It is not the fault of Najib Razak or Umno or BN or Putrajaya that flight MH370 went missing.
And although there were admittedly a few shortcomings in the way the authorities handled the matter, still there is not much more that Najib, Umno, the BN, Putrajaya and MAS could have done to placate the Chinese families.
In light of this, the tweet (screenshot above) by uber evangelista Datuk Lee Hwa Beng – former three-term MCA Adun for Subang Jaya – sharing that “Putrajaya should apologise to Chinese families of MH370 passengers” must register a question mark in the seemingly impenetrable tidak apa mindset of the Umno leadership.
Alahai Umno! Tolong lah bangun dari tidur lena tu, boleh tak?
If you follow Datuk Lee’s public pronouncements closely, you will realise that he is more DAP than the DAP. But this man represented the MCA in the Selangor state assembly for three terms as well as was appointed by MCA-BN to be chairman of Port Klang from 2009-2011.
There is something very, very wrong with Umno!
The Umno Yang Berhormats are not Mandarin speakers. So we do not expect that they can do much personally, due to language constraints, about the unbridled anti-government hatred that is on display in the Malaysian Chinese social media.
Neither do we expect Umno to be able to deal with the Beijing officials, Chinese media and the China families affected by the disappearance of the plane with regard to the fitnah being spread about the “useless Malay” government agencies, statutory bodies and GLCs connected with handling the MH370 affair.
Effecting damage control and liaison with Chinese speakers is the job of the Malaysian CHINESE Association which is claiming its place in the BN on account of nothing else but its Chineseness. It is also a task in which the MCA fails abjectly. F-minus.
MCA has not been of any use in protecting Malaysia’s international reputation nor defending the government’s handling of the issue in the Chinese sphere. Instead of contributing to the solution, the MCA has compounded the problem through its Gunting dalam Lipatan.
Umpama mendokong biawak hidup
What is the use of MCA to the BN?
Somebody from the Umno
Sleepy Supreme Council please answer me this, can or not?
Our country is under various attacks from the international and Chinese media.
Below: “Ma Lie”
Yet the MCA media machinery as well as the MCA are doing nothing about helping to clarify the situation on behalf of the government. Instead Putrajaya has been stabbed in the back to the point of having to confront the hysteria of the Chinese families and China public.
Under the circumstances of language and cultural barriers, do you expect Umno to be at the forefront of defending the government? They can’t even if they wanted to (they don’t speak Chinese). The job falls to the MCA.
Cukup-cukup lah. If MCA is unable to stand up and deliver, then the party most certainly does not deserve to be in the cabinet.
The MCA is not behaving like they are a part of the Najib administration. They are instead behaving like they are a fifth column. How else do you explain the unmitigated bad press that has beset Malaysia in the Chinese-speaking world?
If the PPTA is still refusing to be proactive about this, then expect a backlash from the Malay grassroots to kick the Umno fat arses out of their cushy chairs in Putrajaya.
