‘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: Shameful of Hadi to make Christianity a bogeyman shar.es/1hbgWy via @sharethis https://t.co/mdHSIYtKHD—
FMT News (@fmtoday) January 19, 2016
• 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
J-Star CEO Wong Chun Wai’s column on Jan 17 is a subtle but sly deception.
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.
20 thoughts on “Ali Tinju perlu lebih pintar sikit”
Hadi is being truthful when he said what he had to say and the truth always hurt.
The evangelistas are aggressively, religiously mongering going from door to door preaching and it is still happening in my residential area. Which religious body does that door to door? The Muslim? The Buddhist? The Hindus? The Sikh?
They don’t care and respect what I have hung in front of my main door to show my religious inclination. They insisted to come into my domain to preach to me. I have to “aggresively” ask them to leave as they had become very irritating. Actually I stop short of “fooking” them off.
You are right. and actually Hadi was just stating the truth.
As for MCA, I am more interested to see whether UMNO or more importantly Najib is going to be willing again to be stabbed by the ungrateful MCA. Najib seems unable to accept reality that it is time for UMNO to move on. There is no need to throw life line to MCA by allowing MCA to contest in malay areas.
Malays and other UMNO members are tired too. Which explains why BN lost in alor setar, Parit Yani(Johor). Had BN put UMNO to contest in these 2 areas, BN would have won most likely.
Let us relegate MCA to its deserving place : museum.
“Hadi is being truthful when he said what he had to say and the truth always hurt.”
Hadi wasn’t talking about the Evangelicals but rather the traditional Christians. Hadi is clearly a clueless idiot who has never left Malaysia by the looks of it. Europe is now secular and have rejected all religions, not just Christianity. In fact, western countries on the whole have embraced liberalism and secularism, and as a result have become a lot more tolerant and peaceful than the hypocritical God botherers.
Malaysia is a prime example of a nation made up of religious fanatics but is about as morally bankrupt as you will ever find. Religion has not improved the people here, it’s made them worse.
“The evangelistas are aggressively, religiously mongering going from door to door preaching and it is still happening in my residential area.”
Agreed. The door to door preaching is embarrassing and uncalled for.
yeah right. have sex without boundaries. child out of wedlock becomes a norm. children grow up being vindictive, irrespectful, spoiled and vulgar. divorce is a normal thing. I think I don’t-love-you-so-we-go-separate-ways. chidren grow as an adult and become disinterested in marriage. why marry when you can have casual sex anytime anywhere and with anyone? people like you mistake them as being ‘tolerant’. I would just say the whole society has screwed up making everyone so materialistic and individualistic.
kebelakangan ini sya perhatikan berberapa blogger menyiarkan artikel mereka begitu kerap sekali terutama mengenai isu yang membabitkan kepimpinan yg semakin songsang.
it is akin 2 a defence lawyer who has 2 defend his client who was caught red handed.
saya juga d maklumkan bahawa terdapat sekurang2 nya 3 kategori penulis :
1) yg d bayar setiap bulan olih ‘father Christmas,
2) yg d bayar berdasarkan jumlah artikel yg d siarkan,
3)yg tidak d bayar n menulis berlandaskan ‘conscience’.
katogeri k 3 lah yg akan bertahan n d hormati.
Kebelakangan ini, saya perhatikan beberapa commenter begitu kerap sekali meletakkan komen mereka di blog saya, terutama mengenai isu berhubung gerakan mahu jatuhkan PM yang nampak semakin terdesak.
The new frequent commenters include (1) and (2) who are Komtar cyber thugs like ‘zofreis’ – who in the Protun parlance would be termed “pemakan dedak” DAP.
An interesting development to see the Dapsters and the Protuns are now becoming kam cheng. Another pair of new, strange bedfellows.
I do not think the Dapster-Protun agitprop combo can last, and nor does it command much respect. Their objectives may be aligned for the moment – such as the Mukhriz cheerleading squad – but the centrifugal force is too strong.
I m not referring 2 d commentators which can easily b ignored by d blog owner.
I m referring 2 some of d blog owners who hv lost d favors of their paymasters bcos of ineffectiveness. they r now loitering wthin d cyberspace realm hoping 2 secure employment.

however if u write truthfully based on yr conscience, god willing, u wil get rewarded handsomely n respected by society at large.
kalau kita cuba nak’tegakkan benang basah’ n cuba menidakkan perkara yg ‘sudah terang lagi bersuluh’ maka masyarakat akan mengingati kita tanpa rasa hormat. d choice is ours.
re: “I m referring 2 some of d blog owners who hv lost d favors of their paymasters bcos of ineffectiveness. they r now loitering wthin d cyberspace realm hoping 2 secure employment.”
Oh I see. You’re talking about the former political blogger who’s now writing about movies, comics and food.
re: “that’s what happens when u r deemed not 2 achieve yr target. 2day they call it key performance index.(kpi)”
Okay, goddit. When the blogger is deemed not to have achieved his political KPI, he switches to easier topics like movies, comics and food.
Or is the ‘performance’ measured by the quality of his commenters, like say, if a blog is infested by Dapsters and dominated by haters (character assassins), then the box-office draw diminishes.
re: “however if u write truthfully based on yr conscience, god willing, u wil get rewarded handsomely n respected by society at large.”
I suppose a Malay man masquerading as an anon female blogger is not being truthful from the outset, eh?
re: “kalau kita cuba nak’tegakkan benang basah’ n cuba menidakkan perkara yg ‘sudah terang lagi bersuluh’ maka masyarakat akan mengingati kita tanpa rasa hormat.”
Quite true. Still pretending to be a woman, that one … but as long as the Protun agenda sedapkan telinga, some taksub readers don’t mind.
re: “d choice is ours”
The choice of reading material is yours. Nobody is putting a gun to anybody’s head to read.
I’m proTun but not ‘kam cheng’ with Dapsters, Dear Helen.
After that failed ‘pak-chu-cheng’, between DAP & PAS and since PAS had discarded all parasites, I would rather vote for PAS if it had nothing to do with tainted UMNO’s President.
I do not quite understand.
You say that the Chinese are aiming to take over Putrajaya.
You say that there are many outright Chinese-majority seats and seats where the Chinese have a majority and hence can influence the vote.
You say that 95% of the Chinese support Pakatan.
Yet by your own reckoning there are only a maximum of 45 seats which the Chinese can influence and win.
How would the Chinese, with 45 seats, take over Government?
UMNO, alone has nearly 90 seats.
Now that PAS is working with UMNO, that is another 20-odd seats, let us say PAS has 20 seats for ease of calculations.
So, the Malay Muslim voters alone control nearly (90 UMNO + 20 PAS) 110 seats.
I am still unable to understand how the Chinese with your “at least 45 seats” calculation, can take over Putrajaya against a Malay Muslim controlled 110 seats.
Where would the additional (110-45) Chinese controlled seats come from?
Remember that those 45 seats you mentioned already contain virtually all 95% of Chinese you have already counted, ok?
Unless, of cos, you are suggesting that even having 0.01% Chinese in the voter population can, somehow, mean a win for DAP.
Who’s the boss?
Who’s the boss?

So, what you are saying that with DAP controlling 37 parliamentary seats out of 222 AND 105 DUN seats out of about 580 (taking into account recent additions), DAP can run Malaysia any way they like.
AND, the other 185 (222-37) MPs and the Malays in those 185 seats will just sit there quietly and say nothing and do nothing.
I mean, ANYTHING the Malays can say or do is no point because DAP controls 37 Parliamentary seats and rule Putrajaya, right?
OK, I understand what you are trying to say now :)
Just clarifying what you have written :)
re: “So, what you are saying that with DAP controlling 37 parliamentary seats out of 222”
What I’m saying is DAP controls 51.4 percent of the formal opposition pact.
Pakatan Harapan has, between them, a total of 72 MPs (this is updated to discout Teluk Intan which DAP lost in a by-election as well as the addition of Kamarudin Jaafar who defected from PAS to PKR).
DAP has 37 MPs out of the 72. This means that DAP is 51.4 percent of the strength of the opposition.
Harapan = DAP, PKR & PAN while PAS is considered a Third Force.
Out of the 72 Harapan MPs:
Of the Harapan MPs
I’ve not included Zairil Khir Johari in either the Malay or non-Malay categories.
re: “AND 105 DUN seats out of about 580 (taking into account recent additions), DAP can run Malaysia any way they like”
DAP has more than double the number of DUN seats that PKR has. I’m unable to update latest on the Aduns now split between PAS and PAN. Quite clear that it’s DAP calling the shots.
re: “AND, the other 185 (222-37) MPs and the Malays in those 185 seats will just sit there quietly and say nothing and do nothing.”
There is the BN bloc and there is the opposition bloc. In Harapan, Malays are only 32 percent of the MPs, less than one-third.
re: “I mean, ANYTHING the Malays can say or do is no point because DAP controls 37 Parliamentary seats and rule Putrajaya, right?”
Do you suspect that PAN is under the DAP’s thumb? Many Malays think so.
re: “OK, I understand what you are trying to say now :) Just clarifying what you have written :)”
Two thirds of the Harapan MPs are non-Malays, non-Muslims.
A the current scenario, I don’t think PH will conquer Putrajaya. In fact, they may not even retain their existing MP seats. They will end up with less seats. Why? Pas will contest in some DAP mix seats. I am not sure how many. Let say 5 seats. In any three corner fights between BN-DAP-PAS, the oppo votes will split. BN will emerge winner. Same case for PAS mixed seats as DAP will join in the contest. Not to mention the seats currently held by Amanah. Again PAS will join in and create another 3 corner fights that will benefit BN.
PH parties together with PAS will end up having less seats post GE 14 compare to GE 13 due to 3 corner fights. I can agree if you say DAP is the dominant party in PH and able to dictate terms especially Pas is no longer in the equation. DAP is indeed powerful in PH states like Penang and Selangor.
But to say that DAP can control Parliament/Putrajaya is too far fetch. Stop selling the story ‘DAP will takeover Putrajaya’. Numerically, it is impossible for GE14.
re: “Numerically, it is impossible for GE14.”
Replying you in a posting. Will update url in this thread later.
intellectual discourse in this blog is slowly becoming scarce.in good faith i had implored all 2 b pro truth n there is no such thing as projib or protuns.
as a pekan born (najib’s constituency) I observe that things r slowly hotting up. once d orang asli can b convinced abt d short comings of their leader , it will spell trouble.
re: “intellectual discourse in this blog is slowly becoming scarce.”
OIC. And the Protun blog (that is allowed to become a platform for the character assassins) is the one hosting “intellectual discourse”?
I would propose an inverse correlation. The more that DAP operatives (who scream four-letter words) dominate a platform, the scarcer the intellectual input.
re: “in good faith i had implored all 2 b pro truth n there is no such thing as projib or protuns.”
As if the anti-Najibs have a monopoly on ‘truth’.
re: “as a pekan born (najib’s constituency) I observe that things r slowly hotting up. once d orang asli can b convinced abt d short comings of their leader , it will spell trouble.”
Najib won Pekan the last election with a 35,613-vote majority.
credibility is most important in whatever u do. I follow this blog b4 bcos of its well researched n sound arguments. well ! I care less abt other blogs . if they write untruths they will suffer d same fate (demise). netezens r rational people.
winning wth big majority is not n indication. in yr 2000 najib won only by hardly 200 votes. in 2004 najib himself appealed 2 our company 4 help. apart from financial contribution , d whole of our staff plus 10 cars were in pekan prior 2 d gen election 2 give our assistance.
najib also personally pleaded 2 tg asmawi (my x bro in law) 2 direct d orang asli thrui all d tok batins 2 vote 4 him.
we did not disappoint him.
so it may not b d same this time. what more when it was reported that rm 4 bil that najib claimed was 4 election purposes is frozen in a Singapore bank.
I m also eagerly waiting 4 somebody 2 publish or leak out d investigation papers that was submitted by macc 2 d ag.
re: “I follow this blog b4 bcos of its well researched n sound arguments.”
Thank you. It’s because I love data and do research that I choose the ruling party over the opposition. The facts favour the government. The oppo just fan hatred through inventing a lot of lies that fail to tally with real facts.
re: “well ! I care less abt other blogs. if they write untruths they will suffer d same fate (demise).”
Generally, I find the pro-government blogs to be more fair and honest. But the sites publishing sensational lies have an audience too.
re: “netezens r rational people.”
Dapsters are in perpetual hysteria. They believed that there were phantom voters in Subang Jaya, of all places, and blackouts in the polling stations.
re: “winning wth big majority is not n indication.”
I doubt that Najib’s 30k plus majority can be reversed to the point that he might lose his Pekan seat.
re: “in yr 2000 najib won only by hardly 200 votes.”
Wafer thin majority of 241 votes in year 1999. And he learned his lesson!
Hopefully he has also learned a same lesson from tsunami 2013.
re: “in 2004 najib himself appealed 2 our company 4 help. apart from financial contribution , d whole of our staff plus 10 cars were in pekan prior 2 d gen election 2 give our assistance.”
Good to hear. He was reeling from the close shave in 1999, and must have been making extra sure that he did not suffer another such a scare in 2004.
re: “najib also personally pleaded 2 tg asmawi (my x bro in law) 2 direct d orang asli thrui all d tok batins 2 vote 4 him.”
This is similarly the reason why I believe Najib is the most appropriate Umno leader to lead BN into GE14. He was the one hit in the face by the Chinese tsunami, same as he was given the almost knockout punch in the 1999 election.
Going through such near-death encounters – if you manage to survive them – makes you tougher and more prepared. And the person coming from the brink of defeat has more tactics up his sleeve because he’s been thrown into the deep end.
Similarly, the five percent Chinese have a vastly different political experience from the 95 percent. This further reinforces our tendency to think and look at things differently.
re: “what more when it was reported that rm 4 bil that najib claimed was 4 election purposes is frozen in a Singapore bank.”
Datuk, the DAP is dajjal. Dajjal is the arch deceiver.
re: “I m also eagerly waiting 4 somebody 2 publish or leak out d investigation papers that was submitted by macc 2 d ag.”
Sarawak Report recently published what it claimed was a leak, and saying that MACC was recommending that at least 37 charges be preferred against Najib. MACC has come out to say that SR was lying.
Yesterday the anti-Najib blogs were circulating the story that bil makan malam rumah Perdana Menteri RM19,284 sehari. The Projib blogs say that’s another lie, http://harapan-esok.blogspot.my/2016/01/menate-nafi-sediakan-makanan-untuk.html
People who keep churning out lies are a menace.
even though I try 2 b bipartisan, I always try 2 give najib d benefit of my doubts.
I spent almost 35 yrs as a civil servant at various levels. thru d years I hv developed certain skills in determining whether one is telling white lies, half truths or plain bluffing.
najib’s reaction so far on all d accusations hv been most disappointing. I hv now come 2 my own conclusion that may b wth d influence of his inner most circles, he began 2 use monies which I reckon he knows all along is wrong. hence I cannot b bipartisan anymore.
I hv a lot 2 share wth d public abt tun razak, d son n rosmah. I may just do that when d time comes. in d mean time I pray 2 Allah swt that common sense wil prevail n najib catches d bull by d horn n start governing by example. if he has done some mistakes just admit it n face d consequences.
if found 2 b guilty,let d law n public decide whether he deserves a right royal pardon. for now, he has lost one loyal supporter.
