MCA in cabinet: Would Caesar have taken back Brutus if Caesar had survived the assassination?

By GR Kumar

The comments of the Tun in respect of your open letter above are slightly (and I say this respectfully of him) misplaced and based on sentiments that were perhaps valid in the 1970’s and 1980’s but not today.

The Chinese cannot wag the dog anymore than they did in the past. Much of the Chinese “power” based on their economic prowess and capacity (which still provides and endures) is no match for the ballot box and the power of the administration in government that wields it.

Much like how the Arabs of the late 1970’s were no longer the tent-dwelling Bedouin the Israelis walked all over in 1967 when they defeated Israel in the Yom Kippur war, the Malays – urban and rural – are a more sophisticated bunch exposed to the same influences and forces the Chinese and Indians had accessed, manipulated and benefitted from immediately post independence to this day.

A betrayal of the kind the Chinese demonstrated at that Tsunami last year was a “do or die” moment for them. They demonstrated their true colours at that final hour when the ship, they believed, was sinking. Rats do that. They should not be rewarded for their betrayal. It is a gamble they took and lost. They should not be pampered and mollycoddled for losing that gamble. At least Judas was honourable enough to hang himself after betraying Jesus Christ for 30 pieces of silver.

What sort of a message does that “forgiveness” by the Tun send out to the many Judas’ in government? Brutus was an honourable man. I doubt Ceaser would have forgiven him and taken him back to the senate if he survived the assassination. That’s what the Tun appears to be proposing.

We must forget that hype that the Chinese are invincible and somehow possessed of the magic of commerce. Everyone is. Especially if they adopt the Chinese method of success of threats, blackmail, bribery and corruption.

For all their faults the Hindraf mob, in spite of the kick in the pants they received at the hands of government, showed loyalty and put whatever skin they had in the game. The government came through.

Without the enormous financial resources of the Chinese, the Indians had everything to lose and some say lost in that gamble. But that’s for another day and subject to what government may yet have in store for them.

The corruption in government as the popular media and opposition to government claims exists is almost to a fault and to a man the game of Chinese entrepreneurs bribing low paid and ambitious public servants to access public property and opportunities without having to submit to a meritorious assessment of their capabilities.

Yet the blame is always directed at people like the Tun and the Malays and to every element of the BN government. Not one of the beneficiaries of the largesse of the Tun’s era in politics including the late Eric Cheah, Vincent Tan, the Kuok Brothers and others who benefitted immensely bothered to stand up and say, I got my license and my opportunities through merit or at the very least, the Tun is not guilty as accused.

Unless the Malays wish to be relegated in eternity to the role of high paid peons, baggage boys and drivers of the powerful Chinese interest in Malaysia, they should stand up now and show the Chinese what consequences there are for betrayal.

There is an old Sicilian saying that goes like this:

“Revenge is a dish that is best served cold!!”

To the Tun: Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.

You have an enormous degree of influence amongst Malaysia’s majority: its Malays and Indians (at least of the latter those who do not support Ambiga and her Brahmins). You must rethink your strategy because many hang on to your every word. Once given the opportunity to rule the Chinese will never let go. Let Singapore be an example of that point. However rich a Malay may be after that, he would have lost his position of primacy in a land destiny, God and history gave him. And if that happens which it could, all of us who stood by and did nothing or said nothing about the Tsunami approaching in its second round will be responsible for it.

Salaams to the Tun and well said Helen Ang.

  1. Let’s see how many opposition hacks comment on this post. It’ll be very interesting.

  2. I would very much agreed with GR Kumar, he lines it very well, only one thing he forget to mention Ananda Krishnen and Tony Fenendez both excel during Tun time, where would they be without government help?

    Tony now openly dictate the government.

    1. ‘…he forget to mention Ananda Krishnen and Tony Fenendez both excel during Tun time, where would they be without government help?’

      Are you kidding me TT, the Melayus businessmen are heavily assisted by the Rasis Melayu Gomen, whereas the non Melayus businessmen are born business savvy!

  3. Now you know why in Russia and China they have state capitalism. These 2 countries know that the existence of big private enterprises is a big threat to the government. We should do the same too.

    You mentioned Singapore. If you look at Singapore, you notice there too, the government control the big companies. Why ? The same reason as in Russia and China.

  4. Hakikatnya, kewujudan DAP di Malaysia bukan sekadar untuk menawan Putrajaya, namun apa yang lebih penting lagi adalah menyebarkan ajaran kristian seterusnya menjadikan Malaysia sebagai sebuah Negara Kristian. DAP mendapat sokongan yang kuat dari pihak gereja serta berhasrat untuk mengenepikan semua Jemaah Islam setelah berkuasa kelak.

    Ucapan seorang pemimpin kanan DAP, “We must make sure Christian become the official religion in Malaysia and we must make sure the next PM is a Christian.”

    Dengan kejelasan ideology yang dibawa, DAP pada ketika ini telah hampir berjaya memonopoli majoriti undi cina berbanding MCA dan tidak mustahil untuk parti itu menyingkirkan PAS dari pakatan demi memperkuatkan lagi undi cina kepada DAP.

  5. GR Kumar speaking? Where’s MIC, PPP, IDP, Hindraf?

    Supporting the opposition is a betrayal? To whom? To UMNO , BN or the country?

    Negara Komunis ke?

    Anwar tu bukan Melayu ke? PAS tu bukan Melayu ke? Bukan Islam ke?

    Now is 2014 lah. Wonder who is living still in the 19th and 20th century?

    Most probably written by Gobalakrishnan who happily live on scraps thrown by the powers to be. And his idols are all UMNO Melayus.

    What crap!

    1. You’re the one who is living in the past. With no means to rebut the man’s argument, you flash the race card.

      What crap ?

      Why don’t you write a piece to counter the man’s argument ? You can’t ?

      We know your tricks. Come in here and make statements. Then run off.

      That’s what you do.

      1. “you flash the race card”

        Actually, GR Kumar is blatantly flashing the race card when he accuses a race of betrayal, all because a majority of them preferred to vote for another coalition that includes Malay-based parties.

        “Why don’t you write a piece to counter the man’s argument ?”

        A few strong sentences always demolishes a few-hundred word rambling built on flimsy logic. How can voting for another political party (especially a Malay-based party) be considered betrayal?

          1. Hahaha.

            Regular like clockwork, AC-DC comes to spew his two minutes of hate.

    2. Well said. Gopal Raj Kumar of Brisbane should know that Malaysia is a parliamentary democracy where the people have the liberty of choosing which party to support as guaranteed by our Constitution. It is not an authoritarian dictatorship where non-support of the tyrant in power is considered betrayal.

      Curiously, no word is said of the Malays who support PAS, PKR, Anwar, the Kelantanese who have kept PAS in power for over twenty years, the Terengganu voters who removed the Barisan Nasional out from the state government in 1999, and who now keeps the current state government on a razor thin majority.

      Ah, but you see, its a racial double standard. It is all right if a Malay has never voted for the Barisan Nasional, and swears that he never will. But for a Chinese who had previously voted for the Barisan Nasional all his life, and who voted for Anwar’s party last year, oh, that is betrayal, treason, ‘derhaka’, and other epithets from a group with an entitlement mentality.

      1. Behold! AC-DC’s typical evangelista forked tongue darting in display.

        Hullo, the Chinese can vote whomever they want lah, as Malaysia is still a [guided] democracy.

        It’s the votes of the one million MCA members, the sabotage by the MCA division and branch chairmen, the lack of effort in campaigning by MCA apparatchik (the BN pondok panas in MCA areas were manned by Malay election workers) and the editorial slant of the MCA-owned paper that are being questioned.

        If MCA wants seats in the BN cabinet, then the MCA must earn their “meritocratic” representation in government by delivering the Chinese votes to the BN.

        In GE13, 90 percent of the Chinese voters wanted to bury Umno. After this double-dealing, MCA still thick- and two-faced enough to want in as Ministers?

        1. “It’s the votes of the one million MCA members, the sabotage by the MCA division and branch chairmen, the lack of effort in campaigning by MCA apparatchik (the BN pondok panas in MCA areas were manned by Malay election workers) and the editorial slant of the MCA-owned paper that are being questioned.”

          If MCA wants seats in the BN cabinet, then the MCA must earn their “meritocratic” representation in government by delivering the Chinese votes to the BN.”

          Delivering the Chinese votes to the BN is rather difficult when your dominant partner has been using them as a bogeyman and scapegoat. More so when your dominant partner is funding extremist fascist groups such as Perkasa and the intellectually asthmatic Isma.

          1. “[Deleted]”

            Ever heard the saying about people who live in glass houses? ;-)

            1. I’ve already alerted you – specifically – on my blog etiquette guidelines which you need to abide by, should you want your comments published here.

              In the interest of giving an airing to views that are opposed/contrary, your comments have passed moderation despite my low opinion of your evangelista methods.

              1. Ah, so it is perfectly fine for you and your minions to use certain epithets on others. It is not fine when others do the same to you in reply.

                1. You can use epithets within bounds but don’t mess with my name.

                  You despicable(-epithet) evangelistas operate by keeping your anonymity, you assume fake identities which are not even your own race and religion (not referring to you here in particular but other “RBA”) but at the same time you want to diss those of us whose identity are public by hitting below the belt.

                  1. this ACDC had no shame of himself. He kept trolling your ‘despicable hate filled personal’s blog’ despite disapproved of its content and directions. How shallow!

                    1. Already told you :) he visits daily and regular like clockwork to pour his two minutes’ worth of vitriol on the “Umnoputras”.

                      If he suddenly went cold turkey, he’d be suffering withdrawal symptoms.

                    2. If you want ‘Pak Angguk’ reader(s) who just nod and agree without question, just say so.

                  2. “You despicable(-epithet) evangelistas operate by keeping your anonymity…”

                    A lot of readers here comment anonymously, attacking other races and religions. That is fine for Helen.

                    “you assume fake identities which are not even your own race and religion”

                    I believe you have a hard time understanding there are large numbers of pro-Opposition Malays and Indians who are social media and internet users?

                    “but at the same time you want to diss those of us whose identity are public by hitting below the belt.”

                    Creating your own epithets, attacking Hannah Yeoh’s family, calling her a ‘Jew’ and obsessive near seven days a week coverage of her.

                    A clear case of double standards from Helen Ang.

                    1. re: “I believe you have a hard time understanding there are large numbers of pro-Opposition Malays and Indians who are social media and internet users?”

                      If you’ll venture into the hinterland of Malay blogosphere, you’ll find that the RBA-assumed fake Malay and Muslim identities have been outed by the Umno bloggers.

                      re: “attacking Hannah Yeoh’s family”

                      Hannah Yeoh made her baby which was barely a week old into political capital. If she did not herself opportunistically exploit her children, none of us would even know their names.

                      How many of us here can recall the names of DS Najib and TS Muhyiddin’s children?

                      As for her hubby, what is he doing in South Africa for a Parliamentary conference sitting beside his wife? See photo below.

                      Since when did Mr Hannah become a member of the Selangor government? If they want to abuse state resources, then they should jolly well be prepared to be subjected to public scrutiny. (To be fair, we have no idea what Rafidah Aziz and Ng Yen Yen’s husbands look like much less their names.)

                      re: “calling her a ‘Jew’ …”

                      I said Puan Speaker perangai macam Yahudi dah.

                      If I put up a survey question to ask readers whether her merengek-rengek sekali dijentik (like the Jews screaming “anti-semitic” whenever criticized) is behaviour peculiar to the Jewish persecution complex, what do you think the results of my poll will be?

                      re: “A clear case of double standards from Helen Ang.”

                      A clear case of hypocrisy and idiocy from AC-DC, the alternating current.

                    2. “If you’ll venture into the hinterland of Malay blogosphere, you’ll find that the RBA-assumed fake Malay and Muslim identities have been outed by the Umno bloggers.”

                      Every Malay Muslim who criticises the government online is labelled a fake RBA operative by the Umno bloggers. Then, these same bloggers scratch their heads and wonder why Barisan Nasional still loses in a Malay-majority area such as Kajang.

                      “If she did not herself opportunistically exploit her children, none of us would even know their names.”

                      Few of your readers would know the names of her children if it was not for you repetitively mentioning them in some of your articles.

                      “I said Puan Speaker perangai macam Yahudi dah.”

                      What a better way to drum up the hatred of your ultra-conservative reader demographic than to call her a ‘Jew’.

                    3. re: “Every Malay Muslim who criticises the government online is labelled a fake RBA operative by the Umno bloggers.”

                      Show one example.

                      re: “Few of your readers would know the names of her children”

                      Why wouldn’t the public know? She has a Twitter following of 92,400 and her Twitter profile states: “Mommy to Shay Adora & Kayleigh Imani”

                      Even her contemporaries KJ and Nurul don’t divulge the (real) names of their kids to the public. KJ refers to their nicknames Puma and Cougar.

                      Your habit of menegakkan benang basah is revealing your immensely kiasu nature. You’re aware, right?

                    4. “re: “Every Malay Muslim who criticises the government online is labelled a fake RBA operative by the Umno bloggers.”
                      Show one example.”

                      The Unspinners blog frequently accuses readers who post comments not supportive of the government of being RBA members, without proof.

                      To date, we do not even have evidence of the existence of the RBA.

                      “Even her contemporaries KJ and Nurul don’t divulge the (real) names of their kids to the public. KJ refers to their nicknames Puma and Cougar.”

                      Khairy frequently posts photos of his children on Instagram, Twitter, and his Rembau.net.my website.

                      “Your habit of menegakkan benang basah is revealing your immensely kiasu nature. You’re aware, right?”

                      You are actually quite kiasu repeating the same flimsy diatribe (re: wet strings) in every blog entry.

                    5. re: “To date, we do not even have evidence of the existence of the RBA.”

                      Try the Penang CM’s dozens of Special Officers, for a start.

                      re: “Khairy frequently posts photos of his children on Instagram, Twitter, and his Rembau.net.my website.”

                      KJ is Dapster Khairy. Therefore his behaviour sebiji macam Mama Dapster. Thanks for pointing out.

                      re: “You are actually quite kiasu repeating the same flimsy diatribe (re: wet strings) in every blog entry.”

                      You make this accusation and yet you are so obsessed (kiasu) as to want to comment on my “every blog entry”. If your spewing 2-minutes-hate habit of coming to my blog daily is not kiasu, then I dunno what is.

                    6. “Try the Penang CM’s dozens of Special Officers, for a start.”

                      The only ‘evidence’ I have seen of the RBA is a hastily put up list of random Facebook users who had commented or clicked ‘share’ on an article critical of the government. They even accused the Malaysian CEO of a Taiwanese electronics firm of being the RBA leader.

                      “KJ is Dapster Khairy. Therefore his behaviour sebiji macam Mama Dapster. Thanks for pointing out.”

                      Khairy is with UMNO, not the DAP. He is a UMNO Youth division leader, and a popular one at that too. It appears your animosity towards him began after he hired an ex-Star employee to join his team. Now that, is really ‘kiasu’.

                    7. re: “Khairy is with UMNO, not the DAP.”

                      So was Anwar. And look where he is now.

  6. What you didn’t say here, I will say it.

    Essentially, the Chinese want the Malays and other Natives to know where their places are. The lowest rung. This is what’s being drummed into the minds of the Malays and other Natives. If Malays and Natives believe that they don’t deserve the land, then the Chinese win. They plant this inferiority complex into the Malay and natives’ psyche. So those who collaborate with the Chinese validate what the Chinese want them to believe and accept all along, which is, the Malays and other Natives are nothing if they don’t “share” this land with them.

    There is still time. Don’t rush. Stay calm.

    Remember the saying “revenge is best serve as a cold dish”. Do it slowly, one step at a time.

    They want our votes. Malay votes. Muslim votes. That’s why they dress like us, speak like us in order to hoodwink us. This we already know.

    Why don’t we use this against them ? Remember, they want the government’s help and yet come election time, they vote for the opposition. We can do the same on them too.

    You want our votes ? Tell your party to field more Malay Muslim candidates. Then we vote for your party.

    To defeat the enemy, you must understand their methods and apply their methods on them.

    1. Why do you treat other races as your enemies? Yes some chinese are racist just as malays or indians too but why do you tar everyone with the same brush? We are a nation of diverse race, cultures and religions and we have been living in harmony with each other all this while. Why do we allow extremists whether it is malay or chinese or indian to destroy this?

  7. masalah mca dalam bn saperti ditelan mati emak, diluah mati bapak.

    ini kerana umno elite masih bergantung kepada sokongan taikun2 mca, (though the former knows the latter dah berubah kiblat atau ada 2 kiblat). they both are members of the exclusive umnoputera club, macam persatuan atau union jugak le!.

    kalau nak diharapkan sokongan dari taikun melayu, berapa kerat ada. mengenang budi adalah sifat melayu. zaman bapak2, depa boleh ‘kamcheng’ irrespective of race or belief, zaman anak2 sekarang cerita lain (anak & bapak berperang kerana $$$ & kuasa), bila sampai zaman cucu, huh…. i don’t have crystal ball.

  8. I wonder what is the difference between DAP-led and Pakatan government, now that the Tokong rejects Hudud.

    http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2014/05/08/Penang-Lim-Guan-Eng-Hudud/

    “I want to express that the Pakatan Rakyat state government does not agree with any implementation of hudud law in Penang.
    I am saying this not only as a DAP leader but also as Penang Chief Minister, and that is the state government’s stand,” said Guan Eng to reporters after launching the Padang Brown Food Complex upgrading project in Jalan Datuk Keramat, here.”

    Let us turn the tables here. In Malacca does the BN say it is an UMNO-led government? In Sarawak, is it a Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB)-led government or is it a BN government.

    Am I right to say the Penang, Selangor and Kelantan governments are not Pakatan governments but DAP-led, PKR-led and PAS-led governments respectively?

    Lidah bercabanglah ni!

    1. re: “the Penang, Selangor and Kelantan governments are not Pakatan governments but DAP-led, PKR-led and PAS-led governments respectively”

      Interesting point highlighted, Mulan.

      Gold for the Chinese-DAP, Glory for the Malay-PKR and Gospel for the Malay-PAS.

      The GREEDY politicians carving up the pie: Penang for DAP, Selangor for PKR, Kelantan for PAS. The Malays get the poorest state.

      The Kelantanese also get hudud which the Khalifah Umar ‘Lim’ Abdul Aziz administration leading Penang now says the state unconditionally rejects.

  9. For sure caesar will not accept brutus back but here in our beloved country we dont have caesar , we only have joker @ two face riddles as our leader ……morning said this and afternoon said that kind of person ….

  10. Who is this moron GR Kumar? What do you mean “Chinese method of success”? I wonder who got caught on camera boasting about his ability to influence the judiciary… that I presume you will argue that it is not corruption, bribery etc, just an Indian in his usual boastful way… and about betrayal, well I believe the Chinese may be good at that but you guys are the master, perhaps even reaching the Jedi level. There!

    1. No one masters the art of betrayal in Malaysia better than the people in UMNO. The countless power struggles, putsches, and backstabbing in the party is a telling tale.

      Now Mahathir is seeking the moment to plunge his dagger into the back of Najib in the hopes to secure his legacy.

      Et tu, Madey.

      1. So are you suggesting Anwar DID NOT master the art of betrayal against his sifu master?

        Likewise Chinese voters DID NOT master the art of betrayal against UMNO/BN. Simply because in both cases, the backstabbers failed.

        I wonder if UMNO/BN has figured out already that they don’t need Chinese vote to win election and they just ignored Wee Ka Siong’s empty threat.

        1. Everywhere on earth, some men are good, some others are bad, while there are the ugly ones, who make bad appear to be good.

  11. TDM seems to be quite determined to keep MCA within BN. As usual he probably has some good reasons why.

    The fictional Sicilian, Don Vito Corleone, the Godfather was quoted as telling his son, the new Don, Michael Corleone this: Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.

    There is also an Italian proverb that goes like this: “Dai nemici mi guardo io dagli amici mi guardi dio!”

    “I can protect myself from my enemies, may God protect me from my friends.”

  12. For all the good things that Dr M has done, its unfortunate that he steadfastly refused to acknowledge the fact that Singapore has transformed from pig farms to the sky scrapers with 1st world financial institutions…all based on meritocracy.

    It is utter nonsence for soomeone as intelligent as him to state “The DAP does not believe in sharing between the races. It believes in meritocracy…”. What logic is that?

    It is when you do not believes in meritrocracy that you have students scoring 8As having to secure a place in a foreign institution because his place has been given to another student with 4As because its his birth right. And the consequences of this? Go figure….

    1. re : “For all the good things that Dr M has done, its unfortunate that he steadfastly refused to acknowledge the fact that Singapore has transformed from pig farms to the sky scrapers with 1st world financial institutions…all based on meritocracy.
      It is utter nonsence for someone as intelligent as him to state “The DAP does not believe in sharing between the races. It believes in meritocracy…”. What logic is that?”

      Woah! uttering calumnies off the top of your head, aren’t you?

      Have you evaluated the figures and surveys pertaining to Singapore’s socio-economic indexes? Care to present us your rational appreciation after you’ve digested the reality down-to-earth?

      http://thehearttruths.com/2014/05/06/singapore-first-world-economy-first-world-costs-third-world-everything-else/

      1. That lies your “problem”. You digest “reality” from indexes. Just compare the route from the two international airports to the cities, among other things…res ipsa loquitur!!

        Even our dear Mrs Prime Minister was reported in our local news media to have commented positively on her experience driving along the route from Changi airport to the city. Sure we can do more with the ample resources we have?

        There should not be the idea that anyone should have the birth right to govern a country… otherwise, the red indians and the aborigines should rung the US and Australia, right?

        1. Ahh… there you go… perhaps the Malays would be better off put in camps. A free and independent Malay is a nuisance too many for your melitoclasi kinds is it? Why are back anyway? Let me guess, they don’t made you a president do they? What was the name again?

        2. When in Malaysia speak Malaysian lah Casper; no need to latinize your rhetorics for effect because it doesn’t do anything for your argument.

          By the way, for anyone who has studied the social sciences, it would be quite cavalier to deny social research reports that provide indexes and measures of the elements involving the specific issue at hand. Whether the results of the research are an accurate and precise explanation of the phenomenon may be disputed or accepted with sound arguments? In any case the thinking person who is interested in that subject should “digest” the report with intelligence and intellectual humility.

          It is not that “meritocracy” is not a social virtue in itself: no we are not challenging that contention. However, you appear to be utterly mesmerized by skyscrapers and financial institutions that have developed in Singapore, quite unaware that Singapore stands at 5th place in the crony/capitalism index just behind Malaysia at 3rd place. Doesn’t this fact break down your wholehearted appreciation of Singapore’s “meritocratic administration”.

          Anyhow, one doesn’t have to look beyond the DAP’s recent internal CEC elections to witness cheating and deception at work among its own office bearers. Casper, you sure have a right to govern a country, if the people want you, but are you intelligent and honest enough not to misrepresent your Penang political idols? Otherwise it would be prudent to leave out Red Indians and Aborigines from the US and Australia, who have no bearing on your high level pig-farm dissertation.

          Peruse the index below with a logical mind before deciding whether this is social meritocracy at work. Casper, bet you did not peruse the article and data provided in my comments above did you? Otherwise you would have gotten to the point at the bottom of it all.

          The index aims to measure if there is any increasing trend on the number of economic rent-seekers. The assumption behind is that due to the favorable political policies set by officials of the government, the tycoons are increasing their wealth and interests. As a result, they obtain a larger portions of the fruits of people’s labor, instead of generating more wealth for the whole society.

          In some extreme cases, some of the favored suppliers become influential on the establishment and application of the business-impacting laws of the country and thus the citizens absorb the tax for purchasing the overpriced products supplied by the favored corporations.

          1. Chris : I am sorry to disappoint you – I do speak like a Malaysian. Its only when I write. But why would you even want to control how someone speaks or writes? Can I tell you to stop writing like an American, be more Malaysian in your “argument”. But that would be going down to where you are, wouldn’t it?

            Read again what I initially wrote and read it in its context. There was never the claim that meritocracy is the be-all and end-all. There are other elements that make a country successful. But like all indexes, there were assumptions that you have obviously made and consequently attributed them to me. If you are so fixated with indexes, you have to learn to read properly and with a critical mind.

            It doesnt matter how you look at it. It is an UNDISPUTED fact that Singapore is doing better than our country on ALL fronts. Better than our other neighbours as well – Indonesia, Thailand and further north if you like. Countries that have far more resources than that tiny red dot. To start a useful credible discussion, you have to first acknowledge this!!

            We have financial regulations introduced years before Singapore did but implementation that is lights years behind. Just look at those at the table negotiating the land swap deal in Singapore. We screwed up. Period. Who in the current line up of politicians in our country have the balls (let alone the intellect) to debate with the old man across the causeway? You name me one and I will show you a pig that can fly.

            AND Chris, I raised meritocracy in the context of Dr M’s article in his blog. Clearly you have missed the wood for the trees.

    2. I have one word for that ‘meritocracy’ you seem to hold so dearly that you believe it is a panacea for all the illness that hinder nation’s development, ‘crock of S**T’. No one can achieve what they have without the help of others.

      Where is your meritocracy when a Malay with higher education than his Chinese counterpart in the private sector gets a lower pay?

      Do you really think we are all that stupid to believe this meritocracy nonsense you are blabbering about? Yes, by we I mean the Malays.

      Go figure is right..

    3. ‘the fact that Singapore has transformed from pig farms to the sky scrapers with 1st world financial institutions…all based on meritocracy.’

      Haiya, Casper, how la to emulate gloly singapore, here, in Ma Lay Sey Lei Ahh, want to lelocate one pig farm for health and environmental leasons oso, the Cinas already want to leport to UN wor?!

      An Chua? Lu can go figure that ahh?

      Melitoclasi meh ahh?

      1. Penat dah nak komen pasal Singapork ni. Kalau islam1st rajin pergi jengah blog the real Singapore macam-macam ada, sampai 87% percent Malaysian PR pun tak sanggup nak tukar kewarganegaraan jadi Singaporean.

        1. LOL terima kasih, kita dah tahu dah Temasik tu hanya indah khabar dari rupa, tapi puak-puak lembu dicucuk hidung macam si hantu Casper tu masih tak sedar diri!

      2. In govt service where I have many friends the non-bumi is always bypassed when it comes to promotions by less qualified bumis. That is why many opted for early retirement or resignation. What say you now? Melitoclasi oh?

    4. Go figure.., did you say..? Well.., here’s figured out already.

      It is very true that DAP does not believe in sharing between the races, but believes in meritocracy. And, that is the logic of merit in DAP.

      Be advised that.., Democracy has nothing to do with meritocracy, it has do with numbers.., i.e. the number of votes garnered during democratic election process, Understand..!?

      Therefore, if the Malays are less intelligent than the Chinese in terms academic ability, however the Malays garner more votes than the Chinese in a democratic process and becomes the majority, then the Malays are even more stupid by allowing a more meritorious Chinese student for a place in any institution of higher learning instead of lesser meritorious Malay student, despite realising that the Chinese were all-out against and never even gave a single vote to the Malays during the democratic process.

      Because, at the end of the day it is more likely that the accomplished Chinese student will eventually stab the Malays in the back, even though it was the Malays who gave them the opportunity for further studies. And, that is the possible consequence.

      So again, democracy has nothing to do with meritocracy. Understand..!?

      P.S.> BTW.., Singapore is still a considered a ‘pig-farm’ to be used, manipulated & disposed-off at the will of those damn Zionists & their Western lackeys. And.., DAP (like PAP) seem to smell the stench of a pig sty.

      1. Forever trying to play catch up with Singapore and emulating everything (almost) that Singapore have been doing. Malaysia will do well if we have capable and forward thinking people like those in Singapore…I only see hope in our younger generation of politicians like KJ etc.

        The old guards (perhaps with the exception of Dr M and 2-3 others) were and still are more concerned with taking care of their retirement plans than taking care of the country…. I have been back here 7 years and while Malaysia is still far far better than most countries in Europe including France, still there is no harm to learn from others (even from the neighbours and enemies) the good habits, good policies etc… dont be blinded by your hatred.

        1. Casper, bringing up Singapore will trigger an adverse reaction from the extremists populating Helen’s blog.

          Their reason for their reaction is simple; Singapore is a nation of non-Malay non-Muslims that has done relatively well globally, despite having no natural resources, and even having to import water from its northern neighbour. The island republic stands in contrast to the wasted potential of our nation, and a testament to the shortcomings of the Ketuanan Melayu supremacist ideology.

          1. AC-DC : I cannot agree with you more. The best and loudest reply to all these is to use exercise vote wisely.

  13. Ms H. As the Chinese, Malaysian Chinese were purported to have voted over 90% for the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP in the 13th General Elections which caused them to end up completely isolated up a greasy pole of no return, and subsequent events have proven that a Government can move forward without their physical presence in the Cabinet.

    It brings to mind how the British treated the Chinese when they were in power in British Malaya. Only 2-3 prominent Chinese lawyers were appointed to the Legislative Council. The coiuntry was administered smoothly and its colonial economy did not so much to have had a hiccup !

    Why ? THE CHINESE, THE MALAYSIAN CHINESE DID NOT KNOW HOW TO BE EFFECTIVE IN A DEMOCRACY AND WENT AGAINST THEIR NORM OF VOTING FOR THE INCUMBENT GOVERNMENT ALL OVER THE WORLD ! They are not that clever after all being beset with the WRONG GODS !

    The BN Government as led by the UMNO with the 15 component parties would have done very well without them.

    THE BRITISH HAVE SHOWN THE WAY !

    1. re: “It brings to mind how the British treated the Chinese when they were in power in British Malaya.”

      The British did not recognize Christians as Chinese.

      1. Ms H. The British were and are right. It confirms what I have been saying all the time that the British recognised the real Chinese as those who practised Chinese customs and religious practices. This bunch of impersonators is just being OPPORTUNISTIC POURING OIL ONTO THE FIRE. More on their sinsiter backers, BELIEVE IT OR NOT

        http://www.tremeritus.com/2014/05ware-of-tpp/ and its interesting comments.

        We are duty bound to sound the clarion call to our beloved Malaysia and our Malay and Indian and Chinese compatriots when phantom hands want to diddle us toe EXTINCTION. This is no joke or paranoia (a common Singaporean word)

        1. Ms H. The British had the word ‘dialect’ in all the official forms so that the different behavioural characteristics of the Chinese applicant are known to the authorities in advance. The brilliant fellow made use of this indicator of the Chinese too if you read his books carefully.

          The British were aware that the different types of Chinese behaved differently even though they apparently look the same. They sent the Police Cadets for 6 months training on the spot to Swatow, Amoy and Canton.

          I can differentiate the physical features amongst these different Chinese due to years of practice. For example all the fair and horse faced actresses speaking bad Cantonese on TVB are Shanghainese ! Co and check !

        2. Ms H. I give you an interesting puzzle. HOW MANY SPIES CAN YOU SPOT FROM THE PICS AND DESCRIPTIONS IN THE NEW STRAITS TIMES STREET CENTRAL PAGE 8, MARCH 8 2014. Hint – diplomats, military attaches, journalists, socialites, important Civil Servants, swallows, ducks, etc. No baksheesh for getting full marks !

          Our beloved KL is now the espionage centre of the World.

          1. Helen, read the contents in its context…Chinese “nationality”. There is a difference between this and “race”. Disappointing to say the least…

            1. Granted that there is a difference between race and nationality.

              It is not a difference, however, that is recognised by the DAP when LKS, LGE and their party backed Hannah Yeoh’s petition – as well as Tanjong MP Ng Wei Aik’s – when she wanted the KETURUNAN of her (and Ng’s) baby recorded as “Anak Malaysia” instead of Indian (Chinese).

              Wrt the Federated Malay States the Secretary for Chinese Affairs Enactment 1899, you must also take into account the context of the times.

              We’re talking the FMS which were Selangor, Perak, NS and Pahang some 115 years ago. That was way before the non-Straits Settlement Chinese got their Merdeka citizenship.

              In 1899 in Selangor, Perak etc, the Chinese were transient labour. They were also China ‘nationals’. These migrants workers were not certainly regarded as Malaysian/Malayan citizens.

              Therefore it was hardly amiss for Malaya to frame the parameters of Chineseness at the turn of the 19th century within the scope of Chinese nationality just like how today being Malay is not separated from being Muslim.

  14. Ms H. I like to point out that the MCA is not Brutus but Cleopatra and Caesar is not Caesar but Antony. So it is OK for Antony to take back Cleopatra again. It is only fun and games. Here is a pointer in MCA’s history.

    After its heavy defeat in the 1969 General Elections, thereafter, the taunting and the street demonstrations took sway right up to 13th May 1969.

    At 2.30 p.m. on that ominous day, Tan Sri Tan Siew Sin took the MCA out of the Alliance. The MCA Constitution at the appropriate time was the prerogative of the President – a one man show or a dictatorship. This was not rectified until after he resigned in April 1994.

    At 2.30 p.m. I was warned by my Malay friends and tension built up to 5 p.m. when the riots erupted in the Princes Road ( Jalan Raja Muda, Kuala Lumpur ) and spread slowly down Batu Road ( Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman ).

    At 8.30 p.m. the 5th Battalion Royal Malay Regiment was brought into Kuala Lumpur. They were bivouacked opposite my brother’s house and were well behaved and disciplined.

    By 10 a.m. a curfew over the town was announced by RTM and that the MCA had rejoined the Cabinet. By this time, many innocent lives were lost – one was my favourite char kway teow seller in Batu Road.
