Harbinger of Malay tsunami in GE14

May 22, 2015 at 5:30 pm 15 comments

You can assume the following trend – which I’m going demonstrate – as one lesson that the BN will be taught in GE14.

1. The silent majority are sorely deprived of a platform for our voice. More than 600 out of some one thousand people are saying, ‘No’, the Rohingya should not be allowed to stay in Malaysia.

That’s what the majority (60 percent) of my poll respondents feel.

.
And this feeling is not at all out of the norm.

Other opinion surveys among other people in other places of the world reveal the same reservations about boat people and illegal immigrants – see an Australian poll reported last year by The Sydney Morning Herald where 59 percent of Australians do not believe most boat arrivals are genuine refugees.

2. It is however the minority posturing – like those of Hannah ‘Self-Righteous’ Yeoh, Marina Mahathir, Azrul Mohd Khalib & Kekawan – that dominate the court of public opinion. Listening to the noises everywhere from those pastors and ‘preacher’ types, you might not realise that their views are not really all that popular. They’re just loud and oftentimes aggressive.

3. For the last six years, Putrajaya has been kowtowing to bullies. And the Najib administration has done next to nothing to recover the hijacked public space for us, even though it is our views that are aligned to the government’s.

Instead, Najib prefers to help along the views of his political opponents so that today the Dapster evangelistas are getting even more airplay and traction. The prime minister’s weak communication policies, strategies and wrong decision to hire expensive consultants and con-municators is creating a destructive backlash among BN supporters.

Ingat, diam-diam ubi berisi

Najib seldom hears our voices. But it does not bode him well to forget our unseen majority votes.

Real numbers have more clout than ‘I ♥ PM‘ placard carriers. The PMO might want to brush up their arithmetic and counting skill.

    The “silent majority” are not “moderates”?

    They don’t buy into quaint notions like ” self reliance” and “meritocracy”?

    They think that “capitalism” and “free markets” are a load of crap?

    They think that they can wall themselves off in splendid isolation without the need to grow, export and compete?

    They think that there will always be someone around to pull them out of the fire when outsiders get angsty and uppity?

    It seems that “they” (aka the “silent majority) are in for a rude awakening before 2020.

    Let’s see how far the “silent majority” will go in tradeoffs to protect their children and children’s children.

    Also, much as it is unpalatable to people like Helen, “tsunamis” don’t feed your families or educate your children or magically produce good jobs and reliable infrastructure.

    Let’s see which prevails in the next GE – “pragmatism” or “tsunami”.

    It would be galling to be on the wrong side of history. Right, Helen?

    I’m not surprised this poll results never published in mainstream English newspapers like The Star, The Sun, News Strait Times, etc. Instead they sounded like 99.9% of Malaysian population say “yes” in this issue. In my opinion Myanmar government is trolling us Malaysians. If we either welcomes the Rohingyas then or send them elsewhere, we’re just playing their game.

      re: “mainstream English newspapers like The Star, The Sun, News Strait Times, etc. Instead they sounded like 99.9% of Malaysian population say “yes” in this issue”

      Don’t forget the online English media like TMI, FMT, etc.

      The English media in Malaysia is controlled by Christians. They do not mind supporting the Rohingya because back in Burma, the Rohingya are not fighting Christians but are fighting Buddhists.

      The line of coverage gives the evangelistas a chance to label Buddhists as “terrorists” and “extremists” too. Only the Christians are “moderates”. Muslims and Buddhists are portrayed as racists and bigots due to ISIS and the Myanmar monks.

      Najib has allowed the evangelistas to dominate English media and social media. So with their people dominating the newsrooms, this kind of agenda setting and its corollary – lopsided bias and censorship – should only be expected.

        Very true. That’s why you have the MalayMail giving wide coverage to the Mufti of Perlis who admonished the malays for not helping the Rohingyas.

        And here’s the coverage by TMI on LGE’s position on this issue –

          The ‘Malay’ in the newspaper name is a misnomer / false representation. Full of Christians.

            Would it be the days , Malay in the country name “Malaysia ” would become misnomer too ?.

            Something to ponder with.

        “They do not mind supporting the Rohingya because back in Burma, the Rohingya are not fighting Christians but are fighting Buddhists.

        Nothing to do with the fact that Christ has called his followers to love and help the poor and needy? Oh well, let’s leave it to the expert, Helen Ang.

        Wonder what the hidden motive of Catholic Philippines is for taking in these Muslim asylum seekers?

          Firasat ‘the expert Helen Ang’ merasakan mereka sengaja mahu mengadu domba beserta melaga-lagakan orang Islam dengan penganut Buddha di negara kita yang memangpun tidak ada kena-mengena dengan gerakan nasionalis Buddhist di Burma.

            Menangguk di air keruh? While at the same time putting the government and the majority of Malaysians in a bad light?

            The level of sophistication in their efforts is quite something. And arrayed against them (DAP+evangelists+fake liberals) are only an increasingly clueless UMNO and an increasingly bought-over and clueless PAS.

            I think even the word insidious does not do justice to describe these people.

    A question needs to be addressed, how many ppl from burma are here. There already exist Burmese registered with UN. Thousands of them have been registered for years. UN should provide the statistics as to how many been relocated so far.

    Now we have part 2 the rohingayas another export from Burma.
    And to say that they will be relocated in 1 year…… Thats Bullshit !

    There is also a part 3, the bangladeshie who use this situation to get here and also maybe be impersonating a rohingya

    All in all we have been taken for a ride.

    We look like a dumping ground

    [deleted] Yeah I agree the (far-left, chauvinistic, Islamophobic, Malay-hating, Zionist) Christians had taken over our mainstream English media.

    Only Malay ones like Utusan Malaysia, Berita Harian and Sinar Harian left and they sounded like like most of us “no” to this issue. We already have too many illegal immigrants in our country to begin with and letting the Rohingyas to stay even for a while only adding that number.
