Congratulations Isma, you’ve arrived!
‘They’ hate you with a vengeance, Isma. And they hate you almost as much as they hate Umno. So you must be hitting some raw nerves and really getting under their skin.
Btw, they seem to have momentarily forgotten their ‘turn the other cheek’ preachiness as well as declaration that they have only lurrve for their enemies. The hate is palpable in their evident bias.
‘Bizarre’ through Chinese eyes
The Vulcan Post makes an annual Top 10 list to censure Malaysian “leaders”. Before we get to this year’s Hall of Shame compiled by the tech-lifestyle portal’s Chinese writers – our thanks to commenter Pwincess for alerting us – let’s look first at their 2014 list.
All the public figures cited in the Vulcan Post list last year of “10 bizarre things said by Malaysian leaders in 2014” were Malay. So much for Malaysian Malaysia and the greatly touted ‘multiracial’ outlook.
In her compilation, the Vulcan Post’s writer Jean Khoo apparently could not think of a single Chinese or DAP leader who had put his foot in the mouth.
The 10 “leaders” cited in Ms Khoo’s article for saying “bizarre” things are as below. Isma folks can take pride in registering on the radar and being acknowledged as Malaysian leaders.
Top 10 bizarre — according to Vulcan Post
- Najib Razak (Umno)
- Mohd Hazizi Ab Rahman (Isma)
- Abdullah Zaik Abdul Rahman (Isma)
- Nor Saleha Mohd Salleh (Isma)
- Mohamad Nawar Ariffin (Umno)
- Mohd Zaidi Mohd Said (Umno)
- Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar (Umno)
- Mohd Hafarizam Harun (Umno)
- Bung Moktar Radin (Umno)
- Mahathir Mohamad (Umno)
Lately there is no hiding the attitude of the Chinese towards the Malays anymore, is there?
‘Weird’ through Chinese eyes
Pwincess commented @ 2015/12/04 at 12:23 pm that when she read the words “Malaysian leaders”, she expected to see a balanced report and find si Gemuk Soalan Mulut among the political luminaries on the Vulcan Post 2015 list.
The portal’s compilation this year has expanded to fifteen — “15 weird things said by Malaysian leaders in 2015 that have baffled the rakyat”.
Pwincess remarked, “If you look at the entry, you will start to see a pattern.”
“Top 15 things considered ‘weird’ by Anna of Vulcan Post were uttered either by BN politicians, Malay figures or those related to Islamic institutions in Malaysia,” observed Pwincess. “Well, to be fair, one PKR MP was included in the Top 15 but then again he’s a Malay Muslim, so still fits the ‘bill’ right?”
Top 15 weird — according to Vulcan Post
- Najib Razak (Umno)
- Nawawi Ahmad (Umno)
- Dr S. Subramaniam (MIC)
- Mohamad Imran Abdul Hamid (PKR)
- Harussani Zakaria (Mufti Perak)
- Ahmad Maslan (Umno)
- Abdul Rahman Dahlan (Umno)
- Khairy Jamaluddin (Umno)
- Muhyiddin Yassin (Umno)
- Bung Mokhtar (Umno)
- Nazri Aziz (Umno)
- Raime Unggi (Umno)
- Idris Jusoh (Umno)
- Ismail Sabri Yaakob (Umno)
- Rosmah Mansor
Note that there is no Chinese nor any DAP leader ‘honoured’ by Anna Lee on the list she compiled above.
Pwincess remarked that strangely Aunty Rosmah is included in Ms Lee’s list of ‘Malaysian leaders’. The prime minister’s spouse may be a number of things but nonetheless she does not deserve to be on a list featuring 13 “politicians” (description contained in the url of the Vulcan Post article).
And nor are the wives of PMs and Presidents conventionally termed as “leaders”.
Pwincess pointed out that in this respect, only Betty Chew aka Mrs Lim Guan Eng – who was previously a DAP state assemblyman in Malacca and holding the Adun post when her Hubby Dearest became Penang chief minister in 2008 – would qualify in her own right.
The Chinese keep doing this kind of thing
It’s practically non-stop how the Chinese asyik kenakan the Malays and Muslims left, right and centre – either subtly or otherwise.
Among the names on the Vulcan Post‘s two lists totaling 25 mentions, there is not a single Chinese nor DAP politician. As if Kit Siang, Guan Eng, Tony Pua or Anthony Loke have never said anything bizarre or weird before meh.
With the Lims, the occasions are too numerous. Commenter grandmarquis is able to recollect one incident — “no rain, no flood” when Guan Eng tried to deflect the charge of neglect during an occurrence of flash flood in Penang.
Anthony Loke’s remarks on Islam are “bizarre” because following his party’s acrimonious fallout with PAS, the Seremban MP made a 180-degree turn on his earlier and politically expedient pro-hudud sentiments.
Or how about Tony Pua labeling Hadi Awang as “nyanyuk” or his diatribe against Singapore roving ambassador Bilahari Kausikan, including name-calling Singapore as the “mercenary prick” of this region?
BELOW: “Weird and bizarre” indeed … talking about dunno-who, dunno-where “injured & dead children”
Where is the sense of fairness among the Chinese?
Like Pwincess said, if the Vulcan Post had wanted to highlight foot-in-mouth politicians/leaders with some degree of fairness from both sides of the divide, then YB si Gemuk Soalan Mulut should have made the list rather than Rosmah Mansor.
Hannah Yeoh is after all the DAP Selangor vice chairman as well as Wanita DAP’s International Secretary.
And since Ms Lee of the Vulcan Post is compiling “bizarre”, surely Hannah Yeoh’s many sayings make the cut.
It is indeed “bizarre” that Hannah lost her appetite crying over Anwar in prison but has not lost any weight – see her viral tweet above.
This kind of behaviour from the Nicholas Cheng-type Gen Z is begging for retaliation but when what goes around comes back around like a boomerang, then the Chinese immediately whinge that they’re being oppressed and persecuted.
Bilahari Kausikan made a valid point about the young Chinese in Malaysia today.
