Gerakan party’s university hosting Guan Eng think-tank event
MCA has a university — Utar.
One of its lecturers previously was Chong Zhemin. Today Chong is DAP Perak’s Economic Development bureau chief.
How many more Chongs are there still in Utar actively moulding the young minds?

What is going on in Gerakan?!
BN party Gerakan has a uni too — Wawasan Open University.
It is hosting today an event organized by the Penang Institute, i.e. Guan Eng’s think-tank – see poster below.

Penang Institute’s Malay-oriented (‘Nusantara’) programmes
The event is co-organized with Gerak Budaya which publishes books by local opposition figures.
Just like the MCA’s Nest of Evangelistas promoting liberal Malay writers in J-Star and liberal Malay in-house journos, the Penang Institute is also diligently cultivating Malay liberals.
Its talk at Wawasan Open University features Marina Mahathir and Sisters In Islam co-founder Zainah Anwar.
Malay liberals and Protuns to augment oppo votebank
Now there is this trend of the Chinese, particularly evangelistas, eagerly nurturing Malay liberalism. The Gerakan-controlled university, by providing the event venue, seems to be in the thick of it.
In the political calculus, activities of the Malay liberals and the Protuns only benefit the opposition cause.
MCA is already proven to be a BN backstabber.
In order not to be tarred with the same perception brush as the owners of The Scissors, Gerakan should do more to help BN election efforts rather than be a dead-weight passenger on the BN boat.
Is Umno the only BN party willing to stop the DAP juggernaut?
