So YB Ong Kian Ming is planning to beat a strategic retreat.
Smarter operatives like him are correctly guessing that similar to the backlash at party level, there will be a bigger backlash against DAP come the next election.
It is a case of the virtue signalers becoming too habituated to spitting. After having spat incessantly at rivals and opponents, the lines became blurred and these perfect Pious Ones even started to spit at their own party base who’re not in lockstep with DAP’s Bangsa Malaysia bullshit.
Below are two headlines from yesterday. Ong and Hannah Yeoh are political birds of a feather in the way they operate.
News item #1 — Bye, Felicia
DAP’s tudung-wearing Bangsa Malaysia icon Hannah lamented the decision of her fellow Bangsa Malaysian MP, the songkok-wearing Ong, not to defend his parliament seat.
@hannahyeoh tweeted that the Bangi MP’s announced departure wrt GE15 is “a great loss for Malaysia”.
“A great loss“ … Oh, really? Her comment just shows how much DAP Bangsa Malaysia leaders are full of themselves.
And why not? After all, to their cheerleaders, these A+ (konon) DAP Christian politicians can do no wrong compared with ‘fail’-grade Malay politicians (who in the Bangsar Bubble opinion) can do nothing right.
News item #2 — Dong Jiao Zong not a fan
The Dapster Sentral news hub (see tweet above) yesterday speculated that Damansara MP Tony Pua – another Bangsa Malaysian – might also sit out GE15 too.
A little over two months ago, Pua publicly castigated the Foon Yew school board “for destroying the moral fibre of our society”.
Pua characterized the gesture by Foon Yew (an independent Chinese school in Johor) to invite Najib as reflecting “something really screwed up” in terms of fomenting decay in Chinese “culture”, “righteousness”, “dignity” and “honour”.
As mentioned before, DAP Bangsa Malaysians see themselves as the better righteous and honourable people living here. Other folks who don’t share their woke worldview are deemed immoral and uncultured.

‘Oxford man’ Pua and ‘Cambridge man’ Ong have been rejected by DAP delegates. Both did not win a seat in the party 30-member elected exco.
Reacting to the duo’s recent loss in the party election, their Bangsa Malaysia fanboys immediately accused DAP delegates of being racist, chauvinist and Chinese supremacist.
In an analogous vein last December, Hannah issued a statement saying “I will continue to do so [wear tudung “appropriately”] in the face of a handful of extreme voices in this land”.
Critics of her cosplay do not comprise only a small “handful of extreme voices” as Hannah is pitching. A wider swathe of the public certainly look upon her as a hypocrite.
Responding to the criticisms, Hannah chastized her detractors as an immoderate, selfish lot who need to be taught how to show religious respect to those around them and furthermore to be learn to kind to their neighbours.
DAP’s Chinese-educated base who lack the Segambut MP’s Christian virtues – as per the book of Matthew 22: 36-40 Bible verse quoted by Hannah – are depicted by the opposition choir as extremists.
Virtue signallers in the Harapan exco chamber follow the beat dictated by DAP’s social media-savvy poseurs.
Since 2008, the DAP leadership has been dominated by preachy, self-righteous, Bible-thumping Christians of Hannah’s ilk.

Meludah ke langit
Bangsa Malaysians spit on Cina totok just as much as they spit on non-liberal Malays (whom they call “stupid” for voting BN), on orthodox Muslims (whom they label “Taliban” for supporting PAS), and on the B40 low-income class (whom they disdain as “cruel and inhumane” for rejecting the Rohingya boat people).
Non-Bangsar Chinese voting in the DAP party election not too long ago obviously had little fancy to be spat at by the playacting elitist politicians.
DAP’s exemplary elites regard themselves as above the old guard such as Ronnie Liu who they mock as “low class” (incidentally or not, one of Hannah’s favourite words).
Hannah herself characterized Ronnie as “toxic” while Tony Pua slammed Ronnie as a “Chinese chauvanist the party doesn’t need”.
DAP‘s diversity-touting trailblazers – ever since their spectacular debut in GE12 – have been encouraging a hybrid of simultaneous virtue-signalling and vitriol-spewing.
These Dapsters are so used to spitting that they cannot refrain themselves even when it comes to targeting a faction within DAP, i.e. party members not as attuned to wokeism as the Hannahs and the Tonys.
Spitting venom at the Chinese-educated grassroots, however, is merely alienating DAP’s own voters. Most importantly, remember that it is DAP itself which has cultivated this spitting habit among its fanatical supporters — therefore deservingly, Senjata Makan Tuan.
