The Sarawak alliance led by Abang Johari Openg (pix below) is now buddying up to PAS. Johari is a Malay Muslim.
Will we witness a similar high-fiving between native Sarawak leaders and DAP anytime soon? Or would DAP be nudged even further to the fringe and isolated from the indigenous populations in both Malaya and Borneo? Continue reading “What do Mahathir’s Pribumi people think of ally DAP?” →

Setakat ini sudah berlangsung lapan pilihanraya kecil manakala dua lagi bakal diadakan di Kimanis dan Tanjung Piai.

DIVERSITY, like ‘pluralism’, is a virtue-signaling word beloved of Harapan that they preach but don’t practice.
There is little diversity of political thought among Chinese voters because 95 percent of them support only one party — the DAP.
Where is there any plurality (having many options) when the Chinese electorate already obliterated MCA and other Chinese-based BN parties? How can the Hope people claim they love diversity when they had so fervently carried out the DAP command to annihilate MCA in the last election? Continue reading “Umno-PAS get 95% Malay support okay what” →
Wow. Cina DAP are really a big bugbear for PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang who warned today that the Chinese party wants to give over control of Sarawak and the state’s wealth to the Chinese.
Speaking at a get-together in a longhouse in Bintulu, Hadi recalled that after the BN’s fall in GE14, Harapan came to power and with the DAP holding the biggest chunk of this new power.
Unfortunately, the DAP wants wealth for Chinese only, he said in his speech, “untuk orang Cina saja, bukan untuk semua”. Continue reading “Hadi Awang: ”DAP mahukan kekayaan untuk orang Cina saja”” →

“They’ll burn in hell” — DAP leader curses those who slandered him.
Oh really? I’m quite sure it will be the other way around.
It was 6 March 2008.
It was 36 hours before the 12th general election.
It was also 11-and-a-half years ago when an estimated 60,000 Chinese gathered in the open field of Han Chiang High School, Penang for the mega rally dubbed ‘the Mother of All Ceramahs’.

My regular blog reader HY made the comment below @ 10:42pm, Sept 6 responding to my post yesterday ‘Hadi Awang most honest politician in M’sia’.
HY wrote: “i think its a matter of right n wrong, what he said is wrong, nothing to do with honesty. hadi is infamous for his shariah compliance lies, he is essentially a liar, i dun agree he is any better than lks.”
I’d like to share my reply to HY, which is as follows: Continue reading “Delicious doggy (gif)” →
At first glance, Hadi Awang’s “inilah hakikatnya” defence of Zakir Naik – insisting “hak persaudaraan Islam itu mengatasi warganegara dan merentasi sempadan negara dan bangsa” – appeared to be a sucker punch at non Malays.
But on second thought and after ruminating on the matter, I discern Hadi’s statement to be staggering in its sheer honesty. Continue reading “Hadi Awang most honest politician in M’sia” →
British prime minister Boris Johnson – who has been PM only 42 days – will be tabling a motion to trigger a general election, various media have begun to report in their breaking news.

The Malay unity message of PAS and Umno “scares the daylights out of the non-Malays”, wrote Joceline Tan in her Star column yesterday headlined ‘Eye on Malay show of force’.
DAP and its 95% Chinese polity are desperately sledgehammering their diversity-multiculturalism propaganda because – as Joceline says – they’re scared shit of the alternative unfolding before their eyes. Continue reading “DESPERATE Chinese — quick note on ‘Diversity dead or alive’” →
For National Day, Sin Chew invited Dr Awang Azman, Dr Jeniri Amir and Dr Azizuddin Sani to contribute their thoughts on the Merdeka spirit and multiculturalism.
Their essays lauding ‘diversity’ were published in the Sin Chew English portal on Aug 31. All three academics had largely positive messages, good intentions and their heart in the right place. See my blog post compilation yesterday.
Sin Chew had also invited Prof. Dr Mohd Tajuddin Mohd Rasdi to pen his thoughts. Tajuddin, now a lecturer with UCSI (better known as SEGI) University’s School of Architecture and Built Environment, was previously attached to UiTM.
For Prof. Tajuddin, diversity is not working out so well in the country. Continue reading “Diversity — dead or alive? (Part 2) Emigrate” →
That Sin Chew is astute when it comes to clarifying the sentiments of our local Chinese community is unsurprising given this daily broadsheet is the largest circulation Chinese-language newspaper outside of Greater China.
As the go-to trusty signpost, Sin Chew is accurate in parleying the Chinese mindset but unfortunately when it relates to the Malay psyche, not so much. Continue reading “Diversity — dead or alive?” →
