When Tun becomes Kit Siang’s new BFF

July 10, 2015 at 9:18 am 72 comments

Happy 90th birthday to the Grand Olde Man of Malaysian politics and when all is said and done, I hope that Tun will not have a deep, lingering regret on the outcome that he is manoeuvring.

    Ms H. I am a born optimist. When the dust finally settles and a return to NORMALCY, we will see a New Era with our beloved Malaysia shooting up to the stars like a real rocket to the ranks of Switzerland and Japan unlike like the limpid rocket which hung on a piece of cloth from 1966 at the behest of the Dictator (1959-2015) and did absolutely NOTHING in the interest of the Rakyat and National Development.

      Uncle,

      The new era will be New Politics under the new evangelical DAP.

      They’re succeeding in making the public disgusted and despair at the BN.

        nizam. Pray tell me what the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP did since 1966 ? Do you know just by being in the Opposition as elected Federal and State MPs and salaries from the DAP since 1966, the DAP leaders are all multi-millionaires. If you were elected since 1966 to 2015, you would have collected RM 2.5 millions. That is why all political leaders encourage their children to be politicians. Just talk only. If it is white, say black. So simple.
        And you nizam, what are you, a DAP politician ?

          Uncle, not all the DAP Parliamentarians have/had held office for a stretch of close to 50 years (1966-2015) lah. Only Kit Siang.

          Some are indeed multi term MPs like Tan Kok Wai (1995, 1999, 2004, 2008, 2013) who has logged 20 years while others were only single term such as Dr Kua Kia Soong (1990).

          The short serving ones did not collect millions – you said “the DAP leaders are all multi-millionaires” – from their salaries because prior to 2008, DAP did not rule or co-rule any state. But of course today is a different story where you had Madame Speaker of Selangor agreeing for the legislature to pay herself a salary equivalent to the PM’s.

          If you were to modify your statement, Uncle, and say that some DAP evangelista politicians today have become a millionaire in a very short span of time (like David Nga Kor Ming, MP Taiping), then it would be true. Other DAP politicians have grown in physical size to match their big jobs – like Madame Speaker.

            Apparently for those Malaysians and ex Malaysians who have nothing good to say about Malaysia, living in a pressure cooker like Singapore is not a big issue.

            Singapore is not a first world country. Not too long ago 李敖 a Taiwanese writer and social commentator referred to Singapore and Singaporeans as ‘stupid’.

            You know why he called Singapore and Singaporeans stupid ?

              Yes, they use “daft” to describe that sort of subdued herd mentality back in Singapore. With all their great wealth and little population their compulsory CPF retirement funds have never come close to Malaysia’s EPF dividend rate of 6.35%. There has never been any public accountability in regards to those funds right from the beginning – talk about third-world opacity. The latest tweak is you have to be 65 years old to start receiving pension-like monthly payouts from your own CPF savings.

    Why? What have you got against Lim Kit Siang?

    If he had been suspected of any financial chicanery, he would have been “nailed” long ago.

    Ditto if he had been suspected of disloyalty to the country, sedition or treason.

    And why should Tun Dr Mahathir have any “deep lingering regret on the outcome that he is manoeuvring”?

    Read Anita Gabriel’s commentary “Najib owes it to Malaysians to disclose unequivocal truth about 1MDB” – http://www.business times.com.sg

    I will leave it to you decide if what she has written is “fair comment”.

      If you’re a BN voter (obviously you’re not, but other readers of my blog are), then you have to stop and think WASSUP? when Tun’s long-time arch enemy LKS suddenly becomes his chief cheerleader.

      LKS must approve of what Tun is doing, and what Tun is doing must be most beneficial – inadvertently and as an unintended consequence – to the DAP.

      re: “And why should Tun Dr Mahathir have any ‘deep lingering regret on the outcome that he is manoeuvring’?”

      If Umno-BN loses Putrajaya, he’d have played a great role in the downfall just like when Tun Dol suffered massive losses in GE12, Tun similarly played a large part.

      As for Ms Gabriel’s story, why did you link me to ‘donuts’?

        Helen,

        Some of Tun’s comments are valid.

        But Tun , in his eagerness to replace Najib, is doing DAP a big favour.

        Tun must understand that he too will end up as a casualty if UMNO goes down. Tun met Sirul’s mother, effectivelly implying that Sirul as a mere “kambing hitam”.

        Tun tried to replace najib. But UMNO seems not happy with his move.

          Because this attempt to forcibly remove the Prez is sending the whole edifice toppling. Now the integrity of the entire system (institutions and their heads like Bank Negara Governor, IGP, AG, MACC chief) is under attack.

          Remember Big Cat’s article where she felt that they are trying to dismantle the Malay pillars – like Mara, etc.

            If “the integrity of the system is under attack” ( by whom, exactly), surely it is incumbent upon the “system” to show that it it is open, accountable and transparent?

            If there is “nothing to hide”, there is no need to go into “panic mode” because the truth will out – eventually.

            As for “dismantling the Malay pillars”, I hope that you aren’t implying that there is no need for these “pillars” to remain open, accountable and transparent and to reinvent themselves to remain relevant amidst a rapidly changing internal and external environment?

            Or that maintaining the “status quo” and “business as usual” approach is good enough?

              I won’t repeat here some of the allegations being made in the social media about Zeti because they’re slanderous but this is one example of what I mean. Just because they want to get Najib on 1MDB doesn’t mean that the Governor of Bank Negara should suddenly be smeared when all the while before this, she’s been held in high esteem.

              Similarly the Auditor-General and those quarters casting doubts on his pending report. Year after year, we’ve heaped praises on the AG’s Dept for their oversight on government expenditure and pointing out the wastages and leakages.

              But over this 1MDB issue – just because they’re over-eager to nail Najib – they’re pre-empting the AG and prematurely anticipating that he will let Najib off the hook. This is unfairly questioning the integrity of the AG when his track record gives us no reason to do so.

                Helen,

                I believe that those from PR opposing Najib will not be satisfied even if Najib resigns. If Najib chooses to do so, he will be accused of resigning because he is guilty.

                If he does not resign, he is accused too. DAP and PR and those who are paranoid will say Najib is crazy about hanging to power.

                PR will only be satisfy if they could crucify Najib or MORE IMPORTANTLY , UMNO.

                As for Tun, though I hold him in high esteem, I believe he too should tone down. I hope Tun realises that he is actually tearing UMNO apart.

                Criticism is OK. it is healthy. But Tun seems to reject explanations after explanations by 1MDB. No doubt 1MDB is far, from satisfactory satisfactory. But certainly it has not lost RM42 billion. It has billion ringgit of assets to offset its liability.

                I can not help but notice that Tun seems want his prediction that UMNO will lose next election to be true. Then he will say ” I told you so”.

                As for Rafizi who seems very happy to accus e Tabung Haji, MARA, he too is useless. I see nothing wrong with MARA purchasing property in Australia or Tabung Haji property buying much prized land in the heart of Kuala LUmpur.

                As for malays , if they chooses to be over grateful to DAP just because some DAP MPs distribute kurma to them, then good luck.

                My advice to them if they prefer to listen to fitnah and worse still add some juicy stuff to make the fitnah more appealing, then be prepared to really being treated like “anjing kurap” when DAP take over.

                And after being treated like anjing kurap, be prepared for hell fire for participating in slandering.

                  He’ll pick on another sore, and then another. That’s why his criticisms shifted from Riza (the stepson), to Rosmah and to Nooryana’s wedding.

                  If BN loses GE14, then Tun’s other prediction will also come true, i.e. that BN will not be able to recover. Look at how Pakatan strengthened their grip and expanded their power in Selangor after just one electoral term.

                  1) from day one, the genesis of 1mdb is wrong. Its formation was not discuss in cabinet but when the shit hits the fan, bn has to bear the bad press. Now pkr want the pru13 result nuliified bcoz ajib used 1mdb fund to finance bn foray in pru13.

                  2) 1mdb 52 bil assets does not produce monthly cashflow to pay up the 42bil monthly instalment. Its interest sum alone is abt 4 juta a day. Rakyat oredi suffered as MoF has given 900 juta standby credit to 1mdb early this year, as a result ministries budget for 2015, eg MoHealth, was cut.

                    “Tun rela korbankan Umno dan PRU14, bukan, asal beliau boleh kenakan Najib?” …
                    Ada berpendapat sedemikian … lebih2 lagi apabila tatkala ini, anasir2 dari luar negara juga turut menyumbang dalam serangan ke atas PM; dikatakan/seolah2 kelihatan didalangi oleh Tun M sendiri.

                    1. Namun dalam siri2 serangan yang lebih awal:
                    a. Tun SUDAH mengatakan bahawa Najib mesti diturunkan ketika ini(sebelum PRU14) supaya UMNO dan Kerajaan BN dapat diperkasakan bagi menempuh(mengharungi serta memenangi) PRU14.
                    b. Kiranya undian PRU14 menjadi penentuan(kepada siapa yg akan berkuasa seterusnya), kemungkinan besar Najib + Umno + BN akan tersungkur.
                    Jadi … Tun M amat sedar apa yang dilakukanyya serta berharap bahawa rakyat yang lain memahami (serta menyokong) apa yang dilakukannya.

                    2. But to say “… asal beliau boleh kenakan Najib?” :
                    a. Seolah2 Tun M sudah kemaruk dan ‘overwhelmed with vengeance’? I don’t think so.
                    b. I still believe ‘common sense’ prevail in the Old Man; he did things for reasons known to him and those reasons cum objectives can only be accomplished with some form of current government remaining intact(not burned to ashes) and definitely NOT from the opposite coalition(forming the government).

                    3. “Tun rela korbankan Umno dan PRU14” …
                    a. I have to agree that Umno will not survive PRU14 if things remain as they are …
                    b. But whether Tun atau Najib yang korbankan Umno ATAU Umno itu sendiri yang mengorbankan dirinya … those matters are still open for debate.

                      1. We’re all worried that BN will lose GE14. But like I’ve said before, would BN have performed better in the last election if Muhyiddin, Zahid or Hisham had been in charge?

                      The answer is ‘No’, and the Chinese tsunami would have still hit with full force. Nothing can abate the Chinese bloodlust. That’s why Saifuddin Abdullah – whom both the Chinese and the Firsters adore – still lost in Temerloh.

                      2. Will BN perform better in the next election if Muhyiddin, Zahid or Hisham are put in charge? The answer remains ‘No’.

                      A lot hinges on unity with PAS. In this current crisis that’s putting Najib under pressure, PAS is seen to be supportive of him. This is a very promising development.

                      Muhyiddin, Zahid and Hisham do not have the tact and diplomacy to swing unity with PAS. Recall how Muhyiddin was insensitive about TG Azizan’s passing away from diabetes, and his sombong statement about the fishermen/fishmonger in Manek Urai?

                      Zahid is not a negotiator or mediator. Najib is, e.g. the 10-point solution for the Christians.

                      3. Let’s take the claim that Najib is causing Umno to have a negative image. We can see how the oppo and their media and their NGO network like Bersih are all out to get him. If Muhyiddin was No.1, they’d be all out to discredit him too, and dig up his record as Johor MB.

                      If Zahid was No.1, they’d dig into his Paul Phua FBI letter. They can demonize anybody, even Mother Teresa, once they set the machinery into motion.

                      If there are no issues, they will create issues. For the purpose of bringing down Najib, they’re currently willing to smear Zeti and Amrin Buang and the AG’s Chamber. So the crux of the matter is the opposition’s methods. They will apply these same methods against whoever occupies the No.1 chair.

                      4. I do believe that Tun indeed wants to save Umno, BN and our country. And he believes his way is the best way to achieve the objective.

                      But he makes mistakes. Anwar was a big mistake. Appointing Sleepy Dollah was another mistake. Allowing KJ into the Fourth Floor and given a free rein was yet another.

                      Tun also appointed DPMs that never made the cut to premiership – Tun Ghafar and Musa Hitam.

                      A leader like Lee Kuan Yee secured his successor. All of Tun’s successors have fallen by the wayside or he’s the one pushing them off the road. Tun has made severe misjudgments in the past. And he’s continuing to do so.

                      It’s not just Najib alone that is being attacked. Even the Auditor-General’s office is coming under attack. The special taskforce comprises the four Tan Sris. They’re all under attack. Which goes to show that the oppo will attack no matter what and regardless of whom.

                      A parallel example is their attack on Isma’s Alifah Ting Abdullah who was truly an innocent victim. The attackers are people who are simply unhinged. You put a saint as the next Umno president, they will paint him as the devil.

                      We need a war general. The best is Tun. But unfortunately, he’s not taking the war to the DAP and neither will he be PM in 2018.

                      The next best thing is Najib. If only he can be a war general. Here’s my hunch. Still waters run deep. I believe he has got reserves he can dig into. If he survives this 1MDB onslaught, then he’s made of sterner stuff than any one of us ever suspected.

                    People are very well informed nowadays. Will not simply believe whatever things that whichever politicians may say.

                    The fact remains that as long as Najib remains as a sitting PM during the course of investigation, he is empowered to ‘interfere’ in the outcome of the investigation simply because the appointments of the respective heads of the police, MACC, BNM and AG are under the authority of the PM.

                    The best solution is for Najib to temporarily excuse himself and allow Muhyiddin to take over as acting PM pending the completion of investigation.

                    Can we expect the respective chiefs to act independently if their boss (i.e. PM Najib) is still in authority?

                    One recent example of such arrangement is the cross protest at Taman Medan church. Deputy IGP took charge as the lead protester is the brother of IGP.

                      Why in the course of rebutting my points you still want to take the chance to belittle and undermine HY? She will not take notice or offence by your blog postings and replies anyway. Why the obsession with HY but not other politicians?

                      Anyway, my main point is Najib should be ‘excused temporarily’ pending the outcome of the taskforce investigation. Would you agree?

                      Wrong. Her Royal Roundness and the Hannah Personal Assistants monitor my blog obsessively while her demented fan base are cyberstalking me.

                      And aside from direct mentions by name – see her tweets on ‘Helen’ below, she also responds but perhaps in ways too subtle for a mentally blocked (meaning extremely presumptuous) individual like you to notice.

                      For instance, when I recently said that she is such a shorty, selang kejab dia muat sekeping gambar taken with a very rare person who’s actually shorter than her – see below. Or when I point out her double chin, she uploads that rare photo taken at a flattering angle where her flabby chin is minimized.

                      She has responded many times, and sometimes to gloat – see, you can blog as many complaints as you like (e.g. when I observed that she was over-featured by Selangor Times) but to no avail because I’m still the media/mosque darling.

                      Do you know why she obsesses over media/social media coverage of herself?

                      B’cos she’s such a gila glamer publicity hound, that’s why.

                      Narcissism comes with the territory. And politicians who ride on their celebrity but fake image, like Hannah, are always very obsessive over what people say about them because they’re measured by popularity, not policy or principle.

                      re: “Why the obsession with HY but not other politicians?”

                      Which other politician has got a mosque portfolio (photo gallery)?

                      Even the Wanita Umno politicians don’t exploit the mosque, and nor did any VVIP wives like Siti Hasmah or Rosmah.

                      There’s no other politician in Malaysian as despicable as Hannah Yeoh with the exception of her mentors – Grandpapa and Papa Dapster. Ong Kian Ming comes close though.

                      Aiyah. Don’t need me to do that. She’s already “little” – in stature and in intellectual capacity.

                      Aside from the super short man pictured with her above at the pasar Ramadan, there’s hardly anyone yang lebih pendek dari Hannah Yeoh.

                      You can see how really short she is compared to Dyana Samad and Young Syefura, and how even in her clunky platform heels, she’s still such a pygmy standing alongside everybody else, https://helenang.wordpress.com/2015/04/28/kasut/

                      As for “undermining” her, save your concern for a better cause as she’s the most bouyed politician in the country – both by the fawning media and her >100k gushing fan club.

                      Her inflated ego is the same size as her girth, so it’ll take a lot more than just a blog to make a dent on it.

                    It so happens that Tun M punya howitzer is of 155mm calibre. Jika Tun tidak menggunakannya, lebih banyak lagi howitzer2 dari kaliber 105mm(mungkin lebih kecil, tetapi) akan menyerang Najib dari berbagai arah. So one way or the other … he(Najib) has got things coming his way.

        “donuts”? I fail to see the connection unless you are referring to the delectable confections from Krispy Kreme….lol.

        I thought that Ms Gabriel’s commentary is logical, well written (in good English – what a refreshing change!) and “well balanced”.

        Have you read her commentary in full anyway?

        Back to your other point – an Umno-led BN coalition has no divine “mandate” or “right” to remain in power. It has to remain accountable to the rakyat (electorate) and to play the same tired old cards of “bahasa, bangsa dan ugama”.

        It’s kind of like the Brits tossing Labour out and giving the Conservatives an absolute majority in their own right. Even if the Conservatives are committed to cutting welfare benefits, reducing corporate taxes and reforming the education system, while bringing the budget back into balance.

            It is an interesting analogy you have raised with regard to Thailand. Are you seeing the same rural-urban divide that permeates Thai politics?

            As Malaysians, especially the young become better educated and as they become aware of opportunities in the region, are they going to be content with the status quo BN?

            It is interesting that you don’t seem to buy into the idea that the BN has to earn the right to be voted into power, and that it is the best alternative, all things considered, for Malaysians.

            And if there are robust debates about that, why not?

              I do believe that BN needs to be kept in power.

              If BN loses power, then it is the DAP – currently the second biggest party in Parliament – that will take over Putrajaya (power behind the throne like Nizar’s Perak). We can’t allow this to happen because they are dajjal.

                That’s an “Islamic spin” you are putting on things, aren’t you?

                By the same token, would you characterise the US as “dajjal”? Or any other secular state, for that matter?

                There are certain quarters in the US and the West that have similar derogatory views about Muslims and Islam? Are they justified in their views?

                It seems to me that you are trotting out the “bahasa, bangsa and ugama” ploy again.

                So, why would you take umbrage if those you characterise as “dajjal” push back? Using all the means available to them.

                      Too clever by half. And in your rush to score points, you have put your foot squarely in your mouth.

                      Why use the word “dajjal” in the first place? Is your English vocabulary so limited that you couldn’t come up with an appropriate English word for whatever you wanted to put across?

                      Nope – the word “dajjal” was used deliberately and cynically; the writer was well aware of it’s Arabic origin and it’s Islamic connotations. Note that she has been waxing wroth about “evangelistas” – which is an overt attack on Evangelical Christians. She has already employed the religious context in her posts in her blog.

                      So, are we to believe that her use of the word “dajjal” was innocent and purely rhetorical with no implied religious connotations?

                      If you believe that, then I have a slightly used bank account that I’d like to sell to you for a very nominal sum, no questions asked.

                  Dajjal in Malay also literally means big liar. It is used connotative to the actual meaning of dajjal, which is the false messiah (i.e. false savior). He is also known as the deceiver as his main role is to deceive people into believing into something which is the opposite. Off course to deceive is by lying or make oneself appear as the opposite in order to deceive.

                  So, there are 2 dajjal. One is the actual dajjal as mentioned in the hadith. The other is the connotative meaning for anything that resemble the characteristics of dajjal. Just when when we say jahat macam syaitan, we do not mean he is a syaitan, but resemblance of the evil of syaitan.

              if dap does so have the right to be voted into power, why do I still see Michael Chong of MCA have to deal with ah long, fraud cases, triads, gambling issues, and all sorts of social cases that have connection with Chinese community?

              does promoting hate, divisive speech, pointing fingers, unravelling scandals and make political stunt = right to vote? if that is what majority of Malaysians including you believe, I really pity you guys and pray for Malaysia.

        I think we’re all annoyed by Najib in some way or another and the list is long – mine: Pemandu, TalentCorp, Saifuddin’s Moderates, NUCC, not implementing the Hindraf-BN MoU and other irritants. Oh yeah, his purchase of a whole chicken for RM1.

        And our natural urge is to hit out. It takes a whole lot of self-restraint not to.

        But realistically – talking realpolitik here – the PM’s position is inherently very strong. In fact, Najib has only used a fraction of the many powers at his disposal.

        Before the WSJ story, it looked like he had things under control for so long as the Umno supreme council and division chiefs are behind him. The logical calculation was that Tun would not be able to dislodge him.

        But then this current “nuclear option” is unleashed. It doesn’t hurt just Najib alone. It’s hurting the party. Even some who’s usually above the fray like Anifah Aman pun kena bambu dengan Tun. Banyak collateral damage.

        Tun can’t execute a surgical strike. It’s a very messy carpet bombing.

            Unlike Madame Speaker (and her DAP, PKR ‘New Politics’ colleagues) who blocks scores of Twitter users from her @hannahyeoh timeline, https://helenang.wordpress.com is democratic. And unlike them, I’m not so tyrannical as to be unable to allow the airing of opposing views.

            So if you choose to consider the list above as your Dream Team line-up, go right ahead. Whatever floats your boat.

            Again like I’ve said, if you want to consider the Dapster family mafia as Malaysia’s best and brightest, then by all means. You’ve bought your ticket, you sail with their ship.

            re: “Does Umno have a monopoly on the ‘best and brightest’?”

            Umno has a monopoly on the paling tidak apa, and in our circumstances, this is a big blessing in disguise for the minorities and for our country.

            Because Umno is so rileks jer, they’ve never gone to the ultra kiasu lengths taken by the DAP which is very vicious – their trademark is the streetfighter Ah Long-style.

            And because Umno is by nature selamba (ale, biarkan aje), they’re not reacting when Islam is being provoked. Kalau Umno jenis yang ambil kisah, dah lama dah si pelampau evangelis DAP hok dikerjakan.

            re: “I don’t think so, not with ‘rent seekers’, warlords and people who play the race and religion cards when their backs are to the wall.”

            There’s no denying the race and religion cards but these are a reality of life.

            In Europe for example, Islamophobia is on the rise, especially after the Charlie Hebdo shootings. Even in the USA, race matters. Recently Donald Trump, who is a Republican presidential aspirant, was boycotted by the American Hispanic community following his comments on Mexican immigrants.

            In Malaysia, the evangelistas are freaking out Muslims.

            re: “Get off your high horse, Helen. Malaysians have more brains than to accept your racist- and religious-tinged bigoted meanderings.”

            Tsk, tsk, tsk. Haters gonna hate.

            Can’t you show a little more originality than to parrot the Firsters who characteristically “spew” allegations of racism and bigotry? How about throwing in – “Helen, you’re an extremist!” – to complete the trinity?

              DAP 2.0 ada offer constructive policies, meh? Let’s see. What are their actions? YB Teresa Kok complained that JPJ was imposing a mosque dress code in requiring a woman’s hemline to reach below her knees.

              YB Hannah Yeoh took her entourage of tudung wearers to the mosque for photo ops – see pix below.

              YB Ong Kian Ming tweeted a whole month about what he ate for #sahur and iftar even though he is an evangelical Christian who cannot fulfil puasa as an ibadah to Allah. (The act of merely refraining from food – but still drinking water! – does not meet one of the five pillars of Islam because the evangelista poseurs are not Muslims carrying out the fast as a religious obligation.)

              And then YB Ong uploads a photo of himself helping a group of Malays to stir an empty pot in the surau.

              Yah, so impressed!

              The DAP does nothing but oppose. When PAS failed to slam Najib, Lim Kit Siang accused the party of appearing “to break from the opposition convention” – see screenshot below of https://www.malaysiakini.com/news/304535

              Which means that “the opposition convention” is to always oppose, oppose, oppose no matter the right or wrong of the matter.

              re: “Over here, imagery Islamophobia (they can attack the other religions as much as they want mind you) and racist sentiments rule.”

              If the Islamophobia was imaginary, Alvin Tan would not have absconded to the US after being charged for sedition. Eric Paulsen is being charged for sedition too over his tweet on Jakim. Likewise CinaTM @ YouTiup has been investigated by police. They’re perpetually poking at Islam.

              And can you show where in my blog “they can attack the other religions as much as they want” as you are alleging?

              re: “Even if the opposition could drastically improve the country on the issues that you raised, most on here will still opt for the status quo, it’s part of their tribal mentality.”

              The oppo is destroying the country. That’s what they’ve always been doing. It’s their “convention” to tear down – be it the ruling party, BN politicians or state institutions.

              re: “It’s ironic that the so called secular countries that don’t proclaim and shove their beliefs down you throats 24/7 are often the least racist and appear to have the strongest morals.”

              Lim Guan Eng gave Penang – which never had a Sultan – the Islamic motto of “Amar makruf nahi mungkar”, and plastered his face (placed most prominently in the middle some more) all over Penang in banners celebrating Muslim festivals – see below.

              The other DAP evangelistas have been carrying out a concerted campaign to Occupy Masjid. Never before had any Wanita MCA, Wanita MIC or Wanita Gerakan leaders exploited the mosque in any gila publisiti gimmicks.

              Under the previous MCA and Gerakan state governments, Penang did not de-secularize like what Guan Eng is carrying out to the point that a PAS khatib prayed on Friday during sembahyang jemaah for his Chief Minister’s conversion to Islam.

              What “secular” are you talking about? MCA and Gerakan are secular. DAP is evangelical but are wolf in sheep’s clothing in conducting their sneaky mosque infiltration.

              re: “don’t proclaim and shove their beliefs down you throats 24/7 are often the least racist”

              Like how Hannah Yeoh shoved her tudung-wearing – kononnya she’s showing “respect” to Islam by wearing tudung whereas other non-Muslims who don’t favour such cheap tricks are not respecting Islam – down the Chinese community’s throat.

              She even had the gall to accuse the Sin Chew columnist who disapproved of her deceit and duplicity as being an extremist holding “extremist views”.

                “If the Islamophobia was imaginary, Alvin Tan would not have absconded to the US after being charged for sedition. Eric Paulsen is being charged for sedition too over his tweet on Jakim. Likewise CinaTM @ YouTiup has been investigated by police. They’re perpetually poking at Islam.”

                Sometimes I wonder if you are just taking the piss, cos there is no doubting that you are a very intelligent person.You take three isolated incidents and pretend that it represents the whole country, that’s just dangerous and frankly not true.

                Alvin is anti organised religion period, and has said many insulting things about Christianity as well. He comes from an atheistic viewpoint, and generally views theists as a bunch of idiots. He’s against any form of authority and is an ultra liberal at heart, so obviously he’s going to make disparaging remarks about a conservative regime.

                Believe it or not, he’s more critical of Singaporeans than he is of Malaysians. I think he just can’t stand programmed robots and is loving being in a country where people have the ability to rationalise and are encouraged to think for themselves. How liberating it must be for him!

                Eric as far as I am concerned attacked an Islamic organisation, not Islam itself. If the majority of Malay Muslims are too ignorant not to recognise that, then it’s obviously their problem and not his.

                What Eric said is actually not too different to your daily attacks on Evangelicals, is it now? If Eric is being investigated for sedition, then surely you should be as well.

                YouTiup is an idiot and he may very well be against Islam, but for every YouTiup that’s out there, I raise you an Ibrahim Ali, Zahid Hamidi and a selection of other right wing Malay NGO’s out there.

                  It is not only these three incidents and they are not isolated. There are more, but not so high profile like Alvin who naturally comes first to mind.

                  Recently a Chinese mechanic was sentenced to there months’ jail for throwing pork into a mosque. Then there was Chow Jack (Chinese guy) who was sentenced to one year’s for saying some really nasty things about Ramadhan and Islam.

                  And there are other Christians whom the Malay blogs complain about but whose names are not on your radar because obviously you don’t read Malay blogosphere.

                  Since you’ve written so much about Alvin, then you must have read his Facebook timeline. Now don’t pretend that Alvin doesn’t have lots of supporters cheering him on when he attacks Islam.

                  So your argument that these are ONLY three isolated incidents as if it is these three Malaysian individuals only have ever said caustic things about Islam and Muslims is most disingenuous.

                  It is your bare-faced denial in the face of facts that is “dangerous”. But you’re just like the evangelistas who prefer point finger first at others. You’re clearly the one who is peddling untruths.

                Helen is trying to emulate the late Ronald Reagan by donning a Teflon coating, so much so that no matter what you throw at her, it doesn’t stick, but slides off.

                A very convenient asset, shall we say, for a blogger whose blogs thrive on race, religion and criticisms about her fave bête noires.

                Which is ok, because it’s about “freedom of speech”. But she should be prepared for trenchant and robust criticism and rebuttals.

                It should also be noted that in all her posts, Helen has never put forward her ideas how to make Malaysia more competitive, how to restructure the economy away from an over-reliance on commodities and how to prepare for the new games in town – such as the AEC, the TPP, the AIIB and the New Silk Road.

                I suspect that is because she hasn’t got a clue about how to address these issues and put forward constructive and sensible suggestions.

                Restructuring the economy? Nah. Increasing competitiveness? Too difficult. Managing talent? Boring. Addressing weaknesses in the education system? No points there, lah.

                It’s far easier to play the demagogue and whip up all manner of sentiments about, I repeat, her fave bête noires.

                  You’re one of the mud throwers. You’re still hoping that if you throw enough, some of it might stick … hopefully.

                  re: “A very convenient asset, shall we say, for a blogger whose blogs thrive on race, religion and criticisms about her fave bête noires.”

                  My Teflon coating is a very convenient asset? Well, if the tons of mud that you guttersnipes are throwing ain’t sticking, then it'[s obvious I’m on the right side of Truth.

                  re: “Which is ok, because it’s about ‘freedom of speech’. But she should be prepared for trenchant and robust criticism and rebuttals.”

                  Freedom of speech is fully practicised here. Even my detractors and critics have been forward in admitting that they’ve never been censored unlike @hannahyeoh who blocked scores of Twitter users from her timeline, see https://helenang.wordpress.com/2015/02/23/dodgy-podgy-porky-and-pie-syahredzan/

                  How about you go to Hannah Yeoh’s Twitter and wish her Good Morning</strong" or recommend Madame the best eating place where she can satiate her never ending food cravings or to indulge your desire to read about the AEC, the TPP, the AIIB and the New Silk Road.

                  null

                  Like I’ve said many times before, I run my blog as an independent individual, voluntarily and entirely on my own resources. I’m not paid a salary almost equivalent of our PM to be a talk-talk-talk politician pandering to the 40,000 ABU electorate who voted for me.

                  I’m not a politician getting my job and pay on account of your (the public) vote. If you’re worried about your laundry list of concerns, why don’t you approach your MP?

                  re: “I suspect that is because she hasn’t got a clue about how to address these issues and put forward constructive and sensible suggestions.”

                  I fully agree with you that Hannah Yeoh hasn’t got a clue about how to address these issues and put forward constructive and sensible suggestions. All Hannah Banana tweets about 24/7 are her food cravings. No wonder the roundness.

                  Ooooh, and they pay me a salary matching the Prime Minister’s. Is life good to be an evangelista politician or what … even if I have to put up with racist and distasteful Umno and MIC troops once in a blue moon.

                    Gotcha, Helen. Throw the criticisms away and divert the issue back to Hannah Y.

                    Talk about “single-minded focus”!

                    Let’s see if she gets re-elected in the next GE. Perhaps then you will be calling her constituents “misguided”, to put it politely.

                    I think LKY once said, if I remember his memoirs, that if you want to take him on, go join a political party, stand for election and convince the electorate, instead of sniping from the sidelines.

                    And that is precisely what you are doing….sniping from the sidelines.

                      re: “Gotcha, Helen. Throw the criticisms away and divert the issue back to Hannah Y.”

                      Dictionary definition of ‘criticism’ – “the expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes”, “the analysis and judgment of the merits and faults of a literary or artistic work”

                      I blog my ‘criticisms’ of HY. I make her tweets the subject of my critique. My criticisms are based on the actual content generated by her in the social media.

                      Kineas, on the other hand, has not produced any valid criticisms of me. He is sniping that I’ve not written anything about “AEC, the TPP, the AIIB and the New Silk Road” or “restructuring the economy”, “increasing competitiveness”, “managing talent”, “weaknesses in the education system”.

                      He is griping a whole laundry list of what I’ve not done (like you griping that I haven’t blogged about Syria and Greece) rather than pointing out any writing crimes or writing sins that I’ve actually committed. Duh …

                      re: “Talk about ‘single-minded focus’!”

                      Yeah :D … it’s a little quirk of mine.

                      re: “Let’s see if she gets re-elected in the next GE.”

                      She will get reelected in next GE, and the next and the next.

                      re: “Perhaps then you will be calling her constituents ‘misguided’, to put it politely.”

                      I’m willing to say even now that for Jerusubang denizens, there is no hope and no cure.

                      re: “you want to take him on, go join a political party, stand for election and convince the electorate, instead of sniping from the sidelines”

                      Going by your own logic, if you want to take me on, go start your own blog, write about ISIS in Syria and the EU prescription for Greece and try to attract a readership that surpasses mine, instead of sniping from my Comments section.

                      re: “And that is precisely what you are doing….sniping from the sidelines.”

                      And that’s precisely what you/kineas are doing when you gripe that I do not blog about “AEC, the TPP, the AIIB and the New Silk Road”, ISIS, Syria, Greece and your other obsessions.

                    Exactly right.

                    Why? Do you have any bright ideas to spare out of the abundance of your intellect?

                    Hahaha….

                    Or will it be the SOP of protection and more protection and let the rest of the world go hang?

                    It must be wonderful to be deluded in this day and age.

                    As I suspect Helen is, Teflon coating and all.

                    So, how about it, brudder? Any bright ideas on how to restructure the Malaysian economy and make it more competitive, efficient and productive?

                    Oh, I forgot – all those words – competitiveness, efficiency, productivity – are apparently alien concepts to you.

                    And, perhaps, to Helen too. You know, that bit about chucking mud around and hoping that it sticks?

                      In my opinion, Malaysian Chinese are overly competitive and also super duper efficient. Productive? Yeah, that as well. Too much of a good thing?

                      Which are the reasons why I fear the competitive, efficient, productive DAP will eat the Parti Paling Tidak Apa alive.

    Ms H. With the departure of the Dictator (1959-2015), let us all hope that the Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP becomes a real Malaysian Horse so that the deep suspicions on certain segments of the Malaysian Chinese are no more. Together the future is very bright indeed for all the Rakyat. It is pointless to hang onto a candle which does show the light for 50 years in politics – 2 lifetimes.

    I agree with the view that TDM wants BN to remain in power . This can only be achieved if DSN resigns as UMNO President and PM. DSN does not have the integrity and honor to lead UMNO and Malaysia because of 1MDB in particular. TDM’s love for the country is never in question.

    I also agree with the view that Malaysians will vote along racial lines. The Chinese tsunami is going to be a permanent voting feature in Malaysia.
