One example of cancel cultureHundreds of thousands of Malaysians (collective total) signed several online petitions asking for Rohingya to be deported. These folks were immediately accused of hate speech by the cyberbullies. Cyberbullies are the chest-thumping virtue signalers who go around screaming “xenophobia”, “racism” and other slurs at ordinary people like Makcik Kiah and Pakcik Salleh. The thing is not only have these bullies succeeded in silencing the vox populi, they have further successfully pressured Jabatan Imigresen into deleting its tweeted poster that said “Kedatangan anda (migran etnik Rohingya) tidak diundang” — see below. The pro-Rohingya activists succeeded in their objective of deplatforming, which is to say, managed to persuade woke Internet platforms to take down those petitions. The bullies succeeded by falsely portraying those who signed the petitions as a horde of racists, xenophobes and haters. And the result is that hundreds of thousands of signatures were “cancelled” and their voices not allowed to be heard. BELOW: Ordinary Malaysians accused of dehumanizing migrants and refugees
Screaming “inhumane! inhumane! inhumane!” is just a smokecreenIt is only smoke and mirrors to accuse Makcik Kiah and Pakcik Salleh of xenophobia, and of cruelty and “inhumanity” for supporting the actions taken by our immigration officers in PATI round-up operations. What’s really inhumane is how the factory operators treat their foreign workers, more so those workers who are undocumented. A. Kadir Jasin said on Facebook that although a “handful of Malaysians may have made it into Forbes’ list of richest men and women in the world” nonetheless their wealth creation does not necessarily “make Malaysia a developed and civilised country”. These Third World towkays feign ignorance about the terrible working conditions in their factories and their henchmen try to deflect the heat from their bosses by pointing fingers back. A clever smokescreen indeed! The benefit of having foreigners here – in terms of accumulating wealth – is reaped by the capitalist class. But the rich are not paying the social costs which are borne by our government (immigration and security operations, detention, healthcare) and by the public who have the parang-wielding Rohingya living in their midst.
‘They want Rohingya to be absorbed and allowed work here’ — recommended readYet most ‘strangely’, the #MigranJugaManusia advocates are screaming “xenophobia” and “racist” at ordinary Malaysians but not screaming “oh, the inhumanity!” at the industrialists (captains of industry) using cheap foreign labour comprised of migrants and ‘refugees’. We can surmise that all the screaming of “xenophobia” are to provide a smokescreen for the real perpetrators of inhumanity. It would be interesting to find out who are the funders of these screaming activists and name-calling civil society members who have smoke coming out of their ears.
