In table form below, you can see the phenomenal rise and rise of the DAP. From winning a mere 11 state seats in the 1999 election, DAP catapulted its performance to win 95 seats in 2013.
In GE13, DAP contested 103 state seats and won 95 excluding Sarawak. That’s a success rate of 92.2 percent — a grade ‘A’.
PAS on the other hand contested 236 state seats and won 85. That’s a
success failure rate of 36.0 percent — a grade ‘D’.
So who do you think is the boss of Pakatan?
The Lim dictatorship consolidates
Beginning this weekend, the DAP state conventions will be electing new party leaders.
In this regard, Lim Kit Siang issued a press statement yesterday saying:
“This clear and unmistakable message all DAP State Conventions in the coming weeks should send out to all Malaysians is that the DAP at all levels in the country are one with the DAP national leadership and the other Pakatan Rakyat partners, PAS and PKR, to conquer Putrajaya in the 14GE to achieve the Malaysian Dream – a Malaysia for all Malaysians regardless of race, religion, class or region where democracy, good governance and socio-economic justice could flourish to allow every Malaysian to achieve his or her fullest potential for the collective good and greatness of the nation.”
Taking away the Firster jargon of “democracy”, “justice” and “good governance”, what Kit Siang is saying is that the DAP state leaderships are expected to toe the line drawn by his son and with the objective of conquering Putrajaya in mind.
What one should expect is that those DAP state committees that do not see eye to eye with Dear Leader will be ousted. The muhibbah DAP Johor line-up of Dr Boo Cheng Hau (chairman), Norman Fernandez (deputy chairman) and Ahmad Ton (vice chairman) will be stepping down. Either that or they face an ouster.
The Lims have already put their people such as Liew Chin Tong and Teo Nie Ching in Johor ready to take over.
The takeover by the Lims of DAP Kedah proved to be a farce.
After installing Zairil Khir Johari as chairman dislodging his elected predecessor Lee Guan Aik, Dear Leader then named Syed Araniri Syed Ahmad as the party state vice chairman in a ‘muka Melayu’ window-dressing exercise.
As it turns out, Syed Araniri dropped a bombshell. He revealed that he had applied to the party headquarters since January 2012 to register a Malay-majority branch of Taman Wira, Mergong but until today has never received any confirmation of approval from the DAP.
In fact, Syed Araniri’s own membership status was in doubt when suddenly and out of the blue, he was appointed to the post of DAP Kedah vice chairman after the serving state committee was removed.
The farcical episode really shows how the DAP ruling clique makes monkeys out of Malays.
Fanaticism of the evangelista cult following
Zairil Khir Johari was given the Bukit Bendera Parliament seat in Penang to contest in the recent general election. He is Guan Eng’s political secretary.
Kit Siang’s political secretary P. Kasthuriraani was given the Batu Kawan Parliament seat to contest. Batu Kawan in Penang was previously held by P. Ramasamy, the state Deputy Chief Minister (II) who owes his DAP political career to Kit Siang’s son.
When Kit Siang vacated his Ipoh Timor safe seat to move to Gelang Patah, his long-time aide Thomas Su was given the party’s Parliament stronghold in Perak to contest. Lee Kee Hiong, another former Kit Siang political secretary, stood in Selangor state constituency of Kuala Kubu Baru under the DAP GE13 ticket.
Guan Eng’s other political secretary Ng Wei Aik was given the Tanjong Parliament seat to contest.
Hannah Yeoh’s personal assistant Rajiv Rishyakaran was given the Bukit Gasing state seat in Petaling Jaya Selatan to contest while Tony Pua’s personal assistant Yeo Bee Yin was given the Damansara Utama state seat in Petaling Jaya Utara. Both the young evangelistas made their electoral debut on 5 May 2013. Yeo Bee Yin had only joined the DAP in late August 2012.
What is most astounding about the details above is not the cronyism but that the Dapsters can be so very blind. They accuse the BN of cronyism but are oblivious to the stinking carcass in their own backyard.

Perpetually hysterical DAP evangelistas
The opposition supporters similarly revile the nepotism in Umno. But just look at the results of the DAP’s recent reelection of the party CEC. The top five finishers are as below:
1. Liew Chin Tong – 1,438 votes
2. Lim Kit Siang – 1,436 votes
3. Karpal Singh – 1,421 votes
4. Gobind Singh – 1,409 votes
5. Lim Guan Eng – 1,304 votes
The DAP is controlled by two families!
Meanwhile in PAS, party president Hadi Awang’s son Khalil is now the deputy chief of PAS Youth while Nik Aziz’s son Nik Abduh (former PAS Youth deputy chief) is now in the party central executive committee.
And who can forget the PKR royal family of Anwar functioning as the Ketua Umum, his wife Wan Azizah as the party president and their daughter Nurul Izzah as the party vice president.
Please note that all the opposition scions are holding office at the SAME TIME that the parents are still in power and leading their respective parties.
Now let’s compare the Umno current leaders who have inherited famous names.
EBU: Everything Blame Umno
Dr Mahathir Mohamad stepped down in 2003. His son Mukhriz took a shot at the Umno Youth chief post in 2009 and the Umno vice presidency in 2013, ten years after his father relinquished office. For all the labelling of Dr M as a dictator, how come Mukhriz is not holding either of the posts that he fancied?
Tun Razak passed away in 1976. That’s 37 years ago. Unlike the Pakatan dynastic practice, Najib did not enter politics when his father was alive.
Tun Hussein Onn retired in 1981. That’s 32 years ago. Hishamuddin only contested Parliament in 1995, a full five years after his father died in 1990.
Surely anyone with a modicum of objectivity can see that the nepotism in Pakatan is many times worse than that in the BN.
Yet the irrationality of the opposition supporters induces them to make unfounded personal attacks on any critic who points out the Pakatan hypocrisy. All these facts are public record and can be verified by anybody who takes the trouble to check. But Dapsters don’t care about facts.
Accusation of being “Umno agents”
When Dapsters cannot counter solid facts nor produce data to support what they claim, they resort to character assassination and concocting lies about those who critique the hypocrisy of their beloved party. The Jerusubang evangelistas are the ones most capable of fabricating the vilest fitnah.
Their fondness for mud-slinging is learned from their legendary Dear Leaders. Just recall how many times Guan Eng has alleged his critics to be “Umno agents”.
When the president of the Consumer Association of Penang voiced his concern over the multi-billion ringgit Penang undersea tunnel proposal, Guan Eng not only alluded to his being allegedly an Umno agent but brought up his mamak roots and insinuated that the criticism by S.M. Mohd Idris against the project was due to his purported Umno connections (all because the man is mamak).
What the kind of people they are?
In the Alvivi affidavit submitted to the High Court last month, counsel Chong Joo Tian said those Muslims who were upset by the pair’s buka puasa invitation only took offence because they were confused and lacked knowledge.
Bak Kut Teh is not pork, insists the lawyer for Alvin and Vivian. This blatant denial represents just the kind of people DAP supporters are.
What’s worse is not that the CTs (Communist Terrorists Bintang Tiga / Cyber Troopers Bintang Lima) slander DAP critics but that the odikal supporters simply swallow their patent falsehoods without thinking.
What kind of people can be so willing and easily persuaded to participate in the lynch mobs fuelled by brainwashing, hatred and lies?
Has the DAP really shed its anti-Malay attitude?
In under 6 years (since 8 March 2008), Guan Eng is on to his third Malay Deputy Chief Minister. What does this tell you about the DAP 3.0 evangelistas ability to forge any genuine relationship with Malays?
- Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin (March 2008-April 2009)
- Mansor Othman (June 2009-May 2013)
- Mohd Rashid Hasnon (present)
Both Fairus and Mansor were unceremoniously shown the exit by Guan Eng.
Two Malay former DAP vice chairmen do not have good things to say either. Tunku Aziz Ibrahim quite frankly said Guan Eng is biadab and cannot be trusted while Zulkifli Mohd Nor said that DAP treats Malays like they’re worth 50 sen.
The PAS delegates’ in-denial with regard to the grassroots wariness of their tahaluf siyasi will only shift Muslim support to emerging power brokers like Isma.
