“Give me what I want, then only I give what the country wants” – can we get unity that way? (SSS Unity Series No. 1)

30 04 2010

We now start a series of unity articles, unity being the aim of Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua (SSS). We begin by asking if can we adopt the stand, “”Give me what I want, then only I give what the country wants”? Can we get unity that way?

The corollary to that is of course US President J.F Kennedy’s famous words, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

This subject involves a whole host of issues pertaining to loyalty and patriotism. We believe that loyalty must be based on respect for and living by the Constitution of the country. Patriotism is where, when the situation demands it, a citizen is prepared to die for his/ her country.

Related to the above, given below are extracts of articles on recent and current events that show the thinking among the major races in the country. They comprise largely of comments and analyses on the recent Hulu Selangor by-election published online by national newspapers.

We can talk about them in here. Although we are promoting the use of Bahasa Malaysia as it is the National Language, comments may also be in the English language in order to reach a wider audience.

Najib is BN’s trump card

The Chinese have responded well to PM’s 1Malaysia concept and the New Economic Model (NEM).


Singling out the economy, which matters a lot to the Chinese, Najib said: “I need the Chinese to be on board to bring Malaysia to a high-income economy.”


With just 48 hours to polling day, they are banking on the 17,000 Chinese voters or 26% of the 64,500 electorate to tilt the balance in favour of Barisan Nasional.

The Chinese, generally a pragmatic lot, are responding well to Najib’s 1Malaysia concept and the New Economic Model (NEM) in particular.


Nevertheless, Kong, who also heads the MCA machinery for this by-election, does not want to speculate when asked whether the encouraging response will be translated into votes come polling day.

It was learnt that only 26% of the Chinese voters supported Barisan in the 2008 general election. Some MCA leaders say they can double this.

If this is achieved, Barisan candidate P. Kamalanathan is set to be the winner this Sunday, said an MCA insider who felt that doubling the support would be difficult, adding that a more conservative estimate would be around 40%


The fight to win the hearts and minds of the Chinese voters has entered the final lap and Najib is seen as the Barisan’s trump card.

An important victory for Najib

With the Malay heartland remaining steadfast, the Indian community’s moving back to Barisan Nasional helped tip the scales for the ruling coalition.

THE Hulu Selangor (HS) by-election is an important victory for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Barisan Nasional. Congratulations are due.


Most importantly, I felt the Indian community was experiencing a change of heart. In 2008, with temple demolitions and Hindraf dominating the headlines, their frustration and anger was palpable. However, their passions are cooling, in HS at least.

The community is clearly moving back into Barisan’s embrace.

Moreover, they saw P. Kamalanathan’s election as a key test of their own commitment to Najib. They also felt that they had to secure the MIC candidate’s victory in order to ensure a pro-establishment Indian presence in Parliament.

If this is trend is repeated across the country, PR’s victory in 2008 will be difficult to replicate.

Indeed, I can still remember interviewing the Premier during the 2008 polls. At the time we discussed the Indian community’s alienation. Najib knew even then he had to win them back and he’s been targeting their votes ever since.

However, Barisan is still weakened. The recent Indian swing to the ruling coalition will count for nothing if the internal leadership issues within the MIC are not resolved soon.

The same goes for the larger problems of the community’s socio-political and economic alienation. Fail to deliver and they’ll head back to Pakatan.

Najib needs to ensure the entire Barisan pulls its weight.

On that score, the BN component parties (particularly the MCA) are mere shadows. Umno continues to dominate the coalition and the Chinese community feels uncomfortable with this situation.


The Chinese community in HS voted for Pakatan solidly, a sign that Barisan will have to work harder and smarter.

The by-election also proves that the single-minded focus on promoting Malay rights is a vote-winner with the Malay heartland. This is worrying.

Umno will certainly continue in this direction and Perkasa’s position will become stronger.

Moving the Chinese ground


At the same time, there was also a degree of frustration amid the upbeat mood because the Chinese vote had not moved to Barisan. Only about 20% of those in Chinese-majority areas had helped Barisan’s P. Kamalanathan to win.

“We can’t deny it. The Chinese ground has not shifted since the 2008 general election,” said Datuk Seri Dr Fong Chan Onn, who heads the MCA think-tank Insap.

Things could have been worse. The reading shortly after nomination day was that up to 85% of the Chinese would support PKR’s Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.

MCA leaders readily admit that Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s decision to go down and make his presence felt in a number of Chinese new villages in the constituency had an effect.

“The Prime Minister put his prestige on the line. He helped stem the flood,” said Dr Fong.

Umno politicians have been asking why MCA has been unable to do its part in delivering the Chinese vote. They are puzzled that the Chinese could not be moved by the Government’s promise of a RM3mil grant for the Chinese school there.

One Umno politician had asked rather rhetorically: “What more do the Chinese want?”

“What many Umno politicians fail to understand is that many issues that upset the Chinese have more to do with Umno than with MCA,” said Sin Chew executive director Rita Sim.

For instance, Datuk Noh Omar’s foot-in-the-mouth remark that non-Malays should be grateful they were granted citizenship was appalling and ill-timed.

The Selangor Umno deputy chief quickly apologised but the damage was done. DAP went to town with it, stringing up banners of him in the Chinese new villages.

There were other current issues affecting the Chinese mood in Hulu Selangor. One is the lingering spill-over from the Barisan takeover of Perak.


The Chinese are not born to be anti-government nor are they ungrateful for what they have.

They have given overwhelming support to Barisan many times. In 1995, they voted for Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s leadership; in 1999, they propped him up against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s reformasi movement; in 2004, they embraced the incoming Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

They have always been very tactical about the power of their vote. The post-Merdeka generation especially feel they are 100% Malaysian. They do not see why they have to put up with quotas when it comes to education, job and business opportunities and even when buying homes.

Such perceived inequalities influence the way they vote so they take it out on the MCA via the ballot box. It was such Chinese frustration that toppled the Penang government in 2008.

Najib more than any other leader understands all this. His dilemma is that what the non-Malays want are seen as threats to the rights of the Malays. On the other hand, what the Malays demand as their birthright are perceived as discriminatory by the other communities.

As MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek admitted in his frank and direct way, the internal party problems in the past one-and-a-half years have taken their toll on the party image.

Things settled down after the party polls last month but the party is still in the process of rebuilding its image. Dr Chua has taken note of the wake-up call and wants to get things back on track.

The party also had some local political issues in Kuala Kubu Baru.

The current assemblyman used to be a disciple of the former assemblyman but student and sifu went their separate ways because they supported different presidential candidates in the recent party elections. This created problems on the ground.

Perkasa and the ultra-Malay stands of Datuk Ibrahim Ali have also been a sore point among many Chinese who see it as a step backwards for nation-building. Ibrahim’s latest statement to punish the Chinese voters is not going to help.

Throwing money at Chinese voters during an election has limited effect. They are quite sophisticated about such gestures and they know how to keep their eye on the big picture. Pakatan exploited this sentiment very well in Hulu Selangor.

“People do feel that Barisan has done things and Najib has started some good policies. He has to continue with the good things. The goodwill is there but it has yet to translate into votes.

Sugar, spice and everything nice


But this is an election and politicians must promise the sky, if not heaven, to lock in the votes to ensure a victory.

On Friday, the forgotten Felda settlers in Sungai Buaya received RM50,000 each from the sale of land for development 15 years ago. The money was handed to them by the Prime Minister.

Not to be outdone, the Selangor Mentri Besar promised to acquire the land if the federal government failed to resolve the issue.

It is said that the Felda settlers make up a huge chunk of the 35,000 Malay voters and they are likely to determine the results today.

For the Chinese voters, who are perceived to be anti-establishment in the polls, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek has announced that Chinese independent school students are now eligible to apply for National Higher Education Corporation (PTPTN) loans.

It’s a big deal as education is an important issue for the Chinese community, and the announcement was in fact on the front pages of Chinese dailies.

The fight for the 16,891 Chinese voters was bitter as the PKR’s Zaid Ibrahim is banking on this segment to pull him through.

Zaid was probably picked because he is regarded as a liberal, never mind if he’s doubted by some of the Malay voters. But he would probably be liked by the Chinese voters.

He has admitted to owning racehorses but does not gamble. The Chinese voters would probably not care about this, but it would be challenged by Muslim voters.


There seems to be something for everybody and we hope someone is keeping track of these promises. Let’s hope there isn’t any caveat attached because those who made the promises must deliver them regardless of the outcome.


Malay rights champion Datuk Ibrahim Ali of Perkasa was campaigning for Kamala nathan, an Indian, and not Zaid Ibrahim. Of course, he had to explain at his ceramah why he wasn’t insisting on a Malay this time. But he’s a seasoned politician with answers for every nasty question.


Next stop – Sibu. The hotels and resthouses there are all fully booked already. There will be more promises and more goodies for sure.


‘Bedah siasat’ pengundi Cina sokong pembangkang



KUALA LUMPUR 26 April – Barisan Nasional (BN) perlu membuat satu ‘bedah siasat’ bagi mengenal pasti punca kenapa pengundi Cina enggan memberi sokongan pada parti tersebut semasa Pilihan Raya Kecil Parlimen Hulu Selangor, semalam.

Bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad berkata, ini kerana parti itu telah melakukan banyak perkara bagi membela nasib penduduk di Hulu Selangor termasuk kaum Cina sendiri.

Malah tegas beliau, Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak telah melakukan yang terbaik bagi mendapatkan sokongan penduduk di kawasan tersebut.

”BN menang tetapi majoritinya tidaklah seperti yang sepatutnya. Ini agak jelas dan kita nampak sokongan yang kurang daripada pengundi Cina.

”Bagaimanapun sokongan kaum Melayu dan India meningkat dan membolehkan BN mencapai kemenangan.

”Kita kena buat bedah siasat dan analisis supaya kita tahu apa masalahnya yang menyebabkan kita menang tetapi dengan majoriti yang tak seperti dijangkakan,” katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian kepada pemberita selepas berucap pada perbincangan “China Yang Kukuh – Implikasi dan Cabaran” anjuran Dewan Perdagangan dan Perindustrian Kebangsaan Malaysia (NCCIM) di sini hari ini.

Pada Pilihan Raya Kecil Parlimen Hulu Selangor semalam, calon BN, P. Kamalanathan berjaya menewaskan calon Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), Datuk Zaid Ibrahim dengan majoriti 1,725 undi apabila memperoleh 24,997 undi.

Mengulas mengenai kemenangan di Hulu Selangor, Dr. Mahathir berpendapat Najib telah berjaya menukar pandangan penduduk dan daya kepimpinannya kini diterima oleh segenap lapisan rakyat.

Beliau turut menegaskan, kempen-kempen parti yang dikaitkan dengan perkauman sudah tidak lagi memberi kesan kerana dalam tempoh berkenaan mereka boleh bercakap apa sahaja.

Dalam pada itu, Dr. Mahathir berkata, biarpun ada yang berpendapat bahawa politik berasaskan kaum akan berkurangan selepas pilihan raya umum lalu namun jelas bahawa ia semakin kuat berbanding sebelum ini.

Bagaimanapun, beliau percaya, harapan untuk melihat BN menang besar pada Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 nanti tetap ada.

”Ini kerana keputusan Pilihan Raya Umum 2008 bukan kerana parti BN tetapi kerana orang tertentu yang rakyat tidak suka,” katanya lagi.



Adilkah minta tolong BN tetapi undi pembangkang?

KEPUTUSAN Pilihan Raya Kecil Parlimen Hulu Selangor sekali lagi menampakkan Barisan Nasional (BN) memperolehi undi yang mengecewakan daripada pengundi-pengundi Cina.

Walaupun terdapat sedikit peningkatan berbanding 2008, namun ia tidaklah menyeluruh, sebaliknya menunjukkan bahawa masih terdapat penolakan terhadap kerajaan Barisan Nasional (BN).

Ini jelas apabila di peti undi Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Kuala Kubu Bahru yang pengundi Cina adalah majoriti (8,146 pengundi), BN tewas. Keputusan paling rendah dalam pilihan raya kecil berkenaan juga datang dari DUN tersebut iaitu bagi peti undi Rasa, apabila BN hanya mendapat 49 undi manakala Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) 319 undi.

Sama ada hendak diakui atau tidak, MCA dan Gerakan masih gagal meyakinkan pengundi Cina untuk kembali kepada BN. Keadaan itu berbeza dengan DAP yang dilihat pemimpinnya mendapat sambutan hangat di DUN tersebut.

Pendirian pengundi-pengundi Cina di dalam memilih BN masih lagi berada di tahap yang rendah dan segala-galanya kerana di Hulu Selangor, Penasihat PKR, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim awal-awal lagi sudah menabur ‘racun’ di situ.

Antara lain beliau mahu pengundi Cina meminta apa sahaja kepada kerajaan BN tetapi menyebelahi PKR ketika mengundi. Mungkin inilah yang dilakukan oleh pengundi-pengundi Cina di Hulu Selangor.

Walaupun pelbagai tuntutan termasuklah mendirikan sekolah jenis kebangsaan Cina diluluskan oleh kerajaan BN tetapi keseluruhan mereka tidak membalasnya dalam bentuk undi.

Mereka tetap tertarik dan terpengaruh dengan propaganda pembangkang yang sudah pastinya mengamalkan politik sempit dalam memastikan pengundi Cina tidak menyebelahi BN.

Keadaan itu menunjukkan apa yang dikatakan oleh Timbalan Presiden MCA, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai bahawa 50 peratus pengundi Cina akan menyebelahi BN tidak menjadi kenyataan, sebaliknya dakwaan pembangkang bahawa mereka menguasai 75 peratus undi kelompok tersebut adalah benar.

Oleh itu timbul persoalan, apakah selepas ini dalam kempen-kempen pilihan raya, BN perlu memberi tumpuan kepada pengundi Cina dan memenuhi apa sahaja tuntutan mereka tetapi tidak mendapat apa-apa undi?

BN perlu faham bahawa parti itu bernasib baik kerana pengundi Melayu dan India memberikan sokongan padu kepadanya. Jika peningkatan sokongan tidak berlaku di kalangan kedua-dua masyarakat berkenaan, sudah pasti BN akan kecundang di Hulu Selangor.

Adalah sesuatu yang malang, apabila dalam keadaan kerajaan berusaha bersungguh-sungguh membela nasib rakyat melalui gagasan 1Malaysia, Rakyat Didahulukan, Pencapaian Diutamakan, pengundi Cina masih belum mahu menyebelahi BN. Mereka masih dilihat mahu mengekalkan sokongan kepada parti-parti pembangkang yang mereka tahu tidak mampu melakukan apa-apa untuk kehidupan mereka.

Pada 2008, kita akui mereka berhak menolak BN kerana pelbagai kemelut yang berlaku ketika itu. Tetapi sekarang kepimpinan negara berada di bawah Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak dan Perdana Menteri sendiri sudah menunjukkan komitmennya untuk memastikan semua rakyat mendapat pembelaan sewajarnya.

Majoriti pengundi Cina di Hulu Selangor bukannya tidak tahu perkara ini, tetapi mereka masih mahu kekal bersama-sama pembangkang.

Justeru sudah tiba masanya BN menukar strateginya dengan memastikan segala peruntukan dan bantuan hanya diberikan kepada peti undi-peti undi yang pengundi Cina benar-benar menyokong BN.

Kepada kawasan-kawasan yang peti undi dilihat ketara menyokong pembangkang, biarlah mereka meminta bantuan dan peruntukan daripada pakatan berkenaan terutamanya di Selangor.

Mungkin keadaan ini kelihatan tidak adil tetapi bagaimana dengan sikap mereka yang hanya tahu meminta itu dan ini tetapi bila mengundi masih mahu menyebelahi pembangkang? Adakah itu adil kepada BN?



MCA, Gerakan perlu beri perhatian serius

JOHOR BAHRU 26 April – MCA dan Gerakan diminta memberi perhatian serius terhadap sikap masyarakat Cina yang kurang memberi sokongan kepada Barisan Nasional (BN) pada Pilihan Raya Kecil Parlimen Hulu Selangor.

Sambil menyifatkan kemenangan BN sebagai amat bermakna dan menunjukkan sokongan rakyat terhadap Perdana Menteri, namun kemenangan itu perlu disusuli dengan kerja keras termasuk mengenal pasti punca kekurangan undi masyarakat Cina.

Dua ahli Majlis Tertinggi (MT) UMNO, Datuk Seri Mohd. Ali Rustam dan Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman berpendapat, trend dan corak pengundian tersebut perlu dikaji agar BN dapat meningkatkan sokongan pada pilihan raya umum akan datang.

Mohd. Ali menegaskan, keputusan semalam jelas menunjukkan undi kaum Cina agak berkurangan dan ini mungkin disebabkan terdapat faktor yang menyebabkan perkara itu berlaku.

“Banyak peti undi di kawasan majoriti pengundi kaum Cina kurang cenderung kepada BN.

“Kita berhadap masyarakat Cina dapat memberi isyarat yang betul kerana BN hendak membantu semua rakyat tanpa mengira keturunan kerana dasar BN adalah untuk semua orang,” katanya.


Mohd. Ali memberitahu, beliau melihat masih terdapat sentimen di kalangan masyarakat Cina dengan memberi undi kepada calon BN bagi kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri manakala mengundi calon pembangkang bagi kerusi Parlimen.

Menurutnya, perkara itu perlu ditangani BN melalui semua parti komponen dengan berusaha melakukan sesuatu bagi mengembalikan sokongan pengundi Cina.

”Bagi kita setiap pembangunan dan bantuan yang dibawa oleh BN bersifat untuk semua dan tidak memilih keturunan.

”MCA, Gerakan dan parti komponen BN lain boleh mengambil perhatian masalah berkenaan agar sokongan BN terus diperkukuhkan pada masa depan,” ujarnya.

Ghani pula memberitahu, pola pengundian menerusi peti-peti undi di kawasan kampung, kampung baru, luar bandar dan bandar perlu diteliti kerana ia boleh membantu memahami pengundi sama ada berkaitan isu nasional atau setempat.



Krisis MCA jejas pengundi Cina – Soi Lek

KUALA LUMPUR 26 April – Presiden MCA, Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek hari ini mengakui krisis dalaman parti itu antara penyebab masih ramai pengundi Cina tidak memilih Barisan Nasional (BN) pada Pilihan Raya Kecil Parlimen Hulu Selangor, semalam.

Menurut beliau, hanya 30 peratus pengundi Cina di Parlimen itu mengundi BN mungkin disebabkan oleh keyakinan mereka terhadap MCA belum pulih sepenuhnya.

Katanya lagi, perbezaan pendapat antara bekas Pengerusi MCA Hulu Selangor, Datuk Ch’ng Toh Eng dan penyandang sekarang, Wong Koon Mun sedikit sebanyak turut menjejaskan sokongan terhadap BN.

”Bahkan pertikaian itu juga menyebabkan ahli-ahli akar umbi MCA dan penduduk di Hulu Selangor turut memboikot parti.

”Ia merupakan satu isyarat, jika mereka (pemimpin MCA Hulu Selangor) tidak mengetepikan perbezaan antara mereka, maka MCA akan menjadi bakul sampah politik,” katanya kepada Utusan Malaysia di sini hari ini.

Semalam, BN memberikan isyarat awal kebangkitan semua parti itu di Selangor apabila menawan kembali Parlimen Hulu Selangor menerusi calonnya, P. Kamalanathan yang menewaskan calon Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), Datuk Zaid Ibrahim dengan majoriti 1,725 undi.

Bagaimanapun, Setiausaha Agung BN, Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor mendedahkan walaupun menang, kebanyakan pengundi Cina tidak menyokong BN – sama seperti Pilihan Raya Umum 2008.

”Kita perlu melihat di mana silap kita. Saya akan berjumpa dengan parti-parti komponen untuk membincangkan perkara ini. Bagaimanapun kita gembira kerana pengundi India kembali menyokong BN. Begitu juga dengan pengundi Melayu,” katanya.

Menurut Soi Lek, selain masalah dalaman MCA, sokongan kaum Cina yang lebih memihak kepada pakatan pembangkang di kawasan tersebut menunjukkan mereka tidak mempedulikan isu peribadi Zaid.

”Walaupun isu Zaid sebagai kaki botol diperbesarkan pada kempen di situ nampaknya ia tidak menjejaskan sokongan pengundi Cina kepada PKR,” katanya.

Sehubungan itu, Soi Lek menegaskan, MCA perlu mengusahakan anjakan paradigma yang lebih menyeluruh bagi mendekati masyarakat Cina yang mementingkan isu lebih besar berkaitan negara.

”Selain kami perlu menyelesaikan masalah dalaman MCA Hulu Selangor, parti juga perlu merancang pelan yang lebih menyeluruh bagi mengembalikan keyakinan pengundi Cina.

”Kita perlu menilai diri dan melihat kembali keperluan semasa selepas 50 tahun merdeka,” katanya.



Pengundi Cina masih merajuk



Di sebalik kejayaan itu, timbul satu perkara yang merimaskan BN apabila analisis menunjukkan pengundi Cina masih tegar hati mereka untuk terus memberikan sokongan kepada calon PKR, Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.

Analisis yang dilakukan mendapati hanya 30 peratus pengundi Cina menyokong calon BN, P. Kamalanathan.

Kenapa hal ini berlaku, sedangkan jentera BN bekerja keras mendekati pengundi Cina termasuk menjawab segala fitnah dan tohmahan tidak berasas yang dilontarkan oleh pakatan pembangkang khususnya PKR.

Apakah ini menunjukkan keyakinan pengundi Cina terhadap BN semakin merosot atau ia seolah-olah memberi isyarat bahawa kepimpinan baru MCA yang diterajui oleh Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek tidak diterima.

Sebab itulah, mereka membulatkan hati memilih Zaid, apatah lagi pemilihan Zaid sebagai calon diputuskan oleh DAP.

Presiden MCA, Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek menjelaskan kepada Utusan Malaysia, krisis dalaman parti itu yang masih bersisa membuatkan pengundi Cina tidak mahu memilih BN pada pilihan raya kecil tersebut.

Jelasnya, ia mungkin juga disebabkan oleh keyakinan mereka terhadap MCA belum pulih sepenuhnya.

Selain itu, katanya, perbezaan kepimpinan antara bekas Pengerusi MCA Hulu Selangor, Datuk Ch’ng Toh Eng dan penyandang sekarang, Wong Koon Mun sedikit sebanyak turut menjejaskan sokongan terhadap BN.

“Bahkan pertikaian itu juga menyebabkan ahli-ahli akar umbi MCA dan penduduk Cina di Hulu Selangor mengambil tindakan memboikot parti.

“Ia merupakan satu isyarat, jika mereka (pemimpin MCA Hulu Selangor) masih berbeza pendapat, maka MCA akan terus menjadi bakul sampah politik,” katanya ketika dihubungi, semalam.

Selain itu, khabar angin bertiup kencang dengan mengatakan ahli-ahli MCA di peringkat akar umbi di Hulu Selangor merupakan penyokong kuat bekas Presiden MCA, Tan Sri Ong Ka Ting.

Disebabkan itu, ahli-ahli parti tidak mengundi calon BN bagi memberi isyarat bahawa mereka tidak akan memberi sokongan penuh kepada penyandang nombor satu sekarang, Soi Lek.

Walau bagaimanapun, penjelasan Soi Lek mengenai kira-kira 70 peratus pengundi Cina memboikot MCA dan enggan mengundi calon BN disebabkan perselisihan dalaman parti tersebut dilihat tidak kukuh.

Penganalisis Politik, Datuk Cheah See Kian menafikan kecenderungan pengundi Cina terhadap parti pembangkang disebabkan penduduk bosan terhadap MCA yang dilanda krisis dalaman.

Jelasnya, selepas PRU Ke-12 sehingga hari ini, MCA dilihat tidak berubah serta tidak memajukan diri untuk kebaikan masyarakat Cina. Ini menyebabkan masyarakat Cina berasa kecewa terhadap MCA.

Beliau mendakwa, kaum Cina kini kurang berminat bercakap mengenai isu perkauman atau agama, sebaliknya mereka lebih mementingkan parti dan berharap parti mempunyai pandangan tegas terhadap isu yang lebih besar berkaitan negara.

“Kaum Cina kini lebih mementingkan isu negara seperti perkembangan ekonomi, pembasmian rasuah, ketelusan dan kehakiman yang adil. Kaum Cina mahu pemimpin yang boleh membantu pembangunan ekonomi negara dan meningkatkan taraf hidup kaum itu,” katanya kepada Utusan Malaysia.

See Kian berkata, walaupun Perdana Menteri sering mewar-warkan gagasan 1Malaysia, namun masyarakat Cina masih tidak merasakan ada perubahan.

Dalam pada itu, beliau mendakwa, Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia (Perkasa) menjadi penghalang untuk mencapai gagasan 1Malaysia.

“Perkasa dilihat menghalang kejayaan gagasan 1Malaysia dan menyebabkan masyarakat Cina berfikir kerajaan (BN) kekal seperti dahulu,” katanya.

Sementara itu, Presiden Southern Kolej, Thock Kiah Wah berkata, kaum Cina hilang keyakinan terhadap MCA kerana parti itu gagal menyelesaikan masalah masyarakat Cina dengan baik.

Bahkan, katanya, MCA tidak mempertahankan pendapat dan tegas dalam menangani isu-isu negara.

“Pandangan kaum Cina kini tidak lagi dihadkan kepada sesebuah parti yang mewakili masyarakat Cina untuk mempertahankan keperluan asas mereka. Parti yang disukai adalah parti yang layak mewakili Malaysia dan mempertahankan ketelusan serta keadilan di negara ini. Ini antara ciri-ciri yang tidak ada pada MCA,” katanya.

Beliau berkata, jika BN mahu memenangi semula keyakinan masyarakat Cina, mereka perlu mewujudkan sebuah kerajaan yang seimbang, adil tanpa mengutamakan kaum-kaum tertentu sahaja.



Sabotaj antara punca sokongan pengundi Cina merosot

29/04/2010 8:26pm

KUALA LUMPUR 29 April – Unsur sabotaj di kalangan anggota MCA merupakan antara faktor menyebabkan kemerosotan sokongan pengundi Cina kepada Barisan Nasional (BN) pada Pilihan Raya Kecil Parlimen Hulu Selangor, Ahad lalu.

Presiden MCA, Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek berkata, unsur sabotaj itu berlaku ketika beliau turun padang ke pekan Kuala Kubu Baharu pada hari pengundian dan mendapati tiada ahli dari dua cawangan MCA di situ membantu meraih undi di pusat pengundian di situ.

“Ia mungkin menjadi salah satu faktor kerana sekiranya mereka tidak datang dan membantu, saya fikir mereka juga tidak mengundi kepada BN,” katanya kepada pemberita selepas mempengerusikan mesyuarat Majlis Presiden di Wisma MCA di sini hari ini.

Berikutan insiden itu, Dr. Soi Lek telah mengarahkan Setiausaha Agung parti, Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha, yang juga ketua penyelaras MCA pusat bagi pilihan raya kecil itu, menyiapkan satu laporan dan analisis berkaitan keputusan pilihan raya kecil tersebut.

Katanya, parti itu akan membincangkan tindakan susulan selepas menerima laporan itu dalam tempoh masa tiga minggu. – Bernama

Improved Chinese support for BN

KUALA LUMPUR: The 28% Chinese support in the Hulu Selangor by-election is an improvement though it was not up to mark, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

Citing a survey, he said that the support had been around 14% after Selangor fell to Pakatan Raykat.

Chinese support for Barisan during the 2008 general election had been 35%.

Dr Chua said that the party would conduct a three-day brainstorming session in Port Dickson from June 18 to further analyse the trend and prepare for the next general election.

“We want to ensure the Chinese understand the importance of the 1Malaysia concept for all Malaysians, the New Economic Model and that this is the best opportunity to support our Prime Minister for his inclusive policy,” he told reporters after chairing the presidential council meeting here yesterday.

Dr Chua said secretary-general Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha, who headed the party’s election machinery in Hulu Selangor, would prepare a report on the analysis of the by-election within three weeks.

The scope of the analysis would also cover talk of sabotage by certain branches and grassroots leaders, he revealed.

“responding well” to 1Malaysia? How come only 30% Chinese in Hulu Selangor voted BN? The Ng Si Hooi article said it was even only 28% – 2% increase from 2008.

How was it “an important victory”? The PM must be desperate if an increase of less than 3% of those who voted and of 2 – 4% more Chinese voted over 2008?

How to get unity when the Malays are broken into 3 groups, the Chinese, too, even the Indians. And how the Malays, Chinese, Indians and others want to unite?

Orang Lama,

Some people have said that the mistake started right from before Merdeka when political parties were formed and allowed to be registered along racial lines. But could it be a mistake when human beings had existed along racial lines all throughout history. It was the pursuit of the interest of the family, the tribe, the community or race. When nations or races of human beings grouped up further, then states and countries were born. But human beings always think of the interest of the race first. Hence you have UMNO, MCA and MIC.

Of course you have differences among the racial groups and they split. Then you have PAS, DAP and some other parties. No single multi-racial political party has succeeded in drawing popular, truly multi-racial support. Each one party exploits the people, drive wedges into the sentiments of the people such that the division becomes deeper and more widespread. Some say there’s beauty and strength in a multi-racial society, in a multi-party country, there’s unity in diversity. But here’s what we have become now. So divided, so diversified in interests, hopes and aspirations. National aspirations take a back seat, racial or group aspirations in the forefront. Indeed, unity is far away from reality and racial polarisation increasing.

Nevertheless, we have to continue doing whatever we can to forge unity. At Kempen SSS we try to promote the concept of single-stream schooling or Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua (SSS) and hope that others would join us in the forging of a united and cohesive Bangsa Malaysia, one race, one nation. That we hope can be achieved through having only one type of schools, not three types as existing now.

If you loyal to your country, you do whatever to get the country united, isn’t it? You be nice to fellow citizens, you give and take.

At same time you also expect the country to look after you. Not too much curi-curi, ragut-ragut, Mat Rempit, potholes on road, fair share of jobs, education.

Problems comes when we iri hati one fellow is kaya, another fellow get scholarship or contract. We bagi bagi lah. Give some take some. Cannot give only or take only.

Indeed, give and take is the keyword, the buzzword. Nothing else, really. If all Malaysians are willing to give and take, most of our problems would be over. We just follow the Constitution. The non-Malays hvae got their citizenship, the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawk have their Special Position. The attempt to restructure society and let the Malays and Bumis catch up with the Chinese to a reasonable level, then presto, we have unity, peace and uninterrupted progress.

Alas, things are not so rosy as that. Reducing crime rate is not so difficult as reducing the grudges that exist among the races. The Malays and the Bumiputeras grudge the Chijese for their wealth and educational advancement. The Chinese and Indians grudge the Malays and the Bumiputeras for their Special Position. They often blame the New Economic Policy instead of its implementation. Corruption, cronyism and nepotism had been prevailing and worsened matters further.

Let us keep on calling on the Government to carry on with policies that are beneficial to all sectors of the population and be guided by the Constitution in formulating policy actions.

Loyalty is not negotiable. It cannot be made an object of trade. It should be inherent in all citizens.

Ancient Roman Emperors would have thrown those not loyal to the lions. Emperor Chin Shih Hunag Di would have sent the disloyal to forced labour gangs constructing the Great Wall of China. Yet, one disgruntled Chinese general in charge of the north eastern borders opened the gates and the invading Manchu Army literally walked into China unopposed and started their foreign rule in China (Manchuria became a part of China only after World War II) for a few hundred years until early 20th Century. Watch out for that kind of citizens.

The problem in modern times is that business people only think in business terms. Give me what I want and I’ll give what you want. That’s OK for business but not for what the country wants of you. It’s the obligation of all citizens to be loyal, to respect and live by the Constitution of the country. There’s no two-ways about that. Otherwise the country would be in tatters. Not much else to be given out to the citizens.

No doubt people think in terms of getting equality, fairness and all those things associated with democratic values. But the Constitution has been discussed, debated and approved by a Parliament represented by democratically elected representatives. There’s no question of unfairness as far as Chinese schools and Article 152 on the role of Bahasa Malaysia, and Article 153 on the Special Position of the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak are concerned. Like freedom, equality and fairness have their limits. The limits have been clearly defined in the Constitution. The Constitution should be respected and lived with. It’s the minimum prerequisite for loyalty among citizens. It’s an essential ingredient in forging national unity.

We need to think of how to get the message across. We need to categorise those people who we need to get the message across, perhaps 1. the hardcores 2. the middle path and fence sitters 3. the least educated and ignorant.

The hardcores are those educated and not so well educated but believing in or fully exposed to anarchistic ideas, not respecting the Constitution, not accepting the Social Contract entered into among the Malay and non-Malay leaders at Merdeka, not recognising such leaders, not thankful for the Malays having agreed to citizenship for the non-Malays, not respecting the Special Position of the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak which was the quid pro quo for their citizenship right, opposed to affirmative action which was designed to reduce the huge wealth and educational gap between the majority Malays and Bumiputeras and the 23% Chinese. The promoters of the vernacular schools belong to this category. They simply are not willing to talk about Bahasa Malaysia being the medium of instruction in schools when Article 152 clearly states that BM is the National Language of the country.

These hardcores also include those sympathetic to communist Chin Peng wanting to enter and die in Malaysia, even calling the communist terrorists of the Communis Party of Malaya as nationalists, when in fact historians and others have called those fellows communist terrorits, Chin Peng continuing to fight the democratically elected government after the British left, taking instructions, weapons and other supplies from China and Communist International (Comintern), agreeing that Malaya be under the suzerainty of Communist China if and when he succeeded bringing the government down by force. We need to ask the Government to deal with this lot in assertive ways like under the Internal Security Act, the Sedition Act and the Police Act when they hold demonstrations without permits, etc. Chin Peng and his cahouts ceased to be a menace when the Government continued harassing them militarily and psychologically with psywar campaigns, etc. If the hardcores continue to be allowed to say and do things practically unchecked like during the period of Pak Lah’s administration, we will never get the message across to this lot. Under Tun Dr Mahathir’s time, a few prominent ones were hauled in under ISA and one was jailed for 18 months on sedition or some other charges. Firmness and assertiveness is the language these hardcores understand. Anything else would be taken as a weakness of the authorities and they will run over everybody’s heads and unity will be farther away that way.

The second category are those who we need to pay special attention on. We can keep on trying to make them understand that the ways of the hardcores do not bring any good to the country, in fact lead to further polarisation among the races and the future of our children and grandchildren become perilously at stake. We need persuasion. explanation, discussion and whatever that will make them stay away from the influence of the hardcores and instead see reason as much as possible. We know that politics play an important part. But too much politics and politicking damage efforts at bringing about unity. Look at Hulu Selangor by-election. Despite all the promises, even RM3 million for the construction of a new Chinese school – going against the principle that those not respecting Article 152 should not be encouraged – they still voted the opposition which includes quite a bit of the hardcores. Loyalty is not negotiable but politicians should be helping to put this message across.

…. “”Give me what I want, then only I give what the country wants”….? ….?????

How many subscribe to this? For how long already? Who? From which jungle?

Irrespective of the number …. for how long … who … and from what jungle ….. the country (any country) should spit back …. and answer “…. this country do not need you …. this country wants your citizenship back …. then this country shall give you what you need …. a one-way ticket to join your Penangite brothers who tore their Malaysian citizenship and turned themselves into some persona-non-grata stranded on some strange shores in the west.

Quite a number of those who maintain that stand could not stand it any longer when finding that they cannot always get what they want before they give what the country wants. So they absconded. Australia, Canada and Britain have been the traditional receiving pots. Many from Penang absconded to UK some months back, tearing their passports or renouncing their Malaysian citizenship at the Malaysian High Commission, on the wrong advice that doing so would enhance their chances of getting permanent stay. To their horror, they found it not so, resulting in hundreds of them being stranded at the airport for weeks and others, including one not-so-successful Penang architect, ending up washing dishes and exploited by Chinese restaurants in Soho and elsewhere in England.

They of course maintain their ways even after absconding to other countries. The result is that one would find the local Australians in Melbourne, for example, disliking them and often tension arises among those immigrants and the locals there. These are Malaysians of at least questionable loyalty – what else do you call fellows who tore their passports or or sell all their properties in Malaysia and migrate elsewhere. We don’t lose such so-called Malaysians as they would not have contributed to the spirit of togetherness and unity we want in this country.

“The by-election also proves that the single-minded focus on promoting Malay rights is a vote-winner with the Malay heartland. This is worrying.”

Why is it worrying to this Malay reporter, I wonder. What is wrong with giving assurances to the Malays on what they deserve. Especially when the PM has been pandering to the Chinese for so long. RM3 million to build a new Chinese school when Rasa Chinese mostly did not vote BN – only 2% increase from 2008. And humiliating the Constitution regarding Bahasa Malaysia because Chinese schools use Mandarin as medium of instruction.

That reporter may be carried away by DS Najib leaning a lot on the Chinese since he took over power. He should have a proper perspective and balance in his reporting. Najib may be carried away by the zealousness in wanting a bigger majority and, if possible, 2/3 Parliamentary majority. But reporters need not have any political agenda.

Promoting Malay rights and interests is absolutely acceptable as the Malays have only 18% of the wealth of the country and a highly disproportionate positions in the various professions. After the May 1969 racial riots, affirmative action was begun under the New Economic Policy to restructure society, namely to bridge the huge economic and educational gap between the majority Malays and the 23% Chinese who have been controlling the economy. On this premise alone there is nothing worrying about promoting Malay rights and interests. What more when the Malays hold the majority votes in the country that all politicians must want to get. Politicians must not take the Malays for granted and there must be reasonableness among all Malaysians for the sake of unity.

Ada yang mengatakan bahawa MCA dan Gerakan tidak lagi dapat menarik sokongan orang Cina. Banyak orang Cina sudah terbawa dan terikut propaganda pembangkang, terutama penganut DAP, yang telah menggunakan politik luar biasa sejak masa PAP, Lee Kuan Yew dan Singapura masih didalam Malaysia lagi 1963-65. Lee Kuan Yew dengan cogan kata “Malaysian Malaysia” yang subversif kapada Perkara 153 Kedudukan Istimewa Melayu telah memulakan suasana perkauman yang ketara dan merbahaya pada masa itu sehingga Tengku A Rahman mengenyahkannya dan Singapore dari Malaysia ditahun 1965. DAP timbul sebagai serpihan dari PAP dan menganuti cogan kata “Malaysian Malaysia” itu. Konsep itu juga amat rasis, cara dipropagandakan juga rasis. Bila pembangkang menang besar dipilihan raya umum 1969, penganut-penganut DAP berarak dengan kereta dan lori keKampong Bahru, Kuala Lumpur, menjeritkan kata-kata dan menunjukkan kelakuan yang menyakit hati Melayu diKampong Bahru. Maka meletus pergaduhan sehingga keadaan dharurat diistiharkan dan Parlimen digantungkan.

Keadaan pulih, Dasar Ekonomi Bahru dilaksanakan mulai 1970 bagi mengurangkan sebab asasi (jurang ekonomi dan pendidikan antara Melayu dan Cina) yang menyetuskan pergaduhan itu. Pentadbiran negara baik salepas itu, ISA, Akta Hasutan dan Akta Polis digunakan bagi mengawal keterlaluan. Malangnya dipemerintahan Pak Lah, kawalan begitu longgar sehingga politik rasis dan keterlaluan timbul. Pemerintahan itu dipanggil Tun Dr Mahathir sebagai “flip-flopping, auto-piloting” dan dilabel berbagai lagi oleh lain-lain pihak. Parti pembangkang dibiarkan berkata dan melakukan hampir apa sahaja. ISA dan Akta Hasutan hampir tiada digunakan dan pemerintah melayan desakan pembangkang supaya memansuhkan ISA sekurang-kurangnya sehingga mahu memindanya. Maka naik mukalah pembangkang dan nampaklah kapada orang-orang Cina bahawa pembangkang semangkin kuat dan timbullah hasrat yang lebih kuat mereka menyokong pembangkang.

So’al besarnya ialah: adakah politik rasis dan keterlaluan ini boleh mendatangkan persepaduan. Kami khuatir tidak. Antara cara mendapatkan persepaduan ialah melalui sekolah satu aliran atau Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua (SSS).

most of us, majority malays included do not really enjoy the “give me what i want” business from the government. those who get what they want from the government are a handful few, non-malays included. we all should give what the country wants from us irregardless getting we want or not. in life we can have a lot of “wants”, but how many “what we want” do we get ? give me a frank answer…please.

what we want we must work for. how quick we get what we want depends on how fast and hard we are WIILING to work on what we want.

somebody have got to be telling those who keep asking “give me what i want, then i give what the country wants” type citizen the truth. the way i see it, it is all political manifests misinterpreted to and by the target group. the question is how come ? we all got to remember the target group is constantly being courted by word twisting forked tounge political opponents which capitalize on the the ruling coalition’s flaws and weaknesses. they have always been that way from the start. this has almost brought the country to its knees once.

we have not been effective in our counter-argument to the word twisting forked tounge counterparts’ messages sent to the target group. we have had success in the past. why do we fail now ? we are economically a whole lot better today than say a decade ago to make an effective counter argument. perhaps we are all not as hardworking like a decade ago that we haven’t already got what we want and that we have to ask from the government to have what we want in order to give back what the country wants ? the country should ask Ah Lek, Ka Ting, Soi Lek, Jui Meng (he defected), Kong Choy, Tee Kiat, Tsu Koon and Samy. They have failed.

we cannot buy loyalty with money. loyalty is not business transaction. we all have been exhausted by this question that remain unanswered. why no loyalty still, what is lacking ?

unity is tolerance. we have wronged our children that they now cannot accurately live this unity we have had earlier. or did we ever have it ? or we didn’t mean what we said then and it is showing now ?

You have raised very interesting points – making counter-arguments, explaining not just Government policies but also civic issues to the populace. During the period of the Communist insurgency in this country, various campaigns were carried out, including psychological warfare (psywar) and winning hearts and minds. These were reinforced by controlling the movements of the population by creating New Villages controlled by security forces and establishing curfews.

No doubt there is no more any communist insurgency. However, there are Malaysians, particularly members of an opposition party, who support the communist terrorist leader Chin Peng’s request to enter Malaysia and die in this country. There are also the subversives and seditious ones who try to create trouble by various means including bringing up racial issues, criticising the New Economic Policy in such a way as to appear questioning the Special Position of the Malays under Article 153 of the Constitution, which is protected under the Sedition Act. These people are hardcores, who do not respect the Social Contract entered into by the Malay and non-Malay leaders at Merdeka, who have not much respect for the Constitution of the Country, who do not accept the Establishment line, who would find anything they can to weaken the party in power and the Government they run. They go to the extent of accusing the civics courses conducted by the Bureau Tata Negara of the Prime Minister’s Department as brain-washing, etc. They are chauvinistic and racist, trying to criticise anything Malay or any institution representing Malay dominance, including the Police, the Military and the MACC. They even go to the extent of accusing the MACC of responsibility over Teoh Beng Hock’s death when the cause of the man’s death is not yet determined even until to-day. They consort with secret societies, thugs and gangsters (the Underworld) within the premises of the Selangor State Government, as alleged by one PKR ADUN and one PKR MP.

While the Government must use all the resources at the disposal of the Ministry of Information and Mass Media to explain, counter-argue, discuss, persuade and try to convince the above-said kind of Malaysians, more needs be done to reign in the hardcores. These must include use of the power available to the Government, namely the ISA, the Sedition Act and the Police Act. These had worked all those years prior to Pak Lah’s administration. They should work now if used judiciously. The problem is the attitude of the Government which may want to appear liberal, which appears to have been leaning on those people, many of whom flout the rules, for political support and for votes. Let us hope and pray that it would not lead to building a time bomb like the situation prior to the race riots of 1969. Let us do whatever we can to help avoid that. Let us keep calling for SSS.

“Gua caya lu, gua caya lu”. Ini juga satu mentaliti yang menjadi masalah sebab mengakibatkan selalu dipermainkan. Tengku A Rahman dikatakan berpendirian bahawa maanusia itu baik sehingga dibuktikan tidak baik. Mana boleh. Bila sudah ada bukti nyata, nasi sudah jadi bubur. Sengat “Malaysian Malaysia” bisanya sudah merebak. Banyak yang tak pedulikan sejarah tanah air ini, mahukan sejarah bermula hanya dari tarikh Merdeka 1957, yang dipersetujukan dan dijanjikan di Kontrak Sosial pun diketepikan. Lee Kuan Yew amat jahat niatnya, slogan “Malaysian Malaysia”nya subversif kapada Kedudukan Istimewa Melayu diArtikel 153.

Dia seorang peguam, tahu apa yang disebut didalam Perlembagaan, tetapi sengaja mengungkit Kedudukan Istimewa Melayu. Pada hal mereka sudah dapat menjadi rakyat dan balsan baginya ialah menghormati Artikel 153 itu. Tengku A Rahman pula diamkan tindak tanduk Lee Kuan Yew pada permulaannya. Sehingga sudah menjadi keterlaluan. Bila nyata bahawa Lee Kuan Yew subversif dari segi itu, Tengku A Rahman pula kononnya “menendang” Singapura keluar dari Malaysia. Rugi berganda ganda kita. Amat bodoh punya kerja. Dahulu anak raja Johor berikan Singapura kapada British, British beri balik kapada kita melalui Malaysia, maka sibodoh Tengku A Rahman memeberi Singapura kapada Cina dengan sewenang-wenangnya sahaja.

Maka Pak Lah pula melepaskan Pulau Batu Putih. Bersetuju pergi keMahkamah Antarabangsa dengan tidak mengakji perkara itu sedalam-dalamnya. Dan sekarang timbul pula perkara Limbang. Maka kita perlu berwaspada supaya negara tidak terjual. Kita perlu dapatkan pemimpin yang boleh dihormati rakyat. Kita perlu persepaduan dan perlukan pemimpin yang boleh membawa kita kapadanya. Satu Sekolah untuk Semua (SSS) adalah satu cara yang boleh membawa kita kapadanya.

“majoritinya tidaklah seperti yang sepatutnya. Ini agak jelas dan kita nampak sokongan yang kurang daripada pengundi Cina”, said Dato Seri Najib.

“MCA dan Gerakan masih gagal meyakinkan pengundi Cina untuk kembali kepada BN”, said Utusan article above.

“The Chinese community in HS voted for Pakatan solidly”, said reporter Karim Raslan from The Star.

“krisis dalaman parti itu antara penyebab masih ramai pengundi Cina tidak memilih Barisan Nasional”, said MCA President.

“Unsur sabotaj di kalangan anggota MCA merupakan antara faktor menyebabkan kemerosotan sokongan pengundi Cina kepada Barisan Nasional”, he said some more.

“seolah-olah memberi isyarat bahawa kepimpinan baru MCA .. tidak diterima. Sebab itulah, mereka membulatkan hati memilih Zaid, apatah lagi pemilihan Zaid sebagai calon diputuskan oleh DAP”, said Lee Hooi Boon, Pengarang Utusan.

“Umno politicians have been asking why MCA has been unable to do its part in delivering the Chinese vote. They are puzzled that the Chinese could not be moved by the Government’s promise of a RM3mil grant for the Chinese school there. One Umno politician had asked rather rhetorically: “What more do the Chinese want?” – said Joceline Tan from The Star.

“biarpun ada yang berpendapat bahawa politik berasaskan kaum akan berkurangan selepas pilihan raya umum lalu namun jelas bahawa ia semakin kuat berbanding sebelum ini.” said Tun Dr Mahathir.

Like this when can we get unity in the country?

Tidak nyata sama ada “sokongan yang kurang daripada pengundi Cina” itu disebabkan propaganda pembangkang yang kuat, atau bencikan MCA yang kucar kacir politik dalaman partinya, atau perasaan tidak sukakan pemerintah yang melambangkan kuasa Melayu, atau perasaan chuvinis mahukan apa sahaja yang boleh dapat dengan tidak membalas budi. Kesemuanya itu membawa tanda so’al adakah boleh persepaduan timbul dari pemikiran atau pendirian saperti itu.

We are as doubtful as you are about the situation. We agree with Tun Dr Mahathir’s statement that race-based politics is stronger now than before. Race-based politics had been there since before independence. TDM himself acknowledged it in his blog. The authorities had allowed the registration of race-based political parties when Malayans started talking independence with the British not long after the British came back to rule after World War II. Thus UMNO, MCA and MIC came into being. Though political parties were race-based but politics were not really conducted on racial lines at that time. It was fine and the fervour of getting independence saw us through for many years.

However, when Malaysia was formed in 1963, the chauvinist Lee Kuan Yew and PAP started race-based politics by his slogan of the so-called “Malaysian Malaysia” which was subversive to and encroached upon the Special Position of the Malays and was resented by the Malays. When Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore were “kicked out of Malaysia” in 1965, his ardent follower Lim Kit Siang started a splinter party, the DAP. They continued the chauvinistic line and race-based politics came to the forefront of political life in the country. Things came to a situation that racial riots occurred in 1969.

We must avoid another 1969. We must find leaders brave enough to carry out policies that would really bring about unity. The underlying reasons for the lack of unity must be fully determined and fully explained to the people. Measures to bridge the economic and educational gap among the various races must be strengthened until they are reduced to a reasonable extent. These have been the long standing bone of contention since 1969. Grudges and counter grudges have been persisting. The entire resources of the Ministry of Informaton and Mass Media must be utilised to explain, discuss, argue and counter argue the measures taken. Those exploiting racial issues to the extent of being seditious must be brought to book under the Sedition Act. The Government must not be pandering to the wishes of political parties or selected voters pureply to gain votes.

The single-stream schooling or Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua (SSS) needs to be implemented. The vernacular schools have plainly been inconsistent with Article 152 of the Constitution and have been another source of discontent among the majority of Malaysians who want Bahasa Malaysia be respected. SSS would afford children the sense of togetherness in a multi-racial atmosphere, the development of common hopes and aspirations so necessary in our multi-racial country.

Tapi sebenarnya jika sesetengah diaorang sedia menerima (orang tempatan dan arus orang tempatan) sebagaimana diaorang diterima (oleh orang tempatan dan arus orang tempatan), dan diaorang memberi balik (ketaatan tidak berbelah bagi kepada negara ini) sebagaimana diaorang diberi (layanan, kelayakan dan kelumayanan) oleh negara ini apa yang diaorang tidak dapat dari negeri asal mereka, sudah tentu tidak timbul masaalah-masaalah (seperti satu sekolah untuk semua, satu kedaulatan bahasa untuk perpaduan) yang timbul dari polarisasi kaum yang semakin meruncing.

Masaalah ini semua adalah apa yang diwariskan oleh ketua-ketua negara yang tunduk-tunduk, angguk-angguk, yang takut berbuat selain dari itu kerana takut tapak kuasanya terlepas dari tapak kasutnya, sehingga Temasik tergadai, kerayakyatan percuma diberi yang kesemuanya berakhir dengan mereka hendak lagi dan hendak lagi dan tuntut lagi …. akhirnya sekarang timbul generasi yang berpegang kepada …. ”Give me what I want, then only I give what the country wants”

San Peng,

Salam kembali kapada Sdr. Apa yang Sdr kata itulah yang dinamakan “berpatutan”. Menerima keadaan tempatan, sejarah tempatan, arus tempatan. Buadaya tempatan memanglah budaya berpatutan. Mmelayu berdagang beribu tahun pun berupa tukar mmenukar (barter trading) berdasarkan apa yang patut. Tidak berkira berat, timbang dan harga. Hingga sekarang pun masih ada lagi diluar bandar yang, bila ditanya berapa harga ubi kayunya atau buah jeringnya, menjawab “berilah berapa yang patut.”

Maka disedari bahawa sekarang sudah bertukar zaman dan berniaga, timbang, berat dan harga sudah mengganti tukar-menukar barang. Tetapi tidak semestinya berkira apa sahaja. Termasuk ta’at setia kapada negara. Sabenarnya, tidak boleh ta’at setia dirundingkan, diletak nilai, diminta ganjaran baginya.

Masalahnya kerap terdapat pemimpin-pemimpin negara melebihkan mahu undi dari membina suatu negara yang bersatu padu. Terutama kebelakangan ini salepas pimpinan yang dipanggil Tun Dr Mahathir sebagai “flip-flopping, auto-piloting” dan dipanggil pihak lain sebagai “sleeping” dan membiarkan “budak-budak Tingkat 4” diJabatan Perdana Menteri berleluasa mempengaruhi pentadbiran negara disana sini. Pembangkang-pembangkang dibiarkan mengata dan membuat hampir apa sahaja yang mereka suka. Jika tidak dibendong akan beratlah padahnya.

Udahlah Najib, dulu sibuk rakyat marhaen dok bantah omar ong masuk dlm petronas. Hari ni, buat apa telefon presiden petronas pasal sheryll stothard pulak? Entah apa kebenda si Najib ni.

Kerana dibiarkan keadaan berleluasa sejak dipemerintahan yang lalu. Fikirlah: yang chauvinis mengkritik DEB seikut suka, hingga ketahap memperso’alkan Kedudukan Istimewa Melayu yang nyata dikawal Akta Hasutan tetapi hampir tiada tindakan tegas diambil, yang subversif mahukan Ketua Pengganas Komunis Chin Peng masuk dan mati diMalaysia dengan tidak menghiraukkan berapa banyak kematian, kerosakkan harta benda dan penjejasan ekonomi dibuat mereka, yang rasis mempersendakan Perkasa dan Kumpulan 76 NGO Melayu coba mempertahankan hak dan kepentingan Melayu yang ketinggalan dibelakang bersama Bumiputera Sabah dan Sarawak, yang tak menghiraukan Bahasa Malaysia mahukan bukan sahaja sekolah vernakular diteruskan tetapi meminta bermacam kemudahan dan galakan Kerajaan.

kita sedar bahawa kebanyakan rakyat berbilang kaum mahukan kedamaian dan perpaduan. Yang berniaga banyak yang mahukan ketenteraman kerana stabiliti perlu untuk penanaman modal dan perkembangan perniagaan. Yang benar-benar merasa sebagai rakyat Malaysia sepenuhnya, sayangkan, ta’at setia dan bertanggung jawab
sebagai rakyat dan membuat berbagai sumbangan sukarela. Saperti Tan Sri Professor Khoo Kay Kim. Juga termasuk mereka dari parti pembangkang saperti Tan Sri Lee Lam Tai (kemudiannya meninggalkan DAP) dan Tan Sri Dr Tan Chee Koon yang dimasa hayatnya sentiasa membangkang tetapi secara bertanggong jawab dan tidak rasis. Masalahnya ialah pembangkang yang rasis dan tidak bertanggung jawab, yang subversif, yang berhubung dengan kongsi gelap, penjahat dan gengster diIbupejabat Kerajaan Selangor (the Underworld) saperti disebut seorang ADUN dan seorang Wakil Rakyat. Pemimpin negara perlu mengambil tindakan tegas dan assertif dan tidak membiarkan mereka membuat sesuka hati sahaja. Demi kepentingan perpaduan negara.

Malay leaders in Malaysia like to see their folks contained in a chicken coop. They tell them that they are free and yet to be beholden to them as they are the ones providing them their feed.

They even believe that if they left the coop, they might be eaten up by the wily fox, and that they might otherwise starve to death.

The Singapore malays is in no illusions and they know they are out of the coop. They got to find their own nourishment and they got no leader throwing in the crumbs to them.

If they don’t want to labour for their food, they can always go across the causeway and be given citizenship rights and take advantage of all the crumbs thrown at them. But most of them will not.

Of course the chicken shit from there have all long crossed over. But the rest have a little more dignity and stay on to show what they are really made up of.

I respect the Singapore malays for that. It does not matter that they have made a lot of wrong turns or that they have hardly a fighting chance. But they got more respect and dignity than their kinsfolk from over here Malaysia.

This is what half-past-six ministers that we have in Malaysia. Even comparison between Singapore malays and Malaysian Chinese, Singapore malays are never discriminated by their government based on equality.

I have so many Singapore malay friends from school mates, college mates to business partners. Penang malays would be so glad if they are treated like Singapore malays. Just ask the Singaporeans……….do they want to be back to Malaysia?

The problem with the Malaysia malays is their jealous attitude. If they are left behind, they will prevent others from moving ahead too! And sometimes even sabotaging others, and some resort the use to cast spell on others.

Not only the laid back malays are preventing their own people from being successful, but other races too. We also want the malays to be successful by creating value in the society so that everyone benefit but not by taxing the non-malays then give contracts to the malays, who will then deliver half-past-six service.

Change your own attitude first through value creation using your own tears and sweats!

As said before, had Malaysia been managed by Lee Kuan Yew and his colleagues for the past 50 years, Malaysia would have been much better off today, including all the malays! 95% would have owned a house, and no such rampant corruption!

For the malay ultras, facts speak louder than your bigotry cries, wake up, grow up, be men instead of sissies!

You see the problem here – the malays just cannot face up to their main problem – Laziness. This shows how thick-skinned and self-deluded these people are.

Malaysia is a multi-racial country. Jika kamu tak suka, kamu boleh blar……….tiada orang larang kamu.

The fact is malays you are the biggest loser! I am trying to wake you up instead of using the way like what our government is practice to provide NEP even though it is proven NEP is a failure in the past 30 years. Keep on dreaming if you think Malaysia could achieve Vision 2020 with your kind of attitude!

Speaking without substances and distorting facts seems to be the good old habitual ways of Malaysia malays, which is probably inherited by their much loved masters, the “malay killers” – Umno.

To add to this, constant distorted facts with regards to the situational state of the Singapore malays remains among the commentators of Umno. It is hard not to see that some people really need to see the situation and know it first hand before dishing out their empty vessel mentalities.

Anyways, good thing you be it Malay, Indian, Chinese in Singapore is open to competition, and cherish diversity. Not like the radical son of terrorist we can find many in Malaysia.

Most malays in Malaysia hate diversity and discontent to the minorities, especially the Chinese. In blog, radical malays can be either extreme or pretentiously diverse-minded. Very few is genuine.

I do admit there are lazy malays that depend on handouts, but this kind of malays will be phase out and this kind I would say hypocrites. They tend to claim they work hard to achieve success, in fact they relaying on government support. I myself despise this kind of human being.

Little do they realize this safety net is fast disappearing because the government is finding it increasingly difficult to maintain the system in the face of global challenges! But these handouts have become an addiction. Refuse the junkie and you get booted out of power.

It is the malays themselves that must come to realize the damaging side effects of the NEP. For someone who wants no better than to see his own race succeed, this must be painful.

And you can often see the malays are usually envious of not only the non-malays, but of their own successful malays as well.

Malays failed is a fact. What make non-malays not happy about their failure is, they fail despite get ample help from the government.

And they continue putting the blame on their fail to, especially the Malaysian Chinese. This is why created so many issue and argument here.

But those greedy Umno guys keep emphasis the NEP, how many percent of the country wealth belong to malays. In fact, those Umno guys having super good life by easy way.

And they keep on demanding, not really review what was wrong with it, putting the blame to non-malays, to stir the racist sentiment in the country.

If present situation continue, even the malays get 60% of the country wealth, majority of the malays will still munch.

Simple solution – come to Singapore and see for yourselves even if you want to guise that our Singapore malays are in lesser numbers on success than the Malaysia idiotic counterparts – our Singapore malays are based on merit and not on such keris wielding Umno policies……….are you proud of that?

Once again, in a subtle and indirect manner, this forum has proven how naive and “katak bawah tempurung” a Malaysia malay can be. Blame who? The Umno policies.

Yes, start collecting the achieves with regards to moral degradation among Malaysia malays. Look at the Umno ministers when they speak on national TV. Qualify or not become ministers with such low reactive capabilities?

Some Malaysia malays saying Singapore malays quota should be more in the Singapore cabinet if compared to the Indians. First, Singapore government is based on merit system and not like you bunch of racist morons here. That is why Malaysia is so backward if compared to Korea and others.

Not many Malaysia malays can survive if they go oversea because they are slow and lazy and that is why they can’t compete with the competitive market out there. Normally they will end up hiding their heads in Malaysia with the protection and biased system by the Malaysia government.

Come on, man. We do not have time to argue the truth of your on and on talk about “not all malays are spoon fed, not all malays are lazy”. Like we are dying to argue that when we already know it is true.

It is human nature to blame everyone about their plight rather than blame themselves. The majority of new generation of malays in Singapore is educated, unlike their parents.

Please read the comments made by Singapore malays why they can hold their heads up and be proud as a Singapore malay and then maybe it will sink into you.

Muslims everywhere unless they are the minority, cannot tolerate people with different religions. The Singapore government handles the situation rather well as they handle their malay community with kid gloves.

Not a single fact. All conjectures and venomous opinions, wild and wanton accusations. No substantiation, no verifiable figures in support of what he says. Inciteful and seditious, too.

But he is already a gonner, isn’t he. So no real bother to us. Malaysians know whether what he says has any truth or not.

He is a very pitiful case. A lost soul, forever a misfit anywhere he goes. No decorum, no decency, hardly any respect for people around him. He’s the fella who goes hopping from country to country. Or instigates others to do so because he himself cannot afford it – migrating is not a cheap business. Ask any Australian – they don’t take any Ching, Chong or Chang. They want to see your bank account and deposit with them a banker’s cheque before they let you stay permanently there.

But those who think like this fella are free to leave. Nobody stops them. The so-called brain drain is a myth. How can it be a brain drain if they are like this “cool man” kind of fellow.

Like when the Chinese in mainland China referred to themselves as “the Middle Kingdom” and called everybody else outside as uncivilised, it was also a myth according to reputable historians. This kind of fellas forgot that the Mongols conquered and ruled them in the 13th Century, the Manchus (Manchuria not a part of China until after World War II) did so for a few hundred years until the 20th Century, the Japanese and the British bullied them in the mid20th Century – Hong Kong was returned to China only about 10 years ago.

This great, non-lazy and successful “cool man” would have gotten hot if he knew all those.

Only one standard reply needs be written for this group of wayward comments so that readers will know what kind of fellow the writer is. That reply is copy-pasted as replies to 1-2 of the comments and below it additional points may be added to debunk the wild accusations and warped, demented thinking he expresses.

The writer breeds hatred for the Malays which is likely to have stemmed from

1. non-acceptance of the Constitution of the country, Malaysia, which stipulates under Article 153 the Special Position of the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak. That Special Position was agreed to by non-Malay leaders when Malay leaders agreed to citizenship for the non-Malays at independence or Merdeka. It was in exchange or the quid pro quo for citizenship for the non-Malays who were stateless all those years under British rule. It became to be known as the Social Contract which fellows like the writer do not recognise, honour or accept.

2. non-recognition of the history of the country, particularly the part concerning the fight for independence of the country and the circumstances that led to the Social Contract. This small group of ingratiates wish the history of the country to begin from the day their forefathers got citizenship, or from the day they were born and became citizens, and want all history before that be erased. Indeed, a few of them wish, and 1-2 tried, to re-write the history of the country in the ever-changing and continuously edited Wikipedia. They even state that the communist terrorists of the Communist Party of Malaya were nationalists, disregarding completely the fact that their leader Chin Peng went to communist China a few times, received instructions and supplies from them, wanted to make this country a puppet of the then communist China, wanting to overthrow the democratically elected Government of this country by force even when the British colonialists have left after independence.

3. They might not have existed during the racial riots of 13 May 1969 and could not care less about the prospect of them happening again and are not bothered about the underlying reasons for the outbreak of the riots – the vast disparity in the economic and educational situation of the majority Malays compared to the 23% Chinese who control the economy of the country until now. They opposed the New Economic policy implemented after the riots in 1970 – designed to increase the 2% wealth owned by the Malays and the less than 5% posts they had in the various professions in the country. They try to question Article 153 of the Constitution that gives the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak a Special Position and need to be assisted, like even the Chinese in Mainland China were assisted by by the Manchu rulers (foreigners who conquered and ruled China for a few hundred years until the early 20th Century – Manchuria became a part of China only after World War II). The Manchu rulers allocated 25% of the civil service posts to the “disadvantaged” and less educated southern Chinese, from whom most Malaysian Chinese are descended. Almost the same quota system is adopted in Malaysia under the NEP to assist the disadvantaged Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak, that this unreasonable kind of fellows resent.

4. The kind of upbringing and education that may be traceable to Chinese schools that somehow the politicians have allowed to exist, irrespective of Article 152 of the Constitution which stipulates that Bahasa Malaysia is the National Language of the country. Chinese schools do not use Bahasa Malaysia as the medium of instruction, clearly violating the said Constitutional provision. Promoters, parents and pupils self alienate themselves from the mainstream of society, developing values peculiar to themselves, that even progressive businessmen Chinese differ from, because they know that in order for their businesses to grow, they must avoid racial disturbances that led to emergency rule and the suspension of Parliament, curfews and control of people’s movement, the military patrolling the streets armed with rifles, boycotting of shop premises and the like. They know that while the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak now do not have much wealth (18% corporate wealth at the last official count), they form 70% of the polpulation and constitute a sizeable proportion of the internal market for them. It’s only these rowdy non-business people, employed in one non-corporate capacity or other, having a demented perspective of the ways things are run in this country, selfish and greedy to unimagineable limits, frustrated with the situation at work and at home that make the kind of unwarranted noise like this writer does. He may or may not have absconded the country; they say and claim all sorts as can be seen from the kind of nonsense this kind write in blogosphere.

This comment will be updated in due course. [Updated by way of additional points in reply to 1-2 of the other comments].

Yes, i agree. Kita musti ikut cara LKY memerintah hingga menjadikan Singapura sebagaimana sekarang. Tanpa any real pembangkang, rakyat dipaksa ikut apajua polisi…. senang kerajaan nak implement apa2. Still pemimpin kerajaan tak boleh la nak ambil kesempatan, musti bersih.

Tapi harus ikut cara LKY masa nak naik dulu. Bukan tiru keadaan sekarang. So.. pembangkang yang suka compare ngan Singapura sekarang, harus terimalah cara singapura masa nak naik dulu….

Because Chinese race is a superior race than a inferior malay race.

Chinese race vs malay race –


Skin – malay race is much blacker.

Brain (IQ) – malay race is much more low.

Face – malay race is much uglier.

Height – malay race is much smaller.

Physical ability – malay race is much more inferior.

Such truth may know you too who is a malay race.

All thing is because a malay race is very inferior than a Chinese race.

5 05 2010

Well, I think it is quite clear for us to see from the comment made who is more sore against the other.

Ever ponder on pyschology in reversed?

You hit the other guy so bad (to a point that it is obvious for all to detect that you are really hurting inside) because you felt yourself less superior to the other guy. And this is great injustice to you and you have to deny this fact.

Filthy mouth is one way of letting out the steam – a denial mode.

5 05 2010

I think u r right Mr Kenn. Very possible reverse psychology.

Oso the cool man fler. If he likes Singapore so much, he must be so happy, enjoy himself and very busy, no time or can’t be bother to write long about Malaysians.

Mebbe he is regret. No more job in Malaysia and now angry oso.

The truth is Chinese inject entrepreneurial and economic progress in South East Asia. If the Chinese left Malaysia, your economy would be on the verge of collapse and will become little more than a backwater hellhole.

There are very simple reasons why Chinese do not fully assimilate into malay society. It is because the malay people are very hostile and disrespectful to the Chinese. It is well ingrained in their society, this anti-Chinese sentiment.

Also, given this hostility, why should Chinese integrate with your society? Let me tell you, it is a very simple reason. Unlike primitive tribesmen minorities in your territories, our civilization and culture is actually far superior than your malay culture.

We are the inheritors of one of the greatest civilizations in human history. Why do we want to downgrade our cultural knowledge and perception, and accept a backward and undeveloped primitive culture?

You Malaysians, Filipinos and Indonesians need to learn from the example of the Thais. They are friendly to Chinese and many Thai Chinese are very integrated and are loyal to Thailand. However, they also have links to China and bring the two countries closer.

Hence, China and Thailand enjoy very strong relations and all of this bodes well for Thailand economically and politically. It is no wonder Thailand has experienced a great deal of economic progress.

Too, I lived in Malaysia before and let me tell you that Malaysia is not rich. The government owes a lot of money to Japan and other countries. The nation is corrupted! In outside look, you think Malaysia is rich but the truth is Malaysia is very poor. A lot of projects have been cancelled such as new airport in Kuching, and etc.

Indeed right, in Malaysia the malays are like shit. They disrespect the Chinese. And you want to know why the malay government has money? It is because the tax! Chinese pay high tax to the malay government where the malay government even use quota control!

The malays given of special treatment, the government give money to the malays because without this, the malays will have nothing! We Chinese in Malaysia depend on ourselves! We earn money on ourselves!

The Chinese in Malaysia is dropping rapidly, one day and one day will come, when the malays don’t like Chinese and riot, then we Chinese move away and hahaha! Malaysia will become like Indonesia!

Now look at your Indonesia, last time when Chinese there, the government can be rich. Now when Chinese gone – your country like shit! Hahaha! This is dream funny!

5 05 2010

You are talking through your nose, man. Any sensible Malaysian knows what you say is rubbish, chauvinistic and racist. There’s no iota of truth in what you said. It’s simply vitroil, laced with extreme frustration because of your non-acceptance of the history of this country, of the Constitution, of what your grandfathers have agreed that the Malays have a Special Position in the Constitution because the Malays agreed that you and your ancestors at Merdeka get Malayan, later Malaysian, citizenship. Good that you are no longer in Malaysia now. No Malay and right thinking Malaysian would want you in the country. Do stay out permanently.

There’s no such thing as superior culture, dumb ass. The Nazis under Adolf Hitler tried to show that and they got walloped left, right and centre. To the extent Hitler not only took a cyanide pill but also shot himself at about the same time. To make sure he was fully dead when the closing-in Russian Army reached his bunker. He knew he might be skinned alive or at least paraded on the streets with handcuffs by Joseph Stalin. Such was the fate of some bloke who claimed to have a superior culture.

I can write lengthily debunking your stupid claims. I am not done with you yet. As General MacArthur said to the Filipinos during World War II, “I shall return”. And he did return to lead the Allied forces to victory over the Japanese and threw them out. You are already thrown out from Malaysia, voluntarily or whatever. But I shall return to fart you up wherever you are point by point.

I have returned. But as there are sufficient replies already made to the group of “aston” comments in this post, I’m writing another one for the group in the “Hormat the Yang Berhormat” post.

Our reply to “cool man” above also applies to this and the other comments in this group of Malay-hating, incorrigibly selfish, greedy, endlessly demanding and inconsiderate Malaysians or ex-Malaysians. If the chap is not Malaysian, he possibly belongs to a subversive lot out to create unrest, anxiety, alarm and despondency with the hope of weakening this country, perpetrated, controlled and manipulated by foreign elements wanting to sabotage the progress of a reasonably progressive country in this region.

We agree with the opinion that he has no clue about what economics is all about. Mexico, Argentina and several countries in Africa were said to be “on the verge of collapse” but continue to exist to this day. We also support the opinion that there is no such thing as a “superior culture”, that civilisations rose and fell throughout history and that Chinese history is full of ups and down and that communist China was treated by the West like an international pariah until only a decade or so ago. Of course this fellow refuses to acknowledge the scores of Professors, experts in linguistics, anthropology, archeology etc who have written about the 6,000 year old Malay civilisation and quoted in the book by that name published by The Historical Society of Malaysia. Nobody speaks about a superior Malay culture or not respecting the Chinese in Malaysia but people talk about all citizens must respect the Constitution of the country which includes Article 152 on Bahasa Malaysia and Article 153 on the Special Position of the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak which was in exchange for citizenship for the non-Malays.

This writer wants equality without accepting the fact that freedom, equality etc are not limitless. No one can carry guns in US without registering them. The Blacks, Hispanics and Asians who are equal in citizenship status as the Whites there do not get the same treatment as the Whites do. During Typhoon Katrina, the Blacks were not given the assistance they deserved because they were Blacks, the Hispanics and Asians get roughed up and automatically become “the usual suspects” in many crimes as and when they happen, and President Obama risked his political future by getting the Health Care Bill passed by Congress because the Blacks are the majority poor in the US but did not have health insurance in a system where medical treatment is extremely expensive.

In Malaysia equality has to take into account of Article 153 of the Constitution which has been passed by a duly constituted Parliament comprising democratically elected representatives of practically all the communities that make up Malaya, and later, at the formation of Malaysia.

This anti-national group of people is indeed a tiny minority of the Malaysian population, trying to corrupt and subvert the minds of the average citizens. We need to keep on disabusing their ill-intended propaganda in the interest of peace and unity in the country. We are aware they are the hit-and-run type and may not be visiting this site again after pouring their venom once in a while. But we wish to place on record the counter-arguments here. Any attempt to argue in detail and furnish data would not be productive as these people are hardcore in their thinking and are beyond redemption as far as their hatred for mainstream society and loyalty to Malaysia is concerned.

Before any economic activity can take place, one need a ground, a land, a place to start the activity. Have you forgotten that a piece of land had been given for such economic activities to begin, in a first place?

Well, I would say.. just take all your economic gains, leave this place – some of us value harmony much more than money.

tuan admin

hangat perbincangan kita ni.
banyak pedebat-pendebat superior pun masuk bincang.
betul-betul cakap saya tak nampak di mana superior-nya kawan-kawan kita ni
yang ada superioriy complex saja.
yang orang melayu pun bukan inferior. yang dia orang ni tak faham tuan admin pada pendapat saya lah dalam hidup ni bukan ekonomi saja yang jadi kayu ukur
kawan-kawan kita yang bengap ni ingat kita iri hati. sebenarnya tak.
siapa yang tak nak assimilate ni ?
tuan admin betul. kena kena mula dengan SSS.
masa saya sekolah dulu ramai kawan-kawan kita yang rasa superior ni petah cakap bm dan dia orang ni pada hemat saya faham semangat setiakawan. faham perlembagaan negara sebab tiap-tiap hari kena sebut. sekarang dah gostan. saya tengok boleh jadi banyak adanya sekolah2 yang berlatarkan bahasa lain jadi punca utama. saya tak tahu apa budak-budak ni diajar di sekolah, tapi inilah kejadiannya sekarang ni. orang coklat ni terlalu ansur bila kena tolak. ornag kuning pulak dia nak tolak habis macam komatsu bulldozer. selagi tak habis dia tak nak berhenti tolak. lama-lama kita tak berhenti ansur aje kerjanya.
cuba kita baca apa pasal wujudnya umno. salah satu sebab tak tak kuasa nak ansur lagi lah.
jadi saya pandang budak-budak sekarang ni dah lagi cerdik daripada kita dulu-dulu. kita didik dia orang ni supaya faham rukunegara ni supaya jangan ada yang boleh kata “tuhan boleh kasi saya apa?”, “raja boleh kasi saya apa?”. biar sampai dia orang faham apa maknanya keluhuran perlembagaan tu. biar dia orang menhayati apa maknanya kedaulatan undang-undang, bukan pergunakan undang-undang untuk kepentingan sempit macam kit siang, karpal, anwar. biar budak-budak ni dibekalkan dengan kesopanan dan kesusilaan yang besar maknanya kepada rakyat majoriti bumi kita ni.

Sdr pun superior juga berbincang disini dan kami berbangga dengan kehadziran Sdr didalam blog ini. Marilah kita teruskan mengeluarkan hujah-hujah yang mungkin berfaedah kapada mereka yang tidak mengikut arus kemajuan yang sejajar dengan Perlembagaan negara. Mereka yang mengasingkan diri sendiri dengan memegang kapada sekolah vernakular yang tidak menghormatkan Bahasa Malaysia sebagai Bahasa Kebangsaan. Mereka yang sudah dapat kerakyatan negara ini tetapi tidak menghormatkan Kedudukan Istimewa Melayu dan Bumiputera Sabah dan Sarawak. Kedudukan Istimewa yang telah dipersetujui nenek moyang mereka sebagai balasan kapada pemimpin Melayu menyetujui kerakyatan bagi bukan Melayu dirundingan Merdeka dahulu.

Tidak mengapa kita ulangkan hujah-hujah kita berkali kali. Saperti juga mereka mengulangkan kata-kata mereka berkali kali. Kita perlukan pembaca lain juga mengtahui bahawa mereka tidak boleh meneluarkan kata-kata dengan sesuka hati dibila-bila masa tanpa disergah dan ditegur. Mereka akan dijawab dan mana yang bodoh disebutkan begitu, mana yang rasis ditunjukkkan begitu. Moga moga mereka sedar bahawa ada yang menjawab mereka, menunjukkan mana yang tidak betul dan mempertahankan mana yang betul, walau pun kita sedar, sebagai kepala batu atau “harcores”, mereka tidak berganjak pendiriannya.

Budaya mereka memang berbeza sekali dengan kita. Sejarah mereka dinegeri China juga amat berbeza. Perbezaan rohani dan jasmani. Pemikiran dan pendirian mereka banyak kapada kebendaan. Perkataan “kiasu” bermakna tidak mahu tetinggalan atau tidak mahu kalah. Mereka juga bangsa yang, mengikut Professor C.P Fitzgerald didalam buku sejarahnya berkenaan negri China, menganut tiga jenis agama didalam masa yang sama – Confucianism, Buddhism (yang berasal dari India) dan Taoism – dengan tidak merasa janggal atau ketidak sesuaian (incompatibility) sedikit pun. Ada yang mengatakan bahawa ini sebagai “tiga insuran dari malapetaka”. Demikian sekali kesanggupan mereka terhadap penganutan agama. Maka ini membayangkan sejauh mana kesanggupan mereka mendapat apa sahaja faedah kebendaan didunia ini, dimana mana pun mereka pergi.

Dengan itu timbul budaya kekayaan, menyimpan harta, mendapatkan apa sahaja, termasuk kuasa, bagi membolehkan mereka menambah harta dan kekayaan. Ini pula sejajar dengan falsafah Barat dan kapitalisme bahawa keuntungan mesti sentiasa dimaksimakan (maximisation of profits), konsep yang memerlukan “killer instincts” dalam perniagaan supaya sentiasa boleh menang, jadi kiasu. Ingatlah: mereka membubarkan sistem pemerintahan ribuan tahun dan menggantinya dengan sistem kuminisme yang amat bertentangan dengan konsep kapitalisme Barat. Parti Komunis China masih lagi memerintah diChina sekarang. Tetapi mereka mempraktikkan konsep Kapitalisme sejak 1-2 dekad yang lalu. Mungkin juga sebagai insuran tambahan dari mala petaka dan tidak mahu ketinggalan dibelakang. China tidak lagi dianggap sebagai pariah antarabangsa sejak lebih kurang 1 dekad yang lalu.

Namun demikian, kebanyakan mereka diMalaysia ini bertanggung jawab, hormatkan kapada Perlembagaan dan menjalankan obligasi sebagai rakyat Malaysia dengan memuaskan. Hanya segelintir yang ultra kiasu, melampau atau ekstreme, yang berpendirian saperti ditunjukkan dibeberapa komen melampau dan mirip kapada menghasut (seditious) disini. Kami keluarkan komen komen mereka supaya rakyat tahu jenis mereka ini dan supaya pembaca-pembaca blog ini tahu hujah-hujah yang menemplak pendirian dan kata-kata mereka, dalam rangka mendatangkan fahaman demi perpaduan negara.

saudara admin

saya mengaku saya bangga saya berbangsa melayu.
saya bangga dengan keindahan bahasa pertuturan, persuratan, peradaban dan budaya bangsa saya, walaupun hari ini saya lebih kerap berbahasa inggeris dalam urusan harian serta di rumah. bukan terlampau nak jadi moden saudara admin, tapi hal cari makan dan mahukan kebolehan berbahasa “universal language” ini dapat diterapkan dengan lebih berkesan kepada anak-anak saya bagi mempersiapkan mereka menempuh kehidupan masa depan dalam dunia tanpa sempadan kelak.

tetapi saudara admin, kecenderungan ini telah menampakkan mudarat. saya amati anak-anak saya tidak dapat menguasai bahasa malaysia sebagaimana yang sepatutnya walaupun mendapat markah baik di dalam peperiksaan awam. keadaan ini sedikit membingungkan saya.

pada pengamatan saya, masyarakat cina juga melalui perkara yang sama seperti saya lalui dan mereka bersungguh-sungguh mahu menggembalikan kebolehan menguasai bahasa mandarin dan mengekalkannya. tetapi saya percaya kemahuan kebanyakan ibubapa ini telah memberi ruang kepada pendidik vernakular menerapkan budaya menentang yang amat ketara di kalangan anak-anak ini. seperti yang kita sedia maklum kumpulan pendidik vernakular ini sangat mempengaruhi arus politik negara ini. dan seperkara lagi, saya juga berpendapat eloklah sekiranya pendidik vernakular ini hanya memberi pendidikan bahasa dan kebudayaan sahaja agar tidak hilang dari pengetahuan dan penggunaan serta juga menerapkan pembudayaan malaysia yang berlandaskan kebudayaan melayu secara amnya (1 Malaysia) dalam pembelajaran harian.

saya percaya sikap biadab yang amat ketara ini kebelakangan ini hanya melibatkan segelintir masyarakat masyarakat bukan melayu dan sebahagian besar di antara mereka mendukung prinsip saling memahami untuk kesejahteraan bersama. tetapi suara biadab segelintir ini yang meniupkan api bagi membakar kesefahaman yang telah terbina. ini mesti dihentikan serta-merta. terpulanglah kepada kebijaksanaan kerajaan semasa ini bagi membendung “pekong ini sebelum bernanah”. saya berpendapat kerajaan najib masih lagi boleh kelihatan liberal tetapi perlu lebih tegas dalam melaksana dan mempertingkatkan usaha-usaha membendung kebiadaban ini.

kegagalan mca memperkasa, memperjelas dan menghidupkan budaya malaysia akibat daripada persengketaan dalaman mereka juga telah memberi ruang kepada kebangkitan golongan biadab ini yang diketuai dap. menjadi lebih sedih ialah segolongan melayu yang kononnya lebih liberal pimpinan anwar ibrahim bersekongkol dengan golongan biadab ini untuk tujuan menjatuhkan kerajaan yang diberi mandat memerintah. mereka yang tidak pernah puas dengan nikmat yang terhidang hari sanggup mengorbankan baki keselesaan orang melayu yang sebenarnya hanya tinggal nama, untuk meraih sokongan daripada rakyat biadab ini. untuk apa ?

saya berpendapat sekolah satu aliran adalah jalan terbaik bagi membina jambatan pemahaman antara rakyat berlainan keturunan. ia telah terbukti kejayaannya dan pemimpin masyarakat bukan melayu perlu bekerja keras meyakinkan rakyat bahawa keseragaman persekolahan ini membawa lebih banyak kebaikan sejagat. dengan cara begini sikap “chauvanistic” dan saling tidak mempercayai akan lambat-laun dapat dihakis melalui kempen-kempen kesedaran dan kegiatan kurikulum sekolah. persatuan-persatuan sosial dan NGO juga boleh berperanan menganjurkan usaha-usaha penyatuan.

Menjadi amat janggal ada di antara kita masih lagi tidak cukup pengetahuan tentang Perlembagaan Malaysia dan suka menganggap diri mereka rakyat kelas dua di negara tanah air sendiri dan sentiasa menyalahkan kerajaan dan orang melayu tanpa sebarang periksa. Sungguh malang mereka yang berfikiran demikian. Saya juga berpendapat perkataan “ketuanan melayu” yang mula timbul sedekat lalu harus digantikan dengan perkataan yang lebih sesuai penerimaannya terhadap masyarakat umum Malaysia kerana telah terbukti tidak disenangi kerana mudah disalah-tafsir oleh mereka yang gagal memahami Bahasa Malaysia dengan baik termasuk dari golongan professional.

Sesungguhnya orang melayu tidak pernah menuntut menjadi tuan di bumi ini melainkan hanya mahu mengekalkan peruntukan di bawah Perlembagaan Malaysia yang telah dipersetujui nenek-moyang kita. Sebahagian besar orang melayu sendiri sedar perlaksanaan peruntukan istimewa ini tidak banyak menguntungkan rakyat kebanyakan melainkan diperbesarkan untul tujan tuan politik.

Memang seharusnya kita berbangga dengan bangsa kita. Baguslah Persatuan Sejarah Malaysia telah menerbitkan buku, “The Malay Civilisation”, ditahun 2007, dan edisi bahasa Malaysianya, “Tamadun Alam Melayu”, ditahun 2009. Mungkin ramai antara kita yang tidak sedarkan bahawa alam Melayu berumur 5000 – 6,000 tahun dan luas sampai keMadagascar, Afrika Selatan, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, Taiwan, Vietnam dan Cambodia, iaitu kawasan-kawasan yang orang Melayu telah mendudukki beribu tahun yang lalu.

Hasil kajian saintifik berpuluh-puluh pakar dalam bidang linguistik, anthropology, archaeology dan sebagainya, yang dilakukan sejak abad 19, ada dihuraikan didalam buku itu. Moga-moga buku itu boleh mendatangkan kesedaran kapada orang Melayu, dan diharapkan bukan Melayu yang menyangkal asal usul negara ini boleh sedar dan fahamkan fakta-fakta sejarah negara. Elok jikalau hubung kait istilah “Melayu, Orang Asli, Bumiputera Sabah dan Sarawak, Malayo-Polynesia dan Austronesia”, yang merujuk kapada satu kumpulan maanusia yang sama, iaitu Rumpun Melayu, diajar disekolah-sekolah. Fahaman diatas perkara ini akan mendatangkan perasaan saling menghormati dan salitur rahim diantara rakyat Malaysia.

Tidak salah kita menggunakan Bahasa Inggeris sebagai bahasa kedua dinegara ini. Inggeris adalah bahasa yang benar-benar universal berdasarkan jumlah kawasan dimana ia digunakan untuk perhubungan resmi atau perniagaan. Bahasa Mandarin digunakan 1.2 billion maanusia tetapi hampir kesemuanya diChina. DiMalaysia didalam rangka sekolah satu aliran, Mandarin boleh dipelajari sebagai mata pelajaran pilihan. Sekolah Cina yang menggunakan Mandarin sebagai bahasa pengantar adalah bertentangan dengan Perkara 152 Perlembagaan berkenaan Bahasa Malaysia sebagai Bahasa Kebangsaan. Tidak salah orang Cina mahu kekalkan bahasa Mandarin asalkan tidak menggunakannya sebagai bahasa pengantar. Sekolah adalah urusan resmi dan tidak boleh bertentangan dengan Perkara 152 Perlembagaan. Tiada siapa menghalang penggunaan bahasa ibunda diurusan-ursan persendirian, walau pun bahasa Mandarin, yang bukan bahasa pertuturan harian diantara rakyat Cina diMalaysia.

Istilah “Ketuanan Melayu” telah diputar belit dan dieksploitasi puak pembangkang yang bencikan Melayu, tidak terima Kontrak Sosial dimana bukan Melayu mendapat kerakyatan dan, sebagai balasannya, orang Melayu dapat Kedudukan Istimewa yang juga merangkumi Bumiputera Sabah dan Sarawak dimasa penubuhan Malaysia. Salepas mendapat kerakyatan, mereka tidak hormatkan Perlembagaan negara dimana kedua-dua perkara itu dimaktubkan. Mereka subversif, coba mengungkit Kedudukan Istimewa Melayu dan Bumiputera Sabah dan Sarawak, mahukan ketua pengganas komunis Chin Peng masuk dan mati diMalaysia tanpa mengirakan keganasannya menjahanam beribu nyawa dan harta benda selama berpuluh tahun, dan ada muka mengatakan Parti Komunis Malaya itu nasionalitik, tanpa mengira bahawa mereka mahu Malaya/ Malaysia dibawah naungan China komunis, mahu menjatuhkan secara bersenjata kerajaan demokratik yang terdiri dari rakyat Malaya salepas British keluar berikutan Merdeka. Ketuanan Melayu tidak bermakna perhubungan diantara tuan dan hamba, hanya bermakna menghormati adat resam Melayu, contohnya membuka kasut bila memasukki rumah. Sehubungan dengan ini, kami berbangga bahawa sekarang sudah ada beberapa syarikat Cina atau yang diterajukan rakyat Cina diSemenanjong Malaysia yang mempraktikkan sistem buka kasut sabelom masuk pejabat, diatas alasan kesihatan dan sebagainya. Sebagaimana telah kerap dikatakan, ramai rakyat Cina yang mengikut arus masyarakat umum dinegara ini. Hanya segelintir yang ingkar dan mengasingkan diri, saperti mereka yang menganjurkan sekolah menggunnakan Mandarin sebagai bahasa pengantar.

Tidak ada jalan lain bagi mendatangkan salitur rahim, harmoni dan persepaduan yang berterusan selain dari menentukan semua rakyat menghormati dan mengikuti Perlembagaan negara sepenuhnya. Kerajaan perlu mengambil langkah tegas berkenaan perkara ini. Dimana mana negara demokratik pun didunia ini menysyaratkan rakyatnya mematuhi Perlembagaan negaranya. Dinegeri China pun, yang diperintah oleh Parti Komunis China hingga kesa’at ini, yang mengakui mereka juga demokratik, ada undang-undang tubuh negara atau Perlembagaan dan mahukan semua rakyatnya patuhi. Undang-undang ngeri China adalah tegas dan hukuman bagi pelanggaran undang-undang rasuah, contohnya, adalah digantung atau ditembak mati. Apatah lagi jika menderhaka atau tidak ta’at setia kapada negara. Ta’at setia mestilah berdasarkan kapada mematuhi Perlembagaan negara, bukan hanya membayar cukai, kerana buruh asing pun membayar cukai kapada negara ini dalam bentuk levy. Memanglah, kriteria bagi mengukur ta’at setia itu perlu ditentukan. Tetapi menggunakan Mandarin sebagai bahasa pengantar disekolah nyata bertentangan dengan Perkara 152 Perlembagaan. Hal bahawa sekolah vernakular dibiarkan pemimpin politik sejak Merdeka tidak bermakna ianya betul. Pembetulan perlu dilakukan terutamanya kerana polarisasi kaum sudah berleluasa dan SSS boleh membawa kapada persepaduan negara.
