MCA backstabbed BN again! … Attn: Rahman Dahlan & Salleh Keruak
Sack MCA already, please!
Bernama reports pengerusi BN Pulau Pinang Teng Chang Yeow sebagai berkata “Lim [Guan Eng] telah memperdayakan orang ramai untuk mempercayai bahawa tema sambutan ialah ‘Bersih, Cekap, Amanah’ sedangkan apa sebenarnya yang diumumkannya sebelum ini ialah ‘Bersih’.”
The dictionary translates the word ‘perdaya’ to mean ‘deceive’. Thus the statement by BN Penang chairman Teng Chang Yeow (who is from Gerakan) is tantamount to saying that Lim Guan Eng had been deceitful in his spin over the ‘Bersih’ slogan for his state Merdeka celebration.
But the MCA-owned newspaper sneakily covered up for Guan Eng.
Gunting dalam Lipatan
A comparison between different media reports will show how The J-Star tried to save Guan Eng’s arse.
The following is the Malay Mail‘s Aug 24 headline – ‘Guan Eng should apologise for creating divisive society over Merdeka Day theme, says BN man’.
The “BN man” referred to by the paper headline is Teng.
The Malay Mail quoted from Teng’s statement that Guan Eng had misled people into believing that the theme was ‘Bersih, Cekap, Amanah’ when the actual announcement he made earlier was ‘Bersih’.
Pay attention, okay.
The Malay Mail reported Teng as saying:
“He [Guan Eng] tried to create an impression that it was the federal government that is playing politics when he is the one actually doing it.
“One vernacular paper even quoted the date he made the announcement on ‘Bersih’ as the theme. So, it is not too much to ask for an apology from him.”
By referencing the Chinese newspaper report on the date that ‘Bersih’ was first announced, MCA could have easily proven that Penang’s original choice of rebel slogan was ‘Bersih’ (one word alone). And then when he got the heat, Guan Eng pretended that it is Dr M’s ‘Bersih, Cekap, Amanah’ instead. Sneaky bastard!
BN Penang had nailed Guan Eng on his sly deceit but the J-Star refrained from telling its readers this. (Side note: The EvangeliSTAR even makes it a point to deliberately select and publish positive stories that paint DAP in a good light in Penang.)

Nest of Evangelistas, pit of vipers
Now compare how The J-Star reported the same Guan Eng-Bersih story – screenshot at the bottom of this page.
The EvangeliSTAR Aug 25 article is so slanted in favour of Guan Eng and his DAP-led Penang government that it could well be a textbook guide on how to carry out classic Goebbels propaganda.
See how the Scissorati stab
(1) The J-Star reported that “Penang has relented on the Merdeka Day theme …”.
“Relent” hints at a conciliatory overture. What Penang did was not “relent”. It backpedaled after Guan Eng was decisively cornered.
(2) The J-Star reported Guan Eng as saying, “It is with a heavy heart that we are withdrawing the state theme.”
“Heavy heart”, konon. The paper is making as if Penang is the sad victim here of federal bullying.
(3) The J-Star quoted Guan Eng as further saying, “We hope there will be no more problem for federal agencies to take part in the state-level parade”.
Hullo, hullo! The one who created the “problem” in the first place is Penang when all the 13 other states have no issue with the ‘Sehati sejiwa’ national theme. It’s sickening to see how the Nest of Evangelistas is trying to warp public perception.
(4) The J-Star reported Guan Eng as revealing how “the state-level celebration had been using a different theme since 2010 without any problem”.
What the paper should have done was ask him why Penang had to be so contrarian and divisive when the DAP is always proclaiming itself ‘Malaysian First’. How Malaysian First is it when Penang goes on its own path and different direction from the rest of the country?
(5) The J-Star quoted Guan Eng as adding, “We are very disappointed that this had to happen”.
The paper is helping Guan Eng to portray himself as being treated badly when he was really the troublemaker.
(6) The next bits of the J-Star‘s reporting is so gila babi I’m going to be sick.
The paper said (note the EvangeliSTAR‘s choice of words that I’ve highlighted in red italics):
“Yesterday, armed forces public relations division head Lt-Kol Bakhtiar Nor Md Alias said in a statement that it was glad over Penang’s latest announcement and would now take part in the parade for the spirit and joy of Merdeka.
“Penang Education director Datuk Osman Hussain, said he, too, was glad that the state had adopted the national slogan. […]
“Penang MCA chairman Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun praised Penang for upholding the spirit of Malaysia’s independence. ‘This is happy news. Every Malaysian should share the same theme, whether or not we support the political parties,’ she said.”
The level of spin contained above hands the Raja Gasing title to the MCA paper with no contest
MCA adalah musuh dalam selimut
The J-Star has made out the responses above like the public figures quoted (Bakhtiar Nor Md Alias, Osman Hussain, Chew Mei Fun) are all one big happy family with Guan Eng, and never mind the controversy and tension that Guan Eng had sparked and resulting in three threats of boycott – by the schools, army and police.
(7) We already know that Teng blew the whistle on Guan Eng’s sneakiness but the J-Star chose to bury Teng’s statement. Although he is the BN Penang chairman, the MCA-owned paper only gave him a one line write-up, as following:
“Penang Barisan Nasional chairman Teng Chang Yeow also welcomed the move but said the state should apologise for creating a divisive society.”
The Nest of Evangelistas are not only sneaky bastards, they’re the vilest of backstabbers.
Buat apa BN nak pikul biawak hidup ni?
I really can’t understand how Umno is willing to take this crap. Fence-sitting and middle ground Malays are already turning against Umno and yet the Parti Paling Tidak Apa still continues to permit the Nest of Evangelistas to cucuk-cucuk their jarum halus dan berbisa.
Chew on this, okay.
The J-Star credits BN Penang chairman Teng Chang Yeow as saying that Penang “should apologise for creating a divisive society”. It’s quite sick on top of sneaky how The J-Star has shifted the blame to Penang state when the mischief originates from Guan Eng.
The Bernama headline is ‘Lim harus mohon maaf kerana cetus perbalahan berhubung tema Hari Kebangsaan’.
Or if you compare with an English paper, even the Malay Mail headline said ‘Guan Eng should apologise for creating divisive society…’. Yet The J-Star tai chi to make it that Teng said “Penang” should apologize.
MCA dah jadi cacing naik ke mata
Penang BN chairman Teng Chang Yeow’s statement on the matter of Guan Eng’s ‘Bersih’ slogan had received substantive coverage from Bernama and even in the other English papers but not in the paper owned and controlled by the MCA!
The J-Star’s distorted coverage of Teng’s statement amounted to only 14 words – “welcomed the move but said the state (sic) should apologise for creating a divisive society” in a throwaway last paragraph. In contrast, the Malay Mail highlighted Teng’s statement in its headline.
Briefly, just so you know what Malay Penangites think about the controversy, Bernama reported Umno state liaison chairman Zainal Abidin Osman as saying, “keputusan awal kerajaan DAP Pulau Pinang untuk menggunakan tema ‘Bersih’ bagi sambutan Hari Kebangsaan peringkat negeri adalah berniat jahat dan berbaur politik murahan“.
Zainal Abidin also corroborated Teng’s expose, saying in his statement, “Perubahan kepada tema ‘Bersih, Cekap dan Amanah’ dibuat hanya setelah tema awal kerajaan negeri dikritik hebat oleh beberapa pihak”.
An honest reporting on the issue illustrates what a scumbag Guan Eng really is. But the J-Star‘s reporting has served to whitewash him. It portrayed nothing of Penang Chief Minister’s “niat jahat dan politik murahan”.
Very simply put, MCA must be held accountable for the J-Star‘s skulduggery. If the Umno top leadership is still refusing to do anything to rein in the sneaky Scissorati, then the Malay grassroots must wipe out MCA in the next election.
The game plan is easy peasy. PAS (or Isma) will contest in the Malay-majority seats against MCA. PAS or Isma will win. BN represented by duri dalam daging MCA will definitely lose.
PAS / Isma can later use these formerly MCA seats they’ve won as bargaining chips with Umno-BN.
PAS and Isma should take this course of action because it is clear that the MCA is colluding with the evangelistas. MCA has no honour for betraying the BN like this.
If MCA had any honour left, wajib berundur cara terhormat sekarang juga. Kelompok tak bermaruah bikin malu kaum Tionghua.
