Yesterday Free Malaysia Today published an editorial titled ‘A veiled threat’ which was a scathing attack on Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin who was alleged to have issued a veiled threat implying that “Malaysia may experience another bloodbath” (FMT‘s words).
The FMT editorial said a number of things that were inciting and seditious. The ‘FMT says’ article has since been taken down both from the news portal’s website and its Facebook.
“Only interested in advancing the interests of his own race”
Even though the “veiled threat” article has been withdrawn, there is as always the digital trail. The headline still shows up on a Google search.
And it was also aggregated by Malaysia Today which, as at this time of writing, maintains a portion of the article available for reading.
Nonetheless what you see in Malaysia Today is only a few paragraphs. The latter half of the FMT article is more incendiary but I won’t reproduce the contents here since they are clearly seditious.
Hatred fanned by pro-Christian media
What is most essential about the unending attacks on Muhyiddin and his “Malay first” credentials is the deep-seated resentment and accusation of racism flung by the media opinion leaders and shapers. Their own hatred against Umno, against the “Malay authorities” and the Malay-centric country as a whole can hardly be veiled anymore.
The pattern of this accusation – i.e. Malay Firstness equals racist – has been played out previously in the pro-opposition media albeit in the past, the attacks have been more subtle unlike FMT‘s full frontal yesterday.
You can, for example, see in the archived article below how the Bintang Lima stuck its poison-tipped scissors blades into Muhyiddin’s back. The J-Star headline ‘Muhyiddin: I’m no racist‘ is deliberate in order to put the DPM on the defensive.
Likewise, the evangeliSTAR carried another headline that said ‘Umno not racist: Najib‘.
Such headlines, like it or not, compel readers into wondering whether there could be any truth really in the allegation so much so that the president and deputy president of Umno have had to step forward to issue denials.
J-Star is evangeliSTAR
“Umno racist” is a trope that runs throughout the MCA-owned paper.
The J-Star is so pro-DAP that its editors tweeted 10 times the news of Hannah Yeoh’s appointment as Selangor Speaker in the short span of 24 hours. See the Twitter timeline screenshots HERE.
As we’re aware, Hannah’s “Umno racist! Umno racist!” screeches are legendary.
The paper’s evangelista flavour is pungent to the point that the paper gave Hannah Yeoh two big publicity write-ups over a single weekend on her participation in the lantern festival. Whereas Deputy Minister Chua Tee Yong who had officiated the 1Malaysia Mooncake and Lantern Festival in Petaling Jaya (J-Star‘s own backyard) was not even mentioned by the paper.
Chua’s GE13 campaign for the Labis Parliament seat was furthermore subtly sabotaged by the Scissorati’s backstabbing coverage which favoured his DAP challenger S. Ramakrishnan.
There you go – see below. The DAP senator, who lost in Labis to MCA’s Chua only by a whisker, once tweeted “Umno ada banyak racist sokongnya”. And the MCA newspaper pula banyak sokong Ramakrishnan.
What kind of people are they?
Who reads FMT, The J-Star, The Malaysian Insider and Malaysiakini?
When it was reported that Wanita MCA vice chairman Lim Bee Kau had succumbed to cancer, 20 percent of J-Star readers were “HAPPY”, 20 percent “INSPIRED” and 20 percent “AMUSED” at the news. Only 40 percent were “SAD” to hear of her death. See screenshot of J-Star readers feedback HERE.
It is quite astounding how the Dapsters can manage to keep a straight face when they taunt pro-establishment supporters as “haters”.
I’m sure you’re all familiar by now with the kind of comments and attitude shown by the opposition supporters. But below is one slagging the Yang DiPertua of Isma’s Majlis Syura which takes the cake:
“Sharipudin Ab Kadir, please wipe the obvious traces of shit at both sides of your lips before you talk. There is only one race in this world, and that is the HUMAN RACE. The rest are RACISTS and you belong to the latter.”
Politics of Hate
Hatred is the DAP’s domain.
So is hypocrisy.
Muslimah masquerader Hannah Yeoh publicly prays “for the safety of the little boy who was kidnapped”, for (another missing boy’s) “safety and for God’s comfort & peace for his parents”, for the “safety and some peace at home” of Ambiga, “for the safety of ur entire household” (Nurul Izzah’s) but has no prayer at all for the safety of the Palestinians in Gaza.
Never forget that the Scissorati are the biggest cheerleader of the DAP evangelista politicians. In fact, The J-Star is crawling with evangelistas.
The latest attack on Muhyiddin comes from FMT but what was said and how it was said by the seditious editorial is only a more virulent strain of what we have already been exposed to in Malaysia’s English language media which is totally dominated by the opposition.
