Zahid Hamidi: Race-based schools are divisive
In an interview with Berita Harian on Saturday, Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said segregating children by race through the education system is divisive –
“Mana boleh sebuah negara ada tiga sistem berbeza berdasarkan kaum dan agama yang tiada titik pertemuan. Kita kena ada pendidikan nasional yang melangkaui batasan kaum, agama dan bangsa.”

You will not see a Chinese face in a Tamil school, and rarely one in the Sekolah Kebangsaan. Chinese children are actively segregating themselves from the other races.
The present vernacular system allows for division according to language streams. How divisive! And the Chinese are the ones embracing this divisiveness at full throttle.
Zahid has called for all children to study under one roof. Yet in a warped response, Lim Guan Eng twistedly turned the tables by accusing Zahid of promoting disunity. Boleh pula! See, ‘Unite us, don’t destroy us, Guan Eng tells DPM‘ (The Malay Mail, 2 Aug 2015).
Guan Eng told a press conference on Sunday that the DAP disagreed with Zahid and further accused the DPM of “breaking the people apart”.
The DAP sec-gen also hoped that Zahid would make statements “that unite the people instead”. Guan Eng is clearly pulling the Bak Kut Teh-is-not-pork stunt, i.e. Doublespeak.
Race-based politics is racist
Papa Dapster is just about as confused as his protege Mama Dapster who complains about “race-based politics” but fudges when it comes to race-based schools.
First, Hannah is unhappy that MCA claims credit for the existence of SJK(C) and the she goes on to berate MCA and MIC and Umno for their “race-based politics”. Anything “race-based” is bad in the DAP’s books. It’s “racist”, you see.
Hannah urges “Folks let’s move beyond race!” – see her tweet above.
She is adamant that “race-based BN must go” – see her tweet below.
She objects to BN ministers playing “the race card”. This race-based orientation, in Hannah’s view, is so “Pathetic. Backward thinking“. She thinks the race-based party MCA is “pathetic” – see her tweet below.
She calls upon the concerned public to join the DAP in “knocking out race based politics” in Malaysia.
Hannah said, “BN tak mampu berubah, race based yesterday, today & foreva!” It looks like the DAP is similarly incapable of change by wanting to cling on to race-based schools yesterday, today & foreva.
But at the same time, Hannah believes that “young Malaysians reject race based politics“. She declares “race based politics must be put to an end“, and repeats her assertion that “race based policies” must be abolished in order for us to have a united country.
Her biggest dream for this country is for “Malaysia to be free from race based politics“. She reiterates this wish every Merdaka Day … “My Merdeka wish & prayer : Malaysia to be free from race based politics!”, “May our great nation be free from corruption & race based politics,” proclaims Hannah.
As you can see from above, the typical DAP politician is anal retentive about how destructive “race-based” anything is.
Hannah Yeoh even publicly dissed Malay flat dwellers in Subang Jaya for trying to form a residents association based on race.
Hannah Yeoh: “next generation can shape their reality the way they want it to be. Enough of race based la, u not sick of it meh?” – see tweet below
Hannah: “Enough of race based la”
It is clear from the vehement protestations above that the DAP Malaysian First icon(s) are dead set against anything that is race based.
It is also clear how the DAP Malaysian Malaysia ideology does not condone race-based schools which are divisive in nature and promoting disunity among the races. (“Enough of race based la, u not sick of it meh?” – Hannah)
Should the government decide to abolish Chinese schools, it can rely on the DAP for their full support.
This is because the DAP Malaysian Malaysia ideology seeking to create bangsa Anak Malaysia endorses ‘Malaysian’ (“no Malays, no Indians too, zero Chinese, all Malaysians”) schools where the races study together as brothers and sisters.
Vernacular schools are race based. They are divisive! DAP thinks they’re bad.
