Hannah deserves honour of pushing first yellow trolley

This season, expect the DAP evangelistas to continue looking down on the suckers as low class “creatures”.

Hannah xmas greeting

Yup, Hannah Yeoh actually called Najib Razak a “creature“.

I  too have been called a mere “thing” by those people. They do not see their enemies as being human. In other words, they dehumanize us by reducing us to the level of jijik creature, thing, lembu.

I launched this blog in July 2011. From Day One, I’ve been saying that the Christian evangelism which is driving DAP politics is going to damn Malaysian Chinese as outcasts.

My track record proves that I’ve been consistently telling readers this.


I had earlier ‘booked’ this cyber real estate (url/address) in December 2008 but uploaded nothing here between then and mid-2011.

The first helenang.wordpress.com article on 28 July 2011 is titled ‘Tony Yew and Chan Lilian duke it out’. It is a supplement to my letter-to-the-editor published in Malaysiakini the same day headlined ‘Behind the Tony Yew-Chan Lilian spat‘.

Tony is/was a friend of Haris Ibrahim, and later of Rocky Bru while Lilian is Guan Eng’s Special Officer.

How DAP got 95 percent Chinese to be anti-government

As you can see, over the past five years (including my last months as Malaysiakini columnist before my column got axed), my focus has been consistently on how the evangelistas have taken over the DAP.

And consequently, how the DAP has taken control of the Chinese community.

On 16 Aug 2011, I first noted the number of Hannah Yeoh’s Twitter followers (screenshot below). Back then, she had 29,440 twits.

16 Ogos 2011

Today her fan base has quadrupled. There are now 122,000 twits following @hannahyeoh – Twitter profile below, and she must remember to thank The J-Star for actively promoting her.

Have a look what Hannah retweeted only just a while ago, “The Bible is not a script for a funeral service. It is the record of God bringing life where we expected to find death”. She is an evangelista to the very core.

Hannah Twitter Dec 2015

The face of evangelism

The Chinese are delusional to pretend that there are no consequences to be suffered. That there will be no reaction to their actions.

The 95 percent anti-establishment slant manifests itself in the kind of bias you get, for example, in the Vulcan Post (a tech-lifestyle news portal) where the editors and writers are Chinese.

Writing in Vulcan Post, Jean Khoo and Anna Lee collated a Hall of Shame slagging Malaysian politicians and leaders – refer the two files below.

  • 2014: Vulcan Post‘s Top 10 bizarre things said by Malaysian leaders (PDF file)
  • 2015: Vulcan Post‘s Top 15 weird things said by Malaysian leaders (PDF file)

Among the 25 mentions compiled by Ms Khoo and Ms Lee collectively, 24 of the names are Malay/Muslim with one Indian, i.e. the hapless MIC president, making the roll call.

Hannah Yeoh Ugly Pendatang

In the assessment of Vulcan Post, no Chinese politician and not a single DAP leader had ever put their foot in the mouth. Only Umno and Isma personalities, mostly, are “weird” and “bizarre” (code words for ‘moron’ – see Kit Siang’s jibe below).

The Gen Z, such as Ms Khoo and Ms Lee above as well as The J-Star‘s Christian reporter Nicholas Cheng, are inheritors of the Dapster family legacy.

All the tudungs in the world cannot hide the hypocrisy

There has been push-back against the Dapster-evangelistas. The Red Rally was one example of reaction to Chinese-Christian action, i.e. Bersih 4.0 that was Chinese-dominated and Church-galvanized.

The Malays have also very recently opened their own bumiputera tech mall in the aftermath of the Lowyat mini riot.

Then there is the proposal for supermarket trolleys be segregated into halal and haram. Muslim shoppers will push – say green – trolleys while non-Muslim shoppers will push yellow trolleys in which they can put their liquor and pork purchases.

Hannah Yeoh pergi ke masjid untuk ma

Hannah Yeoh stuffing her mouth inside the mosque

No rapprochement possible

DAP’s politics of hate has polarized Muslims, non-Muslims and divided Malays, non-Malays beyond any hope for reconciliation. And the evangelistas dare accuse Umno of being “divisive”.

Hannah Yeoh denies that she is a Chinese. She filled in a borang rasmi (application for her daughter’s birth cert) stating her own race as ‘Anak Malaysia’ too.

If the trolley regulation is implemented, what colour trolley do you reckon Hannah Yeoh ought to be pushing?

    Great Pretenders are great manipulators. They will masquerade like saints full of love to infiltrate the weakness in you and after that suck you high and dry. Scumbags like the Nigerian internet cheats used this method in their communications with their victims through the net. Even highly educated people are cheated this way not to mention the everyday people. This is MANIPULATIVE BRAIN WASHING (MBW) and it is a soft but sly approach which is very effective and evil if misused.

    The evangelistas and other extreme religious groups are trained and indoctrinated to use MBW. The ISIS used a very forceful and fearful propanganda approach but the effect is the same as MBW. ALL CLAIMED FOR LOVE, FOR LOVE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.

    “She is an evangelista to the very core.”

    Ask the evagenlistas to write down how many years of Christian experience they have? Having 5-15 years Christian experience does not qualify one to be an expert of Christianity.

    “From Day One, I’ve been saying that the Christian evangelism which is driving DAP politics is going to damn Malaysian Chinese as outcasts.”

    The evangelistas have hijacked the old Christians. The native Christians like the Iban, Portuguese etc having been Christians for generations and no a sound on the Allah issue. It is the Chinese Novice Christians that make the loudest noise over the Allah issue. The old native Christians have been reading the Bible from papa to grand pa to great grand papa and no controversy. For the Chinese, reading the Bible for 5 -15 years makes them experts to dictate the direction of Christianity in Malaysia and how the ownership of the Bible in a language they cannot understand (i.e. Malay) an issue of great urgency.

        DAP must have got an impressive number of interns working under them to win hearts and minds, maybe they came from those democracy schools I heard about. Perhaps they are being utilized in Sabah and Sarawak as well in the remote regions.
        We would find out their results in those 2 state elections.

        I know that the leaders under DAP’s thumb in PAS failed spectacularly in party elections making them run off and form another party, but have no idea if their supporters went along with them.

    Perhaps a dose of the Donald Trump fan club will teach the Chinese a lesson. We need a Malay Donald Trump clone here which hates “pendatangs” Those who migrate (curse the country and destroy their passport) will not be allowed back tujuh keturunan here. Those who cannot speak the local language is an immigrant from don’t know where. At the rate the DAPsters are pushing UMNO and PAS, the birth and rise of the Malay Donald Trump will be soon.

    The Australian Donald Trump would be one non Caucasian hater (ala Pauline Hanson) who would why are jobs lost to yellows. At the rate of Asian migration, the Trumps and Hansons clones will come.

    I apologise for the immature Christians who spoke their mind but without love. I also apologise for DAP ( I am not a member )who have hurt others in their quest for a better Malaysia. You see Christians can only speak out but it is God the Spirit who convicts hearts and transforms minds. You have therefore to wait on God before you speak otherwise He wont back you up.

    They are speaking out what they see – the double standards that occur daily all around us here in Malaysia.

    Truth is by their fruits we shall know all politicians be they DAP, MCA or BN.
    But by the same token, it is quite safe to say that politicians live by their wits and by their spins.
    Many consider it OK to spin as stop gap measures. But you may have temporary reprieve for Kennedy said some years ago,you can bluff some people some of the time, many people all the time, but you can’t bluff all people all the time. And before your life is through we have to consider facing eternity.
    God has instituted laws to govern nature, the universe and us. The law of sowing and reaping. If I plant apple seeds I will expect ( even if I do not believe this law ) to harvest apples. If I plant papaya seeds and not in a million years will I expect to harvest apples. It just is not natural. It is against the law of the Spirit.
    I read in the Bible that as long as earth remains, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will not cease.
    Many of us say they have no faith in the Bible. But i tell you – unconsciously you are exercising faith in what the Bible says – night and day will never cease.Many who are reading this will go to bed expecting to wake up in the morning. That is faith because for many it will be their final night before they awaken in eternity.I

    So if you spin you will receive spin. If you sow apples you will harvest apples.If you sow lies and malice,that is exactly what you will harvest. Newton discovered that and they call it Newton’s Law – every action has an exact and opposite reaction. I therefore do not need to know who is doing right or wrong. Eventually they shall reap what they sow.
    Meanwhile I advise all of us to walk softly and consider our next step. The future depends on what we are now practising. What goes around will definitely come around. If you sow to the wind, you shall reap the whirlwind.

      re: “They are speaking out what they see – the double standards that occur daily all around us here in Malaysia.”

      I’m aware that Chinese are confronted by road blocks and glass ceilings and policies that discriminate against us. But we need to stop and evaluate our own share of the blame for the state of things – like our refusal to learn or speak the national language (just as one clear and straightforward example).

      The Chinese community in Malaysia is worse in comparison with the Muslim community in Europe in terms of refusing to integrate.

      We all (race & religion minorities) naturally want to make things better but the evangelistas are making things a lot worse. Just put aside the grievances, polemics and rhetoric for a minute and just examine the outcome. The proposal for green vs yellow shopping trolleys is one example.

      The latest, https://www.malaysiakini.com/news/322978

      Nelson Mandela when he became President of South Africa was able to heal his country because he took a leap of faith.

      The Dapster-evangelistas are characterized by their ultra kiasuness. For Malaysia to become whole, there is a need to be like Mandela – let go the grudges. This is something beyond the DAP.

      From the behaviour of Kit Siang and Guan Eng, it’s clear that they’re incapable of overcoming their deep resentment and the vengeance they harbour for the punishments (ISA, jail) that the state had meted out to them.

      And Hannah Yeoh is inciting new grudges and resentments from the Christian angle which the Chinese community did not express before.

      Malays claim that May 13 was sparked because of the insults and provocations hurled by the Chinese street protesters on May 12.

      The way in which the Born Again Christians can insult, mock and show their utmost contempt for other people is far more provocative than anything ever uttered in the month of May, 1969.

    Re: Green trolleys.

    Do Muslims welcome the ‘green trolley’ initiative?

    If Muslims think it’s a good idea to segregate trolleys (among other things) from non-Muslims, then it is the preference of the said community.

    The path to religious conservatism for anyone, in this context, Muslims, surely has to emit from their own will and not assumed to be dependant on external push factors in the form of oppositions or other faiths.

        Good point.

        Currently the trolley segregation are brought up by Putrajaya. I don’t reckon Putrajaya to be free of certain political agenda nor are they the spokesperson for all Muslims.

        Thus my curiosity. If Muslims in general are in agreement with the segregation, then this has to be seen as the will of the community.

        If not, then it is another politically motivated ploy to further isolate the Muslims from the non-Muslims.

        It will be good to have feedbacks from Muslims regarding the trolley question.

          Some people, since they do not really speak the local language, are totally living in their own made-up Malaysian world. They do not feel the need to respect the local custom or even sometimes the Constitution.

            Insensitive souls come in all race and creed. Let’s agree everyone has their share of falling victim to insensitivity. Not just the Malays.

            Let’s not attribute sheer stupidity with malice and willful intent to offend.

              Pls allow me to join your conversation…

              re: “just because certain quarters don’t speak fluent BM they are impervious to Malay sentiments”

              With reference to the “certain quarters”, well, if they don’t speak “fluent” BM – but let’s put the level just at ‘competent’ as fluency appears too much to ask – how do you expect them to communicate with native speakers who are equally incompetent in the Chinese language (and English too)?

              re: “Let’s not attribute sheer stupidity with malice and willful intent to offend.”

              I can agree that insensitivity need not necessarily emanate from any “malice and willful intent to offend”.

              Nonetheless, how to overcome the “sheer stupidity” if these certain quarters do not even possess the basic ‘tool’, i.e. ability to communicate meaningfully so that they can get an inkling of what is offensive to The Other?

              Tell me, in which other country of the world do the citizens refuse to speak that country’s national language/lingua franca/native tongue, and then proceed to cook up a lot of inventive excuses for their adamant refusal?

                I’ll get to this at the end.

                Quote: “Nonetheless, how to overcome the “sheer stupidity” if these certain quarters do not even possess the basic ‘tool’, i.e. ability to communicate meaningfully so that they can get an inkling of what is offensive to The Other? “

                Everyone has their encounter with stupid, or maybe more aptly put, insensitive people. Empathy has little to do with linguistic competency..

                Going back to the core argument about dogs in fast-food outlets and supermarket trolleys, these have nothing to do with empathy , sensitivity or linguistic competency.

                Quite plainly, rules had been breached, and these people are attempting to push the boundaries to see how far they can get away with bending the rules. The onus is on the establishment to enforce their rules. Kick them out. Do something.

                To measure the general consensus of Malaysians, just look at the fb comments. Those animal owners are being dissed on all front. To be dead honest, these cases are the exception and not the norm.

                Quote: “Tell me, in which other country of the world do the citizens refuse to speak that country’s national language/lingua franca/native tongue, and then proceed to cook up a lot of inventive excuses for their adamant refusal?”

                We’ve been over this before. Firstly, it is my belief all Malaysians should be conversant in BM.

                Those that can’t speak fluently? (not talking about those who can speak BM but prefer not to)

                This is my take.

                Someone not able to speak the national language are losing out . They are disadvantaged compared to their BM speaking peers and their self-esteem cannot be all good when they can’t even order a burger without holding up the line. And forget about the terror of going to governmental agencies…

                Helen and Malays on this blog see these people as a group of defiant rebels fighting for their Chinese rights and a hindrance to national unity.

                Fact is, it is not Chinese tradition to hope their offsprings ti be handicapped in life. No Chinese are smug because they cannot speak BM.

                Then why not learn BM?

                This is a legit question. Unfortunately it is one I cannot offer an adequate answer that can satisfy the different circumstances covered.

                IMHO I suspect the answer is along the line people complaining if they can do it all over again, they would have worked harder, work less, finish school, get a degree, switched jobs, spend more time with loved ones etc etc. Regrets that still has room for certain recourse but somehow left to remain as life’s lamentations.

                There is no need to clamour for governmental intervention to punish these people, society and life will ultimately be the arbiter and judge on their plight.

                  While there are the ‘No dogs/pets allowed’ sign in some establishments, I haven’t seen any that specifically bars dogs from trolleys. Perhaps now they’ll make a new rule particularly to ban dogs from trolleys.

                  re: “To be dead honest, these cases are the exception and not the norm.”

                  Of course cases like this are the exception. Just like Alvin Tan is an exception and not the norm. But nonetheless, I’ve seen FB comments lauding him for being gutsy enough to do what the Facebookers would themselves like to do but don’t dare. Why else do you think he had 88,000 FB fans?

                  re: “No Chinese are smug because they cannot speak BM.”

                  You’re wrong there. Plenty of online comments dissing BM as a “useless” language.

                  re: “Regrets that still has room for certain recourse but somehow left to remain as life’s lamentations.”

                  If they regret that they’ve never had the ‘chance’ (for whatever reasons) to gain a command of the language – that’s one thing. But there are many who simply spit on the national language.

                  re: “There is no need to clamour for governmental intervention to punish these people, society and life will ultimately be the arbiter and judge on their plight.”

                  I’ve already foretold that they will be made outcasts. The yellow trolley proposal is just the beginning.

                      I can agree with your comment.

                      But as I’ve said before, the crux of the matter is: Are the evangelistas willing to make peace with Islam? If not, then the tensions will continue simmering under the surface until the lid eventually blows off.

                      re: “I’ve no problem with people voicing their opinion. You don’t have to agree with them.”

                      Their opinion that BM is “useless” is a problematic point of view and yet they staunchly deny that they’re being unpatriotic.

                      The Thai language is not used outside of Thailand. Neither is Korean used outside of Korea, etc.

                      If one goes along with their illogic in claiming that BM is not useful anywhere outside Malaysia, then Finnish, Swedish, Danish, whatever (most) languages are not spoken outside their home countries either. Nonetheless, sovereign nation states do not repudiate their mother tongue.

              “just because certain quarters don’t speak fluent BM they are impervious to Malay sentiments.”

              It’s not just about Malay sentiments. It’s about being Malaysian. When they have a language barrier how will they do feel the sense of fellowship or esprit de corps with other Malaysians?

              If they can ignore something as important and basic as language, then isn’t easier to ignore other sentiments? Do they even have Malaysian sentiments?

              You wrote “It would not be a big issue had the shop personnel/management step up”, but if you had read the incidents involving pets, you would know that the personnel who confronted them were themselves abused by the pet owners.

              Let’s face it Helen asked a valid question “which other country of the world do the citizens refuse to speak that country’s national language/lingua franca/native tongue”. It’s a question that has been asked again and again by the majority.

                Nope.

                Who exactly are the ‘other Malaysians’ we are talking about that have grouses about the national language not spoken by the Chinese?

                Not trying to be racial. it’s all precisely about the Malays because they are the majority and the government.

                Sense of fellowship? Malaysian sentiments? Unity?

                What about governmental policies that are seen blatantly one sided?

                But of course in view of the fact UMNO has Malay support, it does not need to pander to the Chinese either. In the past, the Chinese were easy. UMNO/MCA need not deliver much. Just the very thought of PAS in power is enough to strike terror in the Chinese mind to vote for BN.

                What about religious conservatism?

                Oh no, don’t pin it on DAP. It started with En Anwar’s stint as Education Minister and his Islamic fundamentalism. But still, it is not as if he (Anwar) can steer the conservatism path without UMNO’s compliance.

                No, don’t tell me religion plays no part in segregating the Muslims and the non-Muslims. And since in Malaysia all Malays are by default Muslims, that would mean Malays/Muslims vs lain lain.

                I don’t profess to have all the answers. I am of the view the racial wedge is due to policies that are seen overly one sided, the Chinese community are left to fend for itself. In the process, inadvertently create a self sufficient vacuum that is sizeable enough to accommodate its own people from the need of assimilation to survive.

                Is this good? Of course not.

                If it is any consolation, as I’ve written previously, these people who can’t speak BM are not doing it because they are trying to make some political statement nor advocating some ketuanan Cina thing. These are people who will probably end up on the losing end in face of meritocracy and global competitiveness.

                  1. Language. This is basic to any nation. Other Malaysians, as in Indians, Dayak, Kadazan, Iban, Senoi etc all have their own languages and yet most if not all can speak Malay to some degree to be understood. Who says other Malaysians are not upset with the Chinese for not knowing the national language? I’ve heard an Indian doctor at the government hospital muttering “baru datang ke?” after a Chinese patient.

                  2. “But of course in view of the fact UMNO has Malay support, it does not need to pander to the Chinese either.” But they do pander. Look at Najib declaring scholarships on merit basis when he took over. Look at Najib giving millions of aid to Chinese school when there is no requirement to do so.

                  3. “What about religious conservatism?” What about it? The Malays have always been conservative and have always lean towards Islam. Even the most liberal among the Malays would be upset if someone insinuates that he is less of a Muslim. Something you need to ponder, the more conservative a Muslim is the more he will defend the basic rights of non-Muslims. But when the Dap evangelists started to use religion against the Malays, that’s when all these tension started.

                  I don’t profess to know the answers as well. You think the people who chose not speak BM will lose out. However, I feel that with the Dap as their guiding hand, we may all end up losers.

    Hannah was probably in preacher mode when she used the word creature. Creatures seem to be a common word to refer to all creations in their prayers or hymn.

    When Hannah speaks we are never sure whether she is speaking as a Speaker, a member of the State Legislative Assembly, a servant of God, a wife or mother. But she’s probably most comfortable in preacher mode.

    Eh, preacher pakai baju tradisional ya?

      The tudung-wearing girls sitting in the second and third rows are her Chinese interns.

      You can see a frontal shot of her tazkirah ‘congregation’ here.

      When she speaks you can be sure she speaks in a language crooks are familiar with. She reminds me of a character in X Men, Mystique l o l !
