In his desperate attempt to win the imaginations of the Chinese voters for this last political run, Emperorissimo of ‘Middle Malaysia’ and Adviser to Chinese Chauvinist DAP Lim Kit Siang demanded that Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to withdraw the latter’s blog posting of ‘Gelang Patah’ three days ago or risk being sued for “Writing falsehood”.
1. Kit Siang is going to contest in Gelang Patah.2. Why Gelang Patah?3. Obviously it is because Gelang Patah has a Chinese majority.
4. Obviously Kit Siang is going to play on Chinese sentiments.5. Johore has been an Alliance/Barisan Nasional stronghold ever since independence. The three races there have been supporting each other in elections. They do not have strong racist feelings.
6. But Kit Siang is going to bring about conflict and antagonism between the races, to wage the Chinese to dislike and hate the Malays.
7. The slogan of the DAP is Malaysian Malaysia, a slogan used by the PAP in the 1964 General Elections. The slogan implies that Malaysia did not belong to all Malaysians equally. It belongs to the Malays.
8. The PAP intended to get the Chinese not to co-operate with the Malays, to end the Sino-Malay “ kongsi” of the Tunku in the Alliance Party.
9. Kongsi means not taking all our entitlements for ourselves but sacrificing some so others may get their share.
10. The PAP rejected this “kongsi” principle demanding that everything be based on merit. When Singapore left Malaysia the DAP, the PAP Trojan horse, took up the Malaysian Malaysia slogan. The intention was to draw away Chinese support from the MCA and abandon the kongsi concept with UMNO and the Malays. The meritocracy promoted by the DAP will mean diminishing opportunities for the Malays in education and in business. This will result in the Malays becoming less and less qualified and poorer. Meritocracy is not about sharing but about the winners taking all.
11. When Kit Siang decided to contest in Chinese majority Gelang Patah it is because he wanted the Chinese there and in Johor to reject working together and sharing with the Malays.
12. An unhealthy racial confrontation would replace Sino-Malay cooperation which has made Malaysia stable and prosperous. That cooperation will end when Kit Siang wins Gelang Patah. Even if there will not be violent clashes as seen in many countries where people are divided by race or religion, but confrontation between the three major races in Malaysia will be disruptive and will not be conducive to the development of Malaysia.
13. For this reason the decision of Kit Siang to contest in Gelang Patah will be the focus of the 13th General Election in this country.
14. Will the DAP end Malay-Chinese friendship and cooperation in Johor or will “kongsi” remain the bases of race relations in Johor and in Malaysia?
The day before this demand was made, Emperissimo Lim called the Statesman “The greatest enemy of his own Bangsa Malaysia and Vision 2020”.
The fact is that, there is nothing ‘Malaysian’ about Lim and his bandit of Chinese Chauvinists. They are anti-Malaysia for the fact that they have incited and instigated provisions in the Federal Constitution such as Articles 153 and 11(4). He also time and again talked about having mobstreet-demonstration-turned-riot ‘Malaysian Spring’ as an avenue for the minority to assume power and control over the majority.
DAP in the past till present day is true and true a Chinese Chauvinist party. The clear demonstration is that in the 15 December 2012 Central Executive Committee election, not a single Malay was voted in.
Lim has been going around meeting the Chinese voters all over Southern Johor with his Chinese Chauvinist overtones. This is something that Johoreans are not used to. In fact, Johoreans for the longest time rejected Lim and DAP Chinese Chauvinism. After almost 40 democracy, only at the 12th Parliament saw the most number of DAP elected representatives in the State of Johor.
Johoreans without differentiating any ethnic groups have worked well together the past 150 years. When Father of Modern Johor Sultan Abu Bakar took over the throne, part of his modernisation of the state is to open up more lands for cultivation. He initiated policies and provided aids to ethnic Chinese entrepreneurs to stimulate the development of the state’s agricultural economy which was founded by Chinese migrants from Souther China in the 1840s.
Since then, Johorean Chinese have been allowed to develop themselves as well as the state, owning businesses, plantations and eventually large projects. Johorean Chinese have never had any issues with regards to their culture, heritage and religion all along and lived comfortably in the a state where Islamic education for primary kids are compulsory and almost all Johoreans are able to read and write in Jawi.
In fact Johor has the most number of Chinese schools in the country, at 214 Chinese schools and eight independent Chinese schools.
Johor is the perfect example of Barisan Nasional ‘kongsi-kuasa‘ (power sharing) concept where the majority of the Malays vote any of the candidates nominated by the national coalition party without any condition. The harmonious inter-racial relations in Johor had been so formidable that for eleven general elections, Non Malay BN candidates win with very strong margins.
Non Malay Politicians who were served as Excos of Johor State Government went on to bigger posts, as they progress. Examples are Dato’ Lim Si Cheng who assumed the post of Deputy Speaker of Dewan Rakyat and Dato’ Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek who was appointed Minister of Health.
An example is in Gelang Patah Parliamentary constituency. Before Opposition’s ‘Politics of Hatred’ strategy, BN managed to poll almost 32,000 majority. It is a very good example how the Malays and Non Malays could decide, without any external instigation.
Lim by his own admission, together with PAP MP for Bangsar Devan Nair formed DAP in Malaysia. Lim also became the political secretary of Devan Nair.
Lim is now in Johor to do nothing but destabilise the political harmony and good understanding and relationship between all the races which have been formed for so long. His track records as an MP since 1969 is a demonstration that he practically did nothing for his constituents but play ‘Politics of Hatred’ as discolour politics.
Now that Emperissimo Lim is trying his luck in the state where he was born 72 years ago but never contested since his involvement in Chinese Chauvinist politics just after the 2nd general election in 1964, Johoreans should be aware that he is in no way giving up his ‘Politics of Hatred’ game. Probably the moment he brings over his Chinese Chauvinism as a candidate in Johor, Johoreans should condor suing him instead.
In Pokok Sena, Kedah tonight, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad said Johoreans are extra-ordinary people.
“In Johor, all the races work very well together. Malays worked hard to ensure the Non Malays win during elections and vice-versa. Now Lim Kit Siang is contesting in Johor to instigate the Chinese and sow hatred against the Malays”.
He also commented in the recent DAP CEC election, no Malay leaders are elected.
“They had one Malay chap, Tunku Aziz. He is a Kedahan. Now, he left and working hard to tell who these DAP people really are”.
