“TalentCorp has little to show for the millions it has spent to lure Malaysian abroad home,” says TMI‘s top/most read story today headlined ‘More packing up and leaving Malaysia’.
Talking about (what the DAP popularly terms) the ‘brain drain’, George Chang writes that the immigrant flow of former Malaysians to Australia is due to the belief that “there is no future for them in Malaysia”. Continue reading “SJKC Pai Chee principal, three Malay teachers transferred out” →

Oh, look! Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim has got Dr Mahathir’s nose and Samy Vellu’s lips.
J-Star CEO Wong Chun Wai writes in his column today, “Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is open about his ancestry, acknowledging it could be traced to Kerala in India”.
According to Chun Wai, Abdul Azeez is a Malay only “technically and legally” as well the Umno Baling MP’s “forefathers also landed in Malaya by boat”. Continue reading “Wong Chun Wai: Umno MP Azeez Rahim is Indian” →

A Malaysian born in 1997 would be eligible to vote for the first time in 2018 (as at May 4).
During GE11 @ 2004, he would have been seven years old.
During GE12 @ 2008, he would have been eleven years old.
During GE13 @ 2013, he would have been sixteen years old.
Come GE14 @ 2018 (probable), he would be legally an adult. Continue reading “Is DAP transferring out supporters to vote in marginal mixed seats?!” →

MCA is merely the elected voice of those 10 percent of us Chinese who voted BN.
MCA does not have the mandate to speak for Malaysia’s Chinese community as a whole or in greater part because the party is largely voted into office by Malays and Indians.
Look for yourself the demography of the MCA’s 7-Eleven seats in Parliament and the state assemblies.
- Blue = Malay voters
- Red = Chinese voters
- Yellow = Indian voters

The first Bersih took place on 10 Nov 2007 while the most recent Bersih was on 29-30 Aug 2015. Seven years and 10 months elapsed between the two dates.
This approximately eight-year period saw such a great change as to inverse the equation.
In Bersih ori, Malay participation was 80 percent, if not more. In Bersih 4.0, Chinese participation was 80 percent, if not much more. It was the evangelistas and Firsters who marshaled the yellow tide to overflow the streets.
UBAH, journey from 2007 to 2015

I wouldn’t be surprised if he was… given how the editorial content of an MCA-owned company has been allowed to be hijacked to serve the interests of the evangelical Christian opposition.

Yes, you read right. The Malaysian Chinese Association arguably possesses the most successful track record in the world as a political party representing an ethnic minority.
Er, why so, you might ask. Do note that what I’m saying is nothing novel, okay, so there’s no need to credit me. Actually it was Prime Minister Najib Razak who last year had remarked on this very same idea.

Wanita MCA president Heng Seai Kie is the new senior advisor to Najib Razak. Heng’s recently created job description – to advise on the National Unity Blueprint – is a ministerial-level post.
Among her first public concerns as de facto National Unity Minister is the negative racial profiling by the Persatuan Pengguna Islam Malaysia – see July 15 press statement titled ‘Say “No” to hate speeches & heal the wounds‘.
PPIM had alleged that Chinese businesses “tipu” Malay customers because they want to make extra profit. Continue reading “Hate speech is fomenting dangerous anti-Chinese sentiments” →
Below is a 100-year timeline.
There was generally no social interaction between the races in Malaya.
By the 1920s, the Malays were starting to feel uncomfortable with the huge presence of alien workers. This discomfort was expressed through the Malay publications and writings of the time.
In response to the Malay unease, the British colonial government began taking steps to curtail the inflow of Chinese emigrants by enacting the Immigration Restriction Ordinance in 1928. Continue reading “Were we ever united as a country, truthfully?” →

My title concept* above derives from the Blut und Eisen speech given by Prussian prime minister Otto von Bismarck to the Landtag (Parliament) when he “rejected demands for liberal reform“.
(Note: The headline is not my original turn of phrase. It’s Samuel Huntington’s.)
The relevant portion that lent Bismarck’s famous 1862 peroration its name is as follows: “… it is not by speeches and majority resolutions that the great questions of the time are decided – that was the big mistake of 1848 and 1849 – but by iron and blood”.

Wong Chun Wai’s column today in The J-Star is titled, ‘No room for intolerance‘. I’ve excerpted parts of his article below and reproduced the paragraphs in red italics.
My own comments on Chun Wai’s views follow.
Wong Chun Wai (WCW): “Like most Christians in this country, I am sad rather than angry over the protest staged by about 50 people demanding the removal of a cross at a church in Taman Medan in Selangor.”
Helen Ang (HA): Like Hannah Yeoh’s staged sorrow …

“50 people took it upon themselves to resort to thuggery,” said the NST editorial today on the Taman Medan incident concerning the church cross.
NST considered the protest as one deserving of the label “mindless acts of hatred and intolerance” as well as demonstrating “a regrettable level of religious tolerance among Malaysians”. Continue reading “Who’s the bad guy in Taman Medan? THINK DEEPER” →
Regular commenter zack suggested @ 2015/04/23 at 7:30 am: “You are right Helen. In fact MCA should sell it at nominal fee of RM1 to DAP.” Another reader albi commented @ 2015/04/23 at 11:04 am:
“Just like Hannah Yeoh I really pity MCA and Gerakan. To fight against this DAP propaganda machinery and regain the Chinese support is certainly no easy task.”
Albi is alluding to the ‘pity’ that Madame Speaker feels for Gerakan and MIC. Continue reading “Sell J-Star to DAP for one ringgit, MCA urged” →

‘Melayu Lama’ is currently trending in my blog. See screen capture of my blog stats for 16 April 2015, i.e. today, on Melayu Lama’s piece. The reason for a spike in accessing the article is due to it being discussed somewhere in Facebook.
Coincidentally, I had hosted this particular write-up by the Malay blogger – see caricature of him (below) – exactly two years ago on 16 April 2013. So it’s a walk down memory lane on a second ‘anniversary’.

Dr Mahathir said today in Che Det that Najib’s leadership in Selangor was ineffective.
Actually if Muhyiddin or Zahid or Hisham had been in charge of Selangor during the last general election, the result for BN would still not have been any better.
Similar to the situation in Kota Setar in the 1969 general election, the problem is the Chinese and their anti-establishment amok. Continue reading “I respectfully beg to disagree with Tun today” →
Need to amputate MCA before the Chinese party causes BN to lose election

MCA yang anti-hudud tidak mewakili suara masyarakat Cina yang sekarang sudah mengikut alunan Firster.
Seterusnya, MCA tidak pandai membaca denyutan nadi golongan Cina yang telah ‘ubah’ ataupun dalam kata lain, melalui satu anjakan paradigma dari segi pemikiran mereka.
Sebenarnya ianya DAP yang menerima sokongan tak berbelah bagi kaum Tionghua. Maka orang Cina yang 90 peratus pro-DAP boleh dikira juga sebagai pro-hudud.
Bak kata Ong Kian Ming, si Ahli Parlimen DAP Serdang: “Isu hudud sudak tidak laku bagi kaum Cina.” Continue reading “Tolong pecat MCA” →
