Ambassadors don’t do this kind of thing
Update (9.54pm): “Dr Mahathir also accused the government of encouraging racist sentiments, although Malaysians were getting on well together.” – see FMT‘s ‘Dr M flays government, Najib for red-shirts rally‘
Ambassadors “don’t do that,” said Wong Chin Huat, who is a fellow at the Penang Institute.
“I find it extraordinary because ambassadors don’t do things in public. You go make a call, you don’t leave a trace,” Wong was quoted as saying today by the Asia Sentinel.
Furthermore, the China ambassador didn’t make a clear distinction whether he was speaking for Chinese nationals or Malaysia’s ethnic Chinese as well, Wong pointed out.
“Some ethnic Malays feel uncomfortable with the idea that a Chinese ambassador is acting in a way that he appears to be representing the Chinese here,” said Wong to Asia Sentinel reporter John Berthelsen.
“Zero Chinese, only Malaysians” – Hannah Yeoh
I suppose we have MCA to thank for the China ambassador visiting Chinatown yesterday. It is the Malaysian CHINESE Assocation after all that has been cultivating ties with our motherland.
It begs the question – If the Anak Bangsa Malaysia cultivated by the DAP are raceless, then why the special interest shown in the country’s Chinese minority by the ambassador?
DAP, on the other hand, is purportedly “colour blind” and “beyond race” in addition to being Malaysian First.
Our patriotic Nasi Lemak-loving DAP would have surely no truck with China officials, if only on account of their ‘race’ (sharing a mutual ethnicity) alone. That would be “racist”!
Heck, Hannah ‘Hysterical’ Yeoh even finds our “extreme” weather to be racist – see her tweet below.
The Azirara Malay is the only good Malay
Interestingly – in my observation – for DAP, the only non-racist Malay is the Azirara Malay.
Who is Azirara? It’s Azira + Rara.
Meanwhile, Rara is the nickname for Syefura Othman, the DAP’s Impian programme coordinator in the East Coast states.
What is DAP’s understanding of racism and a racist?
DAP dibuatnya mandi tak basah, tidur tak lena oleh parti-parti BN yang dituduh bersifat “perkauman” beserta “rasis” oleh parti evangelis tersebut.
Di sini saya tidak sebut “makan tak kenyang” kerana jarang kita akan nampak Yang Berhormat-Yang Berhormat DAP (gambar bawah) kehilangan selera.
Racist! Racist! Racist!
Berating MCA, Hannah Yeoh once asked, “But do u expect a race based party to speak up against racism? No.”
Aunty Hannah has a very apparent phobia against against anything race-based.
She was heard to declare, “we have explained it clearly in the beginning, no point educating racist parties”. The Jerusubang idol is, however, more forgiving of individual racists whom she feels “must be taught how to love”.
Below is one example of the Firster / evangelistas teaching Malaysians how not to be racist. The screenshot of the most popular article of the day in the Malay Mail – regarding Marina Mahathir’s anti-racism stance – was snapped a fortnight ago.
The video clip given a delirious thumbs up by Marina Mahathir is a 5-and-½ minute offering by The Malay Mail that has garnered 665,961 views on YouTube. It is uploaded at the bottom of this page.
Below is Azmi Arshad’s critique of the Malay Mail video. I’m copypasting his write-up on race polemics in its entirety because I know that my blog readers are rather malas to click on links.
Cynicism is indeed most necessary where sneaky bastards are concerned
By Azmi Arshad
“I wouldn’t blame any of you for calling me a cynic. Sorry to pour cold water down your pants but the Are-Malaysians-Racist video is Opposition propaganda playing on sentiments as usual. I tried to squeeze a tear from my eye just like I tried to do when Lim Kit Siang burst into tears (when he claimed DAP were not allowed to use the Rocket logo for the elections), when Lim Guan Eng gave a comforting hug to a lady family member of a PPS member detained by Police and seeing a huge photo of Wan Azizah feeling ‘hurt’ by Hj Hadi Awang.
Azmi you racist, why the hell are you so cynical? Why can’t you just see the positive side regardless of who made the video? *sighhhh *
First of all, I commend all those in front of the camera. Syabas to them. Nobody in their right mind would utter derogatory remarks towards another race when requested by a stranger in a room and even more so when suspiciously offered money for it. (The nasty and racist comments we see in FMT, TMI, MKini and FB are a different story of course).
Well, let me just highlight some of the clues:
1. Marina Mahathir is excited by the video. Note: Marina is a Bersih supporter, Comango supporter and a pro-LBGT activist.
2. Marina Mahathir says “Take that all you racists!” (Actually who is she talking to specifically?) Note: That’s Opposition speak. Liberals and anti Malay institutions tend to shout out ‘racists’ to (supposedly) ‘racists’ (even to those who are not racists). Lim Guan Eng and other DAP leaders talk the same way.
3. The title of the video is “Are Malaysians racist?”. Note: ‘Malaysians’. I’ll come back to this later.
4. Participants reject money offers to utter racist remarks – Really… Would you have accepted the offer?
5. Malays are lazy / bodoh, Chinese are pendatang and Indians are pemabuk / smelly – Really seriously? ‘Lazy’ and ‘smelly’ are everyday words and are obviously not attributed to their heritage. They are however trying to make ‘pendatang’ taboo. Back to this later also.
6. PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil tweeted that he cried at the 3 minute mark. MMO even showed a screenshot of his tweet. Another attempt to make you reach for tissue. Note: PKR.
7. DAP Bukit Mertajam MP Steven Sim said he loved the video. Note: DAP.
8. The video is publicised by Malay Mail Online with all the accolades. MMO is of course another pro Opposition TMI. (MMO’s anti malay Sacred Cowlumnist Erna Mahyuni has blocked me on Twitter and Facebook).
Yes the video smells (pardon the pun) of Opposition. Then you tell me in the words of PPS chief Phee Boon Boh: SO WHAT? SO WHAT?
Sabar. Sabar. Don’t get emotional. Remember that Lim Guan Eng’s ‘touching’ speech in the last elections was also a tear jerker and I didn’t fall for it. I don’t know about you guys but whenever the Opposition comes up with anything touching I feel like I’m being touched in the wrong places.
Okay, my take on this Dappywood drama:
(a) Notice that they are trying to portray that Malaysian individuals are not racists. Why? Well, if the man on the street is not uttering racist remarks then who needs the SEDITION ACT / AKTA HASUTAN? Repeal it! (The timing of the release of this video is also pretty uncanny). Don’t even dream of bringing back the ISA of course.
(b) One other thing then… if the people are not racist then WHO is racist? After all, Opposition leaders and supporters are wailing racism all over the media. If not Malaysian citizens on the street, who then are they accusing of being racist? Siapa lagi… the Government, UMNO, ISMA, PERKASA, JAKIM, JAIS, UiTM and PDRM lahhhh. The Opposition have never dared to say that Malays are racists (and indeed we are not). Whenever the Malays voice out strongly against DAP provocation, DAP leaders and supporters will falsely attribute the dissenting voices to the Malay/Islamic institutions (Radicals! Extremists!). They refuse to acknowledge that these Malay institutions are the voices of the Malay population (save those ultra supporters of DAP, PKR and PASMA of course).
(c) They want ‘PENDATANG’ to be eradicated from our vocabulary because of its historical truth. I would not call a fellow Chinese friend pendatang to agitate him or to insult him. My great great grandfather was a pendatang. That doesn’t mean, however, that I should not be allowed to use the word ‘pendatang’ in the right historical context (as did the ISMA president, who was then wrongly charged for sedition). Using the word should not automatically make me a racist. I won’t accuse you of being racist if you call me bodoh and lazy although I can’t guarantee my good friend Ramesh Rao Krishnan Naidu won’t punch you in the face if you call him smelly. In fact I’ll punch you too to defend the integrity of my Indian friend but we won’t call you racist.
(d) By the way, it’s not okay to utter derogatory remarks (bodoh, lazy, smelly, pemabuk) but why should it be okay to utter expletives? Maybe they want the youth to have greater freedom of speech or maybe it’s just to add drama. One day a policeman may no longer be allowed to arrest a traffic offender for the latter saying “Eff you” to him after being handed a speeding ticket. (Some of you have read about bro Hassan Melayu‘s reaction towards a bangsat who swore at a policeman recently and ended up in an ambulance. One chap was also penalised for writing ‘Pu..mak’ on his summons for the benefit of the policeman who cited him).
Also don’t be surprised if the next video is a bunch of DAP Chinese selected at random expressing their love for Raja-Raja Melayu. Even I would have to grab a tissue. (If the producers want to impress me, have a video asking the Malays in Penang and Selangor whether DAP leaders and supporters are racist).”
(P/S – Since some people like to take things literally I have to qualify to say that I do have a few DAP friends who are not racist. A few also are merely misinformed or misled by DAP leaders).” – Source: Facebook
