The Malay Street does not believe that the Chinese Tsunami could have been possible without the collusion of the MCA.
Throughout the GE13 campaign, the MCA paper was cheering on Pakatan. The J-Star is a nest of evangelistas.
The following is what former Info Minister and ex-Utusan Group Editor Zainuddin Maidin disclosed of the MCA newsroom shenanigans:
“Saya mendapat khabar beberapa orang pengarang-pengarang kanan The Star tidak lagi dapat menahan perasaan kecewa dan sedih mereka apabila BN diumumkan menang pada malam 5 Mei itu walaupun pada mulanya mereka telah meloncat-loncat kegembiraan kerana kemaraan Pakatan Rakyat.”
Below are screen captures of a Google search on J-Star headlines appearing on the eve (4 May 2014) as well as on polling day:
‘Malaysian Spring is hope for a better country …’ (headline)
‘Pakatan Rakyat has run Selangor capably …’ (headline)
“Anwar Ibrahim has declared that Pakatan Rakyat will win its way to Putrajaya” (first paragraph)
“Anwar said he was optimistic for Pakatan Rakyat despite the claim of vote buying and the use of foreigners to support BN” (second paragraph)
Nyata J-Star sebilah Gunting Dalam Lipatan.
Below is what J-Star CEO Wong Chun Wai wrote on election eve (May 4):
“The crowd at every DAP ceramah in major towns across the nation has been massive. The mostly Chinese crowd flocks to these political talks by the thousands to cheer the DAP leaders, and when Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim speaks, they are all convinced that, this time, Pakatan Rakyat will surely take over Putrajaya.
“In short, this is it – going by the Pakatan battle cry of ini kali lah and ubah.
“At these mega gatherings, DAP strongman Lim Kit Siang leads the crowd in a chorus, in Mandarin, that on May 5, the Federal Government will be changed.
“Caught up in the euphoria, many political groupies often travel from constituency to constituency, every night, to listen to their heroes.
“Many are convinced that on May 5, change will happen, and they want to be part of the history because Pakatan leaders will be in charge.
“It would not be wrong to say that among some sections of the DAP loyalists, the mood has reached a hysterical, or even fanatical, level. So whatever one may say about the right to choose in a democracy, the Chinese who support Barisan Nasional are branded as “traitors” and “running dogs” by these groups.
“At these ceramah, DAP leaders are already talking openly of throwing Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad into jail. Even Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor has not been spared.”
Why should Najib Razak be branded a racist for spontaneously uttering the phrase “Chinese Tsunami” upon learning of the devastating election results when only a day earlier Wong Chun Wai, the J-Star then Group Editor, had published a headline that said “Chinese storm”?
After all, Wong’s paper belongs to the country’s biggest “Chinese” political party. And the MCA media itself confessed the “Chinese storm” aspiration a day before Najib’s utterance.
Evangelista Wong himself admitted that the mood of the Chinese was “hysterical, or even fanatical”. He further reported: “DAP leaders are already talking openly of throwing Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad into jail.”
This being so was Najib, in saying the “Chinese Tsunami” word, some kind of “racist” instigator as his critics would suggest?
Enough is enough of the bullying. I’m sure a lot of BN leaders and supporters are sick and tired of being called “racists”, “extremists”, “bigots” and “hatemongers” by the Chinese and the Christians.
And what about the 10 percent the Chinese who refused to support DAP or the opposition? We’re called “traitors” and “running dogs” by the Dapsters who thought Putrajaya was in their hand (Wong revealed this name calling in his ‘Chinese storm’ article).
Why does MCA regard BN as its enemy?
As an ordinary Netizen greeting the news today, I must say I’m happy to hear that MCA is given only one ministry – Transport.
For the rest of the MCA Cabinet appointments, read HERE.
Since the MCA is now part of the government, it must stop behaving like the DAP.
Most recently, Wong Chun Wai castigated the Minister of Islam Jamil Khir Baharom as being “Way out of line!” for clarifying that Malaysia is not a secular country.
It is the MCA and its Scissorati who are way out of line.
However I believe that Najib has given a subtle signal today through his snub of the MCA. Umno is smart enough to figure out the next move.
