“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Quote attributed to Albert Einstein. Yup, it took a genius to figure this out.
It’s nuts to once again do NCC2 and expect a different result from that obtained with NUCC.
NCC2 is the second National Consultative Council being promoted by J-Star CEO Wong Chun Wai after the idea was first mooted by Anak Bangsa Malaysia Nazir Razak.
NUCC, meanwhile, is the National Unity Consultative Council launched on 11 Sept 2013 with great fanfare under the auspices of the Prime Minister’s Department (JPN).
The jinxed 9/11 launch date has actually proven to be inauspicious as the NUCC – a Marina Mahathir vehicle (see pix below) – is a belly flop.
Can Christians reconcile themselves to living in Muslim country?
The original National Unity Council (1969-1971) had been established through the Emergency Ordinance following the May 13 race riot.
JPN’s Department of National Unity and Integration explain in their website that NUCC was created “under the concept of national reconciliation” in the aftermath of the divisive GE13.
The official purpose of NUCC is to “find solutions in dealing with the racial polarization issues”.
So, we already have a current talk-shop NUCC that has been operating for more than three years and with very little to show.
How is Chun Wai’s proposed NCC2 going to be any different from the existing NUCC?
Objectives of NCC2 according to Wong Chun Wai
The J-Star CEO outlined the shape of his NCC2 in an op-ed published in the MCA-owned newspaper earlier this month. See Chun Wai’s Sunday column ‘It’s time to hold NCC2 meetings‘ on Oct 2.
He wants his bevy of bigshots to brainstorm “a New Malaysia” that is reinvented for the future.
Chun Wai’s NCC2 is aimed – in his words – at galvanizing “a common Malaysian vision on issues of culture, religion and national aspirations”.
We already have the relevant Articles in the Constitution pertaining to the pillars of nation-building/”national aspirations”, i.e. Article 3 — “Islam is the religion of the Federation” and Article 152 — “The national language shall be the Malay language”.
While Malaysians don’t share a “common” religion, there’s no excuse for not having a “common” tongue.
Yet Chun Wai writes:
“… we need to talk about how we can galvanise a common Malaysian vision on issues of culture, religion and national aspirations.”
What bullshit is Chun Wai on about wrt “a common Malaysian vision” when his Bangsar Malaysians can’t even speak BM properly.
If Chun Wai’s Anak Malaysia gang are refusing to rally around even Article 152 so that all Malaysians can communicate meaningfully with each other through our national language, then it logically indicates that Chun Wai’s vision of a “New Malaysia” is one whereby the status quo is altered.
Chun Wai (pix below) is describing a new regime altogether where things are different, e.g. emphasis on English instead of BM, freedom of religion instead of no apostasy allowed, secularism instead of the primacy of Islam, liberalism instead of traditional values, and etc.
In his New Malaysia, there will be a retooled culture, retooled religious establishment and retooled national aspirations that the Dapster-evangelistas bullies will foist on the fragmented Malay community.
Sounds like making a case for regime change
Malaysia – as the land is today – is too faulty for Wong Chun Wai’s taste. He pleads that it is “foolish to think that all is hunky dory”.
According to Chun Wai, “a large number of Malaysians have given up on this country”.
Among his laundry list of complaints:
- corruption needs to be tackled effectively
- “we are facing a trust deficit in this country”
- “people losing their faith in our leaders”
- transparency in political financing needs to be improved
- “alleged questionable deals have all led to tremendous loss in public faith and funds”
- “disturbing religious trends in this country which have threatened the moderate kind of Islam”
It looks like Chun Wai has issues with Najib Razak.
Investigate Chun Wai for possible subversive agenda
Former DAP vice chairman Tunku Aziz Ibrahim has “called for such an idea of forming the NCC2 to be thoroughly examined for any subversive elements” — see NST‘s article yesterday (screenshot above).
Tunku Aziz also stated there were concerns that NCC2 harboured “a special agenda to undermine the government of the day, as well as the current democratically-elected prime minister”.
Below is what Chun Wai said in his own words:
“If we feel strongly that we need leaders with moral and ethical standards, not just religiously, but from a corporate governance point of view, millions of us can send that message online, in an accountable manner, without having to wait for the next election.”
Without having to wait for the next election … KOMA!
Chun Wai’s influence is by virtue of heading the MCA’s media empire. Without The J-Star, he can have only a limited reach to the public.
It is MCA that has allowed The J-Star to be a Nest of Evangelistas.
If there is any subversive agenda to undermine Najib, then MCA must be held responsible for its Gunting dalam Lipatan sneakily snip-snipping away within the BN fold.
