No, No, No versus Go, Go, Go
Looking at how the party leaders are giving statements one after another, I’m reminded of the body segments of a caterpillar lining up in a row.
Cannot, cannot, cannot!
♥ Vis-a-vis Bersih 4.0 and Red Shirt rally, MCA president Liow Tiong Lai said “there should not be a tit-for-tat action“.
[Okay lah, the Chinese can TIT Najib on the left cheek with Tsunami (1), and then on the right cheek with Tsunami (2) to bring down his government but when the Malays wanna TAT back, waah cannot leh.]
♥ Asking for the rally to called off, MCA deputy president Wee Ka Siong said to replace it with a programme that can create unity among Malaysians.
[WKS should have asked Bersih to call off their divisive rally and replace it with a programme that could create unity among Malaysians. He missed the chance.]
♥ The question of its legality aside, MCA vice president Chew Mei Fun said that such gatherings must also be done in a “positive and peaceful manner without any thick racial overtones“.
[Urm, why doesn’t Ms Chew trust the Red Shirts rally to be just as positive, peaceful and without any thick racial overtones as Bersih? Is she being colour biased?]
♥ MCA vice president Chua Tee Yong said the holding of any protest rally does not bring any benefit to the country.
[Now why didn’t the MCA leaders say this just as vociferously about Bersih last fortnight?]
♥ MCA sec-gen Ong Ka Chuan said MCA is against the Red Shirt gathering which “only seeks to narrow-mindedly demonstrate the strength of a particular race”.
[The bright yellow of Bersih 4.0. must have temporarily blinded Ong, so much so that he failed to see its mono-racial show of strength.]
♥ ♥ ♥ The MCA committee collectively said that the only possibility of their party agreeing is if the Red Shirt organizers dropped the racial provocation as well as “agree to hold it elsewhere – such as in a stadium”.
[Cool. Is there a suitable stadium in Subang Jaya?]
Green light from Umno for the Reds
On the other side, Umno president Najib Razak said the Umno members are free to join the Red Shirts rally as long as they act within the confines of the law.
Umno vice president Zahid Hamidi said the party members are given free will on this matter.
Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin is following Najib’s lead.
Waiting for the Wanita Umno body segment to say their piece.
What’s eating MCA?
Will Umno and MCA agree to disagree like the defunct Pakatan used to do?
Or will they still adhere to the old BN consensus formula? Will MCA consent to respect Umno’s differing stance?
And what is MCA so antsy about anyway? The BN Chinese party is like cacing kepanasan over the Sept 16 planned gathering.
Hai yah, if the Yellow Shirts can rally and the MCA-owned newspaper cheerleading them on, why can’t the Red Shirts also rally?
