Today is May the 5th.
It is the first anniversary of the Chinese tsunami.
The Sun cover story today is headlined ‘Anti-hudud front: MCA prepared to work with DAP to oppose Islamic penal system’ (see below).
This would not be the first time that MCA is working together with the DAP. If MCA had not collaborated with the DAP during the last general election, the Chinese tsunami would not have happened.
The 13th general election was held one year ago on 5 May 2013.
Let’s recap. There were 13.3 million registered voters for GE13.
Voter turnout was 84.8 percent or 11.3 million for the Parliamentary election.

As early as June 2012, it was already noted that “pengundi Cina senyap-senyap mendaftar” and how the community is over-represented in the electoral roll in proportion to their population share.
Chinese voters by state:
- Johor 39.30% (619,402)
- Kedah 15.52% (158,610)
- Kelantan 3.78% (34,171)
- Malacca 34.18% (148,520)
- Negeri Sembilan 30.69% (167,280)
- Pahang 21.35% (154,854)
- Perak 38.01% (530,460)
- Perlis 11.66% (15,706)
- Penang 53.92% (449,267)
- Sabah 17.08% (168,111)
- Sarawak 32.51% (345,771)
- Selangor 34.06% (683,597)
- Terengganu 3.59% (22,567)
- Federal Territories 51.42% (410, 969)
Chinese registered voters: 3,909,285
Going by the national voter turnout of 84.84 percent, a total of 3,316,637 Chinese would have voted in GE13.
(The number should be higher actually as the “Ini kali lah” Chinese turned out in full force compared to the other races, but never mind, we’ll still just go with the national average.)
BN received 5,237,699 of the votes cast for Parliament while PKR obtained 2,254,328 votes, DAP 1,736,267 and PAS 1,633,389.
BN garnered 47.4 percent of the votes while Pakatan won the “popular vote” at 50.8 percent (popularly rounded up to 51%).
Lim Kit Siang nonetheless sneakily gave themselves a bonus of one percent, and yesterday in his anniversary message had misleadingly proclaimed “52% of the national voters voting for PR”.
Some 3.3 million Chinese voted in GE13.
MCA claims to have a million in membership.
Did MCA’s one million members contribute their one million votes to the BN tally of 5.2 million votes, you think?
Going by the numbers, it is impossible for BN to have lost all the Chinese seats including in Johor if the members of the BN Chinese parties had really supported their own party candidates.
The truth of the matter is that the majority of MCA members voted for the opposition.
Refer, Kit Siang: Term ‘Chinese tsunami’ is “downright racist”. Better all say “Chinese unity” then.

BN’S SEATS IN PARLIAMENT KEEP DECREASING, PAKATAN’S KEEP INCREASING
Analysis of the GE13 results by Dah Ikhwan revealed that the average Chinese support for BN in the peninsula was 10.8 percent.
PERCENTAGE OF CHINESE WHO VOTED BN:
- Perak – 13.1%
- Penang – 12.6%
- KL & Selangor – 11.6%
- Johor – 11.1%
- Kedah – 9.2%
- N. Sembilan & Malacca – 7.2%
“Corak pengundian mereka mencerminkan kaum Cina begitu yakin yang mereka mampu memberi kemenangan kepada Pakatan Rakyat untuk menumbangkan kerajaan Melayu serta membentuk kerajaan persekutuan yang diterajui DAP. Dengan itu DAP telah berjaya memperoleh hampir keseluruhan undi kaum Cina …”, summarized Dah Ikhwan.
MCA president Liow Tiong Lai said yesterday, “I think we (MCA and DAP) have a cordial relationship) …” — see The Sun cover story.
Yeah, he can say that again. It’d be hard for an impartial observer to guess that the DAP is supposed to be the MCA’s arch rival given how warmly the MCA media is promoting the DAP evangelistas.
Thanks to all that campaigning by the MCA machinery on the DAP’s behalf, 38 DAP Members of Parliament and 107 DAP state assemblymen were swept into power in the last general election (plus Sarawak April 2011 state election).
Ong Kian Ming is a J-Star columnist, by the way.
The Chinese electorate elected these folks above into office: YB Lim (Segambut), YB Ong (Serdang) and YB Lau (Kg Tunku).
- Lim Lip Eng — famous for being staunch Christian MP who boasted that a DAP chief of air force or navy would surely have located MH370 (28 March 2014)
- Ong Kian Ming — evangelista famous for cornering the market on #sahur (14 July 2013) and “Insya Allah”ing away
- Lau Weng San — famous for suggesting that he would table amendments to the Selangor Enactment 1988 following the ‘Allah’ bibles seizure by Jais (4 Jan 2014)
Then we have
- Tan Kok Wai (Cheras) who is the acting DAP chairman,
- Ng Suee Lim (Sekinchan) who attempted to quote the hadith in the Selangor Dewan proceedings because he loves Islam,
- Thomas Su (Ipoh Timor) who acted as the lawyer for a Chinese towkay in the following court case ‘Lying under oath – justice blancoed‘
- and Anthony Loke (Seremban) who is the greatest Chinese defender of Islam.
You wouldn’t be faulted for thinking that Tan Kok Wai, Ng Suee Lim, Thomas Su and Anthony Loke all look like prosperous MCA Datuks.
The DAP supporters really and truly believe that everybody else but themselves are racist.
Why is “Chinese tsunami” a taboo phrase, and the J-Star strongly in denial (preferring “Malaysian tsunami” and “urban tsunami”?)
MCA leaders are at present anxiously waiting to be reabsorbed as federal ministers. The NST yesterday carried a story headlined ‘MCA wants to rejoin Cabinet to serve community‘ .
The problem here is that no community wants the MCA anymore. As we can see from GE13, the party has been thoroughly rejected by the Chinese whom it purports to represent.
Now the MCA is coming out into the open and publicly announcing that it wants to join forces with the DAP to fight hudud.
It is suicidal for BN to allow these backstabbers re-entry into the cabinet.
All BN supporters must loudly voice their objections to the return of the traitorous MCA.
It is clear that the MCA has betrayed the coalition.
