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.
ABOVE: Lee You Hin is the Kelana Jaya MCA Youth chairman
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.

Where do you get all of these cute pictures? I like the dear leader inspecting a barisan of people with PAS flag on their butts.
Anyways, I thought I read on RPK’s website that DAP is heading towards unconstitutional crisis because the ROS has yet to confirm their recent CEC elections? And yet DAP wants to conduct state elections.

Saya suka itu kartun, saya ingat Helen buat sendiri!
I can draw cartoons, yes. Let me ease off from writing and I’ll try to upload my original work (illustrations) in future. My pencil is too rusty at the moment and it requires a mental shift to move from printed word to visual.
I seriously thought the cartoon was yours…Some graphics are yours I reckon, you gunting sana, gunting sini, mendedahkan kebobrokkan gunting dalam lipatan!!!
Yes, some montages but even then I build on stuff that are already on the Net.
Like I said, I’m technically competent in drawing caricatures but a superb political cartoonist – I consider Zunar one, and the best in Malaysia – requires the razor-sharp thinking capacity to conceptualize the jibe in one frame.
Zunar is hilarious. I’m an ardent fan.
I’ll need a transition period. I’m still stuck in the Jurassic Age of using pencil to draw whereas there’s sophisticated illustration software in the market nowadays.
lepas ini surely you will have ample time untuk melukis dan buat lain-lain hobi baru…
I have a day job to do with research. Blogging has affected my performance at work. Luckily it is tolerated but it doesn’t get me a good appraisal, that’s for sure.
One of my bosses even had a sit-down talking-to with me and advised that one day I’ll look back and regret the time, energy and effort I’ve poured into doing this.
Helen, for one. I’m surprised that you actually did this part time. Tabik Spring 10 Kali.
Secondly, I believe with all the date that you have amassed for the last few years manning the blog, surely most can be used to write a book, or more, on hubungan sesama kaum di Malaysia.
KKS write a penipu book and people bought it and hailed him an intellectual. Mana tau lepas ni Penang Institute jemput you pi sana?!
I do come across interesting data in the course of my work.
I’m able to dig out facts like the Mara enrolment for the year 2004, see https://helenang.wordpress.com/2013/09/15/pemerkasaan-agenda-melayu-golongan-miskin-india-tetap-disisih/#comment-52362
heh-heh-heh, the Mara stats was produced in my discussion with YOU specifically, remember?
And I quoted Conrad something from a monograph, see https://helenang.wordpress.com/2013/09/26/dapsters-the-sultans-of-spin-on-chin-peng/#comment-53161
I mean, how many people (unless they are in academia) read monographs?
I’ve reproduced unimpeachable graphs and charts, stuff from the Malaysia Plans, and other reputable sources …
… and just because “they” are unable to refute my research, they resort to fabricating the vilest, most outrageous lies about me and mounting smear campaigns in cyberspace.
I thought that I was in a unique position of being the rare Chinese who does not hate Umno or Dr M (I’m currently reading Khoo Boo Teik’s ‘Beyond Mahathir: Malaysian Politics and its Discontents’) …
… but trying to provide rational insight to people (not to say that they’re my target audience) is like memberi bunga kepada kera.
The Chinese simply throw all kind of vile accusations just because I don’t think like the 90 percent of them do. Well, of course I don’t. I read in BM, and I write in BM. I speak BM with ease.
Quite naturally my perspective will be different from them who live in their Jerusubang bubble and perpetually slander everyone else.
‘heh-heh-heh, the Mara stats was produced in my discussion with YOU specifically, remember?’
Yup, how could I forget. Especially when someone had actually got jealous of some fact written.
‘… and just because “they” are unable to refute my research, they resort to fabricating the vilest, most outrageous lies about me and mounting smear campaigns in cyberspace.’
Such is life! Apa nak dikato?!
‘I thought that I was in a unique position of being the rare Chinese who does not hate Umno or Dr M’
Very rare indeed. Even my Cina Muslim pengyu in Tanjung Bunga, hates UMNO and Tun M.
‘The Chinese simply throw all kind of vile accusations just because I don’t think like the 90 percent of them do. Well, of course I don’t. I read in BM, and I write in BM. I speak BM with ease.’
Surely, should they speak better BM, perhaps that will be a good start for them to faham bahasa. Anyway. By the rate the PR is going with the slander and try memecah-belahkan Malaysia, we all can just kiss that good bye!
‘Quite naturally my perspective will be different from them who live in their Jerusubang bubble and perpetually slander everyone else.’
My Cina Muslim kawan had PAS to blame for that! Period. He ikhlas masuk Islam. Abandoned keselesaan and kekayaan. Went to Kelantan because Penang was, according to him, not Islamic enough, and then met PAS with their Hanya Kami Ahli Syurga thinking cap! I seriously pity him. May Allah SWT guide my dear kawan. I can only do so little and UMNO is not helping either most of the time!
MCA and Gerakan had khianat BN long ago when they had failed to provide some of the perspectives which had been raised by you on this blog over the years.
They are enjoying the fruit of their labor. I’m sure most of them are pleased.

It is obvious that the burden of proof lies on the shoulders of the PKR accusation of UMNO nepotism, but inspecting the evidence of the personal practices of the 3 involved parties alone would be cause enough to sling the muck back at their own faces.

Bak Kut Teh is not about pork and Vivian Lee does not want to outdo Annabel Chong’s infamous gang bang (maybe the sex kitten is just joking) …. are you idiots enjoying your eroticism and humouring yourselves at the expense of us ordinary Malaysians while corrupting the souls of our good and well-mannered children as you indulge in your devilish entertainments?
Kata orang paku serpih, geng ini dulu tuduh Tun M macam-macam. Najib dengan Rosmah. Tup2 depa semua anak beranak dan bini.
Anwar, Nik Aziz, Abdul Hadi, LKS and Karpal…
muka tebal tempet kulit ….!
So sad to see so many Malays can be bought and sold in no price at all. I hope Malays can fix themselves up so that we don’t have to risk being ruled by cold-blooded communists.
Mat Saboo is one of them. “The ash” would be brought back if this fellow and the Dapork is in Putra Jaya. By then “the clueless” will be gone like “the slumberjack” or earlier.
If Malays are worth 50 sen to DAP, I wonder if Hannah Yeoh is worth 45000 Malays? After all Madam Speaker just got a bump up on her salary to RM22.5k a month today.
Yes, and if this increament happen during BN reign, they will jump up and down like a frog running from a snake saying BN taking people money for their own gain….
Recently LKS said that PAS would not be able to ‘go anywhere’ in Malaysian politics if PAS did not align itself with Pakatan Rakyat.
I almost choked on my teh ais when I read his statement.
Has he forgotten that there would be no Pakatan Rakyat if PAS were to dump PR?
Bodoh punya org.
Setuju, LKS biasa lah pandang rendah dengan parti Melayu. Apa boleh buat. Kalau bukan kerana jentera PAS, 2008 and 2013, bendera DAP belum tentu berkibar kat Malay Heartlands.
PAS dah mengkosherkan DAP dan PKR. Tanpa PAS, memang tak boleh lepas punya!!!
can pls provide your email/phone. i want to propose an event appointing you to be a speaker for our programme in 2014. the details are not drafted yet however.
Cakap tak serupa bikin – pakatan ni.
Pot calling the kettle black.
From a post in Facebook
I love it when politicians try to justify their own pay r̶i̶s̶e̶ hike. After Sarawak and Selangor, I am very sure the Federal government and the two august houses will not be too far behind.
B̲e̲f̲o̲r̲e̲ ̲&̲ ̲A̲f̲t̲e̲r̲
Chief Minister of Sarawak (RM13,000 to RM39,000 – 200%) eff. 2012
Chief Minister of Selangor (RM14,175 to RM29,250 – 106%) eff. 2014
Exco Sarawak (RM9,000 to RM27,000 – 300%)
Exco Selangor (RM6,109 to RM20,250 – 231%)
Gaji jawatan Menteri-menteri Besar di atas lebih besar daripada gaji jawatan Perdana Menteri. Kalah Menteri-menteri Kerajaan Persekutuan dengan Exco Kerajaan Negeri.
And you still believe in politicians?
re: “And you still believe in politicians?”
Not only they do, but the Firsters will swear their icons walk on water.
Already saw some online comments. Generally the comment was of the “they DESERVE it”, “do MORE for the people after this” and “pay peanuts get MONKEYS” variety.
I didn’t like the Sarawak pay hike, and I don’t like the Selangor pay hike. Yes, probably the states are wealthy and they can afford it (what’s another few million here and there), but the principle of the matter is that public service salaries should not be increased unilaterally just because you can. How about the salaries of judges, councilors and other monies paid through public coffers? Salaries hikes in that proportion is only going to make matters worse for public expenditure!
All the wakil rakyat sekarang akan minta gaji-gajinya dinaikkan. Apa kerja wakil rakyat? Mana KPInya? Semua penyangak dan penyamun jua.
And yet they wanted the Najib potong gaji kat federal…cakap tak serupa bikin!
I start questioning their motived when during Tun M time, he purpose a pay and elauns hiked in Parliment and nobody in BN (it a given they support Tun M) and oppo protest. suddently everybody grinning from ears-to ears. Even LKS and KS on that time grinning like an idiot.
Guess how much HY’s salary increase sebagai Speaker? LOL!
In the consultant league … RM22,500 a month (Speaker) & RM11,250 (Adun) and then some ++.
You mean con-sultan league…
I never really understand the naïve faith that some people have for politicians. I mean, yes, it is not JUST a job, but if shareholders pay an employee almost RM35k a month, there must be something substantial that they are bringing / contributing to the firm (not that I understand how some CEOs can be worth six-digit sums a month). Even then, I doubt many shareholders will look at their captains of the industry with doe-eyed worship and adoration.
My capitalist friends think that it is necessary (the huge salaries, not dumbass shareholders), but I think that is stupid. Income inequality will eventually come back and bite capitalists in their own behind.
They have been well trained to recite the ‘Hail Hannah’ daily.
Wow… Hannah Yeoh punya income all in satu bulan more than RM30k la..
Reading the latest news reports, it appears that she will be taking home in basic salary something like 40k monthly, and that’s not counting the allowances, perks and other claims.
Clap clap clap for Hannah Yeoh.. 40k monthly?
