DAP has learned one lesson at least from Bersih 4.0.
After a yellow tide of evangelical party supporters overflooded the last rally in August 2015, this time they’re careful that Malays must be conspicuously seen in their Bersih 5.0 photo ops.
Hence the emphasis on a handful of Malay Yellow Shirts who were put on display in the shop front – details, read here – a couple of days ago during the Bersih convoy flag-off.
They’re only window dressing, however. It’s merely a sprinkling of Malay individuals who are willing to serve as a fig leaf for Bersih 5.0. But more important is what will be the actual numbers in Malay turnout when Nov 19 brings on the biggie?
After all, the PAS bean counters – who were the backbone of the original Bersih demos – are not going to be taking part in this fifth edition of the yellow street protest.

Lessons DAP is incapable of learning
DAP realized that its dominance of Bersih 4.0 backfired when the Malays were largely missing in action. So now they’re trying not to repeat the same mistake.
While DAP might change its public relations approach and attempt to make Bersih appear multiracial, it nonetheless cannot change the party’s inherent character, i.e. the nature of the beast.
It is in their DNA always to demonize their opponents.
They’re the most malicious people. FMT and Malaysiakini were even compelled to lock their readers comment section to stanch the torrent of vitriol against Tuan Guru Haron Din upon his passing.
Thus we find they vilify the Baju Merah as “thugs” whereas portraying the Yellow Shirts as a “peaceful” assembly.
They frame it that Bersih participants are altruistic freedom fighters whereas the Gelombang Merah rally goers are depicted as dirty mercenaries.
They claim that the Bersih leaders are patriots in comparison to Merah leaders who are Nazis.
And their Chinese congregation dutifully swallow all this DAP propaganda. As the adage goes, trouble begins when the flock start believing wholesale in their own propaganda.

Tengku Adnan: Riots could break out
DAP’s goon squad has successfully blocked most of the critical feedback from reaching the Chinese audience. Living in an ethnic silo, Cina DAP do not have awareness of how negatively other communities view them.
Umno sec-gen Tengku Adnan has cautioned that riots might happen.
Let’s take the anti-Chinese sentiment that prevails in parts of Indonesia.
Full-blown anti-Chinese riots previously occurred on 13-15 May 1998 in Jakarta and other flashpoints, where according to the Jakarta Military Command, 463 people were killed.
Only a very, very small fraction of the Indonesian native population carried out the physical attacks against the Chinese. But still you need to seriously ponder on what was the opinion of the silent majority about the Chinese because outbreak of the riots did not happen in a vacuum.
Slick propaganda by evangelistas and the brutal cyber terrorism of the Dapsters have combined to suppress the Malay backlash and other expressions of disgust at the behaviour of the Cina DAP from reaching or being heard by the complacent Chinese public.
As one example, the ordinary Chinese might not realize how widespread the name-calling label “Dapigs” has become.
Malaysian Chinese risk being victims of the DAP’s extreme propaganda success pushing the idea that the DAP is spreading love-love-love while everybody opposed to the party must be haters.

Will the turnout at Bersih 5.0 next month mirror that of Bersih 4.0?
The tableux that was the Bersih convoy flag-off was so obviously crafted for public relations consumption, just like our typical muhibbah posters that take care to place the Malay model in the middle of the photo shoot line-up.
Which Malay will attend Bersih 5.0?
Fact is, PAS folks have got no love for the DAP and would not be stepping within a mile of the Bersih 5.0 rally.
Some PKR Malays will show up but Parti Anwar has never had PAS’s ground game.
PAN warriors support DAP and will support Bersih 5.0, and 85,000 of them will occupy Dataran That is if you believe that the new proxy party has registered that many members.
That leaves the followers of PPBM (Tun’s party) to make up the Malay Bersih numbers.
DeDAP! DeDAP! DeDAP!
Arigato, and thanks for all the raw fish.
Tun himself had graced Bersih 4.0. Therefore the ex-statesman is anticipated to reprise his headliner role in Bersih 5.0. No surprises there.
The more important question is how many Protuns will follow suit?
A vindictive Protun reject, whose Malay blog has been bought off to serve as the premier whack-Najib platform, is nowadays failing to attract the anti-Najib Malays except for those hardcore ones (pentaksub Tun).
Although some Umno Malays are unhappy with the party and its president, nonetheless they can see for themselves the gutter level and viciousness when the DAP executes a reverse takeover.
A DAP-dominated environment is too toxic for comfort despite their (and the Melayu macai’s) occasional pretense of spreading love and kindness.
Bersih 5.0 will similarly be a DAP-dominated environment. Expect it to be as toxic as Bersih 4.0. Only Melayu DAP will spin it as a noble cause.
