There are 1,827 Chinese voters in DUN Sg Limau. From that amount, onlu 180 or 10 % voted for BN in the last general election. What is interesting is that the membership for MCA in that area is 965 people.
This particular fact shows that even though it is a long way from any DAP propaganda, the Chinese are still moving as one. The orders that they received in the last general election is to reject BN and most of them understood and comply with the order. Similar to what they would done in ancient China where the Emperor’s decree is considered holy and must be followed.
Then, the Chinese people of Sg Limau, together with the every one of them in Malaysia is to ensure DAP would win the election by giving it up to PAS in the last election.
Their hope is that if PR is able to govern the country, the DAP will practice its Chinese superiority concept, similar to the Singaporean. This is why they are well informed that even though the Prime Minister is a Malay from PAS or PKR, they will always be DAP’s minions.
However, after 5 years Kedah state is controlled by PAS, it is not that easy to “ride” on the late Tan Sri Azizan Razak. Tan Sri Azizan is seen more different than those who are in the PAS central committee. He can read the hidden agenda that the DAP pursue and never gave any quarters for the DAP to take advantage of him. The late Tan Sri Azizan was firm in his action to oppose all of the “gifts” by Chinese business thus taking DAP into hot waters. DAP’s ambition to take control of Kedah through PAS seems impossible.
When PAS failed to retain it seats in Kedah, the Menteri Besar was changed to Datuk Paduka Mukhriz Mahathir from Barisan Nasional that is known for his firm and strong principal. Even if Mukhriz is firmer and more practical, it is true that he needs to focus more on the people who helped the Barisan Nasional and not those who oppose the Barisan Nasional.
It doesn’t matter if the Chinese in Kedah like it or not, it is the fact that the state government will not be fooled by trying to woo those who have betrayed them. The fact remains, under the new administration, they will not tolerate any special treatment regardless of any affiliation.
This means if the Chinese in Sungai Limau wants more attention from the state government, they need to support the Barisan Nasional.. If not, they can always ask help from the DAP through the PAS representative anywhere near them.
Mukhriz action is not vicious or uunjust, as the government does not evict people from their lands like the DAP did to the Malays in Pulau Pinang. The state government never did stop any Chinese ceremonies even though the DAP tries to stop the Maulidur Rasul rally in Pulau Pinang.
In short, the Kedah government did not interrupt the Chinese in their daily activities. This is in contrast with the DAP or PAS party in Malaysia.
The Chinese must always remember that BN was the one who open the doors for them to prosper in this country. Without the leadership of BN, they can’t even achieve nothing in this country.
Today, the Chinese becomes the riches, but that can only be done as the Malays have a high spending power to ensure that the Chinese traders can accumulate their wealth. What’s wrong with the Chinese being together with the Malays and support the government that made it possible for all of this to happen?
The Chinese in Sungai Limau do not have to be fooled by Chinese who do not live in the area. They lived amongst the Malays and they should know the hearts and minds of the Malay who never did wanted to monopoly the wealth or bully anyone. The natural features for a Malay is peace loving. Malays only wants to have peace. Why then the Chinese have to fight the Malay leadership in Malaysia.
Do they really think that if they continue to oppose the BN up till the day that the PR will take over, everything will ever be better?
Now we look on how the DAP are sidelining the Kedah State DAP Chairman that was choose by the democratically. Now, look at how DAP oppress and lie to their own members.Is there anybody who thinks that PR is capable to govern the nation, without the hidden hand of a notorious political dictator.
The fact of the matter is, that the Chinese in Sungai Limau do not have to reinterpret it as the forecasted result of PRU-13.
It is the time that the Chinese have to think for themselves and not to follow the Chinese Emperor of Malaysia.
The struggle behind the DAP is getting worse as the plot thickens many in the party feels that they are being tricked and fooled by their leaders. The party who takes pride as being better, smarter and more transparent than the Barisan Nasional, clearly do not have what it takes to compete with Barisan Nasional. Just imagine the DAP party election that only involves 2,000 people are marred with controversy and they have to do a re-election.
Even after the re-election, they still cannot show the level of transparency that BN have shown.
We can hear many members of the DAP from ordinary members to DAP leaders complaints about the level of corruption and dishonesty inside the party. The only one who are keeping their mouth shut and satisfied with the results are those who are elected in the CEC.
Complaints regarding the notice of meetings, the mysterious absence of delegates and also the special meeting just before the election that only involves selected people are among the issue raised by DAP members. However, the complaints that shocked the nation is that the election are done without following the party’s constitution.
The result of these complaints, DAP Taman Seri Sungai Pelek, Sepang Branch Chairman, Goh Swee Huat has filed a complaint to the ROS so that they can investigate the CEC election on the 29th of September 2013.
Swee Huat stated that, the complaint have to be made as many DAP members are not satisfied with the new CEC as the election was done in the National Congress not a special congress.
The question is, whether Lin Guan Eng as the secretary of the party, do not know the constitution of his own organization?
He admitted that he did not know how to count, and do not know how to use a computer and now he also do not know his own party constitution. What kind of leader is governing the DAP today?
There are only two explanations regarding what is happening in the DAP. Whether Lim Guan Eng is really stupid or he is really evil.
Maybe it is a combination of both, maybe Lim Guan Eng is stupid and bad that is why his action reflects his personality.
We believe that DAP leaders do have the ability to count but intentionally claim that there were problems with the calculation so that only a few selected favourable people would win. It’s not they do not know how to use a computer, but they are blaming computer problems to ensure that they can make their members believe their manipulation.
Not that they do not know their party constitution, but they are intentionally ignoring it so that the DAP will forever be in the clutches of the Lim Dynasty and do not have to follow the law or bow down to any of the authority.
In short, we can say that they are behaving as if the DAP is the sole propriety of Lim Guan Eng because he inherits it from his parents.
Thus, members and leaders of the DAP in all level have to understand and accept this fact. Regardless of what they know and what they feel about their party.
DAP members can complaint, resign, hopping to other party or even commit suicide but to hope that the DAP leaders would give them any attention or ask them to be fair to their own members is like hoping that the Israel would just leave the Palestinian at peace.
This is beacause the DAP mission is not to help the people. DAP are only fighting for the demise of the Malay Islamic government. That’s all, and nothing else.
While aiming to take down the government, the DAP also tries to accumulate wealth as much as they can through big companies who are given mega contracts by them. As the old saying goes “killing two birds with one stone”.
For that, and only that, the Lim Dynasty will try to maintain their power for as long as they can.
Sungai Limau by-election campaign enters its fifth day today and the ground seems going well for Barisan Nasional (BN) as PAS loses grip of the voters, particularly the young ones.
PAS young voters and young supporters do not seem to stand out in the campaign trail as the party’s ceramahs held nightly have only been attended by a handful of old folks, hardly one hundred at each ceramah.
The ceramahs by both sides of the political divide began on Friday night as the weather has been fine with rainfalls only in the afternoon, not till late nights like Wednesday and Thursday.
And the last Friday and Saturday nights, PAS seemed to have failed to rally the few hundreds crowd at each ceramah, a stark contrast to the party’s normal ceramahs that attracted few hundreds if not by the thousands.
The youngsters, the normal PAS supporters who have been prevalent in controlling traffic every party ceramah and putting up banners and flags were absent in Sungai Limau, reflecting two things – PAS influence is fading among the youngsters and the party’s internal friction rears its ugly head.
Sungai Limau has been PAS bastion since 1995 and the late Datuk Seri Azizan Razak, who was one-term Mentri Besar, was well-loved by Sungai Limau’s 41,400-odd population of whom 27,222 would be casting their votes on Nov 4.
After his demise, the party had problems in choosing its candidates as the state PAS is split into three factions – Azizan’s fundamentalist faction, present party state commissioner Datuk Mahfuz Omar whose faction is close to Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) de facto chief Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and former exco member Datuk Phahrolrazi Zawawi who leads his own faction not aligned to any side.
Phahrolrazi had staged a rebellion against the late Azizan when he latter was Menteri Besar but failed and this had led to the break-away of Phahrolrazi’s supporters, who is said to have boycotted the current by-election.
Mahfuz, whose leadership is not well accepted by the fundamentalists in the state for his closeness with Anwar, has been in Kuala Lumpur to attend the the Parliament session and thus, his presence is not felt at all.
With such situation, the campaigning is left to the fundamentalists and Azizan’s group whose style is the traditionally holding ceramahs, completely detached from the normal kampong style of shaking hands and a small chat.
Lucky for this group, the party women wing – the Muslimah – is all out going house-to-house campaign wooing support which normally stars around 8am to afternoon.
But the concentration with this method of campaigning is the old folks who are known to be staunch PAS supporters who actually need no further ‘push’ mentally.
BN on the other hand seems to have penetrated the PAS bastion by focusing on the young voters who the past five days could be seen filling up BN’s operation centres in droves on their motorcycles.
They seem to be attracted to BN’s Mentri Besar Datuk Mukhriz Dr Mahathir’s whose personality is somewhat alike the late Azizan – soft spoken, always smiling and looking straight in the eyes when talking person-to-person.
Talks among kampong folks are that ‘Mukhriz budak baik’ (Mukhriz is a good boy) who should be given a ‘peluang’ (chance).
Whether this will be translated into votes on Nov 4 is yet to be seen but the fact remains that BN has penetrated the PAS bastion through the young voters.
Human Rights Watch (HRW) must have a funny way of choosing whose rights to be given priority, whose rights can be discounted and whose rights to fight all the way for. And in Malaysia, HRW is seen to be more interested in the rights of the minorities and the outlaws, whom, in a way, represent the Oppositions.
Malaysian Oppositions has been very vocal in fighting and defending the rights of the criminals and they are not shy about it. In fact, they are the ones responsible for putting the contained criminals back on the streets through their constant fight to abolish the Prevention Act, which they finally won.
The Oppositions are also known to be the champion of LGBT rights even though ‘un-natural sex’ is a crime in this country. And there is also the Bumiputera Rights that the Oppositions swear to abolish for the sake of ‘equality’ and in the name of ‘justice’, especially for the already rich Chinese.
Therefore, it couldn’t be wrong for us to connect the words ‘minorities and outlaws’ to the Oppositions.
And the statement made by HRW on Malaysia’s Home Minister’s recent speech, has made us wonder just how far does this ‘connection’ goes. HRW’s statement, could at any time, be taken as a write-up by Malaysiakini, a pro-Opposition news portal. Co-incidentally or not, Malaysiakini is currently building up a personal vendetta against the Minister for his blunt attack on the portal’s ‘habit’ of spinning his words in its reports.
After communist threat that ended in the late 80s, modern Malaysia has been a safe country to live in for almost forever, except for a few isolated tragedies involving extremists such as Sauk and May the 13th 1969 racial riots. Even those were contained at a certain parameter and ended as fast as they occurred.
In other words, Malaysians have never really known what it’s like to live in fear.
However, the prosperity and peace of the country not only attract the attention of peace-loving and fun-seeking tourists, but also criminals who see the country as a gold-mine. Malaysia has been swarmed by all sorts of criminals from all over the world from petty theft and brutal murderers from Indonesia to human traffickers from China and Thailand or drug dealers and the more cunning IT-savvy robbers from Africa and Latin America.
At the same time, local criminals have also ‘upgraded’ themselves along with the country’s rapid development.
We cannot deny that the crime rate has been rising almost ‘steadily’ in the past few years but the police have always had it under control.
Only until the Prevention Act was abolished which, was a quick and almost unexpected decision, that the police was caught by surprise as they were forced to let the hard-core criminals free. These criminals waited no time at all to roam the streets, paying long overdue debts and picking up things at where they left off.
The sound of gunshots and sirens are not norms in Malaysia and Malaysians are not even used to the sight of a gun except on TV. For so long, the most terrifying deaths reported in Malaysia are road accidents.
But ‘thanks’ to the Oppositions we now are ‘getting-used’ to reports of people being gunned down in the streets. This, must be the new modern-Malaysia that the Oppositions want to bring us to.
So, Malaysians took the Home Minister’s declaration of war against crime very positively. Zahid knows that Malaysians do not tolerate crime and the only way to make sure that no man would ever even think of committing a crime here again, is to ensure that he knows that he will not be compromised.
For that, Dato’ Seri Zahid Hamidi is practically a hero, for having the guts and shows it off through his fierce speeches.
HRW however, has a different view about Zahid Hamidi. The organization is now echoing our Oppositions by condemning our Home Minister – instead of the criminals.
Zahid is under attack for his statement that the police ‘will shoot first, ask questions later’. But his next sentence that ‘there must be proof and evidence before the shooting starts’ was somehow disregarded.
HRW went on referring to our Home Minister as ‘unlawful and having callous disregard for basic rights to live’. The organization even urge our government to take action against him!
Well, the way the Malaysians see it, the only person that is ‘unlawful and having callous disregard for basic rights to live’, is the criminals who go around shooting people on the streets.
And HRW has, in a way, just renewed these criminals ‘licence to kill’ by attacking Zahid.
By doing so, HRW is also indirectly motivating the criminals and help them twist things into becoming a racial issue just because most of the gunned down criminals are Indians. But yesterday, three criminals were shot dead in a gunfight with the police on the streets of Kuala Lumpur and they are not Indians, but Indonesians.
HRW should have known that racial issues could have caused an even worse kind of crimes. Therefore, HRW is just as bad as the criminals themselves or even worse.
While Dato’ Zahid Hamidi gives us hopes to live in peace of minds like we always have, HRW gives the criminals and potential criminals hopes and dreams to get away with their crime.
And this, is the organization that is supposed to ‘watch’ for our rights? Serious?
Even though Barisan Nasional (BN) is always battered for using a racist system through component parties, however this particular system is to ensure everyone will not be left out because they have they can voice out the problems of their race without being discriminated.
DAP on the other hand proudly declare that they are a multiracial party and has been proven not only to left out but also abuse those who are not of Chinese decent in many ways even in the CEC re-election that has been marred by a lot of controversy. What more proof do we need?
In the DAP, not only other races is barred from any chances of getting to the top post, but Sabahan Chinese is being left out and considered as a second class Chinese compared to the peninsular Malaysia Chinese. For example, there is no Sabahan Chinese in the CEC election.
In the same time, the DAP is trying its best to take over Sabah and Sarawak while threatening BN by saying that BN did not serve in the best interest of the Sabahan and Sarawakian. According to Lim Kit Siang, the party will give special attention to the people of Sabah to ensure that the state will be taken away from BN in the next 14th General Election.
Even though they are ambitious to take Sabah, in the CEC election there are no Sabah candidates. As a consolation, DAP appointed a representative from Sabah to act as a committee member to show that the party is fair and just. Dr Edwin Bosi is the only representative from Sabah in the CEC DAP election.
Before this, the DAP is organizing an “adoption” program for targeted areas in Sabah where a group of Parliament Members and State Rep is appointed as supervisors to ensure their victory in the 14th General Election.
It is clear that the DAP is really trying to take over Sabah, however because of their “iron fisted” unwritten poicy, DAP leadership is reluctant in giving any powers to any Sabah representative.
The people of Sabah should realize from what is happening and learn to evaluate their relation with the DAP with and open mind. DAP without even a drop of conscience feels no pity or remorse, refused to change. Even though the CEC election continues with the existence of fraud, manipulation and discrimination, DAP is still continuing their dark legacy since the dawn of Merdeka.
Furthermore, the DAP has the guts to call a Chinese man as a representative of the Malay race.
For the people of Sabah, don’t ever forget that the DAP has already lied and oppress the Malays and Indians of Penang. The DAP discriminate and abuse their own party member who are from the Malay and Indian ethnic group in the DAP CEC election. Plus, the DAP has already abandoned their own Chinese people of Sabah and it is for sure that the DAP has no place for the non-Chinese locals from Sabah.
