Teresa Kok accused Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Joseph Kurup of playing the race card in his speech yesterday. She also accused him of abusing his position to campaign the Kajang by-election during a ministry event.
(For backgrounder, refer ‘PRK Kajang: Chinese audience cannot understand Minister speaking in Malay‘.)
“This is most unbecoming and irresponsible of a Minister in charge of national unity,” said the Seputeh MP cum DAP vice chairman in a press statement released a short while ago. “He must now answer the question that Malaysians want to know – is he a Minister of Unity or Disunity?”, she added.
“How could a minister in charge of national unity play racial card in a by-election?”, said Teresa in her statement.
Teresa further berated Kurup, telling him that all Ministers must regard themselves as Malaysians First as well as challenged Najib Razak to state his stand on national unity.

Gunting dalam Lipatan
If a priest has to deny that he is a pedophile, you would wonder if he is wouldn’t you.
The DAP has been successful in spreading the perception that Umno is racist, Muhyiddin is extremist, Perkasa is the Klu Klux Klan and Isma is religious bigot all thanks to the party’s well-oiled media machinery.
Therefore, it looks like The J-Star‘s subtle strategy to deliberately highlight the Umno president at the moment when he is cornered into denying that his party is racist. The fact that he has even to deny this DAP “racist, racist, racist” mantra indicates how far the aggressive and vicious DAP black propaganda has taken its toll.

Evangelista Bintang Lima
As for conniving The J-Star headline on Muhyiddin Yassin, compare the paper’s treatment of him with how the evangelista Bintang Lima editors treat Lim Guan Eng.
MCA is nothing but treacherous (there is no other word) for allowing its Scissorati to mount such sneaky ambushes against the BN leadership.
With the role of The J-Star the biggest circulation English media, ask yourself if the paper has been assiduously carrying out the DAP 3.0 agenda by looking at how its coverage of the Kajang by-election is panning out.
Compare the way Umno bloggers have been campaigning hard for Chew Mei Fun and contrast this to the Scissorati’s backstabbing of Wanita MCA, so much so that when the vice chairman of the party women’s wing died of cancer, 60 percent of the J-Star readers who gave their feedback said that they were HAPPY/INSPIRED/AMUSED to hear the news.
