausaha Politik kepada Devan Nair. Kemudian setelah PAP tidak dapat aktif lagi di Malaysia Kit Siang menubuh DAP dan menjadi ketuanya. Saya bersara 2003. Kit Siang belum bersara, masih ketua DAP dan menjadi wakil rakyat Gelang Patah. Bila Kit Siang akan bersara? Sampai mati kah? Jika sudah bersara nak jadi pemimpin kanan DAP kah?” (excerpt from the Che Det blog)
For the last half century, Kit Siang has been bleating on the same groove of ‘Malaysian Malaysia’, which has presently become ‘Malaysian First’ old wine in new bottle.
He is merely still leading his buffalo herd round and round in circles. And now his son’s evangelista coterie are doing the same — mencucuk hidung kerbau dan menarik tali orang PAS.
They provoke the Muslim-Christian conflict and at the same time, they make a show of conducting inter-faith dialogues and joint prayers.
“Battle for the hearts and minds”
Also in his press statement yesterday, Kit Siang railed against the “campaign of lies and falsehoods” as if he and his party are the biggest victims when in fact they are the biggest perpetrators.
Elaborating on his charge, the DAP stalwart said:
“I trace such lies and falsehoods against DAP and Pakatan Rakyat leaders to the increasing desperation of Umno and BN leaders, who find that they are losing out in the battle for the hearts and minds of Malaysians.”
DAP’s Malaysian Malaysia old guard – as represented by Karpal Singh – appear to be “confused” (our Word of the Week). He wants race parties de-registered but has nothing to say about race-based schools where the SRJK(C)s are almost 90 percent Chinese and the SRJK(T)s are 100 percent Indian.
The inconsistencies inherent in the Firster ideology are so glaring but yet the DAP is winning the battle for the hearts and minds. They’re winning because they run the best campaign of lies and falsehoods.
“Extremism, intolerance and bigotry”
And below is the standard shill which has been going round and round in DAP without UBAH through a five-decade loop:
“This is a measure of the desperation of Umno/BN propagandists which should give us all hope and confidence that the days of extremism, intolerance and bigotry are on their way out, so long as we are committed to stay the course of moderation, tolerance and reason for a Middle Malaysia to achieve the Malaysian Dream for all Malaysians.” (Kit Siang‘s speech at the DAP Veterans Club Fourth Congress in Butterworth yesterday morning)
I’ve extracted the quote above to highlight that the DAP Mursyidul Am has charged the pro-establishment side with “extremism, intolerance and bigotry” while at the same time trying to posit themselves as moderate, tolerant and reasonable.
Is PAS buying the DAP pitch about achieving “the Malaysian Dream for all Malaysians”? What will become of Malaysia if the DAP 3.0’s dream (“equality”) comes true? Will they eventually make the status of Christianity equal to that of Islam?
Over the kalimah Allah and hudud issues, haven’t the DAP and their supporters been portraying Muslims as extremist, intolerant and bigots? Or are the DAP merely targetting “Umnoputras” as guilty of “extremism, intolerance and bigotry” while they excuse the PAS followers of the same?
“Umno’s racist ideology and extremist policies”
In his press statement yesterday, the DAP sec-gen said “… Umno are the masters and leaders from Sarawak and Sabah should be subservient to them” in the context of the relationship between Putrajaya and the Sarawak state government.
The DAP propaganda is that Umno is the ‘master’ and the rest of the BN components are ‘servants’ or as Guan Eng puts it, “it is Umno’s racist ideology and extremist policies that entitles Umno being masters whilst others must be subservient …”.
PAS should ask the DAP to define which “extremist policies” as well as specify what is the “racist ideology” that Umno practices.
Is it the NEP and its various permutations that are viewed as “extremist policies” by the DAP? Is the decision by Education Minister Muhyiddin Yassin to have Math and Science taught in Malay considered one of Umno’s “extremist policies”?
The DAP objects to the recently announced Bumiputera Economic Empowerment Programme. Hence, does DAP regard the RM31 billion BEEP as an extremist policy created on the basis of “racist ideology” since the funding will not benefit Chinese or Indians? Does PAS agree with the DAP on these criticisms? Does PAS reject BEEP?
More importantly, is the decision to build mosques but not to have the state lend support to the building of churches a part of Umno’s “racist ideology” too? Does PAS agree that in the name of Equality, a proportionately equal allocation be given to Christians to build new churches in Alor Setar, in Kuantan and elsewhere?
ABOVE: Number of seats held by DAP and PAS respectively in Parliament
Why the Chinese vote will never return to BN
The main grouse of the Chinese against MCA and Gerakan is that these two parties do not have an equal voice to Big Brother Umno in the BN.
Well, Umno has 88 Parliament seats to the MCA’s 7 seats. Let’s turn the tables: If DAP has 88 seats and PAS has 7 seats (won in Chinese-majority areas), would the DAP allow for PAS to have an equal say in Pakatan?
You already know whether PAS was given an exco seat or not in the DAP-led Penang, right?
You must be aware also that DAP former vice chairman Zulkifli Mohd Noor has revealed that his party treats Malays as if they’re worth only “lima kupang” (50 sen) whereas Amran Ahmad – son of the late Ahmad Nor, another DAP vice chairman – begged to differ. Amran said Malays are only “5 sen” in the DAP.
DAP Superbullies and the poor PAS lambs
Any Chinese voter can see the hopelessness of the Chinese standing in the BN.
And come GE14, the MCA’s seat count will be down to zero. Therefore we can expect something like 95 percent Chinese backing for the DAP in the next election.
There is no future glimpsed for the Chinese in the current ruling party. Even Utusan, regarded as the Umno mouthpiece, has asked the incumbent MCA president Chua Soi Lek not to overstay his welcome in BN.
The Chinese path into the political future is fixed as there is no other alternative but to take the Pakatan route.
For the Malays and Muslims in PAS, you are now at the crossroads. Pandai-pandai lah bermuhasabah diri dan kalau terdesak, kerjakan sembahyang istiqarah untuk minta diberi petunjuk.
