Former Selangor Speaker Teng Chang Kim intimated that DAP could parachute even a buffalo into Balakong on its by-election ticket and it would still get the votes (read Malaysiakini story here).
Teng further remarked that many of the DAP new breed politicians are entitled millennials who are “arrogant and cause chaos after coming to power”.
Murmurings among the party older grassroots regardless, any greenhorn “silver spoon” candidate is nonetheless guaranteed to sail through due to the solid support of DAP’s committed vote bank.
This herd mentality of the Chinese – 95 percent of whom are Harapan supporters – is a problem although the insular community remains in denial about how a majority of Malaysians view negatively their tribalism.
Unstoppable force meets immovable object
I’ve been mentioning how Hannah Evangelista and her horde often berate their Umno opponents as “wicked” and “evil”.
The DAP polity exists in a dualistic bubble – fervently believing their own side is pure goodness and light whereas Najib, Zahid, Umno (and in the eyes of some Dapsters, certain objectionable government agencies such as BTN and Jakim) all belong to the dark side.
They’re also adamant and abusive in their adamance on DAP’s goodness; they’re vehement and vitriolic too in their vehemence on Umno’s badness. This dichotomous Dapster mindset is cast in stone.
And ever since DAP swept into federal power on May 9, the bullying – by what can be dubbed DAP’s ‘evangelical wing’ – has become more and more insufferable.
Do they imagine there will be no blowback from those Tanah Melayu defenders who are being bullied by DAP? Remember that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
They that sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind.
