MCA more DAP than DAP in Taman Medan church cross controversy
Has MCA ever shown even an iota of interest to try and understand why the cross is making Malays so uncomfortable?
Can the MCA comprehend in the slightest why the Malays are angry over the attempted robbery of kalimah Allah and the aggressive Christianization push?
If MCA is in effect really representing the Malay voters – you know, the people who pangkah dacing on their ballot paper – then shouldn’t MCA give some consideration to Muslim sentiments?
Do the wakil-wakil MCA bother to turun padang to talk to their Malay constituents as almost all of them are holding office in Malay-majority areas?
The answer to the questions above is apparently No- No- No- and- No.
Chauvinistic to the core
MCA’s responses are getting to be too predictable.
The Chinese party wants BN to take action against former Petaling Jaya Selatan Umno Wanita chief Munaliza Hamzah (photo below) for her role in the protest against a shoplot church in Taman Medan.
It also wants an immediate police investigation into the demo by about 50 Malays.
WHAT MCA LEADERS SAY (EXCERPTS)
Thuggish, brutish, extremist protesters
“We cannot allow 50 persons to take the law into their own hands by criminal intimidation, threats etc which is what this incident amounts to.”
“I called upon IGP to investigate this travesty immediately irrespective of whether the perpetrators are from Umno, PAS or PKR.”
“All thuggish, brutish actions or crude or rude statements against the spirit of BN policies and practices must be stopped immediately if BN wants to survive the next GE collectively and not only one party wins at the expense of others. Otherwise BN will soon disintegrate and extremism and not moderation will rule the day.”

Islamization pushing Malaysia into extremism
“We are gravely concerned that indiscriminate Islamization had gradually pushed the nation into extremism…”
“In the meantime, 50 Malay residents in Taman Medan protested in-front of a new church in Taman Medan, Petaling Jaya and forced the congregation to remove its cross which they said ‘would challenge Islam’.
“This is a worrying trend as religious intervention is increasingly felt, all the way down into people’s, including the non-Muslims’ daily lives.” – Marco Yap, MCA publicity bureau deputy chairman

Threats by protesters rude and uncivilized
“… the very actions and threat by the protesters are rude and unconstitutional and only exposes their lack of self-confidence towards their own faith.
“A person’s attachment and devotion to a particular religion start from the heart and soul and will be impossible to be influenced or shaken so easily just by way of looking into a sign.” – Ong Chong Swen, Wanita MCA vice chairman

J-Star tail wagging MCA dog
As we’re all aware, the MCA-owned media is a Nest of Evangelistas.
Now it looks like the Chinese party is also behaving like the EvangeliSTAR in its reactions to issues besetting the evangelical Christians vs fundamentalist Muslims of late.
The fact is MCA politicians have managed to become Yang Berhormats only due to the votes mainly from Umno Malays. Yet these Chinese YBs seem to have forgotten that they’re representing an electorate comprising mostly Malay, Indian dan lain-lain, insofar as actual electoral support goes.
And why is MCA attacking Umno leaders instead of fighting the DAP?
BELOW: The J-Star editors tweeted Hannah Yeoh’s appointment as Selangor Speaker a grand total of 10 times over a period of 24 hours on the newspaper’s official Twitter
The J-Star‘s Twitter account has 523,000 followers
Making 10 tweets in a single day means the Hannah star-turn news blurbed in the @staronline timeline reaches five million screen views (10 x 523,000). Why is the MCA-owned media promoting the DAP evangelistas tahap gila gaban?
MCA should just be sacked from the BN!
