Despite DAP dangling so many carrots/carats gold, it takes really one kind (satu macam punya) of Malay who is even willing to consider joining, much less to actually work for, the evangelical party as its hatchet man.
Incentives are plentiful and the passage to attaining them made easy by DAP for these Malays. But still, there are very few takers.
Therefore those rare Malays that do take up DAP’s gilded offer are fast tracked and certainly amply rewarded beyond what they can ever expect for their meagre talents — in comparison to should they have worked their way up the ladder in either Umno or PAS.
Melayu celup pun jadi lah
Zairil, for example, was given the shoo-in Parliament seat of Bukit Bendera to contest. It is a safe and significantly Chinese-majority seat.
A short while before his candidature, Zairil had been trotted out to the general public amid much fanfare and proudly proclaimed as the DAP’s new “Malay” recruit.
Strangely for a party that touts itself as (skin) “colour blind” and “beyond race”, DAP trumpeted and placed inordinate emphasis on Zairil being konon a … hahaha … Malay — see pix above.
It was laughably a case of cakap tak serupa bikin. At the same time that the DAP has rhetorically sworn to demolish race politics, here is the party itself employing a tremendously skewed degree of Malay ‘quota’ benefits.
Drinking from a poisoned chalice
In a specially convened press conference, DAP did not introduce Zairil as being its harapan baru from bangsa Anak Malaysia. Instead DAP was loudly crowing oh lookee, what have we got ourselves here? A bona fide anak orang besar Umno.
From the way that the DAP always talks bad about Umno, you’d think that the evangelical party would be eager to distance itself from having anything to do with a person associated with the Umno legacy. But no. DAP was so pleased that their catch is the son of an Umno veteran.
Another beneficiary of kulit-fication is Dyana Samad (pix above) who would have been 20 years away from ever qualifying to be an MP candidate had she been in Wanita or Puteri Umno.
You helptch me, I helptch you
There is no way that greenhorns of Zairil and Dyana’s (lack of) calibre could have gotten such golden opportunities served to them on a silver platter if they had been in the parti Melayu or the parti Islam. In Umno or PAS, they would have had to earn their chops and pay their dues first.
DAP, on the other hand, gives them a free ride. In return, Melayu DAP become the front men whenever the party wants to whack a Malay or an Islamic institution or defend the Christians.
DAP’s whack squad to hentam from the inside
Zairil is his party’s ustaz mi segera — but see the Isma reminder to him below. He whacks conservative Malays who practise orthodox Islam.
When DAP wants to whack Mara, Dyana will invariably be the one to give her alma mater a tight slap.
When DAP wants to whack Jakim, Syerleena of Team Zairil steps to the fore as party spokeswoman.
When DAP wants to whack the Mufti of Pahang, Tengku Zulpuri takes up the cudgels.
And then there is the 20k champion whacker in blogosphere — a Melayu reject who made an amazing turnaround from “Apa lagi Cina mahu?” to lebih-Cina-dari-Cina beserta tetiba menjelma pula sebagai wira perjuangan Kristian.
Melayu DAP are more RBA than RBA
Just like their evangelical counterparts, Melayu DAP advocate that one should love even enemies of their faith by turning the other cheek.
These Melayu DAP, i.e. those carrying out the party propaganda in social media and most particularly that 20k fella in the blogs, try to make out as if terms commonly found in the Islamic canon are our new four-letter/dirty words — cannot say “kafir harbi” lah, cannot discuss “jihad” lah, cannot quote Quran verse 2:120 lah, etc, etc.
Like the RBA – and most particularly that 20k fella – they liberally slap labels such as “racist”, “extremist” and “bigot” on their fellow Malays. In fact we could say they’ve become more RBA than RBA.
Melayu DAP yang tampak anti perpaduan ummah
Like the Jerusubang preachers, Melayu DAP often lecture Malays on how to be good Muslims.
Meskipun tak bertauliah, Melayu DAP preach that Malays must do this, mustn’t do that when reacting to religious provocation.
That 20k reject fella from Johor particularly loves to whack Malay conservatives as being bad Muslims and “haters”. Projib Umno leaders are his especial target for their “despicable” and “hateful” behaviour.
The DAP doctrine of Malaysian Malaysia is dutifully parroted.
Chanting the mantra, “Malaysian First good, everybody else bad”, one Melayu prepaid blogger at least is convinced that non Firsters who are racist will not receive blessings from Allah. Pandainya dia menghukum.
According to their version of ‘Islamic’ observance, Malays in our country cannot and must not complain even when others encroach into their religion — for instance, cuba nak kebas kalimah Allah.
In their view, if the Malays utter any complaint, it can only be because they’ve been goaded by bad and wicked people.
“Malays should not listen to all the not nice goading to hate,” is the warning given by these Melayu DAP (particularly one prepaid fraudster). Their work is dissuade Malays from listening to timely advice from the Muslim authorities.
If only hudud had a punishment where their lying tongues can be cut off …
They’re quick to rubbish the concern that umat Islam di Malaysia perlu bersatu untuk menghadapi ancaman evangelista yang memusuhi Islam.
Any Malay willing to listen to well-founded advice from those who are learned in Islam (rather than listening to ustaz dan ustazah DAP) are accused of persecuting the minority.
But most striking of all, some of these Melayu can even outdo the RBA in tipu, bohong dan fitnah. Ya le, bila sudah jadi Dapster, apa kurangnya bakat mereka.
The stories that these lebih Cina–dari-Cina Malay bloggers, who serve the interests of the ultra kiasu, are able to fabricate is simply fantastic and the stories concocted keep changing to suit the occasion. Kejap ni, kejap tu.
It’s time for a pushback by decent Malaysians.
Please check on the lucrative payout given to those Melayus who have made an incredible volte face from being Umno media operatives previously, to appointing themselves today as heroic defenders of the Christian minority.
These Malays may not be kafir but are they harbi you think?
