Unreasonable and racist

Dong Zong/DAP rally: Calling all reasonable Malaysians to reject the racist demands

  • Dong Zong president Yap Sin Tian in his speech said the rally aims to make a point of how serious the shortage is, and for the immediate removal of the non-Chinese speaking teachers placed in the primary schools earlier this year. 
  • Yap also said not only was the shortage yet to be resolved, the government has placed more and more non-Chinese speaking teachers in schools for subjects other than English and Bahasa Malaysia. 

  • It also wanted the ministry to conduct special courses for Chinese primary school Chinese language teachers who have taught Bahasa Malaysia or English for at least three years so that they also are qualified to teach all three languages. 

  • Source of report here.

  • Can anybody tell me how much Mandarin does a Malaysian who lives and work in Malaysia needs to know? While I appreciate the need to remember the place where one ancestor comes from, I think the DZ and their supporters need to remind themselves that they are living in and are citizens of Malaysia. 

  • 50 odd years ago, the vernacular schools were born of tolerance among our founding fathers, after 50 years, the Chinese Educationists NGO the Dong Zong and gleefully supported by the chauvinist Chinese DAP in particular threathens to turn the vernacular school into a racially intolerant place refusing to even allow non mandarin speaking Teachers to teach any subject be it English or even our official language Bahasa Malaysia. This is a reaction by sms from my Malaysian Chinese friend and  I quote verbatim “How can Dong Zong insist non-Chinese speaking teachers can’t teach in Chinese schs? Unreasonable n racist! Many chinese can’t speak mandarin. Malay teach gd BM n indians teach gd english.”

  • It would be impossible for the Gomen to meet the Dong Zong and DAP racists demands.

  • I am calling on the Gomen, and all reasonable Malaysians to reject DZ/Dap unrealistic demand for only mandarin speaking teachers to teach in chinese schools. Remember there are also many Chinese who can’t speak Mandarin and do not have a pass in SPM Mandarin and they can probably teach BM and  English a lot better than a Malay or Indian can. This is Malaysia right, Malaysians Boleh. 

This blessed country is built on a bed rock 
of moderation and tolerance. 
Save Malaysia, Reject Extremism.
