Lim Kit Siang today accused MCA deputy president Wee Ka Siong of poisoning and misleading Umno ministers into believing that Teresa Kok’s video is anti-Malay and anti-Islam.
In his press statement today, Kit Siang further added:
“I have always suspected that Umno Ministers and leaders have been led by the nose and ‘poisoned’ by Chinese leaders in MCA and Gerakan as the Teresa video issue as they do not understand the dialogue which is in Mandarin and Cantonese …”
Actually it is the evangelista wing of DAP 3.0 that is the national hate factory.
Blogger JMD’s articulated the view that many of us share on the irony of DAP asking for “national reconciliation” (cakap tak serupa bikin) against what they actually do, which is “spewing hatred”.
At the same time that Kit Siang is defending his protege and former political secretary Teresa over this controversy, he had written – over the past month to the PM ostensibly urging national reconciliation – not one, not two but three open letters.
He (and the evangelistas) are clearly adept at manipulating and debasing the Open Letter format for their slick and slimy showboating. You wonder whether Kit Siang caught this evangelitis from Teresa.
For Kit Siang, his DAP leaders “must always regard themselves as ‘Malaysian first and race and religion second’.”
Yet in his very same press statement he said “[Shafie] Apdal could not have understood the Mandarin or Cantonese dialogue in the video”.
So Kit Siang is saying that the federal minister could not understand the language in Teresa’s video. Well, is this “shortcoming” Shafie Apdal’s fault or is it the fault of the Malaysian First DAP vice chairman for using a dialect alien to the majority of the Malaysian population?
Kit Siang also claimed that “the many Umno Ministers, leaders and ‘Islamic NGOs’ taking umbrage raises questions as the language in the dialogue in the video was in Cantonese and Mandarin“.
You would think that the question to be raised is not why the many Umno Ministers, leaders and Islamic NGOs are unable to understand Cantonese.
Instead the question should rightly be why the Malaysian First vice chairman of a party which “had always stood for a Malaysia for all Malaysians” (Kit Siang proudly repeated this in his press statement today) should be making a video in the language that the majority of Malaysians are unable to understand.
“You reap what you sow”
Hannah Yeoh challenges the ROS to “spend some time investigating some of these ‘NGOs’ slaughtering animals on streets” (tweet here).
Earlier Madame Speaker had wanted the police to take action against the Muslims NGOs while previously she tweeted that the Menteri Besar must suspend a Jais officer. She even appeared to be making attacks against Jakim.
These evangelistas are so deliberately provocative and yet they expect the Home Minister to babysit their safety. The Kota Belud MP gave good advice when he admonished “Don’t act stupid YB. You reap what you sow!”
