(Video) Lee Kuan Yew: Govt not obligated to treat everyone equally

Bodoh sombong people should be treated like the harmful idiots that they are. The Minister Mentor was not tolerant of stupidity and did not suffer fools gladly.

Lee Kuan Yew said in Parliament in 2009 – see video – quoting Article 152 of the Singapore Constitution on the Malay special position:

“The Government shall exercise its functions in such manner as to recognise the special position of the Malays, who are the indigenous people of Singapore …” (minute 3:24)

Lee Kuan Yew video

Reported in The Straits Times: (27 March 2015) @ ‘In his own words: ‘Equality is an aspiration, it is not reality, it is not practical’ – url here


In a motion to continue to affirm the tenets in the National Pledge when debating government policies, Nominated MP Viswa Sadasivan questioned if it was time for Singapore to move beyond race and treat everyone as an equal. The next day, Mr Lee Kuan Yew delivered one of his last major speeches in Parliament and took it upon himself to “bring the House back to earth”. He argued that equality of men is an aspiration rather than the reality.

Transcript of Lee Kuan Yew’s speech (4:10 in video):

“We expressly stated in our Constitution a duty on behalf of the Government NOT to treat everybody as equal.

“It’s not reality, it’s not practical. It will lead to grave and irreparable damage if we work on that principle.”

Be realistic about the kind of people we’re dealing with

They’re the sneakiest of bastards.

DAP and its supporters insist that Malays are “pendatang” too.

For a good rebuttal to the evangelistas and their “pendatang” taunt, read a commentary by Isma vice president (I) Muhammad Fauzi Asmuni on the concept of ‘perantau’. I had summarized Ustaz Fauzi’s points under the heading ‘Isma sekolahkan Umno(23 Oct 2014).

Hannah Yeoh colour blind

Blind – delusional people who look but are unable to see

Some delusional senior citizens, like J-Star associate editor M. Veera Pandiyan, insist “race is really a myth”, and writing, “there is no national, religious, linguistic or cultural group or economic class that constitutes a race”.

It’s not surprising that Veera would bamboozle like that. It only goes to show how far the MCA paper is under the control of journos aligned with the DAP point of view.

Nut Graph editor believes ‘Malay’ is only an artificial construct

Jacqueline Ann Surin, editor of the now defunct The Nut Graph, is in agreement with Veera’s idea that Race is an artificial construct – see screenshot above.

Surin writes that “the notion of the ‘Malay’ is a political construct that was initiated by the British, and continues to be a construct perpetuated by the current powers that be …” – ‘The problem with Malay unity’ (The Nut Graph, 25 Feb 2013).

To Ms Surin, “the rallying cry for Malay or Muslim unity can actually be heard as a clarion call for pitting Malaysians against one another”.

Editors of English-language media most vociferous against ‘Malay unity’ call

In her TNG column article (cited above) published a couple of months prior to GE13, Surin concluded her spiel against the ‘Malay unity’ clarion call by saying,

“On my part, I would rather vote for a politician or a party that argues truth based on facts, has the interest of all Malaysians at heart, and that promotes equality, fairness, justice, prudence, transparency and accountability”.

Surin predictably trotted out the DAP’s empty political jargon word for word – “equality, fairness, justice, prudence, transparency and accountability”.

Didn’t I tell you that the English-language media in Malaysia is firmly in the grasp of the opposition?

Hannah Racist Ugly Mouth Hodoh

Kenapa Melayu mesti bangkit?

Because Malays are being confronted by cheating and lying power grabbers who fear neither God nor the Devil.

An Isma editorial yesterday said:

“Banyak kontroversi yang berlaku dalam PKR, antaranya ialah Langkah Kajang dan penyingkiran bekas Menteri Besar Selangor, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, melalui fitnah yang ditaburkan.

“Ini menunjukkan kuatnya amalan fitnah dalam PKR dan mereka yang melakukannya tidak pula takut kepada Allah.”

PKR is a second rank pemfitnah. That they’re guilty of slander was proven when former PKR sec-gen Saifuddin Nasution apologized in open court to ex-Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim after Khalid sued Saifuddin and PKR for libel.


The top-ranking pemfitnah is of course the DAP evangelistas.

Even the evangelical party’s own leaders – Johor DAP ex-chairman Dr Boo Cheng Hau and ex-Johor DAP deputy chairman Norman Fernandez – lament that their own colleagues character assassinated them.

Both Dr Boo and Norman have complained about the vicious smear campaign carried out against them by a particular DAP faction.

Pity the two men for falling victim to their party’s politics of hate.

MCA has no place in the BN anymore

During its recent AGM, the MCA called for a National Reconciliation Council to mend religious ties and promote racial unity.

radioactiveI’m afraid any rapprochement is impossible given the dangerous delusions of the majority of the Chinese. For our personal safety, those contaminated by the DAP’s toxicity must be kept at arms’ length.

It is sheer stupidity to want to reconcile with people who tipu and bohong all the time and tantamount to the suicidal invitation “Please shoot me”. When the delusional people are willing to stop their endless putar belit and fitnah, we can talk.

BELOW: Shamshul Anuar @ 2015/10/13 at 10:25 am – “the non-stop slandering against Umno, Malays …” (and practically anyone who dares to cross the DAP)

Shamshul Anuar DAP slander

Treat backstabbers like they deserve

MCA should not expect be treated as a partner, much less an equal partner in BN, after they stabbed Umno in the back (through helping DAP push the Chinese tsunami).

Umno must take back the Malay-majority Parliament seats (see table below) that MCA lost in the last general election.

The following constituencies – Alor Setar, Padang Serai, Lumut, Bandar Tun Razak, Alor Gajah, Raub, Selayang and Seremban – must be contested by Umno candidates in the next general election.

Umno will also keep Kuantan, Gelang Patah and Wangsa Maju.

Make Wee Ka Siong’s prediction come true

MCA earned itself the nickname ‘7-Eleven’ for winning seven Parliament and 11 state seats in GE13 (see pie charts below).

For the record, the DAP won 38 Parliament and 105 state seats, counting those in Sarawak.

Party deputy president Wee Ka Siong warned that come the next election, MCA may be reduced to DaMaCai (numbers betting), that is, 1+3D.


Wee’s fears that MCA will win one Parliament and three state seats in GE14 is overly optimistic.

Out of the MCA’s current seven Parliament seats, only Labis has more Chinese voters than it has Malay voters.

Hence PAS should contest the remaining six of those presently held by the MCA, namely Ayer Itam (Wee’s Parliament ward), Alor Gajah, Tanjong Malim, Bentong, Tanjung Piai and Tebrau.

Chinese voters GE13

PKR has very little real support of its own

Leaders in PKR do not have a voters’ base of their own. They make it past the goalpost largely on the votes of Malays who are PAS supporters and the votes of Chinese who are DAP supporters.

On its own, PKR was unable to turn out Malays for Bersih 4.0 despite all the party’s top leaders turning up at the rally.

An example of a leader with no support is Saifuddin Abdullah who fits the typical PKR leadership profile of having no grassroots followers.

Chinese choose to gorge on DAP delusions … so be it

There is no doubt whatsoever that DAP thoroughly dominates the Chinese electorate.

DAP won all – every single one with the sole exception of Miri – Parliament seats where there’s an absolute Chinese majority, i.e. more than 50 percent Chinese voters.

BELOW: Young Chinese are indeed delusional, e.g. the girl below who believes Lynas is radioactive

Aren't the Firsters supposed to be colour blind? Why the 'Bangsa' placard?

With PAS out of Harapan, the oppo is Chinese

PKR performed best in the Parliament seats with between 20 and 40 percent Chinese voters.

While the Chinese votes in the next election will stay with PKR (if DAP instructs the Chinese to vote PKR as part of mutual cooperation between the two parties), the Malay votes on the other hand will desert PKR once it is clear that PAS is not with Pakatan Harapan.

Hannah Racist Ugly Mouth HodohPKR cannot hold on to its seats without PAS feeding it the Malay voters. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprise if PKR is quietly trying to cut a deal with Umno-BN.

Between PKR and PAS, it’s a ‘No Contest’ as to which party Umno should pick.

PAS is the workhorse and has proven itself to possess more integrity by rejecting the Kajang Move and standing by Khalid Ibrahim who was the victim of PKR and DAP fitnah.

PKR is not only responsible for Langkah Kajang but had also tried to entice Barisan MPs to cross over during Anwar Ibrahim’s failed Sept 16 gambit.

DAP asyik menghasut – cacing sudah naik ke mata

Here’s the calculus.

MCA is as good as dead.

If PAS is smart, it had better beat PKR to the negotiation table with Umno.

Some young and urban voters are disenchanted with BN and this swing will be made worse with the rising cost of living and economic downturn. However, BN will still be able to weather a strong challenge from the Chinese-led opposition if there is Malay unity.

There will be no elected Chinese representation in the BN government post-GE14.

They are punch drunk on the DAP’s 24/7 cycle of incitement and breeding hatred like Hannah Yeoh’s tweet below. Let the Chinese enjoy their Happy Hour while it lasts. After 2018, it will be UBAH for real but not the change they had in mind.



I have no Faceook or Twitter.

  1. Seperti yg telah saya katakan sebelum ini, isu-isu nasional memberikan impaks besar undi kaum Melayu di Selangor.. DS Najib perlu bertindak pantas menangani apa jua permasalahan sensasi sekarang. Tol? hanya di Selangor yang mana tol-tol nya tidak terkira banyaknya…Boleh dikatakan kadar miskin bandar dikalangan orang melayu ditahap yg membimbangkan. Mereka bukan kisah, sepatutnya Pakatan Rakyat yg patut dipersalahkan sebab dia orang yg tadbir Selangor..Kesan ‘tension’ kehidupan sehari-hari diterjemahkan dalam bentuk undi pada PRU13 hari tu..persepsi yg Selangor sepatutnya di bawah tanggungjawab DAP,PKR dan PAS susah dibuang..BN masih lelap…thanks

    1. re: “BN masih lelap…”

      Iya lah. Macam waktu PRU13 dulu, DS Najib pun boleh percaya kat janji MCA bahawa undi Cina ada bersama BN.

      Cina-Cina semua kat bawah tu yang bawa sepanduk “I love PM”.

  2. Helen,

    Actually, the Malays are showing the way out to UMNO, Najib. Najib termed the massive Chinese rejection as “chinese tsunami”. But he overlooked a much more important factor that make UMNO prevails :MALAY TSUNAMI.

    Malays alone successfully defended the State Government of Perak. In NS even without Chinese support, UMNO prevails. and all other Malay states won by BN are actually almost entirely won by UMNO.

    More seats would have been won had UMNO faced with reality. The reality is that MCA has outlived its purpose. That MCA despite being propped by UMNO is more interested to vote DAP in.

    How come UMNO lost in Gelang Patah. MCA told that it has thousands of memders in Gelang patah. Who is their choice? Ghani Othman or Kit siang? It is known for the world to see that MCA members itself voted DAP Kit Siang.

    UMNO’s predicament is that despite all UMNO members would support if UMNO announces it would contest Malay areas like Kulim, Alor Setar, Lumut, Alor Gajah, Titi serong, Padang Serai, Cameron Highland, THE VERY PERSON who decides(Najib) refuses to do so.

  3. Some delusional senior citizens, like J-Star associate editor M. Veera Pandiyan, insist “race is really a myth”, and writing, “there is no national, religious, linguistic or cultural group or economic class that constitutes a race”.

    Jacqueline Ann Surin, editor of the now defunct The Nut Graph, is in agreement with Veera’s idea that Race is an artificial construct.

    My oh my. These people really do make the US their kiblat.. In fact, those in the US have gone one step further by consistently implying, enforcing, and propagandising that gender is also a myth/social construct/artificial construct. Years and tears of this brainwashing and propaganda resulted in these freakshows (WARNING: May be Safe For Work, but get a few barf bags ready):

    Heck, out of that, came sophisticated sounding words & phrases such as “cisgender”, “pansexual”, “racial fluidity”, etc. If the pattern (and lack of imagination) stays true, I’m waiting for any one of these sycophants to utter the phrase “racial fluidity”. If that happens, I’ll have my time of the day using that phrase to troll the hell out of them.

    Then again, fat chance lah. It’ll be “anak Bangsa Malaysia” all the way. So sneaky just like you said, Helen!

    I apologise if this is a bit out of topic. But the gist of my post still holds: They are willing to use any means necessary to achieve what they want, even if it is destructive in the short and long term. And they will start by using snappy jargon and phrases to trick the many gullible in Malaysia.

    1. “Heck, out of that, came sophisticated sounding words & phrases such as “cisgender”, “pansexual”, “racial fluidity”, etc.”

      CORRECTION: Gender fluidity, not “racial fluidity”.

      “If the pattern (and lack of imagination) stays true, I’m waiting for any one of these sycophants to utter the phrase “racial fluidity”.

      This line & phrase is correct however.

  4. Kak Helen,

    I once had an American professor for ethnicity and religion in politics. He said that the Malay race was an artificial construct created during the colonial era.

    Immediately, the entire class (mostly Chinese) jumped on the bandwagon and started to attack and ridicule the Malay race and reduce it to nothing albeit in a more silk gloved manner (although their eagerness and ruthlessness belie their malicious intent).

    Paling memual sekali, dorang cuba nak sembunyikan niat jahat dorang di balik topeng seorang yang pakar dan berprofessional.

    Then, the professor told them to quieten down.

    Then he continued, ‘the Chinese race was also an artificial construct. Originally, the Chinese peoples identified themselves with their clan, provincial and dynastic ties. They had no concept of a one Chinese race’.

    Immediately, that served as a sieve. All the closeted chauvinist racists started to get agitated and pissed off. Then they started to ‘counter’ his statement in a contrived calm composure … though it was damn obvious they had much trouble trying to control their rage.

  5. For those who may be interested this is Singapore’s National Pledge:

    We, the citizens of Singapore,
    pledge ourselves as one united people,
    regardless of race, language or religion,
    to build a democratic society based on justice and equality so as to achieve happiness, prosperity and progress for our nation.

    (Malay original)
    Kami, warganegara Singapura, sebagai rakyat yang bersatu padu, tidak kira apa bangsa, bahasa, atau agama, berikrar untuk membina suatu masyarakat yang berdemokratik, berdasarkan kepada keadilan dan persamaan untuk mencapai kebahagiaan, kemakmuran dan kemajuan bagi negara kami.

    * * *
    It would be good to have at least a few Malay culture-centric schools in Singapore (aside from the small madrasahs) when there are already so many Chinese-centric national schools.

    1. re: “Chinese-centric national schools”

      Budaya teras kot berlandaskan identiti bangsa kaum majoriti.

      Bila DAP berkuasa nanti, kami di Malaysia pun boleh ikut jejak langkah Singapura dan manghayati pesanan suapaya “tidak kira apa bangsa, bahasa, atau agama” (tapi keCinaan dalam diam) macam anak Hannah Yeoh itu yang bukan keturunan India.

    1. Uncle, nepotism is practised in almost all the politics of every country.

      LKY’s argument is making a much bigger point, i.e. that Singapore has Article 152 which gives the Malays a ‘special position’ because they’re recognised as the “indigenous people” of his country.

      If one ethnic group enjoys special position, then it is the law of the land (Constitution) that differentiates.

      Ambassador-at-large Bilahari Kausikan understands this reality. If the Chinese are seeking equality in Malaysia, it’s better to adopt Singapore’s realist approach than the DAP’s delusion and leading their sheeple down the garden path and off the edge of the cliff.

      1. Yes, but Singapore also mandated the use of English as the official language.

        And Singapore does not have an official religion.

        1. It works for Singapore. Malaysia is not Singapore.

          You can’t force a one size to fit all.

          Bilahari Kausikan wrote a grounded commentary. The point to be made to the Chinese is that one to be realistic and pragmatic about Malaysia and not try to nibble the DAP pie in the sky.

          Work with the hand (cards) we’re holding. Not bank on the ace which we think we have up our sleeve.

          1. Exactly right.

            Maybe that’s why MAS had to be bailed out (more than once) while SIA soldiers on profitably.

            Anyway this Malaysia versus Singapore thing is getting to be tiresome. It’s not going to change the facts on the ground and the realpolitik.

            Singapore is going to continue to do what it has always done – to be the good kid in a bad neighbourhood. Which foreign investors love.

            It is just tough s**t if you can’t compete with that!

      2. Ms H. You have a point. I recognised this point long long ago. The problem with Lee Kuan Yew was that he had an ABNORMAL approach on everything which he interpreted in a legalistic way. As a result, my last count of his Policy failures amounted to 42. Let us re-visit TJS George a famous journalist of Mother India with his unsolicited and independent comment.’ The West has spread the impression thawt Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew is Asia’s outstanding economic miracle man while Malaysia’s Mahathir as a cantankerous ogre, hater of white people and a dictator to boot. Both are dressed up portraits. What makes Mahathir special is that while pursuing economic progress, he never lost sight of the larger picture of human values. That cannot be said of Lee Kuan Yew and certainly not of Indonesia’s Suharto or Thailand’s Thaksin Shinawatra.’ I admire and respect the Indians of Mother India for the intellect, culture and their legacies.

        1. And yet PM Modi has expressed his admiration for LKY and Singapore.

          Singapore and India have very cordial diplomatic, business and economic relationships.

          Several hundred Indian companies have set up offices and regional HQs in Singapore to service the region.

          Thousands of Indians (skilled and unskilled) are working in Singapore.

          Indian culture and arts are flourishing in Singapore. As too the major Indian religions.

          So what are you driving at here?

      3. Ms H. How many of us realise that Lee Kuan Yew based his Policies on just the 70% of the Singaporean population and the 30% minority is left out. This is the nub of his Policy failures on this false assumption. His only concern was to provide the minority 30% with manual jobs which I observed as long ago as 1969 in the Jurong Industrial Park factories.

        1. The 70% majority in Singapore didn’t make Mandarin the official language in the country!

          Unlike, say, in Malaysia?

          Which is why Singapore schools treat everyone one on an equal footing. Goes to for the tertiary institutions there.
