The two-faced, forked-tongue DAP has finally swallowed the end of its own spiky tail.
“It is now clear that Umno, by alleging Mahathir’s supposed lineage, is also embarking on a racist approach in its continued attacks against Mahathir,” said DAP vice chairman M. Kulasegaran rising to Tun M’s defence about the latter’s Indian heritage now ‘officially’ revealed after it has been long hinted at.
“The racist approach used to attack Mahathir will not work and can even backfire as young Malaysians especially reject racial politics,” said the DAP Anak Bangsa Malaysia (“not Indian”, yah) senior leader in a press statement today.
According to Kula, bringing up the ethnicity of Tun’s late Indian grandfather is a ” low and irresponsible tactic”.
“It is clear and simple that there is a racist element in Zahid’s allegation,” added Kula.
“Now with Zahid using Mahathir’s lineage to attack him, the public should be surprised that Umno has decided to adopt the racist approach against Mahathir after all its attacks have not been effective,” the DAP Ipoh Barat MP concluded.
(Note how Kula is repeatedly throwing the “racist” word at Umno.)
Let’s get this straight.
Zahid Hamidi verified a long-circulating rumour that Mahathir’s IC bears the term s/o (‘son of’) instead of ‘bin’.
His deputy in the Home Ministry Nur Jazlan today confirmed the accuracy of the information revealed by his boss about Dr M’s ancestry that can be traced to Kerala in India.
But to the DAP, however, it is now “racist” to even actualize a factually correct detail that Tun’s grandfather hailed from India.
I suppose for the DAP it is equally “racist” to remark that Kit Siang’s father hailed from China.
This being the case, why do we need to have vernacular (Chinese and Tamil) schools? Aren’t these schools “racist” too for perpetuating the mother tongue and customs of Dapster ancestors originating from countries taboo to be mentioned presently?
So following the same DAP logic displayed in defending Tun’s Malayness, the SJK (C) Chinese schools – using the national language of China as its medium of instruction – must certainly be racist-racist-racist-racist too.
