Dark spirits are whiskey, brandy, scotch and bourbon. Clear spirits are vodka, gin, rum and tequila.
Happy spirits refer to the drinks selection available at stores selling liquor and in watering holes such as pubs, clubs and bars.
Holey spirit refers to DAP evangelistas whose stories are so full of holes that you must be real drunk on J-Juice to believe them.
“Visibly happy” Najib at MCA assembly
The J-Star today carried an edifying report about the prime minister’s star turn at the MCA dewan.
You really need to imbibe copious amounts of J-Juice before you dig into the EvangeliSTAR article headlined ‘Feel-good factor is back in MCA‘. It is not something one can read while sober.
Secondly, the editors further claim that “glory at the next general election is within reach”. They’re clearly in Cloud Cuckoo Land.
Thirdly, consider the words that Si Gunting Dalam Lipatan employed in the Najib article:
• “a visibly happy Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak”
• “He certainly endeared himself to the [MCA] delegates”
• delegates “gave him their full attention”
• Najib’s message was “heart-warming”
• Najib “proudly shared” that his son [Ji Ping] is well-versed in Mandarin
• Najib gave “thumbs up” to the MCA Transformation Plan
• “The feel-good factor has returned to MCA”
• “hopefully the rakyat who had turned away from the party will consider giving it another chance”
14 Oct 2013
On this date Oct 14 a year ago, Lim Kit Siang made a press statement about Johor as the key battleground for the DAP’s vision of a Malaysian Dream.
Malaysian Dream is defined by the DAP as “a unifying factor for all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion or region” and “a rallying point of unity for all races in the country”.
The phrase “Malaysian Dream” occurs 10 times in Kit Siang’s press release. It is touted as the “antidote to the revival of extremist and intolerant racist politics” in Malaysia.
(My related October 2013 blog posting archived here.)
Even Kit Siang can get Malay support, and in Johor some more
Kit Siang wrote that he won his Johor Parliament seat in Gelang Patang despite Dr Mahathir and Johorean Muhyiddin-“Malay First” actively campaigning against him there.
“Mahathir’s allegations and lies failed to make any impression on the voters, particularly the Malay voters,” Kit Siang declared.
Tun is accused of having conducted an “irresponsible and reckless campaign” – a phrase repeated thrice in Kit Siang’s press statement – “to racialise Gelang Patah”, another phrase repeated thrice also.
The claims that DAP wanted to create a “racial confrontation” and was “seeking to incite the Chinese to hate the Malays” are outrageous lies, Kit Siang insisted.
He added that the allegation saying “Chinese in Malaysia were out to oust the political power of the Malays and to dominate Malaysian politics” was nothing short of preposterous.
Johor is Umno’s last redoubt
Kit Siang described Johor as the state which had wrought the greatest changes in GE13.
He highlighted that during the last general election, Pakatan had made such great inroads into Johor so much so the opposition is now only one seat short of denying BN its two-thirds majority in the state assembly.
DAP won 13 out of the 14 DUN seats it contested in Johor. The party’s 13 winning candidates are all Chinese. The only DAP candidate to lose in his bid to become a Johor Adun was an Indian fler.
Note also DAP’s clean sweep in the other major states – winning 19 out of the 19 DUN seats it contested in Penang, 18 out of 18 in Perak, 15 out of 15 in Selangor and 11 out of 11 in Negeri Sembilan.
Ketika Umno-PPTA masih tidur lena
Kit Siang said the Ini Kali Lah campaign had successfully ended Umno and MCA’s “hitherto unchallenged stranglehold” on Johor as a BN fixed deposit. Between the 2008 and 2013 elections, Pakatan DUN seats in Johor tripled from six to 18.
Meanwhile, DAP is actively getting the people of Johor to play a leading role to fulfill the party’s cherished Malaysian Dream. A DAP victory will effectively put an end to the Politics of Race as well as Malay Malaysia, which is to be replaced by the colour-blind Firster dream of Malaysia for all Malaysians.
Lim Jr: Son of the Father
On this date Oct 14 a year ago, Lim Guan Eng tweeted to Idris Jala asking the evangelist cabinet minister to explain why the Christians were being bullied.
Guan Eng’s challenge to Idris was made in the wake of the Court of Appeal decision on the ‘Allah’ case brought by the Herald and the Church.
On the same day 14 Oct 2013 too, Ambiga tweeted @NajibRazak and @Khairykj telling them that they cannot remain silent and allow others to set the agenda.
Ambiga lah, Idris lah, Chun Wai lah … the PM listens to them at his peril
