Guan Eng’s bungalow issue is his personal problem. It is not the collective problem of the Chinese community.
Yet the Penang Chief Minister, his father and their party DAP are trying to drag everybody to be involved through misrepresenting the matter at hand in order to fan Chinese sentiments.
(Same like the ‘Allah’ issue was actually a conflict of only the Christians with Muslims but Guan Eng had tried to drag Buddhists and Hindus to be involved by misrepresenting and fanning non-Muslim sentiments.)
Kit Siang kicked off his speech yesterday at Dewan Sri Penang in Sympathy, Support and Solidarity with LGE by making the spurious claim that his son was previously jailed for “defending the dignity and human rights of an underaged Malay girl”.
Here Grandpapa Dapster is merely peddling a standard DAP hagiography — regurgitating the old, worn fairy tale.
It’s not true that Guan Eng was jailed because he was a hero or a martyr for the sake of an underaged Malay girl. The truth is he was jailed for hate mongering.
Guan Eng was in fact jailed for publishing false news about Rahim Thamby Chik which had “the effect of bringing the administration of justice into hatred and contempt”. His actions were seditious.
Wash, rinse, spin, recycle
Now Kit Siang is claiming that his son faces another jail sentence “because he wanted to introduce integrity and good governance in Penang, so that it could be a model state for the rest of Malaysia”.
DAP obviously believes that if, in the past, their audacious ruse about Guan Eng’s conviction by the court worked before, then there’s no reason why it can’t work again.
Guan Eng is not indicted “because he wanted to introduce integrity” as his father is now trying to claim but simply because his cheap bungalow purchase involved an element of corruption.
Note how it’s the DAP sec-gen who is charged in court with corruption but the opposition folks can somehow miraculously twist and say that BN is the one that’s morally bankrupt — see Malaysiakini headline below.
DAP’s 1984 where reality is the Orwellian opposite
It is clear that the Cina DAP and Melayu DAP are delusional and live in a world of doublethink/doublespeak where Hate is Love and other essentials are equally topsy-turvy.
They talk about cleaning up the country – see the ‘Bersihkan Malaysia’ proclamation by Hannah Yeoh below – but they condone corruption if committed by one of their own.
They tout accountability and demand it of the prime minister over 1MDB but prefer to fudge when it comes to the chief minister of a state under their control.
The Melayu DAP blogger assiduously attempts to portray himself as “nice” in his talk but when it comes to his walk, he’s instead full of malice.
They promise to strengthen democracy but adopting Rafizi’s style of politics is merely promoting anarchy.
And no, contrary to Hannah’s innuendo, Rafizi is not being wantonly victimized.
