J-Star’s Low Yat conspiracy theory is spinning suspicion of Malay establishment

July 16, 2015 at 3:44 pm 28 comments

Cabinet must demand that the MCA president gives an accounting for the venomous behaviour of the Gunting media owned by his party.

In her column today, former J-Star acting group editor June Wong stuck her poison-tipped scissors into the back of the Low Yat anatomy.

In the two-faced guise of ‘Let’s stop the fear and suspicion‘ (her article headline), Wong injected even more fear and more suspicion among her non-Malay readers.

Wong introduced her conspiracy theory on the premise that “we cannot help but wonder why this violence occurred in the first place when it was just a case of cheating or theft”. She made her skepticism abundantly clear.

She then proceeded to ask, “is it normal behaviour for the thief’s accomplice to round up a big group of his friends to seek revenge on the shopkeepers who had helped nab the duo?”

Continuing with her suspicions, Wong wrote:

“One would think that after being questioned by the police and allowed off, he would be thanking his lucky stars he wasn’t locked up, and would quietly go home and fret over whether he should confess to his parents. Instead, he boldly returned with a mob to the mall and, in full view, attacked people and destroyed property.

“It is said he lied about being cheated by the phone salesman. Again, is it a normal reaction for people to coalesce into a group to seek revenge on behalf of friends this way?”

Wong is suggesting that the behaviour of the Malay youth is abnormal. The J-Star senior editor then asked, “What was said to incite these men to such rage to brazenly break the law?”

So what’s she driving at?

Wong then threw the RM64,000 question – “why did more people so easily and quickly believe it and again gather at Low Yat the next day to violently show their displeasure?”

In the line that June Wong is taking above, she sounds a whole lot like Hannah’s BFF Yee Siew Meng whose letter two days ago was headlined ‘We must not give in to fear‘. (Wong’s article headline today is ‘Let’s stop the fear and suspicion‘.)

The evangelical Christian Yee Siew Meng had penned the insinuation that “political monsters” had had  a hand in the Low Yat riot, that “certain quarters” instigated the violence and more particularly, that “a desperate political party” had incited young, disenfranchised Malay youths to riot.

June Wong’s veiled conspiracy theory is not too far from Yee’s. Except that Yee had made outright allegations and only stopping short of naming the political party being fingerpointed, Wong is more cautious. The experienced EvangeliSTAR writer chose to expound her ‘thesis’ in the form of a series of rhetorical questions.

Regardless, one would still have to be pretty thick not to be able to discern the subversive J-Star‘s political allegiance as well as the paper’s subtle act of sabotage. Rather than cooling temperatures, Wong has stirred up more uncertainties.

    The article in question is an opinion piece.

    June Wong’s opinion.

    Like it is your opinion DAP, Christianity and HY have a hidden hand in the LY violence.

    Quote June Wong ““It is said he lied about being cheated by the phone salesman. Again, is it a normal reaction for people to coalesce into a group to seek revenge on behalf of friends this way?”

    She does have a point. If it is a matter of revenge because someone cheated their friend, the group would have confronted the Lenovo salesperson.

    Instead, the group opted to thrash the Oppo vendor who was instrumental in apprehending their friend.

    The group seems more intent on punishing the Oppo person for not minding his own business than seeking payback for an alleged con job.

    Excuses conjured by some about the group out to seek redress because their friend is cheated just don’t jell.

    Unless of course the group targetted Oppo because they (group) are such awesome strategists in contemplating an exit plan. Oppo is afterall conveniently located on the ground floor.

    If that is the case, pre-emptive measures in place meant certain planning are involved. Not exactly some mindless fury out to exact payback for a fallen brother.

      Don’t be a sneaky bastard with your sly semantics.

      It is my opinion that the DAP’s politics of hate is one of the major causes of the current race and religion tensions between Muslims and Christians.

      Since the Chinese are staunch DAP supporters, this has caused them to be in the bad books of the Malay-Muslims – just like how Chinese traders in general have been targeted for boycott consequent to the May 5 tsunami election results.

      I never said that DAP, Christianity or HY had “a hidden hand” in what happened specifically in Low Yat. The fact that you can actually twist it to batu api like this is a crystal clear demonstration of what you evangelistas are capable of.

        No?

        On another thread you were insisting the 2 boys dragged out of their car and beaten by the mob were targetted precisely because they were Chinese. And on this blog you had constantly advocated how the Malays pantang cabar and view the Chinese collectively as 1DAP.

        Spooky now you chose to disavow DAP of any direct or indirect influence on the LY chaos.

        Or is sneaky a better word?

          Your English is better than you’re pretending. You’re just sneaky, that’s all.

          Another word for “hidden hand” is behind-the-scenes operator which describes the context of June Wong or Yee Siew Meng’s insinuations.

          Let’s take YSM who’s more direct than JW. According to YSM, “a desperate political party inciting young, disenfranchised Malay youths to riot”. So the unnamed desperate political party is – in YSM’s belief – the hidden hand behind the Low Yat riot, i.e. the mastermind that mobilized the numbers (hundreds) to gather.

          How in the world can the DAP, its Christian leaders or HY be said to be the “behind-the-scenes operator” that instigated the MALAY youths to riot against the Chinese Low Yat staff?

          Sample sentences (from Google):

          (1) “The Hidden Hand Behind The Islamic State Militants? Saddam Hussein’s.”

          Replace sample with DAP, “The hidden hand behind the Malay youths who rioted at Low Yat? DAP evangelical Christian leaders and HY” – Nope, doesn’t make sense at all

          (2) “The People’s Bank of China is turning to a hidden hand as it seeks to stimulate the world’s second-largest economy without worsening debt risks.”

          (a) Replace sample with ‘behind-the-scenes operator’, “Organizers of the rent-a-crowd turned to their behind-the-scenes operator for the task of mobilizing the participants who rioted at Low Yat” – ‘hidden hand’ in context as an extension of JW & YSM’s insinuations.

          (b) Replace sample sentence with DAP evangelical Christian leaders and HY, “Organizers of the rent-a-crowd turned to DAP evangelical Christian leaders and HY for the task of mobilizing the participants who rioted at Low Yat” – ‘hidden hand’ in context as an extension of JW & YSM’s insinuations.

          Again, sentence 2(b) implying that DAP is the hidden hand behind the Low Yat riots makes no sense at all. So why in the world would I imply that DAP or Christianity or HY are the hidden hand behind the event?

          You’re just a sneaky bastard whose twisting is right down there at gutter level.

          I would certainly attribute the DAP with playing a significant role in relation to the rise of anti-Chinese sentiments. And in my personal opinion, the Wira motorist and his two passengers were victims of anti-Chinese sentiment in the mob attack on Sunday night/Monday morning.

          However, don’t put words and phrases like “hidden hand” into my mouth because I certainly never said that DAP, Christianity or HY were the behind-the-scene-operators in making the violence in Low Yat happen that night.

          But anyway, thanks for pulling this semantic stunt, HH. I couldn’t have made it up myself to show and tell what kind of people the evangelistas are. You guys are really a piece of work. It’s good that other Malaysians are slowly being made to realise what it is we have in our midst.

            I know jolly well what YSM and JW are insinuating.

            Obviously I am not advocating your pet threesome (

            DAP, Christians and HY) to be the implied ‘hidden hand’ in their pieces.

            Your habitual application of 6 degree of separation rule linking the remotest of connection to your favorite 3 on the other hand makes you the better recipient of the word. As in you implying the 3 are indirectly responsible.

            Well, since the appropriateness of my using the ‘hidden hand’ word is in question, I will just simply rephrase my sentence.

            Aww, modesty is not becoming of you. Don’t sell yourself short. Your mission of hate and denigration of Christians, DAP and HY in what you call your ‘alpha’ blog surely needs none of my help.

            Sneaky of you to accord me recognition tho.

              So by rephrasing, you finally admit that ‘hidden hand’ is one wet thread (benang basah) that you’re unable to tegakkan.

              Not everyone will have the patience to go on a verbal toe-to-toe with you evangelistas when you all pull your sneaky bastard tricks.

              When the people bullied by evangelistas are unable to retaliate verbally against the wormtongues since you all invariably win the battle of words, they will lash out the only other way they know how.

                The “hidden hand”? Cue words for reforms and economic restructuring?

                After all, we all know that, push comes to shove, the US Government and the US Fed call the shots. And they are not going to let the Chinese Government and the PBOC stand in their way.

                The US hikes interest rates, the US Dollar goes up, the Ringgit tanks and foreign holders of Malaysian paper sell out. It’s a simple scenario that economists and analysts have explained many times.

                So, all the huffing and puffing about “race and religion” is about “feel good” emotions, because, in terms of the economy, we aren’t in control of our own destiny. We prosper or fail based on others’ policies.

                Thus all the “distractions” to divert attention away from the hard economic facts of life….

                Maybe the ISA should be brought back, because you can’t control the “hard economic facts of life”.

                No matter how much folks like Helen, Rina, islam1st dll may fondly believe otherwise.

                  We’re the only one in the world.

                  From the PM’s Hari Raya message today:

                  “Mutakhir ini, Malaysia dikenali sebagai sebuah negara Islam progresif dan menjadi contoh di kalangan negara membangun serta negara Islam yang lain. Tambah mengukuhkan kedudukan tersebut, kita telah melancarkan Indeks Syariah Malaysia pada 10 Februari 2015.

                  “Indeks ini, merupakan produk pelengkap tadbir urus Islam di Malaysia, yang belum pernah dilaksanakan oleh mana-mana negara. Ia menjadi satu kaedah pengukuran saintifik, bagi menentukan ukur kedudukan dalam menjalankan pentadbiran negara, berdasarkan kepada prinsip Maqasid Syariah.”

                  What a snake you are. After backtracking on the word “hidden hand”, you’ve decided to slither sideways now.

                  If there’s been a millennia of mistrust of Christians by the Muslims, I’m sure the Muslims would have encountered ‘born again’ characters like you.

        There’s no hidden hand or sneaky semantics. These people are doing it openly, right in front of you. The pretension is long gone. There’s no need to be shy about it. They have the G25 or other Gs to help them. So it’s now open season for them.

      Orang Cina kat Tanah Besar Cina dan kerajaan Cina sendiri di Beijing pun tak suka ngan evangelista ni. Evangelis adalah gelombang ‘baru’ Kristian jenis yang lahir semula. Dema juga berselisih dengan Kristian puak lama.

        Betul tu, Helen. Saya ada ramai kawan Cina Kristian sejak dari zaman sekolah sehingga di tempat kerja. They are one of the nicest people around. Langsung tak kurang ajar dan samseng macam golongan Evangelis sekarang ini. That’s why our friendship remains sampai kepada umur kami bersara.
