Hannah Yeoh yesterday fired another salvo at Ismail Sabri — see her arrogant tweet below.
In it, the biaDAP Segambut MP dared our PM to fact check her.
Their Twitter exchange stemmed from an earlier piece of baiting by the DAP SuperCyber Bully — see backgrounder here.
Nonetheless before I discuss our Cosplay Queen’s latest attention-seeking drama, a quick detour first to the DAP heartland and one related episode of political friction.
DAP the most dedicated player of hate politics
Dr Norlela Ariffin is the PKR Adun in Penanti and also a Penang exco.
In an interview with The Vibes published two days ago, Dr Norlela said that opportunistic DAP lawmakers in her state will invariably attack the Malay and Islamic parties at every turn.
”No need to do that all the time because it keeps perpetuating the same tiring attacks,” she lamented to the news portal.
Dr Norlela views the DAP animus as part and parcel of their ever continuous “rhetoric against Malays and Muslims”.
Scuttlebutt has it that the cause of her distress is DAP Penang evangelist MP Steven Sim.
While Dr Norlela‘s complaint is separate from the recent floods (most likely it’s to do with the Covid crisis), nonetheless her experience says a lot about how the DAP operates.
Imagine, here is a Harapan elected rep and PhD holder who feels that her supposed coalition allies are bullying her.
How then must ordinary Malays feel when confronted by DAP bullies?
Hannah bit off more than she can chew
Ever since she was deprived of her Mahathir-appointed Deputy Minister post, Hannah Yeoh has been dogging and badmouthing Rina Harun and Siti Zailah who are presently heading the Women’s Ministry.
In fact, Siti Zailah had had to close her Twitter account after being cyberbullied by the usual suspects mob.
This PAS muslimah leader, who stepped into Hannah’s shoes at the ministry, withdrew from Twitter barely a fortnight after taking up her job in the Muhyiddin cabinet.
Her DAP predecessor no doubt played a role in initiating the negative social media reaction to Siti Zailah — see news report ‘Hannah Yeoh causes a stir over appointment of successor from PAS’ (The Mole, 12 March 2020).
Even in the very early days of DAP power, MCA’s then Beliwanis national treasurer had already remarked that Hannah is the “DAP SuperCyber Bully” (see below).
And the bullying behaviour has just got progressively worse in tandem with Hannah’s unstoppable rise up the political ladder — refer these ‘DAP SuperCyber Bully’ tweets from 2010, 2012 and 2015.
All this while, Hannah has – marching in goose step behind her – the DAP party machinery, Red Bean Army, church activists and many partisan media hacks who are friendly to DAP.
@hannahyeoh has 357,300 Twitter followers.
As a result, Hannah managed to get away with so much for so long that she has become consumed with hubris.
The aforementioned targets of the online mob have been a trio of female YBs from Bersatu, PKR and PAS. These Malay women had brushed against DAP’s two most prominent evangelical figures.
In taking aim at Ismail Sabri, however, Hannah is no longer tangling with fairer sex politicians who are liable to be flustered or break down in tears.
Her potshots at the PM will not be therefore yielding the same easy, mob-backed walkovers that Hannah has enjoyed so much and so often in the past.
