‘Shut your gap’ was Ali Tinju’s warning to MCA leaders last month in the wake of yet another flap over the sale of mobile phones gone awry.
“Sekolahkan kaum kamu dulu. Bangsa kamu adalah penipu,” Mohd Ali Baharom was quoted as saying when contacted by Malay Mail on Dec 22.
“Adakah pemimpin MCA tidak ada kerja lain menyalahkan kaum lain sedangkan kaum kamu buat hal, kurang ajar dan menipu?”
“Adakah pemimpin MCA mempertahankan kaum mereka sendiri yang menipu, peras ugut, takutkan rakyat?” asked Ali Tinju, according to the article by ProjekMMO reporter Hasbullah Awang Chik.
Ali Tinju kepada MCA: Keluar BN, bersatu dengan DAP
Mohd Ali Baharom, nicknamed Ali Tinju, is the face of the red rally.
He was commenting to MMO on the Dec 20 assault (video here) in Kota Raya shopping complex. There were fears at the time of a repeat of the mini riot earlier at Low Yat Plaza.
Chiding the MCA to ‘sedar diri’, Ali Tinju challenged, “Kalau MCA tidak pandai jaga kaum, lebih baik keluar daripada BN. Bersatulah dengan DAP”.
Ali Tinju’s sound advice about the MCA should be heeded.
MCA is the owner of the country’s most profitable media. The behaviour of the J-Star Nest of Evangelistas is nothing short of sabotage — see, ‘Little hand grenades exploding in the house‘.
MCA ganging up with evangelistas against Hadi Awang
Last week, the PAS president had cautioned in his Friday sermon that the sneaky subterfuge practised by Christian missionaries was “a dangerous matter”.
MCA reacted to Hadi Awang like a clowder of cats on a hot tin roof.
• MCA president Liow Tiong Lai called Hadi’s statement “extremist”, “dangerous and irresponsible”, “lopsided and provocative”, reflecting “narrow-minded thought” (see his press conference video) as well as showing “complete ignorance”.
At the same time, Liow said that MCA strongly upholds the right of evangelists to preach.
• Meanwhile, vice president Chew Mei Fun slammed “hardliner” Hadi for what she called “yet another inflammatory accusation aimed at sowing distrust against Christians in Malaysia”.
• MCA Publicity Bureau chairman Chai Kim Sen accused Hadi of “using the Christian community as his convenient bayonet practice”. Chai also alleged that Hadi had made the Christian “his own imagined and manufactured-enemy”.

• MCA Religious Harmony Bureau chairman Ti Lian Ker described Hadi’s reminder as a “verbal assault against Christians”, adding it is “indeed sad and shameful for PAS” that its party president had done so.
Ti said Hadi’s “singling out the Christians … is uncalled for” and alleged that he was not only pitching the evangelists as a “bogeyman” but also “pitting the Muslim masses against the Christians”.
• MCA Youth chief Chong Sin Woon called Hadi’s observation as PAS’s “latest slur” whereby the parti Islam president had shown “his extremist side”.
Chong, who is the Deputy Education Minister, queried whether Hadi’s faith is “so weak that he assumes that the hundreds of mission schools … have resulted in Muslims apostacising”.
Ali Tinju is right. There is little difference between the MCA and the DAP.
MCA muscling to be co-champions of the evangelistas
Ali Tinju believes that Chinese vendors are “penipu” with regard to commercial transactions. Hadi Awang believes that Christian missionaries are enticing vulnerable individuals through dubious means.
In the MCA tango above on behalf of the proselytisers, it is pertinent to ask (borrowing Ali Tinju’s phraseology):
“Adakah pemimpin MCA tidak ada kerja selain menyalahkan penganut agama lain sedangkan kaum kamu yang giat mendakwah itu mahu buat hal, kurang ajar dan menipu?”
MCA is quick to train its guns on PAS whereas keeping silent as a lamb to all that the DAP evangelistas have been doing.
Cukup meluat tengok kerenah MCA nih.
Almost all of MCA’s seats in Parliament and the state assemblies are in Malay-majority areas, as Ali Tinju has rightly pointed out.
MCA duduk pun kerusi percuma bukan oleh puak Kristian tetapi atas ehsan orang Melayu.
MCA and its media group have chosen their side
MCA is siding with the pandai putar-belit bullies.
MCA has elected to attack Hadi Awang and for the most part bash the Muslims over contentious issues such as proselytization and Islamic sensitivities and taboos.
MCA has shown no indication that it is willing to ‘sekolahkan kaum ultra kiasunya sendiri dulu’.
MCA has lost the support of 95 percent of the Chinese community while the remaining five percent pro-establishment Chinese feel that MCA is more of a bane than a boon.
We, the five percent Chinese, have long been left to our own devices and to fend for ourselves while MCA prefers to take up the cudgels for the Dapster hardcore and the evangelistas.
MCA is of no use or benefit even to us Chinese BN voters.
Leaving their shit all over the floor
Calvin Sankaran commented @ 201,6/01/22 at 1:00 pm,
“Oh my Helen, you seemed to be a Dapster Magnet these days. I can imagine the Red Beanies busy strategizing on how to attack you at the Komtar’s 28th Floor. I wouldn’t even be surprised if they hang your picture with ‘target’ painted on the head. Guess you must be the Enemy Numero Uno these days.”
Yup, the Komtar troopers have been having verbal diarrhoea spitting venom in my blog ever since they were emboldened by the Protuns.
Calvin Sankaran is also right to point out @ 2016/01/22 at 1:31 pm to the bullies,
“BTW, a little piece of advice. Please do away with personal insults to the blog owner. Don’t visit people house and then leave with your excrement all over the floor.
Another commenter Equalizer made a note 2016/01/23 at 2:27 am on the recent spike in cybertrooper harassment,
“Helen, how you answer and your opinions, will be twisted by the Komtar groups of DAP dogs and now supported by the Protuns. So sad, Protuns had become Pro-DAP dogs.”
It is true that the sneaky bastards excel in tipu and putar-belit.
They’re a pack of hyenas that will keep on twisting and twisting, spinning lies and creating straw men as well as putting words in your mouth. So much so that it’s quite pointless to engage that kind of people.
BN Strategic Communications Director Rahman Dahlan, as one example, has resorted to filing a defamation suit against Malaysiakini for sneakily manipulating his words.
It’s understandable for the Malay community to feel besieged. After all, they’re confronted with one kind of people whose jaw-dropping behaviour leaves you simply speechless.
ABOVE: Chun Wai with Star Media Group chairman Fu Ah Kiow, who is an MCA man
Uber evangelista and his sleight of hand
Chun Wai tries very hard to lull Najib into complacency by mirroring the DAP line that the “demographic reality in Malaysia is that the Malays will never lose their grip on political power and Umno will remain to strengthen that hold”.
He parrots Kit Siang, saying, “There are only 22 Chinese-majority seats or merely 13%” — which is not exactly true.
FACT: There are 22 Chinese-majority Parliament seats in the peninsula but there are additionally eight more in Sabah and Sarawak.
Altogether there are 14 percent (13.51%) absolute Chinese-majority seats in Parliament. Nonetheless, all in, there are at least 45 seats where Chinese voters are the majority although not above the 50 percent mark.
e.g. Taiping has 47.9 percent Chinese voters, 37.1 percent Malay and 13.5 percent Indian voters, and hence it has a Chinese majority (more than either Malay or Indian voters)
Chun Wai also attempts to disarm Malays with the deflective claim, “even if every Chinese in Malaysia voted for the DAP, they can never make the party rule Malaysia”.
He swears, “Malay politicians who create the fear that the Chinese will rule Malaysia via the DAP are also talking rubbish, creating a scenario that will never take place”.
“Against this backdrop, the DAP must surely realise that it will never be able to win Malay votes on its own,” cries Chun Wai. (‘The gentleman doth protest too much’ in trying to allay Malay fears.)
DAP may not be able to win Malay votes on its own but nowadays it does get a little help from a new ‘friend’ (more precisely, the enemy of its enemy) — the Protuns.
Chun Wai collects his paycheque from an MCA-owned company but who is he speaking for? It is not MCA that is trying to grab federal power.
Ali Tinju is too optimistic in hoping that MCA will be able to school the ethnic community which the party purports to represent. The 95 percent Chinese support for the opposition is a signal that there is no middle ground left.
Chun Wai’s column was titled ‘Winning not one but all the races’. He’s obviously bluffing to suggest that the BN can win (back) the Chinese.
Don’t waste any more breath appealing to MCA and its Nest of Evangelistas. Ali Tinju is better off advising Umno to sekolahkan kaum Melayu to be less gullible.
