The holier-than-thou Dapsters

Dapsters are addicted to virtue signaling.

The four most commented articles in Malaysiakini this week all have ‘Najib’ in their headlines — see below.

There are between 120–170 reader comments on each article, and most of them vitriolic.

Malaysiakini subscribers have tons of bile to unload on news items relating to Najib. Why? Because they can feel good about themselves when calling an Umno leader “thief”, “robber” and “kleptocrat”.

Putting the shoe on the other foot, I cannot imagine – even if Guan Eng were to be convicted of corruption – that there would be so many Malays spewing so much venom at him.

Neither have BN politicians ever attacked Guan Eng the way the dozens of DAP politicians ganged up to attack Wee Ka Siong when he was MCA’s sole MP in parliament (i.e. before the Tanjung Piai byelection ushered in the party’s second MP Wee Jeck Seng).

I also can’t visualize Malay supporters of a public rally for RUU355 all wearing a green T-shirt emblazoned with the word ‘alim’ (or something like that).

In contrast, Chinese opposition supporters are proud to sport the word ‘Bersih’ on their chest. And to repeatedly call wide swathes of the Malay establishment “corrupt”.

Imagine if RUU355 supporters were to take a leaf from the Bersih supporters’ book and start calling other people “orang berdosa”.

  1. How do we know that these people are holier than us, you, me and all the others until they produce the World’s First Book of impeccable cleanness complete with names of Tuns, Tan Sris at the top and the plain Enciks at the bottom ? Name calling without substantive support is bad anywhere in this World. It’s not World Class as some people said.

  2. We Malaysians should be proud of ourselves that our beloved Malaysia did not sink beneath the waves of the South china Sea after being torpedoed by the 1MDB, Covid and Ukraine. We must always look for the silver lining in times of crises and not throw verbal barbs at each other. As some say this is not World Class. We Malaysians are all in the same boat for hundreds of years ! Those of us who watched the agony and the tragedy of the Ukranians on TV,, have you noticed how calm and stoic the Ukranian refugees were ? They were orderly, calm and disciplined. This clearly showed they fully understood their sufferings and believed they win ultimately. Kudos to them for their MENTAL FORTITUDE in the jaws of this unnecessary War. As for these ‘holier-than-us types, PLEASE STOP TALKING UNTIL YOU HAVE A SUPER LEADER WHO IS QUALIFIED TO BE THE NEXT PRIME MINISTER. Until then, please suck eggs for health and happiness !

  3. We must be thankful for small mercies during these days of sufferings from 1MDB, Covid and Ukraine. Recently, it was reported that TDM said that the Chinese should not be afraid of the Malay parties which rule over them. Indeed, the Chinese have not for over 500 years in our beloved Malaysia. Kudos to TDM for underlining this historic fact.History is the finest arbiter of the Truth. On the same token, the Malays should not be afraid to be ruled by the non-Malay Ministers.

  4. The holier than you and me types must always remember that they should never, never work their butts ouf for the benefit of unqualified pretenders because at the end of the day, these fellows take the brunt for any blame which may occur without due notice. As it is, history showed all the bluster from Tschaikovky’s 1812, thrown up by the Bersih campaigns only benefited the very very FEW eg the ennobled lawyer who is free to visit Melbourne at all hours of the day and Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore ie. CPTPP, Pulau Batu Putih, US$ 32 million compensation for HSR, etc. The Rakyat were the losers. Hopefully, the holier-than-you and me types see the light of their exuberance and insouciance ! They were NOT even playing the zero sum game ! Just today, it was alleged that pre-2018, an ordinary executive of a ordinary O & G company walloped RM 893 Billions as salary, fees, emoluments etc from 2009-2018 in a company which was not founded by him but by his father ! Now it is alleged that there is a proposal for our impoverished Government to bail the company out. OMG ! Hence, these holier-than you and me types must focus on the right targets which are worthwhile to gain tangible results !

    1. My apologies. Typo error. It should be RM 893 Millions. The sums are so huge and crazy these days that my ‘ O ‘ Level Maths could not cope. Sori.

  5. Dear ‘Holier-than-thou’ folks. Please make sure your super-duper Leader cannot be bought for less than US$ 800 Million as reported in The Edge today. Vide. The Edge. 1MDB Trial. New York.

  6. More for the ‘holier-than-thou’ folks. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE MALAYSIANS SHOULD BE GRATEFUL TO UNCLE SAM FOR EXERCISING THE RULE OF LAW AS THE WORLD KNOWS IT. BY THE SAME TOKEN, ANY COUNTRY WHICH HOSTS JHO LO AND HIS FAMILY SHOULD WITHIN THE PRECEPTS OF INTERNATIONAL LAW SHOULD IMMEDIATELY REPATRIATE THEM BACK TO MALAYSIA WHICH HAS ALWAYS BEEN FORTHCOMING TO SIMILAR REQUESTS ! There is no excuse whatsoever for not doing so !
