Lim Kit Siang has accused Permatang Pauh Umno division chairman Mohd Zaidi Mohd Said of making an “extremist and incendiary hate speech” and engaging in “Chinese-bashing” at the party’s recent general assembly.
The DAP Mursyidul Am claimed that the Penang delegate had “seriously undermined interracial and inter-religious peace and harmony in the country with his hate speech that the success of Penang was because of the illegal businesses and crimes ‘in broad daylight’ committed by the Chinese in the state”.
Grandpapa Dapster further alleged that Zaidi had been “provocative” and playing up the “politics of fear, hate and lies”.
Grandpapa, Papa and Mama Dapster
Meanwhile Lim Guan Eng labelled Zaidi “the racist face of Umno”. Grandpapa’s Dapster son also accused the Umno man of stirring racial sentiments.
The Penang Chief Minister wants police to investigate Zaidi for criminal defamation of the Chinese race – an action which Papa Dapster said was “necessary to defend the dignity and honour of Penangites” who are majority Chinese.
(Mama Dapster presides over Jerusubang Sin City and we’ll come to her kawasan lubuk maksiat shortly.) But first let’s get to the bottom of what Zaidi uttered at the assembly and you can evaluate its veracity for yourself.
Zaidi must stand his ground
It is important that the Umno Permatang Pauh chief stick to his guns if he believes in the saying, ‘berani kerana benar’. Who knows, there’s even a chance that he could become the next Permatang Pauh Umno MP by riding on the Malay backlash that’s sure to come in GE14.
Now, is what Zaidi said a “hate crime” and “lies” (Kit Siang’s words) or is it merely the truth?
Below is the relevant excerpt from Zaidi’s speech:
“… tetapi kita Umno, pemimpin kita kadang-kadang amat berhemah. Kita begitu takut untuk menjentik walau sedikitpun kesalahan yang dilakukan oleh orang-orang Cina. Kita tahu bahawa kekuatan ekonomi orang Cina kadang-kadang dijana melalui perniagaan-perniagaan haram – melalui perjudian, melalui pelacuran, melalui maksiat, melalui berbagai perniagaan haram tetapi di mana tindakan penguatkuasa kita?” […]
“Kita tahu bahawa kekuatan mereka ini bergantung kepada perniagaan haram, rumah-rumah hiburan yang beroperasi hingga sampai ke pagi. Mereka mengaut keuntungan yang begitu hebat tetapi kita biarkan. Kalau kita bersungguh-sungguh untuk membanteras segala sumber ekonomi haram ini, saya percaya Cina di Pulau Pinang juga akan takut dan menghormati kerajaan Melayu yang ada pada ketika ini …”
Zaidi makes a valid point about how kerajaan Melayu yang ada pada ketika ini tidak dihormati apatah lagi digeruni orang Cina, bukan sahaja di Pulau Pinang malah di mana-mana jua.
Cina berani pijak kepala sebab sesetengah pemimpin Umno yang lembik memilih untuk manjakan mereka.
And as long as Umno leaders still choose to project themselves as Ah Jib Gor, then surely the Dapster family will continue their present behaviour with total impunity.
Bak Kut Teh is not pork, konon
In denial, in denial, in denial …
Zaidi’s description of how “segelintir” orang Cina in Penang are conducting illegal trade and profiting from vice had set off the usual ballistic bristling and tiresome posturing by some in the Chinese community.
Well of course lah, the Chinese have got nothing at all to do with ah longs (loansharks), bookies, tai kors (gangsters), drug lords and other kingpins of crime.
Don’t you know that many Chinese have today become good Christians who believe that “Righteousness exalts a nation” – a verse taken from the Bible?
Self-righteous most high class
Prostitutes in multiracial Malaysia are “beyond race” (coming in the colours of diversity) but who are the pimps in Malaysia? Are they the Indians? The Malays? The Dayaks?
Lim Guan Eng berated Zaidi saying that the latter should not “twist and turn” to claim that he was misinterpreted.
Lim Junior’s scolding is rich coming from the masters of the Porky Principle, an endeavour which has exalted putar-belit into an art form.
Examples of the Porky Principle in practice – Alvin’s Bak Kut Teh is halal chicken, some Malays also say “Allah s.a.w.” what, the DAP evangelistas are only following Chinese tradition what when they don a tudung to go a-visiting the mosques
See, Chinese women wear tudung
Chinese wear tudung to work
Our FirstLady Speaker really should wear tudung when she goes to office too and not only when she occupies mosques and suraus.
Jerusubang Sin City
It is most likely that Subang Jaya has the most massage parlours in the whole of Malaysia. Can anyone think of any other place in Malaysia that has as many entertainment outlets, both licenced and unlicenced?
Even Tun Daim dah sound.
The former finance minister “brought up the mushrooming of ‘hundreds of foot and reflexology centres’ and implied these were fronts for shady businesses and were ‘linked to certain personalities in the state government’.” – see ‘Daim: PR leaders just as unscrupulous as BN’s‘ (FMT, 7 Nov 2014)
Sakit mata tengok Subang Jaya ni
Rumah urut melambak-lambak
“Subang Jaya City of Sin”
What kind of business in a commercial district throws out used mattresses?
Takkan lah Mem Besar Selangor tak tahu?
The ‘Chinese-bashing’ whinge
When the haram activities of the Chinese are spoken about, the speakers are immediately accused of bashing the Chinese community. Cannot say one (not allowed to be mentioned).
Zaidi who brought up the matter of “perniagaan haram” in Penang is accused of “sedition” by Kit Siang – pula! – in double quick time.
The Umno chieftain believes Chinese economic strength is sometimes (“kadang-kadang”) generated through illegal means. Actually, it’s not only the economic but also Chinese political power than comes from this ‘we respect no boundaries’ approach.
DAP evangelistas stop at nothing
In politics, it’s been shown how the DAP evangelistas will do anything in their greedy grab for power.
Yet J-Star CEO Wong Chun Wai writes in his column today, “Rhetoric by politicians and certain individuals, which smacks of racism and political bullying, are not going to help the economy. It can only worsen race relations in Malaysia and make investors think twice about us”.
Of course the state of our national economy is worrying but isn’t the EvangeliSTAR so sneaky to conflate it with his Porky whinging about “racism and political bullying”. Chun Wai says there are “the delegates who see threats and ghosts from fellow Malaysians when there are none”.
So the evangelistas are insisting we must close one eye to their aggressive agenda because this should not be our No.1 worry (instead we should be more worried about the economy). It’s just a very licik way to deflect the issues.
Ah-huh, the “threats and ghosts” are all a figment of Utusan‘s imagination only
Belog-belog politik yang cukup bangang
Both the economy and the evangelistas are national concerns.
But trust Chun Wai to gripe, “Reading political blogs and getting into a frenzy over race issues in social media seem to be the preoccupation of many”.
He also scoffs, “It’s absurd to still talk about vernacular schools or sulk over the voting patterns of the Chinese voters in the last two general elections”.
Hannah says Utusan stoked racial tension
Hannah Yeoh tweeted (see above) in the aftermath on May 6: “What an irresponsible Prime Minister we have in @NajibRazak allowing Utusan to stoke racial tension post May 5″.
That’s right. Nobody is allowed to hold the Chinese accountable for their actions.
Just like how the J-Star – in the morning after (7 May 2014) – had been very eager to insist that it was a “Malaysian tsunami” and not a Chinese one.
Chun Wai says don’t blame the Chinese
The J-Star CEO in his May 8 editorial titled ‘GE13: Win them over, don’t blame them‘ said:
“There is no need for intimidating messages and reports, particularly those which smack of racism, whether via the social platform or traditional media” …
… never mind the “backlash from the more conservative Malay crowd, who feel a sense of betrayal” …
… and despite Chun Wai’s own admission that
“Yes, the fact is that 90% of the Chinese votes went to Pakatan, or more precisely the DAP. Foolish as it may seem, many of these voters believed they could change the Barisan government. They wanted to punish Umno … .”
Nope, it’s not racist when 90% of Chinese voters scream ABU! ABU! ABU!
Umno digesa untuk terus tidur
Needless to say, Chun Wai took Utusan to task for what he calls its “racial slant” and the “foolishness” of asking Apa lagi Cina mahu? in the “highly-charged political atmosphere” of May 2013.
He declared, “it goes against the grain of democracy when voters are blamed and threatened”.
Right again. Dapsters created the tsunami but when the Umno delegates conclude that the Chinese have rejected BN, the Malays are accused of “threatening” the meek and mild minority.
Today Chun Wai repeated his theme song that it is “absurd to still … sulk over the voting patterns of the Chinese voters in the last two general elections”.
Hullo! It is the Chinese voting pattern that has enabled DAP to control Penang and Jerusubang Sin City.
The Umno president might as well just recommend for Chun Wai to be given a Tan Sri
