The Chinese, especially those living on Penang island and in Jerusubang, exist in their own ethnic bubble.
To borrow a phrase popularized by MCA’s public enemy No.1 Ridhuan Tee, the Dapster-evangelistas are “ultra kiasu”, i.e. holding to the credo that ‘heads we win, tails you lose‘.
This kiasu ethos is demonstrated through their reaction – see below – to Guan Eng’s indictment for corruption.
Must win at Annie cost
Parse it whichever way, they (this includes Melayu DAP) always want to win at the expense of self-delusion, such as insisting that ‘If convicted Guan Eng is a martyr, if acquitted he’s a hero’.
They’re only lying to themselves and to others. That’s what they (this includes Melayu DAP) are good at.
Their deranged outlook is dangerous. Because sooner rather than later, these people will collide with the harsh reality where a majority of Malaysians believe that Guan Eng is neither martyr nor hero but a conniving conman.
The battle lines are drawn along creeds so that what will soon ensue is a pseudo-‘religious’ war. The battle of the clerics has already begun — Act 1, Scene 1: Bishop Emeritus Paul vs Mufti of Pahang.
