“Umno has since swung further to the right and its supporters have become increasingly anti-Chinese, as shown during the Sept 16 red shirt rally,” said a Malaysiakini article yesterday headlined ‘Analyst: Chinese bogeymen may scare Malays into Najib’s hands‘.
Malaysiakini ascribes the increasingly anti-Chinese sentiments in our country to Umno supporters and implies that Himpunan Merah is a manifestation of the Malay party’s swing to the far right.
Not entirely true.
Penang Institute is the voice of DAP
Malaysiakini is merely channeling the propaganda by Guan Eng’s think-tank.
The analyst (pix above, wearing ‘Bersih’ headband) interviewed is, after all, attached to the Penang Institute.
And the institute is headed by DAP’s Zairil-Aku-Melayu as the organization’s CEO and DAP’s Ong Kian Ming – who was previously with MCA and Gerakan – as its general manager.
Thus the pro-oppo news portal had interviewed an analyst who, in fact, heads the DAP institute’s political desk. Therefore, analyst Wong Chin Huat’s views are clearly DAP views.

Not just Umno supporters alone who are spooked
There are anti-Chinese sentiments in many places where there is no Umno.
- 13-15 May 2014 — anti-Chinese riots in Hanoi, Vietnam
- ‘Anti-Chinese sentiment on rise in Myanmar’ (China Dialogue, 13 May 2014); Going back in history, a major anti-Chinese riot occurred in Burmese capital Rangoon on 26 June 1967
- 13-15 May 1998 — anti-Chinese riots in Jakarta, Indonesia
- 89.0 percent of Japanese have “unfavourable” view of China — Pew Research Center survey, 23 June 2015
70.5 percent of Koreans feel “repulsion” if China were to become the continent’s leader — East Asia Institute survey, Oct 2012
- In the Philippines, there are nationwide campaigns to boycott Chinese products
It is not only pro-establishment Malays who are reacting to the Chinese but elsewhere around the world, the natives have come into conflict with this ethnic minority and China expats.
There is no middle ground with the neo-Zionists
Malaysiakini characterized the Sept 16 red shirt rally as an Umno show.
Azmi Arshad – pix above – may correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t believe he’s Umno.
Allow me to recap a blog entry I posted two days ago under the title ‘Peringatan: Merah boleh berhimpun lagi‘. I’d linked a Facebook entry by Azmi on ‘Pertahankan Islam’ ( saying:
- “Due to recent stepped up attacks on Islam, Islamic institutions, Islamic scholars and Muslims, I hope we can unite in countering the aggressors, liars and slanderers on their Facebook pages and media portals.”
- “Now is the time to put politics aside. Muslims can indeed unite as proven in the Himpunan Merah / Red Rally and unpleasant Low Yat incident.”
- “The reality is that, unlike between ourselves [Sunni Muslims], there is no middle ground with the Islamophobes and ultra liberals.”
- “Our primary targets are pages of news portals (MMO, The Heat, Mkini, TMI etc) and popular ultra liberals whose pages are public. Possibly also on walls of public figures.”
Azmi does not call for unity in the name of Umno. His call to unity is based on defending Islam from the enemies of the faith. He cites Himpunan Merah as one example of Muslim unity.
Sept 16’s red shirts were a direct response to Aug 30’s aggressive yellow shirts.
DAP’s strategy of stoking hatred for Najib
“But all other seats may depend on if the Malays are more angry with Najib or more ‘fearful’ of the Chinese bogeymen,” added Chin Huat.
What the analyst said about the Malays being “angry with Najib” factor is revealing of his party’s strategy to continually stoke hatred for the Umno president.
The crux of DAP’s politics is hatred. Their evangelista politicians are masters at inciting anger and instigating resentment through fitnah, bohong, tipu dan putar-belit … hypocritically couched in ‘love’ words.
Gelombang Merah bagi menentang puak neo-Zionis
The DAP evangelistas are closest in relation to neo-Zionists due to their shared traits of viciousness and gratuitous cruelty.
In Chin Huat’s analysis of GE14, he is hopeful that “PAS and other third forces will be marginalised”.
“Harapan may stand a good chance of taking Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca, and Johor, other than retaining Penang and Selangor, even if it still fails to capture Putrajaya,” he predicted rather ambitiously.
Like Chin Huat had revealed to Malaysiakini, the opposition is banking on Malay anger against Najib outweighing Malay fear of the Chinese taking control of the federal government.
DAP’s method contains no positive value to garner votes through good alternative policies. Instead it employs only negativity by piling on hate and revulsion to turn Malays away from the ruling party.
The greater the DAP’s success in demonizing Najib and Umno, the more urgent the need for Malay-Muslim unity to withstand the Dapster-evangelista assault.
PAS should, by now, be able to see why they must climb on board the ‘Perpaduan’ bandwagon. Umno is not and has never been an enemy of Islam.
For spiritual guidance, the parti Islam should look to the Quran that has forewarned Muslims who the enemies of the religion are.
