“The DAP should have built on [principles of justice and fairness] instead of creating the running dog narrative for the MCA…” — THAYAPARAN @ Malaysiakini (28 March 2022)
In his Sinchew column yesterday, Tajuddin Rasdi wrote “90% of Malays believe that Chinese are dirty, immoral and corrupt” — see below.
Tajuddin was for some years a prominent DAP member. So it is more probable that he is referring to Melayu DAP who view Umno’s Chinese “running dogs” in such negative terms.
On the flip side, many Cina DAP also believe that Umno is dirty, immoral and corrupt.
Five successive Bersih campaigns succeeded in destroying the BN’s two-thirds parliamentary majority (2008), demolishing BN’s popular vote (2013) and finally disappearing BN altogether from Putrajaya (2018).
Bersih people were instrumental in mobilizing the people power which toppled the Umno-led BN.
DAP Christians played a big role in this movement to cleanse our country. The photo above shows Guan Eng on stage against a gigantic ‘Bersihkan Malaysia’ backdrop.
Born Again Christian Guan Eng is also pictured below in his yellow Bersih T-shirt.
Behind Kit Siang is DAP’s evangelical Christian Steven Sim who was recently appointed the party’s National Organizing Secretary.
The cropped picture below shows Bersih chairman Maria Chin Abdullah – today herself a Harapan MP – standing behind DAP evangelist Hannah Yeoh.
Hannah too, like her mentor Guan Eng, was another frontliner in the ‘Ubah Sekarang, Bersihkan Malaysia’ crusade to rid our country of the dirty old governments led by Umno.
In her almost decade-old tweet from 2013, @hannahyeoh had claimed that she is incorruptible while at the same time sniping at Rosmah Mansor — see below.
Then around the time of the Sheraton Move, Hannah reiterated her political coalition’s immaculate cleanliness, tweeting — “I am confident many can now differentiate … clean from corrupt ones” [comparing between PH and BN governance].
To recap, many Chinese are viewed as dirty, immoral and corrupt by the Malays, according to Sinchew’s Tajuddin Rasdi.
Many Melayu Umno are likewise viewed as dirty, immoral and corrupt by the caped crusaders desiring to Bersihkan Malaysia.
This leaves DAP Christians (bukan Cina tapi Bangsa Malaysia) as the cleanest, most morally upright and incorruptible people in Malaysia.
It’s not a surprising conclusion, considering how often Hannah – and her fellow evangelists – preach about ‘righteousness exalting a nation’, i.e. a teaching from the Bible.
Charity begins at home. The work of scrubbing clean, however, does not begin at home for the DAP when it comes to their own chairman.
The party‘s Chairman Lim is facing serious corruption charges in court but that’s okay. Even if he is found guilty, the DAP can sprinkle their holy water to make him smell as clean as a newly bathed baby.
