Their similarity is that both were ultra kiasu.
Chinese saturated in Dapsterism
The difference between 5 May 2013 and 30 Aug 2015 is the degree of saturation. The Chinese at the present moment in time are very, very committed to the DAP.
Even MCA is hitting the panic button. It didn’t help that the party’s former president attended Bersih. How is MCA going to explain this to the BN chairman?

MCA alarmed by DAP’s confrontation
MCA president Liow Tiong Lai issued a press statement yesterday saying how alarmed his party is by the DAP’s “confrontational political approach” that is “creating tension in our society”.
He also condemned the “seeds of hatred” that are being sown by his rival party and added that the DAP had hijacked Bersih 4.0.

Yellow is the ‘ong’ colour
Bersih 4.0 was saturated by the Chinese, from the young to the old.
Nonetheless all these yellow shirts are like aliens from another world. They’re insensitive, for example, in bringing brooms to the rally.
Maria Chin excused the brooms by saying they merely symbolized “the cleaning up of a corrupt government” and were not intended to stoke racism” – see FMT report yesterday, ‘Maria and Bung disagree over Bersih’s broom‘.
Although Maria downplayed their significance, the incident nonetheless testifies to the wide cultural gap between the Chinese and the Malays who were upset at the sight of the brooms held high in the air.
The Chinese Tsunami 2.0 spooked the Malays who fear being swept by the yellow tidal wave into the sea.

Kalau tak hinggut, masakan pokok goyang. Dapsters are sneaky buggers, sure. But if all is well with UMNO / BN, yellow shirts brigade wouldn’t have the kind of impact they have right now. Sure DAP is evil. But is UMNO blameless?
Tantrums, lepaih geram, too greedy, demanding – everything only for themselves. Spoilt kids do these when they cant get what they want – kalo shopping you’ll see them screaming, tergolek2 kat lantai, smashing the toys not of their choice and hitting their parents in public.
British dulu sepakat gunapakai mereka to kikis harta karun bumi ini. Melayu kena dok kampung tanam padi , ubi, jagung, buat sampan pi tangkap ikan.
Yap educate our children. Macam Gambia punya President cakap.. The Sarawak Report punya Negara only teach us how to sing “god bless the queen and ba ba black sheep” too.
Corruption. Melayu tarak duit nak bagi. Nak rasuah China doll dosa besaq. Siapa raja korruption? Sekarang esp under Najib.. Sekok2 kena tangkap. Periok nasi mereka payah nak berasap. So they scream corruption bila tengok orang lain naik as that was how they once became rich. Ni kes GILA BAYANG.
Raja Sarawak Report nak anak jantan. Dia reka fitnah bini sendiri pasai nak kawin lain. Nama isteri macam dengan BERSIH4 organizer. Buat muka bodoh kepala isteri diguillotine. So they ambil teladan macam ni to chop off kepala pemimpin Melayu kita.
Memang jahat jenis2 manusia macam ni semua.
Alhamdulillah Bumiputra tanah pusaka ini majority adalah dari golongan orang Melayu beragama Islam.

Excuses and more excuses?
What else is new?
Like it’s others’ faults, but never mine?
And your take on corruption is interesting. Why fixate on “China dolls”? And just who are these “raja korruption”? Why don’t you name names and deal with the consequences come what may?
Are you saying that the “raja korruption” are all “givers” with no “takers”?
That’s strange logic because it avers that “korruption” only takes place in a vacuum populated by “givers”!
Looking at the issue from another angle, BERSIH 4.0 showed that the Chinese, young and old are brave enough to stand up and be counted. In previous BERSIH, UMNO and the government declared that BERSIH was a Malay-dominated demonstration. They are now saying that it is a Chinese-dominated event. Will they make up their mind? Typical of them to put a racial label on everything, except Merdeka celebrations.
A broom is a good symbol of what we should do with corrupted and inefficient leaders.
Salute to the youngsters of BERSIH4.0
Uncle Lim is now concerned about the fate of Indians.
This MCA is really in denial. It is a fact that most Bersih participants are Chinese. A fact is a fact. The same with Khalid Samad.
Since most participants are Chinese, definitely talking of race and Bersih cannot be separated. When the Bersih Chinese are saying that what they fight for all Malaysians, of course non Chinese would say hey you don’t represent me.
Again the communications in Bersih are in Chinese, how can Bersih be untied to the Chinese race issue. The surname + see tiam kong images on Facebook – all in Chinese.
What differentiates the two tidal waves?
A fulminating gay politikus was surfing the first tsunami to reach the shores of Putrajaya; while the second tsunami came to flush out the deteriorating debris in Putrajaya.
It has been said many times that DAP/PR are Orwellian in their actions and outlook – saying one thing and doing something totally opposed to that.
The same thing is being done for the BERSIH 4. They deny that there was a Chinese Tsunami or BERSIH 4 was Chinese-dominated. But when something is done by the others, they bring out their racial microscope and scream “racism”.
Like this Cina, pretending to be an uber Melayu, talks about Sekolah Cina. How convenient.
‘I also have friends who studied in Chinese vernacular schools all their lives, and who are today as Malaysian in outlook as the best of MCKK. Similarly, I have also met countless Europeans who are not the least bit bigoted, despite some of them growing up in all-Caucasian environments without having interacted with any non-Caucasians until they entered university or began working. – See more at: http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/opinion/zairil-khir-johari/article/the-problem-with-vernacular-schools#sthash.QXOI2ih7.dpuf
After all the bombardment he got from the Bersih Chinese, why must be come up with this? One lantern would not appease the Chinese. Did his dumb CONsultants (admin) suggest this silly stunt?
Imagine one comment of his FB.

You are riding again on fumes, are you?
“uber Melayu”? Is that a putdown of the Uber start-up that is valued at a few billion US dollars?
Of course, there isn’t any “uber Melayu” who is valued at a few billion US dollars! So the analogy isn’t entirely kosher, if you get my drift.
Btw, I read a report that madrasahs in Singapore are teaching secular subjects like English, Maths, Science and IT to their students in addition to their normal lessons.
Singapore madrasah students are being brought into the mainstream education system – no “us” and “them”.
So, if you are going after the “Sekolah Cina” in Malaysia, why don’t you start by persuading Malay parents to pull their kids out of these “vernacular” schools and plonk them into the “Sekolah Kebangsaan”? They can’t be good role models for the community, can they?
Dok pusing kelentong pi mai pi mai tang tu juga. You people know exactly what you are doing.
Dont bullshit with all these US billion dollar nonsense. Kalau orang spin kucing ada tandok also you people will believe wan. All herd mentality.
Just be direct saja la
DAP not taking good care of you people.
Punya le jeles tak boleh tengok org lain berjaya
So terpaksa buat kalut kasi semua olang kacau.
Cakap saja la..dekat Najib and UMNO
Tak payah minta sedekah pon.
Apa lu olang mau sebenarnya?
‘You are riding again on fumes, are you?’
Taklah. Ok ja. Aku ada ja kat sini. Hang yang sekejap ada sekejap cabut lari. Set baling batu sembunyi tangan la katakan. Macam kawan-kawan hang yang ada kat sini jugak.
Sibuk baca pasal bangsa penyangak…
‘Arawak men and women, naked, tawny, and full of wonder, emerged from their villages onto the island’s beaches and swam out to get a closer look at the strange big boat. When Columbus and his sailors came ashore, carrying swords, speaking oddly, the Arawaks ran to greet them, brought them food, water, gifts.
He later wrote of this in his log: They … brought us parrots and balls of cotton and spears and many other things, which they
exchanged for the glass beads and hawks’ bells. They willingly traded everything they owned… . They were well-built, with good bodies and handsome features…. They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane… . They would make fine servants…. With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.’

Tipikal macam apa yang sedang berlaku di Malaysia. Go and read it Leonidasthespartan, although I must admit, some people are just sepet, inside out. Nothing you and me, do about it. Kan?
‘Singapore madrasah students are being brought into the mainstream education system’
Big deal. Melayu Malaysia sudah buat lama la. You tak baca sejarah meh??
You should read today’s editorial (“Growing dissent making it tougher for M’sian leaders to defuse crisis”) in the Singapore Business Times (http://www.businesstimes.com.sg).
Can we expect Wisma Putra to lodge a protest with this paper and demand the right of reply?
You pi cakap kat Singapore. Tak payah kalut komen hal orang. Sana pun masalah dengan foreign workers. Singapore for Singaporeans.. Nak buat macam mana, citizens yang ada pun semua dah tua2 saja.
Retrenchment exercises ongoing tak renti2. Their own people also suffocating tercunggap2 leading stressful life. Got money got no life pun apa gunanya.
Just ask them to come over relax2 release tension kat Malaysia and spend their money cukup la.
‘Can we expect Wisma Putra to lodge a protest with this paper and demand the right of reply?’
Whi don’t you do it? You are Malaysian enough aren’t you? Anyway you resides in Singapore, kan? Do lah, something for your country, once…
