Tunku Aziz Ibrahim says DAP lawmakers openly supported Bersih 4.0. for political gain and that the rally was organized by the Chinese “to flex their muscles”.
He also says fixing the demo on the eve of our National Day was insensitive and provocative as “the Chinese have never identified with Merdeka through our 58 years of independence”.
As only to be expected, Tunku Aziz’s commentary made the Chinese go ape shit. There are 374 reader responses alone to the Malaysiakini report two days ago, ‘Chinese flexing muscles at Malays, says Tunku Aziz‘.
Same old, same old accusations
Tunku Aziz, and Umno, are accused of racializing Bersih 4.0.
“… you could only spew venom to please your political masters” – screenshot here. Tunku Aziz is also accused of being paid by Umno to racialize the rally.
“Such being the case, one also cannot help coming to the obvious conclusion that you have been paid by your political master to come out using such stupid and highly sensitive statements to try to draw the public’s attention away from the 1MDB scandal. – See Malaysiakini article yesterday, ‘In one fell swoop, Tunku Aziz discredits himself irreparably’
In the same article, Tunku Aziz is told, “if you bother to read from the numerous comments posted by Malaysiakini readers, you will realised (sic) that you have not succeeded in your ploy”.
More same old typical allegations
Tunku Aziz, and Umno, are accused of playing the race card to sow hatred.
They are accused of pitting the Malays against the Chinese.
Umno is accused of being a “tyrannical power” and described as “a government that has decayed beyond redemption”. Umno leaders are alleged to be “bandits and thieves”.
They call Tunku Aziz a small man trying to be a hero to the Malays.
He is accused of shamefully pretending to care about the Malays when he’s actually only promoting himself.
“After 58 years, you are still thinking along racial lines. The Malays can see for themselves how you have actually betrayed them with this bulls**t of keeping the Malay race ‘safe’.” – screenshot here
He is further accused of trying to take some kind of revenge against his former party DAP by blaming the Bersih Chinese.
Same old, same old ‘Colour Blind’ chant
Supporters of Bersih 4.0 claim that the rally was to call for a “clean government”. They claim they want a “government free from corruption, racism and oppression”.
“The Bersih participants want to fight for a better Malaysia.”
“… what I saw was full of patriotism and love for the country among the many Chinese”
And “friendship between the races who saw themselves as Malaysians”.
More same old ‘Beyond Race’ mantra
They say Tunku Aziz is taking such a “racist” stand. (They ignore the fact that he has a Chinese wife.)
They claim the Chinese do not “distinguish between races”.
They accuse Umno followers and Umno politicians interpreting of everything “on the basis of race or religion”. (They ignore the fact that Tunku Aziz was the DAP vice chairman, not an Umno member.)
They describe racial polarization and suspicion as “the norm fostered by Umno and people like him over the years”.
Then they ask why Malaysians “constantly see things through coloured lens?”
Tunku Aziz the “downright racist” race baiter
Quotes below are taken from yesterday’s Malaysiakini article, ‘After DAP, Tunku Aziz joins race-baiters‘.
“The hatred this man has for the Chinese has consumed him so”, said someone about Tunku Aziz in the article above.
Remarking on Chinese haters,
“There are many others of his kind like him [Tunku Aziz] within and without the tyrannical, dictatorial regime. Now you can understand why his country is a failed state.” (See screenshot here)
Tunku Aziz’s kind are described as “very rotten, putrefied, corrupt specimens” who deceive and leech on their own Malays as well as on everyone else – screenshot here.
“You desire racial warfare to bring emergency rule so your kind can hold on to power.” – screenshot here
Tunku Aziz the “senile old man” getting more senile
They want to lock him up in jail or put him in a mental asylum.
Quotes below taken from yesterday’s Malaysiakini article, ‘Scratch a little and the racial supremacist emerges’
“Tunku Aziz has gone bonkers for uttering such highly inflammatory statements. […] He ought to be put behind bars; better still, confined in an asylum.” – screenshot here
Racist! Racist! Racist!
And extremist too.
They say Tunku Aziz has smeared, spit and cursed at the Chinese.
They accuse him of beating up the Chinese.
They predictably want him charged on sedition.
“Tunku Aziz has lost all his respect and honour by revealing that he is a racial supremacist and bigot.” – screenshot here.
