The EvangeliSTAR and their Voices are taking their ‘Moderation’ campaign into its next phase.
Moving into the colleges and universities, the evangelistas will no doubt be telling students that the ultra right-wingers are ““hate-spewing, divisive, race-obsessed ignoramuses” who are “racist, extremist and bigots” devoid of any “rational and balanced views” – see Wong Chun Wai’s most recent column yesterday.
Does Najib Razak support the J-Star‘s agenda, considering that his NGO headed by Saifuddin Abdullah is working hand-in-glove with the EvangeliSTAR?
Saifuddin’s involvement also indicates that government money is being spent on helping the evangelistas penetrate into the colleges and universities to reach young minds.

Acceptance of the evangelista Peace & Harmony
The Nest of Evangelistas has been running a so-called ‘Voices of Moderation’ campaign purportedly to promote:
- Peaceful co-existence
How much funding exactly is the Prime Minister’s Department channelling to this J-Star “moderates” project?
Ada bikin serupa cakap?
Let’s look at the J-Star‘s “Brave Views, Bold Ideas” advertisement messages, in the order that the personalities/public figures appear in the MCA media’s poster campaign.
• Marina Mahathir: “If politicians are for the people, why do they insist on dividing us?”
My view: Now, now, Marina mustn’t hedge. It is only fair that she be upfront and tell us specifically who are the divisive politicians she has in mind.
• Tan Sri Ramon Navaratnam: “As loyal Malaysians, we must reject and fight extremism – before it is too late!”
My view: What does the Tan Sri mean by “extremism”? Can give one example?
• Wong Chun Wai: “Stand up against religious and racial bigots, that’s the only way to keep the country moderate.”
My view: I’m discussing Wong’s message at length – please scroll down.

Does Najib Razak listen to other advisers? Why is he unwilling to lend Tun an ear?
• Azmi Sharom: “If we value the democratic process, we must defend it and continue to take part in it.”
BELOW: “the democratic process” in action … ‘Love’ students demo in solidarity with Azmi over his sedition charge
• Zainah Anwar: “Too many of us have remained silent while our democracy is being trampled.”
My view: Democracy means different things to different people. What rights and freedoms is Zainah (Sisters In Islam co-founder) referring to in particular?
• Zaid Ibrahim: “We must be allowed to develop critical, questioning minds to be empowered in a modern Malaysia.”
My view: Fair enough. I hope that Datuk Zaid will speak up against the Rottweillers who savagely maul anyone venturing to put forward critical questions directed at the Pakatan leadership. Please refer to Dr Kua Kia Soong HERE on the Rotties.
BELOW: Karim Raslan and Puan Prada
• Karim Raslan: “We cannot fulfil our potential if we remain obsessed with race and religion.”
My view: In which case, I would be very curious as to Karim’s opinion on Articles 3 and 153 of the Federal Constitution.
• Wan Saiful Wan Jan: “Liberalism is not an alien concept. It is the founding philosophy of this nation.”
My view: On this score, Isma should extend an invitation to him for a public debate.
• Tan Sri Razali Ismail: “This country requires genuine reconciliation and all parties must close ranks for the sake of the country.”
My view: You mean reconcile with the Alvins and the Vivians? Tall order!
BELOW: Marina and Niki Cheong
• Idris Jala: “We need to be an inclusive society to transform Malaysia into a high income nation.”
He is the cabinet minister in charge of Pemandu and who oversees TalentCorp. What is he transforming Malaysia into?
• Niki Cheong: “Are we wrong in wanting a better Malaysia, even if it differs from what some of us think it should be?”
My view: What exactly about the status quo is he objecting to, and what aspect of Malaysia does he want to “Ubah” /change?
The above, briefly, are my views on the J-Star‘s syok sendiri self promo. What do you, my dear readers, think of the J-Star project?
Anti-“religious and racial bigots”
J-Star CEO , the uber evangelista Wong Chun Wai, provided a review of his organization’s ‘Voices of Moderation’ campaign in his newspaper column recently on Sunday.
In his article ‘Keep pushing for moderation‘, Chun Wai vented at his usual targets.
Presuming to speak for Malaysians, he said the rakyat “were fed up of politicians, or any group or individuals, who used race and religion to win support”.
“They were likewise fed up of those politicians who maintained a deafening silence as the voices of some racist personalities and groups grew louder,” Chun Wai wrote.
Zainah Anwar: “We are all Allah’s children” (nobody educated her that Allah does not beget and nor is He begotten?)
Chun Wai also wrote:
“A small number of right-wingers, known for their ultra-nationalistic views, posted angry statements on their blogs but offered no rational and balanced view apart from making sweeping personal remarks.”
Together with Najib pet Saifuddin, who heads Najib’s NGO the Global Movement of Moderates, the next move by Chun Wai and his J-Star “would be to reach the young in our colleges and universities”.
He said that together with the GMM, “we are now charting our plans on how we can reach the 60 tertiary institutions spread across the nation”.
The evangelistas are moving into the campuses to conquer minds while the Minister of Youth is busy doing ice bucket, selfies and zumba.
